“You do not have to carry the burden of everything. There is a lot that is out of your control and there is endless peace that reminds you it is okay to take this day by day, for even though you cannot see it, new things are blooming while you wait.” 🌓

It’s slow progress, but quitting won’t make it any faster 💦 .
My tummy has ALWAYS been my trouble area. I think the last time I was comfortable with my stomach was senior year of high school, and even then it was only due to a unhealthy time in my life. It’s always been a battle because I LOVE food. I have no trouble eating healthy, whole foods and enjoying it. My trouble is stopping after one splurge brownie, or one slice of bread 😅 Moderation for sweets and carbs goes out the window! I always feel self conscious at the beach, or in the gym when wearing tight clothes, but I’m finally fully absorbing the whole ‘life is too short’ and doing whatever the heck I want. You don’t grow when you stay in your comfort zone anyways (:
So here is to enjoying splurges, wearing cute clothes, and using my working body to sweat a lot... enjoying life to the fullest. In 70 years I won’t remember what the scale said at this exact moment, or if I had extra tummy on the beach 25,550 days ago. I may not be where I want to be, but I’ll enjoy the ride 🚴🏽♂️🖤
We went to @magpie_cafe ( best organic food 😋), then prayed for an 8 year old with asthma; he RAN then shared “ I am healed” with a little smile. @thebanning brought a great message on God power showing up in our weakness ... it was on point. All in all GREAT day! #untamedJesus#happyheart

so last night my friends and all the kiddos surprised me with a party and I can’t even express how happy it made me and how much love I felt.
most people know I’ve been suspicious of a “surprise party” for a few years now, only to be wrong on more then one occasion 🙈
this was perfect. It was everything I wanted. Filled with my favourite people, food and the sounds of our babes laughing and playing.
I hit the friend jackpot and count my lucky stars for my circle of people. @jennaveronicav, you sure know to make a girl feel special and I hope you know how much this meant to me.
A wee @Ikea uk lunch stop after swimming this morning - We love bank holiday weekends! 🙌🏼
• Boys, what I wouldn’t give to bottle up your giggles so I could release them anytime my heart also needs to laugh out loud!!💙
You are the Author of YOUR Life!!! .
The momma on the right used to constantly worry about what others thought of her, and was a major people pleaser. She wanted so badly to make everyone else happy and she put her self on the back burner for years. Top being a people pleaser and perfectionist off with anxiety and depression. I was a mess!!! No lie, a beautiful mess with a capital M!!
What changed? I wanted a change, I wanted to feel better and not so alone. So I decided to make me a priority and become the author of my life! .
No more people pleasing. No more caring if I tick some people off 💁♀️...sorry, but not really. This is about my life not theirs. My new found mentality, you are with me, and I will help you along this amazing self fulfilling journey, or I can love you from a distance. No more feeling bad about my choices, we have to let go to move forward. And friends, not everyone is good for you!! If you haven’t found this out yet, eventually you will. .
Now, let me set the record straight as well, this didn’t happen over night, it has been a many years journey, but this last year I rocked it up x 10!!! My mission, to live my best possible life. Get healthy and feel good! To be present in life not just existing through it. I have been low, very low, and my motivation is...”I am not going back 🙌!!!” Happy Sunday evening friends!!! Go live your best life possible 💕!! And if your ready to accept my challenge let’s chat!
I’ve figured out the secret to life, and it’s the little things. The Spirit filled Sunday mornings. The oil in the diffuser. The words in the book. The coffee in the cup. The flowers in the corner. The happy folk on the playlist. The energy in the yoga. The leaves on the trees. The corn in the field. The extra long hugs. The flicker of the candle. The grab of the perfect butt. The amazing opportunity to wake up and live another day.
The thing about the little things, is that no matter what circumstance you could possibly be in, you ALWAYS have them. Save maybe the perfect butt grab, but a blind dog finds a bone every once in a while 😜 (but really @j_palmer_5 has the absolute best butt). So now you have the secret to life. Take time to appreciate the little things. Today, and every day to come. Tell me below what you’re most grateful for today. 🖤
& if you need help with all the little things, check out the link in my bio - I’ve got your back and you can even be a part of a world changing movement while you’re at it. 🤘🏻
You’re already the coolest kid I’ve ever met + I swear, I aspire to be more Frankie-like every day. He’s sweet, smart, and so full of life! .
What’s something you admire about your kids?!

An endless love for the SIMPLE things 🖤⠀
Like a low key Sunday, no commitments or plans. ⠀
This amazingly comfy dress.⠀
Walking barefoot in the grass.⠀
Picking garden vegetables from the backyard. ⠀
Feeling the warm sun on my face with the gentle breeze in my air. ⠀
Being HOME, doing absolutely nothing with my boys, fills my heart to the brim #homebodyalways ⠀
Who else has a love for slow, peaceful days at home?!
Mondays ~ nothing your favourite lipstick can’t fix!!
Splash Liquid Matte lipsticks are the win for lasting colour without drying your lips ... this highly pigmented shade is called SIZZLING 😉 isn’t is gorgeous !!?

I was just at the grocery store and an older man asked me for help. His wife had given him a shopping list and he couldn't read her handwriting. I said "that says Dark Chocolate Milanos - she's got good taste!" We went our separate ways. Later, as I walked to my car, he approached me. He gave these to me and said "I've been looking all over for you. Thanks for your help." ❤
Sweet friendships refresh the soul.
I was able to talk to 2 friends on the phone today and texted with several others. There is something about connecting, talking, and laughing that makes me feel so good!
Friendships are so valuable to a healthy soul. I’m ready to take on the week....thanks friends!❤️
