My portraits are sometimes messy and a little chaotic, because so is life with kids. It definitely has it tough days, (like now for instance when my daughter was convinced she could fly off the trampoline with a broomstick...not once, but twice!), but it also has those magic moments where you experience a feeling of love and connection that you never thought possible. I don’t know about you but I want to remember that crazy messy love. Thank you to this beautiful family who booked me from France 🇫🇷 @mai_blu 😘. #existinphotographs

This day in 2010 this guy got down on one knee in our dinky little apartment in nowhere-land Tennessee and asked me to be his wife.
I was in my baggy PJs. No makeup on and hair up in a messy ponytail.
He still loved me then.
We had a small wedding that we spent less than 5k on in a restaurant where I use to go on special occasion dinners with my family as a kid.
We weren’t fancy.
We don’t have a blockbuster hit love story.
We grew and built a life together. That’s what love is. It’s not this insta-famous glamorized idealistic world. It’s going to sleep together and waking up with matted hair and stinky breath and still wanting to do that again the next night.
We may look like Barbie and Biff here in this photo. But our real lives are anything but the plastic dreams those dolls are made from.
Happy engagement anniversary to us. ❤️❤️❤️

Well with them, it won't be some race for who can seem to care less. The silence of your phone will no longer torment you with questions of what you did wrong. It will be easy, and they will give you their time, and you will never be confused in how they feel. You will wonder why you spent so many years chasing after people who only gave you parts of love, little fractions and pieces of it, when there are people in the world who are ready to let you have it all. You will know they love you when you are lying in bed and go to get up to start your day, and they pull you in closer to them. "Don't go," they will tell you, "let's just stay here together." You will bore your friends with all the stories of how great they are, just like you always do, but this time there won't be a sad undercurrent of "trying to win them over". These will be stories of afternoons spent at the park, and the flowers they brought you, and the texts they send you in the morning. Everything will finally be in the open. You don't have to worry if they'll like your friends, because you know they will. You don't have to avoid the subject of your family, because they hope to meet them someday. Everything will be honest, and you won't worry that the inconvenience of your real life will get between the very precarious thing you have together. They will want to be a part of it, meet every bit of it, because all of it is an extension of you. They will remember your special days, and be excited to see you, and want to touch every bit of you a dozen times before you go to sleep. You won't be afraid to wake up looking messy and pale, because they filter you through the same lens that you give to them. Even going to the grocery store will be a thrilling adventure. With them, you will have the privilege of seeing yourself the way they see you, and understanding that in every way you think that they are wonderful, they feel the same. No guessing, no insecurity. Just inspiration, passion. Just warmth. That, is how you know if someone loves you. - Chelsea Fagan

The last 2 weeks have been beyond a 🌍wind .... the happiness, joys, tears, adjustments, sleepless nights, recovering from c-section surgery, cold coffee, baby snuggles, toddler tantrums, sexy hospital undies, postpartum night sweats, crazy roller coaster hormones, nursing on demand, no makeup and dry shampoo kinda days. .
.
The last 2 weeks I've been totally 100 % present with my family and this new beginning. I wouldn't change anything. .
.
There no "real" glamour behind motherhood but there's fullness, happiness, unconditional love. .
.
I was never the gal who only gained 20lbs while growing a human. .
.
I was never the gal who rocked a 6 Pak weeks after giving birth. .
.
I'm looking forward to this new beginning as a mom of 2 perfect little girls, loving husband, inspiring other women and mothers around the 🌍, while regaining my mojo back. .
.
It all takes time, consistency, Belief, one day at a time, and enjoy the small things in life while aiming for that "bigger goal". .
.
I've committed to myself .... to do what fill my heart with love and joy. .
.
After seeing how BIG Avery looks after bringing Madison home. I've realized how fast these moments pass us by. How fast time goes. How much we can miss if we aren't present. How moments like this can never be replaced. Time is everything. .
.
With that .... I will be enjoying the next couple weeks with all the snuggles, messy hair, PJ wearing, cold coffee, in the moment kinda memories. .
.
Live in the moment .... LIVE full time 💕💕
Rock your own journey while being a momma...... oooo YES that's my dogs bed to the right of me 🤣😜🤣

Today was our last day at Blue Lake. Morning hangs by the water, tea on the beach, visit the museum, pack up the campsite, play in the lake, lay in the sun. Sounds great doesn’t it? It WAS great. I feel really, really thankful. But here’s the thing — no day is perfect, even on holidays. We are just a bunch of humans. Our kids fight. We get mad. We’re tired, because children are exhausting. There’s weird little hiccups along the way. We’re messy and impatient. But. We’ve got piles upon piles of love for one another. We’ve got Jesus and gorgeous grace. We keep our faces towards the sun, we get up when we fall, we keep laughing, we look for (and find!) the beauty in EVERY DAY, we don’t give up, we live big, we love big. We eat pizza and that helps too. 😊 This vacation has been absolutely wonderfully imperfectly beautiful. Feeling all the feels. ✨✨✨
Currently: Johnny the superhuman is driving Big Monica through the night. Cannot wait to hug our family in Saskatchewan tomorrow!✨✨✨ #galsdosummer2018

Do you find that you compare yourself to people all day long on social media? I do. And I’ve been finding myself doing it a lot more lately than I’d like to admit. Maybe it’s just a season of life, or maybe it’s actually some deep insecurities that I have to look at in myself but I’m trying to figure out why. I find myself comparing myself to moms on Instagram who have four children and seem like they have it all together. Even when I know that Instagram isn’t real and pictures are just the highlights, yet I still find myself comparing. One thing that helps me is when woman I admire on social media share their truth and their struggles. Makes me feel less alone. I share this because recently somebody reached out to me and said”how do you always have it all together. Your lucky, your life seems so perfect.” Seems was the word that hit me hard in her message. Everything on instagram “seems” a certain way but it’s most certainly not always rainbows and glitter. Her reaching out inspired me to share how imperfect I am. I am very lucky, I thank God every day for my life, my family, and my health. My life is far from perfect, it’s beautiful and messy and has its challenges. Marriage has its ups and downs. Motherhood is the greatest job I have ever had but I struggle hard at it. I’m not the perfect friend but I try hard to be the best one. Every day I learn something new about myself, marriage, and motherhood. I’m faced with new life obstacles daily. I try my hardest to have a positive attitude even on days when I get bad news or I feel like I don’t know how to flip my mood around. One thing I know is I’m not alone in the world of comparison and you aren’t alone either. Comparison is toxic and gets us nowhere. We need to lift each other up & stop being so hard on ourselves. Sending love to all of you. Thanks for letting me share my thoughts. This one has been weighing on me hard. ❤️❤️📷: @elizabethlooney_photography In love with my top by @lovestitchclothing 🌙🌟✨

These are the people we meet with once a week to dive into faith, marriage, parenting and how to be healthy individuals. We pray for each other, love each other, and are messy together. And together we’re getting to know Jesus better and becoming more like Him.
Jeff and I didn’t have a small group for years, but it was always something I really longed for. But I just didn’t know how to do it, especially with little kids. Some of our mentors really encouraged us to be apart of one, or just start one, about two years ago. They said that their small group was foundational for them as a couple and as a family of 6. When I asked how you do it with little kids they said, “small groups are messy. People are messy and add in little kids and it can be chaotic sometimes. Sometimes it means sacrificing- sacrificing your home or having your kids stay up late once in awhile or all chipping in for a babysitter. Be creative; figure out what works for y’all but don’t let the unknowns or messiness stop you. Community is worth it.” I can’t tell you how thankful I am for their encouragement and wisdom. It took about a year after that conversation to finally start meeting with this group- it took a lot of praying & planning but it really has felt God-ordained.
And I’m so thankful for these people who have become like family. They are committed, open, vulnerable and sacrifice. For our group, we decided to meet once a week at night and go through a study together and then the first week of every month we do a family dinner.
Just wanted to share this because I love these people, but also to encourage you to find a small group if you aren’t in one yet. Sometimes it just takes seeing someone else do it to realize you can too- that it’s worth it. To do life with people. To share. To speak truth to others. To encourage and pray for and seek God together. To open up your home or be committed to meeting with others whether it be once a week, twice a month or monthly. {and yes, we photoshopped a family in because they couldn’t make it this particular night but we missed them too much to take a photo without them! 😂}

I worked, got H to school, planned an event, and ran into my homie from around the corner. She needed something. I could feel it. I was preparing for my event, but it seemed like she needed an ear. So I gave her one.
She literally shared her heart with me. She talked about being adopted into a white family, being mistreated and abused... She talked about her life and some things she’s struggling with... We had a real heart-to-heart. Many of you saw a little of this on my story. Thank you for all of your kind messages.

