#happybirthday to the most amazing sister-in-law who’s  patient, smart, kind, and a fantastic mother. She does it all and does it oh so well. Plus, she picks a brunch spot that’s playing the #worldcupfinal! #celebrating #thankfulforfamily #letsgocroatia #brunch

We were #blessed with a good rain last night. #happyyard #plants #family #makingprogress #yardwork #recoveringfromsurgery #smiles #thankful #thankfulforfamily #love
So thankful for parents willing to watch our kids while I get better at home! ❤💙❤
Hoping I can be walking easier by the time they get home later this week! 😁🙏😊

“Gratitude like faith is a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it grows, and the more power you have to use on your behalf. If you do not practice gratefulness, it’s benefaction will go unnoticed, and your capacity to draw on its gifts will be diminished. To be grateful is to find blessings in everything. This is the most powerful attitude to adopt, for there are blessings in everything.” -Alan Cohen #faith #gratitude #blessings #bethankful #sundayworship #thankfulforjesus #thankfulforfamily #thankfulforcoffee #thankfulforyou ☕️

Enjoyed a nice walk downtown Plymouth. #summer #thankfulforfamily #sistas
Four years ago, Eric almost died right before our eyes.  It was the scariest moment of our lives.  Thank God that he somehow started breathing again after he had turned completely blue/gray. 
It is four years later and I can't imagine life with our crazy, loving, cuddliest, crazy smart, little man. ❤️ #oursweetboy #memories #thankful #fouryearago #fouryearsold #scarymoment #thankfulforfamily #grateful #gratitude
Yep, prepping for fall. Summer, I love you dearly, but a girl has gotta get ready! I’m loving this fall foliage sign 🍁🍂🍁 complete with tiny acorns 🐿🤗 A great thing about Ohio is the amazing change in leaves. But for now, lets enjoy the other half of summer! 🌞

Saturday is a great day for the beach 🏖 *
*
Been thinking this journey I’m on is more toward wholeness than perfection. I’m giving myself grace today and maybe you need a little too. Perfection is not our destination; it’s ok if we mess up, it’s part of the journey. It’s what we do after we mess up that counts. And today, on vacation with 5 kids, I was impatient and had to ask forgiveness. After years of battling my inner self,  today I wasn’t about to let guilt steal my happiness. And don’t let it steal your’s either.  #saynotoguilt *

Thankful for getting to spend 2 weeks with my adorable nephew!!! #teacherlife🍎 #thankfulforfamily #auntie
A spontaneous walk in our nearby woods with one of my sisters and my nephew (and the boys). These two are 12 years apart but they adore each other through and through. So thankful he was there to carry my youngest - especially when my flip flop broke half way through our walk 😩. #momofthreeboys #thankful #family #thankfulforfamily #familyisthebest #walks #campbellvalleypark #junothehuskymix #nwtspca #adoptdontshop #walkinthepark #beautifulbc #explorebc
On 18 July 2015, at this spot, it was just Sam and I with the ring. 3 years later we have this adorable addition to our family. #jaydensukantha we love you.

Fix one thing, find something else that needs fixing while you're fixing the first thing. That's being a homeowner, right? I seriously have THE BEST dad in the world! When my washing machine flooded he (and my mom and sister) dropped everything and rushed over to help me clean up and pull up the floor. Yesterday my dad and I spent the whole day putting the flooring back. Today was supposed to be a quick finish and put the washer and dryer back. So, of course, we discovered that my tub has been leaking for who knows how long! (Silver lining to the washer flood, we discovered the leak and are fixing it before it gets any worse.) Back to how great my dad is, he's spent the morning armpit deep in a tiny hole in the floor under my tub pulling out wet insulation. High fives to all the dad's and mom's out there who are still helping their kids in their late 20's!

That question arises pretty often, not just in my life but women’s lives in general. If you’re not working outside the home, people want to know what your purpose is.
*
* “I mean I know you’re a mom but what do you do outside the home?” Like somehow taking care of children isn’t enough.

