You guys won’t believe how badly I want to be here. I just can’t seem to get the words out of my head, which is driving me crazy (and in turn driving my husband crazy). I know I want to write, I know I need to get out of my head, I’ve just been struggling the last few weeks. Maybe it’s just a phase of life as a blogger that I’m going through, whatever, I will get through this. Let’s start by doing a Life Lately post.


I just finished re-reading the Darkness series by KF Breene. I love fantasy and really enjoyed most of the books in this series, however, really struggled with the last one. Easy and light reading, great when you just need to switch off. Looking for a new series to start on. Any ideas?


I’m looking for great music to run to. I’ve started running on a Saturday with my sister and need some good upbeat music to run to. So I’ve been listening to a lot of those. Plus, I’ve been catching up on the artists that will be playing at K-Day on 4 March. I am so looking forward to this event!


There are so many feels going on. I can’t reveal anything just yet, maybe in the next day or a few. But I’m overwhelmed, scared, excited, ecstatic and just feeling all the feels with this news.

Also, feeling a bit worried and stressed out about the sale of our company that will happen soon. We’re not sure where we stand with our jobs and how secure our future is but I’m taking it one day at a time and trusting that God won’t put me through a situation I can’t get through.


Lots of fun activities for me. Did my first Parkrun at Meerendal Wine Estate last week. It was so beautiful and I can’t wait to go back this Saturday. Then we did the Color Run in Stellenbosch Saturday past. I wanted to do The Grind on Saturday but I was too late with the tickets (anyone have a spare laying around somewhere lol). Looking at spending a lot of time at the beach with the boys to end off the summer season. We’re also super water conscious and praying really hard for rain.


The Grind


Matthew is doing amazingly well at school. Talks about his teacher said this and his teacher said that. When I contradict the teacher I get “But Mommy, my teacher said…” He is 6 years and 1 month old and doesn’t have one lose tooth yet. I know I’m worried about nothing and that it will happen when it’s ready but it’s kinda hard when you have all these kids around you all losing their teeth. And they’re younger than Matthew.

Ethan is 2 and half years old and driving me batty! He is such an independent, stubborn child, I wonder how he’s mine sometimes. He throws the best tantrums, refuses to use the potty (or the big toilet), doesn’t sleep through the night in his own bed, and fights constantly with Matthew. But he gives the longest hugs, the best kisses, he can ask for something so sweetly, melting my heart, and seemingly knows how to get out of a scolding from his dad.


I can’t love these kids any more than I already do, seriously. Being a mom has turned me into such a sap, sheesh!
