Last night you two felt your baby sibling in my belly kicking, and I enjoyed all the questions you had about the baby. Isabelle, you asked me when the baby was coming (this is probably the 100th time you’ve asked 😊), and also talked about how baby will get it’s milk from mommy, and whether the baby will like ice cream, (you also asked this question of baby Charlotte). Kaitlyn, you had so many questions I was not expecting, including how the baby is born, how the belly button forms, how the baby will ‘go to the bathroom’ in mummy’s tummy, and many many others. It’s amazing how much your minds have grown these two years since your younger sister was born. I can see how amazed and excited you are with the wonder of babies. 💜
There is blueberry pie, and then there’s Maine blueberry pie! 🤤 Next time your on Mount Desert Island, make sure to swing by Quietside Cafe and grab an extremely flavorful slice of heaven that does perfect justice to the berries them self! #blueberrypie#maineblueberries#blueberriesfordays
Another evening on the creek bank, but someone still isn’t sure about walking around down there.. ☺️ He’s finally comfortable enough to run around our yard, but he kinda freezes up when you put him on the ground in new places.. (as you can see his toes not completely on the ground) Sometimes I forget that it’s only been 8 weeks, but these are the little daily reminders.. I’m sure he will be jumping off in there very soon, so I’m definitely not rushing it.. I’ll hold him as long as he wants me to.. 🐼🖤 #wecouldhavemissedthis#chinaadoption#myboy
Don't have time for a spa? I def don't, I barely have time to shower being a new mom. Heres what i do to bring some scented tranquility into your shower - add eucalyptus (cost about $5 a bundle) to your shower, close your eyes, breathe in the amazing soothing scent, and forget about the dirty dishes, the diaper pail that needs to be dumped out etc etc ... And this #eucalyptus treat actually helps me remember to use SOAP when I shower hehehe
Rubles & I had so much fun at the @ergobaby event today! She loved their new #coolomni360 carrier, I have a feeling we will be using it a lot this summer and I cannot wait for all the fun adventures! 💛✨☀️ I’ll be doing a full blog post, so stay tuned! #InMyErgo#CoolOmni360#AD
I have had my Instagram account since 2012. It’s always been a place for me to share bits of my life and the people I hold dear. That is why I have never removed many of my old phone photos. I started sharing images from my dslr here over four years ago. It’s not always perfectly curated and was never meant to be.
For the past 5 months or so I was caught in a painful, creative rut. It’s happened before, maybe for a week or so, but never this long. I found myself in a place where, ironically, I try and teach other fellow artists to avoid. The fact of the matter is ruts happen. There were times I wasn’t picking up my camera for a solid week which isn’t me. Photography has always been therapeutic to me. Sort of like a book that you get lost in and forget about time. Capturing my family and love of nature is what I do and I found myself uninspired and lacking creativity.
And then I started looking back at old photos of my boys. They are one of the many reasons I love photography. How they have grown! And these two boys are always together while Leo is away at school. They are at the stage of nonstop play wrestling and I don’t think that will end anytime soon. I realized that I lost my way in remembering why I pick up my camera. I love nothing more than to capture my boys together because truthfully they are always together! It’s challenging at times, but I’m not here to tell them constantly where to stand or what to do. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still trying to find the good light and wait for the right moment. But I’m also here to try and view the world through their eyes and remember what it was like to be so young, innocent and full of wonder.
The past week has been refreshing. I’ve seen some beautiful things unfold between my children simply by just letting go.
