#itsthelittlethings

Question, do you still snail mail? Not the boring stuff like bills or paperwork, but actual notes, cards or letters?
•
I’ve been trying to be better about dropping notes in the mail a few times a month, to family or friends far away. It is also a great way to get my kiddos involved by having them include some artwork or their own little cards to brighten someone’s day.

Mila was so sick a couple days ago, along with teething. An this was the only way she would sleep. For 3 days straight. Only with her daddy.

It’s never a dull moment with a 2 year old who wants to play with makeup, pretend we’re princesses, and play hide and seek 👑🙈

No Peeking

On their big day, the bride surprised her groom with these bulldog cake toppers. I made sure to capture them before they made their way to the cake 🐾 the look on his face when it was revealed told me she had nailed it!

Out date night out...kid free!! A blessing and one of the reasons we moved back home. We need help. 
Meanwhile, Munchkin is enjoyed a day of thrifting, getting her favorite kombucha, going to dinner with her grandparents, and off to shop for fall clothes. 
Feeling grateful and blessed.

Change is hard, but this littlest can't wait to live at this house in the country where barefoot walks, cat chasing, and horse feeding are the norm.
.
Change is hard, but it can be oh so worth the roadbumps.
.
Change is hard, but when it's God's will, the timing is perfect and the outcome is good.
.
Change is hard, but I've had months to get used to the idea of moving, and now the excitement outweighs the dread.
.
🌱How do you cope with change? Any moving survival tips?🌱

It’s the little things that count. I was made an extra crème brûlée at work because I haven’t tried one before. When I saw this the next day, I lit up like a child on Christmas morning. I’m always the one giving so it was nice to be on the receiving end. 🥰🥰🥰 I’m not complaining about giving either. I do it because I enjoy seeing others smile, just needed to make that clear lol #cremebrulee #atasteofheaven #ifeelspecial #itsthelittlethings #cookingisthewaytomyheart #foodisthewaytothesoul

This morning Gio acted fine but said he was full after a small bowl and cheerios (and he didn’t even want his bonus bowl of oops all berries so we knew he was serious!). He said he felt fine, just full, but then went and laid on the couch. He had great temperament all day but took a four hour nap after lunch! So we were going to let him stay up later with us tonight but he asked to go to bed without books before 8:00! I’m so curious to see how he’ll be doing tomorrow. I’m hoping it’s not the start of something! 😬 #giorgioharris

#somethinggood dropped what I was doing to chase tonight’s sunset. Chasing sunsets would be an amazing job...or band name! 
Today had its ups and downs, but being able to search out a moment of calm for myself made all the difference. There is something especially soothing about watching a sunset near the water.

I have been working on building a website/shop, all of which, I am very novice at! But I am almost done and can’t wait to have it live for all those who are interested in anything I’ve made, or commissioning me to make something.

I just got home from a week long road trip to visit family, and I didn’t realize how much of a rejuvenation I was in need of! A full week of mountains, family, and adventure. 
I was super excited to see how these new cups turned out, so I picked them up before I even made it home, and I am pretty pleased! Those brush strokessssss 〰️

So here I am sitting on my living room floor playing with the cool new stickers I got for my planner instead of taking the shower I so desperately need.🤣 (but they're stickers, guys! They need to stuck on everything...immediately!🤩)
☆☆☆☆☆
I really just want to drop a note in case anyone needs these reminders:
•Find joy the little things.
•Keep what's important to YOU in your line of sight, as it's so easy to get distracted with all the flashiness of todays world.
•Time is precious. Not only use it wisely, but be present in the moment. •Stickers are still the coolest things invented. 😎

Life never slows down, seconds to minutes to hours through to days accumulating into weeks and so forth. I blinked and I was a #mumofthree ... responsible for three incredible humans I want nothing more then to live for eternity with. So when I witness these moments where my own father shares inspirational moments with his grandchildren the magic of the moment doesn’t pass me by. I take it for all it is, one day I won’t be gifted such a moment so to pass even one by seems such a waste. #itsthelittlethings in life that are worth living for. The little moments, and certainly the little humans. #thoughtsofamom #momlife #candidphotography #lifesmoments #bedtimestories #bedtime #papa #readtoyourkids

Shout out to #delta employees for making my flight from JFK and the two terminal and gate changes as comfortable as possible for me in accommodating my needs. I want to commend both the airline and #JFK personnel on wonderful service. So glad I started being more active with my Skymiles again (I've been with them since they bought Northwest and was a NW Worldperks member). Sorry American Airlines, but since you've become the biggest even with my Platinum and Chairman Preferred, I've been left cold lately with my travel with you. ✈

Tongue out to you, Monday! 👅 I kicked today’s booty & am super proud. Instead of telling myself there’s more to do, because we all know there always is, I’m thinking about my accomplishments today. 
#
I have all my ducks in a row, for this week and I’m dang proud. I’ll be honest though, I started my productivity yesterday & it helped me feel successful today. I even ended the weekend with a date night & movie! 
#
Yes, my laundry basket might still be full, & dinner isn’t fully prepped, I still haven’t ordered my husband his new shaving razors, or worked out. But it’s 5 OCLOCK & I still have time. Woo hoo! 
#
One thing I struggle with is feeling like when there’s too much to do I just wanna ignore it, but obviously you can’t. So I planned my daily tasks/goals & enjoyed myself while I conquer them. I freakin LOVE It! I didn’t look at anything as a chore, but a blessing I get the opportunity to get stuff done.
#
What motivates you guys not just on Mondays, but every day?

I can bend my foot and wiggle my toes! This is huuuge for me. For years I couldn't move my foot at all. The bottoms of my feet used to have deep cracks due to this thickness  caused by my skin order. It made it so hard to walk sometimes. The last few months I have seen a major change.  I don't know exactly what made it better.  But I am so grateful that I can do this. The bottoms of my feet are smooth agian.. and i can f##$ing wiggle my toes!

Been feeling so out of it this past week - 2 weeks. TBH.
Not feeling motivated to do much of anything, not really finding excitement in a lot of things like usual, and feeling so sluggish and tired. 
I don’t know if it’s just stress or a phase my body is enduring or maybe I’m fighting off a cold/sickness or something. 
Was so excited for my 3 day weekend and found myself craving crazy amounts of sugar the entire time. I literally ate so much ice cream. I literally looked up on the internet if it’s safe to eat ice cream everyday. Basically it said it wouldn’t kill me so...yeah. 
Also feel kind of guilty about it because I’ve sort of created this page/environment mostly based on healthy eating and exercise and here I am with a sugar craving like no other. But whatever you grow through what you go through right?i can help people better if I’ve been through what their experiencing, and I’m human too, so if you thought I was a vegetable eating robot you’ve got the wrong page...
Then this morning got some signs that I might get my period again, so shoutout to this nexplanon implant cause I freaking love having my period like every other week.

On another note a family member told me in Asian countries they don’t eat sugar like Americans do, like it’s not even part of their diet at all. Maybe I should just move there and quit sugar cold turkey. 
Life is weird sometimes. Thanks for listening to my rant 🤘🏻 #iamhuman
