Red skirts and cozy socks feel like Christmas which is in 16 days?!? Um yeah I need to get started on my Christmas shopping 😅😅

Tis the season to get lit 🎄
I have a friend who’s on her second round of ivf and she shared with me the transfer didn’t take. The first round was healthy baby boy that worked beautifully and then some random fluke happened and she sent that little boy to heaven. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We met a lady today who had a 3 yr old, she was 51. Let me do the math for you... she was 48 when she got pregnant. Her mom started chatting with me and she was a 73 yr old grandma. It was a random stranger who just happen to share her story with me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today was magically in so many ways [i over storied today] and can’t even explain how much I appreciate the fact that I get to experience the holidays with a little one. For those of who still dreaming of that day, no matter how hard you may be struggling, give yourself some grace and keep dreaming of what you hope for. Magic things happen sometimes. #finnwells #awellsmadeholiday

I got to spend some time w/ my Abuela today... This Christmas will be the 2nd one that I’ll celebrate with her & my Family (from my father’s side)... It’s insane to think that this woman who i’ve grown to LOVE immensely was a complete stranger to me, just two yr.s ago! God’s in the business of reunification & restoration. ♥️ God is GOOD y’all!
It’s been over three years since we’ve had family photos taken. Our pictures this year were scheduled for two days after I ended up miscarrying and I was anxious about it on top of everything else that was going on. Despite it all, I’m so thankful for these pictures and will cherish them forever. Especially remembering the little moments of joy shining through such a difficult time for us. ♥️ So extremely thankful for this girl.

❤️💗RADICAL DHARMA Meet @zenchangeangel. If you don’t know rev. angel Kyodo williams, you should. Buy her books. Attend her workshops. Pay for whatever she offers. Seriously. You’re welcome. I spent the weekend in her wisdom; learning, doing... and undoing. I’ll be spending a lot more time learning from her. I work in the space of women and community building but I wouldn’t consider myself an activist, and I certainly don’t claim ownership of any experience other than my own. All I do is teach some folks some of time how not to be assholes to each other, mainly themselves and other women. For a long time now; I’ve felt like I was missing a major part of the conversation as I bring women together because in my mind “it’s activists that do the “real” work.” Not me. What a shitty way to think and feel. I mean, how can I discuss being in community when I can’t always speak my truth? How can I hold the space for radical openness when I don’t know what I don’t know? Shouldn’t I know more than I do? Is it really ok to just start a conversation and allow it to be what it is? Yes. It is. And I will. In full transparency; I’ve struggled with feeling like a fraud for even thinking I had a right to any conversations around race, grace or intersectionality. But the reality is, whether I put buzz words to my work or not; this is ALL a part of the work I must do as I empower women to empower themselves. If I’m not willing to be imperfect, be a student and do work that matters in my soul; then how can I ask that of others? No, this isn’t me announcing any radical changes about my work. It’s simply acknowledging what is. I will not be afraid to acknowledge race and the dynamics of race within my communities or my life, for that matter. I’m privileged to inhabit a lot of spaces with brilliant women of all backgrounds and I believe that I have a responsibility to address what is, no matter how uncomfortable that may be. Lots more to come as I make my way through my own head. With love and wisdom from Brooklyn. xx
Probably the cutest thing on the internet 😍
Cold and rainy days calls for lots of cuddles and snuggling with handmade blankets. Greyson received lots of gifts, but this custom made gift came with the sweetest note and meaning. We are thankful for our tribe. So, did did your day consist of lots of snuggling and staying warm? #thesnuggleisreal #lifestylephotography
Mom says she gets worried when I’m not posting on Instagram, so this is for you mama! 😂 We’ve gotten in the habit of taking super long walks in Prospect Park to explore all its cool little pockets and surprises. Every time we go, we see something new and beautiful... Also rooster is the cutest lil boy in his new winter coat 😭 #roosterbauer
I don’t know if rainy day naps or snowy day naps are my favorite, clearly the answer is any nap. ❄️💤
He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake... 🎅🏼 Better yet, he's at @mymicmac everyday until December 23 for complimentary photos, private meet and greets and a USB of your photos to take home! . This year includes a brand new interactive train for the whole family to experience. Who wants to virtually travel to the North pole and watch your kiddos' amazement? 🙋🏻‍♀️ . #moremagic #micmacmall #sponsored
After we had Myla we decided to start the tradition of going and picking out our annual Christmas tree at a tree farm🌲 This year Myla was more interested in running around and collecting rocks and sweet baby Sawyer slept the whole time, but hey, we carried on the tradition and we ended up with the perfect tree. Clark Griswold would be so proud😄 Disclaimer: We went to a Christmas tree farm to get our tree. They are harvested for this specific purpose and are replanted in rotation after cutting.
Thank you for always putting a smile on my face and making fun of Reece with me 😂💕
Cozy blankets, cocoa, Christmas trees, and cookies the perfect ending to the perfect day.... I have always loved that my birthday falls during the most magical time of the year. It's like the whole world gets dressed up for my special day. 🤗 Haha Thank you to everyone for sharing my birthday with me both near and far. Cheers to being 25 years young!
|| Sunday || We’re headed to watch The Lion King musical tonight...except the little guy is going on a “special date” with my parents😉 He doesn’t know we’re going anywhere without him, but it almost seems like he has an idea, considering his face..?! Lol. I love musicals and shows and broadways! Anyone else?! Or do you find them boring? I don’t go very often though so I’m excited! The one time I did see a show in New York {the one time I’ve BEEN to New York} with my sister..it wasn’t what we thought and..it wasn’t very appropriate 😳🙊 #oops // I’ve had so much fun with you the past 2 days on stories talking about hospitality and fears that come with that! Most times when we share our struggles, people can relate and connect. I’ve had private DM’s from people that some of things you share, others feel the same and are glad they aren’t alone. So...thanks for sharing. You’re blessing others ✨ • • • • #motherhoodissanctifying #motherhoodvillage #inbeautyandchaos #themindfulapproach #momcommunity #momtog #californiablogger #bestofmom #lifedailymoms #holdyourmoments #cameramama #mamastyle #treasuring_little_memories #homeschoolingfamily #inspiremothers #watchthemgrow #darlingdaily #mothermag #liveauthentic #beauthentic #livingroomdecor #igmotherhood #bestofmom #ig_motherhood #ootdmom #ootdfash #simplymotherhood #homeschoolmom
"Gravity is precisely as strong as it needs to be and if the ratio of the electromagnetic force to the strong force wasn't one percent, life wouldn't exist.

