Around 5am Monday morning you can catch a glimpse of the “Super Blood Wolf Moon.” 🌔 Tonight’s, however, really impressed me just as much. * Native Americans and medieval Europeans named January's full moon after the howling of hungry wolves lamenting the midwinter paucity of food. * * * #fullmooncoming #lettheerbequiet🙏🏼 #newmexico #ruralamerica #wolfmoon #thisismymoon #smalltownliving #simplepleasures #howlatthemoon

“Happy now.” Many of us say we will be happy when this or that happens. We miss out on this precise moment. Abraham Lincoln said, “Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” #happynow #trailblazing

What else is there to do on a cold, lazy Saturday than walk into town + check out the antique stores? J really enjoyed the old the old comic books + sports memorabilia. #smalltownliving #lazysaturday #antiquestorefinds #familytime #mytinytribe #candidchildhood #lovingtheordinarymoments #lifewellcaptured #mamaandco

Class of ‘72. Have you ever seen this guy around, his name is Mike Carver.

Today we made a recipe from the @magnoliatable cook book by @joannagaines. The Shepherd’s Pie made our house smell amazing. The subtitle of the book is “A Collection Of Recipes For Gathering.” We made extra that we planned to freeze for our little family. But the nature of the recipe, the fact that it’s a great comfort food for dreary winter days like this, and having a wide open evening, compelled us to actually GATHER with my fam. The cookbook cultivates the desire to share, so sweet!💛💛💛 #magnoliatable #magnolia #magnoliatablecookbook #cbus #lifeincbus #columbusbloggers #columbusphotographer #smalltownliving #parenting #parenthood #motherhood #fatherhood

Took a quick day trip to Greenwood to pick up some Baker's Candies and check out Yoder's Amish Furniture. It was another great day in The Good Life. #theresnoplacelikenebraska #thegoodlife 🌾🌽 #nebraska #smalltown #light #lamppost #village #smalltownliving

