Thursday Latelies

Let's have a serious moment, okay?  Today as I was biking home I was thinking about what I should include on my Thursday Latelies this week. I got to thinking about my blog and I got this warm, fuzzy feeling.  I am really loving this experience.  You guys make it so worth it for me.  Every time I see a comment, I get super excited!  It's like I've made all these new friends.  And you guys are the best!

Above and beyond the great connections I've made, this blog has helped me in other ways. I've always been self-conscious and uncomfortable in my own skin for as long as I can remember.  I always wondered at what age does it finally click...when do you just become comfortable and happy with who you are and how you look.  I kept waiting for that magic time where I would stop comparing myself to everyone else and it never happened...until this blog...this wonderful little blog came into my life.  I'm happy with who I am and I finally accept me with all my imperfections.  And it makes me so joyful that this has coincided with motherhood.  I don't want my child (and hopefully some day children) to have a mother who has low self esteem...that's not a good message to send!  So I am thankful for this blog and I am thankful that I have finally learned to embrace myself no matter what!  Thank you for joining me on this ride.

Now onto other great things...

I bought this rug for Talinn's room and I LOVE it.  It makes everything come together and looks so good!

I got some Kate Spade sunglasses off Gilt Groupe and they came at just the right time.  I lost my prescription sunglasses (bummer!) and I think that these might just be my replacement.  I've never had aviators so this a big step for me...I know, I know aviators are old news!

There are so many great things about summer.  One of those things is the Chicago Green City Farmer's Market.  They have such amazing fare there and it's all organic.  And I love that they hold it on Wednesday in addition to Saturday because you can beat the crowd.  Here's the bounty I picked up yesterday.  

And lastly, here is my favorite photo of T this week.  I just love these sweet moments that he has every once in awhile.  He can just be so tender sometimes and I adore that about him.

Have a happy Thursday!  And check out Bex...A Diary for more Thursday Latelies.

  1. I couldn't agree more! Joining the blogging community is the best thing I have done in years! Have met some of the MOST amazing women and made so many life long friends! Keep it up!

  2. I like your new Kate Spade sunnies! Great for summer! =D

  3. I love that photo of T. And I'm so glad you have felt that shift come since you started the blog. I've wondered about that myself, too. I'm sure that some day it will just click, like it did for you, but maybe getting comfortable in my own skin will be a gradual process that I grow into. I kind of hope that I can find something that will just make it "click" like your blog did for you. All I know is that selfishly I'm glad you blog because it is so fun to read and see what you have been up to. I love it!

    1. I swear women are so hard on themselves! We are all so amazing but for some reason we just have a hard time seeing it. It definitely will click one day. I remember talking to my mom awhile ago and asking her about it and she said one day she just stopped comparing herself to others. You are beautiful and I love having you as a SIL!


Thank you so much for commenting! It really makes my day!
