2/28/2017. We visited our sweet little zoo this afternoon and came home with a year pass! We left with muddy shoes and we may have ruined a pair of pink corduroys...But it was worth all the fun! She walked around that zoo for about 50 minutes. #day59#itsanewyear#welovethezoo
2/26/2017. Today was one of those days when I, as a momma, just wasn't enough. Not awake enough, not strong enough, not patient enough, not loving enough, not present enough. Some days, you just don't have it together and that was certainly me today. Praising God for grace that kept me together enough to get through this day even with my lack of everything above. "I am weak, but HE is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me." ❤️ #day57#itsanewyear
2/25/2017. Somehow Josephine convinced me that daddy needed this hedgehog for Valentine's day. I totally got played. Also, daddy broke her sleeping streak and tucked her into our bed tonight! #what#daddymisseshisgirl#day56#itsanewyear
2/24/2017. Someone has slept in her crib all night for the last 4 nights. We've all gotten more sleep and feel a bit more rested. But now we have to get extra snuggles in before bedtime! #day55#itsanewyear
2/22/2017. I love car rides with my daughter because I get to talk to Josephine about anything and everything and I believe that someday the topics we discuss will help her and provide comfort to her throughout life. Tonight, our topic was a hard one and it reduced me to tears. We had just left a family visitation and during her short life, my dad has lost two cousins. With Josie getting older, she now notices all the things. While we, alongside my folks were paying our respects, Josie was obviously confused at what she saw. Uh-oh, it's starting. So during our long ride home under the dark, starry night, I tried to explain both the mourning and celebration that occurs when a faithful person passes. That yes, a community of people will definitely feel the empty space that a passing leaves behind, but oh how glorious for that soul to celebrate at the feet of their Creator! I told her that nothing, nothing is as important than that moment one's soul leaves this place and is kneeling before God and looking back over their life and devotion. I imagine God asking why he should he allow me into the kingdom? I pray that at that time, I am able to say, because God, I have loved you, I have been faithful to you, I have worshipped you, I have shared you, I truly don't deserve this, but you made it so that I did, and I need you. I am a sinner, but have found comfort, abundant grace, and your presence in every moment and have sought your forgiveness time and time again. Please, oh mighty God, give me eternal life and let me dwell in your everlasting Kingdom.
Josephine has been incredibly blessed to have such a faithful family, both in her immediate circle and through distant family. My hope continues to be that her life is greatly enriched by them and that as she grows older, even when it hurts the most, she will not be afraid of death, but joyful in its new beginning of life everlasting. #day53#itsanewyear#hardtalks#nevertooearlytostart
2/21/2017. Bright sunshine, curly curls, sweaty, pink cheeks, lazy afternoon naps that have to be in momma's arms... These are the moments when the stresses of the decision to step back from the professional world, put my heart and mind at ease.
I have been s t r u g g l i n g with my own self worth and position in the world the past couple of weeks; frantically scrolling through "help wanted" ads and even considering applying for a full time HR position to replace the one I had. It's been HARD you guys. So hard. All my adult life I have struggled and fought and obsessively stressed out about what and who I want to be in this world. That's a lot on a person's shoulders, especially combined with infertility. But you guys, it's in these moments that God chooses to remind me and show me that THIS is who and what I was meant to be. Josephine's mom. And that, that is enough (and everything) to me. #day52#itsanewyear#areyoutheregoditsmemargaret#iamlistening

I find it pretty pathetic that people either stop working with me or decided not to work with me because of what someone thinks of me. People judge me because I don't give out my spots and decided to run their mouths, and block me. How about you find your OWN locations like I have. Put some work into finding a nice landscape, don't go around asking people, that's the whole fun in finding new locations. Why don't you grow the fuck up? It's one thing to run your mouth because you can't have it your way, but it's another when you try to ruin my reputation as a photographer. You are fucking with my money, with my job, my side hustle when I go to school. How is that OK? That's makes you a bad human being. Makes you childish. But it's good. Makes me stronger, makes me think twice who I'm going to work with. My circle is going to be smaller now. Best believe I'm going to still do me. But I wanted to put it out there. I'm beginning to hate Instagram, too much childish people, maybe moving to my work to a website 👌🏼 I don't care what you hear, I'm very professional, I don't play games, I'm about my models needs before my needs. Ask anyone I've worked with. Other than that have a blessed Monday!!! #rant#endrant#amen#dontplay#itsanewyear#smallcircle#getmines#fuckthebullshit
2016 was probably one of the worst years of my life. 2017 is trying to start off the same way, but I refuse. I refuse to let the devil steal another year from me and my kids. 2017 is going to be the year of change. Moving. Getting my body back. Cash starts school. I have so much to be thankful for and I know as long as I keep my head above water, I will be fine. I'm not going to lie, some days I feel like I'm going to drown. I don't know how I will survive. I miss my ex boyfriend. I miss he simplicity of life the way it used to be. But I have two healthy kids who are happy and thriving, even through all the hard times. I'm trying my best to make life as normal as possible for this. They didn't ask for this. They didn't ask for this pain, but it's the card we have been dealt and we learn to adjust. I am so thankful for my job. For the friends who are there, no matter how crazy I am. I love you guys. For my family. For life. Every day at work I see tragedy and every day I clock out and get to drive myself home to my healthy kids. So 2017, you can find someone else to target. Because I will not allow another year stolen from me and my kids. So here's to change, here's to a new year, and here's to a new me. Refocusing on the things that matter and preparing for the next card life deals us. But I am strong and I will not be defeated 💪🏻 #momlife#singlemom#gymlife#getmybodyback#single#itsanewyear#onestepatatime#iCANdothis
2/17/2017. There are 3 things in this photo that don't surprise me: 1) She is sitting on a pile of books. 2) She is wearing her Halloween costume, she insisted and this is not the first time this week. 3) She kept trying to wear the book basket as a hat. She is absolutely our daughter. 💗💗💗 #day48#itsanewyear
