Cutest sibling snuggle ever. First time for these two. Oliver was kept in a very dark room left alone often, and had a hard time opening up even to me when he first got here. I spent hours petting him with one finger through the spaces in my closet shelf, putting treats on one of his toys to get him to eat; QueenDee has always been the star of the show at home since she has been part of our family; and these two have always gotten along yes ....but I am so proud of our QueenDina!!! She has really stepped up being a big sister to this young man and our Oliver!!! he has really come out of his shell. His newest Attitude lately you could describe as prince of the house and this picture is just so special to me because he acts like such a tough guy and Dina acts like such a jealous girl sometimes..... I see that they are actually SO close! I’ve turned into complete mush. I’m done, you can find me melted from cuteness on my couch now; pure #ooey#gooey#lovely#mush !!! my heart is bursting! Thank you all for sharing this moment with me, for these two animals as individuals this is a big deal. My heart is warm and so are they together. #siblings#siblingslove#siblingsbelike#furbabies#cuddleweather#myloves#purrfect#pair#dogsofinstagram#catsofinstagram#bostonterrier#mainecoon#bigsisterlittlebrother#familyfirst#yinyang#bestfriends
It’s been a rough couple of days here. Strep spiraled into terrible ear aches and breathing issues that kept us up most of the night. Snug’s temp rocketed to 103.7 this morning and we have been to the doctor to test again for flu, which was negative and to have x-rays for pneumonia which were also negative. Back at home tonight, her other ear is hurting but we know how to mange the pain better this time around and everyone is snuggly and in love. Sometimes exhaustion from sickies can be a lovely snuggled up ending to a stressful long weekend. #snuganditybits#myloves#rootdown#riseup#totherevolutions#alldefinitionsapply
Bath time my pretties 🛁
I have a dessert mist in the living area, an aria in the lounge, a dessert mist in Peytons room, a bamboo in the powder room, a feather the owl in Archers room and another feather the owl in Oaklys room.
Next up - Rainstone in my room!
The obsession is real . .
But a clean diffuser is a happy diffuser .
And i must admit I do not clean my diffusers 2/3 times a week like I should, I feel I don't even clean myself that often.. But it is important if you want the best use out of your beloved diffuser or if you are like me diffusers.
Obviously remove from power source.
Get in dump that excess water and oil out.
Give a good ol rincey rince with water .
Spray your cloth woth some thieves, because- thieves.
Wipe all up and around that bad boy.
Get a little cotton swabby
Gently wipe down that censor and by gentle , I mean gentle af.
Give another little rincey rince and dry off.
Plug back in and get all that essential oil goodness back up ya nostrils.
You . Are . Welcome 💁🏼♀️

May not look like much to you but ,this new field drainage system is much needed. Great job guys! Hard work never hurt anyone. I’m super proud the these guys. #learning#myloves ❤️❤️❤️💙💙
I have been blessed with you. You accept me for me and not my appearance, you didnt have to but you accept and care for my babies too. When I sit there and watch you play with them, it melts my heart and makes me fall for you even more.
When I first separated I didnt know how dating with kids would work out, if I'd even find someone who'd be crazy enough to want me with 2 kids. But god blessed me with an amazing guy.
From the moment we told Jax he was going to be a big brother we knew he was going to be a darn good one. From the day Leila was born he has been so hands on, really wanting to help & be involved. He has been very protective of her and every now and again I have to remind him that he doesn't need to parent her, that's mum & dads job...He can relax! 😂
I dread the day when Leila begins dating (in her 20's 😜) any prospective date will have to deal with a over protective big brother AND daddy 🤦🏼♀️ #brotherlylove#myloves#family
There is no greater honor, love, or blessing than being their mom. Being able to wake up every day and see their smiles is more than I could ever ask for. God has saved me in so many ways from so many hardships I’ve had to endure as a child and young adult to bringing into my life a man that holds the same hopes and dreams for our future. Being able to build a life with him and our amazing children is my greatest dream come true. Our greatest love and accomplishment summed up in these lives you see here. @kalusha29 you are the greatest love of my life in addition to our beautiful children and cannot imagine this lifetime with anyone else but you! 14 years is the blink of an eye and I pray that God blesses us with many more because a lifetime is not enough to love you.❤️ ❤️ ❤️ #famILY#love#myloves
“Sibling Bond” 36”x24” oil on dibond. Private collection. 2015.
Tonight is one of those nights my mind is racing with emotions which inspires painting ideas for me. As most of you know, I’m not “allowed” to paint my children for personal reasons at the moment (I will be able to sooner then later and I’m not angry about it...frustrated, yes... but not angry)... BUT...tonight I’m really wishing I could paint them! My heart bursts thinking about the love I have for my children and my paintings are a way for me to express all those emotions.
This painting was inspired by my children’s strength and bond during and after my divorce from their father. I was so worried about how our divorce would affect them and was surprised by how strong they were. I love seeing the bond my kids have together! They don’t realize how lucky they are to have one another. My hopes is to create paintings that are a part of my diary that people can somehow connect with.
How do you find ways to express how you feel in your paintings? #artcollector#mychildren#myloves#oilpainting#contemporaryart#baltimoremuseumofart#newmexicoartist#artistsoninstagram#shanalevenson
