Birthworkers are often parents too. While we may be confident and poised in our clients’ houses, reassuring them to listen to their common sense and intuition, we may also be just as unsure or fearful as our clients in our own lives (parenting decisions or otherwise). I know I am!

This poem can be used as a reminder in day to day life, but especially in the context of birth, postpartum, and parenting.

We found ourselves a keeper at the patch 🎃
.
And since there’s quite a few new faces around here, I wanted to do a quick introduction! My name is Keiko (pronounced Cake-O 🍰) and this is my little fam, Daniel and Andersen. Andersen is just over 1 year old and as feisty as can be. Girl is gonna RULE the world one day, and right now we’re just trying to survive her sass 😅
.
We live in Seattle, and if you’re local, we’d love to meet up! Because this girl could use some more mom friends 🙋🏻‍♀️
.
Some other random facts: I used to be a journalist, but now I’m taking a break to pursue the SAHM life. I’m originally from Montana. And we’re obsessed with cats in this household 🐱 or as Andersen would say, “tats.”
.
XOXO, Keiko

What kind of Seattle girl buys new sunglasses in the fall?
🤔
This one!
🙋‍♀️
Thankfully, we’ve been having some nice sunny days lately. Because you know otherwise I’d 100% be walking around wearing these in the rain.
🌧
I was actually just thinking these might be a good gift for my coaches who reach their goals...what do you think?? Drop me an 👍🏻 or 👎🏻.

“What’s in YOUR bucket?”
.
Isn’t it interesting how a child can want nothing to do with a toy until their sibling is playing with it, and then suddenly, that’s the only toy in the house?
.
I find that too often we can make ourselves feel bad about wanting something that others have. It’s okay to want it, but don’t want it just because someone else has it and you think you SHOULD. Want it because it means something to you!
.
For a long time, I watched other people living healthfully. I knew that I SHOULD probably do that too, but for whatever reason, I wasn’t ready to make a CHANGE.
.
Let others inspire you, but don’t let their journey make you feel bad about where you are at. You will decide what is best for you when YOU ARE READY!

I’m sure most of you would agree that traveling is the best.  We are heading to 3 different countries very soon and I’ve managed to plan most of the necessary details.  If you have travel plans in the foreseeable future, WHERE are you heading? I’d love to know! 💛 🗺 ✈️ .

2015. Our newborn photo shoot. P cried almost the entire time. She would eat for a minute or two, be content for a minute or two, then cry again. It would be another two weeks before we learned I had low milk supply and she was hungry, really hungry. I’ve spoken pretty openly about my breastfeeding journey here and in person, but this morning I’m on the @wellfedwomen podcast, talking to my dear friend @coconutsandkettlebells about the journey, the steps I took to work on my supply, how we fed our kids, my favorite formulas, and most importantly, how I worked through the shame and grief to realize that being their mama and loving them fiercely was and is and always will be ENOUGH.

Leaf it to the pros. Who needs a swing set when you have a giant pile of leaves? This is that time of year to embrace the urge to roll in the foliage, and just bring extra clothes for a strategic costume change when the littles are covered in dew drops.

Listen to your body. All the creeks and cracks. Something didn’t feel right, yesterday, during my CDF Live class, in my shoulder. It wasn’t anything strenuous either. Never is. So today, I lightened my weights considerably and moved slow. Modified a ton of moves and omitted a few even. Shoulder injuries are no worth pushing through. Anyone had one before?? ••
Definitely coming in for a visit @dwchiropractic, so expect a phone call! Play it safe friends.

When your earrings are the perfect shade to match your bag....it’s going to be a good day. Playing with the Color Pop collection is so fun and this super soft cardi went right along with it. Now did I want to actually go out or could I just cozy up with some hot tea on the couch. I guess someone has to pickup the kids 😜To nab this sweater  or looks like it check out my link in bio#tuesdayfeelslikemonday .

The girls and I took the new @toyotausa #Avalon for a spin last weekend and had a little overnight in Friday Harbor.  I’m grateful for daughters that love a last minute adventure and are still so excited to hang out with their mama!  We grabbed a bite @sanjuanislandbrewing then snuggled in our b&b with cookies and Netflix.  I have to say - their ages (5 & 8) are pretty dang fun...as is this car!!! Can I please keep it #Toyota??? I promise we’ll go on weekly adventures! 🙏🏻 #LetsGoPlaces #Ad

ALL of our children.
💙✨✨💗
It’s Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. I don’t share much about these two we lost. But they were memorable. They were wanted. They were loved. Neither of them went down without a fight. (Would you expect any less?) And they certainly are part of our family story. So tonight, we lit candles for them as part of the Wave of Light happening across the world.
🔥
I also lit these candles because too many go through this feeling alone and isolated, even though this actually affects 1 in 4 of us. Some tragedies may seem bigger or smaller from the outside. And nobody can really fully understand someone else’s pain. But there is power in sharing our stories. And you are not alone.

