This Stage

Mother's Day
Mother's Day
It's been months since I've updated this little space of mine- months that were filled with simply surviving our brutal Minnesota winter, kitchen demo work, and reading our little gal's Frozen book more times that I care to admit. Yes, she can now recite it… and so can we.

Having a little time away from this space has been a good thing, it's helped me to rearrange my priorities and allow myself the flexibility to step away from the computer and to work on other things, like making our house more of a home or baking up some fresh bread for dinner instead of being a slave to editing photos and coming up with a few pithy captions when I didn't really feel like writing. To tell the truth, I'm not even completely sure that I'm ready to jump back in with both feet. These past weeks for our family haven't been the easiest. They've been filled with children pushing the boundaries and some new medical challenges that surprised us. While we've been busy taking the good with the bad, all of this hasn't left me with much extra energy and, at the end of the night, it's usually all I can do to collapse on the couch next to Jonathan, much less picking up my computer and crafting another story about our lives.

But despite the good and the bad, for however long it lasts, I'm here today. In the face of the threatening storm clouds, we headed outside to brave the tantrums of tired children to snap a couple quick photos to remember this stage of life. This stage has been tough and messy and not anything like what we pictured it would be, but it's life right now and it's something we want to remember.

So to all the mamas out there, happy Mother's Day! Enjoy this special day with your loved ones and embrace the here and now.
