Why don’t we do a “tiny celebration” for the small steps we make every day?⁣ 🥳⁣ I will be honest and say I had some awesome news and exciting moments today and it made me realize… “Why don’t I change my attitude for the little things that I accomplish every day?”⁣ 😯⁣ Taking the time to be grateful and celebrate the simplest things, like getting through an 8 hour work day, working out for 20 minutes, or getting up early, can change a mindset.⁣ 👏⁣ Learning to cherish and appreciate the little things could truly change your attitude. ⁣ 🤩⁣ I tend to only appreciate the big and exciting changes in my life, however what about the small steps that will eventually lead to accomplishment of a big goal?⁣ 🚶🏽‍♀️⁣ See each small accomplishment as a step forward and appreciate the smallest things in everyday even if they seem a little silly. ⁣ 🤗⁣ What was your big or little accomplishment today?🎉

YOU have a powerful story to share. Your story can help women and girls around the world. Please help build our inspiring collection of stories by sharing some aspect of your journey to empowerment. There are no rules or requirements for your story. Anonymity: Your submission can be anonymous, if you wish. Length: Because women & girls so often feel restricted by others’ rules, there is no required length or limit to your story — it can be as short or long as you want it to be. Language: We invite you to write your story in the language of your heart and if that language is not English, we may have your story translated. If we do, both versions of your story will appear on the site, the original story and the translation. If you prefer to translate the story yourself, that would be wonderful (but it is not required). Dedication: You may choose to dedicate your story to someone who has inspired you or touched your life If you are not sure where to begin, here are some questions to consider in telling your story, but certainly not requirements: How/when did you first learn to accept yourself as the amazing person you are? Was there a breakthrough moment when you first recognized your inner strength? How did you learn the importance of believing in yourself? How have you overcome the unrealistic expectations of others? Or, not a question but a suggestion instead – you can choose to begin your story with the words, “I am amazing because…” We invite you to share your story email kris kreativelykris.com. Please note that while it is our intention to publish all submitted stories, on very rare occasions we do not post a story. Typically, these are stories where: (1) publication may increase the risk of harm to the storyteller; (2) the storyteller is advocating violence, hatred, or self-harm; or (3) the story is requesting funds, financial support, donations or purchases of some kind. While we understand the genuine need of many individuals and organizations throughout the world, we have created a place where all that is asked of women & girls is to share their inspiring stories if they choose to do so.

People always say you take fewer photos of your last/youngest baby. Not so for us. Our phones are full up capturing this sweet girl’s babyhood. The older two remind me how fast it goes.

I think of all the times I'm not motivated to do something sometimes it's this quote, sometimes it's the dishes but then instinct, or habit, takes over + I find a way to get it done, regardless of motivation. I think of the dedication I've had to this project this year, which probably means more to me than it does to most of you, + that's okay. I'm not motivated, I'm acting out of habit. I'm choosing every day to look for some connection to this world + this life through words. And if, by some happy circumstance, we connect along the way, that's just a super awesome bonus to this habit that I'm really committed to. What else could I make a habit if I put my mind to it? What about you???

My little whirlwind 💜 . Looking at these photos, the hashtag momfail comes to mind. Funnily enough, however, this moment was not a fail for me at all When we went away to the Drakensberg for the weekend two weeks ago, my husband left the chalet early to play golf and it was just Katja and me. I wanted to take her out for lunch, but I needed to shower first. Thinking I was super innovative, I placed three of her favourite books on the bathroom floor, sat her down and turned on the shower. Surely that would keep her entertained As soon as I stepped into the shower, Katja got up from where she had been sitting looking at a book, walked up to the toilet roll and started pulling on the little white squares. And you know what I did? I let her! I sat on the shower floor shaving my legs and watching her unravel the ENTIRE toilet roll. I didn’t shout. I didn’t get angry. I just let her enjoy her moment of discovery. She was so stoked with her results! 😂 . Obviously I’m not going to let her unravel every toilet roll she comes across in the future. But this time, I’m celebrating staying calm, enjoying my darling explorer’s curiosity and not taking life too seriously. I’m calling this a momwin 💜 mymommyteacherwifelife southafricanblogger southafricanmomblogger sablogger samomblog momblog momblogger mommyblog mamablogger momswhoblog momadvice dailyparenting documentingmotherhood lifeandlensblog bedeeplyrooted bestofmom eternalmotherhood habitandhome holdthemoments honestmotherhood ig_motherhood inbeautyandchaos joyfulmamas justmomlife letthembelittle momlifestyle momsunite motherhoodintheraw

