I wish I could say loving myself comes so easily and never sways. I wish I could say I bounced back from giving birth and love how capable and miraculous my body is. I wish I didn’t feel like a stranger in my own body. ... ... I was promised this glorious outcome from having birthed a child and was disappointed in myself when I felt less than joyful bliss. I love my baby. I need her near me- but then why do I feel so sad and dark? ... ... Like MANY other mamas I suffer from postpartum depression and anxiety. Like MANY other women I was asked if I was going to harm myself or my baby and sent on my way. I wasn’t okay. ... ... I struggled for months between talking about my feelings, medication and searching for a source of relief. I started back up with yoga and intentional breathing. I realized that I needed to show my body love. Love that I have been starving it of for much longer than I care to admit. As time has gone on I’d find myself branching out to other exercises and finding waves to catch that endorphin high. ... ... I have a ways to go but I think I have found an outlet. A way to give back to my body and mind after all it has done for me. It’s a great comfort knowing I’m not alone. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Please share your stories with me or just vent if that’s what you need. .. .. .. #ppd #ppa #attachmentparenting #attachmentparent #plussizepostpartum #postpartumdepression #mentalhealth #babyblues #sadmommy #selflove #newmommy #ittakesavillage #cosleep #breastfeeding #nojudgement #exercise #yoga #intentions #breathing #mm100 #endorphins #adrenaline #hormones #support #womensupportingwomen #woman #womenempowerment

#proudMommy time.... gotta brag a bit because those who know J’s last two years understand that it’s been a rough transition to teenager. This child who has lost interest in everything has missed 2 days of classes since starting #JiuJitsu in June- never have I seen him work so hard at something that challenges him- and his first tournament he took home first place in both #gi and #nogijiujitsu . The video is him tonight, 4 days after picking up the #saxophone for the 1st time. #carelesswhisper #playingByEar #selftaught So yes, I’m posting a brag post about my kid #SorryNotSorry because I am celebrating the amazing child I have. I am so #grateful to @checkmat_olympus_bjj_academy and the influence @josh_olympusbjj @maurolympian @ali_olympus @conny_olympusbjj have had in instilling #selfdiscipline #grit and most especially #selfesteem both on and off the mat. 🙌🏽❤️🎉 #jiujitsulife #Bjj #ittakesavillage

One of my most favorite things to do! Our Parent Ceremony is coming up soon! October 20th at @treeoflifebirthcenter. Link in bio for more info! A beautiful opportunity for expectant couples to honor the rite of passage into parenthood with recognition from your partner and the community.

Lately I have been choosing to view my daughter’s almost-two-year-old intense behaviors and big emotions as in your face reminders to slow down and tune in. I’ve been thinking a lot about how these little humans were made to be raised by caregivers who are present and attuned, free from the distractions and pressures of our modern world. These little beings don’t care that their auntie texted you, that you have clients to work with, that the living room is a land mine of toys; the burden of working from home is not theirs to hold. All they need is you, and that is enough. ⁣ ⁣ It’s taking me a long time to get my website launched, to finish some trainings, to read in preparation for this work. Some days I feel exhausted by how slow it’s going, some days I need extra help to just keep up with current clients in my day job. But it’s the slowing down, sitting on the floor reading together, giggling as we dance to her favorite song, running bear hugs, that all give both her and me the energy we need to grow forward. It’s ok if my progress is slow. It’s ok if, some days, things just never seem to get done. Raising humans is a huge endeavor to undertake, I’m going to be gentle with myself and celebrate all that’s right in front of me in the process. ⁣ ⁣ Listening to a conversation between @_stillwerise and @up_bringing on the Upbringing podcast today, mid unsuccessful car nap when I needed it most, really gave me some space, and the permission, to slow down and tune in before delving back into work today. Sometimes all these little people need, and all we need, is to really connect before anything else.

TO OUR VILLAGE: “O for grace to TRUST HIM MORE...” 2 months ago we asked, & we are humbly asking again... Will you continue to join us EACH DAY at 1:30 in asking GOD to not only complete this adoption process & bring our baby boy HOME, but to bring restoration & healing to the country of HAITI? See posts shared in stories to read more about what’s currently happening in Haiti. We chose 1:30, because PSALM 130 says, “Out of the depths I cry to YOU, O LORD! O LORD, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!... I WAIT for the LORD, my soul waits, & in HIS WORD I HOPE; my soul waits for the LORD...” #joyinthejourney #delight #coopercrew #bettertogether #adoption #lampandlight #eternallystrong #eternallysunny #ohappyday #ourtribe #ittakesavillage #boymom #raisingarrows #family #weightofthewait #cooperstocolombiaandhaiti2

All of your comments on my post yesterday meant the world to me. I read every single one and cherished those sweet words! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I'm excited, and nervous, to share more about my journey with you guys. I'm not finished yet, still a work in progress, but I have learned a few things so far and want to take you on the journey! Like this moment I caught of my girls holding hands (rare occasion) and Penny "fixin Clara's hair" [insert heart melt here], I believe we are meant to rally around each other, share our burdens, hold hands, fix your girlfriend's hair, and cheer them on like crazy in this journey of life!

