“Hey, Google. Set volume to 27% . . . Perfect.”

I love this image from our first anniversary trip. We probably “shouldn’t have” spent the money on a vacation at this point in our young married life, but I would do it all over again and again. Celebrating our first year of marriage with a tropical escape was so refreshing.
-
Honestly, it felt just like a second honeymoon and it got us thinking - why do you only get one honeymoon? Why would you celebrate your most treasured earthly relationship just once?
-
No thank you. Jordan and I decided that we are going to celebrate our marriage every year with an annual honeymoon. I’m sure that as the years go by and our family grows it won’t be so easy, but we think it is well worth whatever the cost. We’ll be celebrating our fourth anniversary somewhere along this very beach and it can’t come soon enough.

I’m thinking you might want to have a talk with bae about your annual honeymoon? If you’re not sure where to go, how much to spend, or how to even start planning I’d love to give you some guidance. Click ‘Start Planning Your Trip Here’ at the link in my bio - the consultation is totally complimentary! #honeymoon #anniversary #engaged

We’ve had an incredible weekend! Productive and relaxing all at the same time! This girl is starting to walk EVERYWHERE! She took her first step back at 7 months old but as of this weekend she’s really just letting go over everything and wanting to walk everywhere! Watching a baby grow is the absolute coolest! They learn so much in this first year it’s just crazy! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!

Congratulations to Alden & Jessica 😍 last night was cold, and beautiful, and crazy. #takingonStJohn

What if what you went through wasn’t meant to destroy you, but to develop you?⁣
⁣ 🙌⁣

Over the past two years, I chose self-care when it was physically + emotionally + mentally difficult. ⁣

Today, I couldn’t help but be grateful that I didnt say no to self-care and choose self-sabotage instead. ⁣

Girl. ⁣

I’m here for you. ⁣

I’m a miscarriage mama who just needed a positive outlet to help me cope. ⁣

I’m a busy wife who wants to be her best for her hubby. ⁣

I’m just a normal person who has obstacles but doesn’t want to use them as excuses.⁣

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, I have five more spots for my FAVORITE THINGS GIVEAWAY CHALLENGE. 🎁 ⁣

Every day for 14 days, I give away gifts for those who workout and eat healthy. ⁣

It’s a fun way to end the year and start before January! Get more info 🎉 LINK IN BIO or commenting below! 😘👊⁣

Today’s responsorial Psalm at Mass was, “You are my inheritance, oh Lord.” And it got me thinking: What if we put as much planning, effort, and care into our eternity in Heaven as we do our retirement?

Investing decades ahead of time, sacrificing immediate comforts in order to live well in the future, consulting an expert to make sure we’re doing all we can, spending time researching the options so we feel confident we’re making the best choices...

My vocation as a wife and mother is far from easy and rarely comfortable - but when I look at these amazing humans that God has destined for me to live this life on earth with, I know that the effort and love I invest in them is the labor by which my soul will find its way home.

Health is really the B E S T gift that you can give to yourself ✨🎄🎁⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This health journey is so much more to me than just losing weight. I’ve GAINED such a brighter outlook on my future. I have so much more energy, I have a completely different mindset towards how I view myself & I just feel GOOD!!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’ve learned that no one can make YOU feel good about yourself — only YOU are in control of your self image, those thoughts and that mindset. If you knew you could have the tools to change and make that mindset shift, would you do it!? Would you take the first step? I finally made the investment in ME this May and there’s no looking back. 🙌🏼⁣⁣
⁣⁣
There really is no price tag to being healthy and feeling GOOD about a picture of you for pretty much the first time, EVER. 🙏🏼😭⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’m opening up a few spots to help some additional women finish out 2018 strong! You mighttt get a free holiday gift bag from me for joining our team before the end of the month! 😉 Send me a DM or fill out the google form link in my bio to send me more info! 💙⁣

We snuck away for the weekend to one of our favorite places in the Fingerlakes. Wine tasting, exploring, hallmark movies by the fireplace. Just enough time to have a reset before the craziness of the holidays begins.
.
P.s. came home and totally started to put up our tree and decorate for Christmas.🎄🎄 Anyone else start decorating yet?!

5 days away from @tonto_pancho & the thought of a hug from him has me full of butterflies. ready to be home with my people but thankful for time away cause marriage is HARD, y’all & time to REALLY miss each other is a wonderful gift 💕

Let's start preparing for Thanksgiving week... What are you thankful for? Tell your spouse! #FallinLoveTMM #themarriagementality

O N E Y E A R 💫 || Crazy to think that it’s been a year since we got to say “Always” to each other. So thankful for this man and everything he does. Looking through our wedding photos and all I can think is “and I thought I loved you then.”💕 Here’s to forever babe, I love you!❤️ .

Well, I knew it would happen. That I would miss a day of saying what I was thankful for. But for good reason! Yesterday we celebrated 11 years of marriage. It was not an exciting day, but it seemed to roll relentlessly forward, from needing to fix the hose clamp on the truck, a quick lunch to Panera, a trip to Lowe's for stuff for the bathroom, to Saturday night service at church. Last year at this time we were in Iceland... amazing, incredible Iceland. And we normally try to get away for our anniversary, even if it's not Iceland. It didn't work out this year, and I would be faking if I said I wasn't a little disappointed (it's hard to settle after setting the bar so high... I mean, Iceland...). But something I was NOT disappointed about was what we were celebrating to begin with. I'm so thankful to be spending my life with someone who knows me so well, who is so forgiving of my very many flaws. Not sure I could find someone else quite so tolerant of my neverending crazy 😜. Here's to the next 11 years. -

Realized today that Otto has been in our family for 3 weeks and we haven’t taken one photo as a family of 6. So after an amazing service at church listening to people give their testimonies of what they were thankful for this year (😭) I corralled all my people in the driveway for a pic because aside from Jesus who loves me and gave his life for me...there is nothing I am more thankful for than them. And at first I saw this pic and almost deleted it. Then I got teary eyed and realized how perfect it is. This is our crazy, weird, amazing family. #shellenbergerpartyof6 #mypeople #thankful #blessed #sunday #thisisboise #honestlyparents #godblessmyhusband #beating50percent

We got a break. 🙌🏻 From our kids, from the bills, from the world. A much needed break, a weekend of relaxation and reconnection. ✨ this is vital to our marriage. We got resuscitated a little bit this weekend. Brought back to life by spending real quality time with each other away from distractions. ✨ What i learned about Matthew is how much honest childlike joy exudes from him when we’re in nature. What i learned about myself is how much sleep i really needed and how i miss drawing, which i got to do a little bit of. ✨ until next time, here’s hoping we can stay alive in the chaos and reality that awaits us ✌🏻 .

SO thankful for this quick weekend getaway full of bizarrely great weather, and quality time with my best boys & besties! (+ our photobombing honorary dog 😉😂)
My heart is refreshed 💙
