Post pool afternoon naps are the best.
Weston has been my best sleeper by far. But this is all of a sudden the only way he will fall asleep. I’m not complaining though. With as much as he is on the move I will take the snuggles, and he is out in less than 5 mins every time. He rubs my chest and looks up at me with those adoring eyes until his eyelids are just too heavy. I lay him down, but not before I take a few deep breaths and soak in what a gift it is to be his mama and to just get to slow down for a few moments. .

Serious question, friends. What is your favourite baby hack for beach days? Aka how do you contain them? Or are you one of those really patient humans who just chases them all day? I like to think I’m somewhere inbetween. Like I’ll chase you and play with you for like 80% of the afternoon but I need at least 20% to have a cocktail and sit my bum down. I’m leaning towards picking up the @summerinfant pop ‘n play so he is contained in a little play area and he can do his thing while mama takes a breather. Who has it? Who loves it? Who hates it? Alternatives? 🤷🏼‍♀️☀️

We’re BAAAACK! Our blog that is! The last 2 weeks with our T-shirt launch (those shirts are FLYING off the shelves!) we haven’t had a chance to update the blog, but this week we’re back and better than ever.
...
A friend and I were chatting the other day about something that’s happening with social media, and it’s been bothering us tremendously.
...
Here's what we’ve noticed....so many people on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook - they all want to tell you very similar things. "Love your body!", "Love yourself unconditionally!", and "Embrace who you are!"....
...
That's great and all, but rarely do you have someone who helps you with the next [but most IMPORTANT] step.
...
THE HOW!
...
Like HOW do I love myself? HOW do I move forward in life? HOW do I be consistent with my workout routine when my warm bed is calling my name in the morning? HOW HOW HOW?!
...
Have you noticed that, too?
...
Drives me nuts. Thanks for that inspirational mirror photo and all, but I need you to give me some ACTUAL steps athankyou.
...
With The Art of Bravery blog, we always wanted to be more than someone who yells "Be brave!" in your face. We want you to have the tools, the knowledge, and the steps to move forward in life.
...
That's why this week's article is titled "5 Ways to Know Yourself Better". There are prompts, quizzes, podcasts, and so many fun resources jam packed in this article. ...
But don't take our word! Check it out for yourself! Link is in our bio 🙌🏻 And when you're done, shoot me an email to let me know what suggestion you're most excited to dive into:) To being brave,
Christiana

I was blessed with the most kind and caring father and Eliana is lucky enough to have him as a grandfather. He is always making sure she has the best day ever. Today- according to Ellie- she had the “best day ever.”

If there is one thing I am constantly learning from my kids it is that I am my own worst critic. We all are our own right? We take millions of pictures to say I guess this one is “okay” to 1 single picture. Yet they constantly remind me how beautiful and perfect I am to them😭 I have this idea set in my head, which I believe many of us do that our pictures and how we portray ourselves needs to be “instagram worthy” but I am here to say you, me and the next babe are all worthy of these spaces and allowing our light to shine within them. Perfection doesn’t exist but we do and being able to uplift the other women in this space may mean more to them then you could ever imagine. Let yourself break free from the idea that you or your squares need to look a specific way because they need to look just like you. You are beautiful and you are so loved🖤



Sale is still going on use code: Summerlovin at checkout for 20% off this tee and all the others✨

Ok party people. Here are the two wigs I acquired when I was diagnosed last year. I no longer need them and want them to go to fellow #breasties in need. .
I wore the short reddish one to my brothers wedding and it looked fab. I never ended up wearing the longer layered dirty blond one but I know both would look great on someone in need.
.
Know someone in need already? Let me know! If not, I’ll probably hold a giveaway!

Someone is showing off how stinkin cute they are😍

I’ve been getting reminders about this all over the place lately. It’s been a tough go with Andrew working nearly 24/7 the last month and a bit and I really need to remember this. I am in absolute control of my happiness. Even when my kids are screaming, bored, or awake when all I need is sleep - I can be happy. I can enjoy every little piece of it. And so can you!

Awkwardly waving at Bob since 2016.
I will never be able to express my gratitude for the past 10 days. I invited ourselves to part of my parents’ summer road trip vacation and it was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.
Hundreds of pictures, thousands of memories, and a lot of laughs in the past ten days was just what the doctor ordered.
I cannot wait to share more of our adventure with you, and some of my favorite place that holds such a special place in my heart, even more so than I ever thought it could before this trip.

Best afternoon of fun! New pool and sand pit for the Rezzolini 😊 Zach had a check up with the dentist today and was as good as gold for it. He went on his way home to pick up his new "beach" as he calls it. We worry a lot about spoiling Zach&Marni and buying too many material things for them. But to watch them splash around together and squeal in delight, this was one gift worth giving them. Plus Zach said thank you over and over to us all afternoon. He said "Mommy thank you, I love it. I really love it. For Zach and for Marni. I love you Mamma and I love Papa." He's learning manners and to be thankful and Marni well, she would smile and hug you just for being you. Both are exhausted and sleeping and we are sharing one of our very occasional beers.🤗 Easing into our holiday mode finally 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 #zachandmarniontour #therezzolas

(click link in profile) Follow closely for more later session dates to be released.

Strength is Female🖤 Sale is still on until 8pm PST tonight, get this shirt and many more✌🏼code: Summerlovin at checkout!

Someone is in love with henna.

🦊 My spirit animal 🦊 If I could be anything, I’d be her. She’s made me a better person, for sure. But it will never be as effortless as it is for her. Naturally she’s a free spirit. She’s wild. She’s sweet and fierce at the same time. And she doesn’t give AF. In the nicest, best way possible. Now our job is to make sure that never changes- that no one takes that away from her. And I’d say we’re up for the challenge @jpmatkovic 😎#letthembekids #keepthemwild .
