God is so good!! Owning a farmhouse has been our dream for a very long time! He lets you wait on what He has for you so that once you receive it you can’t give anyone else the glory! We have no words to describe how grateful we are to see our boys run around on land that’s their very own! This is a tribute to our forefathers that surely prayed that their defendants would be able to see this day! 🔑🏡🙌🏿❤️😃 #weboughtafarm #newhomeowner #newhome #blackfarmers

I’m so happy that 38 is here!! 🎉🎂🎊🎈Cheers to living as a blessing to be a blessing ❤️❤️❤️. Here’s so overflow! Embracing this new chapter! Love y’all so much!

Have you ever wanted something really bad and once you got it immediately change your mind? 😂🤣🤣🤣. To be fair it was 96 degrees outside.

Summer came late to Seattle but the garden has been thriving! I’m looking forward to planning a fall garden. Seeds that I’m looking forward to starting for fall are; 🌱 carrots 🌱 beets 🌱 green onion 🌱 cabbage 🌱 lettuce 🌱 kale 🌱 green onion 🌱 broccoli 🌱 radish 🌱 peas Leave your gardening questions in the comments 😃

I’ve decided that I want to look back on my timeline to see our experiences and how much my kids have grown, even though this app is going in a different direction. We’ll still be photo sharing over here ❤️❤️❤️. Summer 2022 🌞 in Utah. #summervacation

@sandhollowsp in Utah is simply magical ✨! It truly made for an epic summer experience for our family! Remember to take a break mamas ❤️❤️❤️

Happy birthday 🎂🎉🎈🎊 to the love of my life!!! I can’t believe that I’ve been by your side to celebrate 18 of your birthdays 🥳! You’re the best husband, father, son, brother, cousin, nephew, friend, boss and coach anyone can ask for!! May God grant you with many, many more our king!

Dear mama, by the time you feel like you have a handle on motherhood your kids might be taller than you. Thats totally okay! The truth is that we think we’re raising our kids but they are really teaching us! Being their mama has helped me to become more daring, creative, vocal and strong. You might feel like motherhood is causing you to fall apart but trust the process. You’re getting it all together 💗💗💗 #motherhood #7magicmountains

I often here people say that they don’t have a green thumb. When it comes to gardening I say that you should just start! Try, you just might succeed! If you have failures you’ll learn so many lessons along the way and get better each year! 🪴🪴🪴 #garden

#ZYRTECPartner As a mom that loves the outdoors, I encourage our boys to get outside as much as possible — especially when the weather is nice here in Seattle! @zyrtecallergy makes getting outside and enjoying summer a bit easier by reducing allergy symptoms! It's also the #1 pediatrician-recommended brand for children’s allergies. Do your kiddos have allergies? Mine sometimes get puffy eyes and itchy throats and Children’s ZYRTEC® gets the job done! What’s one thing on your bucket list to do with your kiddos this summer? We've been enjoying being outside every day! Shop ZYRTEC at retailers like Walmart to stay protected from allergies this summer, link in my bio! *Use only as directed #ZYRTEC #childrenszyrtec #allergies #allergyseason #allergiesgotmelike #allergy #ad

This is me pretending that it’s dress season in Seattle 😂🤣! The weather has been in the 50s and low 60s and I never expected to have to still deal with seasonal depression in June. Impromptu phone calls from friends, Zumba, and volunteering at a flower farm that has a huge greenhouse has been lighting up my world! 😃 Here’s to hoping that I get to wear this number at a garden party soon 🧡! How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?? #momstyle


Between the stress of school opening uncertainty, a whole pandemic, financial strain, being quarantined together for almost a year, working with kids at home etc. -- there is enough to rock your marriage boat. We try to make some time to take our eyes off of the present difficulties of 2020 and think about where we'd like to live in the future, what we hope to accomplish for our kids, future businesses we'd like to start and places we'd like to visit. and I quit my full time job during the pandemic (because it was entirely too much with 4 kids at home) and started working part time in addition to blogging. To continue to feed the dreamer in me we always think about things that we can save up for and to feed the planner in him we try to give every dollar a purpose--budgeting spending for me...because you're girl has to spend!


When visiting we recommend staying close to the west entrance! The Midway Geyser basin is where you'd find the beautiful rainbow colored Grand Prismatic Basin. It's close to Grand Teton National Park -- you literally drive from one park straight into another.

So far we've visited 5 National Parks and Grand Teton is my personal favorite!!! MORAN JUNCTION - The best way to see everything at Grand Teton is to drive the 42 mile scenic drive. Close to Moran Junction is also the Cunningham Cabin Historic Site. This little cabin has a small creek and the kids loved playing in the creek and observing the historic carpentry of the cabin.

How to raise anti-racist kids

If you spoke out of prejudice, grabbed your purse when a black man walked by or passive aggressively did not invite your child's black friend to their birthday party admit to them that that action was wrong. We attend a predominantly black church and one of my best friends consistently came with her white family before relocating. Attend a church with a minority pastor, invite a black family over for a barbecue, or attend a ballgame of your child's friend of another ethnicity. I have friends that are white that point out racism and speak up for me and my family.
