Guest Post- Janelle from Simplistic Beauty

I am very excited to introduce to you a beautiful, Godly, wife, mother and friend!
You are going to love her! 

Meet Janelle from Simplistic Beauty

Hi, Nat's Knapsack Readers, I am Janelle and I blog over at Simplistic Beauty. Natassia, is such a beautiful person inside and out. It is my pleasure to Guest post on her blog! 

Describe yourself in 3 words- Sweet, Over-analytical,Compassionate

Where do you live? Indiana

What made you start blogging?I wanted to have a "picture Journal" of my littles growing up. 

What is your favorite item you have purchased from another shop? The little bracelet from your shop. it is adorable, and so simple I can wear with everything!

 Be sure to check out Natassia's shop she really has some incrediably adorable jewlery! Oh, I didn't purchase this but, sweet Natassia made a necklace for me! I have literally worn it everyday since I recevied it! Isn't she sweet?!

What do you do to relax? I need to be better at relaxing! It's hard as a mom. I feel I need to get everything done. If you know what I mean. Dish, laundry,cleaning ect. When I do have the time I love to read, go on a walk, take a bath. I try to sneak in a nap when Levi is sleeping too! 

What makes you smile? Levi, He does this new thing when he is all done with his food he waves bye-bye to it. It makes me smile everytime. My husband cuddling with our Levi.

What is your guilty pleasure? thrift shopping. I don't always need things, I just find joy out of finding great deals. Seriously, who doesn't love a bargain find?

Any advice for moms out there? My advice comes from a personal place. Don't take yourselves too seriously. Enjoy every moment. Even the difficult ones. Before you know it you wish you could go back. With tears in my eyes, I told Brad I wish I could replay every moment in his life. I wish I could do it over again. I think as mom's we all have times like that. I would just encourage you to take in life, take in memories, savor the moments of everyday. Even the mondane ones!

Something we may not know about you-Growing up I always wanted to be a momma. People would ask me, "What do you want to be when you grow up"? I would say, be a momma. I know this desire came from a deep longing place in my heart. To have a momma of my own. I had a very abusive childhood and spent many years in the foster-care system. Yes, I do have a sweet momma of my own. She became my Momma at nine years old.

Favorite blogs-Nat's Napsack (Of course!) The Wiegand's, She Breathes Deeply, Call Me Blessed, Not So Pharoah Farrows, Carswell Canvas, Shine Project, La Luce, Gussy Sews, Meggan's Moments.
