🎁 Paris in December ... So Quickly Just a Memory 🎁 .... Just a Blink Ago .... I experienced a Night to Remember .... But for reasons you may not have guessed .... . This night ... Completely Changed the Course of My Life ... . A night of show 🎭 and champagne 🥂... a night of music 🎶... French accents and an unexpected American accent among the bunches .... Whirlwinds of Photo-Booth moments and giggles and silly behavior ... and even a new French Friend - For - Life ... . When I awoke the morning - after ... It felt “ just like that “ Being real with you - .... Much was a blur ... which I dunno bout you but that brings me a scare ... So That day ... I took my “ alone self “ To view the beautiful streets of #Paris .... So decorated for Cheerful Christmas-y Yule-tide whatever ... Shopping 🛍 ... perfumes and fur coats adorned many ... the structures so magnificent ... But I felt Anything but magnificent..... . I made my way to The #Louvre .... It was so so cold it was painful !!! But also so so glorious to see and be part of ... To Gods sweet grace - my newly made - French friend .... decided to meet me there ... Relief came to me .... I am a strong ... courageous woman who loves time on my own ... I traveled all this way “ alone “ but This Day ... alone felt More Alone than Ever ... . A Ray of Sunshine ... New Hope made a little baby flame 🔥 in me .... We met .. we viewed the #MonaLisa and all the other seriously Gigantic ... historical and flawless pieces of art ... We talked ... as much as I could understand the accent ;) We then decided on going for a genuine - French cheese 🧀 board and a tasting of French wine 🍷... . What happened through alllll of this ... Was a Decision ... A Huge. Monumental. Decision. . The rest of my days .... I will Live to Remember. I will Live them to be Present. Awake ... really awake which means - sober enough ;) I Decided I would No longer just “ date whoever “ and that my Freedom ... did Not mean I was “Free” to just anyone. I decided ... My Life Must have New ... Real ... Earth Shaking and Humanity Reaching ... Heaven Opening INTENTION. . I will update you more in little sprinkles of How This has Played out So Far. at Paris, France

~ What Can Change ... In Almost a Decade ~ . Your baby may be Bigger then You ... In Many ways Wiser ... May have Grown into the Very Best of You Combined with themself ... Totally Unique but Still .. Sometimes ... So Reminiscent of you ... . For us .... Even So So Much More has Changed. Sometimes we have to be what feels like , Worlds 🌎apart ... But always Together in Heart ❤️ . Sometimes .... like today ... we can only be together by phone ☎️ in Huge .. Pivotal Moments ... And it’s hard not to cry 😢 but we both Choose to Look Up ... instead of just ahead ... or at ourselves or situations .. we Look Up and we choose to see the Best of Whatever We are Facing ... we choose to Love what we Have instead of focusing on what we don’t. . Since This first “before” photo was taken ... about 8 moves have taken place for me , 6 for her. Several different schools. . A Totally New Life for Both of us. No longer a family in one home ... or married parents for this precious girl .... but Two Parents who Love Her with passion and pursuit. . One thing has not changed. Gods love and provision for each of us. He never changes. His love never falters. . #lifemoments #singlemomlife #Hisloveneverfails #Faithit #snowday #momlife #preciousmoments #gratitude #babyitscoldoutside #holidays #familyties #tbt #progress over perfection His #grace always wins. #love #momsanddaughters 💕❄️🦋👯‍♀️👩‍👧

She Captured My Heart ❤️ . The Most Precious of Birthday Gifts is this candid photo my lil niece snapped ... & it will forever be among my most treasured of all. . She captured my heart .... I let her use auntie Liz’s phone ☎️ aka - my phone in church .. she wasn’t feeling well - a good distraction from the discomfort ... She was taking silly pics of herself and her sis ... but somehow ... she also captures this 😌 My eyes welled up with tears 💦 when I saw it ... . A tender moment I felt alone and encapsulated by Gods love ❤️ a moment of sweet surrender and captivated in my father’s presence ... .... she saw it from her point of view & now .... thanks to this lil angel .. I can keep it forever ... If I could show anyone a picture of what life means to me now that my Birthday has come ... another year older ... another year wiser ? ... actually .... truth be told .... another year more humble ... more surrendered. More willing and more trusting ... more tender and more grateful ... more in Love With Jesus and His purpose for me ... for all of us ... THIS. IS. IT. . May the Rest of Our Lives be the Best of Our Lives 😘xoxo . #precious #moments #birthdaygirl #faithforward #itsthelittlethings #captured by #love #gratitude #Godfirst #blessed #isntshelovely #prayerchangesthings #grace

What’s wrong Sweet girl .. “ I don’t feel good she says “ and she had burst out of the kids place with lil tears 💦 in her eyes :( Of course ... as I Cuddle her .... and she knows she can stay with me ... she calms down and then .... She Fills Me with SO Much Love that it’s as if She is Healing something in Me that I didn’t even realize needed healing .... . Loving Others .... I am Completely Convinced that THIS is the Remedy for All Ailments ... the Answer to All Questions the Absolute Core of Our Purpose ... and the Source of True Joy. .

