These photos are a good ten years apart (though we are dressed nearly the same because of the costume party, lol), as I’ve known this guys for well over a decade, and he’s stuck in my life forever.
Tony Robbins says if you’re going to blame someone for all the **** in your life, you better blame them for all the good, too.
Well, if I’m being completely transparent, I’ve blamed this guy for a whole lot. I’ve blamed him for me not moving to Russia. I’ve blamed him for me not attending UCSD for grad school. I’ve blamed him for my insecurities, for times of loneliness, and blamed him for my anger.
After hearing Tony Robbins say that, I immediately sent this message:
“I love you, John. I blame you for always pushing me, for loving me, and for being patient with me. I blame you for being the best father ever, and I blame you for always trying and never giving up. I hope you have a good day 💙 “
Anyway, I was feeling nostalgic lately and thought I’d share.
Sunshine and good feelings with the help of the vines! ☀️

every day you wake up and you’re breathing you have another chance to be better and do better. you got another chance to get closer to your dreams. value it and honor it. keep it moving.
Our 3rd (I think!) annual BUNNY CAKE! 💗🐰 I used to make them with my aunt when I was little, now I get to make them with these two girlies! 👯♀️ SWIPE ➡️ to see our bunnies of the past!
Good Friday so far: finished another embroidery square, baking my favourite ever roasted garlic rosemary bread, sipping on a latte made by my awesome husband and getting some inspiration for future embroidery projects! My mother-in-law and I are currently working on a floral quilt and I have about 27 squares left to do 🙈 but I may take a little break from those to tackle some of the gorgeous projects in this book. Decisions, decisions.//🤷🏻♀️🌸☕️🧵
Been working hard at finishing the new collection that launches next month. Also, there are two big exciting things about this new collection that I’ve been keeping secret, so make sure you stay tuned!
so happy to be doing life together and I love them so much that I don’t mind being in a jam with them (:
I promise I’ll stop spamming with Disney after this, but I had to share because @disneyland
at night time is the most magical of all. ✨
Alethea - when I first met her, I called her Athelea and she did not correct for the longest time until I confronted her cause everyone’s calling her Alethea 😂 this girl seriously is the nicest sweetest most purest being that I know. She gives her 101% to her work (marketing), God and the ones she cares about (most times we need to be telling her to take care of herself). Also, she’s a great singer, shockingly sassy (especially when’s she’s tired) and she loves boba. There’s ain’t nothing bad you can say bout this one here ❤️ swipe right to see the one that sparks her joy (: - @juliahuini
Don‘t be so hard on yourself.
107 photos, 1 costume change, 1 location change, we have 2 semi decent ones to show for it. Happy Good Friday! 108/365
Du sagst, ich sei der Mittelpunkt des Labyrinths deines Lebens und du wüsstest nicht, wie Du den Weg zu mir finden sollst.
Und ich schau Dich an, wie Du da vor mir sitzt - das Blau Deiner Augen verdunkelt von den Wolken, die Schatten auf Deine Seele werfen, während die Wellen von Millionen von Ozeanen zwischen uns gegen unsichtbare Felsen schlagen.
Du sagst, Du verstehst nicht warum ein Lächeln über meine Lippen fliegt, als Du das aussprichst, was so schwer auf Dir lastet wie die Achse der Welt.
Weißt Du, sage ich, in einem Labyrinth kann man sich gar nicht verlaufen. Das ist ein sehr weit verbreitetes Missverständnis. In einem Irrgarten, ja, darin kann man verloren gehen, aber in einem Labyrinth ist das ausgeschlossen. Du musst nur dem Weg folgen, der vor Dir liegt. Manchmal wird es so aussehen als ob Du Dich von der Mitte entfernst, aber wenn Du nur weiter gehst, einen Schritt vor den anderen, Deinen Weg, dann kannst Du gar nicht anders als in der Mitte anzukommen.
Und dann werden keine Weltenmeere uns mehr trennen wenn Du vor mir sitzt. Und dann werden da keine Schatten mehr sein auf Deiner Seele, weil das Gewicht der Welt nun wieder auf den Schultern von Atlas ruht, wo es hingehört.
Wenn Du dem Weg nur vertraust, dem Weg der vor Dir liegt und der dich führt, durch das Labyrinth Deines Lebens.
מה נשתנה הלילה הזה מכל הלילות ?
הרבה השתנה. וטוב שכך.
