  1. Beautiful post Aprille and can relate to it being hard during the toddler years for even the best of marriages. My husband and I have our moments, too at times. Faith and hope are huge in helping though and agree with you on that.

    What a beautiful, honest post!! I loved your photos and your message!! My husband and I don’t have to struggle with deployments, but we do have two little girls, and it is hard to keep our marriage all alive and sparkly. BUT, we wouldn’t trade those two girlies for anything, and we try to keep the Lord in the center of our family and our marriage, so through Christ we can do anything! 🙂 “Because we believe in God, in our love, and in each other, there is always hope.” ~ Exactly, love this! 🙂 Stopping by from the Friday Favorite Things link-up, have a blessed and beautiful day!!

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving the encouragement that I’m not alone. It’s been another difficult morning and I’m just still trying to believe this all. There is always hope.

  3. OH, your words echo my own thoughts. Especially knowing that the nursery will only stay clean for two minutes. 🙂
    So nice to find a fellow seeker who is looking for beauty and grace in these messy years.
    Blessings to you and yours!

  4. I was just making some ornaments like that tonight! Yours look way better. I have two under 4, so we’ve got the mess at my house too. Messes stem from blessings!

    • The first few I did turned out horrible. It takes a lot of patience and a few of them I added more paint after drying, letting them set in different positions for long periods of time really helps.
