LAST DAY... .
But I want to stay here even longer and carry on playing silly games with this dude! The holiday pictures may carry on for ever... I’ve fallen for this place!
So yesterday I took my two little cheeky faces to Dover so they can go and spend some time with their daddy and grandparents in France. The moment I said goodbye to them was the moment I realised how much I am actually gonna miss them! All my "me time and the endless list of to do things" suddenly went out of the window and I just wanted them to stay. 💔
So probably you will be seeing lots of photos of them and hear a lot of missing stories the next few weeks 😁😁 Have a lovely Wednesday!! 😍😍
Come and fly with me 🦋
Als bijen op honing, zo kwamen de lori’s op Thije af 😂 Ze vonden het wel prima op zijn hoofd en bleven pikken aan zijn gel. (Swipe for more)
De Orchideeënhoeve is echt een aanrader om eens te bezoeken. Hebben jullie ook nog tips voor leuke, niet te massale familieuitjes?
As some of you saw on my instastory, we are now traveling in Denmark 🇩🇰. We will take a road trip from north back to Copenhagen for next few days. Keep checking the instastory for all the shenanigans. 😉
Someone told me we only get our kids for 18 summers... When I thought about that it completely changed my perspective. A melancholy feeling set in when I realized how short a time that actually is. Hold your kids tight, listen to what they have to say, be excited with them. My littles are so full of awe and wonder and show excitement over almost everything. I know it’s flipping difficult when you’ve had it, you just want a quiet room and need some space to yourself. But I want to be the mom I wish I had growing up ❤️
I’ve had so many questions about @trunkisouthafrica , ever since Rosie debuted it for our trip to England in April. Doesn’t that sentence look like I’m such an influencer diva?!😆 But for reals, people have been asking about its storage space, what age it works best from and where they can buy one and I’ve tested it out for a long-haul flight and for a holiday break in the WC. The fact that it doubles up as a toy that can be ridden or pulled along is probably why it is so popular - the awesome Unicorn design is the icing on the cake. Read about how it helped us on our family getaway last month, maybe it’s what you’ve been looking for? (link in bio)
Sometimes we just have to accept things for what they are. At what point did you give up trying to be a perfect mama? Anyone else threaten their kids with the police at 3 am? Please say yes. #findingthemagic
Exactly what IS the penalty if I were to keep them out of school (starting this week) until after Labor Day? Anyone?
SUMMER. WENT. TOO. FAST.☀️🧜♀️😩
Who wants to help me make picket signs in protest? #thefabmom

A year before this photo was taken on the sandy beaches of San Onofre I sat in the tub curled up in a ball with my head between my knees as the water from the shower head came crashing down upon me.... balling .
I was so discouraged. Almost a year had passed since I miscarried and another month had gone by that I would not be with child. Another month of an empty promise and putting on a brave face as I smiled at all the pregnant women I would pass by.
I felt alone in that moment even though I had the most loving and supportive husband, family and friends by my side. But I was alone in my thoughts. The thought that this may never happen for us. Maybe I would never have the chance to have my own family and be a mother of my own.
But as I sat there crying I knew I wasn’t alone. I knew that God was with me. I felt His presence as if He were there crying with me. This strong desire to have children burned so deep inside me, but would my role as a mother ever come to pass?
Shorty after, I went to a fertility specialist to try and get some answers, but everything came back normal. Our next step was going to look into having an IUI procedure, but then it happened. A month later I saw the word “pregnant” digitally appear on a pregnancy test. I couldn’t believe it. I had my suspicion, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up.
So here I stand, in this photo, staring down at my growing belly just one month shy of meeting our little rainbow baby. Four weeks away from my dream coming true... Becoming this baby’s mommy. #lexi_lee#ourlittlerainbowbaby#dreamscometrue#ownyourstory#beautyoutofashes#godisfaithful
This little boy:
-Is extremely excited about spaghetti.
-Attempted to stand without any support at all tonight... in the bathtub of all places... and succeeded for just a quick moment.
-very sweetly took the washcloth from me to wash my face 😍
It may not make sense now but it will become obvious.
Over the years I focused my time on what people are going to say, What people will think.
In that time, productivity was down my vision was sketchy, It was a mediocre commitment towards my future. I wasn’t a happy chap.
Everyone has a quote everyone has these motivational sayings but are they proactive on them ?

✨Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations✨
A reminder to me that I am STRONG as a mother (of two beautiful babies) 💞 I’ve been totally transparent.. You all know I’ve struggled a LOT this month. My default is to go into hiding and let the sadness takeover... So I’m leaning hard on my support system this month!! My community has been there for me 💯 percent!! Do you have that?!? We can do so much when we lean on each other!! .
It took me way too long to find my #momsquad 💕 I want to share this beautiful journey with you! We have to be real and open and vulnerable sometimes.. starting on Monday, August 20th, a select group of gals will join me on the journey. It’s all about our wellbeing— health, fitness, and heart and mind❤️ let’s grow better together! Message me or comment below.
My bug is mastering the selfie smile 😂 Good thing, because we document a lot of our lives with selfies 💋 When i first started to Coach, I felt weird about posting so much on social media. I hardly ever used social media. Now, I’m thankful for all the pics and beautiful memories 💕
In a world full of incessant noise and looming chaos, sometimes it’s worth driving 146 miles away from home to tangibly feel a moment of peace and quiet.🌲🌊😍 // “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.” ~ Psalm 46:1-5 (ESV)
