We saw a rainbow for real yesterday and she declared it ‘Santa’s House’. Then we discussed life’s deep questions like ‘Where’s Santa gone?’ And ‘Why?’
.......it’s April and she’s seriously (and out of nowhere) hung up on the Santa thing. I’m a little afraid for December 😂 #holidayenthusiast

This was a great reminder this morning. Sometimes you feel like the world just keeps beating you down time and time again. Stand FIRM on your ground and your belief— be the beautiful, STRONG creature you were created to be. You’ve GOT this, babes. I believe in you 😘
Alright moms (and dads) of littles... I need tips on how save time and money so I spend less time meal planning, grocery shopping and trying to manage a busy household. After a week of lee lee being sick, we were busting at the seams to be outside today. So took advantage of every ounce of daylight. I made dinner with what was in my pantry (frozen meat was part of it) and it was TERRIBLE! So frustrating to waste time, money and food. I’m finally gonna try a food delivery service. Good plate is up first... any other tips or suggestions? And how cute is my Boo? 😊
There is nothing easy about #solomomlife 👊 but longer spring days, sunshine and hammocks make it way more fun! ..
Grateful for 2 healthy boys who love to run and ride and run and ride ... mama, this is why I workout!! 😂

It’s somewhat awkward having this sinsta I’ve done a terrible job of hiding. Knowing old posts reveal frantic mania and numbing depression, it’s exposing a part of myself I was never very good at hiding but still tried to. But I’m in a healing place and I want to keep growing, and I really like having a separate place to show the cool things I see in the world. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
Thinking about starting a weekly hiking group. It would be on a week day so if you are at home with the kids, a day clubber or are skipping work hit me up. Also these probably will be beginner level or hikes that don’t take a long time!!
Did you know that at around 35 weeks, the uterus is stretched to 1,000x it's original size?! 💪
The female body, and the process of growing/birthing life is truly fucking incredible. The little one has already shifted head down, and is in the ready position with 5 weeks left to go. Time is absolutely flying by, and I am beyond ready to meet our newest family member face to face. 💚 #35weeks
Ever feel like #wednesday feels like a Monday😆
My afternoon #pickmeup is a life saver! .
I’ve learned that with the #google search bar & the amazing people that put incredible content in the world 🌎 there is no reason why I should lack education on making knowledgeable, wise decisions! .
Imagine you having a #luxury vehicle that calls for premium gasoline. Your not going to pull up to the gas station and put regular in it. That would be bazaar and not allowing your vehicle to operate at its highest performance & possibly harming it. .
Same with our body! I’m working on treating it better, like the high performance body I’ve been given. To birth & nourish children. To run, climb mountains, to hold kids, to work, to help others, to run with my future grandkids! .
Here’s how you can work on fueling yourself too! A scoop of #proteinpowder loaded with ✅ #antioxidants ✅ #aminoacids ✅ #hormonefree ✅ #wheyprotein ✅ #veganprotein ✅ #naturalflavors ✅ #naturalsweetners ✅ #23gprotein
Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful its ordinary and mundane and routine. Breath in the amazing hold on through the awful and relax and exhale through the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul healing, amazing, awful ordinary life. And that’s breathtakingly beautiful❤️. I’m thankful today was breath taking!!! Never disappointed when I make it to a mountain top!!!!
I’m loving my new simple centerpiece for our table to usher in the Spring season! I love getting creative with mixing up our table’s decor often, probably more often than most lol but I can see this one sticking around for a while!
I found this light natural wood cutting board at @hobbylobby and everything on it at @homegoods ! .
I’ve always loved natural elements brought into our home for decor, so it’s no surprise I love floral arrangements, and natural woods. Another love of mine is candles!!!! I can never have too many in the house and this one in particular really spoke to me that day. The candle is natural and soy and smells AMAZING...all my favorite prerequisites for a candle I will actually buy...but this candle has a wooden lid that says “Best Mom”. I know it may sound silly, but that sealed the deal for me and I knew I had to “bag it up.”.
I love things that encourage me. That lift me up, and speak life. And if something as simple as reading this candle can make me feel even a tiny bit encouraged as a mother, I knew I wanted it in my home! Because let’s be honest, I need the encouragement lol I know I’m a wonderful, awesome, and best Mama to our boys, but who doesn’t need a little cheerleading!!?! Am I right?! 🙋🏼♀️🌿🌟❤️
I hope all of y’all are having the best week as we take on this Wednesday! And one more thing I really want all of y’all to know......
You’re even more amazing than you wish you were!
Advice from a tree:
🌲 Stand tall and proud
🍃 Go out on a limb
🌿 Remember your roots
🌵 Drink plenty of water
🌳 Be content with your natural beauty .
🌴 Enjoy the view!—————————————————————

Mother’s Day is soon approaching and what better way to celebrate the mom’s in our lives than with photos!? 🌿
Denver friends, I’m offering $100 family sessions now through May 11th.
Reach out to me to get more info and to book your session!
Sometimes after I haven’t done something I a long time I forget how much I love it. It’s like that for me with running. I get out of the habit and I just forget. I worry about injury or peeing on myself (let’s be real mamas) or how slow I am. I forget to just get out there and try.
It’s amazing what your body can do with time and proper training. I have met so many inspiring people in our company who have overcome so many things to accomplish their dreams. If you knew you wouldn’t fail would you put yourself out there? What’s holding you back? The first step is usually the hardest but you have to start somewhere. Get out there and take that first step to pursuing your dreams. #pursueyourdreams#shadow#runnergirl
Somedays it's a major struggle but I refuse to let anything derail my progress. I'm determined to hit some really big goals I've set and thankfully I've surrounded myself with a community that is helping me get there. •

