Dzień dobry! ☀️ Zapowiada się ciepły dzień, ale dziś zaczynam od walki w kuchni 👩🍳 Jak sobie zasłużę, uciekam z kawusią na taras! 😁 Miłego dnia 🖤 . . ___________________________ #interior4you1#kitchensofinsta#homelife#habitandhome#dream_interiors#roomforinspo#inspire_me_home_decor#decorationideas#currentdesignsituation#decorlovers#classyinteriors#wnetrza#kitchenstories#homeinterior4you#homedesing#homeidea#lovelyinterior#kitcheninspo#kuchnia
I love living where we do.I feel so content and safe here and I couldn’t be any prouder of me and Joe for taking the leap of faith when we did. We sacrifice a lot of time with family but it makes our time together so much more special. It can be lonely and difficult with no support 5 minutes down the road but I couldn’t be prouder or happier of the home we’ve created for our kiddos 🌷💖
Little James Dean baby 😍 chilling with his bunny. I wanted to stick to a simple/ vintage Easter theme this year. Orion is still very young so there was no point of going all out. I got him vintage looking porcelain eggs, a bunny book because he adores books and a clucking chicken (swipe to see). If you knew Orion, the last photo is the definition excitement! He is literally saying oooooh and pursing his lips like he always does 🐰 love you little man
Good thing some BUNNY is cute because this lil man has the vocal cords that would even impress “America’s Got Talent” and he cried 2/6 hours during our recent car ride to Minnesota! Holy hell. But, good news is we made it to my sister’s house and my family is all together. • • I can’t begin to thank you all enough for the overwhelming amount of support and prayers I received in my DM’s today. Thank you SO much. Life is a roller coaster and I don’t want to pretend to be always up because we all go through the highs and lows. AND if you saw my stories today, you would’ve seen 5 seconds of what really was a total of a two hour LOW #momlife 😂👶🏻💦 #iwantedtogetoutofmycarseattoo • • Parker’s little bunny romper is from @bodokekids and he WILL be wearing this again for Easter. And prob with bunny ears. And I’ll prob take a million photos. And he’ll prob will hate me for life. #cutenessoverload
I really should be working tonight but instead I’m currently laying on the couch exhausted, tired and can barely move a limb (oh and craving LA chicken). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mike somehow convinced Aliyana to go to bed with him when she usually screams bloody murder for me. Thank god for amazing husbands and foot massages. Don’t know what I would do without help! #aliyanarae
It was two Christmases ago. My mother showed me what she had been working on, but couldn’t finish in time to gift to my sisters and I that year. She plugged her laptop into her TV and I saw a home movie begin playing on the screen. She had been chipping away at digitizing our entire home movie collection for us girls to have in our own homes. . The first few seconds played as I saw my sisters and I and then his voice flooded my ears as he spoke to us from behind the camera. Tears filled my eyes in an instant and I placed my hand over my mouth as I quietly gasped. I hadn’t realized how long it had been since I had heard my father’s voice and it took my breath away. The feeling of home immediately overwhelmed me and it was the greatest thing I could have asked for that year. A time of year when memories of him are crystal clear and a time of year when he is missed just a little more than usual. Such a small thing, but you don’t realize how big of a hole you carry with you until you are reminded so vividly of what used to fill it. . I want to give my children that same gift for when I am no longer around to tell them the stories. I want them to be able to be overcome with that instant feeling of home when they ache for it. I want them to be able to relish in the memories when they begin to fade. And I want them to remember and know where they came from. And how loved they are. . My newest course, Documenting the Everyday Family Films Edition, will walk you through how to record moments and memories of your life in an inspiring and creative way. So that you can have your own library of cinematic masterpieces. A priceless library of all things home. I am so grateful to my father for inspiring me in documenting the everyday. Who inspires me to share what I am teaching and the fact that he is woven throughout so much of my why behind it all ❤️ . Seats to the documenting the Everyday: Family Films Edition are currently pre-selling for a limited time. Link in
Ok, look. I realize it’s spring now but I just stumbled upon this picture from the archives of this guy and his squishy kissable cheeks in his cute wittle hat with the poof and how could I not share it?! You’re welcome.
