New Idea

So I am not a big fan of New Year's Resolutions, but this year something really stuck out to me that I wanted to try. 

I have heard often  "you have such a happy family", "I love your pictures on Facebook, you look so happy and put together!"  

Yes, most of the days I feel very happy and blessed with the wonderful life the Lord has blessed me with, but guess what?  

I do not take pictures of Jovee throwing temper-tantrums, or when CJ won't sleep and just cries in my arms at 2 in the morning, or when Norris and I have a disagreement and I feel like throwing the remote control!!!! 

Those moments come and go, but I am not stopping to take a picture.  

I have taken a 2 week break from Facebook, not because I really wanted to, but because we were visiting family.  And it has been nice.  Even though I am sooooooo happy with my life, it is still hard to not compare with other people on facebook, when their life seems perfect!  

So Norris and I have decided that for our New Year's Resolution, we are going to take a picture at 6:30/7 pm every night.  No matter what is going on.  Whether we are eating dinner peacefully while watching Wheel of Fortune, or our house is a mess and dinner is far from being ready and the kiddos are getting cranky!!

Plus  I think it will be fun to have a photo blog of the year, good and bad!!!

Here is the first one!

Today was a great day!  CJ was clean from a bath, Daddy was doing the dishes and Jovee was taking a bath with Nana!!!


  1. that is awesome and so so so so true! it is hard to see the "Real" behind the pretty pictures. Good for you!

  2. did you see this :)

    1. I love that Jenilee!!! I am so glad to know that other women are feeling the same way! I just want people to know that even though the pictures look fun, that is not my whole life!!!
