Happy birthday to me!!
I love you baby girl. I pray you continue to grow in wisdom, peace and love all around you.
These have been the most exciting, trying, transformative, and fulfilling years of my life. With a degree that means SO much to me in hand, I can’t wait to share with the world all I have gained from my precious time here 🎓🎉 #gratefulheart #anditsjustthestart
My lil yard work buddy. Today he told me he like doing yard work. Last year he would start and then be over it real quick and then bugged out about doing it. As I looked at the small rose bush in the front yard when we were done today, it reminded me that each bloom happens at its own pace. It is just like each one of us, the potential to be amazingly beautiful, the potential to decide today is the day to ___________ (full in your blank). The process to get to that point to “burst” open varies with different blooms, the difficulty does to, but when kept it does happen. The sight and fragrance are lovely.
While I don’t think X would appreciate me saying he is lovely, today reminded me and filled me with much gratitude in watching the process of blooming in those around me. It also built within me a deeper desire to keep pressing and enjoy experiencing my own process in being my best version.

I didn’t style my hair this weekend, I didn’t do anything but relax with family, drink a few good beers and let my kids bond with their cousins. You know what’s the most important thing ever? Family. Appreciating the small things, like, a blue sky on your favorite part of your favorite drive. A good beer on Saturday after noon, visiting your husbands Italian Grandma who’s personality just makes your heart smile, and trading dirty jokes with his grandpa over dinner and making his grandpas wife blush. Watching your sister in laws family in action and being equally envious and relieved that all families have moments of frustration and irritation amongst the chaos of every day life. It was a quick weekend but it was needed, we relaxed, we gained perspective, we refreshed our lives instead of my hair. I hope everyone had a good weekend and your Sunday has been full of nothing but relaxation. #centraloregon #curlygirlmethod #curlyhaircare #notwocurlsarealike #curlyhair #explorebend #appreciationpost #morethanjusthair #oregonstate #pacificnorthwest #pnw #grateful #gratefulheart #family #familyiseverything

HEART MELTING MOMENTS:
E helping his little sister down and then back up the hill on his own.❤️
This was after making her breakfast and before cheering her on at climbing later that day (scroll left to see my brave monkeys). 🐵
He’s at an age where he and his buddies call each other names, laugh at pranks and try to assert their size and strength for the alpha male position.
But when he started trying this behaviour out on his sister, we were so not okay with it. So what did we do?
We set firm but loving boundaries.
We upped our one on one time with each.
We coached our girl to stand up for herself.
I trusted we would get the help we need and that same week @biglifejournal
sent out a friendship challenge which they loved doing for each other. Then a friend suggested a great emotion coaching and climbing program to help our almost teenager because apparently I talk to much😉 He’s loving it and this week we brought little sister and they had a blast together.
It’s far from perfect and after watching a video on sibling rivalry with @drlauramarkham_ahaparenting
I can see what I could have done differently in the early years and I highly recommend you follow and read her books, especially if you have little ones.
Wherever you are on the journey, remember we never stop learning and we’re never alone.❤️ Nicole
What heart melting moment with siblings can you share?
I hope you are expecting something wonderful to occur this week. Nothing is too great or too small to happen. Set your intentions from now. Speak life into that situation now. Things happen when you PAY ATTENTION to the positive. Let’s get intentional about our spaces. Perspective. #slaytheclutter
Happy Birthday ummi, telling you I love you is an understatement because you’re my jewel of inestimable value😍. Thanks for always, thanks for your prayers, words of encouragement and advice 💕. You’re blessed now and always❤️. I pray you get all you wish for and more mama💋. Many more fruitful years ahead pretty momma💕❤️💋. #mother #happybirthday #blessed #gratefulheart #alhamdulilahi
“You could be anywhere tonight, but you’re here with yourself. That’s cool.”
Confidence is something I struggle with each day. My hair is too frizzy, my skin is too pale, I am awkward, I drive too slow, I get lost easily, I can't get my dog to listen 🤣 ... Thankfully, we can build our confidence throughout our lives. It is never too late. I hope...😉 Lack of confidence almost stopped me from coaching. Who am I to think I could build a dream life for myself just by having a healthy lifestyle and helping others do the same?
I decided to TRY. And now I KNOW what I can do. I know the possibilities and they are endless!
Do not allow your self-doubt to stop you. Tell that voice in your head to quiet down cause you are too busy kickin butt.

Lazy Sunday Vibes.
Love my little 🦁
Super exhausted from the week and even thinking about the week to come....
But more importantly feeling thankful. Feeling grateful. Feeling blessed.
The sunny day. The breeze tonight. Work flow. Good souls. Just thinking about ALL of these things —> HASHTAG BLESSED.
Sunday night refections. 💞
Hello new week to come!💫
I’m always in awe of all the things that had to come together to bring me to this place and space in life. It’s incredible and I always feel humbled on my airplane day when I think of it all. There are so many things that confirm for me every day that I have found my soulmate and am the luckiest girl to be the daughter of my mother and father, and more recently a daughter and sister in law as well 💖
But what I’m most keenly aware of this year is that my daughter growing inside me will be my first blood relative that I will get to talk to, hold and know. It’s a connection that I am already cherishing and it’s overwhelming to think about honestly💜 To have a human that is half me and half my favorite person is pretty amazing and I’m so glad that somehow I ended up on this side of the planet in Philadelphia to find it all 🙏🏽✨💞

I hope you look up from your phone and live in the moment, smile at strangers, take in the beauty of everyday life.
I hope you treat everyone with the love and kindness that you embody.
I hope that you see others through their eyes, looking into their soul.
I hope you see past physical appearances and truly see others as unique beings without judgment.
I hope you speak your truth, express yourself, especially when you would normally stay quiet.
I hope you find your voice and make yourself heard.
I hope you honor yourself and take up space in this world.
I hope you expand in a way that exhilarates your soul and terrifies your ego.
I hope you take risks and try something new that makes you feel uneasy and outside of your comfort zone.
I hope you love without the promise of anything in return.
I hope you challenge yourself to learn the language of someone’s heart, and I hope you show them how they deserve to be loved.
I hope you figure out what you want your life to look like and start taking action.
I hope you find the courage to walk away from anything that makes you feel less than, not enough, or too much.
I hope you trust your gut without question.
I hope you love yourself in all of your phases.
I hope you make big moves—move your soul, move your body, move cities, move others, move mountains.
I hope you start to see your reflection in those who love you, mirroring the love you have within.
I hope you have wild unforgettable adventures.
I hope you begin to see even a fraction of just how gorgeous you are.
I hope you understand you’ll never truly know the immensity of the beauty of all that you are.
I hope you feel magic in your cells, in all parts of your being.
I hope all of this for you..
and for me..
and for the entire world.
