real life wednesday: Life Isn’t Perfect

♥ I tried to distract, “Mama, I wanna color my toes with boo paint” I tried to delay, “After dinner, sweetie” I tried to do it instead, “No mama, I wanna” I knew it was going to be a hot mess. I knew deep inside I was cringing at the thought. I knew if I […]



real life wednesday: Slowing Down

Sometimes it’s important to work for that pot of gold.  But other times it’s essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow. ~Douglas Pagels, These Are the Gifts I’d Like to Give to You […]

What a crazy day last Wednesday was. You know how you run upstairs to grab something & you can’t for the life of you remember what you climbed up those stairs for, so you have to go back downstairs & circle around trying to remember?  Well, yeah, this isn’t like that.  This is complete memory […]



real life wednesday: Burrito

So I decided to go with this pic for my “Real Life Wednesday” today. And here’s why!
