I hope everyone had a great weekend. I drove home for Easter with my family and a belated birthday celebration with some friends, and really just took the weekend away as an excuse to take a break from everything – social media, emails, or even opening my laptop. I often find the idea of not looking at emails or social media as overwhelming since it means more to sort through at a later date, but sometimes just allowing yourself to live in the moment is best.
I’m a bit late (and a bit behind) on the April Love challenge, but this isn’t about perfection, it’s about connection, community and self love. Sometimes self love means skipping a day or two, taking it easy, and just going with what feels right; that’s what I did.
Monday 4/10 – Favorite Book
Tuesday 4/11 – My Smile
My parents came up for my birthday weekend. We went to see Beauty & the Beast (OMG so good!!), enjoyed homemade cupcakes (DELICIOUS!), and a few very delicious meals out to eat. I’m so grateful they made the trip up here to spoil me with gifts, good food and company for my 30th! These smiles are part from a fun weekend and part laughing as I couldn’t get the timer on my DSLR camera to work. Oops…more to learn! #AprilLove2017
Wednesday 4/12 – Black & White
I absolutely love today’s #glowgoodchallenge because it can be so difficult to focus on the things we LOVE about ourselves when we are in this world of social media, comparison, and never feeling good enough. So what do I love about myself? 1️⃣ My strength. I don’t just mean physically, I mean mentally, too! 2️⃣ I work hard. If there is something that I believe in, I know how to hustle. 3️⃣ Willingness to learn. I love to keep learning and growing as a person. In this past year, I’ve read a bunch of books, taken some courses, and started meditating. 👍🏻 #giveaway #healthyglowco #AprilLove2017 @fitfoodiefinds @ambitiouskitchen @healthyglow.co || #tiubikiniseries #tiugrandhaven #tiumichigan
Thursday 4/13 – 10 Years Ago
If you told me 10 years ago that I would someday be deep in the world of health, fitness and personal development, I can’t say I would have believed you. It’s been a journey to get where I am and there’s definitely still a journey ahead of me but man, I am so grateful that I took those first steps. 👣 And I’ve totally become the girl who is always toting around her bottle of water like it’s attached to her hip. 💦 #glowgoodchallenge #giveaway @healthyglow.co || #AprilLove2017
Friday 4/14 – Air
It feels nice to take a break, doesn’t it?
Saturday 4/15 – I Wish…

A little time to rest, recharge, and breathe.