From all the happily married people I’ve sat down with, they share these same sentiments: when it’s true, it will not confuse you. There is deep joy and deep peace when it is the one for you. I think it’s somehow related to how it feels when you’ve found your calling- you know that you know that you know. You don’t question it because of the amount of joy it gives you and how much it fulfills you. Clarity brings peace. So kung napakalabo nyo pa ni Kuya, mag move on ka nalang muna. Pursue your purpose first, then the Papables will follow. 😂

when my mind is too preoccupied with my own thoughts and doubts, i often find myself slipping into a downward emotional spiral. i no longer see myself as victorious even though i have victory over every circumstance through Christ. i begin to be demand-oriented instead of being conscious of the Lord’s overwhelming supply. this isn’t how i am called to live this life. as a beloved of God, i am called to live a life of rest, and the only striving i should be doing is to strive to get into this position of resting in Him and Christ’s finished work. / so now, when my soul is thirsting for invigorating, living water, let Your infallible word satiate every need that i have.

This season of life we are in is soI don’t even know how to describe it. It’s filled with SO much change. ⠀ ⠀ We’ve gone from seeing each other at most 2 days a week to being together {almost 24/7} & we’ve gone from praying & hoping for my womb to be filled to actually preparing for the life I’m now carrying. ⠀ ⠀ Two HUGE changes this year and I am sooo very thankful. This season of life is really teaching me that the Lord’s timing absolutely IS PERFECT. ⠀ ⠀ I can’t imagine spending my entire pregnancy without Colton close by. He’s been able to feel Truett’s hiccups & see his wiggles almost every day because of the timing of all of this. If he hadn’t been blessed by his new sprayer business opportunity, he’d be on the road & missing out on so much. ⠀ ⠀ It’s easy for me to look back now and see it all come together so perfectly. The Lord knew all along. HE IS SO GOOD! ⠀ ⠀ If you are in a season of waiting right now, don’t give up. Trust the Lord’s timing. I know it’s so easy to say that, but let my journey be an example & encouragement to you. The five years I spent waiting (crying, praying, hoping, wishing) for this were not wasted. ⠀ ⠀ In fact, I am SO THANKFUL for those five years. I learned so much about myself & Colton and I learned so much about each other. It was all worth it to be exactly where we are now. ⠀ ⠀ Trust HIS timing, friends. ▪️

Both spunky. Both headstrong. Both big sisters. Both with SO much thick hair. 🤣🤣 honestly, why couldn’t I win that genetic lottery? Jubilee is entering into bid sisterhood, or honestly “little motherhood” as I would like to call it. We even did a “mini shoot” with her babydoll today, and she was so tender to her baby. Tristan was always like a little mother to me, and now she will teach Jubilee to be the best big sister to Rejoice. It’s crazy how families have these timeless bonds. This forever complex connected and deeply rooted relationship we will never fully understand, but 100% are living it. Cycles that repeat, and cycles that are made new. I love all of it and I love that every family has that. It’s a beautiful mystery to me. ❤️ ⠀⠀ Photo of my beautiful sister and niece from today’s session. They will probably dominate part of my feed for most of this summer because I love them, but also because I am super proud of the moments we collected today. I hope you enjoy. 🌿✨ ⠀⠀ bedeeplyrooted eternalmotherhood habitandhome holdthemoments slowmotherhood thepursuitofjoyproject thefamilynarrative pocket_sweetness nestingly mytinytribe livethelittlethings dearphotographer littleandbrave aquietstyle aslowmoment capturequiet beautyyouseek darlingmovement inspiremyinstagram nothingisordinary meetthemoment thehappynow verilymoment katieweeksphoto atlantaphotographer portraitphotographer maternity shootandshare visualscollective antique

This evening I had the opportunity to hang out with one of my favorite families at their lovely home. I followed these guys around just documekMost of the session was literally just following them around in their environment and capturing details of their life. These are some of my favorite sessions and I think are some of the most powerful pictures that will grasp a Mother’s heart from years to come especially as our grow. As a mother of little ones a lot of time we are just doing good to make it to the bed at night and still thinking of all the things we need to do or we could have done better that day. We don’t give ourselves much grace. When those little ones become and adults though there are times we would do anything just to have them small again. I know I would. I miss them being babies sometimes.

