💔If I gave my kids a teeny, tiny bit of antifreeze everyday, would that be ok? I used to. 💔What if I let them drink just a smidge of a Neurotoxin each day? They did. 💔What if let them smoke a cigarette just once a day? What if it’s second-hand smoke?
Sometimes they had to multiple times a day. 💔Would it be ok if I let them apply roundup on their hands to sanitize them? We did everytime we left the house. 💔Or what about petroleum (gasoline) for their dry skin? Every winter ❄️ .
.
Oh gosh. Heck no.
.
I’m telling you. Dig deeper.
These ingredients are allowed in the everyday products thousands of us ALL have used, or are using right NOW, as you read this post. ❤️
.
💀Antifreeze = in almost every toothpaste 💀Neurotoxin (Toxic to the brain) = Any food or toothpaste/product with colorants/food dyes. 💀Lighting a candle for just one hour a day = same as breathing in second hand smoke 💨 💀Triclosan = in anything marked Antibacterial. Originally created as a pesticide because it continues to kill for more than 12 hours after applied. 💀Petroleum = derivative of gasoline. 😳
.
.
But it’s little bit each day. No worries.
That’s what the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 basically said.
A little at a time, so it’s fine.
.
Now go google Body Burden. 💀
See what you find. 💔

Now see if YOU have Body Burden. 💔 ❤️If I know anything to be true....I know that whatever you do in small amounts, adds up to big, compounded effects.
Good. Or Bad. ❤️💔
.
All I know is....I stopped buying those things...
And those symptoms of Body Burden eventually left our home. 🙌🏻
.
You don’t need poisons to live.
Just because someone sells it, doesn’t make it safe. ❤️
.
.
👉🏻Statistics are now showing that within the next 5 years, EVERY American will be looking for natural alternatives.
That tells me, we are a generation who wants better!!!! Change is happening. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

A refreshing drink...⁣

Something we've done this cruise is work to find drinks we could enjoy by the pool that didn't have lots of calories from alcohol or sugar. Thankfully, @celebritycruises has some pretty great bartenders willing to help us out. ⁣

To make this drink, Vince, our Retreat bartender, first muddled some lemons and limes in the bottom of a shaker. He then poured a little fresh lime juice over it, added a couple of mint leaves, and then ice. Finally, he shook the mixture, then poured it into a glass before adding diet Sprite to the top. ⁣

What we got was a delicious, refreshing drink that really satisfied on a warm day by the pool. The best part is that it only had a few calories from the lime juice.⁣

We think we'll have another.⁣

This morning we celebrated the unveiling of “El Mago’s Way” a street named after our dear friend Ortelio Cardenas. Thirty-five years ago he founded “El Mago de las Fritas” (el mago = magician) just around the corner from there, an iconic eatery in Miami. They say you haven’t experienced Miami if you don’t eat there. Even President Obama visited it back in 2012 with his entourage of Secret Service Agents! We are very proud of this accomplishment and for the city of West Miami to have considered this opportunity to acknowledge our hardworking friend and his family. The Cardenas Family has dedicated 35 years of their life to welcoming every person that walks through the door as their own, including President Obama and his team, whom I understand loved and ate a few of El Mago’s secret recipe fritas. 🤩This is what a family business is all about and we are overjoyed to have been part of this celebration within a week of Ortelio’s 81st Birthday 🥳 Type in “Connie & Obama at El Mago De Las Fritas” on YouTube to see a clip of President Obama’s visit to this very popular Miami eatery 😊

Today is my daughter Kennedy’s birthday---she's 24 years old! My older daughter, Alex, is 27, so we’ve been living the empty nest life for a few years now. What I know about this time of life is that it’s a chance to renew and refresh in many ways—both personally and on the home front. Updating, renovating and redecorating often happen during this period when we get a breather from our parenting duties, and finally get a chance to sit and relax in our homes. It’s a fabulous time…I can attest to that and so can many of my clients:) Have an empty nest that you would like our expertise in updating? We would love to hear from you.
Happy Birthday, Kennedy 😊

