I launched Sugarloaf a month ago already. Having my own shop was a dream I always wanted to fulfill. Sugarloaf is now a reality and I feel so happy to be able to work on the store every day. ✨It's not always easy and definitely a challenge to run a business and a family at the same time....and yet I wouldn't change anything!
I feel especially grateful to my husband who always supports me, my 2 children, Léon and Joséphine, and to my friends. ❤️
I also wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all our clients who decided to trust us and placed an order with us in these first 30 days! It means so much to me and it definitely encourages me to continue and work harder to make the shop even better! THANK YOU ❤️
Food pictures from Family and Friends Brunch 2017. We are thankful to the Great Provider for giving us alive, pure, living foods, and for the wisdom to choose and enjoy those foods that allow us to thrive!
Many years ago, while looking successful outside, inside, l was beaten and deflated like a balloon, struggling with eating disorders and other self destructive behaviors that came along with it. At some point, l was seeing three professionals each week. I would later end my visits in my third year of college because they weren't helping much. Once during my weekly visit to Dr. A., she asked me why it was that anytime l felt the urge to binge, l didn't just binge on Apples? That was a Eureka moment for me. Often, when there is an abuse of food, it involves cheap junk. I started to pray and ask the Lord to give me the wisdom to choose those foods He created for the nourishment of my body.
Today, with Dupe as Co owner and our great staff, Live and Blossom thrives. We never cut corners or compromise on Real Food. With great care, wisdom, understanding, and passion we create meals, snacks, and desserts with integrity, honesty, and respect for the beauty and wonder of nature. #familyandfriendsbrunch#thankfulthursday#gratitude#grateful#victoryinJesusChrist#realfoods#alivefoods#eatingwell#livingfree#freedom#selfcontrol#balance#victory#food#eatingdisorders#bulimia#anorexia#compulsiveeatingdisorder#bingeeatingdisorder#free#addiction#slavery#captivessetfree#liveandblossom
Another example of our amazing volunteers doing what it takes to help our kids succeed. A big thanks to mentors Robert and Rich (both with Roswell Rotary!) for taking his mentee to the Social Security Office so he could apply to get his Social Security Card. It should arrive in the mail any day now!! The student is a DACA youth and this will be his first Social Security card! He is truly a tremendous young man. We are so grateful for our volunteers!! Remember, StandUp is driven by volunteers. Volunteers are the true change makers and sometimes the only source of hope and encouragement for our youth. #thankyou#volunteer#makingadifference#grateful#DACA#homeless#youth#takesavillage#oneyouthatatime
We live in a world where most people are paycheck to paycheck and can't afford many extras.
At least that's what we say and then on payday we carry our grande $5 coffee around Target for ONE thing and wind up with a cart full of $100+ 🙈(I mean seriously, how does it ALWAYS happen?! Anyone else?)
I hear it all of the time, "I don't have money." I even find myself saying it without even thinking about it. Right after saying those words, I would spend at least $15 on lunch out with friends, $5 on coffee at the local spot, and so many other little things that really added up.
So obviously when I was approached to spend money on workouts and nutrition, the famous phrase came out. I mean DUH, I had tried the whole gym thing before and it never worked! Why would I want to spend more now?
Well my dear, if I hadn't paid, I'd still be overweight, eating two meals a day, and opting for anything "low fat" and "low calorie."
Sometimes it's not about spending any more money. It's about redirecting that money you already have to invest in your future.
Think about it, you're not getting any younger and it's not going to get any easier. It's time to think about your future and where you want to be! Ready to start investing in yourself? DM me or click the link in my bio 😘📲
I thought it was just a silly picture we were taking. But thinking about it more, I pray that this view never changes. My prayer is that I am a father that my son always looks up to and that I never abuse the privilege but cultivate it. What a privilege, honor and blessing to be his F A T H E R. || I salute all of the great fathers in the world today, I personally know many!!! || #fathers#grateful#love#rolemodels#shadows#breauxboys#breauxthoughts#730amphoto
And the same goes for us ladies let God mold you into the wife that your future husband is praying for .
Stand still and listen to the holy spirit, He is your guide ask him to open your spiritual eyes, ears and mind . The heart can be deceiving so above all guard your mind and your heart and Believe that God is always up to something great . Have a blessed Thursday .
Day 5 of gratitude week-
Today I'm feeling super grateful for the Magic of airplanes & the wonder of technology.
Technology has allowed me to stay close to people who live all over the world , and airplanes are allowing one of those people to come directly to my city.
I'm at the airport waiting for my dear friend Melissa Lareau to arrive from San Fran for a six day visit after not having been in the same room with each other in 10 yrs!!! I can't wait to hug her & share Asheville with her.
To share connections, love, and endless hours of conversation- all my favorites.
Feeling excited to take some time off from work & my busy schedule to play & frolic in the nature here that I love so much with people I adore.
It's an extra happy grateful day for me. Annnnddd pole dancing tonight on top of all of it. Woot Woot #excited#openheartedconnection#girlfriends#grateful#gratitude#happy#oldfriend#healing#healingmylife#anxietyrecovery#fun#nature#play#destressing#reuniting#adventureawaits
