It's time for #fridayintroductions! 👋 If you've just started following me in IG Land, my name is Kay and I'm stoked to have you here!
__

I believe in using the power of social media for REAL connection, so let's get the conversation going, shall we?
.
🔸I'm a Filipina 🇵🇭 American 🇺🇸living in Spain 🇪🇸. My parents immigrated from the Philippines to the US and now call California 🌴 home. It seems like immigration is genetic because I've followed in their footsteps! Immigrants add so much to the fabric of society with their stories, cultures and ideas, and I'm proud to be one.
.
🔸I speak English and Spanish, though most days it's Spanglish. I don't speak Tagalog or Kapangpangan or my late grandmother's dialect, Pangasinan 🙈. I'm told, however, that I have a good ear for languages, so I'm hopeful I'll pick up on at least one!
.
🔸I joke that I became a storyteller early on because growing up in Los Angeles, I'd always get the follow-up question, "No, where are you REALLY from?" As an adult in Spain, most people I run into on the streets think I'm Chinese 😅. I know now that it's not something I should take personally, so I use that opportunity to tell my story and expand someone's view of the world by sharing it.
.
🔸 If you check out my Spotify, I'm just as likely to play Cole Porter as Tupac, Janis Joplin or LCD Soundsystem. My musical tastes 🎶 are quite eclectic.
__

If you made it this far, thanks for reading my story. We're all so multifaceted and it's fun to step out and share other aspects of who we are!

So let's keep the conversation going.

Tell me a bit more about your story in the comments below 👇

THE WHOLEHEARTED WOMAN

Have you every been curious about what type of women have a life coach?
I know I absolutely was before I hired my own life coach and went through training to then become one!

The women who hire me to work with them as their life coach are WHOLEHEARTED WOMEN.
They are wholehearted women who want to design a life that matches who they are on the inside. They are women who want to stop avoiding their life and starting owning it.

Take a look below. Maybe she has you saying to yourself, "Hey girl, that's me too!" Are you a wholehearted woman or do you know someone who is? Tag them below and let them know! ♡

Hi all!! My name is Crystal and I love lots of things! First and foremost Jesus! He is my EVERYTHING and without Him I truly am nothing but a girl lost in this world! Secondly, I love my husband! He is amazing and we will have been married for 3 years this September 5! Right after him comes our precious little babe that is due October 22 of this year! First time mama to be over here (and looking for any encouragement and tips on having a beautiful, natural, healthy pregnancy, birth and postpartum! Seriously, all ears 👂🏼or rather eyes 👀). After God and my family comes health and wellness! Anyone who really knows me may describe me as somewhat "crunchy" (if they know what that term even means, my husband doesn't get it at all! 😂). I'm the girl that uses essential oils for pretty much everything, makes her own kombucha (anyone need a SCOBY? Mine are so out of control! 😂), her own deodorant, her own toothpaste, smoothies EVERY morning (gets old pretty quick, but they are so addictive and good for you I just can't stop!) and the list could go on my friends! So if you made it all the way to the end THANK YOU!!! And please tell me a little bit about yourself, I would really love to get to know you!!

Teacher pals, did you see I'm offering a special this week on portraits just for you?? YOU DESERVE IT. You are pouring out love and kindness even when it isn't easy, you are changing the world one student at a time, you are moulding young minds, and perhaps you are even molding apples in your desk (it happens) because grammar is hard and even Siri doesn't always know which form of mould/mold is correct. 😒 Follow the link in my profile to snag one for yourself! Your students need to know cartoon you, because cartoon you is a lot like real you... ADORABLE AND CLEVER AND STRONG.

