Through The Woods + Video

Lately I've been just doing video's. To my surprise they take half the time to do than a picture post. I also figured its better to have some post than no post. 
I was able to put work aside and take my son on a little walk through the neighborhood. I originally wanted to go to a park, but he wanted to stay nearby. I've learned that a meaningful half an a half spent with him is more precious then all day spent with me on the computer. Hoping to make a family day trip this Saturday and really document the moments and memories we'll make.

A Little Birthday Video

My little boy turned four this month. I haven't put up any pictures, but did manage to put a little video from his actual birthday. He chose to spend it at the beach. It was very windy and super cold, but it was also a day that he will remember as he got to do exactly what he wanted. I'm blessed to be his mommy!

Nature Scavenger Hunt

If you were to go back and read some of my old posts from this past year (2013) you will find that I worked too much and kept on saying I wanted to 'be a better mom' or 'wished to focus on my family more'. Well, this year I decide not to say that! Instead I'm just going to do what I said I would. 

I've got an even busier schedule this year as my career grows. I am LOVING all the work I've been getting and doing. Of course the more I have the less my family gets, but I've made that decision to just still make them my number one. 

Yesterday instead of doing 'work' or cleaning the studio I went on a little nature adventure with my boys. I found a nature scavenger hunt printout that my son could do and wouldn't get bored with. With his camera & magnifying glass we were off for a family walk. It was really beautiful to have spent that time with them. Made me wish for the warmer summer days. The walk wasn't too long, but we had a lot of fun learning along the way!

One of my decisions this year is not to worry about work or the amount I have, but instead just spend time with my son and let God take care of the rest. It's been a beautiful mind shift, one that helps me take the focus of the 'doing' and give that part to God while I do the things that really matter to Him like building up my family and loving on them.
