Magic and Love; not Perfection

I don’t live in a gorgeous farm house.

I don’t have it all together.

I’m often struggling to comprehend that I am the mother and not the kid anymore.

My house is more a mess than in order…

To be honest, so is my brain.

But, my heart. My heart is 100% focused on bringing the magic into my children’s hearts this season and every season.

This season will be filled with baking, crafting, snowball fights, elf visits, hugs, kisses, and so much love.

I may not be a size 2 in jeans, but I like my yoga pants better anyway.

I may not be the model of fitness, but I’ll still get down on my children’s level and play hard no matter how much of a sweat I break.

I may not live in that farmhouse with my perfect body, perfect husband and my perfect kids… but I live in a single family home with a purposeful body, a perfectly imperfect husband who loves me and our wildly imperfect children.

My mind is on a never ending treadmill of thoughts, but I will step off of that treadmill to focus on what is most important, especially THIS season… and THIS year.

I’ll focus on magic, love, and togetherness.

Remember, you don’t have to live in the perfect house with the perfect people. You just need to live in a welcoming home (albeit messy most of the time) with the people you love.

That’s what this season is about… magic and love; not perfection.

Hey "Youse Guys!" I'm a mom of two handsome, smart, and lazy boys. I'm originally from South Philly, PA; but currently reside in Wilmington, DE. I enjoy drinking coffee, scrolling Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and living my best life in my yoga pants. Although I have a Master's Degree in education, I chose to stay home while my kids are little. Crafting is also my jam... thus, Pinterest being one of my main scrolling sites. Writing has always been a solid outlet for me. Need to yell at a boyfriend who broke your heart? Yell at him through the written WORD. Need to mourn a loved one? Get your feelings on a laptop and type away some of the grief. Need to laugh or cry about the ups and downs of motherhood? WRITE IT DOWN!
