On our wedding night, while all our guests were outside getting the sparklers ready for our exit, we shared a private last dance to “from the ground up” by dan+shay. we chose it because it just felt right in the midst of renovating this place, but we never could’ve known all that was in store for us. so tuesday night, after we moved all our things out of this house we worked so hard on, we played that song on his phone and we danced in our socks in the empty living room. we danced and we cried and we talked through all the memories we shared in the 2 years we called this place home. we thanked god for providing and we prayed over the newly married couple that now gets to make their own memories in this beautiful space. and the best part of all of it was that it just felt right. my heart was so full. so full of gratitude for the blessing this was and so full of hope for the next place he has waiting for us, even if we haven’t found it yet. god is faithful, y’all. and just like we turned this 75-year old dated house into a gorgeous and cozy home, he is faithful to make us new. and to provide. and clinging to that promise and hope gives me peace in the midst of all of life’s storms. 💛 #molliemason
I’m such a big believer that your bedroom should be a sacred place ✨ 🛏 ✨ and this sweet oasis sure has been that for us. we’ve only ever known this bedroom together. and i’m really sad about leaving it. but i’m grateful to know we can create sacred places wherever we go (even in a tiny apartment 🙈) #molliemason .

This was the first weekend in 9 months where we looked at each other friday night and said “what do you want to do this weekend?” 🙌🏻 we made a blanket fort in the living room and watched 3 movies, we took gunner on a two hour hike in the sunshine, we experimented with aip-friendly mint chip ice cream and we just were. we put off thinking about the move only being a week away and we soaked up our last weekend in this house we built 🏡👫🐶 joy and sadness and sweetness all in one. . http://email@example.com#liketkit#ltkhome
I only have 8 more nights to enjoy our pretty new bathroom, so you best believe i’m soakin’ up every bath i can 🛁 (horrible pun totally intended) .
i’ll be sharing all the deets of my healing plan with y’all in the next blog post, but one piece of it i can’t overstate is r e s t. with my body changing in ways i don’t like, my natural inclination is to work against it. to grid it out to change it back. but my body is very kindly and sternly reminding me that ain’t gonna work. it needs rest. it needs healing. and it needs me to believe in its ability to heal, not force it into healing.
loving my diy soothing bath salts for the ways it’s helping me stop, drop & soak. (if you need it as much as i did, the recipe is on the blog)
remember, your body is wise! if it’s responding in a way you don’t want it to, it’s because you’re doing to it something it doesn’t want you to do! trust it. love it. believe in it. #molliemason#autoimmunewarrior .
Ok y’all, i’m back, and it’s time to get super real with you. i’ve let you in on some pieces of this but i’ve been guarding the whole story. so i’ve shared it all in a blog post- my new health diagnosis, my struggle in acceptance, and my declaration of war, in all its painful and shameful detail.
here’s a taste:
“things reached their peak about 6 weeks ago. i was truly just debilitated by my anxiety. it was paralyzing. i couldn’t get through a day without crumbling under exhaustion or my whole system over-running from anxiety. my brain fog was on another level. i had no energy to make it through the day, let alone work out and move my body the way i never have struggled to. i was slowly gaining bloat and pudge over the months of stress, but then it all came on real fast and hard. i had (or lets be honest, still have now) curves i’ve never seen on my body and my normally large but strong thighs just turned to massive mush.
so i went to the doctor thinking i had pcos or some sex-hormone based syndrome. she runs a general blood panel and lo and behold…”
so many emotions in sharing this post with y’all. click the link in my bio to read the rest 💕#molliemason . http://firstname.lastname@example.org

For a girl who recently wrote a blog post titled “why (and how) i love my 4:30am alarm” i’ve done a pretty s****y job at mornings lately. i’m 7 weeks into working for myself, and i’d say the first week and half i worked h*****n crafting a new routine, but then by week 2 all 💩 hit the fan and my mornings were the first thing to go. now a month later i’m battling a new health issue and i’m floundering in my own storm of chaos. so i’m officially declaring mornings non-negotiable again. i re-read my own blog post of why i find mornings so sacred and why they are worth it, and i’m recommitting to them. it might take some time to figure out what they look like now with 7am contractor calls and lowe’s runs instead of 8am office hours, but i’m going to commit to carving out the time to nourish my body and fill my soul before the day tries to take it away from me. 🛏⏰☕️📚 if you need a kick in the b**t to get back to a morning routine, my blog post is waiting for you in my bio. let’s commit to #sacredmornings ✨🙌🏻 #molliemason

Oh hey there. just me, standing in some heart-wrenching rawness and realness. in the bedroom we haven’t slept in in 3 weeks, amongst an absolute tornado of our things that currently don’t have a home, with my swollen gut makin’ me look preggo and sawdust all over our mirror.
why in the world am i posting such a disastrous, ugly, blurry photo? .
because i’m on a mission. on a mission to tell a different story. to rewrite the scripts in my head. to squash the lies.
today, that’s the lie that i don’t have the strength. the lie that everything will be easier when this project is over. that my feed should show the pretty stuff and your eyes should never see my mess. the lie that i’ll start living the life i want to live when this whole season settles down. or the lie that i’ll start living that life when my gut doesn’t protrude from my body. the lie that this moment i’m standing in, this one right here, isn’t worthy. .
today, i’m squashing those stories for the lies that they are and writing t r u t h over them. the truth that i am worthy. that this moment itself is worthy. the truth that i can be content in a season of unrest. that my life doesn’t stop being lived because my home is a disaster. or because my body isn’t it’s best. the truth that my peace is found in something so much truer and stronger than my circumstances and sooo much deeper than my image. the truth that i can stand in this space and in this body and on this moment and be at peace. .
what are the lies you’re stomping out today and what truth are you replacing them with? 👇🏼 let’s all start living out a new script. ✨ #molliemason . http://email@example.com#liketkit#ltkhome#ltkunder50
