As my good friend @phatforfuel said “but I don’t want to wake the sleeping beast” 😂 thankful for my late night lactating buddy chats 🙏 This #breastfeedingmama thing is no joke but I’m so excited to be going through it with another 🤱 and can I just say, it’s been less than a week and I know she is going to rock this thing! 😘 Sending you love and late night encouragement girl!
Abosutly in love with my @nestedbean sleep sack and swaddle 👶🏼 I totally adore how light weight and adjustable they are!
And I can unzip easy with the two way zipper for a diaper change, thank goodness! You hear me momma’s!! 🙏🏻 I’ve been trying to sleep train Amelia Rei and like any new mom I’ve had my struggles let me tell you, when I started using my zen swaddle sack I started seeing a difference in Amelia’s sleep. First an extra hour, then two more hours, omg then the whole night!
Getting real sleep is such a god sent isn’t it?! We recently transitioned Amelia to the zen sack and now are seeing fight to want to be back in the swaddle. Like any normal change in their environment babies will push back. So we are sticking to it! There’s one thing that’s for sure @amelia_jacaruso loves how the sack feels and mimics my touch! Moms who else is sleep training?! 😴

I take advantage of this age when I can dress Sebastian up however I want ! I know when he gets older he’ll probably fuss and puff. 🙄 But i love how he gets so excited when we say “awe” and smile from ear to ear whenever we see him in his cute outfits. As every mother out there, I want him to have a big imagination and this is just a kick start to it. 😏
MOMMAS - do you know that we are already approaching SICK SEASON??? We commit all of our time and energy to making sure our littles have healthy diets, probiotics, and all the other sick-fighting goodies this green earth has to offer, but do we remember to take care of ourselves??? This once-a-day Fire Cider shot will make sure you can stay on your feet 👍🏻 BEWARE though *** not for the faint of heart!!
Social media can sometimes seem like a highlight reel of beauty, perfection, and pure bliss. But that’s not the case behind the scenes - at least it’s certainly not for me. Crap still happens. Stress gets the best of me. And anxiety creeps in hard and fast.
And then there are those moments when life just really, really freakin’ sucks. And I become a puddle of weakness and defeat. I feel the walls caving in, and I wonder how life can be so incredibly unfair.
But it’s in those moments that I’m reminded of my even-more-incredible unwavering faith and community of support. So the bitter and broken often turns into gratitude and graciousness. Because what more could I ask for then my belief and my tribe to help me through life, even on the darkest of days. ESPECIALLY on the darkest of days.
This journey of progress and healing has led me to people and places I’m beyond blessed to know and be. And I’ve loved being able to pay-it-forward by being that person and place for others along the way, too.
And that, my friends, is another big reason I’m here. Doing what I do. Day after day. To empower and encourage women the way I’ve been empowered and encouraged. Because I know all-too-well how it feels to feel powerless.
So reach out, friend. To me or anyone. But don’t go it alone. That’s not what life is meant for.
And remember: even the worst day ends at midnight.
I’m feeling HAPPY & want to spread the JOY!
MY. THREE. FAVORITE. THINGS.
• do you suffer some chronic dry skin- feet, legs, arms..... BODY REPLENISH.
• do you suffer from “tired eyes”... puffiness & dark circles from stress- BRIGHT EYE COMPLEX.
• how about fake or short stubby lashes....LASHBOOST.

Trying something new with my dayplanner. I don't have the right planner for the stickers I have. Busy week coming up...Hotel Party for Rachel, and an out of town funeral to go to. And that is on top of appointments, shopping and errands that made it a busy week already. #plannercommunity#planneraddict#busybusy#momlifebelike
Flashing it back to that time I sat in front of 20,000 people in my own special chair (should I put this on my chair in our new kitchen or...)
Seeeeeriously though there are days that make me just say HOW is this my life? I’m a wanderlust-filled homebody who used to dream and wish and say a whole lotta “one days” when it came to travel. -
Back when I was a teacher, I had to say no to a lot of trips and even had to scrape by (and charge my credit card 😔) to afford a conference that I was speaking at. -
So now to get kickass vacations, that I EARN just for working as hard as I always have feels pretty cool.
And it leaves me asking “HOW is this my life?” from a place of complete gratitude. -
(But there are also nights like tonight when my toddler won’t even let me change a diaper without a massive struggle where I say “how is THIS my life”🤪, but that’s a different story 😂😂😂
