Eight years, eight homes, and three little boys later, you are more precious to me than I could have imagined the day we said “I do.” Life has been full and sweet, and while there have been many big adventures, the mundane moments with you have been the best. I look forward to you walking in the door at night before you've even left in the morning. You are a daily reminder of God's undeserved kindness to me and I praise Him for you. Happy anniversary. ❤️
Oh! Christmas Tree! Let the festive mood continue with some tree garland. . . . . . . . #momentslikethese#thatauthenticfeeling#theartofslowliving#liveauthentic#seekthesimplicity#littlestoriesofmylife#momentsofmine#aquietstyle#thatsdarling#darlingmovement#dslooking#abmlifeissweet#abmhappylife#petitejoys#livethelittlethings#nothingisordinary#nothingisordinary_#nestandflourish#postitfortheaesthetic#theeverydayproject#thehappynow#kinfolk#aquietlife#aseasonaldecember #createinwinter#feelingfestive#anaturalchristmashome#aquietwinter #northerncaliforniafineartphotog
My grandparents took us to explore this beautiful historic hotel a couple days ago. I am obsessed with all the colors and light I saw here. And the Christmas decorations were so festive! 🎄 . I’m loving this time with my family in Florida. Can’t believe we already fly home tomorrow! #laurellovesflorida
Just a few extras I brought with me to California 😊 Let’s not forget the bag of tea either! 🍵 I shared some tips on my blog all about how to make the most of the holiday season. Especially for those of you traveling! 💕 link in profile + stay cozy friends 😘
Give yourself the gift of slow in a season where the hustle can feel overwhelming. Brew a pot of tea, walk along the ocean, journal out all your feels. Do whatever you need to do to remember what is truly important ✨ 📷: @adailysomething • • • #bloomcreativeretreat#thatsdarling #mybeautifulmess#tnchustler#darlingmovement#thehappynow #girlboss#pursuepretty#abmlifeissweet#flashesofdelight#petitejoys#liveauthentic#nothingisordinary#creativebusiness#makersgonnamake#creativeentrepreneur#femtrepreneur#lovelysquares#adultrepreneur#communityovercompetition#risingtidesociety
Villa vibes at one of my favorite gems in Mexico! The private villas at @viceroyrivieramaya make you feel like you’ve been transported somewhere ultra exotic. You can take a dip in your plunge pool while watching monkeys swing in the trees above you. One of my favorite things about this property is they offer an all-inclusive option, but it does NOT feel like an all-inclusive property. The food is out of this world, and the top shelf tequila options are endless. • Book with AWR and you will receive an upgrade on arrival, (subject to availability) full breakfast daily, $100 resort credit, early check-in/late check-out, & priority treatment. • Insider Tip: The green hot sauce made in-house is to die for. Ask for Pepe (the sweetest, most wonderful man), order the chilaquiles & huevos rancheros and have zero regrets 🙌🏻😜
Who else loves all the baking that goes down when the holiday season arrives?! Our family has been making sugar cookies with the kids for several years, and it is one of my very favorite traditions. Not only do they get along SUPER well while they decorate them, they take the task very seriously and the outcome is always happy children + adorably designed treats. Every single item that we use for baking comes from @krogerco and if you haven't checked out their deals on holiday needs yet, you really need to get on that! We save a lot of money when buying our items there, and you can too! Head to my stories to read more--what is YOUR favorite cookie to make during the holidays?! #krogerpartner#ad#kroger

we had so much fun at our gingerbread decorating play date the other day, I decided to share about it on the blog! at this busy time of year, it’s actually a pretty simple way to get together with a few friends and spread some holiday cheer. 🎅🏼🏠🌲link in my profile!.
Best part about being back home AND photographing milestones like these for people you’ve known basically your whole life?! You get to eat smash cake afterwards! ...although Sadie didn’t leave us too much 😂 Girlfriend LOVED that cake!

So the other day I made homemade sugar cookies with the kids while JT was working. I kinda sortaaa didn’t necessarily have thencorrect amount of ingredients I needed and I really wanted to pull through with my promise to bake cookies with Emersyn so I just used what I found around the pantry to substitute knowing it may not taste EXACTLY like they should but it would keep her busy. Sure enough, they were awful. Luckily she had more fun making them than tasting them and my husband is a human garbage disposal so they won’t go to waste. Wellllllp I was wrong. He legit thought I was poisoning him and was going through our latest disagreement in his head thinking ‘what did I really do that was this bad?’ while everything was getting dark. A bit of an exaggeration but, that’s was what he said. So, word to the wise: if anyone runs out of flour, don’t roll your cookies in baking powder or your husband will think you’re the evil queen from Snow White poisoning his food. PS. We made the real deal cookie tonight. Thanks, @pillsbury.
Amongst finals, holiday work deadlines, and fighting pneumonia (which I am still dealing with), it has been an incredibly stressful and uncomfortable few weeks for me. I’m definitely ready for some holly jolly Christmas cheer. ❤️
I love doing crafts with my little guy around Christmas time:) - We didn’t know this was a count down calendar till we made it a few days ago. - And this date you know what this means? It means I only have 12 more days to finish his new bedroom I promised him for his bday 😦
Do you ever think about the things you hope your kids will never have to experience? Things that you have gone through & pray they never do.💕🙏🏼 . . (AD) One thing I hope my kids never experience, something I’ve struggled with my entire life, is #migraine headaches. On the blog I teamed up with a medical professional from @kpthrive to help all of us understand how to better manage the pain of migraines. Head over to read all about it. #thriveambassador . . Do you struggle with migraines? What do you find is the most helpful to help cope?

Best new tradition this year - even though I know a lot of people probably do this. But I got everyone Christmas jammies and we opened them RIGHT after Thanksgiving dinner (which is the best time, lol) and we’ve been wearing them alllll month. I’ve never had Christmas jammies before, and I’m not kidding, I wear these 3x a week HA. They just make me so happy. — I used to eyeroll at the idea of “traditions” but then you grow older and have a kid and start wearing printed pajamas and already can’t wait to do it again next year.. 😎🎄
