While driving in our minivan this week, two car seats buckled behind me, I couldn’t help but think to myself “This is the life!” (Yup, while in the minivan. Sometimes I still can’t believe that I drive a minivan. And love it. Ha!) Our life is no where near perfect. We have our less than stellar moments, terrible, horrible, no good days, kids crying at the grocery store checkout line, and toddler tantrums. I lose my patience and run on exhaustion, dinner is typically an afterthought, the laundry is piled up all over our dresser and I often feel like I do the same thing, every day. And yet, I can’t help but think I have the luckiest job in the world. It’s exhausting and hard and the hours are killer, but it’s the most satisfying, rewarding job I’ve ever had. Nothing beats hearing Addie laugh for the first time or having Ellie wrap her little arms around my neck and say “You’re my best fwiend!”


I’ve been trying to be better at capturing this stage we’re in. I always remember to photograph our adventures and vacations, but sometimes I forget that our moments together at home are just as important, if not more so. It’s where we have the most learning moments (for all of us!), the most laughter, the most memories. Along with photos, I’m trying to take a few more video clips of our days at home. The juggle between playtime and chores, naptime and sneaking in a little work. Building blocks and pouring milk. This little video below was one of my absolute favorites to put together:

Whether we’re at home or out and about, I’ve found that these LuLaRoe pieces are my absolute favorite! Be it the skirts, leggings, dresses, or tops, they’re the perfect combination of cute and comfortable. I love that they add a playful sense to my wardrobe – both in terms of pattern and color and the fact that I can PLAY in them! I love when I find clothing that allows me to get down on the floor and build trains or chase Ellie around at the park, but still looks cute!


My cute friends, Sam and Missy, are graciously offering a LulaRoe Julia Dress to one lucky reader! And you won’t be disappointed. This dress is amazingly comfortable and has the perfect sleeve length and fit! I think I’m going to have to stock up on several, I could wear these everyday! The giveaway will run through October 9th, open to US readers only. All entries will be verified. You can enter the giveaway below! Good luck!
