...but wouldn't trade it for the world! Let me start off by saying that what I'm saying shouldn't be thought of as's nothing of the sort. I consider myself blessed to be experiencing's a crazy ride, but I've never felt more "whole". Everything in life has more meaning now that my little monkey is here! All this love in my heart (for a tiny person)
is something I wasn't sure if I would ever have the opportunity to feel...and for that I am so very thankful! That being said, I'm wooped ladies! I AM WIPED OUT!I'm sure by now you've all noticed my posts becoming less and less frequent. My comments on your blogs are practically non-existant. Make no mistake, it's nothing personal. I appreciate your bloggy friendships...the advice, encouragement, and love you show me is a blessing. It's been nice to get to know so many women willing to share their lives and experiences.
Anyway, the whole reason for my absence is that, well, I am a wife, I have a two month old, I'm a full time college student, looking for employment, in the middle of a move from one state to the get the idea. Yes, when I see it all written down I can't help but think I might be borderline INSANE! I have no intention of discontinuing my blog, in fact I hope to get back to some semblance of a schedule...I love blogging...but I don't forsee that happening until little man decides he likes schedules. Ladies, I could possibly have the world's most inconsistent baby! LOL! From the womb this boy was completely unpredictable. Everything in his time, his way...everyday is different! He still doesn't really sleep too much at night. No matter what I do, his feeding schedule is all out of whack, he's just plain and simple his own little person! Which is fine...but mommy sure is gonna try to get some sort of schedule going...for her sanity's sake. Anyone who thinks GOD doesn't have a sense of humor, send them my way...I'd like to tell them a story of a strict schedule lovin' mamma who got the sweetest, cutest, no schedule lovin' unpredictable baby...aka ME.

So...I will be moving this weekend. From FL to GA. I am happy to say good-bye. Neither of us were happy here and it just never felt like "home". Excited for what the future holds for our little family. We keep telling ourselves,
"this is our year"...and believe me I am praying it is! We've had some crazy and difficult years and we are ready for a break! Baby J sure is the perfect start!
Thank you to those who gave me advice with the resume. I figured as much, but wanted to make sure. It's been a while and I haven't had much luck finding work where we lived the last two years.

I still have so much to do in the next couple of days, along with my schoolwork (including my mid-term). I hope I can manage.

So...if you don't hear from me for a while, I WILL BE BACK. You can always keep up with me on facebook if you have it :) Much love to you all!


PS- Baby Bennett is expected to come home next week!!!! PRAISE GOD! That is such awesome news. You can find out more about him by clicking on his little button on the right side of my blog :) Go Baby Bennett. Remember to keep praying for Brayden. He's still having some issues. He and his mommy and daddy spent the holidays in the please keep them in your prayers. His button is also on the side of my blog.



  1. Phew! Take a good break little mother! We'll see you soon!

  2. This WILL be your year, don't you worry :)

  3. No you are NOT complaining... you are a mother. And as glorious and wonderful and "wouldn't trade it for the world" as it is... it is also EXHAUSTING!! :)

    And sometimes it helps to get it out... like you said to me... "If we lived closer, I would be apart of your village!"
    (Especially if it meant I got to snuggle that sweet boy, while mommy caught up on... well take your pick from the above load you mentioned! Heehee!)

  4. Are we the same person?! Haha! I love schedules and planning everything... Aidan did not in the beginning. It drove me crazy not knowing what was coming next! You are not alone and are not complaining! People told me that he would find a schedule when he was ready and he did. Now I can generally predict when he'll wake up, eat, nap, all that good stuff. It'll come Mama! :) Also, Aidan did not sleep well at night from the beginning and (as you recently read), still doesn't. :( He is pretty good most nights, but when he's teething it's bad... that does get better too! HUGS! Email or FB me if you need to vent anytime!

    Also, we are moving from FL soon too! Never felt like home for us either!! :)

  5. I honestly don't know how you handle it all! That's so much for one momma to deal with! I've got my grandma here for another two weeks to help me out, and somedays I still feel like I may very well lose my mind. And I'm just talking about taking care of my baby. You've got like a billion other things going on! Praying for you girl! Good luck with everything. You really will be missed while you take your break. Come back soon!

  6. Completely understand! I pray that your move is safe and that God will pour out his blessings upon you this year. Love you!
