Easter Fun

I know that I have been kind of missing in the blogging world, there has been so much going on.... But I wanted to show everyone Noah's Easter and the fun we had.
After 4 easter baskets, 3 egg hunts, countless candy, and many sugar highs
I'd say Noah had a spectacular Easter {week}!!!

want to see where I got this tie pattern Noah is wearing? Click HERE

It was days like this that made me so happy and content to be with family, Grateful that I have my Noah and that he is healthy and beautiful, and thankful that our Savior was risen on this day for us.
I hope all of you found happiness on your Easter as well!

P.S. We have a great giveaway coming soon, so stay tuned!!!

These are the moments

Its these moments that remind me that I can and WILL keep going on
Its these moments that remind me of the beauty of childhood innocence
Its in these moments that I remember why God sends us such beautiful blessings like little boys
 It was in this moment that I was GRATEFUL that it still doesn't look like spring in the middle of April 
(but only for a moment) ;-)

I love you Noah

P.S. Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have been feeling discouraged about my blog.... But I am out of my "rut" and will be a better "blogger"! I promise!

Letting go....

SITS is an amazing blogging community of women just like me... and they just launched a new blogging series where we take a stand and say THIS IS ME, I am a Real woman and I am Vulnerable and I am completely okay with that!!!
SO here I am joining in because I think its time I let go... 

If my dishes sit in the sink for days and pile high, its okay because I am NOT Perfect
If Noah plays in his diaper until noon that is okay because I am NOT perfect
If my bed never gets made thats okay because I am NOT perfect.
 Today I am setting a new goal, to let go...
to let go of the imperfections
to let go of the worry of what people will think of me if my dishes are piled HIGH
to let go of that "perfect" vision and realize we can have a different version of perfection

Join in with us at SITS and lets be REAL and let's let go together!!!
What will you let go?

My Childhood dream lived through Noah...

Ever since I was little I dreamed of living in the country and I dreamed of everything it entailed, like feeding animals on a farm
 riding on tire swings
 riding on a tractor
 you know the whole "country" Life style?
Well, we have moved to the country and I couldn't be more pleased to watch my son do all of those things
 I never got to do

My heart melted when I walked outside and saw this... it was something just as simple as watching my son on a tire swing!
Okay, so its not a tractor but its close enough,
 Here's Noah helping grandpa plow the garden

And my Noah feeding the chickens,
He also gets to feed Llamas
cows and horses!!
I have to say he is A VERY LUCKY BOY!

I absolutely LOVE that he gets to raised in the simplicity of "farm life"
This is how it should be!
