“It’s a beard.” // 8:11pm bath because it was a napping day // the same pink tub my dad and his brother bathed in as children // During this bath Declan randomly asked, “who built this house?” and I’m overwhelmed with the history and the future that is within these walls.

draft from a recent project i’m proud of and excited about. as a freelance creative, having a commission that gives you freedom of artistic interpretation is sweeter than a box of kittens and more satisfying than a 12 hour night’s sleep

Getting ready for the weekend and trying to get a little relaxing done. 
This morning I was at my Bootcamp and I saw a girl across the room that had a dumbbell that was probably 5x the weight that I had and was moving 5x faster and I was getting so discouraged in my comparison. 
Then it dawned on me. While I haven’t gotten as far as her (and boy did she rock it!) I have come a long way when I compare myself now to myself 5 months ago! 5 months ago I didn’t have any activity in my life and I ate what I wanted. Present day me just finished whole 30 and has been going to Bootcamp consistently 5 days a week. 
I’m always having to check myself in the comparison game... I’m me and I can’t compare myself to anyone but me! As long as I’m trying to do better and strive for more growth than yesterday, I’m good!

Here’s to the weekend! You go girl! .

I love him so much my heart could explode 🥰 
Motherhood can often times feel like a roller coaster. Some moments you want to snuggle with them and some moments you hide from your kid as they throw a tantrum. Some days you feel like a great teacher to your kid and then on some days you feel like you didn’t teach them enough. Some days you worry if they’re eating enough healthy foods and some days you feel like giving them frozen waffles for lunch.  Some (a lot) of days you count down until bedtime and then after they go to sleep you can’t wait to see their sweet face in the morning. A mothers love is endless no matter how crazy our kids can make us 🙃

I’m starting a lettering challenge! Well I’m going to do a challenge and you’re welcome to join in! #LetterYourBooks
.
I’m planning on lettering all the books I read this year, as my Goodreads goal is 50 books that’s going to be a lot of lettering! I’ve already read 7 books this year so I’m a bit behind but keep an eye on this account for more #LetterYourBooks!
.
You don’t have to letter the books you read this year, you can letter any book titles. Your favourite books, the books you want to read, the books you read in your childhood, your favourite book quote - there are no rules except it’s all about books!
.
Think about what the book’s about and what characters are in it that you could include in the design of your lettering.
.
Join in if you like and share if you can! I’ll share them all!

we should be alone together 
kissing over there in the corner 
where nobody else can see
keeping each other company

One great thing we have in common as sisters, is that we share our love for cold weather and snow! ☃️❄️ cold weather is happy weather as we like to say. 😍

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been almost three years since I decided to step away from my career and start a new journey. I knew I wanted to make a new type of fan apparel for women, but I had absolutely no idea where to start. I interviewed about every factory I could find and finally found someone who was willing to work with me. And, it was terrible. As in the type of terrible that made me wonder if I’d made a big mistake. So I started over. Two more factories, two more terrible experiences. After three failed attempts, I was an inch away from giving up. And then, a very kind woman gave me the name of her manufacturing partner (something very rare in this world). I met the man in this picture and haven’t looked back.  His team has made the vast majority of Stewart Simmons garments and has been an absolute Godsend. The ups and down of having a business (and well, just life) are real. It’s hard. But sometimes, you have to put one foot ahead of the other and know that if you do, the right people can show up at just the right time.

 When clients wear vintage clothing to their shoots, it makes my heart sing. I also need that coat that the littlest cutie is wearing. Totally loving faux fur lately. 
What’s your favorite winter clothing item right now?

SLOW || The warm sun. The cool breeze. The reflections of light on the water.

My Saturday morning stroll along the bay is quickly becoming one of my fave parts of the week. Michael takes Flynn and Archer sleeps as I walk. It’s one of the very few moments I get each week to just be. .

How do you start your weekend?
