A Grateful Adventure

Okay so I have been absolutely terrible at posting my blog entries... whoops! But here is this lovely little blurp I wrote back in June... enjoy.
Recently Jessica, the incredible creator and maker of 'dreamcatcherbaby dresses...found here..  (yes swoon all you want, they are darling right!), she posted a cute and simple little picture on Instagram with the hashtag #gratefuladventure... i could think of no better way to describe the incredible journey of motherhood! every day an adventure!! yes there are those days where you are at wits end and your littles seem to want nothing more than to see how close they can drive you to insanity... BUT... it is in these moments where although it may be hardest, we need to remember to be grateful! grateful not only for the perfect times- but all those times in between that far too often go unnoticed!  so... today I am setting a goal! not a goal of perfection... not a goal to attempt to make every day and every activity pintrest worthy.. I am setting a goal to be real! a goal to let my kiddos be real... and in those real moments we will find absolute happiness and joy! I think it is in those moments that we find perfection!! whether it is watching little Keller run through the sprinkles or even watching him try and mimic every single word and action if his daddy as they watch hockey together- it is these little moments that I want to remember forever!! I want to remember the messy faces, the little tickle wars, and even at times a messy house if that means for even a second we where living together a moment of pure happiness! a moment of perfection! this is my grateful adventure! 

and now for a little picture overload....