👋🏻☺️
История из жизни : у меня есть сестра (хоть многие и делают ехидную улыбку после этой фразы, что, мол, троюродная сестра - это уже не особо сестрой считается🤔🙈. В моей ситуации с родней, считается все!😂) так вот она у меня микробиолог, она работает в лаборатории и ищет новые формы антибиотиков. И месяц назад я ей читала свою лекцию про 5 мифов в уходе за кожей лица. И знаете, что забавно? Она лучше меня знает все процессы , происходящие с кожей:как мы ее терроризируем умывалками, скарбами, как действуют силиконы, ПАВы, ведь многие эти компоненты используются в лаборатории🔬
НО со всеми этими знаниями она умывалась мылом и даже не задумывалась, как это влияет на кожу🙀 плюс пользовалась 1 кремом (без крема после мыла не выжить, ведь лицо стягивает маманегорюй как!)🤐. Крем, кстати, самой  разрекламированной фирмы из массмаркета😭
.
А знаете почему так ? Потому что когда (пока) нет проблем с кожей мы не думаем что ей лучше, мы берём самое доступное и используем. Реклама сказала, что крем хороший - окей, заверните. И даже имеющиеся знания ее не остановили, потому что на здоровье своей кожи она их не накладывала!
.
Но после обсуждения моей лекции, она пообещала сменить мыло на мягкое очищение и получила в подарок от меня крем, которым клялась пользоваться каждый день 😄 
Этот пост не про мой дар убеждения 😂
.
Просто этот случай очень показательный. Ведь многие люди просто не думают (!!!) как они обращаются со своим лицом, они не вникают в суть проблем, и потом, к сожалению, получают: акне, прыщи, раздражения, аллергии, чувствительность, сухость, преждевременные морщины и расширенные поры. Поверьте - получают, просто это бомба замедленного действия💣 Потом даже и не поймут откуда это "счастье" вылезло. Или вовсе подумают, что годы идут, так и должно быть, мы ж не молодеем. .
Но нет!🙅🏻красавицы, вы можете сохранить свою красоту надолго, вы можете избавиться от проблем, если они есть сейчас. Просто надо понять, что коже нужно и подарить заботу🙌🏻 Ведь это несложно. Обращайтесь за консультацией в директ📲
Любите себя 💖

Hello new friends! I'm Erica! A Palm Springs, California native (born & raised here! 😎🌴🙀) it's definitely "rare" or so I've been told to be from here and STILL live here haha! Well, now that I'm mid 30's (okay late 30's 😬), I totally embrace it! .
I love where God placed me. Here in this golf-resort style, purple mountains, blue sky, palm tree, cactus heaven! 😁 .
Don't get me wrong, I would love all that plus an ocean view any day 😍. But they never could figure out that Salton Sea thing so...🤷‍♀️😂. .
My many hats include... wifey, mommy, teacher, photographer, shopper 😉, impromptu car singer (with or without my girls 😆), editor, coordinator, blogger, pretend organizer (still a work in progress...baby steps!), and big time Jesus follower. 
Most days you can find me climbing something to get the shot - even when I have my ladder nearby lol! I absolutely LOVE our wedding couples, our #empbrides + #empbloggers 😍. .
Besides my family, photo = life. It's like my water, you always need it and I can never have enough. It's part of my DNA. Weddings and Fashion shoots have me on cloud 9 every time! Plus, if you know me...I love making new friends! .
I don't believe in "clicks" at all. Never have and never will. I'm the real deal all the time. No faking or pretending going on here. I honestly care for my family, friends and clients. If anyone needs anything I'm always a phone call/text/DM/email away lol! .
Some exciting things are happening with our little business which I hope to share with you soon!
.
Until then, stay tuned, keep liking my posts (it totally helps Instas lovely algorithms 😝, the more you "like" the more relevant I am and hey then my posts are shared with you! Whoohoo! 🎉👏). Thanks in advance new and old friends! Super excited for #alltheprettythings to share soon! .

On the blog this week, I'm sharing a few of my favorite apps that make my life a lot easier! {link in bio}

What are your go-to apps?

Happy hump day everyone 🌈 I'm still on a high from the @incolourfulcompany X @luckydipclub colour walk at @dreamlandmargate 🌈 with LDC's mantra of "Throw colour around like co getting" today's #humpdayhappiness is just perfect. This Paper Garden creates rainbow confetti ❤️💛💚💙💜 BUT this isn't your average confetti, oh no, each piece of confetti can be planted and grows into flowers 🌷🌹🌻🌼🌸🌺

So happy to meet Jelena & take part in @the_confetti_project 🌟 Thought I'd also take @dahliamayflowerfarm's suggestion & do a #fridayintroductions since I don't post pictures of myself.  What do I celebrate? "A beautiful building. My G-ma and Aunt's voices. A steel guitar solo. My Mom's laugh. My sister's smile when she looks at my nephew. When a song comes on the radio that reminds me of my Dad. Jam and toast. Hugs from friends. Sunshine. A new episode of a good television show. Living in Los Angeles." 💛 #aveclesconfetti #theconfettiproject #moi #confettiyoself

Denver has my ❤️. I love how it's growing but still small enough for me to bike around. I love the breweries and rooftop patios and how when the sun is shining everyone flocks outdoors (which is basically everyday). Oh yeah, and I love that it's sunny everyday. Did I mention the sun?! Even in the dead of winter---🌞. I love that I can be in the mountains in under two hours. And I love the sky. The sky that stretches for miles and miles. ⠀
What do you love about your city? ⠀

I think a little love notes from your other half is the sweetest thing. I don't think it has to be long or publish in a magazine worthy. I just think it has to be thoughtful and unexpected. I think it's so fun when they find it and know you are thinking of them and how much they mean to you. So who is going to go home, write their other half a little note and place it in an unexpected spot for them to find? I'm sure it will light up their heart!

did you know.. you have friends you haven't even met yet? 
that is very encouraging to know. 
I have friends out there who wonder what it's gonna be like, knowing me, hanging out with me, laughing with me, hugging me tight, cry with me.. and just be there with me. 
can't wait to meet you too, dear future friend. 
praying you're ready for me and our adventure together. 
praying that you'll walk through that door. 
praying for you.

