  • This is my son, Oliver, at Donuts with Dads with both of his Dads, his dad and his stepdad. Our family does not have the “typical” Coparenting relationship. It is something outsiders and those closest to us have praised us for always. Our ability to communicate and work together for the best interest of our son. Oliver’s Dad makes that easy. We do not disagree on how we want to raise our child the majority of the time. He is a good compromiser and respects that I am Oliver’s mother. We do not engage in power struggles. We are equally invested in Oliver financially, academically, spiritually, and socially. We spend birthdays together, Christmas morning together, Halloween together, and we sit together at sport events. The dads play on an adult soccer league together and have coached Oliver’s teams together. I wish more people could have this situation. I see families struggle to establish any sort of Coparenting relationship and I see the effects it has on children. Do know it is not always easy. It’s messy. We have good days and bad days. But working together (if possible) is always worth it 💗

  • New Mom of two, who dis?? 😂

It's been a while since I've done an introduction (or reintroduction) of who I am and a lot of you are new (hey y'all!). So here we go:

My name is Desirae Ofori, a Caribbean girl 🇯🇲🇦🇬 born & raised in Miami. I met @slofori in college & we've been married for 8 years. We have two handsome boys Samson (3) Kingston (1.5 months). For 9 years I had a career as a Mental Health Therapist and LTC Care Coordinator. However, I took the jump at the end of 2017, to become a full time Mom Lifestyle Blogger & Visual Artist.

Some of my loves are Jesus, my family, cultures, flavorful food/ music, natural hair/products, reading, listening to podcasts, naptime, chocolate, being creative, and sharing what I learn.

It wasn't until recently I realized & accepted my gift as what I call a Mom Ambassador ❤  My mission is to inspire, educate and empower Mom's to own their full potential and remember that your life & voice matters - beyond the kids, marriage/relationships, and your job/career.

You can find tips, reviews & inspirational writings from me and featured mom's on my blog SincerelyMrsMommy.com and checkout my Art page at @dekeliscustomartanddesigns I'll be back in full swing come October so be on the look out for new blog posts & artwork!

  • She’s a wild one! 🎉 I had a laid back,  family only, boho  birthday party for Charlotte.
🌸 
It was perfect and she loved it. I wish I could have thrown her a bigger detailed party but it just didn’t happen like this year. And I will blog all about that and how having a low key 1st birthday party can be PERFECT 😍
🌸
Thanks to @amazon For getting this mama everything she needed on the fly. 😆 #militarylife

  • This month’s Light In The Tunnel Feature goes to Jenny Dopp. Her fifteen year old daughter Neeley submitted the story saying, “My mom is definitely my light in the tunnel. I was your average 13-year-old: I hung out with friends almost every day and ran on the track team. On February 15, 2017, having ran just the day before, I woke up with extreme fatigue, vertigo, and migraines” and things haven’t been the same since. Searching for a cure and trying to make a difference in the lives around them...is the highlight of this story!! (See Story Link & Chance to Win Music Giftcard Below) ************************************************************
Neely calls her Mom “a real-life hero. Words cannot even describe her sacrifices to me and so many others. Though I could never repay her, I cannot wait to help her feel a glimpse of how much she is appreciated! She plans to use her Light In the Tunnel Gift to take her Mom out for dinner to her favorite restaurant. She and her Dad are planning a surprise party for next Monday. (Shhh...) Pictures to come!
************************************************************
Go to profile for story link. Would you like to win a music giftcard to (itunes, spotify, or googleplay)? Count how many times the word “light” shows up, DM the total, and you’ll be entered to win! Drawing will be held and announced on April 26th.

  • Mother/daughter pedicures today because someone has needed SO much more love the last few weeks while I’ve been spring cleaning (on top of everything else 😜 )! .

