• One week till she's 1 year old... still blowing my mind every minute. I'm so in love with everything she is and is becoming. Messy eater, toddler tantrums and all. She started giving me 'kisses' the other day and my heart almost exploded! Anyways, I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about and have felt it all too💕 Also, thank you #gianttiger for providing this ginormous bear that everyone in the house likes more than Ellie really likes it. It's one of those things you buy "for your kids" but we all really know it's for you so you can vicariously live out parts of childhood you never got to have. Is that why we have 7 boxes of sugary cereal in the pantry too?? 🤔 (jokes! We don't give that stuff to her and fully admit to buying it solely for our glutenous, adult asses😛). My fav is Cinnamon Toast Crunch! What's yours?🤤• #giantbear#parenthood#parentinglife#momlife#motherhoodintheraw#babiesanddogs#familydog#yellowlab#workingdogs
Amplify kindness. Help others. Live freely.
Be a dealer of hope. Inspiration. Change.
We are people helping people. ✅ Are you dreading going to work tomorrow?
✅ Do you feel like you don't get enough time to spend with your kids?
✅ Do you feel like something is missing from your life?
✅ Have you ever thought about making an additional income for your family (from home) WHILE reaching your own health & FITNESS goals?
If you said YES to any of the above, I would love to share this incredible opportunity with you.
Over two years ago I decided to take a risk by becoming a health & fitness Coach. I had no idea what it meant to be a Coach, but, I can tell you it was one of the best decisions of my life.
I feel incredible blessed to have had the amazing opportunity to help others work not only reach their fitness goals, but, become more confident & strong.
Today I spend the entire morning with some of the leaders on my team -- and it's the relationships I've created with these women that make this especially meaningful. I feel grateful to have grown a team of leaders that have been able to reach not only their fitness goals, but, financial goals that has allowed them more freedom in their lives. More time with their kids. More time at home. I have had the incredible opportunity to connect with challengers and coaches that inspire and motivate ME & everyone around them on a daily basis.
Many people ask why I Coach? ✔️ I want to HELP as many people as possible become the healthiest and happiest version of themselves
✔️I have a PASSION for health, nutrition, and fitness
✔️ I'm creating a secondary INCOME that I never thought was possible ✔️ It's enabled me to spend more TIME with my family
✔️ More financial FREEDOM
✔️ ACCOUNTABILITY to stay healthy & fit
✔️ Strong sense of COMMUNITY on our team & within our accountability groups ✔️ I fell in love with fitness & nutrition programs that are sustainable, realistic & have be shown to help others reach their health and fitness goals

With The Beau fully engrossed in his studies, The Little One and I ditched our Sunday chores to hang with some of the gals at the West Annapolis Oktoberfest. As always, The Little One had the best time with the girls and tasting all the German treats. She officially announced that the salt (yes, the salt) on her pretzel was "absolutely delicious." 🤣

Happy Happy Birthday to my kind, funny, smart, beautiful Madison. I love you more than words can explain. I can't believe you are already 7! I am so proud of the person you have become. Keep growing, dreaming and believing. You can do anything you put your mind to and most importantly don't let anyone dull your sparkle! ✨Mommy loves you! ❤️
After a night in Parma (complete with amazing pizza), we made it to Cinque Terre. We stopped for cones of seafood at Il Pescato Cucinato and took the train to Monterrosso and the kids discovered the beach. And here is where you can make or break a trip with kiddos. ☀️ 🌊
Our vacations belong to our children, too, and that means we have to be flexible. So instead of taking the ferry ⛴ to view all of Cinque Terre by boat, instead of going to the amazing shop to buy pesto for our meal tonight, instead of walking the tunnels to the next town over.... we took off our shoes and rolled up our pants and stuck our toes in the sand. We picked up rocks with gorgeous colors of orange, green, pink and purple, red and brilliant white. We got splashed by the waves and had to buy both kids shorts because their pants were so sandy and wet. But they loved it! They giggled and ran and played and THIS, after all, is why we took a vacation to begin with. We ended our day at a playground near our airbnb and I am struck with the perfection of our "imperfect" days. Days when not everything goes as planned, but that turn out well despite it, and sometimes, because of it. #cinqueterreitaly#theylovethebeach#gotrocks
(Sponsored) My little pirate loves to create treasure maps with mama! Spending focused time on each kid 👩👧is a parenting technique recommended in @kimfredrickson 's upcoming book, 📖 Give Your Kids a Break (review coming soon!), and it's something I'm working on. Especially with this little attention-monger! ❤️Double-tap if you wish you were better at giving your kids focused attention, but you're working on it, too!
Apparently Tori insisted on buying me flowers whilst she was out with Nanny. They make our delightfully hideous fireplace look much better :)
On the flip-side, Nanny appeared on the doorstep in tears because Arthur had been so hideous to her all weekend. He was being pretty awful before but since the last fortnight or so he's managed to get worse. I can only assume it is the house-move and new class at school that has unsettled him, but I'm at my limit of knowing what to do and being able to cope 😞
