we're still here

It has been a crazy week, hence no blogging. Chris started his new job at the firm on Tuesday, good thing it was only a 4 day work week. New jobs are hard, frustrating but exciting too. That was his week. I am so excited for him, he is going to do so well there! They all already love him, considering there are only like 6 guys that work in the firm- the rest are chicks. I worked 3 out of my 4 jobs last week: administrator (at church), house cleaner (for my parents) and nanny (for Brighton and baby Brennan). I was busy but it was a great week.
Yesterday, we celebrated Chris' birthday (again) with his family and mine. We had a great BBQ at his parents house. I don't think he has ever celebrated as much as he has this year and he's not even 30 yet!
Today was awesome. We went to the angel game with my family and hung out at their house and swam then went to the lake by our house and had a nice walk. It is so nice having extra time to spend with my hubby. We both are missing the high school kids and serving there but stepping down was probably the best thing for us and our marriage. Things are great here in the Andrews household. We have much to be thankful for.

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..

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…
