I tend to think we haven't changed at all. But then I find a picture from our 1st year at college together! So thankful for our really long friendship! 16 years as best friends makes me feel old. Lol. Pics are 10 years apart (18 years old & 28 years old)

Last night I was watching her sleep, and she looked so big.
I remember her being so tiny in her bassinet, and now in a few days she will be 1. .
That happened so so fast🙀
The date shown on the second image is the caption from me sharing this image. The last time I would go to bingo with my grams. I really miss her. I never realized how powerful she was for me. This image brought me to tears the other day. Today I’m doing better. 🥺
Layers of fall on #sonorapass before the winds came in and blew them all away. I love to spend as much time in the Sierras as possible, especially during fall. Even though I do, it still amazes me that one weekend all the leaves are so colorful and the next they are completely gone. It is such a great reminder of how time keeps moving and change keeps happening. Nature doesn't have an intermission! So look around you, find beauty in the your daily life, give thanks for each moment, capture what you can. Either with a camera or just hold it in your memory. Oh...and just #getoutthere#emformdesign#fallfoilage#mountainrivers#sierrahighcountry
Mishika finally turned 11 months old!! 😊🤗🤗 I cant believe how fast time flew by. I remember last year during this time I was heavy and could hardly walk around and eagerly waiting for Mishika to arrive🤰. Fast forward to today, she is soon turning one! 🙈🙈💕 I hope she always remembers that she is so loved by everyone and Mayank & I feel beyond blessed to have her!! ❤️
Biggest milestone this month - She can walk 🤩😁💃🏻💃🏻
Favorite game so far - Throw throw ball
Favorite food 🥘- Anything that her parents are eating 😂
One thing that gets her overly excited - Run towards the stairs and try to climb them when no one is watching 🙈🙈 (we are so behind in baby proofing our home 😅)
One habit that she is determined not to change - Loves her parents bedroom (yeah all sleep training failed 🤫🤫)
Love you dear 😘 , can’t wait to celebrate 🎊 🎉 you turning one this Halloween 🎃 🎂 🎈
Sometimes I wish life would just stand still for a minute.
The one constant in life is change.
It's constantly shifting. Moving. Recreating itself.
There's so much going on in the world today, we have so many more things to respond to.
People wanting things from us.
So many shoulds and big shoes to fill.
Was I just imagining it or did life seem somehow simpler back in the 80's and 90's?? I swear there was less pressure, less shit to keep up with in the era that I grew up in.
In today's age and world, there's so much pressure, to be something, do something, raise kids who fulfill 1000 conditions.
My kids have grown so fast, the last 14 years have flown by in so many ways. I just need time to slow down a little, to stop them from growing so fast, so I have a little more time to enjoy them.
I know it's crazy to want that.
I know it's not possible.
I know we can't turn back the clock.
But I oh so wish it would.
Time moves so fast.
It's a different life to live these days.
I hope we can find ways to slow down time. Go back a little bit to the simpler life.
Where we had friends that were like family.
When we followed our hearts instead of all the shoulds society puts on us.

From the moment I first held my nephew he conquered every corner of my heart ♡
From the moment I took the role of step-mummy to beautiful Amelia I knew I was blessed ♡
I try so hard everyday to be the best role model, inspiration and support for these two... everything I do is to make sure I can give them the best things in life and will show them everyday how much they are loved ♡
Cannot believe how quick they have grown up 😱 time moves fast so take the time to appreciate what you have around you.... everything else can wait 🙏🏼 #proudaunty ❤️ #proudstepmummy#blessed 🙌 #nothingbeatstheseroles#timemovesfast#coparentingatitsfinest#rolemodel#inspiration#buildalegacy#lookathowlittletheywere 😢
I in no way shape or form think of myself as a writer. When I was in high school and had to do English and creative writing, I dreaded it 😫 I would stare at a blank piece of paper for hours before I would know how to start it. I don't know all the fancy words or meanings to every word but I try to speak from my heart. Tonight I've been thinking about my marriage to my wonderful husband. Since day one of us talking he has been the sweetest person I have ever meant. He always went above and beyond to win my heart (remember the time he took me to swim with dolphins🐬!). That memory is still to this day something I hold on to and think about often. It takes a lot of courage for a VERY modest girl to walk out in a wetsuit in front of a guy you have only been around a few days 😂
I'm getting off topic but the last year (and 4 months) has flown by! Which got me thinking time is precious. Before you know it time slips by while you do this thing called life. Funny how when you just go about your day you think time is moving slowly but then you look back and see how much time has past and you are amazed at where you are. I still consider us newlyweds and we are still learning about each other everyday. They say the first year of marriage isn't always easy. It's not always rainbows and butterfly's. The first year of marriage is so important! And you could go on to say the first FEW years of marriage are so important. I guess what I'm trying to say is soak up all the time and memories you have with the one you love. Don't let time slip by without telling him/her you love them. Or grabbing their hand as you are walking the aisle in the grocery store. Or putting down your phone to spend time together. I could go on and on about Justin and the love I have for him. But I don't want to bore you 😉 I'll just end by saying tonight I'm feeling extra thankful for this man I married! He chose me to spend forever with him and I feel blessed ❤️
Can you believe how fast this year is going? Those of you who have followed us since the start of the year may remember the garden calendars that we brought out, but due to issues with my supplier, we had to temporarily remove them. But fear not, they are coming back soon! Watch this space!
