Today was really rewarding. I was part of a team of students today who helped make these women feel as beautiful as they really are. Once a year WWILD throw a ball for them to let their hair down, dance & party the night away. Our school volunteers to do their hair & make up and it was a privilege to be a part of that. My client Melissa was stoked.. especially showing off her temporary tattoos 🤘🏼what a great reminder of how lucky I truly am for the life I have. #wwild#wwildball#hairandmakeup#allthefeels#reminder#realitycheck#emotional#fun#happy#proud 💄💅🏻💇🏻♀️💆🏼♀️💃🏻 HAVE FUN GIRLS!

Who’s ready for the weekend ?? Tag your Goddess squad 💗🖤
When Erin and Dave met at the end of the aisle... it was magical. Their wedding was all kinds of romantic, elegant and overflowing with love. These guys are madly in love and their wedding was definitely a day to remember. ⠀
Erin is now 35 weeks pregnant with their first child, and they’ll soon be meeting their daughter and experiencing another day they’ll never forget. ⠀
I can’t wait to hear your news @erin.__o @davidoudshoorn 💞
Much love, M xx ⠀
Celebrating my 1st baby turning 9!!!! 😭😭
This girl was my easiest pregnancy🤰🏻but hardest birth! She came with a dramatic entrance (3 long days including 26 hours of intense labor) with the best #midwives ever & 🙌 #homebirth ! The moment she was born= bliss!!! Her name means brave + joy; she reminds us of this all the time! This girl has a God-fidence; and already keeps me very accountable!! She is the best big sis & little teacher in our family. She’s makes #homeschoollife easy! An eager learner + loves helping me in the kitchen! She’s an amazing creative, she could read or draw all day + movies, but she also takes breaks as a writer herself!! Sweet E; I’m excited to see you continue to be a bright light for God’s kingdom!! .
God knew that we’d all be perfect together as a family: I’m honored to be your mommy!!!! Daddy & I are so proud of you. We love having a special reason celebrate your life!! 🎂 .
I’m Fine! -
We can all get very good at masking pain, overwhelm, disappointment, anxiety and heartache. When we have the I’m fine mask on and are holding it all inside no one can offer us the hug we need (we might not even know we need it), be with us when we allow the tears to fall or be there just to listen. -
You can and you will get through this, just remember to breathe 💖 -
When I was about 7 years old living in Missouri I had a blue jean colored record player that folded up like a small suitcase .. besides my Sesame Street Birthday and Annie records , I had two other records I played over and over and OVER again. I would hang out for hours in my room, singin those songs over and over and OVER again, flipping the record from A side to B side and moving that needle back to hear my favorites again and again as I tried to learn how to hit all those notes, belt all those choruses out and memorize all the words (just asked my mama - she may or may not have come in asking me to turn it down a time two 😂) .. one of those records was Barbi Benton #truestory and the other was a self titled album Tanya Tucker put out when she was 15.. my 7 year old self was in awe tonight and my 40 something year old self shed a few tears watching her perform in such an intimate setting.. it felt so full circle, I’m not even sure I can explain.. reason #111 I love livin in Nashville .. and damn she’s still got it.. so grateful I got to witness her on stage.. I took about a hundred photos that I may try and post tomorrow in stories once I process the last 2 hours.. all I know is that she still inspires me and she still knows how to do a tequila shot on stage and perform like a boss! TY @thetanyatucker I can legit say that was a dream come true.. #allthefeels#deltadawn
I didn’t grow up dreaming of being a girl mom, I just wanted to be a mom. Today I can say that she is the piece of the puzzle that completed me. She is the “little Amy” as Mamaw calls her and the #reallifepunkybrewster that I didn’t know I needed.
All of the emotions I am feeling tonight over her starting kindergarten tomorrow remind me of how much I love her, how proud I am of her and how she was #justwhatineeded.
So this just happened!! My nephew is officially a Marine! I have so many emotions, Proud Auntie being the top one. I can’t imagine how my sister and brother-in-law are feeling. As parents we all want our kids to be the best version of themselves and live their best lives! Joining any branch of the military is by far one of the best ways to accomplish this! Such an incredibly honorable decision. At the same time absolutely nerve wracking that your baby is flying the coup immediately after graduation and embarking on a life-changing journey that could take them anywhere in the world, far away from home. I’m proud of you nephew... so, so proud!! And to my sister... don’t worry girl, I will bring ALL the tissues and water-proof mascara!!
