{happiness is...}

I'm having one of those super thankful days!!

Where I just look at my beautiful family and think, wow.  I. AM. SO. BLESSED!!!

During my life, I've seen people attempt to find happiness in material possessions and I won't pretend that I haven't from time to time.  And I won't begin to pretend that I don't see people's picturesque homes or blog worthy outfits on social media venues and sigh... ha!  And don't even get me started on the ideas pinterest puts into my head ;) 

But then I quickly remember.... even if we were all crammed into a one room house - we would have each other & I get to stay home a lot with my girls!! And really, that time is worth more to me than any pretty clothes or home d├ęcor (which really, I feel like we also have... maybe just not the latest and greatest)! I clearly remember a time, when I wanted to stop working so bad and stay home with Harper... telling Rob, that I really didn't care if we ate soup every night.  I just wanted to stay home with my baby! And really, it's so true!! So as I sit here in, well... to be honest, who knows how old these clothes are! ha! I'm thankful for a husband that works so hard so that I get to spend so much time at home with my babies!! And my goodness... we have so much more than enough!! I could really want nothing more!!!
... ok, I really need some Rubbermaid drawers/organizers to get our girls' closet in order so I can start washing and putting baby clothes away.  But that's reachable. and manageable.  I think.  ha!

so, lately when I see something on social media that might typically make me wish, gosh... I wish my house looked like that, or I looked like that, or... fill in the blank, I'm trying really hard to just be thankful for that person.  And guess what.  It's working :) 

So here is to putting a stop to comparison!  Because really, what good does it do?! ♥

Let's be thankful for our own blessings, friends!
xoxo ♥