Like somehow raising the next generation to be ambassadors for Christ is not enough.
*
*

I am telling the world and maybe your soul:

Mothering is no second-rate ministry. It is your ministry, and it’s ok if that is all you do because that is enough…there I said it. Mothering is enough.

It is enough for you, and it is enough for God. It is ok to put dreams on the back burner and focus on your kids because they need you now. They need all of you, not just the scraps you have left over at the end of the day. They need all of you no matter what age they are.

It’s been a little over a month since I moved back to #montreal and although I am not where I would like to be, I am very #grateful for every easy or difficult situation that came my way. I will keep smiling, be positive and never give up! If you have any advice on how to keep striving, feel free to share below! 👇🏽♥️

37 staples out and buzzed hair.....had to be done 😱 
Day 10 post-surgery and recovery is going well, though still SUPER tired. Husband and mum are looking after me well 🤗 (and yes don’t worry I’ll be covering the ear-to-ear scar with scarves until my hair grows in👍🏼) #thankfulforfamily #babystepstofullrecovery #buzzcut #buzzedhairdontcare #brainsurgeryrecovery #godissogood
After almost a week of being out of town, I am ready to be home! We were able to spend some time with my dad, which is rare this time of year! I am thankful for this time and the fun he got to have with my kids. Now, back to the heat & mosquitos! #vacayisover #thankfulforfamily #summervibes #concantx #riverrats

I'm so thankful that I have good people in my life. A little bit earlier today I was so frustrated how my computer was taking a long time... like 5 minutes plus to load a page 😡. But after talking with my girlfriend she helped calm me down. I'm lucky that I created a community I surrounded myself with like minded individuals that I can turn too. 
Whether it's my family, friends who love fitness, anime, martial arts, music and personal growth. Having them have made my life so much easier. 
This is what I am thankful for. As being a part of a community instead of being a lone person has truly been a lifesaver! Thank you for being a part of my life! I love you all! #thankfulthursday #thankfulforfamily #thankfulforfriends #thankfulforcommunity

This little guy is with his Nana and Grandpa for a couple days!! He’s stayed with friends/family before, but never out of town when we were back at home! Such a weird feeling and I’m trying to figure out what to do with myself 😂😂😂
.
I miss him...but this time with just my sleeping (finally) newborn is nice!
.
So, I’m going to be thankful he is in SUCH good hands and just enjoy the quiet right now 😆😌
. 
P.S. How old were your kiddos before you “left” them for the first time?? Was it super hard for you? Lincoln was 15 months! Even though I know he’s in really good hands and probably having the time of his life, it still tugs at my mama heart to let him go 😉❤️

When saying goodbye to my home for most of my life.. 💜🏡.. the only way I knew how to say goodbye and honor my dad and his craft , was by lighting my @lightmyfire_bend bundle and having all my 6 family members myself included... 📝write 💚 words of what this space meant to them, then add to the 🔥 Fire, sending out into the universe that love to the new owners.  It was a perfect send off💙. 🏡 @solmama1 @solspot @a_v_l_i_s 💙

I’ve heard it said that it’s not happy people who are thankful, but thankful people who are happy, so in the interest of amping up today’s happiness quotient, I’m calling out three things, right here, right now, for which I’m grateful 1: my mama—don’t know how I would do 1/2 of what I do without her! 2: Lovely couples like these two right here who trust us to capture their wedding day, and 3: Starbucks Unsweetened Iced Green Tea, because those teas are definitely getting me through this heatwave. Now you! What are you thankful for today?

Every now and then I get a little lost
My strings all get tangled, my wires all get crossed
Every now and then I'm right up on the edge
Dangling my toes out over the ledge
I just thank God you're here 💞 #thankfulforfamily #babes #iloveyouall #appreciationpost

Sometimes it’s dishes made from scratch, that take an incredible amount of time and obscure ingredients. Othertimes it’s takeout. But it’s always, always a good time. .

