Lots of togetherness in store for my boys and I over the next week as we road trip it to Austin! I’m excited to make some fun memories together and explore new places with them! Spontaneity and adventure are what summer is all about, and we are embracing it (chaos and all!) to the fullest! I’ve had an increased awareness lately that we only get 18 short little summers with our children before they are grown(ish), and come what may, I intend to be intentional with them. Does this mean we are all unicorns and rainbows the whole time? Um, NOPE. We get annoyed, we raise our voices, then we say we are sorry, and we move on. But my boys have also said “I love you, mom” and “Thanks for taking us on this trip” more times than I count already. Is it because they are getting way more electronics time than usual? Maybe. But I’d also like to think it’s because we are TOGETHER.
Growing up I always dreamed of living in NYC, but in a totally different way. I thought I would be single, rocking the “designer life”, and own a tiny 300 sq ft apartment ( And love every second). ✨ Fast forward 8 years to reality ( the one hand crafted for me!) In this reality I married my best friend, design for my own brand, and now live in a small town with big dreams! Being in New York this weekend reminded me that you never truly know what’s best for you, but I wouldn’t change a thing 🌈✨ Here’s to many adventures to come✌🏻#copperpaperco @pineandproper #nyc#adventure
Pretty in bubblegum pink ✨🌸💕💫 Funny story: I extensively sought out lavender colored crepe myrtles (for days), found them, we shot in them, then when I was color grading I unintentionally turned them pink and liked it 🤷🏻♀️👌🏼✨ model @brianaalvarezz_ styled by yours truly dress from @shophalfawake 💕
