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! ✈️
My husband doesn't have an Instagram account - so I'm safe to share: I'm planning a surprise trip and hoping to surprise him on Valentine's Day! . Last year, we traveled to Germany, Austria, and Prague - which was so much fun! This year, I'd love if we could go someplace with beautiful scenery, walkable streets, and places for hiking or biking! Do you have any recommendations? I'd love to know! ✈️
Exciting moment of the day: the sun was still out after 5 PM! Spring is just around the corner! At least that's what I'm telling myself, from under my heated blanket! 🙈😬 . We are halfway through the work week, and I couldn't be more excited for a relaxing weekend!
It's hard for me to believe I've been vegan for 10 months! That's nearly one year of plant-based living! 🌿 . So much has changed since then - and all for the better! I'm excited to share more tomorrow on KellyZugay.com! Until then, I'm enjoying leftover jackfruit tacos! Jackfruit topped with guacamole and pico! 🌮
This week at @withgraceandgold we are making major progress on our soon-to-be-launched project! I'm so excited, because I know it's going to serve so many women in business so well! Every decision we make is with women in business in mind, and I'm so excited to see everything we are creating come to life! 😊
Clean house ✓ Super Bowl snacks ✓ PJs ✓ It was a super relaxing weekend through and through - and I'm so grateful! In addition to relaxing, we also did a bit of celebrating; my husband Ben *officially* got accepted to a doctoral program! Dr. Zugay, here you come! 🤓 I am so proud! 🎉 . Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
There is a great big world out there, just waiting to be explored. 🌎 Today on KellyZugay.com, I'm sharing all about my experience in Dallas, Texas - from the neighborhoods to the restaurants! 🥑 . Traveling is such a great way to learn and grow - and to experience cultures different from our own. We are all more alike than it may appear. ❤
Our week in Dallas is coming to an end! Today, we had an awesome photo session with @sarahdelanie and laid the foundation for an upcoming (March! 🌺) launch at @withgraceandgold! I've savored every second of the 75 degree weather and sunshine - and I'll always remember our spontaneous trip to Dallas! 😊
Leaving for Dallas on Sunday and feeling some kind of blessed to be able to travel to Texas twice in one year! (Dallas next week and Waco for @illumeretreat in April!) . Last night, Ben told me he, in fact, has a man crush on @chippergaines! 😜 I already loved @fixerupperhgtv but I extra love it now that Ben enjoys watching it with me... even if he doesn't share the same affinity for shiplap. Texas, here I come! ✈️
Let the 2017 travels begin! ✈️ On Sunday, I'll be heading to Dallas, Texas for a very intensive @withgraceandgold work week! We have a big, exciting project in the works, which calls for a week of Starbucks, Chipotle, and friendship! 🥑 . Have you been to Dallas? Do you have any recommendations?
It's been a great, full week at @withgraceandgold! Now, I'm turning off my computer and saying hello to the weekend! 🎉 . Have a wonderful weekend! ❤
Winter break is just about over for Ben... Then it's back to teaching! It's been really wonderful to spend a whole month side by side, but I'm sure he's excited for me to stop asking, Can you please go grab Starbucks for me? 😬🙈😜
Since Ben encouraged me have a relaxing Sunday, I tried to plan our anniversary trip! This year, I am very excited and humbled to be traveling to Scottsdale, Waco, Raleigh, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Las Vegas! For Ben and I, I researched everywhere from Key West to Portugal and couldn't decide where we should go! We are hoping for a beach and a walkable downtown with shops and restaurants! Do you have any suggestions? ✈️ Beautiful photo by @andreamichelle / @loftphotography
