a cloudy day on the water is better than a cloudy day inside 🌥🌥
happiest place ✌🏼🌊
even though you're a million miles away, when you hear born in the USA, you relive those glory days so long ago...funny how a melody sounds like a memory, like a soundtrack to a july saturday night. ❤
and maybe also some flamingo string lights, but that's a given. also still sob every time I hear this song, it's totally fine.
kinda still feel like a farmer when I wear these but yolo ✌🏼
big fans of summer ✌🏼☀️
this week is kiiiind of kicking my butt, so I tried to get it together today and take jack to church. he made it suuuper clear (to me and probs everyone in a 100 mile radius of the nursery 🙈) that he doesn't actually like going to church, thank you very much. but on the bright side (literally) the rain stopped, so if you need me I'll be drinking in all the cold brew + sunshine, because summer. ☀️
few things make me feel like I can take on the world like bright pink lipstick does (and also coffee but you already knew that).
memory is a strange thing. it does not work like I thought it did. we are so bound by time, by its order...but now I'm not so sure I believe in beginnings and endings. there are days that define your story beyond your life. GUYS. I watched Arrival this weekend and it is still messing with my brain. feels on feels on feels and my new favorite quote.
margarita monday, amiright? just kidding, I'm chugging coffee and drowning in my to-so list and chasing a toddler who found a sharpie and has learned how to run from me (WHY DO THEY HAVE TO LEARN THIS?!). but a girl can dream. happy monday!
life is short, dress up and celebrate it often 👗 the universe is a really big place, but somehow this treasure ended up two streets over from me. thanks for always being my date, couldn't have done this year without you ❤
my littlest beach babe ❤
almost captioned this monday vibes so I think that tells you everything about this thursday that you need to know. coffee, please ☕️☕️☕️
I love places that make you realize how tiny you and your problems are.
best weekend with my best guy.
11 years ago, we loaded up and moved to Florida to start a church. And by we, I mean my parents, my little brother, and me. Depending on who you are, that either sounds exciting or nightmarish. It's been a bit of both, to be honest. The last 11 years have been so good and so bad. I've watched both miracles and heartbreak happen, walked through hellish seasons and the most joyful seasons. I've met amazing people and watched friends I thought would be in my life forever turn into strangers who not-so-quietly whisper hateful things. It has been full of incredible experiences, incredible loneliness, incredible I-can't-believe-I-got-to-be-a-part-of-this moments. I have watched the desire to just love, simply love people for who they are turn into hope for so many. I've had church with four people and church with hundreds. In our living room, in hotels, in middle school cafeterias. Tomorrow, somewhere around a thousand people will show up to hear my dad speak about hope. They might not know that this started with four terrified family members in a living room, but I will never forget. I have learned so much-about myself, about church, about people. I'll say this: The most beautiful things start with someone(s) deciding to just go for it. If there's a dream in your heart, chase it. It might look nothing like you expected, but it'll be one heck of a ride. Happy 11 years, Coastline. It has been the privilege of my lifetime.
keep the wild in you ✌🏼
sunshine & best friends & iced coffee & summer forever.
palm trees are my love language ❤🌴
he doesn't know vacation is over and I am certainly not going to tell him. ☀️
my favorite little sushi date 💕 fun fact: jack went to his first sushi happy hour when he was 13 days old and I fully believe things like that are the reason why he can hang just about anywhere now. having a baby doesn't mean you're sentenced to house arrest, it can actually be pretty fun ✌🏼
live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry. -jack kerouac, who I low-key think I accidentally named my son after 🤷🏼♀️
why does the Tuesday after a long weekend last for approximately 2,832 hours? it did, so naturally I am trying to figure out how to go back on vacation while diving into my two-week-old inbox. send coffee. ☕️☕️☕️
big, big fans of summer. ☀️
may your sunday be long and your mimosa be strong ✌🏼
my favorite lunch date ever (even if he looks at the camera approximately 1 out of every 28738192737 times)
palm trees & 82 degrees: a love letter to summer.
my favorite part of living in florida is that even when you have to go back to real life, it kind of still feels like you're on vacation...because, florida. ☀️
we ❤the ocean 🌊 this trip has made me want to take jack exploring all over. me and you forever, little bub ❤
there's no beach like home 🌊
we were the biggest fans of vacation ❤
if you were wondering what my love language is, it's this (and the giant plate of nachos I am about to eat).
I hope I'm always as happy to see the ocean as little bub is. ❤
florida, I love you.
the two best friends there ever were.
obsessed with him and also fried okra.
I see you, summer.
give me allllll the summer dresses & pink lipstick & sunshine & saturdays. ☀️
when you're trying really hard to be a mermaid, but florida is trying really hard to have winter.
back to the land of palm trees & 80 degrees. also back to needing approximately 97 cups of coffee because, monday. ☕️
when your girl is getting married, you hop a plane and go look at pretty dresses ✈️
we need to talk about his side-eye. he is the absolute saltiest...I wonder who he gets that from 🤔
a rare sighting of pizza in her natural habitat.
I think my calling in life is to sit under palm trees and look at the water and work on my tan. I'm like, suuuuper good at it.
sadness is easy because it's surrender. I say, make time to dance with one hand waving free. -claire colburn, my favorite fictional character ever from the best movie there has ever ever been. (Elizabethtown, if I needed to clarify for you)
^what 99.7% of pictures I try to take with jack end up looking like. but this picture sums up so much of what life is right now: blurry and messy and we're usually laughing and all hands on deck and it takes a freaking village and I couldn't love it more. ❤
felicia (I had to look back through instagram to remember what I named her last summer) is back from her winter vacation in the attic, so I think it's safe to say it's officially summer ☀️
me: omg, love you so much, so obsessed with you, etc, etc. jack: mhmm yeah sure okay but where's this ice cream I was promised?
summer is here to stay and jack is pretty happy about it.
this is my new cooler and I am 100% obsessed with it. also it fits approximately 87 lacroixs, so you could say it's a winner.
cheers to 25! ps: only the best friends act as stand in husbands/dads when the real one has to work. thanks for spending my birthday with me, @sunderwood21. one of the best things 24 brought me was you ❤
every time I set foot in the kate spade store, I feel like I'm one step closer to my goal of being a mermaid. exhibit A ⬆️
I mean....Florida forever ☀️
brunch is my love language. 🥞🥓🥂
I feel like every single day this week has been a monday, so I'm reeeeeal happy to see friday show her pretty little face today ☀️
I spend approximately 90 percent of my time trying to figure out a way to go spend the day by the water. (I spend the other 10 thinking about chick-fil-a)
always planning a vacation, always trying to sneak my dog everywhere with me. ☀️🏝🦊
so (so so so) obsessed with him. and also with this dress.
the gang's all here 🏝🍩🍹☀️
