Never be afraid to be you 🤓
Just hanging around Miami
I'm going to keep this short before I get proper emotional. But happy 18th birthday to my little Joshy squashy! I remember the first time I met and held you in the hospital. The fact that 18 years have passed is mental!! I am super happy that you've grown up to become as weird and wonderful as we are(@itsyazminmccoy
and can be complete creeps! Not only are you hilarious you are so smart, caring and super down to earth! I am looking forward to see you become a man, but you'll still be my Joshy squashy 😉😊❤️ I hope you've had a wonderfully magical day and I hope you're already slaughtered. Love you always and forever you dweeb! @joshmccoy00 #birthday #brother #18 #bumchin #love #babybro #nevergrowup #10122000
I love Rudolph, but Clarice, she takes the cake! Like the other females (does) she is lighter in color than our little red nosed friend and she's wearing a polka dotted bow. Maybe a nod to Minnie Mouse, maybe not. These characters have a always been a part of our holiday.
In the 80s, my Aunt and Uncle had those Hallmark stuffed reindeer. Although they were named Rhonda and Rodney (what were you thinking Hallmark!!!???), I still think of them as my pals from Rudolph. Once upon a time, a little Bre, cried for those sold out Build-a-Bear Reindeer that went for like $500 on ebay. The love for these deer and this movie runs deep!!! So when I saw this sweater, I could no resist. Large has sold out!
Sizes: Small and medium only
Rudolph's Girlfriend -Clarice Sweater $20

I hate pictures of myself sleeping 😴🤣 but grateful my husband captured this sweet moment. ❤️❤️The first morning in our new house. I love this little snuggle bunny and will miss it when she no longer sleeps best half way on top of me 😆 #annakat

In one of my favorite movies, Under a Tuscan Sun, Catherine quotes Federico Fellini, "You have to live spherically - in many directions. Never lose your childish innocence, it's the most important thing - and things will come your way." It's been 15 years since hearing that and it's stayed with me ever since. It's only been this year though that I've really felt the truth in it. There've been so many ups and downs and so many challenges this year that I truly believe if I hadn't embraced my inner Peter Pan, I'd be in a miserable state. Sometimes you have to grow down rather than up. Children believe in magic. Anything is possible and whatever masterpiece they're working on, their full heart is in it. They’re fearless. In most circumstances, they don't carry what can feel like the weight of the world on their shoulders the way we do. They certainly don't inflict what we inflict on ourselves at times. They just don't know any better. I've not shunned adulthood but I am trying to enjoy the balance in my life and at times hit the pause button, seek out the magic and joy. Childish innocence doesn't worry about colouring within the lines and neither does my inner Peter Pan and that has been a very liberating feeling. FYI I dressed up as Peter Pan for Halloween 3 years ago.🙈
This is real life. This is my every day. It’s so easy to only post pictures where things are clean, my kids hair is nearly fixed, and life appears to be perfect. But that’s not how motherhood truly is. That’s not what my life actually looks like.
My life is messy. Toys are all over the place. Beds aren’t made every day. Today in particular, I’m washing bedding. She doesn’t like her hair fixed, so no matter how much I brush and fix it, it’ll be taken down and end up messy.
But this is where my happiness lies. In these little moments watching her play mermaids in the superhero castle. Watching her imagination run free and seeing her personality blossom. This is what it’s all about.
And a few more...now back to work! 😬
All about a mid autumn day🍁 my friend and I playing around and matching our outfits to autumn colors🧸🍂 we’re doing it right, aren’t we?😉✨
