Weekly Mantra //

January 23, 2017 in mantra

I’m not gonna lie — we’re coming off of the weirdest and best weekend, y’all. Last night it felt like midnight even though it was 6:45pm. That part was pretty awful; but the rest? The rest was glorious.

And this week, well, specifically, today, Miss Bea turns ONE.More on her first birthday party later, but I must say that I am in awe of her greatness; of her ability to be a complete stinker but still somehow make people love her like crazy. So yeah. Today you can expect me to be emotional. Crazy, crazy, emotional.

I’m grateful for the small gathering of people who decided to come together and celebrate the survival of one whole year with us. I text a friend on Saturday morning and said “It’s honestly amazing that either of us (meaning me and Remy) survived.”

I’m absolutely content. Typically I go way overboard with parties. I just can’t help it — I love throwing parties! But this time I really just kept it to family. Less stress, right?? Well, mostly.

I wish and hope that this week goes much differently than last week. Don’t get me wrong — last week started out alright; but it quickly took a turn for the worse. But this week? This week will be different. Ya see, I have about a gazillion things going on this week. And I’m beyond excited about them all! So this week must go well! It just must!

I’m happy that I not only had time to spend time with my family this weekend, but I was able to snuggle Ari all night last night. That, my friends, is a pretty perfect way to round out the weekend.

Weekly Mantra: 

SO MANY FEELS for this quote, friends. Yes, last week was MLK day; but over the last week I’ve had a mega desire to spread the light. Have a good Monday, friends. xo

Awesome quote! I’ve always been partial to one by Eleanore Roosevelt, “It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” Great perspective, and post. Have a great week!

Last week was a crazy week for me as well, on top of which, my daughter turned 5. How is this possible?! I could have sworn she just turned 1. Time goes by so quickly. And I love the quote you chose. My heart has been feeling very full lately despite the hard things happening. I hope you have a great week!

Happy first bday to your kiddo! I think a weekly mantra is great, a daily one can be too much sometimes, but I like the idea of having a mantra theme for the week 🙂
