Gosh today ( and every day ) I'm so grateful for my sweet baby.
He is my little sunshine.
And my sweet husband....He is incredible.
They mean everything to me.

I wanted to post a quick blurb today.
It's been on my mind a lot lately.

Life is funny.

It has a way of turning emotions upside down, inside out, and all of the above.

Sometimes life isn't perfect.
Who would we be if life WAS perfect?

Sometimes it's hard to understand why things happen the way they do.

Sometimes it's hard to see the bigger picture.

Sometimes you want something so badly and can't seem to reach it.

Sometimes life just hurts.

When I talk about more personal matters,
I have a hard time expressing what I want to say in the right words,
but I guess what I'm trying to say is that sometimes life just needs a little extra faith.

Don't let "life" get the best of you.
Be the best "YOU" you can be and everything else will somehow fall into place :)
I know it.

Also quick reminder 14 more hours to enter The Anthropology $120 gift card!
Thanks everyone!

  1. Life is definitely a roller coaster of emotions. Especially for someone like me who's extra sensitive. I think having kids makes you feel more.

  2. I totally agree, somedays I wish we could get a glimpse into the future, and see everything worksa out

  3. Definitely needed this today, thank you for the reminder!

  4. Oh mama, I totally get this. I get overwhelmed quick so sometimes I just have to step away for a moment and realize everything WILL work out. This was a sweet post! Thank you! P.S did you get my earlier email?

  5. I wish I could give you a big hug from far away! I read this quote a few weeks ago that I LOVE from David O McKay: “The trouble with you is you want to see the end from the beginning. You must learn to walk to the edge of the light, and then a few steps into the darkness; then the light will appear and show the way before you.” I'm with you on the trial of faith right now, and it's so hard sometimes to just keep the faith! Almost like you don't want to let yourself hope for something and be let down and disappointed over and over, but you want to be faithful that it will work out, but you don't want to waste your time having faith in a decision that may be a good one but isn't right (at least right now) for whatever reason. Oy! Lots of hugs to you sister friend.

  6. Hope everything is ok Karina! Thanks for the words of inspiration!

  7. I hope everything is okay. Lovely words and great reminders. Hugs from across the pond xx

  8. this is so sweet--and exactly what I needed to hear! love this. xoxo

  9. Sending you love and prayers my friend. And you can be proud for always being you and the best you you can be! x
