“JUST a Stay at Home Mom”

It’s been one of those days. And I feel a little ridiculous for even saying that because I’m sure I’ve had harder days as a mom. But for some reason today hit me hard. I cried probably just as much as Payton did, and I didn’t get one single thing done on my to do […]

Enjoy The Beauty
