Not much better than being able to walk in to a cafe and have everyone welcome you in like family. Sarcasm, lattes and frose mandatory.

Have you ever had that moment where you think “holy crap, that was not in the plan”? We have, time and time again. Sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes it’s ugly. But at the end of the day, we hold tight to God’s promises and remember to take it one step at a time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think of the scene in Aladdin where he asks Jasmine if he trusts her - praying like crazy for that magic carpet to show up. It’s exhilarating and amazing. It’s life.

We’ve been doing some “Bigger Picture” thinking today. Sometimes it’s important to take that step back from everything and discuss the larger things! Exciting time’s ahead! #plumandashby
So let's be real Y'all! Some days are rough and extremely challenging. But those are the days that proves what you are made of. Being an entrepreneur is not that easy as many make it sound and everyday is not always roses and peonies either. Some days you have to pull on Jesus' strength more than usual and press through the day with everything you've got. Although I'd like to tell you that I was looking like this yesterday, I'm not able to because truthfully it was one of those days where I had to set the to-do list aside and just be. Running on no sleep from the night before I decided to do what's necessary so I was able to make it through the day. What about you? How do you get through a challenging day?

As I sip my coffee in the Denver airport, today’s #workspacewednesday is inspired by the many dedicated babes around me who are hustlin’ on-the-go. Travel is my greatest inspiration for both creativity and exhaustion, and as I open my laptop next to many a hustlin’ babe in this crowded terminal, I have a new and hearty appreciation for anyone with the discipline to work wherever they have to, and wherever they can. Tag a babe who’s mastered the work-on-the-road hustle, and spill your secrets in the comments! -Mara 📸: @lindencosocial #babeswhohustle

Question 💭 Can change happen in an instant??? . ✨ If so how? . If you want to know my thoughts on this subject go to the story and swipe up - I speak about the reality behind ‘instant change’ ✨ . But here I would to hear from you - Do you believe change is possible in an instant? 👏🏼👇🏼
Pretending for a day to be living the dream, kids surrounding almost every inch of my body be damned.

Yes it is! Be encouraged with me! From heaven he will send a father’s help to save me. He will trample down those who trample me. Pause in his presence He will always show me love by his gracious and constant care. My heart, O God, is quiet and confident. Now I can sing with passion your wonderful praises! Psalms 57:3‭, ‬7 TPT
Me and my little adventure buddy 💙
I wish I had the confidence of Avery Mo. Completely oblivious to his poor wardrobe choice, Ave made a bee-line to the water, kicked off his shoes, and jumped in. I like to think when God said those with child-like faith will inherit the kingdom, he had this in mind. Let me be fearless and oblivious to all eyes but Jesus as I jump head-first into the water. I don’t want to be an ankle-deep Christian.

A really wise lady taught me a couple of things about perfectionism a few years ago.⠀ ⠀ 1. When we’re focused on being a perfectionist, we turn inward. It gives us a selfish view of ourselves and others.⠀ 2. It focuses on what we’re doing wrong and doesn’t acknowledge the good.⠀ ⠀ Perfectionism really doesn’t get us that far because guess what?? We as humans are never going to be perfect. We can strive to be bettering ourselves every day, moving closer to perfection, but I notice that when I get stuck in the weeds of being “perfect,” I’m miserable. Whose definition of perfection am I even going off of? Why am I driving myself insane because of what they think? Why am I so focused on myself? Maybe I should get outside and serve someone else today.⠀ ⠀ Now don’t get me wrong: I think that having high standards and intentional goals is awesome. It gives us something to work on and BECOME. Having high expectations for yourself or your work is great, having impossible expectations for yourself (perfection) is destructive.⠀ ⠀ I love handmade paper because it has a story to tell. It’s natural edges and slightly uneven color let us know that it is unique and beautiful and amazing. And it required a lot of work to make it look that good! Do you think we as humans take a look at ourselves and our unique qualities and think, “Wow, those things are amazing, and look how far I’ve come!” Probably not.⠀ ⠀ Give me a 👍 in the comments if you think we could be a little nicer to ourselves. What are some things (or people!) you recognize as beautiful even though they may not be perfect? Please share!!

I’m switching our grocery shopping day from Friday to Wednesday. Today was the trial run and I have to say that there aren’t as many people shopping on Wednesday’s so it wasn’t as stressful with all three kids (Audrey was in the wrap) since there wasn’t as much waiting in line. Another reason I’m switching days is because our trash goes out on Wednesday nights so if I do my food prep and clean out the fridge on Tuesday’s/Wednesday’s then smelly food isn’t sitting around as long. Wednesday’s also tend to be our least busy days (of course next Wednesday is the one day with a ton going on) and when William starts preschool in September he will be in school on Wednesday mornings so I can just take two kids grocery shopping. 👍🏻 #iamajoyfulhomemaker
What could possibly be better than Summer?!? ☀️💦🌈🎈

