  • As a mom we are so used to giving giving giving, that we forget to do things for ourselves sometimes. So, this is me reminding you, do something for yourself today! Curl your hair, put makeup on even if you’re going nowhere, go for that run, ride that bike, call a friend to catch up, listen to that podcast...it is OK!!! 🖤🖤

  • Sometimes I forget he’s only a toddler.

He tells me he wants to build a house for homeless people when he grows up.

He also wants to be 🕷 Spider-Man.

He chats with me and tells me stories in a way that’s far beyond his four years,

He also still colors on furniture and takes our pots and pans out to play like drums.

He climbs the highest rocks, and always takes risks, but holds my hand in a big crowd or somewhere new.

He’s right between a toddler and a big kid.
Still four, but almost five.

We started measuring back to back to see if he’s taller than me yet, and as he stands stretching out because he’s “almost there!” I can imagine the day when he will be. 💙

  • First cherries 🍒 they remind me as a kid I sat with my best friend in a unattended cherry tree in a local church yard for hours and hours chatting. We ate cherries until we had the worst stomach ache and had been bitten by thousands of ants 🐜 who clearly did not want to share them. It’s always the simple things that make the most lasting memories ❤️ and every year with the first cherries, I miss my friend, these long chats and the taste of those particular cherries 🍒

  • I was just watching a few stories from some insta mommas I follow and wow, did God use it. ⁣
⁣
I had a rough morning. I was doing alright until I started eating breakfast, and I’m not sure if it’s because of the jaw movement without my orthotic in, but I just started feeling rough. My husband encouraged me, and I pressed on. I did a power hour with some girls on my team, then took the kids out to the local museum and to the town square for some ice cream and then came home. I still wasn’t feeling good. I felt as if this thing, this medical stuff is just stealing my joy. ⁣
⁣
We had lunch and did some things around the house and sat down to rest. I was watching a story of another pastors wife momma who was kinda going through the same thing. She made herself stop and realize it wasn’t all about her. It wasn’t all about her doing a thousand things that mattered. That it’s ok to stop. Cry. Talk to your husband. Reach out to some friends and ask for prayer. And most importantly, to pray. ⁣
⁣
If you’re struggling today, you’re not alone! Call a friend, reach out to someone, and give it to God!

  • Best decision I made all day?  Putting my kids outside before 8am.  It was just the reset we needed (yes, we already needed a reset at 7:30 🤪lol)  It always seems easier to plop them in front of the TV when I haven’t had my coffee yet and am struggling to parent (you know what I mean??). Things can escalate quickly when I’m tired because I don’t want to deal with all the drama that my little angels bring so early in the morning.  Love them so much. ❤️❤️❤️

So listen, I feel you mamas - you who was at your wits-end by 7:30 in the morning and can’t see how you will make it through the day.  I’m there most days and I’m trying to figure out ways to enjoy motherhood a little more before they grow up too much.  Just know you aren’t alone and it’s okay to be overwhelmed by motherhood.  It’s also okay to kick your kids outside (if they’re old enough! ✌️👋) so you can drink a hot cup of coffee, mmmkay?

  • Late post on the boys’ first school field trip! So awesome to observe their different personalities ☺️ — Ethan is def more thrill-seeking + rode just about every ride - his fav were the cars + got on that thing 3 times lol
.
Mr. Jadon was more reserved, cautious + not happy at all —overwhelmed by the noise at first ...mama made sure they got a good breakfast before the trip —yet still, he was apparently hangry—he decided he liked the rides after he got some food in his belly though ... all was well + unicorns afterwards😂!

  • Yesterday was joyful. I got to see my late friend Rachel’s children. Her daughter Stella is going into Kindergarten this fall. She can read and write 😍 The first picture is magic. The second picture is HOPE. The bottom right picture is a princess with a crown. The top picture is my fairy godmother. We decided my fairy godmother needed high heels. Like platform, get stuff done, @ladygaga platform performance high heels. So she added in yellow high heels. 😍 She And Rordan have that artistic, creative gene from both their parents. They are doing great. I’m so proud of both of those kids. So grateful they are in my life. I had lunch with them and their amazing Aunt Julienne. We got text results back from the vet. Dodger is going to be okay!! He’s responding well to his antibiotics from the virus. And we confirmed my suspicions about him being hypo thyroid, so he starts medication today! No cancer!!! I look forward to him dropping weight and living a better quality of life. Mom and I got haircuts with Amber from @aac__beauty Love to support up and coming young people who have a vision and big dreams. In 10 years, she’ll be the BEST special effects makeup artist in the industry! And, I lost enough weight to wear jeans. I actually put on real big girl clothes yesterday. Lots of joy yesterday. Lots of hope. Lots of love. Lots of #onpurpose #inmotion #lifeminutes #authenticity #love #lovelifts #thesearethemoments #intentionalliving #hope

  • I don’t usually post many family session images to Instagram, but I need to start sharing more with you on here. These kiddos make my heart so darn happy. Every time they come back, they’ve grown and changed even more and are so excited to see me. I truly hope they know how loved they are, just the same as they make me feel🧡

Happy Friday, IG Fam☺️

  • Liv, the girl that wants to do it all. When I ask her what she wants to do next year for activities she responds with a never ending list. She wants to do ballet, tap, jazz, acro, skating, gymnastics and swimming. She really would do it all if she could. She is one of the most determined humans I have ever met and when she loves something she gives it her all. I look forward to always being her biggest cheerleader in life. Now to narrow down that list. 😊

  • All I wanted for Mother’s Day was my babies, my man, the beach + to fit into my bathing suit. 🤪 
It was such a special day, full of the simplest moments, just the way I like it. 
And for good measure - we had our share of tantrums, unrelenting baby cries ALL the way home + I had to remind everyone it was Mother’s Day. //
