blue.

Ever have those days where you're just kind of sad and down in the dumps? To be honest with you, I don't have them often if at all but I am today. I took Riley into the vet this morning to have his claws taken out and to have him neutered. It was terrible, I am so protective over him and I hate knowing that I won't get him back until Wednesday and that he is in pain, drives me crazy! What am I going to do when I'm a mom of a baby? I'm crazy over that little guy.
I've been thinking about my Pops a lot lately. I get so bummed out when I stop and think of him. I normally will distract myself when my mind goes to him because I can't handle it yet. I've dealt with his death really well so far. I thought I would be a wreck day in and day out but the Lord has kept me strong, especially for grandma. I heard the song "Tears in Heaven" this morning and for some reason it got to me. I used to love the song when I was younger, I would think of my brother and sister who are in Heaven and would wonder all the time if they will know who I am and if I will know who they are when I get to Heaven. It's the first time I've heard it since my Pops passed away and I broke down wondering if he will remember me when I get there. I'm sure he will but I don't know. I know one thing for sure and that is there are no tears in Heaven and that I will get to see my loved ones again up there.
Anyway, here's the song....

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! They are a company out of Sweden and they make the most awesome Baby bottles.

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…
