Palolam Beach ,goa

These are some of Palolems beach front huts. .

At the beginning of every season in October they appear from scratch creating this holiday based town. What blows my mind is that at the end of every season in April, they vanish and it becomes a ghost town until the new again. .

This kind of reminds me that everything is temporary. People come and go but this cycle here remains the same. So relate this to your own life - don't worry too much about the future, focus on the temporaryness of your NOW! Make the most of it. ~Marianne

We are back home and ready to start a new week.
We've seen good people, eaten good food and have big plans for the future.
❤️
A quiet day at home today as 12 hours on a plane with a toddler is no joke.

Being able to build relationships with family is one of our favorite reasons to travel to Utah often.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today was a wonderful Sabbath day. We were able to catch our niece and nephew's primary programs and then visit with even more family. Such a blessing and a treat. Do you get to see family as often as you'd like?

The Cliffs At Peace Canyon

It was my first time in a swimming suit since I was pregnant with this little guy. I'm not going to lie, it was a little rough.
I started out that pregnancy a little on the heavy side. After I had him, I had pretty bad postpartum depression, which contributed to even more weight gain
I'm now 30 pounds over what I usually weigh. Nothing fits right any I hate it. I tried on all of my swimsuits before we left for vacation and I could only get one on. I felt terrible and did NOT want to wear it.

I sucked it up and put the suit on for my kids. After all, you only get one first time in the pool. (It was my toddler's first!) I am so glad I did. There were screams of delight, a lot of "mom look at me" from my older two, splashing galore, and a whole lot of smiles. 💓

There are a lot of coach's out there you could join up with. You have to find "your person".❤ I believe consistency & accountability are priority and the main reason I've lost 25lbs so far and kept it off.

I believe that finding a tribe of like minded women to surround yourself with is not only helpful in your weight loss journey but crucial for life in general!

I believe in trying different types of workouts and making fitness fun.
I believe that life should be celebrated with wine & chocolate...a lot!!😉 There has to be balance with my nutrition or I'm out!

I believe most women have more strength & ability then they think they do and I love being a part of them figuring that out.💗 If you're ready to work on becoming your best self~ then we should chat. I'd love to tell you more about my team! Just drop me a dm or message me kaswhatup@comcast.net

When I first introduced these books to the kids, they weren’t sure what to think. They were hooked by the second page and enjoyed every word. Sometimes I think I can actually see the wheels turning in their brain, the kind of look that hints of flickering ideas and wonder. The books we read are only beginning when we turn the last page. That’s when we take the ideas from the page and make them our own in real everyday life. 🍁 First we read “The Other Way to Listen”. It was beautiful and made us smile. It didn’t escape my notice that the next morning one of the kids said, “Let’s go outside and see what nature is telling us today.” Yes, let’s do. 🍂 When we read “Your Own Best Secret Place”, Bubba immediately ran outside, grabbed a broom and starting tidying up one of the spots he loves most. He couldn’t wait to show me and then he couldn’t wait to share it with Miss Bliss. ✨These are the moments I’m so grateful for books, for beauty, for ideas and wonder, for family and for living hope. But every moment or day does not look like this. FAR from it. Just tonight I walked our land with my husband and our dog. I cried as I shared my failures, my questions and desperation, my longings and disappointments. But you know what? In the honesty and acceptance and companionship, hope grew. After all, trenches are where love does the best work. ✨ God, may we not shirk from the ragged edges of our unfolding stories. Give us eyes to see and receive the goodness and heaps grace for hope-drenched living in the simple things. //

At 12 AM, in the city, a few of us brought in a friend’s 28th year.

At 2 AM, at home, I cleaned the coffee table of left mixed drinks and poured out whatever was left inside. Who had brought over four maraschino cherries for their drink? There wasn’t a jar left anywhere. It required a strange determination to travel from the city to Brooklyn with a game plan for this particular drink.

At 7:00 AM, @willowfantino texted saying she’d arrived to my apartment from Montana, but I had woken up a few times already in those few hours.

Much later, we watched the sunset for an early dinner over the water.

I plan on eating a lot of home made bread this week. .

I was 110% living my best life today. The temps were in the 50’s + 60’s, it was rainy and we had a real good trip to Target. We got a lot of stuff that we’ve been saving up for, so I thought it would be fun to share!

