You are ENOUGH!
Take a deep breath today and let that sink in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are enough
In this season
With all your “issues” and quirks ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cheers to living from a place of enough today!
When you stop for a minute and enjoy the view. 🌅 The sunsets lately have been breathtaking! 💕
We all are busy. We all are go, go, go, every damn day!! Maybe you work 8-5 or 9-5, come home to go to a child’s game, make dinner, bedtime routines? Just to wake up and do it all over again the next day. .
We are always going to be busy!!! Each season of life is a new kind of busy. 👶🏻👧🏻👩🏻
Those you see who workout on a daily basis? They’re busy too. The difference?! The want it bad enough to figure out a time slot to get it done. It all comes down to HOW BAD DO YOU REALLY WANT IT? Excuses don’t get it done. 30 minutes is all it takes. The current program I’m doing is only 4 days a week!!! That’s 2 hours out of your entire week!!!! If you can’t find that, then you really don’t care and you really don’t want it 🤷🏻♀️
I always wanted to pause to watch the sunset but when it came down to it, I always chose something else to do instead. Things rank importance differently to everyone. Sunsets are on my list but not necessarily high on my list. Last night I made it a priority. 💕
🍂 To every thing there is a season...
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.
Смотришь по сторонам и обмираешь от красоты. Кто бы думал, что навязшие в зубах со школьных лет строки про «унылую пору – очей очарованье» – вдруг почувствуешь всей душой.
Наш арт-директор Таня Чулюскина @sherry_bobbins привезла нам немного в карманах сегодняшнего дня - запахов, звуков и фотографий из Абрамцево. Положим в копилку на следующий год. Будет наш «золотой фонд», гербарий, секретное хранилище, если вдруг такая осень в следующем году не выпадет.
Продюсер Seasons Project Катя Фурцева @fotofurez и её дочь Женя провели тест-драйв нескольких моделей ланч-боксов и готовы поделиться своими находками и лучшими впечатлениями.

Can she possibly get any cuter?? She just LOVES being on daddy's shoulder. It's fall but doesn't feel like it quite yet! We just got back from a trip to AZ (which is why Ive been kind of MIA) I'll write a blog post on it later. We're used to being more North so fall is taking on a new meaning. Speaking of fall...have you entered the giveaway yet?? Check out my last post!! ❤️
even in this season
she will remember just how far
God has brought her
and all of the beautiful things
He will continue to do
and even in subtle things
she will see progress
she will find beauty
she will see His hand
for she knows
He is working
and she is growing
and He is still leading her
where she needs to be...
29 trips around the sun 🌞🎈so incredibly grateful for all of the love I’ve felt today! This year, I’m choosing to celebrate all the abundance and amazing people I have in my life, as well as everything I’ve worked through, accomplished, and experienced 💙
If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know that these are three of my favorite places to pose (besides the woods!😁) This is my room..my space! It’s quiet, peaceful, and private...everything a mom of many needs to have. I learned after my 5th child and wearing my nerves very thin, that I must prioritize “me time.” It wasn’t easy as little fingers would squeeze themselves under the door and little faces would lay on the floor looking under trying to tell me something that “absolutely could not wait!🙄😅And I often wondered why I even tried to be alone because at times I’d end up more exasperated than when I first sat down. But children grow up, privacy gets easier, and the things that caused you the most exasperation later give you the greatest laughter. So hang in there mamas! Seasons change and there’s something amazing about overcoming challenging times..you’re left with purpose, meaning, and strength found you didn’t know you had!❤️#growthroughlife#seasonsoflife#momlifeisthebestlife#wisconsin#fitmom#fitness#fitover50#fitover40#postpartum#wingitmom#fashion#inspiration#momofmany#gratefulheart#lifeisgood
So one more week in an arm sling. My arm is coming along but still have a lot of pain in between my scapularies and bicep where they connect. Just had to go through the agonizing process of kicking the “opiates” from my system, made me sicker than sick 🤮🤢 i wont go into detail how sick. This season has led me to depression and weight gain , BUT , i am a fighter and have gone through way way worse in life. Thank you to those of you who have shown me support and checked on me, it means the world. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. #iamstrong#injurysucks#overcomingdepression#keepgoing#almostthere#gratitude#seasonsoflife
Sometimes it feels like all we're handed is a fist-full of thorns and scraps of what we once had in abundance. You remind yourself of the nature of seasons and resist the enemy voice that speaks of scarcity and drought. And you hope and pray and believe and work and persist and speak faith with each sunrise and peace with each sunset. Until one morning you wake up and see growth in your garden. It doesn't look at all like what you remember planting...it's more beautiful. More rewarding. There are still thorns, but they hold meaning and purpose now. And the meager scraps have somehow turned into just enough. Which feels like bounty.
