    An update on our beautifully mediocre life.

    Hello to all of our Beautifully Mediocre friends and followers! I have been slacking, and for that I’m sorry. My mind has been elsewhere and blogging just hasn’t quite fit into our schedule lately. I feel like I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I have been so busy house hunting, spring cleaning, bachelorette party planning, and dog poop scooping… so much dog poop… yay springtime! And to top it all off, Everest has had a fever for 2 days now and just wants all the mommy snuggles, which I am totally ok with. But with sick babes, comes minimal sleep. And with minimal sleep, comes a whole schedule thrown outta…

    Dear Beautifully Mediocre Body,

    Dear Beautifully Mediocre Body, I need to start off by saying, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for being such a hater lately, I’m just in one of those slumps.

    To my best friend on our first Valentine’s Day as husband and wife.

    Dear husband, Our first Valentine’s Day as husband and wife is upon us. You’re working, like the amazing provider you are. I’m home with our sweet and wild toddler. We won’t see each other for a few hours still, but I’ve been thinking about you all day. Being newly married doesn’t necessarily change the feelings of Valentine’s Day, I loved you last year and I’ll love you the next. But what it does do, is make me very reminiscent of our time together so far. It leaves me feeling so incredibly content with where my life is. Do I wish we were living in our own home already? Yes. Am I still trying to come…
