  • It’s finally feeling like fall here in Texas but I’m thinking back to fun times this summer at our favorite ultra-accessible theme park! @morganswonderlandtexas and inspiration island! I love how everything is so well thought out so all 3 kids can play equally! Can’t wait to get back there for their Delightful not Frightful Halloween event! We go every year and it’s always a blast!! If your ever in San Antonio this park is full of fun for everyone! #sanantonio #familyfunday #sanantoniofamily #momlife #kidlife #specialneeds #specialneedsmom #specialneedskids
  • I'm an artist but also an introvert filled with anxiety which means I have the desire to create yet I'm almost afraid to try my big ideas .... this pic speaks to me as I've been feeling the urge to really focus and find my passion again.
Once you have kids they practically require you to set your hobbies aside and take care of those babies. But once the babies are school kids, I now have this great opportunity of time to really get back in the creative groove. But there's that big voice in my head holding me back... but I'm determined to get over it and give these ideas a try! #momof3 #momlife #momblog