I had an after thought: I got mad love for women. The shit we go through is hard. But we prevail. I am convinced that we are only able to be as amazing as we are because of the love and support of other women.
After our talk, I asked a few friends their advice on how I could support this young queen. Their responses were not to get involved, as if her life was too messy.
If you know anything about me, you know I do what I want, when I want & I don’t allow outside chitter chat to dictate how I move. I had to ask myself, where is your heart? Is your glass full? The answer to that is my glass is good and my heart is dope AF. So how can I not get involved??! As much as I’ve inspired her, she’s inspired me and I’m excited to take y’all along the journey! We’re meeting for dinner tonight & picking out some makeup for her! #wokebae turns action bae. Really trying to live that whole be the change you seek, thing. I have so many resources to share with her.

I am determined to win so I can help 500 women, who come from way less fortunate situations than I come from, win with me. When I say @majoringinmotherhood I mean it in all forms- even helping to mother the motherless. #momcrushmonday #adoption #majoringinmotherhood

The long tables with picture perfect decorations, the feasting, millions of gifts, and oh don't forget the dreamy Christmas cards depicting that perfect family. And trust me, I am not hating on any of that imagery necessarily, there are gifts along the way, and I'm thankful and rejoice with others. But I'm reminded this morning of how messy family can indeed be. How difficult it is for some to face each other this time of year. How the very people who were supposed to love, protect, and honor you/each other, have failed and continue to fail simply because they haven't yet come into the real freedom that God's love provides once we embrace His Cross. Also I think of how difficult it must be for the widows and widowers that once shared that beautiful table with their missing half, and how lonely and empty their house now feels. Or for the family facing terminal illness or financial difficulty. For many years I lived far from my family and had become accustomed to celebrating without them. And while God always provided people to love and care for me, the sting of their absence was always present. I guess I'm more aware of the implications of what it really means to be a family, and if you ARE REALLY A FAMILY, it's messy, it's painful, it's complex and it's even devastating at times. If it were not for Jesus I would have despaired long ago, but I'm reminded of all He has done, and how He's spared me from others and myself so many times. So with an overwhelming sense of gratitude this Christmas, my aim is to continually extend to my fellow journeymen, the same mercy I have been given. Because this life and all its bits have been give to us because of God's unfailing, never changing love, and so by His grace we receive and by His grace we give, none of this "stuff" is ours to begin with. What a liberating truth to live by. #blessedtobless #carissography

Last night I was telling my story on a Call {don’t mind my messy office} 😂with other business owners & I shared how Matt and I set goals for our future that included me staying home to raise our babies & Matt being the bread winner. ⠀

We both 100% agreed -but when I was living out what I thought was my dreams, it was not what I had expected. When coaching came into my life I started asking myself... is this all there is to life? Struggle to pay the bills and barely scrape by? ⠀

I saw all of these other women rocking their health and fitness businesses and they were happy, they were healthy and they had this amazing vibe that I was drawn like a magnet too. ⠀

I remember saying “why not me” why couldn’t I do it too!! I remember the day I stopped living in my COMFORT ZONE & I started taking action towards building some bigger dreams. ⠀This little Mom from Mars PA was on a mission to make an impact and inspire others to live their absolute best life through blogging, Facebook, live video and supporting my clients and team virtually!! ⠀
I envisioned a life where I still could be home, but contribute to the family. I envisioned being able to earn an income to pay off debts, to be able to take family vacations and not have to fight over money!! ⠀

I was willing to wake up every day and Work on my dreams because they were what made me happy and brought me joy!! ⠀

It made me think about how many women right here on social media and scrolling and dreaming but are living in their comfort zone and are truly afraid to take the leap of faith!! ⠀

But here is what I have learned- I never want to look back and wonder what if! So here I am every day- fire in my soul, love in my heart, hustle in my veins rocking out my business because I know that someone else needs me to shine a little inspiration into their day!! I want to that someone for someone else who makes them say “why not me too”!!! ⠀

Whatever you do.... do it with your whole heart 💓💓💓⠀
SO WHY NOT YOU TOO!?! ⠀

Enrollment is now open for my mentoring program starting Sept 10th. Complete my application in my bio to be considered for a spot on my team!! ⠀

My One Year Anniversary

Let’s leap for joy that we get another day to celebrate LIFE. Mark Twain captured it the best when he said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” When life sends you tests, you find out the WHY, Mark Twain was referring to in that quote pretty quickly.
You look deep within yourself to find out what really matters, who really matters and what is your true purpose.
The first thing I did was reframe certain things in my mind. The curves and pitfalls that came my way were tough and they left me scarred but the year that I experienced was nothing I could have ever predicted. It was LIFE affirming and incredible every step of the way. I learned from every single opportunity and I have cherished my time growing, learning, working through the messy stuff, understanding, and celebrating my wins. (And you have all helped me with those WINS I cannot thank you enough for your support)

Every interaction I have encountered this past year with my family, friends and colleagues has been a lesson that has taught me something and reaffirmed my belief that life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
So today I revel in the ordinary moments. Thank God for blessing me. Giving thanks everyday and practicing gratitude has also shifted my focus not on what my life lacks, but the abundance that is already there. (On a personal note thank you to my mom and dad, my husband for being my rocks. To my FOX5 family and my friend Jennifer Lahmers, I am so blessed to have you in my life )❤️ Cheers to many more years. #grateful #livelifehappy #liveyourbestlife #surroundyourselfwithpositivepeople #familyfirst #mindfullness #heartisfull #forgivethepast #newbeginnings

.
I joked writing a dog friendly guide to Santa Barbara was going to be the easiest gig of my life. “Step one: get a dog. Step two: go to Santa Barbara.” From wineries to restaurants to shops, every time we popped our heads in to ask if Tucker could come in with us, people gave us almost comical looks of confusion in return. “Duh!” seemed to be the universal answer.
.
But this city-slicking pup didn’t come all the way from Los Angeles just to stay indoors! We rolled around in the sand at Hendry’s Beach, plodded around off leash at the Douglas Family Preserve, and even went for a stroll at the @SantaBarbaraBotanicGarden, which I was super impressed allows leashed dogs to walk its gorgeous trails. I can’t imagine a more dog-loving destination.
.
Some of you may be wondering how this ridiculously good-looking cocker spaniel came to be in my life. I got Tucker when I was in high school, and I still can’t believe I convinced my parents to let us get a second dog (the first canine love of my life was Westley, an old rescue cocker from the pound) years before I was about to graduate. All I can say is parents let kids get away with murder when they are going through a messy divorce, ha.
.
For years my parents “split custody,” we joked, of Tucker. When I was home from school he was at my mom’s, but most of the time he was with my Dad, with home he always shared a mutual obsession. I definitely got my dog-crazy genes from my dad. When my dad moved to LA it was inevitable Tucker would go with him, which broke my heart even though I knew it was best. It took years to get used to my childhood home without the clickety clack of little paws.
.
Now I love visiting my dad and Tucker in LA and all our adventures there. I try to dognap Tucker for an adventure when I can so I can have his undivided attention again for a bit (otherwise he’s basically like, dad rules, you drool). We went to San Diego, now we’ve been to @VisitSantaBarbara, and while our December trip to Big Bear is on hold, it will happen. I’d love to take Tucker camping! And, well, everywhere really. Suggestions for where else to add to our list?

