Blissful and Domestic - Creating a Beautiful Life on Less: Remembering...

Saturday, June 17, 2017


"Today was a whole new level of exhausting. We had grocery shopping in the morning, school lessons in the afternoon, meals needed preparing, the baby needed feeding, laundry had to be done, dishes cleaned, and the list goes on and on. As I sat nursing my baby tonight, feeling the exhaustion really settle in...Like down to my bones.... a smile came to my face because I knew I had poured everything I had into these three babies I've been blessed with. Yes the days are long and yes my house is a mess and oh yeah I'm going to zonk out once my head hits the pillow, but man I love this life. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I pray for more days like this, when I'm reminded of how truly sacred this mom gig is and how I'm loving every messy, beautiful, crazy minute of it.

I love how on Facebook little memories pop up in your feed. Things you shared weeks, months, and even years ago. Today a picture popped up on my feed with a short little snippet I shared back in January. Reading it today, my heart was filled with gratitude again for these sweet blessings I am able to call mine. I love being their mom. I can't imagine doing anything else than what I am doing right now. This season right here is a good one and I want to relish every single exhausting, hilarious moment of it.

Today we cleaned house, Tallia took a two hour nap (in her crib I might add), I took the kids to the pool, we came home to dinner in the crock-pot, and once the baby was in bed, I watched Beauty and the Beast with the olders. It was a full day and it was so good.

Oh and Tallia is officially on the move. She does the cutest little butt scoot to get around and I have loved seeing her curiosity come to the surface. She is exploring and experiencing everything. She's keeping us on our toes and has us making sure all little toys are cleaned up or she will insert them in her mouth. I don't think my floors have ever been this cleaned :)

  1. Hi Danielle! I love your blog and have been following you for years. You have a beautiful family. I'm a full time working mom with 2 busy kids, and I find I have the best intentions in the beginning of the week for eating healthy, however one mid week rolls around we are so busy it doesn't go that way. I've never cooked in the crock pot before. Can you recommend any easy recipes for new crock pot newbies for the summer. Thanks!!!

  2. You have such a lovely family and a perfect attitude of gratitude! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Danielle, your family is so adorable. The baby looks just like your hubby. BTW, you were mentioned by another you tuber. Lydia, from Five For 5 meals. She said she just loves you. I love all your posts and videos You and your family are a bright spot in my life.
