I haven't blogged much lately. I just haven't felt like it. I don't know if it's just because we haven't been doing things picture worthy or if it's because my mind has been in a hundred different places lately..... It's no secret to those who know me that sometimes I happen to be a glass is half empty kinda gal. I wish I wasn't, but I am. I often envy those who see the world through rose colored glasses, and those who are so motivated in life. I'm not a perfect wife or mother. I sometimes don't like to cook and more often than not my house is a mess. I get grouchy and moody, and sometimes just down right unpleasant! I'm starting to think winter plays a role in my feeling this way. Life is stressful, it's rarely perfect. There are always decisions to make, people to please and bills to pay. Even when I get this way, I know Donny is always there to pull me out of it. I'm so thankful for him. He truly is the best.


I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm just in a funk.......I'll get back on the positive blogging train here soon enough. Sometimes I just need to wallow. I don't really know why I'm blogging about it. I usually just keep it to myself, but maybe someone else feels it too sometimes and needs to hear we're not all perfect all the time....sometimes we get down. I'm grateful for family. I'm grateful for the Gospel. Even when we feel like life is a half empty glass, the savior is there to hear our plea. We are never alone. We are children of a Heavenly Father who loves us. I'm thankful to be a part of an eternal family. Here's to things looking up!


  1. Winter will do that to anyone, especially Minnesota winters. On the positive side, your hair looks GORGEOUS in that picture. Darling of both of you!! Miss you!

  2. I think you and I are a lot alike. I know exactly how you feel. If you ever want to be in a funk together, come on over.

    1. Thanks michelle! It's nice to know I'm not alone! We should get together and chat and the boys can play.

  3. I love ya Em. I love your honesty. I feel like that too sometimes- I just never say it out loud. I know I am a naturally happy person, but I also think that growing up with my dad, I kind of put an expectation on myself to always be happy cause he was. My first few months here were hard. I didn't feel like they should have been.. but they were. I appreciate your honesty. I love you so much. I wish we lived nearer to each other. I miss you guys all the time. xoxo
