- Don't know if #shoutoutsaturday is a thing but it is today.
First, is @fur.n.feathers.farm. They say behind every man is a strong woman and that ain't no joke. She'd out work most men I know! Last year she worked right next to me building this barn for all our (her) birds. And for her birthday I wanted to get her something to top it off.
That brings in Logan @noblebuilds, I reached out to him to see if he could cut me a sign. He helped my technologically dumb self come up with the design and made some great suggestions. The final product, as you can see, turned out awesome! .
Can't wait until we get the barn painted to really top it off!
- You’re allowed to have bad days where it feels like nothing is going right. On those days find your own moment that made you happy. Could be something as small as a new notebook!
What is something that has been the highlight of your day so far?✨
- Today’s mama story comes from one dear friend & mama who experienced the unexpected after her baby was born & the hope that her family is finding amidst it all. •
“When Malia was about 3 weeks old, I noticed that one of her cheeks was chubbier than the other. We didn’t think much of it, but soon we found a small lump under her ear. A couple evaluations later- a specialist confirmed that our daughter has a growing tumor on the left side of her face. He is confident (95% sure) the tumor is benign, but wants to monitor the growth to continue to make sure it’s non-cancerous. At less than 12 twelve pounds, there’s not much we can do for her other than wait and the specialist believes it may go away on its own.
Shocked, confused, upset... yeah, my first time through motherhood has been an emotional rollercoaster. Honestly, I’ve never doubted God’s goodness more. It’s been a constant struggle. All I want to do sometimes is go into my room and never come out, but I can’t do that. I am her mama. Right now, my reality is waking up every day and choosing to thank God for the beautiful little girl He’s given Russ and I. It’s reminding myself that His plans for her life are better than anything I could hope for. It’s knowing that even though I am scared I can trust that my God is ALWAYS GOOD.
And He will always be good.
Please keep our baby and her doctors in your prayers. My girl is 2 months old tomorrow ❤️”

- We see all sorts of theories about skin care ingredients, what's bad, what's good! We talk about skin absorption and everything skin, but how all this theories are relevant is always questionable! Parabens, fragrance, essential oils, we hear a lot about!
Exploration of other common ingredients used in cosmetics that pose a serious concern is needed. This is especially relevant where the effects of biotransformation and bioaccumulation are concerned. The National Toxicology Program, an interagency program under the U.S. Department of Human Health and Services, released a report in 2012(235 pages) on the effects of two forms of vitamin A, retinoic acid and retinyl palmitate, in the presence of sunlight. The study suggested that when exposed to sunlight, vitamin A may increase the development of skin tumors and legions. The trouble with this is that vitamin A is found in approximately 15 percent of sunscreens and moisturizers with SPF. This may seem like a low figure until the following statement is considered. It may take no more than nine minutes of daily sun exposure over the course of a year while using topical products containing vitamin A to accelerate the development of skin tumors. This is, of course, based on animal data, but the point is to illustrate the fact that only recently have researchers begun to understand that external factors, such as the sun, may change how a substance transforms biologically. The key to take away is that many studies are still being conducted to fully understand how biotransformation occurs between molecules and enzymes.
Cosmetic companies indeed don't tell us all and it's up to us to become more knowledgeable about formulations and what we put on our skin!
- Less than 4 hours of sleep and my hyperactive mind is up again! Now organizing some stuff to make room for others. Gold! 🥰
I dunno what's up with you today but here's something to get you through the day... Happy Saturday! ❤ "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah."
God bless you! 😍
