Truth time: I’m “working” right now. 9:15 a.m and I’m in my comfy pj’s, sipping coffee while Fen naps, and I’m putting together a welcome package for a brand new oil team member. This is “work” to me 😂😍
.
For the longest time I didn’t know exactly what I was meant to do. Especially after having Fenley and struggling with post partum depression & anxiety + not wanting to leave her to work full days. I was missing that spark of inspiration and purpose⚡️. Then I found this community. I know now...I know in my gut I’m on the right path. The energy I’m surrounded by is incredible. I’ve bonded with women I’ve never met. Seriously, i consider myself blessed to know + cheer on these beautiful souls that are a part of the Young Living community. My life has been propelled forward in so many aspects, after accidentally discovering this business that’s focused on family + wellness. 🙌🏼😭 If you don’t know what your purpose is, if you don’t know where you belong... umm hi, friend.💕 You belong here, with us. You are welcome to link arms with other badass mamas who work from their phone, while sitting in the backyard watching their children play. Mamas who do business calls in their PJ’s in bed, sippin’ coffee. You are amongst friends that you never even knew you needed. This team of magical, empowered, supportive women. We exist. And you are welcome, too. 🌿💕
.
I’m looking for two mamas who need some guidance and purpose in their life. Women who want to experience fierce friendships + financial freedom. You will receive personal mentorship from myself, access to my team’s online business group where we have so much fun learning & cheering each other on, freedom to choose when + how often you work and so much more. No more schedules, or daycare. No more stressing about missing work when your baby is sick. Work from your phone while you snuggle your babe 😍 .
Join the oily side, take a chance. I’m so, SO happy I did.⚡️✌🏼 Message me & let’s talk, trust me...you’re going to love it💕🌿🦄✨ .
Here is a sneak peek of the financial potential from this incredible business ✨

Fenley has been doing wonderful with her eating(as always), but is definitely becoming a little pickier than she used to be 😅
.
She now dislikes banana, raspberries, blueberries, strawberry vegan yogurt, peppers depending on the day, canned fruit cocktail, cantaloupe, broccoli depending on the day, almond milk depending on the day... etc. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
Still LOVES toast, watermelon, strawberries, pizza(duh!), guacamole, cheese, salad, hummus, pasta, carrots, sorbet, sweet potatoes, pickles, snickers protein bars (I give her tiny little tastes of mine and she’s obsessed lol), and pretty much any sweets such as muffins, cookies etc. 🍊🍋🍉🍇🍓🍒🍍🥝🥑🥒🥕🧀🥗🍕🍦🎂🍪🍩
.
She’s currently 15.5 months old, and weighing about 23 lbs. fitting 12-18 month clothing, and some 2T clothing. She sleeps 11 hours straight at night, loves to give hugs + kisses, is running all around the house, and has plenty of bruises from wiping out 🙈 she loves smelling oils, playing in the grass, petting the dog, and reading. Gosh, does she ever love reading. She has about 10 words in her vocabulary and a handful of baby signs as well. 🙌🏼

This post is a continuation of the one I started on my fitness IG @devonmariefit 💕
.
Guess who gets to define who you are? You do! Nobody else gets to tell you if you’re right or wrong or smart or dumb or who you should be or what your ceiling is. Nobody else. You get to choose who you want to be + how you’re going to get there 😱🤯🙌🏼😍
.
Pretty freakin’ exciting right? So what’s the problem then? Why isn’t everybody doing what they love everyday, marrying someone who’s actually good for them, working a job they are obsessed with, etc? We get told by the world “no.” We hear no’s all the dang time. No, you can’t go to school for that, your grades are too low. No, you’re not equipped for the job, someone else got the position. No, don’t ask her/him out, they’re wayyyyy out of your league. No, don’t have babies, they will rock your world and ruin your life. No no no no no no no. It gets into our heads. ✖️
.
But let me tell you this - if you listen to “them” .. the people who are always saying “no”, you’ll end up in a similar situation. Same marriage problems, same house + car you can barely afford ... going to a job you despise to pay for it, you get the drift. Have you ever met a hater with a life you envy? I’m going to take a wild guess and say that you haven’t. 💁🏻‍♀️
.
What kind of person do you want to be? What kind of life do you want to live? Do you want to work from home? Do you want to live on a beach? Do you want a family that thrives & is fuelled by love? What do YOU WANT? Forget what the world wants for you, because we’ve already established it’s pretty lame and basically a bunch of bs. ☠️
.
I want to be a leader. I want to be an exceptional wife + mother. I want to run a successful business from anywhere (home,beach,cafe in Paris). I want to empower other women and be charitable. I want so badly to give back and help shape the world into a better place. So I’m going to go do that. What are you going to do? Who are you going to be? 🤔✌🏼❤️

This little cutie has been testing us lately. Terrible twos?! Pretty sure terrible fifteen months is more accurate 😂
.
Trying to get into places she’s not supposed to, biting, pinching, being extra clingy & needy(might not be THAT mad about that one😘), getting ticked about bum changes and face washing ... etc. 😳
.
But look at that little wale spout pony!!!! Her cuteness more than makes up for this rough stage. Plus she can dance like a mini Beyoncé so there’s that 💁🏻‍♀️💃🏻
.
Almost 16 months and ready to cause mayhem. Good thing I’m stocking up on wine & oils 😂🌿🍷🙌🏼

“And if you don’t know, now you know”
wise words from Biggie. ✊🏼 once you learn something, you can’t unlearn it.

