💚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! 💵💎💰

I love collecting sea glass. I have a clear glass jar half full of it sitting next to the sink at home so I can enjoy it’s beauty while I do the mundane task of washing dishes. The colors remind me of the hues found in nature. And while it’s not naturally occurring along the coast, I collected it there, while my feet walked the warm wet sand, while I listened to the waves roar and crash, while the balmy salt air wildly frizzled my hair and filled my lungs. What do you enjoy collecting in nature? . . . . . . . #saltwatertherapy #WalkTheBeach #seaglass #BeachWalk #BeachCamping #BeachLife #SandBetweenMyToes #CaliforniaBeach #SimpleLife #Simplicity #socal #livethelittlethings #beachglass #simplystyleyourspace #livesimple #everydayibt #ThingsIWantToRemember #FlashesOfDelight #TheSimpleThingsInLife #ItsTheSimpleThings #livelifefully #thisjoyfulmoment #happyplace #inspiredbynature #natureinspired #beachfinds
Liking my new Blessed Bracelet as it was a great reminder of how lucky & blessed I am... #blessed #itsthesimplethings #keepcollective #lovinlife
Forward folds in yoga are hard. Parenting middle schoolers is hard. Changing your eating habits is hard. When things are hard, it’s nice to have someone in your corner supporting and pushing you with love. As a yoga teacher, nutritionist, parent, spouse, friend, and human, sometimes I fail. But I always want to be better to help guide and support. I was thrilled to be back to seeing patients this week in the office. How do you show up to help people in your life? #findyour8020 #coach #supportsystem #lifeline #wellness #nutritiongoals #support #onedayatatime #teamwork #thankful #itsthesimplethings #accountability #forwardfold #hipipener #primaryfoods

Just a girl and her puppy taking an afternoon break. Truth is, I didn't realize how much I needed this until Britt hopped into my lap. #puppylove #simplelife #intentionalliving #itsthesimplethings
It’s been a super hectic week! I’ve learnt loads and really got my geek on 🤓 Looking forward to a chilled weekend, but tonight I’m rocking out with a peppermint tea in the mug we won playing on 2p machines Tuesday night 😝☕️🤘🏻I hope you’ve all had a great week ☺️ _________________________________________________ #learning #experience #placement #pepperminttea #rocknroll #geek #getyourgeekon #neverstoplearning #studentnurse #student #mystudentnursejourney #newcup #humour #gandt #ginandtonic #winnerwinnerchickendinner #2pmachines #arcades #oldschool #datenight #itsthesimplethings #joy #findjoyeveryday #hooray #tired #tirednurse

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 #💙
Ain’t no amount of filters going to make this look pretty! Couldn’t be bothered cooking & wasn’t overly hungry so settled for some good old boiled eggs & soldiers! #boiledeggs #toastsoldiers #healthyandfilling #itsthesimplethings
Had the best lunch date today!❤️ #itsthesimplethings #lovemyboy #makingmemories
#throwbackthursday 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 ! 🤷🏻‍♀️
Little person at story time (obviously not listening to the story at all). It’s really hard to shower, dress myself, and look decent by any one of the morning hours AND do breakfast and dress Judah to get anywhere. AND, I have to. I have to be around other moms and Judah needs other kids. Gotta make it happen! . . . .  #childhoodunplugged #everydaysimplelife #mississippimomma #cameramama #boymom  #candidchildhood #itsthesimplethings #thehappynow #nothingisordinary #photooftheday #motherhoodsimplified #documentyourdays #lifegivingsquares #brandrepkids #brandrepbaby #msphotographer #msphotography #momblogger
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. #itsthesimplethings
It's farmers' market day, so we made a quick lunchtime pit-stop for the ultimate chocolate pick-me-up - dark praline hot chocolate and a caramel brownie from @oconaillchocolate. 😍 Absolute bliss! #beatingthejanuaryblues #itsthesimplethings #goodforthesoul #sugarrush #chocoholic #darkpralinehotchocolate #caramelbrownie #oconaillschocolate #oconaills #oconaillscork #mahonpointfarmersmarket #supportirish #supportlocal #shopsmall #wintertimeinireland #januarydays

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

Sometimes the best things in life are simple. Like opening a new jar of Natural PB and being the 1st one to dig in. #chictribe #consistency #goaldigger #fitmom #purehappiness #itsthesimplethings #2bmindset #2b_besties
Beautiful but cold day in the garden this afternoon. Tidying up pots and sorting through what we are taking to our new house just in case the snow comes and stops play. I've always been a garden girl and I will really miss this space... we've had some amazing times in this back yard 💕 #gardenlife #garden #realgardens #blueskies #freshair #memories #wintergarden #wintergardening #atmine #pocketofmyhome #memoriesthatlastalifetime #tidyingup #itsthesimplethings #iloveflowers #momentslikethese #reflection #thinking #plantpots #ourbackyard #wintersday #beforethesnow
Friendly mid-week reminder 👩🏼‍💻 I believe that one of the most important lessons in life is that we need to start listening to one another. There‘s always something to learn, especially from someone who does not necessarily agree with you. Be open, communicate, form your own opinion but do not shut other ones out 🌻 Have a great day friends! . . . #womenwholead #womenwhowork #womeninbusiness #workinggirl #money #wealth #finance #financialplanner #financialplanning #womenempoweringwomen #communityovercompetition #inspiredwomen #workfromanywhere #motivation #productivity #adviceblog #itsthesimplethings #hersuccess #thehappynow #femalefinance #girlsjustwannahavefunds #girlswhoinvest #girlpower #femalefuture #finanzheldinnen #feminvest #womenwhoinvest #lebensziele #grlpwr #femalefounders

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. . . . . . . . #thankfulthursday #itsthesimplethings #momsandmamas #momsofsons #wordstoliveby #empoweringwomen #fitover30 #yogi #yogimom #yogaislifechanging #yogaislife #yoginilife #momstruggles #momswhorun #runnershigh #coffeeovercardio

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! 💛

F-i-n-a-l-l-y! 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
