— can we all just agree that holly looks so much like britney spears in her music video “lucky” because that’s what I was thinking to myself all day & that’s maybe one of the highest possible compliments I could give someone....I went through a massive britney phase, but didn’t we all 🤷🏻♀️ #tessashannonphotography
It’s week three of @basically’s 10-week #BasicallyBaking series and I’m just now getting around to sharing the fruits of week one with y’all… whoops! Feast your eyes on these salty buckwheat chocolate chunk cookies c/o the pastry genius @sarahjampel - I am happy to report that these guys are as tasty as they look. Chewy-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside, slightly savory/bitter/funky (?) thanks to the buckwheat and featuring pools (!) of melty bittersweet chocolate goodness. I’ll definitely be making these again ASAP. Stay tuned for weeks 2 & 3 ✨

Monday feels 🤪
Take note, specifically, of Oakley & Maple’s faces 👉🏼 Says it all 😂
Kidding - I’m call it! Today is going to be gooood. Going to spend the day filming & editing 🤗 in amongst juggling my children a bit like this 🤪
Not going to lie... I’m hella nervous about putting this ‘new style’ of video out. I’m excited, but nervous. It’s going to be very different, so I’m sure a lot of people won’t vibe with it and may not stick around for it but I’m doing this for me. It’s my creative outlet and I want to do something that *I* will enjoy, not just make content that everyone else wants 🙃 which I know is not the typical YouTube way but 😬🤷🏼♀️ we all know I’m not your typical social media wank so 💃🏼 hope you’re here for it!
Can I share something with you?
Instagram can be hard 🙄 let’s chat about real stuff here. It’s hard to compete with an app you’ll never beat AND it’s OKAY to accept that you can’t always win with this platform.
It’s hard to put yourself out there to people who don’t know you and it’s hard to be open when others don’t do the same. Bet you didn’t know my heart pounds and I get super anxious when I click post on my new IGTV series. But I do it anyways!
Please let the next words sink in. Instagram does not equal success. So please don’t play the comparison game! Don’t let this app define you. Don’t let it consume you. Don’t let it drain you. Don’t let it fool you.
My goal on here is to build a community. Instagram has never defined my success and I hope you all remember it does not define yours either! Let’s use this platform to connect and build each other up instead of compare and judge. And if you’re not into that I’m probably not your cup of tea 😉 hope this message hits home with y’all and you start looking at this platform in a new way. I know I am.

I’ve struggled with my health for awhile. Nothing serious or life threatening, just a lot of little things that take a big toll on me. .
For the longest time I’d get so mad at myself that I’d be in too much pain to take care of my family. I hated that I had to spend days at a tune in my bed. Then I resented the fact that it became normal. My family got used to me having to take a few sick days, often.
I would feel guilty, and tell myself how I was lazy and needed to try harder. So I would. Then I’d end up in the emergency room. After MANY tearful conversations with my husband, he helped me to realize that by beating myself up about being sick, something I could not control, I was making myself worse! I was causing MORE downtown, more time away from my family.
So now when I’m dealing with my health, like today, I try to be kinder to myself. I let my body rest, without pressure, without guilt, without resentment. I have realized that loving my body, instead of feeling betrayed by it, is the medicine I need. I already have A LOT to deal with, I don’t need more to add to my healing.
I know that being kind is contagious. So it only makes sense that by being kind to ourselves will overflow into being kind to others. Being patient, compassionate and loving to ourselves is really the truest way to flood the world with kindness!

Anzeige, da Markennennung: Probably the most spontaneous pic I have ever posted, but I kinda like it 📸 What about you? #weekendtrip
My big brother married the most incredible woman yesterday and I am beyond excited to have Morgan and her amazing family as a part of our family. The ceremony and reception were absolutely stunning and this weekend has been unforgettable. I love you both to the moon and back and can’t wait to witness the beautiful life you guys create together. P.S. my nephew was the cutest ring bearer! 👰🏼🤵🏻🥂✨❤️🎉 #MorganAndDrew#Pensacola#Florida#WeddingWeekend

The most healing day for the soul and it was very much needed 💛 We woke up this morning and decided on a whim to pack up the kids and make the two hour drive to the coast. It was the most fulfilling day with no schedules, lots of long talks and soaking in the family that we’ve created together these past few years. Going to bed with a full heart and more tired than ever, but I wouldn’t want it any other way ✨
This might have been the laziest weekend of all times. But it was just what we needed. ✨
And seeing this little guy right here smiling and crawling around happily again today after being super weak yesterday just gives me the biggest feeling of gratitude and humility. 🙏🏻 Because in the end there’s only one thing that truely counts: our health. 💗 Be aware of it and always good to yourself. #allthatcounts#todaysthoughts

Kaitlyn & Michael met pre-ceremony. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before they saw their guests, their venue, and everything else, they took 10 minutes to see each other for the first time on their wedding day, to slow down before they say 'I do' and then off they went, hand in hand to become husband and wife. 💍
Things I’ve been purchasing recently: grandpa sweaters and house plants. Or, trees. House trees? Tree houses? Whatever. This guy here. And a couple of these oatmeal cardigans. Almost as delicious as real oatmeal. Almost.

"I bought this product for my son's acid reflux after researching YouTube for a few solutions. I came across a mother who used this product for stomach issues and realized that it also helped with her child’s reflux. With no other options I took a chance on this product and it works amazingly! It’s a bit pricey but it is well worth it. I bought this product when my son was a month old and he is currently four months old and we still have some left so it is worth its value. I would definitely recommend for any infant having reflux issues."

#SavorSundays ♥ Savoring life one moment at a time.
Texas Range Day. All created and orchestrated by my husband from beginning to end. A labor or love for 6+ months. No one, and I mean NO ONE can truly understand the love & commitment he poured into this project except for us, his family, who watched every single move with a front row seat. To say that I am proud of him would be a HUGE understatement.
I think he is still trying to process it all, wondering if the months & months of stress and time was all worth it. I compared it to kind of planning a wedding day... ALL that time, money & commitment done in the blink of an eye. With no time to truly consume what’s happening when it’s happening. It goes by so fast.
But I knew. I saw.
I stood there and looked around at all of these wonderful people in the industry in their element laughing, smiling, shooting, networking, sharing, loving... TOGETHER. And he brought them here. Jack did this. And it was a huge success. I saw the good work he did and then some.
I loved this day for my husband so much. I loved standing back, me watching him in awe and being so dang proud of his vision + ambition. I loved meeting so many new, genuine & friendly faces. Thank you to everyone who helped make this day so special. ♥️
These days off, really help me unwind and relax and rest. Catch up on family and myself . Letting myself unwind and Breath. I can’t not lie and say I don’t feel guilty about not being at work ( requested days) but I also need to recharge and enjoy my family . I give my 100% at work always and even though I don’t show it , I actually do get tired and drained. Now I have been recharged and ready to go back in the ring 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Are you ready ? Also I ate too much!!! I ate a lot but it was yummy 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 now to work it off at work... am taking my Ibuprofen to work tomorrow, I close so am going to be sore🙌🏻🙌🏻🙏🙏
