These are the days.
🌿
These are the days of tiring grocery shopping trips and short or nonexistent toddler naps.
Of weary discipline and “broken record” instruction.
Of my need to ask my babies for forgiveness because I have been angry or impatient.
These are the days of a hundred kisses for self-inflicted boo-boos from the incessant wrestling.
Of reminders every-other-minute to share, to show kindness, to choose wisdom, to look out for the interests of others.
Of constant fleeing to God for the grace for the same heart attitudes I am encouraging in my children.
These are long, hard, tiring days.
But these are also the days of bursting vocabulary and little minds eager to learn.
Of bright eyes full of admiration and love for their daddy.
Of their hearts beginning to understand some of God’s Word and our mutual need for Jesus.
These are the days of little hands clambering to feel Baby Brother’s kicks, and little feet running to me with another picture book.
Of vividly seeing how blessed I am to have a Savior who gives me purpose and identity even in the most mundane and draining of responsibilities—and who forgives me every time I fail.
These are the days of recognizing just how quickly these days will be replaced with new and different days, and I’ll be yearning to have their little years back.
🌿
These are the days that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the whole wide world.

I never understood how someone can love someone with every part of their being until I found out I was pregnant with this precious angel
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She wasn’t even here yet and I already loved her with everything. And then she was born and my heart bursted with so much love. She taught me what true love and fear was. Love that I never experienced because it’s a different love that only a mother and child can have. And fear because I had NO clue what the hell I was going to do once she got here
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She is my baby no matter how old she gets and I’ll make sure to remind her of that even if she’s with her friends when she’s older 🤣 I can’t think of a better role I could have ever played in my life because being a mother is the greatest blessing I’ll ever have
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love you Esmeralda, my baby. Happy National Daughter’s Day 💗

We are having so much fun doing this Brand Rep thing! I picked up photography as a hobby a few months ago because I wanted to capture H's childhood with something other than my iPhone. Turns out I kinda love it 🖤 .
.
Now H is rocking some amazing products from fabulous small shops and I get to take his photos in them - how fun is that? It's really helping me work on taking pictures in different lighting/settings and pushing me to play with my editing style. Oh, and we get to support hard working Mamas and Dads who are brave enough to venture out and start their own businesses! Who knows- maybe one day I will be skilled enough to attempt a small family photography business?
.
.
Did you notice H's shirt is personalized and representing our Instagram handle? Does it get any cooler than that?! Thanks @thesassytouch for such a rockstar T-shirt 🖤
.
.
@crowned_laurel_ I may never put H in anyone else's distressed denim because I love your's so much 🖤

HARPER is back on 10/5 🙌🏼 She’s perfect for piggies or worn individually for a more understated bow. And really, these deluxe glitters make my heart swoon 😍🍂

This beautiful princess is turning F O U R this weekend and party planning is in full affect! She asked for a Princess Party and that’s exactly what she’s getting!👸
.
For some reason this is the first birthday I don’t really feel sad it’s her birthday. I think because it’s been SO fun having a little mini me and best friend to hang out with and laugh with 24/7! Love her so much and it’s been so fun to watch her grow up into the little girl that she is! 💗

my sweet, busy boy is 15 months.♡ i’ve been feeling extra emotional about him lately. i love him so much. im so lucky to know him; to admire him. i’m so proud i get to call him my son. to be his mama really truly is the best gift & just puts to shame anything i thought i could ever want. you name it, he’s worth it.

