Good morning Insta Fam
Woke up to this , thank you for the new additions , we welcome you all
Selfie with a giant statue of Our Lady, holding baby Jesus @ the beginning level of the Stations of the Cross in St. Padre Pio’s San Giovanni Rotondo, taken last November 2019.
The way the 14 Stations of the Cross are wrapped around each level of this hill & @ the middle, are the stairs & you can have a glimpse of Jesus image from below & when you reach the top, guess who’s amazing sculpture you see @ the center & overlooking San Giovanni? The resurrected Jesus!! Top & centered!! Superb!!
I went back to this amazing & superb monument the early morning on my last day here, to do the Stations of the Cross.
I’ve never been so enthusiastic & energetic walking up this hill while doing the Stations of the Cross, on a wet early morning & no one was there. I had the entire place to myself!! Reaching the top & seeing the resurrected Jesus felt so heavenly!!
Dating my husband in our pockets of time has been fun this week! We have been hitting the gym together in the mornings and actually working out together instead of him doing his thing and me doing my thing.
Anyone who knows me knows my hubby is my best friend in the whole world and we don’t get a lot of time together...while I’m working throughout the day most days, he’s been Mr. Mom doing all the fun things with the kids and keeping the house running.
It’s nice being on the same page with our workouts and our meals and our intermittent fasting! We are so aligned with one another lately with our marriage and life goals, I just feel grateful AF that everything is unfolding so perfectly as planned.
Sure, there are hard and messy days...that’s just life. But when you get to wake up and do life with an amazing, loving, patient and understanding partner, those hard and messy days become fewer and far more between.
At the end of the day, make sure you have the right people on your bus with you and that you’re all on the same journey to better. It makes the ride so much sweeter! ♥️
So excited to be sharing our new home with you all. We feel so blessed and grateful that we had to share the vibes! Excited to make this more like home each day. #BeyondGrateful 🌸🧿

i’m still figuring my mind out. i’ve been on this earth for 19 years and still have no idea what i’m doing, but i have learned that if I’m too busy or to tired to watch the sunset then something is out of balance. If I am too exhausted to do the things I love then my life needs a glow up. right now I’m diving deep into chaos of my inner being and actively untangling all the years of programming. unraveling who i am, what I’m called to do, and immediately placing action behind the lessons I’m learning. Healing requires action. Growth requires action. Love is action and fear is eradicated with action. I don’t have a 5 year plan or my life mapped out ( yet) but Im creating space in my life to do the things I love. If you feel overwhelmed by life pls go watch the sunset. there are more lessons held in the sky than you could ever imagine.🥰🥰🤍
My 7th selfie is with Our Lady/Mother of Perpetual Help’s original icon from the 14th century, taken inside the
Church of Saint Alphonsus Liguori in Rome on my pilgrimage last October with #PatrickMadridHolyLand2019
I extended my stay in Italy after the group pilgrimage was over, so I can visit St. Padre Pio in San Giovanni.
God is amazingly good, & Mama Mary wouldn’t want me to be alone...such a kind couple from our pilgrimage group invited me to join them as they also were going to San Giovanni.
We stayed a couple of days in Rome before leaving for San Giovanni. The wife just started having devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help so this place was a must see for her.
The moment I landed my feet on the Church grounds & walking on the steps, I realized how super blessed I was to visit & see the original icon of Our Lady/Mother of Perpetual Help (such unexpected huge blessing for I didn’t know about this Church). I immediately recall too, my dear friend @ginalauritis has special devotion to Our Lady/Mother of Perpetual Help, so I dedicated this visit to her.
This Church is flowing with abundant graces & holiness. We walked in during a celebration of the Holy Mass (not in English), followed by recitation of the Holy Rosary in Polish with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Then a novena led by Filipinos with matching acoustic guitar for Marian hymns, that reminded me of my childhood memories back in the Philippines. The novena was then followed by another Holy Mass, this time in English & the priest included us in his blessing for safe travel & mentioned us in his homily. He had spoken to us prior & had asked us to stay for Mass. We told him about our pilgrimage & that on the next day, we’ll be driving to St. Padre Pio’s San Giovanni. He also bless our religious items we had gotten from the church gift shop.
Happy birthday to Rudram our little Musketeer, the krishna , may God showers his choicest blessings on you and bless you millions .

