When I think of Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co, I think of my long wish-list of pieces for our home. Naturally! But when they asked me if I would like to participate in their campaign involving their new spring line, I could not refuse.
Today is the perfect day to reflect on that. Two years ago today we became a family of five. A sweet little baby made our family complete and changed our lives forever. As I look back on pictures of our kids especially, I catch myself always asking where did the time go? And I think a lot of us can attest to that.
Time went quickly. Quickly wishing they would grow up so we didn’t have to continually change diapers, dress them, feed them, clean them, carry them down the stairs, read to them, sing to them and snuggle them. Because we were so busy. I hate that that was my excuse, but it was. Housework needed to be done, dinner needed to be made, errands needed to be run. And life doesn’t wait for us to get those things out of the way first, it keeps on moving. Quickly.
And now two years later, I look at my once little baby, and I wish I could go back to enjoy those moments more. Putting more emphasis on my little family before my busy life. Don’t get me wrong, I spent a lot of time with my kids and enjoyed plently moments! But you always have that feeling where you know you could have done just a little more to soak it all in.
So, in honor of slowing down we are going for a family walk to grab some breakfast. To reflect on our family and how much we mean to one another. Yes, life moves quickly. But take this time to join me and Schoolhouse to focus on slowing down. Do what matters most – things of this world will soon just fade away. Our lives will be enriched for choosing what really matters in the end.
