Today, I am snuggled up with a green view in front of me. Boys have gone camping. Thinking of picking up my black diary and journalling. I feel like writing today. My heart feels full. Also thinking, why I started to do business. The big corporations, empty promises, where I felt I sat in a glass office with a glass ceiling too. I was a round peg in a square hole. It felt empty. I wanted more. I want to be able to contribute to someone’s life in a more meaningful way. I want to matter. I want my life to matter. • I love how Instagram also adds to that meaning so many times. It’s a privilege to be able to connect with so many wonderful people here and bring a tiny second of beauty for your eyes. This photo is from my solo trip in NZ last year. I found this one as I was digging my old phone. So back to my snuggly blanket. And I have just picked up my ink pen. • What are your plans for the weekend?
Happy weekend everybody! It has been a fairly productive day for a Saturday. We went to the fruit and vege markets, the secondhand clothing market, and I’ve just finishing cleaning my house and it smells amazingly good. Now we are heading to Hamilton to spend some time with family... that always makes us happy. I hope you guys are having fun.
Whether you have followed me for a short or long time, one of the things I love to share about is my creative community! Having a group of like-minded, creative entrepreneur friends is one the most valuable things you could have as an artist and small business owner! I can attest to the countless ways my community has supported and encouraged me in my journey. During our first @creativesocialretreat one of the things we often heard from our retreaters was the lack of a creative community in their area and how it was so amazing to have the opportunity to a part of one! This is one of the reasons why our team created this retreat! We know the importance of uninterrupted time to create and of having a group to connect with. This is why we want to invite you to join us in Breckinridge, CO, June 14-16th to come partake in our 5 amazing workshops and to meet new friends! We have a few spots left and registration will be closing on May 31st. We hope you can join us in Colorado! Also, big thanks to @faith_whittle for taking this really fun photo of our group! #creativesocialretreat
Today was filled with editing, meetings, gallery deliveries, engagement session planning & other office work. We just finished charging the batteries for tomorrow's wedding. Now im relaxing on our deck listening to the frogs. Happy day! #ourmadisonlife
the Daria Morgendorffer to my Jane Lane. about four and a half years ago, i was sitting on the floor outside of “Advanced Speaking and Speech Writing” and i turned to this gal and said “hey, i don’t really know how adults make friends. but, you seem really cool, want to be my friend and hang out?” Thankfully she said “same” and we have been friends ever since. I am so happy to have @yeeitsbribri in my life. Good, bad, annoyed, happy, crazy, or really crazy this woman has seen it all and been a rock solid support. i feel so proud to stand by her as she marries one of the best men (@matthewsprung) I have ever met as they both become #foreversprung
Cali is home because I have been planted here in the soil. I will no longer be a potted plant, so-to-speak. I am naturally a mover and can’t stay still in one place without feeling like I have outgrown my environment, (I have moved around my entire life) so I am making it a point to intentionally be still and see what God does with me here. That’s not to say that I won’t move within Cali. lol I get asked all the time, “Do you see yourself ever moving again (out of state)?” The answer is, only God knows, but I am just happy that I have this new contentment of knowing that I am where I need fo be for now, in this season and for however long. I know He is doing so much work in me right now. I have a tendency to always look to the future, but I have been grounding myself in the present a lot more recently. It feels good to know that everything is as it should be in this moment, and I must look for the lesson(s) through it all. ⠀ -⠀ #hellolovelyliving *word art by me*
On Friday’s daddy is home, and he’s way more fun than mommy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love watching these little ones play with their daddy! He took all three outside this morning while I cleaned up inside! Judah helped him work on some projects around the house with tools!!! And he took Eisley out to run a few errands, just the two of them! Friday’s are family days! #eisleyjane#judahelliot#happyfriday#itstheweekend#funny#livesimple#playallday

Another brilliant capture by @harald25 last month, this one a long exposure of @nick.woolsey and I spinning LED poi near the Montezuma waterfalls. . If you want to learn more about poi dancing, Nick’s website playpoi.com is a fantastic resource!
S l e e p ~ is so precious. From the days of newborns where every second lying silently feels like a small victory to waking up refreshed on a sunny morning after a heavy slumber; I’ve decided I really love my bed. ~ I don’t lie in any more (8am is considered epic at this point) and I’ve been trying not to sleep in the daytime. The result is I’ve been sleeping SO much better. ~ The half term holidays are coming and so bedtimes get more flexible; I’ll be sure to sink down under the covers to recuperate after all the fun days out I hope we will have. Do you like a lie in? What time do you consider a good lie in?
