As Thanksgiving draws near...

We have so much to be thankful for. It's awesome that there is one day a year that focuses on all our blessings but we really need to make it our lifestyle. There are so many negative things going on in this world, things that seem to creep into our lives. They seem to sometimes take over all of the good. Chris and I spend time every night thanking the Lord for ALL of the good. They aren't always big things....it's mainly the simple things that we seem to take for granted. So as Thanksgiving approaches, what are you thankful for?

Here is my short list...

- Jesus, for loving me just as I am.

- My husband. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is...

- Our daughter, Kate. She is too precious for words and has filled my heart with more love than I ever knew was possible.

- My family. Their love and support means more than they know

- Our home.

- The power of prayer.

- Jesus choosing to heal Kate. His healing hand has been upon her and we no longer need to see a surgeon. This is a miracle!

- That I get to stay home with Kate.

- Our true friends.

- The Lord always provides even though we don't deserve it.

- For Thanksgiving. A time to be with family and friends and reflect on of the blessings in our life!

.....now its your turn....

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…