𝗗𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙡 𝗯𝗲𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗳𝘂𝗹 𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗹𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘀? Truth be told, there are days when I don't like what I see in the mirror...no matter how much time I've put into pulling myself together. You, too?⁣
😍⁣
In fact, I think most of us gals struggle to feel comfortable in our own skin. So feeling beautiful in the clothes that sometimes bulge or bind, ride up or slip down or simply don't live up to the hype...well that's a whole other level of discomfort!⁣
😍⁣
But since I have to stand in front of a camera at least a few times a month, I've learned a little about how to feel beautiful in my clothes. I'm sharing those tips in today's blog post at DressedforMyDay.com. I hope you click through the link in my profile and check them out.⁣
😍⁣
Here's why: You are a beautiful, influential woman. You have the potential to change the direction of every conversation, raise the bar in every office meeting, set the tone in every relationship and change the climate of every gathering. Yes, you!⁣
😍⁣
But you're less likely to step up to the plate and make these things happen gracefully and beautifully if you don't feel good about your appearance. Like it or not, appearance speaks. Loudly!⁣
😍⁣
So I hope you'll stop by DressedforMyDay.com for just a few minutes of encouragement, helpful tips and style inspiration. See ya there!⁣
😍⁣

Progress over perfection, the new way I am going to think. Because really what is humanly perfect? Nothing! I drive myself crazy, ⠀
Scrutinizing everything.. looking for...... ⠀

•Wrinkles ⠀
•Dreaded double chin ⠀
•Cellulite⠀
•Crazy Hair ⠀
•no make-up ⠀
•Legs look to fat ⠀

Really the list could keep going, so I decided, 𝑰'𝒎 𝒃𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒖𝒑 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 the idea of "𝑷𝑬𝑹𝑭𝑬𝑪𝑻".... It’s not worth all my energy & time. And truthfully is a distraction, to make me feel inferior & unworthy. ⠀

No, that doesn’t mean...I don’t want to grow old gracefully, and put my best face forward (ha-ha). Self care is important. I love doing my hair, putting on makeup, eating organic foods, drinking my superfood shakes, working out, & dressing up. ⠀
#casualplainjane

It means... I’m going to be unapologetic about posting the imperfect in my life, not second guessing myself, overthinking about who will judge that video/story/post. I’m proud of my journey & how far I’ve come.. this wall I built over the years is being chipped away because, I realize I am fearfully & wonderfully made ~ Psalms 139:14. I’m perfect in Gods eyes ❤️ #thatswhatmattersmost

Anyone else want to be perfectly imperfect??? I’d love to hear from you & journey with you ❤️ #bettertogether #betherealyou #everydaywoman #progressoverperfection #ownyoureveryday #psalm139 #ownyoureveryday #emptynesters #40something #loveyourlife #renewedandrestored #southerncali #ranchomirage #coachellavalley

I asked God to give me a word for last year. He gave me the word growth. Can I tell you that 2019 was one of the hardest years for me. I was challenged mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially.

God used each of the circumstances I went through to grow me and show His faithfulness.

Friend, your toughest struggles right now can turn into some of your biggest blessings. If it’s raining, you are growing. Hang on. God is creating something beautiful.

Are you in a rainy season? ~Lara

My tribe. I’m on the struggle bus over here realizing that my active years of raising two of these humans is drawing to a close. I used to watch movies with empty nesters and think....they were over exaggerating their feelings. Yet here I am, months away from their graduation and I am in shock. I’m not done. I have not taught them so many things. How can I have 2 so close adults?!? #emptynesters #graduation

You know that feeling you get when your favorite song comes on and you’re overwhelmed with happiness and job...yup, that’s what it’s like to witness what this makeup does! It’s soooo much more than makeup! 
What do I do for a living...I build confidence, freedom & self love for a living & it’s AWESOME! #maskcaraeasttexas #adventureawaitsyou #makeyourdreamscometrue #emptynesters #makeupchangeseverything #changinglivesonefaceatatime  #thisis51 #maskcaratexas  #makeupforbeginners

Inside the mind of a 2 wing 1 today 🤪

The 1 in me says, “You aren’t going to be able to get it ALL done so why even start.” The 2 in me says, “You really need to do this because the example will help someone else.” What’s your enneagram?