Ever since the cruise (aka a whole 8 days), the girls have been begging for a fancy princess dinner so tonight, Brad got all suited up and we turned our normal dinner into a fancy one. It may have taken longer to "prepare", but the smiles on their faces were priceless and it's fun to know a few extra minutes meant the WORLD to them! #itsthelittlethings
when your sunday feels like defeat & sunday scaries are strong, i highly suggest taking a pic in the mirror, appreciating how far you’ve come & chasing the sunset shadows. and then maybe deep clean your house cause you notice how dirty the mirror (& everything else) is, maybe that’s just me🤷🏼‍♀️ #thewildflowerwords

Trying to sweeten things up with my little Christmas tree ❄️🍦🍭🍬 I was finally able set up this little cutie in my room and I’m so happy about it!! 🧚🏼‍♀️💕 It’s the little things, ya know?
Best 🥑 toast!!!! @hopperandburr
I am a recovering people pleaser 🙈 . Growing up, I was shy and quiet 😶 I went through life making decisions to make others happy - my teachers, family, friends…and I didn’t want to let them down 😔 When it came time for me to go off on my own and start making decisions for myself…I stood by the sidelines, unsure of what I wanted. I had a hard time developing my OWN voice and confidence, because I was so used to following what others wanted from me 😓 . I didn’t start this page with much confidence 🙆🏻‍♀️ In fact, I questioned every post and ig story. I worried if I had what it took to be a leader for my team. And to be honest, I compared myself to the other ladies I worked alongside and adored so much - wondering if I could ever be as tenacious or confident. I was basically…a lost, hot mess 😅 BUT I wanted to make this business work because I needed to do something for MYSELF for once…so despite all the doubt, I did. . Here’s what I’ve learned - 🌻 Those things that you find the most scary, are the ones that help you find your voice + build the most confidence. 🌻You don’t need to be good to start. If it’s something you want, you just need to freaking start. You’ll figure it out, I promise. 🌻Make lists. Make dream boards. Write down what you envision for your life - make sure what you’re currently doing is going to get you where YOU want to go. Don’t lose sight of this. 🌻You are the one who is going to be stuck with your decisions, career and life choices - not anyone else who wants to put in their two cents. At the end of the day, all that matters is that you are HAPPY. No one else needs to understand but you. . Be brave, little wallflowers 🧡🌻
2 of my favorite things ❄️
I really want to approach some of my favourite brands and start working with them! I’m too scared to reach out though 😂 I don’t think I can deal with rejection but I really want to be doing more photos with my boy and help business with professional photos 🙌🏻 any tips appreciated 😘

