QUIET weekend for our house - we are all sick with a horrible cold. Ava is so unwell so we haven’t had a lot of sleep this weekend; but today was for celebrating my beautiful niece Grace who turned 1 yesterday 🌻

“... One by one he subdued his father's trees By riding them down over and over again Until he took the stiffness out of them, And not one but hung limp, not one was left For him to conquer. He learned all there was To learn about not launching out too soon And so not carrying the tree away Clear to the ground. He always kept his poise To the top branches, climbing carefully With the same pains you use to fill a cup Up to the brim, and even above the brim. Then he flung outward, feet first, with a swish, Kicking his way down through the air to the ground. So was I once myself a swinger of birches.” - Robert Frost My favorite poem, and my favorite boys. Seems fitting tonight.

Anniversary celebrating with the best seats in the house. ❤️❤️❤️ . . . 🎶 I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay... Watchin' the tide, roll away. 🎶 Do you know this song? It always makes me think of summers spent boating because it was always playing in the cassette deck. #dandymusic . . . Tonight my guy and I dined at one of our favorites to celebrate our anniversary. He went scout camping on our actual anniversary because 17 years. 🤣 After so many years that’s what anniversaries look like and it’s okay. We are parents, too. There’s always time to fit in celebrating later. Always. ❤️

Ever since I became a mama, in a split second I can have some scary “what if” scenario flash through my mind and fear can instantly grip my heart because these babies of mine are everything to me. My biggest goal in life was always to be a mama. But the longer I’m a mama and the longer I’m in relationship with Jesus, just as quickly as the fears creep in, before I can take my next breath I instantly start praying and calling on the name of Jesus. And since moving to Hawaii and living at the foot of the ocean and being surrounded by things that aren’t always in my control, my prayers are much more constant. It’s the very breath I breathe some days. And His peace always covers my mama-heart so big. He loves my babies more that I can even comprehend. Motherhood teaches me over and over how to trust in Jesus with every piece of my heart because my babies are my heart now (and their daddy too). What a gift this all is ❤️ To love bigger than I ever knew I could and to trust Jesus more than I ever thought I could.

HOME WORKOUT I did this last week and almost forgot about it! It was a great little workout if you 30 mins! The best part is that you only need 1-2 sets of dumbbells of heavy objects! 🙌🏻 This is also pregnancy and newly postpartum safe! Yay! 30 mins of as many rounds/reps as possible: 20 clean and press (10 each side) 20 side plank extension (10 each side) 20 double pulse squats 20 hip thrusts with overhead ext 20 side plank leg lifts (10 each side) You go through all the movements and once you are done the leg lifts, you go back to the beginning until 30 mins is up! Quick and easy. Plus you get a good sweat in! 🙌🏻💪🏻 Choose a weight that you don’t have to stop and take breaks during the movements (you can break when switching movements, if you need). Try it and let me know how it goes!

Took our baby girl on her first road/camping trip through the beautiful BC interior today to see my family in AB for a whole. entire. week. She absolutely aced her first day long car ride and as we expected took right to the outdoors. And oh nothing all that profound to say except that I’m just really, really grateful for it all.

I posted on a Saturday! Haha that never happens! And even though it’s 11:20 at night and not a “prime time” for posting, I just wanted to say how grateful Brent and I are to be doing this business everyday, and how grateful we are for all of YOU. We never dreamed we’d be able to do this full time, and you’ve inspired us to keep dreaming even bigger. ✨ (Pictured here: our Bone Mudcloth highchair cushion 📷: @kenzie.salomon)

I’ve been soaking up all the cuddles this week, between the chaos of getting organised for baby number two I’ve wanted to remind baby number one how important he is too. He’s really not a cuddler either, and I’m not sure the cuddles are even aimed at me, I’m almost getting the feeling like he’s just in it for his little brother or sister but I’ll take it! I also think this is Fredericks way of looking out for me and making sure I slow down for a little while each day 🥰 Did anyone find towards the end of their pregnancies their little loves became a lot more attached to you? Freddie’s always been very independent and if he was at all clingy he would share the load between myself and his dad pretty evenly but now it’s just me, always touching me, has to sit on the same chair as me or if I’m on the floor with him he has to be right in my lap 🤷🏻‍♀️ I must be radiating some serious hormones or something because he’s never been like this

