I can't believe it!

Some days I can't even believe that this is my job. Today is one of those gorgeous days and I get to spend it with the boys. I am loving it.

These pictures were taken on Mother's day. I had a beautiful Mother's Day weekend with Jared and the boys. My pastor's message Sunday was encouraging but at the same time it really made me feel the weight of raising these boys. I feel unbelievably blessed that God gave me children and I seek to honor Him in the way I raise them. He talked about how, as a nation, we need to raise children to make a difference because change needs to happen. All so true and at this stage for me it begins with taking care of their daily needs. So often I see the things that I do as mundane when in reality I am investing in Alex and Eli's future. Very exciting and humbling!

Happy Mother's Day woman!!!! Okay, I'm late, but whatever.

You and the boys are too cute. And of course you have on cute shoes. As always!

I missed your three column layout! Bummer. I wish at times to only have the wider 2 column, but then I would have to scroll forever...bloggy frustrations. And now you know why I only have a nasty white background. The others dont fit
