The warm sun, sand between my toes, and the sound of the ocean roaring up the shore. This is what I live for. It's no secret, summer is my favorite season and I can't help but reflect on this past as we near the end of it.
I'll admit, summer is far from perfect (and pumpkin fans may argue fall takes that title). There are challenging, messy days to this season. Hello heat and sticky humidity!
Ironically, there is a parallel to this figurative season I'm in now. I've experienced some of the most challenging days in my life so far and to this day I struggle to find balance between myself, marriage and motherhood.
Yet despite the challenging moments, I've come to realize that this season of my life is my favorite. Motherhood is my favorite.
Just like the warm sun, the smile on my daughter's face quite literally lights up my life. The pure joy fills my heart and soul to a depth I never knew existed before.
As we near the end of summer this year, I'm reminded of just how quickly time passes by. That this season is fleeting. All I can do is be fully present and soak up every light filled moment. So, this is where you'll find me for the rest of the it.