School starts on Monday. Both Job and Mariah will be in public school for the first time (fully) in 6 years(with the exception of a half of year in 4th & 5th grade). I’m dreading them leaving.😭I can’t tell you how many times I’ve picked up the phone to call and un-enroll them lol. As a parent we really sometimes have no clue. I’ve prayed and “followed my gut” the entire time I’ve been a mama. Unfortunately God doesn’t audibly tell me what to do with my kids a lot of the time lol, I wish He did...it would make my life a lot easier and I wouldn’t mess up so much 🤣, but He does lead us beside the still waters, and He restores our soul, so that’s what I’m leaning on this year. I trust in His signs and wonders even when I can’t audibly hear Him. I’m going to ask the Lord to lead us beside the still waters and to restore our souls all 👏🏼 year 👏🏼 long 👏🏼 and I believe He will. I’m praying peace, protection, and guidance over my babes and I ask God to send them the friends who will lift their souls and spirits throughout the year. I also find refuge in the fact that we can ALWAYS homeschool again if things don’t work out, but we will go into this without fear but with diligence and faith in the Lord. Thank you God for giving me Job, Mariah, and Clara. They are my entire universe, and You know how much I absolutely adore them.💙 . . . #7thgrade #8thgrade #motherlove #mothership #motherslove #littlepiecesofchildhood #mommyhood #ig_motherhood #lifeasmama #motherhoodthroughig #inspiremotherhood #mytinymoments #inspiremothers #acupofmotherhood #honestlymothering #motherhoodrising #ohheymama #instagood #mommyandme #motherhoodunplugged #childhoodunplugged #mymotherhood #realisbetterthanperfect #candidchildhood #ig_motherhood #joyfulmamas #instagood #honestlymothering #motherhoodintheraw #mytinytribe #nestingly #mytinytribe #morethanmama #beex3

🌿I wanted to take a break from our regularly scheduled programming to share something that may be mundane to some but for me marks a very special moment. . 💇 I got my hair done. . 🕰 Today marks a moment where life has become “normal,” enough for me to sit in a salon for a few hours and let someone play with my hair. It’s so wild and weird to me that this was so monumental but up until seven months ago I was reeling; A PTSD mama anytime I heard my children cry at night or hear George scream would rip off her bed sheets and wonder, “ Is it back?” Mold? I would feel George’s head to see if he was running a temp and pray to Jesus that it wasn’t another uti that would put us in the hospital and put his life at risk. . ❤️Every time I pick up George I hold him in a way that only a mama who knows how close she was to losing her baby does. I nearly cry every time. . 🙏And I know, there are mamas and papas and Mimi’s and Pops and so many other people who are walking some freakishly hard, painful, heartbreaking, agonizing roads with their babies and loved ones. And I remember them often. And being a bit on the other side of that season I still feel in a daze... like life is somehow happening but it’s happening without me... and I think that makes a lot of sense. Because I think I have left parts of me behind...parts of my soul that were poured out in the tear soaked pillowcases and on my husbands shoulders. Parts of me that have died and been resurrected into something that much more beautiful. . ✂️ I guess that’s why I’m writing about a haircut... because as I looked down at all that hair sitting on the floor of the salon, I realized that hair was from a time in my life that I’ll never forget but that I’m ready to move forward from. A time that has changed me forever. . 💔For those of my my dear friends who are there now. Tear-stained pillow cases and fear, I am praying for you. I will fight for you. You are not alone. You are stronger than you know and the Lord is near and loves you. . 🌈Today felt like I was letting go of a season and I was sad about that but I was also ready. . 🌿I’m ready.

Some days are really hard. I want to be the perfect mama who’s always happy, but it doesn’t always happen that way. On days like today, stress and anxiety take over, and it’s really hard to be the best version of me. But, this kid reminds me of all I have to be grateful for. He gives me that smile and everything seems okay. He loves me even on my bad days. For all the other moms out there not having a perfect weekend, know you aren’t alone! Thank God for sweet baby boys to remind us that we can get through anything (and we will, for them).

thrift | this has been a rollercoaster week for a variety of reasons I won’t go into, but there are a couple things in my life bringing levity + joy. This little venture Collective Goods is one of them. I haven’t shared much here on this page about it, but I’ve started an instashop with one of my favorite humans, Hannah. Our mission has been to bring quality, classic + fun thrift pieces together to show that you can shop secondhand while looking stylish + timeless. I’ve got a blog post in the works about why thrifting is important to the environment (it’s the flip side of decluttering + minimalism) + we also got a website in the works. but for now, we will be hosting a IRL pop-up shop of our curated thrift for the greater good at the 1st annual pride festival in Viroqua this Saturday. we been foraging items for all genders, ages and sizes 00-20! If you’re a local, join us tomorrow. If you aren’t, check out our page @collective.goods hoping you all have a restful entrance into Virgo season. #thrifted #thriftedstyle #capsulewardrobe #consciousfashion #sustainablefashion #thriftedfashion #livinglifethrifted #secondhandclothes #secondhand #theartofslowliving #slowfashion #summerstyle #clothingshop #ecofriendly #boutiquefashion #consciousliving #collectivegoods #ohheymama #zerowaste #zerowastecollective #Myeverydaymagic #wastefreeplanet #liveinspired #seekinspirecreate #wherewomancreate #shopsmall #fridaymood
