Something about the outdoors has always been a place of healing for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My heart seems to find rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The chaos in my head calms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I begin to feel restored + alive again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope you are able to find yourself outside this week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Where do you feel most alive? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We live in a broken world. Unjust, hateful, unbalanced world. Hatred is laced into our normal lives. It’s so disguised we don’t even acknowledge it. Here’s the thing...ignorance isn’t bliss. It’s just ignorance. We are all made is Gods image...beautifully and wonderfully made. One doesn’t overshadow the other because of race, gender, status, beliefs -fill in the blank. I challenge you to press into the discomfort and unveil the very real discrimination that very much exists in our world today. Peel back the layers to reveal the evil that is disguised as normal. Dig deep into your own heart and see the brokenness within. It is uncomfortable. It is ugly. It is needed. Let’s listen, grow, and be apart of change.
What does SUCCESS mean to you?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Okaaayyy here’s the deal, success is not one size fits all! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The world tries to tell us that a six figure salary, that massive home, or that car is “success.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Girl, they got it all wrong! To really find out what success means to you...it takes a lot of self reflection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe it means flexibility in your life to spend TIME how you want. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe you simply like to CHALLENGE yourself and accomplishing milestones is when you feel most successful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe you want to leave an IMPACT in the world through your work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe you feel most alive when you can simply CREATE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My hope for you is that you are able to let go of the shiny finical goals and gravitate to what truly makes you come alive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What makes you come alive? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eloping is NOT second best to a traditional wedding. With everything going on many couples are now considering eloping. Before you write it off as a disappointment let me shine some light on the subject! I am especially passionate about elopements because they strip down the fluff and focus entirely on the couple. Now you can create a wedding day with a blank slate. You no longer have to spend your entire day rushing from one photo grouping to the next. YOU create a day around activities you love - not around a photo timeline! Imagine a day creating memories instead of a quick hi/bye to hundreds of guests. Let go of the stress because let’s be real - big weddings are stressful. I hope you view elopements as a real option not something you have to settle for because of COVID. What activities would you include on your elopement day?!
