life as a mom

free time.

Sometimes as a mom you just need to get out. Alone. By yourself. The amount of personal time and space I have is slim to none. Or as I labeled in this picture, negative. One girl sitting on top of me, the other flying high on top of my feel in “airplane mode”.

Girls smiling, be as close to mommy as possible. One sitting on top of me, the other doing an airplane on my feet. #negativepersonalspace

Yep, there are times when the space to needs to be more than a few inches. Space to think, write, do, just be me. It clears my head, energizes me, makes me a better momma.

Today I am 2 miles down the road at Starbucks with my laptop, headphones in listening to something other than Justin Bieber, with notepad of lists of all sorts and my fave new sharpie pen. I’m going to work here friends. Two hours. All I need. Just some time. Some space. To just be.

What do you when you have some time and space?

Sidenote: I also shared an older post from last month on my friend Kristi’s blog, Always Alleluia. Check it out and the others who linked up. Good reading ahead!

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.


  1. Wish I was with ya, sister! Closest Starbucks is about 45 minutes away 😉 Going to work on finding more time for mom. May He bless your quiet today!

  2. say what?!? 45 min away! Oh girl, I’m sorry. I don’t have it all that often but just know it is here if I need/want it makes me feel at ease. :) I wish you were here with me too! Can’t wait till we soak up every minute at Allume! Now go get yourself some “me” time. It’s important!
