You can heal. You can achieve your goals. You can relax. You can just be. Nothing is out of your reach. Happy Monday! 💚
I’m not sure if laughing adds years to your life, but it will sure add life to your years, so give yourself all those laugh lines, and enjoy every minute of it.
There’s nothing better than a Colorado sunset!😍🌇 #nofilter
Things are getting real over here because it’s moving weeeeek. I pray for good movers and a not so grumpy baby.
My husband knows about my green thumb that recently came out stronger than ever. Last Christmas, he bought me a bonsai tree kit that came with 4 different bonsai species. We originally went to the Navy Base to go to the grocery store.. I never really took the time out to check out their garden center. The big plant is for my planter box that my husband had done for me by the company that did our backyard. He’s always known I had a love for gardening.. I knew the commissary had some gems.. but the garden center was a mine for gold! I even got 2 big pots for the Black Rose succulents given to me. When I say I got the pots, I mean my husband did 😂😂😂.. thanks @gsta86! •
The exciting thing is that I’ve got more succulents on the way from different people here in California who are growing them. I’m so excited! Stay tuned for my project tomorrow!
She reached for him, and my heart broke as I saw in her eyes what I had not expected to see. She was desperate for him and, she loved him. I had no idea. I looked around, hoping to see a social worker who could intervene and deliver me from this awkward moment as well as ease this woman's anxiety to hold her child.

I took this photo of goddess moon this morning. She is on her path to renewal and rebirth. And so am I.
I also want to give a special thanks to fierce hermana @musemedicina for being vulnerable during a live earlier today about what we go through during the journey of motherhood, especially for those of us who are older moms. This chapter in our lives is one of the hardest. We are rediscovering ourselves. And in the process, we are losing pieces of our former lives until it feels that we’re in the dark. And then, when least expected, our light begins to grow again, stronger this time. We got this, hermana! #waningmoon #moongoddess #ixchel #rebirth #motherhood #maternidad #chingonassupportchingonas #sisterhoodismedicine #selenophile #daytimemoon
Baby girl played her 2nd basketball game tonight. 🖤 We didn’t win but boy...they hustled. This momma wears many hats but now you’ll see her cheering at basketball games, sour pickle in one hand & Hot Cheetos in the other! Haha 😆 Let’s end the night with this gorgeous photograph because all I want to do is stuff my face with tacos after that loss.
Had my 20 week scan today and am happy to report that baby boy is doing great! 👶🏼 andddd my placenta is right where it should be so no restricted activity this pregnancy 🙌🏼 this little man gave us all of the photos and angles needed, and the tech even said “it’s no nice when they act like this” - meaning so far he’s been much more cooperative during ultrasounds than his big brother was 😂 maybe that means he’ll be the calm one 🤞🏼
I know I’ve already said it but the fact that I’m halfway through this pregnancy already has my mind a little blown 🤯 the next few months are going to fly by! #20weekspregnant #boymom💙
p.s. I pulled out my old maternity jeans to wear for the first time again today and as soon as I got dressed the reunited song hit my head 😂 it’s good to be back in these (comfy) bad boys!
To all the mamas out there! 💖
I want to know if you felt connected to your kiddo(s) before they arrived in your arms.
Were you paying attention to the energy of the spirit of your child
Did you have any special pregnancy or preconception dreams
Were there parts of your child’s personality that was communicating to you or guiding you to change certain aspects of your life
These are some of the things we connect, discuss and share about in our private sessions together.
I will support you in being able to receive the guidance from your spiritual child so that you can be making decisions in alignment to them, you and your family’s visions.
But for now, I want to hear from all of the moms who have children already! ✨
Can you look back and see where your child was communicating and trying to guide you

Someone’s excited for their bottle today!
We have been trialing Uganic Premium Organic Toddler Milk for the past week and Sassy didn’t batter an eye from changing from almond milk to the Uganic Toddler Milk.
From really early on Sassy was ultra sensitive to dairy so I was a little worried when we did the switch last week, however we haven’t had any tummy issues.
It can be worrying as a mama to a toddler that perhaps they’re not getting enough of the things they need to help them grow, because let’s face it.. most little ones will refuse everything but plain pasta or toast 🤦🏼♀️ Uganic Premium Organic Toddler Milk is filled with all the goods including 16 essential vitamins and minerals for healthy development, and the mini loves it!
Better yet it’s so easy to make and even comes with a hygienic scoop inside the tub ready to quench you little babes thirst! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

