THIS photo almost didn’t happen. . I drove past this super random bus on my way to do some hiking, and I thought “hey this bus looks dope” I had my camera with me, but I was too nervous to get out of my car and ask the people living inside if I could take some pictures.... . I kept driving and the whole time I was “hiking” (cmon I just had a baby it was more like walking.. slowly.. up a hill) I was wishing I had stopped. . On the way home, I made myself get out of the car, knock on the door of the bus, and the guy inside was super chill, he said it was totally fine to take some pictures, and I took this crazy magical shot. . I never imagined it would be featured on the @unsplash homepage and get over 1,500 downloads in 2 days 👀 WHAT!? . Moral of this story: If you get the urge to create something, CREATE IT. Have the courage to CREATE. 🧡
Realness 👉🏻 If you want to go out, and you’re a mom, you have to be prepared for Anything and everything. Even if that means pulling over the side of the road to let your toddler go potty, stopping for chicken nuggets bc you forgot breakfast, leaning over the car seat to nurse and yes....Even whipping out the boob in the back corner of a shop to nurse. Not an easy feat and I only cried once.😅 Needless to say I’m 100% exhausted, time to curl up on the couch with some vino and the flix and sleep until Tuesday. But first, gotta give the girls their bath ✌🏻 hope you are enjoying your Saturday night!
these New Mexico sunsets will never get old.... p.s. SAY CHESSE 📸
TWO. 🎂 You know how they say you wont remember what life was like before having kids? I can confirm that is 100% truth. This little dare devil has been keeping me on my toes for 2 years...as I sit and write this she is climbing on her toy car and jumping on the couch 🥳 I couldn’t imagine loving anyone more or having more fun than I do right now with you. Love you skunk!
Not a lot of work gets done when u a mom! Used to be something that really stressed me out...but as of late I’ve just been embracing the fact that one project might take me 17 years to finish. My one job right now is to laugh and play with my girls! What could be better?
the “i just had a baby” essentials 👉🏻 oversized sweatshirt, messy top bun, and zit cream (aka toothpaste) ... aren’t I glamorous 🥴 double tap if you a momma just tryna live your best lyfe ☕️☕️☕️☕️
Hi 👋🏻 from my couch! 😂Honestly been mostly chillin here for 3 weeks, in between feedings, naps, snacks, shopping on amazon, hot baths, steams, and diaper changes. Self care life been 100% since having baby Violet! But the only thing keeping my brain from just completely disintegrating are creative projects for myself and my clients! (Did you catch Violet’s birth vlog!?!) . I have been a ton of good things in the works including a video showing how I made $100 in 24 hours off just ONE FB post...with literally zero people on my email list and an audience of about 80 (HI MOM & DAD) hopefully I can get it uploaded SOON but you know me, perfectionist. SO stayyyyy tunnnned 🙌🏻✨ #laptoplife #digitalceo #mompreneurs

I can’t believe this happened... . Its been 2 years since I took a day and focused just on myself. Alice still nurses, so “me time” is usually staying up after she goes to sleep. But I finally reached my breaking point. . I “snuck out” of the house, loaded up the board, and drove 2 hours to the lake! Spent this day soaking up the sun, the water, the breeze...with no one rushing me, or needing something from me. Seriously forgot what that felt like! . Needless to say, now I look like a lobster, am totally exhausted, but feel like a brand new momma. 🙌🏻 one more month until baby V makes her grand entrance 🙏🏻
I’m having an astrologer read my chart for the next year tonight !! ✨💫 eep! Its like getting your horoscope, but way more epic... . I had my birth chart first read last year by none other than my astrology teacher from college. It was the most interesting thing I’ve ever done! . I know, most people, esp my husband are skeptical about this sort of thing, but HELLO. Think about this... we live on a blue planet that circles a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea. Obv theres MORE to the Universe that meets the eye. And call me naive or foolish, but I choose to believe in it All. . All the magic, all the “woo”, all the miracles. I choose to experience all of it. 💫 . And i also choose to experience this chocolate glazed krispy kreme donut because WHY NOT!?! 🍩 . Are you a skeptic or a believer? Either way we can still be friends! ✌🏻
Surprise 🤰 ((actually this probably isn’t a surprise to most of you 😅)) I’m 29 weeks along with baby V! 👶🏻 ✨ . I kind of went dark on here for the past few months but THANK YOU for all the dms 🙏🏻💛 . It was nuts. I woke up a surprising 10lbs heavier than normal one day 😒 ((which anyone whose lost weight before knows how devastating that is haha)).. I knew something was up, and then found out I was expecting baby numero dos... and in all honesty, I fell into a depression of sorts. . The last 7 months have been up and down. Physically the pregnancy is going well, but emotionally it’s been really hard on me! I have allllllllll these ideas + goals + dreams but don’t even have 5 minutes to shower by myself. #strugglebus . I desperately needed some time off social to adjust to desert life and the fact that I’m about to have 2 crazy monkeys running around 😅 . Fist bump 👊🏻 to all the moms out there. Being a mom is definitely the hardest job out there 💯 and p.s. I’ve officially started waddling 🐧

Its a bagel + red pepper kind of day 🌶💯 One time i was trying to eat Real healthy, back when I was still learning how to change my diet. I was eating a bagel sandwich with tons of veggies (spinach, peppers, cucumber, etc... I though I made a good choice 🤷♀️) I asked a co worker if they thought that it was healthy and she said “welll eating a bagel is like eating 8 pieces of bread... soooo itssa no.” 😳 well, if eating a bagel is wrong, I dont want to be right! 😜💃🏻 the latest on the blog is 5 foods for better digestion (hint: its not bagels) and the KEY 🔑 to maintaining a healthy lifestyle (hint: it is kind of bagels 🤫).