Hello Monday 👋🐙 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ @annembentley
For nine months, give or take, I stood in front of these windows capturing my growing belly. Today, I capture the little being that grew within. I also capture the life going on around me... a box of wrapping goods needed to wrap all those Christmas gifts, a disassembled pack-n-play that we will soon be selling, and my body that created three miracles in less than 5 years. I feel overwhelmed with all of this and simultaneously grateful. With a major move coming our way, we truly are swimming in life at the moment; this awesome, crazy, exhausting, beautiful life.
If anyone hears from @santa could they let him know that I’m trying to get in touch? My account details have changed from last year and I want to make sure he’s got the right info. Bloody elves have been slack at their data collection this year 🙄
these are a few of my favorite things✌🏻
My happy girl is 17 months today! Here’s her first reaction to bubble gum to celebrate. 😍😂
What a smile! All the beautiful photos you tag me in bring me so much joy. It’s pretty often that my husband will ask me why I’m smiling at my phone, and the answer is YOU and all your beautiful families! @rachel_woytek Thanks for sharing this photo!🧡💫
👋🏽It’s easy to see what’s other people are doing on the internet and feel like you don’t measure up. It’s easy to be that person on the internet who makes everything look perfect. It’s easy because no one really knows what’s going on behind the scenes. So today, when you are scrolling, if you start feeling like you don’t measure up or wishing you had what that person has or feeling a little emptier than usual. Remind yourself that this is the internet. These tiny squares connect magical people together, but they can also be damaging to your mental health. ☕️Take a step back. Reset. Spend time with your family and close friends. Drink a warm drink, read a book, pet your animals, go for a run, bake something. ☃️Instead of scrolling, wishing, lusting, wanting, and more scrolling. Trust me, in my industry it’s ten-fold not to compare myself to others constantly. But? I’ve learned to let it go. React less, and put my phone down. 🌲Boundaries are imperative on Instagram. Days off are okay. The internet will still be there when you back and your self-love tank will be filled up again. 💕 I hope you all have a #magical #sundayfunday wherever you are in the world. 🌍 I’ll be spending mine filling up my self-love tank. 🥰🏃🏼‍♀️🐶👩🏻‍🍳✨☀️ . #mentalhealth . . . . . . #selflove #takeiteasy #sundayselfcare #documentyourdays #holdyourmoments #simpleliving #mybeautifulmess #kindredmemories #mytinymoments #inbeautyandchaos #livethelittlethings #communityovercompetition #thatsdarling #thedarlingmovement #darlingweekend #thehappynow #flashesofdelight #petitejoys #livecolorfully #morningslikethese #theblogissue #finditliveit #prettylittlething #photosinbetween #theeverydayproject #slowliving_

My favorite dessert to have? The one that’s in between Sunday brunch and Sunday dinner 😝 This EGG WAFFLE with VANILLA BEAN ICE CREAM @honeyartcafe is the perfect way to bridge that gap…yum! 😋🍦🍓 Oh btw this is up on the blog now...check it out {link in bio} 👆🏽
It’s been an interesting week over here. Lots of emotions... glad Sunday is here so I can relax a little bit. Oh, and I finally did my toes!

