Friday night and I have a date with flowers for tomorrow's wedding - a poorly sad toddler all day means it'll be a late one. Thank goodness for a husband who brings home three types of cake!

Happy Sunday! We're off for a soggy walk down the Tarka trail, and I will be keeping my eyes peeled for the first blackthorn blossoms that I used in this lovely spring bouquet last year. What are you doing with your weekend? 💚

And just like that I’m at Day 45/80, to say this is flying by is an understatement. The physical gains are awesome for sure, but the mental gains are what impress me the most. I haven’t missed one workout even on my crazy ass Saturday’s, I’ve stayed true to my timed nutrition to the point that I can’t really imagine eating any other way. I’ve created a healthy lifestyle that is totally doable for me and it makes me flipping happy!! .
When you concentrate on the things that make you feel joy and that will help you live this incredible life longer, then those little things stop bothering you, that negative voice becomes a whisper and you are free to just live and love life. .
Yup, this wellness journey has transformed way more on the inside than the outside!! So, when will it be your time to change??

Ever have a day that feels like it just slipped by? Nothing good, bad, funny, important happened...?
.
Yesterday I came home in a bad mood. The first day in a while. I immediately told my hubby that it was a 'bad day,' but I couldn't explain why.
.
Everything was fine, I guess... but it was just off. I went to bed frustrated. ☹️
.
I wish I could say this morning when I woke up I suddenly felt better. I didn't. I hit snooze once, and that is SUCH a dangerous thing that could send me down an even worse tunnel, so after 9 minutes I DECIDED to make today better.
.
I drug myself downstairs, DECIDED to have a great workout... and I did. ❤️
.
You can choose how you feel, people. Choose happy. 😍 .
Ready to crush it today! 💪

Happy Monday vibes everyone! I'm ready to tackle my to do list today 💪🏻I was so thrilled to see the launch of @bigsmallbusiness last night, it's such a brilliant idea and you just know it's going to be done in style with @laura_herostockbridge and @monicabeatrice at the helm. I made some progress with my own future plans at the weekend and it feels like anything is possible so let's all #BloomIn2017  🌱What are your plans for the months ahead? I'd love to know 💕

Do you ever have those days where you hear someone speak and it feels like they’re speaking right to you? Whether that’s a sermon at church, or personal development video? Well today that happened for me. My girl @madisonviningblog spoke in a group about farmtrucks vs BMWs and being grateful for things now, not later - and it hit home.
.
Her and her hubby lost their sweet three year old earlier this year and it’s been the most heartbreaking story to follow. She said, be grateful in your lowest times and it will come around ten fold and you will be ever so grateful when you’re back on the mountain top. Don’t wait until you’re there to be grateful for where you’ve been in order to get there.
.
Y’all, so powerful. We often forget to step back and realize we are where we need to be when we need to be there. There’s a reason we’re walking through and experiencing the things we are. Be grateful in everything. Practice gratitude always.🖤 (art belongs to @annatovar)

Today we are celebrating my littlest's fourth birthday, which happens on Tuesday. .
It's a bittersweet day. Today will mean she has had as many birthdays without her beloved Nana as she has had with her.
.
They say time heals all wounds but I'm not sure that's true. I think time just gives us an opportunity to build strength and courage in the face of immeasurable grief, which will never really go away.
.
There is a lot of bad in the world right now and sometimes, especially as a Mum, its overwhelming. I try my best to soothe my dearest friends who are raising beautiful black boys in fear, while I live with guilt that my tiny blonde haired blue eyes babes will never face what they live with daily. I worry about our ability to grow food in the future, about our collective amnesia towards the horrors of history and hate, about drought, about crazy men having pissing contests with atomic bombs.
.
But here's the thing. .
I plant gardens. Every year. I plant seeds. Babies are born. Animals live and die. My sweet, thoughtful, compassionate children grow bigger and stronger and more capable by the day. We are teaching them to turn their faces towards the sun, to believe that only light can drive out darkness, and to know deep in their bones that they have the power to change the world around them. That is the garden I am planting. And what we've all learned in the process is that with or without us, life always finds a way.
.
I have planted two tiny souls in this beautiful garden, and despite my worry, because of them, I believe in tomorrow.
.

With this Valentine’s Day, the Lenten season also begins! ❤️💕 This is perfect, because my goal is to be more loving this year. While those of us who are single might fear a day devoted to love, let’s remember all the original true loves in our lives! We have so much more love to offer than just romantic love! So, call on those loves today, if it’s a dog, a book, or a hobby... #christianblog  #lifestyleblogger  #shesintentional  #choosejoy  #blogger  #newbloggers  #masslife  #duxburyma  #loving  #choosehim  #disabledblogger  #girlinawheelchair  #gracious  #lent  #aboundinginlove

Sunday Funday 😃!!
.
The “men” spent some time bonding over cars at the World of Wheels 🏎 this morning.
.
Nothing like hanging out with you dad, checking out giant trucks and snacking on a soft pretzel 🥨!
.
Think Liam found a new sign 🤧 for his bedroom! 🤣
.
Did anyone catch the bear 🐻 silhouette painted on the side of the truck? 😲.

🚫 BULLY FREE ZONE!! 🚫
.
Today the boys stand tall wearing their pink shirts (ok more like peach 🤷🏼‍♀️) to help make a stand against bullying .
.
Pink Shirt Day! 💕 Anti- Bullying Day! 👊🏻
.
As a mom I try to not only teach but show my boys: 💕 To be kind!
💕 Treat others how you want to be treated!
💕 That bullying is not ok - to be bullied or to be the bully is a no go!
💕 To embrace everyone differences!
.
No matter what age, gender, or walk of life you are from, bullying is not ok!
.
Choose 💗, not hate!
.
Who is wearing pink today? .

Living in a bit of a snow globe today! ☃️
.
When it has snowed ❄️ non-stop since last night, the driving conditions are horrible 😅, and this mama did not want to make 3 trips to the school 🙅🏼‍♀️.....
.
I made the decision to make it a “Snow Afternoon 👍🏻”. Picked up Liam, and grabbed his big brother 👦🏼, slowly 🐢 made our way home, and then played in knee deep snow 😃! .
Stay safe everyone ❤️!

Tu vois bien que je ne plie pas sous la charge
N'ayant plus peur des naufrages
Personne ici ne saura me mettre à terre
Je suis libre comme l'air
Les yeux vers le ciel mon âme au soleil
Je suis certain d'être en vie
Et j'ai les deux pieds sur terre
Mon âme au soleil j'ai l'instinct et l'envie
Tu sais bien que ta bave ne m'atteint pas
Je ne reçois plus le son de ta voix
Et pourtant toi tu m'accorde tellement de temps
Mais tu vois, tu basses du vent
Les yeux vers le ciel mon âme au soleil
Je suis certain d'être en vie
Et j'ai les deux pieds sur terre
Mon âme au soleil j'ai l'instinct et l'envie
J'ai creusé le sol
Pour y faire mes marques
J'ai cent cordes à mon arc
Les yeux vers le ciel mon âme au soleil
Je suis certain d'être en vie
Et j'ai les deux pieds sur terre
Mon âme au soleil j'ai l'instinct et l'envie

““So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” -Hebrews‬ ‭10:35-36‬

• If God has promised you something, no matter how far fetched or impossible it may seem, God will make a way. He is so, SO faithful. Hope y’all have a great Saturday.❤️
