  • Continuing our countdown, this was the second most popular video of 2019. I’m not sure why, because it’s not as though Abigail was  doing anything funnier or cuter than my other videos. It’s possible that it got shown somewhere that brought a lot of visitors? Or maybe it’s the peacefulness and hearing her purr for the first time? It’s a bit of a mystery to me. What do you think was the appeal? #theUkeekittens #fosterkittens

  • Hold onto the vision and trust the process.

10 months ago, I moved to a new city, alone, to peruse my nursing degree. This is something I’ve never done before and it’s been amazing, but also really hard.

Moving away from your hometown, where everything is familiar, your family is close and you love your jobs, is really hard.

The first 10 months for me have been really amazing. I’ve learned so much, not only nursing related but about myself.

My work ethic, what I’m passionate about, my goals for the future and where I want to end up.

But I’ve had my struggles too.

I miss my hometown. Everything about it. Although it’s only an hour and a half away, I feel like sometimes I’m thousands of miles away. I’ve had the days where all I want is to go home. Some days are harder than others, but I know this is worth it in the end.

I love what and who I am becoming!

6 months from now, I’ll be graduating and starting a completely different chapter in my life. For now, patients, grit and perseverance are exactly what I need.

If you are going through anything that is challenging you in this moment... Pause. Breathe. Cry if you must. But keep going. It will all be worth it.

I know, I know. It’s just a palm tree during a really pretty sunset. But real quick - I’m feeling so grateful to live a life where we can have our home in DE with all four seasons, but also be able to travel whenever we want to wherever we want that will bring us joy at that time - whether it’s the snowy mountains of Colorado or it’s the palm tree filled beaches of Puerto Rico. I mean seriously! How freaking lucky are we that we don’t have to ask for time off of work. We don’t have to worry about not getting paid because we want to travel. I’m not saying you have to do what we do for a living. But I am saying - life is so short. Do the things you love. Travel to the places you want to see. You shouldn’t have to just live in order to work for the rest of your life. You should work hard so you can truly live for the rest of your life. No one is tying you to that job you hate or are complaining about constantly. You are always only one decision away from living the life you deserve to live. Go and get it. We did. And I can tell you - through all the head trash & naysayers & doubts, it is so freaking worth it.

  • I got all dressed up yesterday for my good friend’s baby shower and I loved how good I felt. 
Partly because I do not have many reasons to dress up right now. But also because I am almost 15lbs down since December and I am feeling all the positive benefits. 
My clothes are no longer tight. My skin looks good. My mood and energy are in a good space. I even feel a lot of my confidence coming back, especially with everything I have going on now. 
Overall, even though this is the busiest I have been in many years, I am so glad that I rejoined @ww and got back into this positive and productive headspace. I do not think I would have been able to take on so much right now if it was not for rejoining.

  • Took some product pictures with one of my little minion helpers this weekend 🖤 Having kids is one of my biggest dreams in life. I LOVE them more than anything and feel grateful every single day (well ... almost 😅). My kids however, does not stop me from fulfilling the rest of my dreams. Everything simply takes more time, but that’s okay. I have promised my self to never use any one else as an excuse for not doing what I want ▪️ #noexcuses #itsworthit #workingmother #entrepreneur

  • How do you find yourself?

Here are just a few tips to help you get started on reflecting inwards: ✨ Let go of the need to be loved by all ✨ Spend time with yourself, and put the electronics away - this will give you time to hear your inner dialogue ✨ Write out your own personal goals and dreams even if others think they are unachievable, and look at them often. Ask yourself what is holding you back? ✨ Let go of the negative - positivity is nourishing and opens you up to new experiences and things ✨ Practice daily gratitude - discovering what things you are most thankful for and giving thanks for them will help you identify what is important to you. This practice is life changing, try it!! ✨ Let go of relationships and things that make you feel bad and follow your inner guidance to seek out what resonates with you ✨ Create healthy boundaries

The best thing you can do for yourself is to take care of you. We all know we can't pour from an empty cup, so take time to fill yours and do the things that make YOU feel happy 🙂

  • Questa settimana è iniziata con la carica giusta! L’accoglienza che mi ha riservato @specializeditaly oggi mi ha fatto sentire davvero speciale. 
Ormai sono un po’ di anni che sono al mio fianco a supportarmi, mi hanno visto ridere ma anche piangere, condiviso vittorie ma anche sconfitte, mi conoscono come atleta ma anche come Alice. 
Anche quest’anno saremo insieme per raggiungere nuovi traguardi!!

My kid is all snotty and is also a cuddler😷

She texted me from her dads yesterday and asked for elderberry. So I made a fresh batch!
-
Makes a mama happy!
-
Today she’s with me and we’re both taking it!

Have you tried elderberry before?  Is it a staple in your house?

  • Feta!

72 hours ago Scott and Boden started with fresh cows milk. After heating the milk, adding the culture, rennet, and lipase, the curds were cut and scooped into cheese cloth. The curds and cheese cloth were hung in a warm room to mature. Finally 72 hours later it was time to slice. 
But it still is not feta. The slices are now brined and moved into the cheese cave to age. Weeks, up  to years later, depending on how long we choose to age the feta, it will be time to eat the feta.

  • A part of my morning routine; especially when I cannot sleep and wake up waaaay too early is to read the daily scripture on my Holy Bible app. 
Today’s scripture: Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap if we not faint.  Galatians 6:9 
Translation: DO NOT give up! Keep going.  Continue to do your part. Continue to put in the work and you will see results. 
I needed that.  I hope it helps you.  It’s easy to feel defeated when you don’t see the fruits of your labor as you visualize them.  Sometimes life circumstances complicate matters and make you feel that what you are doing is in vain.  Keep going.  Find your passion. Share it with others. Your work is a treasure for others to enjoy. #keepgoing #driven #passion #determination #itsworthit

  • Being on a #debtfreejourney is hard when you want to buy your kids fun outdoor toys (my current mental state), but goodness... when you see that smile because they bought themself the skate board they really wanted, and worked hard to earn the money... priceless!
.
Teaching the value of earning money and then being very strategic on how you want to spend it, now that’s a life lesson I want my kids to learn! They can’t learn if every time they want something, I just go buy it for them. It’s life lessons like these that mold them and teach them!
.
Isn’t my mom cute? She helped teach my girl how to ride a skateboard on their long driveway.

  • Reconnected with some of our first customers and now great friends today😀 About three years ago these amazing people @petekellmartinez @petekellmartinez picked me and the CAN. brand off the ground, after a really rough patch. @spiritofcan apparel had just dropped into a local store in #kapaa After just a few days we got the boot without explanation and a pretty rude email. But, right about that time these awesome guys had bought shirts at that store and we’re all in on CAN. Their belief in the #spiritofcan reinforced our conviction and mission, at a time we needed it most! You never know how and when people will show up in your life... So, always leave the door open. #askforhelp and be open to it🙏 #customersforlife #friendsforlife #nevergiveup #riseup #sufferthrough #itsworthit #aloha #peopleareawesome 🤙 #canperiod
