It seems hard to open our doors, but it is necessary to our work as women of God.
•
We can’t take the love of Christ out to the world if we are unwilling to extend it in our own homes.
•
It doesn’t have to be complicated, it can look like a glass of water or a cup of coffee, but it does have to happen.
•
What are you doing this weekend to express hospitality and build community?

Long weekend ready. ✨ #ReneeSlip #madeinla
Tonight we (finally) dropped off the blanket I made for our newest cousin. We snuggled & sang with the little love. .

6 months to the day! Our son has grown, but he still doesn't care for group photos...he's a little vain...like his fathers. And we love each other!💞🐶💖 #tbt #throwbackthursday #ourfamily #furchildren #modernfamily #newnormal #brodythepuppy #love #simplejoys #canthelplovingthatmanofmine #canthelplovingthosemenofmine

Two different types of fern in the dye pot... 🌿🌱Such beautiful green leaves that grow so rapidly once the temperatures warm up. Excited to see what color they hold!

Wow!!! @brenebrown I am soooooo in my midlife ‘unravelling’!!! ANYONE ELSE WITH ME ??? 😀 I’m taking that armour off.  Unravelling and enduring rebirth. Thinking perhaps I’m not going mad after all!!! 😉😜😘 ‘There are only two choices, staying down or enduring rebirth’. 🙌🏼 ‘Enduring’ is the perfect word for it. It’s hard work. Many can’t do it I believe. ‘By definition, you can’t control or manage unravelling’ 🙌🏼 ‘It’s time to show up and be seen’ 👊🏻

Love my hometown 💕 it’s changed so much since I moved, but it’s still beautiful.

What we bring to our picnic in the park - clockwise from the top: yummy and juicy apples, Fluf’s organic cotton insulated and machine-washable lunch bag, East Fork Pottery’s handmade toddler cups, Tangerine Toys’ handmade wooden yo-yo,  and James Street alpaca wool Port beanie. Only the essentials. 😎

No filter! Taken outside my moms assisted living after a challenging visit. It’s hard to see the last stages of life:( #simplejoys #eft #caretaker #happiness
This picture perfectly captures our excitement for the long weekend ahead 🎉 .

These warm sunny nights are magical. We let Charlotte stay up late playing outside until the sun goes down and she’s worn out from dancing, running, and laughing. Creating memories around the patio table and realizing these are the moments that make life beautiful. These are the moments that we will hold on to ❤️

It’s 12:30 PM on a Thursday. 
Haven’t showered yet and wearing the same t-shirt that says “Raising the Future” and shorts for the 3rd day in a row ✌🏽. The poor future 🙈🙈. All I did today was workout, checked in with my team, and went out for brunch with Brad. Not having to wait until the weekend to spend time with him, is something I’ll never take for granted 🙏!! Learning how to fill my ‘free’ pockets of time the last 2 years, is what got me here today and there’s no turning back! This shit is too good to give up now 💁🏼‍♀️. I’ve got the afternoon to soak up some sun ☀️, organize a few baby 💙 things so our house doesn’t look like a tornado 🌪 went though it, and get back to the ladies who are interested in my upcoming fitness + nutrition group! 
OH, and one out of two mentorship spots have been filled for the month of May! I can’t believe how fast our team is growing and how hard they are working! 
This is what has given me a purpose and a passion 💕. So thankful on this Thursday that I chose to step forward rather than stay in the same place I was 2 years ago! 
What are you thankful for?! .

Switching to package free beauty and body products. Slowly but surely. Mascara, eyeliner and conditioner is still one of the hardest products to find without plastic packaging. Please let me know if have favorite brands with eco friendly packaging.

Afternoon tea and a freshly-iced sugar cookie for my love and I. (Mine has the sprinkles, obviously. John will always choose no sprinkles if given the option 🤷🏻‍♀️)

We are thrilled to have found a swimming home for the #Joy_child. Little did we know when she tried out last year that she would be accepted into the Junior League team at Manta Swimming Club.
.
The dedicated coaches and pool deck team volunteer whilst nurturing talent.  Coach @ambrencefisher, sniffles despite, came out even for the one swimmer who made the effort to "show up."

Exciting times lie ahead in the 2018/2019 swimming season.

Isn’t he the greatest? My guy?!?! Seriously. We went on a date a few weeks back. A date! An honest to goodness date. It’s almost as rare as a unicorn. I never that we’d be *that* couple. Oh judgmental younger Julia. How little about true life you knew. How very much you thought you knew. (anyone else ride the judgey train before they woke up to real life?) Life is hard. Marriage is hard. Kids are hard. Mix them all together and they are one large shit salad. (dressing on the side). Damn if it isn’t easy to get caught up in the regret and comparison games. I’m making a different choice (a spiritual practice, if you will) I am choosing gratitude today. I am grateful for a spouse who advocates for our marriage. I am grateful for a relationship that finds time together in the midst of all of the mess. I am grateful for a relationship that defines romance beyond IG perfect. I am grateful to spend this crazy, busy, hectic life together. It’s your turn - where is your gratitude moment today - ya know, the thing you could be grouchy about but that you choose to see differently. Change your perspective.

Do you feel overwhelmed by your to do list today?