I promise it is not time to ignore them or call them names or say their spirit ain't right or say they have a negative spirit. Close friends and family members it is quite critical to not be catty or messy during this time. Sometimes your love one or close friend is crying out for help. Please be "oh so careful" with your words, attitudes and "so call discernment". True discernment will make you reach out to them and love on them more during this time. That negative interaction could be your last interaction with your love one or close friend. Being dismissive to a person with depression is very very dangerous. Be careful with your actions and words. Y'all people are hurting. Sometimes "my bad" and "I am sorry" is too late.

Charlotte Hardy from @charlotte_dalton_wines will be one of The Newcomers joining us at #offthevine in London later this month. We thought we’d share this delightful #throwbackthursday #Repost from @birthofcreative, a lovely introduction to Charlotte and her wines.
・・・
I had scheduled this interview to go up on the blog tomorrow morning, but I can’t help myself.
I first came across the joyful wines of Charlotte Hardy (@charlotte_dalton_wines ) back in 2016. Immediately drawn to the playfulness of the art that wraps the beautiful, expressive wines that lie within, I grabbed a bottle at the cellar and remember taking her ‘Love Me, Love You’ Shiraz home and wistfully drinking away over dinner and my all time favourite playlist.  Pure, simple, joy.  Her wines appear much like herself.  She doesn’t wear labels that point out exactly what or who she is, she doesn’t describe her wines as things that they aren’t; ‘unfiltered’, ‘naturally fermented’. She doesn’t need to.  She is who she is, they are who they are.  Beautiful, messy, calm, bold, original, feminine. Strong.
She successfully bottles character and soul, allowing people to share her craft with friends and family. In a male dominated industry she has managed to cement her story and her values, ever true to her wines purpose of bringing love and merriment. I am so excited to share this interview about her transition into motherhood with you all. There are so many important, touching and honest lessons to take from it. Thank you Charlotte! 🌱 Link in Bio.

You know I love sharing all the stuff that works great for my family and me, so here are some recent faves! @bombas socks are AMAZING. They don't slip, slide, or require pulling and tugging to put back in place--even the no show pairs. I love that for every pair purchased, one pair of socks is donated to the homeless. The link in my bio will get you 25% off your first order, so I highly recommend stocking up! We (as in all of us here, teens included) all want more already. 👣👣👣 I've also been putting together a mega cleaning products post with all the brands that made the cut for our very tough to please, highly messy household. This Ecover stain remover is one of the best. It took out beet stain from my white t-shirt like nobody's business (an occupational hazard while making the kale-beet salad a few posts back). Thanks to @jeanniejarnot for recommending it in Green Beauty Insiders on FB. What other cleaning products are you loving? Are you a DIY Queen? If so, you'll love @cleaning_essentials. Not into mixing it up for yourself (unless it's a beverage), check out @rebel_green @theoptimistco and...oops! I've said too much.🙈🙉🙊 Gonna go work on that post now.

To noisy kids, mess and a home filled with kids and dust and creativity and LIFE. To a body that’s healthy, albeit a little wobbly. To a supportive family who love me and get me, wonderful people I get to call friends. To strangers who somehow understand me. To work that challenges and excites me. To messy, noisy, stressful, crazy, unpredictable LIFE. I bet the people that don’t get many more tomorrows wish they’d had more of the small things, the NOW we’re all in, because together they make up the really big things. The important things. I am loved. I have good people to love. I am well. I am in the thick of it, of life. The sweet and the sour of it, and it’s glorious. Thanks Thursday. And margaritas for being a thing.

*
“I grew up” in a suburb of Milwaukee (Pack fan for life) and as an investment, my father owned a country club. Yes, you read that right, and it feels funny to type. I’ve never written about it because it’s a story I choose to include when I speak (especially) on finances. I share it because it shaped my entire life. We lost that country club along with everything else and never really got it back, but it gave me perspective. As a high school/college age girl, that marks you in profound ways and I’m so grateful for it because much of my message comes from those messy times where His word stands true, “He is the same yesterday, today and forever.”
*
And on a lighter note, I grew up with the most amazing mom, but when I was ten years old she read a healthy living book and in one day she cleared out all junk food, all processed foods - white bread, good cereal etc and went to feeding us “sticks and twigs.” (The family joke.) This is before clean eating was popular and I was not happy, so I’d ride my bike to the local convenience store, use all my allowance to buy junk food and eat it in one sitting right there on the curb. She never knew until I got sick.😂
*
What’s one unique fact about your growing up years? I’d love to hear.

I’m also here with a question for you other creatives. If you turned your hobby into your job do you struggle with what you enjoy doing now? I fill every spare moment I’m not with my family with work for my shop. I LOVE it but I also struggle to know what to do for fun now. Please tell me I’m not alone. .

Hey darlings! I’m back from a long weekend spent with family, a little behind with my scheduling as usual. My work week had a soft start this morning, with putting everything to place in my office after a minor renovation (more in stories!).
.
I love the feeling of a completely clean and organized space - it gives such clarity to my mind! Even though I know it will be messy AF by the next photo shoot 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ Right now it’s all tranquility and chill music in the background tho, the dog is sleeping and I have a matcha latte & a raw chocolate truffle next to me 👌🏼 Let’s have a look at this week’s schedule!
.
Thank you btw for your feedback in my last calendar post!! ❤️ I will for sure continue this little series, and perhaps add on some business related stories as soon as I have time ✌🏽
.
⌲ Tue: Today was mostly spent cleaning and organizing my office, then workout and studying for my driver’s license theory test. I just came home from a short trip, so it feels good to organize and ease into my routines again.
⌲ Wed: Morning driving practice, then theory test in the afternoon! In between: yoga, dog cuddles, reload 🧘🏻‍♀️
⌲ Thu: Photo shoot for an upcoming blog post, then I have my final driving test in the afternoon!!! 😱
⌲ Fri: Writing blog post aaaall day 👩🏻‍💻 And perhaps celebrate, depending on how the test went 😉🍾
⌲ Weekend: I have some loose plans that involves possible dinner party with friends and/or coffee & garden raid at some friends' house (hey @johannamariaolovsson lemme know if you’re free 😘).
Wishing you all an awesome week filled with creativity, inspiration, good food and the occasional cry, if needed 💫

Saturday was such a crazy day, so many family & friends came out to celebrate one of the most memorable moments of my life😭🎀💕. Found out we are having a baby girl xo🎉. I don’t think our moms or myself ever cried so much. The pictures after the reveal are just so messy but so sweet.

I never in a million years thought so many people would come and celebrate our baby👶🏻. It has truly been such a crazy ride so many ups and downs. My world has been turned a complete 180 but Im finally coming to realize I wouldn’t change a thing. The scariest “oops” in my life turned into the most celebrated thing in not only my life but for the lives of two amazing families. Is it still a bit scary? Yes, but I realize I’m the furthered thing from alone☺️.

Haven’t been to the gym in about a week with my exam, work, fighting a bit of a cold & the party. Which honestly hasn’t been great for my mental game but I am feeling better & ready to get back into the groove today. It’s hard stepping back and listening to your body but it has to be done. Thank you so much to everyone who’s reached out & been genuinely excited for us. It’s hard to believe a little baby brought so much love into my life already!

