🌞”And now everybody smiles in the setting sun
And sighs with contentment when the day is done
Hand in hand
With the one you love
Feeling blessed by the magic of the moon above
And we sing
Sha la la la la
We're just living in this beautiful world
Sha la la la la
We're just living in this beautiful world” 🎶💛

Today we took advantage of the warm weather and washed our cars. I taught Shane how to wipe down the inside of the car and vacuum. Then he soaked me with the hose. I also explained that usually I’m so busy, I don’t have time to wash my own car, so I go to the car wash and pay $30 to get it cleaned.
Today is different, now we have lots of time on our hands.
When we were done, we relaxed in the camping hammock.
We also had our first family zoom call! Competed with a kids/cousins room and an adult room, the same as any Thanksgiving dinner.
In dark times, love always wins.
We can do hard things.
Today is this beautiful brides birthday and I’m sitting here reminiscing about just how amazing last weekend was watching these two say “I do”. They walked down the isle in front of just our family 2 hours before the Illinois shelter in place began. It wasn’t the wedding they planned all year but it was perfect. I love you both so much and @maggiebeck22 I hope you had the best quarantined birthday ever. Don’t ever change! #mitchellbeck#maggielovesboles#covid19wedding#lovealwayswins#tobecontinued 3.6.2021

Staying positive is critical during pandemics. Try to Stay Well and laugh a lot! Did you know that One minute of anger weakens the immune system for 4-5 hours, One minute of laughter boosts the immune system for up to 24 hours?
In one study, @harvard University scientists found that in healthy people, simply recalling an angry experience from their past caused a six-hour dip in levels of the antibody immunoglobulin A, the cells' first line of defense against infection
A new meaning. A new dawn.
This is absolutely beautiful. ❤️

Received this sweet postcard today. Not sure who it’s from, but it made me smile and maybe made me tear up (just a bit). To whoever you are...thank you! I will take what I’ve received today and pass it onto others. Also, just another tidbit...saw a post today and will share the words from it. Yes the coronavirus is contagious, but so are KINDNESS, PATIENCE, LOVE, ENTHUSIASM, COMPASSION, and a POSITIVE ATTITUDE. Don’t wait to catch these from others...Be a carrier!! #lovealwayswins#choosekindness
These two lovebirds @dalamar33 and @pinkyry1242 didn’t let no COVID19 stop them from saying I DO... Where two or more are gathered... God is ever present. I am so proud of my friends for declaring their love on their day in their way in their light... the skies cleared for them, the Sun shined down on them... the ocean waved at them... Today Nick and Ryan demonstrated what taking leaps of faith looks like in the midst of so much fear and uncertainty. So proud to bear witness to their Holy Matrimony. #LoveAlwaysWins#NicksNeedForSpeed#32820

It’s ok to choose yourself.
It’s not selfish
In fact it’s selfless.
By choosing yourself you allow yourself to be so much more to those you love, to all you do and all you are here on this earth to do. .
Putting yourself last is the exact type of energy you put out to the world and to others you love.
While running yourself ragged doing everything for everyone might make you feel good and might serve a purpose I encourage you to stop and think why and what is the purpose?
Yes it is to ‘help’ and be of service to others (and it feels good) which is amazing but why not flip the script and serve yourself first? Try helping YOU first and serving YOU first.
Then watch, then see, then feel how good that truly is. Watch the love flow, see the ease unfold before you and feel the true gratitude for what you do and all you are. .
Choosing You is Choosing Love.♥️

An unprecedented time for us, our couples and the nation as we try to navigate in this rapidly evolving pandemic. Life will change, times will be tough, and we will need to be strong.
Weddings are the affirmation of family, friendship and love and once we’re on the other side of this unprecedented time, we will all need celebrations more than ever before.
Just me and the best workout buddy ♡
Liam put on his workout gear and did the workout with me! Or at least he did the first one, he's not a big fan of stretching yet 😉. I however am starting to like it more and more. Probably because my flexibility and balance is SO much better than it was just a few months ago. And every time the trainer says 'if you want to go into a split you can' I really want to! But I can't... Well not yet!! My goal is to do a split by the end of the year. I'll keep doing my stretching and I'll give it a try every week... So @jerichomcmatthews if you're reading this (probably not 😅) > wish me luck!
You haven’t known love
Nor touched it’s breath of life
Until the womb inside you flourishes
A bundle in your arms
To have to hold
While it’s time for them to unfold
To the butterfly they are
The metamorphosis of their growth is your pain
The transformation you take on as your own
Every cut tear bruise
Mommy makes it good again
And it’s a pure love that is as God himself above
How he loves us All
To know this love is to know Gods love for us
All we go through
He feels the pain yet also feels the love
How it pains him to see us destroy ourselves through the metamorphosis of life
And just when you think you can’t bare it you can’t take it
As momma as pappa he reaches in grabs you tight
Loves you into light
To love this much
To feel this much
Is the paradise we have search for so long
The paradise within is love
From Above so below within
Love has always been the answer...
If this is how you feel by having to stay home during this pandemic, imagine what all the animals that we put in cages feel. Remember during these times, compassion is something we can learn from seeing things from other being’s eyes. Find love and empathy for all things in this world.
STAY HOME. STAY HEALTHY. STAY SAFE. ✨
Just two weeks ago we were standing surrounded by thousands of people in one of the brightest, most impressive places in New York - the Times Square. How quickly everything can change and how important it is to appreciate every moment with the knowledge of its transience.🙏
The US is now the country with the most confirmed corona cases worldwide, and New York City is the center of the crisis.🥺 More than 100 000 people in the United States have been infected and more than 1500 have died from the disease.💔
We send INFINITE LOVE and LIGHT into the world with the deep confidence that we can only overcome these challenges together in unity.
WHERE ARE YOU RIGHT NOW AND HOW DO YOU FEEL? ................ ✂️ #stayhome#staystrong#staypositive#newyork_instagram
Hey beautiful people! I was going through photos of our Iceland vacation last year and found this gem.
💎This photo is speaking volumes to me right now. I have been feeling so many waves of mixed emotions these past couple of weeks and I’m sure you can relate. From sad to angry to happy to annoyed I swear the whole spectrum has been present. When I saw this photo a sense of calm came over me, a sense of wonder and a sense of unfathomaable gratitude and above all love. .
💎This beach here in Iceland was quiet and peaceful and cold and vast and I shared it all with my hubby and I was pregnant with our first babe and she was there with us too. In this moment i was just existing. Not placing judgements on anyone or anything. It was simple and I need to come backto more moments like this daily and be intentional with it. .
💎I wanted to share with you to remind you to take moments and be with what is. No judgements around it. Feel the magic in the simple moments and feel peace and calmness take hold of your soul even if it’s just for a moment. Remember we are all human and we are all love. Love always wins ❤️ #lovealwayswins#wavesofemotion#moebphotography#iceland#diamondbeach#blacksandbeach#mommypreneur
