This photo, the first I’ve taken of myself alone, feels unreal. I feel anything like myself these days. I’m not sure I could pinpoint exactly what feeling like myself felt like before. All I know is that I don’t feel that way now. There is line marking before and after July 18. I do the things, get the kids to school, run errands, see friends, do Beautycounter work, plan birthday parties, all of it. But it feels more out if an obligation to my kids and to myself to not sit still. And what I can’t discern is if I’m doing that because life continues to move forward. Or I’m searching for normalcy in this crazy flipped upside down life. Or if I’m hiding. The fact is I chose this life, here, with him. And now nothing about it feels the same or familiar. The below excerpt was shared with me by a good friend and I feel like it so perfectly sums up so much of what I’ve been trying to share. and the word I just can’t find today 2 months after Warren was killed. The death of a spouse or partner is different that any other losses, in the sense that it literally changes every single thing in your world going forward. When your spouse dies, the way you eat changes. The way you watch TV changes. Your friend circle changes (or disappears entirely). Your family dynamic/life changes (or disappears entirely). Your financial status changes. Your job situation changes. It effects your self-worth. Your self-esteem. Your confidence. Your rhythms. The way you breathe. Your mentality. Your brain function (Ever hears the term ‘widow brain’? If you don’t know what that is, count yourself as very lucky). Your physical body. Your hobbies and interests. Your sense of security. Your sense of humour. Your sense of womanhood or manhood. EVERY. SINGLE. THING. CHANGES. You are handed a new life that you never asked for and that you don’t particularly want. It’s the hardest, most-gut wrenching, horrific, life-altering of things to live with. From My Husband is Not a Rainbow by @kelleyiskelley Смотреть полностью

I just love that this week I got to interview my friend @nancybearg for the Widowed Parent Podcast. She's co-author of "Reboot Your Life: Energize Your Career and Life by Taking a Break." So, when I got a listener question about taking time off work after losing a spouse, I just knew I needed to talk with Nancy about it. . By the way, the book is for anyone considering a sabbatical for any reason -- going back to school, traveling, volunteering, exploring a career change, and more. If you've ever wondered whether a "reboot break" might be possible or advisable, do check out Nancy's book. . Link in bio to listen. Смотреть полностью

Almost seven years have passed & I still have shit days. Yesterday was one of them. 😔 I have been doing this long enough now, that I can usually predict when my "hard days" will hit. But, every once in awhile I have a day that my mood just tanks out of the blue. No rhyme or reason. I just feel sad and I am on the verge of tears all day. A little bit of the "widow fog" comes back. If you are a widow, then you know. It's a feeling that I can't explain when a loved one asks "what's wrong?" Because, Nothing is really wrong. I just don't feel like myself & I feel a little sad. On days like yesterday, I have to remember to give myself a little grace. I have battled back from the depths of hell to find happiness again. But, I also experienced a great love & loss, which means that my life will forever be impacted by that. Growth happens on the darkest days. Yesterday, I loved on my babies & did the bare minimum to get through the day & that's ok. I LET MYSELF GRIEVE.🖤 It's a New Day 🖤 & I am here for it! 👊 #widows #hopeforwidows #lifeafterloss #griefjourney #griefawareness #youngandwidowed #griefrecovery #widowhoodisnotforsissies #widowed #widow #griefandloss #youngwidow #widowlife #grief #widowsofinstagram #widowhood #widowshelpingwidows Смотреть полностью
Modern Widows Club This weekend, we celebrate with our Houston Leader, Natalie Lancaster,
Houston, Texas

This weekend, we celebrate with our Houston Leader, Natalie Lancaster, as she remarries on September 21. Natalie became a widow in 2011. After an internet search, deep in despair, looking for hope, she found Carolyn Moor, the founder of Modern Widows Club. Natalie says “Carolyn rescued me and helped me move towards new life. She gave me hope! She saved me. The more she helped me grow out of despair and helped me walk into the light of my new life, the more I knew I had to lead a chapter for our city. I was beginning to see widows all around me struggling with all with different kinds of loss, different problems, different backgrounds, cultures, financial situations; and they all desperate needed help. A hand to hold, a book to read, a mentor and most of all, a friend that understands this unique journey. I wanted to be that friend to them.” . . . . #widowleader #modernwidowsclub #nowidowleftbehind #healthywidowhealthywoman #empowerwidows #widows #widowlife #wisters #widowhood #lifeafterloss #grieving #grief #griefjourney #griefandloss #griefsupport #griefawareness #widowedliving #widowsofinstagram #youngwidow #widowedmom #widow #widowshelpingwidows #healthyhealing #resilience #modernloss #newnormal #widowremarriage #remarriage #newbeginnings Смотреть полностью

