It’s a good thing I didn’t make any firm commitments of posting every week because I clearly have already failed! It is amazing how just trying to become a Mom again takes up so much time and energy. I am so grateful that I have gotten at least to this point in my recovery process – Cole and I are doing great together. I try and do an activity each morning…for me it helps me get out and active, for him it just gives him something to do other than hang around at home. Jason will often take us on our outings to the store or running other errands. I do better when I don’t have to be in charge of driving as well as getting out. But we also like to have friends come over to play. There are plenty of families with little ones in our neighborhood that we invite over or head to their house for an hour or two. I love those days because it gets Cole around some action and it gives me a chance to visit with my friends. It’s good for my healing process.
So, in an effort to do “Mom Things” I have not had the energy to think about my blog (which, based on your comments, you don’t mind me taking it slowly). However, I wanted to post the photos of bits and pieces from our “Favorite Things Party” that was such a great success last spring. (Check out my previous post for more info on how to plan your own party).
Here are a few of my favorite things about our event!
As you can see, everything we did, from the decorations to the party favors, focused on celebrating the individual. Does it take more time to do this? Yes. But is it worth it? Absolutely. The impact of each woman knowing that they were important, loved, unique, and worth celebrating is priceless. Would you like me to do a Download Day with our party favor quote? How about if I do that next time. Watch for it and enjoy sharing a “favorite little something” with those you care about.