Do know what your personality type is? I geek out on personality types and believe it or not, one time I had my whole family take the quiz and tell me what their Myers Briggs personality type was so I could put a slideshow together about each of us in the Beilke Bunch!
I find it SO interesting to learn more about those people in your life.
And you know what? This sister of mine and I are both ENFJs! We may seem different at times, but at the heart of things we value things the same way and have so many small similarities on what motivates us and how we view life. Family at heart. #sisters
Strive to learn more about others. After all, we're all in this together. ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ *What's your personality type? Drop it below! I would love to learn more about you!* #family #faithful #sensitive  #choosejoy #cultivatewhatmatters #savvybusinessowner #presentoverperfect #BeDeeplyRooted #imperfectboss #lovemore #coaching #personalitytest #ENFJ

Since some of y'all are new followers and it's been a while, it seems like time for an introduction. Caitlin Lollar, owner of Everbloom Paper. My designs stem from a love of nature and all things botanical. Each piece begins with hand-painted and penned designs. As a child I loved creating greeting cards, envelopes, and decorative letters for my family and friends. I spent hours drawing, painting, and clipping photographs from magazines. I'm a native of Tennessee transplanted in Alabama. I recently moved to Birmingham where I live with my husband Jeff and two dogs Mowgli and Roo. Two years ago I designed the stationery suite for my own wedding. I found that while the details of dress shopping and guest lists stressed me out, the process of designing unique and intricate paper goods was still a thrill. Soon other brides were asking for my work. That's how Everbloom Paper came to be. In addition to wedding invitation suites I also make custom maps and stationery sets, house portraits, and greeting cards. When I'm not making art, you can find me hiking, reading, or perusing the farmer's market and local plant nurseries. So there ya have it. Happy Friday! .

Hi guys! It's not Friday but there are quite a few new faces around here (thanks for the follow y'all!) and @joannemaye was so kind to interview me for her blog, What Inspires You Daily?, so I figured it was as good a time as any to introduce myself: I'm Sara 👋🏻 a writer that never planned to be a photographer (more on that in Joanne's interview #linkinprofile) but my love of people and stories led me here anyway. I love music and am currently obsessed with @thegr8khalid's American Teen album (thanks for the tip @joebunn 👊🏻) and I spend way too much time making lists of places I want to visit on VRBO. For more on how I became a photographer and what inspires me, check out Joanne's post. Thanks for following along ❤️ #fridayintroductions #eventhoughitstuesday

Warning! Long ass post! It's not technically time for #fridayintroductions but I MOVE TO MY DREAM HOME THIS FRIDAY!!! So I won't be posting - but I WILL be all over stories so join me there! In the meantime - I'm Jen 👋🏻 A mother, wedding & boudoir photographer from Ontario Canada, and Rising Tide Society TuesdaysTogether Leader. 🌊
😊This photo is of me; taken mid-July before I got the green light to ditch my crutches and walk. 
I was injured on January 2nd and then again on May 6th - keeping me off my left foot for nearly 8 months. 
I have tried my very best to maintain the lifestyle I love and that I'm so grateful for, despite being on crutches the whole time. 
One thing I've learned from this, is an injury or illness does not define us.  What doesn't kill you makes you stronger they say right? I've posted numerous stories on my life hacks, my struggles and my diagnosis of CRPS, which is stunting my progress and is definitely taking a toll on me. Jan - Present has been one enormous roller coaster. 🎢Lucky for me the creative community that I'm a part of is continuously supportive - and when I've reached out for help I got it. I've learned to not be afraid to ask for help, despite how vulnerable I feel (because believe me - I really do). ❤️The readers digest version of this post if you scrolled the end:
I wear my heart on my sleeve and expressing gratitude daily helps keep things real for me. 
Also. If you're still reading. Packing sucks, and it's 11pm and I'm having a gin and tonic. On a Monday 🙈

Warning! Long ass post! It's not technically time for #fridayintroductions  but I MOVE TO MY DREAM HOME THIS FRIDAY!!! So I won't be posting - but I WILL be all over stories so join me there!

