If you’re still looking for a stocking stuff, every lady could use some wisdom from @sandrawstanley! You can find on Amazon or at a North Point Campus if you’re local to Atlanta! ✨ Loved working on this product project with @sweetwoodcreativeco and @jamie.cargill (@northpointresources).
Last night, I was checking to see why we hadn’t received a check-in notification for our flight between islands for today. When I went to the airline’s website, it simply stated operations ceased on November 11. ✈️ I’m sorry, what?! After a solid 30 seconds of staring in disbelief with all the thoughts of “what when how why” swirling, I immediately called @hawaiianairlines who got to work booking both flights that had been canceled. 🙌🏽 Life throws us curveballs. Thankfully, this was a minor issue with an easy solution, but sometimes they’re not. Sometimes the moments of disbelief last a lot longer. The solutions aren’t as easy to figure out, or the curveballs are life-altering. In those overwhelming moments, maybe we just need to look at the very day we’re living in. Trust there is a bigger picture, but figure out what we can do in this very moment to bring purpose to the curveball. At the end of the day, however many it takes to get to that day, it will be ok. We will be ok.
Soaking in all the sleeps even if I do still wake up at 4AM here in Hawaii. 🤦🏻♀️ Why do you think our culture prides itself on busy? It’s almost like you aren’t properly hustling or succeeding if you have any downtime. I am so guilty of projecting that idea on myself and others. I feel unproductive or behind if my schedule isn’t constantly brimming on overload. I feel like there’s always more I can be doing, and initially, the idea of taking a break breeds more anxiety than the actual work load! So backwards. • Rest is necessary. It’s restorative and redeeming. I’m all about that grind (cheers to you hardworking bosses!), but what good is it if our quality of life is nothing more than exhaustion and paychecks. When do we have time for relationship and influence, love and conversation without agenda? • I love the message @jennakutcher has overlooking the living space we’re visiting this week at #thekutchercondo. It says “when you get tired, learn to rest not quit”. I was chatting with my counselor about this idea, and she was sharing how we actually expand our capacities for productivity when we allow ourselves proper rest. So I can be MORE productive by taking breaks (whether that’s 10 minutes or 10 days)?! YES PLEASE. • Did you know, as believers, we’re commanded to rest? Which is, yet again, an example of Jesus’ love and desire for the best for us. It’s the little things y’all.
Snow is rare and magical in the south, and a snowy wedding is the ultimate unicorn for us! ❄️🦄 Amanda + Cody celebrated their marriage in a winter wonderland ceremony. Amanda’s whimsical florals and ice blue eyes bring me all the boho Sugar Plum Fairy feels.

Y’all, this. This was the night sky when we were leaving our friend’s wedding tonight...through an iPhone! And not one of those fancy iPhones. I’m still rocking like a 4. This snow fall has me all up in my feels. It’s so majestic. It makes me miss Colorado and all of it’s glory. I hope all my Atlanta friends are safe and warm. Happy Snow day! (We never get snow, ok?!IT’S EXCITING.) ❄️
Our Instagram game has been as bad as my ability to keep plants alive this week, but it’s been a constant mad dash to get orders completed before Christmas deadlines! Our (my) schedule has also been cut short due to the fact I leave for •H A W A I I• on Monday. (Insert my best Carlton dance.) 🌊 Brandon and I celebrated 5 years last week (we definitely high-fived the fact we are dominating this whole marriage thing)! We’re super pumped for some adventure and QT. We’re also saying sweet things to each other on top of a mountain after a much anticipated session with @mrslindseyroman! 🌋 Is there any MUST sees, eats, or drinks on Maui, Kauai, or Oahu? We have quite the list already, and plan on living in our bathing suits and tennis shoes, but any faves are welcomed!