Yesterday, July 8, I turned 30 years of age. To stop, say these words, and fully absorb them causes reflection and, honestly, inner peace. Throughout my entire life, I have chosen to try and live as best as I can outside of societal convention and construct. I have always felt like an outsider looking in, operating from an unusual frequency, and being myself based on how I want and need to experience this existence. 30 years in, and having done a lot of self-growth and evolution, I am fully standing in own skin, pursuing my dreams and passions with fiery intent, never settling for anything less, going against the grain, and fondly appreciating and loving every smooth and rocky step that I took to get to where I am today. The people in my life, and the journey I'm taking, it has all shaped me into the person I am today, and I am forever grateful to everyone and everything as I keep forging my path. Encapsulated in the slides of photos I've chosen for this post are mostly ones of me smiling a goofy grin, but that's what I've been taking away from this life. Everyday, I live a life that brings me vast happiness, and I can't help but smile it back to the universe as a thank you. 😄

Today i woke up to late, was to tired for my yoga practice. So i just sat and sensed the sound of the birds, the sound of the city waking up. Over the day i noticed how at ease and grateful i was. My start in the day was just - perfect. Sometimes your daily routine don't work. This doesn't mean your day will not work. Important is to be yourself, to feel yourself. Be grateful, be happy, be sad - be. Because you are here. 🙏🏼❤️ #gratefulfortoday #healthykids #happy #thankfulforfamily #mondaymood #meditation #breathe #beyourself #morningpractice #journaling #stralaeverywhere
Today i woke up to late, was to tired for my yoga practice. So i just sat and sensed the sound of the birds, the sound of the city waking up. Over the day i noticed how at ease and grateful i was.

In Minnesota, summer means cabin season. It’s the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and we enjoy the heck out of them. This weekend we spent some time up at my parent’s cabin, with my sister and her family. 5 littles ages 3 and under can sure be exhausting, but the time spent playing with cousins, fishing with Dad and Papa, boating with Grammy, snuggling brand new babies and reading books with aunties  and uncles is irreplaceable. .
🌭
We even were able to give our food monger Jamesy a hot dog birthday celebration, which made this Momma’s day.  Babies only turn ONE once!! ❤️ I’m thankful to have a family who adores him (almost) as much as Rich and I do. 😏 #thankfulforfamily #babyturnsone #littlegreenwagon

Helsinkiin kun muutettiin Helmikuussa on elämä ollut aikamoista vuoristorataa. Mulla on ollut parikin työpaikkaa, ennen kun sain vakiduunin jossa mä viihdyn. Ollaan jouduttu muuttamaan uuteen kotiin, koska vanhassa asunnossa oli kosteusvaurio. Mä olen nyt meidän muuton jälkeen viidettä kertaa kipeänä ja jatkuvan sairastelun takia laihtunut n. 10kg, eikä lääkärit ole ottanut mua vakavissaan😒 Koti-ikävä on vaihtelevasti erittäin kova, koska olen tottunut viikoittain näkemään mun perhettä, mutta nyt se ei aina ihan kyllä onnistu välimatkan takia. 
Onneksi mulla on mahtavat ystävät, perhe ja mies joka kestää mun kiukuttelua ja jääräpäisyyttä❤️ Sekä mun ja Alexin yhteinen aika on todella vähäistä, töiden ja Alexin koulutuksen takia, mikä on todella raskasta ollut etenkin mulle kun toinen ei ole siellä kotona, mutta tekee meille kyllä hyvää😅  #thankfulforfamily

My first (and very proud 😂) catch with the cast net. This thing is so fun and addicting!
Growing up, my dad took us fishing often and would use a cast net to get us some bait and just for fun to see what we could bring in. I always wanted to throw it out but it was too big and heavy for me. Joseph bought one and I totally took it over 😂 oops 🤷‍♀️
My fisherman, adventure loving, sweet daddy left us for heaven 5yrs ago today. I can't tell you how badly I wanted to send him this picture and let him know how I'm getting the hang of using the cast net in the ocean. He'd think it was so cool and would giggle and dote about my adventures...and probably give me all the tips and tell me all the stories! He loved stories.
Wonder where I get my love of outdoors from? 😉 and so many other things... #adventurelover #missingmydaddy #hetaughtmehowtofish #castnet #getoutside #getsomeadventureinyourlife #galvestonisland #texascoast #firstcatch #garciafamilyvaca #thankfulforfamily
