You know how everyone says that you learn the most about yourself in your twenties? I figured since everyone else was saying it, it had to be true. So when I turned twenty, I was ready to have this epiphany where I became this incredible woman with strength and purpose. Yet, twenty came, it went, and I didn't feel any change. Thinking back on that now, I feel silly. My purpose was always there, I was just blindfolded to it. I would have these moments of clarity where I would think, "Oh surely this is what I was meant to do!" Then a few months later, I would feel lost once again and the self doubt would creep in. The voice of self doubt told me I wasn't enough, told me I couldn't do anything, and that I definitely couldn't make a di...

To you, my sweet son,

I remember when we found out we were having you. Our first baby, a boy! My heart was nervously pounding because not only was I anxious, but because for the first time you had an identity. All of a sudden we were researching boy names and trying to picture you taking your first steps. Even though you would still be inside me for several months to come, we were ready for our son. We were ready to start our lives with you. The days ahead were filled with excitement, fear, and worry that we wouldn't be enough, that we wouldn't know what to do. Little did I know that when you came bursting into the world and you were placed in my arms for the first time, everything else just perfectly aligned. 

Those first days were...

For those of you who have been around for a while, you know that Williams Party of Four was my first blog. I originally started it with my three sisters, who, you guessed it, share my maiden name of Williams. I loved the idea of sharing a space together but with us all living completely different lives it became more of a burden than fun. So when it came time to rebrand, for obvious reasons I could not continue with Williams Party of Four. (Sisters, if you are reading this, I STILL LOVE YOU!) 

When I was first dreaming up this website, I really wanted a name that I could not only brand but also grow into over the years to come. I loved the idea of Mrs. Ball because hello, that's my name, but as I was asking Nick what he thought, he...

I've been reflecting a lot lately about this past year, and boy has it really got me excited. All in one year, I had a baby, got married, and completely uprooted my life to move to Hawaii. Sounds crazy awesome, right? That would be an understatement. However, with that craziness brought so much pressure, overwhelm, and distraction. There have been so many days and times where I felt like I blinked and the day was over, I blinked and James hit another milestone, or I couldn't remember the last time I had an actual date with my husband. There were days where I felt like I just didn't measure up, couldn't do it all, and was ready to crack. That was until I realized that I needed to write down the list of things I actually wanted to do...

Thinking back on this now, as I sit in my pajamas on the couch, I laugh about this story. However, in the moment and the days that led up to this move, I was doing everything but laughing. Tears of joy for finally moving out of our hotel room, tears of sadness because we were leaving dear friends, and tears of frustration because you don't realize how much stuff you have until it comes time to pack it up. 

To start, I should say that this chaos was entirely my fault, because I waited until the week of our move to start packing up what was left of our stuff. Luckily, we shipped our big household goods so that wasn't a big deal, but the clothes and a million baby toys made for a completely different situation. We seriously ended up bu...