“The most important work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own home.”⁠⠀
—⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Does this year feel like it’s flying by to anyone else? It can be so hard fitting all your tasks in that family time almost always suffers. Let’s change that!⁠⠀
—⁠⠀
⁠⠀ This weekend, try setting aside an hour of screen-free time. It may be a challenge, but it can still be fun. Here are some things we do as a family when we get together:⁠⠀
• Family game night⁠⠀
• Cook a meal together ⁠⠀
• Go out for ice cream⁠⠀
• Thrift store shopping ⁠⠀
• Impromptu dance parties in the living room (or in some cases, dance offs!)⁠⠀
__⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What does your family do for fun? Let us know if you give any of our activities a try!

🚨 ALERT 🚨!! Today is the end of week one of Barre Blend (5 days) and I have lost 4lbs and can start to see my midsection toning up!! I was worried that this program would not challenge me like the previous one... I am happy to report I was WRONG!!! I am blown away with my results especially since I am totally out of my comfort zone and I often have to stop and correct my form🤪! I can’t wait for the transformations in the weeks to come. Stay tuned, or BETTER yet JOIN ME 💪🏻! #stayathomemom #mompreneur #fitfam #fitmom #frenchiesofinstagram #momofboys #emptynesters #collegemom

After all this time I’ve learned some things. 🙋🏼‍♀️⠀

*I am not everyone’s cup of tea. ⠀

*It’s not my job to convince anyone of my worth, I know my heart. 💖⠀

*Other people and their opinion of me does not have a place in my day to day life.⠀

*Positivity loves company more than misery does so I will spread that like wildflowers. 🌸⠀

I will no longer take to a negative place because I lived there for too long this past year. ⠀

This year I will fill my cup with what makes me happy, what pushes me to be my very best. I will fill it with love, joy, and faith. ⠀

I am relentless.

There are times when you know there is one person who will be able to answer your question the best. You know their answer will be thorough and concise as they are drawing upon their insight, knowledge and experience. 💫

Sometimes it can feel like there is a huge chasm between you and the other person and that the leap to make a connection is just too great. Maybe the person is a political leader or someone prominent, maybe they are your manager or a family member. 💫

Whoever they are just reach out. At worst they can ignore your email or phone call. At best they can respond and enhance your understanding. And remember, through the conversation between you both they are also learning and expanding their awareness. 💫

This guy!

This is Max 💜 He’s a 6 year old Golden Doodle that is basically the best dog on the planet!! He’s kind, crazy, loves winter and the outdoors, snuggles & belly rubs 😍

When the kids moved out he was my empty nest solution and he’s helped us through some dark days and great days! He’s been to the nursing home, a Red Cross evacuation, and tons of quad rides. I matter where he is, he just seems to calm people!! Do you have a pet?? Share your pic below, I’d love to seem them! 💜 #petsofinstagram #petfriday #loveyourdog #goldendoodle #goldendoodlesofinstagram

~Nothing haunts us like a purse we didn’t buy.~ I want to share some great deals going on at Nordstrom Rack now.

I got two really cute, statement purses last week & ❤️ them.
Videos coming soon.

I bought the pink fringe & black with pearl handle purses. I have gotten so many compliments on them.
I used the pink fringe purse 2 days this week & got the most compliments I have ever gotten from a purse.

Which purse is your favorite?

