Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the Italian Master, is a constant source of inspiration for me. I am amazed at how he was able to capture so much emotion and movement in marble. My favorite piece of his is the Rape of Proserpina. Believe it or not, I try to incorporate a lot of the same principles in my black and white photography using clothing and arms. I even go to Rome every few years to keep learning! Sometimes I get told by my clients that my photo artwork reminds them of Italian sculptures -- BINGO! Who is your biggest source of inspiration? Pop it in the comments below - I'd love to learn about your muse!

Did you know I’m running a discount on year in the life sessions until the end of the year? The BIGGEST discount I’ll be offering for these for a very very very long time (I never say never, but at this moment I don’t plan on offering a discount on these at all next year. So it’s kind of a big deal). Slide into the DMs or email for more info ✨

I miss seeing my feet. It’s insane to think less than four weeks and our little one will be here! My plan this weekend is to finalize our plans for Christmas and the birth and do a super clean over the weekend. #sofun

Last year Leesi ate the ornament I bought for Jude. Yes, the first ornament to start the tradition of giving him an ornament every year, she ate it. On Christmas Eve. I cried. I think I screamed. It’s a blur 😂😂 So, naturally this year I bought him two to make up for not actually getting him one last year. This is one of them and it is the sweetest ornament I think I have ever seen 😍🎄❤️

Well it’s been a week. Like one of those where did the time go but when will it end weeks 😫 I’m not sure next week will be any calmer but praying the stress level is much lower. Christmas shopping is just about finished which I think will take a lot of the stress out of the equation. At least it’s finally the weekend right 🤷🏻‍♀️ I was able snag a quick OOTD the other day and had a special guest hop in the photo with me 🐶 .

I’ve always wanted this space of mine to be a journal of sorts. A place I can look back on and remember all the things. I told myself if I was going to share our life and our story on such a public platform, I wanted to do it authentically and with some transparency. Because really, life isn’t all butterflies and rainbows...and that’s what makes it beautiful. ⠀
⠀
Yesterday was a hard day. {deep breath} ⠀
⠀
I’ve struggled with anxiety most of my adult life. Well, honestly, I’ve struggled with anxiety most of my life, I just didn’t know what it was until adulthood. And it wasn’t until about 14 years ago that I realized how crippling and debilitating anxiety and panic attacks can be. Two years ago, years and years of high stress caught up with me and the panic attacks started taking over.⠀
⠀
Between medication, my oils, and the love and peace of Jesus, I’ve got a good handle on this crap...most days. Yesterday wasn’t one of those days. ⠀
⠀
I look at this picture and see the anxiety all over my face. My eyes are heavy, my smile is forced, and I just know what’s it’s doing to the rest of my body.⠀
⠀
I debated sharing this post because it’s vulnerable and hard and it isn’t the pretty side of life. But I know, I KNOW, I’m not alone in this struggle so I’m posting it in hopes it can be an encouragement to someone else who may also have those hard days. ⠀

Design is in the details -- decadent details like a sculpted headboard, turned weathered legs, and velvet upholstery. I'm no historian, but I am SURE that whoever first coined the term "this is where the magic happens" had this bed 😉 // tap to shop ✨⠀

Kids were flipping over Picasso (the elf on the shelf at art class). They excitedly told their teacher all about SnowGlobe and Cupcake to which she stared blankly until I filled her in that they were telling her about their elves. If you do Elf on the Shelf, what are the names your kids picked? #cupcakeandsnowglobe