#ad So glad that I ordered this memory card from @fredmeyerstores just in time for our family vacation!
.
The cool part is that I ordered it online through Fred Meyer Direct, which saved me a trip!
.
It’s just one more way Freddy's is bringing CONVENIENCE and VALUE to their customers. .
It's the Fred Meyer I know and love, complete with their low prices and fuel points, but now shipped directly to my door! .

Be grateful for what you have while you continue to work hard for what you want.

This past week, we ended up putting in an offer on a house. Thank you all for the positive vibes and well wishes you shared. We did not end up getting the house, but are actually feeling happy and relieved to stay in our current home with this incredible view.
.
I love that with my business, new opportunities are on the horizon. Ones that I did not originally plan for or intend to work for. A shift has happened though and I have a strong fire inside me to take this business to new heights!
.
I have experienced first hand what these programs can do for people and how they change lives! I am a completely different person now than I was just one year ago and want to pay it forward to as many people as possible. But, I am not able to do this on my own! I NEED YOU to help me spread the word that living a healthy lifestyle can be enjoyable and maintainable!
.
I am looking for 10 women who want to join my upcoming Coach mentorship program! Together we will grow as individuals, work to inspire others, and achieve whatever dreams you envision for your life!
.
It will take focus. It will take intention. It will take work. But, it can also provide you with freedom, opportunities, and fulfillment!
.
Who’s ready to climb to new heights with me!? Together, we have the opportunity to listen in on a Sneak Peek into Coaching hosted by a few of the TOP 10 leaders in my entire organization! I am honored to be a part of this RARE opportunity and beyond EXCITED that I’m able to SHARE it with YOU! Send me a message if you would like to check out this Sneak Peek! Trust me, you don’t want to miss out!

We don’t get to say the word touché very often. I think I am going to weave it into a conversation this week. It’s practically impossible to say it without a knowing nod and narrowing your eyes. Wish me luck. 
Hope your Monday is a good one.

Hey hey! I’m Leona! 
Mama of 2, pregnant with #3 and founder of Vital Shift Fitness. I’m a certified specialist in fitness nutrition, workout enthusiast, former NFL cheerleader and competitive gymnast. 
I’ve always been involved and fitness in some level, but really got into the “health” aspect after the birth of my 2nd daughter. During my 1st 2 pregnancies, I stopped working out, ate what I wanted and just didn’t realize how much I was hurting my body (and mind!). So what happened? I decided to get back into pre baby shape, and even better. I started to study about natural health...deeper than just weight loss and body tonight. I’m interested about the inside of our bodies, too, not just outside appearance. 
After having body image issues, because of being let go from the pro cheer team for being a couple pounds “overweight,” my mind kept going back and forth between so many different kind of thoughts. 
One thought that was more recent, was after my experiences, why not help others the same way I helped myself?! And that’s how my business began. 
I’m all about teaching a lifestyle change. NO diets! Losing weight, gaining muscle, healing your insides, whatever your goal...that’s my jam, and I want to help you! 
A good way to start is with my gentle 7 Day Fall Detox coming up! Message me for details or interest in other services!

✨ Blog post ✨As women we go through several periods of intense change. This is normal, but nonetheless frustrating and confusing. As a young woman I was "the first" for a lot of things. While some pre-teens beamed with pride wearing their first training bra, my body was a confusing place. 👙
.
All those years ago I learned to become more self aware and understanding of other girls' bodies, emotions, and struggles. I learned that embracing change and asking questions was important. I learned that my body was special and capable of so much 🖤
.
At #33weekspregnant my body has gone through a world of change (even more so with our move to Seattle). And while embracing this change has come with its own ups and downs, I've learned that change is an important part of growth. I've also learned that my needs as a woman have changed, and seeking out support from others is crucial to me being the best momma I can.
.
This week on the blog I talk a bit more about change, weeks 29-33, and everything I've learned so far. Six-ish weeks to baby! 👶🏻

This week on the blog I talk a bit more about change, weeks 29-33, and everything I've learned so far. Six-ish weeks to baby! 👶🏻 . Link in bio 👉🏻 bit.ly/Aworldofchange33 . xoxo, Erica

