Give me two paws up if your pupper is obsessed with puddles. 🐾 — I took this in Hays, Kansas (which just might be the friendliest little town I’ve ever been to). — I was exhausted from driving 6 hours from Denver the day before, and got to my Airbnb later than expected. It had one of those fall-scented candle smells, even though nothing was burning and my host was out of town. — Snuggling up into bed, I heard the distinctive sound of dog teeth testing something. Sure enough, Bella had found a decorative ROCK and was offering it to me for a game of fetch.🤦🏽♀️ — I kindly declined her I’ll-timed request and promised her a dog park in the morning. — I knocked out a podcast interview with @lemonandthesea (she was interviewing me), packed up my @away because I’m #basic like that, and found a cute local coffee shop to try a latte at. — Have you ever been to a local coffee shop in a new town and stuck out like a sore thumb? That was me- fresh off the mountains in a t-shirt, while everyone else was bundled up in Jayhawks sweatshirts and mittens 😬 — I got to the front of @breathecoffeehouse, nervously ordered something I hoped they had (an almond milk latte) and went to pull my wallet out. Uh-oh... no wallet... — The cashier could clearly see my panicked expression as I asked him to hold my order— I had to go check my car to see if my wallet was there. — He laughed and said, “don’t worry, it’s on us this morning.” — “But I’m not from here— I won’t have a chance to come back and make up for it later.” — “Don’t worry about it. Look, I’ve already got it started for you.”😭 — It was a great dang latte. And just around the corner was a HUGE dog park. I stayed and sipped my coffee until it was gone, all while launching balls for Bella. — When it was almost time to leave, I filled up a big water bowl with some leftover water we had in our ski box that we’d collected from a spring in Moab that spurts out right next to the Colorado River. — I don’t know why I even bothered, because before I even finished I turned around to see this. 🤷🏻♀️
It’s a sad day friends. For long time listeners of @reinaandcompany and I’s podcast, @mycreativeempire, you saw that our last episode was published this morning. — Reina and I had a huge falling out and OMG JUST KIDDING. I can’t even bc some people won’t read and that’s all they’ll see. No, I love Reina to bits and pieces and feel so grateful we got to work so closely together for 2.5 years. — It’s been so fun to hear your stories about how we helped you kick off your business, and about your favorite guests. — I am so grateful we could serve you all so well for so long, and that so many of you could find such a great benefit from the free content we delivered twice a week, every week, for nearly three years. The show isn’t going anywhere for at least a year, so you have some time to catch up and keep listening 💛 — 📷 by @lunabearstudios at @heather_crabtree’s Savvy Experience in 2016
Raise your hand if you’ve ever braced for the worst and peeped your eyes open only to realize you could breathe a sigh of relief💃🏾 — Last weekend I attended my first ever party in LA hosted by the incredible @cathy.heller. As @nicolemiyuki and I were driving over, I was praying I wouldn’t catch foot in mouth disease, be too quiet or worst of all... show up with boogers in my nose (something I’ve struggled with my whole life). — I hoped the people I met wouldn’t make me feel too small or inadequate. That they wouldn’t stand above me too tall. That I didn’t f up my outfit too bad (I’m a notoriously bad dresser— I go with one piece options and hide behind hair for this reason 😂) — As I walked in, Cathy warmly greeted me. She remembered more about me than I do about my own story most days🏋🏻♀️ And it only got better from there. 🙌🏼 — Everyone I met, whether they were verified, TV famous or mega impactful, was so kind and not in that annoying patronizing kind of way (you know what I’m talking about!) — The unofficial theme of the evening seemed to be that it’s time to pour back into others with our offerings- to build a real community and not just a bunch of thumbs up or followers. Cathy shared her struggle with feeling invisible growing up, and how she hopes her podcast, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, will help others see what’s possible. — Congratulations on your first 100 episodes Cathy! But more than anything, congratulations on finding the secret sauce to a community that cares👌🏼
