So last week...I was in warm, sunny Jamaica celebrating my 10 year anniversary. I can not believe we're home already. I honestly was dreading coming home and back to the cold before we even left! But do you know what...the last few nights this is how I felt. Home is where my heart can rest. And home is where my baby is. I missed our LO so, so much. And while you can't beat the scenery in Jamaica, I love my view from home the most. . . . #momlife #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodunplugged #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodrising #dailyparenting #honestmotherhood #ig_motherhood #mom_hub #momsofinstagram #missedmybaby #mytinymoments #parenting #mommyblogger #bestofmom #ohheymama #parenthood #mommylife #mommylove #treasuringlittlememories #motherdaughtertime #momlifeisthebestlife
Yay for Friday!! Double yay for a three day weekend! What’s everyone planning to do?
This is us. I’ve never really addressed this before, but the reason why you don’t see me on this account is because... The Lola Diaries account is not about me, it never was. I created this account as an online diary with photos used as entries of what I witnessed every day in our home because that’s how I convey my thoughts. I saw how my husband (the youngest of nine siblings total) took immense care of his mother throughout the nearly 10 years she struggled with dementia. This disease is heartless and there’s no cure for it; but, what Romie had done for his mother through nothing but love is he helped her live her best life despite the degenerate disease. When everyone was telling him that he couldn’t do it, that it was too hard and she was better off in a nursing facility, he didn’t listen. He was one of the very few who visited Lola when she was in an adult foster care home for a few months… every.single.day. He was there. I know because I witnessed it. They say if you ever want to see how a person will treat you then take a good look at how they treat their parents, especially when they are elderly and need more care. For years, I was his only witness and I selfishly didn’t appreciate all that he did for his mother until I started to document the night he had to rush her to the emergency room after she had fallen over in her wheelchair and cracked her head on the concrete floor. I can still hear how his voice shook over the phone when he called to tell me. When I arrived at the hospital, I witnessed the depth of sadness in his eyes and composure… as if he felt that it was all his fault... had he only been more careful with the wheelchair then it wouldn’t have hit that pebble and sent them both flying onto the ground. I’ll never forget anything from that night and I know neither will he. As a professional photographer, I captured everything on my nice camera so that we would never forget about the beautiful events in our lives, but I did this for my clients and their family... I had forgotten about my own. Maybe it wasn’t the ideal family that I had initially envisioned in my mind because there was never a child to include... (cont’d in comment box)
This girl is making me want pink hair 😍❄️ #harleighsfive
This morning on her way out the door she asked me to sing her a song, “sing Wise Men mama” - it’s what she calls ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’, by Elvis 🎶⠀ •⠀ We walked down the stairs holding hands as she made up the lyrics and sang along with me, and I died a little on the inside. This love, I thought, this love is so big, it aches.⠀ •⠀ I used to think this song was just written for lovers, but these days I sing it to her. “Take my hand, take my whole life too, for I can’t help falling in love with you”. She wins, I’m hers forever. Sorry dunc 😬⠀ • Pic by my fave spirit @saraspectrum#Motherhoodrising #unitedinmotherhood #girltribe #mylittle #waverlyheron #mamahood #honestmotherhood #wellness #selfcare #selflove #gratitude #home #motherhoodunplugged #postpartum #thefirstfortydays #honestlymothering

Has anyone else tried this French style yogurt “QUI”by yoplait? It’s amazing 😜tastes soooooo good. #yoplait #yogurt

When babe doesn’t want to listen to you anymore. 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ #toddlerlife #16monthsold
Is anyone else kind of sick of having to wait to post photos based on when you’re more likely to receive “likes”? I just want to share my work to be honest, based on my statistics these images don’t reach barely half as many people as a photo of me in a bikini or my face. I swear it’s a trap. I love this photo, I’m gonna share it at 8am cause I want it in my feed. I also want to shoot more in the forrest with happy easy going families, that’d be damn fine by me 🌿 My spots are super limited at the moment leading up to Mitch heading back to work so if we’ve spoken about a session, let’s lock it in 🥰
We finally found the perfect colors to paint the inside of our house. Excited to get started.
Hi, story telling is an amazing way that young kids learn. JJ here is telling me in broken phrases about rapunzel. I know one day I will roll my eyes at this story told to me for the hundredth time. But right now, I'm so happy that he's finally talking!⁣ ⁣ #storytelling #toddlerlife #boymom
I am obsessedddddd. It’s a little ridiculous actually...I’m always in search of something to help energize me, especially after Connor’s bedtime when I’m exhausted but need to get so much done. . I feel good about using this @littlemoonessentials “Tired Old Ass” mist 😂👍🏻 the ingredients are just distilled water, witch hazel, and essential oils, and spraying it on my face is an instant wake-up! . Thank you @littlemoonessentials !!!!! . . . . . . #littlemoonessentials #littlemoonpartner #LittleMoonForYou #motherhood #lds #motherhoodrising #honestmotherhood #familiesareforever #familytimeisthebesttime #igmotherhood #motherhoodinspired #thisismotherhood #momentsinmotherhood #motherhoodmoments #motherhoodrocks #motherhoodunited #myhonestmotherhood #candidmotherhood #ldsmom #ldschurch #realmotherhood #motherhoodjourney #ldsblogger #ldsfamily #mormonlife #ldslife #mormonchurch #mormonblogger #ldswomen #ldsmama
That’s NOT healthy! How many times did we hear those words growing up? Maybe all the time. Maybe never. I have said that to myself 1000 times. And you know what? Those words make me feel like I am depriving myself and then I would normally binge. I vowed to change this pattern with my kiddos. We don't talk about healthy vs unhealthy. They are kids. They need to enjoy life too. They need to experience the fun of candy 🍭, ice cream 🍦, and my favorite chips of all time. Do they get veggies with every meal? Yep. Do they drink water all day? Yep. Do they get fruit for snacks? Yep. But I don’t want them to be scared of food. I don’t want food to be a negative thought in their brains. So...enjoy the good stuff, little one. You do a great job every day. One snack isn’t going to negatively affect you. Ps...she offered me one. And I took it. #letthembelittle #honestmotherhood #uniteinmotherhood

