Six Lessons I’ve Learned In Six Years of Marriage

A newlywed recently said to me that they are considering a post-nuptial agreement because, “what if we change.” I hate to break it to you, but you’re going to change. Your life is going to change. Your financial situation will change. You will lose things or gain things that will change your life.

My Husband Bought a Coffee Table

Recently, my husband has picked up a really fun hobby of buying and selling mid-century modern furniture. It’s the coolest stuff, and I have been cherry-picking some of the best pieces including a cool coffee table. Then I interviewed Galey…

  • We are officially looking at May 1 for school to resume... so everything stays the same for now. And what a crazy time this is. The whole family is taking a lot of deep breaths while we process our new normal! 🥴

  • Henry is so proud of himself! 🥑There are some amazing distance learning options out there, and @playosmo is just one of the many things that I have found for distance learning during this time. ✏️ We made a minimal investment to have everything we need to make sure we can keep Henry going with letters, numbers, and gross  and fine motor skills! 📚 (Sharing and verbal conflict resolution is on hold for our only child. 🤷🏼‍♀️) Shop ➡️http://liketk.it/2McBE #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKfamily #LTKkids #LTKunder50 #bossbabe #lawyer #lawyerlife #lawyersofinstagram #mompreneur #workingmom #workingmomlife #workingmomma #workingmomstyle #lawyerup #ladylawyer #makeitrainka #businesswoman #businessowner #momboss #mombosslife #duuuval #jaxfl #igerjax #onlyinduval #goaldigger #904 #womensupportingwomen #boss #bosslady
  • Happy Friday! We hope everyone is staying healthy and inside. Just a friendly reminder that while we are working remotely, we can still do everything online that we are able to do normally.

  • Being a “fixer” has always been a part of my core.

Today, I put my sewing skills to good use with my 1990s sewing machine and my 1970s sewing basket (@helenmschott I have your sewing basket) to fix 2020 kicks for Henry.

Sewing is one of the many random skills that I have acquired over the years to make sure that I can help in a pinch. I never want to be useless, so I try to have a skill for every situation. I’m always on the move, learning new things, trying to help where I can. 
I thought for sure that this #coronavirus quarantine would make be feel totally useless because life would come to a halt. But now more than every I’ve had an incredible amount of quality time to put my tools to work with my family and for myself. 
All of that time not spent out and about or commuting has led to time to some for myself. I feel like I’ve been able to really mediate and reflect for the first time in months.  Although life has totally slowed down, I feel more connected than ever to myself, my work, and my family. 
I hope this is the same for you all, but if you’re struggling, share! I would love to connect with someone who needs a fresh prescriptive. 🖤

  • I have many, many thoughts about #coronavirus. I wonder if God is telling us to take a beat, and focus on what matters. {spoiler alert- it’s not things, it’s the moment you’re in and the people you’re with.}⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But taking care of ourselves so we can take care of the people we love emotionally, mentally and physically is a lesson resounding in my head.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Embrace self-care today and always. 🖤⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Imagine going back to work in a few weeks with all of those projects around the house done, to-do list tackled, and the hidden stressors in that stack of paper handled. ✔️
•
There is no time like #coronavirus to catch up on things like cleaning out by inbox, sorting through papers in my house and eliminating the added stress of clutter in my house. ✨

What else can we do during this time?! Comment and share below! 👇🏻
