This is still my favorite photo of us. 6 years ago on a VERY cold Friday evening, I married this man with all of our favorite people by our side! 6 years, 2 kids and now 2 houses! I could not have asked for a better anniversary gift than to find our forever home with my forever love!! 💗 Thank you Jimmy for always supporting my crazy dreams, being an amazing father to our girls, and a great husband!! Your hard work and dedication to our family do not go unnoticed. AND... Huge bonus points that you are always willing to help with my home renovation ideas too! 😘 📷: @jessicastricklandphotography #taranicoleweddings #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #tilinsiders #theinstagramlab #celebratewhatmatters #familytime #happyanniversary #6years

SPIRIT DAY // Today we stand with millions against bullying. - Spirit Day, created by GLAAD, encourages wearing purple to show the LGBTQ community—our family, friends, and neighbors, they are loved. - As we embrace this message, we understand that today’s teens, especially, fall victim of bullying. We want to start the conversation on how to love, strengthen and empower today’s youth and know what to say to someone who is bullied. We encourage you to wear your purple and read “How to Empower Teens Who Are Being Bullied” on consciousmagazine.co. Our youth's future matter. #consciousculture

A couple of days ago, I snatched a PB&J off Mom’s plate, and last week I ate Dad’s last piece of Pita 😏 Stealing human food means big trouble, but desperate times call for desperate measures. #alwayshungry #feedme
You just can’t beat the person who never gives up. ;) #consciousdaily
LIFE // Change your thinking, and you’ll change your world...one thought at a time. - The way we think is stronger than we realize. It holds power to create or destroy. And, many times, we become acceptors of negative thinking, which leads to mental turmoil and even actual, physical ramifications. So, how do we stop this? - The article "Change Your Thinking – Change Your Life" goes into depth on this topic than we can capture here. We encourage you to keep reading for a new or a fresh perspective.

We aren't going to wait for good news. We are going to go out and create it. - Issue 04, our Powerful Voices edition, was created to inspire others to carry out their voices with us, and as one unit, to create swift change. If you want a better world, then BELIEVE your voice has the power to reach the four corners of the earth. - Through these pages, we hope our readers would be encouraged, motivated and inspired to give a second thought to not only what you read, but what you say and certainly, how you say it. Contrary to the children’s fable that words may never hurt us, words are the sword and the shield, the uplifter, truth-giver, and freedom fighter. Sometimes our power lies in not how loud we say something, but rather the intention behind it. - Pick up your copy of Issue 04: Powerful Voices edition in print or digital from the Conscious Shop.

LEADERSHIP // There’s nothing better than having a group of people who do their job with love, dedication, and responsibility. But, you can’t expect this kind of a team to be born out of nowhere, you need to build that team. - The best way to inspire people to give it their best and become a true member of the team is to motivate and inspire them. Make sure to choose goals that bring out the best out of every one of your team members. Give them space to grow, develop, learn, contribute and be important. Give them their spot and they’ll respect it. Give them something to fight for.

temps dropping to the 60s this week & I’m so happy I could cry 🙌🏼😭
If you’re new to the #boosbalancechallenge , start with something small! My parents started by teaching me “stay” when I was just a young pup. Once I mastered that, they started putting a treat on the tip of my nose as a more advanced form of stay. If you *stick* with it, you can balance anything 💪🏻
“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here. • #AliceInWonderland • • • • • #visualgang #seekinspirecreate #socality #createcommune #minimalist #thecreatedcommunity #peoplescreatives #butfirstcoffee #thediscoverer #hardwork #makeitblissful #becomeyourcreative #creativepreneur #thecoolmagazine #hypekillsmag #ohwowyes #gritandvirtue #makersgonnamake #oneofthebunch #makeitcount #slowlived #communicationskills #theblogissue #brandmarketing #morningslikethese

We’ll have the curry, fried rice + ginger special please. 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️ Sometimes the BEST food has been right under your nose the whole time. Ryan and I recently found Top Spice, a Thai + Malaysian restaurant we pass every time we went to the gym, and here we are a year later. Man, have we been missing out. I got extremely sick the first time I tried Thai, so there were a few years there where I avoided it, but now I’m back 💪🏻 Curious though ... do you love Thai or hate it?
Addressing feelings of negativity with honesty, love, and a bit of grit, goes along way. - Vid: @chorizo0408 Location: @neoufitness
Get you a best friend who will drop everything and drive 430 miles to an Ed Sheeran concert with only six hours notice 😆Shouts to @dylanalidor for the awesome seats and @teddysphotos for the incredible show ➗💙

Starting point.
i made these brown butter cookies with maple glaze last week and our house still smells like pancakes... 🥞 Z loves Fall because then I actually feel like cooking 😛

