When my third baby was born at the start of the year, my whole system for homemaking was completely thrown into a wrench. Trying to balance life, a home, blogging and writing with my family which includes an amazingly supportive husband, a 4 year old, 2 year old and the newborn, completely threw me off my game.
I gave myself grace those first few month of newborn baby bliss and just did the bare minimum and accepted help whenever it was offered but as my baby started to grow and sleep a tad bit more consistently, I realized I needed to start getting back to my philosophy of intentional homemaking.
With three little ones I knew that I wouldn’t be able to go back to my old routines, I would need to create new grace-based ones. As I was thinking through how I wanted to structure my days, I read somewhere about transforming your mindset from routines to daily rituals — things that you do naturally to make up your day.
As much as I like routines, rituals appeals to me in this season of life.
They feel more simple and graceful, so I started to carve out my days based on a few rituals that I practiced every day.
