On my last work trip of the year and had to leave these two little elves at home, and needless to say it was not easy. I still can’t believe they’re mine and how big they look every day. Can we all please ask the universe to slow down time enough so that I can try and memorize all the important things before it’s too late, and a new important thing becomes The Thing
You know, like the way they look at you when you’re telling a story and watch your every word, making you realize how much more they’re learning and comprehending with every passing moment and reminding you that you’re still the center of their universe; and the way they start to repeat words of their favorite things that aren’t words yet and only you know exactly what they mean; and how they start to try to mimic what you say but it’s mostly a repeated tone with an emphasis on the key consonants, and it makes you laugh; and the first of the morning snuggles that melt in your arms and in the crook of your neck that you can never let go; and any moment they call you “mama” because they need you and can’t speak in full sentences yet, which makes communication challenging at times, but you’re secretly afraid of the moment when they aren’t the little people emphatically shouting “mama” around the house anymore because they can actually talk, which means they aren’t as little anymore 💙💙
These are the moments I live for.
Dear Xander & Vance, Please don’t grow up too fast my sweet boys, at least not until I can truly memorize all the important things. XO, Mom

We are now the proud parents of two chunky 7 month olds! Another month has come and gone and now we’re celebrating the boys first Christmas! 🎄 Time is just flying by with these wild things!
Logan weighed in today at a whopping 20 lbs 🙃 and Gabriel was right behind him at thick 18.5 pounds! These boys are giving us a run for our money these days. They have both started crawling and are all over the place! They love to chase Cruise around and just laugh at him all day long! They are still loving all new foods and enjoy all mealtimes 😂 Kevin and I truly are the luckiest parents in the world to be raising these two boys. 👨👩👦👦💙💚 Some photos taken by @claragomezphotography

A GIVEAWAY from me to you! I wanted to give you guys a little Christmas gift just to say thanks for being here (you know it’s my love language 😉) I’m not teaming up with a group of people and will be personally putting this in the mail to you. This one is from my heart❤️
I created this giveaway specifically for the busy mom, the regular mom, the cool mom, the mom-to-be, and all of the above. But REALLY, it’s for anyone that wants to be more organized and get it together in 2019. I asked namebubbles to jump in on it with me and, because they are awesome, they said yes. Here it is!
One lucky winner will receive :
* A $100 gift card for personalized name labels from namebubbles. Use them for your kids, give them to a friend’s kid (makes a GREAT baby shower or kids bday gift) or heck even yourself. They are dishwasher and laundry safe and I put them on everything. This will get you lots of labels!
* A $50 gift card to Amazon you can use towards all of my favorite organizing, wellness (hello, car diffuser!) and life-hack products especially for moms. I’ll be sharing and linking my favorites in stories today.
* The same 2019 planner that I have with an awesome interior layout. Yours will be white leather and mine is gray and now we can be #twinning.
* FINE. Twist my arm. I’m throwing in an ice roller, too! 😂
* Total value : $175

Winner will be chosen and announced on Friday 12/21. Not sponsored or endorsed by Instagram. US only, please 🎁🌲 #giveaways
The energy of travel can bring you into a state that dissolves all concepts of how things are, leaving you with a taste of unexplainable direct experience of oneness, — feeling of a momentary dissolution of time and space.
It is a state where words become deficient to convey what is happening, become inadequate and unnecessary limitation or even interference.
It is arrival at the space inside that is ultimately larger and more profound than conceptual capacity of mind. This is a fertile soil for unique travel insight to appear.
It is a state of melting of old self, or at least a temporary dissolution of its fences, felt as inner bliss of timelessness and completeness.
Our blockage to feeling the most alive rises from confusing our ideas and thoughts about reality for reality itself.
Vibrant experience of feeling alive frequently accompanies a release of "self" as a concept of life with limiting identity and corralling designations. Liberation of spiritual energy triggered by a combination of inner readiness and conducive environment can lead to a pure and direct experience of wholeness of who you are — freedom of feeling vibrantly alive.
These magical moments of travel, experiences of feeling alive are of great value and should be collected, recorded and cherished. These precious travel insights come alive once shared and used as energy of inspiration for personal empowerment at times of uncertainty and boredom of ordinary life. "Go travel to fall in love"

This weekend was a breath of fresh air. Some long overdue company with my best friend was the intention but I got to step out of my every day surroundings and re-evaluate my personal and professional status. Goals were made. Plans and priorities were set and fun was definitely had 🙌🏼
