I’m not usually the Mom who is super emotional about my kids getting older....and then this picture comes up as a memory. 😍⠀ ⠀ I can’t even...how are they getting so big?!?!? Anyone figured out how to stop time yet?? ❤️ #footballmom#boymom#middleschoolmom
We want to give a special shout-out to the Warriors SC 2007 and 2003 Girls for their performance at the Petoskey Autumn Blast last weekend. The 2007 Girls went undefeated in group play, posting a 2-0-1 record, scoring 10 goals and allowing zero. Unfortunately, they were locked out of the finals based on goal difference, but they finished third in the event and had a very strong showing. . The 2003 Girls earned a trip to the semifinals with a thrilling 2-1 comeback victory on Saturday night. After 2 Extra Time periods, the semifinal game ended in a 1-1 draw, and the team fell in the 7th round of a penalty shootout, inches away from a trip to the finals. . Both teams are coached by Maylani Siemasz. Way to go Warriors!
Why Each Day Slow? Because of moments like these, right here. . When I have a giant to-do list and Scott says "Hey, do you want to go have coffee on the dock?" Yes. Every darn time I want to say yes. . In a world of go go go I want to slow it down. I want to be present and intentional and right here. I want to feel and see and listen and notice the birds and smell the flowers and show gratitude, always. Being still helps, something that's not easy for an always dancing/hopping/using my hands to talk, gal 🙋🏻♀️Buuut I am determined to be alive and awake for this life and to make it one I remember, so be still I try. . This moment, right here, is a part of our story. I LOVE to think about that. It gets me way too pumped. The same feeling I get when I ball a piece of paper up and throw it like a basketball into the garbage and make it. You know what I'm talking about. . To slow down today, I challenge you to do this right now. Take 5 seconds, close your eyes, do a big breath in....and out...open your eyes. What do you see, feel, hear? That right there is your life. Pretty cool huh?
Tip 4. Drink more 😆😆😆⠀ ⠀ Water people. Just kidding on the wine 😬😬⠀ How to just feel better overall. We need to hydrate more, especially if we are breastfeeding or training more.⠀ ⠀ Did you know you slow your metabolism down just by being even slightly dehydrated? Mo water feel mo better.⠀ Try it, there is a lot of back and forth about how much you should drink and unless you are a competitive athlete or exercising in hot conditions, I see no reason to stress yourself more by calculating and freaking out if it doesn’t happen. But, keep a bottle with you and drink aallllll day. ⠀ ⠀ You will have more energy.⠀ ⠀ Your skin will look amazing.⠀ ⠀ You can speed up your metabolism.... bonus!⠀ ⠀ You will just feel better overall. And bf moms, it can help your supply as well.⠀ ⠀ Do you notice a difference when you aren’t drinking as much water?

My favorite part of your wedding day is when we get to hand you your bridal bouquet, a close second is the moment all the speeches are done and the formalities are over and you get to head out onto the dance floor with your lover and let loose. ⠀ ⠀ I'm Kalin, I grow a tiny tiny garden that has lots of flowers, I'm an award winning events florist. No storefront for us, we work here at our farm, a small 10 acre spot in Petoskey, MI where we don't really 'farm' anything- we just grow some lavender, flowers and our family. We've got a real life #tinyhouse that people from all over the world come to stay in and enjoy the area we call home. ⠀ ⠀ I married a guy who steals the blankets every night. Which is fine since on a 95° day in August he needs a quilt and I could sleep with zero coverings 365 days a year. ⠀ ⠀ I've got big feet and big dreams and little patience. ⠀ ⠀ My favorite beverages are; water, coffee, champagne, wine & kombucha. ⠀ ⠀ I'm a 3 on the Enneagram, a Taurus & my love language is Words of Affirmation. ⠀ I thrive on a deadline and consider walking around Whole Foods an enjoyable outing. ⠀ ⠀ I started this entire thing with absolutely no clue what I was doing and decided early on to just simply share the story of building a business, brand, farm & family. I just keep banging the keys and telling it how it is. I so so appreciate you reading and being here and commenting and sharing this account with others. ⠀ ⠀ I firmly believe the world needs more weirdos. So I'm just here sharing the story of one. ⠀ ⠀ Clinks and happy #fridayintroductions ⠀ ⠀ xo⠀ K⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #upnorth#northernmichigan#puremichigan#weddingflowers#weddingplanning#flowers#floraldesign#petoskey#harborsprings#traversecity#leelanau#engaged#theknot#mackinacisland#goodvibesonly#vsco#walloonlake#charlevoix#bayharbor#bride#bridalbouquet#sweetwaterfloral

Cold smoking is a technique we use often at Pour. In this case it is used to impart a subtle layer of smoked flavor without actually cooking the product. Take a look at our chef de cuisine, Marc Sorrell, cold smoking Jurgeilewitz duck for our current fall menu! #pourforus#jurgielewicz#menu#downtownpetoskey

No damn time! 🥴⠀ ⠀ So next tip on how to incorporate healthy stuff into a packed and insane day. Yesterday we talked about shortening our workouts to be effective and doable.⠀ So what next? ⠀ ⠀ Schedule into your day like it’s an appointment. Now there is always going to be days that it seems or maybe is impossible, kids have that effect ha!⠀ But if you plan, ok... get up drink a few slugs of coffee ☕️💞 and get it done! We are currently in the stage of our youngest not napping so I know that nap time may not be the best time to swing a kettlebell. So I try to do it first thing, and I get up just a hair earlier to do that.⠀ Of course, Isla sometimes figures that out and will start cranking earlier than normal. When that happens, I get her up and changed, then Baby Bum comes on for 20 minutes. ⠀ ⠀ Do I allow unlimited tv? No. But I also need to take care of myself if I’m going to take care of them. So they may get 20 minutes of tv. Orrrr sometimes I will get them their lunch, get them in their chairs and will do my workout in the living room while they eat.⠀ ⠀ Please moms, give yourself some grace. If it doesn’t happen daily that’s fine, just remember you are important too. ⠀ Do you have a trick for squeezing in a workout? Let me know....
