So, this is kind of a non-outfit outfit post. I put this awesome dress on to show you guys but never went anywhere in it. I. Love. This. Dress! Which is why I couldn’t just wait until I wore it out (like a normal person) and then blog about it. No way! I had to put it on for no other reason at all but to show you, which is also why it’s a semi-put together outfit. In real life I’m not sure I’d wear the white heels in public. I need to figure out what my going out in public look will be with this dress. I’m not quite sure.
I got an interesting email the other day from a sweet girl sharing with me her time management challenges and how it has become almost impossible to balance her family life with her blog life. She was frustrated and looking for advice. This email got me thinking. It brought me to the realization that so many of us woman are trying to figure out the duties of our demanding “external” lives while trying to maintain a very necessary “internal” life. I don’t proclaim to be an expert by any means, but I attempted to encourage this girl with some scripture (Phil. 4:13, “I can do all things…”) and gave her the run down of a typical day in MY life. So, I thought I’d share a bit of that with you to…
I’ll spare you all the nitty gritty details but my day starts roughly at 5:00, well, my alarm goes off at 5:00. I’m at work at 8:00 and I do 90% of my picture taking during my lunch hour which is at random times of the day. I try never to go at noon because the sun is always too high for my pictures to come out right. When I leave work I usually have about an hour and a half before the hubby and kids get home. In that time I get something out for dinner, squeeze in a 40 minute workout (sometimes) and publish a quick post. When the family gets home, I spend the rest of the night with them eating dinner, giving baths and spending some quality time until the kids go got sleep. I’m usually asleep by midnight….usually. My life would be a train wreck without the help of the Hubs.
And if you’re wondering why my last few posts were taken indoors, it’s because I took the pictures during my lunch break one day. I thought about bringing the outfits to work with me, but just the thought of changing in the car made me sweat. Thank goodness I work so close to home.
