🔹I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing. Laughter is the sound of our souls dancing, it’s the best form of therapy and it’s a language everyone can understand. Laughter makes us feel alive! Hope your Friday is filled with tear making, breath taking, loud belly laughs! . . . #laughmore #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving #liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#southbay#inspireme #losangeleslifestyleblog#fitmom#thisis45 #gratefulheart #photojournalist #40something #inspiringpeople #liveyourbestlife #livefully #momsofinstagram #lifeuned #positiveliving #losangeleslifestyleblog #alifeofintention #momofteens #fitmom #thehappylife #inspireme #thisis45 #inspirationaljournalist #thisis40 #southbay #laughmore #gratefulheart
🔹45. Is age just a number? I can’t run as fast, eat as much, and need more sleep. My joints ache in the morning and it takes me three days to recover from a night out. But I have years of life experience that only time gave me with the knowledge of self which would have been hard to achieve in my 20s or even 30s. Because of this, l’m happier than I’ve ever been! For a girl who used to hate my birthdays, it sure feels good to appreciate them now! I shall celebrate all month, and today I will milk all the attention I can get from my hubbie as we go hiking near Malibu! Cheers to celebrating wisdom, love and the gift of life! . . . #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving #liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#southbay#inspireme #losangeleslifestyleblog#fitmom#birthdaypost #thisis45 #itsmybirthday #gratefulheart #photojournalist #40something #inspiringpeople #liveyourbestlife #livefully #momsofinstagram #lifeuned #positiveliving #losangeleslifestyleblog #alifeofintention #momofteens #fitmom #thehappylife #inspireme #loveyourlifestyle #thisis45 #itsmybirthday #thisis40 #inspirationaljournalist #southbay #birthdaypost #gratefulheart

🔹 “What other people think of you is none of your business.” I’ve been hearing this quote lately, and it’s been giving me pause. It’s human nature to want approval and acceptance. But the reality is, when we are sure of ourselves, it really doesn’t matter what others think or say! I can’t tell you I’ve mastered this 100%, but I’m getting there. Hope you have a confident, inspiring, fulfilling weekend! . . . . . #puntamita#inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving #enjoythejourney#liveyourbestlife#writeyourstory#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens #inspirationalwomen#southbay#inspireme #livewithpurpose #losangeleslifestyleblog #photojournalist #40something #inspiringpeople #livewithpurpose #liveyourbestlife #writeyourstory #livefully #enjoythejourney #momsofinstagram #lifeuned #positiveliving #losangeleslifestyleblog #alifeofintention #momofteens #thehappylife #inspireme #loveyourlifestyle #puntamita #inspirationalwomen #inspirationaljournalist #thisis40 #southbay

🔹My 12 year old son got his new bike stolen yesterday. Within 10 minutes after parking, it was taken. “Why didn’t you lock it?” “I thought we would be right there and I’d see it.” “Why didn’t you call us when it happened? “We thought we might be able to find it.” “What would you have done if you found the thief riding away on it?” “We would have told him to give it back.” . I am reminded on almost a daily basis- teenagers’ brains don’t reach full maturity until their 20s. Functions of the brain including attention, the ability to regulate emotions, logic, reasoning, and the ability to inhibit impulses are all skills which are developed over time physiologically and in practice. Incidents like these scare me! My husband and I are constantly surprised at the decision making skills of our boys and sometimes feel like it’s a never ending record playing the song, “what were you thinking?” I noticed so many parents get quiet about their kids during their teen years. I wonder if it’s because they are all dealing with the same issues! . It’s all part of raising our kids, this I know. I wish we could have a peek at them as adults so times like this I can be more settled. Life! I hope I’m getting the parenting part right. . . . . . #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#parentingblogger #alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#parentingteens #liveyourbestlife#writeyourstory#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens #inspirationalwomen#manhattanbeach #losangeleslifestyleblog #photojournalist #40something #inspiringpeople #liveyourbestlife #writeyourstory #livefully #momsofinstagram #lifeuned #losangeleslifestyleblog #alifeofintention #manhattanbeach #parentingteens #momofteens #thehappylife #parentingblogger #loveyourlifestyle #inspirationalwomen #inspirationaljournalist #thisis40

🔹I saw this gorgeous ivy covered house and ran home to put on a pretty dress for a picture☺️. Cuz why not? Guys! I’m turning 45 in a few weeks. I don’t understand how I’m middle aged when my mind feels like I’m in my 20s. Can someone please explain this to me🤔?