Spice up your Saturday night with our Sausage Vodka Pappardelle! Pappardelle, Sausage, Tomato, Spicy Vodka Sauce, Basil, and Pecorino Romano, topped with Crispy Prosciutto... EVERY order of pasta is freshly made when you order—no mushy noodles sitting around for hours on end. It’s Satur-YAY here at Oakfire!
And the answer to our trivia question, “Fergus was originally called...” is..... _ _ _ A. Little Falls.
If you watched my stories earlier today you know that I said I slept until 10 this morning. It’s true. 😂😬 I haven’t done it in years! I went to bed without an alarm and that’s when my body finally said, “We’re good!” . Some of you are probably sitting there rolling your eyes saying, “I have kids. I could never do that.” Or “My body doesn’t even allow me to do that.” But sleeping in late isn’t my point here - It’s balance! . Balance looks different in everyone’s lives. For a momma it might be taking a warm bath after being up all night with a sick kid. If you work on the weekends maybe balance for you is treating yourself on a day of the week. For me it just happened to be a few more hours of sleep after a week of finishing another grad class and getting caught up on a ton of grading! . If there’s one thing my Fit Community has taught me it’s that in order to avoid burnout and frustration, you have to live your life with balance. . Have you ever wondered about what we talk about in my Fit Community? Living a healthy lifestyle is so much more than eating veggies and drinking water. We talk about ALL aspects of taking care of us. Mind, body, and soul! Message me to find out more about my Fit Fam and how to learn what YOUR balance is! 💕💪🏻
When it snows, take a break and dream of wild flowers of summers. I hope you all got the memo from the stories that the Madewell pop-up has been rescheduled. I got an impromptu break and relaxed and took in the beauty of snow. Snow always felt magical to me when falling afresh. And then my friend and I went out and made snow angels. My head is hurting right now because I literally got over the flu. But it's ok. Nothing a good shower with shower steamer won't fix. What did you all do this snow day? . . . . . #greenbeauty #naturalskincare #greenskincare #homestead #homesteadlife #slowlifestyle #offthegridliving #sustainableliving #dreamers #michigan #annarbor #botanicals #essentialoils #herbs #homegrownherbs #ayurvedha #ayurvedhicrituals #beautybox #beautyblogger #preservativefree #plasticfreepackaging #givingbacktothecommunity #smalltowngirl #smalltownliving #organiclifestyle #skincareproducts #skincarenatural #skincareblogger
Quiet night at home since we are getting snowed in ((never happens on a weekend)), soo why not??! PS. It generally takes me at least 6-12 months to finish a bottle of wine. This one was opened at the end of summer. Anyone else the same way??
I almost forgot to take this today 😱 . Today was “balanced” and the slower pace was SO nice. There was a lot of stretching but also some work 💪🏼 . I’m so proud of myself for getting through this week of HARD workouts, for not skipping a day, for eating healthy (but still delicious). . What did you accomplish this week? 💕
Just a little music and skating out back. #lyonscolorado #smalltownliving
We love exploring antiques shops. I find some great old tools to repurpose and I'm a sucker for farmtiques and mantiques. Happened to look up in one shop and saw this guy staring down at me. #freaky #pnw #washingtonstate #homestead #countrylife #simplepleasures #smalltownliving #homestead #countryliving #clown #scary #horror #killerclown #goingtofreakoutmyyoungerbrother
I've never found a small town that made me relax so quickly. If you need a place to unwind, I recommend Darien, Georgia! 🍑  #georgia #peaceofmind #dariengeorgia #travelphotography #travelholic #travel #travels #trees #calmnight #femaletravel #bluesky #smalltown #smalltowngirl #smalltownliving #quietplace
Started the day with finishing my first week of my new program + ended it with a 6 mile hike through Sedona.  #optoutside #idhikethat
I’ve always had a thing for ducks.  When we lived in cities, I used to carry around a bag of duck food in my car in case of random duck encounters and made sure to take our dogs for walks in areas of high duck traffic 😂 I love the way they waddle around — little webbed feet atop baby carrots legs.  Love the strikingly vibrant colors of their feathers and the preposterous sounds that come out of their mouths.  Since we moved to a rural place where we can keep more animals, my duck obsession has subsided some — maybe shifted to become a nascent chicken obsession. ⁣ ⁣ Anyways, was reminded again of duck beauty the other weekend at my in-law’s ranch where ducks, swans, and peacocks roam — a bird lover’s dream!  Would love to try to raise some to waddle around one of our ponds someday 😍 #ducksofinstagram
I love my hometown grocer, Ducketts. It has nothing to do with Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, or any other fancy schwag food retailer. Good people, the food you need, awesome butcher, and a rotary phone for local calls only. Presumably for locals only. 🤠🏔 #duckettsmarket #ducketts #ouray #ouraycolorado #smalltown #smalltownliving #swcolorado
Another glorious summer day in #gippsland  If we can’t have rain, we may as well enjoy the clear days!  Did you know Briagolong is strategically placed between the #alpinenationalpark ,the #gippslandlakes and #90milebeachvictoria  We can be reached from Dargo or Bairnsdale via the scenic Lindenow/Stockdale Road or just 7min off the highway at Stratford. So if you’re heading home today from exploring the mountains or the sea, take the back roads and enjoy a stop in quaint Briagolong. (Swipe left to see map)  Julie is manning the shop today 10-4 so pop in and say hi & see all the new/vintage treasures in store... #alwayslookonthebrightsideoflife #inspiredbygippsland #exploregippsland #discovergippsland #rustemporium #antiquesandvintage #collectablesandcoolstuff #mancavedecor #vintagetreasuresforsale #inspiredstyling #vintageliving #moderncountrystyle #moderncountrystyleinteriors #inspiremehomedecor #myvintagehome #instahome #vintagestore #countryvictoria #countryvictorianhome #letsgosomewhere #countrydrives #taketheroadlesstravelled #eastgippsland #fromthemountainstothesea #smalltownliving #briagolong
One is too young to care what she wears and the other is a full blown threenager who wants to wear only what SHE wants to wear. Which means shiney shoes that are literally falling apart, leggings that she cut a hole in with scissors and a mess of a hair that I finally got pulled up in a pony tail when she was distracted. My mom made me a button to wear when I was younger (so she didn’t have to take credit for my interesting outfit choices) that said “I dressed myself today” and I proudly wore that sucker every day. A remake of that button may be in our future.  I’ve got bigger things to fight about these days than what she puts on in the morning. • Also, how the heck do you actually spell shiney, or is it shiny? Both look completely wrong and apparently no one else in the world is completely confident in the spelling because my google search generated a million results for each... • • • • • • • • • • • • • #jillianandcrew #threenager #toddlerlife #toddlerlifestyle #sistersquad #sisters #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #parentproblems #momlife #girlmama #smalltown #smalltowngirl #smalltownliving #motherhoodsimplified