It’s not like this every second of everyday. But this was me when my body couldn’t handle it anymore.
Please remember how important it is to love your friends & family as much as you can. More importantly, allow yourself slices of serenity and happiness. You need it.
I encourage you to call your loved ones and share what you’re going through. You don’t have to walk through this by yourself. And don’t put all the weight on your shoulders. You have people at the ready to hold you, kiss you, listen to you and laugh with you! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

This is so true.. we never seem to post those messy moments on Instagram and trust me... we ALL HAVE them!
I once had a beautiful girl in our church say that she’d love to live in my home because our family looks so incredible. I laughed and told her that she would stay with us for a week and every perception of us would be shattered... 😂

Yes, there is genuine love, fun, affection, devotion, discipline, worship, unity, care and joy in our home.. but there are also moments of complete chaos that make me want to run away (and I only have ONE child - shout out to the mama’s who have more!❤️💪🏻). But as Ps. Phil and @lucindadooley shared today, our families are magnificent and worth fighting for! I am SO grateful for my beautiful family @astander & @charleygracestander - I couldn’t imagine doing life and building church with anyone else - and I’m SO grateful for a church family who model and show that real, authentic and healthy family is POSSIBLE!

Dear Carmen, Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and beautiful at the end. If you’re reading this again in time to come and life isn’t going the way you want it to, know that everything will turn out just fine. Don’t give up, don’t lose hope and turn to God – He is always with you. 2018 ... Dear Carmen,

Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and beautiful at the end. If you’re reading this again in time to come and life isn’t going the way you want it to, know that everything will turn out just fine. Don’t give up, don’t lose hope and turn to God – He is always with you.

2018 wasn’t an easy year. But the lessons and experiences you’ve gained through all the tears, disappointments, changes, and even loneliness was exactly what you needed to be who you are today. There were instances when people no longer had control over you and they tried to control how others see you. And there were times when others had to distort the reality of things just so that they can feel better. In those circumstances, the misinformation felt unfair and I know just how much you held back from retaliating. Instead, you chose to stay above it, trusting that those who needed to know, will know.

You’ve learned that silence is as deep as eternity and speech, shallow as time. And often, the most powerful statement is a dignified silence.

You’ve learned that forgiveness isn’t an occasional act, but a permanent attitude. And life becomes easier when you learn to accept the apology you never received.

You’ve learned that patience is the companion of wisdom. And a moment of patience in a moment of anger saves you a hundred moments of regret.

Of course, it wasn’t a completely horrible year. It was one that was also full of laughter, memories, friendships – new and old, and love. Yes, there were relationships you had to let go of even when it was easier not to. Even when you had doubts and questioned yourself a million times. It was for the better. And you know it is, when your family and closest friends affirms it over and over again.

Now that it’s 2019, don’t forget these lessons. Keep growing. Keep learning.

Here's to a stronger, braver, and kinder you. 💕

.
I’m 30ish years old, I come from a time where R&B and Hip Hop had full sentences, Walking home from school was safe and Discovery Zone was better than Chuck E. Cheese. .
I’m Mexican 🇲🇽 my family is from Mexico City 🌃. I’m currently in North Cal. .
I have a blog and Instagram page that focuses on Healthy living and #momlife .
My post include health, vegan foods, interest, parenting and tips.
.
My style of parenting is I’m gonna raise you like my Mexican Mamma taught me, but not trying to traumatize you because I love you baby... but you better know how to act. Because I’m not having no messy adult out there representing me, but also don’t grow up too fast because I’ll cry 😭 I love you baby. 😂 .

You can find me on Instagram Stories most of the time.

And finally WELCOME: #tomorrowsmom (follow the hashtag Yo!)

Video 3 of 3 🎥 These memories (just a few from the first few weeks since Jude joined our family) + this song...fill me up. 🙌🏻💙 Adam and I want to give our children both roots and wings, and I am trying my best to cherish the time we have to help strengthen their roots that connect them to us and each other. Tears are falling down my cheeks as I write this...being able to feel and witness such tender love between my people is such a gift, especially because we have pleeeenty of hard + messy moments too. Life with a newborn brings a love that's tangible, along with 4th trimester recovery + healing, sleepless nights + days, and a roller coaster of emotions that everyone feels while adjusting to a new normal, only to have to readjust again and again. It's all worth it. Worth everything. (Song: 'Hourglass' by Mindy Gledhill) #rainbowbabykjar #kjarfamilyvids #sharegoodness

There comes a point in life when fun no longer means clubbing, drinking or being out til 4AM.

She emerges back on #instagram after the burn! 🔥Welcome to my first Burning Man experience! Black Rock City
The most unique place on earth! It’s something no one can understand until they experience it for themselves! The goal here was to feed my soul, recharge my spirit, my creativity, awaken my third eye, and be reminded of magic! Thanks to these people my BM journey is one I’ll never forget! First you will have to give up the convenience of everyday life as you enter survival mode but you are not alone..every soul out there lends a helping hand. Everyone is equal, no one better than another and everyone has a welcoming smile! A death and rebirth process that allows you to journey through every emotion possible! I find it so ironic how people can become so beautiful and otherworldly, when they embrace being vulnerable, messy and recognize the illusion of control. I’m #eternally #GRATEFUL for the memories & all the beautiful souls that entered my life this past week. Thank you #family @humanothetribe a community based on self awareness, loving, learning and evolving together. No words can describe how free you feel when riding your bike through the Playa! What makes us all so special is the way we love, the way we give our hearts and soul #unconditionally ❤️Love you all! Thank you Universe! #burningman2018 #burningman #art #freedom #love #grateful #powerful #warrior #rebirth #magic #irobot #blackrockcity #brc #mayanwarrior

👑
Branding and marketing runs through my blood. 🖥
I’m obsessed with turning businesses into the most attractive choice within their industry. ⚡️
I don’t like rules and almost never abide by them. 👎
I don’t follow the status quo - in fact I usually search for the opposite. 🏃‍♀️
I’m logical, empathetic, passionate, transparent and genuine.
🎩
I’ll always tell you what I’m thinking and feeling. 😉
I’m human and make mistakes, but learn quickly and take responsibility for my actions.
😝
I ask A LOT of questions. 🧐
I don’t guess my way through life or wait around for the answers to appear at my doorstep.
🦁
If I want something I find a way to get it. 🔮
I don’t take a second of my time, happiness or life for granted…

I don’t work for free. I’ve worked way too hard for all the skilled experience I have, and know my value. 👩‍💻
I don’t hold grudges. I hate obscurity and I don’t tolerate passive aggressive behaviors.
🚫
I don’t play games. I’d rather read a book.
📚
My weakness is ice cream - torrone, rocky road, coconut or matcha to be exact.
🍦
100% believe in aliens. Space is too big not to believe.
🛸
By definition I’m considered a “heliophile” - lover of sun, light and warmth.
☀️
I live to travel and see as much of the world as possible. When work and travel mix, I’m the happiest person on the planet.
🌎
I’m a romantic. When I fall in love, I fall hard. My fiancé is my rock, also my high school sweetheart. ❤️
I am NOT religious and don’t believe in one faith over another. I am however deeply, deeply spiritual. I believe in energy.

