The Good Life

It may not be the glamorous life...

or a wealthy life...

or the life that comes with the finest dishes...


But it's the good life.

It may not be the easy life...

the stress free life...

or the gourmet meals life...


But its the good life.

It may not be the quiet life...

the relaxing life...

or the life with the most personal space...


But its the good life.

It may not be the worry free life...

the free-to-do-what-you-want life...

or the life that remembers to fill frames in the nursery (just add a pic, its been 7 months!!)...


But its the good life.

It may not be the caught-up-on-the-laundry life...

the house looks perfect life...

or the life that thinks pants are more important than the decorated Christmas tree...


But its the good life.

It may not be the fancy furniture life...

the romantic getaways life...

or the easy bedtime life.

But its the good life.

I thought of Kinley when I looked down the stairs tonight after a draining, mom-is-so-worn-out kind of evening - I actually laughed about the underwear picture and her innocent sweetness when I saw the light of the tree...


Thankful for the reminders of God's goodness and incredible blessings :).

Sometimes being a mama isn't the least stressful life, but it's definitely the good life.

My little Kate was reading over my shoulder, looking at the pictures and when I got to the pic of your girls' room she exclaimed, "Oh! That's a NICE room!" ;-)

So then my boys had to come see what we were shouting about and by then we were on the pic of Kinely in her undies, and don't you know undies are the most FUNNY THING EVER!?!?

So you just brought my kiddos and I a much needed laugh. Thank you.

Absolutely beautiful! I am with you on forgetting about "perfect," and just going for "the good life." Thank you for inspiring me tonight.
