Sometimes I think fall exists just so we can see how beautiful it is to let some things go. You cannot reach out toward a new dream until you are brave enough to let go of the old one. Drop the baggage, my friend. I promise you’ll FALL IN LOVE with the FREEDOM. ✨ #MadeforBrave
Not too thrilled by the cloudy weather? Here’s a pic of fresh flowers from Pike Place Market on the Pier in Seattle. There’s something about a little bit of bright color that goes a long way to brighten up the world around it, isn’t there? Hope you are counting your blessings this Tuesday, my friends!! #MadeforBrave #GaliosHouse
Saturday was ALL costume party dance off’s on our coaches team call then hot coffee to warm hands on the soccer field because it definitely feels like fall. 🍁
Then there was pizza and trophies for the kids after the last game, cleaning out the gutters before the next rain and Austyn’s school’s fall festival which sent us home with so much candy it’s insane!! (Hey! Im rhyming. Whoops! )
BUT, YALL, Im still on my game!! Remember that PILOT TEST GROUP I’m a part of?!
Some days I feel the mess more than this message, that’s for sure. But, when I come back to the truth of it all... that how I REACT to a given situation matters more than the situation itself... Everything starts to come into alignment. #MadeforBrave #Bravetalk
Wednesday marked two years officially. TWO YEARS since Jay adopted my oldest. And, my heart is BURSTING! I know one day, Austyn will cherish the story I’m recounting in my book. Because, our story is one of redemption, of failure, of second chances, of love and loss. And, it’s really almost just as much her story as it is mine. It’s the story of HOW she came about & ended up with TWO incredible dads. Why I had to lose her 27 year old dad to cancer when she was just 9 months o
I’ve been thinking a lot about the way that God leads us. And, it’s funny, I used to think He would lead with a big ole treasure map. Like we’d be able to see the twists and turns that are coming, and know ahead of time X-actly where we are going to end up. But, the more I’ve come to know Him, the more I see that the way He moves is a lot more like a navigation system. You can follow His voice but only one move at a time. ONLY AFTER you’ve turned right will you find out that
It was PITCH BLACK by 6:45pm here. 🍁 And, it’s getting cold out. But, y’all, I’m not complaining in the least! All of this just means Christmas is right around the corner!! 😍 Saw this sweatshirt at a shop in Leavenworth last weekend & regretting not grabbing it. Hayley Isaman knows... I’m ALWAYS cold
Patched it up with our two favorite pumpkins yesterday afternoon! 🎃
SO DANG GRATEFUL that my heart could BURST!!! 💯 For my fam, for this #pnwonderland, for warm coffee ☕️ , crunchy leaves 🍁, my superfood pumpkin spice shake & the GORGEOUS fall weather!
Not to mention the fact that I got my round of edits done on the book 📖manuscript just under deadline (11:30pm last night) & then woke up to the most INCREDIBLE messages in my inbox 📨 again from ladies in ou
Walk up early. Drink your coffee (or your unicorn crack ✨ - or both... whatever blows your skirt up. hehe). Spend a few minutes in GRATITUDE & then spend even LONGER setting your intention for the day. Get your workout in. Snuggle those kids... 💕 Balancing this mom of two life can be a little nuts but every day that’s started this way yields some INCREDIBLE results & crazy progress toward my goals, one day at a time. 😍 Now, over to YOU! I want to hear how YOU spend your mo
“I don’t know if I can do this...” Literally the thought that ran through my head the first time I decided that I was going to workout for a half hour every day for 3 weeks. I hadn’t worked out consistently in YEARS, I was so weak, I was a single mom, I was SO TIRED & SO FREAKING BUSY. 😬 The first time I tried, I got sick & quit a week in. But, I didn’t give up.... I got back up as soon as I was able & gave it another go. And, one day at a time, I stuck with that commitment.
