Pregnancy after miscarriage is such limbo, especially at Christmas. You’re not confident this pregnancy will be the one. You’re not confident any pregnancy will ever be the one. I wrote this letter to my former self. If I could've read it 2 years ago, it'd have helped me understand so many of the mixed emotions I felt that holiday. I hope it will help make sense of what many of you are feeling now.

Do you think someone watches me during yoga!? 😂 . I love the stage she’s at right now and it’s going to be SO much fun when she’s old enough to join in on our workouts. And of course I can never catch her pulling off this cuteness when she’s fully dressed. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ . Do your littles imitate you?? What do they like to do?!

What are your passions? 🧡 For a long time after babies I had been swallowed up in motherhood. . Picking up a camera saved me. ⠀⠀ It was liking finding myself again. I can’t explain the way I feel when I get behind a camera. I even started a portrait business even though I am an extreme introvert. . When I stopped taking clients after I had my 3rd baby I was terrified of not having an outlet anymore. Until I quickly realized, I have 3 beautiful children and all the world is my subject. . Have you found your passion in life? I would love to know what drives you. . . . . . #nikonislife #findyourpassionandliveit #lifeofaphotographer #motherhoodjourney #liveintentionally #findbeautyeverywhere #liveafulllife #whatisyourpassion #nikonworld_ #nothingisordinary #strugglesintostrengths

Do you feel like at Christmas sometimes focus is wrong? . Feelings of loneliness, exhaustion, and fear for the future? Why at family gathering do we have to dig into our own ways of viewing the world. Do you wish with me that we could focus on the connection we have a humans? . . Christmas is a time to come together. To put aside the things we can’t agree on and love. For me that means to remember perfect Love come down. . . Christmas is rooted in One who left everything He had. One who became present with those who needed Him most. To bring a promise of peace to a world that hates. Joy to the sorrows we live with daily. A promise of perfect love to cast out fear. One day I have hope for unity to replace a world divided. . . My hope is that this focus allows me to be truly present. Give a hug, love up-close those people who need me most. Even if I don’t always agree, to be the light.

Mamas need loving too! ❤️ ⠀ Postpartum Depression is so tricky you guys and most of the time it sneaks up on you. You don’t notice it right away and most of the time mothers find themselves questioning how they are feeling and why. Wondering if it’s normal to feel a certain way... nervous, exhausted, overwhelmed, alone. ⠀ Some women don’t realize they are going through it and others are scared to admit it because of what people might think. Because of what people might think???? UMMM EXCUSE ME, but we just got done cooking a tiny human being inside our amazing bodies. You know, making eyes , kidneys, fingers, toes... to name a few! 🤰🏼🤰🏻🤰🏽🤰🏾🤰🏿 ⠀ AND YES, we also managed to get this tiny human out into the world by birthing him/her. So no, we are not ok. And no, we do not care what anyone thinks. We, just like our babies, were just born. A new stage in our lives: motherhood. We are not the same anymore and it might take time, but you will make it, mama. So take your time and worry about you and your baby. Forget about what anyone else might think. 🙅🏼‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏾‍♀️🙅🏿‍♀️ ⠀ PPD is no baby blues. No matter how cute they try to make something so serious sound, it is not. If you feel like you or someone you know might be dealing with PPD do not wait to talk about it. Learn the warning signs and keep an eye out for yourself and for other Mamas. If we don’t take care of each other, who will? If we don’t come together and acknowledge how serious Postpartum Depression can affect someone, we will never truly understand it. #postpartumdepression #postpartumbody #stopcensoringmotherhood #weneedtotalk . . . . . . . . . . . . . #momofagirl #newmum #mummyblogger #babygirl #momlife #mother #newborn #newmom #mybaby #motheranddaughter #momblogger #motherdaughter #motherhoodjourney #motherhoodrising #ticklesnandcuddles

Raise your hand if this season means exponentially more chaos than the normal amount. 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ If you’re like this #ChaoticCommuter , you’ve likely already maxed out on gifts for the entire school and postage for this year’s holiday card (crying kids in matching plaid outfits is cute and candid, right?). . . Here’s to the most “wonderful” time of the year! 😅🍷 Full story in our bio link!

