“When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.” -Venerable Fulton Sheen I couldnt make it through the life's storms without this man. Selfless, sacrificial, patient beyond measure, the most hardworking man I've ever known. A man that makes me laugh in moments when all I want to do is cry. Life can be difficult. Marriage can have it's challenges. Marrying someone that makes you want to be a better version of yourself is the greatest gift. Currently at a work event, while Im home with the littles, poor sweet George who is still coughing up a storm - I sit here awaiting his return - knowing that when he is home all is right with the world. As a fun aside, swipe to see a wee young EM back in his swim coach and swimmer days 😂. Oh how far we have come.
Another night of coughing littles. Nebulizers, balms, and honey for all. Thankfully the girls are doing well and Theo is mostly back to normal. Bastian and George are just taking turns giving their parents a scare. If youve been here a while you know that last Advent we spent it in the hosptial with G, and then in bed with the C. If youve been here a long time you know our adventures with S and his breathing issues. So many ER trips I lost count. We now own 3 pulse ox machines and a stethoscope to listen to lungs. We dont play around. Our nights are exhausting but morning with this sweet ball of joy are glorious. Please pray they heal quickly and can sleep tonight, and pray that the girls and Theo stay healthy!
The love Theo has for his "baby boy" is something special. The level of maturity I have witnessed in a boy who was once nicknamed "spicy" by his teachers 😂 is a real gift. To watch him grow. To watch him take on responsibility I never asked him to assume, but which he does with so much love for his little brother is truly incredible. "Jesus is living next to you, in the brothers and sisters with whom you share your daily existence.” - Pope St. John Paul II
I remove the tough bottom part of the stem, then place them on a baking sheet, drizzle olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and the juice of half of a fresh lemon. In a shallow dish combine bread crumbs, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and grated parmesan cheese. Due to the size of our family and amount of food needed, I used a second baking sheet and placed it on the rack below. If you use a harder veg, like the carrot, add your veggies earlier on, after 15 minutes of baking, to allow for them to finish at the same time as your chicken, while you will want to wait until 30 minutes in to add your asparagus.
As Santa is going to be delivering the kids gifts to Italy this year, I thought how fun would it be if Santa sent some reindeer to help them in their flight? Traveling with 5 passports and for us also medical papers to prove the need for the kids inhalers, you need something to help you find things quickly. A clear zipper pouch which I picked up from Target, filled with some of my favorite skincare products from TonyMoly, like the makeup remover wipes, cleanser, toner, and moisturizer – will help keep my skin from rebelling like a hormonal teenager. Pregnant or not, being stuck on a plane for 7 hours isn’t the most comfortable of situations so an amazing neck pillow, and lumbar support pillow are a must have!
I am not a fashion blogger, so whether these are on trend or not, that I can’t tell you – what I can tell you, is that every item here is mom-of-three-crazy-kids APPROVED! It is shorter, and should be worn with high waisted pants, such as the denim posted below, but it is one of the most comfortable tops I’ve worn recently. The V-Neck button down tank is a great staple piece, also available in a burnt orange color. I’m pretty picky about the texture of my denim, as I’m not a fan of when they’re too thin that they feel like leggings, or too thick where I feel like I should be in a Marlboro ad.
This time of year we are so consumed by making sure the Christmas cards are sent out on time (mine yet to be addressed), that our pastor’s Christmas cookies are baked, and that we find everyone the PERFECT gift. The cookies don’t need to be Pinterest perfect, and Amazon Prime can get you those “perfect” gifts all from the comfort of your couch! This year partnering with the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio, to give a little comfort to those spending the holidays away from home. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting friends and family, staying home, or are taking care of a sick loved one while at a place such as the Ronald McDonald House and are far from home, Christmas isn’t about the location.
