Fall, in general, is always the busiest time of year for me. It starts off with three birthdays in October, and then carries onto another three in November. Throw in Halloween and Thanksgiving, Black Friday ….and then December is here.
My wedding anniversary is this month.
99% of my shopping has been done.
Children’s activities are in full swing, and the little down time at home that we have is spent on baking, decorating, and Christmas movies.
I’m not complaining, in fact, I love it. So much!
I can’t imagine a life without family things.
My kids are a huge part of my life.
I thought as they got older, it would start to feel somewhat empty. But I’m quickly realizing that it’s even more fulfilling.
I love being a mother so much!
I have never been able to relate to other mothers who complain about their kids, or look forward to having them in school, and not at home.
Of course this is the only life I’ve ever known. And my kids are extremely well behaved, and genuinely enjoy spending time with each other.
I suppose if there was arguing and fighting all day, I’d feel very different about family life.
I think we want to give our children the life we never had. And for me, it was two very absentee parents. So for my family life, stability and focus, has always been my number one priority. It’s important to me, for my kids to have the stability and unconditional love that I never had growing up.
And that’s all I’m going to share on that.
I need to get up out of bed and get motivated. I see that my daughter has left me a cup of tea next to my bed before she left for class this morning. ❤️
I’ve been laying here since 6am thinking about this coming week.
We leave in a few days for a mini vacation.
My husband surprised me with K-Love Christmas concert tickets, and I’m very excited. He’s very introverted and doesn’t like crowds, so this really was a true act of LOVE. ❤️
Moving on to some activities in pictures.
Our first snow! It’s been in the 30’s. ❄️🌨
Stunning picture of our American flag that I took in Greensboro, NC the other day.
