I caught myself a lovely little respiratory virus off my kiddos so I’m just lying here today slapping some raven on my throat and diffusing it next to my bed. I’m so glad I have these oils to support me. They really do seem to bring me through the worst of days. Raven is a combination of Ravintsara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata and I really is so soothing for a sore throat and chest.

I always loved bath time as a kid and I vividly remember doing just this. Laying back enough so your ears were under the water and things sounded funny. It was my happy place. This brought me back, and now watching him is my new happy place. #bathtime #kidsbeingkids #stopgrowingup
Confession time. When I was in high school, I would get my hair and nails done on a monthly basis. I also spent way too much money and time in tanning beds. I would shop at all the name brand stores because I wanted to fit in. I can still smell the perfume from those stores all the way over here in the Middle East haha. I remember analyzing every flaw I could find about myself. My forehead is too big, my thighs touch, and my hair is so thin. I was willing to do almost anything to fit in. Now that I am 30, I wish I could hug the 16 year old Christie and tell her that she doesn’t need to do anything in order to be loved and accepted. We live in a world that focuses so much on looks and things, but the truth is that none of that brings happiness. I now wear pretty much the same clothes from Target everyday. I don’t have fancy shoes or purses. I get my hair cut like once a year. I definitely don’t go to tanning beds (bye germs + cancer). I have embraced who God made me to be and I feel so free. I have the world’s best husband and he loves that I don’t wear make up 98% of the time. He loves that I can fit my entire closet in 2 suitcases. He knows that he doesn’t need to buy me fancy things in order for me to be fulfilled. I want to encourage you to find freedom in who you are! I can promise you that people are not going to love you more because of the things you buy. You will be loved by the right people for being exactly who you are. I love seeing women shine exactly as they are. Girl, strut that messy bun and grown out roots. Wear those 5 year old sneakers. Who cares that your your last 5 pictures are in the same sweatshirt. YOU ARE SO INCREDIBLY LOVED just as you are. You are on the brink of walking in so much freedom and I am so excited for the joy this will bring to your life. Love you girls to the moon and back.

Having fun in L.A. here!! It’s a fact that thrift stores here are 100% better than in Houston. 🙌🏼
We’re officially back! Back where the sunsets are arguably the best... but don’t include silhouettes of mountain peaks or fall foliage. So happy to be sleeping in my own bed tonight! #backtoreality
Este 18 ha sido distinto a todos los otros.
Ha sido un merecido descanso para mirar en perspectiva. Han terminado relaciones que nunca esperé que terminarían y han comenzado otras nuevas con personas muy valiosas.
Para los que no me conocen mucho, soy reservado y me gusta serlo. Pienso mucho en silencio y cuestiono todo. Tengo penas y dolores igual que todo el mundo. Toda la gente que siguen no es tan distinta a ustedes ni está siempre feliz como muestran en las redes sociales.
Quiero cambios y se que todo cambio debe partir por uno mismo. Una de las mejores cosas que puedes hacer por mejorar al mundo, es mejorarte a ti mismo.
Se lo mejor, haz lo mejor, demanda lo mejor, espera lo mejor, recibe lo mejor y da lo mejor al mundo para que ellos reciban lo mejor de ti.
No puedo estar mas contento con todo lo que significa el desafío de mejorarte permanentemente, con sus altos y bajos, porque si fuera fácil no tendría gracia. Amense a ustedes mismos y serán invencibles.
Les deseo lo mejor a cada uno de ustedes de todo corazón, a los que me conocen y a los que no. 🖤
wouldn’t have found this quirky small town car show if it weren’t for our sodalicious detour 🤠
We’ve had a virus run through our house and I’m the lucky last to get it 😷. So this is probably the max amount of energy I can put into school today. I played one round with them and won and they very quickly told me to go back to bed. Sore loosers😂. Game schooling is a thing right? #goingbacktobed
I want to talk about using bots on Instagram 😴
I'm genuinely curious why people do it? Is it a lack of time or resources? Why go for a bot then instead of a Social Media Manager? (Hello! 💁🏼♀️😅) I guess I'm all about genuine engagement. I'd rather get no comments than a dozen bot comments that consist of 3 random emojis. But am I being naïve? Is this the key to fast social media growth?
I say firmly no - it's so obvious when it's being done and I think it does more reputational damage than good. But I'd love to hear your thoughts?
Is it legit?? 🤔
Be a badass dreamer 😍 the kind that puts action into their ideas 💡

That moment when a cute boy catches your eye 😉⠀
Disclaimer: the first time Jack and I met, it was not as glamorous as this coffee shop scenario. In reality, I asked my neighbor to borrow a pair of scissors. Flash forward to today... and now that neighbor is my husband 💕. ⠀
Life works in strange, mysterious ways. I’m just thankful it led me to my person, who I can be unapologetically weird with 🙏🏻.⠀
How did you and your significant other meet?
Packed away our beach towels and swimsuits. But I'm still in denial about packing away my summer dresses. I just can't bring my heart to do it. #bringbacksummer
If you hide from all the storms how will you grow?
I’m participating in #inktober
and I made a prompt list. If you’ve never done inktober, here’s the rules.
1️⃣ Use ink*
2️⃣ Make a drawing everyday from October 1 -31. This should Kickstart a good art habit!
3️⃣ Share your masterpieces! If you use my prompt list, please tag me and use #decotober
so I can see your great work!
* Digital art counts, you can use other colors + mediums if you like.
Kringloop vondsten van vandaag. Een korte winterbroek voor Jente, een iniemini leren tas voor pakjesavond. En een kleine shopper van prachtige geborduurde stof met een bijbehorend portomoneetje. ♡ #kringloopgeluk #happykringloop
after day 3 of physical therapy, I need lots of deep relief... wish I knew about this when I was in gymnastics!
We’ve just walked back home from swimming. It rained the whole way but who cares because I already wet. Feel like I haven’t seen a decent rainbow for years, felt like this one deserved a picture.
