I've always been a person who thinks she can "do it all." This tends to get me in trouble as I either end up over extending and getting overwhelmed or people in my life feel forgotten or like I don't care because I'm trying too hard to be everywhere at once. THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE. I'm learning.The hard way of course, but never the less. I'm learning that "it all" isn't every useless single "opportunity", but recognizing the ones that are real and that will actually elevate my life. I don't have regrets, because I know it's all part of the learning experience and I can't change what has been done. But because life happens in cycles, when I encounter similar situations I will have the right tools to get through it, a "second chance," a virtual redo. That's all I can do to move forward.

Sometimes I feel like there is a lot of negativity about being a parent, like it's a mistake or it seems like such an inconvenience to some people. I feel alien though because I genuinely love being a mom, every day, every moment. I don't regret anything about it. I don't feel inconvenienced, I don't feel like life is so hard and heavy with a child. Quite honestly, she has inspired me so much, given me a new understanding for the world and a softer heart. I don't relate to certain parenting jokes and memes. Maybe I'm sensitive, does anyone else struggle with this??
I want to jump on the "year in review" and 'best of' band wagon, but every time I start to think about my feelings reflecting on this year, quite honestly, it's too emotional. I'll just leave it at; It's been a very bittersweet year and I hope all that we went through was worth it.
Today I was sitting at a very full diner eating brunch with my daughter and husband (which we all really like each other so end up sitting on the same side of the booth) when I thought how cool it would be to have designated "join us" booths. A) because if you are like us, we had a whole bench open at our booth that could have accommodated another couple or so which would help with people waiting to be seated. Also B) it would be a really cool way to just socialize and make friends! What do you think??
Sneak peak @tishandcompany ❤ I had so much fun challenging myself on a mini shoot with this cute little family! I've been super out of touch on my social media, as life had taken a crazy turn but I am going to be catching up over the next few days. I hope everyone's holidays are going well and y'all aren't plagued with too much stress 😂😂 xoxoxo
