Hannah Johnson  Be prepared for a lot of baby, a lot of color and a lot of the central coast CA—preferably with a dose of humor and magic light.

We celebrated our little 1 year old's birthday today with family and friends. Thanks so much to everyone for partying with us at Lena's BABY RAVE. Thanks for being a part of "our village" as we've navigated this whole new world of parenting. We couldn't manage life too well without a little bit of help and grace—so thank you, thank you, thank you! #mylenavi #lenaturnsone #1stbabyrave #mylenavi #cakesmash #cakesmashshoot

How fun is this cake?!?! My ridiculously talented friend made the most fun and tasty baby birthday cake we could ever hope for 🎂! Thank you @brynhobson for spending your time and talents to bake it—Lena loves her uncle Bryn 💓#mylenavi #lenaturnsone #cakesmash #cakesmashshoot

Miss Lena Violet is ONE today and we couldn't love her more.
All I can say is, this baby loves life. Everything is THE MOST EXCITING THING EVER! She is constantly on the move, loves attention and getting people to smile. She'll squirm and squirm one moment and want to cuddle the next. She talks, sings and dances every chance she gets. She's standing on her own unassisted and claps for herself after she does so, haha. I've never had so much laughter in my life on a daily basis—she's a total goof. Pretty darn thankful for this baby girl. She's our sunshine ☀️ Happy Birthday Lena. #mylenavi #lenaturnsone

Our little love is 1 today! 😭 It's been the best, most challenging, and most fun year of my life so far. My heart got super-sized chock full of baby love and I'm just so incredibly thankful for her—she's our boom boom, sunshine, honey badger, Luna, miss Leena, baby bat, pterodactyl, toot n' scoot and little love. #mylenavi

Good thing I'm distracted planning a birthday party because the nostalgia is really hitting hard this week. She was so tiny 😭 I don't regret a single photo of the thousands I took of her this past year. #mylenavi

Ive been waiting to use these ears for almost a year now 😂 AND she actually kept them on all day. Also...she's going to be 1 in 4 days 😩😱Love these two ☺️#mylenavi

I think of my small and mighty, southern grandma every Easter because she would fervidly sing this hymn every Easter morning which then got passed down to my mother. I got the hymn texted to me this morning: "Lo in the grave he lay
Jesus my savior
Waiting the coming day
Jesus my Lord
UP from the grave He A-ROSE!
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes
He arose a victor of the dark brigade
And He lives forever
As His saints proclaim
He AROSE!! He AROSE!!
Hallelujah, Christ Arose!!!!
🎉🎉🎉"

Day 05/100:

A rising tide lifts all boats. I remind myself of this when others achieve success in their life as well as when I have my own success. An excerpt of a poem I read fits my thoughts:

Pull the Next One Up: "When you get to the top of the mountain

Pull the next one up

Then there will be two of you

Roped together at the waist

Tired and proud, knowing the mountain,

Knowing the human force it took

To bring both of you there. [...]" -Marc Kelly Smith

Hawaii made me want more plants. 🍃🌿🌴🌺🌱

Day 03/100:
Sometimes it's really fresh and sometimes it's the packet. Prepping food is one of those areas I can quickly feel guilty about if I don't do it. But...really thankful I have either option. Thankful I've always been able to afford to put food on the table and that my baby has never really known hunger for more than a few minutes. I don't have it all together, but I have more than enough. My guilt is a privilege. #The100DayProject #100DaysOfNotHavingItAll

Day 02/100:
We flew back home from vacation last night and this poor little one got sick on the plane, so safe to say it was a very long and difficult flight. We were THAT family with the screaming baby. How many times have I judged parents with screaming/crying children? Once is too many and I've done it more than that 😩 #100DaysOfNotHavingItAll looks like saying no to that extra job waiting for me in my inbox—it can wait, but that fountain of snot running down her face cannot. #the100dayproject

Day 01/100
I'm going to attempt to do #the100dayproject (yet again...I'm already behind) and try to at least get past day 20, haha. I don't have my project perfectly worked out in my head yet, but I just have to start somewhere otherwise it won't happen. My focus is #100daysofNotHavingItAll I have an almost one year old and before having a baby I was sold on the idea that you could have it all! You could have your babies, work full time, be the perfect wife, make homemade organic baby food, be the hardest working employee, find time for yourself, exercise to lose that baby weight and get back to that pre-baby body, make the money, be an amazing mom, have strong friendships, BE AMAZING AT EVERYTHING and the list goes on and on. Fast forward a year and I am over it.

This is a project to discover if having it all is a myth. I'm going to debunk it, redefine it and be vulnerable about what "Not Having It All" feels like in the day to day through photos. That's the idea anyways. Maybe I'll interview some other moms and maybe I'll do some research along the way and share thoughts from that. I don't know, but I do know it's something I need to grapple with.

Alright, I'm done. This is going to be hard because I don't like getting "real" on Instagram very often—LET ALONE EVERY DAY. Just remember there's an unfollow button for a reason 😆 I'm already regretting this.
