This last weekend Brynn and I hopped on a flight to Seattle. I was picked up by @hazelandholly
and we drove to the Oregon coast. I met some of the most amazing Instagram friends who have all connected through Young Living. We have built businesses, friendships and connected over coffees, wine and an app called voxer 🤣 These women are inspiring. They are mothers, creatives, hard workers and some of the kindest women I know. Thank you all for a beautiful weekend- I’m so thankful to have gotten real hugs in real life. 🤗 Can’t wait to do it all again next year!
To my team who wasn’t able to come, I can’t wait until next years meet up!
Our wedding is 6 months to the day... from yesterday. And I didn’t even realize it. 🤷🏼♂️ But @mattsally6783
did. It’s one of the many, many things I love about him: he remembers stuff. Important stuff, stupid stuff, sports trivia stuff, passwords stuff, where to find stuff — and plenty of other stuff. He just remembers. 😍 I’m so lucky. ❤️ (Also: less than 6 months till our wedding?! Ahhh!!!)
So how do you really feel about Monday’s?
I can’t believe this spunky little girl turned one! 🎂
I can’t imagine where I’d be without this man. And I can’t quite believe I’m actually saying something so cliche but it means something so different than what I imagined it would. I’m not nothing without him, but my life simply wouldn’t be what it is today without him. #mancrusheveryday #incredulousappreciationpost
My gorgeous sunny October Sunday went something like this...
- Morning yoga class
- Massage at the gym spa
- An afternoon exploring a 600 year old castle with my boys.
- An impromptu fish & chips dinner in Bridge of Allan on the way home.
- Sunday night chats with my man after putting two exhausted kids to bed.
We were all in a bit of a mood on Saturday so to follow with a blissful day like this was just 👌🏼💕✨
Do not rush through life so fast that you forget to sit still and just be. Our kids will be better for it and so will we. ❤️ Learning to be content in the small moments of the day and giving space to let the small moments turn into big moments of the heart. #preachingtomyself
When it’s cold out and you don’t wanna get out of bed 😍
This is my kind of weather y’all!!! And I’m pretty sure everyone else’s. I do love summer but Texas heat is on a whole different level 🔥 excited for the gloomy chilly days ahead. Any one else?! ____

Next up: giant leaf pile.
If Monday Blues looks like this, we are not complaining
Thank you @samuelschew
for this lovely underwater shot. True beauty lies beneath the surface of the sea. 🌊
I very often get an overwhelming sense that I am someone else, a feeling that part of me exists as another human being, as many human beings. I’m unsure if that’s just total arrogance (probably!) and it totally stems from selfishness. I recognise in others a feeling I’ve had or am going to have. I nest in other peoples worry lines and side glances like I’m at home. I don’t mean in people I know, mostly in strangers in crowds. My camera moves to that person as if to capture our connection. They our mostly unaware. As I say, it’s a selfish connection, but it’s all consuming at times.
Good morning beautiful world! Happy Monday. A brand new week ahead, another busy one I should say... I am getting ready to go to work. Lara has breakfast club and Luna will go to Nursery. I literally cannot wait to go on maternity leave 😀😂 still a while for it thou...
I think this pregnancy is the hardest so far. I just feel exhausted all the time and have growth pains a lot 🙄 which makes me so drained 😪
Anyway hope you all have a great start of the week 🧡
How big, how blue, how beautiful

Party Saturday. Recuperate Sunday ☺️ Had so much fun celebrating Livy and Jake 💛
😊🎂🎁🎉🎈If you watch my stories then you know it's been all about me turning 30 lately. Since Thursday I've been spoiled non stop. It reminded me of how many people I have in my life that care so much. Thank you to everyone that helped make it so special.°
🎈So in my short 30 years of life i feel like I've learned a few things. First off that kindness and love is always better. I've learned to dream bigger and love deeper. To hold those that want you in their life close and never let them go cause good friends are one of life's precious gifts and I've learned to hold family even closer. Love every moment because you will not get that moment back. Be present, be honest and forgive much. °
❤️My 20's were awesome but I'm pretty excited about my 30's!!

“Do not ever think that you are too small to make a difference in the world. You may not be able to change the entire world but you are able to change the world you see and the world of the people around you. Let your being resonate as a positive influence to those that make up your world.”

Underestimating the impact you can have based on your perceived “size” in comparison to something else is the biggest mistake you can make. Everyone holds the power to make change in this world.
What will you use yours for?

Cardboard for days!!! .
For the first time in 12 years of being married to my hunk, we have never had a nice bedroom. It’s been the junk room, I’ve never even hung a thing on the walls. Every dresser we’ve used in there has always been the leftover dressers with broken drawers that you have to slam with all your might to close or just leave open so everyone can see your undies. Our bed has always been on the floor and for the last year, our floor has been partially painted plywood with holes to see down to the basement. We aren’t big spenders, 95% of everything we own is secondhand or built by hand out of recycled garbage so it was kind of a huge deal to renovate our room with something other than dumpster finds. (Don’t get me wrong, I love my dumpster finds!!!) 🙈 Swipe to see the transformation! Oh, and that closet that we closed in, it will eventually become part of our bathroom someday. 😊 Still waiting on my husband to build the bed frame I have planned out in my head but man, I am loving this room!!!
Yesterday’s fall wedding was BEAUTIFUL! I’ve been looking forward to Matt and Brittany’s big day for a while and their country wedding didn’t disappoint!
Wasn’t going to post yet but I can’t help it. She’s such a cute little Minnie Mouse! ❤️
One of my favorite spots in all of Tulsa.
Happy SUNDAY ☀️ It’s hard to believe that it was only a week ago that I stood in the warmth of the golden sunshine with this beautiful Family when today we are having our first snow storm!☃️
Can’t believe he’s 3 weeks old already
We’re celebrating BIG NEWS today! (No I’m not pregnant again 😂) Today was @jarrydforeman
’s first day as the worship leader of the @north_ascc
We’re still so humbled and blown away by all the Lord has done since we first came to @theaustinstone
and Jarryd started the residency program 3+ years ago. To see how so many things have come full circle and all the grace and joy the Lord has blessed our family with is overwhelming to say the least.
Jarryd I’m so proud of your hard work and humility, but most of all for your desire to put Jesus first and to follow Him at any cost.
Thank you to North campus for all the love and support today! We’re so excited to officially call you our home campus! #austinstoneworship #selftimerforthewin #getin52
Absolutely love photographing the Fall season. 😍
We can reduce our potential to love to almost nothing but we can never annul it. Forgiveness is the light that penetrates the darkened mind; it is the necessary condition to understand Love and find the eternal peace from living in God. —
Is Love and the peace of God not an exchange desired, instead of an illusionary world and identity? The world would surely make it if it thought it possible...It is then God’s teachers who must teach that it can.