{ EMO MAM } In de maand van de verjaardag van mijn dochtertjes word ik altijd een beetje extra emotioneel en zéker als ik foto’s terugkijk. Dit pareltje van een foto heb ik opnieuw bewerkt en as maandag deel ik in een tutorial wat ik precies heb gedaan ✨💫 maar misschien kun je het raden? ✨💫

What's on your desk? ✏️ 📚 I typically have so many post-it notes, pens and planners strewn about that you can't see the desktop. I decided to do a series of #instastories today showing you the more meaningful things I keep on my desk. Check it out and let me know if you feel triggered 😂🙈

Holy growth spurt, Beatrix is huge all of the sudden and I totally understand why people constantly ask me if they’re twins. 😱 Also, pulling all her hair to the top of her head like this was the best idea ever. 😍 #sailorandbeatrix #sailorbravewarren #beatrixasherbell
Idk why my cleavage look big in these pictures but 🗣it’s fucking amazing😂 🥀🥀 #loveyourself #naturalhair #naturalhairstyles #chooselovely #nothingisordinary #positivequotes #seekthepositive
I tell myself every summer that I’m going to go berry picking and that I’ll come home with pails and pails of fresh berries and I end up NEVER doing it! It would be so beneficial for all the baking I love to do with berries but still, I end up buying them at the grocery store instead. 🍓 Do you enjoy going berry picking? Are you an avid berry picker or does your laziness get the best of you like it does me? 😂
I had a bad day yesterday. And I’m okay with that. 💆🏼‍♀️ So many of y’all reached out to me not just to offer your sweet words of encouragement (which were so amazing!), but also to share with me that you have bad days, too. 🌻 One of my biggest goals for this little corner of the social media world is to give y’all space for more than just the pretty, curated highlight reel. I so cherish this little community + I am committed to always being honest and transparent with you - and I hope it encourages you to do the same. ✨ So here’s to the behind the scenes and the bloopers of life - because they’re what make us stronger, smarter, kinder, and better humans. . . . . #batonrougephotographer #louisianaphotographer #neworleansphotographer #batonrougela #nolaphotographer #idigbr #createcultivate #225style #geauxbr #gobr #creativepreneur #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #theeverydayproject #chooselovely #seekinspirecreate #darlingdaily #theeverygirl #alittlebeautyeveryday #seeksimplicity #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #abmhappylife #mybeautifulmess #lovelysquares #thehappynow #socalitylouisiana #thenativecreative #sweetbatonrouge #solovelysofree
Girls, you know your brand better than anyone—your origins, your vision, your mission, your goals, your company culture. . But when it comes to conveying your brand qualities to a designer, you might find difficulty in conveying what your brand is all about. . So how can you accurately communicate your brand? . Try a mood board! . Here are a couple of tips to help you create a Moodboard :- . ✔️ Create a list of 3 - 5 key words that accurately describe/reflect your brand; ✔️ Use Pinterest and start pinning textures, images, quotes and patterns which reflect the above key words. ✔️ Hop on to Canva or Photoshop and create your Moodboard. . Enjoy your creations and don't forget to tag me in your Moodboards. xo . .
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. { Melody Beattie } ^^ As I reflect over the last few weeks of travel and the removal from our typical rhythms and surroundings, I am grateful. ^^ I'm grateful for the parts that filled my little tank: the soul-nourishing conversations, snuggles with my new nephew, the spray of the ocean waves, and the vibrant hues of #houstonheights wall art. I'm grateful for concentrated time to heal and sleep and move slowly. I'm grateful I was able to hug the one who, years ago, saved my life and grateful for intentional moments to process the past six months. ^^ I'll be honest and admit it's typically easy for me to zero in on the bleak: the setbacks, adversity, health issues paired with scary diagnoses, grief, anxiety…you know, the things that no one really likes to talk about, and the things that can keep one in a dark, inner headspace if she lets it. ^^ But, the more I find myself enmeshed in seasons where blessings and adversity appear to have some sort of love affair, even more do I begin to recognize more fully the power of gratitude. ^^ The amazing part about intentional gratitude is not denying any of the hard, but rather looking deeper into reality to see the good and positive aspects that may go overlooked. Gratitude enables us to dim the difficult so hope can shine through. We find beauty in the mundane, and a stillness in the storm. Feasts in the scarcity, and richness along the journey. ^^ Gratitude propels us forward and it changes us along the way🌿 #gratitudejournal
Seriously suffering from a heat wave and dreaming about a glass of cold rose or prosecco
I have a confession: getting a puppy has thrown me completely off guard to the point where nothing I expected could have prepared me for this bundle of fun 🐶 . I haven't exercised in weeks, I'm working from the sofa and I'm completely out of routine. . But there is a silver lining. Lola is making me make time for myself and others. She's bringing people together and helping me practice my patience. She's helping me learn and grow as a person. We had a tough few days (and I know there'll be more tough moments) but we can see the other side. I've got so many things to work on that I can't wait to share with you. Roll on puppy classes and roll on September! 🙌💚

favorite summertime hobby: daydreaming 💭
Usually when I cook + bake, I clean as a go (I have some major clean freak issues) 😝 but when H asked me if he could help bake with me this morning, I pushed my OCD aside and let him join. After all, always having a clean house isn’t the one memory I want my kids to have of me. I want them to remember me as a mama that gave them a healthy freedom to learn + explore at their own pace. I’m working toward letting go of those habits that care more about the mess instead of the memory 🖤
Everything I do, I do for you 🌾 Taking a moment this evening to appreciate life’s small gifts, like the grass brushing against your leg, the sun beating down on your face and this little boy saying ‘Mummy, you are my angel’ #bestillmyheart

