back in the studio today! & catching up on days nine — eleven for #invertforjoy : lotus, pike, & lady legs
side note/story, I [still] can’t do lotus on one side bc I rolled my ankle BACK IN EARLY JULY. shit is still testy. but it’s a good story ... I was front row at a @trevorhallmusic show while at @frendlygathering this past summer & was wildly excited to be there with a lot of alcohol in me. Green Mountain State came on (MY state 😉) so of course I was over the top & started jumping up & down, hence the injury. it was a really bad roll that bought me a ticket to the medic tent & all that jazz. they RICE’d it & sent me on my way. but the best part, bc I was injured, I was allowed to use the VIP bathrooms (instead of the over-filled porta potties that were out of toilet paper 😒), VIP meaning the bathrooms that all the musicians use 😬 wrapping this story up, & cutting right to the cool part — I peed with @emoryhall !!! well, she peed ... me? I got stage fright bc it was freaking Emory Hall!!! bahahahaha we walked in to the restroom together & for some reason, blame it on the booze, I was second guessing if it was her or not. so I played it cool when she asked about my injury & just replied with a simple, meek answer. HAD I known that it WAS her I would’ve said something like, I rolled it rocking out to Trevor during Green Mountain State! & she would’ve been like, oh my goodness! really? why don’t you & your husband come up stairs & mingle with all of us you poor thing. we would’ve exchanged contacts & stayed in touch. her and Trev would make it a tradition to stay with us each time they came back to Vermont. we’d give Christmas cards & become each other’s guardians for the other’s kids, the whole nine ... but instead, I second guessed myself, didn’t engage, got stage fright on the toilet, & that’s the story I have to tell. at least I can say I talked with her a little, & that she was in the stall next to me. oh, life’s regrets ... 🙃

Let’s talk about Illuminator! Adding a touch of glow on the right places on your face takes your look to another level. Yes.. you could go nuts and look like a disco ball... 😏 but the right Illuminator shade helps your complexion come alive! The new powder Illuminators are So buttery and pigmented. 🤩 You only need a little and you’ll look like you slept 12 hours. #agirlcandream Swipe to see where I applied “Glamazing!” Tip: You can dab it over your lipstick too for extra shimmer! You can find them in my Maskcara link under “Face” and then “Illuminator”. (There’s some Holiday bundles left too!)
Which one do you love?! .
A critique I sometimes hear while showing a home is, “It’s too custom.” While I get making design choices that appeal to the general masses, I’m all for fun, chic choices that just transform a space!

This might not be the best picture of me or Matt BUT this is a great picture of us working together staining this beautiful log cabin house. Our marriage is 100 100! We both work together we are each other best friends! Hours later Matt and I finished the last side of the cabin! Matt and I did a side a day and each side took about 4 to 5 hours to do! I really did like staining the log cabin. It's just a beautiful home! A girl can dream! #marriage#100100#workingtogether#15yearsstrong#staining#logcabin#beautiful ##bestfriendgoals#cabin#agirlcandream
Lately I’ve been having visions of a Lion and encounters with Jesus as a Lion. And then a prophetic word came forth last weekend about me being lionhearted and then the Presence of Jesus filled the room like the Lion. I fell to the floor and wept at the beauty of Jesus, I felt His mane brushing up against my face and I could smell the scent of it. Then I kept seeing this post on Facebook of this women walking side by side with this lioness and it has something revelatory about it... It keeps stirring my spirit and I had this thought, “Someday I want to take photograph with a Lion... like in the flesh.” So.... not even 3 minutes later I skim through my Timehop and this picture of me gazing at the Lion portrait was just sitting right there...
It was actually taken about 5 years go during the summer by one of my favorite prophets and mentors.. and for whatever reason I had revisited it in the same spirit 2 years ago today... and it’s wrecking me..
I know, I know.. not an actual Lion.. but the timing of my “whimsical-wishful-thought”, being completely forgetful that this picture of me existed... and it just shows up to remind me... and maybe reveal to me, that indeed I will take a photo shoot with a Lion some day in the flesh! #agirlcandream
So backtracking to last Sunday.. during church I heard the Lion Roaring and this spontaneous song came out of me & I jotted it down in my notes during worship.. THEN my dear friend Sandi came up to me(not knowing I was singing this song under my breath in my intimate place with the Spirit) and God literally sent her up to hold me against her RED MANE OF HAIR, and she literally ROARED in my ear!!!!! And if I can get a little more out there.... Timehop validated me again with this verse from 5 years ago... and I’m just losing my mind over the kindness and majesty of God.. He yearns and aches to speak to us. In faint whispers and murmurs, or in a fierce, reverberating ROAR! He is constantly speaking & revealing how close He is to each of us.... His promises are true. He is faithful and He fulfills everything He ever shares before its time.. no matter how impossible it looks. Nothing is too big for Him. THERE IS SO MUCH HOPE!
The 3 best things a woman can give herself: the freedom of options, the knowledge that she actually has nothing to fear, and a well-designed accessory... 😉🐍 (If #serpenti is even better... 🤣 #agirlcandream ). #guesswhichichose