As parents, we all struggle differently. For some, it's finding the right balance between work and home. For others, it's getting their child to eat healthy foods (or eat anything at all.) Some parents find it challenging to let go of the ideas of what they envisioned parenthood would be like and learn to accept reality versus what they had imagined. Still others find it most challenging to teach patience and peacefulness when you yourself seemingly have very little of those qualities (real talk: this one is me daily!)
There's truth in the saying, "This too shall pass." We all weather these seasons of parenthood, and those of life, at different times, but we all go through them in our own ways.
I guess my point is to reach out to someone when you're having a hard time because there's somebody out there who can identify with what you're going through. A kind word, a listening ear, a prayer, and a hug can go a long way, especially when you feel like you're buried under the leaves. Find someone to help you rake them, or even better, throw them up in the air and let God take it from there. •
It is the heart that knows your soul. It will never betrayal you, it is simply guiding you down the paths you’ve chosen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes these paths feel never ending, full of resistance and pain. Other times, they feel expansive, clear and joyful. Instead of labeling a path one way or another, just experience it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eventually you’ll find your way back💓
Quote by @sidd_long
Change ... my heart braces and my toes curl under at the word. ...
My mind flashes images of storms that tear apart life. I want to navigate predictable, controllable journeys. I want to measure the rain and number of lightening strikes - to make sure it is not excessive, to make sure I can stand strong. ...
... But, sure as the sun change will come. ...
Jesus told his disciples, “It is not for you to know the special days or the special times which the Father has put in His own power.” ...
It is not for us to know the full result of the storms of change or when they are to arrive or how long they will last. ...
The Lord has brought me through many a storm, kicking and crying and dragging my feet the whole way. I never like the storm but I am always thankful for the good that can come from it. ...
But, when the thunder ends and eternal blue comes shiny through, it is as if to congratulate the one who endured. It greets the one who traversed , who made it through to the other side of darkness. “Well Done” ...
And, On the other side is change. When we see the change, still wet from the rain we may recognize that we have arrived in a place we had hoped to one day be. ...
Maybe it is in maturity, or Devine introduction, or finding your passion, or calling, living with less stuff and more contentment. ...
Change... it is going to happen. And in it, I am learning to hold on to Christ with more peace, more joy, and more kindness to others whose storm is still raging. ...
When autumn comes around it brings me back to life. I love summer time and everything that comes with it. But by the end of summer, I’m bored and totally over the heat. I love the change of season. With each new season it feels like a new beginning! And I have some pretty amazing things that are about to happen over the next couple of months. 🍂
This little guy went to a new home today. Due to a lot of schedule changes over the next year we are closing down the animal side of our homestead. We plan to get back into all of this when our schedule allows, but for this season we need simplicity. 😪🐓🐇😢 #homesteading#hardthings
Some time away with my favorite people. When the kids ranged from infant to 5, I wished for 30 minutes of quiet, alone, without worrying why they were quiet. These days, I wish for 30 minutes with them together, just to listen to them talking to one another. #seasonsoflife#momofadultchildren#lovethislife
Praying today that you find joy in whatever season you're in today. .
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NIV)
Today we find ourselves in a season of content, yet a season of waiting. What season are you in today? How can we pray for you?
Море нам показало другой Стамбул и познакомило с Принцевыми островами. Вода Босфора оказалась бирюзовой, а Мраморного моря - синей. Город с воды похож на гигантский живой организм, в котором по кровеносным сосудам и артериям движутся корабли, паромы, лодки, парусники и теплоходы.
На Бююкаде (самом дальнем из четырёх островов) можно есть турецкие пончики (если быть честной, то они называются, прости господи, - "дамские пупки"), запивая чаем, и наблюдать за вхмыленными и худыми лошадьми в повозках. Остров застроен деревянными домами, заселён котами и засажен деревьями. И если вдруг нестерпимо захочется уехать на край света, то я знаю, что нужно делать и даже могу показать дорогу к умопомрачительной смотровой площадке.
P.S. В сторис можно рассмотреть крутые дома и виды с этого острова. Край света тоже покажу, но позже.
А рассказать, как и зачем плыть на Принцевы острова, кстати?
