We used to think we had to be all light. Smiles and optimism 24/7. But God has been showing us there is merit, beauty, and strength in the darkness.

We struggle to enjoy our babies, to leave work ‘at work’, and rest in knowing that some things can wait. Friends, if you struggle with the entrepreneurial hussle know you are not alone! We feel all the feels too. In those times of frustration, God has consistently been reminding us how blessed we are to have this life. To have the flexibility to make our own schedule. To get to be as present in the lives of our children as we are (even if that means screen time). To have a job, something that proves challenging but that we love doing so much. So thankful to be learning to embrace the beauty of this struggle! #AndrewandTiannaBTS #marriageandmotherhood #wordpress
