#tbt When you look back at old photos of yourself and realize: 👧🏾
1. You were a #weirdo then and a weirdo now, your ‘awkward’ stage never ended...
😝
2. That sweater, floral turtleneck and headband...gotta love 90s fashion!
😂
3. Those Deon Sanders were fresh AF 🔥Why didn’t I preserve them!? 😭 #1998 #90sfashion #awkwardphase #oldschoolsneakers

My first selfies circa 1992-1993ish at 10 or 11-years-old 😂😂😂😂😂😂 (I wish I still had that choker in the bottom pic) #nationalselfieday #tbt #awkwardphase

Thanks to @casey.sholtis for this ultimate throwback. Obviously the camera obsession has been long withstanding. Thankful the polo shirts buttoned up to my chin are no longer a thing. I also had my pierced ears 😂 #tbt #awkwardphase

Ah puberty, such a wonderful thing. I was going through pictures to take with me to Disney and realized how much I have changed. Good thing I learned how to put on sunscreen. 😂 #awkwardphase #disneycollegeprogram #teamedward

Oh hey red 🤦🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️ I guess most transitions to blonde go through this awkward stage but whyyyyy anyway until the next lot there’s always statement lip and filters to get me through. #blonde #blondeshavemorefun #dotheytho #awkwardphase #destroyingmyonlyasset #shestillcantsitwithus #ididntwanttoanyway #transition #newdo #hair #hairathome #justdont #fuzzy #ineedunitostart #stillalive

Funny story: my property manager sent someone to cut these downs since they thought they were out of control weeds/unwanted trees 😂😂😂 #uglyduckling #sunflowers🌻

Well the day has come where you embark on your next chapter in Chicago. Me saying “I’m gonna miss ya” is an understatement. Your friendship has meant so much to me over the years and you have been there for me through some of life’s biggest challenges and through many seasons of change. A lot of my favorite memories (and cringy ones) involve you. I’m so happy that we went through our awkward phases together (see last photo 😉) and I’m really happy for you that you at least grew out of yours. 😬 I look forward to our many FaceTime hangouts and I know that distance won’t change a thing. Chicago is ready for ya! #bestiesfortheresties #bestfriend #lnk #chicago #friendship #laugh #awkwardphase

Pride Post #2:
Three pics from my 7th grade yearbook. Despite trying out for sports, intentionally speaking low so I don’t “sound like a girl”, and only wearing “boy brands” like QuickSilver, no one is buying my heterosexuality. The pic of me making masks in Drama class does not help the cause. Neither does the sparkly headband holding my hair back. .

Aye, aye. This is your Captain Clover👨🏻✈️🛥️! *
Taking advantage of a free afternoon and mild-ish temperatures with breeze (I’m not good in warm weather); we took a short trip on the Thames River Boat. While waiting to board, I did get quite agitated. But once we got moving, and I was up deck to see what’s going on, I settled down.
*
Being now 19months old, mama is keen to continue expand/re-socialise me on more and different experiences. As recently I’ve become more timid of new things: incl bolting out of the park onto the road when another dog made me nervous!😧.
*
So all tips from experienced pawparents are welcomed to ensure I remain a chilled pup through this tough teenage phase.😘🐾🍀

I have to be honest. And hopefully this either answers some questions or kills some curiosity.

I told myself I'd never date someone with a child. For what I thought were understandable reasons- you want your own kids, not someone else's. Zakk told me about Ella on our 2nd date, which at the time, was when he hadn't even been allowed to see her in 7 months... not his doing.

After only our first date, Zakk felt natural to me. He felt comfortable. He felt familiar. He was fun, happy, smiley, playful and I could tell careful. I think back and it's almost like time just kept on. I kept living my life how I wanted and he just happened to fit right in.

After 3 months of being together, Zakk was "reintroduced" to Ella for the first time in 10 months. Very shortly after, I met her for the first time.

Since then, the amount of time we have her just continues to grow. First it was driving to Illinois 3 times a week to see her for 2 hours at a time... then it was back-to-back days for 7 hours at time... then it was an overnight stay.

Sometimes when I think about it, I still have a hard time imaging this life we're creating where I play a parental role to a child that isn't mine. I think how odd it must be or must have been for my family, friends and acquaintances to watch this all unfold. I bet you they'd say they couldn't have pictured me here either. Hell, I was never even a kid person.

Where I'm going with all of this is that sometimes life takes us on unexpected paths. Sometimes life knows better than you do... Sometimes you just have to continue to follow all the good instead of fight it off. Sometimes you have to forget about a vision you once had for yourself. Sometimes you have to finally be happy with the direction your life is growing.

