Finally I am doing something with all of those things I have pinned on Pinterest...or maybe just with the food. I am on a mission to try out the pins that claim to be easy (and semi healthy) and then review the good ones for you!! These Fish Tacos with Lime Crema (I’m guessing a fancy word for lime cream sauce) turned out amazing. Though I did made a huge mess(I always do), they were very easy to make. Plus, everyone loved them. 🙌🏻 Head in over to my blog for the recipe (link in profile). The recipe was created by @aheadofthyme and I will definitely be trying more.
The other day my husband said something to me that totally made my day. He said “I’m not sure what you are doing but In the past couple months you have managed to become even more beautiful.” As a 30 year old Mom of two kids, those words are like heaven. All of my worries of aging, having loose belly skin, saggy boobs..etc, melted away. I felt so loved and even more beautiful. So what changed? Well two things stood out to me. 1) I started wearing new makeup. My husband loves me without makeup and I truly believe that LimeLight’s wax base foundation gives a look of flawless skin without looking cakey. 2) Since starting my journey with LimeLight I have also started a journey of self love. I want to help other women love themselves and find their own beauty. So, of course, I have to join them on that journey. • I stopped criticizing myself out loud • I started reading again • I started focusing on what I love about me I stead of what I hate It is impossible to wake up and just decide to love ourselves after years of self doubt and criticism. By treating ourselves as someone worthy of love and respect, we slowly start to believe it. Do that and watch yourself blossom. You are never too old to start loving yourself.
When is the last time you had family portraits taken? It’s really hard to gather everyone up, get them to coordinate clothing and fingers crossed the kids cooperate... Why not do something a little different? Digital portraits might be just what you need. Or if you are like me, you might just love them! Tag a friend that you think would love these! DM me for information.
I’m pretty sure I have a bird band on my hands. I don’t photograph a lot of clients anymore(okay none) but I still consider myself a photographer. How many of you have creative hobbies? I notice that when I start to feel uninspired or stagnant, I can just pick up my camera and let the creativity flow. I keep telling myself that I’m going to open up my business again but it really is time consuming and with a weekend job for Bare Minerals, building my Limelight business, attempting to start blogging consistently AND raising two littles at home (one of which is homeschooling), I’m just a little strapped for extra time 🤷🏼♀️ To be honest, I’m perfectly happy photographing my kids and animals.
Where are my target lovers at? I think I might be making up for a lifetime without it 🤷🏼♀️ I didn’t step foot in my first Target until I was over 18. Crazy right? Now, it’s my happy place and cures ALL moods. It’s especially helpful for crazy child syndrome. There are few things a nice latte and the home section of Target can’t fix...especially when my kids are quietly stuffing their faces with cake pops (can I get a double tap amen?)
Where are my mamas that HATE to be in front of the camera at? For a girl that’s on a journey to self love, I sure pick myself apart a lot. I had my husband take some pictures and the girls and myself...and hated every single one of them. I almost deleted this picture but the more I look at it, the more I love it. If I look at a picture searching for my flaws, I will surely find them. Instead, I’m focusing on the silliness, the love, and knowing that the flaws I “see” are not really flaws at all. You don’t wake up one day and decide you love something you have torn apart for years. It takes time, healing, and learning to love. Here is one truth, if you look for the negative you will find it. If you make a point to find the positives, the beauty, and the good....one day that will be all you see. This year, I challenge you to get in front of the camera more...and criticize yourself less.
Oh hey Friday, I have missed you 😘 We are not very used to the cold here in South Alabama so as soon as it got above freezing, I took the girls outside to play. We were all getting a little bit of cabin fever. Trying to get work done on the computer with two crazy kids at home is NOT easy! Part of my New Years Resolution is to be a better keeper of my time. • Play with the girls more • Check my phone less • Be more intentional with my business and my time online. It’s so easy to get sucked into the mindless scroll, then complain we are on our phones too much. Something as simple as setting a timer to do a task (post, comment on posts, work on a blog post) will help you be more laser focused and give you more free time with your kiddos.
Hey friend, Did you receive a “fancy” camera for Christmas and have ZERO idea how to use it? I’m putting together my first free group #fancycamerabasics to help you out. My goal is to give you the ability to photograph your kids growing up (and hopefully print them out). Our phones are pretty amazing now but there is something special about the picture a “fancy” camera can take. You don’t need the fanciest of cameras either. Mine is a Nikon that I bought 4 years ago used for $300. If you are interested drop an emoji or say I’m in. I will reach out to you with the sign up info once it’s ready. Be patient with me as this is my first time doing all of this..and with 2 kids, a puppy, and kitten, and chickens at home, I’m clearly working on my time management skills. Tag a friend you think might want to join you.