I love when God shows you that he sees you and knows just what you need to hear💗
This morning before our devotion, I was praying for our day, for my husband and that God would show us he sees us and our faith. Faith is hard when in the midst of certain seasons right? I mean life has blessings too but we have seasons of growth where our faith is increased and we are strengthened all around.😉 So today we talked about BONES! Bones are strong, they protect our organs, they are the home for important blood cells, they give us structure and form. SUPER important right?? Well, we also have BONES of FAITH!! I love this concept!! Just as our bones give us structure to stand tall and strength, the bones of our faith when kept healthy by prayer, being in Gods word and spending time with other Christ followers, give us important strength and structure. They keep the soft insides of our heart and soul safe and when in a hard season of life, the bones of our faith keep us standing tall. They keep us moving in the right direction and are HUGELY important as well💥
Faith is what drives this passion inside of me y’all. Without it, I would not be able to inspire you. I wouldn’t be sitting here teaching my children at home. I wouldn’t have strength in my body or soul. Choose faith to stand tall in whatever season of life you are in today my friends! God sees us all!!💗

So here it is... all 10+ pounds 🤦🏻♀️
I told y’all I was gonna take a pic
Meet my pants that don't fit 👖
Definitely not the greatest feeling
Certainly not the most flattering 🤦🏻♀️
Let me also say, I have ZERO regrets on how I got here! But I did just get real with my no longer 20 something self and the candy and the pizza and all the extra bullshit I enjoyed! #sugaraddict
I know what to do. And in 21-30 days, I'll be back in the pants because it is possible to drop a pant size that fast! Not because I'm obsessed with a certain size or physique... but because the balance was out of whack in a direction of brain fog, not feeling my greatest, laziness was setting in, yadayada anyone else relate?!?
So if I’m obsessed about anything... it’s feeling AWESOME... that’s the goal.
I know there are at least 5 ladies who aren’t wanting to feel awesome! I also bet there are a pair of 👖 screaming “wear me” in your closet! That’s why you need to do this thing I am calling Operation Lean the F out with me!! Link is in my bio! 😘
PS I am not your girl if you want deprivation and elimination of fun fall flavors and food groups!
We are eating and eating well. What we will do will be something you can put on repeat because I am so not the girl that loses and gains the same damn 10 lbs, that ‘ish is not what it's about! #operationleanout
Not everyone can be happy on a gorgeous day like today, I appreciate that wholeheartedly and it never was, never is and never will be my intention to come across as patronising when I seemingly ‘preach’ about being and staying positive and cherish life. Far too many of us are unfortunate, they DONT lead a content and happy life because they have been dealt with bad cards. They are struggling on a daily basis, smiles are being replaced by streams of tears. How and why should they have appreciation for the little things in life when all they experience is sorrow, hardship and despair. But then again, when life comes down on you so brutally devastating then only hope can safe us at times. Never give up hope therefore, because, as we all know, there IS and WILL BE light at the end of the tunnel......regardless of how endlessly long that tunnel might appear to be.
Я мерзлявая, детство в Норильске дает о себе знать, тепло я очень ценю...шерстяные носочки и пара колготок сидят у меня в крови..
А вот Диманчик теплокровный, он и курточку зимой может не застегивать 💪🏻...
Это я к чему...одеяло у нас одно...и когда перед сном я зарываюсь в свитое гнездо, то он верещит, отодвинься от меня, ты такая жаркая...в то время, когда я неся свое тепло в холодных ногах пытаюсь растопить тот самый лед, он, понимаешь ли недоволен....
Как видите у нас мало общего...трое детей разве что)))
А афигенское платье от @maya.dresss
Ношу его не снимая уже несколько дней!! Может поэтому он недоволен 🤔да не, фигня, он всегда такой😄
I came across this from someone I follow on IG and it spoke to my heart. I literally couldn’t have said it better myself. Sometimes it’s comforting to know that you’re not the only one going through a tough season ❤️
“I’m going through a tough season of uncertainty, unfulfillment and feeling ungrateful. I’m going to be honest. I hate this season. Seasons come and go to help us become stronger, love deeper, appreciate more and find our purpose. I’m praying this season passes soon so I can get back to my old self or find my new self for that matter.”
"Ес, плиз, добро пожаловать, велкам, кебаб, туркиш ти, хош гяльдиниз, пахлава, бир, плиз, да, Раша, найс плэйс", - произносит очередной стамбульский зазывала, приглашая зайти в кафе, и мне становится очень смешно от этого набора разношерстных фраз.
Парни, которые стоят у входа и зовут заглянуть на огонёк, похожи на продавцов с Алиэкспресса, которые в описании товара используют все знакомые им русские, английские и китайские слова: "Хороший ремень стиль фэшн купи этот товар чипсы памятник халва мужской с дырочками я лучший продавец панда брюки привет". Ну все же сталкивались, да?
Я держу себя в руках до последнего, но как только вижу очередного налаченного турка, вдыхающего побольше воздуха для произнесения этой тирады, становится очень весело. Главное - ничем не выдать в себе русского и прикинуться глухонемым, иначе он прибавит к этому набору что-то вроде: "Москоу, девушки, проходите, пожалуйста, самое вкусное тут, добрый день, здравствуйте, лэйди плиз, есть вообще всё..." Один турок оказался настолько предприимчивым, что бежал за нами с меню в руках, указывал на блюда и просил ответить: всё-таки, мясо или рыба.