This Monday called for a lot of extra coffee. Sometimes I wish I was satisfied with a 9-5, but then I'm reminded I am lucky to be chasing my dream -- even if the dream changes on a weekly basis 😉

So while everyone was watching the eclipse today, we were pretending to be treasure hunters and pirate ship chasers! It was such a cool coincidence to find this ship just as we were getting engrossed in the audiobook about the hunt for a ship wreck of The Golden Fleece and it's notorious captain, who used to be a respectable merchant and turned to piracy for glory and adventure. Road trips don't get any better than this!⠀
⠀
Where did you guys watch the eclipse from?⠀

Oh hey. I see there a LOTS of new faces here and just wanted to pop in to say hello! I think 
#fridayintroductions are a thing  and yes today is Monday but I have a couple minutes. If I'm rule breaking I figured a good old #tbt picture would complete the chaos. This little corner is for my blog Grown Up Things where I usually discuss the things I stumble on as I navigate the world of parenting and adulting that strike me as "grown up". Some are funny (trying to use frozen wipes anyone?), some are sad (grief and loss) some are in between. All of them are wildly different than anything the nerd in the picture above ever imagined.  The link is in my profile if you are interested. I also post silly tidbits on here from time to time. I'm the complete opposite of professional at this, but enjoy writing. If you made it to the end of this, please go enjoy some junk food. My treat.

Ya'll, this summer has been BUSY!  I just looked back at how many pictures I've posted since the beginning of June and... let's just say that it's been minimal. Like... minimal enough that the business owner side of me has felt the guilt of not "posting consistently" enough. I know you entrepreneurs feel me on that one. But truly I've crammed every ounce of working for my clients into my work hours and every ounce of summer fun into my mommy hours which didn't leave much time for posting or marketing.  In fact, I've been tagged in considerably more posts than I've produced myself this summer  so if you want to see all the things I've been up to this go check check out my tagged posts! 😂 I'm sad that the boys start school on Wednesday because I love seeing so much of their little faces but I am looking forward to the routine that the school year brings. It's just so much more predictable than the summer and after such a crazy busy summer I am looking forward to that!  What about you? Do you prefer the routine of the school year or the spontaneity that the summer allows?

What would your world look like if everyone chose to show a little more love to one more person today?
Wouldn't that be extraordinary?

I get all goosebumpy feeling just thinking about it & what the world could be!

Yesterday, I was stranded at a gas station.

My car wouldn't turn on as soon as I filled it up with a full tank of gas. (Before you ask – no it wasn't the battery dying/needing a jump start)

As I was in a frenzy trying to figure out what to do and trying to contact a tow truck company to come get me and my car, I had a sweet woman ask me if I needed help or if I needed a ride anywhere. (SHE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW ME)

I politely declined since I was waiting for a tow truck to come.

As I was waiting, there was a man in the line at the gas station who offered to take a look at my car.

While we were standing there another man came up to take a look too.

Before I knew it he grabbed tools from his car and they had my vehicle up and running in 10 minutes!

Can you believe it? 10 minutes and it was up and running!

These three strangers that offered to help – did they have to do it? No.

Am I beyond grateful for their caring hearts and willingness to help me out? ABSOLUTELY!

I was so filled with gratitude, that I didn't even get there names or know what to do after they fixed it besides saying thank you a million times!

That moment reminded me that we DO have beautiful caring people in this world.

It reminded me to show more love to others like those 3 each showed to me.

And it reminded me what a beautiful place this world could be if we all offered a hand to help someone out.

I don't know what today has in store for you or what this week has in store for you, but I want to encourage you to do something to help someone out whether it's a stranger or a close friend. You will make their day, just like these 3 strangers made mine.

Hello, is it me you're looking for? I'm doing a #fridayintroductions on a Monday because sometimes I don't follow directions. 😜
Hi friends! This is me! Granted a dolled up version of me courtesy of HMU by @mua_nat and amazing talents of @tiffanylephotography 🙌🏻 I forget how nerve racking it is being in front of the camera not knowing what to do with my hands ✋🏼🤚🏼. How do all of my couples make it seem so effortless? It feels so weird to say that summer is coming to an end soon but I am excited because we get to go to Hong Kong soon! If you've been there, are there any places your recommend to go? I am most looking forward to those soup dumplings I've seen on Bizarre Foods. 😍

Did you hear there's a solar eclipse today? I had no idea. Well there is and it's also my birthday! I know, I am beyond thrilled that one million people came to Oregon to celebrate mine and the 100's of others who have birthdays today.  I'm not going to lie I've been feeling this eclipse for a few weeks, and according to the only astrologist I trust, Susan Miller she says," if an eclipse falls on your birthday, or within five days of your birthday, the year that follows that particular birthday will be a critical one for you.
You may experience a big change in lifestyle or massive change in one specific part of your life.  Your old life may now fade into history as a new one shapes up." Seriously I can not wait to see what this year ahead holds, this birthday is like NYE on steroids. Taking the day off to soak up all this crazy energy, have some mimosas and watch the moon cover 98.2% of the sun. Cheers & don't burn your eyeballs. .

