Anyone here naturally bold and fearless? Not me.😬 I’m much more inclined to stay on safe, easy paths. I’m tempted to keep my thoughts, dreams and faith to myself because I am worried what people will think. Gosh, I feel sad just admitting that. 😔 BUT God calls us to more. Even something as simple as sharing my artwork online has been a scary experience. Sharing His Word. Sharing my faith. All of it has been a bit scary. .
.
.
I recently took #enneagram test. I am a 9. I’m was not shocked to read words like peacemaker ✌🏻, avoids conflict at all costs, people-pleaser and insulates self from threats... yup, that’s me. I tend to avoid anything that gets me out of my comfort zone. I like my bubble! BUT I know that God wants more for me.
.
.
.
Literally, every time I’ve stepped out of my bubble and trusted God with the results, He has exceeded my expectations. Whether it has been as simple sharing my art online or something big like moving. He has been faithful. He’s already gone before me so I can be strong, bold and fearless. .

A quiet morning with a sleeping baby and coffee that is actually hot. Moments like this are far and few between these days. Pretty much non-existent actually.
.
As we try and learn each other, establish some sort of routine and continue to live moment to moment.. it’s easy to get caught up in the frustration and confusion of our new reality. Some days it feels like we are merely surviving. But with each new day comes a sunrise of God’s promises and His reminder that JOY always comes in the morning. // Psalm 30:5
.
This reminder may be disguised in the smile of your child, a beautifully painted sky or even in a quiet morning with a sleeping baby and a hot cup of coffee.
.
If seeking out the little joys in life have the ability to turn a sleepless night into a rejuvenated day of endless possibilities... then cheers to seeking out joy daily and the coffee that gives us the energy to live into and recognize these sweet moments!

Dinner date with my boys after getting haircuts in downtown Bend: Thai salad, kids’ pasta, and pink peppercorn cortado! We loved this little kid-friendly joint with both indoor and outdoor play areas! #coffeeandsalad

UNPLUG. Take a moment to recharge, reboot, or SHUT IT DOWN. Sometimes when we are overwhelmed with life, it is best to simply take a step back and unplug. Walk away. Sit with your thoughts. Sit with your emotions. And let them ride through you. And then...let it go. ⁠

The thing is, I’m a pretty lousy housewife. I’m not tidy or well-organized, and I rarely have a warm dinner waiting when my husband gets home (I do feed our kids, just not him 😬). I’m great at creating a budget, but not so hot at sticking to it because something *always* comes up with 5 kids (usually a trip to the doctor).
.
I’m not going to win mother of the year anytime soon. I get frustrated too easily. I spend more time telling my kids it’s good for them to be bored than I do actually enjoying fun activities with them. My “playing” skills are limited to reading them books. All day. I have no grace when it comes to bed times because I *need* that hour after they’re asleep to recharge the introvert in me. They will probably remember the mother of their childhood constantly saying, “Is that kind or helpful?” about nearly everything.
.
I spent last night reading through grad school programs and then just laughed; because I won’t have that sort of time for way too many more years to come. And at that point I won’t have anything to write down useful enough to get me accepted. Can shower one handed while holding a newborn? Good at making mediocre dinners while wearing two babies (as depicted)? Stellar butt-wiper of tiny humans? Great middle of the night cuddler even though I hate being touched while I sleep? I’m not sure any of those will help... .

I am constantly saying I am behind on everything in life. There aren’t enough hours in the day to get caught up. Not enough cups of coffee to keep me running. But maybe I’m not so behind. Maybe I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. Exhausted, sometimes a little depleted, but gosh darn it, so well loved. I just hope that these 6 humans I live with and adore so very much will one day be able to look back on all this crazy beautiful blur of season and say the same: that I loved them well enough.

Fear of failure has controlled so much of my life, when God has asked me to walk by faith. You know what I finally figured out? You’re not going to get where you want in life without making some mistakes to learn the lessons necessary to be better! This is such a crazy, fun season for our family as we both pursue dreams that we’ve had for years. The fact that we get to do it in the location we always dreamed of living is such a blessing! We’re not anywhere close to where we want to be, but learning to embrace the lessons along the way and not giving up. The joy is in the journey. I'd love to help you build the life you're dreaming of. I'd love to share what a blessing better health has been for me. I'd love to link arms with you and discover what God has planned! I'd love to help you HOPE again. 💕

You’re being too hard on yourself, my friend. Leading with criticism only breeds more negative emotion which then spirals into more self-sabotage, disconnection from the body and inner wisdom, health issues (physical, mental, and emotional), negative life experiences, “bad luck”, etc. .