I feel like you can tell a lot about Micah's personality by this photo😍. He lives for fun. He is so spunky and hilarious and cute as they come. He LOVES dinosaurs which is funny because none of the other boys ever cared about them. He loves people but can play for hours alone. Sometimes I struggle with giving him enough one on one attention because I'm doing school with the older boys and Eva is so high maintenance that she requires a lot of my attention. I want to be more intentional with him but it is a struggle. If any other mamas have ideas or tips I'd love to hear them! • • • • #simplychildren #magicofchildhood #childrenseemagic #letthembelittle #clickinmoms #momtog #momswithcameras #cameramama #joyfulmamas #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #uniteinmotherhood #mumlife #pixelkids #documentyourdays #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #petitejoys #motherhoodunplugged
You wouldn’t know it from the pic or from the cuteness in my stories, but daycare said Traycen cried the entire ride home from school on the bus—and at pickup.⠀ ⠀ Still not sure what triggered it, but all we could get out of him was, “I sad.” Breaks my heart, but I’m also glad that a little song and dance in music class can bring that sweet smile back, even if only momentarily.💙🎼💙 ⠀ ⠀ #musictherapy #musicclass #preschooler #kidsactivities #toddleractivities #autismawareness #autismspeaks #asd #lightitupblue #kidsautism #disabilitylittle #intentionalparenting #purposedriven #prayingmom #parenting #gentleparenting #mysonshine #autismrecovery #motherhood #ohheymama #mothering #fourthtrimester #motherhoodrising #mommyandme #motherhoodthroughinstagram #autismmom #autismparents #autismfamily #autismlife #voices
I’ll be honest, when 2019 rolled around, I didn’t spend time goal planning because I just had one main goal in my head - have this baby. It’s obviously going to happen, but I feel like I’ve been climbing this giant mountain since I was in high school, when the desire to become a mother came to light. Today officially kicks off the last week of my second trimester, which means in about three months, this little babe is going to be here in this world. . So much of my time over the past few days has been spent thinking about the legacy I create and leave behind for my family. I’ve set personal and professional goals, but I’ve really been thinking hard about how I’m going to capture my life and this new journey of motherhood. I want this babe to have a visual story of what life looks right now, both the good and the bad. . Over the years, I’ve pushed my personal work aside to focus my energy and artistic creating on my clients. Occasionally I’d find time to create something just for me, in some form or another, but not as often as I used to. I want to do more of that with my family. Not only that, but I have decided that I need to start printing a family yearbook every year. I do print a lot of my photos, but I have about a million loose prints scattered around my house. Those will get tucked away and passed down, of course, but there is just something about a book. Maybe it’s the organization and convenience of having everything in one product, but I think it would be so cool to create these books to pass down for generations. Not only that, but a good heirloom for me and Lou to hold onto as we navigate our new path in life together. I think that much of this year will be a blur, and I want to soak up and remember every little bit of it. I want to remember the joy and the struggle and the pain and the overwhelmingly beautiful parts of life, and it all starts with designating just a little bit of time to take the pictures and be more intentional with my time. . So that is how I’m going to spend my snow day tomorrow. I’m going to start a system and create my 2018 yearbook. If you want to see the final product, let me know in the comments! #bestgoals2019

