Goin’ naan-stop!!! •
Also naan rhymes with Kahan (probably) so I played @noahkahanmusic during the creation of this nah-an. •
This is a @halfbakedharvest naan recipe. Served with a lil garlic butter & hummus. Might even try some chocolate-ness later.
Looks pretty good, tastes great, but this was a toughie for me. Effort was there, execution can be improved.
1. Pretty sure I killed some of my yeast in the beginning (rip) with hot water rather than warm water
2. DEFS need to sift my flour because I definitely under-measured big time.
3. Didn’t have access to a proper pan, it got V smokey in the apt @smokeythebear — burned a few.
4. & probs need to roll them out a little thinner. •
OVERALL great learnings for next time & a fantastic Sunday so far. Gonna hit a walk & a movie. •

While I've volunteered before, this is the first election I have started donating to support candidates outside of my district and state to support opponents to some of the worst GOP public officials in our country. I don't have a lot of money, but I believe we're in trouble.

One more weekend day is a good reason to smile☀️😊! #ad I'm so excited to partner with @LOFT (along with a bunch of other rad and inspiring artists and activists💪⚡) and share some thoughts on finding happiness amidst the crazy. Of course it's not always easy, but I do have some simple go-to smile-inducers: dancing✔️ dog✔️ garden✔️ friends✔️ (in no particular order!)💃🐕🌻👩🏼🤝👩🏻
On 2.20.20 we'll be celebrating the first-ever LOFTimist day! So how do I define a LOFTimist? I think it's someone who stays hopeful, even when things might not feel so great, because they're pretty sure that hope is contagious and motivating and they want to cultivate that feeling. 🌈✨ Share what makes you a #LOFTimist by using the hashtag!✨And thank you to @leigh.ann.cobb.photo for this sweet shot of me in my studio! #LOFTimist#callingallloftimists#sunnyside#alwaysbedancing#dogsmakelifebetter#glasshalffull#sponsored

Had one of the hardest travel days yesterday, the air went out in our car and since no one can fix a bmw in key west we had to take it to Ft. Lauderdale, which is 4 hours north of us. (So if you don’t know the keys are pretty much always hot, we did get lucky and had it over cast a lot of the way, but then starting raining in Miami so we had to roll up the windows a lot) .... so imagine Rich, Maddox, myself and our boxer Buster In our car driving up to drop off our car in Lauderdale with no ac and then driving almost an hour back to Miami airport to catch our 5 1/2 hour flight to Vegas.... needless to say we were all a little cranky during this process.... but thank the Lord it’s over with, we made it here safe and sound and the ac is getting fixed! One of the major disadvantages to living on a island is not having things you take for granted in a normal city.... I mean not one person can fix a German car?! So annoying... anyways very grateful for this nice relaxing Sunday with zero travel and now on our way to our favorite sushi place here in #vegas Update , eye infection still here but almost gone 🤣🤓😜 #grateful#glasshalffull#travleingwithatoddler#travelingwithadog#handsfull#wemadeit
Don't be afraid to ask yourself, now what?
We grow up with this checklist of things we want in life - from the degrees, career, relationships, family, lifestyle, and who we want to be.
Having that vision can help get you there as you work towards it, building the habits and work ethic along the way.
I also want to say, stop holding that list so tightly because you'll tie your happiness to each of those items, then you may get them all and realize you don't feel how you wanted to feel.
It's about aligning your values and who you are with a vision, knowing that it may change along the way.
You'll end up places you never planned for. Go down roads that sometimes lead places, other times they don't. You may get what you want and decide you want something else now. You've evolved.
I say this as I reflect on getting to this place and now I want something else. The person I've become desires different things than what I was working towards in my 20s. It's hard to stand up to yourself and admit life as you know it, is not for you anymore. It's necessary though.
Be brave in digging into what this means to you. You don't have to keep doing something just because it works or it's what you think you want. That's how people stay stuck. Don't stay here. Get up and allow your skin to shed. There is joy along the way, more than you could know.
— How do you see your world? —
Long dark days OR Warm cosy nights days
Tireless Hours of working OR full days spent doing things I love.
Cold rain and wind OR hydrating weather for the world making me appreciate the sun when it shows!
Sore body OR a chance to work myself with new skills challenging and growing physically.
Expensive city OR living in a place filled with countless opportunities and things to try and explore.
A hard life OR a life filled with wonderful people, moments and opportunities.
In life there are always two ways of looking at things. We can see the good or the bad. It’s the classic glass half full or empty.
If I were to give you that glass what would you see?
In the past I would always tend to be skeptical, edging towards the negatives so I’m never disappointed. Never underachieving or expecting things I don’t get.
But I found myself scared to accept opportunities. Scared to welcome kindness and good into my life. Scared to actually see the wonderful things I have incase they get taken away.
Don’t live in this fear. Don’t push away beautiful memories or happiness out of fear.
Accept the love and see the silver lining. Because every cloud has one. And often it’s more the a silver lining. It’s a huge ray of sunshine, we just don’t know it yet.
Welcoming in the sunshine that @maracimatoribus. She’s a beautiful person with a beautiful soul.
Tag someone you love or share those happy moments with.
Happy Tuesday everyone! ☀️ 🌞 💐
8 weeks on from the fires, and let's all take a moment to appreciate my pretty bed!!
It's so comfy and cosy, I have lots of pillows and I even have my gorgeous teddies that were evacuated and saved!
It's so nice to have my own space to stretch and relax
(Not to mention it's also a great spot for a movie night😍)
I'm so thankful for what I have and all the people who are supporting my family and I, thankyou
Love you lots xxx
WHAT CAN YOU APPRECIATE MORE?🤔 Whatever has happened to you in the past will now be in your sub conscious programming and if you spend a minute or 2 a night writing what you appreciate🗒, whilst you are sleeping 🛌your brain will start reprogramming your sub-conscious to look for the good.
When you wake up you will wake up with a more positive attitude🤩. Remember you brain is not fixed it is malleable if you have always been a glass half empty person you can change this to being a half glass full 🥛type of person with some commitment to change
1/4... A lot of people tend to feel the mountains calling them... For me it's the ocean (that's why the whales came first), but I get it.
It's big nature. It's a reminder of vulnerability. It's a deep breath of something complete and humbling - detached and yet fully a part of you.
This is 1 of a series of 4 Canadian mountainscapes that I made recently.
Have you ever been to Cascade Mountain in the #Banff? That's what inspired this piece. 🇨🇦🏞️
What mountain calls you?

