While I am so happy for him, at the same all I can think is "slow down time!" It's hard to believe Brian and I known each other for a decade, been married for nearly nine years, Grant is six and Hannah is seven months old. It's all been the blink of an eye. I can tend to constantly be looking forward to the next thing, which really causes me to forget to enjoy today and what's going on now. Yes, being a mom is exhausting, but their is no place I'd rather be than with my family.
As the new school year starts my time with the kids and Brian decreases greatly. I'm really going to be working to spend quality time with them each day. The rush of dinner and cleaning and baths makes the time fly, ends up with me just checking things off my list. I want to work to be present at home, off social media, and remembering how quickly time flies and work to enjoy the time I have with my family now.
I recently scored this top in Old Navy for $5. I love the cute and style. It will easily transition to wearing for school with my white jeans too, which I love. I have a handful of these cardigans from J.Crew Factory. I love the cut and style and they are the perfect laying piece for a tank or over dresses for school. I just ordered one in white too, which I'm looking forward to getting. My old one from Kohls needed to be retired, so it was time to buy. : )
