I'm definitely having one of those moments when it looks like everyone else is so happy and has the best marriages and what an easy time raising their kids and so many friends.....and I feel so far from all those things.

  1. you should just move to Pittsburgh so we can be the bestest of friends. I certainly don't make any of those things look easy or enjoyable probably 85 percent of the time. this is a hard phase of life.

    2. That would be wonderful. I feel like we could just pick up where we left off except now with two kids each and husbands. Your babies are adorable and from the little I've seen Ithink you are doing everything right.

  2. Nikki- I just happen to glance at this post real quick as I signed on to my blog. I have SO been there. It can be discouraging. I just want you to know that even though things may not be perfect right now (actually, when are they ever?), I look up to you. I really do. You are an AMAZING mother. Seriously. You are beautiful- inside and out. You have this incredible ability to find joy and beauty in things. I always admired that about you. When I first met you and CS, I knew you guys were awesome and you were so fun to be around! I know life changes and challenges come when you start raising a family, and buying a home, and dealing with other things that come along...but please know how valued and important you are to those beautiful babes and wonderful husband. Also, I know you know this, but there is a plan for you and the Lord is so aware of the great work you're accomplishing...even if it's not glamorous and downright HARD. Keep going, mama! You rock!

    1. Thank you so much Megan for your kind words. I've been having an identiy crisis of sorts I think lately too. I'm not fun and spontaneous etc like I used to be....could be!!! You're right, life really has changed but the most important thing is that I am so blessed to have these angels in my life and they and CS are who matter. Ah I love you!!!!
