Today, I woke up to the sound of hysterical laughter coming from my girls’ room. Nothing makes me feel more alive, so blessed, and simply thankful in my life than those two girls of mine. As for tonight, I’ll fall asleep next to the hottie/secretly sensitive guy that I get to call my husband. My heart is so so full. 💗 #happythanksgiving

“She had him hooked, lined, and sunk. It was in the way she pulled all of her hair to one side, baring her neck. His lips twitched in envy of anyone who laid their gentle kiss beneath her ear before him, and he shifted uncomfortably at the illogical thought of anyone after. She stepped toward him not knowing if he’d embrace her or disappear behind his walls. He froze, waiting for her next move. She took another step, looked up at him through her lashes, and without thinking he reached out, grabbing her face. Her head fell in his palm. By then his lips had puckered and were softly exploring her neck. She let out a moan, expressive of her relief. His hand went into her hair as he pulled her in closer. All at once, his lips found hers. Their tongues falling in suit.“ -Challis Anne

*Me trying to keep it real with you guys*
Life Hack: Put pool noodles in your boots to keep their shape when you’re not wearing them. Reality: Said boots are on the floor, resembling a pile of dirty laundry, and the noodles can be observed on the shelf. 🙈😂 Also, what is going on here? Do I have wayyyyyy too many hangers? Or do I really just hate hanging up the clean clothes? 🤔 (It’s the latter.) 🤫 Oh. & Would you look at that. 👀 My hair has faded, I am more than over due for a root touch up, and apparently my bra likes to play peek a boo at the most inopportune times. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #keepingitreal #skinny #tall #flawed #asfuck #loveyoself #ootd #bodysuit #jeans #feelingmyself

All I saw was red.
Red satin sheets.
Red lace lingerie.
Red bite marks.
Red lipstick stains.
Red tinted cheeks.
Red polished nails.
Red scratches down your back.
And my heart, bleeding red for you.

Shhh. It’s a secret.
No one would believe me.
They will say it’s my fault.
No one told. Including me.
No one did anything about it.
He got away with it. They all did.
Two words. Slut and Whore.
What will my husband say?
What will my parents think?
What can be done now?
The excuses never end.
But my hesitation did.

My little-big brother lost his best friend to suicide today, and while I’ve been in his shoes and felt the heaviness of this kind of loss, not only once but twice, I am still at a loss for ways to console him. It baffles me that I can’t find any words to say other than “I’m sorry” and “I love you”. I’ve been here. I should know what do and say, right?... 💔 My brother didn’t just lose his best friend, our family lost one of its members. So as we gather and surround my brother tonight, I need anyone and everyone reading this to do me a favor. If you’re fighting with someone over some petty ass bull shit, swallow your fucking pride, and tell them you love them. If you haven’t spoken to someone and you keep putting it off, do it right now. If you see signs that someone needs more help then you can give, find them the help. If you don’t see the signs, tell them you love them anyway. Go to each person in your home RIGHT NOW and tell them how much they mean to you. Wrap your arms around them as tight as you can and soak that moment in. Goodbyes and hellos do not come with a warranty in this life. Lastly, if you are thinking about suicide, please fight for your life. If nothing else, use the last ounce of yourself to reach out, because I can promise you that an army is ready to form behind you. & for what it’s worth, I care if your light goes out. 🖤 #onemorelight #suicideprevention #mentalhealthawareness #love

What? Captioning is overrated? So are selfies and hashtags? Label me basic then, since you’re the label maker with all the relevance. 💁🏼🤳 #selfie

“Keep playing them songs. Keep singing along. Keep leaning it on in closer. Keep salting the rim. Getting even with her, and with him before the night is over. That first kiss was like a Colorado hit. We better keep on keeping it lit. ‘Til we can't remember, can’t remember, what we came here to forget.” -Blake Shelton

“She sat on the bar stool with two shots of tequila already down and another being poured when she heard laughter at the end of the bar. She shifted her eyes in the direction of the noise. He had one arm around her waist, a hand in her hair, and they were giggling teeth to teeth. She smiled, then turned and threw her head back for the third time tonight. She wondered how many more she’d need just to forget his name. But, she knew this game all too well. She’ll erase him for a few hours, and when morning comes, she’ll remember all over again. His name. His face. His smell. His taste. And her head went back for the fourth time tonight.” -Challis Anne
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
“He sat in the corner, slouched over, staring at a third empty bottle of beer in his hands when he heard laughter coming from the bar. His eyes were the only things that moved as he looked up over his brow. She was tangled in him. Her arms were wrapped around his torso, pulling him in as close as she could. Rolling his eyes, he reached for his back up Sam Adams and poured it down his throat. He wondered how many more nights he’d spend trying to move on in this bar. He couldn’t see passed her. His phone was too silent. His home was too quiet. His bed was too empty. And he ordered another round for the fourth time tonight." -Challis Anne