NEVER MISS A MONDAY! I’m prepping for an awesome reset for you! I’d love to get you in on it with me! It’s all about INVESTING IN OUR HEALTH. How about doing that now instead of investing in tons of Dr’s visits in the future when we’re not as….”SPRY”? :) Send me a heart if you’re curious! . And since its the beginning of the week: isn’t it awesome that we have Mondays? Seriously. Think about it. . It’s a natural reset that we get every seven days. No matter what the last 7 looked like, we can restart! That is such a GIFT! We get a chance to think about our priorities, our time management, our quality time, our work, our rest, our family, self-care, adulting! . What kind of reset do you need for your week? Yes, it is the beginning of the end for our Holiday Season…but why wait!? .

We took Sawyer to see Santa and while he refused to smile he was also in zero hurry to get off his lap 😂 The photographer was done and he was just content to hang out with Santa. Haha such a sweet boy🥰❤️

So glad for technology and amazing drs, just left after having the worst back pain I have ever experienced. Wanted to make sure baby was OK, definitely need to make sure when we travel now to get out and stretch out! Baby is doing wonderful and mama is at home resting, so thankful it was nothing more than a strained achey body!

I don’t really believe in magic. . Well, I truly do, but I think that the term “magic” has been used and over used and misused in the new age spiritual movement. (Similar feels to the word “intuition” ...scroll back a few posts to me in my red cap to see what I’m talking about.) . Magic to me is realizing our life is short and we can entire dwell in suffering or get the tools to move forward and rise above. . Check the link in my profile @rosecandela for a traditional practice of the medicine wheel lead by Asha Frost, Healing Rainbow Medicine Woman. There’s definitely magic in her teachings. . Do you believe in magic?

Toddlers are just amazing at doing what they want, and what they want generally doesn’t involve sitting still for a photo just because you told them to do so. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ So we tried to had an indoor christmas photoshoot thinking it would be easier but i guess posing is just not her thing🤣🤣🤷🏼‍♀️ #parenthood @preview.app

I’ve decided to do a “7 Days of Christmas” post series sharing gifts the Lord has given me over the past year. . . . Day 1: FRIENDSHIP . . . A year ago, right after New Year’s, Brett and I decided to see what the Lord had for us at Union Hill Baptist Church in Brownsboro, TX. The journey getting there was bumpy and intricate, but once we got there, it was home. Upon arrival, I received two of the best friends a girl could have. It is a joy to walk through ministry, motherhood, wife-life, and our journey as believers together. You both are an answer to many prayers. AND their husbands friendships with @brett_gilpatrick has been such a bonus. This is what community looks like and I am forever grateful. 💛

Got my workout in, back home and in my cozy PJ's again not planning to go ANYWHERE today because TODAY IS THIS SWEETIE'S 6th BIRTHDAY!!! Celebrating his birth and remembering how healing his presence was for each member of this family. We love our rainbow baby, Bowen Shepherd.

Hi. Guess what? I kinda hate this photo. It makes me feel vulnerable. But it is so very me, which is why I’m sharing it. What you can’t tell here is how obnoxious my laughter is. But it’s genuine. I have so much to smile about. But I have my struggles. I’m constantly trying to find a balance between being out there to offer whatever I can to those listening, being transparent, all while hating seeing myself on camera. Which is so stupid. So here I am. I’m not your typical modern Instagram woman. I’m overweight. I sometimes say bad words. I’ve never had a pedicure in my life. This sweater came from the Meijer clearance section and is actually kinda itchy. Each selfie I post had 267 deleted photos before it. The only makeup I wear is whatever samples I still have from my canceled Ipsy subscription. I will NEVER, and I mean NEVER, drink celery juice. I have anxiety that sometimes makes things VERY hard for me. Basically… I can’t really provide any valuable advice or direction when it comes to fashion or skin care or healthy living. But what I CAN do is always be honest with you. I can give you a glimpse into the life of an imperfect mother, wife, friend, grandma, sister, daughter. I can show you how I try to be a present wife and mother while also trying to run 2 successful businesses. I can show you how most days I try to cook healthy meals, but also still order the occasional pizza or have ice cream dates so my kids don’t riot. This is me. I’m owning it. Thanks for being here!

