I’ve noticed some new faces around here lately! Welcome all 👋! For those new to my account, let me re-introduce myself with a few #factsaboutme:
-My name is Heather (last name, Hogrefe, is German, and is pronounced “Hoe-grif”). “Dada” is a family nickname, thus the name of my blog “Love Dada”💁🏼♀️
-Many people are surprised to learn that I’m actually 32 👵 (😂)
-I was born and raised in Florida. I live in Orlando currently, although you’ll notice Miami is like my second home (I’m ALWAYS there!) 🌴
-I’m the oldest of 5 kids, and grew up in a super close-knit family 👨👩👧👧 (and yes, I’m still super close to everyone of course 🤗)
-I have a #furbaby Frenchie whom I ADORE, named Zoey 🐶👆💕
-I went to school to be an RN and am still a licensed RN (but don’t currently practice) 🥼
-I grew up wanting to do something in the fashion industry, and love how this amazing little app has allowed me to do so 💃
-it’s been a few years, but I used to be a #swimwearmodel 🙈, and actually shot for a few legit catalogs and small campaigns 🙈 👙👙

ФУ, КАКАЯ НЕПРИЯТНАЯ😈 ⠀
все мы прекрасно понимаем, что невозможно всегда быть в прекрасном настроении, с улыбкой до ушей и сверкающими глазками🥰⠀ моё настроение может измениться по щелчку пальцев🙌🏻
в один момент та добрая и милая девочка, которая щебетала интересные истории и напевала разные песенки, становится угрюмой, огрызающейся и невыносимой😈
да-да, и не говори, что у тебя ни разу такого не было🙃 ⠀
только для некоторых я постоянно злюка, противная и до ужаса неприятная, но вы этого заслужили, всё не просто так😉 ⠀
мои девочки зачастую говорят мою любимую фразу: «фу, какая ты неприятная»
придумала её я, а говорят её про меня😂 ⠀
мне очень хотелось бы верить, что из близких я никого не задеваю, когда нету настроения, ну я очень стараюсь этого не сделать🤞🏻
но если допустила ошибку, то извинюсь, потому что чувства родных - самое важное❤️
а вот если ты мне чужой, та еще и недолюбливаю я тебя, ну не лезь, а то убьёт😂
ну вот опасно меня трогать, пытаться как-то успокоить или отвлечь🤷🏼♀️
родные уже знают, что мне просто надо побыть с собой, в себе, для себя🙃
та и злюсь то я недолго))))
и вообще накапливать в себе обиду и злость - глупое дело😉 ⠀
ну вот а вы думали, что всё так сказочно?

my progress/ story 🏀 truly blessed ✍🏼 when i first started playing basketball, i was going into the 6th grade & had been training w someone for around 2 weeks, just enough to try & make the team. so tryouts came around probably around summer 2016 ‘ , i went to tryouts but before i got out of the car, me & my mom prayed & asked god to help me have enough skill to get on the team. then, i got out of the car went in & started. yeah, i was nerves but i knew basketball was what i wanted so i was going to strive for it. so i worked my tail of in tryouts & i made it. i wasn’t that good but my coach believed in me, i thank her for that! so that year passed, 2017 ‘ came around i wasn’t all that great, but i was improving as time passed. i kept working, got in w a new trainer went twice a week, & worked hard. 2018 -2019 basketball season came i was starting on varsity, being a leader on & off the court making sure the younger kids understood everything that was happening. at the end of that season i ended up winning all district/all county for my school which was a blessing, because i got something that i’ve been wanting so bad for sooo long. after the school season ended i had tryouts for a very good aau team, which i was nerves but my biggest supporters ( my parents ) made sure i had confidence in my self & told me i was going to do fine. i finally found out i made the aau team ( i couldn’t be any happier w the girls i’m playing w now! ) then summer 2019 ‘ came i had tryouts for my high school team, which i was nerves because there was going to be much girls older than me, i made the team & looking forward to this coming season w these girls. but anyways the moral of the story is ... i’ve only been playing basketball for 3 years & i have progressed so much. i wouldn’t be able to be in the place i am without ( @sassy_buchanan , @fredrick.sutton.14 & @ryanbuchanan1980 ) & most importantly god, i’m super blessed for what god has done for me, i’m not perfect. i make mistakes, that’s the only way i’m going to learn from my mistakes. grind doesn’t stop now 💙 #explore#explorepage#blessed#mystory
“When I went into 2016, I thought I’d call myself an Olympian and move on. You know, I didn’t really understand how I was going to get hooked and get addicted to this being a lifestyle and a career for the long-term.”
I recently spoke to @insidehook about how it is that I got to where I am, what my expectations were, and how I ended up choosing to pursue running over modeling back in high school and how that decision ended up changing everything.
“I really want to make the team again in 2020. That’s never a given, but I feel like I’m at the point now where I can that’s kind of too small a goal now. My next goal is to be in the running to get a medal at the Olympic games. I don’t want to just go and check the box and say I ran there. I want to compete against the best of the best. So that really makes me put on a brave face and dig deep on days where I need to push myself just a little extra.”