Cute little cats > messy, loud dogs any day!
🐱
I value family, friends, humor, fun, love, passion, genuine authenticity and intelligence. 🧠
I dream of a world where we can all live in peace, happiness and abundance - and I continue to do whatever I can to make this happen. ✌️
I believe you design your life intentionally and I’m obsessed with helping others do the same. 💝
I believe that entrepreneurs have the ability to change the world - which is why it’s my mission to help others take their talents, turn them into profitable businesses and design better futures for us all 👌

I’ll show you the finished product, but it’s too scary to invite you into my process. It’s messy and you might not admire me if you really got to know me. It’s felt safer to keep others at arms length bc then they can’t hurt me, they can’t judge my true self and they can’t expose me. Does that sound familiar? I’ve been learning that isolation is the devils playground. It’s hard to trust people with our weakness and vulnerabilities, but there are good women who need you just like you need them. The more ground we take in our calling, family and faith, the more we need to surround ourselves with prayer warriors who will take up the shield of faith for us.... and be a safe place to be free and messy. Kindness heals us. I’ve experienced some of the most powerful ministry through friends who don’t even flinch or doubt me with I mess up.
I want to thank YOU for your love when I shared such a scary post Monday. I didn’t look at my page for two hours, I was so nervous! You all inspired me not to touch up this photo. 💖

I pray that you will #sparklewithpositiverelationships and let some key people into your process, even when it’s scary. Tag some friends you see and what to encourage!

My epic #fitgirllittlesister @fitgirl_erickajacobs me to name 10 things that make me happy. Te picture is of one of my favorite little dancers from my studio at recital! So 10 things that make me happy ( in no particular order):
1. My amazing family that supports me no matter what! I'm so blessed to have wonderful parents, grandparents, and two crazy little brothers!
2. My wonderful boyfriend, who gets my insane ramblings, over dramatic brain, and obsessive nature over things being perfect.
3. Dance, I can not imagine ever giving it up! It's such a huge part of who I am, and it really helps me find myself when things get messy!
4. Nursing school, although it makes me want to pull my hair out! It's beyond worth it!
5. My puppies!
6. Norman reedus and the walking dead! Not that it's a thing I can't live without but seriously how do you not love this show? Or any show with Norman reedus in it! Seriously gorgeous man!
7. Farm life makes me happy! I can't imagine living anywhere else!
8. Summer! I love the sun and warmth of the summer!
9. Water, specifically the ocean, but I'll take the pool any day!
10. Music makes me happy, in any form whether I'm playing or listening to it! @fitgirlandsexy36 @fitgirl_vicky what are 10 things that make you happy??!

However, family members are awesome, each person so unique with their own personalities. Family members are also flawed and very imperfect. It takes courage and effort to learn to work through hurt, misunderstanding, conflict and resolve. Yet working through the pain leads to healing and understanding. No matter what your family has been through, God is still in the restoration business. Don’t ever believe that there has been wasted pain in your family. God’s grace will make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends us. We must remember that just as the Lord forgave us, we have to forgive others. #family #familygoal #nooneisperfect #God #restoringfamilies #forgiveness #believe #ittakescourage #purpose #Godisfaithful #Grace #dontgiveup #encouragement #prayer #faith #love #understanding #unity #unconditionallove #iamkeymontana #mondaymotivation #repairing #healing #families #familytime

A fair few of you have probably heard our story way too many times haha! but I’m going to tell it again because it’s magic! .
Matt told me later that two weeks before he’d met me he had decided he wanted a girlfriend. The month before I had written out all these fears I had about meeting someone and had rewritten them into positive beliefs. Next thing you know I’m on a plane with @gabriellevinden heading to the first and only Auzy fruit fest (I think it was thrown purely for us to meet 🙈) and the first night @teddysphotos (I mean @mattbellme Lol he looked just like Ed Sheeran!) walks up to me and @gabriellevinden making some joke about salsa hands as we were eating raw vegan salsa (absolutely delicious!) We talked about music and he invited me to sing with him the next night as it was his job to organise the music. .
He literally turned up 5 minutes before we were to go on stage (had been picking mangos all day he said... #fruithippie) - also he didn’t recognise me because my then curly hair was no longer in a head band. Let’s just say it was wild 😂
Any way after figuring out which songs we both knew and that I could sing in tune he played guitar and I sang and the fireworks went off all around us. .
The next day I Facebook stalked Matt and discovered he was ALSO from Zimbabwe and became incredibly curious about his Zim story, and him...
.
We stayed up till 8am talking about it and patapatas and narchies and how messy our family’s got after moving.
Apparently Matt drove around all that day with his heart thumping in love. He brought me a coconut blossom as the first flower he gave me and the rest really is history.
I am so grateful for all the universal lining ups that brought us together babe! What a story! And three years later, a van build, traveling across Australia living in said van for a year and then moving halfway across the world to immerse ourselves in Europe... I’ll just quote from my song “Treehouse” off my new album...
.
“life with you is a dream and I don’t want to wake up” .
@mattbellme You’ve always felt like home to me 💕

I started supporting his sports with 6 am hockey games as kids, taking every stat and video taping every game. This picture was taken 4 years ago. The regionals where he put on amazing show on a 20 min Chipper workout where he worked so hard the rowing machine actually came up off the ground while I screamed to keep going tears of joy and support rolling down my face! I am so proud of this guy. There’s some special bond you’ve got when you spend your childhood together laughing, playing, goofing around, travelling the world, sharing ideas and mostly our dreams. From kids throwing bottles on the ground while watching ninja turtles to being my protector while I danced in the living room to entrepreneur lives to great conversations in the car on the way to the gym to grinding workouts to making each other laugh when life gets messy. Love you bud and I am so proud of you always. I’ll always be that crazy sister screaming “go Jon go” at the top of her lungs proudly telling everyone “that’s my handsome brother”. (Seriously he’s so handsome, inside and out) #family #bloodfamily #familyiseverything #alwaysbesideyou #alwaysfamily #regionals #crossfitfamily #crossfitregionals #siblinglove #nationalsiblingsday

MOMENTS | It’s these moments right here that I’ll treasure forever; these moments that I thought were gone forever, or at least the rest of their childhood. I wish I had known theses moments would go by in the blink of an eye. I wish I had known they’d give way to the ‘I know everything’ attitudes, cold shoulders, impulsive actions, and a whole new set of worries. I wish I had known back then how much I’d miss messy kisses, long hugs, early mornings, craft time, fights over toys, and the never ending need of mama’s attention. I would have welcomed those kisses a little more, held on a little longer (and tighter), made a bigger mess during crafts, laughed at some of the fights, and given all of my attention to all of those little things. Simply put, I would have stopped to enjoy my babies a little more. •
From now on when I am blessed with these rare moments I’ll capture them when I can, enjoy them while they last, and treasure them forever. •
Mamas, love your babies a little harder today (and every day) and tell them you love them as much as you can. These sweet moments dwindle away in the blink of an eye and you’ll find yourself missing them. You’ll find yourself keeping a look out for these rare moments and, I promise, when they happen your heart will fill and ache with so much love. •

Her true love and understanding for all the kinds of love is awe inspiring and I hope they they resonate with you the same way they did with me. Thank you @jenibesworth for sharing with us how you #createthelove.

“i’m in love with love.
parent-child love.
family love.
friend love.
long-distance-never-met-in-real-life love.
elderly couple love.
platonic love.
person behind the counter of a convenience store love.
romantic love.
sexy love.
basically, all the loves.

i draw hearts around everything & i have that glorious word tattooed on me in 3 different places.
but the truth is, for years i equated real & meaningful love with having a partner. i felt i wasn’t wholly surrounded by it or able to fully believe in it, if i didn’t have someone to show for it.
i know, i know, total garbage.
but sometimes we have to look in a different direction to see things from another perspective.
to quote my favourite movie, love is (actually) all around.
words on the wall.
smudgy fingerprints on a mirror.
hearts drawn in a dusty table.
crinkled jammies.
morning breath.
messy hair.
a house that smells good.
letters delivered door to door.
collecting dimes.
friending bees.
a squiggly drawing of you plus me.
that big true friend laugh that steals your breath.
arms wrapping you from behind.
love notes tucked into every corner.
our bedtime ditty sung an umpteenth time.
words slipped into lunches.
kisses on lips.
takeout dinner, warm maple syrup whiskey sips.
hands held, smiles at neighbours.
summer night sunset porch sits.

sometimes i don’t know where the list begins & where it ends.”

