“I was talking to a group of women recently about our career paths and each one of us mentioned that we had been ‘lucky’ at one point or another in our jobs. Then we finally stopped ourselves and said, ‘No. We have been risk takers and as a result, we put ourselves in the right places at the right times.’” - @workingmother #workingmother

It’s his 1st Birthday Weekend 🍰🎉 and he’s thisclose to fully walking on his own 👣 (check out my stories for a look at him taking his longest solo walk yet!)... While I really am so excited, each milestone is pretty bittersweet. 💗 Right parents?
Going from a family of 3 to a family of 4 was challenging but in such different ways than when we welcomed our firstborn. It wasn’t nearly as challenging for our marriage but for me personally, despite being MUCH more confident in my mama abilities, caring for 2 babies under 2 was still hard. I oftentimes felt/feel like I can’t giving either my 100% ... but I’ve come to the conclusion that I give most of myself to them and surely, that’s more than enough. ❤️
This little guy has been a big brother for almost a year.. 💙 In that time it seems like he’s both grown so much but I’ve also been reminded that he’s just a toddler himself, learning and navigating his way through his new stages and role. ✨ What an amazing little boy and big brother he is... 💙
This is me makeup-free and showing off my motherhood marks. ✨ [ad] While I (proudly) bear stretch marks and my C-section scar, I also have many beauty marks on my neck and face that came out during pregnancy. 🤰 They are reminders of the strength of my body & the gifts it gave me: my babies + motherhood. 💗 With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s time to think about what to gift the special moms in your life. @kohls fine jewelry selection, including these Sterling Silver Swirozski cubic zirconia earrings, is beautiful and on sale! #kohlsfinds #kohlsjewelry
🌸 Spring has bloomed! 🌸 Springtime weather means family walks have resumed! 💗 It’s one of my favorite ways to get quality time together, burn off some calories (and energy for S) and enjoy the beautiful weather. Did you get outdoors this weekend? ☀️ — Swipe➡️ to see a pic from last year by a similar tree. R was a newborn & I was newly postpartum. 👶🏼💙 It’s neat to see how much changes in a year, my editing style included 📸
Our recent vacation was our first time away as a family of 4❣️ I just loved my time away with my 3 guys. We had much-needed R&R and memory-making. 💗 ❤️ Growing up, my family traveled mostly with extended family. (Which was great!) As I got older, though, I sort of wished I had more memories of time spent with just my parents and brother. That’s one of the reasons I want to make our family of 4 (and more when more 👶🏼come along🙃)vacations a tradition.💓 Do you go on more immediate family or extended family vacations?
On the one hand, I see a garden full of weeds that needs to be tended to. 🌱 On the other hand, I only see flowers blooming in that garden. 🌼 [ad] Which do you choose to see? I usually choose to see the latter in life situations. And I mean especially now- because this means spring is HERE and I’m too excited to mind the weeds. I’ll get to them when I can- ‘til then the flowers will be sitting pretty. 💐 I am ready to step out in the spring weather with my new @TOMS sandals. They’re comfy and chic, and for every purchase made #TOMS donates a pair of shoes to someone in need! 💛 Receive 15% off your next purchase with my code: momentsofmusing15 #sponsored #springtoms
Instead of missing my pre-mom bod, I’m choosing to love, nourish and cheer on my mom bod! Any one else doing the same?? 🙌🏽 💗 There’s a reason most of my solo vacation photos are in this swim suit 👙 and it’s not because it’s my favorite (though it IS my fave🌈❤️ lol). It’s actually because I didn’t take many solo shots any other day. 📸 I wanted to be as present as possible since I worked remotely (more about how I was able I do so at link in my bio 🔗)