I feel like my feed is Otto (and thus, BABY BOY) - focused lately, so how about a little bit of frilly dresses, pretty curls and pink? I can hardly stand the cuteness of this photo. Look at them hold their fresh baby sister, and was that baby born a model?! She must be, because look at that perfect pose! 💕🌸🌷

Steppin out for our anniversary dinner date like 👸🏻👸🏻👸🏻👸🏻. “Got my hair done and my nails done too, a new outfit and my Fendi shoes” - Queen 🐝 Well that’s all accurate except for the Fendi shoes, but that doesn’t make much of a difference👸🏻😅
When I was younger I had friendships where we wouldn’t see each other for months. Where we wouldn’t talk for weeks at a time. But always would laugh and say but when we do meet up it’s like we were never apart. As an adult I realize that these are half ass relationship. I do not wish to have friends that do not know what’s going on in my life. That we wait months to catch up. It’s never enough time and how do you really catch someone up on months or years worth of information? I would like to be active in my friends life. Be there for them. As I would want them to be there for me. My best friends live in NYC and we speak every single day. So I don’t believe it’s distance. I believe it’s priorities. Sometimes you just aren’t a priority in someone’s life. So it doesn’t matter if you’re three blocks away or miles or whatever. It’s just a matter of time. So I don’t believe in this type of friendships anymore. I believe it’s unhealthy and triggers me all the wrong ways. I believe in making time for those that value you. It’s important to show gratitude for relationships. Disappearing for months than catching up is not healthy. It builds an idea that these types of relationships are somehow still growing. When in fact growth stopped a long time ago. Ask yourself why you aren’t worth someone’s time. Why it’s always running to catching up and never a solid stable relationship. I asked myself those questions. Now I can count with one hand how many close friends I have. I am the happiest I have ever been in my entire life. I am thankful for those that have always pushed me and stayed close . Even though distance is a factor. We communicate everyday. Not once a week. Not once a month. Not once a year. Time is very valuable. So if someone can’t give you any? Then why stick around for half ass relationships not worthy of growth? @jamilaelsahili @devaashree @staudeey @tanima.x I love you and am very thankful for you. My people ✊🏽 #mentalhealth#stability#flowers#peace#liveauthentic#findpeace#grow#growth#nature#iphone7plus#nothingisordinary#live#love#laugh#sing#dance#believe#beautiful#beyourself#bethechange#janaliftsup
Quickest of quick beach walks this morning in between rain showers - someone wasn’t happy about not being able to swim! Just 2 short weeks until we are in Bali my little friend, bring on the sunshine and cocktails ✨
Sorry not Sorry Isla Lynn- that’s what you get! 💛
Lately, going anywhere with this spirited little girl has been pretty exhausting. Sometimes I come home and feel well, kind of defeated. what I’d set out to do is usually only half done because I spent more of my time chasing her around than actually doing what I need to do. 🤷🏼♀️ But those feelings never last long because I’m just so in love with that spirit and personality! 🌻 It helps that she’s just so dang cute too! 😉
Met some amazing mamas today and I just gotta say again: I don’t know how you do it! You’re a amazing. Kids are crazy but parents are superhero’s 💛💛💛
My favorite thing about Denver is how much fun he brings to our marriage. When I get bogged down or overworked, he’s the first one to say “come on, we’re going to get ice cream.” Me: “But I have too much to do”. Denver: “Get in the car loser, we’re going shopping”. One of my favorite parts about him. My forever friend. Never stop dating your spouse. 🍦🍦
After tons of decision making and endless “I’m going to be too old for grad school” or “everyone I know is already done with grad school” thoughts, I made the leap back into it 💫 Through learning from all these transitions, I’m finally letting myself go at my own pace that is comfortable for ME. I’ve already posted it on my story before, but it still stands true that nothing will ruin your 20s more than thinking you should have you life together already. And I firmly believe in that. So here’s to taking the next step AND still doing all of the things I love ✨
Amazing place with stunning atmosphere. Find the hidden door 🥠 Обожаю кафе и рестораны с изюминкой. Поэтому не смогла пройти мимо @beautyandessexnyc. Внешний вид достаточно специфичный, с яркой горящей вывеской, которая перекрывает старое потертое название бывшей обувной мастерской. Внутри тебя встречает магазин со всяким барахлом, которое можно купить. А в углу виднеется дверь через которую ты и попадаешь в ресторан. Пароль правда не спрашивают😁 Суть заключается в том, что на это кафе просто так натолкнуться на улице нельзя, если не знаешь, что за дверью спрятался так называемый секретный бар. Кто откажется привнести немного таинственности в романтический ужин?
Еда разнообразная, сделана на манер закусок. Что точно стоит попробовать так это: костный мозг с мармеладом из лука, салат со свежим тунцом, тако со стейком. И коктейли. Они делают очень необычные коктейли, отдайте предпочтение мартини. Они делают их с водкой или джином, поэтому будьте готовы к тому, что может снести голову с первого бокала. Примерная цена на двоих $200 за ужин с алкоголем. Стоит ли это того? Стоит, если ищите что-то необычное, в том числе по какому-то особенному поводу.
Кстати, мне очень понравился мармеладный лук. Наверно могла бы тонну съесть. Надо было рецептик записать 😋 А какое самое вкусное блюдо, или часть блюда или продукт вы когда-либо ели? Чтобы именно осталось в памяти?

Page one in my new journal....since I lost my other one on the @amtrak train this weekend on the way to NY. I’m so sad. I filed a claim with lost baggage, but have heard nothing. I called while the train was stopped in Woodbridge,VA due to 30 cars of a freight train falling off of the tracks just before we would pass through. I would have thought they’d find it. Thankful no one was hurt though. #blessed
Sage has a cleansing effect on negative vibes. Think of it as hitting the rest button. “If you are experiencing a persistent emotion that won’t clear, something effective would be to sage your personal space, sage yourself, and then sage your stones.” - @mydomaine ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
