gparrish Last summer I was in the best shape of my life. I was eating right, working out + was stronger than I'd ever been.
But something was off. Really off. My insides were not working, my heart broken. Every fiber of my being ached for another child. I had been doing my best to take care of my body, why was it failing to get pregnant month after month? The harder I worked, the harder I fell. The unexplained infertility kept me up at night. I screamed into my pillow, cried myself to sleep. I longed for answers, no one had them. I closed off to the world. My cycle was regular. I was going to church, saying prayers + trying my darnedest to be the best mother + wife I could be. Things just didn't add up. The more I told myself to believe it would all work out, the more I questioned what I believed. I didn't love my body. I felt guilty for not being more grateful, but this body had let me down. Let our family down. Jon down. Our sweet sons who still pray each night for a little sister down. The word that consumed me during my darkest days: BROKEN. I truly led myself to believe that I was broken.

Fast forward to today, rounding the 20 week mark of our third pregnancy, where I've teamed with @thesmallseed on a collaborative challenge to stop negative thoughts about ourselves. I believe if we dig deeper + channel our efforts into developing the eyes to see what God sees in us, we'll discover a pretty clear view of how loved we truly are. I don't know about you, but I need this #CHOOSINGTOLOVEMYSELF challenge. I love the "choosing" theme because it's more clear than it has ever been to me, loving myself is MY choice. One that's easier said than done. But I am choosing to love my "out of shape" pregnant body (which is currently showing more in my hips than on my belly) because my beauty isn't defined by looks. And neither is yours. I'm not choosing to love myself because I'm finally pregnant, but because I'm made exactly as I was supposed to be made. God didn't mess up on any of us!! What do you say we do this challenge together? Head to @thesmallseed to download a kit + lets do daily challenges as a team. I am praying it will make a difference in my life + in yours, too.

gparrish Serving Star Wars pancake orders to my star-of-the week this morning with a hunch that that green little star isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Good thing he accepted my red light saber pancake because I couldn't seem to BS my way through a Darth Vader no matter how hard I tried. 🙃 7d

gparrish "Maybe later" was what I realllly wanted to say when Jonah asked if we could catch snowflakes in the Target parking lot this morning. I mean, it's not really his fault I didn't wear a bigger coat 🙄 Feeling glad I obliged because so far it's ended up being my favorite 15 minutes of our day, we still got to school with plenty of time + his teacher just told me that he believes he got chosen for star-of-the-week because he caught the most magical snowflake in the "Uniberse". He was so sure of it! 1w

gparrish Happy February 1st! That leaves us with twenty-eight more days to get the spelling right the first time.
My color obsessed heart is wallowing in friend pride over @elsielarson new photo editing app @acolorstory!! An app that freshens whites + keeps them WHITE while still brightening all the colors?! 🏻 'bout time! Have you tried it out? I edited this photo with Bright (toned down to about 77%) in the Organic Filter pack. Would love to hear your thoughts or go-to photo editing apps/filters if you're brave enough to share! #acolorstory #colorweek

gparrish A simple thank you goes a particularly long way after Church on Sunday --- so the text that I received from my honey with this photo today made my eyes water. Kind of really a lot! Motherhood is not for the faint of heart. It often chews me up + spits me out, leaving me in a tired puddle of defeat by the end of the day. But somehow, somewhere, during those very same heart-stretching moments, it fills my life with a pure joy I find tricky to explain with words. Feeling extra grateful for my people tonight. AND for Sunday naps! Always Sunday naps. 2w

gparrish You took me to dinner after Jon broke my heart "for good" back in the day + have lent me your shoulder many times since. You still come to babysit even if we're an hour later than we are supposed to be every single time + your book recommendations could never be topped. I've never seen you so happy in my life --- YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED @morganmparrish!! Love you forever, sweet sister of mine. My heart is exploding for you! 2w