And blessed is she who believed that what was spoken to her by the Lord would be fulfilled. Luke 1:45 NET

In 2015 I took this photo. I was hiking and confused about the "what's & how's " in my life and God spoke clear as day to me on what was going to happen in my life. I smiled and said yes lord, took a picture and kept going. Isn't that how we are as a people. We want to hear from God so badly about our life and when we do we sorta skip over it. Today, I'm where God has placed me. For such a time as this! I have not figured out the "why's or how's"  I just know I'm here and ready for the purpose and plan He has for my life. #thebestisyettocome

I wanted to officially introduce you to my precious fur-baby, Lola Belle. 🎀 She's a 6 year old maltipoo who's got such a fun and sweet personality. Usually her tongue isn't this long. The camera gets her super excited. 😜 Lola loves children, ice cream, giving kisses, and jumping on our king size bed. She hops like a bunny and cuddles like a teddy bear. She's also obsessed with my hubs. It's ridiculously cute. 🐰🐶If you stick around my feed you'll be seeing a lot more of her. ❤️ Now tell me something, are you a dog or cat person? (Ps-I'm allergic to cats) 😋

This morning I got my nails done! For the first time this summer!.... Mom life is in full effect over here but dang they look good and it felt awesome to indulge in some self care. ⠀
I'm approaching the busiest three months of my year so "maternity leave" is officially no longer a thing. Moms, what do you do for self care? How do you not leave the house looking like a hot mess everyday because that's me currently. 🤡⠀
(Posting a photo of a beautiful client mama for inspiration! ☺️⠀

Hello to everyone from Canada!🇨🇦 It's only been 24 hours since we crossed the border, but already managed to visit this gorgeous and quite romantic spot! One of my clients actually got engaged at Niagara Falls and I kept looking around for a surprise proposal during our visit.⠀
⠀
Have you ever witnessed a proposal? Was it done with a scenic backdrop like this? ⠀

One of my clients actually got engaged at Niagara Falls and I kept looking around for a surprise proposal during our visit.⠀ ⠀ Have you ever witnessed a proposal? Was it done with a scenic backdrop like this? ⠀ ⠀ #weddingphotographer  #destinationwedding  #destinationweddingphotographer  #hippiebride  #indiebride  #indiewedding  #rusticwedding  #getoutside  #loveintentionally  #adventurealways  #neverstopexploring  #morningslikethese  #bohemianbride  #fridayintroductions  #engagedtomybestfriend  #gettingmarriedsoon  #2018bride  #washingtondcweddingphotographer  #dcweddingphotographer  #dmvweddingphotographer  #vaweddingphotographer  #virginiaweddingphotographer  #marylandweddingphotographer  #mdweddingphotographer  #gypsybride  #morningslikethese  #livecolorfully  #niagarafalls  #chasingwaterfalls  #roadtrip ⠀

💓HEART STORIES💓 
It's incredible to me how life can change. At New Years we said this year is going to be 20 heaventeen! We wanted a season of just having fun and rest. Well... the thing about life is you really never know when or where your going till you end up there. This year so far has been everything.... From Fun to sad, happy, mad and very unpredictable. I'm hanging up the towel on trying to control my destination because only God knows and I not Him. So I wait... trust... take in beauty and wait some more. #leadmelord #trustinghimwithmyheart💓#heartstories💓

Because I can't sleep, and I missed #fridayintroductions I thought I'd take this late hour to say "Hello!"
-
So, I'm Gabby. I am twenty seven years old. I'm a full-time #photographer. I have two awesome kiddos, Sophia (8) and Ethan (6), and am just crazy enough to be adding one more to the lot here in the next 5-6 weeks. I'm married to a stellar dude named Nicholas, and we live in a little town called #newphiladelphia in #ohio.
-
I live for chocolate peanut butter flavored anything. I'm pretty freaking liberal in my politics and social positions. My tv geekery obsessions are #DoctorWho and basically everything on the CW. My children are raised on Super Nintendo and Pokémon. Oh, and I'd live in a minimal tiny home in a heartbeat if I could get the rest of the crew on board (Thats a nope.) Bunch of hoarders they are! 😂

Oh man! I missed out on #fridayintroductions yesterday! BUT Saturday hellos are just as good 😉 Hi friends! I'm Sophia!!! I am so blessed and honored to get to call myself a photographer, Momma and wife. Something about me.... I have several close friends who are more like my sister's because I just keep adopting people into my family 😄 I am adopted and grew up in a home with parents who encouraged me to never judge someone according to their appearance. I've been a heart seeker ever since! I LOVE getting to know people on a deeper level and this is one of the many reasons I'm so happy I get to know my clients from behind my camera. There's something incredible about getting to see the ways you show your affection for those you hold dear! It's that kind of irreplaceable love that has my eyes locked in during every session. Ok now tell me about you! Who are some of your people? Are you like me, do you keep adopting more people into your family?What are some of your favorite photographs together?  Do you need new ones? (Then I'm your girl just sayin') •

