Sweet Potatoes

Pin It
This is a long process, I started these slips in April. Yes. April. The last picture below is current time, I just took it. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. Two are about ready to pull & plant, the rest are just (crazy right?) starting. Holy guacamole. Anyways, I've managed to stay committed to these little guys for almost 4 months now. In fact, Ive named them... no I'm joking, that would make me crazy. I am, however, excited to get them in the ground!

I'm slowly detaching myself from breastfeeding. It's a hard thing to do. Were at the 50/50 mark. I think by 8 months my cub will be completely off of breast milk.

It is bittersweet. I am exciting to care about myself again, to be interested in what I wear, in reading and writing and learning, in art and music and culture. In the things that I love.

 I'm thinking more. Not just desperate thoughts, but really productive thoughts. I'm wanting to write more. I love to write, I crave it in fact, like a drug.

So a journey begins. Into a new phase of life. Out of the cocoon of child bearing and infant coddling and into the world where I can be both Mom and Woman. 

I want to sit at a table and sip cappuccino, feel the crisp newspaper on my hands, the slight tackiness of the fresh ink on my fingers, feel the clicking clacking of the keys as I type, feel the cool breeze, the smell of the world around me. 

I'm ready to embrace my life and move forward. After seven months of feeling like a fish out of water, dealing with the ups and downs of depression, having forgotten who I am, I'm rediscovering myself, my passions, my motivation. I can feel God again. His presence, His energy.

It's time.

Moving

Pin It Moving with two babies is complete madness. We are about 80% done.... I will post pictures when everything is complete. Lots of projects and organizing under way. Here are some pictures of the moving process (for your viewing pleasure).

Garden Update

June

Pin It Well, my last post was over a month ago. This happens sometimes. Life gets in the way and when I'm in the weeds I have a way of "hunkering down" as a dear friend puts it. 

We have been juggling quite a bit over here, some that is blogworthy, some that isn't ready for the blogosphere quite yet and some that just doesn't need to be talked about. 

We have officially moved! It was long and hard and were not quite settled yet, but we did it! We did it with lots and lots of help from friends and family. We are so happy in our new house. There is plenty of space for us and lots of room for the kids to play and for us to invite friends and family over! It's such a good feeling to be able to invite people over again and host gatherings. 

Sofia is officially in her big girl bed 100% of the time with no problems and you should hear her speak! She is putting sentences together! Very crude sentences, but sentences!!! The other day she said "Uncle Nate took you. Took you see choo-choo train." Isn't that awesome?? My jaw just about dropped. 

Knox is growing like a weed. He hit 6 months in June, but is already in 12 month clothes! He sits up and feeds himself (eats like the man-cub that he is). 

The garden is exploding with growth & we are getting to enjoy some early crops. By next month I think we'll be drowning in veggies! 

I hope to blog more often, for a week or so I didn't even have my computer set up, but progress is being made and I am once again a legit member of the 21st century. 

Xo,
N.
