🤦🏼♀️Most people in life are should-ers.💯
They should do this. They should do that. They end up should-ing all over themselves.😂
Don't be a should-er.🙅🏼♀️
🔑Be a DO-er!
💕If you're being called to do it. Don't overthink it. DO IT. Trust me!

This is an appreciation post for my new library. When I moved here, getting a library card was one of the first things I did. I am sick to my stomach over the atrocious @forbes

professor. Libraries offer so much to the community and should NEVER be privatized!!!!
If I had to pick one thing for breakfast for the rest of my life, I think this pretty much covers it. 😂 #HelloMonday
There’s lots of things to fight for today.
Peace/justice/equality/freedom/finding our place/changing the world.
But the hardest thing? The first-things-first kinda thing?
Fighting for us. To be us. Uniquely, unrivalled, marvellously and messily us.
Don’t try to be someone you’re not. Be the woman you were made to be. Be creative, be adventurous, be entrepreneurial, be social, be introverted, be messy or wild or calm and considered. Don’t be what you think you should be/must be/ought to be. Be you.
And then all of a sudden, you’ll find your fit, your place, the way you were made to make a difference in the world. And everyone will thank you for it.
Be you. It’s enough. More than enough. ✌🏼💗
🕊️ Earthquakes, hurricane
White doves flying
Old feels, you're home
To know what matters most
I'll keep you safe and sound
Keep you safe and sound
Safe and sound ✨

Some cakes are not the prettiest looking and yet they are sometimes the most special ones. Earlier this week I had the 8 year old son of a friend coming over. He’s probably my biggest fan when I am making cake and this time he wanted to make a cake with me. I was impressed with how concentrated he was. Sure, we had good laughs and lots of fun but in the end I think he can be proud of his first cake. I helped him with the preparation of the cake but the decorations were his department. Looking forward to our next culinary adventure!
Today is my half birthday! And while I don’t love getting older... and actually don’t love photos of myself, I love that with each year I get more and more comfortable with myself. I learn how to be at peace with my crazy personality, my ups and downs, and quirks. I have learned how to appreciate the little joys in the day to day rather than wait for the next big thing. And mostly I learned that I am enough. Just as I am. The weight, the color, the level of achievement, the successes and failures. This crazy package... it’s just as it’s meant to be. Tied up in a pink tulle bow of course! 🎀🎂🎉🍾
Finished a smaller mermaid garden after I got a request for one similar to the large piece I recently completed. So much fun to play with these metallic paints and they look amazing in different lighting! 🌊🧜🏽♀️🌴
Einmal jetzt genau das, bitte.

Raise your hand if you are celebrating Shark Week this week! 🙋 My 6 year old asked if it was a holiday, because to him it definitely is celebration worthy. 🎉 Is it celebration worthy in your house? 🦈🦈🦈 #sharkweek #sharkweek2018
Our first brown egg 🙌🎉 After much drama, Penelopeep finally managed to lay for us. Who knew chickens could be so emotional? Or loud? 🎤🎧
In other news, summer has been brutal over here ☀️🔥 Jon added a small AC unit to the coop #spoiledchickens
and we've been keeping the girls cool with frozen berries, watermelon, and an occasional dunk in a tub of lukewarm water when temps hits triple digits.
And they've thanked us for our kindness by digging up some of my plants and dust bathing whereever I put down fresh soil 🤷♀️ To sum up the whole experience, I think it was @thewoodsysort
that said it best, "I drastically underestimated the amount of poop I'd be dealing with". All that aside, we really do love having backyard chickens 🐓🥚
There is nothing better than a child’s sense of wonder 🌏✨
Summer s/a/l/e all week. First up Organic Rosehip Oil, my ride or die. 48hrs or till it’s gone. —
A true multitasking face savior. .
Ideal for all skin types and ph balanced. It’s super light and absorbs quickly. Hydrating without clogging pores. It’s molecular structure is similar to our skin’s natural oil (sebum). Rosehip oil can help regulate our own skin’s oil production and great for rebalancing oily skin. Plus it’s gentle for those with sensitive skin.
Improves the appearance of scars and stretch marks as well as dark spots.
Vitamin C and lycopene found is rosehip seed oil combat fine lines and wrinkles. Rosehip oil can naturally repair the skin’s surface, restore elasticity and protects against sun and pollution stressors that lead to wrinkles.

Did you know that Tim asked me to marry him about a million times before he officially proposed? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think we had been dating for less than a month when this guy gave me a promise ring. Every year I would tell him he was crazy and that I NEEDED to be accomplished first and have my huge career before settling down. He would just laugh at me with an “alright, whatever you say”. Looking back, I just laugh at myself because I thought those were the things that would make me happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes still, he knew something that I didn’t. That joy and happiness weren’t something to be found but something that was chosen. In the now, in the waiting, in what is to come. He was always all in. & for every day that he has chosen to love me, care for me, risk it all for our dreams, and make me laugh...for that I am the most thankful. 💕💕
Whether you are single, dating, or married. Choose joy today friends! 😘

New arrivals went live last night and they are selling fast!
Just a boy, his blocks and a ball. He has everything he could ever want!
Bring on vacation always makes me realize how much i enjoy the simplicity of having less stuff. Do you ever think about that. I bring only my favorite clothes, we don’t have a ton of toys, and we spend more time outside or playing games. I’m not constantly cleaning up because here is just less to worry about!
I need to remember how much i enjoy this and simplify things more when we get home. I’m less stressed with less stuff.
I've always wanted to live in New England (preferably Massachusetts) or the PNW (preferably Washington state) and this photo transports me to the quaint fishing town of my dreams. Even though it was taken in Chicago. And I hate seafood. 😂
Last weekend’s essentials 💖 Hope your week’s off to a great start!
You can have brunch on Mondays, too, did you know?
Down the memory lane
This photo was taken 15 years ago, and I still find it fascinating.
What is your memorable trip?
I‘m a blackberry thief by nature. 🍓 Heimische Gärten sind dazu da, um geplündert zu werden. Ich kann mich nicht mal entscheiden, ob Brombeeren, Himbeeren oder schwarze Johannisbeeren ganz oben auf meiner Liste stehen.
On cloudy days when it's just me and the wee babe, we bring the outdoors indoors.

So this happened a bit earlier than expected... Finn Oliver Liddell made his way into the world on 19th July 2018 at 17:12pm. He’s a snuggly 7lb 11oz and perfect in absolutely every way. We’ve had an extended stay in Neonatal Intensive Care, but hoping to be home this week. I’ll be updating my stories with milk drunk faces, mama updates and general chit chat. Gavin, Ethan and I are already obsessed. Welcome to the world my little frog 🐸 💕✨
taking time to R E S T & RECHARGE 🌼
