But in reality there has been a long stretch of days filled with nothing in particular and non-stop activity, all at the same time. At the end of most days I am simply too tired to be creative and I can't crank out a blog post worth reading. but I feel like I'm missing something. By not recording our day to day comings and goings, I'm not stopping to treasure them. Those precious moments of mommy-hood are just passing me by and if I don't write them down I might lose them forever.
For instance, tonight we made cupcakes. Just because it was Wednesday and JoJo was in a terrible mood and needed a pick me up! It wasn't anything special....but it was really special!
So I'm going to try and do some catching up and slowing down. I'm going to try to stop and smell the cupcakes and then write about their sweet scent. I'm going to try and chronicle the little things for my children so we can look back on them together and appreciate this big beautiful family we have and the big beautiful life we're living.
Below you will find a few of our sweet Autumn moments.
