Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of song. - Pam Brown ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Father's Day! ❤️ (head over to my Stories to see the full image)
Cheers to the weekend my friends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since Father's Day is this weekend, this is a special Friday shoutout to all the amazing dad's out there that will be celebrated. If you're going to be silly with someone, dad's always a good go-to. Cheers to the dads! ❤️
This one graduates today.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cheers to the future kiddo.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can't wait to watch you take on the world.
In just three days, this kid will be officially done with preschool. It's been such an amazing experience watching him grow, learn and make friends. But let's also admit, It has been a learning experience for me as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a parent, I have learned to better communicate with my child and to understand what he needs and how he feels. This experience has definitely deepened the bond between the two of us, so in essence, I am graduating from preschool in a few days too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The one thing that we both will take away from our preschool experience though? The power of kindness. I have watched this kid of mine learn and practice kindness by connecting with friends on an emotional level, being aware of them and understanding how they are feeling and knowing how to provide comfort to them when they need. He is only five years old and I have learned so much from watching him and my hope for him, as a parent, is that he continues on this path of kindness and empathy. Oh, and maybe learn to read and write along the way too (eventually). 😝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” – Desmond Tutu

Some Thursday, almost-the-weekend inspiration for you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your plans for the weekend? Looking forward to anything awesome? Share your weekend vibes with me.
I. Am. Thankful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week for some reason, I have been feeling more and more of this. Twenty years ago, I decided to chase a dream. I never knew that this dream would give me so many life experiences. I have met so many people, experienced so many experiences (highs and lows, of course), had great adventures, and have learned so much about myself and have grown as an artist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a Mama today, I am even more thankful that I have chased a dream that allows me the opportunity to be a work-from-home mom where I can experience the joys (and sometimes lows) of raising my son and spending as much time with him before he heads into the world of full-time school, sporting events, obligations, etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Twenty years ago, I had no clue what I was getting myself into but I knew that I had to try and fly. With that said, I want to share one of my favorite quotes about chasing dreams... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. –Harriet Tubman ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what dreams are you chasing? XO
Less than two weeks until we celebrate summer! We are getting ready for bike rides and bonfires by the beach. 🏖️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what do you have planned this summer? Share your summer vibes with me! ☀️
Oh Monday, can't we just relax and cuddle all day long? ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know, it's wishful thinking. I've already ran errands, worked at my kiddo's preschool, and now am hard at work editing through last week's sessions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even though it's Monday, we can still dream right? ✨ Tell me friends, what's in store for you this week?
A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. - Proverbs ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We spent the entire weekend hanging out together and working on our landscaping. There's something to say about when you've spent the day outdoors, your shoulders a little red from the sun, and smelling a bit like dirt - it was well worth the sweat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope you got to spend the weekend surrounded by love, laughs, good people and good times. XO
“Respect your children. Treat them like the person you admire most on earth. I really mean that as a way of life. If you treat your children with respect then they will learn to respect themselves. I can't think of a better thing to let your kid out into the world with than self-respect.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want my children to feel empowered. That's the most important thing. I think as a mom it's important to teach your children that they're extraordinary, powerful beings. Your job is to keep the path clear so there is nothing they can trip on.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ― Thandie Newton⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday friends! I am absolutely loving this quote, it’s how I feel about raising a good, balanced kiddo. Any one else feel like this? ❤️
Thursdays are for all things pretty, so why not just stare at this gorgeous ring all. day. long. Am I right!? 😍
Happy Wednesday! Who else is excited for Friday already!? I spent the long weekend with my family (away from social media for a few days - which was quite nice), putting a lot of blood, sweat and tears working on the house and enjoying our time together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don't know about you but I'm jumping for joy that it's only two more sleeps until the weekend comes again. In the meantime, it's back to work, spreading positive vibes and enjoying life (eventually we'll get unpacked and I'll find my mascara again)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what are you going to accomplish before the weekend rolls around again?
