Be M I N D F U L 👙
.
As summer approaches and the bathing suits come out, I had to write about being MINDFUL
.
This is really for anyone, parent, aunt, uncle, sister, brother ~ anyone that has little eyes gazing up to us as a reflection of being their world, their light, and most importantly their example❗(even if you don't, do it for yourself! It's as equally important for the little men in our lives too not just our girls!)
.
My girls 👧👧 and I went bathing suit 👙 shopping yesterday, for an impromptu trip to the local pool (too cold for ours yet!) Or let me rephrase they went shopping, mine was a no joke 10 min stop wondering "they have drive up grocery pick up, I wonder if you can order a bathingsuit just as quick" Anyhow, grabbed the first one, placed it on, and glimpsed in the mirror. Not at myself but at my 2 little girls, both sitting on the changing room bench in my dressing room, not saying a word, just watching 👀
.
For the first time I saw them truly watching, watching to see if I was going to adore ME in my my new suit as much as they did. With big smiles they insync said "yes mommy, we love it"
.
That was a moment......I knew, regardless of how much I wasn't a fan or how I felt getting into a suit at that moment, wanting to take a deep sigh ~ instead I WAS MINDFUL 🧘🏼‍♂️❤️ and a smile back saying "I love it" when really to at that moment I was teaching them "I love me"
.
Cheers to being Mindful .
❤️MINDFUL of who's watching, my two little girls seeing nothing but love and admiration for their mommy standing in front of them, to them, their everything
.
❤️MINDFUL that measurements don't matter when your finding balance and doing your best each and everyday
.
❤️MINDFUL with not only words but my facial expressions choosen when we glimpse at ourselves....we're setting an example
.
❤️MINDFUL that they see a mommy who self loved herself so they know they too should LOVE themselves just as much inside and out
.
❤️MINDFUL that (although I adore fashion) clothes don't make the person it's the person who wears the clothes ALWAYS!!! .
Deep for a Sunday morning I know, but what great lessons they teach me everyday ❤️ Happy Mindful Sunday .

Tub, Tea and Tulips 🌷
.
Friday nights are also for mama
.
Its been a long week, physically and emotionally, SO, I picked myself up some tulips, and its relaxing time. Time for mixing up my @doterra LAVENDER to make my bath salts and suddenly everything is A-okay 🧘🏼‍♀️
.
Just a few drops 💧of this calming oil on the neck, feet, pillow or bath and a few deep breaths, let the busy week pass you by 🧘🏼‍♀️(again)
.
AND my kids 💜 the smell so much, we're actually planting lavender this weekend outside around the house (well, we're going to attempt)
.
Wishing a relaxing weekend to all

Pizza Night Impromptu 🍕
.
As a parent you can plan plan plan until the cows🐮 come home and 9/10 something will change. We adapt, go with the flow, keep smiling, keep trucking along and realize one day the house will be eareily quiet 😭
.
Soak it all in, the temper tantrums, the tired indecisive melt downs, the ups and down for water in a blue cup, green cup, pink cup dillema, one day we will miss it, one day!
.
Through it all I still enjoyed every bite of my cold homemade pizza with my girl @raisinghazel and our wee littles. We made veggie pizza, chicken club pizza, Cheese pizza and yes even nacho @doritos pizza crunched up (happy kids = happy family fun night!) .

Let's get ready to roll👩🏼‍🍳
.
It's pizza night in our house as it is in most! Very excited because the kids get creative!! .
I've mentioned before but my no fail never noticed trick to my pizza sauce is the addition of garlic hummus! YUP! KIds don't know and I don't tell them (my middle wouldn't mind but my others would not have it!)
.
I'll try and share some images tomorrow
.
Happy FriYAY!!!!! 🍕
