Going into the new week like this guy... 🤩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Tuesday friends! It's a new week, so that means NEW goals and a restart!! This week for me is a health and self-care week. Since it's technically my slow week (even though I have a ton of accounting, organizing digital files, marketing, etc. to do, it's technically a slow photo taking week), I figured it would be a great time to focus on getting healthy(ier) so this week includes some new smoothie recipes and some more yoga flow. Oh, and yes, I'll be tending to my To Do list as well, hoping to crush those too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, what are you doing this week? What are your goals to reach or are you already crushing them this Tuesday!? Or if you have an awesome, fabulous smoothie recipe you want to share, I'd love to try it out! Send me some Tuesday love! ✨
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -- Martin Luther King, Jr. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday my friends! We are gearing up for the long (and dry) weekend here in Orange County. Our kiddo has been learning about Martin Luther King Jr. these last few weeks of school and we've been talking about how we would like to serve our community to honor MLK Day of Service. Friends, are you doing something this weekend to serve your community? Let me know what you're doing, I'd love to see what other opportunities are out there! ❤️
Rain, rain, go away... 🎶 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Day 4 of this rainstorm has me missing the beach, hanging in my backyard and watching some killer sunsets. I'm officially going to say that this California girl is ready to get back to the regularly scheduled beach weather we all pay so much money for. Let's reiterate my love for our weather by longly looking at this beach session from a typical California winter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, let's take a poll -- do you prefer the rain or the sunshine? Let's hear it in the comments below! 👇🏼
Rainy day kisses ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Wednesday friends! It's mid-week already and due to the rain, I have been crushing my To-Do list. What have you accomplished so far this week?
This rainy week has me reading more than usual. And I have the perfect read for this weather. I'm sure the entire world has now heard of the #konmari method of organizing -- I love it and am 100% on board but I wanted to dive deeper into the reasoning and the spiritual process of the tidying up method. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Full disclosure, we are a family that believes in the theory of less is more. Our household is pretty minimalist as is our theory of material possessions. I am a firm believer that open space allows positive energy to flow freely (which is why we don't have much furniture). I also think my minimalist and organizational preferences have intensified since becoming a mom...I mean, all those toys! Let's be honest though, at the end of the day, I want my space to be mine -- which means no toys or any semblance that a child runs my space for 90% of my day. At the end of the day, I want my house to be my sacred space. It's not always easy, but we do try hard to stay tidy and organized. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any friends out there who have read the book? I picked up a copy at the local library (don't have to store it or donate it when I'm done 😜) and can't wait to get into it. What are your thoughts on the minimalist lifestyle and how have you found success in it? Any fellow minimalist mamas out there with tips on how they make it work? Anyone have a spiritual connection to it? I'd love to hear your thoughts! ❤️#sparkjoy
Rainy day vibes make me want to bundle up all warm and cozy...and maybe take a nap. Maybe... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Southern California friends, I hope you are staying dry, driving safely and enjoying the rain! We've got an entire week of rain in the forecast. 😬 Let's just hope that our kids burned off enough energy at school before they come home. 🤞🏼
Taking a minute today to remind me (and you) that we are where we are meant to be right now, from all the hard work that we put in last year. That doesn't mean that you won't be somewhere else down the line (next year, or even tomorrow). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of my 2019 goals this year is to grow my business - learning more about the behind the scenes dailies like social media, newsletters, marketing, etc. while also doing more thinking out of the box, creating awesomeness with my sessions and hopefully reaching out to new faces this year! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And of course, hoping to balance it all out with routine self-care, being a good mom and working on personal projects so I can keep creating. That's not too much to ask right? 😝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, I want to hear about what you're working on this year. Share a tidbit or more of your personal or professional goals with me. I would love to cheer you on. #communityovercompetition
