Mama & her girl 💕 // this photo from our session together has been sitting in my camera roll to be posted for two weeks. 🤦🏼♀️
Our home just got 10x more cozy 💫🎄
Define my own courage then choose it every day. Quit my afternoon latte habit. Save pennies, buy quality. Put hobbies, home-cooked meals + hanging out with friends on the weekly to do list, treat them with the same respect as board meetings + budgets. More books, less screens. Start a gratitude list. The 31 Manifesto. #betterlatethannever
In case you needed a reminder.
You are beautiful, you are loved, you are enough. 💗
Lately, I've been given much-needed reminders that works & outward appearances & what others think about me don't define me or determine my worth. My worth is found in Jesus who loves me as I am - broken & imperfect. So thankful for the ultimate gift of grace 💗
Naked babies are the best! This photo was taken about five seconds before baby Thomas decided he needed to go to the bathroom LOL I was actually surprised at how much pee he had in his little body. Luckily the studio has wood floors so the cleanup was quick and painless! AND very luckily dad missed most of it as well 😂
Sunday evenings are my favorite for slowing down and nurturing me. I love drawing a hot bath with epsom salts and my favorite essential oils. 🛀🏼Such a great way to renew, relax and push that reset button! Today, as I stood in front of my oils stash, my body was intuitively drawn to Nutmeg, Lemongrass and Fennel (circulation, lymph flow, adrenal love, happy hormones).🌿 Odd choice of oils for a bath, but it was exactly what I needed. 💖 .
Was your weekend non-stop exciting and fun Or did you get a chance to slow down and recharge Glad there’s a time for both! 💫😊

When you’ve “done the work”, healed the wounds, forgiven and released unhealthy, LEARNED life patterns, (and after you pick your sulking ass up off the floor from the aftermath) 🤦🏽♀️😫 it’s nice to know that I’ve made it to the other side! 🤗🎉 I can honestly say that I’ve been able to recognize my triggers and work thru them IMMEDIATELY to clear the rest of the 💩. I’m in a much healthier place mentally, emotionally, physically- I’m still manifesting the financial part Lol 🤷🏽♀️ #ItsComing 🙏🏽 Lol But the best part of it all, is looking back at my past self and seeing how far I’ve come this year. I’ve battled issues of self-worth and abandonment. I’ve forgiven myself for being my own roadblock; for not realizing that I always had a choice and fear prevented me from living authentically. Mostly fear of judgment. 🤦🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️ I had an epiphany last night about how people project and mirror their own fears or triggers, because I immediately recognized the patterns in my own life. I acknowledged them and immediately forgave myself for the shame that washed over me. I’ve released codependent thought processes and learned detachment to expected outcomes. I’ve released my past, because I can’t change anything that happened there - and those things, along with all I’ve experienced this year, are what shaped me to who I am NOW... I am grateful for hell I’ve been through because I see just how strong I REALLY AM. I’m grateful for the tribe of people who surrounded me with love when I needed it most. 🙏🏽 I don’t even remember when I lost my way... but I’m back baby... and you ain’t seen NOTHIN YET!! ✨✨ #ThisIs46 #PreservingMySexy #Blasian #ThatGirlTamIsStillHotShit

Today I learned that being (almost) 37 weeks pregnant doesn’t mix well with: mountain walks + cold snow + low blood sugar. 😂 But we accomplished our very last maternity session, one I’ve been dreaming of this entire pregnancy (and one I’ve been seriously worried we’d have a baby before it happened). I just still cannot believe we’ve made it here, and our girl will be arriving SO soon. ❤️
Girls did amazing! 👏🏼
Met the sweetest little babe and her parents (and fur siblings) for a freezing but fun session! Here are a few sneak peeks.
All dressed up and ready for their Winter Piano Rehearsal 😍

My daughters & I watched @candacecbure’s latest @hallmarkchannel Christmas movie “A Shoe’s Addicts Christmas” over the weekend & this dress reminds me of one of the movie’s messages - sometimes a shoe 👠 (or a dress 👗 in my case) can bring you back to a specific time or a certain memory. This particular dress that I wore today brought me back to a difficult time in my life 🙌🏼 • • •
It was only the 2nd time I’ve ever worn this dress 👗 in the last 4 years but oh, did it bring me back to that time of difficult trials. Barely able to zip up the dress 4 years ago (literals & figuratively), I was emotionally unstable & physically recovering from my melanoma. Today, putting on that same dress, I am a much wiser, spiritually strong & physically healthier woman yet, the scar on my chest reminds me of the battle I was fighting the last time I was wearing this dress. • • •
Sometimes we need these reminders, we need to be brought back to that “hard” time, so we can remember the journey we were on & the progress we have made. God is so good, my friends. Don’t ever forget that. The journey is part of our story. Even a detour can shape the road God has paved for us. Our perception dictates how we view our life & I am grateful for the gift of sanctification 🙏🏼

Today’s weather in Nashville - foggy with a change of rain or snow and colorful umbrellas!
25 Days of Wesley: 9 | 25. This guy is a 2 year old in exactly one month. Cue ugly crying.

