I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart
swipe swipe swipe for the most swoon-worthy moment of my day.
good grief he is pure joy! we could not stop giggling in that last video.
mamas, this is a reminder to all of us to get in photos with your kids. take tons of selfies. tickle them. let them tackle you onto the lawn. laugh with them. have fun! this day is the only today we get.

Ad. we’re now a full month into autumn and there have been days where it full-on feels like exactly like winter. (autumn, you’re not fooling anyone.) i am seeing a few of you post your final dredges of summer harvests on instagram and visually saying goodbye to your crispy fresh vegetables. but just because delicious summertime tomatoes have gone bye-bye doesn’t mean we have to stop enjoying delicious salads. in fact, a crisp and crunchy zucchini noodle salad is every bit as satisfying! have you ever zoodled? recipe link in bio 👆and tell me about your fav ways to use spiralized zucchini noodles! #arsoystory

My princess choose your battles wisely...
everyday can be a fight for something or with someone if you so choose. i want you, my princess warrior, to choose your battles wisely, and fight for things worth fighting for. there are so many things that stand against you in the battlefield, and there are so many worthy causes.
but the enemy of your soul will entice you to fight the wrong battles in order to distract you from your main mission. remember, my beloved, your fight is not against flesh and blood, but against evil forces in the spiritual realm.
when you find yourself in the midst of war, do not be afraid. call on me in prayer and allow me to deliver you. in my timing, i will give you the victory and bring justice to the afflicted. so don’t wast your time fighting the wrong battles. and never forget the spiritual war is fought and won on your knees.
when you are in a fiery trial sing songs of victory! one of my favorites is “this is how i fight my battles” by upperroom! what’s your favorite song of victory, sis?

Brilliant idea of the day: i’ll get the kids coloring while i run and grab a quick shower. (side note: washable crayon is the only crayon allowed in my house for a reason) #washablecrayonisagodsend #momlife #joyinthejourney #messyhousehappykids #bloggermama #bloggermom #theincrementalmama #artistickids #momblogger

Who doesn’t love brunch?🥂
good friends, delish eats & mimosas on a sunday. yes, please.
🗓as the kids calendars fill up, time is limited. but time well spent with family & close friends is my favorite way to spend my time. i was reminded how important connecting with others in real time, face-to-face is. not always stuck behind the screen just texting and commenting on posts.
🌻just sitting around the table, enjoying a meal and a cup of hot coffee together recharges the battery.

time is so precious. be intentional of who you spend it with. you choose who you surround yourself with.💫

Wear the truth: cutting thru our lies, gives us a louder roar, not with intimidation, but with grace! we gain a strength that does not need to be defended. an internal divine confidence that resides beside contentment. a gentleness that brings comfort, confidence & welcomes others to be themselves. games of control & poor communication are no longer played. happiness is understood, experienced & is recognized as an inside job. this process will ruffle the feathers of those who do not want to deal with their own lies, but the results of your choices to deal are undeniable, where there's no temptation to turn back. - kim, fashionablereststop

Day 22 of 31 is up in the link in profile. 🦋

this week i have assignments for you! the first time i was challenged to read the same chapter of scripture everyday i was confused. i did not see the point in reading the same thing everyday. but, the word of god is active and every time i approach it, even the same passage, i learn, discover, or realize something new. 🌻

i am challenging you in the first remaining assignment to read john 15 everyday this week. i am going to do it with you and share my daily insight in my ig stories. can't wait to see how this passage encourages us this week!
