momfluential Friday morning #armparty with a whole lotta @alexandani and some #hotjewels hiding underneath. Very jingly jangly - I'm not sneaking up on anyone! #morebracelets 1d

momfluential The strip mall parking lot couldn't even contain this ridiculous #sunset. I ran out of the store to take this pic and left the cashier cashing. "Go! Run!" she said, "you gotta get a picture of that one." And just like that I became the kind of person who runs out of @homegoods to take a picture of the sky on her cellphone. #nofilter #california 2d

momfluential #tbt to one last glance over my shoulder as I dashed through the market on a rainy day in #Rhodes #Greece. As much as I love to #cruise, the quick stops are bittersweet. There's a castle I've yet to explore and shops full of magic lanterns and cashmere shawls. There were gyros and dolmades & local yogurt with honey to taste. I've hopped on and off the island 3x now. I'd go again in a heartbeat. 2d

momfluential It's done! It's done! You guys... I totally #knit myself a #sweater and it fits and it's super cozy. I am actually proud of myself for getting this done! 4d

momfluential Sometimes the slightest shift in the air can generate infinite possibility. I snapped this picture as I breezed by this cool fluffy blossom. Hours later when I reviewed my photos I noticed the little seeds took flight with my passing. It's not much but it's possibility and where there is possibility there is #hope 1w

momfluential #tbt to that time I blindfolded @marlymaso on her #birthday and dragged her to the set of #freakshow after she publicly announced that nothing cool ever happened in #neworleans and then she totally had to eat her words because she realized she was on the set of #americanhorrorstory and she ate some beignet and heard some jazz and got her tarot cards read and checked out Mardi Gras gowns and you know what? Live and learn and listen to your mother! Such a #win. I probably won't ever top that one. 1w

momfluential Do you #selfie? Today on the blog I wrote about my shocking discoveries when I looked at over 400 mom blogs last week. If you are a blogger, check your vanity and insecurity at the door and read this post on Momfluential.net. It could change everything! 1w

momfluential I was so impressed by this paddle boarder -a common sight in #california but this one was paddling strong and tall on the #deadsea in #israel . It struck me as an act of courage & confidence because you can't wipe out here like you can in a normal body of water. One splash, one drop in your eye, one gulp and you are in a world of pain and misery. Didn't seem to phase him. Still wondering what his story is. 2w

momfluential Four times on my walk today I randomly glanced down to find #heart shaped rocks at my feet. Perhaps it's a sign of some sort. It made me silly happy each time. Thanks for the #love universe! 2w

momfluential It seemed like the cast of The Wiz should have come dancing out of the echoey tunnel in this #graffiti filled wash that we stumbled on in the middle of the woods on my #hike today. I've walked right by it a dozen times not knowing what was hidden down there. Wow. Such an odd non urban find. #california #nature #goplaces #treasurehunting 2w

momfluential Heading out on a nice long hike. Life's too short for boring #socks (cc @thisiscarrie - recognize this pair too? Part of my Daiso Hanukkah haul ) 2w

momfluential #Feathers #compasses #handknit #diy cardigan wrap and my thinking cap. That's #wiw today while moving some big heavy mental rocks. The wrap is rainbow striped but my day feels b&w. I'll take another pic if a witch gets conveniently crushed under my house. 2w

momfluential Finally. It's over. So seriously done with today. It was one of those days where the best thing to do was #run till the endorphins kick in or the pain in your shins takes over for the lump in your throat and the ache in your heart. No faking it till you make it on those days. Just taking it outside. Here's hoping for a a better, more positive outlook tomorrow. #sunset #hardday 3w
  •   momfluential No thanks @sundaystilwell - today's better off put to bed! I'll take a drink though. 3w
  •   sundaystilwell That works too. 3w
  •   alexis_gentry Hugs 3w
  •   roztime Just did the same thing - dropped the groceries in the kitchen and got my butt to yoga, the rest of the house and kids toys be damned. Work will start tomorrow whether I care for myself or not, and I'd rather have cared for myself. 3w

  •   artistlani I hear ya! I spent the morning on the sofa, smothered by 5 needy pets. Give yourself a break and listen to what you need. Sending big hugs and positive light your way. xo 3w

momfluential This is how my #travel story started. A #jewelry board in the Middle East and a dream to see the world. This isn't my board but it looks just like the one I had at 16. The bits and baubles from the Arab market still rattle around in tins and desk drawers and memories. My #wanderlust is an infection that will never be cured, nor will I ever get over the urge to discover and create. I've been searching for a #oneword to meditate on for 2015 and I think it's finally come to me. I choose #treasure. It's the thing that's always sought, often elusive and sometimes right under your nose. Sometimes it lands at your feet like a gift from the universe, sometimes you have to travel far to find it and sometimes you must craft it yourself, relentlessly tearing back your stitches till you get it right. 2015 is going to be a treasure hunt for me. Can't wait to see what I find. Now someone tell me where to order that word up on a charm! 3w

momfluential Third time's a charm? I got halfway through my #malabrigo sweater and found it was way, way too large. Despite being heartbroken about two weeks of work "wasted" I pulled it all out ("frogged it" in knitting terms) and started again with a new pattern. Took me two tries to get the sizing right on this one but I think I'm in the zone now. It's so hard to abandon your work and start over. Painful even. But something precious is something done right, with care and patience. Sometimes you have to stop, assess and frog it. Perhaps I will call this my metaphorical sweater if I ever manage to finish it! 3w
