It’s been a crazy long week + why do I seem to move in sloooow motion when it’s cold? Getting washed up and ready to head into a new week. Looking forward to a fresh start, new opportunities and an open page to write upon. ☺️ Happy weekending + cheers to a new week!

Mom tip: let them help when they’re little, it’s when they actually want to! Hand this girl a wipe and she’ll get to work, happily! It’s entertainment for them and house cleaning for you in one. 😍

Baby wipes are good for SO many things! What other things do you use baby wipes for?

I can’t espresso how much you bean to me!

Okay, cheesy I know, but this day, that’s been filled with diapers changes, client coaching calls, laundry, school pickup (yep, preschool was still in session, and so Brayden did some math testing at #homeschool today too), calendar planning and more... I wanted, and needed to take a moment to say how grateful I am for you!

In this life, we don’t all agree on every little thing, but I love the community we can create regardless. In the words of #MLK, “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

To those of you that like and comment, to those that respond to our crazy family insta stories, to those that click over to blog posts or even just respond when I feel vulnerable or need advice, thank you! You make this space, this online outlet, exactly what it is.

If YOU need a word of encouragement today, leave a comment below... I just feel like sharing the love. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

On the way to church this morning...

Skylar, “I have a song for you.”

*quiet

Brayden, “Why aren’t you singing?”

Skylar, “Um, I’m a little impressive.”

Brayden, “Then we really can’t wait to hear!”

*quiet

Me, “Do you mean embarrassed?”

Skylar, “Oh, yeah.”

Me, “It’s okay, sometimes we can be both.”

Friends... no matter what’s in you, it’s impressive! Sing that song, write those words, tell that story, give that smile, let out your joy, your belly laughs. We’re all on the edge of our seats waiting for what you have to share with the world. So yeah, sometimes it comes through a place of being intimidated or embarrassed... but hear this word today; you’re impressive!

Quite the chill weekend over here! And by that, I mean the chill temps hitting Florida this weekend. We’re again joining in winter... and I’ve got my hat on! 😂❄️😂

Currently wishing for a day to sleep in and stay under the covers for awhile... but I don’t that’ll happen anytime soon. Meantime, I’ll stay cozy in my favorite winter color pallete and coffee in hand. ☕️

I see you. I see the sleepless nights while you rock your babe and make business decisions and toss a load of laundry into the dryer because it was long forgotten since that morning. Where so much happened in a span of twelve hours since hitting start on the wash cycle and the button to run the dry cycle, and yet it feels as though there is so much more to do. Like we’ve already forgotten the good that happened.

I see the tears you cried when you “just couldn’t”. When a bill arrived that wasn’t expected, or a teacher asked for more of your time, or an unexpected ER visit or any-other-thing changed your plans, again.

Let's offer grace, and thanks, to yourself and to others.

Today, I'm saying thank you, and I hope you can hear it.

Gray for days. And coffee too!

Waking up inspired. And early. And in gray.... my favorite color for the winter. And who am I kidding, basically my favorite no matter the season. What’s your go-to color this season? And what inspires you to hop out of bed in the morning?!

Oh my goodness!! 😍


When you get headshots of your baby girl (she’s only 18 months!), and you’re just smitten. It’s about how I feel right now and can’t even choose!

If you had to pick one, which would it be? 👉🏻 Also, she had soooo much fun in front of the camera (had some on my stories yesterday), and even when it was her brothers’ turns, she wanted to jump back in! Too much!! #AriaLeeBlue

Going to bed with a mostly checked off to-do list, with laundry mostly done, and feeling mostly tired. Story of #momlife right? At least this little corner of my home is clean. 💃🏻 And for this home and the family it holds, I’m completely grateful.
Home, sweet home. ❄️


We looove to travel, and loved romping in the snow, but there’s nothing like walking back through the comfort of our own front door to clean sheets and coffee in my own mug. Kids first question... “ok google, how many more days till Christmas?” 🙈 I think it’s time to pack away the 🎄.

Happy Sundaze 👩‍👧‍👦


We’re back home in Florida and slowly warming up, though it’s still cold here! Though this is a real life kind of snapshot... one kiddo still in his winter gear, one hiding behind me and one just ready to get down and run. Mom-life is busy, for sure, but beautiful too. While we’re making up for lost hours of sleep, we’re also settling into 2018, and if you need me, I’ll just be over here cleaning, sorting, laundering (and any other OCD “ing” thing I can do). Am I the only one who likes to purge as a new year begins??


Watch the #GoldenGlobes tonight and I have to say, I’m one PROUD #omaginsiders influencer. #oprah amazed with her speech as the first African American to receive the #cecilebdemille award, and took us all on a journey! “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” - @oprah

So, you guys, it’s cold!