This.🙏⁣

We may not feel like we are glowing currently or thriving. ⁣

We may feel invisible in a suddenly unfamiliar familiar world with an unsettling feeling of “ who the hell am I “ ? Why do I feel like this? What do I do now ? Why am I feeling crazy? ( or is that just me ) 😂. Literally my journey for the last 2 years has been navigating and still navigating ways to feel better, to thrive as I certainly didn’t want to slow down (I’m just getting started as a grown up for goodness sake ) and I hated feeling invisible in my own life. So I’ve been finding new ways to look after me and my mind and body inside and out. ⁣

I can honestly say I’m feeling the BEST I’ve ever felt now. ⁣

Life in your 405060’s is unfamiliar territory and new paths and ways of looking after yourself absolutely need to be explored and finding what works for you. ⁣

But I promise you this. YOU CAN get your glow back and start thriving again and my Saturday #shakeinvisibilityoff series is all about Top Tips for feeling and looking good inside and out, through self love self care and finding your innner sassy again 😏😏😜😜😜 who doesn’t love feeling sassy ?⁣

We are all in this grown up “teenage”phase together my darlings and #yesolderwecan feel and look bloody fabulous again with exciting new life goals and an inner glow you can see from the moon. ❤️❤️⁣

There’s a new way of thinking for me in regard to my choices tonight. The evenings are now decided by the kind of mornings I want to enjoy.😉 During the wine o’clock hour, I can “fast forward the movie” of having a few drinks, to having poor sleep, late evening snacks and waking up sluggish OR I can have this movie play....have a #topochico with lime, skip an extra 500 calories, sleep solid and wake up ready to go. ⚡️My goal is to feel great, be my best and not drag around regret or frustration from my drink choices the night before😉🙌🏼👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 .

Anyone suffer in the sleep department? We have a brand new grand so we, once again, see the struggle of being up all night. Not for a second have I forgotten what that was like with four. Every once in a while, Eddie or I will struggle. Things on our mind usually, but lots of things can keep us up at night. And that is what I hear more than anything else from people, sleep struggle.
We know how awful we feel the next day even when that happens randomly.
Sleep is SO important. And it’s just as important for adults to have a nighttime routine as it is for kids. My grandmother used to say that and I’d 😂😂😂😂 but it’s no joke!!! For us, we both use our hormone support oils before bed, Progessence Plus for me, Shutran for him. I also use either clary sage or schlaressence and Eddie uses Mister. We use a combo of oils in our diffuser and the bottom of our feet at times. But this supplement right here, Immupro...😴😴
I ran out recently and I fought the negative self talk every day. We sleep great with these chewables. And they offer immune support. Develop the routine and you’ll be so glad you did. You wash your face and brush your teeth before bed, right?! Just add maybe 90 seconds more to incorporate this and you’ll be glad you did!!! Oils + immupro = 😴😴

Happy Friday! Today I did one of my rare Follow Fridays up on my Instastory, but I just HAD to share this precious gal here too! 💗 I absolutely adore her, and you will too. 💗
I’ve been following @helengreenwell from hautebusiness.com since she started blogging, and y’all...she is really special! Helen is who I want to be when I grow up, mature, and calm down! 🤣
💗
She is so accomplished- a CPA, CFP, (and a couple of other smart person certifications that I don’t even understand!🤣). 💗
Her blog focuses on finance and fashion, and her classy style just oozes from every photo in her feed. Her advice is always spot on, and delivered with honesty and wisdom.
💗
I love her authenticity and candor, and she never fails to inspire me! Please follow @helengreenwell immediately- it will be the smartest move you make today! 🤗 Seriously!