.
when I think about my favorite books, it's most often those featuring multiple POV working together as a messy yet friendshippy squad.
.
It's always so much more fun to have not one special snowflake dealing with a problem on their own (while also falling in love *sigh*) but a diverse group of people making one messy found-family.
.
More books featuring excellent friendships not in the picture:
- pretty much every Katrina Leno book
- Robin Hobb's books
- Wayward children
- Killing Gravity
- Saving Francesca + The Piper's Son
- Space Unicorn Blues
- Twelve Kings in Sharakai
- Company Town
- Small, Angry Planet
- The Raven Cycle
- The Calculating Stars

It's Mothers Day weekend, Andy's birthday and the 19 year anniversary of the day that we met and we are juggling all kinds of “stuff” this weekend. We are juggling fun stuff like celebrations, love, family and parties. But we are also juggling the hard stuff like the continued desire to grow our family while emotionally healing after three miscarriages all while I fight (or embrace) the grief, disappointment and ache that randomly seems to spill out of me in the most inconvenient moments. I am juggling overwhelming gratitude for my amazing mom and how much I love and adore her and feeling even more gratitude for the life changing AWESOME experience of being Lucy's mom. I am juggling the celebration of my wonderful husband’s birthday but he is also battling his own grief because he misses his mom who does not walk this earth anymore. Needless to say, things are sensitive over here. I miss the days when I was naive about how tender and triggering holidays can be. I miss the days when Mothers Day felt like a silly holiday created by Hallmark- back then my only worries were making a card and going out to breakfast. But here I sit, feeling all messy and complicated while I juggle the joy and pain. And as much as I wish some things were easier, I am grateful for the *knowing* that the hard stuff can exist right along side the really good stuff. I always thought hard things would break me and I guess they can and sometimes they do but what I am learning with age, is that the hard stuff can also walk hand in hand with all the wonderful, good, joyful, yummy parts of life. And as much as I hesitate to publish this post (because it isn’t all sunshine and unicorns on Mother's Day), I posted it anyway. I know there has to be someone out there who feels just as messy and tender as I do this weekend and sometimes it feels really good to know that you are not alone in your mess. To the moms out there I salute you, I stand with you and I celebrate with you this weekend! To anyone out there walking through loss or hard stuff that bubbles up around this time, I am sending you a virtual hug. You are not alone.❤️ #alisabwantstokeepitreal

I've been thinking alot about family lately and the fact that when we are kids theres so much being absorbed into our subconscious that later on create patterns we must unlearn in order to stay sane healthy and happy. I find it can be quite easy to overthink that and it can get pretty messy, kinda like pulling out all of ones baggage and laying it all on the ground before us, simply aknowledging that it's there and wondering what to do with it

Its much easier to blame our upbringing for our negative patterns and behaviour than to assume ones total control over their own life and that's been something I've been trying to work on alot lately. I realised that on focussing all of my energy on my pain and on the subtelties of the past, trying to put the puzzle pieces all together to understand why I am the way I am and why I feel the way I feel; ultimately, I was really just reinforcing that pain and giving it more power over me. Over the present me and present emotions. I've been realising how negative behaviours have a ripple effect creating very real negative patterns that not only affect us but our physical health and others around us... I felt detachment from the idea of family or friends for a while. But I don't think I left travelling to run away from it necessarily, rather to face my truths and be alone enough to know myself, without the influence of other people's ideas or opinions of me.

Through this journey I've felt so alone. But slowly, I've been remembering and realising all that is essential, all that I need. I feel I've been on the path I was meant to be on, that i created for myself and that I wouldn't be who I am if it weren't for every growing part of it
I'm realizing the importance of family, the gift of creation itself, of life, the immense responsibility that comes with it. Im learning to honor my tribe, my ancestors, my family, my genes.. I am learning to be proud of it. To laugh at it! To laugh at all the different minds, different opinions, different ways of being and reacting and learning to recognize that every bit of it is expressed out of love no matter which mask it choses to wear on the surface 🙏🌻✨ Honor your tribe, forgivethem

We are back just in time for the start of school! 🍎 Still not over these days of sweet and savory memory making in our family H⛵️PPY PL⛵️CE! We may have left paradise, but the best part of the whole trip got to come home with me! Not just because the sites are divine and the adventures are marvelous, but because of who I am with!! 🙌🏻❤️🏖 Family is EVERYTHING!! It certainly hasn’t been this pretty behind the scenes the last few years, BUT...just as painting a masterpiece isn’t a beautiful process...neither is family...it’s at times messy, dirty and down right hard, but in the end something wonderful is created and it’s worth it all a million times over! Here’s to fighting for family and loving one another through flaws, failures, hardships and growth. Beauty from ashes. So grateful for my family and for the unity, healing and undreamt-of redemption we’ve beheld!! “Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for JOY and be glad all our days. Give us gladness IN PROPORTION to our former misery! Replace the evil years with good! Let Your work be shown to Your servants. And let Your wonderful greatness be shown to our children! May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us!” Psalm 90:14-17. Thankful HE IS replacing the evil years with SO MUCH GOOD! His promises truly never return void!! Prayerful, hopeful and expectant for what the Lord has in store for Ellis and I, our kiddos and our family this coming year! 💫 #mycupoverflows #thankful #sacredtime #somuchtocelebrate #together #familyiseverything #truelove #loveourfamily #seastheday #caymanislands #happyplace #backtoreality #backtoschool #goldenthread

And the truth is, we’re all smiles here, but we fought SO SO much that day. (Not on our first date, haha. Rather, on the day we recreated this photo.) Our adoption has just failed, and after two years, our family went from 8 to 5. I’d suffered a mini stroke only a few months prior. We’d been traveling the US (living out of a van) for about 6 months at this point, and we were both just so broken and so so spent. And on this particular day, all that broken-ness, and all that exhaustion was just spilling out, all over the place.

And I’m telling you this because I want everyone out there to know that it’s ok for marriages to have challenging days (or weeks, or months, or seasons). If you’re in a rough patch, that simply means your relationship is NORMAL. Sometimes, marriage is hard. Sometimes, it’s not. That’s the gig. And it’s ok if sometimes you yell and scream (or even want out of the whole deal), because that’s pretty dang human, if you ask me. What matters, is that, ultimately, you recognize in your spouse—a partner, a safe space, a refuge or—whatever it is YOU value in your own marriage. Everything is constantly changing. And how you feel today, you won’t feel tomorrow. So when you want to strangle him/her, take a deep breath. This too shall pass. Cross my heart.
Today, as we celebrate 16 years of heaven and hell, TOGETHER, I want to echo what Richie said in his anniversary post, because I think it’s THE most beautiful tribute to our marriage I’ve ever heard. “You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.” Thich Nhat Hanh

This is why we work. This is why we last. This is why I’m happier now, after 16 messy years, than ever before. Because Richie loves ME. Not some version of me. But his love and respect are as fluid as my spirit. Ever bending and morphing to accommodate my ever evolving self. And I offer him the same. And ultimately, that respect, that space to grow and change, that unconditional love.... it’s... magic. Just like us.

Richie, I love you more.than.anything and more.than.ever. Happy anniversary!

Video 2 of 3 🎥 These memories (just a few from the first few weeks since Jude joined our family) + this song...fill me up. 🙌🏻💙 Adam and I want to give our children both roots and wings, and I am trying my best to cherish the time we have to help strengthen their roots that connect them to us and each other. Tears are falling down my cheeks as I write this...being able to feel and witness such tender love between my people is such a gift, especially because we have pleeeenty of hard + messy moments too. Life with a newborn brings a love that's tangible, along with 4th trimester recovery + healing, sleepless nights + days, and a roller coaster of emotions that everyone feels while adjusting to a new normal, only to have to readjust again and again. It's all worth it. Worth everything. (Song: 'Hourglass' by Mindy Gledhill) #rainbowbabykjar #kjarfamilyvids #sharegoodness

Silence. •
Sometimes silence is a really good answer!


