CIRCA 2007 | To my favorite hero (@larrysnotoninsta) and veteran and to so many more who have sacrificed, thank you. Happy Memorial Day. #memorialday #merica #america #tenyears #airforce
I love my people. Hope you guys have some good times planned with yours on this holiday. Happy Sunday, loves. 📷|@ryanflynnphoto
Let us be thankful. Let us lead with grateful hearts. Not from a place of striving or fear. Let us trust You more tomorrow than today . Let us be thankful. Thankful for all things. The things we understand and those that we've yet to comprehend. Let us be... #myprayer #goodnight
Posting a pic of my face cause I don't do it often and every now and then I feel like you need to see it to 1.) remember that there's a person behind all of these posts and 2.) 'cause I actually like this one even though it's super styled and oh so cheesy. Sure hope you guys are ready for the long weekend and getting some good time in with family and friends. Happy Friday, friends. 📷| @ryanflynnphoto . . . . . . #friday #tgif #weekend #outdoor #patio #style #diy #life #entertain #summer #ideas #idea #bhgsummer #bhg #seattle #pnw #pnwlife #iger #insta #instagood #igersseattle #thehomedepot #shibori #hmong #indigo #blue #natural #boho #bohemian
This. Literally took my breath away today. @theloveforest you so beautifully captured whoever this amazing soul is and I was so shocked/inspired/challenged as I thought about all the reasons it captured my attention. ... It's not often in this segment of our industry (design/arts/creative/styling) that you get to see a black woman captured in such a way. ... Fully natural hair, peanut butter complexion, Bohemian style. I know some may not get this but for me, seeing this was a big deal. There's beauty everywhere and it comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, I know that. BUT there's just something about seeing YOU and others who are similar to you represented in new ways in order to bring inspiration. There's power in that. ... Way to go for stretching and stepping outside of the norm and what's always been done. I'm now craving more and sure to MAKE myself the subject of a creative session such as this in the VERY near future. ... I'm hoping my two extremely articulate friends can help add words and share hearts here: @arielleestoria + @discoverdiaries. I'm at a loss. . . . . #natural #hair #naturalhair #beauty #styled #wedding #photography #life
Cause I'm a dork and it's Thursday and I've never used this #hyperlapse app. Just having fun. Happy, happy friends. 😘
You guys. I had to. Thought I'd serve you some ridiculous cuteness on this Thursday cause I just can't stop looking at this photo. This is a pic of my third-born, Logan. Circa 2009. You're welcome. #throwback #tbt #throwbackthursday #besthairaward #hawaii #mybookiebear
Still drooling over my friend Melinda of @house214design and her oh so home-y tour for #celebratesummerhometour. I love the story behind why she does what she does and how her mama had a huge role to play. Kudos for your ode to mama, friend, and for living your heart's passion. If you haven't checked out the other amazing gals on this tour, take some time to throughout this week. Thanks again to @julieblanner for hosting us all. p.s. can we talk about this cabinetry and the organization here? And the color. My fave. Of course. . . . . . . . . #ilovecolour #colorstory #home #msliving #bhgsummer #countrylivingmag #darling #modern #traditional #kitchen #organization #design #style
COMMUNITY | today as I sat at a red light I watched two older women, probably in their mid-seventies, pull weeds together/garden and dump them into a waste bin. I admired them for many reasons: one reason being that they were actually talking to one another and truly seemed to enjoy interaction with each other. I thought it was beautiful and wondered 20 years from now, when many from that generation have gone, what community will look like for you and me. Will we be able to, as those who have gone before us, honor their legacy? Will we hold and still value true relationships, face to face interaction, human touch? Or, will we allow culture and trend to dictate and tell us what relationship isn't? I love what I get to do here and through the blog, make no mistake. I love that when some of us would likely never meet, this space provides a platform for us to come together. I love, even more, building community with those around me, in my life, day-to-day. There's truly nothing like it. Just some simple thoughts and super #thankful for those whom God has placed in my life to help pull virtual and real weeds and help my garden flourish.
Okay guys. Yay or nay? I don't typically post #fashion stuff here but something about these @josefinasportugal #shoes just makes me #happy. Weigh in. I'm pretty sure I'd rock 'em. Would you? @honestlywtf they sure look cute on you!
