That hair! That smile! That adventurous spirit! Happy birthday to my Cadence Monkey. If your Uncle Vinny were here, he would call you a ragamuffin (but just because you look just like a little me!) I wish so many incredible things for you, and I know that you'll make remarkable things happen in life. (You already do!) #middlesistersarethebestsisters#cadencemonkey#niece#myheart#adventure#mimi

Doing a “bridesmaid reveal” (where the bridesmaids see the Bride for the first time, all done up in her wedding dress) has become one of our favorite parts of the timeline. This picture explains it all. #myheart 📸:@truegracephoto
My heart is aching today. My Queen...my favorite voice of all time...has left us. Words can’t express the true joy and awakening she has brought to my life. I learned so much about music from the countless hours I have spent studying her. The soul she was able to supernaturally conjure for every single syllable she sang was unmatched in her time, and I believe it will remain unmatched. Naturally, she’s an Aries. 😉
I am incredibly blessed to have witnessed her gift live from the second row of Radio City Music Hall on February 18, 2012...just a month shy of her 70th birthday. Here is just one of the songs she sang that night. She didn’t just sing it...she LIVED it and belted it from the depths of her truest soul! I am so thankful for the remaining clips I have to remind myself of how brilliant that night actually was, because my head was spinning the entire time.
Aretha, I hope you have found your way to a heavenly choir and are belting it out with a complete voice and a perfect body. You will forever live on in our lives. What a legacy and meteoric influence you have left behind! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Really shouldn't have favorites in the family but I do she's my absolute favorite cousin of all. She's always been so understanding and patience with me. She's always encouraging me to never give up on my dreams. She's never turned her back on me not once!! I'm so blessed to call this beautiful Girl my cousin.. we are family and that's fatcs it's never going to change because we are family and cousin fo life!!! Love you cousin 😘😘😍😍💕💕💕💕💯💯💯 #cousinfinerthanyours#Myheart#Familyfirst#Bloodcousins#OurBondISThickerThanWater#FinecousinThursday

I am beyond proud of you and your achievements and will always be here to support and protect you. The love I have for you is unconditional and I am so excited to see you grow into the amazing man I know you will be!! HAPPY 18th LUKEY!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Let talk about it:
Just as much as body shaming pisses me off because everyone feels like they should have an opinion on how someone should look, what’s ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.🙄 Over weight, skinny, strong or build like a brick house. Fuck the opinions do you 🤙🏼 let’s talk about mom shamming.... Nothing gets under my skin more than mom shamming and not just non parents judging parenting (they don’t understand so it’s just ignorance) but moms placing judgment on other moms... 🤬 oh good god here we go 😲
WHY ON EARTH IS THIS EVEN A THING!? Why do other moms feel like this is okay?
No mom is ever perfect, no one has the perfect child or life we are all dealing with our own shit. From day one I Deni Atherton didn’t want to be a mom. Yup, that’s right the moment I found out I was pregnant my thoughts were:
I wasn’t meant to be a mom.
I’m not supposed to be a mom.
This wasn’t supposed to happen. (All very selfish thoughts but before having a child you’re a selfish, self centered human. Doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from. You only had to think about yourself, not a family)
After having Logan at a very ripe age of 24. I was lost as fuck, scared and confused. Went from living with my parents to pregnant and living in a trailer (yup). To losing the trailer to moving in with Logans grand parents, to moving back home with my parents to moving into my own place. Guy I’ve been through some SHIT, Shit that most people never have to go through. Does this make me an awesome person or mom? No. I can’t tell you how many nights I cried myself to sleep thinking I was a bad mom. (No sympathy please, I don’t feel bad for myself) No one on this earth can take away the love I have for my little one or let me forget that I am ‘young’. Guys if you only KNEW the stank looks I still get when I tell people I’m 28 with a 4 year old. ‘You’re a Baby who had a baby’ ‘oh you must live at home!’ ‘You’re so young’. Well even on my darkest days I’ve worked my ass off to get to this point. I would NEVER judge a mom for putting her best foot forward and make strides to better herself for herself and her family. Lift each other up instead of tearing each other down ✌🏼 #momlife
