We spend the first 18 or so years of our lives wishing time would fast forward… That we could move out and be on our own. To have a real job and pay bills… Buy our own groceries and stay out as late as we want… Don’t get me wrong I totally was like that and it was fun… For a time. And then something weird happens. You get to a point where the days seems to blend together and you close your eyes for a second and the days, weeks, or months have flown by like a whirl of wind. Days once seemed to last an eternity, but now are gone before you know it.
It’s so annoying as a kid to hear adults say “enjoy it now” when you complain about how you want to be more independent or when they would say “you’re going to miss this time”. Most kids roll their eyes because that seems like the last thing they will ever think once they achieve freedom! I know, I thought this way.
Life is such a strange thing. A beautifully magical strange thing.
Now that I am living on my own, have a car and a ‘real job’, pay bills, and buy groceries… Sometimes all I want to do is go back to being 15 years old and have my mom make me dinner while I lay on my bed doing….. NOTHING!
ha ha ha. What a thought.
But in all seriousness, I LOVE my life. I love my husband. I love being a business owner in a creative field. AND this year has been the best year yet! I became a mom a year ago and it has been incredible! I love my little lady with a fierce love that I didn’t quite know was inside of me.
BUT time really does just flash right past you! I know it’s cliche to say, but I feel like it was yesterday when we were bringing Adeline home from the birth center just a few short hours after we welcomed her into the world… AND NOW SHE IS ONE! What?! How did that happen??
I have cherished every moment of this past year with her and cannot wait for the next. She is so much fun and keeps me giggling all day long. I love being able to stay home with her. It is a true joy for me.
Here is a little highlight of the last 12 months with Adeline Grace.. Oh, how she has grown!
I am a blessed mama!!