It has been an uneventful time since I last went through my series of testing from my “scare” in August. Cancer has been silent. And it has been a good thing. I have pushed it to the borders of my life. It has been 28 months of remission! •
Life goes on, time has become a bit less of a luxury, and my heart is a little less broken. Life is still messy as our family pushes onward in this life, but we still persist through this season. •
A new start is coming. Marked first by the birth of a child and then the turn of a calendar year. Celebration is coming! (I love a good celebration!...did I mention my birthday is coming up on the 21st???)

So to all of those here with me today, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I love you all for your compassion and impact on my life. ❤ Kristen

I love hands everywhere, kids who are allowed to be kids and the pictures to tell a story. Because none of us are perfect, so why should our images be? We are all changing. All growing and all evolving constantly. So are the people around us. Nothing stays like this forever and when the time has passed there is no getting that back. Sometimes you need to take a step back to take it all in. That is a huge reason why I do what I do. Capturing a moment in time, not a pose. Capturing your world and no one else’s. I love that every family I photograph is different, not one shoot is exactly the same. You could even be in the same location, but because the focus is on Your moments, Your personalities and Your Connection.....that is how we start to tell YOUR story. Could it be time to start telling yours? Swipe across to see a few more of my faves from @lorenlockyer and @darrenlockyerofficial photo shoot x

Is where im at in the present moment the exact idea of happiness I had for myself ten or five years ago? Hell, one year ago? No. It’s better. Because I’m alive, and there is a blessing in every breath.

Thank You Lord God for giving me another year of life as you have been the strength that carried me through 🙏🏽 ALL THIS IS BECAUSE OF YOU!

Thank You to my FAMILY 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 for being my biggest supporters. Thank You for loving me when you hate me. Thank You for teaching me how to love. Thank You for giving me people i look up to. I can’t ever say this enough but THANK YOU, Momma, Aunties, Twissy Sissy, Uncles, Pops, and Cousins! 😘

Thank You to my FRIENDS, ya’ll im so lucky to have 🍀 Thank you for showing me how to live a life that’s worth remembering! I will forever remember your faces wherever part of the world I end up, or whatever situation I fall into. Thank you for the times that you were my home. 🤗

And of course to the person that gave me the best birthday surprise ever. HUHUHU! I CRY! 😭 YOU SO SWEET LA! THANK YOU! 🌹 for everything that you did since i met you, a million THANK YOUs will never be enough. But when it comes to you, I’LL TRY. Thank you for the love, for giving me your truth. Ours was not the “love at first sight” or the other typical ones. Our was unexpected, difficult, raw, and simply human. Let’s be imperfect together. Let’s do this, and embrace all the messy and beautiful things that happen when you give your soul to someone just as flawed as you. Let’s love, damn it. Let’s love like crazy. Your pure and tranquil love roars louder than my demons. And for that, I am continually and eternally grateful. ♥️ So much love to you! 🤗😘 ⠀

This year’s takeaway? To be candor, we will never experience something incredible every day if we are always waiting for something big to happen. It is through the small things that all of the great things flourish, and while it may seem small; the ripple effects you will see by changing your attitude about them, will be extraordinary. 🌅

I AM BEYOND BLESSED! ✨

I thank all of the angels (my friends/family) that have crossed paths with me and shown me their endless love and support. And I thank the universe for always listening and proving my doubts wrong every time.

Cheers to a new year of growth, prosperity, and the pursuit of happiness.

We are in the middle and let me tell you what...it’s not always my favorite part.

Who doesn’t love a good beginning where you have your eye on the prize as you begin to excitedly accelerate towards it? Endings usually symbolize mountain tops or finish lines or some voice saying “you have arrived at your destination” whether it’s a robot or the one in your heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The middle though? This is the uncomfortable part but also, probably the most familiar for all of us. Maybe it’s because beginnings and endings are brief while the middles take up most of the chapters. And these chapters involve trials, waiting, fears, insecurities, falling, getting back up, struggling, wrestling & trying over and over again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You wanna know the best part of the middle that is absolutely vital for our souls? The middle is the only place one can train for resilient character...it doesn’t come in the beginning or end but in the messy middle where life is unfolding...where magic is happening. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If we gave up when our marriage was at its lowest, we wouldn’t be experiencing the redemptive love story we are today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If we gave up dreaming of being debt free when we moved to Uganda with $65,000 looming over our heads that we knew we wouldn’t be able to touch with a ten foot pole for years, we wouldn’t be dancing on the mountain top right now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if we give up hope now as we wait for our adoption story to finish being written, we are robbing ourselves of experiencing the fullness of Gods promises for our family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You guys, the middle is messy but it’s true what Brené says (I mean everything she says is gold amiright?) THIS is where the magic happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keep dreaming. Keep rising. Keeping holding onto hope. Keep believing it for yourself. Keep surrendering. Keep GOING! Please keep going. Please don’t give up on your ultimate joy and freedom, whatever that may be for your story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My name is Becky Higgins and memory keeping is my jam. ALL things memory keeping. Taking pictures, doing something WITH pictures, pairing pictures with stories, telling our stories, preserving our memories. All of it. So what sets us apart from any other company that has to do with memory keeping? Project Life®. It’s a game changer. It’s a solution to so many problems that scrapbookers face. This way of scrapbooking SIMPLIFIES the process and eliminates so much guesswork and, honestly, it’s the no-brainer way for anyone who has an interest in scrapbooking but feels overwhelmed, to START. It’s available in physical, digital (for computer), and app (for mobile devices) formats. This is the meat & potatoes of our business.
.
.
But we’re so much more than memory keeping. We’re a lifestyle brand. In our almost 9 years of Becky Higgins LLC — and in my 23-year career — the whole lifestyle component to my brand has been significant. You’ll find me sharing about family, home decor, style, organization, faith, and basically anything that personally interests me. My social media & my blog have always been a mixed bag … a blend of personal + business … and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. We have launched an online classroom. We sell fashion accessories. We have home decor items. We are on Facebook Live about weekly. We offer printing (pictures and photo books) through the Project Life App AND at DigitalProjectLife.com. We’re exploring many other exciting projects and initiatives right now.
.
.
I love this work. I love my team; they’re like family to me. I love this community. I love YOU! I work hard, guys. And I pray a LOT about the business. This work is a richly beautiful and sometimes messy part of who I am. This work has helped to shape the person that I am, and has offered me endless opportunities to grow. So grateful you’re here. Really. 💛

Within minutes, I received a text saying that my nephew had just been born 30 minutes prior. I was relieved and excited all at once. Because she was okay, the baby was okay, everyone was okay and I was grateful for that. You see, my sister lost a sweet little baby 10 months ago when I was in Bali. It was devastating for all of us because when you see a heart beat, you know that life is there. And when it stops, the world seems to as well.
.
One moment can change everything. And last night, while I was giving thanks for my family, I realized that there are so many people out there that miss out on that moment. They get so caught up in themselves that they forget to call. They get too busy to simply check in on those around them. They allow their hurt to navigate their relationships versus the way they’ve learned to forgive. And because of that, they forget to love.
.
I’m not here to tell you how bad you are if you’ve done any of these things. I’m not here to point fingers or to make you feel shame. I am here to simply help you to turn the light on. To wake up, to realize that it’s time for you to show up for your life but you can only do that, if you’re willing to give your life away. And giving your life away means constantly loving people well. It’s imperfect, it’s messy, and it’s hard but it’s worth it. Remember to tell those around you that you love them. I love my family, the ones that are no longer here and the ones who are. The little one I’ve never met and those I’ll grow old with. Those who share my blood and those who don’t. I love you. Around the world and back, literally.