THIS IS ENGLAND! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🍁👢🧣
It’s ok. It really is. We’re settling in. 
Today we drank real ale in an olde pub in the September sun. 🍺 ☀️ But kids are amazing aren’t they? Mike and I have just had one of the most exhausting and unsettling weeks of our lives. I don’t think either one of us realized just how emotionally and physically draining it would be saying goodbye to our everyday lives and setting up life all over again. Living with family when we’re only used to having our own space 100% of the time. Getting used to a culture that used to be second nature and now feels strange and slightly ridiculous at every turn. We’re already getting used to life ‘back home’ (having mostly stopped making secret plans to fly back to California while we still have our green cards😁) and we’re enjoying the beauty of England in September. But it’s been hard. We’re home sick. 
The kids however...🙄😆 the kids are kicking around in damp leaves like they’ve been doing this since birth! Can’t live without Grandma and Grandad for more than an hour, like we’ve lived with them our whole lives and not six days?? Doning rain coats and boots at the door step like pros. Archer has already told me that the (slightly soggy and old fashioned) playground in Harpenden’s main park is “MY FAVORITE PLAYGROUND IN THE WORLD!” Umm ok. 
It makes it easier ~ and harder. Already their California life has ceased to exist, which is a bit sad for us. But also awesome because they’re happy and that’s the Big Thing isn’t it? 
We’ll see how things progress if / when they realize that there are some friends and some places they just won’t see again. Maybe they really will forget? They were, however, promised a Peppa Pig camper van when we got to the new house and let me tell you there’s no way they’re forgetting that! 
Ps. Margot turned 25 when she arrived in England. Totally loving her new big girl boots... ➡️

Verse of the week: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.” Proverbs 3:5a
•
This verse is big! We’re going to work on this one a little bit each week until we have the entire thing (Proverbs 3:5-6) memorized.
•
We’re praying: 1️⃣That our kids grow up trusting in the Lord with all their hearts. 2️⃣That they don’t lean first on their own understanding. 3️⃣That they acknowledge God in all their ways. 4️⃣That they allow Him to direct their paths. 💙

1st photo: typical everyday look. Unwashed hair up, no makeup, baby hairs growing in, and tank top for🤱🏻 • any other mamas feel me on this when you’re home with your baby? Fun fact, I absolutely hated wearing my hair up in high school. It was rare to see me in a ponytail. But now it’s my everyday look 😂 funny how motherhood (and just plain maturity) changes your perspective on things. Second photo: the reason this is all worth it... my baby boy.

Look at those curls! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At nighttime when I’m completely exhausted, I find myself thinking about unnecessary things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One thing I did notice is that when I’m sleeping my tongue is pressed against the top of my mouth and I seem to clinch the back of my teeth. Weird right. 🤨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you noticed any strange sleep habits that you do as well? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today is a bit of an anniversary for me,I wasn’t even going to share this here but then I saw the calendars date. 6 months. 6 months exactly since I turned 35 and I decided I was going to change. 6 months since I downloaded @kayla_itsines @sweat App and got to work. Since I laced up my running shoes again and pulled out the running stroller.  It didn’t happen quickly and it didn’t happen overnight. It didn’t happen with gimmicks or pills or drinks or any magic other than my own work. Next week will finish off my second round of BBG and I’m going to finally write a post about it, though I think I’ve documented quite a bit of it here, on my blog and my private account @bluebird_living . But I’ll consolidate and answer any of the questions you have so leave them below. For years I followed other moms who worked out, who inspired me and who I wanted to be like. It’s ok to be inspired and to realize we don’t know all the answers. When I felt ready I committed to myself the way I committed to my husband the day we got married, and started my journey. It’s a work in progress but I’m happy with where I’m headed. Only regret is not taking a front photo of what I looked like then, 70ish lbs from where I am now...I took a side one though (the last image). The others are from where I was at 2 months PP...the difference wasn’t great though 😂 #transformationtuesday #momof3boys #bbgmoms #bbgtransformation #bbgprogress #bbgcommunity #boymom #momof3

