Wishing I Were More

Do you ever wish you were more creative, had more style, had the money to be creative and have style? I find all of these great websites (Erin provides many great ones on her blog) that give inspiration for decorating at half the price. But, there is one problem....I need time, I do need money, and I need more of a creative gene. Where are all of those things I need to make my home look like it came out of Pottery Barn, Domino or Cookie magazine? I'm still trying to figure out what my "style" is. I'm still trying to figure out how to sew. Honestly, I'm still trying to get over my indecisiveness. How do these stay-at-home moms like and raise their kids and find the time to make so many amazing things? Seriously, I need an answer. Or, maybe I need to stop comparing myself to other women and just be the best mom and wife I can be (while finishing my masters, teaching, staying at home and raising two boys).

Batman and Eli

I had to remind myself of this wonderful phase my boys are in right now. They are learning to play together so there is yelling and fighting, but there is also so much laughter, smiling and endless pretending. Eli is just amazed at all that Owen can do and Owen loves to "help Eli learn." Here are my boys...Batman and Eli (his big brother wears him out!)
