Fun in the sun, here we come!!! Tomorrow Makenzie and Makayla turn NINE and I am not ok. Flashing back through all the years and all the feelings.

Happy Father's Day to all the incredible dad’s out there! I hope you have had a great day! Happy Father’s Day to our family and friends that are now dads! Watching so many we love in their element as dads is the best! Happy Father’s Day to all the men in my life who have been a father figure to me, from the best uncles, family, friends, church, chosen family and beyond! The girls are so fortunate to now have so many of the same in their lives. Thank you to those who love our girls like their own (you know who you are)! I am so grateful to have the best Dad that has always been there no matter what! Watching him now as P-Paw with our girls is a joy I could have never dreamt up! I am thankful for an awesome Father in Love who treats me as his own and loves our girls and us! And to the number one dad to M and M…I knew you were meant to be a dad since day one, but I had no idea how AMAZING you would be at all the dad things! M and M have no clue yet just how blessed they are, but I am here to remind you that you are our rock and hung the moon in their eyes. We love you so BIG babe!!! We had the best weekend celebrating you at our favorite place (swipe right for some fun videos)! Sending so many hugs and lots of love out to all today from afar…and hopefully soon in real life! Happy Father’s Day!!!
And that’s a wrap on the @cultivatewhatmatters 2021 #Powersheets photo shoot!!! What. A. Week!
One of the brightest spots of the last few months was officially launched today, and I am feeling all sorts of emotions! We have talked over lunch about doing this for years. You have to go watch @kristinwinchester ‘s IG Live from this morning for the rest of the story and to understand His perfect timing (I might have cried through all of it)! Who knew building a website with a dear friend would be so lifegiving and build an even sweeter bond that will be forever cherished?! This sweet KNW home on the internet is a true reflection of her and real life including but not limited to hot rollers, celebrations, spin mops, sweet tea, and TWINS (fellow twin momma bond)!!! I am so excited that the world now has a space to go to get to know the gift that @kristinwinchester is and see a peek into her heart! I am forever grateful for how our lives have been weaved together over the years and all the details along the way both throughout life and this website! KNW, thank you for trusting me on this journey! So proud of you and just LOVE YOU! If a website could be a person...this is YOU!!! Friends, help us celebrate by taking a peek and letting us know what you think (just click the link in my profile). 🥳🥳💕🎉🎉 P.S. Yes to all those wondering, I am available to customize websites/blogs, but more on that another day 😉

I don’t think I will ever get used to seeing photos I’ve had the privilege of capturing out in the world...especially being used for creative marketing materials by businesses that I LOVE! This shoot was by far one of the highlights of this year and just happened to take place days before everything shut down...when we could hug and dance and be silly with the sweetest little models! Today @cultivatewhatmatters launched ALL the incredible products for their summer collection and it’s been fun reliving this shoot day. I truly LOVE each new product but my favorite has to be the Girls Goal Planner. I’m so excited to dig in with the girls!!! So many reasons I love this coming tomorrow so stay tuned. 💕💕 Styled by: @joslynchase_ HMUA: @krisbrightbeauty
Happiest of birthdays to the guy who literally carries us through most days. You are a gift to all who know you and we are forever grateful to call you the best husband and dad in the world! We love you so BIG @cphuff11 💕💕 Thank you to all who helped make this day as special as possible for our guy! xo
Day by day we have watched these beautiful peonies bloom, cut them when its time, placed them in vases until we ran out and started using glasses or whatever we could find, given them to loved ones (at a social distance of course) to brighten their day, and taken a bazillion photos. Slowly we ran out of counter space so I decided to turn our dining room into a flower room (swipe to see). Earlier this week as I was moving flowers outside to tell people to come get some, the girls saw and wanted to be involved. What started as simple “free flowers” quickly turned into a fun project to bring others joy. The girls made thank you cards and added their unique touches, we gathered supplies for people to use, set out encouragement cards for all to take in hopes they would go brighten someone else’s day with them, made signs, and set up a little display. By the end of the day almost all the flowers were gone! Today, We have a whole new batch of fresh cut blooms at different stages and are setting up again for others to come enjoy. If you are local (or know someone who is share this with them), we would love for you to come pick some fresh peonies from our porch! Send me a message for details. Officially calling this our #FreeFlowerFriday