Have you noticed just how much more our kids need us the busier we get? 😝

  • Never thought I would meet Lady Gaga!!⁣
.⁣
Ok I didn't really...this is at the Madame Thousands in Hollywood..but it looks pretty dang real!⁣
.⁣
There's a lot of things we say we are "never going to do". But some of those things we say we are never going to do...we want to do...so why aren't we making it happen?⁣
.⁣
Like starting a podcast...you've thought about it and want to do it, but you have no idea where to start! Here are 3 things you can do to get your mindset ready to launch a podcast:⁣
.⁣
1) Brain dump all your topic and podcast ideas. Make a giant list. And keep adding to it when you get inspired as to what it is you want to talk about and share with people.⁣
.⁣
2) Do you market research. Ask your audience questions or things they may be interested in. What does your audience respond to the most? Who else is talking about the same things? This isn't always a bad thing. In fact...if there are hot topics out there, that means everyone is wanting to hear about it.⁣
.⁣
3) Be confident and be you! Yes...there are a million different podcasts out there and probably a few thousand about the very thing you want to start your podcast about...but NO ONE ELSE IS YOU! You will uniquely bring to the podcast world your voice and story!⁣
.⁣
If you are thinking about starting a podcast...I would love to help you get going. I offer a 4 week launch program to help clients get their podcasts set up and launched. DM me if you would like more information.⁣

  • There is an odd obsession in our culture to lose weight. It hits a lot of mom’s postpartum. Wellness is not a number on a scale. Wellness is living well. Your body is a miraculous wonder! It built a freakin human!!! Have the chocolate. Drink the wine. Move because it’s invigorating. Eat because it feeds your body. Do things that fill your soul. Our little people are watching us. It t’is our responsibility to write our own rules of what health looks like. Let’s throw out the scale and stop defining ourselves in pounds. Do it for your children. They see everything... from a small stone on the ground—to how we react to our world! #wellnesswarrior #belove #consciousliving

  • I’m super excited to be returning to @mom2summit next week... this time with a friend!! I mean, I sure do love standing awkwardly alone at parties for days on end and all but something tells me this is going to be a little better 😜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@mvbstyle has the greatest energy and is always smiling. It’s definitely contagious. We’ve only know each other for like a minute but she is one of those friends that leaves you feeling positive and looking forward to seeing her again. I hope she doesn’t get sick of me asking her if my outfit looks okay. She is a pro stylist after all! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We met very randomly on @instagram last fall because she was the only "local" gal that I could find also attending #risetogetheratx in Austin! We connected and planned to meet but just couldn't make it happen... Only to find out that we were basically standing next to each other multiple times that entire weekend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I continued to stalk her after Austin, finally convincing her to come to my event in Geneva and I have loved her ever since! And now we get to go BACK to Austin TOGETHER! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So cheers to new friendships and a few days of fun, networking and developing our business bad selves!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you have a side hustle sister? A business bestie? A work wife? A mama mentor? Share the story of how you met below! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Once upon a family who had a child, this child out of curiosity keeps going into the kitchen, mummy and daddy warns him not to go there one day his cup was full, daddy spanked him such that he knew never to go into the kitchen again. He even warns his sibling when she is trying to move close there by to the kitchen door. 
__
I noticed this was happening to my son. When we are on a walk and it has rained my son will always run into the puddle of water no minding that he's wearing leather shoes, socks and what not (it's me that thinks of that) so I started telling him "Don't enter the puddle" once I see one ahead and I see his eyes I just say "Don't even think about it" and slowly but surely he started avoiding the puddles. This day, it hit me. I started with telling him not to enter the puddle of water and he was avoiding it and when I didn't stop him he ran right into it. That's when I started thinking deeply about it.
__ 
Physiologist say stop saying "Don't" to your children and I'm beginning to see why. In the example above the child was just curious about what's happening in the kitchen... The parents have reenforced that it's a no go area and in a few years they will start forcing him to enter the kitchen and down the like his wife will wonder why he doesn't like the kitchen 😂
__
I know there is a balance in not letting them do whatever they like but there is a difference between letting your child jump down the stairs out of curiosity and letting them not jump in a puddle because of socks and leather shoes or not letting them enter the kitchen because there is POTENTIAL harm. 
__
I'm learning to not kill my child's curiosity because of things that will perish. 😂 Let the children explore, remove everything in arms way, let them climb, put pillows in the floor, let's let them..... __

  • I’m trying to get better about playing with my kids when they want to be played with. Of course, it always happens at the most inconvenient times, right? Like, right when you need to start on dinner. I know you’ve experienced this too! .

