My sister @lecia_m is giving woman the incredible gift of permission. Permission to be bold, to be Brave, to own their curves, their style, their hearts and minds, she just so happens to be a photographer. You may have seen and influx of epic images of me on the gram and it's because I got to be apart of a movement. A movement to empower me. My soul came alive and I'll never forget driving home in my sand covered gown feeling alive because I went and stood in the waves with this gorgeous horse. These sessions awakened something in me... and I'll never be the same. I would have never bought this stunning black dress before and now, I'm owning it like a curvy goddess. To my #tampabay gals, I promise, this investment into your soul is worth it. It's worth pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone. This weekend, go stand with a beast and be the Beauty among him. Message @lecia_m 🦄 shout out to @shelby.sheene who interviewed me like a boss babe 😘🦄
When your best friend climbs out on the rock just to sit next to you. 😭 I can't 😭😭😭 Merpup with her mermaid, taking some time to fuel their souls. Little queenie feels about the ocean how I feel about the mountains... when she hasn't been near it, her heart goes wild longing for its beauty... #lucypevenpoo *no merpups where harmed in the making of this photo. She stepped out on the flat rock all on her own and found herself her comfy spot.
You guys, I did so much today that I'm actually upset. Aren't Sundays for pjs and mimosas? Psh. Not this one. Raise your hand if you rolled out of bed and rocked out 5 days worth of house chores 🙋🏼 oh and btw while I type this to you, André is working on our budget... I sit and scoff in the face of adulting.... bahahahhactually it's pretty wise. But sometimes wisdom looks like gray hairs and planning when I'd rather be mermaiding. You think André would notice if I just snuck off to the bath with some wine and Netflix? Let's see hehe
Friyay!!! Anyone else just so excited about life?! God is good. Cheers to thankfulness! To abundance! To love! To pizza! 😂👊🏻😜 And to kisses. Hurry home @andrelamothe513 😘 Image by @daniellepastula 💕
Anyone else need a delish doughnut to wash down the no more holiday party blues? Who am I kidding, everyday is a party over here- we just call them laundry party, dish party, wish it were cheat day kale party, still have makeup on from yesterday's slay party, why don't the kids pick up their stuff party, and more! We're a full on party life family. Ps YOLO and doughnut eat after all that partying you've been doing 😂 Image from my new favorite food feed @handletheheat 😍
Momas, I dare you to take your dreams and put them in front of you. Leave notes of legacy around your house and let them see it. Put your dreams on display of the glass that tells a story... Let your mirrors become billboards of declarations rather than noises of criticism. I dare you to walk through rejection and let them see the heart of a champion through it. I dare you to be the most epic example of a warrior serving the king through open hands of the things the dreams you value the most. I dare you to love them through leading them with your habits...let's them glean from the seeds around your hem. Let them see you buried and remind them you're being planted. Let them watch you build the legacy you will leave for them by placing one small brink today that you will build upon again tomorrow. It's time moma. Get to it warrior queen. 💕
31 days of brand changing coaching. You me and a community ready to stand beside you. This week, I launched my first ever group coaching course with a twist- we are covering more than just branding, and seats almost sold out within the first hour! That's because over the past year alone, I've coached photographers to booking more, playing more, quitting full time jobs, making more and dreaming more. Actual numbers include sales increases of 600% and $50,000 worth of bookings... in just a few months time! Our brand begins with us and for the first time ever I'm offering a seat among the round table of MVPs so you too can change your life and increase sales! A brand is more than just pretty fonts- it's a firm belief that you are worth paying... and that belief begins with an encouraged business owner who knows how to brand and believes they are unstoppable. Join me and get exclusive access live fb events and a course designed to change your life and your brand! Grab your seat in my link in my bio because I only have a few spots left!! Can't wait to help your change everything 💕❤️
Just keep breathing. Be still and know. His timing is perfect... enjoy the journey. 💕 📷 by @katiewheeler
He made my coffee this morning, cleaned my kitchen and folded all of the laundry while I sit drinking it. 😭 I married the best man... and now, we make plans for the day which at some point should include doughnuts. Thankful that God kissed me with a man who chooses to love me and call me beautiful even in yoga pants and messy bun. Cheers to wonderful covenants 💕 @andrelamothe513 you've got me. . . . 📷@plubprettysugar
Happy January 1st! Yasssss girl, I said January. Wait, you've never had a new year shift mid year? Oh honey, today is your day.

But first, Friday it so hard. Flat bread, wine and cookies like it's the last cheat day of the week. Snuggle your handsome hubby, give your puppy an extra treat, and Netflix until you get caught up. Feeling discouraged, world changer? I so know what it's like for the soul to need a hug..... so I've got one for you... Click the link in my bio to see a course I just launched.... Just for you....image by @delightandbe 💕
Girl, you've got this. On the other side of today, there are people who need to hear your story, see your quirks, be given permission to make mistakes and be empowered in spite of them. Your story holds history that unlocks others into destiny. Authenticity wins. Keep going. Change perspectives... drink that coffee and get to it. ❤️💕👊🏻 cheering you on...
