Some days, all you need is a photo session in Minneapolis with your husband and friends-turned-family - and to end the day with a giant pizza! 😊 The amazing @laurenkirkbride captured our @withgraceandgold family so, so beautifully! . For me, sabbatical has been bittersweet. Along the way, I've realized I was experiencing major burnout before sabbatical began, that I needed to rediscover my passion for, well, everything 🙈 - and that we, as people, aren't designed to navigate these tough seasons in life alone. . I've learned to embrace the messy and imperfect, to give myself more grace, and to rest when it's needed. In the meanwhile, I can't wait to pop our @withgraceandgold family photos onto our website! ❤️ I'm so excited for us to begin a fresh new season, well-rested!
On my agenda this week: Fix up our wilting garden! After a beetle incident (#wisconsinlife 😜) our basil died - and our flowers wilted! Do you have any tips for flowers and herbs to plant later in summer? Please let me know! 🌿
It's so warm outside today ☀️ I know I dream about these hot summer days all winter long - but it sure is toasty! P.S. Progress on our popcorn ceiling has resulted in me calling area businesses to receive a quote 🙈 Popcorn ceiling removal is not for the faint of heart!
Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good. 🌿
It's been a full day of housework! 😅 It turns out, preparing to renovate our condo is no easy task! . Today, I picked up a new desk, continued moving odds and ends to our basement, and measured every baseboard in our condo. We've been doing a LOT of prep work, and I'm so hopeful it'll all pay off! .
