Before we scheduled our trip, I made the mistake of asking people about their experience with @legolandflorida. {Hosted} I was told that it was small and more fun for toddlers. They said my 10 and 14 year old wouldn't really enjoy it. Even though Falynn was ecstatic about it, I was honestly expecting to be disappointed. I will be the first to admit that I was VERY wrong. We all loved it! There was something for each of us to enjoy and all three of my girls can't wait to go back! Our first trip to Legoland will definitely not be our last. Today on the blog, I’m talking about why we loved it even more than Disney! You can read all about it by clicking the link in our bio or swiping up in stories. .

Before we scheduled our trip,...

Imagine being in your home, taking care of your baby and suddenly being ordered to leave. Imagine being told you could take only one small bag and everything else would be seized. Imagine being packed into a cattle car for days with no food or water or even room to move. Just a bucket in the corner, to be used as a bathroom and a tiny window for ventilation. Imagine people dying on that cattle car, right next to you. Imagine arriving at a concentration camp and immediately having your baby torn from your arms. Imagine having a number tattooed on your arm, to be used as your “identification”. Imagine finding out your Mother, husband and baby were killed for no reason at all,  aside from the fact that they were Jewish. No, this isn’t fiction. This is what it was like for my Auntie Rose and millions of other Jews during the Holocaust. Today on the blog, I’m talking about how it affected my family, both the survivors and those that were taken from us because they were too young, too old, too sick or too weak to work. January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let’s use this day as a day to reflect on what happened, and remind ourselves that people are people, regardless of their religion, race, or beliefs and we should all treat each other with respect. Never again. .

After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Turning Tragedy into Wearable Art

Imagine going through a series of heartbreaking events… A difficult pregnancy, giving birth to twins who were only two and four pounds, losing one of those babies to SIDS and then years later, having the surviving twin diagnosed with stage-three cancer.  What would you do?  How would you cope? Could you take your grief and turn it into something positive? Maja Arnold did and this is her story.

Maja Arnold with her son Lukas

On a quiet night in October 2007, Maja heard a panicked cry from her husband that she will never forget.  She stumbled into the hall to find her husband crying and holding their newborn, Isabella.  She frantically attempted CPR while her husband called 911.  In a matter of minutes, their lives had become a bad dream that they couldn’t wake up from.  Isabella’s death was believed to have been caused by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Almost exactly two years after Isabella had passed away, they were blessed with another daughter, Ella.  Life finally seemed to feel more settled when one day in 2010, she noticed a bump on Lukas’s tummy. Testing revealed that her then 3 year old son had a tumor, the size of a baseball, on his kidney and was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer.  Through nine hours of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, Lukas remained brave.  Maja credits her faith to getting through what was obviously the toughest years of her life.  Lukas has been in remission ever since.

When Maja reached out to me on Instagram and I heard her story, I was compelled to share her strength, her talent and her passion for empowering others.   Not long after she first reached out, Maja sent over her sketch of a necklace that she was going to create for me, which incorporated our initials, H, N, L, I and F.  Seeing all of our initials together, in a modern piece, was unbelievable. I loved the sketch, but I never imagined that the finished piece would be even more beautiful.

“Working with people and their stories is the most beautiful thing that could have ever happened to me. When negative things happen, I can create healing through my art. When positive things happen, I can pass the happiness forward,” Maja says. “My clients share their stories with me…it is truly a blessing.”

My custom necklace arrived in a box and sweet little gift bag.   I couldn’t get it open fast enough.  I knew I would love it, but it was honestly so much more than I could have imagined.   I became very emotional, seeing a symbol of my family that I could wear around my neck every day.  I couldn’t think of a better gift.

It’s no wonder that brides-to-be, parents who wanted a symbol of their family and even others who were experiencing grief have sought her out. Each piece represents a personal story and transforms it into wearable fashion of the highest quality to be cherished for lifetime.

The necklace is sterling silver, a very impressive weight and is extremely well made since Maja works with a local artisan who handcrafts every custom piece she designs. It wasn’t long before it was on my neck and I was proudly wearing it everywhere I went.  I have gotten so many compliments on it (especially when they figure out what it is).

“I want to empower women and let them know that when they go through a hard time, there’s something inspiring coming on the other side,” she says, “even if they don’t know it yet.”

Maja’s designs are creations of love, inspired by the story of the wearer. The process takes about three weeks. Maja sketches and handcrafts each one-of-a-kind piece. In the end, the finished jewelry is a vehicle for each person to share their unique message.

For me, it came at the perfect time. Suffering from anxiety has kept me from traveling a lot and I was panicking about our upcoming road trip. The necklace was the perfect reminder that as a family, we could conquer anything as long as we’re together.

This necklace means the world to me and I’m so grateful to Maja for reaching out to me.  It’s a keepsake that will help me to remember that my husband and my kids are what gets me through each day.

As if you haven’t heard enough reason to check out Maja’s creations, a percentage of proceeds of all sales through MajaArnold.com are donated to Seattle Children’s Hospital, which she credits with saving her son’s life. Her “Giving Back” initiative is her way of providing support to families with children who are in need. I can’t think of a better cause and a better reason for you to consider getting one of her pieces for someone you love (or even for yourself).

    Reading at first makes me think if I will continue it or not since it makes me sad. But Maja’s statement: ‘When negative things happen, I can create healing through my art. When positive things happen, I can pass the happiness forward” makes me admire her. I hope every women will be just like her in terms of absorbing things like this.

    SIDS is such a heart-breaking reality. When my kids were babies, I hardly slept ’cause I always feared of SIDS. The jewelry is beautiful and I love that they were created for a great cause.

    Your story is very inspiring you are such a brave woman. I myself is also in that stage of trying to get pregnant but God doesn’t bless me yet with the angel I’ve been wanted for. But I am not losing hope and I will not stop continue living just because I don’t get what I want. Life is so short!