Looking for one thing that can change your life today? A baby step causing a ripple effect for your entire physical, mental, and financial wellness for the future? Read this book.⁣

Sounds totally dramatic, but I’m serious!! ⁣

We had another room filled with people last night looking for answers to various health problems that are all related to gut health. This book by @emeranamayer will open up the gates for you to better understand what is going on with your digestive system and how it’s affecting your brain. That means fatigue, sleep issues, thyroid issues, weight gain, anxiety, depression - the list goes on and on.⁣

I cannot believe the impact that this science has had on my health and my family’s life.
Learning this information could be just the start to your wellness journey AND to financial freedom. Pick up a copy today. Amazon it. It’ll be in your hands in like 24-48 hours. Send me a note if you want to learn more on how the gut brain axis has changed my our lives..⁣

I wouldn’t be living out my purpose if I didn’t share. Love to all.

Looking for one thing that can change your life today? A baby step causing a ripple effect for your entire physical, mental, and financial wellness for the future? Read this book.⁣

Blue skies and an even more beautiful view. Just one of the 6 apartments I showed new clients on our first day together.

These are my results from using these incredible products! I may be 2 years older, but I’m looking years younger and my skin just looks healthier! There’s no filters, no editing, no makeup and the After picture was taken in the very same spot with same lighting. 🙌
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let me tell you why I love sharing these products with you! Zoom in... notice how the texture of my skin has improved dramatically! The eye cream has helped to firm around my eyes and actually give my eyelids some lift! My dark marks have almost disappeared. My pores have shrunk. My face has brightened. My lashes are longer and my brows are fuller. My skin just looks and feels amazing!! 🥰
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you have any skin concerns? Message me! I truly believe these products will help you too! ❤️

Good morning friends! Finally Friday. I don’t know about you, but it’s been an unusually long week!

I have a few projects in the works! Meanwhile check out my story later today! Have a great day!!! #emptynesters #emptynest #twinmom #midlifewomen #over50andfabulous #collegemom #weekend #fridayvibes #weekendvibes #busymom #busymomlife #workingmom

Up on emptynestblessed.com today, it's a post that I gotten lots of requests for:
Another edition of my designer dupe Splurge or Saves! (Don’t worry, these aren’t counterfeit items - no trademarks or designer logos - but they are fantastic knockoffs that’s will blow you away!)🙌🏻
💗
When I start looking for items for this kind of post, it gets kind of like a treasure hunt. It's about as addictive as eating Fritoes for me. CAN. NOT. STOP. 😂
💗
I think you're going to love the designer knockoffs I've got for you in this short and light post. 😁 So head to emptynestblessed.com to see ALL of the dupes (The ones in this collage are just a few of the ones I’m featuring!) and to my page on the @liketoknow.it app to shop this collage (you can use the link in my bio to get there fast). http://liketk.it/2JeAF #liketkit #ltkstyletip #emptynestblessed

#fridayfood

On our health journey trying different meals. This was a beef and squash skillet.

12 oz 97% ground beef
1 cup zucchini
1 cup summer squash
1 cup diced tomatoes
Mozzarella cheese
Seasoning

Brown ground beef
Add zucchini, sqush and tomatoe and heat
Served topped with cheese.

Didnt quite work out the way i had expected. Needs tweaking. However if you don't try new things you will never know what the outcome will be.

IS YOUR METABOLISM RUINED? 😭⁣

My client came to me feeling frustrated and a little bit skeptical that she would ever get back to the healthy, active self that she once was. ⁣

LIFE HAPPENS when you are busy raising young adults... and injuries, illnesses and emotional eating can throw you into a rut so deep, you almost forget what it’s like to have control over your body. ⁣

Know what I mean? 🤷🏻‍♀️⁣

You jump from one “diet” to another, and the scale goes down... then UP📈 even higher than when you started. You feel like you’ll never find that sweet spot of balance and peace in your body again. ⁣

💫The good news: It’s never too late and you’re never too old! ⁣

💫Your body is smart... and so are you! You just need to slow your roll a bit and regroup. #dontpanic

💫I have tools, resources and support that will help you pave the road to your goals... faster than doing it on your own. ⁣