I've never done one of these before and I totally missed posting it yesterday after drafting it. I know it's late, but YOLO! Here is an inside look to your favorite Mexican wedding photographer from Nashville 😎 #fridayintroductions - let's do this!
.
1. I met my wife in a really unexpected way in the most romantic place, Stake n' Shake. I was scheduled to be at work that night, but something told me to show up.
2. My three year old son has such a wild personality right now, so I always have something to post on my stories. He's the biggest Mario Kart fan you'll ever meet and has been thrilled to have the first season of Pokémon on Netflix. We are the coolest parents.
3. I've been really pursuing my dream for over a year and it has been incredibly rewarding. A little vision will take you places.

“The real warriors in this world are the ones that see the details of another’s soul. They see the transparency behind walls people put up. They stand on the battlefield of life and expose their heart’s transparency, so others can finish the day with hope. They are the sensitive souls that understand that before they could be a light they first had to feel the burn.” It takes courage to feel your emotions and to be so in tune with your feelings and the meanings behind them.

So many times people get judged or looked down upon for being so emotional. 
If you feel all the feels too, I understand you sweet friend. If you're a highly sensitive sweet soul, I'm here for you because we are two of a kind. ♡

I'm confident and I'm sensitive. I'm strong and I'm tender. I'm soft spoken yet firm. I listen before I share. 
I choose love over fear.
I'm an emotional gal and I'm proud of it. God blessed me with the range to feel all of these feelings so I'm going to feel every single one of them in efforts to understand the wonderful people all around me a little bit better each day. xoxo
If you're a sensitive soul double click and let's change this world together to be a more loving place.

"Expect little, and we live up to the expectation. Expect a lot, and we stretch and grow to meet the expectation." -John Stahl-Wert
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm hoping + expecting to keep this pose in my practice for as long as I can. Around 7 weeks pregnant, I thought my insides might rip apart here. How was everything so tight in there already?!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then I eased up, breathed through it + found myself in a whole new place of stretch + surrender. I knew it would benefit me in the long run to stay open + limber.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At now 15 weeks pregnant, my body is still saying "you can't go that far!" + I imagine that will keep increasing over time. But the human body is so resilient + I know my muscles are going to have to stretch far further than this here in the near future. So I try + breathe + reach a brand new challenging threshold.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that's the amazing thing about the body + mind...they are so accommodating to what we choose to believe - whether those are positive or negative things...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At first when we think things are impossible + the challenge just might pull us apart... It doesn't. We just grow + stretch + perform at new levels.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These seemingly impossible + challenging times teach us a lesson + show us that we are so far more capable than what we initially expected. We are so much stronger + have way more power.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So keep thinking good thoughts.
Keep expecting more.
Keep pushing your limits + believing in yourself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I promise you'll always surprise yourself for the better. And there's no one else who can do that believing for you.✨

Is it too late for #fridayintroductions ? Let's pretend it isn't.

Hey there! I'm Michelle. Turning 26 in a week and a half and pretending that I'm not having a late-twenties-crisis about it. I have a deep appreciation of bookstores and coffee shops and when they're combined...I think my heart dies with joy. I love everything about summer time, but the thought of big cozy sweaters and pumpkin-flavored-everything has me incredibly excited. Wood burning has become one of my favorite ways to relieve stress andddd I'm going on vacation (finally!) next Friday to beautiful Ocean Isle and I canNOT wait.

I've been meaning to do a #fridayintroductions since I hit 1k followers but always forget! This is one of the few times I'm not covered in icing or cake glitter! #saturdayintroductions will have to do! ✨My name is Richelle, I'm 27 and I live in Reston, VA ✨ I met my fiancé when I was 12 years old and we are getting married in December of 2018 (we haven't been together this whole time!! 😋) ✨ I work full time for the Federal Reserve in DC ✨ I started decorating cookies with royal icing Easter of 2016 and have loved every minute of being part of some of your special events!! 💗💗

There are some new faces around here- WELCOME and thank you for being on this blog journey with me! I know some bloggers call these introduction posts, I think we'll give this a FUN FACTS title, as I give you a few quirky insights to the writer behind Uplifting Anchor🤗
💙
1. I am a former dancer and dance instructor. Yes, I miss it but am happy for this time as a SAHM and know I'll be back to the work force someday. 😉
2. Beer and wine are my poisons of choice🍷🍺 I can't do any mixed drinks or anything like that anymore, Just can't even recover the next day.
😶
3. I am humbled by the amazing humans I've made friends with around the globe. There truly is a lot of good out there- people that love big and have taught me how to be more open and accepting. 
4. I love yoga and do a lot of prayer and connection with God on the mat.
🙏
5. I used to love roller coasters but after having our daughter my equilibrium seems to have changed and anything that spins makes me feel really sick!
😕
6. I have watched the seasons of One Tree Hill, Parenthood and Buffy the vampire slayer all multiple times through. 
What's a FUN fact about you?!

