Can you say a recipe for disaster??
In the process of moving out of state. Packing, staging our house, and lots of trips up to NY— not to mention our Mexico trip in less than a month 🤪
Two years ago I would still be the unhealthy, laying around with no energy, eating everything in sight feeling sorry for myself girl because life’s been stressful. But not anymore- this girl has goals 💃🏼 & I have a group full of ladies who are pushing play today no matter what and I am not about to let them down.
Day 4️⃣ completed.
Traveling, packing, and moving have been testing me this month and I am learning that even though I’m all over the place, I need to have some sort of structure and control in my life. Eating on a schedule requires a well prepared plan. & working out on a consistent basis requires it to be a priority! Something I’ve been struggling with. But this weekend I decided that with each new day, comes a chance to be better, to have fresh starts, and to change the course if you aren’t liking the result- so today my workout was pushed to the top of what feels like an endless “to-do” list, and I have to say it feels darn good to be back on track. #day1 /30
Still pinching myself that I get to create and collab on amazing projects and workshops, like this one from last weekend with @lady_larissa. Our first Meditation & Flower Mandala Workshop was everything we dreamed it would be and more. We are so excited to bring these to you each season, with details for our Autumn workshop coming soon.
Thanks to all the beauties who came and made magic with us last Sunday, to @belcombridgephotography for the amazing photos, to @hooraymag for supporting the event, and finally to my soul sister and flower queen @lady_larissa – you rock my world!
Tonight’s dinner looks a little something like this, but just for one – just for little ol’ me.
I’m at the coast spending a couple of days on my own, taking some me time and doing some biz planning away from my usual space. Breathing in that salty sea air and filling my heart with peace, quiet and the expansiveness of my own company.
Also, happy IWD to all the women in my life and the world who are making waves in their own unique way. You rock my world!
Dreaming of picnics under the stars tonight. Happy Friday friends!

When you look at this picture it may just look like a collage of photos. To me, this represents everything I live for each day. It represents purpose. It represents lives changed, including lives I have been able to have an impact on. ❤️ It represents a movement, and I couldn’t be more thankful to take part in it. 🙌🏼 #livesarechanging
It's FRIDAY! New Podcast Episode is live! You don't need a fancy podcast app---> you can listen right on the blog!
"All of human history has always had 24 hours in each day, and for many of those centuries most time was spent merely surviving. Yet, our culture is constantly saying we don’t have enough time! God knew what He was doing when He created 24 hours in each day, so how can we use the time He created for us well?
Today I am encouraging you to manage your time well by looking at time through the lens of God. I’m sharing some Bible verses about time and hoping that if you view time through the lens of God, it may help how you to use it more wisely.
Before you can manage your time well, you need to understand it and the One who created it."
When your job gives you positive energy to pour into your relationship I’d say you met your match ❤️#punintended 😉
But for real guys: for years I felt uncomfortable in my own skin. Didn’t even like my husband to look at me. And when he gave me compliments I quickly shut them down because #helloooo self-esteem issues. 🙅🏼♀️
This opportunity has given me my life back. It’s given me my relationship back. And it’s taught me how to take chances in life even when I’m scared to death. #bignewscomingsoon 👌🏼
Lucky for you, I don’t selfishly hold back what’s changed our life because I know what it can do for others too! Life’s all about decision making— imagine what this could do for you💃🏼 Inbox is open for messages!
“Letting go of every single dream
I lay each one down at Your feet
Every moment of my wandering
Never changes what You see
I try to win this war
I confess, my hands are weary, I need Your rest
Mighty warrior, king of the fight
No matter what I face You're by my side
When You don't move the mountains
I'm needing You to move
When You don't part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don't give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!
Truth is, You know what tomorrow brings. There's not a day ahead You have not seen. So let all things be my life and breath. I want what You want Lord and nothing less” 💗
So thankful for these two and this past week that threw us so many learning curves! Resting in the Lords promises and not allowing ourselves to grow weary anymore. 🙌
Why did the chicken cross the road?
To follow me to the mailbox. 🙄
As soon as I step foot outside, they run from wherever they are and follow me everywhere I go. Cracks me up!
But seriously, they followed me to the mailbox today- can’t a girl get some alone time?! 😂#chickens#hobbyfarm#enjoythesimple
Reading poetry, eating strawberries and listening to podcasts on this warm Sunday evening. This was just what I needed after working for most of the weekend. And yes, I did eat that whole punnet of strawberries on my own.
For R E A L. 😬
Some days my mind operates with 1,308,389,309 tabs opened at once. Today’s one of them. 🤯
Kids, husband, school, work, writing, projects, relationships, the news, family, friends, health, finances, and the list goes on.
I can’t think straight when my mind is cluttered. So how, oh how, do we declutter the non-tangibles!? 📝
I’m working on a project that will help us all stay focused, keep our minds fixed where they should be, and filter the noise. Pray with me?
Truth is, I need it just as much most days! #slowdown#focus#eyesonHim#eternalperspective#Godfirst#mentalclutter#enjoythesimple#simplify#declutter#lovetheLordaboveall
Back home and into the swing of full-time work. This year, I am committed to getting into a better daily routine, starting with making more of an effort with breakfast and snacks. I could definitely get used to this!
We recorded the next podcast episode today and talked all about how it is possible to thrive as a one-income family! The culture may tell you it’s NOT possible in today’s world, but we are not ones to listen to society- we’ve chosen to listen to God instead! 🙌🏻 We are sharing our story, not to say we are doing it the RIGHT way (only God can tell you what is right for your family), but to ENCOURAGE you that it IS possible to not just survive, but thrive as a one-income family. Listen in on Friday when the episode is live.
Birthday celebrations for the best little sister a girl could ask for @sparkles_cats 🎉 And now I seriously need to reign in my sugar intake... right after I finish off the left over cupcakes that I forgot I had hidden in the microwave from the baby shower 🙈
