Happy Father’s Day!

IMG_6859

Happy Father’s Day to my sweet and loving hubby! Although he isn’t officially a ‘dad,’ he has already been an amazing caretaker of this little girl by taking such great care of me through my pregnancy.  Since I first met my husband, I’ve seen him interact with his nieces and nephews. He has been so amazing with them all, I always knew he’d be a great father. I can’t wait to start this parenting journey with him in about 2 months! Love you babe!

Water Your Plants

Do you get the urge to plant things when spring hits like I do? Every March/April when the weather starts easing up, I start thinking about what I can plant. This year I decided to plant two pots of lettuce. One pot has been growing great, the other one a little slower.

A few days ago, I realized I hadn’t watered my lettuce lately and the lettuce was looking a bit wilted. That evening I watered the plants. The next evening I looked out on the patio and notice the lettuce had already perked up, just from one watering!

The plant reminded me of life – and what in my life I need to water in order to experience growth. I tend to start projects, then just leave them hanging out there, for instance this blog! I love writing in this capacity (I’m an English major), but I don’t make time for it, even though it’d be a great outlet for me.

Seeing the plants perk up after one watering has motivated me to make time for the things in life that fuel me. What about you? Anything you’ve been ignoring that you should spend some time ‘watering’?
