Here we go - the second part of our Facial Massage 💆 💫💫💫
⚡️Begin by massaging your lymph area. Massaging this area helps release the toxins. Using the tips of your fingers, massage your lymph area in a circular motion for one minute.
Use wide circles, sweeping from under your ears, down toward your throat, and up.
You want a firm touch, but don't massage too hard, since the skin on your face is sensitive.
⚡️Massage the sides of your face. Using the same motions massage along the sides of your jaw, past the corners of your mouth, next to your nostrils, an over your cheekbones. Push your skin up, then out. Continue for one minute👌🏻
⚡️Massage your forehead. Use a broad circular motion to massage both sides of your forehead at the same time. Start near your temples and move gradually in toward the middle of your forehead, then back out to the sides. Continue for one minute.
⚡️Massage your eye area. Sweep your brows around the outside corners of your eyes, gently move them under your eyes, and end with your fingers at the inside corners of your eyes. Continue along up the sides of your nose and along your brow lines. Repeat for one minute.
Use extra oil if necessary to prevent your fingers from dragging the delicate skin around your eyes.
🌀Finish by going back over each area once more. Gently massage each part of your face again to end your massage. Your skin should look bright and fresh when your massage is complete.
Repeat it every day. This procedure takes little time but you’ll see the changes within 2 weeks, I promise 👱🏻♀️➡️👶🏼
Baron vs Vatican Dog - He attacked it with plenty of enthusiasm, conviction and an empty stomach but in the end, the dog won.

There’s a big difference.
The first implies a lack, a deficiency, that there’s something gone wrong, broken or missing in our child that others have.
The second implies that self-confidence is innately present in us all. That every child is born with the same potential. The only issue is that there’s something getting in the way of them accessing this.
It’s become clear to me that starting from the truth of this second place and really grounding ourselves in this perspective, is transforming for both children and parents.
New medium action shot! 🙄Guess who tried gouache for her very first time?!
The answer is me..... I did! And I’m loving the result!
I get a little anxious every time I’m about to try something new. I have NO problem BUYING new art supplies but when it comes to actually sitting down and opening them..... I procrastinate. I tend to pick up what I’m familiar with; micron pens and watercolor!
But of course as soon as I dig in and get my brushes dirty, I get so INTO the creative process that my anxiety just melts away. I start to feel relaxed and then all of a sudden I find myself having fun. *
I need to remember this feeling! I am so glad I tried something new today. You can expect to see a lot more gouache around here❤️

The right time is right now!!!! If I waited for the right time to do anything...to start a new workout program, to start my coaching biz...I never would have gotten started! As a mom of three, life is always hectic. Just thinking back over the last few months, June was crazy with end of school and our trip to Indy. July and August were super busy at the cottage and having the kids with me 24/7. And now it’s September and we are trying to get back into a routine but there are so many days off from school that we can’t quite get into one! If I waited around for things to get easier and life to get less busy...well I’d be waiting forever. So I decide each day what is important, I do my best to get that stuff done and I forget about the rest. Because the right time to do the things that are meaningful to us is RIGHT NOW! Don’t put your dreams on hold!
It's so hot out! Trying not to complain too much because winter is coming. Haha. Edie and I got a treat. I can probably count on my hand the number of times she has had ice cream, and I'm not sure ever in a cone while out. It was a morning of meltdowns, carrying my toddler through the subway because she refused the stroller and being at maybe my least favourite mall ever. But we picked up some bed sheets for this big girl who's getting a bed this weekend and enjoyed some ice cream together. #lookingonthebrightside
W I L D L I T T L E O N E S ↟ ↟ Always so in love with photos that @ethan_marcus_ shares showing our characters! Just the sweetest! Apologies to everyone for not being on IG much these days, we are so overwhelmed with orders right now and also getting into the rhythm of school with the boys...I promise to get better at this!! But for now, hope you’re all having a wonderful start to fall AKA the very best season of the year ❤️🍂
This seems to be my day today.
And a whoooole lot of laundry 🧦👚👗 Time to go through the bags of clothing I got for 12-24months.
Now. Where the hell am i going to put all this!? 🤯

