“If your going through Hell, don’t stop and build a house.” WOW! I have the power over my own life. It is ok to feel pain, to visit grief and disappointment, but I needed to remember not to build my house on that land. To keep going, to get out of that stinky hot zip code and embrace a life more abundant!
Messy jazz shirts and lots of joy. On the blog tonight I’m sharing a quick way to improve your pictures - whether shooting on an iPhone or DSLR. I LOVE taking quick snaps and honestly don’t always have time to get the perfect shot (#toddlerproblems ) but being able to quickly compose my image makes it better. I hope my suggestion helps you too! #linkinprofile
Observing them play is one of the greatest gifts in this lifetime. Lots of crying, shouting, even kicking and pinching in between (🙈). At the end of the day, what we hold dear in our hearts are their giggles, hugs, funny antics, snuggles, kisses, holding hands and pure love for each other. Oh so blessed to mother these two. 💗
Is there some kind of etiquette time frame that birth announcements need to be sent out by? If so, I’m sure I’ve failed on that one. Twelves weeks in and I’ve finally had time to mail them. Better late than never, right?
Last night of my 20’s: Part 3/3. For most of 29 I was pregnant. This caused me to slow down a lot & really be thankful for all that i had. That being said, it was quite possibly the best year of my life. I grew so much this past year. I gained perspective on so many things & I felt confidence in who I am as a person, like I’ve never felt before. I watched as God blessed my marriage, my daughter, my son, and as He helped my friendships flourish & reach new depths. I truly am praising God for a year of beauty. It was the year I met my sweet Roman & was forever changed. I cannot wait to see what this next decade brings. I’m excited for 30 & know it’s going to be full of adventure, love, joy & happiness!

Today was legit THE WORST day in a while.
LIKE “screw all our plans because we are NOT going anywhere today” kind of day. #notamomwin .
I was up last night 🌙 with a kiddo who was crying because she had a sore throat.
Of COURSE she ended up with strep throat.
And it is her last couple days left of school! She cried sooo hard!!
Then I had a toddler that vomited not during one meal, not two meals, but three meals. 3️⃣
(And the first happened to be in the car. In his car seat. Right as I was stepping out of the car.)
And he is totally one of those kids that does the SILENT vomiting. Where you don’t even know it’s going on!! He even ran to the garbage and just stood there while it happened- no crying at all!! 😇.
I’m totally the opposite- a blubbering mess! I’ll have mascara running down my face 😭(Because I forgot to take it off the night before) and be sobbing because I DO NOT want to vomit!! 🤮 There might even be some moaning going on like I’m in labor🤰🏻 because heaven knows that’s the ONLY way I can make it through any kind of pain anymore. .
So, to put it lightly, our day pretty much sucked. 👎🏼.
I eventually got the kiddos out of the house and to a small park- just to get them some fresh air! ☀️. They laughed and giggled as we swung and slid, which of course made my ❤️ happy. .
The day may have started out very dreary ⛈ and daunting, but we got to finish it with smiles and happiness. .
These lilacs were also there to help cheer me up- and because they are in full bloom, their aroma was so intoxicating!
I even stopped in my back yard to pick some for inside the house. .
For the next few days I’ll have the memory of my smiling children playing in the park with me. ❤️❤️❤️.
Day...4? Is this even practice? I'm calling it practice for today 😜 When you're afraid to wake kids up, this will have to do. a snippet of a rhythm I used on a passage from you know what concerto, concentrating on keeping my fingers strong and curved (and on the fingerboard lol); then "played" as written;
then the sight that greeted me on my TENYEAROLD daughter as I looked up from trying on sneakers at the store 😯 she's got a fashion sense that I unfortunately don't have... #boringmama#tiredmama#violinist#violin#recovery101
of all things my hands have held the best by far is you.♡

i love these little avocados 🥑🥑 so much. Livy is officially obsessed with Matthew and at least for now🤞🏼he doesn’t mind it at all. he loves his little sister so much and I absolutely love watching them crack each other up. it’s making life harder because she is CONSTANTLY distracted by him and cries when he cries which makes more noise for mama and a more difficult nap time 🤦🏼♀️ but I’ll take it anyway 😍😍 #mylittleavocados#matthewandlivy
No better way to end a Monday than in a Floral Print and a huge smile on your child’s face ! Right @missmilianamae ?! Did everyone else have a good , productive Monday that set a positive note for the whole week?
I managed to get a workout in , have a play date and even ship out some orders during nap time and now kids are fed and I’m watching them swim and have fun outside - WIN WIN WIN !
He’s been wearing big boy undies all day without any accidents. I couldn’t be more proud if he just hit his first homerun, scored his first goal, got a hole-in-one or kicked his first field goal (safest football position obvs). Those will all be really good days too though. Buzz and I are all 🤩🤩🤩 over here! #pottytrainingdiaries#joysofjacoby
