Childhood Dreams with Goodnight Moon

Hey there Lovelies! I am missing from the bloggy world for a bit as I travel from Arizona back to Georgia and embark on an internetless journey of finding a house and turning it into a home before Mr. Superman arrives home. Until then, enjoy all of my Lovelies who will be entertaining you and be sure to show them a lot of love! Yeaaaah! As we start this second week of Guest Blogging Lovelies, I want to give a huge shout out to everyone thus far and an even bigger one to today's guest. Yes, the rumors are true, I am indeed hosting Amber from Goodnight Moon. Gah! Its okay, scream it out. Its okay to be excited. Be sure to go blog stalk her and maybe some of her awesomeness will rub off on you :)



Do you remember when you were growing up
and
you were asked the question
"What do you want to be when you grow up"?
What was your answer?
I changed my mind a few times.
I wanted to be
a teacher
a florist
a nurse
a nun.
Yes...
I said nun.
Now that I'm an adult
and
have been an adult for some time now
I think back on my list
and
realized that I am none of the things I "wanted" to be.
Life happened.
That's a simple statement isn't it?
Life happened.
But it's true.
Sometimes life throws you off the course
you thought you would be on
in life by now.
And thats okay.
I am where I should be
and
for a reason.
I am a
stay at home mommy
to 4 amazing children.
I wouldn't give that up for anything.
Like I tell my kids everyday
"Be your best".
It doesn't matter what job you have in life
just
"be your best".
So it's okay that your not where you thought you would be
right now.
Life happens.
Embrace who you are right now
and
what you are doing.
Make your moments count
and
be happy.

I wanted to be an actress. But life happened :) I still try and participate in local theater, but HR is nowhere near being the famous celeb I had imagined :)

Haha! So sorry you didn't get to fulfill your nun aspirations, but at least you have four cute kids and a good husband. :) Kinda makes up for it!

Love it! Yeah, life happens. I'm so not where I thought I would be at this point in my life. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. I heart both of you!
