    + i recently found the best baby/ toddler food blog.

    + this book was recommended to me by two different women [both married for over 30 years] on the same day, so i amazon primed it immediately. i am only a few chapters in and it has already changed the way i think about my role as a wife and what my marriage is supposed to be about. i have a feeling it will be life changing.

    + this is a perfect coat for the finicky texas fall/winter weather.

    + two things i religiously  add to my baby’s bottles. cod liver oil and a probiotic.

    + have you heard of zola wedding registry. it is genius and i really wish it had been around back in 2011 [why is it that 2011 sounds like eons ago?? weren’t the 90’s like 5 years ago?].

    + this mother of 4’s take on all of the horrendous things going on with planned parenthood. i found it so eloquent and powerful. definitely worth reading.

    + the prettiest dresses

    + happy weekend

    it is no secret that i love instagram for many reasons. one of my favorite things is being connected with other like minded mothers. these six mama’s are so inspirational, beautiful and talented. some i know firsthand and others are strangers. but we are all in the world of motherhood together and that is what i love about following them.

  3. How can I be a good blogger

    Morgan Hunt with boys

    i know i have said it before that “i am back!” and then quickly disappeared into the blogger gone rogue dark hole. after taking a lot of time to myself away from blogging while also winding down the clothing business, i have been left with a large creative void. i yearn to use my creative side all the time and i had a hard time bottling it all up while my outlets were slowly dwindling down.

    one main reason i took a step away from the blog was i constantly kept thinking, how can I even be a good blogger anymore? here are a few reasons why i think i cannot be a good blogger in this day and age…

    1. i cannot do it full time. stay at home mom. 2 kids. you get my drift.

    2. i do not have a husband who seemingly works solely for my blog and willingly learns how to become a professional photographer to take out of this world photos of yours truly.

    3. i cannot travel to the ends of the world and back to take pictures in exotic places.

    4. i hate having pictures of myself standing solo, faking laughing, while looking off to the right [my good side].  so darn awkward.

    5. i am lazy. sometimes i just want to not do anything at all other than play with my kids. walk around the block. lay on the couch. it may be a surprise to many, but blogging actually requires a lot of work, time, effort, funds, etc.

    so how can i be a good blogger? well, i know i can be if i want to. if i make time for it, it can be done. my husband is not the best at photographs [sorry case], maybe one day william will be. ha. so there may not be a plethora of gorgeous photos of myself, because let’s be real for a quick sec. i am rarely dressed in anything other than jean shorts and a white tank covered in baby food with my air dried hair up in a ratty bun. the epitome of blog worthy, am i right? there may not be beautiful backgrounds of me jet setting the world. there may not be fancy clothes and polished stilettos.

    but there may be, me. my photography. my thoughts. my writing. my kids. my travels. me. i love writing. i love taking photos of the things i find beautiful [hello william and john]. i love connecting with other ladies in this crazy bloggy blog world. so let us hope my glimmer of creativity is not dampened by anything or anyone. any doubt or any critique. i really love blogging. i just hope it loves me back.