It’s Monday night. A new week. Maybe with this week is a whole mess of things that bring you stress, worry, and anxiety. Keep in mind you weren’t meant to carry such a burden. Cast all of you anxiety, all your stress, all your worry at the cross. Allow Jesus to carry that burden. Take the time to breathe and focus on one day at a time. ♥️

|| How I take note of joy ||⠀ ⠀ For a long time, anxiety was my normal. I lived with tightness in my chest and racing thoughts most days. The anxiety hummed at a pretty consistent 9-10 on a ten point scale.⠀ ⠀ On the occasional day that peace came in, it crested in tiny little gulps—just a taste to show me how life would feel if anxiety left my body altogether. So in those gulping little moments, I felt like my senses were heightened and I had to lap up the peace with fervor. ⠀ ⠀ “Take it all in. Remember this. Notice the breeze through your hair. The bright bursting scent of the lemons. The rain drops on the library window. The rich taste that lasts on your tongue after you’ve eaten a small square of dark chocolate. The swelling fullness in your heart when you stand with your eyes closed and arms wide in worship. The sound of laughter from your dearest friend on the other end of the phone.”⠀ ⠀ Those mental notes filled up my tank. When anxiety washed back in, as I was used to, I quickly forgot what joy felt like. So I had to call it up. I had to close my eyes and force myself to remember the lemons, the breeze, the laughter. ⠀ ⠀ Even though today my anxiety is at bay, I love the practice of noting joyful moments throughout each day. I don’t have to bottle it up to save for my hard days anymore. Now I just let it fill me up and spill out of me. But I still take note, with gratitude.⠀ ⠀ “Remember this the heat on your back from the midday sun when you press your feet into the earth and climb upwards. The trickling sound of the brook below you. The way the little wooden foot bridge sways slightly, but you still feel safe and secure. The butterfly gently opening and closing its wings as it rests on a daisy. Your hand in his as you look at the blues and greens of the mountains in the distance. The feeling of coming home.”⠀ ⠀ Day 6 of hopewriterlife challenge: note hopewriters

Cody comes home every Monday with a little head tension. He usually takes something at lunchtime, because that's when he can't handle it anymore. Today he came home (and this is after he requested a ninja drink this morning 😂 a.k.a. Ningxia Red) + said he wanted to see if I had any magic oils to rub on his neck + temples. HECK YES. I finally have an oily believer hubby. Now just to train him on all the ways oils can support us 😜 He's working on homework right now, so I threw in an odd blend of oils, which actually work well together, into the diffuser. M-Grain to help with more of that head tension stuff (in addition to the Deep Relief, Valor, + DIY roller I already used on him); Patchouli (new to us!) for some of those clarifying thoughts + reducing obsessive + insecure thoughts as well; Grapefruit, Bergamot, + Lemon Myrtle (all citrus based) for GOOD VIBES ONLY. So basically we're over here having a rock star night How's yours??

I’ve decided there’s this very real thing called “Monday house”. It’s basically when my house has weekend hangover. (Please note: I said my HOUSE, not my household people🤪). I usually spend Monday morning clearing counters, doing a heaping sink of dishes, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, and toting the stuff back upstairs. 😂 Especially if we did projects all weekend. Plus picking up the tornado of stuff that somehow gets stirred up getting the out of the house for school. Don’t let this picture fool you. The downstairs is in order but the upstairs is still getting eaten by the laundry monster and all the things. Does your house have a Monday hangover on the regular too? (Also PSA Summertime can create Monday house hangover on any given day. 🤦🏻‍♀️ )