A Message to The Future Bedridden You: Life is more about what happens in you then what happens to you.
I had an accident a week ago, as many of you know, & have been bedridden since. You, dear friends, will walk through bed ridden seasons as well where you are knocked off your feet and find yourself rather helpless. .
On this #MommyTipMonday let me encourage you with these truths:
1. Allow Others Into Your Weakness: The life altering power of hospitality exist only when we allow ourselves to be weak and vulnerable with others. Say Yes to offers of help & soak in w/ a heart of gratitude the presence of every soul that walks into your home to serve. Life and joy will spread from them to you and from you to them. .
2. Believe that God is Good ALL THE TIME. Do not let your circumstances, illness, or physical pain ever lead your to question the character of God. He is ALWAYS good. He is ALWAYS with us. He will ALWAYS sustain you in the weakest hours of your life.
3. USE YOUR TIME WELL. That can very well look like sleeping when in need of that kind of rest and healing. But when your bedrest state has an alert state of mind be inspired to use your time well. I understand the desire to numb the pain or sickness with binge watching movies or a Netflix series, but let me encourage you to use these quiet hours for more. REDEEM the time. You get ONE life. LITERALLY. One life. Use this laid up time to seek God’s face, to pray more faithfully & for more people. If you are strong enough write and journal. Invite friends over and listen to their hearts. Listen to audiobooks that transform your soul and lift your eyes off of your physical ailment and onto the Lord or inspire you for living more fully this beautiful gift of life when you are better. .

We made soap slime at playcenter today, swipe to see how messy she got! all i can say is thank goodness its only soap 🤣
Bathtime for Max 🛁 One of our favorite activities because Max gets to splash water everywhere 😄.
💕💕💕 We have ‘huggletime’ in the car before drop off... best 10 minutes of my day 🤗🤗🤗 Still have to sneak away after drop off cause she doesn’t want me to leave 😕
She said that she’s going to make a suggestion to her teacher that they put up a sign saying ‘mums and dads aren’t allowed to leave!!’ Don’t know if they’re implementing this one though 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
I've debated about this photo or even posting, but it's part of my story and other mommies out there.
I love being a mom who's focused, understanding, engaged, enjoying every opportunity or every second of motherhood. With amazing days that I wish could never end. I've been all of this.
But I have also been the mom that felt like she could no longer be patient, listen to anymore crying, clean up another mess,
Because I'm just so damn tired.
This is the aftermath of a blood hurdling tantrum lasting 2 hours, and a mother who's had a history of emotional issues.
This photo I was drained.
My emotions running high.
I was crying and I was laughing.
I felt miserable.
I felt angry, because I couldn't figure out what she needed.
I felt like the joy of being a mother was sucked out of me.
And it hurts that I can't be the mother she needed at that time.
But when days feel long, and your mind goes numb,
Remember you are their safety, their home with a blanket,their forever first love,and their shoulder to lean on.
And when funds are low, but debt is high remember your not defeated your only a step behind.
When you feel your world becoming small, remember you are the world in their bright eyes.
I've felt like a failure, one ugly lost cause.
And I accepted that fate with pain in my chest, the ache behind my eyes, the labored breathing from crying awhile.
But I looked down and I saw her sleeping, she took a deep breath and sighed.
I felt that warmth of my love for my child, and even though she doesn't understand,
I will always love her.
So I hope to the parents they know even on bad days you know how special you are.
Cause I have been the love and the mess.
But one thing I can't quit on is being a mother who will try her best. 🧡🧡

Motherhood is truly a beautiful thing. You see things entirely different. I stare back at myself in this photo and see a changed woman. Completely unrecognizable and yet it’s like I’ve been living up to become this woman my entire life. I see empowerment, responsibility, & so much love and happiness. It’s hard to explain. But becoming a mother was my purpose. I feel whole. It’s wonderful.
