Stop your scroll ✋🏼 As you prepare to rest your head tonight, you need to remember this. Life is filled with curveballs, highs, lows, mountains and valleys, but you can handle all of that! I'm reminded of all of this with each passing day but beyond the hardship and junk life throws at us, there is also so much good, so many miracles unfolding if we open our eyes to see them. If the path was paved and well lit for you, it probably wouldn't lead to anywhere worthwhile. As you enter this new week, remember that life is tough but you are you. You've got this, sweet friend. Tag three people below to encourage them! The world needs more community, more positivity, and more reminders that we've got this! That all starts with YOU! 👇🏼🙋🏼💐
Something tells me that you might stop when you see this. 🚦Maybe it's because there aren't a lot of size 10/12 girls standing in their bathing suits on Instagram but maybe I can help to change that. We complain that women of all shapes and sizes aren't represented in the media but we do little to impact that. We want to see things that make us feel more human, like cellulite, pimples, wrinkles and varicose veins but we are the first to photoshop them off us. I'm not brave because I'm sharing my body here, I'm brave because I believe that we have to stop waiting for people to give us permission. You want change? Be it. This is me. Real, not retouched. I believe I can make a difference, do you? Thank you @aerie for leading the way and making swimsuits for all shapes and sizes! Double tap if you agree that real > perfection and the world is starving and waiting for more real to come. Psssst.... it starts with you. 🙋🏼🌴👙#aeriereal
We pulled out the couch at our @airbnb and snuggled up and watched Moana together while the rain came down in Austin! This trip has been so refreshing, so restfilled, and so good for us. Allllll the aloha vibes and now we're just missing @thekutchercondo and waiting until our next trip to Maui! Double tap if you wish you were in Hawaii today (note to you: come stay with us at The Kutcher Condo, link in profile!) 🙌🏻🙋🏼🌴 Print framed by: @framebridge
Hi, I'm Jenna and I believe in unicorns. JK, here's me floating on a unicorn in my swim suit. The best part? For the last 3 months I've hid my body.... It's gone through a lot of change. I carried a baby, lost a baby, and I simply felt like a stranger in this sized 12 shell. It'd be easy to caption this Just another dreamy day in Austin which would be true, but that's only half of the story... That's what social media is. If you're comparing yourself to strangers on the internet, remember that these snapshots aren't the whole story. I am on this journey, facing another miscarriage, filled with hope and fear, shame and body consciousness, and yet I'm still here, alive, happy, showing up, and seeking answers. This story is mine and I need to be in it, here I am so that I never forget this season of life, even though some days are really hard and some days are perfectly sunny. Enough about me, tell me about you. How did you end up here and why did you stay? 🙌🏻🙋🏼🥂Swimsuit: @aerie Hat: @audreyroloff Sunnies: @toms #aeriereal #fridayintroductions
Yesterday held road trip to Waco adventures, the silos, oodles of shiplap, a private tour of Chip's office, behind the scenes of Magnolia, delicious food, awesome friends, and too many Fixer Upper references. Today looks like pool side hangs (and naps) and maybe some take out sushi, wine and Netflix tonight. Feels sooooo good to be hanging in the sun with my guy... Double tap if you could spend a day (or week) exploring Magnolia like me? Ahem... or scouring trying to find Joanna Gaines. 😂🤷🏼♀️🥂
I want to look back on the season and see that we kept showing up: in life, in our marriage, in sharing our struggle, in keeping it real, in celebrating the joy. I want to remember this trip that started as running away from our problems but ended with coffee in bed, mezcal margaritas and nights spent spooning. I want to remember this hilarious thing I said to Drew to see his smile lines inch across his face. I am confident we will look back on this season and remember all of the in between moments that it holds, the ups and downs, the highs and lows but above all, we just keep showing up. Double tap if you agree that @kickingitwithkutch is a handsome, handsome man. 🙌🏻 #goals #imarriedup #rememberingbabykutch
I never in a million years thought I would have a studio or an office (beyond my couch or bed!) It wasn't even on my radar but walking to our new space with a iced coffee in my hand and a few snacks in this @annekleinofficial backpack last week, I had to smile at this small town Wisconsin life that continues to evolve, blossom, and grow in ways I could have never imagined. Working above a flower shop (hellllllo, good smells💐) with a sweet group of girlfriends is something I never imagined and yet I'm already wondering what took me so dang long. This homebody needed more community and goodness it feels good to work in a new space that inspires me. I can't wait to show you the full tour soon! 🙋🏼🥂🎧#annecdotes
All checked in to Austin and hanging here for the week with my guy! We picked a random spot on the map to escape to this week so our goal is to find Joanna Gaines tomorrow and to see if everything is really bigger in Texas. When life gets hard, it's okay to run away for a week, sleep in, clear the calendars, and eat lots of BBQ. Remember that!
It's like we wake up everyday forgetting it. Those little whispers tugging at our biggest fears, pointing out insecurities, wanting to isolate us in our aloneness BUT that isn't our story, my friends. Because we can sing it over ourselves just a little louder: I am enough, you are enough, and when we come together to celebrate our enough-ness, we liberate others to do the same. Today I am praying this message over you, willing you to never forget it. You're enough, you're so enough, it's crazy how enough you are. Double tap if you're adopting this as your mantra for today! 🙌🏻♥️🙋🏼Print available in the print shop, link in profile.
I stood in front of the room and said, “My husband wants to be a stay-at-home-dad, so I better get going on making that happen.” While I laughed, there was this deep pit in my stomach, this fear that what it might not be that easy - turns out that fear had it’s own intuition. We lost another baby... Today as I see everyone celebrating their husbands, fathers, and sharing photos of their babies, I am reminded that our reality still isn’t that. While today is filled with so much joy, it also contains so much ache. I yearn to make Drew a dad, I want that more than anything in this world, at still we sit and wait. This Father’s Day was supposed to be different and it’s not, it’s eerily the same as last year and yet there is still so much joy even in in the unknown. God hasn’t let us down yet and we are clinging to so much faith and hope. If today’s scrolling breaks your heart a little or leaves you thinking about your babies in heaven or broken relationships, lost relationships, relationships that never existed, or forced ones, I am here to remind you that you aren't alone, you're deeply loved, and there is more to your story. Happy Father's Day to the best doggie daddy, @kickingitwithkutch! 🙌🏻🐶🙋🏼 Photo by: @chloeannheckman
