It's estimated that 1 in 5 children in the U.S. will experience the death of a loved one before the age of 15.
On Children's Grief Awareness Day (@childgriefday), we are grateful for our experienced, compassionate Grief Support Services Managers, social workers, clinical staff and volunteers who guide children through their grief journey. #HospiceMonth#CGADHope

It’s here! .
The @grwinefestival kicks off today through Sunday! Last night our team was fortunate to be invited to the media preview event where we spent 3 hours tasting many Michigan based restaurants, wineries, distilleries, and confectioners!
You might be asking what does wine, food, beer have to do with Cars? Everything! We all enjoy great food, drinks, experiences, and cars! .
This is also a tease in the direction of what we are working diligently on for the 2020 “Cars and Coffee Grand Rapids” season, and we are excited to be bringing the entire Michigan automotive community with us on this journey!
So come out this weekend to the @devosplace where will be enjoying everything the festival has on tap, for $15/person daily, you can join us! And if we see you in one of our shirts, you might get a little surprise for the continued support! 🏎🏎
See you this weekend! .
#tbt to this guitar, which was one of my first commissions. This beautiful and sentimental instrument had a warp and was unplayable, so we turned it into a piece of art. It is still one of my favorites. 💜
We can start over as many time as we need to! Breathe in; breathe out. Begin again. And again. And again.

God has blessed us with a house to call a home after a long, emotional, difficult search. We may not have cable and internet yet, our boxes are everywhere & half unpacked, we might not have any groceries, but we are finally home. 🏠
A huge shout out to our realtor @meet.liz — if you’re looking to purchase a home, we highly recommend this lovely soul. She was an absolute joy to work with these last 10 months!

💚💚Emerald City!! 💚💚 I’m kicking myself for forgetting to take her before picture (she was a heavily highlighted, golden blonde when she came in!) and I learned that it’s nearly impossible to truly capture what this color looked like when it’s pitch black outside (natural light is necessary!), my client may have wanted to kill me for moving her all around the salon and trying every possible light and angle I could think of but she was a good sport and after 5 1/2 hours of work I’m thrilled with the results and the pics!!! Seriously, this green SPARKLED, it was so beautiful, the whole time i was blow drying her hair i was in awe of the incredible shine! It absolutely earned the name Emerald City!
You see a doll strapped into a carseat. I see gratefulness.
Tonight I went to someone’s home to check their carseats. I’m grateful that this couple trusted me with the safety of their precious child.
Which got me thinking how grateful I am for all of the birth and postpartum clients I work with, and all of the people I get to help with breastfeeding, childbirth education, carseats, placentas....you name it.
But those that trust me with their labor, birth, and postpartum period....how grateful I am that you allowed me to enter your sacred and vulnerable space.
Labor and birth....a small period of our lives that can have the biggest impact on our future...a time we never forget. You let me in. I never forget those moments of your labor, seeing your baby for the first time...and all of the “I couldn’t have done it without you” knowing all along that YOU did it. Not me. I was merely a witness to your strength.
And those postpartum times...those times where it’s ok to be vulnerable and speak your truths. There is no pretending this is a walk in the park. But I’ll let you pretend it is until You trust me enough to let those walls down. We create a safe space, a bond...together. I follow your lead...letting you rest or get work done so that you feel productive....whatever it is that you need that day. Sometimes it’s sleep, sometimes it’s help with breastfeeding...chores and housekeeping, holding your baby or playing with an older child. But how grateful I am that you allow me into your home. Your sacred space. I will never forgot the families I work with; the ones who let me in during the busyness of their days or the ones who I visit at night to let them sleep. Thank you for trusting me. I am grateful for this doula work. 💕💕
Normally, my workspace is at my kitchen table. Right now, I am at my coffee table cranking out some things as I catch up on some shows. .
But, really, I can literally work from anywhere!

Dreaming of rainbows, sunshine and queen bees...💫 Queen rearing is one of my favorite aspects of beekeeping. These colorful nucs hold the magic! 🐝🌈👑

Queen Louise II is following in her Mama’s footsteps. 👑 Her colony is so gentle. Add beautiful brood patterns/strong honey production, and you have yourself a keeper. Long live the queen!🐝👑

Three days after the queen bee lays an egg, it hatches into a tiny larva. Larvae grow at an amazing rate, shedding their skin up to five times a day. (Thank goodness for the amazing nurse bees that do such an incredible job tending to the young!) Within five days, the larvae are over 1,500 times their original size! At this point, worker bees seal the larvae within their cells. Once sealed, larvae are termed pupae.
After only 12 days, the new adult (female) worker bee will chew her way out of her cell and join the colony. Although she is often referred to as a “baby” bee, due to her fuzzy appearance, this is not the case. She is a full grown adult bee, ready to take on her first role in the colony.
How amazing that the development of a female worker bee only takes 21 days! 🐝💚
“Yoga is a science that provides a path for spiritual transformation and achieving higher levels of consciousness of the ultimate reality of divine presence. By bridging yogic principles and practices into a practice of embodied Christian spirituality, one can discover the kingdom of God within and open the whole self to the experience of spiritual awakening and transformation into Christ Consciousness” -Yoga Mass @fabletics 🧘🏼♀️🤸🏼♀️ #fableticspartner#moveinfabletics#ad
