"As I’ve grown, I’ve grown out of help. I no longer need someone to hold my unsteady hand while walking up the metal stairs that sound like the pitter-patter of rain. I no longer need someone to fill the seat between the aisle and me because I’m able to sit up by myself. I have become an independent structure claimed by society. I don’t remember the last time I have created a world in my mind filled with colorful trees and the unsung way the coated branches will dance to song." —an excerpt from @graceserr's "From the Left Side of the Bus."

We had our yearly Panda Express dinner for this new three-year-old! Scroll over to see his birthday tradition though the years. And read my last post for WHY we get Chinese food every year. 💁🏻♂️➡️🍲 + 💁🏼🗣= 👶🏼😳 // What are some of your families birthday traditions?
Definitely one of those days when I wish I had a personal chef to make dinner! But seriously enjoyed having @chefchristanwillis share her amazing culinary skills at our @serenbe lunch. See more over on the blog - link in profile! #lemigaevents#lemigastyleguide Photo by @carterelitestudio
With the three big kids at camp this week and just the 2 littles at home, our space is feeling pretty quiet. Caden and #avaleeannie are looking forward to ZERO plans this evening. What you see right here is about as crazy as it will get for the next 24 hours. 😃 .
Photos from being in England keep popping up on my @timehop and then I received an email this morning for super cheap flights. I exercised self control and didn't buy them but the itch to travel sure is strong. Anyone up from some European adventuring?!
I have been meaning to do this for a while! I want to share this page with you guys in case anyone wants to follow this incredible, beautiful, mindful mama & her 3 gorgeous boys. (Star children I'm sure ✨😉) This amazing lady happens to be my best friend from high school!!! & though we live far apart now & both have very busy lives, the LOVE is ALWAYS there 💜& I feel blessed to be able to see into her life on a daily basis, be inspired by her & watch her precious seeds grow into the generation of people we need to really bring love & compassion back to this planet. I hope you check out her page, @bohemianandbarefoot & especially read this inspiring post!! We all go through various challenges, one of Brittany's being autoimmune disease (which she has been strong enough to raise awareness about & share her journey with others), but at the end of the day we stay strong & keep working at being the best version of ourselves that we can be! Daily. With self love. ❤️ I love you girl, keep being the bright light that you are!!! 💫😘 ・・・
Progress > Perfection. This has taken me a really long time accept. I still have a hard time with it. I've been working on a 30 day yoga challenge and a huge part of this challenge for me is accepting where I am now and building from it! I have danced my entire life and the hardest part about getting older, for me, has been how hard it is to keep up my strength and flexibility. There have been chunks of time over the past few years where I wasn't able to work out, dance or even stretch and every time I felt like I had to start over. So here's to acceptance, drive and self love. .#shareyourselflove @dazey_la .
Do ever have those songs that just get to you? The ones that make you feel something? I've been listening to @judahandthelion's, Suit and Jacket on repeat. If you haven't heard it, you should go do that right now, and you can thank me later. ☺️ What's your favorite song?
Спустя столько лет повторили наш излюбленный "детский" маршрут. Пейзажи поменялись, но чувства и эмоции те же. Просто "свои люди" так и остались своими, и с ними будет комфортно в любой точке земного шара. #postthepeople#kazan
Hij is mislukt. De taart. Aan de smaak lag het niet en aan alle kleine helpers ook niet. De geur was heeerlijk in huis en de bovenkant zag er ook top uit. Jammer dat de onderkant meer op een pudding leek. Naja, het plezier vooraf maakte veel goed. Dus dat ding heel uit de springvorm halen lukte niet, daarom hem maar op het bordje in een 'punt' geboetseerd. En met een beetje slagroom... 🙌 #littlehelpers#applepie#fail#momlife#enjoythemoment
let's not make one worse than the other. let us also not justify one over the other if a labor trafficked victim just happened to be an undocumented immigrant.
both are terribly, wrong. it's people, that matter here. good talk. #EVERYfacematters
