Mom crush Monday is back! I took a short little break to focus on more personal posts but missed connecting with fellow mom bloggers. I first discovered Bethany from Lilacs and Waves on Instagram. I fell in love with her bright and clean photos. The same bright and fun feel transfers right over to her blog. I found myself browsing and relating to her Raw Motherhood Essay series. She has so many wonderful things to share about motherhood, life and travel.
Tell me about yourself & your blog...
I'm Bethany, wife to my best friend and mama to two littles, 3 years old and 10 months old. I write about motherhood, marriage, travel and share some of our favorite family recipes.

What is the best piece of parenting/mothering advice you have received?
"There is room in parenting for error." I think i always feel like the second I make a mistake I'm ruining my children. But the fact that God created our children to be so resilient knowing that they have imperfect parents is such a comforting and humbling reminder to just keep trying!
Funniest thing your kids have ever done?
My son recently decided to make a path around our whole house with the paper towels he climbed up to get from our counter while I was upstairs tending to the baby.
What is the most challenging part of motherhood?
"Finding time for myself and not losing it before I get there :D"
Top 3 mom must haves:

Best part of Waves and Lilacs...
I love to write, so while I try to include the typical "how to's" and guides, I also write and share motherhood and marriage essays. I have a series entitled, "My raw motherhood essays" where I just write from the heart and hope to encourage other mamas on this blessed journey!
