:: On every holiday there’s a moment that crystallizes my experience and brings meaning to the whole time away. • This time, it was in a nanosecond on our last full day. We took a “beach walk” at the ocean and B declared, “Let’s all go in!” • She and the Hubbs ran towards the waves. I, the mom, held back fussing with my hat trying to figure out where to put it, when she rushed back up the beach, out of the rolling surf, gently grasped my forearm and pulled me towards the surf in the most cheerful way, “Come in, Mom!” • It’s been along time since she’s done this. She invited me to play with her. In that nano second, I saw this as a beautiful moment of connection. • It’s a moment, I know is fleeting as she leaves being a girl and becomes a young lady. She invited me into her bliss of the water - into fun, and into her joy. It felt so good. It filled my heart and now fills my eyes as I write this. It was a defining moment. • You’ve got your own defining moments happening all the time. Watch for them. There’s meaning in each one large and small that are there to fill your heart (and maybe your eyes) too. #joyfullyintentional
:: Morning workout...🙈💪🏾😝 #hillsandstairs #unintentionalexercise
:: Think of all the things your body does for you. Now, think of all the ways you’ve been mean to it in the past - told it that it wasn’t good enough, told it that it was too fat to fit into “that dress”, told it to be something different before you could love it. • If that inner voice who told you those mean things was a girlfriend of yours and she spoke to you that way, would you keep her or would you dump her? • So why do it to yourself? It’s possible to dump that voice by, every day, honoring what your body is and does for you by dressing it well, in balance, with expression and of course in color that lifts your mindset - it’s called enclothed cognition. And it’s for real. • Now, think all the amazing things you could create if you felt unstoppable in your body and what it could help you create....what dreams would you create? #HueAndStyle #BodyLove
:: We were in and on the water today! • I’ve been on the Pacific lots of times but I’ve never seen it this calm. It made following dolphin pods, whale-watching and exploring the bays with our private guide so easy. • Then we spent time snorkeling at a tiny fishing village where our guide took us into a secret cave that doesn’t exist at high tide and where crabs climbed the walls. • We finished our day at a local beach restaurant complete with fresh pico de gallo, guacamole and good Cumbia music. All the things I just love about Mexico. It’s my happy place.
:: It’s sunset and the natural light is dipping but I managed to capture two of my favorite vacation hues - true blue and red. • Makeup on holiday doesn’t have to be complicated especially if you’ve spent the day in the sun. Just brighten the Face with one of your #HueAndStyle personalized colors in a top and on you lip and all done! They always coordinate. • We’re off to dinner and nighttime beach walk.
:: Yesterday, we felt the earth move under our feet - literally. • It was an earthquake. The epicenter wasn’t far from us. • I was snoozing and the Hubbs was watching an afternoon movie. I heard a rumbling and felt the bed vibrating. And I thought, “we don’t have a vibrating bed. It’s not the 70s.”😂 • I opened my eyes and he was looking at me. “Did you feel that?” • And then he went to his trusted Twitter, and, yup, not 1 minute after we felt it, there was a tweet confirming our experience. • Seriously 😳 an earthquake. Well, that was an adventure. We’re all safe but, ok, an earthquake. • And now, back to our regularly scheduled vacationing. #mexico