🔹Back in full swing! Happy Monday. Let’s make this a great week! Side note- do you know much about @invisalign? I’ve been using the trays for over 18 months now.

🔹Definitely still feels like winter in the DC area! Felt good to be back to visit with family and friends but now I’m looking forward to going home! My husband and younger son took a bonding road trip along the Ca coast from San Francisco back to LA❤️. I’m learning family dynamics can be funny. It’s just as important to have one on one time with each other as it is to spend time as a family unit. In just the few days my older son and I have been together, I’ve learned more about him. There’s so much more I want to know but peppering him with too many questions doesn’t work. So I’ll wait for him to offer up info and soak up every word that has to do with emotions or navigating life as a teen! There’s no parent handbook on raising good people. Motivated, ambitious, empathetic, respectful, intelligent, loving, dignified, confident people who’ll choose women I like 😉🤣. God, I hope we’re doing it right. . . . . . . #familydynamics #parenthood #parenting #familybonding #familybondingtime #momofboys #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving#liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#inspireme#losangeleslifestyleblog #thisislife #photojournalist #40something #inspiringpeople #familybondingtime #parenthood #liveyourbestlife #familybonding #livefully #momofboys #parenting #momsofinstagram #lifeuned #positiveliving #losangeleslifestyleblog #alifeofintention #momofteens #thehappylife #inspireme #loveyourlifestyle #inspirationaljournalist #thisis40 #thisislife #familydynamics
🔹Cherry blossoms in full bloom in DC! I picked up my son from his @closeup_dc trip yesterday and we’re making the rounds to see family. Sometimes I can’t believe I have an almost 14 year old!

🔹I found a picture of me at age 3! What do you think? I’m in the Washington DC/Baltimore/Virginia area for a few days to visit family, friends and to pick up my son from his school trip. . Yesterday, I spent the day visiting Rockville, Maryland to each house I lived in and school I attended. It’s been over 20 years since I was last in my hometown. I was curious how I’d feel and what kind of memories would surface. . I remember a lot of sadness. On holidays and birthdays, I was usually by myself. My mom was so lost and broken after my dad passed (I was 9), she lost her ability to parent and kind of disappeared for days at a time. For a few years in high school, my brother and I lived alone when my mom moved to a different state. . I wish I could have told the little me not to worry. That everything would turn out fine. I spent so much of my youth dreaming of a different life, I lost my childhood innocence and carefree nature at an early age. . But I think that’s why I’m able to live life with such gratitude today. I’m taking all those lost moments from childhood and stuffing them into my adult life and living with all the wonder I should have had then. Life is beautiful, and I know it. I remember when it wasn’t. I’ve come full circle, and it feels good! . Look around. How has your life turned out verses what you envisioned? What would you tell the little you? Have a wonderful Thursday! . . . . . #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving#liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#southbay#inspireme#losangeleslifestyleblog#reflecting #thisislife #photojournalist #40something #inspiringpeople #liveyourbestlife #livefully #momsofinstagram #lifeuned #positiveliving #losangeleslifestyleblog #alifeofintention #momofteens #thehappylife #reflecting #inspireme #loveyourlifestyle #inspirationaljournalist #thisis40 #southbay #thisislife

🔹 Happy Monday, guys! I took a weekend staycation at home where I hung out with my family with 0 plans. . It’s fun to do nothing sometimes! It allows us to refresh, recharge and get some extra sleep. I finished a book, started another and watched a movie. . I also found myself often sitting and just watching my 12 year old son and husband interact (my older son is on a school trip). I love hearing him say “daddy”, knowing his voice will start changing soon. I love watching how comfortable they are with each other, knowing how important dads are for boys at this age. I realized my son and I are also close and he likes to hang out with me! Just a month ago I was wondering what I was doing wrong when we were constantly arguing and I was screaming, demanding respect. . So often when we move through life too fast trying to get stuff done, we miss important moments. Let’s remind ourselves it’s ok to slow down and do nothing! To just exist and be grateful for all we have. Have a wonderful week! . . . . #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving#liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#southbay#inspireme#losangeleslifestyleblog#classylook #classylady #photojournalist #40something #inspiringpeople #liveyourbestlife #livefully #momsofinstagram #lifeuned #positiveliving #losangeleslifestyleblog #classylook #alifeofintention #momofteens #classylady #thehappylife #inspireme #loveyourlifestyle #inspirationaljournalist #thisis40 #southbay