Double the pup. Double the love. - Cutest NYC run-in ever! The elevator door opened and these two cuties walked out. Hey...if any part of you ever wanted to adopt a pup...do it this weekend!! ;) Or donate to a cause like the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt Organization (support.bestfriends.org) - Photo: @rhipena
okay so I only bought nine of these little cuties, don’t judge me 🎃
Starting to pull together some stock for @refreshmarket (Nov 16/17) - I’m a little behind as I only just recently came into this gig full time and I’m trying to simultaneously stock stores for Christmas. And @katpinoceramics graciously reminded me I still don’t have a booth designed or made. Find these tall tumblers in my future booth hopefully sitting among other objects . . . . #ceramic #ceramics #pottery #glazing #thesearch #homeware #functionware #artstudio #design #art #artoftheday #create #createdaily #studiospace #studioscene #colorventures #handmade #thecreatedcommunity #create #createcommune #refreshmarket #christmasshopping #shopsmall #shophandmade
Hold tightly to what is good. — Swipe 👉 for all the Friday goodness.
I am obsessed with this vintage-style Halloween banner we got at @loweshomeimprovement ! it reminds me of the one my mom used to hang up when we were kids 🖤
I kept having to tell these two to stop looking like a magazine ad. This one keeps making me think of coke for some reason (probs all the happiness). I am blessed to have such beautiful friends like you @an_tonyanem 🙌🏻
POWERFUL VOICES // Featuring Nora Gherbi. Founder of WHo CAREs Chronicles and Producer of the newly released film, Indigo. - We captured Nora's story in our Powerful Voices edition (Issue 04). Having lived in four different countries and five different cities, Nora gained many close friends around the world and a vibrant outlook on culture and life experiences. Her experiences led her to start the conversation on why every company needs a Chief Care Officer while advocating empathy in the corporate world. You can read her full story in Issue 04 (www.consciousshop.co). - More recently, and during UN Week, she debuted the inspiring film, Indigo at the Paris Change Now Summit featuring the story of a 7-year old girl who lives in a Syrian refugee camp while aiming to bring to light the misunderstood facts. The name Indigo is a metaphor to our last chance to give the refugee crisis the attention it deserves and the actions it requires. #consciousculture - Discover and learn more today!

I just sat for far too long trying to decided the story I wanted to tell with this photo. Ultimately I was reminded that this photo was taken at about 10am on a Chicago sidewalk and how I couldn't stop giggling because you were ordering wine with breakfast. I just want to remember those giggles and you laughing right back not being bothered what anyone thought. #vacationmodeforever
Throughout the month of September, I tell myself to go ahead and get in the Fall spirit, or I’ll miss the season entirely. Well another October has hit yet again and I’m already feeling panicked that I won’t be able to do all of the seasonal things I love like heading to a pumpkin patch and going apple picking. 😬😬😬 My advice to you, start celebrating your season as soon and as long as you want. 🎃
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE // Sometimes the path to addiction opens because of our own lack of training in emotional intelligence. We get schooled in intellectual intelligence all day long as we grow up and get career training. But little focus is placed on our ability to be aware of and process emotions in constructive ways. - Emotions don’t deserve to be boxed up and denied a part of your life. Given the right care, they help us survive and thrive. They can help move you to constructive action, feel part of a community or connect with family. Continue the conversation.

GLOBAL GOALS // Why re-imagining the workforce can help build a robust future. Taking a look at goal No. 8 from the pages of Conscious Magazine Issue 05. - If we are to achieve sustainable economic growth for all, we must work together, lean into our respective strengths, share in the bounty, and promote a workforce that is fair to all. By aligning purpose with passion, cultivating the right work culture and preparing our youth with relevant and applicable skills for the future, we can more actively engage our workforce. The UN wants to do its part to make this possible. Global Goal 08, Decent Work and Economic Growth, “promotes sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.” - Continue reading.

Conscious Magazine x Global Goals. - This week marks the annual Global Goals Week happening in NYC, one of the most incredible gatherings bringing leaders together to drive the 2030 mission forward. I'm still inspired by the 20+ writers and artists who collaborated to help us create the 5th edition of Conscious Magazine (@cmagazine ) dedicated to the Global Goals conversation. - This was one of the more challenging editions we produced, but one of the more exciting too. It was an honor working with organizations like @feed , @illgofirst , @water , @wunderkidart , @one and many more. - Discover it: www.consciousmagazine.co :)
GLOBAL GOALS // Today we’re taking a deeper look at global goal No. 6, to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. - From the pages of Conscious Magazine Issue 05. Today, 4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services while 3 in 10 people lack access to safely managed drinking water. - “Tirotama and her husband, Shushil, live in the Cuttack district of Odisha, where they live in a house they worked hard to build themselves. Complete with a thatched roof and mud floor, it took the couple about five years to construct, affording building materials as they earned money working or through approved loans. Like most of their neighbors, Tirotama and Shushil moved into the house with no running water or toilet. Unfortunately, these are standard conditions for millions of people around the world.” - In September 2015, the 193 Member States of the United Nations committed to 17 Global Goals with Goal 06 ensuring an end to the global water and sanitation crisis for all people everywhere. With an expansive list of 17 goals, we must not lose focus on individuals, like Tirotama and Shushil, who are the reason that achieving them is so important. -  Continue reading.
