Husband: “why are we doing this?” Wife: “please don’t make it a big thing. It will only take a second” Husband: “there is gallon of sweat literally pouring down my leg, right now” Wife: “we will go get in the water as soon as we take this picture” Husband: “there.” Wife: “no, please put some effort into it. Like a decent angle” Husband: sighs “is this the whole reason we walked like a mile over here?” Wife: “you don’t need to have an attitude- we need some pictures. Did you get the shot?” Husband: “yes, like 500” Wife: “let me see- yeah... actually can we get a different angle than this?” Husband: “😳💀” . . - “The 5th day of Vacation”, A short story by Isabel Maertens. Unrelated, though... Thanks for always humoring me @emaertens 😜😂
This little lovey was mine as a baby. I LOVED that bunny and it shows. It’s totally out of beads and has many holes. My mama found it in storage during our move and seeing my sweet girl loving on it is so special and so sweet❤️😍. Absolutely love these precious moments in mamahood 🥰😍❤️ . . . . . #carryonmama #lovey #motherhood #motherhoodinspired #momblog #babygirl #motherblogger #denvercolorado #denvermama #mountainmama #milehighmamas
I have a real obsession with Christmas and because of it I have a tendency to go straight from celebrating Halloween to full-blown Buddy the elf. My husband has teased me about it for years but I think he secretly likes it 😏. This year I’m pretty proud of myself for avoiding Christmas stuff for 2 days (!!) and stocking up on chunky sweaters and fall-y earrings have helped me to embrace the season for a little longer. I can’t promise that you won’t be seeing pictures of Christmas decor in the next week... but for now I had to share my #successstory 😂😂 Also if you’re like me and like to support small businesses check out @bowsbyroseandmore! She makes adorable little head bows, bow tie clips, and earrings (sometimes matching 😱). Affordable and always cute!
Happy Halloween from Dwight, Angela, Sprinkles the cat (RIP), and the cutest astronaut ever! . . . . . #theoffice #happyhalloween #dwightandangela #dwightschrute #mountainmamas #halloween
Rediscovering the world through Bright’s eyes is such a joy. I love watching her learn and take everything in. She and Monty bring a sense of adventure to every little thing they do and it has made every day more beautiful for me and Eric. I’ll take snow any day of the year when it puts this kinda smile on my girls face 😍❤️ . . . . #brightoncaroline #chroniclesofmontykent #throughhereyes #bowsbyrose #bowsbyroseandmore #mountainmama #coloradomoms #denvermama #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherblogger
I’ve been somewhat quiet on this account for a while & there are plenty of reasons why, but the biggest one is that I have been struggling with chronic illness. It has been a very back & forth process & the Lord has taught me so much about myself and about Himself throughout it. While I can’t share all of that in a single post, one of the biggest things He has opened my eyes to is my idolatry of what people think of me. Whether it’s how I look when I’m sick or people’s judgements of my character... I have been very fearful about opening up & sharing this part of my life. I’ve been scared of the vulnerability & the possible judgment. I’ve been afraid of what people might think when they know I’ve been sick & then see me out and being active. I’m thankful to have wonderful friends & family who have encouraged me to feel free to share my story & struggles. They have also reminded me that God’s power is made perfect in my weakness & that there are others in similar situations and we can be an encouragement to each other. Because the truth about chronic illness is that it is very isolating. It can become all-consuming & makes it difficult to make & keep commitments. It is hard to talk about but also hard to talk about anything but. Chronic illness is hard on relationships. It doesn’t often make sense & isn’t always consistent. You can go through flares as well as “healthy” seasons & it can be confusing to the people in your life when you swing from one to the other. As a young mom who loves to be active and has a bad case of FOMO, I always want to take full advantage of days where I’m feeling well but often struggle with guilt as if I ‘should be’ in bed or resting. And I KNOW I’m not the only chronically ill person who feels that they need to give an explanation when they have a good day. My hope is that as I share my journey about my diagnosed diseases as well as my unexplained symptoms, others dealing with similar situations or suffering of any kind would feel understood, as if they have an outlet, and that they would know they’re not alone. If there is anyone who is struggling (in any way!) & needs an ear please know that I’m always here to lend mine... (comments)
