hard to believe

A year ago today the Lord took my Pops to be with Him in Heaven for eternity. I can't believe that it's already been a year. It's weird how life keeps going on and becomes the new normal. I can't believe its been a year since I have seen him and talked to him. I loved being able to pick up the phone and call my pops, if you were having a crappy day he was the one to call. Yes, even as he was laying there on his death bed he would pick up his cell phone and make you laugh. I miss that. I miss not being able to take care of him and massage his legs and feet with no toes and hearing him call me his "nurse angel". I could go on and on about the things I miss about my pops but the one thing that is hitting me hard is that he won't be there to see the birth of his first great grandchild. He loved being a grandpa and was the best and I know how he so couldn't wait to be a great grandpa. I pray that he will get a glimpse of it from Heaven. We will make sure our baby knows all about Pops, he was a special man and I feel so blessed that I got to call him grandpa for 22 years. Love you Pops and will miss you until the day we meet again in Heaven...

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…
