Happy Fall.

I love fall. And I LOVE my family.

Daily, I treasure the blessing of not only being a mom and a wife, but also a sister and a daughter and an aunt and a friend.

There are other roles that I play in my life that sometimes cloud what is most important and has the most meaning. And then I get a reminder about what IS the most important.

At the end of the day, when I kiss my kids and my husband goodnight and reflect on another finished day, it does not matter how clean my house was. Or what the neighbors think about my Halloween display (which this year is completely NON existent and I could not be happier). Or what a great mom/crafter
/Martha/ creative genius my friends think I am.

I need a reminder of that every so often, as I catch myself getting caught up in things that on the surface seem SO important. But a year from now? I'll wonder why I was so stressed. And in a decade? I won't even remember a single detail....

I am imperfect. I am human.But, I am learning. Day by day. And constantly reminded about what is the MOST important.

Happy fall, my friends.


  1. You are so right and as busy moms sometimes I think we all lose sight of what is truly important. Nice post, and it looks like you had fun!

    Happy Fall!

  2. Couldn't have said it better myself! Thanks for reminding us all of what is really important!!
