if i'm being completely honest, parenthood hasn't been sunshine and rainbows. we've hit a lot of bumps. we've been to hell and back trying to get answers.. we've went many directions, praying that it would actually be a dead end. we saw an endocrine specialist today to figure out why Chester still has high calcium levels, while we have checked mostly all of the serious stuff off the list we are waiting for three more tests to finally put this whole thing to rest. quite frankly, i've never been so ready for a chapter to end and let's be honest those little bandages don't really match our aesthetic. tonight we snuggle and pray for good answers. || mamas with babies going through anything medical big or small, you are so tough, never forget that and those babies are stronger than we know✨
Door to door our flight from NY took a whopping 12 hours! 😱 I'm just glad to be home after nearly 6 weeks on the road pregnant, with a 3.5 year old. I unpacked and Otto played with his toys for most of the day. When our friends Sean and Miles invited us to throw rocks into the river, it was a good excuse to finally get outside. #homesweethome
One of the many reasons I began my journey with essential oils was because I needed all of the emotional support! 😭😭 I have been through a lot, and sometimes it's really hard for me to admit that I needed that support and that I still do. I've always felt everything in so much depth and it can seem so overwhelming. I feel like I may be close to breaking out of this shell, breaking loose from this grasp, and moving on to a new season of life!!! A season where I can handle my emotions a little better, which in-turn makes me a better daughter to him, wife, lover, mother, daughter, granddaughter, aunt and friend! •
If you at all feel like essential oils may benefit you and your sweet family, please feel free to message me! I love talking about them and sharing my love for these unicorn oils! I also talk about them a lot over at @wildflower.essentials and there's a link in my bio if you know you're ready to dive in and I will be here every step of the way, along with an incredible village! The support is here!! Our team and I are so ready to walk alongside you through this journey!! ❤️🌿
Sometimes...okay...a lot of times (at least for me) life throws an unexpected curve ball and I have to "punt" as my mom used to say. This week has been one of those for sure! An unexpected hospital stay (for the hubby) the day before I opened registration for the Heart Of Photo Fabulous this week. We watched the eclipse in the parking lot of the hospital for a few minutes, before getting him checked in. Thankfully, the doctor had admitted him, so we skipped the ER. He likes to say it's because he's VIP😜😂 I had to take time that night to create a page, because it's my therapy. It's how I sort through "stuff" (events, emotions, good and bad). I love it because it's a release! It's my story and I'm telling it...my way! How about you??? If you WANT to get it told, but aren't finding success (yet), join me in class!! http://ModernPhotoSolutions.com/MyHeart ANDROID AND iOS📱💗 #projectlifepages#projectlifeapp#pocketpages#pocketscrapbooking

When you show up and you and your bestie are wearing almost the exact same outfit 💁 These two girls together is just the absolute best and I cannot wait to watch their friendship grow. Plus, who doesn't love all the redheads!
I hear other mamas say that time goes by too quickly and they wish they could keep their littles little, but you won't hear that from me. I keep thinking that right now, her exact age today, is my absolute favorite. I love watching this little spitfire grow and learn and explore. Each day is a little bit sweeter than the last. Someone just remind me of this when she's 16, okay?
So, I have been super MIA over at @elleizahbethshop but I decided to have a HUMONGOUS print sale!

What late summer looks like in my flower farm and cutting garden. 🌾 With the exception of a few stems of strawflower & dusty miller, this is my personal expression of local and sustainable flowers. The magic and the mystery and the practicality of making art from something you have grown... it's unlike anything. The connection is profound.
I could of course spend a lifetime in relationship to nature, and feel as though I hadn't even begun to untangle its mysteries. The mystery is part of what calls to me, as well as the intimacy-- working with and in nature, I am small but I belong.
I want my relationship to nature to deepen in wisdom all the time. It is maturing, as I learn to consider local ecology, and weave ethical concerns alongside considerations of beauty. I also want this connection to remain, in some way, unstudied and free. I want to know nature in as an artist, a steward, and as a child who still wants to run into every garden and meadow she sees. 🌾🕊
So my husband farms & starts seedlings inside our home- everything from flowers, to greens to squash and everything else in between. This evening when my husband got home from work, we had to put the carrots that were ready in the ground- and it's super tedious work. It started with re-softening the ground, then making sure we pulled every weed and unwanted root that could hinder our carrot roots from digging deep. We then had to mold our rows- followed by making the holes just big enough for the plant to go in the ground. When we finally got to the point of putting the delicate plants in the ground- my mind immediately thought of the work the Holy Spirit does to our hearts when we surrender our lives to Jesus. Like the hard ground that has to be tilled and softened- likewise our hearts begin to soften when Jesus comes in a pulls out every weed & every unwanted root that had settled in our heart to make way for his spirit. And as that process is taking place- it gently begins to make room in our heart for him to inhabit. Those delicate roots are like the roots we begin to let grow in Jesus. He enjoys the tedious work of healing us to our core to be able to finally have us to himself. As our roots begin to grow deep in him- we begin to bear fruit! Our once polluted, weed infested heart is now a developing, wondrous garden planted and cared for by the ultimate Creator.
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.”
Ephesians 3:16-17 NLT
Isn't it amazing? He wants us. And He does all the work to make us pure- we just have to surrender first.