My life is defined by Before & After. ⁣ ⁣ Before cancer. Before your death. And after. We had so many problems before...Or so we thought. Problems that I’d take back if you could be here. We had so many dreams that will never happen and don’t matter without you. ⁣ ⁣ I don’t cry as much anymore. But when I do it’s ugly. I’m pretty good at getting through the days now. I have a lot to do and a lot to think about. An online fitness business that keeps me healthy and healing. But I’m not sure if I’ll ever be healed from this kind of pain. ⁣ ⁣ At the garage sale that I had when I was moving out of our house, a woman came and she mentioned she was a widow. I can’t remember how it came up, but she said it had been 11 years and that she never really thought of him now. I can’t imagine that. It hasn’t been 3 yet and there isn’t more than a few minutes between thoughts of you. Even in my sleep. ⁣ ⁣ They may not be always happy thoughts, they weren’t all happy memories. But they were all worth it. I am thankful I got to see the man you were when all the things we thought had mattered were stripped away. Death changes people. Смотреть полностью

First soccer game this weekend, it was hard. Sports for the boys were a big deal for Paul. We would sit on the sidelines get way too into the game and way too loud. Paul always played sports as a child and this was a big milestone for us. He loved watching his boys. As usual, that ache and grief joined me as I drove away from the game. . . . #grief #soccermom #soccerseason #futbol #widow #widowlife #widowhood #widows #widowed #motherhood #sports #grief #griefjourney #sadness #imissyou #boymom #momofboys #singlemom #singlemomlife #singlemother #gonetoosoon #lifeafterdeath #greatloss #lifeafterloss #mourning #youngwidow Смотреть полностью

Lisa O'Leary If this isn’t appropriate for #transformationtuesday I don’t know

If this isn’t appropriate for #transformationtuesday I don’t know what is! I shared this recently on my stories after a friend sent me the picture on the left from a wedding I was in ten years ago in 2009. That girl was a year sober, which was incredible, but still terrified of life and learning how to deal with the ups and downs without numbing out in some way. Truthfully, I still was numbing out with food, because I was too afraid to deal with all the feelings that come along with being human. I am still fiercely proud of that girl, but she was so lost. I was honestly shocked when I saw that photo - I barely recognized myself. I was so in love with the couple at that wedding, but horrified to be in front of all those people. Flash forward to a week and a half ago on the right. I mean, holy hell if the physical difference isn’t obvious, but you know what I see? Confidence. Strength. Un-fuck-with-able. Since a decade ago, I lost all that weight once, gained it back after my husband died, and lost it again over the last year and a half. Why am I not afraid to gain it again? Because I no longer crash diet for fast results. I work hard every single day. I don’t kid myself that I can exercise away a shitty diet. Most importantly, I know that I am WORTH the hard work. I’m still going through some heavy emotional shit right now, but this time I don’t have to medicate with food, or shopping, or any other bullshit that won’t help. I’m back in therapy. I go to recovery meetings. I sponsor women, and am a sponsored woman. I invest in relationships that lift me up and support me and let go of people who can’t. Does food matter? F*ck yes. Does exercise matter? Abso-f*ckin-lutely. But I have found if I don’t clean up those wounds in my soul, no matter how much weight I lose or gain, I’ll still never be satisfied. Today, I am enough. And that KICKS ASS.