When we come from a place of curiosity, we get the chance to learn. When we come from a place of compassion, we get the chance to love and respect ourselves. Doesn’t that sound pretty amazing?!
.

As you can tell, I could not possibly love this quote from psychologist Laura Goldner anymore. Just WOW! I had THE BEST time chatting all things women, food, and body on this week’s episode of #ketoforwomen. It is a MUST LISTEN episode for all women, mothers, partners. .

Search “keto for women” wherever you listen to podcasts. (Side note: Obviously, not an episode about #keto, so you don’t need to follow a #ketodiet to benefit. 😊)

I’m a ONE on the #enneagram, which means I love me some goals and lists and turning my “to-do’s” into “TA-DA’s”! It’s great! It energizes me and keeps me headed where I want to go.
••
BUT this year has kicked my keister - between unplanned responsibilities, an illness that I’m in month eight of dealing with and projects that didn’t go as planned....
••
What’s a goal oriented person to do???
••
Well, let me tell you what I do: I ask the Lord how HE says I’m doing!
••
The Lord does things in us that are unmeasurable by goals and immeasurable in worth.
••
His opinion is the only one that matters and He has a plan to redeem all the “setbacks” and still get me where I need to be right on time. At the end of the day, obedience is the only goal I need.

Sometimes in-order to reconnect with yourself you need to find your inner child -  go barefoot outdoors, play, laugh, remember what it's like to be light and carefree again...this is not always my strong suit but luckily these little boys of mine are silly and wild which is a constant reminder that life doesn't have to be all serious all the time. 🌿 My floral alphabet print is finished, framed and getting ready to add to my #etsyshop soon! This one is framed and ready to go and would make a wonderful addition to a nursery. price framed $100 size: 16x20 .

I have a thing for celebrating.  I like to #CelebrateAbsolutelyEverything, actually.  Mr. Awesome and I picked up this pie from the Farmer's Market yesterday for no reason other than it looked delicious. I knew between the six of us we'd come up with a reason to celebrate.

When I placed the pie (with a side of vanilla ice cream) on the table I asked our four children to take turns sharing what we could be celebrating.

The things they came up with were eye opening. Little achievements and milestones from the week that I didn't realize mattered to them the way they did.

It was so good to see them light up at the sound of each other's joy.

Take Action:
1. Big or small, think of what you could be celebrating this week. 
2. Ask someone else what they're celebrating.

Coupons still exist, friends! I’m not a die-hard couponer (though I so respect those who are!) but if I happen across one I know I’ll use you bet I’m going to clip it! Today it was a toffee nut latte for $1.50 😎 #bargainhunter #treatyoself

And after everything you have been through
it is worth it to take the path filled with Light.
It is worth it to trust that joy is awaiting you tomorrow,
no matter what yesterday looked like. -MHN

I Teach, What’s Your Superpower?

As another year gets underway, I reflect as a teacher.

Soapbox moment: All school personnel jump through hoops brought on by society, government, parents, kids, and school boards. Kids come to us from a multitude of backgrounds, experiences, health, and we as a school have bring out the best in each child. We have to nurture, educate, feed, respect, and accommodate each unique child along with meeting federal, state, and local standards, adhere to education laws, be involved in the community, create relationships with parents and co-workers and take care of our own selves and families. Yes, some of us get “summers off,” but let’s be honest, most of us are doing professional development, creating new curriculum, learning new skills, working on our own education while packing in a full year’s work in 9 - 10 months. We sign up for this. We know the expectations. We do this because we know it’s up to help children and adolescents blossom. It’s up to us to open the doors to their bright futures.

