  • My mom and I were having a conversation the other day about dealing with the hardships in life. 
It’s easy to get stuck in the grief or the loss or the sadness, and to use it as a way of not moving forward. 
I’ve been there. 
Thankfully, I’ve learned to cling to what’s good, even if the positives seem to be tiny. 
There will be more bad things to overcome, but pushing forward for the good will help ease the pain of the bad. 
Social media is only a small glimpse of what you get in people’s lives. You never know what someone may be trying to overcome behind all of the smoke and mirrors ❤️

  • (AD) These girls had so much fun with their @kiwico_inc box! This is a monthly subscription box that you pick, based on the age of your child(ren). It is geared towards promoting different levels of development, which I love! 
This month was farm themed, and it had the cutest crafts in it! You can check out my stories for all of the craft fun and to see what they made😍
Use the link in my bio to try a month of KiwiCo for free– just pay $4.95 in shipping in the US and $9.95 outside of the US.

  • This cutie... my little spitfire, and my favorite ball of sass😍
Being her mama is an adventure to say the least😏
Tops like this one have been my favorite thing to wear lately. So easy to throw on and perfect for mamas!

  • It’s Friday! Finally... this week has been something else 🤪
Let’s do a little get-to-know me since we have quite a few newbs around here! 
1) In the past 5 years, my hair has been about 5 different colors. 
2) I love a good cocktail, and I love trying out different hand crafted drinks (like this from @westinkierland). 3) I share about my new-found love for #essentialoil on my stories, because they are amazing! 
4) I don’t truly have a favorite color, although I’m a big fan of black, white, and grays. 
Your turn! Tell me something fun about you. Cheers to the weekend 🥂
  • Our first sports physical was a success! (AD) The Little Clinic makes it quick and easy to take your kiddos in for back-to-school check ups and sports physicals. 
Right now, they are offering physicals for as little as $24 with their $5 off promotion! The staff here is always amazing, and they make kids feel comfortable and involved in their own care. Plus, you can make appointments online or walk in to their locations in @FrysFoodStores @KrogerCo. I highly recommend them! •
