Summer is exhilarating and fast paced and chaotic with travel and wedding season and I absolutely love it. And then comes Autumn...*deep sigh* ohhh how I love the fall. Life is a little more simple and routine these days, and I’m really not mad about it. Cheers to the changing season and slowing down for a bit...
Just sipping coffee and filling squares and thinking about how nice it would be to go back to bed...how do y’all stay motivated to wake up early during these chilly and dark months?! I was in a pretty good routine of working out a getting shit done before work and I’m losing motivation the colder it gets outside. Why? What’s your morning routine?? I need tips/inspiration!
I love the simple joys in life. But I often get caught up in the nitty gritty of life and relationships and forget to take a moment for gratitude and to reflect on the goodness. I feel deeply and desire deep connection. I want to understand others and I over analyze just about everything. There is something to be said though, about seeing and appreciating the simple joys in life EVEN when there is conflict/struggle/unanswered questions...and all you want to do is solve all of the problems of the world. These, especially, are the moments I desperately need to stop, and give thanks. Anybody else? What are some simple joys in your life that cause you to stop and smile? This morning, it was as simple as the early morning light hitting the steam from my hot cup of coffee that caused me to take a minute...breathe...and remember the goodness.
October is always always my favorite month, but this month has already been extra special. My besties @kandicebenya got engaged to the man of her dreams last week, and @danielleieremie had her baby girl! Did you see my stories? She is the most presh thing and has stolen all of our hearts (especially Eli’s). Also my sis in Austin @ashnoelwilde is having her baby girl any day now 😭. We are just celebrating life with our loved ones near and far. It’s tough being so far away from family sometimes...we have family in Minneapolis, Chicago, and Austin! Is anyone else a transplant to WA? Where do your families live??
Good morning! Ahh, It’s a brand new month and it feels so good. The fall weather is finally sticking around, our yard is already covered in fallen leaves, and cozy vibes are strong in this house. I’m kicking the month off by starting a 31 day nutrition and fitness challenge and I’m so determined to stick to it 😬I have NEVER seen a challenge all the way through...well, I did the “whole15” a couple of times. Does that count as one whole30? Anyway, I’ve got my fridge full of goodness and my meals have been prepped for the week and I’ve already crushed my morning workout before 7:30. 💪🏽 My number one goal/intention this month is to take back my mornings. To wake up early enough to spend quiet time praying, reading, journaling....going for a walk or just sipping coffee in silence before the day begins. I am such a better wife/friend/stranger when I take time to pray and reflect and give thanks for all the good in my life. What are some goals you have this month? Please share!
Celebrating because it’s almost the weekend 🙌🏼 You guys, I ACTUALLY found workout buddies for the 31 day Fall challenge. This means I have to get my ass in shape and commit.😬 Do you enjoy nutrition and fitness challenges, or do they make you want to cry??
In other news, I will have some lovely wrapped bouquets at Satori tomorrow! I’ll be there from 10-7, so come say hi and bring home some flowers!!
Happy Tuesday my friends! Been enjoying this absolutely gorgeous fall day in Tacoma.

The most beautiful Juliet’s and ranunculus in my favorite floral work shop to date...swipe to see the cutest laundry room to ever exist. The pampas grass we picked for our wedding is still on display in that laundry room and it makes me smile every time I see a picture posted of it 🌾

IG has been a wealth of creative inspiration, free learning, networking, and new friendships! I love finding new accounts that inspire me. What IG accounts have you been loving lately?? Tag them in the comments and tell me what you love about them...So I can follow too! Check out my stories to see who I’ve been loving these days!
2018 has been a dream....I had the absolute best clients, did my first out of state weddings, and got to do my OWN wedding in California! I am so excited looking ahead to next season. Now booking 2019 weddings!!!! Email me or DM me with inquiries!
Fun fact that not many people know about me...I am a massage therapist! I graduated from the @aveda Institute Minneapolis and was practicing full time for a few years in MN before I moved out to Washington and discovered my love for floral design. I specialized in pre/post natal and deep tissue massage, but love doing it all. I have always had a passion for health and wellness and this has been my one little “outlet” to bring a little peace and self care to the people in my life. I haven’t advertised this but have continued my practice on the side for fam and friends (Eli is my most faithful client, duh). Our home office (pictured above) doubles as the loveliest little massage studio on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays! Now that life is slowing down with the end of busy wedding season, I thought I would let y’all in on this little secret. 🤫 DM me if you’re looking for a local therapist in a relaxed, cozy home setting ✌🏼
I know y’all are lighting your fall candles and sipping your fav hot bevies this weekend..come grab a pretty wrapped bouquet at @satoriboutique today to complete your cozy kitchen table setup! (We also have flowers available by the stem!) 🌾 But seriously...What’s your fall drink of choice??
It’s getting cozy over here at the Hale household today...this rain is giving me life and for the first time in a long time I have nowhere to be! So two important questions. 1. What should I bake today? Cinnamon rolls? Cookies? Send me your fav recipes! and 2. Any good movie recommendations??? 😊
