If I were to be completely honest, I am struggling at the moment.  Judah turns 4 on Sunday, Ava is talking to me about sports bra’s and Savannah’s been singing in a falsetto that would make you faint. My kids are growing up and I can’t stop it.  Ben and I have looked at each other more times than we can count this week alone, and have said  “Oh my gosh, they are so huge!!”  So is life.  I remember when they were newborns and old ladies would say to me “Enjoy it!! It goes by fast!!” And I just wanted to say, “Listen lady, I just want to sleep!” Now I’m approaching my mid 30’s and I just want to pause time.  My phrase for this season is ‘Take it all in.’  Last weekend Ben was home, I was home, no one had to work and we just spent the entire weekend together as a family.  We explored our city, drank latte’s and ate yummy food.  It was dreamy.

Ok, enough of me being a total sap mom.  Earlier this week our Skechers arrived at the doorstep and the kids went crazy! To try to explain to the them that they couldn’t wear them until we took pictures wearing them, was extremely difficult! We have all been living in these shoes since they arrived.  I love that the kids can play in them at the park, yet look super stylish and cute for school or a family outing.  Ben and I are so in love with our retro styled Skechers.  They are comfortable and practical which is so key while running around throughout the day.  I remember being in middle school and being extra jealous of my friends that had their super cool Skechers that I couldn’t afford on my 25.00 a week pay check from my paper route! lol But here I am today, rocking my retro’s and feeling pretty great about life… the nostalgia.  Sarah Schweyer Photography captured these sweet photos of my family.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!  Happy Weekend friends!! Much love,

Ruthie xo

    I love Sketcher shoes. I bought a new pair to take with me to California and that is all I ended up wearing while we were out walking and walking and walking.
