Throwing it back to one of my favorite Fall sessions from last year. A little bit of beach, a little bit of sunset, and a little bit of fun...(just a tiny, wee bit of fun). Who wants to spend some beach time with me for their holiday photos this year? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've got only got a few beach mini spots left, so click the link in bio 👆🏼and I hope to get to spend some sandy, beach time with you (shoes optional, of course)! 🙌🏼
Dear Weekend, despite me being a bit under the weather, you did not disappoint. Gorgeous weather, good family time and getting things done around the house were all much appreciated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dear Monday, I love you but kind of wish I had my feet in the sand today but you leave me much to do. While I make my list for the week, I'll just be reminiscing about this gorgeous beach session. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, how are you getting through your Monday today? I know you've got this. 🙌🏼👊🏼
Heyo Saturday! Since southern California didn't get the memo about Fall (I mean, 80 degrees and 60% humidity 😩), I'm thinking beach time with some favorite people may be the best way to spend today. Who's in?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In all reality though, we are sitting on a soccer field today. Happy Saturday! Tell me your favorite way to spend the weekend?
Motherhood. It is a ball buster, that's for sure. We are finishing the first full week of Kindergarten today. While the kiddo is having an amazing time, I am totally under the weather! Looks like the only person that is not adjusting to this new schedule is me! 😩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And who can relate when I say that being sick when you're a mom is way worse than being sick before kids! I mean, can't my 5-year-old just color quietly for like, FOUR HOURS, so I can put my feet up and grab a nap on the couch!? 🤷🏻♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thankful for Friday and a weekend of rest (okay, I lie...there's some editing, more accounting, a soccer game...you know what I mean). Any get well tips for an under the weather mama? Anyone want to come over and do my laundry? I swear, it's one load (or three). Happy Friday, everyone!
Nothing beats love from mama, no matter how old you are. Okay, maybe a hug from dad too, but I'm just sayin' 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Thursday my friends! We are inching soooo close to Friday - who's excited!? We always celebrate Thursdays by taking a break from making dinner (it's our busiest day) - how do you celebrate almost getting to Friday? 🍷
Current mood.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In all seriousness though, I am on coffee number 3 of the day and I'm slaying my to-do list. I blame the caffeine...always the caffeine. I sometimes will even have a dance break, but I'll save you the visuals on that (believe me, you don't want to see it).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone else feeling nutty mid-week or is it just me? 🙋🏻♀️ Any tips on getting over the mid-week craziness? And no, I will not limit my caffeine intake. 😳🐪
17 years ago, I had just graduated college and was up early, getting ready for work. As I was brushing my teeth, I turned on the television. It was the same thing I had done every morning - turned on the TV to get some morning news. I stopped dead in my tracks - I still remember being so in shock in what I was seeing that I couldn't even figure out exactly what was going on. Needless to say, I was glued to the screen, I stopped moving and I instantly thought about my family and friends who still lived in NY and worked in the area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As I watched the second plane crash into the tower, I grabbed my phone and started dialing. I couldn’t get any service. I couldn’t reach my dad, I couldn’t reach my friends, I couldn’t reach a single soul. This was before social media became what it is today. So, I watched…and I waited. It was days before service came back and I started getting phone calls. While I didn’t lose anyone to the attacks, I had family and friends in the area that lived it…survived it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After all these years, I am still emotional on this day. I think of all the lives lost, all the lives affected and despite the tragic scenes of the day, it is a day that I will never forget. As a parent, I want my child to know what happened on this day, to understand why we memorialize today and what this day means for all Americans. We need to practice acceptance, equality and of all things, love! Do you remember where you were 17 years ago, today? #neverforget #alwaysremember ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image courtesy of Pinterest
