Happy Friday, friends! This week was so lovely. I drove the kids down to Waco Monday; it only takes two hours to get there, but somehow that “only” seems to disintegrate when it comes time to turn around and come home. It’s not “only” at all. But once they both fell asleep in the backseat, I was able to listen to a few favorite podcasts and left that drive so encouraged. Starting the week off with that little day trip framed my schedule and mindset for the days to come and it’s just been a beautiful thing.
I’m over a year into my natural deodorant journey and thought this was the best place to share the questions I’ve received and things I’ve learned throughout the process. Let me just emphasize that: it’s a process. The beginning is just the pits (I really wanted to work that in early) but I’m finally in a great place where my body is used to it, my mind is on board and I haven’t touched my Clinical Strength stuff in a year.
Does anyone else have a “junk email?” The email you had before you got your shiny, professional gmail address that you use for every online purchase and email opt in? I do. I rarely ever sign in there, but the other day I did. And while digging for a Gap Kids receipt, I saw my pregnancy update. “You are 26 weeks pregnant!” Nope. I’m not.
My sweet angel girl turns 2 today and I could just burst with love for her. She is, in a word, bright. Full of light! Full of life. So full of words and excitement and ideas and joy. We still call her our sour patch kid (“first they’re sour! then they’re sweet!) but the name isn’t really fitting anymore. She is our sweetheart.
If 10 sounds like a lot to you, you should see my Podcast show list. It’s a liiiitle bit alarming, but I am a podcast junkie through and through. Whether it be for Biblical learning, motherhood information and inspiration, business advice or entertainment purposes alone I never miss an opportunity to learn and enjoy. Here are my top 10 (just know this was really hard for me to narrow down, friends.)