My encouragement for you today is to just do one thing! Pick one thing that sounds manageable and do it. Trust me, it will be worth it.
You got this ladies!

Everyday things seem so ordinary, like corners of the store, until I realize the simple fact that I’ll never get the same moment twice. Remember to stop, smell the flowers, take a looksee at what's around you & enjoy!

Came home to such a sweet surprise

Reveived this amazing little gift plus chocolates (not in the picture)because i reached this amazing goal in my business 
People make their comments all the time
...what i do is fake... its a scam... or my favorite its a pyramid scheme... but when i ask those same people what a pyramid scheme they have no clue 🤦‍♀️ I get it this is a different way of doing business but if you know me... you know i would not be part of something where the end result has a negative impact on people

I do this because the point of it is to serve others, to help other's be their best self, to be of inspiration and show as a mom you can be healthy fit and be your own CEO. This gig of mine i work in the oddest of times has given me purpose, fullfillment, and mental freedom

And now i also have this tribe of girls i called my besties that support each other and are there for the ups and downs of it all. I actually think its the best part, surrounding yourself with people like you chasing after huge dreams 
Less than a month to be reunited with them all and i cannot wait to laugh drink and mastermind together 
P.S Mya and i totally ate half the chocolates

P.S.S looking for 3 girls to join in the fun. Link in bio 😙

I feel like I spend my days telling this sweet face "no" in some shape or form.
.
.
.
"Don't climb on that!"
"No more treats!"
"Not right now!"
"Maybe after dinner." .
.
.
So this morning when she asked "please, may I have some cake?" I felt she needed a yes, so we made cake.
.
.
.
It's hard being two, and sometimes you need mom to say yes to cake, and let you lick the beaters. .

Pulled the good flowers still alive from my Mother's Day bouquet together for one last spark of joy. As much as I dislike carnations, you gotta give it to the little guys. They hold on forever 😂. They are my mother's favorite, so they make me think of her ❤❤❤. #simplejoys #bouquet #prettyinpink #farmlifebestlife #farmhousestyling #flowers #flowerstagram #instadaily #instalife #masonjar #makinghouseahome #simplestyle #mycottageinstincts #simplicity #homebeautiful

i’ve chatted a bit about ethical fashion on here before. it’s something for the majority of my life, i never thought about. but, once i started thinking about it, it became really hard to stop. like, thinking about a child, only a few years older (or not even) than my son, making clothes in a sweatshop, it’s heartbreaking. even still, it took me a while to get used to the idea that good quality, sustainable garments, cost more. i started following @thegarmentlife a few years ago, and it’s such an amazing resource. most of the time it seems like everyone on instagram is trying to sell you something, and while @thegarmentlife does receive a portion of each sale during their pop-up sales, a) they are transparent about it, and b) they’re not pushy. if you don’t want it or need it or can’t afford, then don’t buy it! 
BUT if you do have gaps in your wardrobe and are looking for responsibly made garments, this is the place to be. i’ve made several purchases over the last year, and they are the things i wear again and again and again (and reluctantly put in the wash). this travel pop-up, i WANT everything, but what i’m getting: a bathing suit, and an oversized boyfriend shirt - both have been on my list for ages. 
although the dressy sweatpants and boxy tee’s and striped shirts and clogs and everything really are giving me all the heart eyes… i don’t need them. so i’m saying no and that feels good too! anyway, if you want to participate in this pop-up sale (ends today), use the code COMMUNITY10 for 10% off any of the featured pieces. 
PS this is not an ad. 💗

I hope you are all having a lovely Thursday! Here in France the day is almost over, and what do I have to show for it? Four clean apartments for our new B&B guests tomorrow. Being a French maid is soooo much work 💋💋
Haha but really, I’m grateful to the inspiring podcasts that kept me company all day.

Now that the apartments are all spick and span, I’m going to spend the evening relaxing with my husband, editing photos, playing with the baby kittens, and taking an evening stroll through some vineyards. I love these simple, beautiful days. I hope your Thursday is filled with simple joys too. •

I hope you are all having a lovely Thursday! Here in France the day is almost over, and what do I have to show for it? Four clean apartments for our new B&B guests tomorrow. Being a French maid is soooo much work 💋💋 Haha but really, I’m grateful to the inspiring podcasts that kept me company all day.

I’m currently LOVING the stage Calvin is in right now. He is a young boy who is the true definition of what a toddler boy is. Eats a ton. Plays a ton. Sleeps a ton (finally!). Wouldn’t trade this for anything.

And yes, those are still decorations from his first birthday from six months ago. And no, I don’t see them  coming down anytime soon.

Healthy AND hubby approved?! 😍😍😍 When I couldn’t finish what was on my plate the other night, Brad asked “umm are you gonna eat that?” I said no..... and he stole it HAHA 
Do you eat off each other’s plate too? We are one another’s vultures HAHA 🤣. Been loving this ‘rice’ recipe that’s not even real rice HAHA. It tastes like Chinese fried rice BUT I can eat as much of it as I want on my new nutritional program!! Love this mindful eating thing 💃🏼🙌🏼! No counting calories, or macros, or measuring portions! 
Comment with 🍚 if you want the recipe!! Takes less than 10 minutes to make ✌🏽 .
