life lately + a trip to utah

Life lately has been, chaotic! Some days I feel super on top of it, and others I want to crawl in a hole and never come out. I've had some amazing work opportunities which have been so exciting and wonderful, but with that comes added stress and anxiety. I'm so beyond grateful, I just need to figure out a schedule that works well for me!  

 

I wish I could get on a schedule with posting on here. Reading old blog posts make me so happy! One of these day. I always seem to say that! This is so random, but, I REALLY wish I "vlogged". I feel embarrassed to say that out loud sometimes. Haha! I know a lot of people think it's dumb, but I love vlogs. And I wish I made them of Brady and I because watching those back one day would be so much fun. Video can capture so much more than text and I certainly don't have a knack for writing 🙈

Homemade granola bars. They were yummy! I really liked them the first few days and then I didn't. I need to try them again to know how I really feel!

Day after I got my hair done ☺  My hair has been making some serious progress lately. It's feeling much healthier and definitely growing! Slow and steady.

My sweet Zeeker!!! We just got back from a way too short trip to Utah. Of course that meant lots of family time. And visiting my sweet boy. I love him so much my heart could burst. Nothing beats the way he gives me hugs and kisses and says "Ne Ne".

This picture makes me laugh! Haha! Brady has to carry zoe up the escalator. She won't even get within 3 ft. She's terrified.

THIS. Amen to all of this. Really trying to be more present. I love social media and love the technology we have, but sometimes it's distracting and I'm really trying to keep my usage to a minimum and really be ALL THERE.

Amist all the bitter cold winter days, we had a sunny beautiful day. We spent hours at the park enjoying the sunshine and throwing Zoe's ball.

Pretty park views during a run with Brady and Zoe. I did really well running for a little bit and then stopped. Dying to get back on a schedule but gosh that's so much easier said than done. How many times have I said I want to be on a schedule? Haha I thrive with schedule.

All in all, it's been a good few months. I'm so grateful for all I have and for the time I get to spend with my family. And grateful to live in this amazing, overwhelming, energetic city.
