Bike riding ... itโ€™s something we do often as a family. #Ad But what we love even more, is finding companies that give back! We love @huffybicycles because not only do they have great options for the whole family to #LiveTheRide, but also because they have just announced a partnership with Childrenโ€™s Miracle Network Hospitals. And you can help! โฃ
โฃ
When you make a purchase on ๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ง๐˜ง๐˜บ.๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ, you will be given the option to donate to your local Childrenโ€™s Miracle Network Hospital. Huffy will match these donations, up to $50,000! โฃ
โฃ
Plus, they will be donating battery-powered ride-ons to the 170 Childrenโ€™s Miracle Network Hospitals so that children in the hospital can also experience moments of fun, even under difficult circumstances. โฃ

I'm a Florida girl... born and raised. So when the temperature drops, I'm honestly a little bit clueless. #sponsored Oh, and when we travel to places that have cooler weather... I never know what to pack to make sure we stay warm. I do have one must-have though... our @myroovia personal space heater. It's so small and compact, it can go wherever we go. Plus, when we get to our destination, #Roovia plugs right into the wall so we don't have to worry about cords or cables! I love that you can set the temperature, the fan speed and the timer for up to 12 hours. And for our cooler Florida weather (sometimes we drop to the 30's if we're lucky), Roovia is perfect for the bedroom or to take into the office! Where do you need a personal space heater? #WinterWithRooviaโฃ

Advice for My Daughters… Love, Dad

If You Love It, Share It!

We do our best as parents to teach our kids everything that they need to know to grow into good people. ย We have 18 short years to teach them everything we know so that they don’t make the same mistakes we’ve made. ย Then we pray that we haven’t forgotten anything.

Here is my advice for my daughters… Love, Dad.

  1. Love one another, even through the disagreements.
  2. Your family will always stand by you, no matter what.
  3. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
  4. Learn to say I’m sorry but make sure you mean it.
  5. Don’t judge yourself by the standard of others.
  6. Create your own definition of success.
  7. Set goals, achieve them and repeat.
  8. Don’t be afraid to jump in the driver’s seat.
  9. Play a group sport. You’ll cherish the memories and learn the power of teamwork.
  10. Know that everyone trips and falls and it’s ok. Just pick yourself up and keep going.
  11. Don’t live the life that’s expected of you, but live the life that is true to you.
  12. Strive to be a true leader in everything you do by having the confidence to stand alone and the courage to make the tough decisions.
  13. Always take the time and have compassion to listen to others.
  14. Perfect a silly dance and learn to laugh at yourself.
  15. Learn to cook and have a signature dish.
  16. Always clean up before you go to bed, so you will wake up and start the day in a clean home.
  17. Learn to love the skin you’re in.
  18. Pray in the morning when you wake, before every meal and before you fall asleep.
  19. Always tell the truth. ย Honesty is so important. ย A lie is a stone in your heart and soul.
  20. Never let a tragedy, circumstance or situation define you.
  21. Aim high. You can achieve anything you work hard enough for.
  22. Be kind to others. You never know what they might be going through.
  23. Always forgive, no matter how hard it may be.
  24. Give people an infinite number of reasons to love you.
  25. You may make mistakes, and that’s ok, just make sure you learn from them.
  26. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something and don’t be afraid to prove them wrong.
  27. Never settle for anything less than what you know you deserve.
  28. Try to see the positive in every situation.
  29. Learn to love the differences in others and learn from them.
  30. Be as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.

If you could give advice to your kids, what would you tell them?

    Your adorable daughters. Great piece of advise. It was so heartening going through each of them. Truly appreciate.Loved it.

  • Sam
    February 27, 2019

    This is really great advice for many people. I hesitate about #15 though; not all of us are skilled in the kitchen & some people use that as a way to shame others, especially women (we’re told we can’t get a man if we can’t cook which is absurd & shouldn’t be pushed in 2019).

    • Heather
      February 27, 2019

      We choose to teach our daughters skills they need in life, including how to cook. This isnโ€™t so that they will โ€œget a manโ€ but so that they can be independent and take care of themselves as they get older. My husband is actually the one in our home that does most of the cooking and this is how he was raised.

  • Theresa
    February 26, 2019

    This is such a lovely post! Great advice for all parents to pass down to their children. If more parents did, think of how much nicer the world would be to live in for everyone.

  • Danielle Wolter
    February 26, 2019

    these are great tips for anyone – i especially like the everyone trips and falls. it’s so true, but you have to drag yourself back up again!

  • Sara Welch

    Love that you have highlighted learning from the differences in others, and to be kind to everyone as you may not know what they are going through. This advice is spot on!

  • Jacque Hooper

    This is such inspirational advice to live by! You are doing a great job raising little girls who will become strong women!

    This is so sweet and solid advice for sure. I think 2, 17 and 23 are my favorite points.

  • Stacie
    February 26, 2019

    I adore this. I ADORE this! This should be framed and put in each of their rooms. It gives me all the feels.

  • Beth Pierce
    February 26, 2019

    I think you hit the nail on the head! Your very first piece of advice is so important. I don’t have a great relationship with my sister (not my choice), and it can be hard. Your girls are lucky to have you!

  • Jaye Shields
    February 26, 2019

    Great advice. I have a younger sister but because of the age gap, we’re not super close.

  • Sam | Away She Went
    February 26, 2019

    These are great lessons for kids and adults! I’m still working on some of those (I need a signature dish). My parents were always big on telling the truth and taking responsibility for your own actions.

  • Marta Rivera
    February 26, 2019

    Like Dad said, “Always tell the truth.” A woman is only as good as her word and her honor and that is something that this world today seems to take for granted. Tell the truth- even when it’s hard.

  • Paula @ I'm Busy Being Awesome
    February 26, 2019

    So many good messages from your husband, love the 15th ahah

  • Mimi
    February 26, 2019

    This advice is beautiful. My dad passed away a few years ago but I still keep his lessons close to my heart

  • Sandra
    February 26, 2019

    What a lovely post! As a parent myself, I have to agree, all of this advice is bang on ๐Ÿ™‚
