💚Blessed to have a job that allows me choices. 💚
I was able to move from Ames to Johnston without taking personal days.🏡
I’ve gotten more time with Roe, Thomas, and now extended family including watching Roe with his grandparents and great grandparents.👶🏼👱🏼♂️👩🏼👱🏼♂️👴🏼👵🏼
Thomas and I are a little sick and worn down and I don’t have to take sick days or worry about a sub. 🤧🤒
While setting up our new home, I’m able to work in between when time allows. 🏘
. 💁🏼♀️Plus my boss is pretty fly. (It’s me, yo. I’m my own boss.)🙋🏼♀️
💵💎💰The income, perks, travel are all bonuses. Time was and is “money” to our family and I thank God everyday that I decided to check out something different! 💵💎💰

Ok my last 20min were super rad. I started to try drive to get a tea after an appt but felt awful so I pulled over just to put my seat back and relax for a min. While I was doing that I sent A friend a text with an I'm dying #selfie
to which she replied “no offence but you look like shit.” To which I replied your house is closer I think I'm going to come sleep there not sure I can make it home. Then I was like I need some comfort soup. Then I decided I'm to fucking sick to get soup I'm just gonna go home I can make it. I started the car to go home and I looked up and there was a takeout restaurant across the street that had soup. Clearly this was a sign. I go to get some and a train was going by. I haven't seen a train on the island forever. The little restaurant was awesome and the owner was super cool and I am now sitting by the ocean eating some kick ass soup that taste like lasagna. Still feel aweful but now smiling #😋 #sickday #momentsofmine #perspective #itsthesimplethings #life #love #foodporn #soup #localbusiness #trains #friendship #thursdayvibes #healingvibes #smiling
to almost exactly 11 years ago when I met this pretty lady! It was such a pleasure to hear Candace Cameron Bure speak on how to be a Godly Wife while on the K-Love Music Boat Cruise. 🌿 Since it was so long ago, I don’t remember everything she said but there are several points I remember her talking about that have stuck with me. One in particular that made us all laugh : to show how much times have changed, she read an excerpt from a 1950s home economics book about preparing yourself, the kids, the house and dinner before your husband gets home from work. 😂 While things are different now, I’m sure there’s still some helpful info in there for a more #simplelife
I’ve managed to almost make a copycat of a starbucks iced chai! ✨☕️ Paired perfectly with my BS candle 🕯
I made mine to last a week since I’ve been on the go as of late.. but feel free to steal and make it your own. 16 c water, bring to rolling boil for about 4 mins. Take off of heat and add 7 bags of black tea & 13 of chai spice - it seems like a lot, I know, but that’s because it did make a gallon. I let steep for about 20 mins, and then poured into a pitcher. Add 16 oz bottle of CoffeeMate Coconut milk creamer in the flavor Sweet Cremé and about 3 oz of half and half (for thickness, you can forego this step). Add sugar by the tablespoon if you want it sweeter ✨☕️
I got weed nuggets in the shape of a heart the other day... shit made me feel especially special.
Perfuming for your health!
Every Thursday & Friday morning on our way to nursery we race sticks in the brook, I really enjoy this moment with my bubba, such a simple thing makes us both so happy 😊 Today it felt even more lovely after a stressful start to the week with bubba having a brief visit to hospital following a nasty virus, a dose of steroids & oxygen & he is now recovered (by the way since when was there an emoji for virus 🦠?!) #itsthesimplethings #bubba #stickracing #motherandsontime
Creating, Brainstorming, Planning + Dreaming new ideas for this year! ✨ Website coming this Spring with a lot of other fun things we have planned! ➕
Just Grateful! 🙏🏻
From the girl who never worked out a day in my life to pushing myself to become a better version of me. .
From the mom who could barely get out of bed or carry my boys from the excruciating back pains. In & out of physical therapy and the constant struggle to become better not just for me but for them. .
I literally cried this morning, that ugly cry, that reminds you how far you’ve come. I know when you are in those moments, it feels like forever. I can’t tell you how incredible it is that my body has allowed me to train for this half marathon (not a walk in the park training). I’m simply thankful for this amazing body that I’ve been given. .
If there is anything I could leave you with is, don’t skip the struggle. Embrace it. Lean in. That’s where you become who you are meant to be. .

Y’all, 4.5 days of high fever is 4.5 too many days for me. Joel presented me with this card yesterday after his first day back to school and I almost cried on the spot.
I would do anything for these kids of mine. While Joel was sick I found myself saying prayers of such thankfulness for our overall health. Before this week, it’s been years since Joel was sick.
Remember how I said I’d do anything for my kiddos? One thing I do that so simple is give them a daily multivitamin + probiotic. All 3 of them take the same tablet of awesome every morning.
What’s this awesome I speak of?
It’s got 13 essential vitamins & 4 BILLION probiotics.
It is bioavailable for maximum absorbency & contains methylated folate (any mamas of littles out there with the MTHFR gene?).
It’s free of GMOs, no added sugar (just skin 1 gummy vitamin a day can add 4-5 LBS of sugar to a kids diet in a year), common allergens or preservatives.
No artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners & is 100% vegan.
I know y’all would do anything for your kiddos too. If you want to add an awesome vitamin + probiotic to combat cold + flu season, let me know. I’ve got the best one! 💛
What's your favourite method of relaxation? After a very long day, I made it to pool! 😍 With blue being one of my favourite colours, being surrounded by boats, and the pool being a mere 27 degrees... I think this will do me nicely!! #itsthesimplethings #sailorgirl