Weekend redo anyone The weekend is never long enough! Ready to face the week ahead, but I would have been okay having one more day in the weekend! Double tap if you agree! 🙋🏼♀️
What’s your favorite part of traveling ✈️
Mine is having unplanned experiences like night time excursions to see the glow worms or catching a pod of dolphins playing in the sea! It’s sometimes the unplanned moments that are the most memorable.
On this last day in @puntamita at @fspuntamita I have been soaking up all the resort has to offer in every pool area and took a long walk on the beach. We also went up on the cliff side early this morning and among the rocks, watching the waves crashing. This property truly is spectacular and will always hold a special place in my heart! I can’t wait to return for some upcoming events! Thank you @adrimendezpv for your incredible hospitality and to an amazing group of industry friends that made this such a great trip! I will be recapping more in the coming days here and @treschicwhitney ! 📸 @victoriaangelaphoto #fourseasons #fspuntamita #puntamita #visitmexico
I remember my mom putting me in front of this quote in highschool and at first I didn't understand it. It became one of the first quotes that played a part in changing the course of my life. You know, those quotes that change your mind for good...How could I possibly be afraid of being great🤨 Everybody wants to be the best they can be, happy, rich, successful!! But I didn't realize that in desperately reaching out I wouldn't attain this and I didn't realize the responsibility that came with owning your true power and using that to work and live straight from the heart. It's something I still contemplate regularly but I'm working on getting comfortable with feeling uncomfortable. The world needs your MAGNIFICENCE 💫💫💫💫
Today I read the boys The Christmas Story. We set up the nativity set, talked about Mary, Joseph, the three wise men and of course baby Jesus. We talked about the angels and the shepherd who graciously opened up his manger, a place of shelter and warmth to a man and woman who desperately needed a place to stay. We talked about the star that guided the wisemen to Jesus, and that Christmas is so much more than Santa Claus and cookies. It’s about a faith so strong, so powerful and impactful to so many of us. It’s the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. Whether you believe it or not, THAT’S what it’s all about, friends.
Admittedly we don’t go to church. But we do praise him in our hearts and in our home. In little ways, quiet ways, we aren’t so forthcoming about it. Maybe that’s wrong, maybe it’s not But we believe. We pray to God, thank him for all the blessings in our lives and pray for those not as fortunate. We pray for healing, we pray for grief and we pray for strength. We pray for good times and health, we pray for so many things. But do we pray enough Am I teaching them that it’s okay to pray and talk to God regularly I need to be better at that.
It’s hard to be a parent. You’re constantly wondering if you’re doing good enough. Am I patient enough, present enough Am I teaching them how to be kind and good and faithful and true
I don’t know what kind of job we’re doing, because we are sort of just winging it, day after day... but I’ll tell you what. I pray. I pray to be better, I pray that they know their God, I pray that he protects them, guides them and keeps them safe. I believe in the spirit of Christmas, and I’m trying the best I can to help them to believe, too. So Merry Christmas to all, may you be blessed with the comfort of faith, whatever that may be to you. This is just what it is to me❤️
I’m so excited 😆!

Life lately has been up, down and all around (balancing school, work, my love, friends, family and the blog, all really good stuff but it can be totally overwhelming at times). There’s nothing I need more than to really really take the time to focus on self-care. It’s soooo easy to stray away from it and just go through the motions saying “ooooh I’ll workout tomorrow, when I have a bit more time” or “I’ll go to church next Sunday” or my most frequent one lately, “I’ll just eat whatever, I don’t have time to make something healthy rn.” Way too guilty. I don’t know about you guys but this is SO me when I don’t take a second and remind myself that what I do for myself each and every day, is important and it provides the stepping stones to where I want to eventually be. Each seemingly little tiny thing, it matters. @vivefloatstudio has made it crazy quick & easy to clear my mind and body. I feel so grateful to have found such a peaceful place to go so I can feel motivated and free to do more with my week ahead! Needing some extra calm in your life You can try for yourself and get 33% off if you mention my name - I know you guys will love it as much as I do ✨

Tell me you have Inner Defense in your life! I swear by this stuff!
These are awesome for being preventative and proactive. If you travel - take some, going to be in a crowd - take some, around someone sick - take some, feeling rundown - take some.
Inner Defense reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function, and contains potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support.
💡TIP:💡Did you know these are meant to be swallowed but if that is a challenge for you or your kiddo, take a pair of scissors and cut one open. You can massage onto the bottom of the feet!