If you have a drink, would you please put it in the air? (Any kind will do!) We have got to have a toast for these shitty hair extensions, my formerly pierced lip, and their silent (yet fortunate) departures. While we’re at it, we should throw in a word on the ability and potential to change, grow, and enlighten our human selves. Here’s to improving, no matter the pace or magnitude. Cheers! 🥂 #throwback #changeisgood #selfimprovement #noregrets

Our world faces too much devastation and heartache. There is so much we cannot control. Natural disasters cannot be prevented, and we cannot always prepare for them. We seem to come together in the aftermath of such things to remember the fallen, pick up the wounded, and wrap our arms around the weeping. We do the same when humans are to blame for spilled blood and rotten deeds. However, today, my faith in human decency was tested again... In the midst of all this world chaos, where immaculate corruption continues to happen, our every day derails seem so minuscule and unimportant. So when shit like what happened to me today comes about, the only two words that are brought to my mind are senseless and ignorant. I want to believe there is good in people. But how can I? How can any of us? It seems that no matter what is going on in this world, hate lingers around every corner, and misery will always only know how to love company. Still, right now, somewhere around our planet, another hate account was made, a bully tormented a victim, a wife was beat, a child was raped, a life was lost, a life was taken, someone was diagnosed with cancer, and do I really need to go on? Evil has not been defeated. So let me ask you this; How will you love today? How will you love tomorrow? I hope when you look in the mirror you see your worth. Every. God. Damn. Inch of it. I hope you own every offense you’ve committed, too. Place your energy where it is actually needed and beneficial. “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” 🖤 #itstartswithus

Five years ago, I stepped into my wedding dress and walked (Hell, I almost ran!) down the aisle towards my future. We were young, with two small daughters, and a big list of dreams. We stood before a waterfall and an audience full of our friends and family, making promises to each other. Some of which we would later find are not always easy to keep. I'd be lying if I told anyone that marriage is full of romance and is nothing short of a fairy tale. It simply is not. Although, I do LOVE that when I'm doing laundry, how your arms slip around my waist from behind me and gentle kisses are pressed upon my neck. And, I do LOVE that when I'm stressed out, you appear with a bowl of ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup in the shape of a heart. And once more, I do love when your hand reaches over the center console to find its resting place on my thigh in what seems to be our never ending car rides. While I am loving the little things that you do that only have significance to us, like an inside joke to the best of friends, it is not romantic to be dizzy from our world spinning around our girls, and rarely around each other. It's not romantic to be overly exhausted due to work and the every day stress of being an adult. I have never read a fairy tale that warned me that I'd have only thirty seconds of alone time with my Prince Charming during the week, which would be spent deciding on what we were going to have for dinner. Still, amidst all the chaos, the ups, the downs, the 180's and 360's that these past five years have given us, and that we have endured, our love has always revealed that we are right where we belong. While marriage has proven to be hard work, and not for the closed, weak minded and faint of heart, I'm grateful to have embarked on this mapless journey with you. Marriage is about giving and choices. I will always choose you, and give you all of me. Here's to us, our girls, our supporters, our skeptics, our critics, our haters, the five years behind us, and the many more ahead. 🥂

"You'll fall in love with her in the course of her absence. In the quiet moments, when you find yourself alone and all you can seem to think of is the way she looks with a grin on her face. Your mind will fall in love with her long before your heart has a chance to object." -Challis Anne

"At long last, she saw the curtain in front of his eyes fall. And that wall he built? Well, he sent a wrecking ball right through it. He finally fell in love. In love with her. And there wasn't a cause to this reaction that anyone could pinpoint to the exact moment that he let go of his doubts and fears. Time was finally on their side, and he wasn't going to waste it." -Challis Anne

"And, her? Well... She was mad. Obsessed with becoming his undoing. Always looking for a blueprint, a map, an equation, or a recipe that would lead her to his remedy. The kind of woman that is far too common, and never in the right place at the right time. The kind of woman who sets her aim, and whether he was ready or not... Bullseye." -Challis Anne

I don't mean to sound like a cocky bitch, but... 💁🏼 If you have seen an impersonation account of me, please do not be one of the fools who falls for it, or any that have yet to come. I have said it umpteen times, but I will reiterate it again: This Instagram account is the only social media I have and participate in. Peace, love and positive vibes to all, even the petty person who does not realize they cannot take away my authenticity, nor get a rise out me, other than my middle finger. 🖕🏻✌🏻🖤

Raise your hand if you're finished with attempting to figure out who is with you, against you, or coasting down the middle because they lack the cojones to pick a side. 🙋🏼 Raise your other hand if you've realized that opinions are a dime a dozen, validation is for parking, and the key to YOUR happiness doesn't jingle in someone else's pocket. 🙌🏻 Now, chuck your deuces up towards anything and anyone that doesn't bring you peace. ✌🏻🖤