Real talk! Today didn’t go as planned...
I didn’t get my workout done first thing this morning...or at all. I ate a bagel for breakfast not my superfood shake. I took a much needed nap and definitely wasn’t in the mood to go food shopping or meal prep at all. Yeah...days like these happen to me too. .
.
After taking my own advice, giving myself some time and not letting my morning dictate the rest of my day, I made my grocery list, went food shopping with Joe and got straight to cooking! Why? Because setting myself up for success is important to me. Days like these don’t mean my goals go completely out the window. I might be prepping my meals at 7pm, but at least I’m doing it! That’s a win to me!

What I’m trying to say is, sometimes you aren’t going to feel like you have it “all together”. Your day might not go as planned and that’s ok! You can’t have it all together 100% of the time. You just need to do your best! .

Keto chili for dinner tonight and the recipe is perfected to exactly how i like it 🙌🏻 i used @this.is.keto ‘s recipe as my base and it was amazing before i made the minor changes! I made my own chili seasoning (onion powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper powder, garlic powder, pink salt, cinnamon and pepper)-did one can diced tomatoes, ground beef, chopped bell pepper and onion, and some @ghughessugarfree hickory sauce. It worked in a pinch for sure, but i realllly like @this.is.keto’s bbq sauce recipe she adds, i was just out of Dijon mustard. If you aren’t following her, you’re missing out! She is super real, inspirational, and posts great recipes!

My tougher than nails little dude. There haven’t been as many smiles these past few days so catching this sweet one today was perfect. It’s been a tough day. We’ve gotten some answers, yay! with clear treatment choices. but we’ve also gotten some news I have to say I wasn’t fully prepared for or ready to hear.⁣

Isaiah’s journey with infantile spasms, a yucky and rare type of seizure, started in June. From June until September he was treated with two rounds of a hormonal therapy, one of the first lines of treatment for spasms. It didn’t fully do the trick the first time but he responded better the second and it cleared up the abnormal brain wave pattern associated with the spasms. The side effects, some of which we saw, can be difficult so it can only be an option for so long. So we started the ketogenic diet as he was finishing his last round and hoped that everything would stay as it was, spasm free. We came to Duke for two other totally separate issues but yesterday he was hooked back up for a video EEG and it was confirmed this morning. the spasms. were. back. ⁣

It sucks! Epilepsy sucks and infantile spasms suck. Just no fun. no good. and so unwanted. But God is good. He is always good. And He continues to show up in big ways, all over. I didn’t expect to hear what I heard today but I also couldn’t think of a better place to be to hear that news. We were here for something else and now have a new fight but we didn’t wait long to confirm and weren’t at home questioning if what we saw was abnormal activity or not. And I am so thankful for that. We have an incredible team here who are doing all they can to help us find the next best treatment plan for these nasty spasms. It gets a little tricky because of a suspected genetic condition and treatment limitations due to that but we won’t give up. ⁣

I don’t know why we are on the journey we are on. But my goodness, we have the most amazing little blessing right here. With the sweetest big brother at home. Then there’s my sweet brother who may no longer be with us, but will always be a reminder that anything is possible and that even in the hardest times, there’s always a reason to smile.

The first frame is what I’d like for you to believe it’s been here at the Efnor home while the parents play Ma and Pa on Trek to other children than their own, but the hard facts are... all wrapped up in the frames after! Boys are a lot of work man! Don’t get me wrong it’s been a blast, but I’ve forgot a couple things that I for sure will remember next time. Like- IRON church clothes the night before!!! Carry tissues always! And my favorite... paper and crayons for Sacrament meeting. That last frame you’ll notice a wad of tissue stuffed up Jesse’s nose. Yeah- he’s been having bloody noses so that’s been a blast too. 😂 PS Dear Debbie... I think I understand a little better why your van is usually messy. 😂 #boysarepigs #jcrew #joehassomuchhair #dirtundernailsdontcare #grandsons #joyinthejourney #efnormorrisneighborhoodadventures

I think I understand a little better why your van is usually messy. 😂 #boysarepigs #jcrew #joehassomuchhair #dirtundernailsdontcare #grandsons #joyinthejourney #efnormorrisneighborhoodadventures

And at last I see the light ✨⁣

Wow, yesterday felt straight out of a Disney movie! Zach and I went to the @nightlightsevent and we saw thousands of lanterns float up into the night into the most spectacular display of lights! (We even saw someone get engaged!!!) ⁣

Listen to this metaphor Zach shared with me as we were leaving: Isn’t beautiful that, to the world, that’s how we’re supposed to look? The Lord lights a fire in us and sends us out to be lights to those around us. ⁣

