“I had to learn the hard way that treating the skin like an A-bomb drop zone is completely counterproductive. And through my healing journey, I've discovered something miraculous: that moisturizers can heal in unimaginable ways.” - Yancy Lael

Seth and I are gearing up for a fall full of weddings, as well as a fully booked room (God-willing) that we will be renting out on Air Bnb. The next couple of weeks will be filled with remodeling, painting, and decorating; hopefully finishing in time to rent out our Air Bnb bedroom the middle of August. We’ve never been “routine” people, but right now literally every day can be ...

"The future is something that everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes per hour, whatever he does, whoever he is." - C.S. Lewis

I can’t believe that we are halfway through this year. It seems as though we just rang in 2016. To be honest, Seth and I entered into 2016 with both excitement and uncertainty. ( Oh, wait, that’s the story of our life together!) Regardless, here we are six months into the scariest, but the most rewarding season of our lives. You see, at the beginning of this year, Seth made ...

You are OK . A year ago these words, placed strategically on a sticker on a mirror, meant everything to me. They resonated as something my soul desperately needed to hear. I was in pain from the death of my beloved grandmother. Frozen at a fork in the road, both paths named career. Yet I was OK, even if I had to hear it from a sticker on a mirror. ...

Remember when I said I was working on balance? You know how I was working on my not-so-resolution? Yes, well, I lost it for a moment. The last month hasn’t been the easiest, and I’m not saying that to complain or to gain sympathy. I’m saying that to be honest. I went from balanced and positive, to flat on my back in one week, and it’s taken the past month ...

I know it’s been a while since I posted. I’ve been caught up in life, and while life itself can be quite lovely, I definitely missed writing about it. Fall flew by, and just in time for Christmas, I started working in a salon again. Christmas itself was fantastic! Seth and I had a fun little party with friends, and then we drove to Mississippi to spend time with our ...

"Buy what you don’t have yet, or what you really want, which can be mixed with what you already own. Buy only because something excites you, not just for the simple act of shopping." -Karl Lagerfeld

It’s wishlist time again. I’ve evaluated my closet, and taken one last look at the fall runways. I’m always a fan of basics, but it never hurts to have a few trends up my sleeve. A few of my favorite trends this year are “Sweater Dressing“, “Normcore“, and “Sixties“. These trends befit my own personal style, and in some ways even enhance it. – High Neck Sweater in Light Pink: ...

Fall Forward

Fall is well on it’s way, so there is no time like the present to prepare our closets for cool mornings at the farmer’s market, and late-night bon fires with friends. Changing leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and layered clothing make this my favorite time of year; however, taking a wardrobe seamlessly from one season to another can be tricky. We all know the ancient rules of Labor Day which state ...

I’ve been at a stand still. A brick wall. I’ve tried pushing forward, but I haven’t been able to budge. I love having pictures to go with my words. I want everyone to see my inspiriation; the things I find beautiful in my life. But the pictures don’t define me. They don’t tell you who I am, or what I really want you to understand. They don’t show you what ...

Freedom is from within. - Frank Lloyd Wright

  Freedom is being the person you were truly meant to be. Freedom is tuning out other people, even the ones you love, and listening to the one who knows you better than you know yourself. Freedom is knowing that there are different seasons in life, and being open to the possibilities of what your next one could be. Freedom is there, but you have to accept it. I have ...
