Happy Holidays!!! 🕊
Our house is a little over a thousand square feet so this tree takes up half the living room. It’s worth it. 🎄 🌟
I thank God everyday that we all found each other. 💫 #adoptionislove
Curls straight from the heavens. Period. 👏🏻 @alexbluedavis takes amazing care of our girl’s crown.
THE END. We had so much fun the last two days with my cousins and their girls @disneyland but mother of god in heaven above I’m grateful they are back to school and the routine I’ve built for them today. All kids need structure, but after a few days, my girls really struggle without it and so do I! I met a man there who was carrying his eight week old baby. He was very smug when he told me he was bringing the baby because “he’s going to be doing a lot of traveling and she better get used to it”. I told him to wait until she hits toddler age, then pointed to the direction of my girls: all standing on the restaurant furniture, all screaming like their house was on fire. He suddenly looked nauseous. Its hard some days but I kinda love the utter and total humility having three toddlers has given me.
THE ROYAL COURT: Elena, Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine and Tiana respectively. Subject to change after nap. Ages: 4, 2, 5, 3, & 3.

“Mommy I have the perfect dress to go with this new jacket - Hold on!!!” She’s my very own Carrie Bradshaw. Next thing I know, she’ll be getting broken up with on a Post It.
“Mommy, I love makeup, I love jewelry, I love long dresses, I love MONEY and I love necklaces. These are the five things I love.” My 4-year-old is an aging Palm Springs drag queen just like her mother. . . . . #toddlerfashionista #rosebowlfleamarket #thriftingfinds #littlegirlfashion #fouryearsold #floppyhat #oversizedsunglasses #fleamarketfinds #fleamarketfind #kidfashiontrends #toddlergirlstyle #rosebowlfashion #girlsfashions #pasadenacalifornia #eastlosangeles #preschoolfashion
I felt so alone in our journey of foster care and adoption. I was worried I would always feel isolated in this “otherness” and so would my girls. But this year, all that changed. Im so grateful for new friends and their beautiful babies who truly understand our experience. 🙏🏼🌈🌸💕
🎶 🎼 “There was a time when I would have believed them If they told me that you could not come true Just love's illusion But then you found me And everything changed And I believe in something again My whole heart Will be yours forever This is a beautiful start To a lifelong love letter Tell the world that we finally got it all right I choose You I will become yours and you will become mine I choose You I choose You We are not perfect we'll learn from our mistakes And as long as it takes I will prove my love to you I am not scared of the elements I am underprepared, But I am willing.” 🎶🎵 @sarabareilles
Needed to go somewhere beautiful today. Grabbed the kids after school and spent some time with our feet in the grass. It felt right. 🌸🌱🌿🌼
My brave little mermaid has been killing her swim lessons lately, so proud. 🧜🏿♀️🌈🐬

Sometimes twins are formed in the womb but sometimes they are brought together by forces in the universe. My babies are exactly one month and one day apart. Since they were tiny they’ve been side by side. They love each other, they hate each other, and they take care of each other. I know that one day they will have to explain their special dynamic to classmates, romantic partners and people at the gas station, but I hope that they know this much is true: blood doesn’t always make a family, WE don’t even really make a family, a source greater than ourselves does. We are paired together through the cosmos with the people who are meant to challenge us and help us grow. And those are the ones we have to hold on tight to.
🎼 “Oh I beg you, can I follow? Oh I ask you, why not always? Be the ocean, where I unravel Be my only, be the water where I'm wading You're my river running high Run deep, run wild I, I follow, I follow you Deep sea baby, I follow you I, I follow, I follow you Dark doom honey, I follow you He a message, I'm the runner He the rebel, I'm the daughter waiting for you You're my river running high Run deep, run wild I, I follow, I follow you Deep sea baby, I follow you I, I follow, I follow you Dark doom honey, I follow you You're my river running high Run deep, run wild I, I follow, I follow you Deep sea baby, I follow you I, I follow, I follow you Dark doom honey, I follow you I, I follow, I follow you Deep sea baby, I follow you I, I follow, I follow you Dark doom honey, I follow you” - Lykke Li
My love language is annoying the crap out of someone. @alexbluedavis
“Wow. You have to print pics of all these outfits for them to have in future. They need to know how really cool they looked. They need to know how cool their mom is.” @tovaedann - It’s nice to know at least my friend thinks I’m cool. 🌈🌸🌿
This is us. 😭 Thank you so much to my sweet new insta friend @carmie100 for making us this gorgeous family portrait!! It’s my new favorite thing. Don’t you think she should sell these?! 🙌🏻
Even if it feels like the world is out to get us, we choose to live our lives in LOVE and SERVICE, because for us that’s the only way to be. @alexbluedavis
At first, having three little babies all at once had people questioning my sanity. And I’m sure many still do. But I had to believe that saying yes was the right thing to do. And I just kept saying it. Adopting through foster care has been a lesson in letting go and trusting that the Universe doesn’t bring me more than I can handle. Now I feel so lucky to have them all so close in age because of their truly amazing bond. Lately, they’ve even been entertaining each other for more than five minutes. Someone pinch me! 👩🏾🦱👩🏽👧🏾🙌🏻
All 3 girls started African Dance & Ballet at @officialdadance this week - THE PLACE IS PURE MAGIC. The girls loved it. 🌸
Happy 3rd Birthday to our baby! Because of you, I became a mama. My little angel. You love animals, cuddles, food, reading, laughing and playing with your sissies. You are our funny girl. You have the sweetest purest little heart, but you won’t let anyone push you around! Whenever daddy says you’re being bad, I don’t care because I love you too much. #happybirthdaybaby #adoptionislove
