It's no secret that blog land has become the mother ship of perfection...
And we all went for that ride.
The average Mommy can now plan a party like a pro.
She can pin it, make it, bake it and write a blog post about it!
But what happens when that blog perfect mommy crashes and burns?
Does she stop enjoying what matters most?
Does she fear the failure of creating magazine worthy parties?
Does she just take a deep breath and smile?
She knows it's not about the decorations nor the matching cake pops.
Somewhere between planning a party and writing a blog, we find ourselves consumed.
Those days are no longer my friend!
I have once again found the JOY!
I proudly walked the dollar party isle at Wal mart.
Maddy picked out a few favors and we were ready!
Parties past, this girl would have list a mile long.
She would clean like Jesus was on His way and prepare a feast.
Free at last
Free at last
Praise God... I'm free at last!
I passed the torch and need for perfection and Maddy was up for the challenge.
She decorated while I cooked and we just enjoyed the moment.
And if I must be honest here... I didn't scrub tubs nor floors!
That is a first for me y'all.
Can I tell you how freeing letting go feels?
I am learning to turn my stress for the try hard life into Joy!
You wanna something that means the most to me?
My kids loved it!
Yesterday, this sweet girl Shelby, turned 23!
She and my oldest have been dating for a few years and I could not love her more.
That's what it's all about folks...
And next time when you worry about planning a party just remember one thing...
Your kids won't remember the number of comments and likes on your blog.
What they will remember is the love shared on their special day.
oh..and cake. They will remember the cake.
make it a good one!
My new motto for life.
Make memories not blog post.
