Mother's Day weekend

We had such a great weekend. Saturday was a little crazy but we got to pick up all the furniture for our daughters room! It was so exciting! We are no where near being ready to set it up yet but hopefully next month we can move it in! Can't wait! Mothers day was wonderful. Chris and I celebrated...he was so sweet and made me heart shaped pancakes in bed with my favorite coconut syrup from Hawaii. He washed my car and helped me run some errands. We spent the afternoon and evening at my parents house with the whole family. It was the most relaxing day we've had in a while. Played in the pool for hours and kicked our feet up, not to mention a fabulous dinner! We had dessert with Chris' family and spent the later part of the evening with them. I am so thankful for the family that the Lord has blessed us with. My parents spoiled me (or should I say Kate) and bought her a darling outfit and a couple of books and my auntie came over and brought over a whole bag of gooshie pink goodies for our baby girl. I'll post pics on Kate's blog. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It means so much and your excitement and joy for us has made our cup overflow with gladness. Pray you all had a blessed day. Thank you Lord for my mom and Chris' mom. I pray that I will be half the mom that my mom is to me. Her love, joy, generosity and faith is what I hope to have for Kate.

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…
