Im sorry I’ve been silent. I know the last post I posted said to “get back on the horse,” and when I wrote that I really thought things were calming down and I was ready to do just that. Little did I know that our family was about to walk through the fire yet again, and in a way I would have never expected. My emotions have been all over the place, and I have felt like Nick and I just can’t catch a break. We have tried to be joyful in the hardship but to be honest, it really just has taken a toll on our family and on our hearts. I have reached what I thought was my tip top emotional capacity and then there just seems to always be more crap. Yes, I just wrote crap. Sorry mom-- I know that is not the nicest word to write, but it really is the best word to describe all the things. Crap.
All that to say, I just haven’t had anything to give. I still don’t on most days, but the days when I do are starting to come more often and I really have two things to thank for that-- God, and Maskcara. We are still in the thick of the crap, but it gets easier, my “emotional capacity” seems to be getting bigger every day, and on a totally surface level, my puppy really helps with the joy thing. Thanks God for bringing him to us exactly when you did. We know that was you. For those of you who care, this is Bauer, the newest addition to our family and the greatest ball of endless joy in the midst of all the crap. We love him
Now let’s talk about Maskcara. What is Maskcara and why is it here on UnBroken? Maskcara is a much longer story than this, but I’m trying to be short and sweet. Basically, I needed a new beauty regimen because mine was costing me wayyy too much so I did some research and found Maskcara Beauty. I love the makeup (it's basically magical and if anyone wants to be shocked and amazed, let me know I can hook you up), and that’s great and all but more than the makeup I fell in love with the company. Cara, the creator has a mission to make all women feel beautiful and I couldn’t think of a better mission. If we as people don't feel beautiful and wonderful about ourselves, how the heck can we get out there and “UnBreak The People?” So, THAT is why Maskcara.
I am now an Independent Artist which means I help people fall in love with the makeup, skin care line, and all around company, but I really became an Artist to give myself another platform to help UnBreak broken people. Since becoming an Artist, I have been more encouraged, affirmed, and personally stretched than by any other group of women, really ever. All the artists want everyone to succeed and want to all work together to help women fully embrace, and truly know how beautiful they are. How could I NOT get behind that?
What does that mean for UnBroken?
This all just means that I am going to add Maskcara to UnBroken as well as get back to blogging, and providing resources to all of you to help you “UnBreak The People” around your table. I love all of you and am so thankful for all you do to UnBreak the broken around you. If you aren't already, take a minute to follow my social media accounts:

So, as we say in Maskcara, "get out there gorgeous", and go "UnBreak The People!"
