A month ago it seemed like all of a sudden my Facebook and Instagram feeds were full of women with FabFitFun boxes, claiming you'd receive around $200 worth of products for $40 with a subscription. Being an avid subscription lover with Ipsy and wanting to stretch my dollar as far as possible, I decided I'd try the Fall box out. I was curious to see if all the 'hype' was worth it. I am nowhere near cool enough to be sponsored for this post, I spent my own money so my opinions are truly my own. Here is my honest and unpaid review of the Fall FabFitFun box...
Today we went for a drive with the main goal of taking pictures. I want to so badly to have professional photos taken of our family but that's not something we can afford at the moment. So instead Tom and I pass the camera, and Easton, back in forth in hopes of capturing images that melt our hearts. I feel like today we succeeded...
Lately I feel like I have been giving myself a lot of unnecessary stress, worrying about things I didn't need to. I am convinced that it's one of the reasons it took me so long to bounce back from getting sick and also brought me to a rut with my blog. I lost all creative energy and even though I have a long list of upcoming post ideas, I was drained and couldn't commit to one idea.
In times like these, I find it very important to focus on all that is good in my life instead of creating things that are bad out of thin air. To be honest, there isn't really a bad things going on in my life right now. There is a lot of uncertainty but that comes with life and I need to learn to not only be ok with that but patient as well. So today I am going to go for a walk with outside with my son and clear my head. While I'm walking I'll be reminding myself of all the amazing things I have going on right now...
* Easton is healthy and happy
* Tom is so supportive and is able to handle whatever stress I throw at him
* We have a roof over our heads and food in the fridge
* I was able to get a pair of new glasses so I can finally see clearly again
* We're traveling as a family in a couple of weeks to one of my favorite places ever
* Easton and I have two trips lined up less than a month from each other to visit family
* I am loved
Fall is in the air, or should I say: Fall is all over social media. I feel like all I see anyone post about these days are pumpkin spiced lattes and Halloween. Growing up in Southern California I never experienced a true Autumn until I moved to North Carolina, even then I longed for my favorite Spring and Summer.
This year something changed, despite not being on the pumpkin spiced flavored anything train, I'm excited for Fall! It's mostly due to Easton and getting him to experience things at this fun age with him and partly because I got some cool new pieces of fall clothing. Even though the first day of Fall isn't until September 22nd, I'm planning ahead with an Autumn Bucket List that I'm excited to share with you...
I'm a twenty-something mama who honestly has no clue what I want to do in life at the moment. For the longest time that scared me but now I embracing it and documenting it here.