Though I’m not the only one to say it... Basically social media has turned into the weather channel with photos of record low temps filling our feeds while the entire United States feels like Siberia.

Happy New Year, right?! In this season of making healthier choices and setting goals, it’s definitely a hard time to desire a salad. Personally, I’m craving warm, wholesome and hearty foods, and I know my family is feeling the same. Give me something warm and I’ll be happily filling my belly.

So, as we’re just days into the new year, I’m kind of teetering between enjoying the rest of our holiday (we’re still on winter vacation!) and buckling down for a clean, organized home and healthy new year.

Just know if you’re feeling the same way, you’re not alone. It’s not about perfection. Healthy, wholesome food for your family, and your babies, doesn’t mean you have to be perfectly Pinterest-y. You’re enough. You’re loved. And you’ve got this! [ad] Today I’m sharing a couple of soup recipes for my growing babe (okay, we ALL like them actually!), that are warming and hearty on #freshmommyblog.com. By using @thebabybullet complete baby food making system it actually saves time and money (cause ya'll, baby food is expensive!) while still allowing my littles to eat fresh and natural. And the best part? It’s easy to whip up too. #ad #BabyBullet #BabyBulletAmbassador

“When you see someone putting on his big boots, you can be pretty sure that an adventure is going to happen.” -A.A. Milnie

Today we strapped on our boots... and snow suits, hats and gloves, in search of an epic snow adventure. Taking two Florida families and dropping them in frigid temps in search of snow is quite a sight, I’m sure. But totally epic.
And also? We found the fastest snow-tube run of my life!! Yep, a snow adventure indeed. Here’s hoping we wake to a winter wonderland outside our cabin tomorrow and another day of snow-venturing. ❄️ Cheers to many more days of boot strapping!
Oh my goodness, you guys. We had a winter vacay planned to take the family to see snow. Little did we know it would happen to be the week where the entire US feels like Siberia!! It’s COLD. And there’s actually no snow... yet. We’ll see. [AD] I did stock up on natural beauty products for some New Year pampering though, and Aria is helping me!
@giovannicosmetics has been amazing at reducing the frizz and dryness of my hair, plus @mineralfusionnaturalbrands natural makeup for this trip and @pacificabeauty coconut probiotic mask and moisturizer for hydrated skin in this weather!

You can stock up on all of these products, and thousands more, as part of Vitamin Extravaganza while you’re grabbing your groceries at @sprouts from 1/3 thru 1/10! #GiovanniHairCare #2chicFrizzBeGone #vitaminextravaganza

Slow your scroll!! With all of the posts flooding our walls of words, goals, and intentions for this new year, it's easy to feel overwhelmed, to feel less than, to feel like you're already behind if you're not "on top of it" and have a word for the year chosen!

You can totally and silently raise your hand if you're feeling this way ('cause that was totally me). I have to say, while I've been working on my vision board for 2018 (and I'm SO excited about it) and have had words for the year swirling my head, I even felt a slight moment of panic while scrolling today.

Wait, what?! It's the FIRST day of the new year!

We're not behind. We're not "less than." We've only begun all that's in store and I just want to remind you today that YOU are enough!

So yeah, Happy New Year and let's celebrate our strides, together.

Can’t quite pack the magic away yet. ✨ Definitely heading into 2018 like Aria though, no matter what’s going on... just dance through it!!!

Side note: had a little day-date to see @thegreatestshowman (one of my new fave movies!!!!), and we’ve been playing the soundtrack on repeat! Totally dance-worthy. #ablissfulchristmas #omaginsiders

You guys!!!!!! This is a big WIN moment for me. THIS JUST HAPPENED TODAY! Our original, and popular #FreshMommyBlog “I Coffee So Hard” tees (that GIVE BACK!!) are now for sale on Amazon.com!! This was such a process, and more intense than I thought it would be (purchasing UPC codes, learning new systems, and so much more)... but a few late nights and a bit of determination later and it's listed. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it. Whew. Now I’m celebrating... with coffee of course. ☕️
.
Sometimes it's about stepping out and doing the things you have in your heart to do... even when you don't know exactly what you're doing. Even when it means doing it scared. I want this to be an encouragement to you today to do the thing you've been wanting to do, the thing you've been "meaning" to do, the thing you've been putting off... or at least take a step in that direction.
.
If you ALREADY have one of my tees and feel like leaving a review on the Amazon page, I'd BE SO HONORED!!! #DoItScared #LiveYourBestLife #OMagInsiders
