so thankful.

life lately in a nutshell...
has been engulfed by big moments and little moments. Lately, I've been so captivated by some big life changing moments and then yet again completely moved by the smallest moments from my two littles. Its all these moments that I don't want to forget and always remember. I'm taking the time these days to just watch Sophia and Zaylee play... step away from the computer or worse yet.. (the cell phone) to watch my own children grow..and not so much others.  

Sophia has just been blowing me away with the things she is saying lately. Almost everyday i am needing to jot down all the cute things she is saying.. because i never want to forget. Here is just one of the many things wonderful things out of my 3 year old's mouth, "mom, i need Santa's cell phone number. I need to call him." Kids these days... amazing, whatever happened to writing a hand written letter and sending it to the north pole? 

Zaylee is my mover and shaker. At 7 months she is my crawler... and my curious little monkey. She is the most joyful little baby in the world. Her smile is contagious. She is my little light. I squeeze her everyday and tell her "i love you" about a 100 times (and many times thats not enough). 

annnnd you all already know how i feel about mike, so i just wont even go there ;) 

i am so thankful for this life that i am given.

dreaming of

farm living. as long as i can remember...i have always been in love with the idea of living on a farm. and whenever we visit my in-laws back east its a big treat for me to stay in the country with them. just recently, mike's grandpop passed away and he is truly the first real farmer i have ever met in my life. He has the oldest farm in the city of Baltimore county and his stories and love for the farm life just makes me want to pick up my family and move to a little piece of land where the pastures are green and the cows and the chickens run free.
i would love to walk outside like this every morning to grab some breakfast eggs

I am up early this morning and ready to march out to VOTE! This is one of the most important elections of our time...especially since morality and religious freedom is being so blatantly targeted . Praying that God's will be done in this country...and anticipating the results tonight!

life lately has been crazy non stop around here and this weekend hasn't slowed down. yet, we are taking some quiet moments in between to make delicious tacos at home and have one heck of a dance party in the bedroom before bedtime. (you should have seen the moves Sophia busted out.. mike and i almost peed our pants laughing. 

i'm learning more about simplicity lately. finding happiness in simplicity...and learning to live with very little. sometimes in life, i think we find "happiness" through a lot of material goods..and soon after a while.. the novelty of that item wears off... and then you are in the search for some more material goods to later find yourself empty again. our soul longs for something even greater and bigger than ourselves... and i think when you search your soul deep enough, you'll find that love is all that matters.