When I was gifted my first DSLR, I was *that* photographer. You know the one - the girl whose had a camera for five minutes and already come up with a business name. The girl who charged $60 a session and used auto-settings the whole time. The girl who botched her first engagement session because she didn’t know the settings had changed and everything was being shot in super low quality. The girl who thought she was HOT STUFF and was high on the thrill of making art.
*
And then I started to build my business, to educate myself. And I would get super frustrated with *those* photographers. Maybe because I was embarrassed of myself and my own humble beginnings. I like to think I’ve grown since then and I’ve realized...we all have to start somewhere.
*
We have to start somewhere and usually that somewhere is smack in the middle of “I have no freaking idea what I’m doing”. And we make mistakes. LOTS of them. Enthusiasm, not talent or skill, is what carries us forward until we either burnout or we adjust and move forward to create a viable business.
*
Building a business is hard work. It’s an ever evolving process. It’s tiring, it’s frustrating and OMG I ABSOLUTELY LIVE FOR IT.  When I almost quit last year (and I’m so glad I didn’t) I was feeling super burnt out and ready for something more reliable. But then I finally admitted to myself that I am an entrepreneur. I love what I do. And I’m running a real business. I had gotten to a place where I needed to start taking myself and my work seriously and not live in the shadow of the girl who shot photos on auto settings.
*
If you were to start taking yourself seriously, who would you be? If you have a dream, what’s stopping you from chasing it? Use what you have, start where you are, and dare to build your dream girlfriend.

When I need to make sure my artwork colors match something specific (like the baby clothes I receive, or a wedding theme color in the case of this bridal keepsake), I run a printer test with different shades of the color and adjust the closest match as needed. And since the test has to be done on the beautiful, high-quality velvety paper that I use, you'd better believe this paper will end up completely covered with color swatches :)⠀

What’s a Fall tradition you’ve started as an adult? Or a favorite one you carry on? Growing up I didn’t go to pumpkin patches. We didn’t carve pumpkins, or dress up. I never felt like I was missing out though. Instead we made apple dumplings and fall crafts. Now I love carving pumpkins and dressing my kids up, but for me October will always just be about the slow transition into a new season and a new year. My favorite thing about Fall will always be the big breath we take in the in between. It fits so perfectly between the busy long Summer days and the chaos of holidays. .

Hey everybody! This table was sort of a test mule for different table leg designs. It was left with angled legs that looked OK.. I didn’t really like them, but someone else did so that’s great! It was sold locally. When you’re creating any kind of art, it often doesn’t turn out how you originally thought it would. That’s just how it goes 👍 Onward 👉

Wow!! How ironic it is that I started esthetician school four years ago in October and today is national esthetician day 😱😱 Time surely does fly by. Over these past three years of being a licensed esthetician, I’ve had so many life experiences and met many wonderful people that have  helped me get to where I am today. This is really my PASSION ❤️❤️ I just remember painting my mom and aunts nails and  telling my family that I would have my own business one day! never knew exactly how but I knew it would be in the beauty industry. This is only the beginning and I’m excited to see what God has in store for me and my purpose as an esthetician 💕💕

Hi 👋🏻...my name is Kylee and I...⠀
⠀
Have been in at least 6 car accidents in my life 🤦🏼‍♀️. HEY... I know what you’re thinking... they weren’t ALL my fault!!! 😂⠀
.⠀
But some of them were my fault... and they were scary!! I don’t know how my mom has survived living through all these traumatic events! Phone call after phone call. ⠀
.⠀
I’ve had impact from front, back and both sides... I guess it took a lot of lessons for me to learn. Luckily I haven’t been in a car accident in over a decade! ⠀
.⠀
What about you? Clean driving record?

Decluttering and getting your home in order shouldn't be about making everything Pinterest-pretty or getting a bunch of likes on Instagram.
.
It shouldn't be about making your home look or function like mine or someone else's.
.
It is about getting your space set up for YOU to live the life YOU want to live.
.
Helping my clients set up their homes to support THEIR personal passions and goals is honestly my favorite part of the job.
.
Getting your home in order is more than being able to easily find your keys (although that's a nice bonus). It's about finding and making space for you and the things that bring you joy.

Another Monday morning or school drop offs and a few hours of work. What’s really good about this morning is that I was alone with the kids for most of the weekend and don’t feel depleted or spiteful or anything other than ready to take on the week. It’s amazing what regular self care does, because this has not always been the case. In other news, the @beautycounter holiday collection launches to everyone today and I’m wearing my favorite new product, a lip sheer that reacts with your lips to create a custom color. I get that this sounds way gimmicky, but when I put it on I get this color that looks super natural, it’s just my lips but more bold and defined.

