Congratulations @missrodeoca 2018! 👑
Lately I've been really liking the song "Unforgettable" by Thomas Rhett. With that being said, the 14th of October will definitely be a day I will never forget.
I want to thank each and everyone of my friends and family that reached out to me to congratulate or even just share some kind words or a warm hug. It mean so much to have such a great support system behind me.
To the Miss Rodeo California Pageant Committee, you are second to none. You all put in so much hard work and your whole heart to put on such a wonderful pageant. I can honestly say I enjoyed each and every day of the Miss Rodeo California Pageant.
To my fellow contestants, you are the ones who made this pageant so much fun! From the pep talks to the late night laughs thank you for being so genuine. I know these are friendships that will last a lifetime.
To my family, you guys are my rock! You are the ones who have supported me since the beginning, from wiping all my tears away those five years in a row that I lost to the happy tears of winning and each and every time In between. Most importantly my mom, without her I most definaletly wouldn't have won the appearance category, theirs no telling how many brain cells she sacrificed from stripping boots and dying clothes. And I wouldn't be half the woman I am with out her guidance. Love you ❤️ I can truly say I had the best role models to look up to as a young aspiring rodeo queen. It's such an honor to have my name along side each and every Miss Rodeo California before me. I always dreamed this day would come, I just haven't realized it's happened.
Thank you to each and every person who has helped me get to where I am today, I will try my absolute best to be the best Miss Rodeo California I can be. Here's to a year full of once in a life time opportunities and memories that will last a lifetime. 👑💕 #fourteenthofOctober#MRC18#MissRodeoCalifornia#someonepinchme
********THIS TESTIMONIAL MADE ME SO HAPPY, SHE WORKED SO HARD********
I am a 57 year old woman and suffer from SI joint problems. I had constant pain in my right front thigh and lower back for several months following an acute flare up including a prolapsed disc. Following a few days in hospital and ongoing pain relief Laura gradually got me moving with confidence and comfort.
Laura had such a great knowledge and understanding of what was going on. She has such a gift and generosity for teaching I learned how to tune in, understand and manage my own body; building strength and practising correct alignment in exercising and therefore my day to day movement.
Although difficult to describe my reaction, at one of her classes I suddenly realised I was pain free! Her classes are fun and supportive and the whole class could see and share this moment! I have occasional twinges but the Pilates exercises alleviate those quite rapidly. The difference her teaching has made to my life is real and genuinely amazing. I am independent of any pain relief and doing everything that I want to do including learning to ride a horse - posture posture posture!!
I experienced something late Friday into early Saturday that I never dreamed I would. sweet friends had asked me to be present at the birth of their baby boy months prior, and I still can’t get over how honored I still am. honestly, I didn’t give them an answer for a few weeks when they initially asked — mainly because I didn’t feel worthy, neither as a person nor a photographer — but playing a role in this was one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received. I cried and fist-pumped and lifted endless prayers while baby’s mama pushed through the pain and baby’s daddy held mama’s hand the whole time, and I even had to remind myself to take pictures a few times from being so enthralled by this miracle. ✨ I witnessed new life emerge a few days ago, and I’m grateful for life, in general, now more than ever before. what a special, undeserved privilege! it was almost as if I was watching my own parents see me for the first time, and my mind certainly wandered back to when TJ and myself got that first glimpse at B. life is a miracle, y’all. a beautiful, beautiful miracle. 🌱 #birthphotography#yeahthatgreenville#someonepinchme
How do you refill your cup??
No school today 🙌🏻 but still woke up early so I could get a few “work” things done before spending a couple of hours in the deer stand 🏹🦌
Now catching up on a little reading before I jump on a call with someone I’m SO excited to get to work with!! Like... I kinda feel like I’m in a dream because I’ve followed her for a year and now I get to work with her! 😍 #someonepinchme
Spend a little time today refueling YOU. It’s not selfish - it’s necessary.
You can’t pour from an empty cup. Fill yourself with goodness and let it overflow 😘
Most days I don't know which direction is up! I feel like I'm a chicken with my head cut off running around trying to do a million things.
Yesterday was a weird day. I was crazy busy and my kids were just not feeling it. All the tears, all the meltdowns; it was super stressful.
But as I sit at the bus stop with Beau I have a second to think. No matter how crazy this life is I am so freaking blessed!
I have an amazing husband, 3 handsome boys, family and friends that love and support me. I have a job that I am so passionate about, I get to help others. I'm helping people change their lives, EVERY day. 😍
Gahhhh!!! My heart cant EVEN!
It's amazing all the positive you see when you stop letting the negative drown you.
