I have to say when I first started this Blog is was to help others. Yes, I had the goal in mind to help others. Over the last year I found out rather quickly this blog was not just about helping people anymore. Sure I love to share my deals, coupons, gardening, cooking and family life. But I also like to throw my energies into companies, products and charities. The past few months I have been running around for the blog on some pretty special things to come. I think it’s important to stop and relax. This may get a little emotional but hey I need a moment. This photo represents where I am right now in my life. I am healthy, fit, tone and feeling pretty darn good about myself!
We headed out to the beach and what a nice day. I have to say this Summer has put up some challenges. It has been either super humid and we can’t be outside or raining. On nice sunny days I like to get out and be free form home until the dreaded snow comes back..eeek!
Anyone else love the beach??
Sand between their toes???
Even the water looks happy when it is sunny out.
Mac has grown so much this year. Nothing makes me more proud then days like this. When I sit and watch him play around and think PHEW, I did good. Thank goodness! First child, clueless I have to say I was worried from the beginning but as he gets older my worries are not as bad as they once were. I have overcome a lot from my childhood teachings and am glad how I turned out as a mom.
He was in the water this year!!
A few years back he wouldn’t even touch the water or go near it.
And sand HA forget it he would cry if his hand got anything on them. I am so glad he out grew that! So if you are a new mom reading this remember it’s OK, they grow out of it!Well, mine did anyways!
If you work a lot of hours, are running around, frantically trying to go from here, there and everywhere take some advice from this Mom RELAX. They are only small for so long. The work and things that seem so important aren’t, when it comes down to it. We all need to make a living sure but really when you are around your kids, MAKE time with them. Toss your phone, laptop, kindle, TV and any other electrical device that you have to physically “look” at away and enjoy your kids!
Nothing beats those precious moments when they think no one is watching them.
