It’s Monday! There’s a new post on the blog today. Mother-in-law jokes are so common because there are so many challenges to them. I want to do all I can to make sure I’m not on the bad mother-in-law list! Today, I’m sharing the Dos and Don’ts of Mother-in-Lawhood. Is that a word? I’m not sure, but I’m going to use it. Happy Reading!⠀ #motherinlaw #soninlaw #lifeisgrand #emptynester #emptynestliving #thefutureisfemale #girlfriendsandgreymatter ⠀ ⠀ https://buff.ly/2XlKbJH

Only recently have I learned to open up, take feedback, admit mistakes and pivot when necessary. Changing when needed as life’s curves came at me has made all the difference in my quality of life and relationships. #lifeisgrand #fathersday
HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all those BLENDED FAMILIES out there. Sometimes the man you dream of for your kids ends up not being their biological father. Sometimes life adds depth and texture to our lives that we never dreamed possible. I am honored, thrilled, and incredibly grateful to celebrate @paulpettitbms as a father of 5️⃣ boys on our first married Father’s Day! It is a dream come true for me that I can present this man as a role model of modern masculinity. Thank you @paulpettitbms for your honesty, bravery, transparency, and most of all, for your open-hearted acceptance of my biological sons as your own. I am profoundly blessed.
These 2 guys are so much alike sometimes it’s scary haha .. they are both amazing fathers that are leaving a legacy to their kids and grandkids of what it looks like to love your family unconditionally and live a Godly life! Today I am grateful for these guys to be in my life and the lives of my kids and grandkids!
Happy Father's Day! How are you celebrating today? . . . . . . #lifeisgrand #grandlivingofcrystalfalls #crystalfalls #hillcountry #liveloveleander #nwaustin #lovewhereyoulive #n2publishing #leander #texas #512 #hillcountryliving #openspaces
Self Doubt. . . ~ Something I always struggled with and know it has a lot to do with how I grew up. . . ~ I listen to a lot of SoundCloud’s/Podcasts about self-development and one, was a woman who was speaking about self-motivation. She said that sometimes too little or even too much attention to your children can leave a negative impact in your child’s life. . . ~ My take away from what she said was, don’t tell your children “You’re awesome,” or “You’re amazing,” but instead tell them early on in life, “Wow, you’re such a hardworker!” . . ~ Sometimes saying their awesome and amazing doesn’t really tell them why or how they are so awesome. If you say they are such a hardworker, they’re going to grow up hustling HARD! Instead of walking around just thinking their the best thing in this planet just because ...? Well, that kid is probably going to be a little bungholio when they’re older haha. . . ~ I was raised my early years by my Dad then later moved in with my relatives my teen years. And after I have moved, worked many jobs and met so many different types of life . . . Is when I learned how it important it is to surround yourself with not just love, but super motivated individuals. . . ~ You are who you surround yourself with and I have figured out who I want next to me in this life. Sometimes that even means to distant yourself to people in your circle who are toxic. . . ~ I finally and truly believe in myself.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads, the single Mother’s who do both and to the Step-Dad’s who have courageously stepped up to be Dad’s to children who’s real fathers have chosen to abandon them. This Stepdad right here^ has done that and I know personally that it takes a special breed to be all in as I was lucky enough to have been raised by a great Stepdad. And it’s been a beautiful journey to see it from a mother’s perspective this time. #futurehusband Casey, you have been an amazing Dad to my child, a Dad she desperately needed and deserves. You were built for this parenting gig babes ! Thank you for helping me raise my little nugget and for being there for the both of us during the hardest of times. You truly are one of a kind. And to the people who’s Dad’s are no longer with us - I see you, I’m one of you and I feel your pain. Raising my coffee cup to my Dad with the sun in my face remembering the good times. #fathersday #happyfathersday #stepdad #stepdadsarethebest #hesoneofakind #specialman #thebest #family #weekendmood #toronto #ripdad #torontolife #mom #momlife #torontoigers #sundayvibes #sundaymorning #loveletter #thankyou #lovehim #iloveyou #luckytohaveyou #bestdad #bestdadever #dadappreciationpost #lifeisgrand #happylife #blessed

Outfit repeater // seriously one of my favorite outfits that will be on repeat all summer long☀️ I’ll switch out the high tops with sandals to make it breezy for summer. If you love an outfit in another season, just switch out pieces of it to wear it all year round 🙌🏼 anyone else an outfit repeater? 🙋🏼♀️
Words cannot begin to describe how I feel after last night...but I’ll try!! Ecstatic, grateful, proud, honoured, excited and on and on I could go! I didn’t think when I woke up Saturday morning I would complete my achievement medal and receive an honours pass and then finish the amazing day off by receiving a nomination for the Bronze Achiever of the year and to attend the prestigious Aurora Awards for excellence in November!!! Thank you Rachel for making the pattern stick, and thank you to the gorgeous Courtney for making all the lessons happen, and last but not least, Gino for reminding me how deeply in love I am with Ballroom dancing 🥰🥰 #ballroomdance #auroraawards #marshereboronia #marshere #marshereforever #dancing #passion #oneofmylovesofmylife #sogoodtobehome #sograteful #soblessed #lifeisgrand
