What’s your Friday morning looking like?
#sponsored I’m taking a few minutes to myself to relax and cozy up on this cold morning with a book, some blankets and my @lacolombecoffee. ☕️ I may just stay here until spring! 🌱 #cozywithcolombe
The politicians aren’t representative of America.... the many many great everyday people who live here do 🇺🇸. Lt James McCue landed at Normandy and earned 5 battle stars great to see complete strangers make sure his contributions didn’t go unnoticed #greatestgeneration#america#wwii#massachusetts
Silence is golden........
Unless you have kids.
Then silence is just suspicious 🤔 .
This time they didn’t get up to to much trouble. Just playing Nintendo and having a few pieces of candy. Can’t say I blame them but, it was my secret stash of chocolate 🍫. Now, I need to find a new hiding spot 🤪.
Anyone else hide candy? I have a candy obsession but, I keep it in check for the most part 🤫🤭. What’s your favorite?
The past 8 months of life have been some of the most challenging i’ve had in my 36 years. If you had told me when i came to Mass that i would face a quick downfall of my grandfathers dementia, and that his death would come quickly after. (His hand and heart pictured) My Nana’s benign skin cancer would spread through her cheek under her eye and require massive radiation therapy and her confidence and mood shaken so much. My dad would have a triple bypass and have to make a few extra kind of scary hospital stays along the way. That I would be separate from my partner and friends and alone most days, and i would have to see more friends die from afar from unforeseen and terrible circumstances, and i would see friends dealing with depression, addiction, and loneliness but not able to shoot over and bring a cup of coffee and a smile to them. If you had told me these things, i don't honestly know if i would have had the strength to make it.
What started as an at most 3 month stay has become just shy of a year in a place I’ve not spent more than a month or so in since i was 9 years old. All told though, i don’t think i would have changed a thing within my control. I’m blessed and lucky to be able to be here at times of hardship within my little family. My family has always been kind of small. An only child of an only child with no one really near my age. And in the past 5 years it has gotten even smaller. Which in a sense, just makes the love we have for one another even more intense. Things will feel stronger and heavier. And i am lucky to have that.
At the end of next week, i will be making the trip back home. My time here has come to an end. I don’t know for how long, and i don’t even have an idea for sure of what plans i will have to make for more time here in the coming months and years. There’s still a lot to figure out. But I’m thankful. For the lessons and the hardships and for the small family proper and larger family of friends, brothers, sisters and comrades all over. Y’all are truly my favorites. And i can’t wait to see all your faces as soon as time and space allow. Mourn for the past and fight like hell for the future. #keepgoing
Sabe quando você tem alguém que te apoia? Sabe quando você tem alguém sempre pronta a embarcar numa aventura qualquer? Sabe aquela pessoa que é com quem você conta sempre? Você é assim, eu tenho você na vida integralmente. Todos os dias ao acordar e ao me deitar. Sei que posso te contar minhas dores a aflições. Sei que posso contar com você pra qualquer plano doido que eu tenha. E eu acho isso tudo maravilhoso. Pra mim você sempre será minha eterna namorada. Apesar de hoje em dia ocupar um cargo muito mais relevante que esse. Você é minha esposa. Te amo demais e nunca na sua vida duvide disso. Love you so much! Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️😍🎁
Quality of life always starts with balance. Work hard but still make time to enjoy life’s experiences. I work hard so I can eat what I want. Every true reward requires some kind of commitment. #fitguys#fitfam#alexwilright
Newly signed DB Al-Louis Jean breaks down why he signed with the Pirates and some of the aspects of his game that he'll be bringing to our secondary in the latest edition of our player spotlight series.
São Tiago nos exorta: “orai uns pelos outros para serdes curados. A oração do justo tem grande eficácia.” Em julho 2017 estive em missão nos Estados Unidos e me reuni com o povo brasileiro que lá reside. Quantas bênçãos, quanta intercessão. #tbt

Happy Valentines day to all those who are working on themselves, loving themselves and learning to love themselves!
I can't stress enough how important self love and acceptance is!
There is absolutely nothing wrong with being single, see it as a blessing, a chance to get to know YOU and what YOU want out of life ❤️

