Hey friends, Like many of you, I am at the beach with my family right now celebrating the 4th of July. The weather has been beautiful and the girls are loving the sand and the water. I have already taken waaay to many pictures and I can't wait to share them with all of you!

Saying this, I want y'all to know that instead of sitting in Panera all morning using up their wifi, I'm going home to be with my family. With our new "schedule" of Montgomery and Dothan, I feel like this time is extra special these days. I'll be honest...the transition has worn on me already. Going back and forth is exhausting and learning how to still be a mom, wife, blogger, and friend on top of a working gal has been an adjustment. That doesn't mean that I don't enjoy the challenge or regret our decisions. Because, work has already brought satisfaction into my life and I am beginning to see God's big picture and how this all fits in.

So, no pictures today or a big motivating post. R is still trying to teach me how to use the iPad like my desktop and I'm slowly learning how to blog on here instead of my desk in Montgomery. Bear with me, techies! Instead, I'm about to lather on some spf 30 and adorn my new Payless sunhat (it's pretty cute if I do say so myself!) and hit the salty air.

I love y'all to pieces. Be sure to check out BPW this week and after that I'll try to get some pictures up. Hope your vacation is filled with food, happy smiles, and lazy days.

Till next time, let your light shine!

Blessings, christen