Love, I think this is where we start, where everything starts, it is the root.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ♥️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kindness, courage, empathy, compassion, gratitude, faith, hope, are all rooted in love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our relationships, how we approach the world, and the people in it, is rooted in love, or the lack of it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I read an article by @brenebrown on dehumanization and the need to “rehumanize” I quoted this article this weekend in stories and the full article is linked in my profile. This article just resonates with me, in my spirit, in my heart. ♥️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It brings me back to my years at the shelter and what I did there and why LOVE is so fundamental to EVERYTHING. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It reminds me that I can choose to live out love in my life and in how I respond to any situation, including the daily dehumanizing currently occurring at our borders.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It stirs up why we started Outside The Box, our mission, and the why I keep trying and creating, and curating, and putting it out into the world. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I may not change the world, but I believe we can create change, I believe our actions make an impact no matter how seemingly small, and I believe we can empower our kids to believe and do the same. I believe in love and all that is rooted in love. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Currently we are participating in the @_stillwerise auction The auction ends December 18th (that’s tomorrow y’all) And there are hundreds of amazing shops, artist, and creators participating. 100% of the auction proceeds will go to @fams2gether and @circleofhealth If you have any last minute holiday shopping to do, a birthday coming up, just want to treat yourself, or are looking for a way to give back.

Why pay $35 for a Santa photo when you can take your own photos waiting in line? 😂🎅🏼 . Christmas has been so much more fun with a 1-year-old than a 1-month-old. I've been enjoying this Christmas season SO much, probably because last year I kind of glazed over Christmas with a newborn. We got Griffin a Tickle Me Elmo this year and I can't WAIT for him to open it. He LOVES Elmo! 👹 . On Friday I was feeling SUPER overwhelmed by the holidays, but Andrew helped me wrap presents and bake cookies this weekend, so I'm now keeping my head above water. How YOU doin'? 😅 . If wrapping presents is still on your check list, check out my blog post with 10 Christmas gift wrapping ideas!

Who else can relate? ⭐️I feel horrible: Migraines, Digestion Issues, Inflammation, No Energy, Foggy Brain, Sleepless Nights. ⭐️Feeling unfulfilled in your job(s), working long hours, traveling and always counting down till the end of the day, end of the week or my next vacation. This was me👆🏼 and I know I am not alone. I chose HOPE 5.5 years ago. I not only got back my health but it resulted in an extra stream of income which turned into much more than a full time income working a lot less hours (and you can too!) Now I am the CEO of my healthy fit life! If you can relate or know someone that is seeking better health, extra income or has a passion for helping people please send them my way. We are launching a 30 day NEW year, New You accountability group January 7th. Complete the assessment in the comments and we will set up a 1:1 call! Are you ready to choose Hope for the Holidays?

Be your own magic✨ . We give lots of power to Mondays to make or break our mood for the week. Changing perspective to treating Monday as a ally vs. enemy helps to create balance. . 3 Monday Morning Life hacks that shifted my perspective. . 1. I drop my son off vs. waking him up earlier for the bus. He sleeps in longer (happier toddler) and I gain 40 extra minutes. . 2. Exercise 15, 20, or 30 min (any form/non-negotiable) while he sleeps in. Try dancing through the house, setting up a exercise corner for squats, jumping jacks/rope, or watching a video. Short workouts boosts moods, provides clarity, and helps to feel more productive before starting my work day. Try Youtube their HIIT 10 min videos are great. . 3. Listen to worship or inspirational messages. YouTube, podcast, pandora, or audible are my heavy rotation. Play it in the house and/or on the car ride to school and work. (Immersion shifts mindsets) . Bonus✨- Does your employer allow flex time? The option of delaying my start time on Mondays to 9:30/10 just one day a week is so worth it. (Add on a few minutes to other work days to make the time up) Dropping my son off, avoiding rush hour traffic, and having a hour to myself before starting my day at the beginning of the week, priceless. No frenzy, panic, or irritated mood when you find small ways to create space for your wants and needs. . #magicmonday #createyourownreality #happymondayeveryone