👶🏽♥️VALENTINE SURPRISE!!♥️👶🏽 Baby Mandarà coming in early September!! We are sooo stoked (& a bit surprised ourselves 😆) about our new addition to the family! Ready or not...here we goooooo!!!! 💙💝 #happyvalentinesday#valentinesbaby
You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again
Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again
Here’s to a man that started drinking coffee because he knew I liked it so much, vacuums the house every day because 1. He’s psycho 2. He knows I hate it. A man that lets me follow my dreams and doesn’t get in my way, doesn’t complain (too much) when he comes home to 10 @amazon boxes at the front door every day 😊 and is always down for all - if not most - of my wild unfathomable ideas like moving the house furniture around once a month. Thanks for lighting my incense before I get home, making me coffee every morning to get me out of bed, and being the ONLY one in this house who will ever shovel the god awful substance humans call snow. I love you and appreciate you forever + always 💕✨ #happyvalentinesday
In honor of Valentines Day I thought I would share my sweet tribe. These are the people I get to love on everyday.♥️ .
My hubby is a huge part of all the projects I share on here and my blog. He is always willing to help me with my crazy design ideas. And my sweet doodle Cooper is always along for the ride 🐶
I hope you all get to love on your tribes today! Happy Valentines Day friends! 💕
When does Hibernation start? Because... I can commit 100% to that! Or my other option is to fly to “Saint Somewhere” as Jimmy Buffett sings.
Okay, reality just hit and that’s not a real option today but, a girl can dream.
If you could travel anywhere right now. Where would you go?
And Happy Valentine’s Day to you all.
Hugs and squishes ~Julie
I love this crooked chimney but I also love my crazy kiddos. So I've gotta come up with 15 more reasons why they have my heart all squished in a ball to write on this garland. It's not quite as hard as they make it seem sometimes tho 😏
Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Wednesday! 💘What are your Valentine plans tomorrow? We’ll be mostly doing the normal stuff around here tomorrow, just wearing more red and pink of course! We’ll have a nice, quiet, romantical dinner at home (with a 1 year old😝). I wouldn’t have it any other way! 💝 Finn made a special little valentine for his daddy tonight, all the sweets! I hope you day will be filled with with all the wonderful feels and your people (and candy) 🥰💝😍💘
Naturally I’m a neutral girl through and through, with maybe an earth tone thrown in there when I’m feeling adventurous but this month always has me pulling out the reds and pinks. In fact, I have one pink sweater that I try to wear religiously on Valentine’s Day 💕😌because it’s the only pink thing I own 🙆🏻♀️. On an even worse noted, I own absolutely nothing fully purple, oops. Any stylish readers out there have advice for spicing up your wardrobe with color? If so I’d love to hear it below #newengland

The only thing I miss in the left photo is my boobs.
I honestly don’t know what to say. My face says it all. I’ve never been more happy and healthy in my LIFE!
On the left, I was balling my eyes out because I hated my body. The place I was at in that photo was dark (yes it was dark out, but mentally it was dark too lol). I was depressed and lost.
I took this picture in hopes to getting my shit together. I didn’t. I had no idea how and didn’t know what to do besides make myself throw up, take laxatives and starve.
My journey lead me to learning. I learned so much. Nutrition, fitness, self development, love, worth, happiness, relationships.
Bro, I’m speechless.
I wanted to put words on the photos describing what made the difference, but I honestly cannot pin point it to one thing.
Today I am:
🏆Prepping for a bikini competition
💧Drinking a gallon + in water
💛Happily in love with @bryanfranciosi
🍩Eating yummy foods
🍊Taking my vitamins
🧠Mentally in an amazing spot
🥰Loving my body and mind
💭Following my dreams
💪🏽 THRIVING FOR SUCCESS
Like shit dude, I’m so happy.

#ad We recently discovered @abbyandfinn.co and their awesome subscription boxes! I don’t have to run out for diapers anymore and now I have the convenience of receiving a box of diapers and wipes on my doorstep every month. The diapers are soft and we haven’t had any leaks and the wipes are gentle on sensitive skin. They have fun diaper patterns to choose from too. This one is Addie’s favorite! #abbyandfin#diaperaday#betterdiaperbetterworld

You can’t imagine how I miss them...💔😫
Я держала это в секрете очень долго... но некоторые уже знают, кто-то догадался, а кто- нет, тот уже спросил в Директ или у знакомых... где дети?
Уля и Мирослав чуть меньше месяца в России с моими родителями. У меня было очень много вопросов, проблем и непонимания с местными американскими педиатрами...и я решилась, отправить их в Нижний, чтобы их посмотрели наши-русские доктора...
Сейчас, по истечении небольшого срока, я вижу ОГРОМНЕЙШИЙ прогресс у своих малышей! Как много упустили местные американские врачи и как вовремя мы занялись этим вопросом в России.
Спасибо русской медицине, кто бы и что бы про неё не говорил, моих детей она буквально спасла !!
К сожалению я не могу сейчас уехать на несколько месяцев чтобы быть с ними, но вопрос здоровья был важнее.
И давайте без лишних расспросов пожалуйста⠀
Looks like we’ll have a few snowy days ahead of us ❄️⛄️! Honestly I feel like @mattcraig15 and I have gotten so lucky with this mild winter; as we start to head into the final few weeks of our home renovation 👷🏻♀️❤️. All and all so looking forward to next year when we can experience a snow day in our little home, but until then let the demo videos continue 🙌🏼🏠. http://liketk.it/2zS9C #newengland
Atravessei mares escuros e profundos com corais lindos e coloridos,
montanhas íngremes, colhendo deliciosos frutos e com visao panorâmica do Vale ,
conheci vários dialetos e línguas
em diferentes partes do mundo,
Por mais que tentei,
não consegui encontra uma palavra que possa representar o meu sentimento por você,
nem entre os poemas de Shakespeare
ou a sutileza do francês
Ou o calor do amor latino agora se tornou simples o " I love you " Ou " eu te amo "!!!
Eu te quero bem sempre bem meu filho Apolo.
