New York City, 2017. It was our second anniversary and I wanted to start an annual tradition of having professional photos taken. We had a little secret we had only shared with family and a few close friends, we were expecting! We talked about how scary it was to think of raising a child. We had already started praying God would help us be good parents to our little one! It's such a strange thing to transition from just the two of you to suddenly being responsible for another human being. For some reason I was totally convinced we were having a girl, even though we were only a few weeks along and had no way to confirm my suspicions. Our top name for a girl was Evelyn Josephine "Evie JoJo". Evelyn because we just loved that name, and Josephine after my great-grandmother whose birthday was in July, the same month our little baby was due. ⠀
But, we won't get to meet Evie JoJo on this side of heaven because we had a miscarriage three short weeks after this photo was taken. I like to look at these anniversary pictures as Evie JoJo's maternity portraits. These are the only pictures we have with her. That makes these photos so much more special. ⠀
When we lost our baby, I was overwhelmed by how much peace God gave me. I felt like God gave me so many signs on the day it happened that he was there. And somehow, that was enough.⠀
I am posting this today because I have been blessed and encouraged by the women who shared openly that they had a miscarriage. It's not something people normally talk about, but I think it helps to know you are not alone. I'm also sharing it because today was our due date, 7/15/2018, and I did not want to let the day go by without publicly acknowledging the life of our little Evie JoJo. Richie and I are convinced that she will come running up to us when we are in heaven one day and that she is the happiest she could ever be! We are so thankful for that.⠀
A Store Manager for our Gastown store 😊 the position is full time with the possibility of being more part time, salaries, with benefits 👍🏻 Job posting link is in our bio!

Where are all of my Type A personalities at? 👋🏻 I am in love with this storage idea for my student’s supplies that I got from @sandersinsecond. I am a little bit of a perfectionist and a clean freak, so I’m very excited for each student to have their own drawer for all of their supplies. This will be especially helpful since I am also implementing flex seating! Who else gets excited over something as simple as storage? 😅 #teachersofinstagram#iteachk#iteachtoo#teacherlife#target#targetteachers

Hi! My name is Judit Just, I’m 32 years old, I'm from Barcelona but I've been living in Asheville for almost 5 years, where I create all these woven tapestries. I wanna talk about something y’all been asking me a lot through the Instagram feature “ASK ME A QUESTION”: how I started weaving.
Back in Spain I studied Fashion, then Sculpture and also Textile Art, but I learned weaving because of my mom. I remember her learning how to weave while she would wait for me during my piano classes when I was little. Later on, she taught me all the weaving skills and I did my first tapestry when I was 11 years old: a quirky little elephant standing on a fuzzy field of flowers. It started as just a hobby, I never got any real formal education on how to do them and I never thought it would be what I wanted to do with my life. But I started to notice that I brought it with me through my studying days, and I started to incorporate it into projects in fashion school, and then in sculpture, and it was what pushed me to study textile arts where I learnt how to weave on different harness looms. When I was finishing school and doing my textile arts final project, we made the decision to move to the US and I started to sell some homework on my shop online. I really pushed myself to sell whatever I could before moving, weaving swatches, embroidered jewelry or some experimental tapestries. It just so happened that some people would ask me for variations of previous pieces that I sold and then I began to get more inquiries. This is when I realize that I could do this full time in the States.
After some time and perseverance, it suddenly exploded just at the beginning of this “weaving wave” that’s been going on for the last years. I often think that it worked for me because I was there at the appropriate time and how all these elements combined helped me arrive Here. Without internet I couldn’t be doing what I’m doing or I couldn’t be making a living out of it. Thank you so much for all your love and for keeping my hands busy! So grateful you lovely followers! 📸: by the awesome @nocik

Seems like a great quote to start a Sunday. Image taken of @ellenmariebennett for the new @hedleyandbennett apron catalog, out now, and about 95% shot by moi as well 😍✨
I don’t always style my coat rack, but when I do, it’s with chocolate lace + garden roses on their way to a fun shoot.
We started our day with a quick dance in the down pour (see in stories!) in preparation for the World Cup final. Are you watching?! Sad to see it end! Cheers to soccer Sundays.
Маленькое открытие большого города.
А вы когда-нибудь заглядывали в душу любимых мест? Нет?
Тогда смотрите какую душу Одессы (так многие называют это местечко в Сети) прячет улица Покровка 😱
Знакомьтесь, это Галерейный многоквартирный жилой дом 🙈
Про него особо не пишут и не говорят, этот дом не популярный, но каждый найдёт в нем частичку красоты.
Вот история об этом доме, который вы постоянно проходите мимо:
«Галерейный многоквартирный жилой дом, характерный элемент жилой застройки Москвы 2-й пол. XIX в. Состоит по крайней мере из четырёх домов. В 1857 году потомственный почетный гражданин Василий Алексеевич Сиротинин купил обширное владение на Покровке. Одно здание, относящееся к первой половине XIX века, он надстроил третьим этажом с мезонином, а в 1860-е пристроил к нему трехэтажный жилой дом с лавками».
Ну, а мы с @mashkechaika можем посоветовать вам лишь одно: не бойтесь заглядывать в душу улиц, потому что иначе ты никогда не узнаешь, какая красота там скрывается! #woowместо
Followed some sketchy directions and did some tricky rock scrambling to get to this amazing cave near our house just in time for sunset last night (the #IGvsIRL of this story is that I have a huge bruise on my leg from basically being attacked by a shrub on the way back)
