That’s EXACTLY how I feel about muenster cheese too, Carter 😜Brothers who eat sandwiches together stay together. Ending this super busy Sunday just feeling so blessed and ready to take on a brand new week. We haven’t had a “stay at home day” in a good two weeks, so tomorrow we are doing just that and probably not going to leave the house..how’s that for some good Monday plans? Hoping the boys think it’s as good of a plan as I do 😅😆 I think we could all use a super slooooooowwww day and if we’re lucky, it may even rain..one of my absolute favorites 🤞🏼
Spent an amazing weekend with friends welcoming the first day of Fall! We welcomed Autumn at our friends homestead with a lantern hike, fresh from the garden pumpkin painting, yummy food, and lots of fun with friends. Even the weather was joining in with the PERFECT fall sweater weather :) . ⠀
Pretty sure if I attempted to leap, look, smile and land it all while managing to keep my sunglasses on ... it would not be near as cute, but I’m guessing it would be funny 😉. #whpmotion @joyfolie
Apple 🍎 picking with these two goofballs.
|| i can’t quit you, baby ||
Goodbyes are the worst. No one likes them, especially this guy 😩 See you again soon (real soon!) beautiful California coast!
The weekend flew by once again 🍂 but at least we can finally say: happy fall! Johnny and I spent the last few days shopping for a house — wish us luck🤞🏼
Time goes so fast at this stage. Our free moments are consumed with dance class and soccer practice and school activities and birthday parties and when we have true time to ourselves, sometimes we just want to sit in our beds and read a book without having to talk to anyone or go anywhere.
We are in really busy seasons. We all have struggles. This isn't post-college where you see, text, and talk to your buddies several times a day, regularly meet for drinks after work, and spend your weekends socially at the beach with magazines and cocktails in hand. You don't have time for that. Your network of fifty acquaintances is whittled down to a handful of close friends because it's literally all you have time for.
You don't have time for pettiness and drama. You don't have time to hold anyone's hand unless it's your child's. You don't have time to be around people where you have to walk on eggshells in fear the smallest thing will hurt someone's feelings.
You just don't dang have time for anybody who isn't low maintenance.
So to my low maintenance friends, thank you.
Thank you for understanding that I'm busy and when I don't regularly communicate with you, it sure ain't personal.
Thank you for understanding that I might feel overwhelmed and for reaching out and offering to help instead of being judgy about things you're assuming.
Thank you for including me in your plans even when I've turned down your invitations a hundred times before.
Thank you for not discussing your "concern" about me to other people.
Thank you for being chill and not overanalyzing things.
Thank you for being able to pick up exactly where we left off when, because of our particular life seasons, we haven't seen each other in a while.
Thank you for being authentically kind and trustworthy and not holding grudges.
Thank you for being easy.
Thank you for being there no matter what.
monday mantra: i don’t take for granted, i get grateful. 🤗💍
weekends are for wandering
They’ll always have someone to party with. 🎉
I wish I could make a glass bubble appear - upon you, upon this place, upon this moment in time.
I wish I could protect you from all the things your body contests.
I wish I could have you running free and careless forever.
Then I wouldn't care what would happen to the rest of the world and its polluted, fluoridated, intoxicated, brominated, perfumated, radiated, chlorinated, fake, plastic, toxic, synthetic nature.
I never thought having a child could change a person so profoundly. If I had known, I probably wouldn't have wanted any. My (material) life was pretty fun and fine... But then there was you and my world has turned upside down.
I will never stop saying it's hard.
But there is beauty and truth and love.
Con estas caras de concentración arrancamos la temporada de helados 🍦
Some of the trees we get to see on our walks 🌱🌳🌲🍃🍂🍁 Any ideas what kind of trees these are? 🤷🏻♀️
I love the look on Gwen's face, pure joy! 😄 We've tried swings in the past but she was NOT about them. 😑 Now she can't get enough and keeps asking to swing when we go on our walks 😆
So blessed to be her Mommy. 💛
My favorite hello and my hardest goodbye. Lam niyo yan. Hahaha 😘❤💑
