when it's almost friday but not quite... #tbt 16 year old me with false tears, a digital camera, and a poppin' MySpace. #kattypants (pixelated, cause '05)
With how cluttered our planet is and how quickly little boys grow, I am pretty dead-set against purchasing any new clothing for my son. Today I am happily repurposing some cotton shirts we plucked up at the West Hollywood @goodwillintl (special shoutout to the person who donated my new Jill Sander overshirt.) A cotton thermal that once said "BE CHILL" will now be a monogram over an indian tunic. My mom always made clothes for us growing up and I think it's such a special way to incorporate your personality and love into the texture of your family's life. I'm just going for it, a little creativity goes a long way. ( a @parsonsschoolofdesign education doesn't hurt, either ) I have been designing easy to wear, simple garments for Link and look forward to sharing them w you.
joy in the shape of a boy (a dirty, nekked little boy to be specific) #yeehaw
mondaze, glazed over. Today, I broke a vase, dog almost got hit by a car, and Link pooped in his bed on two separate occasions. Bout to put my little darling to sleep for the night and recoup. Try again tomorrow.
Thanks mama for the raw silk chantung that I swiped, shredded and braided to make this choker....and thanks for them eyeballs, too @quicahoelck#igetitfrommymama
#tbt back when Link was but a squaky 5 month old jolly-jumpin to the groove to our wedding playlist. [Pull Me Down by Mickey Ecko, Your House by Steel Pulse, Wear Your Love Like Heaven by Donovan, All I Have To Do is Dream by The Everly Brothers and Cherry oh Baby by Eric Donaldson ] Love the music swag that my man @anthonygoble provides us... decked in great playlists. #LINKjHG#kukuHG#anthonygoble
After carrying a baby and having a surgical birth to recover from, I am humbled and grateful to my body for the fruit it bore and for the places it has carried me. It took a solid year for my body to adjust and heal up, and I am stronger now than I've ever been in my life. I feel activated, curious, alive. Tumbled smooth, made strong by perseverance.
Shoutout to my little buddy Links for taking a super long nap today so I can soak in the sun and get my @kayla_itsines on. I am loving her @sweat app- simple 28 minute workout and I am feeling muscles I don't think I've ever really used. 🏽♀️. It's nice to have a well-designed personal training app. I can get my fitness on in the comfort of my backyard. No commute, no childcare needed, surrounded by green and breeze. #motivationmonday
Happy #siblings day (I mean I think it is... according to the inter webs...) boy do I love my crew, what a gift we were given to have each other as friends and mirrors in this life. It's getting so rich now that we are getting older and sprouting up kids of our own (shoutout to Lincoln, Carter, and Frankie Blue!) thanks for being loving and funny and thoughtful and there. Special shoutout to mom and dad for doing such heavy lifting in raising five kids, for supplying thick magic and love in our childhood onward. love you guys to the moon.

true peace doesn't happen in a vacuum. Life doesn't pause for us to arrive to the task of growing up and being a strong example to those in our vicinity. To be in the middle of the hustle and to resonate peace is a powerful practice, contagious even. Sending strength and focus to you as you wrap up your week and embark your weekend agendas. May we be excellent examples to those who witness us. Purpose over perfection, peace over popularity. Sending love and strength your way. You are a drop in a sea of people, but you are seen.
Our sweet little spines get crunched from all of the physical and mental stressors of modern life. Even if it's just for a hot second, #flow every day. Move it all around, let out the little pockets of crunchy memory, make space for a new range of motion. Lubricate the joints. This is today's version for me, I go into it with no real objective, I move through what my body is feelin. Letting go of the mind and putting all focus into the body is incredibly centering and inspiring. If nothing else, feel your feet connect to the earth and press deeply. Shoot energy down through your soles and feel you spine grow taller, weightless, as the top of your head floats up to the sky. Take the deepest breath you've had all day. Therein lies your power. If you're feeling blah, give it a go.
I say go for it... that thing you're thinking about doing. In case you needed a second opinion, I vote #doit
I've loved you since the moment I saw you eleven years ago in that parking lot. Thanks for being my ride or die guy. It means everything to me to have you by my side @anthonygoble. Throwback to our walk home last night #truelove
my woman crush is a canine
sweet dreams dear prince
straightening out the organism, goin w the flow. Taking deep breaths to raise my vibration. I am resonating to the note of D - sending healing to those in need, myself included. Visualization isn't so much about what you see as it is about what you feel, about the note you hold, about what you resonate.

I miss him when he goes to sleep and wanna steal a kiss. Obv wouldn't dare waking a sleeping toddler so instead professing my love to you. #LinkJHG
one of these two creatures is wearing aligners (clue: it's the one who still has all of her teeth 🏻). It's like being a tween again but no metal in the mouth this time around. I am genuinely thrilled to be on my way to correcting a spacing issue I've dealt with since my wisdom teeth went rogue at age 21. Thank you, @smiledirectclub me and my dog are stoked. #whatmakesmesmile