I've always been an old soul. I've always been "older" than my age... growing up too quickly is something I did early and being a 25-year-old "parent" to 1.5-year-old little girl feels much more natural than I ever could have imagined.

This is raw. This is vulnerable. This is real. This is life. I know I'm not alone in this position and I know there are a lot more supporters than not. (continued)

The fuzzy little canal cygnets have grown into "bignets"! Nice job parenting, swan mom and dad.

12 years ago this girl on fire came into my life, and boy has it been exciting ever since! Besides bringing fun and adventure everywhere she goes, her honest, bold, loyal, heart makes it easy to love her. Thanks for being my person, Elisabeth Honey 💛 Happy Birthday! #hbd #myperson #bff #oldies #awkwardphase #goodtimes #moretocome

Had a pretty good leg day today and feeling good about myself today. I was watching the office last night and i can relate to something funny Darryl says... about how he has been working out and has been building muscle... but under everything hahah. He said it’s that awkward phase before the fat goes away 🤣 yup. That’s me 🙋🏼‍♀️ #awkwardphase #fitfam #instafit #fitchick #girlswholift #chickswholift #fitmom #anytimefitness #theoffice #legday #progress

Amiga linda 💕 primero que nada, lo siento mucho por algunas de estas fotos, he buscado en lo más profundo de mi compu y he visto cosas horribles. Gracias por quererme en mi fase más fea. Gracias por quererme por diez años.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nada me haría más feliz que poder verte en persona para tu cumple, o que un billón de dólares libres de impuestos. También me haría muy feliz ver tu cara cuando veas estas fotos 😭
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ya sabés que te extraño mucho y que soy feliz de que hayás dado una nueva vuelta al sol. Lo que no sabías es que la próxima vez que vengás te voy a obligar a tomarte *buenas* fotos conmigo, porque tenemos demasiadas fotos de cuando éramos jóvenes, pero no de ahora en que somos más señoras y más sabias (#señoras).

Special delivery from Sp!r!t
Do what you must do to put the faith back in yourself. Sometimes it requires you to be silent and be still and sometimes it requires you to laugh put loud.
But however you feel guided to your personal power know that we each must experience spiritual growing pains just as our bodies do so does the soul.

In honor of the #tonyawards here’s me making one of my final performances on stage as an alligator that likes to read in the Missoula Children’s Theater rendition of the Frog Prince. Encourage your kids to participate in the arts because art makes life beautiful. #tonydreaming #missoulachildrenstheatre #awkwardphase #middleschooldays

Social Media Challenge
Day 7: Throw Back Thursday!

Throw back Thursday goes out my sisters and taking photos a few years ago. I have 3 sisters total, 2 older and 1 younger. We are all 2 years apart... that's a good thing because if we ever forget someone's age, all we have to do is simple addition!
This first photo is when the littlest sister was born. I'm the little one with the blonde hair and purple polka dot shirt. And then both of my parents and my dearest grandmother 💕

If you dad was cool enough to stick by you during the awkward phases, then he deserves a card.
Father’s Day is 11 days away...just sayin

The #GloUp is real.
I dont trust people who never went thru an awkward phase. It builds character 😂🤣😂
Like..."so you've always been pretty?! GTFO"
I had terribly crooked teeth growing up. Struggled with bad skin and being bullied for being outspoken and conservative. Didn't get boobs till I was 24. Kids made fun of my tall forehead/fivehead. I struggled w the insecurity of stretch marks on my hips since 9th grade. I still get adult acne and struggle w the challenges lupus brings. 🤷‍♀️ I have never been and probably never will be the most popular.
But I am very me.

Number of Days Left: 14
How appropriate. Posting a photo of 14 year old me on the night of freshman year homecoming, on day 14 of this countdown. I literally can feel the awkwardness seep through this photo. It burns lmao. But honestly this year was the beginning stages of the most darkest periods of my life and all I can say is I’m very happy I gone through it. Seriously I’ve grown because of it and so many lessons were learned. #selfgrowth #issacountdown #tb❤️ #awkwardphase #teenybopper #puberty #growinup #junebaby #summer #reflection

At the risk of circulating pictures of myself during the most awkward phase of my life, I felt the urge to share some of my best days as a Caps fan. Getting to watch the Caps win their first Stanley Cup Final home game in history was freaking surreal! We want the cup! #awkwardphase #ALLCAPS #thanksdad #terps