 This week I learned that grief has muscle memory.Matt’s grandfathe
5
This week I learned that grief has muscle memory. Matt’s grandfather, G and H’s great-grandfather, passed away at 106 years old. He lived a long and beautiful life, fathering three sons, mentoring six grandchildren, and delighting in nine great-grandchildren. He’d seen the world change, witnessed the explosion of technology and the evolution of humanity. His loss, like every loss, leaves an absence, a space that will never quite be filled, in those who knew and loved him. But his death isn’t a tragedy in the strictest sense of the word. Matt’s parents called to tell me the news shortly after I arrived for my third day of #Pilates training intensive. I heard the words they spoke and my physical reaction was instant. My heart rate soared well into the 180s. My hands shook. I felt light-headed and unable to focus, to see straight. Guilt vibrated through me as I tried to tamp down the physical response. I felt as if I was overreacting, stealing grief from the people who deserved to grieve—Matt’s parents, his sisters, his cousins. Not me. The granddaughter-in-law. It wasn’t until hours later that I placed the reaction. It was identical to the reaction I’d had at the cemetery the day we buried Matt. The same elevated heart rate and wild, out of control spinning sensation. It was the muscle memory of grief. It was the reality that grief changes you, becomes a part of you, and that’s not necessarily a terrible thing. Because maybe that fact, that way that grief is absorbed into the fabric of who you are, means you have the tools to be a little kinder, a little more empathetic, a little more present for the moments that matter. Maybe. Hopefully. Смотреть полностью

• Grief Support Groups • I think one of the most influential things I’ve found and participated in since James died is my grief group. From day one, they’ve welcomed me with open arms and offered an insulating safe space where I can just be. I can cry; I can grieve; I can silently weep - it doesn’t matter what I do; I am accepted and loved. • Once a month, the group meets for lunch to help in the transition back to the outside world & life. I was so grateful that I could just sit there and listen to the conversations around me - I enjoyed myself and felt the comradery of a group of people whose only thing in common is that we have each experienced a great loss. • I got fish & chips in memory of my sweet James.

This post is a lil ironic because of Kaden’s tee lol. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Hear me out though....sometimes I look at them & I don’t feel motivation. Sometimes I look at them & they are my daily fuel. At this point, both are ok. I kept (and still) keep hearing that I need to be strong for them. That I have to “get better” because of them. It’s obvious that they need the best mom possible, but I will not suppress nor put away my pain and grief for them. No mother should hide their vulnerability from their children. Our kids watch us, they pay attention to how we deal with various situations and life experiences. I will not allow my boys to believe we ALWAYS have to be strong & ok. Even though people mean well, I don’t need the unsolicited advice. I’m taking this journey one step at a time, going through the motions, minding my own. I expect those around me to understand that as well. I know what I’m doing. I got them, they got me, & God + David got us. We’re good~ 💯💕 . . . #widowlife #griefjourney #griefawareness #griefrecovery #abundantbossbabes #abundancemindset #selfcareblogger #influencercollective #blogandbeyond #discoverunder50K #lifestyleinfluencer #creativegalgang #empowerHER #womensnetwork #fiercefemales #womenwholead #sheconquers #hersuccess Смотреть полностью

Book 14/26 #2019goals #amreading Olivia Laing’s Crudo. I enjoyed the various entry and exit points throughout which invited reminiscing about Kathy Acker. It’s not untrue to say N and I first met because of Kathy Acker’s writing; and that synchronicity and synthesis of words and ideas and meanings and livings is in Laing’s book, as it was in Acker’s writing, as it was in life with N. Maybe all novels and all relationships and all our decisions are plagiarism. This book made me revisit my love of swimming. This book reminded me of my love of N. Revisiting, reminding, remembering, reminiscing, rewriting, rewinding.

2
CHAPTER 6: LOVE THE ONE YOU IS . . I highly recommend this book if you haven't read it yet. I want to just share part of Chapter 6 on forgiving yourself because forgiving yourself along with others is the greatest gift you can give yourself- and so important for being able to move forward with your life. . . "Get clear on this one truth: guilt, shame, and self-criticism are some of the most destructive forces in your life, which is why forgiving yourself is one of the most powerful. Here's an excellent way to do it. . . Think of a specific thing you did that you feel badly about. Call it up in your mind and feel it in your body. Repeat the following over and over while thinking of it and really feel what you are saying to yourself: . 'Holding on to my bad feelings about this is doing nothing but harming me, and everyone else, and preventing me from enjoying my life fully. I am an awesome person. I choose to enjoy my life. I chose to let this go.' . Repeat this until you feel a sense of freedom and lightness around your issue. It may take a day ore a week or several months or it could happen right away. But however long it takes, do it, because if you want to be free, you need to put in the time. And if you need to apologize to someone, pick up the phone." . . So powerful right? Is there something you aren't forgiving yourself for? Try this exercise and let me know how it goes! 💜 Смотреть полностью

