YOU GUYS. Today Riley is NINE MONTHS OLD. Swipe to see how much she has grown!! It’s absolutely crazy to see how little she used to be when you compare the two pictures. .
Time has flown by sooo fast. She is a master crawler, is starting to stand on her own, looooves to eat, has the cutest babble, and sleeps 12 hours at night.🙉❤️. She is my pride and joy. .
Also, be prepared to see multiple posts from our most recent mini session with THE incredible @brynn_wheatley_photography! I am SO in love with the photos she took and you will soon see why and want some of your own!.
I 10/10 recommend using Brynn to capture your moments. Just check out her galleries at www.brynnwheatleyphotography.com and see! I’m literally obsessed with her work.
A little about me (for all you new lovelies) •
I am a stay at home mom/mompreneur. Once upon a time I was a makeup artist and esthetician. I left the industry due to wrist and arm issues. Worked in corporate offices for a couple years 🤦🏻♀️ is all I have to say to that. It wasn't my jam. •
I left the corporate world to help my husband with his design business. Two months after leaving my job, we found out I was already 3 months pregnant(I was one of those pregnancies). •
Life obviously changed. My husband and I decided we'd make some compromises and I'd stay home to raise the kiddos. After about a year I started an Etsy shop selling headbands for princesses. After bout another year I started loosing my passion for my Etsy shop. •
Fast forward, I started a virtual assistant biz (which I still work on). About 8 months ago I began a self care journey and discovered I had a true passion to helping others. It has honestly been the best business - because it doesn't feel like work. I get to help others and myself! What?! •
Oh but I'm also a coffee lover, witty sarcasm runs in my veins and I definitely love me some chips 🤷🏻♀️ it's about balance right 🙊
Tell me a little about you, I'd love to hear it!!! #shareyourjourney
It’s never too early to begin exploring the world. Little nature lovers grow to be BIG nature lovers. ⠀
It’s a big world out there! ⠀
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go next?
Nunca es demasiado temprano para comenzar a explorar el mundo. Los pequeños que aman la naturaleza llegan a ser grandes admiradores de la naturaleza. ⠀
Es un gran mundo!
Si pudieras viajar a cualquier parte del mundo, ¿a dónde irías?

Day 26 of #selfloveseptember is inspiration. For me inspiration is always internal. Rarely do I do anything with the intention of impressing someone else (although, sometimes this is the case, let’s be real.) But most often I am chasing a goal because the very thought of accomplishing it gives me butterflies. It’s a feeling I can’t explain but it’s there, and it drives me.
How about you? What’s your inspiration?

Hoje ela faz 83 anos.
Não foi fácil.
Esse último ano foi sem dúvida o mais desafiador na vida dela e na minha tbm.
Ela, sempre cheia de vida, que vivia pra lá e pra cá, foi, contra a própria vontade, obrigada a parar. E eu recebi um presente que nunca pedi.
Lembro do dia que ela gritou meu nome no quintal falando que ia cair e eu olhei pela janela do quarto, e na mesma hora sai correndo gritei minha mãe e acudimos ela. Fomos para o hospital, foram 13 longos dias de incertezas e noites mal dormidas, mais saímos firmes e fortes.
Quase um ano depois, eu digo, não é fácil. Mas no fim o que pesa é o amor, que faz crescer a paciência e de certa forma entender que pra ela seja até mais difícil do que pra mim.
Hoje eu desejo que, apesar de sermos cada uma um lado da moeda, somos extremamente diferentes, vc saiba que eu te admiro, e que quando eu crescer quero ter a força que vc e mamis tem (isso tinha que ser genético, mais não é). E sim sou chata pq quem ama cuida.
E EU TE AMO!
FELIZ 83 ANOS VÓ!

What do you think of this vase? I’ve already asked some friends, but am curious to hear in general. 😄 it’s a black clay lightly glazed with bit of a deep indigo-ish blue, and yes, this one is watertight.
I’ve got two home with pink eye and the biggest brother left for school assuring us he’d be calling before lunch as he wasn’t feeling well either. I could hear it in his voice....it was deeper, congested. But he was giving the day a try. -
My Raija Papaya is the only healthy one but still someone reluctant on her way out the door. The poor girl was up ‘til midnight doing homework, and I think it’s safe to say she’d rather be here. 👆🏻
Last night was rough. Normally he sleeps a solid 5 to 6 hours, but lately he’s been super gassy. Farting so loud that a tremor (non-earthquake seismic rumbling) was caused.
Anyways, happy Wednesday.

pure sunshine ☀️ on the walk back from penelope’s school drop off, half wondering/half planning what everly’s morning naps will look like once jeff heads back to work.
my grandma kept a written diary day by day so she could look back and confirm dates of things, even as simple as what day she had tea at the nursery with so-and-so ☺️ the moments i’m sharing on @instagram feel to be ‘little’ these days, but i ❤️ this platform as a modern day version of the diary.
