Oh that Miss @lindsay_letters. She kind of nailed it with this one ❤️
It's a humble life, but it's ours filled with simple moments and the most beautiful people I know ❤️A flashback to the weekend because this Monday has just been the Monday-iest Monday of them all...
Lead with kindness and compassion for others with every step you take instead of assumption. Take pride in the stumbles and falls because they are helping to build your character and grow your patience. Leave others better than how they came. Push forward through any doubt and worry with unbridled faith and courage knowing you are not alone. Love wildly on those that walk alongside you so they will never doubt it, even for a moment. Believe that there is magic all around you and learn to look with eyes that recognize it without struggle. Trust that there is good in even the darkest of times and above all else, let joy lift you up and shine from every part of your being.
We grow gills in the summer ☀️
I don't really talk business on this feed because there is already so much to cover between family and home life (still working on that whole balance thing), but I am thrilled to share with you a sneak peek of the first collection as part of the Everyday Designs over at the shop (if you are new here you can follow along over at @karalayneandco to stay up-to-date). Releasing this week is a small collection of beautiful baby announcement templates which will be followed by senior announcements and holiday greetings early this fall. Not sure why I decided to start with baby announcements.... 😉 The best part? These are for anybody and everybody. I have created a video tutorial to show you how to customize the text, add in your image and where to print your cards. Affordable and gorgeous designs available as immediate digital downloads! If you want to know when they are released, simply click the link in my profile and choose 'Subscribe to my mailing list' and I will be popping in your inbox soon with more eye candy and all of the details and information. Stay tuned! And feel free to comment below with something you would love to see added to the shop in the future!✌️️
For the love of all that is home inspiration 😍😍😍 We are on our second day of 118 degrees here on the surface of the sun (read: Arizona) and while it shouldn't come as a surprise after 32 years, it's still a shock to the system each time. All I can think about is mountain air, my feet in the ocean or simply a lush, cool backyard to relax in 🌿 With that being said... who wants me to come and visit? 😉 // 📷: @theyellownote
Is the cheesecake from last night showing? 😜🙈🤘
Eventually I will post something other than family photos on here, but not before we celebrate this beautiful girl today as she turns nine years old. Unbelievable. The party started early this morning 🎉and I don't see it ending anytime soon which is just fine by me. My annual birthday letter to our Miss Blake is on the blog today if you care to read it (link in profile). Here is to all the sugar and dance parties we can handle today! Heaven help me 😉
And then there's this guy. Who has been killing it in the dad department since 2006. These four, soon to be five, are so lucky to have him and watching him be a dad is by far the best thing I could have ever asked for. Happy Father's Day, big guy! You are our whole world and then some 😘