The face of infertility. You want to know what it looks like? It looks like all of us. It’s one of those health issues that doesn’t discriminate. And while you possibly haven’t experienced issues with infertility, I can guarantee someone very close to you - right now - is struggling. Most likely, they haven’t even told you. Unfortunately having trouble conceiving brings along emotions of shame and sadness. It’s uncontrollable and that makes it frustrating - infuriating. I’ve been pretty candid with my own journey and that’s because I remember feeling very alone when I was in my darkest moments. I want other women and their partners to know - it’s ok to be sad. And mad. And that there are so many other couples going through the exact issues you are going through right now. Many of us want so desperately to have children and we should be allowed to connect. We can share our stories. Be mad together. Cry together. And friends, those of you who have not had issues, please don’t feel like you can’t talk to us about this. That you can’t tell us your happy news and show us your growing bumps. We LOVE children and we NEVER want others to have to experience the these health issues. Does it make me a little sad when I see another birth announcement - sure but that’s quickly replaced by happiness for the couple. Pure joy that another life will bless that family. A family, that you never know, could also have been struggling too ❤️ much love to all of us this week - #nationalinfertilityawarenessweek - who have experienced infertility. Even more love to the mamas and papas who have yet to hold their baby in their arms. I’m here for you.

Run like the wind, not so much. Run like sausages, this I can do!
I have always wanted to be a stay at home mom. I envisioned my future raising babies and being a homemaker because I truly wanted that. I still want that. But I now know how lost I have been over the years. I started doubting myself and my abilities to do well. I started lowering my expectations of myself because I didn’t want to set myself up to fail.
The reminder that I couldn’t do the hard things. That I couldn’t set goals because why even bother when you know you won’t show up for yourself anyways. Anxiety kept me from finishing my four year degree. Anxiety forced me to stay home, to stay in my comfort zone where I wouldn’t have to put myself out there.
I’ve realized recently anxiety completely screwed up my perception of myself. I no longer thought I was capable of anything challenging. I told myself I’d never have a career and I’d be completely content with staying home and raising babies. But you know what? I’m not content with that. Don’t get me wrong being a stay at home mom is the toughest job out there and I love being able to stay home with my son and I never want that to change and if you are 100% happy and content with doing that then that is amazing! You’ve found your calling and you get to pursue that! But I wasn’t 100% happy with just staying home. I didn’t have anything that I was passionate about other than my boys.
I feel as mothers we need something other than our children that brings us passion. Health and fitness has become my passion. Helping others realize their worth and that they too can find their passion and gain their confidence back has become my calling.
I never enjoyed learning in school. I actually hated school. But I get so excited to learn about health and fitness and learn about growing my business and learn about a healthy mindset. The women on my team are so inspiring and the opportunity they have given me has brought so much confidence to my life. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone. It has allowed me to have goals again, to envision better for myself mentally, physically, and financially. I am forever grateful that this opportunity was presented to me and that I took a chance.
Y’all 🙌. Check out my latest experiment! I love how this turned out! This shirt was hand distressed by yours truly! We can do almost any color with any design including your logo or team!

Where do you feel your best? Is it caked in mud conquering obstacles? Is it learning something new? Is it cooking in the kitchen? Is it being creative? Is it playing with your kids? Is it climbing mountains? Is it digging in your garden? Is it building your website? Is it helping others?
Whatever it is, do it your best. #justdontquit Always keep pressing forward.

I fully believe that one of the greatest gifts I’ve given my children is the example of a mother who purpsues her passions like a motherf*cker. - Cheryl Strayed @hanksssmith#childrenofmountains

Tomorrow at 12pm AKST, the first Cloudberry launch.
Turquoise Stirrups ✨ made with sterling silver and American mined turquoise. When I started making these I knew I wanted some movement, adding the tubing at the top of the stone allows the bottom to move back and forth freely! These beauties were made for dancing 💃

Mother's Day is right around the corner. What is better then giving her the gift of memories. I am offer $100 off gift certificate. .
"My advice is to eliminate ego and expectation. When I eliminate the two, I feel like I take 15lbs off my shoulders. Climbing, yoga, gymnastics, parenting, working on my house, whatever it may be, honestly becomes easier for me. Presence is key. I remember on my first 12a, Pockets of Resistance, I tried it three times that day with the expectation, "I HAVE TO SEND THIS." I didn't send. My son Sebastian was there and three of my best girlfriends. Sebastian was 6 months old and I was a single mother at the time. On the fourth go, I was at the rest, and I looked down at my girlfriends laughing and playing with Sebastian. It melted my heart. I thought to myself, "I am so grateful for these women and my son. I am the luckiest mother on earth." At that moment, I didn't give a $%^& if I sent that route. Slowly, I climbed the route, breathing, and feeling very little pump in my arms. And just like that I was at the chains! I clipped the chains and I cried. Not because it was my first 12a, but because of how much I loved the people below me. The woods and the mountains are my sanctuaries. Being outside gets me through my funkiest of all funks. That's my greatest value I would want to pass down to my son"
Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story from your interview with @sierrahaven11 & photo with us 📸@roarkfitness! You captured a beautiful & proud moment. We love seeing our mama crushers kicking butt and taking names 😍
