✨ Happy 12th Anniversary ✨⠀
Where does the time go? Love you more than yesterday 💛 In quarantine heaven with this guy 🥰⠀
Find joyous moments today. Despite what’s happening outside, there’s lots of good happening too. Phone a friend. Tell your family you love them. Make someone’s day. ⠀
What will you do today? 🌈
Today is a big day in my book! Today Maci Cooks hit 100 subscriber! Now I’m not going to lie that number is pretty cool to me! However, the coolest thing has been watching all of you try my recipes! Seeing you guys get in the kitchen with your kids, share food with your families, and grow your confidence; is the greatest gift! /
When I started my channel the main goal was to catalog my recipes for my girls, find relief for a creative itch, and spread some joy! What I found in the process has been more than I can even explain. I have laughed, learned, and felt more in tune with a “me” that I haven’t seen in a very long time! /
All I can say is “thank you”! Thank you to all of you who have been supportive of not just this channel, but everything I have ever tried. I can honestly say to my girls “be yourself”, because that will bring you immeasurable peace!Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there! /
Get Baking Y’all! /
I believe strongly in choice. Everyone has the choice of what to focus their energy on. Given any other choice, I will ALWAYS choose laughter. It's just who I am.
It's scary times right now. We are facing a situation that has never been seen in our generation. Social distancing is a new concept for most Americans. As a family, my husband and I decided to start social distracting a week ago (with our 3.5-year-old daughter). It wasn't mandatory in our area, we just felt it was the best choice for us right now.
Thankfully my husband and I are very similar. We have always used laughter to get through rough times. Now is no different. Hopefully, we are teaching our daughter to do that also.
This post by @the_champagne_chick caused me to stop scrolling and laugh out loud. I consistently look for moments, things or posts that tickle my funny bone. It's a great brain break from working as well.
Tonight I'll also take this suggestion to heart. A bottle of bubbly is already chilling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How about you? What do you choose?
[Side note - I LOVE to see follow @the_champagne_chick on Instagram and Facebook. She always makes me laugh]

14 Day Self Imposed Quarantine over finally #quarantinelife 😶
...not in any hurry to go anywhere though. Haven’t started my Jeep in 24 days🤷♀️! Tons of quality time with my family🥰
Ali Grace (my daughter) is a senior in college and had her Spring Break 3 weeks ago. For her last big Hoorah we decided to take a cruise to somewhere tropical with my sister🛳✈️☀️🌴
The world’s situation wasn’t anything like it is now when we booked our cruise or left, but certainly exploded while we were gone.
I couldn’t tell you how many times Ali Grace & I checked each other for a fever and talked about if we had symptoms over the last 15 days😳
We had a great TIME away together🥰! Lots to laughs! Our cruise took us to Honduras, Belize & Cozumel. This is the beach we snorkeled from in Cozumel-a beautiful piece of paradise💙 Lisa had never snorkeled before. Ali Grace and I were so excited we got to do this with her for her first time. She loved it💙
Our cruise had 4,000+ passengers plus a huge staff who took extreme measures to keep us safe all day everyday. At one of our ports 10 other cruise ships docked also🛳😳
It was our decision to go of course so I have stayed home for 14+ days since we left the country and were exposed to SO many people JUST IN CASE other than walking/running out here. SOCIAL DISTANCING of course! We are all symptom free by the way! So thankful🙏🏻
My daughter left yesterday to go back to college for Nursing school clinicals in the hospital🙏🏻😔
Wish we were back on this beautiful beach together watching the boats sail across the ocean eating Mahi Mahi tacos and ceviche🌴
Hope you have a great week. Stay safe!

خب همین اول کار اعتراف میکنم من ۱ درصد مثل این عکس خوشحال و خندون نیستم فقط وسط تمیزکاری کاغذ رنگی ها و جینگیل پینگیلا این عکسو گرفتم که به صفحه ام جون بده یکم 😕
و ۲ بار متن طولانی نوشتم و پاک کردم و دیدم هنوز سکوت بهترین انتخابه چون الان به طرز مسخره ای همه چیز عجیب و بدِ !
پارسال این موقع ها تو گل فروشی و لباس فروشی و باغ گل و اینجور جاها بودم و همه درگیریم این بود که سفره هفت سین رو چه جوری بچینیم اما الان ... امیدوارم سالم و سلامت باشین این ارزو این روزهامه برای همتون 💞
This is by far one of my favourite things to do to enhance connection with the people in my life.
Nothing like good food, deep belly laughs and good humans.
Right now it’s ok to grieve the temporary pause we’re in, especially when it comes to those rituals that truly nourish you.
Yes, we can adapt, innovate and still find very creative ways to meet those same needs for connection, AND we can be simultaneously grieving the absence of our preferred ways of connecting.
In fact this current paradox of holding two different realities together, teaches us the skill of being able to hold opposing feelings and experiences without having to abandon the ones we find uncomfortable or don’t like.
In today’s Self-Love Service, I talked about the mysterious nature of true love, and our conflicting quest for certainty.
On one hand we want to find the right methods, the right scripts, the right behaviours to ensure that love will never leave. In other words we are searching for certainty.
But love, love dwells in the mystery. It’s nature is sweet, but unpredictable. True love helps flush out the old dense material we’ve locked away. True love, calls us to explore our limitations and blocks. True love shines a big honking spotlight on any area where we’re camped out in mediocrity and invites us into excellence though change.
For most of us these experiences are uncomfy, difficult and don’t always feel like lovey dovey romantic love.
But the more skilled we become at holding the duality, the more embodied with true love we become.
So, if you’re feeling the push and pull from those opposing forces within you right now, please know it’s normal.
It’s normal to grieve when change comes.
It’s normal to grieve the rituals you counted on for your well-being.
It’s also normal to feel enriched, enlivened and inspired by change.
And normal to explore the sweetness of new innovative rituals.
Whatever you’re feeling, it’s a valid response to reality right now.
We’re in this together fam.
If you feel inspired, share below a ritual you love that’s on pause right now, or a new ritual you’re enjoying inside of the time of the great global pause. ❤️
