Snug as a bug in a rug.
We experienced a couple firsts this week, but this one was my absolute favorite. Benjamin has been in a smaller bed forever, mainly because we coslept until the end of time and he still manages to find his way to our bed every night. #workinprogress
Well this week, he got an upgrade, Mario sheets and all. Needless to say, he can't wait for bedtime tonight. 🛌🛌
What is something great that happened this week?
I could really use one of those, face to the setting ocean sun, eyes closed, deepest breath I've taken all day kind of moments right about now. So magical, so healing.
My assistant has been hired!❤️
• Follow the call of the disco ball. 💫 •
I have my mood tracker all set up for February! I decided on cupcakes since it’s my birthday month. Can you tell which day is my birthday? 😉🧁
What I wish I was doing: ⬆️
What I’m actually doing: struggling through homework for 3 classes because I waited until my last couple semesters to take the classes I don’t like 😭 #ResearchMethodsandAnalysisWillFinishMe
This time last week, I was spinning my way through Disneyland. Today, the only thing spinning is the inside of my head 😷🥴 Thank goodness for photo evidence of better days!
Side note, I finally watched the movie Eighth Grade and it took me back to a place and feelings I hadn’t experienced since that very uncomfortable time in my life. Makes me so grateful to have made it through that season! Was middle school just terrifying and so awkward for all of us??
Just the greenery from the Signature Bundle. Foliage is my favorite part of any bouquet, even the ones made of paper, and any green is a welcome sight this time of year in northern Colorado. We’re living in a brown, brown, brown, brown world. I hope your part of the universe is faring better!
🙋🏼♀️Who’s SUPER stoked that it’s Friday? I know I am!! I have been looking forward to this weekend for one BIG reason! .
Sunday morning I will be flying out to Edmonton to get my certification for lash lifts! I am so excited to be able to expand my service list to be able to up the lash game of those who maybe aren’t ready for lash extensions but want a little boost! .
As of Wednesday, call or text 778-689-2557 to book an appointment for lash lifts!
A close-up shot of Frank’s new tag🤗 Thank you @mrfrankdog
for the photo!!🐶
Still unpacking all our things after a very long vacay but would much rather be at the beach right now 🦜
I don’t do resolutions.
Instead I take the month of January to reflect, reset, prioritize, and look ahead.
Planning out the year both professionally and personally is one of the most rewarding things I do! Travel, house projects, time with friends and family, business goals, etc. That’s where my mind has been the last few weeks.
So this is long overdue but cheers to the new year! And to the long weekend 🥂 ❤️
Styled this fitted black turtleneck ✋🏻FIVE✋🏻 ways on the blog today! I’ve had this one for years and it gets so much wear! Head to the blog via the link in my profile to see how versatile it can be! I have to say though, pairing it with my fave @gibsonlook
joggers just might be my fave! http://liketk.it/2zpF6 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKcurves #LTKstyletip
Another one of my fashion finds this trip was this denim jacket with a piece of this grandma couch glued to it😂 bc whooooo doesn’t need another one of those!?! More importantly- I AM HEADED BACK NORTH & CAN’T BE HAPPIER😭 yes it’s going to snow in NJ, yes it’s 1 degree, but like, my bed😩😩😩😩❤️❤️
Valentine’s set up for the kiddos ❤️... a little early but Isla is still singing Christmas songs all day everyday so we are just going with what makes us happy! 😂
sometimes struggle is seemingly unending and overshadows every aspect of life. light illuminates only our next step and the road beyond that is unseen. a friend sat with me months ago and spoke the most simple, but pointed truth..."right now is not forever." when you are in crisis, it can feel like forever. day after day feels overwhelming but, today is today and His word says His mercies are new every morning. His word...its the only foundation that has never slipped out from underneath me. so if you're in the thick of it, i want to encourage you to pause whatever thought and emotion train you are cycling through, and ask Jesus to help. prayer is more simple than we make it...its a heart position not a dissertation. its not a speech we are trying to get an A on, its a surrendered disposition in "Jesus, help I cannot do this," "Jesus, wow you are______," "Jesus, thank you for ______." the Bible says He is the beginning and the end, so before the proverbial shit hit the fan, He was there. and after it clears, He'll still be there. we can build our lives on Him and not be overtaken when things flat suck. because that storm will not last forever, but He will, as will His mercies. heart surrendered. praying His comfort and strength over ya'll. He's got you...
Partying hard tonight with a glass of wine, a new cozy mystery, and already in my pajamas....😂
What does your Friday night look like? Any fellow hibernators out there?
So excited for the return of our winter seasonal, Ceylon Cinnamon! This caramel warms the taste buds with a generous portion of Ceylon and Cassia cinnamon, a dash of cayenne pepper and a bit of orange zest to round it all out.

THANK YOU for such a awesome release last night!! Be sure to check the site if you missed the drop 🥳
The Summer Day
Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life? —Mary Oliver
I’m giving away digital downloads of this print in memory of Mary Oliver who shared her soul with us so courageously and gave us the words we needed to grow and flourish.
Through my Etsy, I’m asking only for a $2 donation per PDF download. Any donations received for this piece will go to Peaceful Paths, a local domestic violence center. You may also DM me, and I’ll send you the file.
Feel free to share. 🌱
How can you not love Uncle David? ♥️
