13 Days of Self Love
⠀⠀ Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. It’s incredible the feeling we get when we realize we have achieved something we didn’t know or think we could do before!! For me it is going to social events and meeting new people, quitting my job to pursue my dreams and trying different activities I didn’t think I would excel at. ⠀⠀
How will you push yourself outside of your comfort zone? 📸 @kristenmckelvie

Many women who steam report no longer experiencing yeast infections, BV, HPV, or excess vaginal discharge (any discharge outside of ovulation). This is because the of the herbal steam carrying its disinfecting and nourishing properties to the pelvic region. The herbs get absorbed into the porous skin and are then circulated throughout the body in our blood stream. The steam works to loosen any discharge and disinfect the vagina.

Here are some fun facts you may not know about holiday gift giving:
-It may not be a surprise that women buy more gifts than men, but end up spending less money because they seek out the best sales. Whereas men buy gifts full price.
-68% of people confess to planning on return at least one of the gifts they’ve received during the holidays each year. -65% of people wait until the last minute to buy presents, making Christmas Eve one of the busiest days of the year to shop at the mall.
-Odds are the person giving the gift are more excited about it, than the person receiving the gift.
The best gift to us? Having you join us at our table for our Black Tie Christmas Dinner Party this Thursday, which is our LAST gathering of the year - link in bio!
Well we had quite the Sunday Funday... found out my dang sister has FLEAS! So I had to suffer and get a anti-flea bath along with my sister. Swipe to see the flea monster 👉.
Mom was having a great day cooking lots of yummy things until we found the fleas...she spent the rest of the day washing every single thing in the house including me and my sister 🙄 I always have to pay for my sisters mistakes 😂.
We were thrilled to attend our first market today at @sundaymarketatx! Here’s a little peek 👀 at what our table looked like - covered in beautiful vintage dishes pieces. 💖 A big thank you to everyone who came out today to support all the vendors and pick up some treasures for holiday gifts! Thank you for shopping local! 🙏🏼 #elevatevintage
There’s nothing better than enjoying a 5-star steak dinner made by my sweet husband while watching the @chiefs win!! #chiefskingdom ❤️

PUPDOPTION: Obi-Wan KenoChi
This was a true Christmas Wish come true tonight! We held our annual Santa Paws Picture event tonight and brought our sweet boy for some pictures with Santa to feature him this week and he ended up finding his forever family there!
His family couldn’t have been more perfect for him, it’s truly a love connection and we all cried as we witnessed what was happening.
These moments ♥️ these are the moments I treasure. I will probably spend the night wiping tears off my face as I think of how it all took place tonight. I know God has His hand in everything we are doing and tonight He spoke so loud and clear to all of us present and reminded us that that Love when shared is multiplied; that love floats with hope, that when we believe in true love, we never give up on Love even when the going gets tough and it’s difficult to understand the big picture. Love is worth fighting for; every single step of the way. Love is. And Love won tonight.
Obi-Wan was rescued in August the night before he was heading to a kill shelter after his momma passed away. He was in our rescue for 4months because he is deaf and is a senior so he hadn’t been chosen amongst the others but this beautiful family only saw Obi’s heart and the love he offers so abundantly. He has so much to give and he is such a sweet dog and the children adored him on the spot. It was absolutely beautiful to see ♥️ In my heart I know, Obi was simply waiting for this family. It reminds me of Peter Pan Poo’s adoption. These perfect senior dogs somehow get overlooked and we can’t understand why but when these dogs meet their person/family, it all becomes crystal clear. These dogs were simply just waiting for their true loves and the universe conspires to make that possible always when the time is right. These matches were meant to be♥️ Thank you Welch family for choosing Obi-Wan, for giving him a second chance at having a loving family to call his own. Welcome to our SoulFULL family♥️ We wish you a Very Merry Christmas together.

Thank you all so much for coming last night. What a great venue. We will keep this one in the rotation for sure.
Huge Thank you Fujifilm for the cameras and Matthew Weintritt for answering our questions. Also, Thanks to The Infinite Monkey Theorem for the fantastic location.
Thanks to those who helped me carry and put the gear away. I appreciate it.
Here is our very own Sheriff and his tough journey. He is so deserving, and so loving.. will you be his happy ending?!
His ideal home is with a screened in porch, someone to love, and if you have cats already, he prefers them of mellow nature.
Let's set up a meet and greet! E'mail us at ATXcatsdogs@gmail.com

Want to know a secret?! 🤭⠀
Rob and I’s Christmas Tradition the last 2 years was to go to Panda Express @officialpandaexpress on Christmas night because it was the only thing open. 😂 It made me dislike Christmas A LOT. ⠀
Last night we went to the annual Christmas Stroll in Georgetown and we ate, drank and sang the night away to Texas Country. 🎄⠀
It felt like HOME for the first time in a long time during the Holidays and it made me so happy to know that we were building new traditions together. ❤️ ⠀
If you are in the Austin area I recommend going downtown Georgetown for their Christmas stroll. It’s kid and dog friendly too. 🐶⠀
👇🏽comment below and tell me what your family traditions are?! ⠀

breathing dreams like air.
~ f. scott fitzgerald
stepping into a new year with trust and grace. honoring the intention, discipline, strength & focus it took to get to this moment
sacrificing everything I ever knew for my truth. following my heart and allowing the process to reveal my purpose to teach & lead
the most beautiful part about it is finally recognizing it for myself.
damnnnn. here goes 36!!! thank you.
I AM READY
I looked back through our posts from this time last year and found this gem. Graceann’s caption was so good, I thought you might like to see it again. Here’s to living the snack life with a little extra Christmas cheer. ❤️✨
12/6/18 - We basically designed our entire kitchen remodel over a dream of having a row of windows to enjoy while preparing 27 snacks a day for our kids. I’m so glad we did! Also, high fives ✋🏼✋🏾✋🏿 to anyone who can keep their kitchen clean longer than an hour with kids under the age of 5 in the house. You are a unicorn 🦄 ✨
