Ten years ago I broke my femur fractured my knee and pelvis and hit my head pretty bad. Crazy what we can go through and heal and grow . Learned a lot in my life so blessed in so many ways, life teaches you to be strong and see what’s important . #reminiscing#ironwoman#brokenfemur#guardianangel#bff .
Dont usually post this kinda thing. .
Just came across this photo.
And just thought shit.
This happend .
It's so weird to think about .
Listen to the world but don't let em take over you thoughts.
Smile to their jokes but don't let the fake jokes get to you.
Most importantly "Do it" if you feel it's right no matter how hard the tides are, just swim across it. #MorningRoutine #morningposts#morningvibes
Life is good. Our home is a bit emptier this year. Can’t say I love that. But I love thinking about what they’re doing out there! So many talents! So many hearts full of compassion and sharing love. Far from perfect. But exceptional to me. Our fam bam. If each of us touches one soul for the better each day, that’s ten people who are encouraged. Compound interest baffles me. But I think this would mean many many lives touched over the years. My goal is that each one would love Jesus more when they go their different ways. That they will see Him in our eyes and feel His touch through our serving. I pray that we will be faithful and forgiving. And I the end, that He will be pleased. #thankfulandblessed#spreadingthelove
3 years ago on Nov 24 2016 (thanksgiving day) came to @hukilau_kauai for dinner after a long long day of working on getting @thelocalkauai ready to open and that very day while having thanksgiving dinner we sat around the table and realized we were done and ready to open and while sitting there with @erinemily13 and @liquidchefkauai we decided we would open the next day while my mom sat next to us listening to our conversation and enjoying a bowl of their killer lobster bisque and now she’s back and her one request was for me to bring her back to have the bisque again while visiting and here we are tonight @dalilalaurentin I love you very much and me and Julian are very happy to have you here for the holidays, #reminiscing about the past and looking forward to the future but living in the present #blessed#thankful , it’s not about what you have done in the past or what will happen in the future, it’s all about enjoying the ride. #cheers to being alive in good company and enjoying the gift, that’s why is called present. #friday13th#memories
This dresser was what we bought for our firstborn and continued to use for our second and then morphed into an entryway “holder of all things” and then morphed back into a dresser for clothes and now to a “holder of random things that we might need on the way out the door”... this dresser has been with us for almost seven years. Yes, it’s only a piece of furniture. But, to me, it represents a time that was so precious. And it’s a piece of our family.
We have to let it go as it is not working in our home. I really don’t want to but have to let go at some point.
I look at these dresser and I remember the day we went to buy nursery things while pregnant. I remember filling those drawers with diapers, onesies, little cardigans, and tiny vests. I remember filling the bottom two drawers with soft toys and books for easy access while playing on the floor.
Now I see our firstborn grow so much. Thin out and get taller. I miss little baby him.
I see our second grow more and more mature, pronouncing words correctly and losing his baby voice. I miss little baby him.
Glad I got photos of their babyhood. But even though I have many moments in my mind, the private moments I had with them, changing them, drying them after a bath, snuggling, playing peekaboo with blankets... those are what I cherish and will have in my heart forever... I better re-read this when they turn 16 and their attitudes change even more...
I will never regret taking “too many” pictures.
I always hear people say, “Live in the moment and forget about your phone!”
But honestly, I can still “Live in the moment” and take all the pictures!
I am basically the only one in my family who takes pictures and if I hadn’t taken this picture, there wouldn’t be any images of this moment!
This picture is special because this is the first time my older two boys met and held their little brother!
I think the only thing I might regret, is not having a better way of storing all my pictures!
Reminiscing of 🦃 eve with the homies.
Really I’m distracting myself from getting my final papers (yes plural) done😬.
Last thing I want to do on a Friday night after a brutal week...I did get it started though!
This was a first in a LONG time since all of us had some laughs and too many drinks together. Missed it❣️.
I hope y’all have a crew with this much heart and the capacity to make you laugh as hard as they do. My apologies for knocking food out of both your hands and spilling the water 😂.
Next big stop, Ohio💃🏻🕺🏼💪🏼 #angelosprivateclub#familyphotos