Sundays are for church ⛪ and family 👩‍👧‍👦! . I can remember back to being a kiddo- attending the same church I do now- and my stomach GROWLING because I knew what amazing array of food 🥞🍇🥓🍳would be prepared once we were done! . I also would anticipate what family or individual would be joining us for brunch, as my parents always made a point to include others. . I’m sure it was a crazy sight for all who came to our house, as we were a family of 7 and took up the entire table ourselves. We’d need to add on a couple card tables for our guests, and there would be food upon food down the center. . However crazy it really was, it became a Sunday tradition for our family- one so important that I hope to pass it on with my own children eventually. . What do Sundays mean to you?? . . . . . #catholicmom #catholiclife #familyofseven #humansofjoy #winterphotography #naturallightphotograher #faithandfamily #naturallighting #holdyourmoments #inbeautyandchaos #fearfullyandwonderfullymade #livethelifeyoulove #sundaybreakfast #sundayfeels
Kenny and I are finishing up “The Americans” tonight and we can’t even believe we’ve just about finished the series. IT’S SO GOOD. But now I have a v. important question, what do we watch next?! “The Americans” was kind of intense, so maybe something semi-uplifting?? 🤷🏼‍♀️ • • • • • #foundforaged #humaneffect #Pursuepretty #flashesofdelight #hellohappiness #aquietstyle #Theeverygirlathome #Livethelittlethings #Myviewfromhere #Petitejoys #joyfulliving #Theartofslowliving #intentionalseasons #myperspective #Calledtobecreative #prettylittlethings #livethelittlethings #seekthesimplicity #colorventures #postitfortheaesthetic #verilymoment #thatauthenticfeeling #dailydoseofwhimsy #nothingisordinary #morningslikethese #thriftedfinds #communityovercompetition #justgoshoot #livefullyalive #holdyourmoments #documentyourdays
Low quality pics, high quality time 🎄Yesterday me and @bailey_ptcfl got our first tree as a couple and it was also my first time cutting down a real tree. We also got chais and even did a little sledding. Love this time of year and love that Bailey does all the festive things with me even though he’s a grinch 💕✨
exhausted but happy i get to travel now more for work
Sundays. ♥️ 😴
::Take Over:: Got home yesterday and drove up to our house with a very important package sitting on our doorstep! We were so busy yesterday we kinda just put it to the side and waited to open it today. It’s part of my new at home workout program that I’m starting in January!!! Ekkkk!!! It involves a STEP and 20 minutes of my time-uh please and thank you! Y’all. Little man was just as excited about it. He immediately took over once we opened the step up and I had to pry him off of it for nap time. Hmmm this will be interesting to see if he’ll even let me on his new toy in a couple of weeks... . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #scarymommy #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife 🍎#elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments #transformyourlife
Had a BLAST celebrating the bride to be @caitlynday_ last night! We ditched the typical “bridesmaids” sashes and this one was mine 😂 only 6 more days until I get another sister!
My BFF ornament. ❤️👯‍♀️ Read about it on the blog!! [link in profile]
thanks for the flowers n the lil date night @lesspopular 💐 (also thanks to the cutie @calibrecoffee who made/brought us our drinks ☕️)
Five years ago, she wanted to have an adventure and asked Me 💁🏻‍♀️ to join her because she knew I would say, Yaaasss! Thanks Kel for giving me the most hysterically liberating memory of my life... #thecoco #ballstothewall #nofear #exercisethosedemons ✈️ 🤪 | 📸 @dae_in_wonderland
Sorry, not sorry for all the kid spam. They truly make every day better, and more exhausting. 😴 😍
“Earth laughs in flowers 🌹 🌸🌺” - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Did you know this quote was originally intended to have a bit of a darker meaning behind it? However, when I read a little blessing on my tea it is a happy pick me up! It’s an excellent reminder to live in the moment. To pay attention to the beauty around me & most importantly to appreciate what I have when I have it! Life is something to be celebrated! Happy Self Care Sunday 🌟
Un privilegio ser hija de está mujer. Te amo mami. Feliz día de las madres.
