Someone once joked that Jeep owners all wave to each other in the road. If this isn’t a real thing it’s about to be cause that’s a community I can get behind! 🙋🏼♀️😂
Pretty excited about being a Jeep person now! 🤓😍
One more day! I've seriously had this pattern in the works for over a year, but life kept getting in the way and it just kept getting put on the back burner. That's why I'm so excited that it's almost release day because this pattern has been a long time coming. #slowgoals#likereallyslow#isthatathing
This summer we found this poor little camel orphaned and dehydrated near Three Camel Lodge. The staff took him in and bottle fed him back to health. He’s now part of a happy little family with his adopted siblings: a calf, a sheep, and a goat, who were in similar circumstances until we happened upon them.
Flat lay for dayzzzz! (Please disregard the disaster that is my messy apartment....#nohomemakerhere )
So excited about my new soft boxes! They came in the other day from amazon and I can't stop playing with them! The light is just so good! Seeing the 4 light bulb sockets in each head makes me realize why my homemade soft boxes were so lackluster, lol. #flatlayfriday#isthatathing
Because sometimes Thursday nights call for a cookie and some Netflix. These @eatnui are actually two cookies per serving and one was plenty. I love how many new products I get to try every month in my @theketobox that help me stay in ketosis. And still feel like I’m living my best life😍#myketolife#ketoaf#cookieandchill#isthatathing#ketomom
Hey hey! We haven't done a #tbt for a while! Check out this little guapo, intently watering our tiny mandarina trees! I always say, "our son was born in Spain" so nonchalantly, because it seems so normal, and yet if I think about it for too long, so surreal. Anyone else ever feel like that? Like you've lived a thousand lives in one lifetime?
And the little man is wearing a vintage "Polar Bear Pop" t-shirt that I wore as a kid. Wait, that makes me sound old... this whole post makes me feel a little beyond my years actually. 🙄
@littleadventuredesigns I really wanted to hashtag #seeyouinbrandonbitches so I could sound really badass but I don't really know anyone in Brandon except @itscharlowdarling and I'm not sure if I know them well enough to say that.
Whaddya think @itscharlowdarling ??
Throwback because #goodgod Down syndrome is named after the man who discovered that it was a disorder back in 1855. His name was Langdon Down. I always sneer that his last name was Down. Why couldn’t it have been Stupendous or Phenomenal or even Smith? Also, you only capitalize the first word in Down syndrome because it is Langdon’s incredibly misleading last name😉#downsyndromeawareness#factthursday#isthatathing
Isn’t it funny how so many of us proclaim a deep hatred for #change but immensely enjoy the transition into #Fall ? What else is Fall except a gradual change from Summer to Winter?
It took me years to wrap my head around the idea that, in fact, change is happening at all times, even when we don’t notice it, even when we aren’t creating it intentionally, even if WE DON’T LIKE CHANGE DAMNIT BECAUSE CHANGE IS SUPER FUCKING SCARY, Summer is marching forward toward Fall. Time and it’s progression give two shits about what you like. Change is a happening. Circle of life shit.
Take a chance and identify something in your life you’d like to change. Then, take another chance and make a change. Make change your roll dog. That’s a saying, right? You’ll always regret the things you don’t do. Rarely the things you do.
💓 MY HEART IS A FLUTTER 💓
Woke up at 6am today with that oh so familiar flutter in my heart & tightness in my chest. Hello anxiety, it’s been a while! 👋🏼These are (some of) the physical symptoms I typically get with anxiety and they usually SEEM TO come out of nowhere. Which probably means they’ve been building for a while but I’ve been blissfully unaware, going about life but forgetting to do that all important check in with how I am and what my body needs. Then bam 💥 it hits.
This morning it is accompanied by another all too familiar feeling. A pain and aching in my legs which is predominantly in my quads/front of my thighs. The pain that feels like someone has taken a grater to my muscles. A pain that makes my legs feel like lead. That not long ago I had every single day and could get no relief from. And which fortunately I no longer get on a daily basis. But anyway here it is, another warning sign that I have overdone it and not been careful enough over the last few days ⚠️.
Yesterday a meeting ran on at work and I did an extra hour on top of my usual part time day. Only 1 hour. Felt absolutely fine at the time. But this morning my body is reminding me that I have CFS & fibromyalgia (lest I forget!), that it has its limits, that I do those set hours for a reason and it is not ready for a longer stint yet, even if I feel in my head that it can. It is my body’s way of saying ‘NOPE’ and ‘ no thanks’.
So today I need to hustle. And by hustle I mean take things a little bit easier! I may do a shorter day at work to take that hour back. I will ensure I completely rest this evening & do some self-care things that are restorative for me. Not sure what those will be today, but I’ve got all day to figure it out and to look forward to it 😊.