I wrote this next piece exactly 5 years ago today on a beach in Southern California (where I’m from). The year was 2013– a year of inevitable change that I was unaware of at the time.  I moved to Seattle in September 2014 to give you some perspective.  Life is a trip, ain’t it?! This short, slightly silly rhyme reinforces the gratitude I have towards everything I have gone through.  I’ve changed destructible behaviors...been humbled on multiple levels...worked through things about myself that I wasn’t too fond of.  At the end of the day, I give thanks for my experiences and remain open to learn, to love, and to grow. 
10/15/2013:
Eternally grateful for all that surrounds me-- the good, the bad, and that which remains to be understood.  Because in essence, the smiles and the frowns all fall where they should.  No worthy lesson surpasses the path where I stood.  The next step my own, brace the storm without hood. .

Sometimes I feel sorry for all the husbands of the world that have to stop in front of street corner restaurants for a photo op. But then I remember that they forget 5 minutes later & I feel less bad

Let it snow...but maybe only in a few months ❄️😅 It was pretty wild getting caught in a snowstorm in mid October so I'm glad to be home where the low is only in the 40's and we have nothing but sunshine on the horizon #letitsnow #butnotforawhile #bozeman

Excuse the crappy quality of photo, but all the feels on this Monday so 🤷‍♀️. I just had to share a thought that hit me like a ton of bricks during our workout this morning. ••
Before Coaching, I would’ve taken a week (or 2 months 😳) to bounce back into my routine. #realtalk. I would’ve told myself, I need the rest, I can start again next week or after the holidays. Seriously. ••
I found the accountability of being a Coach far more impactful at first (that and I’m frugal, so like a good discount). People are afraid to throw that title on themselves with the fear of the pressure or what their friends would think, of them being an “official Coach”. ••
Yes this business has been so fulfilling and rewarding, but I’ve learned lifestyle tools that I may not have otherwise picked up. ••
Told you this was worthy of sharing 👊🏼 as I know a few of you, like me, overthink what Coaching can be for you. ••
I’m an open book and will share anything about my 10 yr experience, including income, which I think people fear is so taboo! 😱 It’s not. #opendoorpolicy. Drop them below and Happy to answer publicly or DM me!

I just had to share a thought that hit me like a ton of bricks during our workout this morning. •• Before Coaching, I would’ve taken a week (or 2 months 😳) to bounce back into my routine. #realtalk . I would’ve told myself, I need the rest, I can start again next week or after the holidays. Seriously. •• I found the accountability of being a Coach far more impactful at first (that and I’m frugal, so like a good discount). People are afraid to throw that title on themselves with the fear of the pressure or what their friends would think, of them being an “official Coach”. •• Yes this business has been so fulfilling and rewarding, but I’ve learned lifestyle tools that I may not have otherwise picked up. •• Told you this was worthy of sharing 👊🏼 as I know a few of you, like me, overthink what Coaching can be for you. •• I’m an open book and will share anything about my 10 yr experience, including income, which I think people fear is so taboo! 😱 It’s not. #opendoorpolicy . Drop them below and Happy to answer publicly or DM me!

Yesterday was a full day! Abigail and a friend since she was born got their ears pierced together! Both did an amazing job...better than I would do for sure. Later in the evening we had family pictures. Corralling the family for hair, makeup, dressing etc always takes a miracle but I think we did it and I’m excited to see how they come out. 
My favorite time of the year is fall when I can wear vests. It’s sunny but cool and not raining so my sleeves don’t get wet. Out here in Washington, they are few and far between so I take advantage when I can. 
Did you notice I rearranged the office? I flipped it all around for a different view in pics and videos. Can’t wait for you to see the changes. I’m diggin it! #ilovesundays.

I don’t know about all of the other parents out there, but nightly story time with my babes is something I look forward to everyday. We let each kiddo choose three books to read and seeing how excited they get when we sit down together and open the first page, always brings a smile to my face! 📚🐛

“You have been made ready”

