Monday Moments of Gratitude - May 16, 2016

Monday, May 16, 2016

I'm so happy you're here!! 

I'm making a point to post on Mondays about moments I am grateful for in the past week. We can all use a little more intentional thinking about things we're grateful for. With that said, I hope you'll continue to join me in gratitude on Mondays :)

Here are a few moments from this past week that I am grateful for:

Cheeky guy being cheeky - if you follow me on Facebook, you may have already seen this and the aftermath lol This little monkey does this ALL the time now and is soaked after EVERY meal! 
At first I was frustrated with having to change him after every meal but honestly, it's kind of hilarious and clearly super cute. 

Perfect evenings - husband home early, dinner cooked on the BBQ, relaxing outside with the ones I love the most and a glass of wine. Yup. Perfect. Some days are hard but some nights make it so worth it.

Hair accomplishments - this one is kind of silly but I have to tell you as a mom of a little girl I have embarrassingly little hair-skills. I have attempted a total of 3 french braids in my life. My friend Sarah always has the BEST hairstyles (seriously, I'm in awe of her skills) so when she shared a tutorial video of how to do a french braid on yourself I knew I had to try. For a first attempt I think I did alright, no?

Tacos and wine - ya, I skipped my workout and had tacos, I felt guilty about the decision for about 5 seconds because, well, tacos and wine are delicious. Don't worry, I worked out the next day, I swear. Sometimes, you just have to cut yourself a little slack or give in to taco and wine cravings... just sayin'.

Picnics in the park - Wednesday literally had the perfect weather forecast so I asked my mom if she wanted to come and have a picnic with the kids and I. I'll have you know, prepping for and cleaning after a picnic is A LOT of work but my gosh, seeing the smiles on my kids faces was more than worth it. They had a blast and I enjoyed basking in the sun while they played happily at the park. 

Motherhood and life are certainly NOT perfect but I hope you are finding some solace, some comfort, in the beautiful moments that are handed to you every single day. 

Have a beautiful week friends.