Samantha I don’t know if the loneliness part ever gets any better.•Maybe

I don’t know if the loneliness part ever gets any better. • Maybe it doesn’t get any better but it gets easier in the sense that, after awhile, you simply get used to it. You get used to the loneliness. You learn to expect it, so it doesn’t creep up and attack you as often. And you learn to cope with it, so sometimes it even feels like it’s not even there. You surround yourself with friends and family, which takes away the loneliness during the days. And at nights you watch a movie or read a book or do homework so you don’t feel it because you’re so immersed in something else because you know that the nights are the worst. But then you wear yourself down and out after awhile and the loneliness hits you as hard as it did just months after their death. • But after a bit you breathe. Just breathe. Air fills your lungs and peace fills your soul. You’ve been here before, many times. Breathe because you’ve learned that this too shall pass. You now know that you’ve overcome every single one of your worst moments. And you’ll wake up in the morning for a new day and the loneliness has somehow softened and you’ll start all over again. • So just breathe. 🖤 Смотреть полностью

What are you afraid of? I don’t mean scary movies. I mean in life . I’m afraid of “doing life” without my husband who passed last month 💔🥺. I’m afraid of my financial future . I’m afraid of being alone. In my business , I’m afraid of “putting myself out there “🤦🏻‍♀️! Silly as that sounds at my age , social media is a whole new ballgame . I worked as an RN for 25 years . Went in , did my job , did it well . I new what I was doing and what was expected of me and I did it ever day . I was comfortable and secure. Social media is so different . It makes me uncomfortable and insecure 😟 Posting , blogging . What to post , when to post 🤷🏻‍♀️ Trying to figure out what draws people to you and making sure everything is “just right” . I just want to keep helping people as I did as a nurse . 🤗 All this makes me anxious, but I am determined to succeed and feel secure AND figure out what will be MY new normal. Is there such a thing ? Look towards the future whether we’re afraid or not . #future #alone #widow #widowlife #entrepreneurlife #grief #rnlife #retirednurse #retired #newnormal #financialfreedom #dontbeafraid #dontbeafraidtofail Смотреть полностью

I am a widow and for so long I was shamed to be such. I got the pity yes for sure but I never got the accolades that accompany such a journey.

Today was just hard...it started out great and then a song set everything in motion. When Paul got into the accident all I could think of was “Let’s Just be Still” by The Head and the Heart and then when we found out he wasn’t going to wake up it switched to “Rivers and Roads” and this morning that song brought me back to the ICU waiting room. The day we made the decision that this was the end. The day we waited for the organ donation surgeons to arrive. The day I knew would end with Paul’s last breath. And all I could think of this morning while weeping and making pancakes is, “how could my big, strong man of husband have died? He was invincible. He was magnificent. I loved him so much. How is this possible?” We are less than a month away from the year mark and it’s very very hard. . . . #donatelife #widow #widowhood #grief #bereavement #mourning #sadness #weeping #sorrow #death #lifeafterdeath #lifeafterloss #loss #greatloss #organdonation #icu #theend #widowlife #widowed #gonetoosoon #onlythegooddieyoung #widows #theheadandtheheart #youngwidow #singlemom #singlemomlife #singlemother #griefjourney #griefandloss Смотреть полностью

Listening to a podcast this morning and this idea resonated with my soul. I’m actively learning to find the #JOMO (the joy of missing out) in my life.

• On February 14, 1884, Theodore Roosevelt received a terrible news, his wife and mother died within hours of one another in the Roosevelt house in New York City. His mother, age 50, succumbed to typhus, and his wife Alice died at the age of 22 giving birth to her namesake. His diary entries lovingly describe his courtship, wedding, happiness in marriage, and his grief over the death of his wife Alice. In his ever-present pocket diary on February 14, 1884, Theodore Roosevelt simply wrote an “X” above one striking sentence: “The light has gone out of my life“. Since he first cast his eyes upon Alice’s face in 1878, Theodore Roosevelt had filled pages of his diary by writing about her nearly as often as he thought about her. He noted the simplest expressions, the smallest acts of recognition, the quietest smiles, the loudest silences, and every action that resulted in a memory that they could replay again-and-again in the future that they had planned together. After his wife died, Roosevelt not only never spoke her name again, but never allowed anyone else to speak her name in his presence. That included their daughter, Alice Longworth Roosevelt, who never heard her father speak her mother’s name. His belief was, and he told this to a friend who also lost his wife, that the pain had to be buried as deep inside as possible or it would destroy you. This is the opposite of the current opinion that feelings should be shared. • I will always say your name, James. I’ll love you forever. • #foreverus #sayhisname #grief #griefquotes #griefandloss #loveandloss #lifeafterloss #widowhood #youngwidows #widowshelpingwidows #helpingwidows #widowsofinstagram #widowlife #griefjourney #griefsupport #griefquotes #griefawareness #normalizegrief #griefwork #hope #bereavement #suddendeath #suddenloss #sharegoodness #vulnerability Смотреть полностью

