Too often we take thing for granted. Too often we don’t realize what we have that others don’t. Stop a moment and take a look at your wonderful life. * What are you thankful for today? * * * * * * #gratefulness #thankful #fulllife #gratefulforlife #thankfulforlife #love #life #takingthingsforgranted #donttakethingsforgranted #lovewhatyouhave #abundance #begracious #bethankful #loveyourlife #loveyourself #changeyourself #inspiration #wednesdayinspiration #wednesday #thankfulwednesday
Hey, I'm Kayla Grey! It's been a while since I have introduced myself and I see a lot of new faces! So here are 3 facts about me, and then I would love to get to know you! * 1. I LOVE pasta! In my mind it is a food group all of it's own. I believe most of the time that penne should be the only pasta we ever eat... that includes mac and cheese (which I love to make fresh). * 2. I have been struggling with my weight and body image since I joined the Navy. After bootcamp, when I arrived at my first duty station things went south. Way, way, south and I couldn't stop it. I gained a significant amount of weight becuase of the stress I was under (due to non military things), personal issues, and... drinking. I have struggled to lose the weight and get back to my true self since I arrive home in 2007. * 3. I am infatuated with my husband of 6 years, boyfriend of 10 years, and friend of 11 years. He is my rock, my pillar, my biggest fan, my best of best friends. He loves me inside and out, darkness and light. I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else. I don't even want to try. * So tell me, what are three things about you? What do you love? * * * * * * #love #passion #monday #mondayintroductions #introductions #weightloss #weightlossstruggle #struggles #militarystruggles #lost #darkness #light #bestfriend #husband #husbandandwife #loveofmylife #pastalover #pennepasta #pennamacandcheeseisthebest #alliwantispennepasta #pastaisafoodgroup #seattle #writer #seattlewriter #findingmeagain #selfjourney #weightlossjourney #whatdoyoulove #mondayinspration
Hope you have a SWEET and fun weekend!
I couldn't imagine a day without him anymore. He is my best friend, my support system, and my biggest fan in everything I do. He is my rock. * Every day I fall more in love with him. Every day I learn new things. Every day I grow closer to him with each passing minute. * He means more to me than anything else. He is my best friend and I thank God for bringing him into my life.
I have an obsession with coffee. * The first step is admitting it. Haha! * When we first moved to Seattle I was still going to Starbucks. That was until a friend told me since we live above @UpTownEspresso we have to try them! I have since avoided Starbucks! For the most part anyway. There is just something about the local coffee shops that make coffee so much better! * What's your favorite coffee shop? and when do you like to have your coffee? * * * * * * #uptownespresso #nonfatvanillacaramellatte #coffeeobsessed #coffeelover #favoritecoffee #seattlecoffee #seattle #seattleuptownespresso #espresso #betterthanstarbucks #starbucksswitcher #writer #seattlewriter #seattlelifestyle #olympicsculpturepark #fountains #walkandtalk #walkingwithcoffee #coffeeandinspiration #inspiration #coffeetowork
I don't know the last time I wore a dress in public! * So I have been MIA, I know. Life has been swirling around me like a typhoon bringing monstrous changes. I have been holding on for dear life praying I don't fall flat on my face and break down. * I can't wait to share what has been happening. We are really excited about this new chapter in our lives... in my life. * Now on to this picture... * I can't tell you the last time I wore a dress in public, during the daylight hours! Now... I'm wearing them a lot more! I am still self-conscious about how I look and feel, but I definitely feel better! * I have been eating healthier, or in a different healthy way, and I have been working out harder but smarter. * 5wks ago I broke down after turning 31, completely fed up with how I felt in my mind body and soul. So as a birthday present to myself I invested in the @bodybossmethod system. Believe me when I say I have tried everything under the sun except for this. * I have never seen better or faster results, AND! I messed up during those first 4 weeks! * Now I want to go out on dates with my husband. Wear nice dresses again. Get up early in the morning and workout. I crave it and the food! * This is all part of the change blooming in my life. * What's something changing in your life? If nothing is, what's one thing you would like to change?
Spending Sunday with a good book, my legs kicked up on my hubbies lap, our pups crashed on the couch and some epic music! So peaceful! What are you doing today?
It finally happened! After waiting for 3 weekends to find out the surprise my husband had in store for my birthday I finally know! A car show/meetup! It was so much fun seeing all the beautiful and exotic cars all in one place! The car behind us is my dream car!! Hope everyone is having a beautiful and fun Saturday!
I have a confession to make! * I have let fear and anxiety bring me down more times that I can think. * I have let the weight of the world crumble down on my shoulders taking it right along with me. * Things like that happen when I don't connect with God daily. I'm not exaggerating. David and I have seen our life go from being incredible... to falling apart in a matter of days. * Those times happened when we were no longer praying together. No longer connecting with God. And no longer relying on him to make things beautiful again. * It's taken this past year to realize how much we not only need each other but God as well. We need him daily. We need positive people in our lives and a good connection with the Almighty Father. * It's as simple as that. Now I know that when anxiety and fear overtake me, I remind myself that God has my back. He has already taken care of everything we have asked for, and I have to trust him. * What do you do to keep your fear and anxiety at bay? 📷 @thebibleapp * * * * * * #scriptures #god #almightfather #holyspirit #spiritled #anxiety #fear #scriptural #psalm94v19 #bible #passion #love #christian #faith #trust #trustinGod #lord #joy #ithasbeentakencareof #life #seattle #seattlewriter #seattleblogger #christianlifestyle #loverofchrist #husband #communication #prayer #praytogether #dailyconnection
