picture me {im}perfectly.what is to come

the stress level has hit a new high around here. 
mostly in anticipation of what's to come. 

we are about to embark on a 
(hopefully) fun and 
unchartered journey.

three schools for three kids. 
every moment accounted for. 

i even just emailed L's speech therapist 

to see if she had any 6:30am 
(yes, in the morning) 
slots open.
i'm just trying to cram it all in.
all that needs to be done.

i have a constant struggle.
i really don't want my life to become 
cancelling and 
going to therapy with L. 
on top of regular, 
real life as a wife and momma.

that cannot be my life. 
i am always trying to figure out
what the healthy balance is 
between giving my family what they need 
(without being a robot) 
and doing what I love.
i love so many things and 
photography is one of those things.
that i love.
so is this blog.

B thinks i will always struggle with doing too much. 
and he's probably right. 

the struggle for me is figuring out 
what needs to be done and
what i want to do.

the problem is, i love being this person 
to every person. 
i love to give thoughtful gifts 
and plan nice parties and celebrations. 
i get a little high out of planning ahead
and it's starting to take its toll on me. 

it's time for a good old fashion re-prioritizing of life.
isn't it nice that the fall naturally brings that? 
it is nice.

so all this to say, 
i will now be updating my blog more like 3-4 times a week, 
rather than 5x a week. 
i know.
this is major news.
not really,
but there are a few of you 
who will worry about me 
if i don't update this little blog every day.
so for those couple of people, 
this announcement is for you. 

head over to mallory's blog
and see how her life so relates 
to yours and mine.

picture me {im}perfectly
is a weekly project to reveal that we don't have it all together.

i will post a 
picture me {im}perfectly
blog post every wednesday 
where you will be able to link up to your blog
revealing that:

you are not picture perfect,
your kids are not picture perfect,
your house is not picture perfect,
your crafts are not always picture perfect,

inspire and 
other women 
that none of us have it all together.  

add my button to your blog post
and link up to your direct posting
and feel encouraged.