There are some days on this crazy train when I need to remind myself that I'm doing good work, even if it feels like I haven't gotten anything dine today. Playing with my daughter, laying her down for yet another nap, holding her AGAIN, because she just seems to need those extra snuggles today - those are good things. But, for some reason, I keep a list of everything I've done today so that I feel like I haven't wasted my time at the end of the day. . . . •Washed a load of laundry •Folded laundry •Did a quick tidy •Made grocery list •Called eye doctor Part of it is to keep me on track for the next task, but I always tend to spend a little too much time looking at that list at the end of the day, thinking, "That's all I did?" But it's not all I did. Every day, every minute I spend with my little wild babe, is worth so much more than a pile of clean clothes. And making her laugh until she almost threw up today reminded me of that. 💕🙈 . . . . . Yeah, that got away from me a ittle bit. This post was just to tell everybody that my doula website is live, and the link is in my bio. 😂 . . . . . #oursweetroselee #thesearethedays #babiesdontkeep #mynameismama #modernmotherhood #crunchymama #documentyourdays #thepursuitofjoyproject #dailyparenting #ohheymama #thehappynow #raisingworldchangers #littleandbrave #habitandhome #letthembelittle #ittakesavillage #ourhappyhome #doulalife #birthdoula #labordoula

This girl. Today, at our Tuesday Blessings Bible Study...I thought I’d finally found the answer to keeping her quietly entertained. I tucked her away in the church library that’s adjacent to the coffee house where we have lunch. That way she could sit in a comfy chair with her iPad volume up and not disturb anyone. . I should have known it was too quiet. She came to get me to show me something. 😳 . That something turned out to be 6 cassette tapes from an audiobook that she had pulled the guts out of and piled together in the floor. . Panic and despair. I quietly tucked the cassettes into a shopping bag and stuffed them into my purse after 5 minutes of attempting to wind them back in before realizing that was 1) fruitless and 2) absurd- who even listens to cassette tapes anymore? . Don’t worry. I ordered a CD version of the audiobook from Amazon before I even concealed the evidence...and I made a full confession before I left.🤦🏼‍♀️ . Being a S/WAHM is so much harder than I expected it to be. Potty training 😬 Opinionated dressers 🙄 Snack obsessed 🤷‍♀️ and when you think you’ve finally found an outlet for some adult interaction that will keep you from pouncing on your decompressing introverted husband the instant he hits the door from work...the pile of guts smacks you in the face. . I already struggled with some of the older ladies comments about “young people today” and how children should be seen and not heard and how their children knew better with just a look. It made it hard to concentrate and enjoy the fellowship when I was constantly afraid of their judgment...in the one place I expect to be given grace. To be honest, it’s part of the reason I’ve often shunned “organized” religion in favor of my own relationship with God. . But, as the tears fell when I told the organizer at the end that I didn’t think this was a good fit for us but I was really enjoying the book and had a replacement for the library already on order...hugs, hands and more teary eyes gathered round.😭 . They ask me not to stay away. They said she was a perfect 3 year old- curious, playful, exploring her world within the safety of mom’s reach just as she should. Cont’d in the comments-

An old picture. But a new post. A friend recently asked me how I juggle it all. Three kids and this time consuming craft. And the truth of it is. I am incredibly lucky. My entire family is so amazingly supportive of my work. My children and their friends rarely see me without a piece of part made jewelry in my hands.They think my torch is pretty sweet 🔥. I think when you are passionate about something you will find the time to do it... Honestly when my husband suggested I try this craft a bit over three years ago my kids were two, six, and nine and I thought he was crazy 🤭 like, how could I possibly have time for a hobby, I couldn't even keep the kitchen floor clean!!?!?! But. He's a wise man and he was right. I made the time. And it folds right into our lives 💜and though.....I still don't tend to keep the cleanest floors, in fact they may be worse off now...and there's always a pile of laundry waiting to be folded and put away... This entire journey feels a lot like magic.. ✨ I hope everyone has the opportunity to follow the magic in their lives. Wherever it may take you. 💜 #withalittlehelpfrommyfriends #helpinghands #ittakesavillage #ladysmith #followingmydreams #supporteachother #notmarthastewart #confession #everydaymagic #chooseyourownadventure

In this digital age, being connected is a google search away. But technology is also the thing that is isolating us more than ever before. When we bring a baby basket to your door, mom-to-mom, it's our small part in celebrating you and your baby. Our aim is to do this in a meaningful way that brings our community together. Whether it's a free meal or a free massage- there's something in our basket for every momma. DM us if you are expecting- or if you are a business interested in learning how to partner with us!

