👆🏼 How he actually sleeps. I hope you’re having a Sunday as lazy and relaxing as Archie’s.
My #DoubleWear shade is 5N2 Amber Honey. I've struggled to find a foundation that matches my skin tone perfectly, but I love how @EsteeLauder's Double Wear Foundation is spot on! It comes in 38 different shades and provides the best coverage. ✌🏻✌🏼✌🏽✌🏾✌🏿#EsteePartner#ad 📷 by @foodphotographer
When you realize you actually hate winter and are contemplating your decision to move above the Mason-Dixon Line...have a cocktail to warm yourself up! 😉 Shop the outfit via the link in my bio, or by downloading the @liketoknow.it app! http://liketk.it/2tT4E #liketkit
baš bi nam mogao jedan snijeg pasti opet ❄️🙈
Had a conversation recently about living life “in the middle”. You know, the safe path. The one that looks cute. The one that doesn’t cause many to stop in their tracks. Made me realize how I live middle. And while I blamed my kids for living there, used the excuse that I have to protect them, is it really about them??? or is it about my own fears and insecurities? Truth is powerful, it can RELEASE so much that lies deep within us but it takes a very strong person to stand up and say, “Here is my story in all its glorious mess”
Then I think, do people REALLY want to hear that though?If you scroll through your feed, what do you see? The perfect vacation, families, spouses, the most amazing boyfriends/girlfriends and the list goes on. Everyone living a glorious mess free life. How is that possible?? Where is their mess? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s important to focus on positive but there also needs to be a layer of transparency that goes along with it. So it leads me back to my 2018 word that I shared a few weeks ago, RELEASE..hopefully my “release” will help inspire others with their own struggles. 2018 is going to be one incredible ride! I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you for following along. Even the creepers that read and watch my story but don’t like or comment ever..Haha! It’s ok. I get it, sort of 🤪😘
The house smells like cookies and it's the perfect day for a nap.
Have you ever seen something so beautiful?
Well it happened, lily had her first kiss. // it counts bc it was mutual, they both leaned in for a smoocher. It wasn’t just Lily going in for the kill like her daddy. 😂// if I had to pick a family to co-grandparent with I’d totally choose @ginnyelee. We could drink champs and watch @hallmarkchannel at all the holidays. #momlife#ilovethatimcoachinglily 📷:aunt @buenobrandi 😘
Spent the day shooting with these blogger babes. What’s funny about blogging to me is not many people talk about all the hard work that goes in to it. It’s so great to chat with girls who work their butts off hustling to make their dreams a reality all the while supporting other girls chasing their goals too.
Print this out. Stick it on your mirror. Memorize it. Live it. 🙌🏼 This is the mindset we need to have. Before you start focusing on your body, you need to learn to LOVE yourself first. This is yo life, peeps… not someone else’s. Be your OWN best friend. Love yourself, fight for yourself and take care of yourself! You are the ONLY person you need to be good enough for. I say we kick off the holiday week 🎄 by celebrating who we are and what we LOVE about ourselves. Me first: I AM a fighter. I AM creative. I AM kind. I AM strong. Now it’s your turn! Finish the sentence: I AM ________👇🏼👇🏼
☝🏼Style tip: my favorite way to wear open toe booties in the colder months is with a fancy pair of socks. // Shop mine from @johnstonandmurphy (they come in a beautiful gray color, too, and I hear they’re on sale!) her 👉🏼 http://liketk.it/2tUDh @liketoknow.it

"Dear Santa, I promise I've been a really good girl this year. Except the times I've thrown food, bit my mom, and randomly screamed for hours at a time. But I'm just a baby so it's all good. Anyways, for Christmas I want a remote control, orbs, and 1,000 more dogs. Just give me all the dogs. Thanks in advance" - Amelia Ryan
We had the best Sunday ever with Evan and @finneganperkoski // 📸: my husband
Salt in the air, sand in my hair. 🌊There’s nothing quite like being home. Where do you call home? Let’s chat in the comments! ✨
I’m not gonna lie, friends...the holidays are kicking my booty this year. Doing my very best to:
run a business ✔️
complete all editing ✔️
run a household ✔️
be a good mom/wife✔️
stay healthy ✔️
keep my family healthy ✔️
answer all emails/texts ✔️
make the season magical ✔️
get just enough sleep to function ✔️
And, if I’m being really honest, it all feels like kind of a lot. I’ve had a few intense moments of overwhelm over the last two months that weren’t very pretty or IG worthy, but that’s real life and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. We ALL struggle sometimes. It doesn’t make us any less talented, less intelligent, less capable; it just makes us human. When things feel extra hard, I come back to this mantra: “help is always available.” I say it over and over to remind myself that I’m never alone and it has pulled me out of some pretty dark places. I have friends and family I can lean on, partner companies I can outsource to, and a mom who will drop everything and hop on a 🚂 to #buffalo to help me polish off my to-do list before Christmas. 🙏🏼❤️ (If you’re waiting on me for something, it’s coming atcha’ THIS WEEK!!!) Anyone else feeling a bit overwhelmed this holiday season? 🙋🏻♀️ I promise that mantra will shift your perspective in a BIG way. Steal it. Use it. We’ve got this. 🙌🏼
As the year comes to a close, I'm going to be playing a little catch-up on the blog! I have a few more engagement sessions that I have not shared enough pictures from!! To start off, Jenna and Brent! Aren’t they adorable? 😍 Check the link in my bio to see more!
My sister likes to tell me I'm "making potions" whenever I prepare a bottle because once a day you will catch me adding these two to the mixture.
Does anyone else use @mommysbliss products with their littles? I'm seriously in love with this brand.
Anyone see (AND LOVE) Star Wars: The Last Jedi? No spoilers, but using some emojis, let me know what you thought! Here’s mine: 😍😭👊🏻♀| Photo by @stephaniedrenka a long time ago ☺️
