You see, I had been so caught up in planning for our honeymoon and preparing for my new job and taking care of the apartment that I forgot to ENJOY it all. It was all about "perfect" this and "organized" that, but never about "My life is so blessed and I love taking in every moment!".
So I've decided to change things around here (something I do often, I know).
From now on, my blog isn't going to be about being a perfect working housewife with a put-together apartment and 3-course meal on the table every night. It's not going to be about making plans that I never keep or staring at the pile of decor we still have yet to hang on the walls. It's not going to be about having a ridiculously organized life that always goes right.
Instead, this blog is going to be about me. And it's going to be about Josh. And it's going to be about trying recipes that we end up hating, hanging pictures that fall off the wall a week later, being happily exhausted by 2 sweet screaming babies, and everything that comes along with it. From now on, I will no longer try to live the Stepford Wife Life, but my own. I refuse to put myself down because our apartment is still half un-done after 3 months here and I refuse to be disappointed in myself because I haven't cooked a real dinner in a week.
I am imperfect. Some days I run around like a chicken with my head cut off because the laundry's not done and dinner's not ready until 8pm. And that's just life.
I'll admit that I'm jealous of people who seem to have it all together, like Sherry and Jen, and it'd be awesome if I had the time to create a life like that, but I don't. So I'll take what I've got and work with it. I'll enjoy my life and do what I can to enhance the awesomeness that already is. I'll take each day one step at a time and I won't let the chaos get the best of me.
