Wow, I miss this!

Life has been so busy here lately! The days are so full that I can't quite find the time to write when it's light outside...

But as soon as the kids are in bed, I pass out!

I'm in the car- in Tennessee!
We are heading to Missouri...
For TWO weeks!!

I am hoping for loads of great photos and the time to play catch up when I get home.

I have so much fun stuff to share! So many great projects going on involving our home and property! Some big announcements!

But for now, I just wan to share that my kids are fantastic travelers, an avocado + a bag of tortilla chips is a fantastic snack to eat on the road, and I have spent a lot of time today laughing at myself as I try to pump donor milk and keep from flashing truckers! <3

Being MIA

I do seem to go missing, don't I?

I have been having the most amazing time with my family! I have so many photos and stories- but I am too busy cuddling my 7 month old to upload them.

I'm even writing this update from my iPhone- I have barely touched my laptop in weeks!

Just a few observations...

Keelin is a wise little soul. Wise beyond her years.

Jackson has music in the air around him, I swear!

Finn has the softest hair and the gummiest grin.

Being Happy during stressful times

Wow. Being Happy.

Recently, I have had a few people refer to me as a happy person. I am happy, but I choose to be happy. I feel negativity and stress in such an overwhelming way that I have to sometimes make the choice to be joyful.

Yesterday, I was so stressed out (had so much to do that I ate a packed lunch while I drove and only stopped to feed and change the baby)... And I found myself becoming a bit of a wreck.

I decided that today was going to be my day to recoup. I'm going to do laundry, watch useless cartoons, update my budget, and just reorganize myself. I'm a bit behind the 8 ball at the moment and I really need to catch up and take a breather!

Do you sometimes have to do things that help you adjust your attitude, reclaim your positivity? :-)

"Gluten &apos;Free to be you and me&apos;"

I crack myself up sometimes ;-)

I just finished a gluten free elimination diet to try to pinpoint the source of his tummy issues. After weeks of being gluten free, I can say with much certainty that gluten is not Finns issue.

Today was my first day of a dairy elimination diet. All I wanted all day was my raw milk... And it teased me from the fridge!

Any good dairy free recipes, y'all? I think this will be tougher than going gluten free!