Truthfully - I didn’t know. I didn’t realize that many things I used on a daily basis were sooooo harmful for me. The scented candles, the yummy smelling lotions, the cleaners, the toothpaste, the dryer sheets, laundry soap...you name it, I literally didn’t know.

And then I started to learn. I’m a researcher by nature, so when I hear something I always need to do my own investigating to make sure it’s true. And let me tell you friends, it’s true. These things that so many of us use all the time are irreversibly damaging to our health and our children’s health💔. Marketing and big companies are not on our side.😔
.
As I am learning more, I am changing my habits. Is it easy to shake up your routine and try new things, learn new ways of doing things? Nope, staying in your comfort zone is always easier. Is it worth it to learn how to avoid these scary things and seek a better way?! HECK YES!! A million times yes! I started small with switching out my cleaners, and little by little I’ve replaced almost everything toxic in my home. It’s not so overwhelming if you focus on one thing at a time. 🙌🏼
.
Dryer sheets can cause cancer and alter your reproductive system? Okay - use wool dryer balls. Plastic straws ruining the oceans and killing turtles? Easy - get yourself some stainless steel straws off of Amazon. One step at a time guys.🌎 .
Have you seen this yet? http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/07/the-epa-is-hiding-proof-that-formaldehyde-causes-leukemia.html 🤢
.
If you feel sick to your stomach like I did after reading this, it’s time to change.
Know better, do better. It can be confusing, I get it. Trust me, I get it. Reach out to me and I’ll help you start doing better. I’ll teach you how I’ve been switching things around my home , little by little, and why I’ve been so much healthier + happier lately. Ignorance is not bliss. 🌿
.
Do it for the planet. Do it for your family. Do it for YOURSELF. You deserve better. 💕

Trying to squeeze three people + one doggo into a selfie = this. We tried 😂
.
On the days my man works until midnight, we try to cram in a bit of family time in the morning. Today, it was a quick walk 💕
.
Love my tribe 🧔🏻👩🏻👶🏻🐕

Feeling grateful today. Woke up this morning, which is a blessing in itself. 🙌🏼
.
Fen let me sleep in until 6:50, and she’s back to her usual happy, hilarious self! YASSSS! It makes such a difference in my day. 👶🏻👩🏻
.
Being an empath is so incredibly cool, but it’s also very challenging. I absorb energy from strangers, and that’s tough enough. Vibin’ off of my family’s energy ... 🤯😳✨
.
I care about my lil babe so much, and it literally ruins my whole psyche and day when she’s off. We are so intertwined, almost as though I once carried her inside of me 😉🤰🏻
.
She’s currently racing around the living room laughing for no apparent reason and waving her shirt around. Grabbing face cloths and “cleaning” the tv stand. I love this mom gig most days 💕

This morning was not fun. Fenley woke me up screaming at 6:15, which is unusual for her. She usually whines a bit and babbles for 15-20 minutes before standing up and being ready to get up for the day.

She was grumpy throughout breakfast and I feel tired. Not the kind of tired that can be cured by one or two nights of going to bed early and “catching up”. I feel TIRED. Like drained, achy, exhausted tired down to my very core. The kind of tired that only appears after a year and a half of lack of sleep. The kind of tired that you don’t fully understand until you experience it.

As I watched the baby monitor, my usually sweet little girl standing up screaming, biting the crib, I felt the panic rising. Starting in my stomach and threatening to come up my throat, my heart in a knot. The ball of angst and frustration that comes out of nowhere. “Just lay down! You need to sleep, you’re clearly tired. Mama needs to cook and clean and work and drink her coffee and have 30 minutes to herself before she is dedicated fully to you again!!!” I screamed inside my head. She didn’t receive my telepathic message. She kept standing and screaming.

Something is wrong, but I didn’t know what. Something is off and we both felt it, but neither of us fully understands it. Motherhood changes you. It really does. I no longer care about myself as much as I care about her. When she’s not okay, I’m not okay. When she cries, I cry. When she stands in her crib and screams - I want to scream. But I also want to be as quiet as possible so she settles and goes to sleep so it’s a battle in that regard.

It’s okay if the cooking gets left until tomorrow. It’s okay if your house isn’t always tidy, and dishes are piled up. It’s okay if you look like a hot mess because you spent your baby’s naptime worrying about her instead of getting ready for the day. It’s okay to cry into your cold coffee, mama.

You can be strong and soft at the same time. You can be a worrier and a nurturer. You can be falling apart on the inside and hold it together on the outside. Motherhood is a strange, strange thing some days.

This photo pretty much sums up her cheeky little personality! Fen is an outdoor baby, through and through.☀️🌿
.
Today we spent time at the spray park with friends, and then had some more outdoor play in the back yard. Collecting rocks, throwing handfuls of dirt on the dog, testing out the sprinkler, and dancing were amongst today’s activities. 😂
.
Does anyone else have a total outdoor baby?! 🙋🏻‍♀️☀️
