Today, is Girl Boss Tuesday... __ Raise your hand if you don't like to rest or if it's hard for you to take time to rest? __ I (Anni) resist rest ALOT! Whereas Dana craves rest. I could work until my eyeballs want to fall out. Whereas Dana is so good at recognizing when she needs a break. __ The problem was that rest - actual good, solid rest - felt like I was being lazy. Why was I sitting on the couch when I could be doing more work? Anyone else ever felt that way? __ But here's the thing, exhaustion is REAL. Like hella real. And man, are we currently feeling it... __ What I had to do was recognize what ACTUAL rest was and pursue what made me feel recharged and alive... __ We've gotten lost in this culture of I'll just sleep when I'm dead or just hustle more!. But when you do that, is the work you're producing any good? Are you feeling alive? Are you taking care of your family well? __ With rest, your impact will be 100x greater than it will if all you're focused on is doing more instead of just being... Realizing no one needs you to be superwoman...they just need YOU. __ Rest going to be different for everyone. What makes you feel rested won't work for other people...don't ever feel like it has to look the same for it to count... __ Share one thing you can do that makes you feel rested! For Anni it's reading and spending time outside. For Dana it's spending time alone and listening to podcasts. __ 📸 by the fabulous duo of @caitlintphoto & @emma_ctphoto
That we just got married smile is our favorite! __ Ray & Kaila wanted a grand entranceway to walk through for their ceremony and to use for their family portraits after... __ Kaila had a beautiful vision of what she wanted so we custom designed a Yellow French Door Entranceway with our Napa Valley Wine Barrels as the perfect anchors for her gorgeous flowers from @thefarmersdaughterflowers __ Double tap if you love a good entrance way! We adore when clients have a unique vision for their special day ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ __ Photo: @hotmetalstudio Calligraphy: @woodandgrace Florist: @thefarmersdaughterflowers Hair/Makeup: @hannahconardbeauty
5 Things You’d Never Guess About Us 👋🏻 1. Anni and I are actually 9 years apart in age! But we swear we meet in the middle at 27..we met when I was a senior in high school, didn't really get to know each other until 4 years later and we've been besties ever since! 2. We traveled to Europe last year for this FIRST time going to Switzerland, Germany and Italy...we constantly look back at our pictures because it was one of the best experiences we've ever had. And now? We're planning to head to Iceland very soon! 3. Dana played D-2 soccer as a WALK ON goalie - ya, I think she's a beast too 💪 She played field since she was 3 and decided to purse being a goalie when she went to college. Then went on to coach high school soccer for 7 years! 4. We both came from very entrepreneurial families and we can't imagine doing anything else. Even though Dana loves teaching, I'm convincing her to join the dark side with me so I can bug her every day 😂 5. We do a LOT of things but we have a few plans on the horizon that we absolutely can't wait to start revealing. It's so fun to see our business evolve and grow beyond our wildest dreams! 💃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alright, that’s it! Tell us ONE thing we’d never be able to guess about you just from glancing at your profile! Think of it as a virtual get to know you coffee date! READY? GO!👇🏼
