Be strong, be fearless, be beautiful. And believe that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.

This morning while I was out taking a group of students to the park, I took a moment to take in the smell of wet grass and let the cool breeze gently hit my face. I've been failing to pause lately, and this morning was a reminder that if we are unable to find reasons to be happy right where we are, we won't find happiness in the next job, in the next relationship, or in the next business venture. Life has been giving me some valuable lessons lately, lessons that aren't pretty enough for an Instagram grid. And in the past, when life got hard, my immediate response used to be the easy way out, the "flight" response. During this season of life, I'm learning to "fight." I'm learning to fight for what I want, what I believe in and for the person I want to become. Fighting, in that sense, has become my new way of accepting challenges, having patience, consistency, and respect for myself. Today, I hope you decide not to flee from the difficult moments, but rather let them teach you what you need to learn. I hope that you also fight fiercely for your happiness, remembering that you always have reasons to find joy, right where you are.
Taking care of me these days, with the help of @careofvitamins. (Use code: TINA25 for 25% off your first month if you want to join too.) I’ve always slacked when it comes to taking vitamins because I get so lazy. But I don’t think it can be any easier than these customized individual packages.
Backstory: I asked on my Story a while back about what vitamins you guys take (and why) and I got so many great responses back. The number one response was a good probiotic, so that’s in my daily mix now. Also in there: vitamin d, magnesium and elderberry.
Here’s to a year of upping my self-care game. #ad#careofvitamins
Beach vibes every day here at the moment! 🌊✌🏼 I tried something a little more ‘realistic’ - but not sure about it yet.. perhaps I overworked it? I did a time lapse video of making it so that I could see when I should have stopped! Would anyone like to see? If so I’ll post it later ✨ right now we’re off to the beach (before the cyclone hits!)

This is my sanctuary. When you are a busy mum it’s important to remember to take time out for yourself. Also to do things you enjoy; life is not all about making cupcakes and play-doh you know! So on top of my Instagram obsession, I have recently taken up learning the Ukulele, and I’m loving it!! I try to pick it up at least once a day. 🎼

All over volume - BOOM!
Quick tip: Apply Twice As Thick 💜before blowdrying all over damp hair and blow dry with your hair upside-down to achieve. Then of course finish with Texture Takeover for even MORE added volume!

I have a vegetarian skillet but please add bacon 😂
Growing a human is exhausting, but honestly I am enjoying every second of it.
Am I allowed to say I’m actually enjoying this pregnancy? Well, I am! So many people ask me if I’m over it yet with about 7 weeks left. I tell them, “Honestly, no. I’m having a blast at this very moment.”
All of it hasn’t been amazing: some parts have been pretty tough. The queasiness, food aversions, eating junk for 5 solid days (I paid for it - BIG TIME). Hurting hips, the sore back, & the swollen feet. If it’s on the floor, leave it there. The round ligament pain. If it requires zipping, forget it.
Today my energy levels are starting to tap out & I am moving a little bit slower, but when this little girl kicks & reminds me she is still being perfectly knit together inside me, I can’t help but to smile & be thankful to the Lord for choosing me to be her mama.
Late night options are calling our name. And this taco from @jalapenosav is at the top of our list!

When I first came to this beach as a little girl it was silent. A few local kids playing in the sand, a couple tourists snorkeling, but peaceful and still with only the sound of birds chirping and gentle waves hitting the shore. Of course I should have known that a white sand beach couldn't stay an undiscovered secret for long. Fast forward 15 years and what was once a long stretch of mostly empty beach is now lined with resorts and full of tourists, even busier than this when cruise ships are docked.
It was bittersweet to visit today. Ultimately I know that tourism is the life blood of Roatan, and this industry is good for the island's people. But I can't help missing the days of untouched paradise.

After years of praying, lots of tears, trying to stay hopeful, & supporting each other, God has blessed Brian and I with a miracle we’ve waited so long for. We’re beyond excited to say baby Lee is coming In August. 👶🏼 What a happy Chinese New Year it has been!

🌀Getting our daily steps while sightseeing. 🐌
Just like this lighthouse staircase, we all have twists and turns in life, but we must keep on moving forward and enjoy life because it is part of our story ❤
Oh my gosh you guys! I’m super thrilled to share this one with you today. It’s definitely one of the LARGEST wood rounds I’ve ever done and I seriously love how it turned out. 😍 I wish I could keep it for myself, but it’s on its way to its new home. If I come across any more huge pieces like this, what should I paint on them?! I’d love to hear your ideas!

✨ It’s Monday! The start of a new week. What is one thing you MUST get done this week? And then let me know how you’re celebrating once you do. For me, it’s welcoming in the new Instagram for Artists students this week before the doors close this Friday. How will I celebrate? 🤔 Hmm, that’s a good question! I think I will celebrate with a museum date. That’s my weekly goals, what are yours?
