#sunsetsaturday - Sometimes I like to take old photos and reimagine them. In the version from last year I emphasized the road (scroll down feed to see). In this version I emphasized the sky. I think I like this one better. It’s always good to go back and take a second look at old photos. You are a different person each year, your vision grows and changes. In fact it might be fun to edit the same photo for many years and see if it is different each year 🤔 #highlightiowa #leadingyououtdoors #iowathroughthelens #igrewupiniowa #desmoinesphotographer #iowaphotographer #desmoinesphotos @iowadnr #iowaphotos #photooftheday #365photos #nationalparks #all_shots #wildlifephotography #traveliowa #takeitoutside @polkcountyconservation #midwest #ia365 #midwestlivingmag #iowa #ig_iowa #midwestlife #iowablessed #iowaviews #canon #captureiowa #aroundiowa #iowadnr @capture_iowa #captureiowa #thisisiowa

Cheers to a successful trip🍹
.
The past 11 days have felt like a whirlwind (besides the last two that I spent on the couch and in bed sleeping🤧) but I am so glad I was able to make the trip to Nashville for my cousin’s bachelorette and to Iowa to spend some time with family🖤
.
Ya girl hasn’t been in the gym since Wednesday and that is a-okay, but I’m ready to get home, get a routine going, and feel like I’m finally able to establish my life in our new home. I’m also a pretty eager beaver to see my husband and our fur kids😍
.
One flight down. One flight to go. Happy Saturday frands✌🏻

My sister is so good at remembering to capture the moment with fun, little photo shoots. This was after a downtown lunch date with our Mama.

Saturday.
Sometimes you hop out of bed ready to run and dominate the day and other days you sleep in an extra hour & a 1/2, roll out of bed, and have to suck your liquid gold straight outta the container.

Today's good mood and double workout is brought to you by previously mentioned liquid gold 😁

We have a new game you can play at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge this week. It’s called “find the goldfinch in the yellow flowers.” It’s like “Where’s Waldo” only better. #highlightiowa #iowadnr #iowaphotos #photooftheday #365photos #nationalparks #all_shots #traveliowa #takeitoutside #midwest #ia365 #midwestlivingmag #iowa #ig_iowa #midwestlife #iowablessed #iowaviews #bison #prairie #photooftheday #smile #picoftheday #beautiful #amazing #nature #nwr #centraliowa #nationalrefuge #thisisiowa #iowaoutdoors

Enjoy the simple things in life like brewed coffee or tea, a great view and home cooked meals. Don't worry about everything that needs to get done, take your time, take a deep breath and relax.

In my religion, we have a wonderful newly canonized saint, #StPaisios who told the most wonderful little story about how to be happy. .
.
When asked about how to not be scandalized by stories we hear around us, he replied that there are two kinds of people: flies and bees 🐝. Flies can be in a 🌺 garden with only one small piece of rotting food in the dirt and that is where you will find the fly, with the filth. But a bee 🐝 can be in a landfill and if even one flower 🌸 is growing up in that trash, the bee will be there. So when we hear about all the things going on in the world, be like the bee 🐝 and find the flowers 💐. .

Double up and conquer! 👊 Saturday morning power cakes for the littles AND I doubled the batch for meal prep. Win! Now we have chocolate pancakes for the entire week. I love weekends!

Simply make pancakes as usual, line in single layer on parchment paper in freezer, when frozen transfer to air tight container. 🥞 Do you buy prepackaged frozen pancakes or make your own in bulk?!? I’d love to hear!

#wheeloffortune When you have good moments in your life, make sure you enjoy to the fullest, for what comes up must always go down. The same is true in reverse - when you are in a bad situation, things will eventually become better again. 🌟🌟🌟 This beautiful old mirrored game wheel was produced by Evans Co. in Chicago IL. #polkamusicinthebackground #midwestlife #spinningwheelsgottogoround #youbet

The calm before the storm🚘 When you live only a few blocks off Woodward you have 2 options...1)Embrace it! or 2)Get out of town! This year we are embracing the #woodwarddreamcruise by enjoying the day. Say what you will about the Dream Cruise, but there’s something exciting about seeing so many people come together for one common thing and just have fun!! We also realized last year that our little one is a born cruiser as when we walked her up her first comment was “oh no...we forgot our chairs!!”🤣She has now been asking if it’s “Dream Cruise Day” for a week so when she wakes up and hears the cars engines her day will be made!! #puredetroit #detroitmade #detroitproud #woodwardave #woodwarddreamcruise #woodwardavenue #dreamcruise #cars #puremichigan #detroitmichigan #saturdaymorning #michiganmom #michiganlife #midwestlife #metrodetroit #metrodetroitmom #embraceit #momonamitten #michigrammers #iphonepic

.

Parenting was tough today! The kids are so used to their routine at day care and staying home with Mom today came with it’s challenges and at times, it wasn’t pretty.
.
There were multiple meltdowns, going through the store with a child bawling, and breaking a bright pink nail polish bottle ...in the middle of the store 😶...to name a few.
.
.
This mommy is exhausted and feeling defeated 😓....but then I look at pics like this, and it makes my heart so happy! 🙂
.
.
Remember, tomorrow’s another day and a chance to make it better than yesterday! Hang in there Mommy’s, you’ve got this!

And thus ends a couple of the most challenging weeks that I've had in a long time. I will say they have taught me a thing or two about patience, that's for sure. (229/365)

🎾🎾🎾 I played tennis today with a couple of ladies for the first time in over a year. I played really competitively in high school but once I had kids I picked up the racquet less and less. It was so fun to get out and play today but man I know I’m going to be sore! My elbow was aching after a few games!! Deep Blue Rub has saved me today (and probably tomorrow too!). It’s so good for muscle and joint support and I love that it’s an all natural cream too! Tag someone you think you could some!! 💙💙💙

You go to Friday night volleyball games at your husband’s old high school when your schools don’t have football.
I’m totally ok with this too! 🏐🖤❤️
