How we were spending the day after our wedding 👰 🎩 Part I. It was really a great idea to go to the mountains. The first one was #Tibidabo ⛰️ The Temple and amusement park are on the one peak. Awesome views and a lot of WOW-impressions. #tibidabomountain #tibibus #tibidaboamusementpark #tibinet #tibilove #kateserj #barcelona #catalonia #ourjourney #photo #neoghotic

We all fight different battles, sometimes our battle becomes overwhelming and you have to remember you will get through it. You were given this mountain to climb because you are strong enough to handle it. Sometimes I do not feel strong enough but I always get through it, maybe with a few more scars but I get through it. I am married to a man who has become disabled over the last few years. He battles severe pain, disappointment in himself for not being the person he feels he should be, sometimes can’t even button his own clothes, feels inadequate and less of a man but I still see the man I married. I battle seeing his pain, seeing his frustration, learning to take on the role of single provider, part caretaker. Your relationship changes, roles reverse but the love never fades. Watching some one in pain and not being able to do anything about it is a battle in itself. You do not know what life will throw at you, you have no clue what new battles you will still face. I am the type of person that looks for the good in every situation. Sometimes it’s hard to find but it is there. Yesterday was beyond frustrating for me but at the end of the day I sat down and reminded myself I have a beautiful life. I still have my husband, he still has a lot of life left to live. Some days harder than others but he is alive and mine, that is what matters the most to me. I can’t always see his pain and have no clue how to help him but I am always always here for him. Maybe frustrated and a bit bitchy but I am here. My worst part of this battle is knowing I can’t fix his pain. I have been repeatedly told I am strong and amaze people for what I go through but I am not the strong one, he is! I am not the amazing one, he is! He is the one in physical pain, he is the one fighting the biggest battle. He amazes me! This is really his battle that I am just fighting along with him. Shoutout to everyone of you living with a disability of any kind. You are amazing!!!

THANKFUL THURSDAY //
-
14 weeks ago....I had prayed everyday for you for quite sometime, I wondered if maybe you just weren’t apart of our plan...I tried to be as thankful as possible for the blessing we already had, but my heart ached for another...I wanted so badly to make her wish of having a sibling come true...I remember in this moment as we were taking this photo...I asked God for whatever was meant to be, to be and told him I’d put my faith in him...what I didn’t know was...you were already with me, with us! 🙏🏼 #ourjourney

#tbt To our homeschool journey, to homeschooling with friends, to tea ☕️ parties with our homeschool families, to our old home...lol...oh how things children miss you, House 🏡!!! Before I homeschooled, It wasn’t what I planned. As a matter of fact, I was thinking 💭 when my baby girl turned three, I was about to put her in that all day head-start program. Then I was going to have me some “me-time”!!! Because by this time all three of my children would be in school. This whole parenting and marriage thing, well yeah, it was not going as planned and I needed a break! Then there was a tugging on my heart to homeschool 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️. I was thinking, what do you mean, I’m about to have some “me-time”! To say the least, I answered the call! Now, I could imagine NO OTHER WAY!!! Thank God for courage and obedience because my little brown children win!!! They have a chance and so do I!!! #ourjourney #homeschoollife #homeschoolers #unschooling #selfdirectedlearning #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolingwithfriends #homeschoolmom #momlife #widow #thebougiepioneerwoman

#tbt To our upside down way of learning. Our journey has been pretty amazing. As I’ve homeschooled over the last six years,it’s been an intimate way of connecting with my children. It’s interesting how you discover that each child is unique. They, all three of my children learn differently. We’ve accidentally discovered Unschooling and Self-Directed Learning over the past year and a half. I didn’t realize it at the time. Actually only realizing this discover and the name for it a couple of months ago. I’d heard of Unschooling and thought of doing it but wasn’t confident in the theory. As I would take these pauses on our traditional way of learning to deal with the life of moving from our home, downsizing, closing /selling/liquidating my business, sharing space, travel and dealing with depression and grief; I’d notice my children were still learning. For example my daughter was into making slime and gymnastics. She would watch videos and learned how to make the slime. She is constantly trying to perfect it. The same with gymnastics, she would teach herself these gymnastics moves by practicing them until she had it. Then she wanted to create a YouTube channel. She did research on what that would take, the rules and responsibilities of being a channel owner, how to edit videos, how to create interesting content. This led to her wanting to create a slime business. I’m encouraging none of this, this is her, her idea, her research and her knowledge. So what I’m saying is I was amazed at my children and what they were learning. And without me!!!! Well, that doesn’t seem right and doesn’t give me any bragging rights of how brilliant I am 🤪🤪🤪 So, I started doing research on Unschooling and Self-Directed learning because I thought wow this a bit unbelievable. To say the least, I am still learning myself, as well, in life and in general. I am enjoying the genius of my children, watching them learn and grow. I’m enjoying our journey together as we learn and grow together. I do not have all the answers but this is pretty flipping cool 😎 to see first hand. #ourjourney #homeschool #unschooling #selfdirectedlearning #growingtogether #learningtogether #homeschoolmom #momlife

Welcome to the world Bodhi Allen Parra! Little guy decided it was time to go at 24 weeks and 6 days. 1lb 9oz at birth and 12 inches long. Baby boy is in critical condition but stable at this time. After a few hours of laboring they discovered a breached umbilical cord and immediately went into an emergency c-section. Momma is in a good bit of pain but doing well.

Vilken dag hörrni!🙆🏻‍♀️
Snön faller försiktigt ner och lägger sig som ett tjockt duntäcke på marken. Kan man annat än älska dessa dagar❄️ Plus att det är torgdag, då följer alltid (när jag hinner ner) en bukett med hem! Det livar upp hela hemmet med lite färska snittblommor tycker jag💐
