April Mini Post (+ some exciting news!)

THE OLD MONTH (march)

Focusing on one yoga pose clears my head. It was so refreshing to only have one physical goal for the month of March that I've decided to keep it going this month, too. I'm still working on my crow pose; my big picture goal for the year is a handstand.

Babies grow (and learn) s l o w l y. Mine is 6 months and I've been entirely too result-focused. I am seeing some progress in my baby "projects", though: she's eating a little bit more food, actually peeing in her little baby potty (post to come on that soon!) and using the sign for "milk" when she sees me.

Veggies can be luxuriously tasty and simple. There are two veggies that I'm uber excited to share with you. One is spaghetti squash (which you can cut in half, throw in a crockpot with frozen chicken breast, and have an entire meal ready with almost no prep work. The squash innards literally come apart in spaghetti form. Genius.) and zucchini (which can be scooped out, baked, and then filled with sausage, cheese, or other protein for a tasty zucchini boat dinner).

Drinking water is life-changing. The more water you drink, the less likely you are to snack, overeat at mealtimes, and get that heavy, lazy feeling in your body. As a breastfeeding mama I have been drinking almost 100 oz. per day!

Fellowship is not nice - it's necessary. Living a life mostly in my home, mostly alone, and limiting my social life to instagram has been, well, not good. God meant us to do life together, and introvert or not, I need some solid social interaction. To help with this, I became part of a three-month Mom Love Fellowship group that a blogger friend started. I'm also forcing myself out of the house more often, making friends with my neighbors, and taking phone calls. Shocking, I know.


THE NEW MONTH (april)

This month I'm doing a capsule wardrobe (known as Project 333), keeping up with my yoga pose challenge, and focusing on my baby girl's sign language.

But by far the most exciting part of this new month is that I'm toeing the lines of my comfort zone and sending out a mini newsletter! This will be a short encouragement series that goes out once a week for four weeks, for a total of four little emails just for you. I'll be giving you some real questions to guide you towards recognizing and using the talents you have. Those dreams and skills you have, even if buried deep or forgotten, are meant to shine!


I'm curious to see how this changes my connections with y'all. I so desperately want to be more than a page to you; I want to laugh and cry and pray with you - essentially, I want to be your friend. I haven't had many close friends this past year, and it resulted in a lot of unnecessary feelings of loneliness. That being said, God is always always always more than enough to fill any void in my life.

  2. I know that lonely feeling when you're sitting behind a computer. As nice as it is to hide sometimes, I miss being around others and having friends too. So, hello! I think a newsletter is a great idea!

    1. It's just so easy to get sucked into the "I'm a SAHM, so I'm home alone every day" mindset. Relationships are so important! Hello to you, too :) Thanks for visiting. I enjoyed your blog as well.