I saw this at the Magnolia in Waco, TX this weekend and it seems to be the message I am meant to share. I heard a similar message at church today. It was about Joseph from the Bible who was sold into slavery by his brothers as he was the favored son. Despite this set back he rose to the top then was out in prison then rose again. Despite every set back - he used his talents to honor God. He never allowed fear to interfere or hold him back from his purpose.
.
.
I felt like God had a spotlight on me. I have been holding back from sharing what’s bubbling in my heart. I have this vision of where I am going and who I want to join me as my ship of success is casting off and the anchor ⚓️ is being pulled up.
I have been afraid to go live and share it as I am usually tired when I get around to it so. Ow going to own the moment and just share my ❤️ when it starts tugging on me.
.
.
What’s my passion and purpose? To build a team of gals like me who want to help other busy woman be confident again. I want to link arms with gals who are sharing positivity on social media and want to expand their market beyond the borders 🇨🇦across the pond 🇬🇧. I am going to be a top rated fitness team sharing fitness and nutrition & life solutions for THE busy Momma and working gal who thinks they just can not do it. .
.
I am creating a solid business and want to invite you to join me. To stop allowing fear to hold you back or be in the driver seat. .
.
You too have been made ready. Are you ready to join me?! Click on the link in my bio to join my team and let’s do this together🙌🏻

I meant to take this photo earlier in the day so when I took it, there was a shadow that hit them exactly in a line and no matter the angle it just didn’t turn out the way I wanted. 
_
Maybe this was my lesson in procrastination. I kept saying, “I’ll do it later” and then... shadow 🤦🏽‍♀️
_
Good thing it was JUST a photo and not a huge project. Happy Sunday, y’all. It’s come to an end and I’m ready to face the rest of the week, sans procrastination. 
_
PS. These are pumpkins from my aunt’s garden. 🎃 Serious pumpkin envy.

Had a beautiful trip over to Poulsbo today for my brother’s soccer game. The kids were giddy on their first ferry ride, we all ate way too much, the boys won their game 7-2, and just enjoyed this gorgeous day we had today 🍁

Double Tap if you have ever felt alone. .
.
Moving to Seattle was hard. To say that I felt alone is an understatement. This transition left me feeling depressed, anxious and full of self doubt. I remember reading that if you wanted to have a friend you must first be a friend to others. I took every opportunity to be a friend and serve others in hopes that I would feel love in return.
.
.
After 7 years of living here it’s finally feeling like home. Many of my friends I met through the #ballardchurch and #allstarkidscompany. Others through a women in business group and by building my team of consultants with my skincare company. .
.
Not one day goes by that I don’t thank God for my village! Community is everything and I feel so grateful to have finally found my tribe. .
.
Tonight I want to encourage you to tag your tribe and love them hard! .

✨You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.✨
~Danielle Laporte
_
I’ve always been “too much.” Bright red hair, intense, stubborn, direct, talkative, energetic, full of big laughs.
_
People don’t know what to do with me. I don’t fit the mold. Yet as an extrovert, being accepted and loved by others is one of my highest needs.
_
So, for most of my life, I tried to be what I thought everyone wanted. I studied popular girls. I crowd-sourced every decision. I believed that someone else’s opinion must be more “correct” than my own. 🤔
_
You can guess how well that worked! I lost sight of that person I was born to be. But thankfully, over the last few years, I’m finding her again.
_
I am DONE rounding out my edges.
I will keep my edge, thank you very much.
_
How about you? Drop me an 🔥 if you will promise to be yourself 💯, too!

day fourteen of #captureyourgrief: connection. it’s hard to stay connected to your grief the further the years grow between their last breathes and continuing to move forward with your life. it’s so special to be able to come to a place and spend a morning with people you love to remember those babies every year at our annual remembrance walk. this year was the first year I didn’t have work or wasn’t laid up in bed trying to keep a baby cooking, and spending this morning with my beautiful network of people was without words. you don’t have to stay connected to your grief, but staying connected with the people who have helped you navigate that path is so special. 💙 #bennettian

Here’s how you can help your teens maintain good oral hygiene:⠀
✅ Lead by example, and let them see that good oral hygiene is an important part of your daily routine;⠀
✅ Store a variety of oral care products in a few places in the house, make sure they’re always on hand for your teens;⠀
✅ Make sure to give your kids all the information needed on the topic. It can also be a good idea to ask your teens’ dentist to share some advice during their regular check-up;⠀
✅ Keep your family’s diet healthy.⠀

Hey hey from snowy Montana ❄️ We ended up taking a quick weekend trip over here to spend some time with my sis-in-law and watch the #MSU homecoming game (my husband is an alum). We knew it might snow but were caught unaware at just how much it was going to snow. At least it made for a pretty trip and gave us a little taste of winter in October ☃ #doyouwannabuildasnowman #gocatsgo #lastbestplace

We are escaping to Leavenworth today and made a pit stop at Cle Elum! My husband spent much of his childhood here, so it was fun to see some of his old haunts and favorite bakery. ❤️ next stop, Bavarian Beauty!
