Memories | Seven years ago today we laid my Mom to rest after her third brave battle with cancer. Two years ago today my longtime friend Reagan posted this on FB to let people know about my blog page. Three years ago is when I first set up the Luckygirlbyann FB page followed by this Instagram account. The main reason initially was to share what I had learned after going through horrendous treatment for breast cancer and how I was navigating survivorship. Also having lost both parents to cancer that has also been a focus. It has since ebbed and flowed along with life’s ups and downs that I’ve experienced since then. I share what I do here in the hopes of helping someone who has gone through similar experiences or who could use a little bit of inspiration now and then. I do feel as though I’ve been through hell as many of us have, but I’m still standing and I’m proud of that. It’s not been an easy road that’s for sure dear friends. Thank you Reagan for this quote and letting me know that by sharing my life’s challenges it had helped you as well. xo 🍀 #saturdaythoughts #mood #memories #wecandohardthings #survivor #survivorship #stillstanding #cancer #mentalhealth
أصبحت اليوم و بين يدي ذكرى جديدة حارة تتضور وتتأوه وتتلوى كالنفس المترددة بين البقاء والإنتحار. وأخذتني منها شفقة فحملتها برأفة إلى معبد الأذكار في أعماق روحي... مي زيادة
سلام حار إلى مدينة عزيزة على قلبي، إلى مدينة حضنتني وقت نزولي في أرضها كما لو كنت بنتها الشاردة،العائدة رغما عنها!
سلام إلى براغ، مدينتي هناك. .

Went through photos at my mom’s this afternoon and found these three photos from when I was a baby 👶🏼 The first photo is me at about 4 weeks old, along with my parents, grandparents, great grandparents and great, great grandmother 👵 The second and third photos are of me when I was one and two years old 👶🏼 Love looking through old photos ♥️ #memories #babyphotos #blackandwhitephotography #fivegenerations
И снова токсикоз 🙈Примерно 10 лет назад в моем животе поселились «5 Кать», которых с сегодняшнего дня 10, и с тех пор каждый август я покупаю тесты на беременность, потому что мой мозг волшебным образом запомнил то волшебное время, когда запах яблок, травы и овощей вызывал у меня содрогание и весила я 43 кг😵 Август 2015 не был исключением, но тогда уже Сёма взялся за дело😅. А на фото я вовсе не строгая, как заметили 10 лет назад несколько моих друзей, просто я за секунду до 🤮 и держусь за березу 😂 #memories #2010 #10yearsagochallenge #pregnancyphotoshoot
A few years ago my sister came out from Florida to visit. We celebrated her 45th birthday a little early with a visit to Napa. These pictures and post popped up in my Facebook memories today. "Told PLH how much I dislike grown women calling themselves "princess"...So she called me "Bubbles". I had to laugh. (and sip more "bubbles")" Love and moss my big sister. XOXO @perry_lynns #sister #sisters #memories #family #napa #love

The mess can wait!!
We have been out ALLLL day, and mama has been busy working her "side gig" while daddy @nuttinwitty picked up the slack.
Today Emery left early with daddy to go to ball tournament while mommy had some appointments I couldnt take her with. It was a no nap day with an hour drive home with an overtired, cranky toddler.
My house is a mess, the sink is full of dirty dishes, its 3 hours to bed time so nap is not happening. I should be cleaning, but instead Emery and I are snuggled on the couch watching Trolls.
The mess can wait!!
Quiet time like this with my sweet girl is more important than a clean house.
You dont have to be super mom, you just have to be a present mom. (Her little feet are tucked under my bum, lol)

Visiting Old San Juan was heart warming. Watching the elders have fun and enjoy life was amazing. The energy there was beautiful. You. An feel the music through this man’s voice. His soul can be felt and the women on the side singing along with him... so beautiful. By the way, the group playing dominos were funny. When I asked if I could take a picture, one of the ladies told me, “Si, tómale foto a ese pollo,” referring to the older man speaking in the video. It was a funny moment. 🤗❤️ #oldsanjuan #puertorico #vacations #culture #beautiful_energy #fun #memories #summer
✧ We received these photos yesterday from a couple we met on the Gibb seven days ago. We had no idea they were in Broome so it was pretty funny to learn they were stalking us from the cliff tops. I’m putting these photos up as a reminder of the great day we had yesterday, just sitting around cable beach for 4 hours doing nothing, which has rarely happened so far, and to remember the great people we have met on this trip. This couple actually owned a winery near where we live and turns out we have mutual friends and on the night we meet them they had ordered pizza for dinner and ordered too much so brought over a plate to our table to share. It’s moments and people like this we will remember forever ✧
