Slow down mama, yes you…the mom who keeps telling your children to “hurry up”, who keeps counting to 10 in hopes that it makes them clean up their mess faster, the mom who has said hold on 723 times to that tiny hand pulling on your shirt! Breathe, mama. It’s okay to slow down. It’s okay to take time to breathe them in, the giggles, the silly jokes, the mess, the dirt, the chaos…slow down and soak that in because the moments are fleeting!…
Valentine’s Day means so much more to me these days!

I am sharing with you the top 3 ways to spread love this Valentine’s Day!…
We blinked and somehow here we are! 6 married years later, 3 kids, 3 houses built, moved to a new town and lotsssss of love & laughter! Can I just say I couldn’t have imagined it any better if I tried? When I say I feel so loved I truly get overwhelmed. My husband is my best friend, cliche, cheesy…whatever! He’s it.
You + me is just perfect.
Your love is constant.
The father you are to our children is something I have dreamed of my entire life.
You make me feel beautiful when I can’t even stand to look at myself in the mirror.
You choose us over everyone.
Your ability to make me laugh is something I treasure.
Your smile makes me weak.
You would hurt 1000x over to make sure we were safe..
I will never be able to repay you for your hard work that allows me to stay home with our babies.
The way you look at our babies is more than I can handle sometimes.
Your desire to date me does not go unnoticed.
Your love is more than enough and I don’t deserve all the things you do for me.
Thank you for being the most selfless, kind, loving and giving man. You are more than I ever dreamed of.
All my love
I can’t get over how quickly the years have flown by. It seriously feels like yesterday I was waking up with butterflies in my stomach waiting for the moment I would see Matt waiting for me. I remember what it felt like leaving our reception and knowing from that moment on it was just us. forever. I can not even begin to imagine my life without my husband. He is my rock. My saving grace on the days when I think I just can’t do this anymore. The comfort when I hurt. Never does he doubt my worth. He doesn’t care if I have laundry piled up to the ceiling, as a matter fact he often has “laundry parties” with me when I get behind. (We call them parties because it sounds way less dreadful) He cooks 90% of our meals. We just have this team effort thing down and I’m really pretty sure it’s what makes our marriage so strong. We’ve had highs and lows, laughter and tears, but one thing that has always remained the same is our love. However, if your marriage is not the same as ours and you’re starting to see signs that your marriage is not working, it’s maybe time to look for the best online divorce company.
Here’s to many many more years of loving you Matt! Happy Anniversary!
“I’m so in love with you
And I hope you know
Darling your love is more than worth its weight in gold
We’ve come so far my dear
Look how we’ve grown
And I wanna stay with you until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go” — James Arthur
The other day I was rushing around finishing up the last few things I needed to do for my kids for Christmas and I was quickly stopped in my tracks and overwhelmed with gratitude and tears! I was so caught up in all the things I needed to do and hadn’t stopped to think how great I have it as a mom! I have an amazing husband who fills my cup when it’s empty, thinks of me on hard days, takes some of the burdens off, sees the look in my eyes when I just can’t anymore and I can’t imagine how I would do it without him. If you are new to my blog or following me then you might not know that I lost my dad at a very young age. I was 6 when he died in a tragic accident (get more info from here about the lawyer who helped them) that forever changed our family. My mom was my rock and so many things I took for granted as a child and now being a mom myself I now see her in a new light….
So 3’s a crowd huh? Or at least 3 kids is to most people! I just don’t get it. Nor do I want to! The way most people have a negative outlook on families with 3 kids is something that has frustrated me for awhile now! I can’t tell you how many people told us to stop when we had “the perfect family” with one boy & one girl! I get it, that may be perfect for some but that wasn’t perfect for us and that’s okay! My 3 kids are my world and I think it’s so crucial to do what you feel is best for you & your family! I’ve always wanted 4 babies and some part of me still does, but my hubs does not so we have 3 and whatever happens I was made to be the mama of these 3 babes!…
