I have to admit, I have had my fair share of challenges throughout my 27 years of life, but none of them can measure up to those that I have faced bearing, birthing and raising three little humans and tackling the title of “mom”…
A beautifully written letter by a blog I follow – the link is below! Too often we become complacent and this was a reminder to let my husband know, I see you love… Dear Husband, […]
The overwhelming joy, stress and heightened anxiety of bringing home twins this time around while my husband was away and trying to chase after a two-year old brought so many emotions to surface that well, yeah, things have definitely changed. Here are some of the ways my marriage has changed after 3 children and how I deal.
You see, sometimes my husband and I give each other these pep-talks. Sprinkle of brutal honesty here, love in the middle, sprinkle of advice and wrap it all up in a bow. Like any other gift, if you choose to use it, amazing. If not – sorry there’s no gift receipt….

But it definitely has a lot to do with the fact that it is not my job and I DO NOT wear the uniform. But before everyone gets the wrong idea about this post, let me explain…
At 26 and 29, my husband and I do not want to admit it, but our 20’s are slipping faster and faster into those “Dirty 30’s” (he’s closer than I am haha!) but it has not been an easy road.

It has not always been an easy road.
This is a very very important topic to me. I learned at a young age that no one would enjoy my company if I did not. In fact, I was bullied for a large portion of my childhood and teenage years (for reasons I am still a little unsure of today) so being the best company I could keep definitely was not only a sure way in my mind to avoid confrontation with people that hated me and I barely even knew, but a major transition into loving myself and finding out who Ashley is.
