Constant Balancing Act

By 11:54 PM , , , ,

Life would you slow down some? Pretty please...

Don't let anyone ever tell you that you can't do it all. It can all be done. Just not all at once. 

Life is a constant balancing act. It is a constant battle of picking which aspect of your life is the lowest at the moment and working to pick it back up. 

For me the last few months of my life have been spent pouring in to my full time job that has become more like a job and half over the last several months. Because of all the time and effort I am pouring in to work I have had to be even more intentional around doing everything I can to make the precious time I get with my sweet hubby and baby boy count (I know he is 2.5 but he will always be my baby boy, ok). I so look forward to our weekend full of fun family memories and crave those precious hours when I am not traveling that I get to curl up with my baby in my lap and say prayers, read books, and sing songs. That night time routine is one of the best moments of my day and I really miss it the days I am traveling. 

That being said I know this is just a phase and am oh so thankful to work for a company I love and am passionate about and to be surrounded by work "family" that truly is my extensive of family outside my immediate family. But at the end of the day my family always has and always will be my number one priority. That being said I feel like the blog has taken a back burner over the last few weeks and I am sorry. 

Just a great reminder to lean on God because He is the only one who knows the plans for us and the only one who can feel you up. 

I have so much to share with you sweet friends and so little time.

So why not start with what our life has looked like outside of work lately.

* We are in the VERY beginning process of designing our dream farm house to build on the land I grew up on - to say I am excited is an understatement - it is funny how your prospective changes over time, you would have asked me five years ago if I ever thought I would want to build on and raise my family in my forever home on the land I grew up on and my answer would have been an abundant "no." Now, there is nothing I would love more. We still have a lot of variables to figure out including timing, etc. but have just about settled on a house plan (hubs drew it himself) and are already falling in love with dreaming of our future in our own family compound in our dream farm house. 

This picture was taken a few weeks ago when we were out staking out where our house will go. This is our little two year old playing in the Little Tykes house I played in when I was two. It is over 25 years old! Pretty good plastic I would say. ;) 

* E, our two year old, has discovered raking and jumping in leaves and it is his new past time. This kid cracks me up. 

* Hubby's truck broke down (like literally stopped running) on the interstate in Atlanta this weekend with E in the back seat. HUGE praise they are both ok but we are bummed over the cost associated with repairing this new truck that we have already poured a lot on money in to this year. Goodbye vacation. Hello same money sucking pit of a truck. Hope we enjoy you as much as we would have Hawaii. 

* This past weekend we headed up to our family lake home for some much needed R&R. My grandmother recently purchased a new pontoon and we all approved. 

Well that's life for now. I am writing from a hotel room in San Antonio and falling asleep so must end for now. Goodnight friends.