Today was my 40th birthday and MAN if today is a glimpse of what 40 is like, it’s going to be FABULOUS!!! I have all the things to share and all the words to say, but right now this girl is tired...I did just turn 40! ;) What I will say (quickly) is that today has left me with ALL...THE...FEELS!!! From sweet KA friends & families spoiling me ROTTEN, to kind WSA friends with cake & kindness, to friends who have “been there” and who have become family, & to sweet family who go the distance!💚 What a SWEET day...my cup runneth over!
Stumbled upon a few more of these friendly reminders from God today. 😏🍀 The last few months have been nothing short of difficult, complicated, overwhelming and the list goes on. Many people who meet me see my smile and my energy and don’t always wonder about my truths. Those who know me best know that I put my full faith and trust in God and find depth and meaning in the simplest of things. The last few weeks and even days I’ve been faced with several more challenges. And just as many times before, my faith would like to run, hide and grow as tiny as possible, but I am constantly reminded of my place in this world through.... clovers😏....it must sound so silly to an outsider.....but they are my little whispers from God. I always say that I’ve grown up with them finding me and that they have been my saving grace through many of my toughest times. We all have stories and challenges. It’s how you choose to move forward and cultivate your world from them that matters most. One thing to mention, is that I thank God for recently bringing someone special into my life...or rather opening my eyes to finally see who I had standing/working out!? right in front of me all these years. He’s been my rock and he’s given me every reason to smile when life throws its curve balls my way. The love and the kindness I’ve felt from him in a few short weeks would be enough to last me a whole lifetime....but I will greedily, continuously and most of all appreciatively, always want more. When my thoughts were getting the most of me today, this patch of clovers popped up into my view, just around the corner of where my new parking spot is at work. I will take that as God’s mini approval as to where I find myself in this world right now. #clovers#luckygirlwhodoesntbelieveinluck#nosuchthing#fourleaf#godswhispers#faith#myplaceinthisworld#love#newromance#romance#allthefeels
It's hard to ever put into words how much this band and their music mean to me, these songs were extra special to hear live. All the feels. Sending out hugs to the Corvallis crew, although everyone may be in different cities or states now, you all had a profound, loving impact on my life and I think of everyone often. ♥️ #laundryroom#avettbrothers#allthefeels#lbdayamphitheatre#salemoregon
🏃🏼♀️This is what friendship is🏃🏼♀️
✨ showing up for each other even though both of you feel like you can’t possibly run today (hello busy ER and ICU this entire week)
✨ supporting each other 💯 no matter what 🙌🏼 (this even means speaking up and saying hey girl I have to walk for a second you keep going and having ZERO shame!) today I ran on and tomorrow or the next day my body might make me slow down and THATS OK- she would still support me with zero judgment ✨ being truly are proud of each other with no underlying bs
✨knowing she is a total badass but I that you don’t have to compare yourself but instead just build each other up
✨sweat hugging it out
Love you @_rachelotey today was everything I freaking needed! 🙌🏼💕👏🏼 #runnergirls#icu#er#nurses#allthefeels#runitout#shesabada#nursesinspirenurses#ican#iwill
Happy birthday to the Queen 🐝 in our family. It doesn’t matter who you are she always makes you feel welcome. She will always bend over backwards to help you out and she will always improve an idea that you have. Happy birthday Mom - we love you so very much #itsacelebration
⚠️Client Spotlight⚠️ Today was Krystal's last training session with me before she moves to the mountains tomorrow morning 💔
She gave it her all today & smashed her best time up #flinderspeak by 12 minutes!💪 She has come so far physically & mentally, I am so incredibly proud of Krystal.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of your fitness journey, it has been an absolute pleasure. 💟💟💟
We’ve been working on a project with @queenslandeyeinstitute for the last 8 months that will really pull at your heart strings. It’s all coming together and should be ready to launch in the next couple of weeks and we can’t wait to share it with you, it’s really something special