Thank You God ... for Giving me Sisters 👯 across the Globe . NOT THE TYPICAL STORY to follow - . Today ... meeting with a group of girls for the first time ... and instantly feeling a sense of sisterhood ... being reminded of our commonalities as girls .. universally .. yet our beautiful differences at the same time ... was So Humbling and such a Sweet Reward for being up Early lol. I’m NOT a morning person :) BUT ..... it ALSO Reminds me now .... How Much I Miss This Sweet little sis of mine over in Ireland .... because .... The Ways we Meet People ... and can Instantly Connect ... is Otherworldly to say the least ... The Story of How I Met This Amazing sister - of - mine .... Is HEARTBREAKING 💔.... but also a Picture of LOVE and DIVINE intervention. 💝 . @svetlana_smx is the sister of a man that literally Swept Me Away ... in the way that I learned what a man is capable of being. Not just handsome. Not just fit. Not just kind. Not just smart .... But Literally all of that and more than can be explained. I Won’t share All of this story tonight ... I will post something in the near future to catch you up ... but for tonight ... #Girls .... we Need Each Other. We need #Sisterhood ... we need Unity ... Let’s Embrace each other Without Judgment. Without expectation ... just Open Hearts. . Love you Svetlana ... thank you for sisterhood and the amazing , unique and #fierce girl you are !! Cheers to YOU tonight and cheers to the girls I met today that brought me to this post !! ( I’ll respect your privacy ) ;) Love ❤️ u all. . #gratitude #spreadthelove #templebardublin #memories #goodtimes #blessed at Temple Bar

No Scars to Your Beautiful • The Post I Never Posted . To the Girls who Think they Aren’t Enough . The Girls who Think they Can’t be Loved . The Girls who have been Used ... Abused by Others or Themselves. Those that have Gut Instinct There is Something More but Don’t Know Where to Start ... or How to Break Free .... . IDENTITY . Our Identity is Often Most Attacked ... BY US !!!!! Ourselves my loves 💕 Especially if we Have been Used or Abused ... Long after the time of the initial abuse .... WE ABUSE OURSELVES. . This pic was never posted before - because .... I was So Self Critical. I Stared Myself Down and felt it Just Didn’t Measure up ... to My Own Standards and then .... the Dreaded “ what if someone thinks this angle is Ugly and they don’t like my look anymore “ so self centered. So off base right ? But don’t we All Do it Sometimes ? Or more - like Most the Time ... . PERFECTIONISM = Poison COMPARISON = Poison . We cover our lights in more - than - fifty Shades of Grey ... with SHAME. GUILT. CONDEMNATION. . This day ... my first impressions of this picture Made me Forget .. until Now ... The Beauty of That Day !! God Used me as a Light 💡 that day. I was able to Help other girls be Comfortable in Their Skin and Point our How Uniquely Beautiful and Exquisite THEY ARE !!! In the Moments I Was Not Self Focused .... I was Focused on Others and JOY was in that !! ❤️ . Truth : Everyone .... EEEEEVERYONE Has Insecurities. Even models. . Truth : When we reach Outside Ourselves We ARE Beautiful Lights to Others. . Truth : No Scars to Our Beautiful .. were Stars ⭐️ and we’re Beautiful ... Just the Way we Are. . .

It’s Personal .... . Ok ... so Tonight ... your invited Into My Personal Love Life ❤️ . Because .... it’s Time to Embrace #Vision. #Purpose. #Dreams. And when we Share ... we Allow a Declaration of our Faith to be Let Loose into the atmosphere and into hearts 💕 . When I was a little girl ... my dad gave me a bit of advice ... He said “ make a list of the qualities you want in a husband. Make sure that they are qualities that enable him to be good and faithful and are like-minded with your beliefs and what’s important to you “ This is my paraphrase as best I can remember as o was probably 10 years old ... But really ... as girls a lot of us start having Visions and Dreams of our Husband-to-be .. and our weddings as soon as we’re standing strong enough to slip into our mamas heels 👠 ( ye like 3 ish lol ) That Early !!!! It was something that stuck with me always .... I did this !!! I made a List. Probably at age 12 ..... But what happened ..... ? ..... . I decided to Believe that I Only Deserved what came to me and decided to accept me ..... Even If It Was NOT a match for that List. . COMPROMISE ... This is what happened. Fear. Distorted Self Image. Hurting people Attracting Other Hurting People ... Makes for a lackluster fairytale . . So .... I decided ... I will make a new list. Pin it. Pray about It. Pray about LOVE ❤️ What it Means. How to live it Out. I Began to Study Love ... Marriage. Relationships. Prepare myself to be the Best Lover in Life as a Whole. Relationships with Family. Friends. My Sisterhood of coaches. Passers - by ... And .... My personal Love. . We cannot truly live without love. Knowing it. Accepting it. Giving it. And Love is Tough !!! It’s selfless. It’s forgiving. It’s faithful and kind and Believes the Best ... Seems Impossible right ? Well ...... I’m Learning that the More I Accept Love .... the More I can Give Love. You can Do This Too !!!!! . Let’s Believe and Dream and Pin Boards together !!!!! 💋 #loveispatientloveiskind #faithit #Godislove #savedbygrace #secondchances #visionboard #pinit #lifelessons #newlife #personal