Why haven’t I posted in a while???? Frankly I have been discouraged. It’s hard when things don’t work out the way you plan, when the vision you have still isn’t where you want it to be. Sometimes as I write, I wonder if it even has any value, if anyone is getting anything or if I’m just slapping some pics on here. In thinking about end of the year, sometimes when we haven’t accomplished what we set out to do, we think “forget it, I’ll start again next year, for now I’m just gonna give up.” But others have reminded me that this doesn’t help. The change starts today. You still need to finish the year strong. Still work until the end and not give up. And it’s hard for me to admit that. That I had kind of given up. I felt that I didn’t know what to say anymore or that I needed to find something amazing to do everyday to post about. Sometimes between millions of doctors appointments and working and trying to sleep, I like to stay home and clean my house. I actually love to be in my home and make it beautiful. I like cooking dinner for my family. I like taking naps with Ruby. And I felt that I couldn’t share that. Obviously now, I’m over it and saying I love being a mom and doing “mom things”. And yes hiking and outdoors is LIFE to me, but I, like all women, have many different roles and can’t always spend time on just one. So here is to finishing the year strong on my goals and vision and what I hope to accomplish!!! I’d love to hear from you if you have a goal you are still working on this year!! Please comment!

As always, here are 5 special reasons I’m loving my boys this week:
✨
1.  Justin:  Mom are you awake?  Me: No not yet.  Justin: (lifting my eyelid) Are you awake now?  Me:  Nope not yet.  Justin:  Are you sick, let me check you out? (as he puts his hand on my forehead) You have a fever (as he touches my lip) Okay now you should be better.  He then runs out of my room and says “Nathan I made mom feel better.  I gave her chapstick”.
😊
2.  Nate:  Dad are you working out tonight?  Carl:  No not tonight.  Nate:  Why?  Me:  Because we’re going to Light up the Night.  Nate: Yay we’re gonna light up to the night.
✨
3.  Nate:  Mom, where’s dad going?  Me:  he’s going to network.  Nate:  What, he’s going to break the internet?  Me:  Let me write this down for 5 on Friday.  Nate:  Can you put it on FB, IG and Twitter.  Me:  I’m not on Twitter.  Nate:  Oh, is dad?
✨
4.  Me:  Remember we don’t touch Cliff and Kayla or they’ll lose their powers.  Nate:  I’m not touching them, I’m just looking at how happy they are.
✨
5.  Me:  J eat your food, you’re wasting so much meat.  J:  No it’s not meat, it’s chicken.

I was in project mode all day (check our stories for a peak) and don’t have any new photos or clever captions for ya, so I thought I’d share a recent post I saved from my girl Amanda aka @oursouthernstory ❤️ I love how she used a console to turn the dead space between the sofa and wall into a functional surface, and gave that sliver of wall some love by vertically hanging two frames. This is space planning at its finest! She’s in Georgia, but her home is a cape cod, so it doesn’t surprise me that she caught my eye! (I’m a southerner living in New England, see) So if you like a look that’s equal parts southern farmhouse and  organic modern, definitely give her a follow! #fridayfavefeatures

5 months in and I can’t believe how different this pregnancy already is. Not only is this girl VERY active, but I feel like my aches, pains, sleepless nights, and heartburn came on much stronger and earlier then with Luna. According to my midwife, symptoms tend to be stronger with the second pregnancy, however, it kinda makes up for itself during the delivery because it’s usually faster and easier 🤷🏻‍♀️ Was this true for anyone? #24weeks

It's Friday! We are shocked too! Not much time left to shop for our cute baby and house gifts.  Head to the link in our bio and shop for locally made Chicago gifts that will arrive before Santa does!

That smile ❤️ I'm ashamed by how few mommy and son dates I've had with my boys. We're starting up now because this little guy has had reoccuring anxiety that we're only understanding now. Figuring out the best step forward hasn't been easy BUT I wanted to share this smiling photo as a reminder of the happy moments that appear in the midst of the difficulties.

Social media is often critiqued for being only a highlight reel of people's lives and not the full story. I personally love the highlight reels 😊 cuz our world has more than enough sad news to go around.

