No one knows what you have been through or what your pretty little eyes have seen, but I can reassure you ~ whatever you have conquered, it shines through your mind.

Let me tell you, life of a toddler is not always rainbows and butterflies. But while it may come with its fair share of tears and frustrations, life of a toddler also means many laughs and smiles over rambling conversations, broken songs, booty shaking and awkward running. 💕 What a wonderful adventure these past 18 months have been. 💕
"You belong among the wildflowers..." 🌻Between work travel and celebrating family and friends, it's been a long, yet amazing, week. Seeing this little girl's face light up when I walk through the door at the end of the day makes running on empty all worth it. 🌻 How do you re-energize?
The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.

Sometimes as the days seem to get longer I have to remind myself that we only have so many days that we get to live. It's always been a really hard concept for me, but it's the truth. I sometimes have days where time feels like it literally slips out of my hands and I'm not sure how I can grab on any tighter. Sometimes the best memories seem to fly by so fast and then you end up looking back wishing I you could go back and hold on tighter. I try now as I wake up to remember that these moments will never be there again. So, I hold on a little tighter. To every child I meet and make smile, to every baby I capture coming into this world, to every mom and dad running with their kids in the woods, to every mothers smile as they feel their baby kicking inside, to my personal life and moments that make my heart so happy, and to the moments that came from my hands, and the art that I captured. I hold on. Life is such a beautiful, and messy thing. Some days it's so beautiful and my heart literally almost burst out of my chest as I watch a perfect little angel come into this world, and some days well are just not good days. Where the news overpowers and our fears start to become enormous weights. With the good and the bad i have learned to embrace the moments. Some days we meet good people and other days we feel horribly disappointed in people. This life is messy, beautiful and always a ride, but if there's one way to live we must embrace the moments that make us feel more alive than ever. ✌🏼CARPE DIEM ✌🏼
🇺🇸9/11🇺🇸Forever I will remember waking up to this day years ago. As I went down the stairs I saw both my parents crying. I saw on the television one of the most horrific things. To this day my heart is still full of horror of what people had to watch, the fear people felt, and all the people we lost. This day many years ago was a day none of us will ever forget. The day that shook our souls beyond belief. As I stand today in this world I know that I will never let hate win. I will stand for anything that isn't right and will fight for not only freedom, but love. I will fight for strangers and I will fight for close friends/family always. We are all together in this world and that is all we have. We have hearts that can heal and souls that can show love. So today and everyday, as Mother Theresa once said "Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile." Today I pray for every one of you. If you were scared from this day I pray for you. If you lost someone on this day I pray for you. If today makes you fear tomorrow I pray for you. Whatever it is I pray for you. Hold on to the love today and everyday people. 💗 sending love to you all.
