When I realized that the main character was a Mom blogger, I almost sank down into my seat from embarrassment and crawled out of the theater. The whole blogging thing still makes me a bit mortified. Love writing. Love photos, but yeah, it's just embarrassing. The movie was about far more than her blog, though. It was mostly about this group of Moms who just wanted to get away from it all for a night, let their hair down and have some fun. I get that, too. Getting away and having fun? Sign me up.
The main thing that really got me is when she talked about how this (being a Mom), is all she ever wanted and how she feels so guilty sometimes for not always being happy. I know that feeling far too well. Living my lifelong dream and still feeling restless, like there's something I'm supposed to be doing with myself, but I'm not sure what that is. That crazy feeling of knowing you're beyond blessed and yet, it still feels like there's something missing...or that you were made for more.
Today was my last day in my 20's and although we didn't do anything wild and crazy to wrap up my 20's with a bang, we had a good day at home together. We were planning on going to Bible Study, but the kids were sick and so we stayed home, played outside, had a picnic, worked in the garden, got caught up on laundry and cleaned the bathrooms. Goodness, typing that out sounds like it must have been a pretty lame day. Really, it wasn't. I'm actually really enjoying my clean bathrooms and I love the smell of clean whites. Yep, that's my life.
A few photos from my last day in my 20's.
These two, having lunch outside. They were giggling like crazy, to the point of driving me a bit nuts and then Paisley stopped and whispered to her brother "I love you". Their relationship blesses my socks off. I'm not a perfect Mom, but these two adore each other and that tells me that I must be doing something right.
Garden helper. Isn't she the cutest little mess?
Hope you've had a good day, friends!
