If you look carefully at this photo, you can see the specks of glitter that covered every square inch of ground this morning. It's hard to see now, and doesn't photograph well. But it's there.
This morning I was lucky. In our rush to get to the school bus, I happened to stop for a moment and looked around. And what I saw took my breath away. The road, the yards, the cars, the fences...everything was glittering as if a glitter fairy flew over with a hole in her bag of glitter. It was magical. My kids and I sat and stared for a few moments, taking it all in, and then started up to the bus stop. By the time we hit the end of the path, the glitter had gone.
Where am I going with this?
Well, in pregnancy and postpartum there are so many of these fleeting magical moments. Take them in. Soak in the magic when it's there, because before you know it, that moment is over. I am not saying to enjoy every moment - that is impossible. But try to notice the magic when it's there - and when you do notice it, take it in. Breathe in those magical moments until they become a moment that is engrained into your memories. One day, you'll look back in awe at those magical moments!
so curious and very excited to see what looks my brides will be wearing this year 😍. whether we’re 5 or 25 and no matter how times change, the dress is always one of the most MAGICAL parts of a wedding. double tap if the dress is the first thing you look for when “browsing” (aka creeping😅) wedding photos hehe. 🙋🏼♀️

Cheers to Friday & cheers to some other exciting (& belated) news to share! While I am busy planning weddings & other fun events, I am also leading the @hopechestseattle team again this year. The 6th Annual Sale is taking place on April 7, 2019, so mark your calendars & tell your friends!
This event is super special to me not only because we get to give back, but it’s how I really got introduced into the Seattle Wedding Community (including becoming the Event Manager at @axispioneersquare!) & all of the amazing vendors here.
If you don’t know already, HopeChest is Seattle’s Original Wedding Rummage Sale, taking gently used wedding decor/items & selling it to give back where it counts. All proceeds are going to @marysplacewa this year & we are super excited for what we have in store for this year.
If you haven’t already, give our page a like to follow along for updates & event info- @hopechestseattle.
Cheers to giving back!

Продолжаем историю с Белой скалой.
Сегодня фото, которые отобрала и обработала я сама. Кстати, выбор для меня весьма странный. Во-первых, я очень долго комплексовала из-за своей курносости, но, как видите, заглавное фото - в профиль. Во-вторых, я долгий период не улыбалась на фото и вообще была весьма Драма Квин. Конечно это было связано с внутренним состоянием и, можно заметить, что его я поборола. Во все 32 я пока не лыблюсь, но дайте мне денег на виниры и всё будет 😂
Ну что, чей выбор "ближе к действительности", какие снимки в вашем восприятии больше отображают меня?

A volte mi fermo. Vedo tutto nero, non so più dove andare, mi perdo. A volte sparisco, mi sento come un piccolo schizzo di colore in un quadro, sono quasi impercettibile eppure ci sono. Un puntino fra tanti, mi sento soffocare, soffro di claustrofobia. Respiro, mi ascolto. Mi fermo di nuovo. A volte bisogna saper rallentare, non tornare indietro, quello mai. Bisogna saper delineare i confini, plasmare il proprio spazio e darsi un senso. Quel puntino non é solo, non lo é mai stato, fa parte di un tutto, e quel tutto é un capolavoro.

Whether you come to relax 😌 or for soul search🔎, you’ll see the mountain ⛰️ holds plenty of space to find what you’re looking for👀. That reminds me of an elderly matron👵 whom I met on these mountain stairs, she said "I'm sorry I'm so slow, I just take these walks to feel a little human, and seeing your energy reminds me of my energy and now I'm feeling more human" ❤️

You are worth your own fight, prove yourself a hero.
This morning was exactly what I needed and have been missing for a long time 😌 we woke up early to catch sunrise, listened to the freeze thaw of ice expanding on the lake, jumped in a canoe and paddled into the quiet morning while the group of pals kept warm by the fire on the beach. Can’t wait for more mornings like this✨
