Girls Getaway Turned Mama Moment

Over the weekend I went about an hour north and enjoyed the sunshine of the City of Angels. ||LA||



20140113-110242.jpg It was my sister’s birthday so it was the perfect excuse to leave the babies with their dada and eat unbelievably delicious food, engage in tons of girl talk, && shop! We discover some amazing little thrift stores and just wandered around to our next adventure.



20140113-110744.jpg It was so much fun BUT man this mama missed her babies! Am I the only one who’s like, “GIRL TIME! GIRL TIME! WOO!” Fast forward a few hours and I’m stalking my husbands insta for photos and texting him for updates?! My guess is that it comes with the territory…. But maybe I’m just a little obsessed with them, and if that’s the case I’m totally fine with it. I mean who could blame me? They are as sweet and full of personality as can be and cute to boot! I mean. Yeah! I’m fully obsessed. Being a mom does something so gnarly to your heart. It has created a level of ownership in me that I’ve never had before. I 100% believe that my babies belong to God before they belong to me. He created them and loves them even more than i do. BUT He chose me! I repeat ||HE CHOSE ME TO BE THEIR MAMA|| that is huge && I certainly do not take it lightly. I have been commission to train them and teach them in the ways of The Lord. It is my job to pour into them with love, affection, knowledge, creativity, adventure, and deep passion. I am privileged to stay home with them daily. Of course I make claims about wanting to get away and needing a break from time to time but the relationship I have with them has changed me at a core level and I never want to put distance there. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having time to yourself. There is nothing wrong with going away for the weekend. There is nothing wrong with date nights or sighing in relief after you’ve tucked them in bed for the night after a long day. Mamas need their fill up time as well but what I’m learning is that I cannot separate myself from Phinneus and Tallulah because when I’m with them I am full.

A-dress-ing social justice//


Did you know?!
•Globally the average cost of a slave is $90.

•There are approximately 20 to 30 million slaves in the world today.

•According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year. More than 70 percent are female and half are children.

•The average age a teen enters the sex trade in the U.S. is 12 to 14-year-old.

•California harbors 3 of the FBI’s 13 highest child sex trafficking areas on the nation: Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego.

•Between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.

Now that you know you will be held accountable for your knowledge!

Partner with the heart of God. End modern day slavery. Do not be silent. Do not turn a deaf ear to such a huge issue. Do not allow this to be an out of sight out of mind problem. Human trafficking is real and it is going on all around us. It is not something that only happens in third world countries. It it happening all across the United States as well! We cannot be silent. Those women and children need us to be their voice while they have lost theirs.

This month I have made a commitment to participate in the global movement called Dressember. Dressember is a fun and quirky way of raising money and raising awareness about a very serious issue. 100% of the funds that we raise are going straight to the International Justice Mission, to end the greatest social injustice of our time! Check out www.dressember.net to hear more about this movement and to make a donation!

&&never ever forget how powerful your prayers are! Keep praying. Start praying. Let’s make a difference and leave a lasting mark on this earth.
