“You’re SO MEAN!! You’re the worst mom ever!!” 😠
After sending Austyn to a time out for doing the exact opposite of what I’d asked, she’d screamed these words across the room.
Then she apologized at bedtime.
Crying into my shirt, she said, “Mom, you’re not mean. You’re my favorite mom and I love you so much. I just don’t get know you have to put me in time outs?!” She was sincere in her apology and her question.
“I know you didn’t mean it, Austyn... bu
Front porch sittin’ at the little sea cottage we rented for a weekend away, just our little fam. There were a couple meltdowns (mostly from the kids 😂 #igothangry) & a dirty diaper or two on the drive down this morning, but all I focus on these days is the good stuff. 😍 Go-karts this afternoon, apologies made, strolls down the boardwalk, hugs & holding hands, ice cream, trips to the park, & lots of checkers. Truthfully, there’s no place I’d rather be. ⚓️🌊 #GaliosHouse
Emery MADE this picture perfect. You know why? Because right after I said, “OKAY! Big smiles everyone!” ... she tooted. 😂😂😂 Bahaha!! It’s never about the perfect shot you guys. It’s just about TAKING every shot you’ve been given. Ya feel me?? Heading off for a weekend away with my fam & couldn’t be more excited!! 💕 HAPPY (almost) WEEKEND, friends! #GaliosHouse
HAPPY 33RD BIRTHDAY to an INCREDIBLE guy with an impossibly huge heart!! Instead of writing pages & pages about how awesome you are, I’m going to do what I know you really want... Headed downstairs so we can take the kids out to celebrate YOU!! 🍻 Love you so much Jay Galios & I feel SO BLESSED to get to do this life with you!! Thanking God for one more year!!💕 #GaliosHouse
20 WEEKS!! Today marks halfway & I can’t even believe it!! 💕
Baby Girl is kicking up a storm & keeping me on my toes! I‘ve been pretty emotional these days & I don’t know if it’s because of this baby or the exciting things in the works for the book or the fact that we had our highest month ever for coaching or all of the above, but there have been all sorts of happy tears flowing. 😭
Really excited for the last half of this journey, mainly because it means we are ge
I was such a baby back then. But, somehow I already recognized my Creator’s voice. I never planned to be married at 20, but my heart knew it was where it was supposed to. The first time I said “I do,” I was done. I met a person who I loved & knew I would be with forever.
We had ups & downs but honestly most of it was great... He was great. And then, forever disappeared in front of my eyes.
It almost destroyed me, but then that still, small voice. I really, fina
Adoption is a beautiful thing.
It would be a different kind of beauty if every child grew up with both of their biological parents... but, in this world, there is brokenness. And the way I see it, adoption is a piece of beautiful collateral created from the chaos.
Adopted in the traditional sense or not, these words are whispered to each of us...
“You belong here. I chose you. It doesn’t matter what anyone says or where you came from... You. Are. Mine.
Whether or not you read the Bible, lend me your ear (or your screen) for a sec because there are some mic 🎤 drops up in here...
I’ve been diving into days in Israel for the last month or so... (mostly in Exodus, but I’ve got this gorgeous Bible that flashed Ruth at me, so I had to share this pic)... & something keeps striking me about the heroes of the Bible. Take Moses for example...
His name is mentioned a 135 times, but none of the stories are ever REAL
To be honest, it would be easier if I just opted out...
It would have been easier to skip sharing my heart, my regrets & my beautifully broken past online.
It would have been easier to keep working my comfortable contract job than start a new business in an industry I never pictured myself in.
It would have been easier to live my life never risking my heart to love again after a loss like mine.
At one point in my journey... it would have been easier to
For the love of all things Prosecco, LISTEN UP!! We are ALL UNIQUE (like these here unicorns) so it makes sense that we all have DIFFERENT dreams... Hear me on this!!
You guys KNOW I love my babies. But you KNOW I love my work as an author, speaker & coach, too. And, that’s why a HOLY HUSTLE is so much more important to me than becoming a bigger “influencer” or “brand.”
Let me dive into this... Ladies, whatever success looks like to YOU is what matters. You don’t
