A year ago I started dreading my impending 40th bday. I hated the idea and how old 40 seemed to me. I threatened my family if they celebrated my birthday and wanted to spend the actual day being sad and mourning my youth 😂 This week I’ve spent some time reflecting on how 41 is creeping up in the next few months. But instead of dreading it this year I’m embracing it. Age is just a number. And this year I realize older also means wiser. I work harder and smarter, I eat better, I love more, I don’t let the fear of failure stop me , and i push for making memories more. Yes my body doesn’t look the same. Things sag in all the wrong places, lines form where there weren’t any before, etc.. but those battle scars tell my story. In a lot of ways I feel more alive now than at 19. I know myself better, I’m kinder to myself, and instead of judging people over silly things I now choose to love people. I’m not sure getting older (wiser) is so bad after all ❤️
Our whole family is so excited! @brooklynandbailey are launching their SPRING COLLECTION TODAY! This has been a long time in the making and we can't wait for y'all to try all of the new products. Make sure to hurry because there's limited quantities!
Today is our 10th Anniversary on @YouTube! 🎉 I was a mom simply styling my 4 young daughters’ hair on my bathroom counter every morning, when I decided to document the styles on a blog so I wouldn’t forget them. I had NO IDEA that decision to share hair tutorials would lead to each of you, the many amazing people we’ve met the world over, the wonderful experiences we’ve had, and the incredible new things we’ve learned from you in just those short 10 years! We are humbled and grateful. From my family, including @brooklynandbailey, @kamrinoel, and now @rylanoliviamcknight, to Daxton and Paisley, we can’t thank you enough for your love and support, and are so happy to have you as a part of our family!❤️ #behindthebraids#cutegirlshairstyles

These are my people (missing Dax and Shaun) My world. My ❤️. Yesterday I was thinking about analog vs digital moments in my kids lives and was again hit by the fact that it’s our generation’s responsibility to be the bridge that navigates and empowers these kids to #dogood in the sea of chaos that is the internet. * It’s made even more difficult by the fact that we weren’t taught those skills by our parents because it literally didn’t exist. So we become the bridge between the two worlds. The groundbreakers. The first of many after us to embrace and use technology for good. It can be a confusing and tedious task but it’s our responsibility as parents today to guide them! * On Sat we are hosting the first Tech Reset Workshop in Salt Lake City. An event designed to help parents EMPOWER our kids in using their technology. And I grabbed some of the remaining tickets to give to some of you! * Each ticket includes more than $150 worth of guides to strengthen your family, treats from local businesses, cool products we love, and a chance to win some other awesome prizes including a @traegergrills and passes to @brightonresort. * This is a one time only event and I want to give a few tickets away to spread the love. * All you have to do is: •tag a friend in the comments you want to go with to the Tech Reset Project! * That’s it! I will pick a few winners to give a ticket to you and who you tagged. Then you can feel empowered to empower your kids and we will all become stronger! * The Tech Reset Workshop is at @theleonardoslc on Saturday, March 16 at 9 am. * Presenters include Rachael Herrscher of @todaysmama, Anna from @annaistheworst, Matt McKee of @barktechnologies, and me!
