|Six|



Mr. Williams,

It’s hard for me to remember a time when we weren’t a ‘we’. When things were just ‘me’ and ‘mine’ and not ‘us’ and ‘ours’. And you know what? I’m ok with that. All the memories, laughs, difficulties, celebrations, and love we’ve created over the years are much better because of US. There is no one else I would want by my side navigating through this journey of life than you.

Your love saved me in so many ways, ways I don’t think you’re even aware of, but that I am so grateful for. Thank you for showing me what a relationship can be when both people work together, give together, pray together, love together. No, we’re not perfect, but it’s in those imperfect moments that I can appreciate all we’ve built and been through.

I am so blessed by you and to have you.

So here’s to a lifetime of more laughs, jokes, and adventures with the only person I want beside me.

Happy 6th Anniversary!

I love you.

Mrs. Williams

xoxo

I'm back!

I haven’t blogged in almost 2 years. There have definitely been times I missed it, but mostly I felt relief at not having the pressure to come up with new, exciting content. I didn’t feel like my input on the season’s go-to color, or the latest shoe trend was really important. 

I started feeling anxiety with having to keep up with the blogging world Jones’s. Which, is not why I started blogging…it just became too much, too fast for me to handle. I was wearing myself thin. Lately, I’ve been feeling the itch though, needing an outlet to get thoughts out of my head. I’ve never been much of a journal keeper, I never know what to write, so my entries are always so blah. BUT a blog, an online journal for the world to read my thoughts?! SURE! :)

Don’t worry, my thoughts are NOT all emo, political thoughts. I think about lots of things. So in the coming weeks, or months or however long it takes I’m going to switch up the layout/design on here to match the direction I want to go in. I’ll keep the name – too lazy to think of another, and I’ll be posting. Not every day, but when I feel like I have something to say.

I’m not keeping up with the blogging Jones’s, this is just for me. So I hope you’ll pop by every once in a while, I’ll try to keep it fun and entertaining but I can’t promise there won’t be a serious post every now and again.

Love and light to you all

thirty.



Tomorrow I say goodbye to my 20’s.

It’s both bittersweet and exciting. I think entering my 30’s makes me feel as though I am officially a grown up, never mind the fact that I am married with 2 kids. That doesn’t make you a grown up, 30 does :).

 30's. That's like real adulthood. Gross.

If I had to pick one word to describe my 20’s it would be growth. I have just learned so much about myself the past 10 years and have really grown into myself. I feel comfortable with having an opinion and stating it, about realizing that I don’t need a million friends, just a few good ones, and about my worth and value as a woman, as a partner, and a person.  I really matured the past 10 years.

My 20’s saw me through so much; I suffered the worst heartbreak of my life and found the greatest love of my life. I made friends, I lost friends, I had wild nights with my girls and quiet nights at home. I drank way too much Tequila and laughed till my sides ached, I went on road trips, and I travelled. Sometimes life knocked me on my ass, but I got back up and kept pushing. I stopped thinking about how I was “supposed” to do things, and started doing them in the ways that made sense for me.

I experienced the pain of a miscarriage and the joy of pregnancy. I created two absolutely beautiful and perfect human beings. My life is forever changed because of the gift of my son and daughter. If nothing else I know I did 2 things right. Well…3 things, because I picked a pretty awesome husband to be a dad ;).

I have no qualms about leaving my 20's behind. I enjoyed them - I did some things right, I screwed up plenty of others, and I had a lot of fun in the process. I look forward to my 30’s  because 30 is a privilege. Really, it is. {Admit it, it's a miracle you're still here after all the things you thought were a good idea in your 20's...}

Happy New Year




Tomorrow we start a brand new year. A blank canvas.
I hope that 2015 is a wonderful year for all of you, full of enriching and great experiences, lessons, and new memories made. Make it YOUR year! Try new foods, go to new places, see old friends, and make new friends. Give back to your community, spread love, take a class, do random acts of kindness, be a friend, tell people you love them. Give a hug, find yourself, lose yourself, and fall in love, kiss, flirt, and hold hands. Tell secrets, tell jokes, find your passion, be compassionate, read a book. Dance in the rain, twirl, be a kid again! Find your dream job, chase your dreams, LIVE.
Make it count.
I love you all, and whatever you’ll be doing this night, please be safe.