So I had originally pictured she and I doing **every angle** of the business together (since that’s how you learn, right?) But when I asked her a few days ago, she confirmed what I had suspected, namely that while she’s open to us gathering ideas for sure, she’d rather just focus on the Girls Crushing It [quarterly, just kids, awesomely run] events for now, for which my involvement is basically zero except driving her where she needs to be and doing occasional cheerleading. And dude, I get it. She’s eleven! And school is plenty. My gosh. And the reality is, the angle of Crafting Joy that she gets most excited about is creating flyers and getting business cards to hand out (maybe she’ll be a marketing major) and Reality Mom is like, “product first, business cards second.” So anyhoo, my philosophical question (because my natural way is to think just about everything into the ground — it’s hard being me 🤪) is whether to let her lead the product pace entirely in terms of anything non-GCI-related and I just support her as she feels ready/ desiring to do more, or do I use some of her one-time creations as models for products that I would then do the majority if not all of the legwork on getting created while she would have a standing invitation (as opposed to a requirement or pressure) to be part of the process anytime she saw fit, with the idea that all the while she’d be getting to hear all about the process (at dinner or whenever) and ideally at the same time I’d be helping to grow a business that she could eventually take over if she desired. Anyone wanna chime in with thoughts? I might not follow your advice, but then again I might! 😂💖 #parentingonthefly #craftingjoy :: :: #life #entrepreneurlife #parenting #overthinker #artsy #raisingmytribe #ittakesavillage #motherhoodrocks #enjoythejourney

You guys Facebook shouldn’t be just a #rolodex of who you know in real life. It gives you access to know so many new people, to make new friends you would never have met otherwise! I love having met so many people from so many places doing incredible things. If I hadn’t gone out of my comfort zone three years ago I never would have friended an #anthropologist from a dog group who knows a herd of hippos in #Africa that are in need of graze due to the droughts. And because I made a new friend (who’s dog’s relationship status I’m obsessed w btw😳) I’ve been able to directly impact said group of hippos not once but twice now. Want to help hippos too? Comment below and I’ll send the link, $10 feeds one hippo a day! We spend more at Target! Imagine spending it on a hippo instead!? When asked what did you do today, you can now say I fed a hippo. And who doesn’t want that?! 💗🦛🦛🦛🦛💗 #helpthehippos #hayforhippos #makenewfriends #opportunityeverywhere #friendsfromallovertheworld #friendswithoutborders #socialmediamakesitpossible #domoregivemorebemore #ittakesavillage #dogmomsunite #womenhelpingwomen #hipposofinstagram #africandrought

So special to witness stories of redemption! Today Cheyenne from Prototypes, a women’s center promoting health and independence for moms in recovery, brought in two, soon-to-be mamas! Both shared their stories of overcoming their past addiction for the sake of their babies on the way. They came to James Storehouse to receive all the resources they need for their babies in order to transition into independent living after they finish their time at Prototypes. Tears of pride and gratitude were shed from everyone in the room! It is such a joy to be a part of their stories and such a picture of the power of community! • • • • • #fosterparent #fosterparents #fosteryouth #fosterkids #fostermom #fostermama #fosterfamily #fostercareadoption #fosterbaby #fostercareadventures #fosterlove #fosteradopt #thisisfostercare #fostadopt #jamesstorehouse #ittakesavillage #fosterchildren #fosterswell #teenparents #newburypark #fostercare #instakids #fosterteens #fostervckids #venturacounty #thousandoaks #fostercareis #sparkkindness #backtoschool #homeswithheartvc

Today, at the store I met a lady who asked if I was a teacher because of what I was buying. I confirmed and she asked if I needed any notebooks for my class. Now y’all, I went in to buy notebooks for my groups but it was just going to be so much money so I didn’t. Anyway I tell her that and she says well let me run out to my car and get you some. A little odd but okay. She tells me that she bought over 100 spiral notebooks when Target was 90% off school stuff so she could donate them to her local school. She left and came back a few minutes later with a bag filled. So tonight my heart is full and I can continue with my plan for my students instead of coming up with a new one. People are good before they’re bad. I will always believe this. #floridateachertribe #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #ittakesavillage