Hey there 👋🏻 I’m Cullen, a Marine wife, mother, and contributor to this charming community. I had just moved again and given birth to my second child when I received a message from Mary-Kate, a fellow military wife, who introduced me to the lifestyle platform she and her friends were getting ready to launch. As she described their hopes for Mothergood Co., I envisioned a community of women that shed light on the beauty and hardships of motherhood with honesty and encouragement. ⁣ ⁣ I myself was seeking a community of women that were courageous enough to share the beautiful and also not so “instagram worthy” moments with one another in hopes of fostering authentic friendships built upon love and trustworthy knowledge. I couldn’t believe my ears. Three friends had gotten together and dreamt up something that spoke so profoundly to my heart, it was as if they had given words to a dream of my own imagination. I had to be a part of that. ⁣ ⁣ In my current season of life with two under 2, I can’t always count on scheduled time to get work done or even energy enough to stay up past my kids bedtime, and yet I’ve never felt more supported by this team of women, made up of stay-at-home, work-from-home, and full-time working mothers. Before becoming a mom I worked as a marketing account manager. I have enjoyed getting to use my skill set and the chance to be creative again — #mothergood is my blue flame. What’s yours? Thanks for being here ❤️
I did maternity photos for the first time ever and it was so much fun! We also did a milk bath which was so relaxing despite being half naked with a big ol’ belly. I’m going to try and put a blog post together soon, maybe this weekend since daddy took Ashton to AZ to visit Jordan so it’s just me, papaya and poppy. ✨ • • • #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #childhoodunplugged #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #letthembelittle #momlife #mommyblogger #littleandbrave #lifestyle #momlifeisthebestlife #boymom #spencerunlimited #lovelysquares #twoundertwo #idaho #smallshopowner #boho #farm #secondtrimester #pregnancy #youngliving #essentialoils #oilymama

Peace & Calming... making my kids sleep since 2013 ✌🏻 ⠀⠀ And they do it themselves. ⠀⠀ Because it’s easy and also because I trick them into doing it so it’s one less thing I have to do. And then they feel important. And I feel like I win motherhood. ⠀⠀ If you’re mom-ing without oils you’re making it too hard for yourself 🤷🏻‍♀️ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #love #deals #motherhoodintheraw #picoftheday #charminghome #thatsdarling #pray #beauty #essentialoils #bestofhome #photooftheday #beinspired #photographylover #transformation #femaleentrepreneur #manifestationbabe #higherself #socialmediatips #mom #motherhood #momlife #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #winning #momwin #strongwomen #younglivingessentialoils #yleo #yl

I wish I could look this cute in a velour tracksuit.
Last night was rough. My stomach was so uncomfortably tight and my legs and thighs were killing me. Third trimester discomfort is no joke. I could literally feel my ligaments painfully stretching. As much as I’m dreading “labor and delivery day” , I’m also looking forward to getting this all over with! I’ve been consoling myself with cute baby items and dreaming about holding my sweet baby boy. I took advantage of @petalspeas 70% off sale and got baby Ian some cute little outfits during their amazing sale! I love that the onesies have the built in mittens and matching bonnets. I also snagged this incredibly soft and fluffy blanket during the sale❤️I can’t wait to wrap my baby in its softness and inhale his new baby scent. Holding him for the first time will make all the pain and sleepless nights worth it❤️ I’m almost there! * * * * #motherhoodrising #motherhood #momlife #babies #motherhoodissanctifying #thejoyfulmom #mommotivation #childhood #bossmoms #momeprenur #shereadstruth #homeprojects #neutraldecor #cozyhome #prepregnancy #postpregnancy #momsofig #honestmom #momblogger #instamom #unitedinmotherhood #girlmom #mymamahood #momentsinmotherhood #35weekspregnant #thirdtrimesterproblems #petalspeas #momlife

Taking 3 kids out by myself is not always easy, and it doesn't happen super often. Today we decided to go to the trampoline park with our neighbor friends, and it went amazing. All 3 kids were really good, and the kids even listened when I said it was time to leave and put their shoes on. I was actually a little surprised😅 An older woman sitting on a bench next to the shoe area saw me with the kids and said I just wanted to tell you how good you're doing with your kids, they are listening so well. While no, my kids are not always this good, it did make me feel really dang good. If you ever feel called to tell a stranger something they are doing well, DO IT🙌🏻 You never know how much of an awesome impact it may have on their day💙 #spreadpositivity
Levi is nine whole months!!✨ Almost a year of being your mama, sweet boy. 💛 You make life so much more fun!
“Heal The Earth” by Julian Lennon makes healing an adventure! The message is simple, but has a very important message—care for the earth and care for each other. The way you “fly” through the story is so imaginative and engaging. The illustrations are beautifully detailed too. It’s a wonderful book filled with love, kindness and compassion. A lovely addition to any child’s book collection! ✨ Swipe to keep seeing more cuteness! 😊📚 #asherreads #raisingareader
Nothin’ better than watching snow come down while eating cookies.🌨
You know you’re a mom when going to Airport without your kids feels like vacation. 🥳🥳 #miamibound
Nothing like {finally} having daddy home for the weekend - and it’s a long one too! 🙌🏼 swipe ➡️ to see his excitement 😃 . I’ll just be over here breathing a sigh of relief. There’s no feeling like having your other half under the same roof and a helping hand. 🤲🏼 . Happy weekend, friends!
Someone come hold this clinger so I can finish packing for our trip... Anyone else’s baby scream and cry at the top of their lungs when they aren’t being held? 😅😅😅
