МОЯ КОСЬКА ❤️
До сих пор моментами не верю, что это милое создание почти как годик часть нашей семьи. В годиков 5-6 или раньше у меня уже был котик.. Он любил летать к потолку и обратно, а если не любил, то должен был терпеть :с
Это был взрослый кот и в какой-то день мне сказали что он убежал (так ли это неизвестно).
После него я всю жизнь ужасно хотела завести еще одного. У меня в семье котов не терпели от слова вообще.. Начиная говорить на эту тему, на меня либо кричали, либо не слушали. О котиках пришлось забыть 😔
Как оказалось, не навсегда ☺️ Вечерком за день до выпуска из 9 класса я вроде как что-то смотрела или зависала в телефоне, не помню. Ко мне в комнату зашла мама, доставая что-то явно живое из-под куртки. Думаю "ну ёжик наверное или шо" 🙃
Я не могла сразу въехать что это мой котик и он будет жить у нас, но сразу расплакалась 😭💔 Мы назвали "его" Марсиком. Когда все твердили мне что это будет девочка, я отнекивалась. Впрочем, оказалось девочка. Теперь так и зовут Марсэла, Марся 😹
Любимая стервочка, но в то же время очень чистоплотная и милая коська ^^ А еще она ходит гулять через окно, но всегда возвращается ко мне спать ☺️
Вот так воть 🐈
Sometimes it’s good to see the world from a different angle 😉 Next week we have a really looooooong free weekend in Poland but due to airline rules for🤰🏻I cannot fly anywhere... So staycations, here we go 😃 Do you have any staycation tips for me? I think we will drive somewhere for a picnic maybe 🤔 #lowangle#girlsaroundworld#captureyourstyle

We’ll just file this painting under “things I wasn’t expecting to paint but just sorta happened”. I started this piece with a plan to paint something completely different but then I just felt like painting boats 🤷🏻♀️ I’ll blame it on the painting I finished just before this one of Cape Breton 🙃. I think you just have to follow the flow when it hits you - That’s honestly when my best work happens! This piece will be released at my show on May 4 + 5. Full painting will be revealed soon!

I spent 2 days on the waitlist for a sold out Beyoncé themed cycle class, but my patience paid off and someone dropped out. I didn’t get to choose my seat, so I’m front and center, but I will gladly do it for our Lord and Savior Beyoncé Knowles. And also with you. And with your spirit, etc.🙏🏻

Totally just realized I didn’t post any Easter photos!
We seriously had the best Easter experience at the @langhampasadena. I’ve never been big on Easter, but now with Victoria almost two years and able to be totally immersed in such an experience, it was just the best.
Holidays weren’t the most fun when Victoria was an infant. They were actually more on the stressful side! But now that she’s almost two, life with baby has become so much fun and full of laughs, watching her explore and learn.

This is 10.5 months 💗
Loves giving hugs. Loves jumping & playing in mom and dads bed, especially with her big sister. Waves “hi” and “buh-bye.” Nods and shakes her head. Loves clapping her hands and playing peek-a-boo with the curtains. Stands unassisted for short periods, and tries often to take steps on her own. Her hair is getting and blonder and longer, and curls when it’s wet. Fully weaned. We’ve learned she has a sensitivity to cows milk. Loves causing mischief and getting dirty. Loves being outside. Has two teeth and is currently cutting 4 more. Loves to play, laugh, and make others laugh 💗
"I just want to acknowledge the quiet warriors in this foster care world, the ones who’s lives can change in an instant and who’s needs may be put slightly on the back burner while we manage the chaos, the ones who never complain, who get attached and then say goodbye and then again welcome strangers into their home, even their own bedroom, without a second thought, the ones who ask “who’s next?” with an excitement and curiosity of who could come into our lives at any point.
people often ask me if i worry about how foster care effects him. of course i worry, but i worry more about raising a child oblivious and unaware of a world outside of his bubble. when our daughter came to us, for the first time in his life he was aware that some kids don’t have parents, homes or even food to eat and that the kind of life he lives is often the exception. i remember the moment i explained this to him and watched as his little mind processed it all. this broke his heart in the best ways. it opened his eyes to a world outside of his own and in that he gained an empathy toward others that im not entirely certain i would have been able to do on my own.
i’m just so proud of you, kid. that is all."