“Mental health is really important to me. I’ve watched myself and a lot of my friends struggle with anxiety around school and what’s going on in the world. When I read that marijuana can make people hella paranoid or worsen anxiety, I realized it was something I should be careful with.”⠀
While many people think of weed as a way to #winddown, some users report anxiety and paranoia as side effects. In fact, in some cases regular cannabis use has been linked to an increase of social anxiety disorder. While results vary for everyone, if anxiety is an issue for you, you may want to slow your roll.⠀

Serving you ALL of the sassiness that is my face! Anyone else struggle with having a naturally sassy demeanor🙋🏾♀️💁🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️
BUT on a serious note- I will be speaking tomorrow night at 7pm at 10624 Metromont Pkwy Charlotte NC 28269 with an awesome ministry called @icutalks .
I’m humbled, excited, nervous...mostly nervous. But also so very extremely thankful for the journey of a life that I get to live. I will be pouring out my heart and speaking on something so real, so life changing, and honestly so what makes me- well. ME!
It would bring me so much joy to see you there! 😁😁😁
And these are the faces I will be making at you if you don’t come! Lol. But for realz- if you can’t make it, would you just say a prayer for me?
Day 7, Part 1 - We all had plans to go on a boat and visit the neighbouring island for most the day, however the roughness of the sea meant we couldn't go. On the plus side it's a glorious day. #brazil🇧🇷 #brasil🇧🇷 #experiences#travelblog#myjourney#mystory#visioncamp4

Now I understand what exercising can do for mental health. I had to take a week off from boxing -- and the past week seemed to have more downs than ups. I was so filled with anxiety and depression, my body felt like it was going to explode.
That's when it did. I had an anxiety attack for the first time in seven months.
Anxiety attacks are never a good time -- but even more so when you're around a bunch of people who are seeing this side of you for the first time.
I felt scared, and even more so I felt ashamed. I was around some new friends, and the last thing I wanted to do was scare them away. Mental illness is never an easy topic to discuss. Many people don't know what it truly means.
The best way I can explain it is that my body and mind had enough. I needed a way out. Fight, flight or freeze.
I went to hide in the bathroom, my best friend brought me water and was right at my side when I needed her. I was succumbed to the old habits of picking my skin and hitting my head off the wall. It was comfort. It's what I know.
The days since have been easier. I've been happy again and living my best life. Needless to say, I can't wait to get back to training at MTC. My body, mind and soul need it.
Словно побывав в деревне, так тепло и легко на Душе 🙃
Словно стала другим Человеком, потому что нашла в себе силы поверить в себя и себе.
Жизнь так мимолётна, давайте не будем ничего ждать 🖤
А возьмём и поблагодарим, обнимем, позвоним, будем рядом, прям здесь и сейчас,
Хочется сделать каждый миг неповторимым ✊
