Thinking about the sunshine & missing it’s cozy, warm touch. Probably because I’m sitting in my car while my babe naps in his car seat and I’m surrounded by white sky poop aka snow – you can thank my kids for that sweet little description.
It’s always kind of nice when I’m forced into this position of patience and quiet while my sweet one is resting. I mean give me alone time & some soft music and it’s a recipe for self reflection, the older I get the more I realize how quick I am to go deep – I wonder why that is?! I guess I’m more willing to become aware of my shortcomings and let the Lord help me become someone better, self reflection isn’t always fun – the list of things to work on is endless, but it’s in this safe space where I can also give the Lord a chance to remind me of the areas I should be proud. Today I was reminded that growth is a lifelong process, it’s not making a decision today to be someone who’s got it all together and by tomorrow having it all figured out. It’s ok to let the process happen, to grow little by little and even let myself fail along the way – without letting it defeat me. One foot in front of the other, get back up, try again, change the strategy, let patience have its perfect work. I’m a work in progress & I am a-ok with that! 📷 @kelseyhettinga .

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 .

You should know that when I’m shooting, I always have music playing (usually in back pocket) and there is always impromptu dancing and singing that happens! It’s the only reason I’m not terribly uncomfortable during these photoshoots. Dancing is like therapy for me, I get crazy ya’ll. Like, I don’t hold back for nobody!! This is just a moment of the passion captured by the lovely @happyphotoco who encouraged me to move to the beat of my own drum during our shoot! 🖤ps. More styling with this fur jacket coming soon beccccaaaaaause look at it! Swoon.

(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! •
