Chefchaouen, Morocco. Two years ago. Obviously I haven't moved on from it. Obviously I'm in dire need of a new adventure. #SomeoneTravelWithMePlease

Good shoes take you places.
Having a date today with my favorite little girl. We don't get as much time together as we used to now that her brother is here, but the days we do get are so fun. Now let's see how long mama can last in these shoes!
Fresh | Natural | Classic | Organic | Romantic | Joyful | Bright | Inviting | Welcoming | Timeless | Movement
This list may be seemingly random, but it sits in my desk drawer scribbled in ink on an old Marriott hotel receipt from Chip's work trip two years ago. Done in passing on a particularly confusing day of business, I didn't realize how much it would help define my work, style, and goals long term.
You see, during that season I began refining my style of photography more and more. And in an effort to put some context to the visuals, I jotted down words that resonated with me and how I wanted people to feel when they saw my photography. I thought of it mainly in the realm of weddings... but as time has gone on, much of those words have translated right into my food, travel, & branding imagery, and even into my work as a communications strategist & coach. There are certainly some I would add these days, but it makes me smile to see still how well those fit.
I don't think it's coincidence one bit... because an intentional way of creating and living seeps into all elements of life and business. Do I achieve those words every time? No way. Are there days when I feel like my work and personality is anything but those words? Absolutely. But one thing I do know?.
The process of doing the work always keeps welcoming me back in, even on the days when it feels really anything but natural.
What are 3 words you want people to feel experiencing your work? I'd love to hear!
While the little has a tutoring session in the dining room, you can find me right here...in my bedroom, plugging my @sudiosweden ear buds in and maybe even watching Netflix for an hour! 😬 Hey, it's been a long busy week and not often that camp mom gets a break during the summer! Plus, I don't want to hear how the tutoring is going. It might stress me out! 🙉😆 And guess what, I'm taking my first ever DRIVING through the city trip to Target today!! I can be brave. I can be brave. I can be brave. Hahaha! Wish me luck! Happy happy weekend friends! .

What I wanted to happen this morning was to sleep until at least 7. Nash had other plans. I decided to cave in and get up and go for our walk at 6 instead since starting Monday it'll be back to waking up about 5. Turns out 6 was a good choice. It was light enough to see but not bright enough to be hot out. There was a cool breeze, very few people, and some baby ducks out. Plus, now I can actually get a blog post up this morning at a semi-decent time seeing as it's been over a week now... #MyLifeAs#DFWBlogger#BloggerVibes

Red gingham always takes me back to my childhood. One of my nursery school uniforms was a red gingham dress that I refused to let go of even after I graduated to primary school! This is clearly a love that runs deep 😆❤ PS: you can shop *this* red gingham dress via screenshot with the new @liketoknow.it app along with the rest of my look! http://liketk.it/2s6RL #liketkit#LTKSaleAlert#LTKStyleTip#LTKUnder50#LTKCurves#LTKItBag
Not too many chokers can go from summer music festival to a friend's wedding • wear it with a gorgeous dress, wear it with denim shorts and a cute top • made with Swarovski crystals so it'll also wear well for years to come • 📸: @ironandhoney

But for now I am going to leave to this beautiful momma here! Happy Fri-yay my sweet friends!!! 💕

