Danielle Smith  Reading, CrossFit, Life & insanity. All with the help of my 2 crazy kiddos. In my spare time I'm a literary agent/owner at Lupine Grove Creative.

My handsome lunch date. How did I get so lucky? Every Wednesday Alan and I meet at the same BBQ place here in SLO. We know the owner, they know us, we have a regular meal, it's perfect. Best of all is the company. ❀ #love #bepresent

BOOM!! πŸ’₯As @billgrundler said as I beat my previous deadlift PR by #50lbs to make it a #275lbsdeadlift @crossfitinferno! Also, look at @apsmith227 with a #deadliftpr at #465lbs! Today both the kids got PRs in their @crossfitkids class too with Jace getting #85lbs and Eden with a one armed #kettlebell deadlift at #53lbs @crossfitinfernonipomo! Yes, the Smith family is a DEADLIFT family! Haha! #loveit #crossfit #crossfitlife #crossfitgirls #crossfitfamily #girlswholift

Made it all the way out to my car, dropped the kids off at school, came back in to work and realized I had my #unicorn magnet stuck to my keys. This clearly means it's going to be a magical day, right?! #damnstraight #magicintheair #mondaymotivation #magical #wolves

Found after drive home post #wod @crossfitinferno with big thanks to the Birthday guy himself, @billgrundler! Eden has been super bummed about not being able to workout due to her fractured elbow but we made an exception today because it's the weekend and she could have time to recover. Bill was awesome and obliged by scaling the workout to accommodate her one arm and she rocked the one arm #dumbbellsnatch, #reverseburpees with #boxjumpovers and a #100mrun AMRAP with four full rounds! Oh, and did I fail to mention she also did an eight minute #tabata of sit-ups and #airsquats? This little athlete never ceases to amaze me! She loves it! And I love her example! Thank you to everyone at @crossfitinferno & @crossfitinfernonipomo for always cheering her on and encouraging her. Eden continues to love it in part because of your support. πŸ’–πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ’– #crossfit @crossfitkids #crossfitkids #crossfitgirls #girlswholift

Why am I just now discovering Halsey? Seriously! This song. πŸ’œ There is something about music that has always stirred my soul and helped me remember who I am at my core. It's something I feel deeply and part of why I've played in bands, recorded albums, done the orchestra thing and the punk thing, all ends of the spectrum because music speaks to me when nothing else will. It will find what was once lost. When I might feel like I'm wandering without a place or time it grounds me in place. Much the way books take big feelings and shape them into words and sentences that help us feel less alone, music weaves a chord around those words and feelings - experiences, to make me feel whole. It's something for me that is both out-of-body and within. Maybe this all sounds a bit out there, but it grounds me, reminds me of who I am and what my goals are and most importantly to not get lost in the sweeping deep pull of so many demanding my time. #music #bepresent #rise #love #halsey #soul #meaning #purpose

Had to #repost this one from the @lupinegrove Insta because it's simply put one of my favorite thoughts on life in general and moving forward. Being #motivated doesn't always help you get moving when hard things hit, because even when those glimmers of inspiration hit it may not be enough to power through. Instead, #determination, #drive and #willpower serve us better in the long run. ・・・

Never thought I would say this, but this stuff is really good!! Maybe it's the @rpstrength meal plan that's warping my taste buds, but in a pinch while having a moment of weakness and this @halotopcreamery Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough more than hits the spot and fits my meal plan. Yay!! Honestly, it tastes so good! 🍦 #fitness #crossfit #crossfitgirls #icecream #halotop #getinmybelly #love

My dear friend @anneursu always with exactly the right words. πŸ’›πŸŒ½πŸ #books #love #feeling #anneursu

And folks, we have a fractured elbow. 😩 Poor thing, she really was more upset that we had to sit and starve in the doctor's office for two hours. Haha! More doctor's visits to come with a trip to the orthopedic pediatrition this week to determine if she'll need a cast or surgery. careful with those #handstands! They'll getcha every time! πŸ’–πŸ€• #ouchie #crossfit #crossfitkids #crossfitgirls

When did this sweet girl get so big? She begged to have her hair cut today and because all I'm capable of is a quick trim we kept it simple. Of course she pulls it off and then some. She's adorable! Now we'll be crossing our fingers that she doesn't end up with a cast on her left arm tomorrow to counter balance all that cuteness. πŸ’œπŸ’– #love #loveher

Love my lunches with this lady. πŸ’œ @asab204 you are a dear friend and just what this soul needed. Thank you for good food, incredible laughter, a warm heart and always the best time spent. So much love. πŸ’œ #friendshipgoals #love
