…saying “no” to things that fulfill my time.
We just recently got back from San Diego where my husband and I spoke about work-life balance at the Digital Co-Lab conference. While I was preparing the speech I couldn’t help but think that I wasn’t qualified to be an expert at work-life balance.
In fact, balancing work and life was something I failed at over and over and over again. Working too much. Living too little.
And my hubby was even worse. He used to be so consumed with working that, sometimes, we didn’t see him or have is undivided attention for days at a time.
“LOOK MOMMY!!! A wainbow wif wots of cowuurs.”
The sound of a 3 year olds sweet voice will never get old.
Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago that I was complaining that it wasn’t hot enough?
And now… it’s went from too cold to too hot. Sometimes I wonder if I can ever be pleased. Ha! Don’t consult my husband on that question.
I recently did a photo shoot in the streets of my hometown with my friend Lauren and her adorable boutique called Eccentrics that I posted about HERE. This is the second set of pictures (with the other 2 outfit choices I went with).
Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.
This week is our church’s summer conference and we are hosting some amazing young women! The boys are in awe of the fact that this house just went from an all boys house to a girls rule house. Ha.
I might be kinda digging it too. Just a little.
When I told Parker that we would be hosting EIGHT girls for the next few days…you know what he said?
“Why not TEN?”
And so it begins.
How is he already girl crazy at age 6? I think I probably need prayer about this.

When I say that I had no idea what joy the blogging world could bring to my life…I truly mean that.
When I first started blogging in 2008 I did not picture myself becoming friends with ANYONE I met online. In fact, I thought it was slightly absurd and a little bit bonkers.
But after attending a few conferences where I got to meet the bloggers I had been following FACE TO FACE and realize that they weren’t just bodies behind a screen, but REAL people. REAL mothers. REAL women.
My life changed. And for the better.
This year, I’m going to be speaking on a panel with four other amazing women at the Influence Conference. I’m humbled and definitely not worthy of being in this group. Sometimes I think, man…I’m really fooling people if they think I am good enough for this. Haha. (more…)
