home. sweet. home.

So, it was a year ago today that we found our little house. Super bowl Sunday.....we weren't even looking to buy, we were out looking at different potential neighborhoods for one day when we thought we would buy. That day came fast and the moment we walked in the door we were in love. It was the ugliest house on the street but we were hooked from the moment we walked in the door. Here we are a year later living in our little dream starter house. We couldn't be happier. It is definitely a blessing that we are SO thankful for. Just remember that our door is always open :)
A little update on the family, Pops is doing a little better. He is back at rehab and has his own room because he has an infectious disease. We joked on the phone yesterday that maybe it isn't so bad since he got his own suite out of it and got to watch the super bowl with the TV to himself! He never complains and everyday when we talk we remind each other of all the blessings in our life and just to take each day as it comes. It's a great reminder and every day when we hang up I praise God for allowing us to talk one more time. You don't realize how precious it is until you lose it..in my case I lost it for a month when we couldn't talk. I will never take it for granted again

Another prayer request I have is grandma ruehlmann (Chris' gma) is in the hospital right now due to high blood pressure, she was supposed to go in for surgery on Tuesday due to a tumor in her colon but that has been pushed back until they get her heart under control. She is so precious so please lift her and grandpa elmer up in your prayers!


GF and GM Styll are doing well, still spunky and busy as ever....

here is a cute pic from the wedding...


The day it became ours!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
