petrichor (n.): the smell of earth after rain.
yesterday was my 3 year anniversary with seattle and boy, has this city changed me.
i thought i knew myself then, but little did i know i had so much more ME to discover 🤗
this city has entirely shaped me into the confident, badass woman i am today (she said so humbly) and i wouldn’t change a single thing about my time here.
i’ve met some of the greatest friends i’ll ever have, tackled mountains and discovered the joy of solo hiking, grown and developed as a personal trainer and human, and survived 3 of the grayest, rainiest winters of my life (so far).
seattle, you are one of the greatest loves of my life. here’s to knowing you will forever be a part of me 💕 and here’s to NOT knowing when and where life will lead me next 🥂
like how rain is to flowers, we need that negative to blossom into the postive and beautiful beings that we are 😋 not sure about you, but whenever i'm feeling stuck, down, or uninspired, i ride it out, let that sh*t be, but i don't necessarily dwell on it. why? because i know 100% of the time that everything will be fine in the end 🤷🏻♀️ i'm curious to know, how do you intepret @thriveartstudio
It’s been awhile since we’ve been out at the markets, but the next two weekends we’ll be out at some end of summer events and you better believe we’ll be bringing these S’mores Bars with us! .
This Saturday we’ll be out at Celebrate Shoreline at Cromwell Park from noon to 9:00. Next Saturday, August 25th we’ll be at Kenmore’s Summer Party.
Hope to see you out there!
When you realize you don’t have to share!!
We helped Hazel’s mama (@ilovecrafted
) celebrate her big day last weekend with creating this mini watercolor cake. Swipe over to see the cutest dessert spread she created! 💕🧜♀️💜
Over the years, Whitney has become a dear friend of mine. She’s an amazing boss lady, working mom and someone I can always go to for all my crazy questions 😆 Go check out her page full of delicious desserts!
🙌🏼Let’s Revisit #GOALS

in Cannon Beach was the perfect place for a powwow. Chicken and waffles, Thai iced tea and a parfait to start our day!
Life is good.
I look at this photo and I see a million imperfections. Things I would cover up. Things I would change. Things that aren’t Instagram-worthy.
My crooked smile. My healing skin. My laugh lines.
But I look so happy — because I AM so happy. I’m so grateful and in awe of the world around me. Life is lovely and beautiful and imperfect. And that’s worth absolutely everything.
Shhhhh. Baby’s sleeping. With some vintage teddies that were family members that are no longer living. 😭😍 I think this is the crib art- the one that his family is going to print big over his crib once his nursery is finished at his new house. Goodnight, little one. ❤️
One of my favorite #branding
projects to date with the hairgician @alayciahairdesign

Happy Friday and #nationalsmoresday

coffee shops in North Seattle. Our take on this classic summer treat. Almond meal shortbread crust, layered with Nutella and toasted marshmallows. You’ll just have to try one for yourself. 😉🏕
I should be sleeping but instead I’m posting a photo from a few months back with the amazing @bergswife
🧡 craving another shoot with this babe, before she has HER babe 😍

Where you’ll usually find me...
Today I was talking with @alexisdamen
about the balance between support people and organizations we believe in AND needing to get paid.
It’s hard to consider that you may need to turn down a gig you’re excited about, a business you believe in — because they don’t have the budget to pay you. But here’s the deal: you’re worth pay. Your time, energy, and talent NEED to be compensation (because, ya know, you need to eat!) And if you cannot negotiate pay in real dollars, make sure that payment is of real value — experience, connections, or perks that will further your career or biz.
Never let your drive go uncompensated.
That simple yet supple allure of small illustrations and small details! 👌🏼👌🏼
I know we are posting a lot of wedding cakes right now, but we sure do love a sweet kids cake! When Sloan’s mama told us she was going with a woodlands flower garden theme, we were all ears! Swipe over to see the details. 🌸🐿💕🦌
This little guy is bringing double chins back ❤️❤️ Seriously why can’t mine look this cute? 😂
Also- dare you not to yawn. This precisely represents how I’m feeling today. I can’t wait for nap time!!!
Poppies make me happy!! I just finished carving two matching poppy tumblers. 🌺