What do you do when your weekend trip to see dear friends and their new babies (that you are dyyyying to cuddle) gets side railed because one of your kids wakes up with a fever, and then pukes later? Especially when that sick kid seems fine the rest of the day? Well, you console yourselves with a good homemade steak dinner. Or, at least, that’s what we do! And to be fair, I worked really hard on this meal... I opened, and poured, the wine! #changeofplans#glasshalffull#ofwine#myhusbandisagoodcook#ineedtoholdthosebabies
I don’t know about you but I really struggle. I am usually pretty pessimistic, when I realize these faults I try really hard to become an optimists. But really I should be a psalmist! Constantly over flowing with Gods goodness in my life. I’ve had this picture for ages in hope to make a similar one to hang one day. I providentially came across it today and needed it’s heavy reminder, maybe you do too. 💙

Post 462 Disappointment
I’m up this Sunday morning with coffee. I’m headed home today after a week in California.
I’m ready to go home.
To get back into the grind, the routine that is my life.
Those of us in the Fitness Family hold ourselves to very high standards. We push ourselves and relish new challenges, obstacles and hurdles. We work hard each and everyday for the win.
Disappointment is inevitable.
We will always be disappointed in ourselves and in others.
We set high personal standards.
Disappointment is inevitable.
When we let ourselves down or we feel disappointment in others, we just have to pick ourselves up and move on.
It’s just that simple.
Life is a complicated, messy thing. It’s full of let downs, missed opportunities and second chances. All we can do is make the most of each and everyday. Try to see the beauty when times are bleak. Be grateful for each and every breath and understand that disappointment is a part of the experience.
We just intuitively understand that we can never quit even when disappointment rains down upon us.

A fun and very cute Wine/Valentines theme! Good times making this set! 🍷❤️
K, you know when you're 10 hours in to a piece and you realize you probably used the wrong thread? What's your go to response? A. Power through; don't look back, it's too late for them 🙈 B. Tear everything out in a fit of righteous rage 🤬 C. Drop to your knees and shake your fists at the sky screaming "WHYYYYYYYY?!!" over and over until your neighbors call the police 🚨Good thing is I should be able to post bail and be back at it by the weekend! #glasshalffull
It’s moments like these that are so unbelievably special. The older our little ones get the less frequent these moments happen. It’s so easy with my busy life to get caught up in doing chores while he sleeps and not making the most of him napping on me. I haven’t had a napping cuddle like this in a while and despite having a list of jobs as long as my arm I couldn’t care less. I am going to make the most of this lazy Sunday snuggle because you never know when the last one will be. They grow so fast.
What are you doing this stormy Sunday afternoon?
