Random Spring Thoughts


The changing of the seasons makes me feel like I am constantly moving full speed. We have so many more activities to attend, yard work to accomplish and work related commitments to finish before summer. Having three kids is just my reminder to enjoy every second and don’t feel defeated when things don’t go my way or my to-do list is still a mile long.

I have OCD, I want everything to be neat, organized and completely finished at any given time. Having three kids while I have OCD makes it laughable. Although, they drive me crazy with all the messes they make, it helps me be laid back and worry less about my house being spotless. Life isn’t picture perfect, no matter how amazing someone’s social media is, you best believe there’s some kind of craziness happening behind the scenes.

The day we took these pictures, was the only day last week that Derrek would be home to help me. We had been running around all day doing 156 things and were on the way home when we decided to take a little bit of time and chill out at this fountain that we love. I love going there when the weather is nice and it is so peaceful. We had Scarlet Reese with us and she really enjoyed the beautiful weather and the water.

I am thankful for little reminders like this one to take a step out of the chaos and just enjoy the moment. Enjoy life. Take a deep breath and let all the stress go! I challenge you to do the same and see how it can change your life!

ps, how cute are Scarlet Reese’s Mary Jane moccasins from Freshly Picked and the matching headband? I initially thought about putting them in her Easter basket and wearing them on Easter but they are so stinking cute, she’s worn them every day since they came in the mail! We have loved Freshly Picked for several years!  I was given these items in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Please check out my disclaimer page for more information.