Feeling very "Europe" with my bandana and cute @fawndesign bag while I'm in Portugal ❤️ if you are new here hello! I'm Cami. I'm just a mom who loves all things loud. I love me a good pair of ripped jeans and a cold Dr.Pepper. I like to take pictures of people living life. My phone battery is always low & I struggle with cooking... but I am all about spreading joy and knowledge. I believe in being strong and brave, but in a way that screams kind. I am afraid of the ocean and any kind of sea creature & my biggest pet peeve is people trying to talk to me while I have headphones in... 😬 so that's me, and I'm glad you are here. Leave me your pet peeve in a comment below so I don't totally feel like a jerk. 😅

Hello Everyone! 
I told myself a while ago that when I hit 200 followers that I would do I one of those #FridayIntroductions to introduce myself to my followers. (I am posting on a Saturday because work ran late and I wasn't able to post before I left.) Before I start, I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has followed along my lettering journey!  It makes me so so happy that people like my work and y'all's comments mean the world to me! .
And now for the introduction...
.

Howdy! My name is Samantha, I'm from Texas but now I live in South Carolina. 🐃 I'm a 17 year old highschool graduate who is taking a gap year to focus on the businesses that I run with my mom, @Lowcountry.Eclectic and @GumballJackpot! 😊 .
Here are the 5 facts about me! .

1. I love all kinds of lettering mediums but my favorite is probably "Dip-Pen" calligraphy. (Mainly because all of the inks are so pretty!!😍)
2. I collect #SmashedPennies and have almost 2 books full of them from places I have been. 
3. I love playing pretty much any kind of game but my favorite ones are strategy games. ❤️ 4. I have an obsession with lightning and when there is a storm, I'm out there taking pictures. ⚡️
5. The only way I can actually draw something is by drawing the picture upside-down
If you made it this far, I just want to say Thank you so much for reading!! Feel free to collect a few random facts about yourself below! 👇 .

yesterday for #fridayintroductions, i played a quick game of "two truths and a lie." here were the three statements you had to choose from:
a) i hate odd numbers.
b) my favorite food is tomatoes.
c) i never laugh out loud while watching tv or movies.
•
if you guessed the b was the lie...you were right! i literally cannot eat raw tomatoes. (my real favorite food is ice cream!)
•
it is true that i hate odd numbers (#7 is the worst), and although i may smile when watch tv or movies, i never laugh out loud.
•
thanks to everyone who played along!!

Sunflowers 🌻 + my boo thang. I am about this, Sunflower Saturday.
Sunflowers 🌻 + my boo thang. I am about this, Sunflower Saturday.
started my 26th year with a sunrise at the Grand Canyon. ended it on a couch in New Mexico with a new friend, a glass of red wine, Netflix and good conversations. .
.
my life at 26 is nothing like I thought it would be... but it is everything I never knew I needed it to be.
.
.
been a lot of places, met a lot of people, seen a lot of things. all of it has convinced me that not only is the world worth loving-- but I am, too.
.
.
here's to more years of loving myself&loving others well. 
of showing people they belong,
strangers becoming friends,
and making home wherever I go.
.
.
because I don't want to regret not paying attention while I had the chance.