I am very aware that my feed has unintentionally become ALL 👶 but that is honestly my life 😂 and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I am loving stories more than these squares these days, it’s more in the moment and much easier to share with you all! However today was the day I got back on my mat for the first time for some very basic movement and a couple headstands and I am AMAZED by my body. I truly am incredibly lucky I know; other than my hamstrings and quads being a little tighter (I put that down to walking a lot) and a slightly dodgy wrist, I seemed to have somehow kept the strength and mobility prior to baby...yet to try handstanding...fear has crept back in again 🙄 These first 15 weeks have consisted of a lot of walking, carrying beanie, lifting general things around the house mindfully and that’s about it! Thank you baby 🙌 for sleeping this morning! .............… #15weekspostpartum #mumtalk #yoga #yogamum

Good morning and happy Monday everyone. Our weekend was not amazing as Sufyan was not feeling well and all my time and energy was spent to make him feel better. Kids have been really good over the weekend. I guess they could feel the tension in the house and they behaved really good. #alhamdulillah Sufyan is feeling much more better now thank God for that. If I do get time I will edit one of my vlogs which is much over due now. PS: in this picture Rahma felt really proid that she could finally get the hang of sipper #proudgirl #channelmumvillage

I have to admit, Christmas had been a little overwhelming this year. We have been sooo busy with lots of wonderful events with family and friends, and there's plenty to look forward to in the next week. . On the other hand, it means I'm just now getting around to posting a picture of my girls when we got our Christmas tree...over 2 weeks ago.

I feel so blessed to have these 2 beautiful babies but I must admit second time around has not been anything like I imagined. . I am the type of mother that craves structure and thrives on routine. Everything I thought I knew and wanted to implement this time around has been thrown out the window. You see, my son is so different to my daughter. Our entire journey together thus far has been different in every way and because of this I have had to learn to let go, relinquish all control and just be whatever he needs me to be and that’s so HARD for me. . . . . . . . . . . _______________ #momstruggles #parenthood_unveiled #honestlymothering #mymamahood #motherhood #routinebaby #routninemom #realmomlife #mymotherhood #momsunite #messy_motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #momminainteasy #unitedinmotherhood #uniteinmotherhood #thisismotherhood #motherslove #motherandson #teammotherly #motherhoodjourney #momlifeunfiltered #breastfeedingmama #mommyblog #mamasboy #momcommunity #momblogger #honestmotherhood #newmumblog #motherhoodintheraw

#baby drinking carrot juice for the first time!! People ask me what I do to have a smart baby ... 😅 Since I was pregnant with pedrito I would also drink lots of green juices and eat alot of #superfoods ..also would put huge earphones over my belly and play binaural beats. Could that be it?!🤔😅... What I been doing for the past 10 months is.... everyday I make sure I try my best to teach him something new. I think just by playing with him helps alot.. It's like being a kid again...and I love it !! 😁 I also been going with him to the library where his learning how to interact with other babys... They do story time and dance and sing too... His a free spirit tho..he likes to also ditch class and go do his own thing lmao..

He is really trying to talk at the moment, he is rolling a lot more and still massively hating on tummy time. He is growing up before our eyes.

It’s so important to remind ourselves of this all year round, but perhaps especially during the Christmas season. What your child really wants (and needs) is your heart. We can all give them plenty of that. Wishing you the joy of sharing unconditional love in your parenting💗 . . . . . #lovefirst #livethoughtfully #lifetruths

Brothers...these 2 can butt heads more often than I can count, and get into a wrestling match in the blink of an eye. They can be so different and yet, still share the same passions. They both want to be inventors, a soccer star, a professional piano player and an artist. . . I am the oldest of 5 girls, and so I didn't know how I'd handle two boys, 4 years apart. My oldest and my youngest 😘...

