F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

"True friendship isn't about being there when it's convenient;
 it's about being there when it's not."

I cherish each one of my friendships. They're all unique and precious in their own way. Some of them are more open than others, some of them are filled with laughter while the other half are more serious. They're all different and that's what I love. There are some who I have known since before I can remember and some who I just met. My favorite ones are where we call just to chat or how we can pick up right where we left off...almost like no time has passed at all.


Moral of this story: I am so grateful for the true friends who are in my life. The ones who truly care and act like real friends should. 


These past couple of years have been a real eye opening experience for me. Those who I thought would be there and part of my life, haven't been. And those who I would have never imagined would be in my life, are. I've learned that there are those who seem have no interest because we're at different places in life and there are those who would drop what they were doing in an instant. 

I have friends who have been in my life for years who haven't said a word to me about my pregnancy or anything to me at all recently actually. Does it hurt? Yeah. Does it surprise me? Well, yeah. I am the same person I have always been except a little less selfish now and a little more busy since I have a family but I am the same friend who has always longed to be there for my friends.


On the other hand, God has blessed me in abundance with "newer" friends who absolutely mean the world to me. Friendships that are rich in love, joy, encouragement and are just pure fun. I am beyond grateful for each one and thank the Lord for blessing me with friends who care about one another and building each other up. 

It's hard but good when you figure out who your true friends are and who are your friends when it's convenient for them.


Have you thought about who your true friends are recently?
Are you being the best friend that you can be? 
Sobering huh?

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. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
