This chilly spring day has me daydreaming about trips and travels under the warm summer sun. ☀️ . Last summer, Ben and I traveled to Germany, Austria, and Czech Republic - and I'll always remember wandering the historic streets, below the beautiful, intricate buildings, hand in hand. . I'm planning a surprise trip to Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸 to celebrate our anniversary this summer! Have you ever been? (P.S. I'm just over here singing the new Ed Sheeran song Barcelona... 🎶)
Just THREE more days until our Template Collection launches at @withgraceandgold! 🎉 . It's been long days, long nights, and 41 days of work in a row 😴 but I'm so hopeful and excited about the business owners who will benefit from these awesome designs! (And I'm also excited for a nap! 😜)
The days and nights have been long, but nothing compares to the excitement of creating a beautiful home for each business owner we serve! 💻 . Super excited for the week ahead at @withgraceandgold! Happy weekend! 😊
9 Days • In just 9 days, I'll be heading to Scottsdale to launch @withgraceandgold Template Collection! 🎉 . It has been SUCH a labor of love - and I just can't wait for everyone to see the final products! Photo by @andreamichelle @loftphotography
Hot yoga was so tough but so good! Every class, I can feel myself getting stronger and more balanced - it's so cool! 🌿 . Having a class every day of the week has been so, so helpful for staying balanced in the midst of a busy season at @withgraceandgold!
Happy Monday! 🎉 . Today, we are putting the finishing touches on our Template Collection at @withgraceandgold - which is so exciting! . We've never worked on a project so large before, so I'm definitely going to treat myself with @starbucks when it's complete! ☕️ 😊 . What are you up to today? P.S. Will you be watching @bachelorabc tonight? 🌹
In between a really delicious home-cooked dinner (Vegan jackfruit tacos! 🌮) and dancing in the kitchen with Ben 💃🕺🏻... I worked on a whole lot of @withgraceandgold goodness over the weekend. It's going to be such a great week though - starting with a great workday, hot yoga at @theyogaroomec, and the @bachelorabc finale! 🎉 Monday, here I come! 😊
Entrepreneurship is... working 29 days in a row (and counting) to prepare for a super exciting shop launch at @withgraceandgold! Slowly but surely, the to-do list is getting shorter and shorter! 😴 . One thing that has kept me going is attending yoga or barre classes 6 days per week for the past 3 weeks! It may seem like a lot - but it's really nice to have something to break up the busy and clear my mind. . What do you do to unwind from busy work weeks? 🙂
Hot yoga tonight was really, really great! Before attending classes, I never really set aside time to check in with myself, to count my blessings, or to check out of the day. I think that's why I love it so much! 🌿 . Other things I'm really looking forward to: yoga pants I ordered from @aerie, new essential oils, and finally, my very first barre class on Thursday! . I've definitely become wellness obsessed. 😅
My sweet friend @laurenheimstudio designed this mug - and it's such a beautiful reminder! ❤Happy weekend!
This week, it has been long days and long nights at @withgraceandgold! Normally, I try my best to work only from 7-3 but with an upcoming surprise and launch 🎉 I have had to put in extra hours as often as possible! Today, that meant a 14-hour workday 😴 It'll be so worthwhile come March 24th! It's so soon! 🎉 . P.S. Apparently there is major snow storm on its way! I'm excited to stay bundled up tomorrow! ❄️
It's another cozy day of working from home! When you work from home, there isn't always a clear ending to your day - so lately, I've been attending fitness classes in the evening to mark the end of the day! Do you have any post-workday routines? 🌿
Today at @withgraceandgold, we shared a few of our favorite productivity tips! The truth is, small business owners wear a lot of hats! From operations and sales to marketing and creative - there is a lot of responsibility! . In the end, systems help so much! Systems allow us to provide a great experience for our clients by day - and set aside time for the people and hobbies we love by night. . Now, I'm off to the gym before settling in to watch the newest @fixerupperhgtv! 🎉
This afternoon, I attended my very first hot yoga class! I thought I knew what to expect - but it is seriously really warm in there! ☀️ I followed up yoga with a mango smoothie and tabbouleh for dinner - both recipes from @ohsheglows! . It's not always easy to pencil in self-care - especially with the pressures of work and life - but it's so worthwhile! . Next up: I'll be starting dance classes in March! 💃 This may or may not be a quarter life crisis... but I'm going to embrace it! 😜
It's time for #fridayintroductions! 🎉 . I'm Kelly! I'm 29 🙈 years old! I'm wife to my college sweetheart Ben, who is my role model and best friend. I'm an entrepreneur - which, even after 3 years, is so exciting to say! I'm Co-Founder of @withgraceandgold where I serve fellow businsss owners through branding, web design, and education! . I'm so, so excited because spring is almost here! 🌿 I'm really looking forward to planting my garden and being able to walk to the gym without the risk of frostbite! ❄️ I'd love to meet you and I hope you'll say hello! 😊
Last night, I started reading The Magnolia Story and couldn't put it down! Just a few sentences in, I felt more inspired than ever to pursue what sets my soul on fire - and to be OK in the in between moments when I'm not quite sure what does. Everything unfolds perfectly - even if we can't see how just yet. . All I know is: I'm super excited to visit @magnolia next month for even more learning and growing! ✈️
