”J can you come out of the water to take an Instagram with us?”
fall psa: @timhortons now has new strawless lid’s! this was such great news for me because I’m always on the run in the morning, and Charlie loves to take my straws and hide them. It’s also a green alternative to single use, non-recyclable straws! head on over to timmies to try them out today #ad #timhortons #gogreen #britthavenspresets #canbarelyseemyfeet
gonna wear sneakers only till I meet you baby girl! #thirdtrimester
my feed will forever be my family and cottage life. my two favs!
this summer has been kinda hard. It’s hard being a work-from-home mom. It’s hard being a mini humans personal chef, chauffeur, teacher, entertainer, nail clipper, maid, butt wiper. when I first had Charlie I just wanted someone to look me in the eyes and say “ya, this season can be hard. Like pull your hair out hard”. So here I am saying it to you fellow moms, ITS HARD. but they are cute thank goodness. *end rant*
Good night, stars. Good night, air. Good night, noises everywhere.
if your not at the cotty is it even canada day?
if you could see what I see, you’d be blinded by the colour
you are the coolest dada ever and charlie knows it. hearing her squeal and run to the door when you get home will forever be my favourite sound. because of you she will feel loved, safe, secure, confident and beautiful. she will understand the Fathers love through you first. this next baby doesn’t even know how lucky they are to have you! 👌🏻
a one year old can’t keep still enough to take a photo, but you get the message! 💛 #2under2
“ Oh you have a psych degree? What, can you read my mind? “
I get to have this one as a mom and I get to be this ones momma. I am blessed beyond anything I could ask or imagine! 💛 #mothersday
Haaaaaaappy 30th to my babe!! My ride or die, my safety, my provider, my love. This year will be the best yet, I can feel it in my bones. You teach me so much about loving others, being myself, chasing Jesus, and parenting. My birthday promise to you is to not use your special iPhone cord and use my own ... Your girls love you so much! I hope you feel extra loved today Xoxox
He traded his crown for a crown of thorns He picked up His cross and laid down His sword He stumbled down the road bruised and beaten for me Jesus walked the way of grief Hallelujah! On the via dolorosa! All my sin was carried away! And the power of Him was broken As He gave His life away He knew it was to come from the very start But his love for the world beat inside His heart He climbed the road of suffering to the hill of Calvary Where the saints would be redeemed. Hallelujah!
a memory etched in my heart forever 〰️ will never stop posting from this perfect day
this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down ... my little bff is one 💛
“A shame-free plan for embracing and achieving your goals”. it’s nap time so I have a chance to sit down + read! sooo excited to burn through this book. anyone read the first one? if not you need to! I’m ready to feel inspired all over again ✨
Ok, I did say that this year would be the year of mindfulness. Mindful of what I’m saying to others, to myself, what or who I spend my time with, but a big one was health. And I really have not done well with my resolutions 😬. This is picture of my last cup of coffee. It has got. to. GO. It makes me shaky, my heart beat faster, costs money, and dehydrates your body intensely. Also caffeine is a technically a stimulant, which I don’t want to rely on for fake energy. I’m excited to let it go for good! What are ways you get an extra boost in the morning? What do you use other than caffeine to keep you going throughout the day? Give me all the tips and tricks 💛
happy birthday baby brother! I can’t believe your 18. I love you so much! Your talented in every way, you think your funny lol, you succeed in everything you attempt, you put your mind to something and get the job done. Your the best uncle and brother I could ask for! Your one of a kind 💛can’t wait to see where these next few years bring you!
