Oh hey there! I see you, hiding behind an outdated website, or a logo you slapped together in Photoshop in 20 mins. Are you feeling like your brand isn’t working for you… but against you? Isn’t saying what you need it to say? Are you embarrassed by your branding? .⠀ Girl, let me tell you. I’ve been there. I know. Ugh, and I’m a graphic designer! Before I rebranded I was hiding. I was playing small because I was embarrassed by my own branding. So I’ve got two things to tell you...⠀ .⠀ No. 1 -- Stop. Stop playing small. Now is the time to give your brand a visual voice -- a presence -- that you are PROUD of. There is nothing that can compare to the confidence that solid branding gives you. It made me hustle a little harder. It made me show up. I was no longer afraid to say ‘hey! I’m here. I can do that thing you need -- in fact I’m pretty awesome at it.’ Confidence, Friend, that is what solid branding gives you.⠀ .⠀ No. 2 -- In case you haven’t heard -- I’m back at work! After 3+ months off for maternity leave, I’m back (and so excited!). BUT I only have two spots left for full branding (website + brand) for the REST. OF. THE. YEAR! So, if you’re ready to elevate your brand, now’s the time! Contact me today (links in profile) these spots are gonna go fast. 💋
Ahhh I’m in love with my new sandals (and all of their sparkly goodness). I got them over a week ago but I haven’t worn them yet… because I’m waiting to get a pedicure first!⠀ .⠀ I texted my friend Melody (@finickydesigns) who’s little guy was born 6 days before mine and asked if she needed a ‘Mom-Break’ -- cuz oh my goodness, I sure do! We have appointments this evening at @BeautyBarInc. Pedicures + Wine?? Um, yes please!⠀ .⠀ The only question is… what color polish?
It happened suddenly. And we had no idea what was going on. This poor pup was hungry ALL. OF. THE. TIME. And we fed her. A LOT. But within a matter of weeks the weight loss was undeniable. Her ribs stuck out. Her hip bones stuck out. Our strong and vibrant #BrandyTheGSD was now slender and frail.⠀ .⠀ No matter how much we fed her, she continued to lose weight. And rapidly. In the course of several weeks there were multiple vets visits, blood work, medications, and special foods. She went from 65 lbs (still a growing puppy) to 48 lbs. And I was devastated.⠀ .⠀ At the time I couldn’t bring myself to share about it. That was a year ago. But Brandy just had her yearly check up with the same vet -- the one who diagnosed her with EPI and told us how to treat her -- and Brandy is now a VERY healthy 83 lbs! ⠀ .⠀ I kept saying it over and over in my head after we found out… 83 lbs. 83 lbs! I didn’t think we’d get here. I didn’t think she’d still be with us. But she is and she is SO healthy.⠀ .⠀ EPI is a pancreatic disorder where basically Brandy’s pancreas stopped making digestive enzymes. So no matter how much she ate, none of it was digested. She was quite literally starving to death. But thanks to our very keen vet (EPI is rare) we have been able to care for her. Within 10 days of diagnosis + medicating she was already up 5 lbs. And now, a year later she has almost DOUBLED her lowest weight. ⠀ .⠀ I look at Brandy some days and wonder what I did to deserve her in my life. I think most other dog owners know what I mean when I say my dog is a better ‘person’ than I am. Double tap if that's you. 💋⠀ .⠀ (photo credit: @stephanielynnephotography)
Ready to travel through time?⠀ .⠀ This little guy turned 3 months old today (whaaaa??) and while I haven't been great at posting his monthly photos -- I have been TAKING them. (That counts for something, right? It took me way too long time to find the perfect font combo for this project). So go ahead and swipe to see The Bubs grow right before your eyes.⠀ .⠀ #MoriahRionaBaby
