MAMAS & FRIENDS ✨ Seeking advice on future travel with an infant (both internationally and nationally). I am an avid traveler and definitely want to plan some family travel after our baby girl arrives in July. What are some pieces of advice for me, for traveling with an infant, for family travel, that worked or didn’t work for you? Ages, stages, that are best or worst for travel? 💁🏼 Weigh in! •
Having a babe and slowing down on travel is something I don’t want to compromise on. Obviously it will be different and we’ll make some adjustments but what can help prepare me? •

I’ve been asking myself lately: how can I have more fun in this situation? 🧡🌲🤸🏼♀️
Wherever I am, whatever I’m doing, it’s been a game-changer in how I relate to myself, others, and the energy I radiate and attract.
Try asking yourself that question in any moment you feel you need some good vibes (like that 9-5 grind) and see how life unfolds around you. ✨ #HaveMoreFun
Not so bad considering that I haven't been eating the way I should be since the role change at work but today's #MondayMotivation and it's about time to shape up my eating and start focusing in on having a set diet so I can get away with eating bad a fourth of the time out of the week. 🍕, 🍺, 🍪, 🍣 or whatever come at me. I'll make sure I'll consume you by creating a healthy balance. Lifting isn't just about looking great- it's also about being able to live life in control so you can take part in the simple joys of life. Remember! 1 lb of muscle gained adds 50 calories to your Basal Metabolic Rate! Stay consistent. Stay lifting heavy. Raise your BMR and in the long run, you'll be able to get away with a lot more and still look great. Fun fact: if I do an hour of weight training and an hour of cardio on that same exact day I can eat all my normal meals and 2 large pizzas and all I would've gained is a little bloat but no actual weight gained.
You know that saying “ Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away.“ I really believe those moments make life worth living. I feel God gives us exactly what we need at exactly the right time.
So this happened today:
Jon was starting his OT session and I ran upstairs to get a few things done. I heard Jon getting pretty upset so I started heading back downstairs. As I got to the stairs I saw Jon sitting right at the bottom of the staircase. He looked at me and said, clear as day, “I love you.” That moment is all I need to know that Jon loves me even though he isn’t always able to express himself or control his anger towards me when his brain misfires and he takes out his frustration on me. These three words clarifies to me that those obstacles are just the injury & Jon’s heart & soul are still with me. Oh how wonderful that moment felt.
Many have been so kind to recommend different communication ideas, devices, etc. We have tried it all. Sadly, the obstacle Jon faces is that all lines of communication from writing, pointing, signing, speaking, typing, etc. are inconsistent. In other words, all areas of communication (spoken, written, manual) are damaged. Trust me it’s a hard thing to grasp as I can’t imagine not being able to communicate. Jon’s inability to communicate is so hard to witness but must be unimaginable to personally experience. We work every day on finding consistency using tools that occasionally work for Jon when he is willing to participate. For those who experience Aphasia or have family members/friends that struggle, my heart is with you. To be honest, I knew nothing about this before experiencing it with Jon.
As tough as this is, I keep looking up. I know the Lord has a bigger plan. He gives me peace and moments like today that fill my heart with love and happiness! Praise the Lord
A trip to @tropicalnorthqueensland isn’t complete without a trip to the world's oldest surviving rainforest 👉 the Daintree. Immerse yourself in a Jurassic world where dinosaur-like birds still roam free, ancient culture is near-palpable, and you'll find over 1200 of green wilderness, making it one of the most complex ecosystems in the world. Have you done the Daintree? #thisisqueensland by @xendoncross #exploretnq