Do not let the pressures of social media or those around you pressure you to do what’s ‘better’ in their eyes but do what pleases God. ⠀⠀ We have all set out goals which we would like to reach and we WILL but do not rush yourself when you see somebody run past you or do not look down at somebody that is seemingly ‘behind’ because we all know that in this life we’ve been put in our own lane but this is not a race competing with others but it is a one on one race with yourself for God. ⠀⠀ In the bible in Proverbs 21:5 it talks about how good ideas pay off and bring you prosperity but when you put those ideas out there too quickly-prematurely and make hasty, impatient decisions it will only lead you to loss. ⠀⠀ Seek God, seek counsel from your mentors, pastors and trusted advisors, take notes, go over your ideas and make wise moves. “Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:22‬ ‭ ⠀⠀ Our ideas flourish when they’re approached wisely. ⠀⠀ Mothers oh mothers let’s continue to be steadfast for our families and ignore those inexperienced people who just don’t get it. “I used to babysit, I know what it’s like” Chile no! 😂 apparently all we do is feed the baby and then they sleep! ⠀⠀ Just remember that you don’t need to explain yourself, just know that raising is a lot + everything else you do. ⠀⠀ Your job is 24/7 and you’re the best at it - no one can do it like a mama can! ⠀⠀ The lesson here is that everyone has a purpose and we are all at different phases of life and if we stop letting the pressure of others get to us we will do so much better. ⠀⠀ Bloom where you’ve been planted - palm off those who try to pull at you from the roots and keep those who continually give you light and water you. ⠀⠀ Signing off, Wife, Mum, Boss & several other things. ♥️ ⠀⠀ bedeeplyrooted thehealthplug themummyhealthplug bossmum aussiemum boymum bestofmum habitandhome honestmotherhood joyfulmamas motherhoodrising teammotherly

Welcome home. Three weeks ago our church building experienced a “significant wind event”. Tornado, “significant wind event” however they want to term it, it basically damaged our roof. In those 3 weeks we had church in the wild, requiring us to be in a tent. However, we all knew that God was doing something, we just don’t know what it entails. Yea we were sad by it, but we knew what the enemy meant for harm God uses for good. What seems like a set back (because we definitely saw The Lord moving prior) will be an amazing comeback. This past Sunday we got the green light to be back in our house (part of it). And it felt like we never left. Yea, there’s still damage but we’re going to trust the process and know that greater things are coming💕

Did you guys catch my “About Me” story today?? I’m getting closer + closer to re-opening my business and I’m suuuper excited 💃🏼 While pregnant with our new little guy, River, I turned the living room of our 700 sq ft, 3rd floor, one bedroom apartment into a Reggio-inspired preschool classroom. Within a month of my official opening day in January, 13 families enrolled in my drop-off programs and at least a dozen more participated in my family events and Parent + Me Classes! In March, we made a last-minute decision to move to a two-story townhouse where my business would have more space to flourish. Since little River arrived five weeks early (three days before our moving date🤦🏼‍♀️), I’ve had a busy couple of months unpacking, adjusting to life as a mama of two, and prepping our new classroom environment! I expect to have four toddlers enrolled in each drop-off class (which I offer M-TH mornings), and I’ll also be offering family art + sensory classes which are suuuper fun + messy 🎨 Do you take your little ones to Parent + Me Classes? I’d love to hear all about your favorite classes!

Sometimes, you have to encourage yourself ❤️ It took me years to stop believing certain lies (I didn’t even know they were lies until I learned God’s Word). I didn’t know how to take control of my thoughts, I just knew I wanted to be free. I wanted to believe what God’s says about me and feel confident, not inadequate. So I wrote out some scriptures and affirmations, and read them over myself God used those cards to change me. The helped me grow confidence in myself, but more importantly in Him How do you keep your thoughts focused on God and His Word ? What do you do when you’re tempted to believe a lie about who you are or what God’s delivered you from? Leave a comment below! ⠀⠀ You can find these cards (and others) on my site or in my Etsy shop. They’re made to help you take control of your thoughts and walk in freedom and confidence. Link in profile.

