“Violence is immoral because it profits from hatred. It destroys the unity and makes the brotherhood between people impossible.”
True story!⠀ ⠀ Mike and I are moving again!⠀ ⠀ What?!⠀ ⠀ Didn’t you just move and remodel and then move and then remodel again?⠀ ⠀ Yes, yes we did. No, we’re not trying to be the next Chip and Joanna Gaines... (though Mike is doing a pretty epic job at daily video journaling the progress - Soon to posted here and in stories).⠀ ⠀ Truth is we had a plan before finding the perfect fixer upper and that we did and fixing up we are! But this time for a long time.⠀ ⠀ We’ll be out of our interim home by the end of next week, chillin in a condo for a short bit while the remodel takes place and then moving in to our new home. ⠀ ⠀ It’s been overwhelming, but it’s the kind of overwhelm we are optimistic about taking on. ⠀ ⠀ There are so many new things happening. Not only has this global change totally shifted the way I think about life, but it’s completely pivoted my business and launched several new product ideas that I’ve never felt more urgency about getting out. It’s forced me to take action on things I’d done a really good job just ‘thinking’ about. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve been longing for these changes actually for quite awhile and although patience is not my strongest virtue, I keep reminding myself that good things take time. ⠀ ⠀ The same goes for you, whatever it is : This season won’t last forever, and when it comes it will be better than you could have imagined! I truly believe that. What are you patiently waiting for?
Hope is the thing that makes me better. It's the cure to my stress. It's the light at the end of my tunnel. It's the spark that ignites my momentum. It's the sugar in my creative juice. Hope shows me the possibilities and without it, I am stifled. That's how much I rely on it! There's so much happening right now - some may be for the better and some may not. We just don't know. But, I know this... we can hope. I'm super curious as to what everyone is hopeful for right now... like what's the big thing for you??? 👇👇👇👇👇
Nothing like a little anger and unexpected rain to get yer fastest mile in.
THIRTEEN! 1️⃣3️⃣ WHAT?! Our baby of the family is 13! ‼️ My Chloe Bean. I remember feeling you in my belly as I set up your room and folded all your onesies in preparation for your big arrival. 👶 You brought joy and peace at a time when I needed it the most. I loved waking up in the middle of the night and nursing you back to sleep. It was just you and me in those quiet moments. 🤫 Since then it's been such a blast watching you grow and become this funny, chatty, talented, heartfelt young woman. 💕 You impress me with your drive to achieve. You are so strong and you speak up for yourself and what you believe in, even if met with opposition... something I wish I had the courage to do way sooner than I did even as an adult. 🌟 You are a beautiful balance of sweetness and strength and I am so so proud to be your mama. 🥰 I love you sweet girl. Happy Birthday 💕❤️
There for me through EVERYTHING! How perfect that my daddy's birthday landed on Mother's Day this year so I can celebrate you both in one day! My mommy... she is what I wish every human could experience for a mother. The definition of love, beauty and strength. And my daddy... the definition of authenticity, warmth and encouragement. How I got so lucky to get these two as my parents, I don't know. But, never a day goes by that I'm not grateful. Happy Birthday, daddy and Happy Mother's Day, mommy.
So many flowers have lost their petals. Dreams have been stifled. Hearts have been broken. Irreparable damage has been inflicted. And while some of these flowers (some of you who I know and love so much) feel like that inner fire won't come back. I know it will. Sending this out to those who needed to be reminded... you will come back.
