Dressed In Cool Blue

I’m feeling more like myself. I love working out, I really do. It makes me feel strong, in control of my health and let’s just say it – sexy. This cool blue dress is my new favorite in my closet. I’m the type of girl who has my favorites and that’s all I wear. I’m not one to go out and buy a lot of new things. Once I find what I love, I stick with it – that applies to all corners of my life.

Michael and I had fun taking these pics today here at our house. It was so freaking hot outside, but in Chicago we try not to complain about the hot weather, because we so often breath in the freezing. My sweetheart husband and I just celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary – lucky number 7! Marriage has been the most wonderful journey. We have come a long way from our wedding day, where we really did look like kids (you can see some pics of that day in Instagram – handle: girlnesting.) I knew Michael was the one, there’s was an instant connection – we enjoy each other. I knew I wanted to spend every day with this fun and talented man the first day we met. It was a relief that he felt the same about me lol. We made a family together, our own family. Now our lives are non stop. There’s never a dull moment when raising daughters. However, finding our way back to each other, despite the wild ride – That’s what keeps this family strong.

*Life advice I would share at this age of 39: Maturity is not needing anyones approval, follow your own heart.

This Is Me

Experiences in life leave footprints, that’s what I see in the reflection, evidence of time. I see versions of myself in my babies, running past me. The days are feeling shorter. I value how I spend my time more than ever before. When I was younger I didn’t think about choosing my time wisely. As we get older we become less tolerant. We realize we have one life, make each day count. I filter out what I don’t need. I enjoy what’s in front of me. I listen closely to my heart. This is me. A woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. This is me.
