My big boy! I'll just ignore the fact that he'll be 11 months next week because my heart just can't handle it. Gdje leti vrijeme? Ni okrenuti se neću, a već ćemo puhati svjećicu u obliku velikog broja 1 na torti. ♡
You are looking at the life behind Mesa, and our whole heart 💗
Life might be hectic starting a new business, working or momming full time, and somehow (though not very well) trying to find time to decompress and enjoy alone time. ...maybe even drink a hot latte from our machine there (who am I kidding, it’s always cold). But Ryan and I wouldn’t have it any other way. •
Living off of worship music and scripture these days and this song by @cmcclarney God of Miracles has been on repeat:
... Let faith arise in spite of
what I see Lord I believe
But help my unbelief
I choose to trust You
No matter what I feel, let faith arise... ... This world is shaking
but You cannot be shaken
My heart is breaking
but I'm not broken yet
Your love is fearless
Help me to be courageous too
Oh there is nothing impossible...

*Mind the GAP!*
Connie never lets me put her hood up, Katie put hers up and suddenly it's the best thing ever to do 😂 These poor kids got stuck on the motorway in traffic this evening but I don't think Connie minded half so much once Katie was in the car next to her!
Connie slept through last night, it's only about the fourth time it's ever happened but I'm hopeful each time that it might continue! I wake up a bit dazed from all the sleep each time she does it then immediately check that she's ok because it's so out of the ordinary! 😂
Ya know sometimes the voices in our heads overshadow the voice of others around us! Sometimes we get so caught up in our own feelings and hurt and need to be heard we forget to listen! I just want to use this platform today to let you know @m_lefleur I am so proud of you! Not only am I always proud to be out with this big beefcake 😍But proud of you as a person, of your heart and your efforts!
Both of us grew up with so much shame, guilt, belittling , neglect and abuse! We both lost parents at an early age... it’s baggage we carry with us daily! In a perfect world you get married have kids and right your parents wrongs! You are everything they weren’t and life is great! In reality we are wired to be them!
It’s hard to be an amazing father or husband when you weren’t given the blueprint to a loving relationship! Or the tools to build love and trust! After so many years of looking out for yourself it has not always been easy for you to let down your walls of vulnerability! However all we can ever expect is effort! Constant effort and love! And with that, change will come! You provide for us , we live an amazing life ... it comes with a lot of ups and downs, hills and valleys, but that’s ok! It’s all part of the journey! As long as we give the kids the love they need all day everyday ... it’s gonna be ok! As long as we hear each other , lift each other up and catch each other when we fall, we couldn’t ask for anything more! A lesson for us all.... We can’t give up! Excuses do not work!! Have a grateful heart every single day! #askbelieveandreceive#iloveyouthismuch 💕

#realtalk a lot of these past few weeks have been a lot me on the couch, nursing and pumping with my @ardobreastfeeding pump. For the first time in 3 kids, breastfeeding is actually working—which is such a win considering I had #breastreductionsurgery when I was a teen. 🤱🏾 Thank goodness for Netflix 😅 Any tips for a first time breastfeeding mama?
I’m not any less deserving of love because of my size. I’m not any less deserving of respect because of my size. I’m not any less deserving of sexy lingerie because of my size.
Do you see a trend here?
Being plus size, too thin, too short, too tall, having saggy boobs or loose skin doesn’t make you any less worthy.
Any less beautiful.
Any less visible.
I used to be obsessed with being thin.
It was more important to me than my happiness.
Being thin was all that mattered. And what for? I was unhappy, starving, anemic and just a shell holding in who I was really meant to be.
I have wide hips and love handles.
I have cellulite and a huge gap between my breasts.
I also have a soul.
A heart. A personality. Strong opinions.
A loving husband and a beautiful daughter.
But most importantly, I have self respect.
Because even if I don’t fit into your mold, I am still worthy.
All women are beautiful.
And they ALL deserve to feel that way.
