Have y’all heard about the thing where when you go out to eat you leave your phone face down in the middle of the table so no ones on it?? I love it - if you know me I’m all about quality conversation. Anywhoooo - now your phone can sit there all pretty bc these cases are in the shop! 🌻
There's a latté I wanna tell you...
If you've followed my page, you're probably like, "wtf is going on over there with this chick? Muscles+meal prep one minute & now it's zenspiration + self-love?"
Ehemm, ya, 'bout that.
I don't think anyone ever goes to the Dr's thinking they're about to be diagnosed with a rare + incurable disease that stripes them of all their passions.
meal prep business? Gone.
house I worked so hard for? Yup. Gone too.
My daughter + I had our entire lives boxed up + stored for a date that is stbd + now we're snuggled up in a shared bedroom at my parent's house.
Pause for short reflection: can I just get real? Sharing a room, 🛏️, closet + 🛁 with my 4 year old is some challenging shit. My girl is my world, but dear gawd I loved the space our house graced us with. ( Come on, I'm not going to sell all smiles in the middle of a root canal.) The healing is necessary. I'm over the moon thankful for it. But who said that these kind of adaptions have to be easy?
In lieu of major life shifts, (+ a declaration of necessary sanity,) my passions needed re-routing. So for any or all of you that find my self-discovery + life transitions revolting; it's been a real hoot. I'll catch you on the flip side, no offenses taken. 😘✌️
But to the rest of my tribe;
Hey you. I see you. I love you. And I thank you for taking the time to walk down this really crazy journey with me.
So.......This whole "sitch" has me thinkin'.
I want to know you better. The real you. I'm the first to sign up for filters but all selfies aside...I'm not here to do anything but remind you that even when life 🦆ing sucks sometimes, even when the pain of change or the excruciating slime of monotony overwhelms you; you have one thing that billions before you don't currently have.
Life. A 🖤beat. An opportunity to express + create beauty + love all around You. Yes, even in the middle of a shit storm. That even though you're not where you want to be or if you feel alone in your darkness, that there's someone else (duh, me!) searching for light too.
So drop me a line. Hit up mah dm. Let's chat life. Looking forward to getting to know you 😘
Day 1 of10 on the #fall10x10 challenge and I’m keeping things monochromatic with my warm weather fall capsule. I moved back to Miami earlier this year from New York, so I’ll be spending fall in warm weather this year. It has yet to cool down so the sweaters I own will only be used for indoors
Madewell alto scoop tee
Topshop raw hem straight leg jeans
Halogen cashmere sweater
Bag & Mules secondhand thrifted
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
Who’s this handsome guy?? 😍😍♥️
** Boss started plucking after he got extremely sick several years ago, and the vet who replaced his regular one traumatized him on the exam table. He’s all better now, but his belly feathers won't grow back. His humans still think he’s handsome as heck though 😎
@goinghome.co taught me how to shoot from sunrise to sunset. She took me from coast to coast, north to south, and to every coffee shop in between. She taught me how to schedule trips and how to maximize time, and how to chase sunsets. She taught me how to balance whites, capture light, edit without using M5. Last week @ethanbarber.co and i went to Washington. We tried to build a Paige like trip. We drove way into the night to get near the perfect sunrise coastal spots. We drove all day to ensure we’d hit golden light at westward facing locations. We used cameras she introduced us to. We drank so much coffee. We met people she introduced me to. Yet something was missing. The partner was missing. We needed her. When the universe provides you a friend, an advocate, and a partner....never ever ever lose sight of the value of that. #liveauthentic
As women, we hold so much beauty & magic in our essence. We are capable of so many things. The main one being the ability to create life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I've been thinking of all the women in my life that have/are going through this journey and I think of how incredible it is. To have life growing inside.
Even if it's not a physical baby you carry but perhaps a creative baby or your own business baby, we as women have the ability to give life to things. And I just want to say, remember that and remember how powerful you are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy Monday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