John 8:12 - "Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”⁣

We accidentally burned a hole in one of our lanterns so it struggled to take off, but when it did, we found ourselves cheering and all the more in awe when it reached the skies. And it reminded us that in our stories, just when we think we can’t be used to shine for His glory because of our burns and our messiness, He lifts us up and makes us shine to be a witness to those watching. ⁣

Friends, may we be the lights of the world, our stories used to exemplify His goodness.❤️

It is not that we do not take the gift of life serious, but when we take ourselves serious, things become heavy, weighted down. Play the game with lightness. It brings a joy in the journey.
What is one place you could bring a little lightness into your to do list for your business today?
Do you think if you felt lighter, more filled with joy, that you would get more or less done, I would love to hear from you about this.
Sometimes I do playshops for business teams, and not surprisingly after the playshops the teams of people actually get into more actions and sales go up, in less time.
Interesting? Or is it that maybe how things really work? .

Have you ever held on to something or someone, because you were afraid of what would happen when you let go?
🌻

One of the big lessons I've learned in the past eight years is that it's okay to let go.
🌼

It's okay to set boundaries, in fact, it's needed. If someone doesn't respect what you have put in place for your own health, they aren't for your life.
🌻

People grow. People change. Sometimes that change ends up being unhealthy for where you are and are going. That doesn't mean the person is bad, but they aren't good for you anymore.
🌼

It hurts to let go of friendships and church buildings, but a long history isn't a reason to stay. Especially if staying means you are sacrificing your growth to please someone other than God.
🌻

Everyone deserves to be respected, not shamed for the journey they are on.
🌼

It's scary, but letting go and even being let go of, is one of the best events that has ever happened to me.
🌻

Sentimental reasons are not good enough reasons to stay in a toxic relationship.

🇺🇸 Stopped in a park outside downtown DC last night to soak up the last moments of sun, to show my body some love. Movement to heal, movement to appreciate. 🙏🏻
. .
A few moments of yoga can wash away so much stress & declutter the mind. 😌 Each day strive to move: get creative, remain curious, be playful, enjoy the moment. 🧘🏼‍♀️

Honored to be a part of this group of mega brave mega babes 🔥
This is a true sisterhood of courage. Individually we all decided to step out in faith to chase a dream of carrying a child. Something that we all had been told from a young age was impossible. That is until we met a team of medical professionals who said it didn’t have to be impossible anymore 🙌🏻 I can’t describe the feeling of being in a room with all of these incredible women. Living with MRKH I always felt like there was this island I lived on, always a slight disconnect from the rest of the female population. But these ladies get it.
And none of us let the fear (which there is a lot of) of the unknown with this trial hold us back. And with whatever the outcome will be for each of us, I’m still so proud and humbled to be in this with them 👯‍♀️ To quote our surgeon and champion Dr. Testa, “this picture with all of you is the most powerful testament to the willingness of women to defeat infertility against all odds and through any obstacles.” I couldn’t agree more 🤘🏼🖤 #mrkh #uterustransplant #girlpower #mariannesutxjourney

PUMPKIN PIE... Honestly, one of my favourite things about thanksgiving dinner! I consider myself to be an okay baker - things might not look like the staged photos but they usually taste pretty good! I've been making this @marthastewart recipe since I moved up to Grande Prairie, and the only time it didn't turn out was when I forgot to add the half and half to the mix - oops! Even then it still tasted amazing (we added extra whipped cream!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This quote is LIT’RALLY one of my life mottos, but it doesn’t mean to me what you think it means.
👇🏼
“I’m going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life.”
- Elsie De Wolfe
.
Anything can be made beautiful, no matter how mundane or insignificant it seems.
🏡
This tiny, dated apartment we chose to live in during this season of minimizing debt? 👉🏼I’ll find inexpensive ways to create a beautiful home for us.
🧺
That pile of laundry I’ve been putting off for a week? 👉🏼I’ll turn up the music & gratitude, making chores an act of worship.
👥
That draining relationship the Lord has called me to? 👉🏼 I’ll extend grace and forgiveness, glorifying Him through it.
.
It’s easy to think, “I’ll be happy and my life will be beautiful as soon as...” (...you lose 10lbs, you land that dream job, you find a spouse, you pay off your mortgage.)🙅🏼‍♀️Sister, if you’re not happy now, I promise you won’t be when you reach those goals. But life will be so much more JOYFUL if you choose to find beauty one moment at a time... and those moments will add up to a beautiful life✨

