When your coworkers are the flipping best thanks @_kbaldwin for the birthday love!

Happy wedding anniversary to us! Little did we know what life would throw at us just a few months later. But we persevered and became stronger because of it. I'm thankful for your love, your sweet devotion, and your unwavering patience with me. Thanks for pushing me when I need it, because let's be honest I'm as stubborn as they come. And thanks for keeping me laughing through it all with your innate sense of humor. You were the man I prayed for, but I didn't think you'd be so much more than what I could have ever imagined. I'm glad you are. After almost 12 years together, I think we still make a pretty awesome team. Here's to another year of shenanigans with you. I can't wait to see what life has for us next 😘

P.S. Happy belated birthday, sug. (Even though I told you in person, it wasn't social media official 😉)

Miss you, Mexico City 🇲🇽

The ancient. The religious. The modern. Mexico City, you were full of surprises.

This sweet baby has not left my side since getting home. We missed you too, Kona 😘#adventureswithkona #snuggles

Mexico City, you were so good to us. We'll miss your stunning views, the history and the delicious food you had to offer. We'll be back soon ✌🏼🇲🇽

Yesterday I climbed to the top of La Pirámide del Sol in Teotihuacán.
I couldn't have imagined being able to make up those 248 steps a year ago. The amount of pain my body and joints were in didn't allow me to walk up the fight of stairs at home, how could I do this?
Half way up I wanted to give up. "I made it far enough," "this is as much as I can do," "this is as far as I can go," I kept thinking to myself.
You will doubt yourself, you will not feel worthy, you will want to give up. So. Many. Times.
But going through those difficult times, you will find those few, beautiful souls who will push you, encourage you, love you through the worst times, who will make you see how much you're worth and show you just how much you can do. You are not alone in your journey, be it your healing journey or in life.
I cannot let this disease define who I am, nor can I let it limit what I can do.
I am not Rheumatoid Arthritis.
I am a fighter. I am a lover. I am a warrior. I am more than this disease. I am a force to be reckoned with - I just have to remember that.
I climbed those 248, very steep, steps yesterday. I did that.

To this day, this continues to be one of my favorite artifacts. It was a thrill to see it in person.

Starting off another day of sight seeing. But first, breakfast 🍳🤤#chilaquiles #frijolesnegros #tocino

Mexico City 🇲🇽 Day one in the books

Here we go ✌🏼out Texas. Hello, Mexico City 🇲🇽

Happy Mother's Day to this incredible woman. Thank you for the sacrifices you've made for me, for loving me unconditionally, for putting me in my place when I need it. You are the driving force behind ALL of my successes, Mom. I wouldn't be the woman I am without your example to follow. Te amo más que todas las estrellas en el universo. 😘
