Be Bold, Be Brave, Be You.

Found this print at Target over the weekend! #TargetForTheWin

This week has been a world wind. Lunches with some wonderful women and one amazing email later, makes me truly thankful for this ride.

Last week I expressed my frustration with the ride and being still. I did promise to give it my best shot though. Funny thing is, when you actually hunker down and get serious, things happen.

It’s on God’s time.

Over the course of the last few months I have changed my outlook, my perspective on life. It’s been AMAZING and has created a cascading affect on everything in my personal life, motherhood especially. This is something I will talk about more in upcoming posts, but for now I will just focus on the present. June – my month to be still and everything that has happened this week.

My week began with giggling girls and fun adventures. Library story time and nature walks, just to name a few. Then a mid-week lunch with a dear friend, whom my girls lovingly refer to as Aunt. She broke up the seriousness of my thoughts with some lighthearted laughter. Obliged my oldest with some SnapChat fun and got the little one to warm up a bit. Sometimes what we need most is to put our thoughts away for a time and just enjoy the moment. Thank you my dear, sweet friend!

Thursday met with an e-mail I had been anxiously awaiting. I was stunned to see it in my inbox. It took me a moment, but I dived right in! The e-mail was EVERYTHING I needed to hear. Funny how that works right!? She talked about the three phases of entrepreneurship- Enlightenment, Info Dumping, and Clarity.

As she expressed, I am definitely in the Enlightenment and Info Dumping phases. I am reading and listening to everything I can get my hands on. It’s as if my soul has been awakened and I am searching for my purpose, my passion. It is difficult to describe, but I’ll try. It’s like looking at a dim screen with dull colors. The more I listen and read, the more the screen brightens and the colors become vibrant. The sky is not the limit, there is no limit to what I can accomplish.

“Be still and know that I am God.” -Psalm 46:10

Friday came and I found myself driving more than an hour to have lunch with some wonderful women I only get to see a few times a year. I took this opportunity to talk with God. First thanking him for this amazing life. Then telling him I am working on Being Still, but that it’s a lot harder than I thought it would. I told him about the questions I was still pondering and my quest for answers. I also acknowledged that I knew these answers would come on his time and I would continue making an effort to focus on the ride.

God’s Presences.

During lunch I was speaking to these lovely ladies, telling them everything about my journey. It was as if God was speaking through them, telling me exactly what I needed to hear. I see a possible destination in site. The path is much clearer now. It’s going to take a lot of effort and hard work, but I will get there.

For now, I am going to sit back and enjoy the ride!

{Twinkle Twinkle It’s A Sprinkle}

My dear friend Kaitlin was sweet enough to host a Sprinkle Shower for me. She is quite the creative soul, making desserts and decorations that matches the nursery theme! So, I spent this past weekend with a great group of women celebrating the upcoming arrival of princess #2. It was a sweet, cozy affair full of laughter as we all shared stories of our motherhood journey!

Kaitlin truly out did herself with the lavender frosted cupcakes, paper flowers, banner, and dragonfly cut outs for guest to write a wish for the baby. Not only were the decorations for the Sprinkle lovely, but they will also provide the first decorations for the nursery! While I still don’t feel ready for her arrival, the Sprinkle did help to check off a few to-do’s.

When you spend your days chasing after a toddler, your current pregnancy can easily get overlooked. So spending the afternoon with an amazing group of women, celebrating this sweet baby girl was just what I needed! This sweet, little girl is already loved by so many! As I looked around the room, I realized how truly blessed I am to have these strong women in my life to love and support not only me, but my daughters as well.

How do you celebrate each pregnancy?