All that glitters ✨✨✨✨ I'm up so early this morning & I don't even have to teach today! 😭😴. Oh well, life of a morning person... I'm doing an artist takeover at @passioncolorjoy a little later today, make sure to follow over there! 💖 I'll be sharing parts of my story along with my art, and a new time lapse video of a colored resin pour. I'm also planning to go "live" on IG over there at 2pm PDT (Pacific)--I'm planning to chat about career balance, boundaries, intuition, not being a perfectionist in my art or business, and emotional process in art. Come visit me live on @passioncolorjoy for what will hopefully be an interesting chat! #brilliantaquastudios
Hi!! I'm Maison ☺️ Born and raised in Wisconsin — met my now hubby @caleb_maisonmeredith during our undergrad at The University of Wisconsin-Madison (we don't know HOW or WHEN we actually met, unfortunately!! 🙈 It's the worst part of our entire story!!). We are wedding photographers by day (and sooooooo thankful that we get to call this our job) and by "night", we are CRAZY Chipotle-enthusiasts, really bad at going to bed on time, SUPER motivated to change the conversation around marriage/sex/marriage counseling/commitment/etc., maaaaaajor lovers of our dog #littlemissvivian (yes, I know everyone is obsessed with their dog but ours is seriously the best and cutest 😉🐶), and two people just really trying hard to eat more vegetables 🥕
The most important things to know about me are that I believe in and follow Jesus, am on a truly life-transformational journey of pursuing gratefulness (#ungratefultograteful ), love being a wife, someday hope to be a momma, am a diehard Green Bay @packers fan, and come alive when I'm on the water 🐠 I NEVER thought I would be an entrepreneur but, here we are 🙌🏼💖!! 🥂 to the weekend!!!
Hey 👋 I'm Caroline. I love prosecco, pizza, films & sport (not always in that order). I never thought of myself as creative but now I realise I am! My passion is to help people find what they love & follow their dreams. Double tap if you're a dream big creative too! #fridayintroductions
That Friday feelin'! ☀️#blissedout
Almost finished my 1st week back to my day job!💃This week has been a major adjustment for us all. Lil E is rocking nursery school transition like a champ, and the others are loving camp life. I'm experiencing a full spectrum of emotion about it all, and I know it's hard on them too. The end of day reunion is the best - hugs are tighter, patience is stronger, love is beaming. Despite our best laid prep and organization, however, it hasn't been smooth sailing. The mornings are especially challenging (you know -co-operation, listening, sibling squabbles) on top of the other stressors Summer can present. [ad] @kellylbourne 's Parenting Hacks: Summer Survival Guide (*link 👆*) for parents has been a lifeline. She provides practical, effective strategies for managing all the crazy of Summer & beyond, helps us get to the core of where our stress triggers arise from, and how to manage them to keep our connection with our little people at the heart of our reactions. While this group will come to a close soon, you should totally check out the other parenting workshops @kellylbourne offers. She's kinda the coolest, non-preachy Parenting Coach around 😎 Parenting is H.A.R.D. Our management of how we respond to all the big emotions doesn't have to be. #TheParenthood#parenthoodunplugged
Have an amazing weekend with your tribe XO 💕
Praise God it's Friday! Seriously, I am stinkin' exhausted. Mr. T is whipping me into shape like nobody's business, but for right now, I just feel like I am dying 😵😴😂

May your Friday and weekend be carefree and full of beauty ✨💕
I haven't packed a single item for our trip to the Lake District. We rented a fully equipped apartment and I plan on cooking a few dinners besides breakfast. I have no idea what dinners will be yet. I mean, I haven't even packed let alone menu plan for next week 🙈😜 So I will just chuck some most frequently use herbs and spices and just go from there.
The Lake District is special to me because of Beatrix Potter. I adore her work and being there (she owned a lot of land there which later were given to the National Trust) and visiting her home brought out all sorts of emotions. We hope to do a lot of hiking, but our weather app only shows two days of that. With two dogs and the girlies, we aim for dry hiking. Muddy and drizzles ok but not proper rain. I did bookmark a few pubs and cafes. Worst case would be a bit more indoor time than we anticipate. While indoors, I hope that maybe Beatrix will be in me and I can do a bit of blog writing while the girls read, play board games, watch a movie, play on iPad, or get on each other's nerves 😂
Ok, gotta go and do last minute errands and packing. Have a great day!
Weekend loading ⏳ until then I'll be sittin pretty right here // "Engagement" ☝🏼
Anyone know where on island this was taken? Double points if you know the story behind it.

Klar med min makramélampa! Måste säga att jag blev mycket nöjd! Nu har jag nya projekt på gång... Många... Kan man ringa till jobb och säga att man inte hinner jobba för att man måste knyta makramé? #macrame
🎵 There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify
Into the wild
Canyons of youth
Oh, there's a world to fall into
Weightless we'll dance
Like kids on the moon🎵 🎧 needtobreathe 🎧 .
