It has been a MINUTE since I've done an actual personal, from the heart, "here's where we've been" post on Nosh and Nurture and I feel like I need to bring a lot of that back.
Since becoming a mother of two, I feel like I am trying to relearn who I am, or maybe I'm just getting to know the woman I'm growing into. Either way, it's been a lot of adjusting and prayer and self discovery.
This year has been spent healing and loving so hard and so big.
In 2021 we lost our beloved mother-in-law to the virus. My husband was also very sick and there has been a lot of healing that's needed to take place. My parents are also very ill and it's been a season of struggle co-existing with joy.
We are trying to grasp every opportunity and live life to the fullest. With our two sweet bundles of pure light and joy, it's been easy to focus on the goodness and what we are grateful for. God was so right when He said children are the greatest blessing.
In the world of babes, we are still homeschooling, LOVING Masterbooks for most subjects and The Good and the Beautiful for math.
Greyson graduated Kindergarten and is now in 1st grade and is still the BEST kitchen helper. He plays piano beautifully, is so smart, is reading and is a whiz at math already and he just joined his first soccer team! #SoccerMomWhatUp.
Lexi is as smart as her brother, 19 months old and can count to ten, knows her colors, talks up a storm and sings her ABCs. I'm actually mind blown at what she knows just by listening to him. I adore my sweet princess and still can't believe most days that I get to be a girl mom too.
On the work front, honestly things slowed down SO, SO much through the pandemic. Having a TV show (something you dreamed of forever) come out the same month a pandemic takes over the world is not ideal.
Not even a little bit. We couldn't travel to do the press tour and though viewership started off so strong and the reviews were so humbling and so, so sweet, viewership dwindled and we were left looking for a new home for the show.
Luckily, we have found one and I have an amazing producer and co-creator that has unwavering belief in me and us and our projects and we are in the baby stages of creating something new and exciting to bring to our audience and I'm so looking forward to pouring back into my passions and showing my kids that it's important for them to follow their dreams and do the things that bring glory to God and helps others.
I'm hoping you all will stick around to see what's next.
I would love to know what all of you have been up to? I've missed the personal connection here on the blog. IG has been my home for all of our conversations, and I love that, but this is the place that feels like home. My little space to share me and our little family and home and mission and I'd love to talk to more of you that stop by to hang out amongst it all.
Share in the comments below your favorite memory of your 2022 this year. I'd love to know!