On this #Bellletstalk Day I woke up feeling rested, because I finally admitted I had anxiety that affected my sleep this year and got medication for it. I sleep like a rock and it has helped my emotions, my mothering, and my daily functioning. - I was able to show up emotionally for my daughter, because this year I worked through therapy to understand what sort of mother/wife I am and work through a traumatic life change when she was born. I finally admitted I had postpartum anxiety, and received medication for this season so I can function properly and enjoy moments with my daughter rather than living in fear. I have no shame in talking about it because I also take tylenol for headaches. I had dope drugs for my c-section. I take Reactin because spring hits my nostrils like a freight train. I am an advocate for getting help no matter what. - This past year my little family was rocked with emotion, change, + unpredicted stress that we could not have worked through without medication + therapy. - On this #bellletstalk day I encourage you to get help. Even if your thinking about talking to a professional for 5 sessions. Even if you think your spouse won’t join you. Even if you feel the slightest amount of “is what I am feeling normal?”. Even if other people are telling you to seek help and you do not see the need. Even if it happened when you were a kid. Even if it is super painful to talk about. Even if people tell you its fine, its not that bad. Even when you don’t know whats wrong. Trust your community. Trust your gut. Lastly, seek a professional. A licensed mental health worker. Someone who is an expert in their field. A doctor. A therapist. A psychiatrist. Forget their title, they are here to help you. Do not cheap yourself out with a “life coach” or “spiritual mentor” or even your “best friend”. Did your roommate go through 10 years of schooling to help you work through your breakup? I’m going to go on a whim here and say they didn’t … lol. - Treat your mind with the best care possible, because when you do this you will be your best self and this creates a ripple effect to your community. Let’s keep this conversation going. Isaiah 9:6 ♡
finally uploaded our Christmas morning photo lol ... I had all the intentions of sending out a christmas card but then ... Charlie/exams/work happened 🤣 I also bought matching jammie’s for us all but then left Charlie’s at my moms 🤦🏻♀️. so. Merry Christmas + Happy New Year from the Hartshorn’s! Believing big things for my husband, my daughter and myself this year. May God be glorified and be our everything.❤️ #betterlatethennever #reallife

There actually isn’t much change from yesterday other than a time stamp. We are the same people, with the same jobs, marriages, houses and families. It’s just the willingness of a state of mind, a hopeful chance to make another year great. This new year comes with a sign of relief. In 2018 we saw disappointment, failed job interviews, empty bank accounts, promises unfulfilled, loneliness and tears. We encountered confusion, had strong convictions, experienced our marriage being tested. A lot happened but (I think ) we came out stronger than we did going into the year. I’m determined to cling to my husband, hold my baby tighter, study God’s word with determination, and continue to wait on His mercy that comes new every morning. Wherever you are in life I hope you have a great year - you cling to those who care about you and find Jesus. ❤️
Christmas holds so much truthful promise for me. It is an ancient story that is very much alive today, stirring up a new thing daily in our hearts. A story of a young woman trusting the season God brought her in; regardless of how society viewed it. A trusting fiancée, staying obedient to his word and leaning on the Holy Spirit. The paradox of the long awaited Prince of Peace .. entering humanity as a baby in the simplest of places. I pray that you take time to read about the ultimate gift this Christmas. The gift of Jesus that we all do not deserve to be given ... yet is waiting in anticipation for you and for me. Without it my life would be very dark. Without it my husbands life would still be an empty bottle. Without it my daughter wouldn’t be able to live out the life she is called to. I know it can change your life as it has changed ours. ❤️ • “But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all people on Earth. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:10 • Please reach out if you are lonely/hurting/searching this Christmas.
seessssster is home for the holidays!! 👯♀️🎄
we finally got our first tree (last year we were abroad ) + it feels so cozy ✨I’ve cried about it being our first Christmas as a family of three more than I can say out loud lol
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not see it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” [Isaiah 43:18-19]
life goal complete: forcing my daughter to match with me! 😻 #zoominonthatlittleface
i’m nerdy but fall on campus is the best
my sweet pup, my first dog! you always made me feel safe, waited for me in the driveway late at night. scared the crap out of the mail man and protected me from coyotes on my runs. despite being the ultimate protecter you were always down to snuggle, share light night snacks and give drooly kisses. I’m so glad we got more years out of you than we should have, you saw me get married and I’m so glad my daughter got to meet you🖤
you make this life worth it, my sweet girl. everything I do I do it with you in mind 😍 #mamasgirl #obsessed #eventhoughyoupukeonme
we are usually covered in puke + drool but not tonight baby! congrats dan and liz 💛
we may not have mountains in ontario but man we have sunsets 💜
it’s you + me forever baby
we actually like the lake when we were in @gwpaulsen ‘s arms 🤷🏼♀️🌊
