Oh how I love my beautiful wife! ๐Ÿ˜ This week has been something out of a dream, I couldn't have imagined everything going as smoothly as it did. We only have 3 days left in paradise, but this has been the perfect reset button for both of us. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ #sorryforrambling #justwokeup #sohungry #breakfasttime

Nikon vs. Canon! Had a little standoff with @spencer_sherwin on the last day in #honduras. Now I'm at work reminiscing of the past two weeks and it's been encouraging to hear the responses from everyone. It's true that there is always a need for compassion even close to home, reaching out and helping those local to you.. but I find that stepping out of the defined borders of a country and seeing the world with new eyes, and realizing that there are in fact people with "less".. but come to find out they've had it right all along; time is the most valuable gift we have.. I've learned so much from my trips abroad, and experienced first hand what it's like to see true and genuine happiness. The gratitude that the Honduran people returned back to us was beyond words.. I won't be able to adequately explain the impact it had on me.. you just had to have been there ๐Ÿค“ #lifelessons #sorryforrambling

I am so overwhelmed by your support and truly just so grateful my Tippies are liked. I have a bit of a confession to make though, I couldn't have so many Tippies made and so frequently these last few weeks if it weren't for my pretty amazing other half who has been my secret helper. Yep he works nights, harder then any one l know and yet is 100% supportive. I have been determined to have as many Tinies available as possible as l hate to disappoint any of you when they sell out, and without his help and staying up way past my bed time there is no way l could do it on my own. In saying that l will be away for a few weeks late August for a refresh and regroup so will put in as much as l can to keep my store restocked until then. Thank you 100x's over, you guys are pretty amazing xx #littlemisstippytoes #sorryforrambling

Hey friends ๐Ÿ‘‹ Thought I'd pop in and let everyone know that I'm still alive and well ๐Ÿ˜‹ We've been staying at my mom's house for the past 2 weeks while we work on some renovation projects in our "new" 70 year old home. It's an exciting time but also extremely stressful. Between our budget, 3 active kids, temporary living spaces, pregnancy symptoms, bouts of anxiety, prepping for school, etc, I'm reminding myself that everything will fall into place and I will survive this awkward time ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ’™ #ithink #randompicture #sorryforrambling

Happy Monday! Loving decorating our new space ๐Ÿ’— just wanted to say a word about the whole Instagram algorithm change...I totally get what a bummer this potential change is (even though I don't know exactly what/when this will all happen) especially for those of us who adore this community & the friends in it who are truly a special part of our lives, & especially shops & women who make a living through it! We've all seen lots of people we follow posting "turn on notifications" & lots of people telling you not to. I personally have all notifications turned off on my phone because it totally distracts me & feeds my addiction to social media, constant checking of my phone, & missing out of the here & now. Welcoming a new baby soon, I want to be all the more "here" for my husband & baby son, focused on loving them & not on my phone constantly buzzing. But whether you turn on notifications for a few favorite IG-ers, don't, or turn them on for everybody - I hope we can keep our sweet community here! The blog & IG community is so important to me & I love sharing my life & heart here, with the purpose of inspiring someone with my story & life & to know how much the Lord loves them! I want to be more proactive to heart, like, follow, check in on people, comment, & really use this to build real community. After all, my husband and I literally MET on Instagram ;) God has used IG & the blog world in my life in immense ways - to meet my husband & his precious family, build so many true friendships, share my writing & books, & have a home business & ministry over the years that's been one of the sweetest things in my whole life. Anyway, just want to say I love y'all who are in my community, & let's keep loving each other, supporting one another as women while keeping our focus on Him first & the people right in front of our faces ๐Ÿ˜˜ #sorryforrambling #loveya

As I get back into golf after about a two year hiatus I think about what this game has meant to me and what it has taught and continues to teach me. I think back to the highs, good rounds, making it to state, playing well in a college tournament or any other round. However, I also think of the lows, throwing/breaking clubs, swearing, anger, frustration all stemming from not meeting the unhealthy expectations I have set for myself, that's why a couple years ago I walked away from the game I used to love so much. Now as I get back into it, my game is rough but I'm just happy that I'm able to get back into it. It has taught me yet another lesson to be grateful and to be patient. In life, like in golf, not every shot will finish where you expected, you may end up in the rough, just have faith that you'll get out of it, hey you may even hole out. #golf #sorryforrambling #svccardinals

