life update according to Instagram.

Why oh why do I feel like I start every post with excuses and apologies? Too busy, too stressed, too…uninspired? Often times the thought of doing something is more intimidating than the actual act itself. When I take the time to mull things over they seem to evolve until they’re bigger than me and the next thing I know something as small as writing an email (or a blog post) feels insurmountable. Ever since childhood, I’ve been known to do and learn things “the hard way” but, I gotta say…that hasn’t always proven to be the worst way. If I throw myself in head first at least things are happening, they’re getting done! I’m going to try my very best to not let time or pressure get the best of me and act instead of overthink. Isn’t part of growing up and becoming a big girl truly knowing yourself and what works best for you, and then making choices based on that? Even if it’s not always seen as the “right way.”

So now onto my excuses… ūüėČ

¬†I haven’t been completely absent from the world of the inter web, I’ve been continuing to create and learn more about video production and editing through my YouTube channel. I won’t bore you with links to my latest videos (just kidding, I totally will. But look! There’s something in it¬†for you! It’s a giveaway!)

I’ve also been much busier with work lately. I’ve known and loved both families I’m working for for over 2 years now, but I’m working now more than ever both of them. It’s just been a bit of an adjustment, on top of some unfortunate (and also some amazing) circumstances falling on one of the families. They needed¬†a little extra help the past few weeks¬†and I was happy to be there. I mean I’m not a completely selfless little bird, they did pay me. ūüôā But still. I felt like I was¬†able to swoop in and save the day be there for them when they needed.¬†I like being someone’s “person.” Is that weird?

So anyways, there just aren’t enough hours in a day sometimes and poor ITSF was left here for the month of February all by it’s lonesome. Things are getting back to normal and I’m finding a natural rhythm¬†so I can make more room for things that have been ignored lately. Like the blog! Oh, and laundry, and cleaning, and that oil change and tune up, and that dentist appointment, and…

I did manage to share¬†a couple photos¬†while I was away, so here’s a life update according to Instagram. ūüôā Enjoy!

So to sum things up…I played with play dough & chalk, ate ice cream & drank coffee, took¬†some photos with¬†my friends at RBofMcD & McMarden, and got a brow wax. Riveting, I know.

Not pictured: the look of defeat¬†that can only be understood¬†after being called a ” pissy blue head” for the quadrillionth¬†time in one day by a 3 year old. (What does it mean?! What does it even mean?!) The bits of play dough that dry out and become tiny daggers that hide in the rug¬†ready to strike but only once you’re¬†barefoot. The red glow of brake lights¬†that start to maybe look pretty except it’s been an hour and I’ve gone one mile.

Also not pictured: the sweet snuggles &¬†genuine innocence &¬†goldfish crackers & belly laughs &¬†million other things that make working with kids actually amazing and what the heck was I even talking about before? Oh right,¬†the dried play dough. That shit’s¬†dangerous.
