Hey mama! . A sweet, short reminder that even in this hectic, crazy holiday season, our littles are watching us. Our constant shadows react to our voice, mimic our gestures and absorb our energy - naughty or nice! . Even my older elves still observe my moods, and respond to them. . May they see my kindness, patience & compassion towards others. May they treat others with the same respect and love that their mother strives to give - every day. . Remember your minis are learning from your every move! ♥️
“If we don’t allow others to try, we’re just hypocrites” Elder Renlund If we truly ask ourselves how much more we expect from people than we can physically do ourselves, what’s the answer? In this world, I often think how quick people are to judge before taking a step back and trying to understand. Let seek to understand before we seek to be understood.❤️ #wifetoanentrepreneur
Blended families are on the rise. Many of us are thrust into an unfamiliar world of "step"—stepmothers, stepfathers, step-siblings, step-grandparents. And let's be honest, we're not all the Brady Brunch. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️ Becoming a blended family doesn’t always happen seamlessly overnight. Best-selling author and blended family expert Ron Deal will be speaking at Building a Brilliantly Blended Family on January 26th! He will help you cultivate a game plan to build connection and intimacy in your home while keeping your marriage strong. 💪 Click the link in our bio to get your 🎟️ today! . . . #blendedfamily #relationships #marriage #divorce #remarry #love #connection #communication #children #stepfamily #stepmom #stepdad #stepchild #siblings #coparenting #firsthingsfirst
I found my “someone” and am daily grateful as life is such a sweeter journey with a true supportive partner in life. 😊❤️✨. The same obstacles seem so much easier when one is equally yoked with a helpmate who shares same foundation and values. I don’t take that blessing lightly. Being a blended family we each came out of broken divorce situations and knew exactly what we were looking for ourselves and for our children and what not to repeat and are openly appreciative and supportive of one another 🙏💕✨. I consider myself an independent spirit who never thought I’d remarry and yet now can’t imagine life without my hubby because of how we complete and support one another. #love #truelove #book #poem #quotes #quoteoftheday #blessed #soulmate #passion #partner #wife #husband #marriage #husbandandwife #couple #couplegoals #christian #inlove #divorce #secondchances #lovewins #pillowtalk #family #blendedfamily #values #passion #respect #faith #happy #thankful
With all of the chaos in this life, I am thankful for these two & their love for one another! They are my constant reminder to cherish family, celebrate each other, and always forgive 🥰

Stepmom life is hard. It can be stressful. And isolating. But over the years I've learned that I don't have to feel alone. Which is why I started my blog, and why I started my Stepmom support group on Facebook. Because we need each other, ladies! And not just to bitch about the ex-wife or complain about the stepkid's attitude. We need to know that someone else went through, or is now going through the same thing. We need a shoulder to cry on. We need someone to listen. If you are looking for these things, please come join our group. Click the link in my bio, and go to "Stepmom Facebook Group." We would love to have you. ❤. . . . . . . . . . . #stepmom #stepkids #stepfamily #blended #blendedfamily #blendedmotherhood #stepmomproblems #stepmomlove #stepmomlife #stepmomstrong #honestmothering #honestmotherhood #familyof7 #amomentinmotherhood #imsobloggingthis #pittsburghblogger
When Lauren reached out to contribute to the site I was super excited. This mama's story of her unique co-parenting arrangement and how it has transformed her life is a must read. Families are created and come in many ways and Lauren's family speaks to this truth. . Please welcome Lauren while she takes over our IG for a glimpse into her co-parenting arrangement, her life, and how she advocates for authentic and holistic conversations about Black mama mental health. . . . . . #motherhood #blackmamas #blackmotherhood #singlemom #mom #singleparent #parenting #parents #parenthood #mentalhealth #pocmentalhealth #emotionalhealth #coparenting #blendedfamily