When you first have children they talk about the challenges of parenting....the struggles of a baby waking in the night,
the toddler who won’t stay in their bed, the cost of childcare, injuries from sports... Having to take off work to pick them up from school when they don’t feel well, helping them with homework, a messy house, the never ending laundry, the cost to buy school clothes, packing their lunches.... You watch their eyes light up on Christmas morning....and try to soak in the magic of those moments.
You coach them in sports, rushing to practices and ballgames...and tote them all over the country to let them play the game they love...no matter how exhausting or expensive it becomes.
Life is just so busy that you rarely even stop to think what the end of those days look like.
In fact, it’s not really even something you can wrap your mind around.
You go into it thinking that 18-20 years sounds like a long time.... Then suddenly hours turn into days...days into months...and months into years.
That little person that used to crawl up next to you in bed and cuddle up to watch cartoons...suddenly becomes this young adult who hugs you in the hallway as they come and go.
And the chaos and laughter that used to echo throughout your home....gets filled with silence and solitude.
You’ve learned how to parent a child who needs you to care for and protect them....but have no clue how the whole “letting go” thing is supposed to work.
So you hold on as tight as you can...wondering how time passed so quickly...feeling guilty that you missed something.... Because even though you had 20 years.....it just somehow doesn’t seem like it was enough.
You ask yourself so many questions... Did you teach them the right lessons?
Did you read them enough books as a child?
Spend enough time playing with them?
How many school parties did you have to miss?
Do they really know how much you love them?
What could I have done better as a parent? .....When it’s time for them to go, it all hits you like a ton of bricks.
And all you can do is pray....hope....and trust that God will protect them as they start to make their way into the world 🌿♥️

Nothing like a carefree morning in the bedroom listening to @barenakedladiesmusic, reminiscing about the old apartment, jumping around to Enid then BAM! This line hits me out of nowhere from "What a good boy" and I'm suddenly taking stock of all my life choices and the moments when I chose safety and sameness over discomfort and growth. #barenakedladies#truth#anxietyproblems
Seriously... Why are we so mean and hard on ourselves? Like wtf?
Let go of what you think you have to suffer with and the idea that you could never ever.....
People will watch, they may judge but they will also admire and be inspired...its also none of your business what they do. You do you!
You are the only thing between you and ALL THAT YOU DESIRE AND DESERVE 💕
3 little cuties! 👶👶👶 Back home and settled in from the most magical weekend with the most beautiful couple and their darling twins! Aya is a little older so it's amazing to see them all interact. ✌summer '18 #GirlGang
This incredible post by @tenthmoonmothercare is spot on! 👏💯👏💯 #Repost @tenthmoonmothercare with @get_repost
It's not a radical idea, people. It's certainly not mine alone. And there is SO MUCH evidence to show that a new mother is more likely to thrive when she feels loved + supported + nurtured. 〰〰
Mothering the mother is an ancient practice in many cultures and for good reason: This journey was never meant to be a solo act. Do you know an expectant or new mama? What will you do to support her after the remarkable accomplishment of bringing a tiny human into the world? Here are some ideas:
Bring food. Run a bath. Hold her baby. Listen. Like, really listen to what she's saying. Bring coffee from her favourite spot. Walk the dog. Take her other children to the park. Bring more food. Let her sleep. Rub her feet. Hold whatever space she needs. Be gentle.💗
Last night was rough.
By the time 3:45am rolled around, I had already been up about 4 times, and I couldn't keep my eyes open. I could barely stand up, I was exhausted.
So at about 4, Shane got up and stayed with her, and an hour later, was able to rock her to sleep.
630am rolls around an old our alarm goes off because Shane has somewhere to be for 8.
Bettie was still sleeping, so I quietly shuffle into the kitchen and make him a breakfast and coffee. All I wanted was to go back to bed and take advantage of this sleeping baby. So I left my turkey bacon in the pan.
To eat 2 hours later. Cold. With broken eggs. While feeding Bettie.
So sometimes my meals look elaborate, and other times they look like this. That's #momlife . 🤷♀️