I don’t usually rant online but I have to do it today. #allnaturalselfie #nomakeup #neverusesfilters So I have been a widow for over 3 years now. I have been trying to put myself out there for the past year. Trying to be patient to find someone the opposite sex to hang out with or date is almost impossible. What I have noticed and no offence to those good guys is that most men want one things. I have been asked to have FWB (friends with benefits) or just want the one thing in a relationship. How can you just base your relationship one that one factor? When my husband was sick the most important thing was spending time with each other. I have decided to wait till marriage for any sexual pleasures and that is my decision that will not change. For someone that moved to Newfoundland 9 years ago now I know more about the Avalon peninsula than those that live in it. I am an honest, respectable, fun, loving gal that is easy to please. I am not a materialistic person. I am more of a down to earth that is willing to try anything. I don’t go out to restaurants much so that is not important to me. What is most important is spending good quality of time with someone that wants to spend time with me. I love long drives and the simplest things in life. I know I am not the only woman out there that wants a decent man that has respect for women. I am not looking for a serious relationship just guy friends where I can share my interests with. For example, hiking, photography, drives, exploring and whatever else comes to mind. Being a widow is not fun trying to get back in the dating world. I am not looking for people to tell me what to do, where to move or anything like that. Just looking for respect. #respect #nodatinglife #widowlife #myrant #liveisnoteasy Смотреть полностью

Nearly eight months since Alistair died. We often cooked or prepared food together. I've eaten everything in the freezer that we made together. . This jar of pickled beetroot, complete with his scrawly masking tape label, is the last of the food that he made. Just a few pieces left now. . Pic two is him making mulled wine, a winter ritual.

Grief triggers will always be a part of our journey. As we acknowledge the loss of our loved ones and move forward with our lives, a time will come when these triggers will no longer send us reeling in pain, but serve as a connection that fills us with love and remembrance. Though they may still cause us to feel a bit melancholy at times, they will no longer have the power to torment us. We will no longer have to avoid them. We will find that the very same grief trigger that dealt us so much pain in the past, is now the one that warms our hearts and makes our loved ones feel closer to us. The same trigger now brings us peace and moments that we will always cherish in our hearts.

One of my favorite things about Nathan was his passion for life & adventure. 🖤 He literally had a new "big idea" every week! He would chase it wholeheartedly until he either made it come true or the next "big idea" struck! 😂 I do my absolute best to make the most of every day & every adventure that I get to go on. Tomorrow isn't promised to me or anyone else & I want to soak everything in while I am here. I think we get so caught up in the day to day bullshit that we forget that we aren't guaranteed the next day! I strive every day to have the same passion for life & fun adventures that Nathan had.....which has actually been a huge help in my healing process. What was your favorite thing about your loved one? My challenge for you this week: is to live out that characteristic.....even on a small scale! 🖤 #widowcoach #widowstrong #youngwidows #youngwidowsclub #thelifecoachschool #posttraumaticgrowth #strongmom #griefandlosssupport #widows #hopeforwidows #lifeafterloss #griefjourney #griefawareness #youngandwidowed #griefrecovery #widowhoodisnotforsissies Смотреть полностью