תודו על כל השינויים, תחבקו אותם, תאמינו בהם.
חגים תמיד עושים לי טוב בלב ובמיוחד החג הזה, שמזכיר לי שבכל רגע נתון קיימת בידינו האפשרות לצאת לחופשי מכל מה שמשאיר אותנו תקועים במקום. אני מודה היום ובכל יום מחדש על שאני בוחרת בחירות שלי. חג שמח, משפחתי, מרגש, מצחיק ומלא באהבת חינם. #חגחירותשמח
The mangums!! Never seen my best friend so happy. What a fun day celebrating them. 💕
A friend once said to me .. "we are the most alive when we're in love"
At the time I didn't really understand what he meant by that. I was happy and I wasn't "in love" 🤷🏻♀️I didn't have a boyfriend, but I had a good job, great friends and family that supported me and I had a lot of fun! 💃
When I met my boyfriend I didn't expect much to be honest, as I said, I had a great time already! 😆But when we fell in love, EVERYTHING changed! It felt like a risk, it was unfamiliar and scary but it was the most EXCITING thing that ever happened to me! 🔥
The adrenaline of falling in love is the adrenaline I feel every day now as I grow my own business 💪
I realize that I want to make my life much more significant, feel truly alive TODAY and not wait for "one day" so I push myself even when I'm scared because I know it will be meaningful 🤩
For me, love is a risk worth taking! Sure, it's an unknown but it is as powerful as life itself! My advice? Full in love every day and take a risk! 🤗😍
What would you risk for love? ❤️
What an amazing event last night @eatingdsna
! Thanks for having me! Your Every Body is Beautiful fashion show was inspiring. There are such incredible people working tirelessly to promote self love & acceptance in this city and I’m so happy to be a part of that community! @mrslaurendary
I’m so proud of you for having your @wearegussloan
LBJ showcased at such a wonderful event! 🖤
New brunch places, handcrafted coffee, slow mornings, and you. 💕
Well...I’m officially the mama to a 6 and 5 year old. This is the new normal. Milly says 5 feels different than 4. 😂 It feels a little different to me too, I can’t lie. All my kids are school age now and there probably won’t be any others; I’m just starting to soak up this new stage in our life as a family of four while slowly letting go of being a mother to toddlers.

I’ve been working on a new project lately that basically involves having an epic conversation with women from all backgrounds, and then taking their portrait. It’s an amalgamation of all the things I love - writing, photography, sustainability and things people are passionate about - and I seriously cannot wait to share more 🎉
This little lady (Harper) had a neonatal follow-up at Children’s yesterday. Basically, we were in a room for two hours and doctor after therapist after nutritionist came in and gave her a check-up. Measuring her. Learning about how she eats at home Checking her core strength, tummy time, reflexes….pretty much all the things.
We are very happy to report that this 3lb baby who once dropped down to 2lbs 14 oz, just 20 weeks ago, is doing AMAZING.
She has hit all her milestones and checked all the boxes, even surpassing some and almost quadrupling her weight at 11lbs 7oz - putting her just barely on the “normal” growth chart but at 17th percentile for her corrected age.
We got a gold star (if that was a thing) from everyone we met with yesterday.
My favorite part of the day was the one on one time with her and watching her take in all of her surroundings at the hospital & happily interacting with everyone she came across. She loved the wagon wide and was amazed by the tall ceilings and the magical forest.
Next up? Just keep doing what we’re doing and continue to get stronger each day! No follow-ups needed (besides the normal ones). 🙌🏽✨
That look your mom gives you when you embarrass her in public and she can’t kill you yet.
Me...every time we are out in public 🤟🏻
i try to be intentional about incorporating more natural products into my self care regime. i’m definitely not perfect, and i don’t use 100% natural products all the time, but i do make an effort to try and make sure more than half the products i use are natural. it can be overwhelming when trying to make the switch to more natural products, which is why i’m thankful @wildcraftcare
makes the transition easier with their new sample kits that just launched. these super cute kits are a way customers can have the opportunity to try products before commiting to them. i love this idea because i have a very hard time finding natural products that deliver the results i want. if making the switch to more natural products is something that aligns with you, or if you simply enjoy natural products, feel free to use my code BLONDE15 at www.wildcraftcare.ca online checkout (linked in bio) to receive 15% off your first time purchase on their site (applies to all products, including sample kits). ✨ #skincare #wildcraftskincare
