When it Rains...

Guys when it rains, sometimes it really does pour - not only has it been literally raining outside all day today, my life has been a bit inundated.  I decided it was time to do a coffee date vlog - so here you go - its a little on the bummer side, but if I'm being honest - this is where I am at in life right now!

I mentioned my friend Kristina (Big Apple Mami) in the video - and seriously she has been such an amazing friend and encouragement in my life.  I'm also really grateful for my good friend Meredith - another mama in my community who has really been there for me!  I'm humbled by the community family God has provided for us in New York!

Before I go spend the weekend trying to give my hands an extended rest - make sure you max out your entries in the Blog Anniversary / 31st Birthday giveaway!  Winners will be chosen tomorrow - and announced on Monday! <3

And can I get your vote once more on Top Baby Blogs?  I'd love to stay ranked in the top 10 in order to bring more fantastic opportunities your way! <3  Just click this link here and then the Owl on the left!

Hope you all have a great weekend! See you next week!

Linking up with Alissa today.


  1. I'm so sorry about your carpal tunnel...I got pregnancy induced carpal tunnel and it's been a month postpartum and it's gotten worse. I just started seeing a chiropractor bc my hands are necessary with a newborn. praying for healing.

    :( Oh , Courtney!! That really sucks...I had pregnancy induced carpel tunnel { I might have told you that already} but I feel for you...especially as a mama...we use our hands constantly and to have to feel pain the whole time, really really sucks. I am thinking of you and hoping you get some much needed rest this weekend...And maybe the sunshine will make an appearance for you...I know that always helps me, just to get out and get some fresh air! Hang in there lady, HUGS! :)

  3. Likewise Ruthy! It is an especially tough challenge when you have kids that you need to be able to hold! Hope your chiropractor helps!

  4. I remember you telling me that, it does really suck! You don't know how much you use your hands until you are forced to not use them. Its incredibly frustrating! Hope the sun does indeed shine this weekend! <3

  5. eek! So glad you've found support (both in "real" life & bloggy life) from Christina & others. Praying that you are healing from the inside out & will come full circle soon! Thanks for being honest & sharing your heart, Courtney.

  6. Thanks Jelli! I don't know what I'd do without the support of my church community and the friends I've made in blogging! <3

  7. I'm so sorry you've had a rough week friend! Praying for healing, peace and rest! love you!

  8. Thanks lady, so appreciate prayer!! XO

  9. Sorry to hear about your carpel tunnel - but I'm glad you have a lot of support to help you. Praying for you!

  10. I will be praying for you my dear! Pain is such a thief..... I'm glad I stopped by today through the coffee link up, I'm continually amazed at the caliber of women bloggers out there. Your site is lovely, the fact that you share your faith is admirable, and I truly enjoyed stoping by :)

  11. Courtney!! Prayers are said! And I totally just blew you kisses.
    You are so precious and I am so sad that you are having to deal with these crummy things.
    So glad you are clinging to Jesus. Keep leaning on him girl.

    Loved hearing you. =)
    You have a wonderful weekend! Xxo
