Insta-Friday & a long overdue {Update}

Well Folks, Christmas came and went... I realize that this blog has been sorely neglected. I suppose I just haven't had either the physical or creative energy to write or share. It's such an amazing privelige to be carrying another sweet baby and to be entrusted to spend my days with my little girl. I must admit that it hasn't been easy lately. I'm sure it's a combination of hormones, and winter-blues, morning all-day sickness, and general fatique, but this Mama has been in a funk. I had a hard time finding joy these past few months and when I stop and see all the many blessings all around me... I know it's not a true lack of joy... it's a bit of depression. It slowly crept in while I was laying on the couch, trying to will the nausea away and wanting so desperately to find the energy to create and blog, cook, nest, and all those things that usually come naturally to me.  There are actually quite a few new projets to share with you...handmade christmas gifts, furniture built... I just couldn't find the energy to share. So this is my confession... I have not been myself. I'm praying hard that this too shall pass and that I'll soon find energy and excitement to be in this space more often. Until then... here's a snapshot of our days via Instagram...



  1. This will indeed pass. Do what's most important and remember, rest is never a waste of time. For a mommy it's vital. The blues will turn to warm sun light soon, promise.

  2. Thanks for the honesty! Makes me feel so much better about myself! Isn't pregnancy completely different with a little one running around zapping what little energy you do have? Best of luck to you!!

  3. I hope you feel better soon! I think this time of year doesn't help, as well as being pregnant! Hang in there :)

  4. Winter can be rough, and I've notice it is just a tad bit more difficult as a mama. Know you are not alone as a mama who struggles with melancholy during this time of year.

    Congrats on your new blessing!

  5. YAY!!! Just got done looking around your blog...I haven't blogged in a while! CONGRATS!! I'm so excited for you! Remember the the enemy is working hard to steal, kill and destroy your joy so just keep smiling and enjoying your abundant life!!!
