We currently have a foot of snow ❄️...so I’m closing my eyes and pretending I’m back in Florida with my besties. ☀️
And yes, I have cellulite on my legs. I’m human. And I’m not about to photoshop it so I can appear to be someone I’m not.
But who else has snow right now?! I’m just thankful I’m pregnant and don’t have to shovel! 😉 Pregnancy is the best excuse for everything! That’s why I’m in NO rush for this baby to come out. 😜 #GottaMilkItForAsLongAsICan
This cheeky chops is starting to get better. We’ve been going on long walks to get fresh air, lots of warm meals and plenty of fluids (his go to is milk as per usual). His napping has decreased back to normal which is brill, but he’s still falling asleep anywhere and everywhere. Currently on the sofa when he passes out while drinking his bottle. I’m still keeping a close eye on him just in case he goes backwards again but after a night of sleep without waking I’m confident he’s going back to his normal self
Ether and I met in 2013. We were physically together for nine months, during which we dated in a college town, two young adults— one of them merely an 18-year-old girl— wanting to create a love that would last. We were wild and free. No responsibilities (well, “real” responsibilities). Just fun. Just young, fun-loving lovers. ✨
After nine months of being together, we started a two-year long-distance relationship. On the day that we said goodbye in the airport, tears were free-flowing. I had never met or loved anyone like him before. I was scared. He was scared. We were scared of the future. But we promised to walk it hand-in-hand, even if it meant our hands had to stretch around the world to reach each other. ✨
Over the two years that we were apart, we learnt to be patient. We HAD to be patient. We knew that we strongly trusted in how we had been brought together initially— a higher hand, a divine power, God — and so we had to trust that we would be brought back together again. We were patient with the own learning and growing that we did separately (but together), over those two years. We looked forward, with patience, to our reunion. And our patience paid off. A month after I returned from Asia, he proposed. Three months later, we were married.
This morning, my heart is having trouble staying calm over some other things that I know I can’t control. I know that I’ve proven patient before, and I can do it again. But it’s hard. It’s hard not to question, “Why not now?” Yesterday I mentioned in my stories that I was very emotional. This is why. Because I am jumpy. I am impatient. And I want my heart to calm down. Will you please comment and let me know how YOU remain patient in the midst of wanting time to either slow down or speed up? Will you let me know what helps YOU stay patient? ✨
I go back to work in two weeks and the thought of it is killing me. Thankful to be working such a limited schedule but it’s still going to be hard leaving my baby. Kudos to all you working mommas out there! It’s seriously no joke. We started being a little most strict with our sleep arrangement this week and it’s been so hard trying to find that rhythm and I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to start it. I’d appreciate any tips if you have any! ✨PS crying over here at how big Moonie is getting. 😭 #littlewillamoon
Always running used to be our normal. But now we are focusing on slowing down and enjoying our time together as a family. I am soaking up these years where the kiddos actually want to be with the hubs and I. 😂
Learn more about how slowing down helped us find peace on the blog.
Little excerpt from @lysaterkeurst new book. I needed to read this. And reread this. Maybe you do too.
Who told you that you are naked?
Who told you that you are anything less than a most glorious creation of the almighty God?
Who spoke words over you and about you that striped you bare and broke your heart?
Whatever statement was spoken to you that came against the truth must be called a lie.
Gods word is the truth.
And his truth says you are a holy and dearly loved child of your heavenly father.
You are wonderfully made.
You are beautiful.
You are a treasure.
You are fully know by him and lavishly loved by him.
You are chosen
You are special
You are set apart no matter what you’ve done or what’s been done to you. These words of God are true about you.
May we carefully choose what we remember, and what we forget.
Needed some brightness as I got my move on this morn ☀️
And it made me think about which of these fruits of life I most need to work on today
Truth is I need to work at them all! But I think it's easier to tackle things in bite size pieces than going for everything at once
So today I'm praying for more self-control so I...
Yell less at my littles
Control my urges to do it all now
Slow down & pray more
What about you? Can I pray for you as you focus on one or more of these on this fruity Friday, let's call it???
My littles are all into a fun fruity Friday!! They were making funny faces as you can see from my mini-me in honor of fruity Friday 😜

Earlier this week, I happened to overhear my daughter as I was walking down the hall with an armful of folded laundry. I stopped and listened quietly to her soft voice playing alone in her bedroom and after a few moments, realized she was re-enacting bedtime with her dolls. As she played, I heard her narrating and imitating the same words and responses she was given the night before as my husband and I took turns talking and struggling to get her to go to sleep. You guys… The framework of this little girl’s play was molded entirely from the interactions she had experienced with us the night before. I mean… WOW. The dialogue with her dolls was a near mirror response!
Parents. Let me be the first to admit that none of us are perfect. We all lose our cool and handle some moments with a little less grace than we’d like to admit. Our imperfections are what drive our humanity… so the reminder I was given today by my three-year-old daughter is one I feel cannot be shared enough.
Our children are watching us, listening to us, and learning from us ALL . THE . TIME. Moments in which we respond with exhausted fatigue or careless distraction may just be the moments in which our children are remembering our every word. Our children are sponges and we have the privilege of being their ocean.
Let this be a reminder for you to give your children the same thing you need from them. Model the patience and forgiveness you expect them to give you. Remember that the way we speak and react to our children becomes the standard to which they speak and react to others. Who you want your children to become is who you need to be.
Have you ever seen a cuter way to get in your 2 ounces of ningxia a day?! (Shi gets one ounce in his sippy mixed w| distilled water) ♥️ .
Have you tried Ningxia Red yet?
It’s a staple year round in our home - but especially during the winter months.
1 ounce of NingXia Red has the same amount of antioxidant levels as:
➕4 pounds of carrots
➕2 quarts carrot juice
➕2 pounds raw beets
➕2 cups beet juice
➕3 cups blueberries
➕2 cups raspberries
➕1 pint orange juice
WHY are antioxidants important?
Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals - molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals may play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases.
— It is not WHAT you are wearing, it’s HOW you wear it. .
Find your own glamor and confidence in whatever you pull from your closet. Toss aside the rules of what beauty is supposed to look like, of how women are supposed to dress, to please, to impress. Bring your own style. Be YOUR brand of boldness and beauty. .

I’ve been thinking a lot about this post and wondered when I would feel ready to share the health and wellness part of my journey. Throughout my entire pregnancy I heard, read and talked about how every pregnancy is different as is every postpartum journey.
I’m grateful for the support that I have from family, friends and fellow moms, near and far. You are little lights that keep things in perspective on days when I get lost or tangled up in the comparison game. This journey, the PP journey, is constant and can’t be covered in one post, so I have divided the first “bit” into a 5 part series. As part of #fridayintroductions and #wellnesswednesdays I’ll share a bit more about me. Here we go... Leaning in, diving a bit deeper and sharing some more vulnerable moments.
It took 9 months to grow a little human, in a matter of hours he came into our world and became my entire world. The fourth trimester is by far the best and most challenging part of my journey (so far!). I’m amazed at what my body has done and continues to do. I have focused a good chunk of my love, time and efforts on this little being for the last 3 months.
The night Isaiah was born I didn’t sleep, I kept waking up to check on him. In those early moments I felt so much happiness and knew that my body had made that possible. I promised myself to be patient with my body and to give it grace.
Each night I take a few deep breaths and hum to myself, one hand on chest and one on my stomach - the home to our sweet Isaiah - thank you for all that you’ve done and all that you’ve given me. I promise to take care of you and to give you time to heal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
