Had another really great night with the kiddos...while Brody was busy playing Fortnite with his buddies Hailey decided to test my drawing/colouring skills. It sure has been awhile, but I had fun creating a poster she can hang up in her room for her. Brandon joined in and did a drawing too, while Hailey made pictures for Brandon and I to hang up in our rooms. We enjoyed a nice dinner together too followed by a yummy dessert that Hailey and I picked up while we were out of town this afternoon. A fabulous day overall - we need more of these cherished moments together. 💕 #cherishedmoments #familytime #drawingtime #qualitytime #spendingqualitytime #lovethesekids
Yesterday on the @ponderosa_and_thyme
feed Katie spoke about things that feed your soul and asked the question...what gives you great joy?
I took a moment to think about what my answer would be and I realized the abundance of joy I have in my life. That’s not to say that things never get tough or that I don’t have bad days....but taking a moment to be grateful for all that does give you great joy in your life makes you realize that joy can be more abundant than you realize sometimes...even in small things.
It made me think of how much love I pour into the work that I do and how much that means to me but most of all I kept coming back to the one thing that I have invested the most love and care into and that is my family. Nothing gives me more joy than being a Mum to these two @amyshedlock
....they fill my life with more joy than I could ever measure!
Take a few moments to think about what feeds your soul...what brings joy to you? Even small things like gentle breezes and beautiful skies, a hug from a friend or the smell of a rose...there is always something that can bring you joy...some days we just need to take a moment to look for it! ♥️

All about the little things...
Little things add up. Sometimes it’s the choices we deem silly, or insignificant, that make the biggest difference after all.
The difference between a good day, or a memorable day, is one small choice away.
Now, was Costco with two kids, a giant ass Mickey and a unicorn🦄 a little tough to navigate? You bet your ass it was 😂
My girl!!! Beautiful day on the slopes and this girls was crushing it!! 💜
Sometimes you are proud of your kids when they do something great like being kind or good grades. Other times you are proud of kids when they are playing pretend fancy restaurant (because they made Shirley temples with leftover maraschino juice) and your son orders his pretend steak medium rare! The way steak is supposed to be cooked! That’s the way mama likes it! #mediumrare #thewayitssupposedtobe #soproud #lovethesekids #shirleytemple

Me and the nutty crew💙💙💗
So we are on Day 3 of Half-Term break and amazingly we are all still alive!! Yes-they drive me crazy.
Yes-they like to fight and scream at each other.
Yes-I still have to juggle my clients and my work around them all week.
......But would I change any of it?
These 3 little monkeys are mine and no matter how mad they are, I look at them and feel love beyond anything I could ever imagine! (Especially when they’re asleep 😜)
I know I should be thankful and enjoy every moment as it does go by so quickly, but it is hard sometimes.
I put myself down all the time that I’m not doing a great job as a mum but all I can say is- I’m doing the best job that I can.
Everything I do in my life is for these precious little humans that I’ve created, and as mum you put yourself last after absolutely everyone else.
All I hope is that they are happy and always feel love in their lives.

Was listening to a little Thomas Rhett this am in my truck and really took in the words to the song...
Talked about how all he could think about was turning #sixteen
and then older and older he got.
Made me think about my kids who are so #special
to me and how I don’t want them to grow up! I am taking every opportunity to go on vacation with them and experience different things in life! They will both be sixteen so soon and I just can’t handle it yet!!
Stay young forever my little #elm
. Love you more than you’ll ever know!
