Okay, so I have 2 parts to this post. —————————————————————————
Part 1: I’m starting to plan my 25th birthday. We are heading to Nashville, TN and I am SO excited! —————————————————————————
Definitely already have a few cafés lined up to visit, including this one. —————————————————————————
Any recommendations for places to visit? —————————————————————————
Part 2: Life can suck sometimes. Sometimes, okay most of the time, life throws you some curve balls and sometimes you can’t dodge them & you can’t catch them — they hit you right in the gut and knock the wind out of you. —————————————————————————
This week, life has chucked a couple of those curve balls my way and well..they’ve all hit me in the gut. So that’s cool. ——————————————————————————
I’ll listen to some music and hope it helps. I’ll drink some lattes and hope they help. I’ll take a walk at sunset and admire all those gorgeous colors in the sky and for a few minutes, it helps. But what’s next? —————————————————————————
What do you do when you feel like giving up is the only option? How do you pull yourself out of that hole?

happy hump day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Getting ready for next week which means a lot around here! 💁🏻♀️ Decorating for Christmas, print shop stufffff 🤫, and wrapping up a few special things. Tag someone who you’re excited to spend Thanksgiving with! 🧡
You can do it all, but you can’t do it all well... a simple concept that I’ve been working on personally for 6 months. #bestdecisionever
I’ve been shaving off bits and pieces of my offerings one at a time, saying no to more things than I can count, and making more time for me. The trimming will continue, and I highly recommend that you all take a moment to evaluate all that you’re giving whether it’s personally or professionally. If you want to get really good at something, you have to let a lot of things go. What will you let go of?
Things have been so busy lately. It always seems this way when the holidays are around the corner, right? So much to do, and all I’m wanting to do is jump into bed and chill 😂 #casalaurelcanyon
Been reflecting on this lil diddy for a bit and today I’m just thinking how cool it is that EVERYTHING is made beautiful in its own way and time. Like the pain you’re feeling right now?
There’s beauty in that.
That feeling of broken helplessness?
There’s beauty in that.
The self harm you’ve committed?
There’s beauty in that (not the romanticism of it itself but the freedom from it is sweeter than anything just to be clear). Heck even the really ugly stuff like our selfishness or feelings of superiority, that’s one step closer to being broken down and reshaped, so even that has beauty in it!
It’s just really cool especially considering after I drew this I literally looked at it and said “this is SO ugly.” I just know God looked at me and was like “haha okay kid you don’t even know yet”
what a guy
Megan. Age 28. Loves to climb trees. Forgets that if it’s rained the tree will be wet and slippery and she will spend the day in wet jeans.

Nothing needs to be epic. Just focus on what you love to do, enjoy creating, and existing in a manner that’s true to you. Don’t let the ‘gram convince you otherwise. #wanderwherethewifiisweak

I lose my insurance today.
so that sucks..
but it’s been a pretty awesome 26 years on this earth.
I’m not one to really celebrate birthdays (hence the fact that I’ve been working since 8am even though I make my own schedule) 🙈
Just doing a family dinner this evening and watching some movies. ✨
A perfect desert sunset as we witnessed our sweet friends tie the knot yesterday. ✨ Congrats @kimberlyyyann
! It was a magical weekend and epic celebration that we’ll never forget. 🤗🧡

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m actually enjoying the earlier sunsets. It was a chilly 55 degrees tonight. We bundled up, headed out around 4, and had the beach all to ourselves except for a nearby heron. We watched the sun dip below the horizon, the sky turn from orange to coral, and the crescent moon shine bright while the colors began to fade. Came home, had a hot dog (or three, but they were organic and served with a heap of kale so it doesn’t count), and now the feet are up, and the face mask is on. My kinda Saturday. #incaseanyonewaswondering #wanderwherethewifiisweak
Real talk - Even though I’m not around all that often, I am so freakin’ grateful for this company & for these badass babes. Incredibly honored to have been a part of this dream team for three holiday meetings now.. 🌟🎄✌🏼 //
Paradise is with you, babe 💗 Today marks ONE YEAR until I marry this amazing, selfless, handsome man!! It has been almost 9 months since we got engaged (UM WHAT?!) & it’s still a little surreal. There have been many ups + downs over the last year; both living healthy lives, Steves’ diagnosis/surgery, being way more mindful & thankful for each other, getting engaged & then starting a new chapter across the country. Wednesday was the one year anniversary of Steves’ total gastrectomy. It was the scariest moment in both of our lives. We had no idea what the outcome of this situation would be. But here we are a year later, still cancer free & thriving! I can’t express how proud I am of him for getting through such aggressive treatment, completely re-training his body to process & digest food. It has been a total learning curve and it still is. I’m not sure how I got so lucky to have him as my soon-to-be husband. I love you + cherish you so much! Happy one year until wedding!!! ✨🥂💍 #ringaroundtherosé #luckyones
S a l t w a t e r s u n s e t s 💕✨🌟
Fall refresh ✨ Giving our curtains a fresh steam to take out the wrinkles. Every time I wash them they get SO wrinkled and it drives me crazy, but the @RowentaUSA
X-CEL Steam+ makes it so easy to get them out. You can tilt it and use it horizontally too. Game changer! #ThisCallsforRowenta #Rowenta #ad #linkinbio
Holiday shopping is right around the corner - but for those thinking of going cross-border, do you know what you're allowed to bring back? Not to worry - we've laid everything out in a handy infographic on our blog! Link in bio 🛍️

Halloween may be over but fall is still in full effect. 🍁🍂✨
This human right here is the real MVP. Waking up early to hang with baby girl before he goes to work and staying up late to do the dishes most nights. In today’s society, I realize how fortunate I am to be married to a great man and how incredible it is that he is a loving, present, kind daddy to our daughter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We didn’t enter into this marriage knowing the keys to happiness but we have learned over time how important laughter, sacrifice and forgiveness are to a healthy day to day.
Not his birthday... just another day to be thankful. He truly is my better half ❤️
🌸🌼 your soul is attracted to people the same way the flowers are to the sun. surround yourself with the ones who only want to see you grow. 🌈🌞
Happy Friday! 🌴🧡Tropical vibes never stops for the fall season.
I wasn’t ready when I started my photography business. I just kind of started, and decided I’d figure it out as I went. I made SO many mistakes which maybe I’ll write a separate blog on... And despite how far I’ve come over the last two years, I know one day I’ll look back at late 2018 Lindsay and think, “dude, I had no clue what I was doing!” Life doesn’t come with instruction manuals. Finding what you love to do, and turning it into a small businesses is a crapshoot at first. BUT it is the only way you will learn the how tos... and oh how amazing (not easy) it will be if you commit to the journey. Everything is figureoutable, and if you wait until you’re ready, or to know what you’re doing, you’ll absolutely never start. #liveonpurpose
