Y'all... I tried to take outfit pictures twice yesterday. But you know what? Wind happened. I tried to show off my 29 week baby bump in my super cute Soon Maternity maxi dress & my new scarf from Jigsaw London that I twisted into a head wrap. I had my hair all tucked just right. And well, wind and sun and blah blah blah.
So we tried again, this time just in the front yard which is slightly sheltered from the wind... but not from almost 2 year olds...
And then I just gave up. So no, I don't have the perfect picture. Just an awkward one of my armpit and one of Magnolia doing her "dead weight" trick. And... I normally try to get my outfit posts up on Tuesday night... but here it is well into Wednesday morning.
This is real life right now: These pictures aren't worth the battle. My time is desired elsewhere and so are my attentions. When I come home late after a youth group swim party, I'd rather cuddle with the fam than type and format. And when it comes to "outfit pictures" today you get real, not staged.
So though I got a bit frustrated yesterday that my plans for a super cute post fell quickly through, it was such a blessing to be reminded that though it is great and wonderful for me to enjoy blogging and enjoy making outfits, it is not what I delight in. Real life has hiccups and a bazillion changes a minute and I am thankful for the wind and the 2 year olds doing dead weight tricks that were a part of mine yesterday that caused me to pause and evaluate all of God's goodness and his desire for me to slow down, breath, and be authentically me.
