amandaseeyoudarrr In a matter of 4 weeks, my @dannerboots have seen sunshine, rain and snow. They are my first pair of true hiking boots and I am stoked to take them around the world for years to come! 17h

amandaseeyoudarrr What can I say about this crazy? @ladycascades and I became fast friends through @Instagram when we realized we were walking through infertility together. I quickly realized how deeply our souls were knit together, and she became one of my best friends pretty much instantly.

Susanna and her husband have been trying for a baby for 2 years. After thousands of dollars spent on infertility treatments and a million nights of heartache... Everything failed. We have cried together so many times, and tried to encourage each other in our darkest moments. Her friendship is one of the best things that have come out of my journey.

I am so beside myself to announce that she is finally PREGNANT, and is currently carrying IDENTICAL TWINS! I can't imagine anyone in the world more deserving of this miracle!

Babe, you and @mr.cascades are going to kill it at being parents. I love you to the moon and back!!!

amandaseeyoudarrr In the past 2 weeks, I've seen 3 different people throw large trash out of their cars and onto the ground. I can't explain how much this infuriates me!

Unfortunately, people treat our National Parks the same way. Like @parksproject, I believe it is our responsibility to protect and care for our earth. Each purchase (like this rad compass necklace) from their site helps fund a project to better our National Parks. I will forever support their mission and vow to do my part to keep our earth beautiful and clean! Every person matters. #dontbetrashy

amandaseeyoudarrr I was honored when @socality asked me to write a blog for them about my fertility journey. A lot of tears and prayer went into writing it, and I can't wait to hear what you guys think! May God shed his light from my dark season onto yours.

Link to the blog is in my bio.

amandaseeyoudarrr Isn't it rad when one of your favorite pairs of shoes comes from a rad company that's changing the world?

@Ssekodesigns employs women in Uganda to help end the cycle of poverty. They also partner with organizations in Kenya and Ethiopia to help spread the employment opportunities to the women there as well. I am so proud to own a pair of these beautifully hand-crafted booties from Ethiopia! They are the business! 😎 #ssekostyle

amandaseeyoudarrr This one's for the lonely,
the one's that seek and find,
only to be let down time after time
This one's for the torn down,
the experts at the fall,
Come on friends get up now
you're not alone at all

amandaseeyoudarrr I've been the assistant to my friend @dalepartridge for almost 3 years now. The message you see written here is an excerpt from his newest book, #PeopleOverProfit. It is one that resonates deep within my soul, and the reason I share my heart with you all so often.

Dale explains how our culture is cyclical, and that we've come to value profit over people. He explains why it is monumentally important that we fight culture so we can get back to valuing people over profit. It is an incredible read for any leader or entrepreneur, or anyone who values a human being! Link to purchase is in @dalepartridge's bio!

amandaseeyoudarrr Today my feed was filled with shoutouts to hard-working moms and wives. The sacrifice and love each mother gives is absolutely recognizable and they deserve more than a day for celebration!

However, my own situation caused me to reflect deeply on the fact that mine wasn't the only heart to "survive" this day. There are so many who have lost their mother, some whose mothers were never in their lives, some mothers who lost their children or endured miscarriages...and others like me who are still waiting to become a mother. This day for us can be a reminder of what we either never had, no longer have, or don't have quite yet.

I hope that each that each of you have been kind to yourselves today. Your heart will not always be broken, or incomplete, and you will not always feel pain. I pray you're able to look to the future with hope-filled eyes and that you allow God to hold you close tonight. There's always a silver-lining.. Hold fast for it.

amandaseeyoudarrr @samciurdar and I got to design a @casetify for my Mom for Mother's Day... And she LOVED it! We put her favorite bible verse on it (Proverbs 3:5-6) and made sure it consisted of many versions of her favorite color, pink! Love you Mommy! 3w
