Smiling through a low fever and feeling pretty 💩y because I finally got my hair did AND got to go grocery shopping alone yesterday 💁🏻♀️🙌
I let myself rest yesterday as I’ve been having a sort of “flare-up” lately and I know my body needed it. .
I woke up better today and crushed both yesterday + today’s workouts (a total of 50 mins, and first one was stretching 👌).
Phase 1 of Be100 is officially done and I am absolutely loving the flexibility + quick yet effectiveness of it! Oh, and the tunes, the variations in type of workout, and that not one of them is the same!
Despite my little flare, I’m feeling incredibly strong and while I’m being cautious in not pushing myself too hard, I am still working and feeling good on that front💪
I’m able to do more than I thought (have you seen some of those moves?!) and I know it’s due to keeping a positive mindset + years of work up to this point ⚡️
You can do more than you think, too. I’m sure of it 😘 and if you’re ready to Be100 with my fabulous tribe, we’re getting ready to launch a second round so shoot me a message to get started! ❤️
The @paintgrandtraverse event took place this past week. What a beautiful painting of a beautiful scene! 🎨 (If anyone knows the artist that painted this, we’d love to give credit!)

I feel so privileged to have spent the past few days checking out @fcsoulstudio - an art studio created for adults with special needs to create and sell art of all kinds! Woods, ceramics, mixed media, fibers, weaving, digital arts- they’ve got it all. It was heartwarming to see the special needs community so empowered and developing their full potential.
I love a piece of clothing that has a good story behind it. This gorgeous shawl was hand-woven by an incredibly talented adult with special needs. You can’t see in the picture, but the detail that went into designing and physically making this dress is beyond what a machine can produce. another artist hand wove the belt as well.
The artist was gracious enough to let me style this shawl and pose for a picture.
Small, but mighty.🌱 Visited one of our partnering farms in Michigan as they plant and water for their last growing cycle of the season. For them, this little shrub represents hard work, opportunity, and healing.
The winner of the @hightimesmagazine#detroit#cannabiscup will be announced today, but to us this year's winner is #cherrywine. 💯

This is what we came for. That look on his face...the pure joy. We figured there was no better birthday gift than stepping into a world which he loves so dearly 🐷 and it was one of those experiences that makes you realize you’ll do anything to make your kids happy. You’ll drive 5 hours to peppa pig world. You’ll spend a fortune for chicken nuggets at rainforest cafe because you know he’ll be in awe. You’ll race to make it the zoo for the last hour before they close and see every animal along the way. You’ll buy a packnplay at Walmart because your hotel is out and put it together last minute, hoping he’ll sleep well. You’ll pack the car with every comfort from home, hoping to make the hotel feel cozy. You’ll load the iPad with favorite tv shows (peppa, obviously) and pack all the m&ms. You’ll leave a restaurant before the food comes because your baby boy is hungry and he is a priority, everything else be damned. You’ll be tired and ready for a long shower.
But most of all, you’ll think, this has been the best first vacation ever and how lucky you are to be his parents ❤️