No we are not martyrs. We do get paid. We do get frustrated and make mistakes (I mean we are human). We also bring that home with us. We cry and yell when we feel stuck and when we celebrate our students’ victories. We are invested in their successes and stay late, give up prep time, come in early,and implement new teaching methods and psychology. The hardest part about all of this is the disrespect we get from society about our profession. I always advise, until you’ve walked in my shoes (usually a 2 inch heel for 9 - 10 hours), then you don’t know.
But regardless of all that, I go back year after year because I get a bit giddy about teaching. I am called by God to do this. He knows that students need a positive influence and someone to believe in them. He pushes me everyday to reach out and show these kids that someone cares about them and their future. The kids keep me young and make me laugh every day. They forgive and encourage me and teach me new dance moves. My goal is to positively influence my students so that they are a better person after having been in my class.

I Teach, What’s Your Superpower?

As another year gets underway, I reflect as a teacher.

Soapbox moment: All school personnel jump through hoops brought on by society, government, parents, kids, and school boards. Kids come to us from a multitude of backgrounds, experiences, health, and we as a school have bring out the best in each child. We have to nurture, educate, feed, respect, and accommodate each unique child along with meeting federal, state, and local standards, adhere to education laws, be involved in the community, create relationships with parents and co-workers and take care of our own selves and families. Yes, some of us get “summers off,” but let’s be honest, most of us are doing professional development, creating new curriculum, learning new skills, working on our own education while packing in a full year’s work in 9 - 10 months. We sign up for this. We know the expectations. We do this because we know it’s up to help children and adolescents blossom. It’s up to us to open the doors to their bright futures.

No we are not martyrs. We do get paid. We do get frustrated and make mistakes (I mean we are human). We also bring that home with us. We cry and yell when we feel stuck and when we celebrate our students’ victories. We are invested in their successes and stay late, give up prep time, come in early,and implement new teaching methods and psychology. The hardest part about all of this is the disrespect we get from society about our profession. I always advise, until you’ve walked in my shoes (usually a 2 inch heel for 9 - 10 hours), then you don’t know.
But regardless of all that, I go back year after year because I get a bit giddy about teaching. I am called by God to do this. He knows that students need a positive influence and someone to believe in them. He pushes me everyday to reach out and show these kids that someone cares about them and their future. The kids keep me young and make me laugh every day. They forgive and encourage me and teach me new dance moves. My goal is to positively influence my students so that they are a better person after having been in my class.

CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE. My grandfather let me play with his 35mm camera when I was undoubtedly far too small to be trusted with such a valuable thing, showing me how to focus it, push the shutter...and see things from a totally different angle. This is a man who would take a picture of a flag flying from the bottom up—he would literally lie down on the ground and aim the lens upward to get the view we don’t normally see (or notice if we do).
.
I thought of him when I took this picture at the museum last weekend. I didn’t lie down on the pavement, but this is pretty close, and you can see things you might not see if you forget to look up rather than straight ahead.
.
What can you do to see your world differently? Even if it’s just a tiny shift, it’s worth seeing what’s out there in a different way.

This health journey I began 3 years ago might have started with the goal to drop some pounds but it’s this journey that has given me the courage to go through 3 of the most challenging years of my life.⠀
⠀
Divorce, coming out, finding my person, then losing my person just to name a few.⠀
⠀
Taking care of our health IMPACTS everything! You might see me post clips of my workouts but the stuff you don’t see if what has made me create who I am. It has given me the mental clarity and focus to believe in myself.⠀
⠀
The personal development, the freaking tribe of virtual JoyGym girls that ALWAYS have each other’s back, the fuel to my body when I need it the most, the confidence that has been built through completing each program, and learning that I am not alone💜⠀
⠀
I know when life sucks that the last thing we want to do is workout, is to read positive shit, or is to make a healthy meal.. But if it makes you a better person to YOURSELF and those around you.. Don’t you think it’s selfish not to??⠀
⠀
Love yourself enough to know YOU are worth it💜 My next Virtual accountability group starts next week and we have a spot waiting for you! Application is in my bio! ⠀
⠀
Thank you everyone that has reached out to support me, it is truly truly appreciated!!

A little bit of a candid moment...

