If you know me, you've probably heard me talk about @delightandbe ❤ And if you've heard me talk me about it, you know how passionately i love it.
The people within this community have captivated me. I was added to the group a little over three years ago having NO idea the life change it would bring to me. The people in this group have quite literally mended my heart back together and have pointed back to Christ EVERY single day. The relationships I've built and the love i receive is something i can't aduqetly put words to..... I've been able to attend three different Delight events this year...one in April for the annual retreat, one in July for the East Coast meet up in Chapel Hill, NC, and a workshop at the Delight house in October. I've met SO many girls this year from all around the country.
While i was there in October, I got an inside look at the sacrifice that Kristin and her family undertake everyday. It's A LOT. and that's being modest. This one of the times we have the opportunity to give BACK!! If you didn't know, Delight & Be is a 501 c3 non-profit. This means that at the end of the year, they have non profit insurance. It cost nearly $4,000.... If you're an individual or a company who is in a position to give, I would be SO grateful for any amount you can donate because we have a donor who is MATCHING every dollar today. Which is HUGE. so even if you give $10, it will be turned into $20 ⚡link in my bio
This has been the BEST day! This gym is more than a gym, it’s a home and I have been blessed to meet some GREAT people! Three of those people will be moving soon and we celebrated today! Thank you for sharing your family with us and being AWESOME!! The conversations have been everything from serious, happy, sad, to hilarious! I think we’ve learned from each other...sad to see them leave, but excited for their new adventures and happy for the new friends they will meet!
We also got a visit from a beautiful ray of sunshine and new friends, too! Everyone made Drake a card so we are off to a good start with paying it forward! The smallest things can have the biggest impact!! #wrtslakecharles#familygym#iwillforeverstalkyoursocialmedia#communitylove#drakestrong#spreadthelove#lovebig#bigastheworld

We'd like to share with you their inspiring love story 💞
"Flying to Buenos Aires to let Fabulous Weddings plan our wedding made for a uniquely wonderful and adventurous experience! When we decided to trade indecision and compromise for the guilt of disappearing on a destination wedding, we leaned on our Fabulous Wedding Planner, @laetitiaorsetti , to do all the heavy lifting.
Now that we’ve both said I do, we couldn’t be happier in feeling like we made the right decision! The memories of our wedding week are packed with adventure and travel – polo playing, tango dancing, new food, good wine and South American sunshine. Fabulous Weddings took care of everything!! We got help outfitting ourselves, booking incredible photographers and lining up activities based on our interests.
Thanks to Fabulous Weddings we had a fabulous lesbian wedding and experienced the very incredible and accepting culture of Argentina. Gay weddings in Buenos Aires feel like true celebrations of love! Laetitia Orsetti and the people of Buenos Aires gave us the party our love for each other deserves. We hope that everyone getting married in the US will eventually feel such acceptance and celebration on their big day ✨
I’ve always been told that I deserve the love I give.. and most people that know me well know that I would do anything for anyone, and that what you see is what you get and most importantly I love bigger than anything else.. ..
And they were right.. when you don’t settle and you find someone who loves you as much as you love them everything clicks and it’s the best feeling in the world.. ..
I am so very thankful for John, Isaiah, Lauren and Morgan and the love I am able to show them and the love they show me daily.. ..
Seriously I cried real tears when these were delivered.. I’m blessed with the best!!!
Sometimes God overwhelmes me with such loving friends and family.... the trueness of having so many supportive people around whether big or small makes my heart do ballerina twirls 💞
This young gal in the pic with me is a hard one to win over..... I can’t tell you just how blessed I am with her and other Littles to fill the void of not having grands yet! Lol swipe to see my beautiful great nieces who spent the weekend with me and one who will when she gets a bit bigger 😍😍

You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere. 😬
Why did you spill the coffee?🤔 “Well because someone bumped into me, of course!” No! Wrong answer... You spilled the coffee because there was *coffee* in your cup.
Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled *tea*! *Whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.* Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. _It’s easy to fake it, until you get rattled._ *So we have to ask ourselves… _”what’s in my cup?”🤔 When life gets tough, what spills over?
Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?✨ Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions?
You choose! 💚✨🌟💫🙏 #choosejoy#choosegratitude#gratitude#love#designyourlife#goodvibes#chooseyourreality#createyourreality#goodvibes#loveBIG#liveBIG
It has been such a joy to work and do life with these ladies this year! 😍
Santa and sweet Mrs. Claus came to help us celebrate and in doing so we were able to share our ‘extra’ with some very special kids. 🎁
Our cups are now full and we ready to take on 2019 and show others how to love extravagantly while doing more of what they were created to do. 💪🏼 Thank you @kwaress1 for your vision, leadership, and love! Best Nation ever 🙌🏻 #yummyfood#cuteservers#bestyear#createdformore#loveBIG#christmas2018#arbonne
✨✨✨It's my birthday tomorrow and I know that typically as the numbers on the years of our lives grow bigger we're encouraged in so many ways, some overtly, but in many ways much more subliminally, to love ourselves less. We're told that our value decreases as the life clock increases. This culture tells us again and again that what defines your worth as a person is how youthful you appear on the outside. How many dollars you have in your bank account. How much stuff you have and the kind of car you drive and how many likes you get and how many followers you have and any other superficial factors that belong to a dying paradigm that I want to see demolished. As of tomorrow I'll have been blessed to be alive on this planet for 38 years and I know that especially as a woman it may be expected that I begin to fear the passing of time, to start ignoring my birthday or even dreading it but you know what. No fucking way. I have never been more in love with myself and my life as I am right now in this moment. I have never been more grateful for every single outward sign of age, for every line on my face because it means that in my life I have smiled a lot. It means I laugh a lot. I have people in my life who make me laugh so hard it feels like I've just finished an ab workout and I have tears rolling down my cheeks. When my boyfriend looks at me and I can see everything in his eyes, it makes me smile so hard my entire face crinkles up. Today I'm looking back through the chapters of my life and fuck I am so damn grateful for every single experience that brought me to exactly where I am right now. Any wisdom I have uncovered within me was only found because I dug it out of every single struggle and heartache and moment of self doubt and confusion that I've had. I wouldn't change any of it. To everyone in my life, thank you. I love you and I am so grateful for each and every one of you. What a time to be alive❤️💗💕

Sometimes my mother asks “don’t you ever think about how much easier your life would be if you didn’t get a dog?” And she’s right. My life would be so much easier. I could come and go as I please, I could take off for a weekend no problem, I wouldn’t obsessively count the hours I’ve been away from Emery to determine if I can fit one more errand in or if that’s animal abuse 🤷🏻♀️ The dog mom guilt is real. But so is the joy.
You can’t fill your life with all things easy or convenient and claim that you’re living. You’ve got to chase joy. To be on your toes a little. And boy does this derpy faced pupper do that for me🥰