The Vulnerability Report: A Conversation With Bangkok | To the family I made in Bangkok, I owe you a few words. I can’t call you all friends anymore because for the past four years you all really made such a foreign land feel like home.
Let me explain. Right before it was time to leave Bangkok for a family vacation/departure trip with Shantay & Te’Juan, I got myself into an interesting situation. It was really messy. Like super messy. My wife Shantay is phenomenal and got me out of that mess with the help of a few other amazing people. Everything was resolved peacefully. My intentions were to come back to Bangkok before my exhibition here in Tokyo and say my proper “farewells” to you all before SEEK.LOST.START but I was advised to just stay out the country. “THANK YOU” from the bottom of my heart, “THANK YOU” for teaching me so much. You all have contributed to the human being I am today. I’ve learned so much from each and every one of you. I couldn’t leave Asia without saying “THANK YOU.” Not only did you all make it home for me, but my family as well. Was it rough at times, of course, but now that I reflect on the time I can truly say that everything was totally worth it. I’d do it all over again. Thai culture as well as Asian culture as a whole, has had a huge impact on my life, and work.
As I depart Asia, and return back to the US, I’ve made a promise to myself to remain a global citizen. I’m positive I will see you all again! Continue to do what you guys do in Bangkok. I’m taking so many lessons back with me that you all exude everyday but resilience seems to be the biggest feeling on my heart at the moment.
I love you all my friends. I’m afraid to try to name everyone because my brain is kind of fried at the moment and I’ll forget people but I’m sure. I trust that you all know who I’m talking to. I’ve met some amazing people from other countries traveling through Bangkok too. I’m talking to you as well.
I wrote this in Tokyo, but my hearts in Bangkok.
Kob Kun Krub Krung Thep Maka Nakhon. 🙏

I’ve done it all before, I had a curated feed full of the photos I edited with the same filter I saw other people using. I had the feed full of photos I knew most people wanted to see. I had a blog full of family updates that still felt like my space but Instagram was the space everyone went to on a daily basis so it sort of felt like there was more pressure here. But that very first mention of “fitness” in this space was uncomfortable for many people, myself included. After a whole lot of negative messages, emails and comments I had to make a decision and in the end I chose to post whatever I wanted. I chose to be more transparent, to let go of perfect and focus on the people who mattered and myself at the forefront. Because I am worth more than likes and a follower count. I decided I didn’t want to be someone I wasn’t anymore at least here, and if I didn’t share all of it, good, bad, messy, progress etc then what was the point anyways. So here we are, I think a lot of those who were uncomfortable are gone, and the people left are a lot more like me than not, and that’s really exciting to me. It won’t always be perfect. My blog and Instagram are also my full time job, so there will be sponsored content, but I will be transparent about it as I always have been and continue to work wirh the brands I love and actually use. I run and workout almost every day, so that will be here too. Along with the other things I love most, like my family, fashion, makeup, my house, the renovations that are to come, food...oh yes there will always be food! But most importantly there will be change because I’m not a one dimensional human being. I change, I set goals, I have ups and downs and successes and failures. So if you’re in it with me, thank you very much for hanging around and sending love and support along the way. And if you’re not, that’s ok too, it’s out on the table so you know what to expect ☺️the beauty of this space is that there’s something for everyone. #myhappyplace #thankyou

Im definetly not a perfect mum….& Hazel definetly isn’t a perfect baby….I know there is no such thing as a “perfect mum” or “perfect baby” really. But scrolling through Instagram on a daily basis would usually make me believe otherwise…..

I find myself looking at flawlessly made up mums with matching baby outfits & perfect hair and think HOW…..serisouly someone please tell me HOW!!! I do love instagram & social media, don’t get me wrong…..but I get sick of seeing “staged” photos of perfect family’s with seemingly perfect lives and babies who never cry! I mean let’s get real, crying babies aren’t fun.....& something you get criticised for on social media & real life!.”why is your baby crying”, “omg you’re a bad mum, your baby is crying”.......but it’s life, all baby’s cry! 
For any struggling mummas out there who feel like they aren’t doing enough or aren’t cutting it compared to the instagram mums…..this one is for you!

its almost 11am & I still haven’t showered, still trying to finish my breakfast which is now stone cold & do housework with a teething baby. Hazel is amazing majority of the time (im not compalining) but she’s clingy…..like I can’t put you down for a second clingy....But thats ok, it’s probably just a phase. I had around 4hrs sleep last night & my head is thumping. 
I haven’t washed my hair in almost 2 weeks, just haven’t had time.
My house is a constant mess even though, I feel all I do everyday is clean it! 
I almost NEVER wear makeup, brush my hair or wear perfume. Id love to look polished and glam for when hubby comes home from work but majority of the time im too knackerd! Id love my hair to be out and sleek….but I know Hazels only going to grab a huge handful and pull with all her might! 
Id love to be in the latest fashion everyday & post amazing outfit photos to my gram…..but I literally live in my track pants everyday

Mummas….You’re not alone. Don’t believe everything you see online! You’re killing it!💪🏼 don’t worry if your house is messy, you’re messy, your baby is messy….because lets be honest. Thats life. Parenting is HARD & on the rare occasions you get the opportunity to glam…..Youll enjoy the process & appreciate it 100x more💕🌈

If judged by the laws of capitalism (which lets face it, govern our notions of art and value) it's a dime a dozen, and thus not serious, or worthy of consideration. But let's consider what family photography really is about: pretty pictures and true moments, yes. But beyond that; what is it really? It is, quite literally, the turning of the lens onto spiritual beings, sweet and beautiful and living creatures who love, and give, who are ordinary and are flawed, who and take, and break down, and who fight and love again, and who are courageous beyond measure.
If asked what we value most, near everyone will say family. And Family Photography is turning the lens on that which is most important to us, showing us all the ture and essential beauty, the flawed, messy, imperfect perfection of us all. It is the illustration of the idea that I AM THAT TOO, I am everything in the universe and it is all me.
All of this is to say, I love my job. And thank you, every single person who has allowed me to see.

This Thanksgiving I had the opportunity to spend time with family and think about the things I’m most grateful for. One of the things at the top of the list would be my family and their incredible ability to love unconditionally. A while ago I began dating an amazing girl who I’m head over heels for. For some in my family this was devastating. Growing up in the LDS church there’s a huge focus on family and the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman. Because of the feelings I had and my personal beliefs I chose to leave the church. This was incredibly hard for my family to understand. They were hurt and confused and didn’t understand the way I felt. They could’ve reacted with anger as so many parents do. They could’ve preached or tried to tell me that it was a choice. But they chose to react with love. That doesn’t mean that everything was perfect. There was fighting, anger and hurt on all sides. But at the end of every conversation I was told how much I was loved. I don’t agree with the church’s teachings and they dont agree with my lifestyle and that could’ve easily torn us apart. For a while I wondered how people with such different views could come to an understanding. We talked a lot. I told them my beliefs and they shared theirs. They gave me scriptures and talks to read and I did. I asked them to try and understand and they attended conferences, talked to other parents and read books about it. They have tried to let go of the ideas they had for how my life should be and chose to love me as best they can. Things aren’t perfect, they never will be. But I see so many families desperately try to change their children and it breaks my heart. They use their “love” to manipulate and try to change them. But my family showed me what it means to love like Christ. It’s selfless and kind and has no limits. And to me that’s what it means to be a family. To be a group of individuals with completely different beliefs and ideas coming together and loving each other completely for everything that we are. To laugh, cry, forgive and learn together. Families are messy and can be hard sometimes. But I thank God every day for giving me a family that’s so easy to love.
