Pressed reset this morning or last night rather when I forced myself to go to bed early instead of burning the midnight oil (again). Woke up earlier than normal and this day has been fantastic as a result.
Yesterday we played at the farm. I planted some tomatoes and green beans just in time for today’s rain. These little things like the salamander I unearthed center me and make me grateful for all I’ve been given.
Green smoothie recipe b/c it’s a main food group for us these days.

1 frozen banana cut into pieces
1 handful frozen strawberries
1 cup coconut milk or more if needed
I also add some vitamin C powder and a powdered nutritional supplement for a boost

*blessed weekend friends
Recently one of you left a beautifully encouraging note talking about “women of valor”. It disappeared before I had a chance to respond. Just wanted to say thank you to whoever sent that. It’s been on my mind since.
This week I’ve…
Looked at the world upside down / learned to change the oil + filter in my rig (transmission fluid too *long story) learned how to brew kombucha / faced more than one really big fear / went for a run in the cold that didn’t end in spitting up blood. a first (hydrated!)
*something about mornings lately.
Gracious gift from god that I’ve somehow learned to see the good in them. Mornings have always been the hardest part of my day. Something about waking up alone, not having anyone to say “you got this babe”. Not that anyone has ever said that to me… I just imagine life would be so different if you had support. Someone to run this race with. Fact is life is hard. Being on 24/7 for toddlers is HARD. Amaze but hard. Beautiful but hard.
So here’s to the beauty in these mornings I’ve grown to love. To a life that’s not perfect but a race that’s worth running. For myself for my boys and for my father.
*grateful for these mornings.
