Happy Mother’s Day

If you’re a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you’re about to be a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you aren’t yet a mom but want to be, Happy Mother’s Day.

If your mom isn’t here but you wish she were, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you’re not sure whether being a mom is for you, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you never had a biological mom in your life but someone who acted like a mom, Happy Mother’s Day.

If you feel a LOT of complicated emotions on this day and don’t know what to do, Happy Mother’s Day.

It’s a happy day, a rough day, a sad day, an exciting day, a fun day, a painful day, and a million other emotions.  So no matter where you are on the “mom” spectrum or how you celebrate, I hope you found peace and happiness in your time yesterday.

And to my mom, I am who I am because of your love, guidance, laughter, rules, and example.  I can’t imagine a better mom for me and I’m so glad I get to call you mine.

Happy Mother’s Day.

4th of July Festivities

It’s weird when the 4th of July lands on a Tuesday.  Your whole week is all wonky.  You lose track of time.  You wonder what day it is when you wake up.  Do I have to work today?  Who knows?

Other than being completely out of it, Adam and I had a great time these past four days.  I always enjoy when he gets time off work and we get to be together 24/7.  Not sure if he feels the same way, but he’s stuck with me so he’ll get over it! 4th of July Festivities | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Camping at Rock Cut State Park

“I also think it’s pointless for a human to paint scenes of nature when they can go outside and stand in it.” – Ron Swanson

Pictures of nature are nice, but I kind of agree with Ron.  Go outside.  Seriously.  It will do you a world of good.  Adam and I spend the weekend at Rock Cut State Park in Rockford, IL and it was just delightful! Camping at Rock Cut State Park | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading
