25 weeks & a new year


as far as our new year's celebration went, it was nice and quiet. we were in bed before midnight and had a nice talk about what this new year might look like - what we would like it to look like. i feel so very thankful that my husband and partner on this journey, wants the same things as i do, for each other, creatively, spiritually, and for our family, growing as it is. i want so many things for this new year but the main thread of it all is acceptance. i want to accept life as it comes, the joys and the heartaches. yes, especially those. and at the risk of sounding super cheesy i want to learn how to continually accept myself.  all of me. every single day. even the parts of me that drive me crazy. because there will soon be three little ones who I will be be an example to and I can't think of a better gift to model for them then the gift of self acceptance.

  4. Your hair always looks so pretty!

    And I know what you mean about self-acceptance. I think it's even more important when you have a little girl. You are going to be an amazing mama to that little one! (And obviously, you already are one to your boys!)
