Mom Feels....

IMG_6329.JPG

💋 Today I kissed them all and sent the kiddos to school. What a drastic change. I am so grateful for the summer and the memories I made with this crew. My heart almost hurts from the good. I think bc I know that this stage can’t last forever and it’s unhealthy for me to desire it to. But I still do it all the time. I did it when they were tiny and I do it today. BUT in the midst of that wishing I also can’t wait to live life by their side and watch them do incredible things. Just feeling the heart mom feels ♥️ and loving and appreciating them. Every. One. #backtoschool 🚌

Hope

Doing my best to E..X..T..E..N..D....... these last days of summer. I adore it. I adore seeing my kids faces more, hanging with them and less on the schedule!! But...... I am totally looking forward to working on some things I have been up to lately! - 
To me it’s interesting how many challenges can be right in front of our face but at the same time to be excited about all the good. HOPE is a forever need in our lives. Do any and all things you need to to continue to renew hope in your life all.the.time! It’s what gets us through the challenges and helps us to create new. Looking forward to the next phase with tons of hope!

Little Jamaica

IMG_6170.JPG

Such a gem of a spot!  Little Jamaica is located north east of Mesquite Nevada, literally right under the freeway. The sound is a bit of a drawback and sometimes the trash people leave can be off putting but other than that this place makes for a really great destination. 

The main pool is the one you see here. The water flows from this pool into the Virgin river.  It makes for some fun jumping spots, depending on the height of the river, for the kiddos. You can also hang just below the pool at the river. It provides lots of areas for tons of fun! 

I definitely recommend this place for a day filled with fun!

Rope Swing Pit Stop?

This dreamy summer haven was such a blast!  Four rope swings total and lots of trees to jump from and plenty of water to swim and play in. We all had a blast and it is our new favorite pit stop!

 

It is located right off the I-15 when traveling through Utah. Exit Mona and look up Burraston Ponds. It is around 5 minutes from the freeway. So glad we discovered this place!

Not My Favorite: Utkatasana

IMG_6066.JPG

Chair is never a pose I do on my own accord. It’s just not my favorite, it never has been. Weird huh? Like of all the poses in yoga? 🧘🏻‍♀️ Here’s a secret though. One day my yoga teacher @lilmisslisajean taught me, that the pose you resist most is the one you need most. 🤣 Of course it is, right?


But you know, since that day I do this pose differently. Instead of resisting, I accept and it makes all the difference. I think I will forever “need” utkatasana!

Thai Summer Salad

FullSizeRender 133.jpg

Ingredients:

8 oz linguini fini

2 lbs grilled chicken

3 carrots

4 c chopped greens, washed and dried

2 c purple cabbage 

2 peppers - red, yellow or orange

1 cucumber

1/2 red onion

Honey roasted peanuts

 

Dressing ingredients:

4 Tbl soy sauce

5 tea sesame oil

2 Tbl rice wine vinegar

6 Tbl honey

3/4 c vegetable oil

1 lime juice & zest

1 c peanut butter

4 tea minced garlic

2 T minced ginger

1 bunch cilantro

1 tea kosher salt

4 tea sriracha sauce

6 T water

*I recommend making the dressing ahead of time. It’s simple but it has a lot of ingredients. There is absolutely no substitute for it, it is incredible.  It keeps in teh fridge well so I make a lot and use it for a couple weeks on salads and noodles or whatever you can dream up. You just add everything to the blender & blend and walls it’s done!

Cook noodles, rinse and toss with olive oil so they will not stick.

Grill and slice chicken.

Shred carrots. Chop all the rest of the veggies. Combine in a big bowl. Serve with dressing and top with honey roasted peanuts. CRAZY GOOD!

Positive Vibes

💫Surrounding ourselves with positive messages and vibes is absolutely necessary to keep our thoughts and 🧠 in a good place. 


I love how @glyderapparel encourages women to live life without limits and to discard the words “I can’t” from our vocabulary. I love their message to empower women. I am thrilled to be a #GlyderGirl 🙌🏼

I'm going to make it

IMG_3932.JPG

HEY! You know what? I’m going to make it and so are you. I was recently asked how I was doing and I gave a canned, "I’m doing pretty good" answer and when I asked him the same thing he happily said, “You know, Im going to make it.”

I ♥️ this answer. Real and optimistic. Whatever you are going through you will make it! There is just no avoiding the mud in life but there is a light. Get this..

When you start digging a well you’re just moving dry dirt, and sometimes you dig for a very long time. And then you might hit mud and maybe that seems even worse. You have to go through all of that before you hit water💦 . Before you make a well. Keep in mind many wells were dug by one person, long ago but their work has benefited people for thousands of years. Keep digging, you are going to make it!
