missing them.

Last night Chris and I went to one of our high schoolers grad party which was awesome. Then we went to mom and dads so Chris could play wii with dad and smoke Cuban cigars and so mom and I could ride bikes for our nightly exercise. We had an awesome time and made s'mores....mom busted out some old dvds from our church when we first broke off from Calvary and had our first day as "Kindred" at the Elks Lodge. It was the coolest thing but so sad. Chuck wasn't sick yet and the church was booming and you could see Christ' love flow there. Ahh as time goes by you slightly forget how amazing it was and what an incredible teacher Chuck was. Then we watched the 1st anniversary of Kindred and also the first morning on the new property. Chuck was very sick then and ended up passing away 7 months later. We stayed until 12:15am just watching amazing memories. We also watched his memorial service...ahh my heart is broken. Time does help heal the pain but it's so hard to understand why the Lord chose to take such an incredible man home at 48. We miss him dearly. My sweet friend is so strong, I don't know how she does it....losing her dad at such a young age. The Obremskis are an amazing family. I am so thankful for them. I know Chuck and Pops would not want it any other way than to be in Heaven with Christ but I am missing them so much.

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…