If you want to know how I do the things I do or how I achieve my goals just ask my Beautiful Daughter! @let.us.be.infinite ❣ Who said ❣- Anyone who has known me since my teennage years will know just how many heartbreaks I've been through - & I don't just mean by boys. So, let's face it. People can just leave. & that is the most terrifying thing I have ever learned. If the only man I ever truly needed left - as unintentional as it was - left before I was done needing him... then it's fair game for anyone else to decide it's not worth it. To decide that I am not worth it. My abandonment issues and trust issues run deep, & it's something I've had to deal with most of my life. But eventually, there comes a time when someone comes along who helps make those things go away. It's taken a lot of work to get where we are, but I couldn't have done it without him. It takes a special kind of man to accept someone elses daughter & consider her his own. I was never a person he had to win over if he wanted to be with my Mother. I was never a package deal. I've never been the step-daughter. I'm the daughter that was born before he had the chance to meet me. . #Studio #UntilInfinityImagery #Photography #FeelGood #PositiveEnergy #GoodVibes #PhotoOfTheDay #LoveUnending #BlendedFamily #SimplyFamily #Parents photo of @daddienotch ( Jamal Williams & Wife/Queen Sydney Williams) #reggaehiphop #hiphopreggae #UndergroundHipHop #WrapFm #bboxradio #RockDaHouse #Artist #wife #family #king #queen
If there is one thread in our story that can be pulled over and over, it is situations that seemed hopeless. More than once in the process of blending two families, stepping into God’s callings and overcoming the obstacles of life, it all felt very hopeless. We have learned a valuable lesson in light of what felt hopeless...God works ALL THINGS for the good of those who love him. Out of our faithfulness, he has shown his goodness. So moving forward, what may seem hopeless to us is a situation where we can have HOPE because even when it does not go the way we feel it should (and it rarely does) the Lord is still working for our good. He turns hopeless into hope-filled. #livewithhope

I hope you cruise through this week just like my boys were cruising through #griffithpark 8 years ago! 🏃‍♂️ Today they are beginning finals in their Junior year of high school and turn 17😱 years old on Friday. Where has the time gone? 😭 This was such a fun age, exploring and enjoying life together. I am so blessed to have been able to help raise them and be a part of their lives. It's hard to imagine how all our lives will change in the next few years as they go to college 🎓 and continue on their paths. . . . . . . #momlife #momofboys #boymom #twins #stepmom #bonusmom #bossmom #blendedfamily #awakenedfamily #consciousparenting #hiking #nature #chingona #chingonaaf #chingonachat #fuelyoursoul #latinx #latinxmommy #latinxparenting
Tom’s FIRST TEXT to me! 🥰 😱😱😱 Going through my old photos and stumbled upon this tearjerker! Have no idea why I took a screenshot....no doubt to send it to my bestie to say “LOOK!” 😂 “He looks sweet and he’s handsome (always helpful)”, I thought. A proud, unashamed #fatherdaughter selfie...he wasn’t trying to hide her or worse....pretend she didn’t exist! Some people actually do this!! . After the breakup of a long term relationship, I was back on the ‘shelf’ so to speak.... as ‘damaged goods’......An expression that has never been said to my face but I’m sure has been said about me! Oh, and lest we forget my ‘baggage’....three children from my two previous relationships...Such a strange expression considering they can’t be stowed away or unpacked 🤔 I think ‘tails’ is a much more appropriate metaphor....at least until age 16! . Now, even at my lowest point I never actually regarded myself as “damaged goods”. I knew that I had arrived at this point because of my conviction that I was worth more than what I was receiving, that love had to be “better than this”. I was strong, grown and most importantly knew exactly what I wanted and definitely did NOT want in a prospective partner....experience taught me this!! . Tom was such a blessing, “Too good to be true” at some points, I thought. He was loving, strong but gentle, hilarious and care-free. Instantly we were best friends!! From the second week after meeting we were inseparable. I knew he was a keeper when he surprised me Ed Sheeran concert tickets 🎫 because he knew I was a FAN! 🤩 . He is such a wonderful role model to all the children! I hope Bella and Gigi don’t have to kiss a lot of frogs 🐸 before they meet a prince 👑 like you! If the boys grow up to be even half the man that you are I will be a happy old woman! . Fast forward 4 years, throw 2 babies into the mix, and I love you more everyday my Tomlinson 😍😍. . . . . . . #thatblendedfamily #howitallstarted #bestie #cute #blackwomanwhitemen #followus #interracialcouple #theone #love #momanddad #mumanddad #throwback #mixedracecouple #rolemodel #lovebirds #soulmate #blinddate #swirllove #swirldating #meanttobe #blendedfamilylove #blendedfamily