Today for the first time in too long, I woke up genuinely happy. Seriously, I hopped out of bed and felt like I was ready to conquer the world, which is so out of character for my zombie-like self. Maybe it's because my nephew was the one to run into my room and wake me up this morning, or maybe it's because I finally feel like I'm on the right path to finding meaning and direction for my life. Whatever the reason actually is, I'm grateful. I'm grateful for every breath that I take and every day that I get to see the sun above me regardless of what is happening in my life. Every moment is so precious and I'm finally starting to realize that. This rainbow appeared after ten minutes of sitting in the pouring rain at my brother's baseball game. It was vivid, it was full, it was beautiful, it was bright and full of light. I was soaked on a cold metal bleacher just waiting to stop getting pelted with these huge raindrops, but somehow didn't even mind. โ€ขI feel that through this moment God was saying: "Hey Liz, sometimes you've got to sit through the rain for a little bit, but there will always be light and beauty to follow."โ€ข Thanks, God. I needed that. #sorryforrambling #itsthelittlethings #mentalhealthmoment

I didn't get to say goodbye sissy ๐Ÿ˜ชbut I know I'll be seeing you on TV. You have been such a blessing and a positive force to me and many of my dance sisters & bros. And no matter how sad I am that you're at another state, I know that you are out there doing what God intended you to do in this world and especially in the dance industry. No matter how famous you are and will become, I know you'll be the same humble, sweet, and hardworking person. Just by knowing you, you have taught me to always be kind to others and that no matter how hard life is, GOD will always be there to uplift me as long as I do everything with Godly intentions.
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH โค๏ธ and I hope that God tells you whenever I'm praying and thinking about you๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ #sorryforrambling

Took the Personal strength session outdoors here where I did all of my hard core training in my hey days โœŠ๐Ÿฝ I love this spot. I don't linger in the past and I rarely move ahead of myself to the future. Here and now is all we got โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’™ -------------------------------------------------- Found an old email with training stats sent to my coach. 7 years ago now from mile repeats done here. Swipe Left and check it out ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Mile repeats on One minute rest. Wow!
Those days when I trained by heart rate. Funny I have forgotten how zippy my mile reps used to be.
If I was to linger there where I used to be I would have stopped a while ago. Accept Life. Slowing down. Aging. Nature. Summer in Fall. Winter in Spring. All of it. And surrender ๐Ÿ™

Yes, I confess. I'm guilty as charged.
I tend to purchase the majority of my books from the U.K. Is it because the price is marginally better? Nope, I wish. If I'm being completely honest the cover designs are just that much better.
Also Gary D Schmidt I've never been stabbed in the heart but after reading Orbiting Jupiter I now possess a vague idea of how it would feel like. Inevitable sobbing and endless tears, the melodies that inhabited my house this afternoon. Somehow it's Middle School Books that always get to me, anyways kudos Gary. On a SideNote: Thank you EE, this eclectic necklace has become my favorite. #sorryforrambling

I'm a romantic. No, that doesn't mean I elegantly lay out a path of rose petals for someone I'm interested in.

No, I don't live in a fairy tale mindset either.

Beauty. Truth. Love.
Those are the things I appreciate.
While I don't always see grass as beautiful, I can appreciate the beauty of it's creation and growth. I can see beauty in the leaves, the flowers, the birds, the people, the mischievous eyes of John Wayne, and in the storm.
It hasn't always been easy for me to appreciate these things. It takes practice. But once you start seeking out the beauty in things, the world becomes a much better place.
Distractions like tv, music, florescent lights, business, and other white noises can sometimes create a mental block for us. Sometimes they prevent us from being able to appreciate all that is good around us.

So, take an hour of your day. Disconnect. Breathe and appreciate. Look for the beauty.

People don't often talk (or write) about friendship. Songs are always about romantic love, sex & dating & yet how many truths about dating could be applied to every other relationship that we have? + aren't the best relationships or marriages often born out of mutual respect & friendship rather than lust & attraction alone? Why do we so often draw a huge divide between friendship / dating when communication skills, maturity, trust & boundaries is important in ANY relationship?

