Today is #nationaladoptionday. I've shared a similar photo of this moment before (photographed by my friend @laurenclarkphoto)- but I'm purposefully sharing this one tonight, because it is more revealing of the deep things that were going on in both of our hearts at this time. Lucy had been home about 4 months. I was trying- no, forcing- her to rock with me, lay on me, make eye contact with me...anything just to know that she trusted me. But at this point, she had no reason to. There just hadn't been enough time together. So, for weeks, and then months, we worked through it. Eventually I went to see a counselor to work out some of my own heart issues this new relationship had stirred up. That practice has been so wonderful and will now be a permanent monthly appointment for me- no matter where life is at. After a while (and, of course, way later than I preferred), things got better. We could joke without a sense of distrust. She would really hug me. Lay her head on me. Let me in on her private little world. We still have our moments, our failures- but thankfully these days, there are a lot more sweet moments than sour. I am better prepared to parent her, and she is better prepared to be my daughter. I wanted to share this today, for #nationaladoptionday, because in this photo, I want you to see two broken people learning how to love each other. That, my friends, is the most beautiful part of adoption. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wecouldhavemissedthis #chineseadoption #chinaadoption #adoptionrocks #oneless #internationaladoption #lifestyleblogger #blogsociety #liveauthentic #simplemoments #mykindredstory #lovelysquares #clickinmoms #candidchildhood #portraitpage #ouradoptionstory #postthepeople #adoptionislove #themindfulapproach #momentsofmine #documentyourdays #thelifestylecollective #candidchildhood #follow_this_light #ig_portrait #humansofjoy #lightslove

Are you running on empty?👇🏻 Then you might need to read this as well... Have you noticed I’ve been M.I.A on social media?... Probably not because instagrams algorithm sucks, but I like to think you have noticed 😂 This year I went to the @letsrise.co (Rise Dallas Conference) and during that conference @msrachelhollis said something that spoke to me. She asked us “are we running our calendar or are we letting our calendar run us?” I promised myself I wouldn’t let this happen to me AGAIN. Before this conference I was balancing way too much and not focusing on anything I truly needed to focus on. I’m a “Yes” person and it can be a terrible quality. Well here I am only 4 months since the conference and i hate to admit it but, I have every single day completely booked morning to night. 🤦🏼‍♀️ working late, running a business (that in less than a year tripled in growth), mom stuff, house stuff, wife stuff, learning stuff. My calendar is back to running me again! I became super sick these last two weeks and it has me wondering if I’m not taking good enough care of myself. I know I’m not bc I’m always on the back burner like most of us moms, and I realized I did it to myself. So here I am saying to all 16,000 of you, I will begin to say “No” more. This simple word “No” will help me focus on ME and allow me to get more rest I deserve. So after I complete all the commitments I already said yes to 😂 I will begin to say “I can’t” not because I don’t love and support you but because I need to be a healthy me first!

👏🏼3 THINGS IM LOVING LATELY👏🏼 - Speaking of things I’m loving lately... I just posted on the blog all about “Things I Use Every Single Day”! This post is my version of “Oprah’s Favorite Things” as well as a gift guide! For now, here’s some things I couldn’t live without recently: - (1) Spin! - I never thought I would say this but I think I have become obsessed with spin class! The local studio for me is Cyclebar and I think I have found my favorite instructor... My class last night was the BEST class I have ever been to and I can already tell I will be addicted. Going to my class yesterday has gotten me out of this funk I was in this past weekend and got me motivated to work harder at school and at life! - (2) Rocksbox - This subscription service allows you to test out 3 jewelry pieces at a time for only $21 a month! Shipping was SUPER fast and I was about to test out $103 worth of jewelry. You can try it out for a month for FREE with the code “capturinglifexoxo”. Check out my highlights to see what I got in this box! #ad #rbitgirl #rocksbox - (3) Laniege Lip Mask - My lips have been so dry but with this mask and my Burts Bees lip scrub, the dryness and peeling completely went away! I love using this just as a lip balm (because honestly I’m not sure how to use it ask a mask) - What is one of your favorite things right now?

It's Transgender Day of Remembrance! Ask questions, educate yourself, use pronouns and create an inclusive environment! As a genderfluid person, my pronouns can change day-by-day, or even hour-by-hour. I typically default to they/them/theirs, but I sometimes use she/her/hers. Being part of such a supportive university means the world to me, and is a refreshing change in my life. Having the space to share my needs and identities, and to know that they will be affirmed and respected without question, is not just a nice thing; it’s necessary for my mental health. #lgbtqia #lgbt #pride #inclusive #pronounsmatter #youmatter #genderidentity #genderexpression #genderfluid #trans #gender #dysphoria #pansexual #pan #demisexual #demi #lgbtpride #loveislove #lovewins #lovehasnolabels #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #bloggerlife #hustle #lumenslifestyle

Pro Tip: Make homemade healthy alternatives to takeout so when you drink a beer with dinner, you don’t hate yourself after 😂🍺 . . Tonight I made homemade teriyaki lo mein (sort of) with veggies, tofu and @lotusfoods organic millet and brown rice ramen noodles! I am definitely going to pick the noodles again at @costco when I run out! . . This Chinese takeout alternative wasn’t just healthier than greasy takeout, but it was also completely plant based 🌱It took me the same amount of time to make it as it would have to get delivery! . . Also the @tworoadsbrewing holiday ale is sensational, I highly recommend it for your go to holiday beer! 🤙 . . . #homemadefood #plantbased #vegan #newenglandblogger #newenglandliving #newenglandlifestyle #tworoadsbrewing #tworoads #dinnerideas #connecticut #ctblogger #ctbloggerbabes #bloggerlife #connecticut_igers #newengland_igers #healthylifestyle #plantbasedrecipes #connecticutlife #lifestyleblogger