March 2020, never got a chance to post any pics of Nova's 3rd bday party, the next day everything closed and we went into quarantine. Despite of all the craziness that unfolded in the past few months, I'm so grateful I have a healthy family, a job and a home where Nova can continue to learn and grow. 2021 can't come fast enough tho. #BeyondGrateful#NovaBlue

AHHHH!! I am beyond grateful for this. This little home Instagram account is something I’ve been wanting to do for ages. I started posting regularly a couple months back and just wanted to share my lockdown DIY projects and love of home decor. As we’ve worked on making our old 1927 charmer a home with our added touches, your support has been awesome! In such a short span of time, I’ve already hung peel n’ stick wallpaper, sanded and refurbished a patio table, joined the @oneroomchallenge hosted by @betterhomesandgardens, along with countless other projects! And that’s all because of this great family/cheerleading squad. All of you have inspired me to keep on sharing and to try new things. I’m so grateful to be a part of this supportive and talented community. I hope to keep on growing along with you! Thanks friends! ❤️
I knew this would be our last family picture.
The sun was dazzling that day in 2015 as we wound our way around an Indiana state park seeking the perfect family shots with our talented and kind friend, @maguirefam.
The kids were laughing and playing, my husband, Paul, and I held hands and stayed close to one another.
We were all smiles on the outside.
But inside, I felt nothing but hollow and raw, real fear.
Paul had spent the previous two years in a deep, dark depression, activated by a job loss. Then, just a few months prior to that sunny day at the park, he had been diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. His lymph nodes were riddled with the cancer that spread from a malignant spot on his left forearm, they said. The planned surgery would be risky and the year-long toxic drug therapy to follow would keep him in bed most days, and might not even work.
So we set out that beautiful fall day to capture our family of five for what we thought might be the last time.
Only it wouldn’t be the last time. God had other plans and our story took quite the twist.
I’ve been deeply honored to share more of our story on a few podcasts, including The Radiant Podcast with @kelschapman (she’s ahhhhhmazing, btw). You can tune in by visiting the link in my bio or the comments below.
This weekend was our busiest so far! 5 balloon garlands and 2 beautiful picnics for the LOVELIEST of clients #beyondgrateful 🌸🙏✨🙌

It’s hard. Life is hard. Starting up a business is hard. Quitting a bad habit is hard. Switching routines is hard. Implementing healthier habits is hard. Sometimes, getting out of bed is hard, and putting a foot in front of the other can be even harder. Whatever is difficult for you, may not be for the person next to you, nor is that something hard, necessarily manifested the same for both of you. However, no matter what that hard thing is and how it manifests towards you,
Start the bizz.
Work towards it.
Make one conscious decision at a time.
Be you. Do you. For you.
Fail. Get up. Retry.
It will get better, you will become better and everything will slowly seem easier, because You. Never. Quit.
Focus on the little things, focus on your mindset, your coping skills, your perspective and your WHY. Remember, nothing worthwhile comes easy. Embrace the damn process, the good and the bad!
I tell this to people more times than not, but often need to be reminded myself. Despite feeling the most gratitude towards the life I get to live and the supportive, loving people I am surrounded by and having the ability to do what I want, when I want and having everything I need, life gets hard, times get tough, and I sometimes feel a whirlwind of emotions. These times are when it’s most important to practice what I preach and to remind myself that today is hard, this moment is hard, my emotions and valid, and everything will be freacking ok.
Meanwhile, find me living my best life through the great days and the the not so good ones, by reminding myself of the countless blessings I have in life and how damn lucky I am to get to live a life I am so passionate of.
Be a badass🤍 #BeStrong#ManifestYourDreams#KeepGoing#CountYourBlessings#LivingMyBestLife#BeyondGrateful#DoYou#FindPositivity
