  • Happy birthday to one of my favorite people on the planet.
I truly believe that God has put you in my life for so many reasons, and I am beyond thankful for our years of friendship (and many more to come). I have a feeling that this year may be one your greatest yet! -

  • Currently hanging out in cornfields and barns with my bestie, and loving every second of it.

  • So many places to see, so little time.
Any guesses on where I am headed out of town Thursday?
Special prize to the first person who guesses right:) •

  • Slowly moving to fall things, although I would love to be in a cardi and boots right now!
This sweater tank is so good, and I showed it in my recent #amazonfinds haul in stories styled with shorts as well. It comes in a bunch of colors too! These jeans are actually a fun find, and from a store I haven’t really shopped at in years!  http://liketk.it/2E5RJ #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKunder50 #transitiontofall #LTKcurves #f21 #amazonfashion
  • My oldest daughter and I decided to play a little game and share it with y’all.
She’s been dying to do more videos with me, and this was too much fun. Plus, it’s so worth it to hear how much she enjoyed it! She rewatches the video all of the time, and she said she wants to know about all the things people comment (so help me out)! What are some of your favorite things to do with your littles?
P.S. this top is one I shared in my stories today and it’s a new fav! -

  • This #fridayintroductions post is a little different than most, but I feel like it’s so important to share!
A year ago, the woman in these pictures was terrified of not fitting in. I lost myself in the struggle to “keep up with joneses” of IG.
I would have ONLY posted photos like the next slide because... that’s what people wanted to see (or so I thought.) -
I was scared of being disliked, of not being accepted, of holding on to this standard of what perfection was.
-
Fast forward to today, I see my “societal flaws” as a sign that I have lived. -
I’m not afraid to go for things that are new to me, or that seem unattainable, because you’ll never know until you put in the time to try it. I was terrified to start at a CrossFit gym, because I didn’t look anything like the crossfit athletes I had seen. But... How can you say “no” to something when you haven’t given it your best effort? -
Now, you might see it looks a little different around here. Yes, there are still some professional photos from time to time.
However, my reasons for posting them are not the same. My favorites will forever be the raw snapshots into the life I am living (and loving), that I get to share with you in this journey of rediscovery in motherhood. -

  • “There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met.”
– Jim Henson
Taking the time to appreciate the friends I’ve just met, the RVA friends that I’ve made, and the friends I’ve had for what feels like a lifetime.
There is something to be said about who God brings into our lives to stay, and definitely something to appreciate in their loyalty. -
P.S. If you’re ever in Nashville, check out @adelesnashville. Some of the best food I’ve had (especially the dessert). #friendshipgoals
  • #ad End of summer means cramming in all of the last-minute road trips and adventures! We love #KinderJoy for a quick and easy snack in the car (and thankfully because of the spoon, one that doesn’t make a mess!) Plus, the toy keeps them entertained! What are your favorite road-trip necessities? -