I often wonder whether growing up, we should spend more time learning about all relationships rather than the focus always being about romance, fairy tales & the sexualisation of being a female or a male from the youngest of ages.

Millions of self-help books talk about the importance of who we surround ourselves with, who we receive advice from & the importance of the company that we keep. The bible is no different. The bible stresses the power of words & who we listen to. Often times we Become, like the people we surround ourselves with whether we like that or not. E.g if we surround ourselves with negative nellys, guess what the result will be?
Something I have noticed is this - After a certain age, romance becomes the focus for life. There is nothing completely wrong about this, however if we haven't learnt how to be treated & how to respect & cherish our friends, how can we move into a committed relationship beyond strong friendships that are timeless?

Something I feel so strongly about is this: Friendship should be seen as dating, it doesn't end until one or the other calls it quits & the two stop growing together. To thrive both sides must invest time & effort. If one stops wooing, calling, remembering or loses respect, the relationship breaks down.

In romantic movies, this would be a big turn off.
Often our friends are the people we first formulate relationships & experiences with. We grow & learn together like unbiological siblings. If we can't love + cherish our friends what hope do have in dating, marriage + beyond? Struggling with dating? A committed relationship is just a friendship that caught fire.

Another one from our race. ๐Ÿ“ธ @links_dude Probably won't be this green for a long time. But on the bright side, ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ make room for baby ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ? #htc2017 thinking of all you Oregonians living with raining ash and red suns. Having hiked the 50 miles from Timberline to the Columbia river gorge via Eagle Creek trail, my thoughts are with those ferns and those fire fighters, and it bums me out I don't get to share the unforgettable and unparalleled beauty with my kiddos any time soon. And then there's Harvey, Irma, Jose and DACA. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ#sorryforrambling #hopenoonereadsthelongcaptions

I debated if I was going to share this or not but I can't help feeling like maybe...just maybe it would encourage another mother out there. You see, something most people may not know about me is that I suffer from a very deeply rooted plague of self-doubt. I know it's not from God....I know it's a lie...and I know what God says about me. My biggest self doubt of all is my role as mother. I think perhaps I'm not alone in that. I often feel I have failed as a mother...first to our older boys and now to our younger two. My heart longed for these words to be spoken by my children (because good, bad and ugly, I really am doing the best I know how to do) but truly believed they would never come. I think sometimes we forget that the "love" chapter ( 1 Corinthians 13) so often quoted in weddings is actually talking about the love between us all and not just between husband and wife. I love my family unconditionally....so why do I allow myself to entertain the lie? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ I guess the answer is that I am only human. But I wholeheartedly and unashamedly love the Lord, and my children and their families. And because HE loves me beyond comprehension, He does these wonderful things that show me the truth of who I am as a mother. I think we as mothers need to remember that there is no "perfect" mom, or perfect way of mothering, and that we don't have to be perfect or never make mistakes or never let our kids down or or or....we just need to do the best we know how to do and trust Jesus with the rest...well trust Him with it all really. #rambling #sorryforrambling #motherhood #wouldnttradeitfortheworld #hopeimmakingsense

As I am pouring my heart out to God this morning ... praying for so many hurting/ worried/ anxious/ scared/ broken-hearted people...I notice this flower on my daughters deck. It is strangely beautiful. The only flower left on this plant. That flower is flawed and broken, but still hanging on and still sharing it's beauty with the people around it. God uses broken-hearted people.... he uses us if we allow Him to. God is great. Life is not so great sometimes, but keep fighting and let God use your/my brokenness for His glory. Praying for my sweet Livingston family right now. I have so much love for each of you. โค๏ธ #sorryforrambling#Ephesians 3:20-21#Luke 18:27#Psalm 46:1-2#Isaiah30:18#Psalm147:3,5

- Drowning tbh I'm a lot of ways I thought it would be different I thought it would be better but it's not it just stays the same and it's 3am and I can't sleep because my mind is in a million different places at once and I can physically feel the pressure weighing on me I ramble when I'm sad or upset I write till all the fear has gone and all the worries have settled till next time when it happens all again .-. Life is hard honestly thought it would be easier than this but we keep fighting and fighting hoping and praying tomorrows better and when it's not we do it all over again... keep fighting #sorryforrambling #mybrainsamess
