The fast, exhausting season

By 10:55 PM , , , , , , , , , , ,

Too Blessed to be stressed. If I had to pick one phrase to sum up our life lately that would be it. This would quickly be followed by, "time is flying." Somehow we have a 4 year old and a 6 month old. Why is it that life goes so much faster with the second child than it did with the first? I mean wasn't I just sharing with the world we were pregnant?

To bring you up to speed on life lately and hopefully extend some grace my way as to why the blog has taken a bit of a back road for a season I have been on the road a lot with what feels like my still new to me job that I have now been in for over a year as of June. We bought a new house and move in to it in just one week! Yes, more on that later. Our current house in which we have lived in for the past 6+ years and brought both of our babies home to is for sale. Oh and we bought a golf cart because where we are moving (only in the south ya'll) people ride golf carts to stores, restaurants, etc. and we are oh so excited to join the golf cart bubble. 

Our 6 month old suffers from severe reflux, is crazy social, and loves life. She truly could not be sweeter. Our 4 year old is turning into a boy and no longer a baby before our eyes (cue all the tears). He has started Pre-K and is rocking it writing words and drawing pictures. He loves building and wants to be just like his daddy, which let's be honest, would be a great thing.




My sweet, wonderful husband is pretty much winning at life and is not only killing it at his work life but is a rock star when it comes to holding down the fort at home while I travel for work which is NO easy feat. Especially with a baby that still wakes up several times a night. 

As for me...I'm just busy trying to juggle it all and not go totally crazy. The ball closest to the ground is the one I continually try to bounce higher while sometimes catching an unexpected ball or two with my knee on their way down. While if I am honest I feel like I am living in a perpetual state of exhaustion and my memory is awful due to the sheer volume of information and things to keep up with I have swimming through my head at any given point (hints why I try to write everything down). However, I realize just how blessed I am to have two wonderful kids, an amazing husband, a great job with a company and team I love, and great friends to walk beside me on this journey of life. We are trying to soak up the little joyful moments of life whether planned (like our upcoming Labor Day weekend at the lake) or unplanned like a late night game last night of Disney Scene-It with the family and just enjoy this truly fast, truly exhausting, but truly wonderful season of life. 

I am in this great season of learning the importance of intentality right now. Whether it be the couple of moments that I get to spend as I stop in at my daughter's daycare to feed my daughter and kiss on her before catching my next flight, or the photos I take of the stuffed animal I take of my son's on my trips, stolen ice cream dates with my kiddos, or being intentional on spending time with my husband or my friends I am learning that because time is so fast and so limited in this season I must be very, very intentional if I am to make my time count the best. 




I encourage you my friends to be just as intentional with your time. Remember each day is a gift. All in all I think this quote says it best.
