Why I'm Done Pursuing Balance

Why I'm Done Pursuing Balance

Helllooooooo!!!

It's hard to believe that the summer solstice came and went, isn't it? That's because life seems to fly by for all of us.  I was thinking about it... I have dedicated my entire life to intentional living, wellness, and pursuing happy.  Not only is it the front and center of my personal life, but my entire brand (which is really just an extension of my identity) focuses on this. So, achieving balance which is "essential" for feeling good physically and mentally, should be somewhat easy for me, right?

It's not.

An Unplanned Break

An Unplanned Break

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend.  I was busy shooting for a really rad lifestyle brand (can't wait to share with you!), as well as a ton of time with my husband and Bodie, and of course, the beach.  Today is shaping up to be a bit of a catch up day, which feels really good.  My trip to NY was delayed by a week due to my dad's surgery (he just had his second surgery for a subdural hematoma).  He is on complete rest so he needs a very quiet week.

Since I rescheduled my flight last minute, it has left me with a week of zero appointments or plans.

June Q+A

June Q+A

Hey friends,

Today I am answering some of the questions that were recently submitted to me on Instagram. I'm going to be doing these monthly or bimonthly (depending on the kind and amount of questions I receive).  Please send me your questions either in the comments or via email for next month.  Ask me about life, yoga, health, wellness, beach life, photography, or anything else!  

Here we go...


A Post with No Ending or Point

Hey friends!

This post is long overdue, and a fair warning, may be a little over the place.  I hate to say that I've been "too busy" to blog, but I truly have been too busy.  I've been pulled in a million different directions between motherhood and business.  In addition, we took a vacation last month, and then my dad ended up in the hospital.  I tried to keep everyone updated on Instagram, and appreciate all of the love and prayers we received.

The 30A Life Cover + Weekend Thoughts

Hey friends!  Happy Friday!

I am so excited to share that my photo (and Ellie the Bug) is on the cover of the latest issue of The 30A Life!  You can see the issue here online or pick up a copy around the 30A area.  I've been wanting to share this with you all since I first saw the cover a few days ago.  It's really a cool feeling as I watch where my photography takes me... Where will I be this time next year?

Social Media Authenticity Police

Social Media Authenticity Police

Has anyone else noticed the barrage of people questioning and scrutinizing other people's authenticity?

The "I am the real deal, and they are not" message seems to be everywhere I look on social media these days... which is basically a microcosm of real life.  There just seems to be so much judgement about who is being real and who isn't.  I find the whole thing off putting, negative, and ironically unauthentic!

It's too easy to point fingers...