It’s almost family photo season when everything is green 🌿 and you get to hop IN the photos with the people who you love the very most. 🎉💕
Most days are filled with diaper changes, potty training, cutting up food, cleaning up spills, face wiping, nose wiping and handling all the things. Sprinkle in the tickles, laughs, book reading, hugs, kisses (sometimes on ouchies) and the hilarious things your kids say or do (like putting a pull up down the laundry chute.. aka: my life this week 🙈🤣🤷🏻♀️).
But on family photo day you get everyone dressed out of their pjs or play clothes, brush their hair a bit more, and even mama gets to get ready (woot! 🙌🏻). And you know what, sometimes the kiddos smile for the photos and other times we get super fun candids of you just playing and being yourselves. These so often end up being some of my favorite photos from the session. They capture this busy season of life so perfectly with YOU in it.
So in the midst of these busy chaotic days I hope you prioritize family photos because you SO DESERVE to have these memories documented. You and your spouse are the CENTER of your kids world right now. You are their favorite person. We know we love them SO MUCH. But man, they sure love us a lot in return 🥰.
Interested in doing family photos?! Yesss!! Me too! I’d love to chat with you and get something on the calendar for this summer! 🤗📷🙌🏻 Because if you’re anything like me, if it’s on the google calendar it will ACTUALLY happen! 🤣🙋🏻♀️

Winter days are over but we can’t say we didn’t have fun. We fell so many times that half the people pictured here are never going back.
Nonna mi raccontava, con i suoi confusi ricordi di bambina, che quando arrivarono gli americani cominciò a circolare la cioccolata. E il cibo in scatola.
Chissà quali meraviglie dovevano sembrare agli occhi di chi aveva patito la fame!
Nonna non c'è più da molti anni e nessuno può più raccontarmi, con voce diretta e ferma, quello che accadeva sotto i bombardamenti. Si sa che la memoria è pietra miliare della cultura del "non più". Si sa che è giusto, per milioni di ragioni, ricordare.
Eppure, sappiamo anche, che di genocidi, più o meno famosi, guerre e devastazioni in nome di questo o quel principio è piena la storia. Fino all'altro ieri.
E allora mi vien da dire di ricominciare dalle basi.
Coi pregiudizi, ad esempio. Cosa sono se non dei giudizi dati prima di conoscere una determinata cosa o persona?
Parlaci, prima. Conoscila.
Magari ti stupisci e capisci che, infondo, non siete così diversi.
Oppure sì e avevi ragione. Ma almeno potrai dire con cognizione di causa perché non ti piace.
I perché sono importanti.
Farsi le domande giuste lo è ancora di più. Perché una vita senza confronto, chiusi nelle proprie sicurezze e con la convinzione di essere migliori, è una vita persa.
E poi, magari, vi svegliate una mattina e avete voglia di invadere la Polonia...
We found green grass and tulips and this is how jazzed we felt about it!
I cannot wait to gush about how wonderful this pair is. More to come!🌷❤️🌿

И мы опять играем временами
в больших амфитеатрах одиночеств,
и те же фонари горят над нами,

So I wanted to do a little “introduction” on here! ❤️ Some of you are new followers, some have followed along for a while, and some of you know me IRL but I always love when I see people do this because it’s fun to know more about who you follow! ✨ I’m Ashley, I just turned 28 and the obvious thing you can tell about me from a glance at my page is that I have like, a lot of kids 😂 4 to be exact. I was born in California, have also lived in AZ, but Seattle, WA is home! 🌲I have 11 tattoos and tbh I probably regret getting a couple of them, but this one on my hand is one I’ve never regretted and always loved ⭐️ I also love baking, and I’m a huge foodie so that’s why food content is a lot of what you’ll see on my page. I also love fashion, make up and skin care! Even though I really enjoy sharing products I love with you guys, just know that I turn down a lot of opportunities with brands if they are not products I believe in, or products that my family and I wouldn’t actually use ourselves. ❤️ I love Instagram and all the friendships I’ve made on here! And even though I like to share the mostly positive aspects of my life on here, I’m a real person and also have my own struggles. I definitely suffer from a couple different forms of anxiety and I think it mostly manifested after becoming a mother. If you ever have a question or comment for me, send me a message! I usually do my best to respond to all my DMs. ❤️ My husband and I met in high school, and have known each other for 14 years, and have been married for 8 years 👨❤️💋👨 I love to incorporate fun fabrics and floral prints into what I wear, and lately I’ve been super into polka dots as well. 💃🏼 I think my least favorite chore to do is the dishes, so honestly you’ll very rarely ever find an empty kitchen sink in our house 😂😅 anyways thanks for following along guys! I truly appreciate all the support on this little app ❤️✨

I love that black and white evokes so much emotion and makes the picture feel more timeless, but I also love that in color you can see the redness in the baby’s feet from their thin fragile skin and their blood circulation still maturing.
I also love being able to see the tiny skin flakes, it’s those details that I love remembering about my own baby that I quickly forget. Because I love those details so much, I don’t over edit baby skin and want it to beautifully portray baby as s/he truly is 5-10 days post birth.
It’s so fun for me to see the difference in editing styles between photographers because none is “right” or “wrong”, it’s just all based on preferences and styles of photography and editing. That’s what sets us all apart!
Now we just need to figure out how to bottle up that newborn smell 🥺.
Which edit do you prefer? B&W or color? Tell me below!
I can officially say Theron's work schedule will change in one week! Praise the Lord🙌🏻 (that overnight shift was killing us both)
He's taking a new job that not only is better for our family, but coincides with his goal to be a marriage and family therapist. And it's closer to home! So less time commuting and more time for family dinner. God is so good, you guys 🙏🏻
