Day in the life – All in a day’s work

Not all stories are told with words and I wanted to bring my own stories and those of my family to life, starting with my dad. This is his element and it was exciting to see my brother and him share a work day. Enjoy!

The best you

There is always that glimmer of hope that someday I will have it all together, someday there will be balance. This quote by Joanna Gaines encourages us that it’s not about balance at all.
“It’s not even balance, it’s about getting it done and doing the best you can.”- Joanna Gaines. 

The second piece to the puzzle is mentality. Many days I find myself focusing on all those tasks I didn’t get done leaving a sense of failure and frustration behind. The reality is you have to see the good to experience the good. So instead of doing it all, I am doing what I can the best I can.

Every day is a new blend and some things might not get done every single day, but the trick is learning to be okay with it. Have an amazing day!

Here’s to the greatest of friends that bless our lives and inspire us.

Monday Moods

In the coziness of our home this rainy Monday, I notice the mood/feel of the whole house had changed dramatically since the beautiful weekend. The glow of the previous sunny days was replaced by a flat white light reaching across each room creating dramatic darks and shadows.

Rainy days might seem like the mood breaker but as my mom would say be a glass half full Sophia. Okay mom this one’s for you, and I’m using the darkness of a dreary day to really see the light. Have a great day everyone!
