In the glow of all these beautiful butterfly specimens ☺️🦋🙌 This is from the @auduboninstitute
Insectarium's "Colors of Beauty" exhibit. I could spend hours here and in the Butterfly Garden 😍🥰❤️ Butterflies make me weepy, in a good way. They are 💯 my most familiar animal and being around them makes me so emotional 😭 It's a bit overwhelming. I had the same emotional response in the Colors of Beauty & Butterfly Garden 🦋🐝🕷 that I had when I first walked into Emily Dickinson's bedroom 🖋 so overwhelmed that I'm moved to tears 💗 My soul just can't handle such beauty, I have to cry a bit to let out the spirit-nourishing steam 😊 If you can't see, I'm wearing brooches featuring a bee, a butterfly, a spider & flowers and I am wearing butterfly earrings. Not pictured: butterfly shoes.

A Sunday self ❤️ note to our #Saroka
beauties - You’re BEAUTIFUL, but not like the girls in the magazines. You’re beautiful for the way you THINK. You’re beautiful, for the SPARKLE in your eyes when you TALK
about something you LOVE. You’re
BEAUTIFUL for your ability to make other
people SMILE. No you’re not beautiful for
something as temporary as your looks. You’re BEAUTIFUL DEEP DOWN TO YOUR SOUL ✨ Words via - F. Scott Fitzgerald

katbakboogie + A little reminder now live on our stories that beauty truly exists in all forms xox
Today I was reminded that your attitude can make a good situation bad, and a bad situation good. Going in with a negative attitude to something that you don’t want to do will only make your feelings on it worse.
As you all know, Matt & I are civilly married. Our civil marriage was in my faith mostly because I was the one planning the wedding. Matt is Catholic & I am Pentecostal. 99% of the time this changes nothing, but in this case our marriage wasn’t recognized by the Catholic Church. There’s much more to getting married in the eyes of the Catholic church than mine.
One of the necessary steps to having a Catholic wedding is attending a premarital class, a 9 hour premarital class. My attitude from the moment I heard I had to devote an entire Saturday to this was very VERY poor. I was convinced that it was going to be a couple of Nuns who have never been married before, preaching at us for 9 hours straight. Matt would fall asleep for sure and I would’ve added $979.85 worth of crap that we don’t need to our Amazon cart.
I thought for sure that no one would attend these things and I was hopeful we’d get there and they’d see it was only us. They’d throw a couple of pamphlets our way and we’d be out by 9AM.
Boy was I wrong!! It was hosted by 2 couples who have been married for many years and deep in their faith. They shared so much valuable knowledge. The exercises were entertaining and enlightening.
I was dreading this class from the moment I learned we had to take it in order to have our Catholic wedding. Instead of taking this as a positive way that we can grow closer together and in the Lord, I chose to look at it as losing my own time. I was being selfish and ungrateful. It was a humbling experience and I’m so grateful we were able to attend!
This is something I’ve struggled with for soooo long! I still have clothes hanging out in my bedroom that I keep telling myself “once I lose weight, I can wear that”. And every time that thought crosses my mind, I only spiral into a negative pattern of thinking about how much weight I’ve gained (even though I do blind weights, so I don’t actually know), about how I could let myself grow out of those clothes, and so on. And we all know where that leads......back to disordered behaviors. So please! Get rid of those clothes that don’t fit you anymore. Get rid of those clothes that you keep telling yourself you’ll fit back into eventually. Keeping those around is only one of the most toxic things you can do to yourself. While I’m off of work this next week, I plan on donating all the clothes that spark those thought patterns. Join me.
Oversized sweatshirts are my favorite 🖤🖤💖
I asked, what’s the wedding dress code?
“show out, come clean”
So how did I do? ——————————————————————-
