CALIF♥️RNIA this picture is of my home, the same land I was born and raised on. My parents still own this property and have lived in the same house my entire life. That stall filled with firewood behind me is where we sheltered my first pony. This is Northern California... the trees are tall, the grasses are wild and the sky is big. My whole life I’ve known the threat of wild fire. When I was 4 we were evacuated for the 49er Fire and just last year fire swept across Nevada County threatening my familys land again. This is a yearly occurrence where I’m from and my Father’s business is dedicated to creating defensible space around people’s homes and with the forest service to do try and prevent as much devastation as possible. I have never seen such tragedy as the Paradise Camp Fire, this is a sister community and the loss these people have sustained is earth shattering. I know the sound of fire bombers and when I hear them fly over I’m always prepared to go, but these people didn’t even have that kind of signal. Please if you can go to the link in my bio and donate to the North Valley Community Foundation, they are in my opinion the most direct way of getting these people the help they need. Thank you. #nvcf #campfire #norcalfires ••• #thatauthenticfeeling #loveandalliscoming #starseed #empath #littlestoriesofmylife #everydaymoments #lovelylittlesquares #thepursuitofjoy #lifewellcaptured #kindredmemories #beyondthewanderlust #pursuewhatislovely #lovingtheordinarymoments #seekthesimplicity #momentsofmine #nevadacounty #grassvalley #nevadacity #norcal #northerncalifornia #vegan #veganlife #veganlifestyle #lovemylife #goodvibes #abundancemindset

You know, very few things are Instagram-perfect. I know that we’ve all heard that, but it’s good to remember. I’m sitting on the couch in my pajamas that I threw on the second I got home from work. On the days when things are totally not instagram-worthy, I still reach for this @Morphe palette. It’s the perfect consistency and glides on. I feel like Morphe can be a little overrated, but it totally deserves it. What’s your every day favorite, for glam days, or less than glam days?⠀

Life is short. We hear it all the time. But, it becomes more evident to me as I get older. We are on this planet for a reason and that reason should serve others just as it does ourselves.
We by design were meant to thrive not just survive. What are you waiting for?

This is to the girl that says “Boom chicka laka” everytime she goes to the bathroom.
The girl that always starts our family dinner with “zee zee what’s your high today?
The girl that can’t live without her daddy but will fall asleep in two seconds on my chest.
The girl that literally has me belly laughing everyday.
We are so lucky to have your endless sunshine and your perfect timing shade!
My sweet Audrella!
Does anyone else have a spicy kid?

I highly recommend having a baby sister so little that you occasionally refer to her as your own son's "big sister." The bond between Sarah and Cyrus is the most precious thing to me. Yesterday she came over and the two of them played with blocks and cars all over the house while I tackled bleaching the bathrooms and deep cleaning the medicine cabinet. How can it be her 12th birthday next week? So thankful for this little Thanksgiving baby, and that even though I had to leave for college when she was a toddler, I got to come back and watch her grow up. .

My heart has been drawn to rest lately. In a bustling season of preschool and work and carpool and activity...constant motion....I’ve been pulled over and over again back to one question: WHY? Why do I rush? Why do I schedule so much? Why won’t I rest? Why is hustle good? WHY? I’ve been studying what God has to say about Sabbath. Praying over my own purpose here with Selah. And I’m asking big questions about how I live my life. And I’m wondering. What if I just didn’t do it all? What if my kids miss out on 74 Christmas events and we only choose 1 really special one? What if I didn’t pack lunches every single day and we just stayed in our pjs whenever we can and play pretend and invent worlds? What if we lose the bouncy house sometimes and lose ourselves in nature? What would happen? Would I deprive my kids of their potential? Teach laziness? Inhibit their social skills? Or would I allow space for them to stay creative? (Did you know 98% of 5 year old children test as creative geniuses, but only 2% of adults do?) Encourage exploration over stimulation? Model rest as Godly instead of lazy? These are really the questions I’m asking myself. Really grappling with where the line is between embracing all the world has to offer and allowing those gifts to become shackles to exhaustion. What do you think? Are you a slave to your schedule? Does a school break terrify or invigorate you? Do you feel guilty when you say no? When you rest? Let me know your thoughts. Love + Light 💖 .

I was bullied a lot growing up and I had plastic surgery on my ears because of it.
I struggled with math in school, in fact it was my lowest mark.
I’ve switched schools, twice.
I moved away from home shortly after my 17th birthday.
I never went on a vacation with my family growing up.
I’ve had to part with some things that have almost shattered my heart.
I have had to say no to a lot of things that I really wanted to do.
.
But you know what? All of that made me resilient as hell.
I was never perfect, far from it actually.
I’ve had more failures than I can count.
It made me stronger.
It made me work so damn hard to live the life that I have today.
.
My past does not define my future and neither does yours.
My pain became my fuel and so should yours.
My emotional pains and traumas became my reason “why.”
I chose to make a lot of sacrifices.⠀
My sacrifices have definitely played a role in my successes.
.
You are the one who gets to write your story, every single day.
You have far more choice in your life than you could ever imagine.
You have the ability to say I am not going to experience that again.
You have the choice to change your situation in this exact moment.
.
I want you to choose yourself, your happiness & your health. Every single day.
.
It’s up to you whether you want to take the step forward into completely changing your money situation and your life, or remaining in the same struggle. Take the step forward and click the link in my bio to book in for your free financial Q&A call.⠀💙

Looking out for Friday 💙💚

Fear. It's the number one reason women tell me they haven't yet taken a step toward their dreams. Or that they've stepped and then stalled out.

But God. He is always with us. Whether we're scared to death or walking in faith.

And I love this grace-drenched reminder that He will fulfill His purpose for me. For you. That His love is so great, so deep, so all-encompassing that we don't have to do anything to earn it. It's just ours.

Double tap and then tag a friend if this is an encouragement to you today!

I’m thankful. Even for doesn’t have too much time lately. That means that I am working, I’m healthy and I am capable of still continue to follow my heart and create time to do my macrame pieces // time is a trigger thing, it’s really relative, you can create time, you just need to know what things are important and just do it // Try to spend more time doing things that you like and less time (but with focus) doing things that you have to do ⏰ .

Alright. Someone needs to talk to me about flocked Christmas trees. I feel like they are ALL over social media these days. How does this happen? Who has one? Do we need one? Be honest. (Liiiiiike, was it a good idea - kinda like those Furbies... but now it’s just a pain in the ass? 😆) Telllll me.

Cute new little Christmas mug from Target’s dollar section (which in reality was actually 2/$5)
.
But that’s not the point of this post. During the winter I was to drink all the warm drinks. And considering I only drink Decaf in general, I want to try more tea. Who has a tea they love? What brands are good?
