This sixty year old soapstone sink was one of the things I fell in love with while looking at our home. I canโ€™t say I quite imagined Iโ€™d one day be bathing my child in it because he just had a blowout all the way up his back almost into his hairline because he was bouncing in the jumperoo while he pooped.... but it is serving its purpose well and I love it just the same.

Runs on party pizzas, cereal, and chocolate milk. Heโ€™s 12 going on 82. Hates having his picture taken.

FRIENDS! We are now the @modernfarmhousefamily and we couldnโ€™t be more excited! This is our growing family๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป. Tim, Sarah, Jude (5), Hudson (4), Chase (2) and Crew (7m). We are just finishing building our dream Modern Farmhouse and it has been a long labor of love โ€” I canโ€™t wait to start sharing it with you. About us: >Tim is all around handy and the best friend you wish you always had/happiest guy ever. He also loves to pop on my insta stories with me and keeps life light hearted. >Me- I love being a mom. Period. Iโ€™m also an RN. I Love to bake, especially dessert and then eat it. But I totally dislike chocolate (and coffee and tea for that matter)! This house has been a Pinterest dream for me and Iโ€™ve done hours of research on each piece. Photography is my other fave hobby and I love learning more. >Jude is totally extroverted and possibly talks more than me ๐Ÿ˜‚. He is super compassionate, loving, a caretaker and definitely a rule follower and first born. >Hudson is our brave one. Like really brave like daddy. It makes me nervous but I also love seeing that spirit in him. Heโ€™s fairly sensitive and doesnโ€™t like to do much without his sidekick Jude. >Chase is so outgoing. Until he meets you ๐Ÿ˜‚. Then heโ€™s not. But his smile is pretty melting and once he warms up his laugh is contagious. He loves his brothers and could drink a gallon of milk a day if I let him.
>Crew is all full of joy. Huge smiles and giggles and kicks type of joy. Adored by all and rolling everywhere. We all love him so much!

There are days my little princess just canโ€™t be put down.
.
Today was a good day, so I had to capture it. She actually had a big smile while babbling away and jumping in her jumper. And she also had a good time in the playpen!
.
So, slowly we are trying to put her in the playpen even when she cries and let her compose herself before getting her out. Itโ€™s kinda working but we still have a little more to go.
.
Still a Yay moment! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

.. the world accommodates you for fitting in but only rewards you for standing out ..

Itโ€™s Friday. You made it. Through a week that was amazing? Hard? Stressful? Exhausting? All of the above? Same. Sometimes itโ€™s just nice to remember that weโ€™re in it together. Happy Friday! #FriYAY

There is so much invalid guilt that comes with being a mama. I live in a state of โ€œIโ€™m not doing enough, making nutritious enough food, spending enough one-on-one time, reading enough, teaching enough, singing enough songs, going to enough library classes,โ€ and on and on. Being a perfectionist pushes you to succeed in many aspects of life, but not motherhood. Being a perfectionist and being a mama are like oil and vinegar and I have to remind myself of this almost on a daily basis. I know I will never feel like I am a perfect mama, and I have consciously practice being gentle to myself. My boys are so happy and so well loved and so well cared for. For them, I am enough of a good mama. Not a perfect one, but enough. And if you are feeling any of these feelings, you need to know that you are enough too. Remind yourself of this when you are feeling just a little less than. You ARE enough. ๐Ÿ–ค

They say the days are long but the years go fast. Two years into this whole momming thing I can say it is so true โค๏ธ
โ€ข
After over a year staying at home I felt like my days were still so foggy and haphazard. I loved being a mom but yearned to feel driven and focused again.
โ€ข
So I started...
โ€ข
โœจTaking inventory of my time through the day. This has lead me to be so much more intentional through the day to day menial tasks. PLUS it has helped me become a more present and intentional mama to Clara ๐Ÿ’—
โœจTaking time for personal development and self care. These are so important but often put on the back burner for you busy mamas! Working in little chunks of time for self care and personal development could look like devotionals in the AM, audio books in the car, or mini workouts through the day ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ- implementing this can be so renewing for your mind ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ
โœจSurrounding myself with positive and uplifting people! Through play dates during the week, couple dates in the evenings, life group through our church and this amazing team through this hair business. All of these result in a positive and uplifting community that is so encouraging ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Isolation isnโ€™t good for anybody!
โ€ข
Iโ€™m still on this journey and would love for you to join me! If any of this resonates with you I would love to chat! Whether it be business related or not please reach out to me! I look forward to hearing from you ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

โ€ข C O N T R O L โ€ข Motherhood took this away from me. Itโ€™s such a mind-fuck - you become a mother and you are suddenly in control of another humanโ€™s life...just not your own. I was in control of when he ate, what he ate, how much he ate, when he slept (or didnโ€™t sleep FML), who would care for him when I went back to work, what to do when he was sick or teething or just being a douchebag, what he wore and did and learned, how to teach him life skills like greeting another human, regulating big big BIG emotions, and wiping his ass with precision. In this, I lost all control over my own time, my own needs, and what felt like my own thoughts. 11 weeks ago, I made an intentional choice to regain control over my life. Itโ€™s incredible how bumping myself up to the top of my 47 page to-do list has changed SO MUCH in such a short amount of time. I chose to put myself first. Before my child, before my family, before my friends, before the 39 loads of laundry waiting to be folded, before my job and my business. Iโ€™m starting to feel more like โ€œmyselfโ€ again. Iโ€™m starting to feel more comfortable and confident, and proud of the choices Iโ€™m making for MYSELF. Iโ€™m prioritizing what I need for the first time in a long time - 3 years at the minimum. Itโ€™s not always easy (fuck that, itโ€™s mostly hard mostly all the time) but Iโ€™m ok with that. Iโ€™ve finally chosen to put my needs first by doing 3 simple things: getting up before my family (between 6am and 6:30am), exercising for 30 minutes 5-6 times per week, and making better choices with respect to food. This sounds like a lot, and it certainly felt like a lot the first few weeks...but thereโ€™s something about taking back control of my life that keeps me going ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ โ€ข

Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.
