Back in the office two days a week with @squarepegcic with this little one in tow. Inclusion is our most important word, flexible working hours for new parents and parents with disabled kids. Being able to work around appointments and life is so important. Today was a prime example when Bella was on an ultimate go slow and wasn't ready when the bus came so we had to drive her in meaning I was 'late' in. Switching her back onto sleep meds is amazing when she is spiralling into mania but her sleep routine is still a little off. It will get better and for the most part she is happy so all positive. #ittakesavillage#autism
Grateful for helpful neighbors who have equipment! Unloaded 3000# of feed in no time flat. As new farmers we make do with what we have and a lot of physical work. And while I'm grateful for that ability to use my body to do real work, sometimes big equipment really saves the day. And the back. Don't be afraid to ask for help! Trade favors, barter for goods. Lend a ✋! #ittakesavillage#homesteadmom#hempsteadtexas
I had a really useful and inspiring day at @topdrawerlondon yesterday. Initially I felt a bit overwhelmed by the sea of stationary and oodles of wildly talented people, but spent the afternoon watching some really interesting talks. This quote from @gayle_haddock from @hustleandfox in particular made me stop and think. She, along with her colleague Debs @debouis and Vicky from @meanmail where doing a talk about social media for small businesses and spoke about how sometimes it can seem like everyone on The Gram is at a party that you're not invited to. But those people started out with no followers just like everyone else, and built up their connections and became friends IRL. It is very easy to just want to be there at the same party as them (it looks super fun and the FOMO is real, right?), but actually why can't we start our own party and have our own fun? I'm not saying that the people who are already having the parties aren't inclusive and lovely and friendly, just that I think there is room everyone and that I don't want anyone to feel left out. Also, parties are fun. So, shall we have a party? Everyone is invited! #party#startyourownparty#letshaveaparty#partytime#fomo#findyourtribe#weareatribeofhumans#irl#inreallife#communityovercompetition#girlgang#ittakesavillage#networking#network#connect#womensupportingwomen#strongertogether

Today, my heart is full. 💕 2 years may not seem like a long time but what an adventure is has been. System changes to renovations, being locked up to being locked out, getting blacklisted to getting blacked out, this team has been my world. You’ve seen me at my absolute worst and my absolute best. We’ve cried together, we’ve laughed together, we’ve yelled at each other, we’ve even ripped our pants together. Mad love for you wild & crazy animals. @tanonthestreet_ @brittanygripp @sarahfrancey @wdpfenning @sandi_babyy @missmeg927 @brianratkovic #costcontainment#wildwildbest#ittakesavillage
My neighbor has been helping me learn more about parenting my 4 year old because unfortunately Marley has been a little out of control... Well she got me stuff to make a rewards chart & a schedule & got us a tether to help protect Marley from running off into the road or getting away from me in public!!!! I always hated state social workers because they were so mean always putting me down & my Mom & Gramma live so few away .. So I'm so happy & grateful my friend & neighbor is helping me from a place of compassion :) #parenting#momlife#gratitude#womenhelpingwomen#ittakesavillage
I’ve started working on a few special things lately and this is one I’m really honored to be doing. We lost a special mama in a groups of 500 women that have become like a second family to so many of us. Today marks the day that mama lost her sweet baby girl. So today do a random act of kindness for someone in honor of Viv and Ashley. You could be impacting someone more than you could imagine. #raok#vivienneraok#momsquad#myvillage#motherhood#ittakesavillage#uniteinmotherhood
Blessed to have participated in another round of The Tiger Talk mentoring program. Trying to get to these young men and get them goal oriented early! On behalf of my mom I want to thank everyone who consistently participated in building relationships with these young men and showing them that there are a lot of good people who come from this city that care about them and want to help! #ittakesavillage#tigertalk#vibe
How’s your day going today? Mines going like this: - drop kids at school - run in Walmart for an onion - get some other things and a basket to #konmarie tidy up - go home & #tidyup one drawer, thank the lord the basket fits! Need more. - load up and go back to Walmart. - pick out 2 new houseplants - pick out 8 new baskets 🤦🏻♀️ - go to check out in the garden center & leave basket with plants in it balancing on the handle bar of the buggy - push buggy 2 inches, dump plants and baskets on top of Walker 😂 - explain to 2 people on the way out that they * are indeed #twins * and * yes that is potting soil all over the one in the green * 😂😂😂 - try to shake out soil but realize baby will get shaken baby syndrome - take baby out, passing Walmart employee laughs with us and brushes out the soil - time to keep on keepin on because #konmegan got this! . Mess upon mess upon mess. We need a reality show.
One thing I hear often are limiting beliefs, such as - “I’m middle aged, it’s too late for me, I’m too heavy, I’m just big-boned, I’m too busy” etc. Hold up, wait, what?! 🧐 🌟IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO GET STARTED!🌟 You will be amazed at what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it, no matter what your age, genetics or physical capabilities. Take control, be your own warrior! It will be hard, the best things are, but you will NOT regret loving yourself one bit - that I can promise you 💜 Your level of outpouring to others will also increase 💞 So take charge of your life and let go of those limiting beliefs! ✌🏼

