The love I have for you will never be fully explained through words. You are my person and I'm so thankful you were put in my life as my sister. You have seen me at my darkest times and my best times. I love you dearly and dont know what I'd do if I didnt have you. I'm so proud of the person you are and being able to be a part of your life. You are so kind and genuine. Traits I sometimes lack. Even though you are my younger sister I look up to you in so many ways. You are so smart, funny, and dorky in your own ways. I love you sissstterrr. #sisters #myperson #foreverfamily
54 never looked so good. My aunt sent me this. I can’t wait to be reunited with her in a few months. My other half. ❤️ I’ve been working on a more updated, in depth post on the loss of her husband (my uncle) last year. Socialist policies do more harm than good and we lost him due to Costa Rica’s shit healthcare system. I’m still livid about it. They lied, they were negligent, etc. But will publish this piece soon. For now, just appreciating my beautiful strong auntie. Love you to the moon and back Bac Quyen!

This guy doesn’t get enough credit.
He has had to step up in more ways than one since I started @mommeetupjax and he began his business.
Our work/home life is so unique compared to families that work 9-5’s.
Some days I’m working from home trying to find the 10 minute gaps of time where I can reply to an email or write down ideas with the kids distracting the ever loving mess out of me, and other days I’m leaving for mom only events and Jason’s being a work at home dad 🤯🤯 I feel the struggles of the stay at home mom, the struggles of the work at home mom, and the struggles do the work outside of the home mom all at different capacities. It’s so strange 🤯🤯 and each one has its own set of challenges.
Running two businesses means my work life rarely shuts off.
I hear you over there telling me I need a break - I get it. But I’m type A and relaxing is a joke. I’m counting it as a win that I scheduled days off next month #babysteps
Regardless - Jason does a really great job at not skipping a beat. He’s always been great about sharing responsibilities around the house - but recently stepped it up! He’s learned how to cook more meals and he’s gotten really good at picking up the slack wherever it’s needed.
He washes the dishes every night. He does the laundry most of the time. He does bath and bedtime with our kids every night. And the list goes on.
Is he perfect Heck no. Is our marriage perfect Heck no.
Just the other day I was ready to lose my mind with him over a scheduling conflict 🤯👊🏼💢🤯 #happywifehappylife
But does he try really hard to be an awesome father and husband...abso-freaking-loutely.
I know I drive this man crazy sometimes, but there is no one else I’d rather drive up a wall than him 🥰 he’s my person and I couldn’t do any of this without him.

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss
I don't know about you, but I can be such a people pleaser. Have you noticed though, that you can never please everyone And that when you try, you typically are burying your own personal truth and it leaves you feeling icky inside
Yep, I've done it more than I can count.
One of the most freeing things I've been learning lately is that other people's opinions are not rooted in my worth.
The way that someone judges another person is based in THEIR perception. THEIR belief system. THEIR previous hurts and experiences.
When you can see that someone's actions or words aren't personal it lifts a weight off your shoulders that you didn't realize you had been carrying.
Be you ❤
Stand in your truth.
Stop trying to be something you're not.
The people that find you and stick around Those are your people and they'll love you in a way you can't even imagine 💕
