A Penny For Your Thoughts - Wedding Updates To Come and Inspiration

I am back and aiming to keep you much more updated on the goings on in the Roger abode.  That's right, I am officially Mrs. Ryan Rogers!  So Surreal... It feels like it was a long time coming, but in reality we have not hit 3 years together yet!  Being a Mrs. is overwhelming in the best way.  I am overwhelmed with my love for Bill and the fact that we get to spend life together... It's almost too much for my heart to imagine. 

I am happy to report I had the most lovely wedding that ever existed.  For me, it could not have been more perfect.

Honestly, I feel like it was a dream come true and I have to pinch myself often.  While I was prepared for something to go entirely wrong, the food to be ruined, my dress to rip, and people to be standing around not having a good time - none of those things happened.  In fact, everything went better than expected.


To start back on this blogging train, I want to update you on each item involved in the wedding; and while I am not sure how to tackle it yet, I know I am going to try.  Wedding week, the wedding day, our honeymoon, and life since we returned are what I hope to give you a glimpse into this week, as best I can.  Be prepared for lots of swooning and an over pouring of my heart about my love for Bill and the amount that it completes me.  I love coming home to his smiling face!

I hope to give you tons to read about in the coming months and to find my voice all over again.  I have missed consistently pouring my heart out and I think I am struggling with processing because once I discovered this nothing has fulfilled me quite the same.  Pray for me to push through this block and find my way back to writing.  I have plenty of inspiration surrounding me, I just need to tap into it!

Check back with me tomorrow :)  Get used to it!

In the Nursery: Whole Hearted Parenting Manifesto

I recently finished a book by Brene Brown titled, DaringGreatly
It really moved me, and I am definitely still processing it.
At the beginning of the book I wasn’t resonating deeply with the topic of vulnerability, as most people will tell you I am an “open book”.  I will answer most questions without holding back and love to deep dive into good conversation.  However, what I came to realize through her many examples is that we all wrestle with vulnerability, guilt and shame throughout this book even if is more momentary than constant.  I gleaned SO MUCH from this book that I did not anticipate, and I thought I would share this Parenting Manifesto that she put right at the end of the book.  I am printing it and framing it for our nursery, as I think it communicates some deep parts of my heart cry for parenting my kiddos well.

I hope this resonates with someone else as much as it did with me.  
I needed these words to remind me that parenting is not a checklist, it is a lifestyle.  …

A Penny For Your Thoughts - On Insecurity and Looking Back

I have felt compelled to write about something lately, and been shying away from it, which is not my typical style.  As I look back over my life, I have recently realized that I finally feel like "enough".  I know my worth is in the Lord and I know I am beautiful and worth people's time, but that has not always been my story.  Far too often from the ages of 12 to 30, I defined my worth by whether someone was interested in dating me or not and after I got married, whether people "liked me" and wanted to be my friend or to hire me.  Was I pretty enough?  Interesting enough? Worth someone's time?  Talented enough?  Smart enough? etc...
Recently, as pictures pop up in my Timehop (an app that shows pictures taken the same day as far back as it can reach through social media and the camera roll on my phone), I distinctly remember feeling like I was either fat or unattractive in most pictures.  I remember being embarrassed of my pants size.  I remember wearing to…

At the Library - May through September 2019 Reading

We had another baby in May (SO much more on that later) and blogging has obviously taken a back seat, but I am still reading for pleasure and have managed, in my sons first four months of life, to complete these 8 books!  Y'all, I remember a time when even completing 2 books a year would have sincerely sounded daunting, much less with a newborn.  If you want to read more, you can find the time!  Take stock of your days and see where you are wasting hours.  For some of these, I listened to the audio book while I was pumping or watering the garden.  
Rather than give you an individual breakdown of each of these books, I just want to report I found them all incredibly enjoyable.  A total cross section of a food memoir to a psychology deep dive to nature centric novels, I would recommend them all in different capacities.
