I had a post planned for today, chalk full of gorgeous photos of the wee ones as we all relished in another fall family adventure, but if I'm completely honest, I'm a little bit frazzled. So, I thought I would share some of my personal overwhelmingness (soooo not a word) and also answer some questions some of you have asked.
We have a to do list here on the farm near a mile long, some with upcoming deadlines, some less pressing but necessary and desired. With some help, we hope to knock quite a few off the ole list this week, and though we have yet to even begin, I'm already stressed.
I have hopes and dreams of painting my kitchen this week with the help of my amazing DIY'er mother-in-law. The problem- I have no idea what color to paint it. Right now it's a country barn reddish color, but it's chipped and stained and desperately needs a makeover. If you have any color help, do send it my way!
I have the matter of children's clothing to attend. Does anyone else know this stress? It's a bi-annual headache of finding seasonal appropriate wear that fits,going thru packed away hand me downs, and finally packing up old clothes in big containers to hopefully fit another wild one at another time.
And. . . Halloween is Friday! I have not even started on costumes and we have yet to carve a pumpkin. Seriously the fall season has near come and gone, and we have yet to even welcome it.
Ok, to answer a few questions. First off, for those who have asked- yes, our life really is pretty great. There are certainly bad days. Times that I get bored and stressed and as I've just pointed out, overwhelmed. As a whole though, it's awesome. I love being a wife and mother.
Here on the blog, I like to post beautiful images and fill it with whimsical poetic writing. Mainly because that's what I enjoy but more because, it's simply my writing style. I love to be shown happy people, who are enjoying life. It's really just small snippets of the whole, so I generally choose to show the lovely, but I try to give an honest look of it all.
Next, Four kids is really not any harder then one or two. Honestly I think it gets easier. I would say that having my second was my most difficult transition, but after that, you're really just adding into the chaos. It only gets better and better, promise.
As for my hair, I have been using the beach waves tutorial from here, (well, not in this photo. This is week old hair, don't look to close:) it's amazing. Takes a little time, but well worth it.
