My people. Ugh!! They’re the coolest!! Our oldest will be double digits in 1 month and the following month my littlest will be 4 – the baby in him is dwindling & with that comes my ugly cry & an hour of watching baby videos every night. Time is the weirdest thing! Only 3 years ago we were living in California & taking care of a newborn, I had no idea I’d start my own business or be a homeowner! I remember throwing my hands up & telling Jesus if He had plans to change things up that I was up for whatever – the very next day (literally) the ball started rolling & a plan was being made for our move to Michigan! Sometimes He’s just waiting for us to realize we don’t run the show, if we’ll let Him open our eyes and hearts then He can show us the surprising and awesome things He has planned for us! 📷 @kaleighdsimmonsphoto ✨

Neck tie denim jacket!? Don’t mind if I do! I found this gem at Target for $11!! Yeah, ya hearrrrrd! Shopping tip: it’s always better to buy something you love that’s a tad outside of your comfort zone then wait and regret not at least trying it! Most of the time you’ll be SO glad you pulled the trigger on that decision and if not, return it! One of my shopping mantras is, if it makes me excited and a little nervous then it’s just enough out side of my comfort zone to give it a go! Happy Friday! Ps. That golden hour glow is amazeballs. 💥 📷 by @kaleighdsimmonsphoto 🖤✨

This little light of mine, I’m gunna let it shine without fear or intimidation or insecurity or doubt! Without shame or comparison, without envy or uncertainty.
Each of us have a place in this world, in our cities, in our career path & in our communities! Each of us have a place to thrive doing something we believe in & it’s so necessary for us to do it partnered with a tribe of supporters – friends, family, mentors -supporting us & standing beside us reminding us that we are capable and well able!
It’s too easy to get swallowed up in the comparison game and second guess even our greatest strengths! Let your little light shine! Don’t doubt who you are or what you were created to chase after with everything you’ve got – find those who believe in you and choose to breath life into each other! I’ve heard it said that people get hurt in relationships and people get healed in them, it’s so true – don’t let an Instagram relationship define who you are, instead partner with people who see YOU, who know you and who believe in you! •• This is a little practice flat lay in my bedroom and those tiny feet reminded me of who I am – I am a creative but I am also a mama and the two of those things are not separate in my world! Those feet belong to a boy who watch me create & also sees me as supermom! He reminds me that I’m well able and my dreams of being a great mama & a great stylist are attainable & coming true in my life!

Dancing into our weekend and feeling so very happy about it!! But seriously, if you’re grumpy go crank the music and dance your buns off – works for me on an almost daily basis! Ya know what else works on an almost daily basis?? Denim jackets! Game changer. They come in every fit, shade & style you can imagine! What’s your jam?? Distressed? Oversized? Clean lines? Light wash? GF I encourage you to find the perfect denim jacket and don’t be afraid to wear holes in the elbows – love it well and wear it often! And don’t forget to dance in it!! Style tip: don’t be afraid of a denim jacket, search for the one that offers you all things you hope for and go for it! Wear it with dresses, T-shirt’s, denim on denim, over a hoodie… I’m convinced there’s no wrong way! Happy Friday! ✨🌵

Thank you Kaleigh!!!! ❤️

I’ve been completely MIA, I know. I have been in my own little world of asking questions, the hard kind. The ones that require major soul searching & arms stretched wide with willingness. It’s a good thing that we can hope in Him & His timing even when He feels quiet! Or in my case it’s feeling hopeful that the stirring I’m feeling is something getting ready to blossom in my life & I want to be in the right position – emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually – so that I can be most prepared for what He has in store.
It can be scary to ask the hard questions because part of asking them is admitting we don’t have all of the answers – annnnd booooy do I like to have it all figured out! But for now I’m meditating on the present things in my life! The children I’m watching grow by the minute, the business I’m investing my heart into, the marriage that’s full of belonging – that’s enough for me. But I love the stirring and draw for more, the things He has in store for our family and my life that I have yet to see!
