Today was hard. Today made me feel small.
Today tested my temperament a little.
Today humbled me.
Today was sweaty.
Today was physically exhausting.
Today reminded me that a positive attitude is everything.
But today also made me realize that your crew means even more.
Today was much more than just an image here and a sweet video there.
Today was a day that I remembered why I do this, despite the frustration.
Despite the near tears.
Despite the sore legs and shaky arms.
Today was unfuckingbelievable, but not without some good hard work.

As women, we’re told that we are supposed to love how our bodies change during pregnancy. That we’re doing something magical and it’s the miracle of life. I am so grateful that after a little bit of trying, I’m so close to holding a baby in my arms... But FULL DISCLOSURE, I’ve not loved the changes to my body. And the more women I talk to one-on-one have the same feeling and feel embarrassed and guilty to say it out loud! I have some (feminist) ideas about why we feel this way, but with all the progress we’re making about how we choose to love our bodies, instead of how we’re told we’re supposed to, I also think it’s okay to say it out loud. I can’t wait to be a mother, but I’m also excited for when I get the all clear to get back into the body I felt my best in 💪🏼

Essa é a varanda da minha casa e se me dissessem em 2009 ( ano em que entrei em filosofia na UFSC) que dez anos mais tarde eu teria um bar que em pouco mais de três meses teria praticamente quatro mil seguidores, que estaria numa rua sempre cheia de pessoas eu certamente não acreditaria. Até o começo de 2018 eu tampouco acreditaria nisso. Pois bem, ele existe graças a um tanto de gente que segue acreditando e que estão com a gente todos os dias em que abrimos. Lá estamos e iremos permanecer enquanto houver quem acredite que ruas cheias tornam os lugares vivos e mais seguros. "apesar de você amanhã há de ser outro dia".

The photos/video: Up north snowshoeing, ice castles with some rad lady friends, Women’s March with my mama, necessary dancing snowman.
Behind the scenes: This weekend was a lovely mix of people and alone time. I always feel like three days offers so much more time to rest, spend time with friends, and get all the things done - one day for each. Alas, that’s not how our society works for full-time corporate jobbers. I’m ending the weekend feeling mostly rested, but still restless. Always restless. Funny how emotions and neuroses stick around like that - talking about them once doesn’t make them go away. I really appreciated everyone’s responses to my last post. We are SO all in this messy ass life shit together, you guys. Every time I’m open and vulnerable, I’m reminded of that. It’s why I keep comin’ back for more.
This shook mom (because of a very scary #beam warm up mishap) completely missed the first half of her #floor 🤦🏻♀️ Here’s some highlights using a version of her floor music 🎶 @eurovision Toy🎶 #AllAroundChamp 🏆
