1. This fall weather has been making me EXTREMELY HAPPY and I can see/feel the people in Chicago brightening up because of this weather! Besides it being a bit rainy today..
2. It’s pretty difficult to catch me by surprise. Like if you pop out from nowhere and say BOO I usually have no reaction and am unphased
3. I’ve been in a very throwback alternative rock phase these past few days
4. I don’t know what’s happening to me but I haven’t been wanting to drink coffee that much these past two weeks..
5. I am always impressed and fascinated by people who follow their passions in terms of career choice regardless of the risks like money and stability
5. Remember, it’s not always about working hard. Work smarter, not harder. Something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently #itmimimonday
"I'm a, I'm a a Diva
I'm a, I'm a a Diva" 🎶
Upon these lips were a host of secrets,
Secrets that she did not create,
Created by selfish people,
People who pretended to love her,
Her love was a tarnished mystery,
Mystery on top of misery,
Misery of a lifetime,
Lifetime of guilt,
Guilt that wasn’t hers to hold,
Holding onto the pain,
Pain and rain day by day,
Day time that rapidly grew into nightmares,
Nightmares that grew into silent screams,
Scream in her mind that grew into words on paper..
Goodnight stars, goodnight air.

This little blessing arrived Sunday! 💕 👶🏻 🎀
This morning was golden ✨🍁 I'll be honest with you, the last few weeks I have been stuck in a rut. I think partly its due to hormone imbalances that are truly out of my control. Sometimes it's really hard to know what is my personal responsibility and what is my body going haywire. Either way, the last few weeks were hard. It's always difficult in a flare up to search for a sense of normalcy, because how I'm feeling can change so much every day. So it's hard to find rhythm. And if you know me then you might know I'm basically Monica from friends, total type A perfectionist crazy lady at times. I wish I was pheobe but I'm totally Monica and I need to find a healthy way to run with that 😂 all that to say, I thrive on routine and sameness. Autoimmune disease really shatters all that, and it's hard for me. When I do start feeling better it's like I'm flailing around in the dark searching for light. I got out of bed finally, but I can't see and I'm not sure what to do next. Last week I was reminded by some inspiring IG friends that all I need to do is take the next step forward. Do the next right thing for that day, and just be faithful there. Sometimes that means we stay home and rest. Sometimes that means we go out. Sometimes that means Charlie watches more tv. Sometimes that means being intentional and really focusing all of me on him. It changes daily. It's not concrete. It'd be great if I could day every day I will get up at this time and read the Bible and make coffee for Zack because that's being "faithful" but the reality for me is that if I'm not feeling well being faithful might mean sleeping in, letting Zack do more, and turning on our favorite music in the morning because that's how I'll best function for the day and be able to have the mental and physical energy to love my family. It's hard for me to not fit a mold, especially when that's what's preached to us so much. But I know this is better. I'm still learning to find freedom and not get caught up in what everyone else is doing or saying, or even saying to me. But surrendering to the process and approaching each day with the mindset of, I will do the next right thing whatever that means for today..
Here's hoping you killed your Monday! And that your kitchen is as gorgeous as this one ❤📸 @the_indigo_house

MATCHA MORNINGS 🍵
As you know since the beginning of this year I pretty much replaced coffee with matcha-/beetroot-/curcuma-lattes and chai tea. But since it’s PSL time again I loosened up a bit and treated myself to one now and then ☺️ (it’s all about balance🎃)

Coffee and people watching in Paris.
This season has been big and beautiful and overwhelming to say the very least. Real talk: every wedding seems to bring so many happy tears and joy, and still so much anxiety and comparison and pressure to be "perfect". Paired with a herniated disk, it's been an uphill battle mentally and physically unlike any season before. This wedding right here humbled me completely, and it reminded me of the immense privilege that comes with being trusted to document the biggest day for my sweet couples. The bride found out on the morning of her wedding that her brother, a selfless firefighter and veteran, had been called to duty for hurricane relief and would be unable to attend. While he wasn't there physically, he was able to watch much of the wedding day via FaceTime, and it was such an honor to be able to document his sweet sister's wedding for him to relive with her. There's no way for me to possibly describe how thankful I am to be able to serve this incredible family on the most beautiful day. Thank you, thank you, thank you Stephanie + Mike for having me!
Apple picking and hard cider tasting in Oakglen this past weekend!! 🍎🍎🍎 (Needless to say, the New England girl in me was craving partaking in fall activities..)
