Happy Friday, friends! I hope you’re having a great week. It’s been a great one for us. We’re still vacationing in Barcelona and loving every minute of this fun city. If you’ve been following my stories (@beautifully_candid) then you’ve probably seen a glimpse of some of our fun.
This week I decided to share something different for my favorites. I typically share my favorite things from the week but this time around I’m sharing more about my most recent Mother’s Day and a look back at some of my mom related posts that I’ve shared. Come along with me as we take a further look…
This year Mother’s Day was a complete washout for us. I’m talking it poured the entire day. There wasn’t more than 10 minutes where it slowed up a bit. The Saturday before was a beautiful day and really all around just gorgeous. We had A’s t-ball game bright and early and then had the rest of the day to do whatever we wanted. I love days like that. I was able to snap this pic with the boys while we were outside taking a stroll, and it’s a good thing I did because it was such a chilly wet mess the next few days we would have never been able to get one outside. Well, a dry one at least. I’m pretty sure they would have been up for jumping in puddles if I suggested that.
Even though Mother’s Day in itself was one big rain puddle, it was still nice to get together with everyone for brunch. I mean, brunch is always a win in my book. We went to church in the morning and our pastor’s wife gave a great message and then afterwards we headed to meet up with our moms and family. We might have all looked like drowned rats by the time we got inside, but the company made up for it. None of us ended up taking any pictures together which makes me sad because I never even got one with my mom. I’ll have to make it a priority next time. Womp, womp.
Honest Thoughts On Being a Mom of Three:
This was my most recent mom related post where I shared more about what it’s been like going from two kids to three. We still have days that can make me feel crazy and others that are filled with so much love. That’s the interesting part about being a mom. I can honestly say that no two days are really the same.
What I’ve Learned Since Becoming a Mother:
I shared this before I had three little boys to love. I always enjoy looking back at older posts and seeing where my thoughts and feelings where in that moment. What I love about when bloggers share their heart is, no matter what season we’re all in, there’s usually always something we can relate to each other about. That’s why I shared what I’ve learned since becoming a mother.
7 Goals Every Mom Should Have For Herself:
I love to hear from others and what’s worked well for them on this parenthood journey. There was a point in time where I tried to be supermom and asking for help wasn’t the easiest for me. As my motherhood journey has progressed, and our family has expanded, I’ve learned over time that grace is a beautiful thing and having goals for yourself as a mother can be really helpful.
That Time Momming Caught Up With Me:
I feel like I’ve always tried to be transparent on here and really write as if I was sitting down one on one and talking with you. I think this post was a bit of a turning point for me. I can appreciate inspiring and uplifting messages but when you become a loyal reader of someones blog and not just a one time Pinterest find, you can start to feel connected to each other and genuinely care about each other. This post taught me that it’s ok to let my guard down. That a lot of other people have thought and felt the same way that I did. That motherhood is messy and trying and we all have our days. It’s still one of my most viewed posts and I’m always so appreciative of the love and support you all share.
In case you missed it, I also shared earlier this week how our laundry room/mudroom renovation went and how it all tied in together. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