What is the difference between these images?  I’d love to talk about how they are 8 weeks apart, I had just finished a 6 day a week program in the blue and a 4 day a week program in the pink and how much stronger I became both mentally and physically with them both and that is true, but when I look at myself in these images I see someone that is in a constant struggle with emotional eating....STILL!  I have all the tools I need to conquer this but by the end of the day my willpower is gone and I just want to eat everything in the house.
🤪
My family and I just went through another transition that definitely created a lot of stress and worry and constant changing of schedules...and I coped by eating things I wouldn’t normally eat because it made me feel better...like the kids gummy worms and candy from birthday parties, goldfish, chips, ice cream, jars of peanut butter, blah blah, all those things in moderation are fine but when you eat a bunch of food all at once and especially late at night..you don’t sleep well because your body is digesting instead of resting, you feel uncomfortable, your face breaks out, you start to gain weight, you’re moody from all the sugar and you mess with all the hard work you’ve been putting in with your workouts.
😭
So here it is- me telling my truth in the hopes that someone else struggling will know that they are not alone in this and to announce that I’m going to dive into getting certified as a mentor for a nutrition program that focuses on mindset and nutrition at the same time. 😍
I’m opening up my bootcamp next week to anyone that wants to focus on their emotional eating and nutrition and for anyone that is ready to start a fitness program.  I will cheer you on and provide you with tools that work (if you use them) if you commit to cheering others on as well.  Support is really the missing key in most of our wellness journeys and I am here to offer it w/all my imperfections.  Drop an emoji if you’re ready to jump start your health and wellness journey and you’ll join a group of people that can’t wait to encourage you!  We are all on a journey to be better than we were the day before. Are you ready to say YES to your health?

So, if I’m not at a wedding or session I have been at home staring at both computer screens till the early morning hours. Do not get me wrong, I absolutely love my job and I Simply adore my clients and I have the BEST team and partners ever, however lately I have been super exhausted and burned out and the mom guilt has been at its highest level, let alone husband who? Well husband did bring me Starbucks this morning. Thank You @delhomesales your the man!! lol so I guess I did see him for a minute there during the coffee exchange. However, lately I have been struggling trying to find the balance and trying to figure out even where to begin to start to find a better way of running a busy and amazing photography business and being a mommy and wife. I remember when I worked the night shift at the hospital and having the worst mom guilt because I had to leave and go to work and now I’m home and have to work and I feel the same way. Today what saved me was my little Sweetheart of a daughter, who came into my office and gave me the biggest hug after school today and told me “your the best mommy in the world!” I just sat there and held her so tightly nearly starting to cry, because she turned my pity party of a day into the sweetest smile. I wonder if she’ll ever know that her little hugs and sweetness throughout the day truly helps to get me through the day. Some times I feel like such a failure in the mom department, but then I just sit back and watch her interact with me and others and I know I must have done something right because she’s so full of love and happiness. Ahhhh being a mom is no joke!!! It’s the hardest job and the most wonderful job in the whole wide world. Thank you Joseph and Winnie for being my support team and loving me through all the take out dinners and missed weekend events throughout the fall season. You two are my rocks and my everything and you make all of this craziness worth it! If anyone needs us tonight, we are turning off our phones and watching Curious George in Winnie’s tent with all three animals👨‍👩‍👧🐶🐶🐱

When you ask your daughter to take a picture of you and she gets this gem. I think I found my own personal little photographer 📸 Seriously though, I love coming to this place, the gardens are all just so beautiful with so many gorgeous statues and sights to see. It gets me so excited thinking about marrying my bestfriend here💕

These are the days.✨ I just wish these days could slow their roll a bit. Like, seriously. It’s crazy how I can look at my daughters’ faces and see both my baby and a little lady. How I can remember holding them as a newborn and also dream of what they’ll look like, sound like, think like, love like, and live like when they’re all grown. School plays, sleepovers, book reports, sports games, first loves, braces, driving permits, Homecoming Dances, ... all of it. I’m excited to get there, eventually. But I’m even more grateful for all the today’s until then.⠀

I forgot to brush my hair today and I didn’t notice that my 2 year old left the house with two right shoes 🤷🏽‍♀️ Three kids ago I would’ve felt like a failure, but today I felt great. I’m doing my best. I’m loving my kids and cherishing this season and we got out of the house with no tears or yelling. It’s funny how sometimes, that things that look imperfect are actually the moments we should celebrate most. Being confident that you’re enough, just as you are, is so much better than this unattainable idea of perfection.