As I get closer to turning 30, and this cultural stigma of "getting old" keeps creeping ugly thoughts into my head, I start to think about what I have accomplished or what I haven't. Sure, I have accomplished ALOT when I think about it. But man, this culture weighs me down with ads for crops tops, botox, lip kits, beautiful moms, etc. Sometimes we like to idolize youth and the media likes to make us think that everything fun happens in life BEFORE 30. But, I just believe there is way more to life than those first 30 years! I am excited to get wiser, to earn laugh lines, and to watch my family grow. So, maybe we can change up the flow of things? What is something you're excited to grow into as you get older?

I've fallen a bit behind. I didn't get in the writing I've wanted to over the past couple of weeks. I missed doing the HopeWriterLife prompts over the weekend. I haven't been as consistent in certain habits as I was before. I've given into temptation. And I don't really have a reason for it. I can't make any excuses. When this happens, when we fall behind, or miss some days, or give in to old ways, it's easy to feel like we're failing at life. It's easy to wonder, What's the point in trying? It's easy to lose the passion and motivation we had before. But God's love never fails. His mercies are new every morning. He is faithful to forgive. He is the Author who writes our story, and the Perfecter who rewrites our imperfections for His glory. So when we fall behind, or miss some days, or drop off, or give up, or give in, take note. Take note of what didn't work and repent. Take note what did work and renew. Take note of all the ways God is working in you and rejoice. In Christ, we can begin again. Not starting over, but starting anew. And He will finish the good work He started.

I keep saying things I’m terrified to say, like what happened to me years ago and how much it hurt me and brought shame upon my life. And how those things led me to make horrible decisions later down the road. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ And even though I’m scared, every confession and every layer I peel back brings a new level of freedom God always knew I needed. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Freedom from the shame of seeing pornography when I was way too , or how a man I trusted tried to assault me in my adult years. Or the bondage I lived in because I didn’t know my true value and worth. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Every time I choose to live unafraid and fearless by telling someone what happened, I’m reminded of one thing: I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So that’s why I’m here; that’s why I continue to share my story. So that someone else can be made free. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I refuse to let shame win. It kept me hidden and broken for way too long. And I know you’re out there, waiting to hear from someone in your same shoes that real change is possible. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ You no longer have to keep gasping for breath, wondering if you’ll ever be able to breathe again. You will. Just take one step. Tell your story, peel that layer back. Meet with Jesus, and live unashamed. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ bibleverseofthedayscriptureofthedaypropelwomenchildofGodchristianpostsbiblegraphicsproverbs31womangodspromisebiblicaltruthfaithquotesbiblequotesoulscriptsverseofthedaywellwateredwomenaspiringauthorindiewriterwomenofthewordliveunashamedshewritestruthbedeeplyrootedfaithbloggerchristianbloggergraceupongrace

The yummy concoctions you can create are limitless in making DIY body scrubs. It is necessary to scrub your body 2-3 times per week. You should never scrub more than that. The body needs exfoliation to remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and should be one of the most important aspects of your beauty routine. Not only does it help various skin issues but it also increases blood circulation which in turn helps you achieve healthy and glowing skin. Today we made sugar scrubs and it was so nice to come up with different types of scents. I think I made just what my body craves and I cannot wait to incorporate it into my weekly routine ✨✨

38 is off to a great start Started a devotional today and everybody is loving it It takes sacrifice to make all the things work but as a mompreneur you still have to follow God’s leading Sometimes it’s putting off a deadline to cuddle a sick baby. Or choosing to work late to have lunch with a friend. Maybe it’s working on Saturday so you can attend a mid-week event. Or maybe you wake up extra early to lead a devotional Whatever God is calling you to do today it’s okay if it doesn’t fall in the plans cause “The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” proverbs169 . Being intentional is about having a plan, but trusting him in the things that come up is key to peace. Knowing he is in control gives you confidence, you can get it all done Today in the devotional we talked about being intentional in you relationship with God. No matter what season you are in God sees the heart. You May be able to give an hour a day or maybe it’s five minutes in a desperate prayer for rest cause you are up all night with a baby. Either way if we make a plan and do our best he is faithful to give us what we need Like I shared with a friend. God will meet you in your obedience Tomorrow we take on our relationship with family that means and husband. It’s so fun to get into community and share wisdom and love. ♥️ givemejesus womenintheword biblestudy christiancreative lampandlight goodnewsfeed gritandvirtue wellwateredwomen bedeeplyrooted propelwomen shereadstruth liveauthentic intentionalliving intentionalmompreneur womenonamission shelaughsproject communityovercompetition boldbraveyou graceupongrace intentionality