Okay, so I was talking to my sissy about this recently and I wanna know—what kind of person are you when it comes to DIY projects of any kind? Are you a methodical, analyzer, measurerer, planner? Or are you and you just go for the thing right then full steam ahead? My husband and I make a good team for projects because he is the former and he tempers me a bit, and I give the decisive confidence! Sometimes I regret my rashness, and sometimes I love that I got the thing done I wanted to create! So tell me which are you!!! •• this picture is unrelated, just snapped it on a day Ben was driving me bonkers and then was actin all peaceful 😐☺️••
My best friend and her husband bought a house and it’s the cutest. I got here before she was home from work so naturally I wondered around and snapped some pictures. Good pick with this one @em.okane 😍
Why are compliments so hard? Not to give, but to take. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sure they feel amazing on the inside. There isn’t anything like someone telling you, “ Hey you look really great, have you lost weight?” Or “You are beautiful!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am number one on the struggle bus of taking and accepting a compliment. Why is it that we don’t value what others see in us? Maybe it’s not that we don’t value it, but rather can’t accept that people see us this way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know I’m not perfect, nor is my neighbor, friend, or coworker. However, we are all amazing people in our own way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How can we open our eyes, minds, and hearts to accept compliments and have a good verbal (and facial 😜) response to being given a compliment. Learning to say, “Well thanks, I have been working on being healthier!” Or “I really appreciate hearing that, I’ve felt really good about myself lately!” to these compliments without feeling conceded. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe it takes looking in the mirror, once last glimpse before walking out the door and telling yourself a compliment. Maybe tell someone else a compliment too. Nothing makes you feel as good as lifting others up right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to challenge all of you to take one minute each day and praise yourself, and praise someone else. Love who you are (you’re whole self) and start believing it. Until next time. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ —————————————————————————————————————————— #selfportrait#selflove#freelancephotographer#montanaphotographer#empoweringwomen#beproudofwhoyouare#behindthescenes#businessphotography
Hello World! (Via Instagram 😂) For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Marla🙋🏼♀️. And this is my youngest daughter, Jordyn! I thought I would put a face to my new page and share a little about myself. I love love LOVE Jesus!! I just don’t know how else to say it. Through it all He’s never left my side. I’m a humbled momma with amazing, crazy, talented, funny as all heck, kids! Jordyn is my business partner in this crazy wellness and essential oil journey. She’s not, however, the reason we got started. That would be my daughter Dylan. I’ll unfold her story (with her permission) through the posts amongst this thread. Suffice it to say, she’s 1 year cancer free! Her late night google search resulted in information and power. This lead us to pursue better health, toxin-free choices at home and a more natural plant-based lifestyle. And alternatives to mainstream medicine that are derived, and infused with, all the goodness of God’s earthly creations. I’m also a widow. It’s sometimes hard to see in print but it’s also a compelling part of our story. My husband died of colon cancer at the age of 54 not long before Dylan’s diagnosis. So you see, as a mom, I’m even further motivated to arm us with information, education and the best choices possible. And I want to empower Y O U into a life of wellness, purpose and abundance. Wellness can NEVER be overstated. I’m here to walk beside you when you’re ready start your journey. I will use this platform to share what I learn and hopefully take the mystery out of essential oils. I’ll share how they can be integrated into daily life to support a healthy immune system the way God created it. I’m also learning as I go and...I’m taking hitch hikers! I personally feel better than I have in years. And I mean YEARS! I’m not going back. Plus, I have my kids to consider and someday, hopefully, grandchildren! Oh and Yes! Essential oils for babies are life changing! Ready?
One year ago I didn’t know what I was doing... I had purchased a box of Young Living oils from a friend because we were desperate for sleep. I had just returned to work from maternity leave, I was missing my kids, my hormones + emotions were all f’ed up - so I bought a box of oils. I had no idea what I was doing with them. I didn’t want to be THAT girl, + I definitely didn’t want to sell them... But man, am I so incredibly grateful to my enroller + my upline for letting me peek at the potential of the business. If I could just get my oils paid for... then I wouldn’t have to explain to Brent why yet another box from Young Living showed up at our doorstep... so I did. I kept going - If I could just pay for my oils + some gifts for my members... so I did. I kept going - If I could just pay for my oils + gifts + pay off debt... SO I DID. ✨Today was payday from Young Living✨ Today my commission check was more than my paycheck from my corporate job. Today my commission check would cover our mortgage + some. Today my commission check would pay for both of our cars + Cameron’s school tuition. Today my commission check made me realize that I need to make sure everyone I love, everyone I know, everyone who I can possibly reach, understands this business opportunity... which isn’t in the shape of a pyramid (see what I did there? 😉) Why aren’t you doing this with me yet? I want this for you. I want to run along side you. I want to link arms with you. I want to work from the beach with you. I want to experience financial freedom with you. Check out the income disclosure statement... Today I am a Silver. I set a goal for myself to reach 3 ranks a year - that will put me at Platinum in 2019. That’s an average income of $13,872 a month. A MONTH. Residual income + essential oils my friend. They’re both freaking life changing. 🌱
I'm thankful for the start of fresh, delicious veggie season!! My favorite way to prep a bunch of veggies - 🍴Chop 'em up (here I used butternut squash, zukes, and summer squash) 🍠Load with ghee + seasoning 🍲Roast at 425 for 30 minutes until perfectly caramelized I use them on salads, as a side, and as a base for eggs for breakfast!
Sometimes the Lord leads us to quiet waters to give us rest as He whispers to our souls. Sometimes He leads us to waters roaring so loudly that we have no choice but to be quiet and listen to Him. • I remember standing here and being drenched with the spray of the waterfall and hearing only crashing as it fell over the rocks into the Nile River below. I couldn’t keep from crying as the glory and majesty of the Lord washed over me in that spray. How could a God so powerful also be so personal? But He is. He is intricately involved in the details of my life and He has ordained each of my days. • Be encouraged, believer. Maybe today you are resting by still waters, but maybe you are surrounded by noise on all sides. He speaks through both, so listen for His voice.
