So, I'm back. I think. I hope.

Honestly, I'm hesitant to declare myself back to bloggy-land when my main goal at the end of each day is to remember to wash my face. 

I would blame laziness for my departure from this space, but I am certainly not lazy. I don't have time to be lazy. Hell, I have to include normal, simple hygiene (like washing my hair) on my daily to-do list to make sure that it gets done.

But with all that said...

I am so stinkin happy, it's stupid.

Like, even though my kids are literally sucking the life out of me most days, I get on my knees and praise God every night that this is my life. Cause it's good. And full and noisy and chaotic and everything that I could ever want.

I mean...c'mon!

I get the privilege of bringing another new life into the world. Who, by the way, is a beautiful, healthy baby GIRL.

A girl who will be called Josephine. Or as Remy likes to call her..Jo-sha-sheen.

Just the other night, as I made my way to bed, I tiptoed from room to room, taking a moment to watch each one of children's chests rise and fall, safe and secure in their beds. I silently thanked God and decided that if this is as good as it ever gets for me, well then..I've made it.

Life is so full and so sweet. And that's where I've been.

  7. Somehow I missed this post last week. I'm SO glad you're back, even if only occasionally. I was a lurker for a long while, but I want you to know that your blog has been one of my favorites.