This was one of my grandmother’s favorite spots. She worked here for many years and knew the owners well. They were huge supporters of her accomplishments. She loved the hardware store and enjoyed helping people find what they needed while chatting up a storm. #alwaysonthego #bettyrobinson #vintagetribune #glenviewillinois #redfoxliterary #olympictrackandfield #trailblazer #smalltownliving #runnersworldmag #run #firstwoman #usoc #usatf #chicagosuburbs
I find so much joy in having my kiddos around during my weekend workout.  They help lighten it up and make me laugh and smile - I mean for the most part. But it brings me a lot of happiness.  And today I had lots of laughs and smiles with my youngest and it felt so good. And although I had moments where I had to take a break - that’s totally NORMAL by the way - I loved every minute of this 20 minute workout!  Don’t let your kids be the reason you choose not to make time for yourself.  Use it as a way to bond with them and make memories. It may not be always fun but you can make the best of the situation and do YOUR best. 💕

When I moved to this great little town I thought my house was perfect... Because i could live on the first floor.  You see at just 27 i was worried about becoming disabled. The arthritis in my back had continued flare ups. I could barely make it out of bed. I had trouble breathing. Macyn had to learn to buckle and unbuckle her car seat as it hurt me to much to lean over and do it for her.  Drs. would only prescribe physical therapy. Which I thought I couldnt afford as a single mom and I didnt have the time to do while i was still trying to work.  I even bought an adjustable bed to see if that could improve my quality of life.  Days were dark. I was unhappy. Coping with the pain in unhealthy ways. Moody and grumpy from the daily struggle at life living at 420lbs. My biggest vice was eating. Food was my friend. I thought I could out eat the pain but nothing else seemed to help. I wasn't even sure how long I'd be able to keep working as each day I'd cry from the pain just from the drive in.  Flash forward 15 months. It's been 13 months since my sister introduced me to a supplement that changed my life.  I think my house is perfect it's got great access to lots of sidewalks for long walks with the dogs. My daughter has her own room upstairs and loves having her own space. I have no issues making many trips up and down the stairs. I have space for my yoga. We have great neighbors. It's really a great place for our family. I've only had 1 arthritis flare up in 15 months and i was able to continue my better health journey during it with pain management techniques.  Whatever challenges your facing today will one day be a distant memory. They may change you and scar you but keep hope. Keep trying new things. Keep moving forward. Dont give up. You never know when your path may change for the better.  #weighloss #weightlosstransformation #betterhealth #extremeweightloss #obese #fitness #foodaddictionrecovery #livingmybestlife #partofmyjourney #fitnesstransformation

Exploring downtown Hartsville today. 😍
Small town living has SO many perks! One being you really get to know your neighbours & are welcomed in to their homes for a tea or a visit anytime you like. There’s always someone to chat to during your daily walks - if their not already outside when you go by-  before long they come out to chat or holler from their window as you pass by. If someone is in need of something they’ve got you covered! Whether that’s neighbouring seniors who are not well and have become shut ins - or a neighbour struggling with recent health concerns -meals are being shared & drop ins are arranged just to brighten their day- not to mention the emotional support that is always a phone call away for any of us who may need it!  When the start of gardening season gets into full swing there’s seeds being swapped & shared and if your lucky you will receive a flat of seedlings already started by a generous neighbour who wishes to share! Then there’s the local food store where everyone knows your name!! ( line from the TV show Cheers!) You get to know your produce workers so well that they often offer you FREE food- today was organic carrots 🥕  This is what my neighbouring community looks like to me-and I can tell you that for the past four years living here full time there hasn’t been a night go by that I haven’t included these folks in my nightly prayers 🙏🏻 Family can come in many forms - and I feel extremely blessed for the family I have gotten to know & love in my community. What does your community look like for you?  #smalltownliving #friendsarefamily #neighboursandfriends #oldfashionedways #faith
All the years of sledding on this hill and I finally got to take my daughter to the hill! #smalltownliving #smalltownprobs #daddydaughter

Today’s workout was called “Balance”. It felt so good to stretch out and recalibrate after a stressful day yesterday. Between issues with the wedding invitations and worrying about having enough hotel rooms, I needed to relax and let everything go. Some things are out of my control, but there are things that I can control and I am choosing to focus on that instead 🙌🏼 Working out is one of my favorite stress relievers and today’s workout was just what I needed 👌🏼 What is your favorite way to relieve stress??
The waterfalls definitely make up for the lack of much else... #chasingwaterfalls #smalltownliving

Hankster had his annual check up this morning. Our concerns were quickly put to rest - his gas is just another perk of the breed 🙈