When this client first came to me, she was hesitant of the simplicity of the program, but she TRUSTED THE PROCESS. ⁣

She totally ROCKED her results and went far beyond where she had typically gotten “stuck” before. ⁣

And now, she is taking it to the next level with LightHer Way. With whole-life coaching and 1:1 support, she is ready to evict those last stubborn pounds and SECURE a transformation for life. ⁣

If you are feeling:⁣
🔻stuck in your weight⁣
🔻stuck in your thinking ⁣
🔻ready to break free of a broken relationship with food and your body... ⁣

Then apply to work with me at the link in my bio 👆🏻⁣

LightHer Way is a 90 day 1:1 whole-life coaching program where I walk you through the deep work to be DONE with yo-yo dieting and emotional eating for good. ⁣

My beta test is FULL and under way, but I am taking applications for the next round in February. Let’s chat and see if this is the perfect fit for you!

Day 12! I’m almost through week 2!! And I’m feeling so GOOD!!! 😁😝🥰 This week, I have woken up every morning just feeling ALIVE!
It’s been early, before my alarm, but I’ve woken up feeling rested! Which isn’t usually the norm!
I’ll take those 5-6 hours of solid sleep! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I’m also realizing how often I was wandering through the kitchen and just grabbing something to throw in my mouth. 🍪Not because I was hungry!
More because I was bored, or worrying about something, or procrastinating doing something that needed done! Anyone else do that?? 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ I will admit, it’s not always been easy. I would love a piece of toast with peanut butter! And I miss my morning Energize!! ⚡️💥 But my body is feeling so much lighter! My mind is so much more clear!! And my energy is UP!!! ⬆️ I’m seeing and FEELING the difference between a body powered on caffeine and cheese, and a body powered by healthy clean foods!! 🍎🥑🥦🍊🍠 Oh and yeah, I’m down 10 lbs in the last 12 days! Those might even be some abs trying to peek through?? 🤷🏻‍♀️ That’s a real bonus, but it’s all the other non-scale wins that I’m most thrilled with!! The scale numbers will go up and down, depending on the day and time.

But those mental steps forward, the clarity and vitality, those are what’s fueling me to keep going strong through the last 12 days of this detox!! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 #40something #midlifefitness #nevertooold #makeachange #mentalclarity #refocus #betterchoices #myturn #itsmyturn #emptynesters #militaryspouse #militarymama

I heard about this happening to a young person I know! Both parties are just a couple of years out of college.
.
I have thoughts about what I would say if it were my friend, but I was wondering what your thoughts are! (Especially if you're closer to their age than mine. 🤣) Assume the friendship should stay intact. 🙂🌺

Good morning and happy Friday yay we did it week two back to work/school and we survived!

Well our trip started off rough thanks to Air Canada but we got out today and enjoyed Tokyo...a city we love to visit! The weather is beautiful, the people are incredibly gracious, and the city is so clean!
Shibuya Square - Shopping and business center. One of our favorite things to see is the Shibuya scramble. It’s one of the busiest intersections in Tokyo.

Uobei - our favorite sushi restaurant where you order on a screen and the plates come to your station on a conveyor belt. The food is so good!! Takeshita Street - Pedestrian shopping street. Outside this street is every possible designer store you could imagine!

Posted @withrepost@carlybbenson Alcohol has a way of being the exact opposite of what we *think it is or does for us. What lies did I miss? Let’s call alcohol what it actually is, whaddya say? #truthjuice #facts #truthbomb
.
.
Thanks Carly! I so agree👍🏼I’d like to add: .
🌟Alcohol promises confidence yet erodes our sense of resilience and self respect.
🌟It promises to bring us more freedom of expression and creativity yet it dulls and dilutes our very essence.
🌟Marketing tells us we can be become more fun, better partners and relax...it really takes away our true colors and puts everything in a monochromatic scheme. Nothing lively about that.
🌟Oh, and increases a woman’s chance of breast cancer by 15%...you won’t see that on a label or store display!🤭 .
.

