"Digging things that are ugly. The Hearts And Flowers do that, you see- that's a groove. And they say that in order to dig something pretty it takes no special talent. What it really takes a talent to do is to dig something ugly." -Michael Nesmith💕 . . #mikenesmith #themonkees #60s #heartsandflowers

“It’s a weird feeling to be afraid of a blanket. But that’s what new parenthood does to you. You leave the hospital with a brand new, freshly breathing human and weird instructions like, “Whatever you do, don’t leave them alone with a blanket!“ Maybe the best way for me to describe being a parent the second time around is that you don’t shake the rattle as hard. You don’t rock the baby so unnaturally. You wait, you watch, sometimes you just take a shower even though they’re crying. You let the baby be a baby and you shake the rattle like a person trying to show something interesting to another person instead of like an overzealous beginner looking for validation. Sometimes I use the Google search box to try to describe what I’m worrying about. “Low milk supply and PMS?” “Anxiety about traveling with kids…” “Anxiety about traveling without kids…” “Percentage of parents who forget pajama day…” Sometimes I find what I’m looking for. Other times, I’m left knowing that it’s time to go on a journey for answers. The kind you actually should brush your teeth to search for. The face to face kind. The: This is me needing you conversations. Humility and compassion are two of the best human qualities, I think. I’ve never had so much interaction with them than I have since becoming a mom. And maybe that is one of the greatest gifts motherhood has given me so far.” I finally found the words for this story. The rest is on my blog. As always, #thanksforreading
#honestlyfrugal While I wish I could be a vogue minimalist, I'm gonna be honest this morning – I have hoarder tendencies! Not like a real hoarder who hangs on to soup cans and egg cartons, but when I was a kid my mom did call me Templeton – that rat who collects junk in Charlotte's Web. I think the reason I struggle to purge like a true minimalist is a cocktail of memories and emotions plus the frugal habits you acquire as a homeschooled child of self-employed parents during a recession. I was discussing this with a sweet friend who also feels victorious when finding killer deals or thrift store treasures and saves things for the rainy days, too. And it left me questioning where the balance is between a wasteful culture that treats 80% of purchases as disposable (yes, I just picked a percentage out of thin air) and holding perhaps too tightly to stuff. Where I've landed for now is that the crux of the struggle is faith… Faith to let go, trusting that God will provide again in the future. So I would love to hear your input on this topic… How do you justify holding on to some things? Or what helps you let go? Can't wait to learn from you in this area! #balancedlifehappylife * * * * * * #theartofmotherhood #thesweetlifeunscripted #purejoy❤️ #our_everyday_moments #thesearethegoodolddays #honestparenting #creativemotherhood #heartmade #seealexwrite #motherhoodmoment #sdmomsblog #momlifeisthebest #ohmamamoment #mamabird #myhonestmotherhood #thehappynow #frugalliving #frugallife #frugalfashion #minimalistlifestyle #wannabeminimalist #frugalshopper #minimalistfashion #minimalists #minimalisthome