And then when I’ve crossed everything off my list that I need to do, and I’m ready to play for the rest of the day with my 3-year-old....she has a game going and says, “No, mom, I’m playing now with my toys. You can play with me when I’m done.” 😳 .
.
.
But I know that she’s going to be grumpy by the end of the day if we don’t have focused playtime! (Definitely her love language right now.) So I’m trying to get better at just dropping what I’m doing if I can (sometimes her brother just has to be fed!) and playing with her when she wants me to. .
.
.
(Bonus: once we’re 20 minutes into playing, I can often get up and go get some things done and she’ll be happy playing by herself next to me for an hour or so!) .

What is your favorite trick for spending ALL the quality time with your kids while still getting the boatload if things done that are calling your name?

  • I’m trying to get better about playing with my kids when they want to be played with. Of course, it always happens at the most inconvenient times, right? Like, right when you need to start on dinner. I know you’ve experienced this too! .

  • I don’t care what you believe in, as long as you BELIEVE in something! ✨ .

Doing this journey with my two right by my side more and more each day has changed my outlook on life. This AM when I went to do my workout and the chaos of them around me wasn’t present it started to bring my spirit down. I was in a dark place for so long that there are times I’m afraid to be alone. So, instead of letting the quiet guide my day, I blasted that music. Danced a bit and got to hustling! .

If you’re ready to be apart of something greater, if you’re wanting change, if you ever feel alone; I want you to know that my door is always open! I want you to feel the fire inside again! 
Are you ready? 🌻

  • Hi everybody! I figured that I should introduce myself. My name is Jessica. I am married to my best friend of 5.5 yrs and have 3 kids. We are from Idaho, but currently live in Arizona. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love to be crafty, do some amateur baking and decorating, cook, organize (when my kids allow 🤣), and sleep! I hand draw chalkboard art designs, try to recreate DIY Pinterest ideas, and enjoy watching Netflix, Hulu and Vudu shows. 
My hope and goal is to help moms know they aren't alone in the struggles of every day mommyhood, while empowering, uplifting, inspiring, serving, & loving moms all around the world.
If there is a certain type of topic that you would like me to write on, feel free to message me! I love hearing from others!

  • I’m SO Type A. Constantly having to get things done and stay on task. Which can be an amazing asset!!! I have a 4-month-old, a 3-year-old, I run a business, and am almost done spring cleaning my entire house! .
.
.
But being so Type A also means that I am constantly focusing on todo lists and have a hard time being intentional with my self care, with relaxation, and with family time even. .
.
.
So I am trying to work on using my planning talent plan my way to being more intentional! Especially with my kids.
.
.
.
Is it easy for you to relax and take care of yourself and spend time with your family?

  • Several weeks ago, while playing at my husbands school campus park, a dear friend of mine knew by just the way I looked, that I was suffering inside. All it took was one simple question. "How are you doing?" To say the least, I started bawling. She came to my side and gave me the biggest hug. After explaining to her that I was struggling with some anxiety and postpartum depression, she invited me and my kids over to her house to play and have dinner. I accepted the invitation, because I knew how important it was for me to have some good, quality time with one of my adult girlfriends. That visit truly was such a burden lifter! She shared with me some ideas to help ease my pains, told me that she was always there for me, if I needed some alone time from my kids, a trip to the temple, or whatever else it may be. Check out the rest of the post on my blog page! Link in the bio!

  • Talking with a Momma ready for more, ready to take action in her own life & to stop letting the world tell her what she's worth; hearing her excitement fuels the fire and passion in me even more for doing what I do! So excited to run with her on this journey and thanking God for bringing us together. ✨
Nothing better than seeing the fire in someone else that you’ve had in yourself for so long... that’s a big part of my why! When you love what you do and the fact that something so incredible can bring so much happiness, purpose and freedom; it’s just truly amazing!
✨
Yes, I know it can be scary and I know you feel like no one has it as hard as you or no one gets the amount of work you already have to do. But I want to remind you that all of the “successful” ones out there have those same fears, feel that same stress, and they still run towards a life of impact, meaning, and happiness. ✨
This is meant to be a kick in the you-know-what, because something tells me you need it. Stop waiting for the perfect time, the perfect situation, the perfect plan and just do it; take action!  Faith means having complete trust and confidence, it means going for it even when you have no idea what your doing. You may even surprise yourself and actually find your purpose through doing so. 💋💕💋

  • When I am kind to myself.
When I move my body.
When I eat clean.
When I relax.
When I am outside. 
When I clear my head. 
I look, act & feel so much better. .
Everyday, I am still learning new ways to try & love myself. Everyday new things happen that chip at my spirit. Taking care of the mind, body and heart gets easier if you are persistent. Keep going mamas 🖤 .