Maybe instead of critiquing social media for hiding struggles, see it instead as choosing to share joyful moments despite the challenges. *

That smile ❤️ I'm ashamed by how few mommy and son dates I've had with my boys. We're starting up now because this little guy has had reoccuring anxiety that we're only understanding now. Figuring out the best step forward hasn't been easy BUT I wanted to share this smiling photo as a reminder of the happy moments that appear in the midst of the difficulties. Social media is often critiqued for being only a highlight reel of people's lives and not the full story. I personally love the highlight reels 😊 cuz our world has more than enough sad news to go around. Maybe instead of critiquing social media for hiding struggles, see it instead as choosing to share joyful moments despite the challenges. * * * * #mommyandsonday #toddlermomlife  #realmomlife #thejuggleisreal #theeverymom  #collectmoments #creativelife #mombosslife  #millennialmom #honestmom #mindfulmotherhood #intentionalliving #soulpreneurs #interracialbabies #toddlersofig #momlifebelike #joyfulmama #elskerelskerelsker #kjærlighet #livetsommor

Everything goes by SO dang fast! My babe is 1 month old today!😱
Here are some ‘fun’ facts about my labor I have not yet shared...
1. I thought for sure I’d go early but ended up getting scheduled for an induction @ 41 weeks.
2. I did not make it to my induction. I went into labor 1 hour before my 10 am induction time & even tried to put it off...thankfully Ross just drove me 😂
3. I had her at 10:46
4. If you’re doing the math... yes she came quick and no I was not able to get an epidural 🤨 which... my amazing midwife kept trying to keep my hopes up about but actually was kind of.... lying.
5. My husband, daughter, mom, sister, grandma & nephew were all there & everyone basically missed it she came so fast.
6. When I was in labor & driving to the hospital, Haven sang me songs to get my mind of contractions... it actually worked💜
I’ll be doing a comparison next between my 2 VERY different experiences with my girls.
To be continued...

If you enjoy being blamed for every little thing then parenting might be for you 🤪 I’m hunting for a mitten that was lost on a walk I was no part of, in a location I’m not even sure was travelled, and no one is even sure she had it with her in the first place.  But she was inconsolable at the thought of this poor lost mitten that is somehow MY fault 🤦‍♀️ #naughtykitten

SHAME can go there too.

I'm not usually into posting lyrics but this song hit me hard. What are you fearful of? What are you shameful of? Give it to the Lord and "flush the toilet." Be done. Be free!

I’m LOVING this colour pop matte lipstick💄!!! I think a must wear item of mine is a stain lip stick. At first it had to be a stain so I could kiss my hubby but now it’s gotta be a stain so I can kiss my babe! ⠀

Do you have a favorite lip stain? Please do share? I must try them all!!

Anyone else feel uncertainty when it comes to posting pictures of your babies?? (Or kids?) It feels weird to me to think their whole lives would be documented on the internet, and yet lately I’ve been feeling torn!!
•
Torn because on the flip side you also have somewhere more concrete to look back on memories, but bigger than that I feel torn because throughout our pregnancy and since the babies arrived I have constantly used social media as a resource to seek out other women and moms walking through similar stages and struggles and reading their stories as a way to find comfort and hope.
•
When we found out we were pregnant I started following other moms for fun ideas, and inspiration to fuel my daydreams. When we discovered we were having TWINS my searched changed as I tried to mentally prepare for life with TWO babies! After our 20 week appointment, when we heard hard news and started mentally preparing for hospital bed rest, early delivery, and NICU time I looked for success stories to calm my fears and help me keep my eyes fixed on the light at the end of the road ahead! While in the NICU I spent time reading other stories to make what we were walking through feel more normal and help time pass a little faster while we waited to take our babies home.
•
Now we’re home, and life has started to settle down (as much as being a new mom to twins can...) and I’ve been feeling a little nudge to start sharing a little bit about our story in the hopes of encouraging someone else in the middle of theirs!
•
I’m not sure yet what this will look like, or how much I will feel comfortable sharing but for now I’m committing to lean in to the uncomfortable and hope our story (however it’s shared) can bring a little hope to someone else!