Быть может, это и есть турецкое гостеприимство?
Next week will mark THREE YEARS since making a decision that terrified me, yet is the reason I've become who I am today. How has it been 3 years already?! 🤯
I've had to dig deep to grow my character and determination.
I've come to realize that "motivation" will come and go and we just have to make it happen no matter how we feel.
I've learned how to stay >>somewhat<< organized amongst the chaos of mom life.
I've built 100s of relationships - some of which felt natural from the start and others that required some extra love and attention to grow and flourish.
I've had to willingly step outside my comfort zone more than I ever thought I would.
I've had to tackle the lies I've believed about myself for so many years. It's a hard thing to do but the FREEDOM is incredible!
I've learned that it's okay to follow a dream/vision that not everyone will understand; if God gives you one, you chase it down and lean on Him every step of the way. 🙌🏼 I've been learning how to think of myself less and love and care for others more.... without actually ever forgetting to care for myself.
Different seasons of life bring different perspective and focus, but through these last three years I've seen a thread of something beautiful weave it's way into my story.
It's crazy to think how much has changed over these past three years and becoming a coach was a scary and SUPER rewarding adventure that I chose to embark on 💕
And as I am on the brink of a new season of life, adding a 3rd baby into our family, I can't help but be extra excited for how it will mesh with my coaching business.
Because self care and healthy habits are for EVERYone and every season; and the nutrition plans, workout programs, and community support we offer can be life-changing if you're willing to take the leap 😍
If you've ever considered making some healthy changes to your habits, we should chat! There is something for everyone and I'd love to help you! 💕
Fall is my favorite season. There is something so powerful and beautiful about the leaves changing colors, showing the deeper layers of themselves and letting go. The trees transform before our very eyes. It’s preparation for the completion of a cycle. Not so much death, but rebirth.
This reminds me of my own transformation. It gives me strength and permission to also let go of the old story lines and things that are no longer serving me so I can write my own new chapters.
I’m so excited for all this season has to bring.
Happy fall everyone!
Have you ever asked yourself what is important to you? I used to think it was important to have 6 pack abs, look like a Victoria secret model at all times, and have my ish together by the time I was 26 which OBVIOUSLY meant I needed to be married, own a home && have 3 kids 🤦🏽♀️ I am now 30 and am still NO WHERE near where I thought I would be. & you know what? That is PERFECTLY FINE! ••
We as women set such HIGH expectations for ourselves that we often end up disappointed and feel like we failed. We tell ourselves we are not good enough or worthy because we haven’t hit these milestones that society has set for us. We end up playing the comparison game to others lives, and that just makes you feel worse✖️
Well I say TO HELL WITH THAT! You’re not married?! That’s cool. You don’t own a house with babies running around everywhere?! Totally fine. You don’t have a 6 pack to flaunt in seemingly useless crop tips?! More power to you!(seriously though, WHY are crop tops a thing, let alone expensive? They are half of a shirt🧐)
All that TRULY matters is that you are showing up everyday for YOURSELF to reach your own goals that are important to you.
What’s important to me now?? Being strong (physically and mentally) even if that means not having a 6 pack.
Building a lifestyle by MY design that our future family will benefit from.
Growing my relationship with myself and my husband through personal development. &&Helping women feel empowered through health and fitness. ❤️ I am here to tell you it’s OK to deviate from the “master plan” and change what’s important to you through life. That’s is how you GROW. So if you are not where you want to be yet, chin up and keep pushing babe! The best is yet to come👊🏻
Eenie-meenie-minie-BOO——which pumpkin patch should we chOOse?? .
Where’s the best pumpkin patches in SoCal? (Photo from 2014! ) We did live oak last year and I am not doing that again. it was my first big outing with both kids no husband and I realized the stroller had to stay in the car (can’t roll on wood chips) Jordyn had just turned six weeks old and I was itching to get out. It was soooo crowded and there was a bunch of inflatable bounce houses but one ticket only got you three minutes of jumping. You try telling a three year old he has to stop jumping and wait in a long line again if he wants another three minutes. By 8pm we were all exhausted and starving. I was trying to convince him the farm was closing and he had a full blown meltdown. I had my newborn baby strapped to me and I sat down feeling so helpless so all three of us cried for a moment. Then I stood up wiped my tears and told him to get on my back or I was leaving him there with the strangers. It worked and we made it home. 🙏 And you know what, I was so much more confident taking them out after that. Anyways, would it be unamerican of me to skip the patch this year? We got some really awesome pumpkins at TJ’s for 5.99 ! #traderjoes#pumpkinpatch#fallinsocal#amysfarm#liveoakcanyonpumpkinpatch