I’m staring down a long to-do list that includes tutoring and lettering and packing and cleaning and all of the -ings you can think of that sound like rubbish. I don’t think this quote means that we should despise our to-do lists, but rather that we should be ready and excited for the things that pop up that excite us. So today I’ll enjoy my flowers (how quirky is this one?) from an off-the-to-do list friend (@bseventsandfloral ) and an off-the-to-do list project (@thebigfakewedding ).

@drcarolineleaf is a Christian neuroscientist and although she doesn’t know it, a member of my inner circle. She has completely changed how I understand and take care of my thought life, and God used her online 21 Day Brain Detox got me through some very uncertain times. . The biggest thing she’s taught me is that we are ALWAYS saying something to ourselves and about ourselves in our minds. Everything we do flows from those thoughts. . Try this out and see. Keep a notepad with you and write down your thoughts and things you are saying in your mind. Are they positive or negative? . Is it “I can’t do this” or are you saying “I am successful.”? Is it “I’m failing” or “I am figuring this out.” Is it “I’m a disappointment” or “I am making everyone proud.” . 2 Cor 10:5 tells us to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. The enemy will continuously try to keep us saying negative things in our mind, but our job is to replace those thoughts with truth and speak what God, our creator, says about us and be obedient in our faith. . Repeat and speak what God says about you: overcomer, perfectly you, full of gifts, strong in Him, qualled and capable. Make sure those are the things you are saying about yourself, so that your actions flow from there! 💞 __________________ #YouAreQualled
Happy Wednesday! 🌻 I finished "The Mermaid" by Christina Henry last night and now i'm reading The Girls by Emma Cline. This book is so perfect for today's weather. 😄 . #bookstagram #currentlyreading #coffeeaddict
Anyone else have super dry skin in the winter? 🙈 As much as I prefer the cold weather, I hate how dry it leaves my hands and body. _________________________________________________ The Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm (around R99) is heavenly! It has a thick, balm consistency so it takes a while to absorb into the skin. I usually use this balm on my elbows, cuticles and lips and it has been very effective in relieving dryness. The Rain Biologie Kalahari Melon Hand Cream (around R99) is a lovely, moisturizing hand cream that contains shea butter, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, Kalahari melon oil, and Aloe Ferox leaf extract. This non-greasy, fast-absorbing product is quite creamy and very nourishing for dry hands. It also works well as a cuticle moisturiser. _________________________________________________ In terms of keeping my skin moisturised throughout the entire day, I love using either the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion, or the Afriderm Body Butter, or any Palmer's lotion and I sometimes add a few drops of Bramley's Magnolia Tissue Oil for extra moisture. What are your go-to products to keep dry skin at bay? Let me know below! #burgundyxeucerin #burgundyxrain
A couple weeks ago I felt compelled to read and really study Ecclesiastes. I’ve never fully understood why, from the surface, Solomon - who wrote other books in the Bible - could also write a (seemingly) depressing & hopeless book included in the Bible and therefore God-breathed..... // Chapters 1-3 repeat over and over this idea that there’s no meaning to anything in life. Pretty dramatic stuff! The deeper I dig I realize this mindset is pre-Messiah. That there’s no point in working hard for things that will be gone after you die. (Making the only striving thats of any worth, Kingdom work) And this King Solomon who admits to indulging in everything life offers (also guilty of🙋🏻‍♀️) every woman, food, alcohol, jewel, garden, every form of entertainment, everything he wanted. Not one of those things ever gave his life meaning and nothing he would carry with him after he dies. Even wisdom itself, without actually knowing God, is empty. This stuff is soooo hard to swallow. It reminds me of the hymn lyrics “you can have all this world but give me Jesus” Solomon is relentless on looking at life without Jesus and seeing zero point to living. // I’ve spent over 2 weeks now rereading the first 3 chapters, soaking in the hopelessness that weighs on a heart without Jesus. If you aren’t living for Jesus then what are you living for? And what happens to that life you worked so hard for when you die? There’s only 3 things that will last even after you die: your relationships with people, your relationship with God, and God’s Word. Comment if you’ve read through this book too. I gotta know more!! #instablog #meaningofmarriage #marriageprep #bloggervibes #thatauthenticfeeling #simplyadventure #chooselovely #slowlylived #newblogpost #instagramblogger #graceupongrace #christianblogger #shereadstruth #propelwomen #godsword #ecclesiastes