Today is my 35th birthday!⠀
⠀
(Yes, I am that old.)⠀also I imagine this is what I looked like👆🏻
⠀
In this time, I have turned my best friend into my life partner - exposing all of my crazy at the outset, and he still stuck around! 🤪I've had many careers, from ad agencies to liquor slinging to marketing Food Network magazine, to owning my OWN. I've had 2 babies, with one more on the way. I've mentored a sorority at Temple U for a decade (xo @tudeltazeta). I've met some amazing people and have been offered the most wild, engaging opportunities, and have built a mother-f-ing event that inspires and changes lives with my two girls Jen and @Kate.van.horn (dreams come true @thegoodfest). I plan on building many more things. I've somehow maintained a solid BFF relationship with @newagenesting through it ALL (love you!)⠀
⠀
Thank you all for being a part of this adventure. ⠀
⠀
Keep me young.⠀
⠀
Please?⠀

I have to say that participating in #dressember has caused me to fall in love with wearing dresses (among other things of course... more on my blog if you’re interested). I’ve always liked the idea of them, but I never thought they fit practically into my life... but I’ve learned that they can actually be an easy thing to wear with the right layers and if the dress has some substance to it (like this one from the lovely Joanna at @pyneandsmithclothiers ). Plus it’s a great way to make my small wardrobe work in all four seasons. Best of all? I’ve felt a bit like Anne with an E all month.

Our little pickle is officially 8 months old today! This boy loves the outdoors, mango puree, video chats, Jolene, a jolly game of peek-a-boo, baths or as we call it "the spa", and chewing on remote controls. #JackDH041418

We’re all feeling the cabin fever caused by all the rain.
We’re all feeling the cabin fever caused by all the rain.
If we don't take the time to explore our patterns and figure out what's causing them... then those patterns are just gonna keep on happenin' and we'll continue to stay in the same place.
•
But when we really take the time to reflect on what worked and what didn't - that's when real change happens.
•
We talk all about our highlights and our disappointments from 2018 in Episode 64: The good, the bad, and the ugly of our 2018s (and how to steal our process for reviewing your own!)

Sometimes modern art goes waaaaay over my head... 🎨 👩🏻‍🎨
.
I’d typed out a long post on self-care and looking after yourself during the festive season, before I realized that what I wanted to say was this: we’re spending tomorrow getting our Christmas tree (not the important bit of this message, but we’re excited nonetheless) but also picking out a toy for a two year old little boy who needs one. The Salvation Army got a call from someone requesting a gift for their child and they don’t have anything appropriate, so we’re going to remedy that. Teaching the girls that Christmas is about more than just receiving is really important to us as a family, and this has become one of our traditions - although this is the first year where Poppy is properly invested in it. I’m really looking forward to helping the girls pick out something special tomorrow!
.
I’ve seen some other wonderful ways that people are spreading love and cheer, such as through a homemade care package for someone sleeping rough (socks, hat, homemade soup, toiletries, mince pies, coffee money, etc.) care of @gemswholesomekitchen, and the Santa Is A Woman appeal started by @peanut and Baby2Baby which enables you to fill a box with toiletries (+ whatever treats you want to include) before posting it on to a woman in need. I’d like to ask if you’re doing anything for someone less fortunate this Christmas, but the reality is that I don’t know your personal circumstances. If you’re one of those who is needing a bit of help and support I truly help you get it. If you can contribute to making this season easier or more joyful for someone who needs it than I hope you do.
.
*Also, on reflection, it should be pointed out that this post wound up being on self-care anyway, as doing good does you good!

The littlest cutie in the house had a grand time pulling this ribbon out of its packaging which means I’ll be using a lot of white this year. 🤦‍♀️🤣 Ribbon and bows are my favorite part of wrapping. And I don’t even need anything fancy—good ole cheap curling ribbon can add so much to a gift. 💕

Do you do ribbon and bows or keep your 🎁 gifts more basic?

I can’t believe I’m the mama of these three 😍. Life has been crazy and tiring but my heart is so full as I get to watch their sibling dynamic unfold day after day ♥️. Jack is my little helper and is always doting over his baby sis. Max is already roughing up Scottie’s dollies 🙈 lol but you can tell he’s got a soft spot for his little sissy ☺️. Scottie Sue, we are pretty lucky girls to have these wild boys in our lives!