Mountains 🏔 Stay Frozen @ the Bottom & Never see what’s on the Other Side . OR . Climb Them. Move Them. Go Around Them. . All Require Faith. Action. And some Bravery ... but ... Yes .... You Can ... HOW ? . The lessons most never learn and the 🗝 to Freedom = Belief. . How do you believe In what you cannot see ? . Take a Risk. You will no matter what. You either risk staying the same. Or you risk change. It is our choice ... . Support ... share something with someone ( yes it can be me ) That is Your Mountain 🏔 .... This is your First step in Action ... If you Pray ... tell God ... Then ... whatever ideas 💡 come to ...and they will ... when we open our minds to Possibility - it begins to form ideas of How to Achieve what we have opened up to :) Take the Ideas and plant them in your heart ... accept support to Act ... One .. Baby .. Step at a time. . If you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can say to this mountain move from here to there and it will be moved ! #truth #faith #wins #movingmountains #lifehappens #trust #hope #love the greatest of these is love ... so let love fuel you forward. #motivated #yesyoucan #thetop #ireland #hiking #godscreation #keepinitfresh #overcomers #unite at Ireland (country)

NOT Another Happy Fall Family Post . Today .. a year ago .. was one of the Scariest days of my Entire Life .. . This day also marks what Used to be a wedding anniversary ... today would have been 14 years ... . I am ALL about Inspiring people and lifting people up ... and I Love Modeling / glamor / Paris and Photo shoots / sushi and going out with friends ... But ... Today I need to share to TRUTH in-between. . It. Has. Been. An excruciating life. One of Lost Love. One of Lost Family. One of Sickness. Dark days of Hopelessness. There have not always been sunshine ☀️ heels 👠 and sushi 🍣 . Today ... I vulnerably share with you ... that one year ago ... I was not celebrating a lovely marriage ... but a scary day not knowing if I would ever be free to live my life new .. I was divorced. I had been out the night before and this day I woke up sick. I woke up scared. I woke up in Ireland 🇮🇪 my new home ... but not in a home of my own ... I woke up thinking fearfully “ is this as good as it gets “ There are more Personal details I won’t share in here but I will just say it was One Scary Day and Painful Day ... Thank you to my two beauties who helped me through it ( you know who you are ). . Today .... life is still not all figured out .. but .. the flowers in this pic are from mom who surprised me with them and some candles to go with. Just because she loves me :) And today ... I share this pic with my mom and my precious nieces as we visited Ronald McDonald House In Salk Lake City ~ to share in celebrating lives of people who Help People. Who Love People. This is what Life is About. Helping and Loving others. . #gratitude #fall #moments #lifelessons #rmhc #slc #truth #faithit as ya make it #forreal #love

~ The Deep Dark Secrets ... of My Move to Ireland ~ . The Untold to Most ... the Partly told to few ... the Real .. Raw Truth. . (Disclaimer - This information is in no way intended to offend anyone or to recommend the same courses of action to others) . Just over One Year Ago - I visited this Beautiful Heartland of mine for the 2nd x in my life. ( first x I was 18 ) Unexpectedly. Barely planned - I literally dragged myself here to Celebrate my Grandad’s 80th - as I would be giving a great gift to Celebrate this Amazing life of His Here ... in this Special Place we Both Love. ( My Grandma & Grandad brought me here as a Grad Gift when I was 18 ) THIS Last June Trip was during a time of Great Stress. Turmoil. Agony for me. . What happens Next No One could Ever Expect or Predict. . My feet touched Irish ☘️ soil. Put me into the Same Trance that it did when I was 18 ... . The Miracles Began. I saw my Great Uncle in His Mid- 80s Fall - in - Love ❤️ With a New Sweetheart. After the suffering of a Lost Love .... New Love ❤️ Blossomed Before my Eyes. . I saw friends we call our Irish ☘️ family from my previous trip .... and the Trance 💫 Grew Stronger. . There is something Magical about Ireland that just Can’t be Explained - but it is Felt and Known by Many ✨ . A Select set of words -phrases were Spoken to Me ( at a certain time during that trip ) by a certain person .... that Lit a Fire 🔥 in Me I Will NEVER Ever Forget. . “ Liz , Anything is Possible “ “ Anything Can Happen “ This person repeated these to me several times and it seemed So Genuine. So Full of Faith and as If O had Never Heard These Words In My Entire Life !!! WHY ? ? ? I believe it was The Timing. The Person themselves ..... And ..... but Not Least ... DIVINE INTERVENTION 🕊 . I legitimately .... Have Never. Ever. Been the same. ( you know how they say you need to hear / see something like 7 x before it Sticks ....... maybe this was IT 🤷‍♀️ ) . THIS Was IT. . A couple days later I Decided one of the Most Important Decisions of my Life. . I’m moving to Ireland. And ASAP. . Then ...... ANOTHER. . The past FIFTEEN ( 15 ) Year TOXIC 🤢 Relationship I had been in. -Part 2 Below- at County Louth