I think a lot of us take moments for granted. This one is such a small moment in time but this was one of the happiest moments. After hours in a car with just us talking and music I fell more in love. I always hear how road trips can kill a couple but this one was the best. We are in no way a perfect couple and we have our fights and family issues but I’m so happy he’s my #1 supporter and I am his. We are always there to support each other and be each other’s best friend. I can’t wait to marry this man ❤️

We finally went to the alpaca ranch today, and I don’t know what took us so freaking long! Gorgeous backdrop, tame animals, free to walk through - and only $3 for a bag of grain! The boys had such a blast 🥰🦙

Summer’s almost over. Anybody else wondering if we crammed in enough? It’s hitting me today. Were there enough giggles, adventures, spontaneous ice cream, slumber parties, hugs, dancing, play dates and the coloring! Have we ever done more coloring?! Don’t even get me started on slime. Will you be coffee cup cheersing or slow weeping... or maybe, like me, a bit of both in a couple weeks? Leave me an emoji answer that sums up these last few days of endless summer as we look towards school 😭 ☕️

See ya later work! Time to celebrate the next chapter 🎉 
There is so much joy and excitement ahead. I am grateful for the four years and opportunities Fiserv has given me, However at this point in our families life, we have decided the next step is for me to take time away from work.

This is a great thing and should not be viewed as a bad thing. I am grateful for a partner and husband who understands the true meaning of life and is on the same page as me. I believe life is meant to be lived, and we are here for a purpose. 
We need to spend more time chasing our joy, pursuing our purposes, spending time remembering we are human beings. 
Self reflection should be considered whenever making a life choice. This has always come easy to me, when faced with a life decision I think will I be happy about this choice / risk when I am 80. If I know I will be happier taking the risk, I take the risk. If I know I will have regrets from not trying, I LEAP full force ahead into the great unknown, with the only certainty of chasing joy. 
Here's to us, to family, to joy, and to living life on purpose 
Thanks for the party to my co workers, and to the great friendships I have created over the years, I look forward to see you with more purposeful visits filled with light and happiness (and maybe a drink in hand 🤣) #becourageous #seekjoy #iquit #familywins

Hello lovely followers of this page. I took a bit of a hiatus from posting to get caught up on editing and enjoy the last bits of summer with my kiddos. As we are about to launch into family holiday photo season I just wanted to pop on here and say thank you for all your support over the years and I cannot wait to shoot with you this fall. I am currently booking late September-November. Weekend dates fill up quickly so be sure to snag one that works for you. I’m working through my last recent sessions and also revamping my website, branding, and pricing. Cheers to transition and growth! Thanks for following along 💖 Photo taken by my husband, Andy, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower (one of my faves). .

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

There are so many different names that people have. But, the name that is above all names is JESUS. There truly is no one like Him.

The name of Jesus alone is full of power. So, the next time you are struggling just say the name of Jesus. Share with Him what is weighing on your heart. You will experience His peace wash over you.

Last night we go to get fancy and have a celebration dinner. Tonight after a full day of training, we got to do our own thing.
.
Y’all. A gang of my tribe got together for dinner and drinks and...I seriously cannot remember the last time I laughed so hard. I literally lost my voice.
.
I’ve spent two years feeling “stuck” in life. Struggling for unattainable balance. Never feeling good enough as a leader, a mother, a wife or a woman because of all the expectations I’ve put on myself.
.
Tonight was so needed. I’m so thankful to have landed amongst a tribe of men and women who listen, care and see/accept one another.
.
This is not what I imagined when I said yes to oils and a diffuser. It’s so much more.

SEEK JOY // I know you hear that a lot these days, but for good reason! What do you love? What brings you true, authentic joy? Do more of that shizz. I mean, clearly these two love jumping off of chairs. When’s the last time you did that?

SEEK JOY // I know you hear that a lot these days, but for good reason! What do you love? What brings you true, authentic joy? Do more of that shizz. I mean, clearly these two love jumping off of chairs. When’s the last time you did that?

It’s a good day for slushes and 50¢ corn dogs! {Henry picked his apart, ate the meat, and then ate the bread as an afterthought. Heathen.}

A periodic reminder for myself and anyone else who needs it. Do your best to fill your life with intention and purpose. Make time for the things that fill you with joy. Stop and smell the flowers. Make a list of things you’re grateful for. Linger over your morning coffee. Call your family. Reward yourself for the small successes as well as the big ones. Work hard, but play hard too. And please try to remember that you are enough. 🌻 #gratitude #selfcare #bekind #seekjoy #lifemovesprettyfast
