Hi Everyone!

Here is our biweekly Document our Days feature. I am loving all the images as always. Seeing your images in our hashtag and in our Facebook group makes my heart fit to burst. I have gotten to know so many of you so well at this point and I truly love getting a glimpse of your days. There are so many walks of life, so many view points. Thank you so much for embarking on this project with me.

So let’s share some of your awesome images!

New shoes! It’s been a very long journey including physical therapy, MRIs, x-rays, a bone scan, numerous doctors appointments and, finally, injections into my SI joints…. I’m finally able to give running a chance again. It’s been three years since I started having significant pain while running and it’s been so hard and sad. Many tears. I’m so glad I’m allowed to resume working out and attempt to run.

Sunday is ‘clean and laundry’ day, but with 3 small kids, in reality, it is ‘ hide from mom and play’ day

This is my reality, as a single mom I’m trying to be everything for both of my kiddos at all times, sometimes I wish I could clone myself. Some days are easier than others, some I lock myself in the bathroom and think this is exactly why it’s supposed to be easier with a partner. I try to be the best I can for them no matter what though even if I wish I had another set of hands at times.

Tomorrow is never gauranteed.

I am so nervous to post on here as I am just learning! Here it goes….

11/52 – The {REALITY} is that time is fleeting. My youngest son (on the far right) is no longer a baby. He can almost keep up with his older sister when running around on the soccer field. This makes me so sad, but I am going to try and hold on to moments like these. Taken on my iPhone (I wish I had my camera with me)!

In the last two days, I have found 4 of these little silver things in my head. I’m 33, and a natural blonde (no jokes please wink emoticon ). I’ve been dying my hair red for nearly 10 years, and each time the roots start to show they reveal darker and darker hair making it easier to spot these sneaky little buggers. So, here I sit tonight. Coming to grips with the reality that I’m getting older (and hopefully wiser) smile emoticon On a side note, I’m getting increasingly more excited for my salon color appointment on Friday

This was shot through my coffee table before I started to dust and straighten up the books that never stay straightened because I wanted to show our coffee table chaos. I didn’t think much of it until I took a closer look and saw that the catchlight in my daughter’s eye is shaped just like a heart which is perfect because books are her passion. I also caught the cloud of dust particles stirred up by my daughters attempt to help clean, which ultimately ended in her finding a good book to read. The reality is we are surrounded by books, never ending dust and toys in this home and I couldn’t be happier.

This is my husband. About three years ago he lost his job, A job that he loved and had since college (over ten years). That was in Nov. of 2010. I was pregnant with our third child, working in a new position at work, getting my masters degree at night, and my car was totaled that we had payed off and could fit three children in safetly. In the midst of our crazy and stressful times we eliminated so much financially that we found out we didn’t need. It was liberating and that surprised us. He struggled a lot and I worried about him all the time. My husband sat down in one of his “moments of sadness” and wrote a bucket list. On that list was to learn to play bagpipes. He did. We met the 42nd Royal Highlanders at the Feast of the Hunter’s Moon in Lafayette and he started taking lessons. Now as a family we travel 5-6 times a year dressed in period correct clothing and live in period correct tents for the weekend. It has become part of our reality because we know how stressful life can be. This became a way to connect again and remember to slow down.

Four months later (Feb 2011) he became president of the company that had let him go. I had our first girl in May and he surprised me with a car.

Because of his willingness to work hard and stay focused on something positive during his time off, we have a new friendships and families that have become part of our reality.

My birthday. What used to be a full family gathering with our grown children and their families has now turned into a quiet evening with the only one of our kids that lives in the same state…and who drove two hours to surprise me when I didn’t think he could make it either! My reality…not bad, just different. (and I love it just the same).

11 * 52 REALITY, truth be know my husband never stops working on our property. He is a perfectionist and does everything he can to create our perfect life.

11/52 {Reality} – This right here is my reality. My husband works out of state most of the time, so I’m left to raise 4 kids (almost 5) by myself. Although sometimes the stress of being alone without my husband is unbearable and sometimes I just want to yell, pull my hair out and cry, I am blessed. These kids are everything to me and having the opportunity to stay home with them and teach them and mold them means more to me than anything else!

11/52 Reality. My 7 year old daughter wears my clothes, my necklace and my hair tie. The dress doesn’t fit, almost but she doesn’t care. Every day she raids my closet to find something different. The reality is I like it. Actually I love that she asks me to save them for when she gets older. I remember wearing a lot of my dad’s clothes when I was growing up, his boxers and tee shirts. Somehow I think it makes us closer.

M4H Project 52

Reality: The world or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them.

Kids are wonderful, magical little creatures just like everyone makes them out to be. This is true. But also true is the fact that kids are weird. Really, really weird. Like, weirder than the weirdest person that you know if you don’t know a kid. If you already have kids, you already know this, plain and simple. Weirdness is the name of the game. That’s the reality of it. Magical, wonderful, amazing, interesting, weird little creatures. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

11/52 // Reality

The reality is that I choose to focus on things like finding the perfect, vintage show bag… Reading my favorite series (written for 8-10 year olds)… Eating thin mints and counting my daily steps because everything else is too much. Did you ever find yourself faced with a dilemma or dilemmas that seemed exhausting. Hashing over the same struggle can be too much. Maybe I’m weak but I need a brain break. And anyway, I solved that show bag problem, didn’t I?!