I love this specific illustration, and many many more from the talented artist @broken_isnt_bad .

  • Spring has put a little pep in my step!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm a girl that suffers from SAD (seasonal affective disorder), vitamin D deficiency, RBF (resting bitch face) AND a propensity for all the sad feeling thingys. Since "go back to bed" is neither a sustainable nor productive habit for a mom to have (at least on a daily basis), I have to find a way to get myself into a more positive mood. So, that means filling my days with things and people I love and (this one is key) then taking a moment to APPRECIATE all of those things.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What kinds of things? Lately it's been chirping birds in the trees and ducks in our pond, pops of color in my yard and closet, the squeals of my kids as they find worms peeking out after rain and flower buds starting to open, making new friends and finding commonalities with strangers. Ok, and tacos and palomas.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday was one of those days when I laid down in bed with my mind racing a million miles an hour. Not because I was stressed but because I was SO excited to wake up again today!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Over the course of my day yesterday, I met and interacted with more than a dozen incredible and inspiring women which left me giddy with excitement. To get to know them, to work with them, to learn from them, to teach them, and more. Women running things and creating things. Women speaking up and making changes in the world. Women having fun.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And, for the record, you don't have to be starting a business to be doing any of those things, mama.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So maybe it's the weather, or my pretty dress, some new shoes, or the tasty paloma (seriously, #favesummerdrink), but my mood is ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you finding your mood/attitude improving at all these days? Share⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • I saw @seb_loves stories on the weekend and it got me thinking; so much of what we see on insta is staged. It can really mess with how we think 🤔 I’ve actually had to mute some accounts as I end up feeling like I’m not good enough as a mum when I start playing the comparison game 🤦🏼‍♀️ I try to keep my page real and transparent, I mean I’m on here to journal essentially and hope that I connect and maybe even help someone along the way.⠀
•⠀
I pick photos because they make me happy. But I write captions which are 💯 real life. I am an open book in real life so I try to be here too. I would hate for someone to be looking at my feed and thinking I have my shit together 🤣🤣 we are still in survival mode, and realistically we will be for a while longer. My daily expectation of myself is to keep the kids alive, loved and go to the park or play outside if at all possible. I dance along the border of wanting to share with the world how amazing my babes are and wanting to keep their lives private.⠀
•⠀
People are naturally envious of what they perceive others to have. But that’s the key, it’s all perception. That mum who has her shit together and has the sleeping kid and time to exercise might not have family support. That mum with family support might not have friends. It’s all perception and I really think we should try to be happy with what we have, even if the hand you’ve been dealt isn’t what you wanted or expected. ⠀
⠀
This account will never be an ad for stuff, it’ll be as staged as me taking selfies so I have photos with my kids 🤣 it’ll continue to be photos that make me happy and probably moans about how I never get enough sleep 👌🏼💁🏼‍♀️

  • The best part about life? Is every morning you have the opportunity to become a happier version of yourself.😌🙌🏼
.

What if this time, you told yourself YOU CAN!
What if,just this one time you didn’t quit on yourself.
What if, this time you keep your promise to YOURSELF...
When was the last time you actually kept a promise to YOURSELF? 
What if, just this once you did? You never know when just this one time can change your whole life.😘🤘🏼 #yougotthis

  • It's Monday

It's cold and rainy

One day its spring, the next its winter again

I am over it

I am tired

I am still showing up

Maybe not with the same energy and enthusiastically as I usually do, but I am putting one foot in front of the other. The thing is, you have to realize there will be days like this. And it's okay. But if you give into the low energy completely, you are bound to drag it into another day, and that will not get you any closer to my big vision. Instead, chose to honour your melancholy mood, but also find ways to show up for your bigger vision in small ways that don't require a lot of mental energy.

What does that look like?

