“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
-Peter Drucker . Happy new year!! I’m looking forward to 2018. I’m starting the year off with a little detox (physically and spiritually) in effort to make space in my life for the future I want to create. As a result of this, I’m taking Instagram off my phone for the month of January just to break some habits and to create new ones. ✊🏼 Here is to a beautiful new year full of living and loving. 🥂💗

Christmas through the eyes of little people is pure magic. This has truly been one of my favorite Christmas’s of all time because Ruby and Norah have a way of reminding us how magical life really is. Everything to them is so fascinating, and why shouldn’t it be?! Stomping in the snow, receiving Christmas cards, taking cookies to the neighbors, finding a Christmas tree, watching the trains, and visiting with family and friends- it’s all so lovely. #adventureswithrubyandnorah

Merry Christmas! Life is beautiful. Not perfect in any way, but beautiful. I’m grateful, so so grateful, for the opportunity to live, to love and to learn. 🙏🏽🎄❤️

Last year in December, I was able to team up with @howdoesshe for a benefit concert that served some refugee families in our community. The night was so beautiful...full of friends, yummy treats, lovely music, laughter, gratitude, love, and even a few tears (the good kind of course). 😭❤️ . This year, I recognize that the logistics of putting together a benefit concert is just not doable for me right now, but I still wanted to do something. As a mama of two sweet little ladies, my “free” time is limited and finding a babysitter can be a bit of a challenge, so a friend of mine suggested doing an Instagram live series in lieu of a live show. This way I can play music from the comfort of my own home when by babes are fast asleep (in theory), and while it’s not exactly the same as if it were in person, it is one way I feel I can share music at this season of my life. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 . So I’m going out on a limb here and am doing an Instagram live every night for the 12 days leading up to Christmas. I see is as a modern form of Christmas caroling? 🤷🏽‍♀️ I’ve never done an Instagram live, so it’s a little intimidating, but I love Christmas music and am excited to share a song each night for anyone who would like to listen. It’s one small way I’m hoping to #lighttheworld this Christmas. ❤️💚❤️💚 . #modernchristmascaroling #12daysofchristmas #instalivemusic

I’m a little late on my #tbt but I have been meaning to post this all week with it being Thanksgiving and all. I recorded this little number (thanks to @merkley.lauren and @juneaudio) just this past spring. It’s one of my favorite children’s songs for many reasons, but mostly because its message is so simple and yet rings so deeply true to me. It is a message of love and of gratitude, and it seems that no matter what the struggle is that I might be in at any particular moment, when I can find my way back to these two spaces of being, there is peace and joy there. So as this December and holiday season unfolds, it’s my hope that somewhere underneath all the wrapping paper and twinkle lights- gratitude, and peace, and joy and above all, love will be there. I know this time of year can be both magical and heart wrenching for millions of people everywhere, so I’m sending this song out with love...💗 Happy December to all. #lighttheworld

Can anyone guess what hymn the church bells are ringing while at the park today? It’s odd because we just moved to this area, but it already feels somewhat familiar...almost as if I’ve lived here before.

I’ve been trying to be very intentional about how I use my time lately. The problem is...I have ADD when it comes to this. I want to be doing so many things all at once, but there are only 24 hours in the day. Can someone offer suggestions on how to work with this issue? How am I to meditate, read, write in my journal, exercise, go on dates with my man, care for my children, pay bills, be present, listen well, serve the needy, make healthy food to eat, clean up the mess, play with my kids, finish my graduate degree, write more songs, play guitar, sing with an open heart, perform in an all girls band, put together a benefit concert, teach Music Together classes, practice music therapy, oh, and possibly adopt a child, or maybe be a foster parent, or maybe do fertility treatments again...and I also want to serve in my church organization, and meet up with old friends, and remember to facetime with my family, and send out thank you cards, and think about Christmas shopping, and what sales are going on this week...oh, and Thanksgiving dinner, and making sure I have enough snacks for the plane ride for the kids...🤦🏽‍♀️ Maybe going to bed will be the best option at this point. The struggle is real- how does everyone else juggle it all?

Tonight, as we were putting these girls to bed, I had a sudden thought that got me all misty eyed as I imagined what it would be like to be in Mexico, or PR or Texas or Florida, and for a brief moment the thought of what it would be like to have lost a loved one in these tragic natural disasters consumed me. I know this sounds bleak, but it hit me for the first time and I could hardly bare the thought- what if this were the last time that I'd get to put my little girls to bed?? And then I thought of those around the world who were actually facing this reality. My heart aches for those who have lost homes, cars, pets, keepsakes, and have lost loved ones they hold dear. #prayingfortheworld

This little lady turned two yesterday. How in the world do I have a two year old already?! She is both sweet and sassy. This girl knows what she wants and makes it known. She's as strong as they come and has been since day one. At the same time, she's a sensitive little soul. She loves to dance, currently only wants to wear her pink converse shoes, she's in love with her dad (of course) and has no fear when it comes to sliding down the big slide at the park. She loves her "wah wah" (aka- Norah), and is such a joy to have in our family. How did we get so lucky?? We're so grateful to have her. #rubymayturnstwo

"Let's do this, let's crank it." said @josemerk on the tea cup ride. Ruby's face had me 😂, in literal tears when we got off this ride. How I 💗 this fam of mine.