✂️ As a hairdresser, I obsess over my hair & my kiddos hair. I have a hard time not messing with my own. I always say imma refrain from cutting everyone's hair, but then I find myself holding my comb & shears. Even looking at this photo I'm like damnnnnn, my hair looks tragic. I should shower... ♡ Normally I put them in a salon chair I have at home, but i put em in the bath & decided to cut it, as Haylens bangs were in her eyeballs, & she effortlessly grows a mullet. Her nickname is Joshepina Dirt.... ♡ Hensleys Momma, doesnt want her to have a haircut just yet, so I do a "pretend haircut" but shes very attentive to make sure I'm holding my shears & that it makes a chopping sound or she'll call me out on my bullshit! Plus I dont want her to feel left out, so I'm okay with faking it. . . . . . #hairdresser #hairstylist #hairdresserprobs #honestmotherhood #bathtime #haircutsforkids #kidshaircut #momminainteasy #modernmoms #bonusmom #heaventhroughmylens #lifeasmama #momaf #stopdropandmom #sahmlife #blendedfamily

🎁 One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves as stepmoms is an understanding of just how amazing it is that our husbands loved us SO much that they were ready and willing to give marriage another shot, even after knowing firsthand just how badly it could all turn out. And one of the greatest gifts we can give our husbands is deep respect and appreciation for their courageous love and bravery 🎁 #stepmom #blendedfamily #secondwife #stepmomproblems #blended #blendedfamilylove #blendedandblessed #bonusmom #bonusfamily #christmaspresents #merrychristmas #family #wife #mom #stepdaughter #gift #truelove #bravery #courageouslove #secondchances #remarriage
A December sunset in downtown Raleigh 😍 #nofilter needed when it's God's creation shining. I've been dealing with some minor anxiety this school year, but what's really grounded me and reminded me to be grateful and rest is the sky, the moving clouds, the sunrises when I get up crazy early (for me) to take my stepson to high school, the snow, and the sunsets after a day with my daughter. It's cliché to turn to nature to be reminded of God's power and goodness and creativity, but it's been a comfort to me.
Co-parenting win. . Every year we venture out into the Drysdale’s Tree Farm field with our “extended” family to help them pick a tree. It’s something we have done for the last 4 Christmases with my step-son’s mom and her husband, and his family. We have a simple, fake tree already up. But it’s the experience that makes the memories. . We start off late, the kids usually play in mud/water/slush before we even get out into the field. Someone spills hot chocolate. A baby falls and gets snow in her boots. Someone gets too tired to walk. . But we laugh. A lot. The kids play in the snow with the adults and giggle until snot comes out of their noses. The baby dances to the festive music being played by the fire. The hunt for THE perfect tree is a beautiful adventure in itself. And yes - at least one person calls out “Oh come on, just pick one already! It’s going to be dead and at the end of the road in a week anyway!” *cough - my husband - cough* . It chaos and imperfect. But I know these days will live on in their hearts forever. . . #christmaswiththecrazies #coparenting #blendedfamily #goodforthesoul #parentingwin
How’s that for some motivation 😉 Everyone knows the definition of insanity right...? I have ideas about changes I want to make but as I’ve heard, “the fortune is in the follow through” and that’s where I still struggle a bit.

My MCM. Why do you put up with me? I hope I’m worth all the laughs and pains. A healthy relationship is work, there is no doubt in that. Our marriage didn’t happen by luck or accident. It is a result of consistent investment of time, thoughtfulness, forgiveness, affection, prayer, respect, and a rock solid commitment. #ilovebeingyourwife #marriage #couplesgoals #adventuretime #iloveus #growth #faith #godfirst #husbandswhopray #blendedfamily #spreadlove #livingmybestlife #

Happy Anniversary! How can it be? We’ve navigated what feels like a lifetime of events in just a short 2 year timespan. Crazy! One day we will look back on these years and know the challenges only strengthened us. Thank you for being my constant force. You push me out of my comfort zone - because you believe in me. We are better together. Love you forever! Happy Anniversary #loveyou #blendedfamily #husbandandwife

I'm so glad we've finally told BM exactly what she's done to her son and to our family. It's not gone down well but after 8 years of her abusive behaviour it feels like a massive weight has been lifted and now she won't even come and visit her son because she doesn't like the things we've called her out on 🙈 #mumoftheyear #narcissist #narcissistmother #boundaries #respect #control #pawns #emotionalabuse #blackmail #stepmum #mum #motherhood #mumofthree #stepfamily #blendedfamily #noremorse #youractionshaveconsequences #toxicpeople #bullying #adultbully #coparentingwithanarcissist #fixingwhatyoubroke #steppingup #blendingbeautifully
