Happy Friday! Enjoying this delicious bowl of peach egg oatmeal and coffee after a leg lifting and HIIT workout. My legs feel like jello (actually almost fell down the stairs 😂) and it’s hard to lift things after shoulders yesterday, but I am loving these new workouts and feel so strong! Looking forward to an active recovery day tomorrow and a run on Sunday as I begin training for the Twin Cities 10 Mile!
Working on the first official event blog post for @uncover_culture ! So excited for the opportunity to write, share my experience of small events in the Twin Cities, and connect with inspired souls!
Dm me or @uncover_culture if you have a recurring or upcoming event that you want covered! Blog + photography + community. We’re here for you!
Another CSA haul ♡
p.s. sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and I was ecstatic to have one in my basket this week ☺️🌻
I’ve been thinking about the changing seasons a lot lately in regards to appreciation. For a long time, I’ve wanted to live somewhere that is warm year round (I’m okay with fluctuating weather, but severe Midwest winters are getting hard for me.)
It’s got me thinking: would I appreciate the warm summer months as much if I was somewhere that I had them year round? 🌞 Or perhaps on the flip side, would I just be a happier, more satisfied person year round because I get to live in the beauty and abundance of a warmer climate?
Tell me your thoughts on seasons and appreciation! 🌍Also: if you could live anywhere, where do you think you’d choose? 🤗
You know...just checking out something on the ground😂. I’m not really good at posing if you haven’t figured that out yet!
Today is rainy & gloomy, so I will be curled up on the couch most of the day in my comfy clothes. Loving the softness of our new Gena joggers & Penny tee. Definite must haves🙌🏼. #couchtownstyle

Here are a few things you might have not known about me! 🤗
1️⃣ I’ve been in real estate for 10+ years... My first experience in renovating was a foreclosure in 2011 on a golf course. We were living in the basement (only running water was from the bathroom🤣) with two small baby boys as we renovated and redesigned the entire home. That’s when the love of design came into play! .
2️⃣ Started working in new construction 2013 as a project manger and in design. Thats when I decided to obtain my real estate lic.. to help our clients sell their existing homes. ( that’s where I learned the true contractor lingo, from spray foam to geo thermal.. very popular then!) .
3️⃣ My specialty is in dirt.. land transactions & development. From rezoning to parcel splits, preliminary site plans to city approvals. Nothing satisfies me more than to start from dirt to new construction of a home or business!! (I despise shopping unless it has to do with fixtures, wood grain, stone, or a Home Depot run!!)
Let’s have a little coffee talk ☕️ For a few weeks now, I’ve been disqualifying myself because I’ve been continually going through something or challenged by the outcome or unwelcome anxiety that came with it and I didn’t feel like I was growing. What?! It’s crazy what our minds can convince us of. I felt shook by a lot of weights of this world and Jesus is slowly starting to show me peace and what it’s like to be well again. My friends, this is what faith in Jesus is all about. When we feel like we have to have it all figured out, we can rest assured knowing He already does. We can be broken and still be used. We can feel weak, and He will always be strong. Reach for that joy He has for you. Get back to the basics. It’s okay to feel lost or flustered or like you won’t do something perfectly. Take a step, He will meet you there and provide more than you could imagine. He promises that!
