Painting has always been something I have enjoyed, but I really can’t remember the last time I painted anything besides furniture or the walls of our home. Lately I have been inspired by watercolour art on Pinterest and so I decided to give it a go!

Sometimes I wonder… what did I do with all my free time before kids? Having the responsibility of looking after a small human x2 is far from easy, but it is the most rewarding feeling at the end of the day. When I look back at my single days (having only myself worry about) I don’t know why I didn’t accomplish more with my time. With two kids I find myself accomplishing more than ever, or so it seems!
There’s nothing quite like the experience of growing a human inside your belly, so it is wonderful to be able to capture these moments in time with pictures. I am not a huge fan of maternity pictures (of myself), I really try to avoid the camera for 9 months. But my mom persuade me into doing them – I am happy I did. However, when I look back at these pictures I remember how tired, sore, nauseous, big and “I don’t even care what I look like” felt like. A few of the wonderful things mother’s go through to receive the most beautiful creation of all, a baby!
Another weekend, come and gone. Friday night Brent and I spent the night relaxing at home with the kiddos. This usually means we are stuck watching tractors on youtube until a little 2 year old goes nighty night. On Saturday we celebrated two friends tying the knot, this was our last wedding of the year, hurrah! My parents babysat Jack while Max tagged along for majority of the wedding. By 9 pm Max was partied out, so he joined his brother at Gramma and Papa’s. Brent and I had so much fun with our friends – we laughed, we danced, we sang, and we ate (a whole lot)! We really took advantage of our night without our kid’s. Sometimes it’s a little tough to have time to spend together without your kids needing all your undivided attention, I’m sure many parents can relate.
