From a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you ⛵️.
Happiest Parakeet there ever was 🍹.
Thank you @jimmybuffett and shout out to @luaularrys for the concert wardrobe 😎

To my third child,
I need to start with an apology. I'm sorry. I'm sorry there are things I cannot give you in the same way I gave our first two children...
Like peace and quiet.
I'm sorry I cannot guarantee that I can keep your siblings from running, playing, laughing, crying, and throwing tantrums at all hours of the day—especially when you're trying to sleep. A promise of silence just isn't realistic in our home right now. I hope you don't mind.
I'm sorry that I cannot give you the same attention I have given the other two. To be honest, they still require a lot of attention, too, and I do my best daily to give everyone as much of me as possible. But it will never quite be equal all around, at all times.
Despite some of these shortcomings, there are also things I can give you that I didn't give your siblings.
I can give you a more well-rounded and understanding version of myself as a parent. All the kinks have been worked out for the most part—courtesy of your brother and sister.
All the mistakes I made with them will stay with me so I hope not to make those same mistakes with you.
Most of all, I'm going to give you my best and hope that I can foster love, respect, and drive in you. That's my mission for all my children. I want you and your siblings to be happy, fulfilled, and to be able to make your own way in the world.
So for all the things I can't give you, and all the things I can—I truly hope you come away with a life that you want.
With love, Mama💋

It was a beautiful day to celebrate love. Congrats @priscillac14 + Ben! 💕
Guys my other post got deleted 😭😢: Since becoming a #teamipartner my mornings start with my tea and getting things done! I’m all about trying new things, especially if it will help me with becoming less bloated. I’ve been using my @teamiblends skinny tea for about two weeks now and feel great! My bloating is definitely going away and I’m feeling much more confident in myself. Use my code VPG15 for 15% off. #thankyouteami

Slow mornings like these are the best—Lucas spent a couple of hours building “his masterpiece”, a city complete with a museum, out of @magnatiles, train tracks, and @kevaplanks 😍🙌🏽
I think Jude and I would be happy to continue to learn about Fall for the next couple of weeks. With Gavin napping, Jude and I made these mini apple turnovers. Jude loves it when he gets a chance to use “his” measuring spoons and stir ingredients in the kitchen. We used crescent rolls for the pastry and diced apples with seasonal spices for the filling. Total prep time was only a few minutes and the house smelled great. #sundaymorning

L’activité favorite !
C’est à celui qui en trouvera le plus! 🍳 🥚 .
These two are inseparable 💗 The cat has been exploring our back porch lately. Chad went out and called him, and he didn’t come. Coco called him, and he came running. Btw, she changed his name to Diamond. 🤦♀️😂

Lovely few hours at the Zoo, even if we just played with leaves and climbed in every sit in car ride 🍁

I’d highly recommend going to Colchester Zoo! Lovely day out with the fam :) After a couple of trips to the farm with Billie we were hesitant as usually she cries at everything, especially the goats 🤣 but we were pleasantly surprised to see her taking in all of the animals with intrigue & wonder 😊🧐. She particularly liked the elephants & butterflies! She was enjoying the chimps although when one vomited at her she wasn’t as keen! 😅 We had another attempt at petting the goats at the end thinking she had overcome her farm-yard fear. But nope, still hates the goats! 🤣
It’s FINALLY here! For everyone that has been asking! 🌿

So, today was a reminder and a gentle lesson from my sweet bub that Sundays should be spent resting and nourishing body and soul. All shopping should be avoided!! Not sure what possessed me to try ikea on a Sunday plus grocery shopping. I had enough common sense to leave ikea five minutes after arriving to a parking lot full of frantic people. Then came the grocery shop which was necessary by all means but all this took away from being at the park, building, cooking etc. by poorly planning, I am robbing myself of precious time. #sundaysareforrest. Ps. Pancakes are from @thelittlebanksia 💕
“May the odds be ever in your favor!” Next up was an amazing Hunger Games party put on by my close friend and neighbor for her daughter’s sweet 16. So much fun was had! I got to be Effie Trinket and announce the Hunger Games and they rules of battle. It was quite the outfit. But man, it was a blast!! All in all, this long, party heavy day has made me realize what a talented group of friends I have. I’m just amazed at their ingenuity and the way they can infuse everything we do with tons of fun! My kids truly have a magical life filled with these amazing people.
Our boys are on Fall break and before they return to school we wanted them to really experience what Fall has to offer, the beautiful days, crisp cool nights, being able to look up into the stars and no wifi! @windsorfamilyfarm offers all of this and so much more, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of our stay!

We were awoken by roosters every early this morning, once the sun came out the kids got to run out and see the animals. Being able to wake up to this is pretty magical, opening the front door of the cabin to chickens and bunnies all over. 🐔

Waited in line for about 2 hours outside of Magnolia Bakery, but it was SO worth it.😋 @joannagaines cupcakes are seriously the best EVER. I’m kind of bummed there isn’t a recipe for them in the Magnolia cookbook!
In 13 days we’ll have a threenager. Where has time gone?😭

My halloween costume making dreams have come true!
While I’m not super into characters, I love classic literature, and Winnie the Pooh was one is the first classics I read the girls when they were newborns. It’s just feels so fitting for them & their best pals (spoiler alert: eyore & roo are joining the gang real soon!!!) I feel like I’m really truly living my best dream. Motherhood, making and photographing as we go! Gah! Someone pinch me. Or don’t. I never want to wake from this bliss. (Though I would really love to sleep. The no sleep thing, that’s not so blissful 🤦🏻♀️) Swipe right to see more!
Ps. I’ve had a couple inquiries about selling these costumes. While I can’t take on a whole lot, I’d be happy to fill a couple requests. Send me a message for more info.
#shellpartner the look when your sister eats the last veggie straw... school is back in full swing and our healthier snack game is on point! the girls are always hungry when i pick them up from school so we hit up @shell which now offers healthier snack options in store, giving us the convenience of healthier snacks on the go before doing after school activities, like going pumpkin picking! 🎃👻🙌🏻. so tell me, what's your go to healthier snack?
Day 4 of no breastfeeding. This is the last picture I have of us nursing. I love the way the twins are gently playing with my earrings, and that their babies had to join too. I have stopped offering “milky” and they have not asked for it since. Even though I know the time is right, I honestly didn’t think I would be this sad about them weaning. I have been a total watery eyed mess these past few days.
When your ponies perfectly match your orange and black Halloween/Fall feed 😂🐴🐴 But on a serious note, horses have always been such a huge part of my life, and it makes me so giddy that I get to share that passion with my Savy girl!! What hobbies/passions do you share with your kids?!? ❤️❤️
