Humbled

Nothing is more humbling than having a baby. Connor is 3 weeks old today and in the short time, I can't believe how much I have changed; how humbled I am.

On any given day, you can find me wearing pajamas bottoms and a comfy shirt or sweatshirt. My hair is typically in a bun that's seen better days and there isn't a stitch of makeup on my face. 3 weeks ago, you would have found me with my hair and makeup done and I would have been dressed so that if we had company or left the house, I would look like a respectable 30 year old.

Speaking of 30, I turned 30 on November 1. Which 3 days before freaked me the hell out. But then I gave birth to this little piece of Heaven. This boy that I love more than I ever thought possible and the fact that I turned 30 was glazed over. As for being 30, I love it. I am exactly where I wanted be at by 30 - married to the man of my dreams, raising our amazing son and surrounded by the best friends and family.

The little things used to matter. Going out, shopping, spending time being busy, blogging and looking my best 24/7. However, all those little things have been forgotten. I have learned the most valuable lesson in the last 3 weeks. I've learned that no matter what is cool, popular or acceptable, my world doesn't revolve around those "important" things. My life revolves around my husband, son, family and friends. Those are the important things in my life.

I've learned so much about myself. I'm humbled. I'm happy. I couldn't ask for a better life.