Oh heyyyy! I may have missed #fridayintroductions but that's okay! 😁I'm Victoria and here are some fun facts and things you should know about me: ⠀
. ⠀
1. ⠀
. ⠀
2. I'm solar powered! Sun comes up, so do I - sun goes down, you know I'm ready for bed. On gloomy days I want to plant my bum in my bed and binge watch Netflix or read a book. This is why I have dreams of living in Florida! Must haves: sunshine and ocean access! ⠀
.⠀
3. In high school I cut all my hair off and rocked a fauxhawk for about 2 years. It was the best! With short hair, there is no such thing as bed head - just a new style in the making. #trendsetter . ⠀
4. I designed my first website in 2011 to get accepted into college for fine arts. I got accepted but picked a different college. But this started my love of web design. ⠀
. ⠀
5. We  go through a 15ml bottle of Lavender a month. No joke. I use it for everything. ⠀
. ⠀
6. A good social media campaign makes me giddy! ⠀
.⠀
7. I love all kinds of games - video games, board games, card games, anything! I'll play with anyone! ⠀
. ⠀
8. My favorite food is a hard three-way tie between salad with homemade dressing and pizza and anything pasta. I could eat these things all day every day. ⠀
. ⠀
9. Speaking of food, if I could have a super power I would want to be able to eat whatever I want without gaining a pound. That would be the life! ⠀
. ⠀
10. I know my left from my right but when I was learning to drive, I could never get it right - just to many other things to think about! I'd turn left instead of right and I'd turn right instead of left. So my mom would say "Louey" for left and "Ralph" for right. I got it right every. damn. time. ⠀
. ⠀
11. I have three toe rings I wear on my left foot. They're out of style but I'll never take them off. ⠀
. ⠀
12. In elementary school we did a time capsule sheet to open when we graduated high school. I said I wanted to work at a dog kennel when I grow up. My dream today is to foster dogs and prepare them for adoption. Funny how things don't change.
Oh heyyyy! I may have missed #fridayintroductions  but that's okay! 😁I'm Victoria and here are some fun facts and things you should know about me: ⠀ . ⠀ 1. ⠀ . ⠀ 2. I'm solar powered! Sun comes up, so do I - sun goes down, you know I'm ready for bed. On gloomy days I want to plant my bum in my bed and binge watch Netflix or read a book. This is why I have dreams of living in Florida! Must haves: sunshine and ocean access! ⠀ .⠀ 3. In high school I cut all my hair off and rocked a fauxhawk for about 2 years. It was the best! With short hair, there is no such thing as bed head - just a new style in the making. #trendsetter  . ⠀ 4. I designed my first website in 2011 to get accepted into college for fine arts. I got accepted but picked a different college. But this started my love of web design. ⠀ . ⠀ 5. We go through a 15ml bottle of Lavender a month. No joke. I use it for everything. ⠀ . ⠀ 6. A good social media campaign makes me giddy! ⠀ .⠀ 7. I love all kinds of games - video games, board games, card games, anything! I'll play with anyone! ⠀ . ⠀ 8.

It's time for another Friday introduction...oh wait it's Saturday, but today is as good as any! I have some new followers so firstly I want to say thank you! Without you I wouldn't be able to do what I do! Thank you! I'm Ashley and I am the face behind the camera, because getting in front of it terrifies me! I am 27, I hate mushrooms 🍄, and I love animated movies. I'm that girl that doesn't need a child to go watch "Storks" in theatre 😬😊. I am not ashamed! Anyways this man in the picture with me happens to be my husband! Meet Stephen. He is my other half, my best friend. Now let me be honest wth you, our life together has not always been mushy gooshy and that fairytale we always hoped it would be! Is anyone's? We fight, argue, and cry but we also laugh, pray, and communicate the best we can! We are constantly learning about each other and life and that will never stop!  Sure it sucks sometimes and life doesn't always drop the story I pictured in my head but there is always something at the end of that timeline that I couldn't see and it is always better than what I could have ever drawn up in my head! The fight that life brings is worth the battle. I'm blessed and honored to call this man my husband! #fairytale #husband #fridayintroductions #saturday #saturdaymorning #myoffice #thegramgang #cherishedmomentsphotographyltd #married #bestfriend #otherhalf #pray #mushrooms #photographerslife #cartoons #storks

Howdy! I'm Kate. I wanted to post this yesterday with the #fridayintroductions , but I fell asleep instead.  I live in Houston, with my super patient husband and our four young children (👩🏼👦🏼👧🏼👶🏼). I am a corporate attorney, small business owner, Aggie, former runner, and wanna be baker . . .

What you don’t see: the sweat that’s hidden beneath the arm on my stomach! For real guys, I sweat a lot. I sweat like a grown man in Death Valley during the middle of summer.

Here’s something else you need to know about me: I have an unhealthy obsession with chips & salsa. I literally don’t go a day without having them for at least an afternoon snack. Where’s your favorite place to eat salsa? My fave is Los Zarapes, a little Mexican food restaurant back in Mahomet, Illinois! (It’s a suuuuper small town, y’all.) My mother-in-law also makes some mean homemade salsa too. But, let's be honest - I would eat any kind.

Well, happy SATURDAY ! I just love Saturdays. Usually, Saturdays are the biggest day in my work week. Filled with weddings & usually overflowing with pretty  details & people in love. Today, I have the day OFF & there are a million different thing a I want to do.  I'm pretty sure something will be baked today (because baking is my favorite). And this shirt will be worn again (I've worn it like 5 times in the last two weeks). And I'll probably make my way over to our local flea market to check out the good deals ! Any recommendations on what else I should do ? What are YOU doing today ?! 🌷🎈✨