Someone asked if they were twins today. I like that question so much better than " where did he come from?! Looks like you took him from another country!" 🙄😂 I love to tell people I was born with that same hair color...I think half of the time they don't believe me 🤷‍♀️😂. #Gwenthewildchild #Ariktheadventurer #siblings #notevenirishtwins #arikisjustatank 😂💙

Marlow turned 4 months yesterday, which means 4 months of breastfeeding (he’s refused to take a bottle of anything!) I’m slowly started to fit back into my pre pregnancy clothes and trying to get a little bit summer ready (if Bunbury ever decides to give us a summer 🙄) I’ve been taking these @milkandnourish milk boosters and they’ve been amazing! I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love stuffing my face with boobie biscuits but they haven’t helped with buttoning the jeans up 😳 and with these boosters, I still wake up with full boobs and have been able to sustain Marlows feedings throughout the day 🙌🏼 It’s a win win!

Does anyone else feel like when they scroll Instagram, everyone else's weekends look so fun with smiley, happy kids, relaxing family bonding time and trips to the park, etc? Why do I not look forward to weekends? Is there something wrong with me? Sometimes I find them boring. Sometimes they make me grieve for my life before kids. They are often stressful. There is so much time to fill until bedtime and the couch and TV and house belong to me again. During the week, I have so much more time to myself because my kid goes to school and my husband goes to work. I live by my schedule in the hours between drop off and pick up. I work. I work out. See mom friends. I get my errands done. Some days I even nap! What about all of you? Do you think TGIM (Thank God It's Monday) is the new TGIF (Thank God It's Friday)?

. “If you want to have a good partner, be a good partner.” @marriage365 . I didn’t have the perfect example of a healthy and thriving marriage (no knock to my parents). Marriage actually scared me. Scared me because I could at one point potentially end up like my parents, divorced (again, no knock on them). . When I met my forever after, and said “I do”, I was excited to do life with him, but scared because I didn’t know how to be a wife, I was still learning to be a mother to a five year old. . As the days, weeks, months and seven years of marriage, I still don’t have the “Wife” thing down. Shoot I still don’t have the “Mom” thing down either. . Look, I fail everyday but I don’t let that failure hold me down from learning from those failures. I may pout from time to time, but I strive to be better. . I want my husband to know that he is important, he matters, and I’m always there. He makes me want to be a better wife and mama to our three humans that we’ve been blessed with.

We made salt dough ornaments tonight and we'll finish them tomorrow! Kid crafts don't always come easy to me 😬 Especially if it's a gift for someone because it's hard for me to let go of "perfection" and let them just create. But the more often I try, the easier it gets. #craftychristmas #diygifts

Being a new mum, no matter if it's your first, second or third time can be a crazy rollercoaster ride of emotions. Magic one minute, overwhelming and stressful the next 😫 Did you know that post partum anxiety is actually more common than depression in new mums? Yet there isn't much awareness around it. We don't hear about the risks, the signs or the stories as much but it's real and very common! There can be a huge range of factors involved such as history of mental health issues, social isolation, lack of support, sleep deprivation etc. The most important thing you can do is talk to someone you trust and remember we all have our shit days/weeks/months. It doesn't mean you're a bad mum or that you don't love your little ones 🌻 So to all the mummas having a tough time you are doing an amazing job. Last week was a tough one for me and having my husband tell me this really turned my day around so now I'm telling you the same! 😊 #postpartumanxiety #maternalmentalhealth #itsoktonotbeok

It feels like a huge responsibility...doesn’t it? 😅. . Being a mother does put us at the center of our children’s universe, at least for the early weeks and months to the MINIMUM... . When we fully accept this, we can perhaps start to prioritize small daily decisions with a positive bias towards US, as women, as mothers who are responsible for the survival and flourishing of our offspring (in best case scenarios in solid partnerships or with strong community support)💚. . When we understand and consciously acknowledge that our wellbeing should be our absolute first priority, we can change the way we pretty much do....everything (!!) so that we fill our cup first, take a shower first, eat the hot soup first, spend that extra $ on a fulfilling outing/experience rather than on another cute baby outfit, “miracle” gadget, special edition stroller... . What I have come to realize in the past 6 years and 3 tiny humans later, is this: if I don’t put myself first, NO ONE WILL! 🤷🏻‍♀️😳. . My girls are happier when I feel well. When I do what I love. Because they feel all that I don’t express, see what adults don’t, and need a solid and stable anchor to navigate life freely, with trust, optimism and compassion💗.