Fear. I've wrestled it. It's stood in the stage of my heart and barked at me, like a wild beast strutting to and fro, frothing. I suppose I can write it out because I've sat its audience and entertained it's spewing. It's sick really, that the imagination can be so tainted by its audacity. And yet I've bought the ticket to its show and placed the truth in an understudy position, hushed the crowed of imaginary onlookers as they pull of remembrances of truth. My , my little one. He scoffs at me while on stage, hasn't He forgotten you? Buried alive at His hand? His words sting. They always do. He slithers as he stand proudly jeering at me on the stage. After months, I stand. And I as I do, he must submit. His gestures cease terrified that I have moved. Everything is silenced until I speak. You may no longer speak. And his mouth is bound. I move toward him and he begins to cower. I step up onto the stage he once occupied and his eviction notice is presented at my posture. Being buried, looks a lot like being planted. Behold, the fruit of my season. Get. Out. And he vanishes... A single hand clap comes from the audience. And audience of One. #authorjuliestory
When grow old, he whispers, we'll have a dog. So let's breed her, so we'll always have a apart of her with us. 😭😭😭 and then my heart burst into a million pieces because my husband knows I love her, and knows how much our kids adore her. And now apart of her will always be with us 😭😭😭😭 #lucypevenpoo
One of those kinds of mornings- put your party straw in your coffee cup and get your mind right. Today is your January first. Again. Champions make adjustments not excuses. They put their pinky up and toast the day with exuberant anticipation of good things. Get your mind swirling with thankfulness and today, you get to taste and see the goodness of God. Mom boss, boss babe, hot moma extraordinaire- You've got this, rock star. Pinky up- cheers!
When he married me, he married us. He became an insta father and what an incredible one he is. He loved them fully, completely and truly constantly sacrificing himself to give them his best. Watching him father our sweet babes is one of the most precious gifts I have ever been given. I waited for this and now I am living in the fruit of garden I prayed for 😭 Happy Father's Day to my man @andrelamothe513 💕#thankfulthreenowfour some of my favorite images by @kristenboothphotog
Champions don't make excuses, they make adjustments. -@billyalsbrooks How you think will determine the outcome of your day. Your day will determine the outcome of your year. Make habits happen. Growth begins underground before anyone sees what's been happening in secret. You determine if your dreams will happen. #momboss #bossbabe
Measure of success: does she know she is loved? Is she free and empowered? Does she know she was born to change the world? Does she know she is a queen? The most important work is in the home. The urgency to be know outside of it is secondary. That is the measure of queen. Are you victorious with your most important purpose? #momboss #lucypevenpoo ps why isn't Lucy that little anymore? 😭 shout out to our favorite cupcakes ever @georgetowncupcake
Praying over your dreams and you hair be big and sexy because they are both life changers 😂 Also, let's remember that Jesus Himself gave an idea, a revelation to a woman (Ruth) that she should make and bake cookies from the oven, the womb of the kitchen gives birth to Heavenly morsels. May you taste and see the goodness of the Lord... out of the belly flows life...we just bless sister Ruth and her legacy of obedience. Eat the cookies and bless the Lord... 👏🏻🏃♀️😍😭💕
In her death, you'll find her beauty gone, but if you keep looking, you'll find it once again. Her neck holds history of pressing against opposition, being hidden under her piers. She stretched and bent herself to find a more pleasing posture. In her curve you see her struggle. It speaks of her reach towards the light, craving to be touched, and in return, it welcomed her to open to its invitation. She reached, it invited. Her stem is marked with grooves and divots, a ghost of where new life could have grown if she were given the chance. Her stem, that once connecting her to a life giving fortress, is now jagged and torn where she was broken from the branches that refreshed her constantly. Her once soft white petals are now like quenched waves with crescents that surrendered to the drought of her existence. She collapsed around her vulnerable center, caving in and protecting her core as the last of her moisture left her. She had life in abundance and was ripped from her powerful position, but in her death came life. In death, by her beauty, an even greater existence. And as she died slowly, she was giving; being a token of expression of love from one to another. As sat upon the crown of one truly loved, each second being there her life ending, she died upon me as symbol of invisible love becoming visible through her. Others might say To me a flower was given.. but I say In her dying, he kissed my soul. That is the story of the magnolia my husband gave to me. It laid upon the dash of my car and when I picked it up to bring her inside, I saw her the crests of her petals and began writing in my mind. This is constant for me... it's just I don't often put everyday mind writing it to paper as it would be constant. But maybe I should 😍😊😘 This is my Gift. And I play games challenging myself constantly with the fascinations of describing life seen through words felt. All day, everyday. Words are my companions.
