Hey guys, welcome to my blog! This is where you will see my most recent work as well as what's going on in my life, crazy path down Mommy-hood, and what's going through my mind and in my heart. My goal is to share something REAL... true life whether it be through my pictures or just sharing with you my day to day thoughts (which by the way goes a million miles a minute and is always coming up with crazy, new, fun ideas). So kick back, take you time, grab some snacks (Swedish fish is my favorite), stay a while and feel free to come in and leave a comment. Thanks for stopping by!


I get asked A LOT this question and I finally decided to write a little about it to see if I can help inspire a few friends, family members, co-workers, people... really anybody.

This morning and even yesterday I was asked... "Please share your secret... how the HECK do you have time in a day for work, attend kids and hubby, cook, photos, school, sleep, AND facebook?"

After I laughed a little... I wrote back within a few seconds and I said "Motivation". Here is what I mean by that...

Yes we all have dreams, desires, thoughts, and ideas of what we want to do, where we want to be, and how we want to do it BUT not all of us ACTUALLY strive to do it. Not because of pure laziness but sometimes I think we think about all the reasons or excuses we have of why we cant do it "yet". I think sometimes we are scared of failure... honestly I think about that too and sometimes I find myself starting to hold back a little but then I push myself a little harder because I know if I don't try I'll never "know". I think some of us don't know "where" to start... AND some of else have the desires but they are only that... DESIRES!

Please don't take this like I'm saying "I'm the only one that's motivated" because that's NOT what I'm saying.

I have always been the type of person that likes to be "busy" and likes to always have a new project to do. Once I'm almost done with something my mind is already planning the next thing I would like to do or that needs to get done.

I have this "thing" in me that makes me fight the complete exhaustion and makes me look pass the bags under my eyes because the way I feel when I get something done or how proud I feel about my work just surpasses everything else!

My children motivate me so much.... it's pretty incredible how much these 2 little people can help me get right back on track or help kick me back into gear! When I close my eyes and think of the life I want for us and for them I can see it perfectly clear. I want them to know that whatever they want to do or become in life THEY need to get it and reach for it... NOT sit back and wait for it to "just show up"or for someone else to do it for them... that's NOT how things work. I want them to look back at their Mama and be proud of me, the kind of person I am/have become and proud of EVERYTHING I did and will always keep doing for them. I want them to know that Mama worked HARD but it was so worth it! How can I truly motivate my children and tell them "they can be all they can be" or to "believe in themselves, anything is possible"... if their own Mama never tried?????

They say live your life and make the best of it so that later on in life your not looking back at it and wondering the "what ifs"... and THAT'S exactly what I'm doing. I wanna set things up NOW so that later on... I can sit back and enjoy the sweet life... with my family and watch all the new milestones come and go (who am I kidding... I probably will be doing something then too but you know what I mean). :)

I not only do it for my kids but I do it for MYSELF! I know I don't want to be an old lady (which isn't really that far ;) ) and look back at my life and say "Other then my kids, family, and friends... I don't have much to say about it".... I NOT that person. I WONT be that person. I don't want to BE that person.

Now... life wasn't given to me on a silver platter and life has been ROUGH BUT I refuse to take that and think "while that's why I'm the way I am"... SCREW that! YOU determine what you will be, who you will become, and how far you will go! These excuse just don't fly with me... we ALL have things happen and paths that we don't expect in life and YES the road can be bumpy BUT if you fight with all your might... you WILL get there... and just watch how GOOD it will feel.

I don't have any magical powers, secrets, or mighty strength... I'm just a regular person with the regular 24 hour day (who wishes I could add more sometimes) that simply is a DREAMER.... who is DETERMINED to make it into a reality!

The only piece of advice I can give you is.... find that thing, person, idea, thought, vision, dream... that motivates you, that will PUSH you to strive for your goals, think about the end result and ACTUALLY do it... STOP making excuses or waiting for the opportunity to knock on you door... and when your completely exhausted and don't think you can go anymore and your about to give up... keep thinking about that end result and let it push you to finish what you started.
