Thank you @bigbangbeverages for my Wubba Water! #sponsoredpost The generous people over at Big Bang Beverages we’re kind enough to send me some super healthy & clean electrolyte drinks for the kids just in case they were to get I’ll. Well, guess who got I’ll literally the day these drinks came in the mail. That’s right! Yours truly 🙄 What a lifesaver these drinks have been these last few days for me to stay hydrated. 100% Mom approved for kids AND Moms (and Dads too). 🙌🏼 Available at @wholefoods and @Amazon.

Time goes very fast. Almost there... Love infinity
There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good. - Edwin Denby
A new dance, I had no clue about the steps, and it didn’t matter! Still it fulfilled my passion to move on the dance floor.. a surprise unexpected dance could be way more fun than a planned rehearsed one😉
I think the expression on my face captures it all.

When you're brutally honest, you second guess everything you say [usually after it's too late]; because it may offend even one person. You wonder if you're being too hard on yourself, if you're even helping anyone, if your just giving an audience more reasons to pass judgement, if you're being too negative, or too positive. Throw in social media & it's amplified.⠀
I've been making a lot of small personal strides: realizations about my childhood, interpreting relationships, reactions & my inner voice, finding my "place" + being okay with it, accepting certain aspects of my present life, really loving myself wholly. It's left me feeling like I haven't had anything worth saying, questioning my direction in my life & on here; feeling super insecure. I'm not honest on social media to get attention or air my business on the internet [my dad HATES this]. This is who I am to the core; I'm honest almost to a fault. I'm working on that- not on being less honest, but realizing that it's not a fault, I don't want to fear my own honesty. It's the biggest [+ best] part of me. I'm not here to shut up. I'm here to create a safe place full of raw conversation, real community, hard, easy, fun & crappy life stuff.⠀
I'm tired of superficial. Tired of Instagram being littered with the most "unique" facts about humans in order to gain an audience. I'm tired of hearing about animals & food, hobbies & travel destinations. That stuff is good; who doesn't love puppies & burgers & Greece, but I want more. I want quality, I want social media to be worth my time away from what's physically in front of me.⠀
We aren't one thing. We don't have a definition. You can list it all on your next Friday introduction fun facts, & possibly make someone jealous that they can't quote every word of the F•R•I•E•N•D•S series finale, but that's not quality. I want you to serve this space with something great. Because YOU are great. You aren't average. You aren't missing that *one* thing. You aren't less than anyone. You are wonderfully & wholly created, with a purpose, a passion, a calling, big dreams that feel insignificant [they aren't] & uniqueness that feels mundane [it's not]. ⠀
Embrace YOU, give
#sewphotohop Day 19: Knowledge Hub... I am a self-taught sewist, so I have learned from many sources (i.e. books, blogs, YouTube). But I feel like I’ve learned the most by testing patterns. I have tried new techniques and challenged myself in ways I never would on my own. Sooo... I went back and found the very first pattern I tested. I remember being completely giddy when I got the email from @jennuinedesign letting me know I was chosen to help test the Verona Dress. That was almost 3 1/2 years ago!! Look at cute baby Everly ❤️ @houseofpinheiro#patterntesting#sewingpatterns#jennuinedesign#handmadeisbest#isewmyownclothes
Of course you do a whole #websiterevamp during your busy season - duh! 💁🏼♀️
But in all seriousness, a huge gush of gratitude goes out to the @editorstouch who made sure your girl here looks nothing but picture perfect on the World Wide Web 👩🏼💻Be sure to take a look * link in bio *

L A U G H T E R is the best medicine...🤣
This afternoon I watched a video on FB of a woman from I think England (strong awesome accent) standing in her underwear and bra, getting ready to try on her new @spanx to do a review.
As I'm watching this video of her intensely struggling to get this thing over her hips as she's dropping the F-bomb, I started laughing so hard I started crying. My laughter became uncontrollable, and came from a deep place in my belly that felt so good, I wanted more.
I LOVED this woman, for her realness, authenticity, and no shame in her game attitude.
It made me realize that so many of us take ourselves and life around us WAY too seriously.
I mean, don't throw the towel in on the things that are really important to you, but wouldn't it be so unbelievably refreshing to not feel like we have to have it all together all the time and take some of that pressure off.
I haven't laughed that hard in a long time, and I'm telling you, it felt like I had just gotten out of the best therapy session with all the amazing good feels!😍
So here's to having more deep belly laughter in our lives!
Cheers my friends!😘
Today was rough! Being a full time work from home mom is probably one of the top 5 challenges I’ve had to do in my life. I mentally struggle with being home all the time & so does Karabo so we are going just a bit crazy over here! 😩 But the day ended with comfy cozy snuggles, so it’s all good ❤️
There’s just something SO romantic about the *almost* kiss. You can actually FEEL the energy caught between two people at that exact moment...🔥✨⚡️

Six weeks before Creigh was born, one of my best friends gave birth to a daughter. She and I have been friends for 20 years and now, in my favorite yellow chair, these two children are laughing together while the golden light shows us what loyalty and friendship really boil down to. Here’s to heart break and living in New York together and face masks and sticking together no matter what. I love you guys so much @livmaritreynolds#ireallyhopetheygetmarriedsomeday

Trader Joe’s just making me heart swell over here. It took a lot out of me to not buy everything that said “pumpkin” on it. Like A LOT.
Also, I had my very first PSL of the season today and man oh man, did I enjoy every sip of it. Happy almost Fall!🍂🎃
