This big hairy goofball is 3 today!
When I became a mom 21 year ago I quickly realized how much help and support I was going to need if I was going to figure it all out, stay sane & not totally screw up my kid. 
I needed the amazing resource of other moms to give me advice, encouragement & someone to laugh & cry with. 
I needed friends, family, neighbors... a tribe, a village, a support system of moms who could help along the way. 
Without the right support motherhood is hard, even scary. Without someone to have your back you can feel lost. 
So I want to invite you to be a part of my tribe. It is my hope that through my blog, my social media and my emails I can reach through and give you the support you need. 
Today I launched Moms United, a community and monthly resource designed to support and inspire moms & make space for true connection.

Wishing you a little sweetness & a lot of love this Valentine's Day! 
How do you celebrate? Hot date? Wine, chocolate & roses? Nothing at all? 
We do small gifts for the boys & that's all. We have a whole lotta love all the time! (I do buy clearance chocolate though! But I do that at Easter & Christmas too! 😂) #farfromnormal #valentine #valentinesday #chocolate #chocoholic
Start where you are. 
It is easy to make excuses that get you stuck & stagnant where you are. You dont have the time, the space, the money, the support.

Excuses are always there to fall back on and not push out of your comfort zone or face the uncomfortable places that need attention.

What do you want? Do you want to be healthier? Do you want to be a more present parent? You can find a way even if it is just a tiny bit each day, progress is progress. 
Even if it means starting a daily yoga practice on a sliver of bedroom floor surrounded by your bed, a giant dog crate and a never empty basket of laundry.... # farfromnormal #momlife #intentionalliving #liveauthentic #liveyourlife #startwhereyouare #whatdoyouwant #momgoals #momswithgoals #yoga
Black leggings, furry boots & Starbucks... Call me basic if you want, I'm comfy, cozy & caffinated!! Seriously though, march to your own beat my friends. If that means being crazy different then be it, if it means jumping on an awesome bandwagon then do that too.

Or do a little of both. Just be authentic in being you!! # farfromnormal #authentic #liveauthentic #liveyourlife #momlife #mom #intentional #lifeisbeautiful #beyourself #beyou

My dear momma friends,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do not discount the mundane, every day parts of life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They are not exciting, they are not glamorous, but they hold great importance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While big moments and events can change our life, and create lasting memories, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is in the in-between days that add up. It is the hundreds of meals, the tucking in each night, the kissing of boo-boos and reading of bedtime stories that create the foundation for the big moments to hold their importance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each day you are doing something significant, something profound, each day you are creating stability, security, and a foundation of love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each day you are creating an extraordinary ordinary life that is nothing short of beautiful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My phone keeps alerting me that it is low on storage space.... So I'm moving some things to the cloud.

Based on this math I've concluded 2 things. 1- My smart phone is not so smart & 2- I can't trust it to accurately figure out how much storage space it actually has! 😂😂😂 #farfromnormal #stupidphone #funny #mathskills
Life is meant to be full if joy!! It is meant to be filled with love & laughter and meaning.

It is ok to follow your own compass, to blaze your own trail and to live life in a way that other people think is "weird"

Be true to you. Raise your kids to be themselves & listen to your momma instincts. 
Make decisions based on what is best for your family, not on what other people will think! 
Support your friends when they share their big dreams. Give the people you love space to be who they truly are! 
And give yourself permission to be who you truly are!! #farfromnormal #parenthood #liveauthentic #intentionalliving #intentionalparenting #parenting #momlife #momcommunity

I got to spend an afternoon full of laughter, fun & food with my amazing family.

These women have helped shape who I am and I am so thankful for each & every one of them ❤❤ @willow_spring_life  @debibryanhirkala @sjkinemond
