“Don’t worry, I’m going away for awhile, but I’ll come back with a smile.”
Post number 8! Wahoo! I'll have about 15 posts on here and on my Facebook. These are NOT on my Etsy. Comment below if you want to purchase. I can ship (for an additional charge) or we can meet/schedule pick up in Lancaster, PA. These plants are discounted because some may need a little extra love. No guarantees with this sale, but there's some special deals here that you won't want to miss! All plants come with care instructions.
Another Capitata! This one is pretty big, but has some drying. Some water and love should do the trick! Asking $4.00!

It was a long weekend. One I wish never happened. My head consistently hurt, my body felt heavy, and I struggled to find the joy in most things.
A few days later, I sit here holding my son who is falling asleep on my chest. Listening to classical covers of popular pop songs. I look down only to see him asleep but still manages to smile up at me. He is my greatest joy, one that life took so long to give me. It was worth every period, every month of constant tears and the questioning of why can’t i be a mom, and even a surgery.
Why can’t life be like this forever? Why can’t I live in this moment indefinitely? Why will the storm come back one day and I’ll struggle to find my smile again, and for how long?
Him growing up doesn’t come without the extra worries and added in anxiety. Do I have enough clothes for his next growth spurt? Diapers? Will I keep producing enough milk? What is that rash? Why do you feel like you have a fever? Why do I have to go back to work and leave you for part of the day? You’re crying...did I do something wrong? I’m trying my best- as a mother and a provider- and it’s hard to know that I’ll fail sometimes. I’ll feel I’m not doing enough. I’m not good enough.
But right now, tonight, I don’t think I’ve reached greater happiness than being a mom. Oh my goodness, it’s the greatest things in my life that I’ve wanted for years. This precious boy is fixing me more than I’ve ever fixed myself. I don’t happy cry much but the tears have started to flow since writing this.
It’s not easy by any means dealing with mental health issues for most of your life, but (even if it’s seldom) on the days you’re okay- it’s great. -

journée tranquille à la plage☀️
Every flower must grow through dirt🌷

Lapping up the last few days of school holidays with this babe, the beach & the bump. On the way down Evie said “I’ll have something to write about when I go back to school about what I did on the holidays”
Girl you kidding me 🤦🏼♀️ I haven’t stopped entertaining you for the last two months but ooookay
Despite the fact kids forget everything fun you do with them, I really like her 💕
Then the long march from the rim of the cave to the edge of the cliff where we flung ourselves off and built our wings on the way down quickens to focus. You’ve got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down in order to know what do you really want in life.🍒
(En mi mente:) "El sol está muy fuerte... Mejor me quedo en casa y miro algo en Netflix". Llegué al sillón, lo miré y vi la luz del sol que entraba por la ventana. La abrí y no me pude resistir. Fui a buscar la YogaMat y me puse a practicar. Lo menos que hice fue poner Netflix... O sentarme en el sillón jajajaja 😂
Sí. En algún momento, mis pies llegarán a la cabeza. Ya van a llegar 💪🏼😁