These two..my contractors but mostly my mom and dad. They were such a key piece of Oriana Acres in that first year. I could call on them for anything. They built the Floral Studio and crafted up everything in it, from display shelving to a recent geometric installation archway for weddings. Mom also spent hours planting with me and keeping me sane while Dad welded post pounders together and shared his maintenance expertise. Seriously the dream team. They trusted my vision. People ask, "How did you do it all??"...I didn't! I would have been a blubbering mess on the floor without these two backing me! #mydreamteam#localflowerfarm#ittakesavillage#tostartabusiness#2019growingseason
Sara had her port placed this morning. She’s still at the hospital recovering but should be heading home soon because things are going well. Please continue to keep Sara and her family in your thoughts and prayers as she continues her fight against cancer.

Natural foods and rainbows 🌈 ✨ “corners“ 👄 🌱 . This is our Village health food coop. Growing up I remember climbing it’s steep staircase to the “herb attic” with my mom, shopping for medicinal herbs, spices and other natural healing essences. 🌱 It was a magic place where the smiling faces were always eager to share their knowledge on natural healing and clean foods. ✨ It become more than just a “health food store”, it was a community hub, with its giant whimsical bulletin board, advertising everything from crystal dream healing to composting toilet installation. It was our local classified ads. There was always a “free bin” where staff and community would leave an item or two for those that were in need. ❤️ All this while supporting local farmers and herbalists created a truly magical place that is a MUST visit when staying on the Mendocino coast. 🌊🌈✨🌱 . . #mendocinotreasures#villagestories#mendocinohistory#mynaturalfoodsstore#herbalesthetics#victorianrenovation#mendocinocoast#mendocinomagic#mendocinoheritage#myvillage#communitybuilding#ittakesavillage#cornersofthemouth
Don’t we just pop our kids on a bike and they ride off into the sunset? Um, no! I wish it was that easy. I basically used my offspring as little lab rats and found the fastest and most effective way to teach them to ride. Check out my link in profile to see a step by step guide. 🚲🚲🚲 Any of you Mamas use a balance bike for you kiddos?

RSV isn’t slowing her down *too* much! We had a better night, I think thanks to the inhaler. She still woke up a lot, but she took her paci and went back to sleep each time. Also, it’s a little fuzzy, but I don’t think there were any little people in my bed last night. 🙌 Then this morning I spilled my nearly-full cup of coffee and I still haven’t been able to drink the replacement cup I poured. You win some and you lose some, right? Thank you to all of you who have been praying for our sweet Molly and asking how you can help. We definitely couldn’t do this parenting thing without our tribe. ❤️ #momlife#ittakesavillage
I know so many are over these gloomy and rainy LA days. I personally love them; reminds me of home. I actually just love how a good dose of rain can become a fresh start for so many things that need to wash away the old and start off renewed 🌧 . . . Thinking of fresh starts, particularly as we are still into a new year here is another thought & something we are working on in our family. If speaking kindly to plants helps them grow, imagine what speaking kindly to humans can do? 🌱🌿🍃 . . . #bekind#getoutside#stayandwander#kindnessmatters
When we started attending Bridgeway 4 years ago, she struggled so hard with going to church and participating. Now she is closer to Jesus than ever, has memorized the declarations they say in children’s church and says them daily, and has memorized so much scripture. I am so proud of all the growth she has chose into. I am also so thankful for the leadership of @bridgewaykids! They have poured into my kids(and many others) faithfully Sunday after Sunday. It takes a village to raise kids and I am thankful to have them as a part of my village. #church#itsimportant#bridgewaykids#spiritualgrowth#raisethemright#trainupachild#blessed#weloveourchurch#ittakesavillage#imthankfulformine