#PampersPartner Theo is growing up so fast and I am always looking for ways to show him how much I love him. I swaddle this cutie with love by spending one on one time with him and finding new ways to make him laugh. I am loving @pampersus Swaddlers with Heart Quilts because they are so soft and the heart quilts help to keep him dry. #swaddledinlove

You guys I never thought I would be so in love with another baby as I was with my first, babygirl Hayden. Totally wrong!! This boy has my heart 110%. He loves looking at the Christmas lights, is starting to try to scoot around and is such a trooper when Hayden is in his business 🎅🏼❤️❤️ Happy Friday!! #babysfirstchristmas#babyboy#loverboy#christmas#merryandbright#sweetheart

#AD I’ve always loved finding more convenient banking especially as a #Millennial. Today I’m here at @rockland_trust new branch in Boston talking all about forming relationships. relationships, great service and the latest in banking technology. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love that they print their debit cards in the branch. Especially if you are as clumsy as me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With things getting to be more techy I love their video teller option. It’s still a teller but also virtual so you still get to see someone to take care of all your needs. Make sure you check them out and enter to win a #charliecard for a year from now till next month. Sign up in the branch. #ForYouFriday⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Walking into the weekend ❄️ We’ve been bundling up and playing outside everyday. It’s COLD but James loves exploring and running around with Nema. I need to invest in a heated parka because this boy could stay outdoors for hours and I am forever frozen. Any ideas? http://liketk.it/2yPxR #liketkit @liketoknow.it #boymom

Listen....you are doing an amazing job momma and if you're rocking motherhood and entrepreneurship let me just say you're basically Wonder Woman :)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Removing the stigma around motherhood and having to constantly "have it all together" or "do it all" needs to come to an end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm so excited to be part of the Whole Mother Level movement with @wholemotherco. Whole Mother Co is a fun give-back mom shop that includes you, the busy mama, in making an impact with your purchases. Your partnership raises money, promotes awareness, and supports the mother-friendly causes you care about.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This week's @freetobepodcast guest @tiffanymidwifery is a co-founder of this movement and has gifted all Free to Be Podcast listeners and Brandmerry Community Members 10% their entire shop!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can't think of a better gift for the holiday season! Head there now, use code FREETOBE and join the movement.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. I'll be rocking mine next year as we travel the States and would love to see other mommas rocking there too.

🌊 ☀️We, at Emory & Olive, think most likely everyone would like to wake up to this view in the morning! The space is made up of lovely, curvilinear lines with a neutral palette. We have beautiful decorative pillows, for yourself or as gifts  that can provide an accent without disrupting your calming neutrals. 🌊

Coming to ya this FriYay looking a lotta bit different!😆 If you didn't already catch it in my stories... my long hair, is long gone. 😬
.
Yep. Did a thing yesterday. Didn't really MEAN to do the thing.... definitely wanted it a bit longer than this. I might have come home afterwards and thrown a ridiculous pitty party funeral for my former long locks, but then I got over myself and I remembered....IT'S JUST HAIR!🙄 And also, I got lots of kind and encouraging words and messages from so many sweet friends, and that goes a long way to make a girl feel better.💕 Doing my best to embrace it the next 2 months, until it grows out and becomes exactly what I envisioned!😂 Until then, I'm saying HELL YES to the new holiday hair!!💁🏼‍♀️😜 #newhairwhodis #shorthairdontcare

I’m so grateful to have been invited to attend a private workshop on developing executive presence this afternoon. I can’t wait to re-process the leadership wisdom shared by Blake Woolsey and incorporate some of the trends Anna Cottrell presented into my office wardrobe✨

NEW POST// Probably a taboo question here: Do you save Christmas cards every year or do you... you know... “discard” them? (Pun fully intended) We did DIY cards this year using @artifactuprising Everyday Prints and I just adore them 😍 Full tutorial on the blog! And feel free to duke it out in the comments about tossing or keeping Christmas cards. #linkinprofile
