In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

Trigger warning: Abduction 
Courageous is not the first adjective I'd use to describe myself. I don't open up easily, especially when it comes to traumatic events in my life. But what blogging has taught me, is that writing can be cathartic. It can free us of the fear we hold onto. So I write. Mostly for me and my mental health. I don't always share the posts. I have over 20 drafts that will probably never be published. But there are some subjects that are important enough to share, so that other people don't make the same mistakes I do.  This particular situation has taken me almost twenty five years to talk about. Very, very few people, family or friends, have heard this story. I think it was something that I tucked away because I was ashamed of myself and afraid of what might have been. Let me start by saying, I knew better. I was raised with common sense and knew the dangers of the world. So the decisions I made on this particular night weren't something I was proud of, let alone, wanted to share with people... until now. One of the scariest nights of my life, which only seemed fitting to share on Halloween. I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the blog and read about the night I was almost abducted.

What to do for Migraine Relief

If You Love It, Share It!

There was a point in my life where I had no idea what a migraine was or how it felt to have one. I had family members and friends who suffered from them and told me how horrible they were, but I couldn’t sympathize with them because I had no idea what they were feeling.  And then I got pregnant.  It’s like I became a Mom and the ailment fairy dropped a bunch of beautifully wrapped packages at my door, one containing all the migraines I could handle.

What is a Migraine?

According to the Migraine Research Foundation, just about everyone has headaches. But contrary to popular belief, migraine is not just a bad headache. It’s an extremely incapacitating collection of neurological symptoms that usually includes a severe throbbing recurring pain on one side of the head. However, in 1/3 of migraine attacks, both sides are affected. Attacks last between 4 and 72 hours and are often accompanied by one or more of the following disabling symptoms: visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face. Of course, everyone is different, and symptoms vary by person and sometimes by attack.

I remember that first migraine like it was yesterday. I was sure it was just a headache but it got worse as the time went on. Noise bothered me. Light was unbearable.  I just wanted to hide under my covers and fall asleep. It was like nothing I had ever felt. It took my entire day away from me.  I couldn’t work. I couldn’t eat.  It completely debilitated me.

How Do You Get Relief?

Someone on social media suggested freezing the migraine, so I bought an ice pack and placed it directly on my forehead. I even tried to eat a popsicle really quickly to give myself brain freeze.  I had my kids or my husband rub my temples.  While both offered a small amount of comfort, neither provided long term relief. Aspirin didn’t help. The other over the counter meds had too much caffeine, so I couldn’t sleep.  I drank more water. I tried peppermint essential oils.  I even got blood tests to make sure it wasn’t something more serious. You name it, I tried it.  And still, at the worst times, a migraine would show up and ruin my entire day.

I considered asking my doctor for some sort of medication, but knowing that there is a risk that they can lead to substance abuse and dependence, I was determined to find another option.

Internet searches brought up a lot of the same suggestions including:

  • Rest
  • Massage
  • Heating Pad
  • Meditation
  • Caffeine Free Diet (this one particularly made me laugh since so many migraine medications contain caffeine)

Introducing MigShield

In May, I got an email asking if I’d like to try a new natural solution to migraines from Quantum Health. [amazon_textlink asin=’B0773PZQ4G’ text=’MigShield’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’us-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ad693cea-9b89-11e8-966c-edd2bd809cb5′] is formulated with CoQ10, Magnesium and Riboflavin, all critical ingredients proven to relieve migraines. I agreed to try them for 2 months because, I had pretty much exhausted all other options at that point.

So here we are, 2 months later.  I’ve only had one migraine since I started taking them which is a definite improvement over the previous 2 months.  Since they are all natural, I don’t have to worry about what I’m putting into my body and more importantly, there is no addiction risk involved. [amazon_textlink asin=’B0773PZQ4G’ text=’MigShield’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’us-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ad693cea-9b89-11e8-966c-edd2bd809cb5′] has fit in perfectly with my daily supplements and gives me hope.

Do you suffer from migraines? Comment below and let me know what you do for relief.

    Nice post… I have been suffering from migraine for a long time.. Recently found that it was due a symptom of me being histamine intolerant. For me keeping away from high histamine foods, stale foods, anything high in citrus has helped me.. Also, taking MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) daily has helped a lot.
    I found this blog very informative : https://mummyandchild.com/intolerances/histamine/

    I know a handful of mamas who deal with migraines on a daily basis and it’s not fun. I wonder if any of them have tried this before.

    I suffer from horrible migraines. Over the years I have tried everything that supposedly helps migraines. The only thing the remotely helps is a hit rice sock, Tylenol for pain and benadryl to help me sleep it off, and a dark and quiet room. I will look into the MigShield for relief. Sounds like it works!

    I do suffer from migraines and I take about 4 paracetamol tablets at once when this happens. I will certainly dig into looking at Migshield a bit more because I know how bad migraines can get.