God you know my girls in and out
You thought of them before I was born & you formed them perfectly in your image.
You know their futures; the jobs, relationships and passions they’ll have. You know the battles they will face and the courage they’ll need to overcome them. .
.
God, all I see is today. The struggles, sleepless nights and tantrums but you see how these days are building their foundation. Lord I need help to make sure it’s solid & built on You. Teach me Jesus, to love them like You do so they can become all you created them to be. I don’t want to screw this up!
.
.
Thank you that as parents we aren’t on our own. Daily you are providing all we need to guide and love our kids. Even when it’s hard, overwhelming and tiring you are in the midst of it strengthening us. Help us to rest in your goodness & wisdom as we raise these tiny humans.

I told DJ I was writing down words to describe this pregnancy and every single word seemed to be a synonym for EASY. I told DJ that if every pregnancy could be this easy I think I could be pregnant all the time😜 But for reals, I truly believe this has been an easy pregnancy because I kept moving — I kept active. I kept doing what I did before pregnancy. I didn’t use pregnancy as an excuse but as a reason to keep things the same. I didn’t do anything crazy. I kept to my 6 weekly workouts and tried to get in all my servings of veggies (which is 3😉). My workouts look different as my belly keeps growing and my appetite changes as some foods I can’t get enough of (grapes!) but I will keep moving and keep getting my 3 veggies in until Baby B comes💗💙

Your body will do what your mind tells it. Strengthen your mindset and allow your body to amaze you💪🏼

Can I relive this day maybe just one more time? 🤪🤪🤪 It’s moments like these that I am reminded how special my friendships and family are, and how we all deserve to be showered with love the way I was yesterday. 💛💛💛
———
To all past, current and future brides: a little sliver of advice - Even if there is no special occasion, promise to shower yourself and others with love anyway! Because once all the wedding hype is over it’ll be even more important to continue instilling that love through the day to day.
———
And this is the part where you say to yourself “challenge accepted!”.

WALKING INTO THE WEEKEND LIKE!♥️💃🏻👋🏼 I’d be lying if I said I hated weekends. Heck, I’m all about snoozing my alarm & drinking coffee at my own pace☕️⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
But recently, I’ve been working to balance resting well💤 and walking strong💪🏼 Rest is so important to Jesus but being ready to selflessly move when He calls is the priority.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Reminder ➡️ Enjoy moments of rest. But when choosing to serve someone OR stay comfortable, choose action. Choose to walk strong in the Lord’s power — trust Him to give you the time & means to put others before you ♥️⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Whether you’re staying in🏡 or going out🏃🏻‍♀️… Walk strong & seek love. Hug your loved ones. Chat with a stranger. Text a friend. Make someone a meal. Give up an hour of your “you-time.” Now that’s what I call a worthwhile weekend☺️⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
FT. another @showpo number that is the epitome of fall feminine style🥰

Whether you’re staying in🏡 or going out🏃🏻‍♀️… Walk strong & seek love. Hug your loved ones. Chat with a stranger. Text a friend. Make someone a meal. Give up an hour of your “you-time.” Now that’s what I call a worthwhile weekend☺️⁣⁣⁣

You may only hold my hand for a little while, but you will hold my heart forever baby girl 🍂

We’ve had a lovely Sunday! Daddy had to work today so it was just me & my girl at @waterbabiesuk this morning, which I absolutely LOVED! Then we spent some quality time with Nanna & Grandad this afternoon. Hope you’ve all had a wonderful one 🧡

At church on Sunday I was rocking Zoey to sleep and I was a little bummed I couldn’t raise my hand to worship. As soon as that thought crossed my mind I heard God say “rocking that baby is worshipping me” .
.
Tears filled my eyes as I thought about how easy it is for me to lift my hands to worship Jesus but what he really wants is for me to see that how I use my hands everyday is worship. .
.
Changing dirty diapers - worship
Making an endless amount of snacks and meals - worship
Folding laundry & putting it away - worship
Feeding bottles + cleaning dishes - worship
Picking up toys, brushing little teeth & rocking babies at all hours of the night - worship. .
.
We see it as mundane tasks and Jesus sees it as worship- the kind that costs us something. So whether you are in the trenches of motherhood or adulthood God sees it all and He wants you to know it brings a smile to his face!

I wouldn't want to explore life with anyone else, he's my rock & my best friend, forever. 💛

The Rocky Mountains were covered in fog that day but even at that it was beautiful! We, along with the kids enjoyed climbing rocks & spotting wildlife!
