Adios Barcelona:(

Hi friends, 

Not sure if anyone ever reads my blog but I love that I have a little place where I can reflect and jot down things that are floating around in my head. I hope that something I say can help inspire someone else. 

I can't believe that our time in Barcelona is coming to an end. We are heartbroken about it honestly. It is quite ironic because we almost hated it when we first arrived. The first week we dealt with a lot of frustrations and road blocks. I literally was hit by an ambulance. lol It was funny. (watch our Vlog for more on that. We had some crazy people selling stuff at the beach smuggle who knows what under out blankets. Two seconds later a bunch of cops came down the hill. I was sure I was going to jail. lol That is just a few of the things that went down the first week. I literally wanted to leave so bad.

Now 4 weeks later I am so sad to leave. There are so many great lessons to be learned here. 

1. Give everything time

2. Open your mind up to other ways of doing things

3. Stay away from the ambulance haha

4. When things seem rough remember they really can be amazing, just give it a shot.

We have met some life long friends here. Be sure to follow them on inst @loveourjourney. They have four kids and they are traveling for 9 months through Europe. They are incredible people and a really good time too:). My kids love them probably more than me. lol We are so sad to be leaving them. 

I wanted to quickly just write a few things that I have learned out here...

MOTHERHOOD IS SUCH A GIFT... I knew this but I didn't KNOW this. This journey has sparked a love inside of me for motherhood. I find myself so excited everyday to explore with them and show them the great things the world has to offer them. I am lucky enough to be the person in their life to help shape how they view the world around them. It really is such a gift!

I have learned so much about myself. I know that everyone has their thing that makes them feel safe, content and happy. For me that is exploring and pushing myself to do things that scare me. Living big is part of me and I have found so much happiness deep down in my soul as I walk miles and miles a day seeing new incredible things. 

Good Friends really do make things a little better!

Worship is something that is so personal and I truly feel deep down in my soul that we were all meant to worship in different ways. A wise person once explained it to me like a language. We all have different avenues to our spiritual side. I have loved seeing the devotion and strength in people who don't speak my same language and live a completely different way of life. 

Focus on the people who truly love you for you and build you up and want you to succeed, give those people parts of you and guard yourself from those who want to only take. 

Try to loose track of the days and live in the moment. Stay up late if you feel like it, let your kids go to sleep and midnight if it works and create lasting memories while doing it.

Barcelona, we have loved you and we hope to come back soon and spend more time. Jared said the other day that this has been one of his favorite months ever! I would have to agree:). This truly has been an experience of a lifetime. 

Now bring on the rest of our journey...

Parts of me while traveling...

Here are the things that have been on my mind while traveling in a nutshell... My blog is my safe place to share parts of me, so here it is. These lessons I am learning have been very powerful while traveling...

LIFE IS NOT HAPPENING TO US IT IS HAPPENING FOR US!!!!! This was HUGE for me... I have thought about this everyday. It helps me embrace my personal challenges.

Divorce your story that wasn't working for you in the first place and Marry the truth! Then and only then will you have the breakthrough you have been looking for. - Tony Robbins

We all do many things in our lives to accomplish the things we set out to accomplish. Is it fulfilling? They are two very different things. We need to make sure that everything we are doing is really fulfilling our souls. That is what creates happiness.

Be in control of your own mind. Think of it like a muscle, it takes time to build but it is worth it. Be aware of all of your thoughts." You become your thoughts."- As a man Thinketh

Try something new everyday, big or small. Stimulate your brain by exploring something new. Plan something exciting for you personally each day, big or small. 

Instead of sulking in the same problems that have been going on for years. Examine your part in it and why things are dysfunctional and take responsibility to change your part in it.

Find joy in motherhood and being a wife. Make each day as enjoyable as possible so it doesn't always feel like work. Find a sense of enjoyment in showing your children new and exciting things. Being a mom is incredible, we get to help shape the way our children view the world. (No pressure on us, right). 

Let the small things roll of your back and remember that your man really does just say what he means. When your thoughts start to race about scenarios that may or may not be, recognize the thought and then move on. Don't sit on it. Focus on the truth and what you KNOW. Don't worry about things you can't control.

Be more specific with yourself and what you put out into the world. Only then will they truly manifest.

Don't let fear stop you from living big and creating a life that you are proud of! 

Our lives with HosHimotos

I was diagnosed with Hoshimotos a little over 3 years ago. It was the best thing that ever happened to me. I found these incredible doctors who taught me how to understand my body and what it was trying to tell me my entire life. I truly believe they are the reason I was able to conceive a healthy second baby. 

Jared was just diagnosed with the same thing. He is in treatment right now and is feeling so much better already. I can't wait to see where he is six months from now. One out of nine men are diagnosed with Hoshimotos. 

WHAT IS HOSHIMOTOS?... Hashimoto's disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam's apple. The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body's activities.

We were interviewed on Good Things Utah about all of this. Watch our segment HERE

We owe so much to the Red River clinic. They truly are changing the health of so many. It really is remarkable. If you want to know more about them go to their website HERE

Follow our diets while we RV across the US this summer for 3 months on Instagram. We are the @johnsonsunplugged. It will be a big part of our trip as Jared is being treated during the three months. 


I am lucky enough to design clothing that I love and also makes me smile. Jami Peterson is truly remarkable and I feel so honored to be creating a line off of her Swag-eez line. We have been working very hard on this and we just launched the "Swageez Bree" line on Friday on Good Things Utah. Watch the segment here. Also you can view more of my designs at
