As you know, I love guest posts, and today`s post is really fun. I love clothes… and what a cute momma and baby. ♥
Thanks, so MUCH Shelley, for sharing with us…
Here she is:
Hello readers! I was blessed with the honor of being able to guest post on the lovely Jenny’s blog, and at the moment am feeling a little bit like a Jr. High student at prom. Anyway, here I am. 🙂
Well, how do you think the dated, tired old prom feels– hosting fresh, vibrant, new blood like those pretty junior highers? ~jenny (hehe)
I couldn’t decide what to blog about, and then settled on filling you in on some of the things I’m loving right now. So here goes. (Really wanted to do an exclamation point right there, but I’ve already used one and one smiley face, so I’m probably maxing out Jenny’s patience already. I’ll have to settle down! ) Shoot, there I go again.
I used to worry that after getting married and having a baby, I would slowly but surely slip into “Frumpville”. Oh it’s a real place, be very afraid. It has claimed many a hapless, unsuspecting passerby who thought they would just pop in for a visit and ended up buying a condo. And hey, I understand. It’s HARD to dress up when you’re a mom. Sometimes you feel like the last thing in the world you have time for is yourself. It’s hard enough to get out of bed and shower, I know. But it really doesn’t take that much time, and it’s worth it.
Thought I’d try my hand at a little colorblocking, that I’m sure you’ve all heard of by now. People are usually much more courageous with it than I, pairing colors like magenta and orange. Maybe I’ll stray a little further out of my comfort zone next time. And let’s be honest, if I would’ve waited to take these pictures until I was actually on my way to something, they would have never happened, because it seems I’m always running late. So the only “event” I was headed for, all dressed up like this, was the grocery store. At first I felt overdressed, but then I got two compliments from strangers and started thinking, “Maybe this is how we can change the wear-your-pajamas-to-the-
Next I’d love to introduce you to the mini-sized love of my life, Jocelyn Kate. This little muncher gave me a VIP pass into the most magical wonderland–Motherhood. I am loving every minute of it.
If you’re a mom, you know what I mean when I say sometimes you love them so much you physically hurt. It’s so strange, the complete exhaustion, fatigue and stress you can feel being a mom, and yet somehow, kissing that chubby little cheek flushed pink while they sleep you find yourself thinking, “I am the luckiest woman in the world.”
Blessings to you all, I will leave you with something I’m clinging to these days….. “I raise my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of Heaven and earth.” -Ps. 121: 1-2
THANK YOU AGAIN. :):)
And these are just for you: (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
