Chu Chu 🚂 a cutie patutti coming through ☀️
I would be be where I am today without my wonderful friends. I'm so thankful to have people in my corner who support me and laugh at my silly jokes ☺️ And I'm even more thankful they came to celebrate my birthday with me! #24 #birthdaybehavior
I love these boys of mine💕
So who’s gonna let me take like 5 million pictures of them on these stairs in our house?
In case you’re missing the perfect images for that summer inspiration in your feed or blog go grab some fresh fun poolside pics from the stock shop! Link in bio 💦💦💦
The evening ☀️ makes me 😊. Today, I’m cooped up inside finishing one final assignment for one class, and then 2/3 classes will be complete for the summer🙌🏽. And I can tell you I’ve almost clicked the class withdrawal button 17x for all three of them 😭😂. LOL almost there ......grace upon grace 🖤👩🏻🎓☕️#gradschool

Loving this summer light in Vancouver ☀️
Explored the biggest lavender farm that Ontario has to offer with the old roomies 💕🐝
to that time we floated and splashed and fell in love with #maui
I am such a water person. You know the feeling you get when you just love something so much, your toes start to tingle a bit in anticipation?
That's me and the sea. Or any pool or bath tub or body of water I can completely submerge within and feel the movement of the water grasp my skin and tickle my hair. .
Some days, it feels like you're going in circles; am I making progress? Am I going backwards? Am I even doing this right? I feel like when I was first photographing underwater, the newness factor was all of that and then some. .
But what's funny is, just like in photography, life has a way of letting you choose which perspective you want to take. What angle you want to get down and dirty with. What lens you want to see life through. And I fell in love with the process of being present. Feeling the water surge, get cold or warm, feeling my heartbeat and hearing it loud and clear, pounding away as I bubbles in awe of all we have the ability to do, if we let ourselves bask in it. Just for a second. And then, when your ready, 2 seconds. Maybe 3 or 4 or 5. .
In a way, it's like yoga or meditating, but underwater. Where there's nowhere to go but everywhere to be and yet everywhere to be, and nowhere to go but your mind. The ultimate paradox! #life
I'm grateful to be in a tub today, getting some energy from one of my favorite spaces. But I'm my mind, I'm floating along the sand in Maui. Feeling the health wash over me and my soul feel at home.
What are you doing for you today, friend? What puts you in your happy space? .
You're wonderful. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! .
Can you do me a huge favor? 🙃
Will you take a few minutes to just be with you, appreciate you and wherever you may be in life? I know it, sometimes it's hard to just be ok with what's going on. But isn't it interesting how we can sometimes pause to take a few seconds to remember we are strong? We are beautiful? We are enough? We are doing great things? .

to being 16 again! Oh how times have changed! ✨
I got my hair ‘styled’ for the first time ever because I didn’t want to go into sixth form with hair that was the same length all over. I wanted layers so I could look cool and I wanted a more ‘grown up’ style. ✨
And I was on the verge of a whole new journey before me, where I would fall completely and utterly in love with graphic design without even realising it! I wanted to be an artist, but that soon changed as soon as I started studying graphics! 😍
Admittedly, I STILL am in love with graphic design! I live and breathe it every single day and can’t imagine myself doing anything else. 🌿
Did you know what you wanted to do when you were 16?
I waited all DAY for my cup of happy!
a year ago, I didn't know either of these strong, beautiful, generous, hilarious, loving ladies. now they're my rock. my wine wednesday women, spontaneous patio hopping partners, and fellow foodies. most importantly, they're my soul sisters. they're everything I didn't know I was missing. I wish we had crossed paths sooner, but I'm grateful for each moment we've spent together since. #OG3
Happy thirsty Thursday! One day closer to the weekend and it’s my bridal shower weekend sooo M O O D. I’m with my 2018 brides this year and planning for my special day as well! 🥂💍🎉💕

Currently searching for places to visit when we are on our honeymoon! This place looks 😍😍😍😍
It's rainy and depressing outside. Today's a struggle for me and I think it's a combination of weather and the feeling that I have so much to do and not enough downtime. Also, I made a mistake today of reaching out to someone from my past, who has some serious demons and seeing this person's current life choices was disheartening and left me in kind of a funk. There's usually a reason people are in your past, but still some things are difficult to accept. After that conversation, I'm definitely motivated to continue to surround myself with people who lift each other up and make each other happy and feel good, people who are positive influences and have healthy life goals and make positive choices. On one hand I appreciate honesty so much, but on the other hand sometimes the straight up truth is difficult to accept, and can feel like a slap on the face. But, it's I know I'm worth more than continuing to invest in people who have a way of making you feel like you're less than anything. Anyways here's a #tbt
to last year on a gorgeous day when I had a friend who had a paddleboard. I need more friends with paddleboards. #loveyourselfmore
Could really go for one of these coffee milkshakes right about now 😋
And now you got me dancing through the town.
* sharing my blog post from today *
BEING INTENSELY INTENTIONAL
I'll be the first one to say it.. I don't always think before I speak, buy something (sorry Tyler), post or even just how I spend my day in general. I get caught up in the go-go-go that I don't take time actually think about what I am doing.
Conclusion? It's driving me bonkers. (yep, I said bonkers.. deal wit it)
I decided I needed a revamp of my life. When I say life I mean how I saw life. Are you picking up what I'm putting down? I just want everything I do be something I am insanely stoked about and proud of. Everything I buy I want it to really mean something. Every word I say needs to be something I feel honored to say.
I took a break from the whole social media shebang.
Okay let me preface by saying I didn't take an actual "No viewing any social media" break but, a "Im not posting, worry about posting, sharing bits of my life.. nothing" break.
It was hard. It was a weird transition for me. I felt like I didn't even touch my camera button on my phone. I thought to myself, "Why take that photo, it's not like Im gonna post it?" SO dumb. I took like 0 (yep you read that right) photos the entire break.
I was off from posting for 21 days. Not gonna lie, I wanted to post. I missed it. I think thats actually a good thing! That means this is something I actually care about. I didn't post or make a peep on the IG for three whole weeks.
Coming back I have this strong desire to share intentionally. To not just click publish because I needed to post today to stick to my editorial calendar but rather post because I wanted someone out there to hear me. I think it's easy to take you (as a reader) your time for granted. I think "they will for sure read this entire post" way too often. Why do I feel like I am more important than her child that needs her? Why do I feel like she should spend more time reading about my life than serving those around her? I need to be humble. I realize now that your time is of great worth. For you to like a post, comment or even send a DM.. that takes time! Time out of your precious life!
Not only do I want to be intentional in my social sharing but in
• BRINGING THE CHILL BACK • | rejuvenation feels like a quiet book, unscheduled time, rolling waves, and a slight breeze that makes you want to take longer breaths. headed back to my New Yorkers with some vigor - but also a fuller cup thanks to a little time like this.
what environments or practices help you rejuvenate?
I feel like this is one of those weeks where I'm just pretending to be an adult. Like when people watch us out, they think "how cute, she's pretending she can function like a grown up!" 😭 But, it's our Friday, and tomorrow is our anniversary, so we just might make it! 🤞🙌 I finally found althletic shirts that actually fit over a third trimester bump! I'm self conscious enough at zumba (no coordination here 🙋♀️) I don't need my belly popping out too when I move. 😬 Sharing these tops and a comfy athleisure shoe find on my stories today! What's your go-to shoe for fall?
Go bold or go home!👄✌🏻
