I force myself to step away from Instagram sometimes because constantly seeing perfectly curated and styled homes/lives full of the latest & greatest things, though inspiring, inevitably makes me discontented & grouchy. No one really lives that charmed of a life, do they? (If you do, call me maybe.) So I occasionally take an Instagram hiatus because my ego is fragile and frail, mutter "Comparison is the thief of joy" to myself, & the fog lifts to show me that what we have is more than enough.  The rest is just noise (but I wouldn't say no to a bigger house πŸ€”) Wha-- who said that?! {This is a before & after of our modest little main bathroom.  We've been chipping away at this reno since 2009 😳  More on the blog.}
He's growing up SO fast. Stay little forever, Fozzy! Slow down, time! #momlife #thestruggleisreal #allthefeels #letthembelittle #momswithcameras πŸ˜‰πŸΆ

I need to be more decisive. Adulting is hard. (Regram thanks to @topknotweddings aka one of the funniest gals I don't know in real life but wish I did.)
I should've known better than to ask her to pose for my blog post #appledoesntfallfarfromthetree (Sharing this feisty 5-year-old's favorite books on the blog πŸ“š I'd love to hear your recommendations!)
She hasn't let me pick out her clothes for months now. When she waltzes out in her ensembles, we do the usual "You look beautiful!" exclamations but lately I've been frantically shouting "And you're smart! And kind! And brave!" (it's like I want her to be a Gryffindor) & she's all "Are you ok, Mommy?" 😞🍷 #raisingagirl #justgettingstarted #overthinker  #strongdaughters #selfworth
On this important day in American history, as Quinn got ready for school, I attempted to explain a presidential inauguration to her....I rambled on about the peaceful transfer of power & how even if people disagree politically, we all deserve respect & above all, equal rights. By then she got distracted & I kinda just wanted someone to hand me a glass of wine & hold me while I google funny Joe Biden memes all day πŸ˜…πŸ˜¦πŸ˜­ 🍷 #allthefeels

Peace on earth, good will toward all. This time of year always prompts me to reflect on our blessings, but I would be remiss if I didn't say that the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo has been heavy on our minds & hearts. There's a link in my bio of ways to help. Wishing you all health & happiness, friends πŸ’–
'Tis the season!🌲 My holiday decor is driven by "How easily can I take all this crap down come January?" πŸ˜€ #minimalist

A new fire has been lit. I hope it is one that sparks us to prioritize & instill in our children: compassion, kindness, bravery, respectfulness, and open-minded thinking. To empower our daughters.  To not fuel fear, nor live in fear. #somuchworkahead
