So no, this is not a pretty or perfectly staged photo... you probably won’t find those here. That’s because this is my reality! A constant balance between school, work, motherhood, and trying to hold on to my sense of self with crafts and other fun dispersed throughout. For now, this is where my new oils are going to sit and wait for me to make rollers and remind me to start to explore their benefits. Newest to the family: joy, peace and calming II, white Angelica, snifflease for my daughter + free reward spearmint and a back up Lemon, that was a bonus from YL, annnnd another bonus, grapefruit! Someday I will have a beautiful display, but today... I will get by knowing this is what I’m working with and I’m making it work! #essentialoils#younglivingessentialoils#wellnesslife#makingitwork#workwithwhatyougot#momlife#studentlife#teacherlife#joy#whiteangelica#peaceandcalming#kidscents#vitalityoils

Happy Monday!! First day back to work in 5 days. Thank you snow days! .
“I promise to be there through every contraction, to stop what I’m doing and come hold you while you squat and push through. I promise to still tell you how sexy you are in those post baby diapers and pads, to hug you when you’re covered in breastmilk and spit up. I promise to pick up all the slack while you recover. To clean the house, do the dishes, play with our oldest. I’ll bring you breakfast in bed and milkshakes when you want them. I promise I’ll always be so proud to call you my wife.” These should have been my husband’s wedding vows because it’s exactly what he’s done the last two weeks. Childbirth is an amazing thing but it’s also painful, messy & there’s a healing process. This man of mine has been there through it all and I couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you for all you do @natejames25 #mancrushforlife#mommyanddaddy#ifyoudidntbuyyourwifepadsareyouevenmarried

Writing stations don’t have to be big, to be big. I used a little tin bucket and put @stepintosecondgrade and @elementaryshenanigans writing prompts from their nonfiction writing unit. I printed them 2 on a page, cut and hole punched, and then used a binder ring to hold them together. I also put writing prompts strips for the students to pick from and glue into their journal. Hopefully this will give my students more ideas on what to write about!
#motivationmonday I just completed my first week of my new workout program. I feel good!! Did I have to modify some moves? Yes! But, that is okay because I know I am stronger this week from daily making time for my health. I am doing this for me. Doing it for the long term. I am not comparing myself with anyone else. .
What’s my point? Making time for you is super important! Doing it for YOU is the only reason to do it! Doing something good for yourself will allow you to be able to do for others. Will there be discomfort? Yes!! You can’t make progress unless you push past your discomfort. .
Our first group is full, but we have another one beginning in February. If this is for you I would love to have you join me!! .
Let’s talk and see if this is what you are looking for to make you BETTER!