21 years ago, a boy I liked from summer camp asked me to be his girlfriend. I was not the cutest, or the fittest, and I was always so nervous; yet somehow, the cute boy in the blue shirt chose me- and I chose him right back. . A woman we worked with once, a long time ago, had been with her husband since she was 14. We were in college, and I remember asking her HOW did they make it work so long? She told me “you either work at growing together, or naturally you grow apart.” It was the single best piece of relationship advice I’d ever been given. Over and over, for 18.5 years, and until death parted us, we chose to grow together. And today, I decided that in honor of what would have been our 21st “date-a-versary,” I’d share it with “the world.” I know it’s not exceptionally profound, but I also know there are people out there who think marriages should be easy. I’ve never seen a successful marriage that’s been without work, and tough days, and even days you question it all. The beauty in it is that for every one of those days, you come back together, appreciate one another more, and grow to know how lucky you are that this amazing person chose you, and still chooses you, every day. . I will always be grateful for the boy in the blue shirt, and I will always be happy we chose each other. . Xoxo my dude ❤️ . #dateaversary #xoxo #widow #widowlife #lifeafterloss #marriage #marriageadvice #growtogether #duality #marriagegoals #lucky Смотреть полностью

Shelle Ponfil DREAM BIG..I started using the Start Today Journal by @msrachelholl

DREAM BIG . . I started using the Start Today Journal by @msrachelhollis a couple months ago. Every single day you write down 10 dreams that you made happen. Basically, writing down what you want for your future as actually already true. Have you ever tried to do this? . . 10 doesn't seem like alot in the big scheme of your life, but it was hard for me to come up with 10 at first. I wanted to make sure I was writing down actual attainable goals, and I wanted to make sure I was digging real deep into what dreams I had for my life. . . I decided to take it a step further. A dream written down with a date becomes a goal, a goal written down into stages becomes a plan, a plan backed by actions becomes your reality. So I'm breaking each one down, one at a time. . . It's impossible to put forth the effort needed for all dreams at once, so breaking them down focusing on one at a time is key. And that my friends is how you start to build the life you want, one dream at a time. 💜 Смотреть полностью

Sometimes days are just embedded into your psyche and you go through the day wondering why you feel so funky until it hits you. I’ve never been one to remember dates but Scott always did and September 15th was a day he celebrated even when I forgot. So here I am 28 years later - thankful for all the good things that came from our meeting, especially my four amazing kids. I sat out by the pool and it felt like he should be coming home from a side gig with some wedding cake and flowers, like wasn’t it just last week that he was doing that? Time is weird. Grief is tricky. Life is good. #grief #widowlife #timeflies #lifeisgood Смотреть полностью

Dear Everyone, ⁣ ⁣ Here I am..⁣ — #ThrowbackPhoto It’s been months since my last official post. 5 months to be exact but most importantly, 9 months since Michael’s passing.⁣ I have so many thoughts to share yet slightly scared of what I say next...⁣ I came across a quote and strongly believe it applies here. “She was never quite ready but she was brave” ⁣ ⁣ — What can I say? ⁣ ⁣First, thank you to the group of friends/followers that are consistently present and show up for me. Your sweet, thoughtful messages, thoughts, prayers and kind gestures have meant the world to me. I’ve gained lovely friendships and rekindled others. At times overwhelming but nonetheless, I’m truly grateful. I will never forget it. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. ❤️⁣ ⁣— Here’s the tough part ⁣ Sadness, pain, anxiety, depression, confusion ..List goes on but these are only some characteristics I’ll use. ⁣ ⁣ I took a break to be present in my new life and process everything. Pushed myself everyday and other days, not so much. Dealt w many emotions, challenges and changes all at once yet experiencing depression, that was the hardest. I was done. Physically, it took a toll on me. Suffering from anxiety/panic attacks were the scariest times of my life. Becoming dependent on medication, I felt ashamed and weak. However, I learned that this is not weakness, it’s part of being human. ⁣ ⁣ Continuing to live with it, demands a strength that most, will never know. I’m strong but I have breakdowns, set backs, anger, frustration because suffering a loss is tremendously painful. For me, losing Michael meant I lost everything and what I found people not quite understanding was, I didn’t just lose a relationship, I truly lost everything. Michael represented my future, my present, my world and I’m not wrong in saying that. ⁣(continued in comments) ⠀⠀⠀ ⇣ ⇣ ⇣ #lifeupdate #faithbased #GoverG #OurJourneyContinues #griefandloss #lifestyleblogger #torontoblogger #inspirational #canadianblogger #faithbased #faithbasedblogger #faithingod #faithjourney #mentalhealth #healingjourney #itsokaynottobeokay #july2019 #mondaymotivation #yorkiegram #potd #ootdbloggers #canadiangirl #widowlife #widowhood Смотреть полностью
