What all bathroom selfies should look like. Or at least these are the kind I’m most comfortable taking. 👯‍♀️
Wishing for a girls weekend and a big city to play (and of course shop) in! Sigggh. For now I’ll take my quiet morning and a leisurely trip to Target with my littlest to buy things we don’t need. Retail therapy might not be wise but shoot son, it works like a charm! ps. I love you @kelseyhettinga ❤️

I’m so grateful for friends, holidays & my sweet little family! But also the sun & infrared lights. Oh and for a cozy bed & a week having my hubby home for family adventuring. Also for day after Christmas sales 🤩

I was swooning over this sweet little corner at last nights dinner party! @cvbecker hosted & spoiled us with some of the tastiest fall foods & sincere conversation. I was reminded how necessary it is to be present & aware, to slow down & invest in the special moments but also the mundane. The warm & delicious food, the soft lighting, the laughing between two friends in a separate conversation, the earthy smell of the hand soap, the sacred & vulnerable emotions – there was so much to embrace. My family recently endured the tragic loss of my spirited aunt & one of the girls at last nights dinner is coming up on 6 months since losing her twin brother. It was a whirlwind of things appreciated & treasured; each one of us contributing significance & offering a safe place to let our hair down. Find rest in the place you’re in, wander through your wilderness of uncertainty with grace & hope, treasure the people close to you & remind yourself that the very breath you breath is a gift.

I was thinking about this sweet shoot I styled & I’m falling in love with it all over again! Look at the moment of that dress though!! 🤤 ••
I hope you guys had the best long weekend! I found the tastiest rainbow veggie + lime crema salad recipe that I’ll make for the rest of my life, suh gud! But the best part was having a sleepover with 2 of our besties @kelseyhettinga & her husband Tim. We made margs & watched a movie then they crashed in the guest room. Kelsey and I made coffee together in the morning, got ready & went shopping and then prepped food for a bbq with the rest of our besties! @kaleighdsimmons @amberannie @ @djorn0.
My heart is so filled up & so grateful for our little community of buddies! 📷: @helloimemmaquinn

(Read through for an exciting opportunity!!) Here I am doing what I love with the worlds sweetest assistant! She is also one of the best friends I have ever known! Along with the beauty that took this photo, @thecozinessconsultant who also happens to be my sister. I’m feeling extra grateful for the team of people that don’t only love me, they support me through moments of weakness and of celebration! They’ve breathed encouragement and affirmation every step of the way but also offered honest, kind and fresh perspective when I’ve felt stuck. •
I don’t believe a business is (as) successful when you don’t have people behind you that believe in your vision and want to share in it with you!
So I want to welcome you, business owners and creatives, to share in a celebration of support and give honor where it’s due! Would any of you be interested in a small get together where you can bring one of your support people, (maybe the ones who don’t get recognized enough) and treat them to dinner and a mingling evening?! It would be a limited event with enough spots for 10 of you to bring along one additional person where you can treat them to dinner and drinks and honor their support?? A chance to show them just how appreciated they are! I’m just throwing the idea out before I make the plan to see if I’ve got any interest! If you’re interested, please comment below or DM me!
To all of the behind the scenes friends and family, you’re the bomb. Seriously. Thanks for all of your support – I know that I couldn’t have done it without you! •
