time out

I'll level with you, my friends. It has been a rough couple of weeks for me.  My mom's birthday is in a couple weeks, and whenever that date draws near I always seem to go through a pretty big internal struggle.  With some big question marks on the horizon, and a few recent bad days, I've found myself missing her even more than usual. I've been experiencing a slew of those moments where I think the only thing to ease the pain would be talking to her. While I realize I can still do this, I really miss hearing her voice, her advice, and her loving encouragement.

While it's been tough to feel inspired lately, I'm slowly starting to feel myself find those pretty little things that make the days (and those tough times) feel less intense.  Good + big things are coming...I can feel it!


  1. Isn't it funny that no matter how old you get, the thing that makes you feel like you can see clearly is your mom? I know this time of year is hard for you but you've done such amazing things so far! So really, it's only up from here :)

    Plus you're making this fellow okie feel super envious of some of the amazing things you get to do in Cali! Lots of love!

    1. I know, I was just thinking that! Thank you so much :) You're so sweet!! I'm really enjoying your blog, too :)

  2. Praying for you, sweet girl :-)
