So I hear it’s the first day of Fall and since it’s a cool 100 degrees here, and will be for who knows how long I figured why not post a cute fall pic of sis last year in Utah. Thankful we had true falls in beautiful places like Italy and Utah so we can show the kids that other places do have seasons 😜😂 dreaming of the weather cooling down for the long park days, walks and just enjoying outside! 🍁🍂
Life is more fun with a good ol’ turquoise cuff
Feeling like I could explode with creativity currently. Any fellow creatives feel like collabing in the coming weeks?
Perhaps this is the moment for which you were created.
The only way to begin your tomorrow with a smile, is to go to bed with one🙃 .
Forget the people, words, and thoughts that brought negativity to your life today and just let....it....go. .
Tomorrow, you're going to own that shit.✌🏼️
I’ve been many things during the past 10 or so years...a pregnant teenager, a single mum and a university drop out, a successful agency owner, a boss, a wife... Plus a lot more if I’m honest, both positive & negative.
But something clicked in me during the past week, when I was down and out and having a shitty day. Why have I not acknowledged how far I have come mentally?
Sure, I’ve celebrated a special achievement with work, a new car or hitting a financial goal, but I’ve never looked back on my personal growth and how much I have changed and developed.
Maybe it’s because I’m almost 32 and maturing more, but I really felt good considering how much I have grown up.
Have you ever celebrated or acknowledged your own personal growth?
If you’re going through hard times and feel like you’re never getting ahead, maybe do what I did and look back and consider your own personal achievements- not the physical stuff, I mean the shit that goes on inside your head. The negative self-talk, the self-doubt, the feeing sorry for yourself. You might get into that headspace, but have you learnt the skills to get out of it?
Whatever skills you have learnt to pick yourself up, learn and keep going... these are making you a stronger, wiser being, so OWN IT 👊🏼
Ps- one half of my squad- how freaking lucky am I?! 😝

So my first born.... as she refers to me as her birth giver 🙄 will be 15 next week 💗
She is the quieter, more serious member of our girl back. Incredibly shy is also a great way to describe her. In true spirit like her Mum. She got a job. Then a second job...good thing she has such an awesome birth giver to escort her to and from... recently it was advertised that they needed someone to write an editorial piece each week(temp whilst someone away)in the paper. Such a big responsibility for someone so young. With some guidance by a senior member. She getting this stuff down packed.
It’s so great to see when you spend many countless days and nights wondering if you get this parenting right. To see her taking on so much responsibility, time management and coming slowly like a turtle smashing life goals.Now she has her own money. We can all get a loan off her 😂😂😂😂
Happy fall, Y'all! With changing seasons I'm always reminded, like most, of how quickly our lives change. While some seasons are more difficult than others to navigate, we can trust Jesus is with us. He is our firm foundation no matter what is changing around us. Whether it's on the inside of you or the outside, you don't have to worry about the outcome. Just trust His timing and His process. 💧
This harvest season, I pray every good and lovely thing from heaven falls on your life. Like the leaves starting to burst hues of orange, red and yellow, He has an even more beautiful plan for you! You can be sure that whatever He is doing is for your good! 💧
“For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed" Malachi 3:6, ESV
Let the fall festivities begin.. Apple picking 🍎🍏
Truly, I do love Fall most of all! 🍎🍁🍂
Spring Equinox 🌞🌊🙏🏻
It's official, summer is dawning 🙌🏻
Wild and unruly, just like our Saturday 😂👌🏻💘
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL!!! 🍁🍂🍁 We take this short break from a short break (in which I didn’t mean to be off the gram grid this week but, the Kentucky production design job was fast and furious!! Behind the scenes, coming soon.) to wish you a happy first day of the best season of the year!! 😄🙌🏼🍁🙏🏼😭👍🏼💛 I’ve always adored fall. It gives me all the feels. My birthday is in the fall. So is mine and Will’s anniversary. Now Liam’s birthday, too. All within the span of a week in October - ha! •
We’re more excited than ever about spending this soon-to-be crispy cool, golden treed, cinnamon + spice filled festive season together this year. Because about this time last year, I was 8 months pregnant and had no idea my world would be nearly ripped apart in a matter of weeks before this precious outdoor-loving boy even arrived, when his dad would suddenly become critically ill and fall into a downward spiral post surgery that sent us in to 9 weeks of on and off induced comas and nearly losing him. Oh how we are eternally grateful that the Lord answered our prayers and brought him back to us last December!! But we’ve all looked back on what was going to be our “best fall ever” with our first baby arriving and felt like it escaped us, or was robbed from us due to that all consuming crisis.
So, we’ve waited all year to have a chance again at the best fall ever. Now, more rich and beautiful than we could’ve ever imagined, marking a full year of all three of us miraculously still together. 😌 •
Count your blessings and get those boots and flannels ready, because I’m willing cooler temps to Arkansas with positive thinking and prayer!! 😉🙏🏼🍁

🍂hi hikers! The Dowd family @dineodowd
still here doing the Hib Instagram takeover. 🍂The loneliness of motherhood started to kick in the day my husband went back to work. I started crying alone missing my family, asking myself if this was the best decision, I cried lots of tears, I was tired and wasn't sure what I was doing most of the time, I was depressed for time being,then one day I was out on a playdate when one of the mom mentioned Hike it, baby, I started hiking with our daughter when she was 3 months old,I remember how terrified I was to take my daughter on my first hike with hike it baby back in Salt Lake City, because 3 days before that I had tripped on a trail-and smashed my arm and broke the screen of my new camera on the rock, and almost went down the hill, I was rescued down to the trailhead by our friends,Thank god I was not carrying Armani. 🍂Today I look back and I realize that it was the best thing that ever happened to me, to push my self that day and show up on a first hike, because that day, I found my tribe, I have learned that she was not too young to start hiking,I have learned how to use my frame backpack from this awesome community. I have overcome the depression After I have been ignored by my friends. This was the community that changed my life and I regained my strength and set goals for myself.living abroad and raising a family is never easy, how many of you have found support and love from this community?
🍂join us tomorrow's as I share tips on hiking with a toddler, I hope you enjoyed the story timeline today.

How perfect that Fall Fun Day fell on the first day of fall. 👌🏼 Our UltraKids had a blast today!
tempat berangan, tempat picit jerawat, tempat tulis blog, tempat makeup, tempat belek gigi sambil fikir bila nak straight, dan beberapa lagi fungsi yang takboleh nak recall sekarang 😅
teringin pulak rasanya nak vanity mirror yang ada lampu tu. tapi yang nyampahnya nanti semua benda jadi terang. takboleh nak tipu diri sendiri dah. kalau muka berlobang makan jelaslah lobangnya . kena mula ajar diri redho hahahaha
btw ada siapa tahu kat mana boleh beli cermin camtu? tag peliss 👇🏻
Our reaction when someone says they wish summer could last forever!
Happy first day of Fall 🏈🍂
Great reward for us today after the long walk 😊 I mean getting here was as dazzling but it's always great to see the water through the trees
