I almost didn’t march this year. “I’m so tired of white women.” That was my reason. They talk a lot, but they don’t do a lot. I experience a lot of white women who don’t walk out their strongly held opinions and that can be tiring. But @josette.rising texted me and told me how excited she was to march together after this year of learning about activism and becoming more involved and literally seeing the consciousness of our country changing. I’m so thankful I went, I’m so thankful I got to chant “we are the people, the mighty mighty people” with thousands of other people fighting for the same vision. And I can’t wait to tell our girls how we marched and registered voters and to tell them the story of the 2018 blue wave. #thisiswhywemarch #womensmarch2018 #womensmarch #womensmarchdallas #womensmarchdallas2018

Just two peas in a pod. These smiles were well worth the exhaustion of an IKEA trip with four kiddos.

The other day I told Savannah that her favorite babysitter/“Uncle” Jojo was coming over to watch her and Geny. She groaned “NNNOOOOOOOOOOOO SHE IS NOT MY BEST FRIEND” which was news to me. Jojo has been one of her her favorite people in the universe since she was born. I asked who her best friend was and she said, with zero hesitation, “gramma.” 😭😭😭 My mama’s Gramma was so special to her and I know my mom longs for that special connection with her granbabies, and she works hard for it. It’s really beautiful to watch their relationship grow into something so special, I’m so thankful we are close enough and she makes the time for all her girls 💕💕💕

“If any of you are around when I have to meet my day, I don't want a long funeral. And if you get somebody to deliver the eulogy, tell them not to talk too long. Every now and then I wonder what I want them to say...I'd like somebody to mention that day, that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to give his life serving others. I'd like for somebody to say that day, that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to love somebody. I want you to say that day, that I tried to be right on the war question. I want you to be able to say that day that I did try to feed the hungry. I want you to be able to say that day that I did try in my life to clothe those who were naked. I want you to say, on that day, that I did try, in my life, to visit those who were in prison. I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity." The Drum Major Instinct" (1968)

This girl keeps us on our toes. Love our Geny bean 💕 #genevievesteedstagram
I got to stop by and see the @floccstudio space for the first time today. Since leaving Weld we have been keep our options open for space to work, and this space was well worth the wait. If you’re a creative in Dallas and find yourself looking for honest and vulnerable community that will push you personally and creatively, you want to check out FLOCC Studio. Some of our best friends are behind it and it will be amazing.

She wants to be a ballerina and a gymnast, and also ride a big grownup bike. She loves being silly and making us laugh, and she goes from tomboy to princess real quick. She wears her heart and her feelings on her sleeve, a constant reminder to pay attention to my own feelings. She’s creative and smart, and she’s got good jokes. Savannah Elizabeth is a treasure and she refuses to let me take her picture these days. I’ll keep trying. For now, her beautiful feet. #savannahsteedstagram

Three most recently finished books: .
“Braving the Wilderness” by Brené Brown: Queen Brené did not disappoint, this book was a good reminder that we are all humans and all deserve grace and patience.
“Brown is the New White” by Steve Philips: A really easy read and inspiring going into the 2018 midterms, it got me excited to get out and mobilize progressive voters. .
“Callings” by Gregg Levoy: hoo boy. This book will no doubt influence my life more than I can articulate. It’s beautifully written and half my book is highlighted because it was gem after gem all themed around finding and following our Callings in life, what it looks like to say no and what it looks like to say yes when we are called to something. I’m left feeling confident as ever that being home with my girls is a sacred calling that my shadow battles against but that my soul longs to embrace fully. A good reminder that Truth will resonate in our bones.

It’s that time again!! I’ll be teaming up to teach an Introduction to Essential Oils and Natural Living with two of my closest friends in a couple weeks - we will have videos, graphics and written classes to make it accessible to everyone - if you’d like an invite comment below or shoot me a text! .
We will cover: essential oil basics (what they are, how we use them and why you need them), natural beauty (think makeup, skincare, beauty products), household ditch and switch (cleaners, bath and body products, supplements) and of course we’ll tell you all about Young Living and why we are in love with this company.

Real life. Sitting on the floor of my kitchen wearing my 30 pound almost two year old because I am the only place she’ll sleep these days while my four year old crawls across my legs and meows like a cat and refuses to talk to me in human talk but is frustrated with my inability to understand her cat talk. 🙃 It’s so easy to forget the maddening feeling of being with little ones all day after weeks of having solid time to yourself every day, and at the same time it would take something very special for me to give up this time with them. What I won’t ever do is put on fake positivity and deny the difficulty of these moments and days and weeks, because without surrendering to the difficulty you water down the joy. My mantra for this week is “this is important work,” and it is working pretty well, I’ve only yelled 5 times 😂💁🏼‍♀️👌🏼🤦🏼‍♀️ #momsohard #wecandohardthings

God loves me in many ways but one way that I especially appreciate is lady friends who can handle me at 10, tell me hard things, love me enough to KNOW me, laugh through hard times, and this one in particular has taken up residence in my heart this past year. I love Kelsea and Kelsea loves me and both of us love wine and avoiding our feelings 💕

Our Geny is getting really big and we are having lots of fun getting to know her and watching her personality emerge. She loves to play baby dolls with her sister, play with play doh, make us laugh and scare us with her daredevil attitude. She’s also losing that baby face more and more each day, it’s a little heartbreaking and a little exciting, which pretty much sums up parenting. #genevievesteedstagram

Y’all. If this isn’t the realest 👏🏽 damn 👏🏽thing I’ve heard in a long time. I have been told by some people to tone down my political message because it may hurt my Young Living business and I’m sorry but ..... am I wrong that if we are going to live a life of WELLNESS that includes checking our hearts for prejudices and participation in systems of oppression? 🤷🏼‍♀️

The place this family holds in my heart is so sweet and special. Beto and Lindsey hold a space for honesty and vulnerability that most people can’t stand in. It’s an honor to do life with them and call them friends and choose them as family. Today is Beckham’s birthday, and there aren’t words to express how much I wish we were attending his party and watching him and Savannah play and chase each other with their little siblings on their heels trying to keep up. I don’t understand some parts of life and this is one of them. Happy Birthday sweet Beckham, forever missing you and imagining what would have been 💙💙💙 #beatsforbeckham