Three years ago today, Pete woke me up in our tent at sunrise. He told me there was a whale on the beach, grabbed my hand, and ran me down to the dunes. We turned a corner, and he surprised me with the most beautiful proposal. Neither of us have any idea what was said in the moment, but as we sat there reading our bible, watching the sun rise together, I knew it was a moment I would remember forever, and a moment of how we’d define our lives together - Us. Simplicity. Prayer. Wonder. Love. Adventure. Awe. Gratitude. ⠀ ⠀ The fact that a total stranger captured the entire thing just made it that much more special 💛⠀ ⠀ It’s amazing to look back on this moment now as we snuggle our new little babe, just three years later. I can’t wait to tell her this story, and how clearly we felt God’s hand, love, and presence in every part of it.

They’re blissfully unaware of my gaze. And I’m blissfully wrapped up in their becoming. Watching these babies grow into real-sized people with real-sized ideas of their own well, it’s a kind of magic that can’t be explained. Please, clock, slow your hands. I need just a few extra minutes to take them in. ❤️ EDITED BECAUSE: My ornery teenager would like some 📷 credit. So, good job ikeoshea - you’re a real gem. 😘

| /PARENT RELATIONSHIP |⁣ ⁣ 5 THINGS ON MY MIND ABOUT SWITCHING TO HOMESCHOOL OVERSEAS (Part 5)⁣ ⁣ Oh man. This is a doozy. ⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ I think (dare I say, “worry?”) the most on how homeschooling is going to go in regards to my ’s relationship with Me.⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ I want so badly for this to go well! For me to be the vessel who ushers them into a strong family unit while finding their passions and loving God with all they are. Wow, yes, please! Sounds just right! ⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ Homeschool entrusts a lot to my hands and, as it stands however, I’m still not well-polished with the parts of my personality that are self-centered, controlling, and direct. (Dare I say, “harsh?”) ⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ If travel was my biggest motivator to jump on the homeschool train, then my difficulty in being patient is the motivation to never leave the platform for risk I might derail it all.⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ What got me over the pressure to be perfect and the fear because I’m most certainly not, was this reminder from the Lord: ⁣ ⁣ “Do not place your hope in any schooling method that you should be placing in Me.”⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ Backstory: The first time he taught this to my heart was just before my oldest son started kindergarten at a bright and shiny new international school- with TWO pools AND a FIFA certified soccer field. Surely, a place like this would produce awesome . ⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ Much like then, I had begun to put all my eggs in one basket. This time I switched my hopes from the two pools to getting the right study paired with just the right travel deal and 💥Boom💥 awesome .⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ At the end of the day idolatry can creep in whether I’m trusting in the bells and whistles of an expert international teaching staff or trusting in my ability to be cheerful, thorough, organized, and patient. Neither will be perfect. Neither will fulfill.⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ So with my expectations and pressures sobered, I hope in the Lord. Just as I pointed my to the Lord no matter how good or bad the days were at international school, I plan to do the same in our homeschool. My hope for my must always remain in Him. mrssharonrivers

⚡️ FLASH SALE ⚡️ Y’all living rarely does promos on the starter kits so this is so exciting. From now until May 31st, when you order your premium starter kit you get a 14 oz bottle of Thieves cleaner FOR FREE. allow me to emphasize THIEVES FOR FREE. The thieves household cleaners are game changers. Not only do they smell like Christmas, are non-toxic and all natural, they seriously work. And if you’re one sitting there thinking, “my cleaners work just fine” I’m sure they do, but have you ever thought about what chemicals are in typical household cleaners? I never did. If this is the spot you’re in, i strongly encourage you to download the “Think Dirty” app and see for yourself how toxic the products in your home may really be. I scanned our products at home multiple times because I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing. (For reference, YL thieves ranks a zero on their scale!) If you have ever thought about wanting to try the starter kit, the time to do it is now You don’t want to miss out on this saleI wish I could get in on this with you guys 😂
