Happy 6th birthday Landon!
You seriously rock 🙌🏻
You help carry the weight, you help shoulder the responsibility, you help dole out the love. You help. •
You’re a blessing to us all. You are smart, compassionate, give the best cuddles, kind, giving and selfless. We can all do more and do better with you in our troop. •
So thank you for everything. For helping mommy when daddy is gone, for tuning on TV shows, for getting snacks, for helping your sisters get their shoes on, for being an amazing role model, for running upstairs for that one last thing, mediating arguments, reminding them to take deep breaths and that it will be ok, for all the ways you help, all the time. Thank you Birthday Boy ❤️🎉 We love you so much!

Crazy kids catching snowflakes! ❄️❄️❄️ Side note: I’d be A LOT more excited about the first snow of the season if it weren’t happening in November, but these two are more than making up for my lack of enthusiasm. Also, you can actually see proper snow in the second picture. 😉

“Mom..why do kids say ‘I don’t want to be your friend anymore’?” She said that that’s just what kids do sometimes and not let it affect me.
I said, “If they don’t want to be friends with me, then I don’t want to be their friends either.” My mom said that was ok, and that kids say those things because they don’t know what they’re doing sometimes. .
It doesn’t hurt my feelings, I think it’s ok if they don’t like me. That’s just how some people are. .

The fact is, my 2018 school year started on a sour note. My newly 6 year old was beginning First Grade, away from home for longer hours while simultaneously going through struggles unrelated to school. After refusal of clothing, escalated meltdowns, and missing too many days of public school, I felt I had no choice but to take her education into my own hands. First grade is admittedly a critical year and her mind was cluttered with much larger concerns. Gone were my excuses and misconceptions that a working mom could never homeschool. The solution was simple: Commit to fit school around my schedule. Unconventional hours and tactics would need to be used, but I had confidence that I could provide her with what she needed to learn. A safe, calm environment. The freedom to play and explore while also implementing ways to keep her anxiety at ease. All at once, those years of being curious about homeschool came full circle. Now I found myself as an accidental homeschool mom. More on the blog...
While I physically disagree—not at all a snow bunny like Paxton—I do believe this piece of advice, metaphorically. ❄️ .
You are exactly where you are supposed to be. Your journey is unique, just like a snowflake. And you are, too! To me, this also means that no struggle or storm happens that isn’t meant to happen. ❄️
So bundle up. Go scrape off the car. Shovel your path. Drive safely. Or bundle up + stay inside. Better yet, throw snowballs at whatever’s got you down, then make some snow angels. Your snow is means to be. 😉❄️
Best project I ever worked on with my daddy!!! Toys? I'm there! Can't wait to visit @ebay

Best thing about having your own online business? You are your own boss.
Worst thing about having your own online business? You are your own boss.
No that’s not a typo 😳 Yes you read that right. Being your own boss is awesome but some bosses (me) can be really hard on their “employee” (that’s also me)
Last week Allie asked me how come I never came to help at her school like the other moms. I explained that it was because I had to work. She said but you are always home! 🤔
I told her that mommy is fortunate to be able to be home most of the time but that she still works when she is home and has a lot of things that need her attention. She shook her head and said she understood.
Then the mom guilt HIT HARD.
She was right... if mom is home maybe she can come in once in a while and help out at school. After all, isnt that the reason mom works so hard to be home in the first place?! 🤗
So I called the boss (me) and told her I was taking the morning off so I could surprise Allie and volunteered at her thanksgiving feast ❤️ We made turkey placemats, fun pilgrim hats, read Johnny Appleseed and tried apples dipped in caramel.
Honestly, it was so much fun! She was so happy to have me there and I know she will treasure today forever. As will I 🤗
Having time freedom to go things like this is what I work so hard for, but sometimes it takes a little dose of mom guilt to remind you of what’s important. It was a much needed pill to swallow but isn’t it awesome how our kids are always helping us grow?
I think no matter how hard we try we are always juggling too many balls at once and inevitably some will fall. That’s ok. It happens and it doesn’t mean you screwed up it just means you have to pick the balls up and try again. The idea of balance is one I laugh at. It doesn’t exist and we are all just doing the best we can with the amount of balls we choose to pick up. If we could just learn to give ourselves some grace it will be a great show in the end.

#TBT #LongPostAlert #PubertyChallenge #MyTestimony
I was a happy kid that lived in Goose Creek, SC. I vividly remember being a daddy’s girl growing up.
My parents got divorced when I was 7 years old & we abruptly moved from South Carolina to Kentucky. I was always sad bc my parents split. I thought I did something to make my dad leave. I smiled a lot but I was always crying.
That sadness turned into anger. I started drinking & smoking. I ran the streets doing everything I was big enough to do.
You couldn’t tell me anything. That anger turned into rage. I was violent and toxic. I did whatever I wanted no matter the cost.
I had a 1 year old baby & 5 months pregnant w my daughter. I was lost still searching for answers.
By my 29th Birthday I was a shacked up GF, Bitter baby mama, married & then divorced. I finally got help for my anger issues. I finally recognized who God wanted me to be & made steps towards it.
I take pictures now bc I can’t believe the 180 my life has taken. Most girls w my testimony are still in it or still look like it. But God redeemed time for me. He covered me in grace & put a word in my mouth. He turned my rage into boldness that serves the Kingdom today. #TGBTG

Guten Morgen ihr Lieben😊
Erst mal tut es mir leid das ich mich seit Sonntag nicht mehr bei euch gemeldet habe, aber ich hatte viel zu tun mit der Uni, Arbeit und dem kleinen, sodass ich meine freie Zeit nicht noch für Instagram nutzen wollte. Sowohl dem Bub, als auch mir geht es aber gut. •
Zwischen Unistress und langen Arbeitszeiten bin ich den kleinen am Montag und Dienstag aber geritten. Ich muss sagen es war nicht das Gelbe vom Ei, aber ich versuche mich echt immer anzustrengen die Sachen aus meinen Reitstunden beim Reiten alleine so gut es geht umzusetzen. Zudem habe ich mir auch vorgenommen, so weit es die Zeit zu lässt, mehr Reitstunden zu nehmen, weil ich das Gefühl habe jedes mal wenn ich alleine Reite mache ich das erlernte aus der Reitstunde wieder kaputt, weil ich es alleine noch nicht so gut hinkriege. Zum anderen habe ich mir in den letzten Jahren echt nicht so gute Dinge angewöhnt, an denen es jetzt gilt zu arbeiten um sie irgendwie aus mir rauszubekommen.
Ich habe also gleich wieder Training und düse mal zum Stall.
Euch wünsche ich einen schönen Tag und eine schöne restliche Woche💕
