24 hours later and my car is finally home.
I think I finally understand the purpose. Yesterday I asked why and today I was reminded exactly why. All throughout the many steps and setbacks, (and I mean many), I couldn’t but notice there were always people there to help, most that I didn’t even know.
From the pedestrians who gave me a push through a tricky intersection, to my landlord who helped me reposition my car last night, to the snowplow man who helped me dig out my car this morning, to the random neighbors (one of whom was also a Leaf owner!) who helped me push it to the other side of the street so I wouldn’t get a ticket, to the tow truck man who was more than happy to move my car half a block, to all my friends and family who checked in with me.
All of that makes me see that while none of those was what I wanted, I didn’t go through any of it alone. And I’m so grateful.
Minnesota has been teaching me a lot about faith since day one so why should be surprised God shows up, in all the little ways, on the worst day of winter.
Again and again I’m learning, I’m right where I’m supposed to be.

I wasn’t blessed with “good skin.” And like most people, I picked at my breakouts when I was a teen. As I got older, I started learning what products do/don’t work for my face. I also tried what felt like hundreds of products to help with my scarring☹️ When I found this brand and it actually worked, it felt like a breath of fresh air. Sunday Riley saved me and even though it’s pricey, it’s an investment I’m willing to make💰 Their Luna oil is a holy grail item for me and Good Genes will forever be in my beauty cabinet, too. I actually needed to repurchase Good Genes recently and decided to buy their “Bright Young Thing” kit (pictured here) to try out the water cream and brightening serum - and I know I’ll love it. If you feel like you’ve hit a dead end with skincare products, get one of their value kits to try a couple things out and prepare to be blown away! 🙌
Every time I see these shoes I'm reminded that we're all walking out our own unique story! Tell me... what's yours?

Last night my child went to sleep at 6:00 pm and I got to watch two hours of The Bachelor in its original air time and uninterrupted. 🌹
Not sure that is exactly what Jesus was talking about in this verse but I sure felt rested.
And I learned about #glamshaming 🤦🏼♀️ so it was an educational evening.

@humblehollowfarm tagged me to share for #naturelovetuesday so here are pictures I took today of our plants. 🌱 They're just about ready to be planted in the waiting soil, and I'm impatient to have my hands in the dirt all the time. It was a sunny 55°f and I spent the better part of the day outside. So grateful 💛

This girl 💗💚 Y’all I still can’t believe how much love I have to give since bringing her into this world. She brings such joy to our lives!
She also bring stress, chaos, messiness, drama, frustration and crazy. I’m not trying to sugar coat it. Some days she drives me bonkers, but at the end of the day when I put her to bed, I already miss her.
Being a mother and raising this girl are my greatest accomplishments in life. I am so blessed the God chose me to be her mommy.
Can’t wait until payday so I can have a night out with my besties in my fave place. January is literally going on forever and I am DONE with it. Chop chop January, your time is up. 👋🏻

lazy sunday morning? beach walk? jazz club? yes, please, I’ll take them all. oh and I’d also be down to do those things IRL, but perfume scents will definitely do for now!

There’s something about driving through the desert. It feels warm even though it’s the dead of winter. It feel familiar even though I’ve never been here. There’s something about it, and I don’t think I’ll ever get enough.

Rolled Taco Tuesday, anyone?! 🌮🌮🌮
Made these babies for dinner last night, and SO grateful I made enough for a late lunch today. 😋 Confession, if I don’t have leftovers to eat, I rarely eat lunch. 🤷🏼♀️ it’s too hard to make 3 meals a day!
These crispy rolled tacos were SUPER easy to make. Inside they are filled with a combination of sautéed mushrooms and onions, organic tofu (gave it an awesome texture), black beans, cumin, garlic, and Himalayan pink salt. Rolled in tortillas, cooked to a crisp in @chosenfoods avocado oil on the pan at medium heat, and then topped with @emeraldvalleykitchen salsa.
Happy #tacotuesday, friends!
You guys I’m laughing about how I took 3 kids to Nordstrom Rack yesterday to get this new outfit. 😭🤣 Sometimes I have ideas in my head and I think is going to be fine, until I am at Nordstrom Rack and two kids are crying and the other one is hiding in the racks. 🤦🏼♀️ So I’m wearing this outfit with Pride today. 😭😭👊🏻 #momlife

Have you accepted the idea that comfort zones are holding you back? It's RIDICULOUSLY hard to push ourselves to surrender to fear, but it's oh-so-necessary for growth. When we acknowledge that fear has the power to move our greatest of mountains and blocks, we are caring and loving on ourselves, allowing change to happen and us to grow into our best selves. Can we get an amen!? #quoteoftheday

Seriously contemplating black hair again. But I also love violet/red toned dark brown...should I go back to black? Not going to lie, I was partly inspired by Hela in Thor Ragnarok 😂
When Instagram updates their app, we rip it apart to see if there is anything that is going to cause problems for our own community. .
Unfortunately the recent update changed the way some devices and countries can ‘Share To Instagram’. (Yes! Updates can be restricted to a bunch of variables!)
There’s a new ‘feed’ or ‘stories’ screen showing for some of you, where you’re prompted to go back through your camera roll and your post might not be showing today.
We’re crazy obsessed with you and making your life easier so want you to know we are onto it!
We stayed up all night to create a solution while IG makes this process more stable, your post will be shown right at the top of your camera roll soon!
We’re now at the mercy of Apples review process and have asked them for an emergency 🚨 !
Thank you for your patience, for sending love to our team and for understanding that we have no control over Facebook 🙈.
If you’ve reported the problem to the team, we’ll respond as soon as the new update is approved to let you know 💪🏻 ! .
If you can share this message with other users of Plann you know that would be an incredible help.
P.S. Loving the white border?
Find them in the frame section of the editing tools!
Lots of sneakers and easy outfits these days because paint and faucets have replaced heels and dresses for my shipping fix 🔨🏡🧡⚡️ #firstname.lastname@example.org

It might seem like I’m trying to pitch for some sort of pain au chocolat sponsorship, but honestly, I’m not (but if you are a pain au chocolat maker then definitely hit me up 😉). This is me showing you through the magic of imagery what paradise would look like to me 😁. Now apart from giant pain au chocolats and bed - because let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want that 😉 - what would your paradise look like?
I think this photo completely sums up how tired we all are 😂 The girls have been abit snotty this week, and the wind last night kept us all awake because it blows so loudly through our chimneys! (Any fellow UK’ers, how crazy was that wind??) And I honestly feel like I’m pregnant with twins or something 😴 if it turns out this is a boy, then oh my gosh, girl pregnancy’s are so much easier!! Or maybe it’s another girl and I’m just getting old and can’t take it any more 😆 For everybody that asked, yes I will definitely find out the gender! I have to wait a few more weeks to know yet, but I’m already desperate to find out, I could never wait until the end 🙈
