Vacation last week with my two favorite people on this planet. ❤️
Gull Lake. ❤️
Jana & Scott’s wedding was one for the books. More to come. ❤️
Stunning bride and groom in a gorgeous desert shoot. | Special thanks to @Dang.finerentals @bloomandblueprint @somethingbeautifulstyles @Katherynbignun @Abbygracephoto @showit.co #ShowitUnited2017
Chicago by boat.
Moved into my new house tonight; first night here! This is the view out my bedroom window. ❤️ I think I'll like it here. #Home
Truly SERIOUS work on the apartment means caffeine and Lord of the Rings Special Extended Edition. 12 hours of epicness should see lots done here. ❤️
Fabulous dinner at Maru Sushi Kalamazoo. The Cosmo roll is delicious. ❤️🍣 @marurestaurant
Can't believe we're so lucky to call this our new home. First day at the new pool!! 😎❤️
Often times at weddings, I double as an assistant to the bride. I don't mind at all, especially when I get a few minutes alone with this stunning bouquet.
Gull Lake sunset is #PureMichigan.
Diffusing Thieves, Purification, and Excite today as I do some chores at the apartment and prepare for an afternoon wedding at the lake. Windows are open after a cool night and it smells heavenly in here. Thieves always to support my immune system, Purification to help with some odors from the apartment garbage disposal, and Excite for an uplifting mood. Excite is a limited oil that I received for free for being a Young Living Essential Rewards member, but I hope it becomes available to everyone soon because it's one of my favorites right now.
I cannot wait to add art and photographs and books and couches and tvs and kids and friends and wine to this space.
The kids love to swim in the cold pool, and then lay out on the hot cement to warm up. Our last day at the apartment pool was pretty nice, but I'm looking forward to the heated pool at the new house. 😎
Summer Priorities. 🍦🌅🚤
When you buy your #FirstHome, and buy the wrong @kwikset #kwikset re-key kit, you might end up totally destroying a deadbolt. It's only day 2, I'll get the hang of this. 😅😂
First sunset at my first house. ❤️🏡🍾
I love my new print and reclaimed barn wood frame from @causebox. #causebox #whateveryouarebethegoodone
I'm spending my Valentine's evening in bed with @joannagaines and my copy of #themagnoliajournal. I'm dosing up on @younglivingeo Young Living Essential Oils because I'm not feeling 100% - #Thieves and #InnerDefense for the bug going around, #Valor and #PeaceandCalming for my heart this lonely evening. Post-divorce Valentine's can be rough, but I'm being open and authentic about the difficult journey to a better life. Someday soon, there will be someone to share it with me. But for now? I'll be okay. #valentinesday