Reading books that are inspiring

Listening to uplifting videos and podcasts and taking notes

Checking small menial tasks off your to-do list

So tomorrow, when your mood has shifted, you will be inspired and ready to take big action, and you won't have to worry about that growing list of little things (like cleaning out your refrigerator or calling to schedule a vet appointment)

  • “ Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t be everything to everyone. Daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, employee, caregiver, friend... there will be cooking, cleaning, errands, bills & chores galore; busy days & sleepless nights; hours of anxiety and moments of joy... people won’t remember the 99 things you did for them, only the one thing you didn’t do. Know if your heart that you are good enough & always keep trying your best. Life is a challenge for all of us in different ways. Support; don’t judge.”
.
.
In their eyes I’m always a winner. I will never stop believing and reaching my goals. One of my biggest goals in life is to be an amazing role model for my girls. To show them there is no “I” in team and there is no such thing as a quitter. When you don’t succeed, you get back up again and keep trying.
.
.
Moms, anything is possible and don’t think it’s not. I have a full time job, full time mom, coach my daughters soccer team, and train for marathons. If you truly want something in life, it can happen. Dedication and determination is key! Wake up everyday and be a better person than you were the day before. Have dreams, set goals, and just simply give 110 percent in everything that you do.
.
.
Family is everything and after losing my mom, I’ve learned that life is way too short. You need to make every second, every minute, and every hour count. Enjoy it, cherish it, and be grateful. Thank God for all the many blessings he has brought in your life.

Daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, employee, caregiver, friend... there will be cooking, cleaning, errands, bills & chores galore; busy days & sleepless nights; hours of anxiety and moments of joy... people won’t remember the 99 things you did for them, only the one thing you didn’t do. Know if your heart that you are good enough & always keep trying your best. Life is a challenge for all of us in different ways. Support; don’t judge.”
    .
    .
    In their eyes I’m always a winner. I will never stop believing and reaching my goals. One of my biggest goals in life is to be an amazing role model for my girls. To show them there is no “I” in team and there is no such thing as a quitter. When you don’t succeed, you get back up again and keep trying.
    .
    .
    Moms, anything is possible and don’t think it’s not. I have a full time job, full time mom, coach my daughters soccer team, and train for marathons. If you truly want something in life, it can happen. Dedication and determination is key! Wake up everyday and be a better person than you were the day before. Have dreams, set goals, and just simply give 110 percent in everything that you do.
    .
    .
    Family is everything and after losing my mom, I’ve learned that life is way too short. You need to make every second, every minute, and every hour count. Enjoy it, cherish it, and be grateful. Thank God for all the many blessings he has brought in your life.

  • I know when a child turns 1 or 18 months in our part of the world, the next step is to go school hunting (I did too) but can you please take a step back for abit and think about your education philosophy... I was forced to think about mine which made me make the decision to homeschool and I know many people may/can not homeschool but thinking about the philosophy will guide you in choosing a school for your child and how you respond to the things you see if you don't find the school that fits your philosophy. 
__
Example @playandlearnng her child's school doesn't do exams (and I think homework, please correct me) and she carefully picked the school because of that. If you don't find a school that fits your philosophy you won't make a fuss about some things you don't think should be a criteria to grade students. 
__
This is mostly important for early years education because it forms the foundation for learning throughout their lives! I mean.... We all still wonder where our maths application is in real life but the truth is there is maths EVERYWHERE!!! We don't see it because we were not taught to see it like that. 
All I ask this morning and this is that you do abit of research on education for your little ones and think about where you lean towards for their education!! __
Have a great week mamas!!!

  • Reposting an old photo just cause I love it. It’s hard to remember a time when Harvey Bear was still in my puku. Sometimes I miss the mama and me time I had with my little Fin Bubble, but mostly I love it now seeing how she is growing into her role of big sister. These two, and Dan (duh) are honestly all I need in life 💕

  • I need to refocus and get back to this. 5 years ago I started a journey. And I've learned so much about myself along the way!! Getting fit has been more of an internal transformation than anything else. 
However, sometimes people fall back into old habits. The difference is knowing how to get yourself back up or not. 
Tomorrow I'm refocusing my attention. Reading more. Reflecting more. And regaining control. 
I'm just so glad I have a team of people behind me always cheering for my success. It truly makes all the difference.
