Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

There are many special memories I can share about my Nana. She was funny, brutally honest and had the most beautiful smile. And while I can go on and on about her to anyone that will listen (or read), I love to cook her favorite dishes so that my family remembers her through her recipes. Today, since it’s Yom Kippur, I want to share one of my favorite recipes, Nana’s Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Homemade Gravy. Head to the blog for the full recipe. .

AD: Our schedules just got a little bit busier. The girls have started taking music lessons! Falynn and Lucia are learning to play the ukele and Iyla is learning to play the piano. While they are loving every second of it, they get hungry. I always have to make sure they grab some water and a snack. Or in Falynn's case, lots of snacks. This week, she found my stash of @JackLinksJerky in the pantry and decided one wasn't enough. Good thing Jack Link’s Beef Bars now comes in a multi-pack! You can find them in the nutritional bar aisle at @Target. The Bars are made with 100% Beef. 8 grams of protein, 70 calories, and gluten free. I'd say she made a great choice! Have you tried the new Jack Link's beef bars? .

How would you like to win Dr. Seuss books, including the never-before-published Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum and art supplies? #ad My girls are very different, but the two things they can agree on is their love of art and their love of books.

In honor of the book being released, @drseuss is hosting a sweepstakes! To enter, submit your child’s artistic take on “The Cat in the Hat”.

Today is National Taco Day, so we've decided to share one of our favorite taco recipes. Technically, it's not a taco, it's a tostada, but it's just as delicious whether it's in a folded tortilla shell or on top of a flat corn tostada. Lime and cilantro shrimp with a zesty sauce will wow your tastebuds and will be a huge hit with your family! I’m sharing the full recipe on the blog today. Go print it and make it for dinner. Your tastebuds will thank you. .

Raising three girls is tough. They each have their own very different personalities. They don’t get along all the time. They seem to be in competition constantly. I can’t give a compliment to one without the other thinking that my compliment to one, meant I was insulting the other. And while I’m working on teaching them how to handle those situations, I can’t help but think that our female minds are wired that way and it saddens me. We are stronger when we support and encourage one another. So to all those girls out there who are busting their butts to make it, in a world where people are just waiting for you to make one wrong move so they can discard you, keep your head up. Find the people that will have your back no matter what. Surround yourself with others that care more about facts than gossip. And when you do find them, hold onto them, cherish them and have their back in every situation. Together, we can change the world. That’s the power when girls support girls. Have you found your tribe? Tag them and let them know what they mean to you. .

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.  We have 18 short years to teach them everything we know so that they don’t make the same mistakes we’ve made.  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.  Honesty is so important.  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?

    This is so nice and such a beautiful and great advice to hear from a mother. You and my mom have the same advice given to me since when I was a child.

    • Heather

      This is actually from their father ?

  • Courtney

    Such great advice. I didn’t have a role model or father figure growing up, and even though I never had it, I still missed it.

  • Porsha Carr

    I think my favorite tip was number 1-30 😛

  • Jasemine Denise
    February 27, 2019

    This is SO beautiful. I mean honestly, it made me tear up. I wish my dad was living so that he could give me his best advice. Thank you for sharing this. At 27, I needed a lot of this advice myself.

  • Kiwi

    I hope you print these out for your daughters to see. This will resonate with them for the rest of their lives nothing like a fathers love.

  • Tami

    Dad has given such wonderful advice here. My favorite is #10: “Know that everyone trips and falls and it’s ok. Just pick yourself up and keep going.”

  • Deanna
    February 27, 2019

    I love this list so much! #26 is definitely my fave.

  • Bill Sweeney

    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 isn’t so that they will “get a man” 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
    February 26, 2019

    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!

  • Marcie W.

    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 🙂