Let’s keep it going! How can you add to this list??

It's 2020, and it's going to be a big year. This year I decided to select a strong word to define my year and help me stay focused on what really matters. I picked INTENTIONAL.
This year Steve and I turn 60🤪😳🥳, and I want to hit some goals in my business and personal life. Living my life with intention allows me to engage with purpose, happiness and joy in daily living. No not every day is a bed of roses and unicorns. In fact some days are extremely hard and don't go as planned. But one thing I have learned as I have gotten older and wiser is setting an intention opens up so many possibilities. It gives me a chance to wake up each day and live life with excitement, be purposeful in word and action. To choose love and kindness, to respond instead of react, to embrace instead of expect.
I want to be intentional instead of just getting by. I encourage you to be intentional when practicing self care. Give yourself space to take care of you. As I throw out the leftovers and start fresh in 2020, I am embracing my imperfections, decluttering areas that need a little work, accepting things I cannot change and will keep learning and growing into who God wants me to be. Thankful Steve and I can still piggy back, even though it was a bit more difficult this year.😂

I have lots of new followers so I thought I would reintroduce myself for the new year.
I own pH Latimer Skin and solo esthetician. I’m 51 years old and became an esthetician at 48. I stayed at home and raised my 3 amazing children before working for myself. My husband and I have been empty nesters for over a year now. We fell in love all over again ❤️❤️❤️. We have been married 29 years. He handles all my business stuff (and doesn’t charge me😂). I love all things skincare, makeup, fitness, healthy eating (except the last month🙄) and red wine😁. If I’m not working you will find me forever researching the newest and latest skincare and facials. I plan to start working 1 day a week in medical office (announcement coming later). I have a toy Goldendoodle named Paisley (she took the place of my kids). I love testing and doing makeup reviews. I did not have self confidence until I went to school. It’s sad that I wasted so many years not being happy with myself but I’m making up now 😜. Hope everyone has Happy New Year I look forward to what’s to come for 2020

Y’all. We can FINALLY share big news with you! Tim, Lacey and I traded beaches for peaches 3 and a half years ago (moved from Charleston, SC to Atlanta, GA). Now it’s time to trade those peaches for a crown—we’re heading to the Queen City—over the next few months we will be putting our home in Georgia on the market and looking for a new home in / around Charlotte, NC!
📦
Y’all. As life marches forward I continue to become even more trusting in Our Lord’s plans for us. This move to Georgia has been hard for Tim and me in many aspects—the most difficult has been maneuvering an empty nest and not living near either of our babies. One thing I never wanted was to live a world away from our babes. And while this move doesn’t solve for all of that it does solve for part of it—Taylor and Bryan live 50 miles outside of Charlotte. So? This move—not orchestrated by Tim or me directly—is His plan, there isn’t a doubt in my mind—not one. From a 4 hr drive away to a max of one hr away from them—perhaps even closer depending on where we land! Goodness!
📦
Tim & I will be on stories later this evening chatting with y’all about it—To say we are thrilled, blessed & excited is an understatement—we can’t wait to take you along for the process.
📦
This is the first of quite a bit of exciting things we will be sharing with you over the next month or so—I’m saying it again—2020—we love you! ♥️

Good morning and happy Friday yay we did it week two back to work/school and we survived! Actually it’s been quiet a good week and Fridays are always so much better when you are collecting your daughter from uni for the weekend. But first housework, a mountain of ironing and the obligatory house faffing! xxx #tulips #livingroom #moments #floral #flowers #myhomedecor #homesofinstagram #homeibspo #momentsthatcount #makingmemories #onedayatatime #emptynest #mylife #myhome #myhomestyle #myhouse #suffolk #livingroom #photographer #interiors #home #housetohome #family #emptynesters #lookafteryourself
