I love yellow shoes, like all of a sudden they’re on the top of my list! Practical? Nope. But you better believe I would wear them with errrrrythang! This is fun little combo for a babe client of mine, maybe it’s a little outside of her comfort zone… but was she ready & excited to give it a go?! YEA buddy! I never push my clients too far outside of their comfort zone but I most definitely give some nudging. Usually they don’t see what I do, the hues of color that compliment each other or the patterns that actually work and why. And sometimes my clients don’t realize a that life long frustration is a matter of simply buying the wrong size or not understand the shape of their body and how to dress it. I feel really stinking grateful to get to do what I love!

Yesterday was a much needed day of adventure and all things lovely! The @clothandcabin Spring lineup is SO good, you guys! I can’t wait for it to go live so you can buy all the pretty things for yourselves! And let’s just throw down a solid shout out to @eandlsalongr because Erin & @samklugartistry are some incredible humans! They were so down to earth, which is way the heck up there on my list of hopes when meeting new people. I felt beautiful, valued and really thankful to have met 2 more female powerhouses in the Grand Rapids community. The photo shoot with Cloth&Cabin was hilarious, inspiring, laid back and overflowing with mimosas – seriously my glass was never left half empty. Can’t wait to see the magic from so many killer creatives working together & so grateful I got to be a part of it!
Photo props to Meredith from @clothandcabin 💥

She is a fiery and feisty little thing who chose to press into her passion without fear or doubt of the outcome. She reaches for the stars and shares their sparkle with the world. She allows the pain from her past to help her grow instead of letting it define her. She twirls with her arms in surrender when her tears tell her to hide. She is smart, brave and accepting of all people. Shes surrounded by people who inspire her & huddles around them when they need her. She’s a free spirit, an adventurer. She’s a visionary, a creator, a beautiful mind. She isn’t one person – she’s a collection of women who, when knit together, can change the world radiantly!

I couldn’t be more grateful to have a daughter with a heart a stunning as Delaney’s. She’s a little wonder, my friends. ✨

The amount of snow that has fallen in the last 12 hours in GR is ummm, no bueno. Beautiful? Absolutely! Cozy? I mean it’s like magic when you’re inside looking out! But I think half of this would have been just as lovely, sky… Thanks a lot. I think it’s officially time to say it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with all of this sparkling, white ‘tow’ – as my 3 year old would say. Maybe we should start wearing our ‘glubs’, yeah probably a good idea.

I could hear music on the other side of this pale yellow door and although that may not sound scary to you, I was terribly nervous they would see me on their doorstep and come guns blazing out to get me! But let’s be real, with a soft yellow door and such cheerful potted flowers they probably would have offered me cookies.
Cheers to you sweet yellow door and mystery friends inside for creating such a welcoming and happy little space that made me feel both thrill and appreciation!
I hope and wonder if the owners of this lovely space feel the same emotions I did about what they created. I sure hope so! I’m (obviously) one of those people that thinks pretty deeply, I tend to hope that any ordinary day holds the possibility of growth or greatness & sometimes even hunt for it. Typically it’s the unexpected, subtle things that captivate me the most; like this small side entrance hiding alongside of the huge, stunning home it belongs to.
Maybe it’s the part of me that is rooting for the underdog, or maybe the part that is captivated by the little details, or maybe the space of my heart that believes in the power of small victories in achieving the big vision. Whichever it is, this little door seemed to catch my attention and allow my heart to wander with curiosity.
Not all of my photos have a story or enlightening moment behind them, but I’m proud of them all. Each one is a little step forward and each one gives me the opportunity to share a small piece of my heart with you! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

“Before I created you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I set you apart…” Jeremiah 1:5

Today I’ve been reminded of something so intimate – that in the moments I don’t know where I’m going or what I’m doing, He does. He made me for a purpose & before I was even born He was laying my life out to become something beautiful. That’s a pretty crazy thought!

Summer boots are the bomb.com! Yes, I said that. These babes make the cut almost every day! You don’t want to wear tan, white or black everyday?! Good, you shouldn’t. Throw in some blush, gold or both and get your strut on girl!
