This little guy has brought so much happiness to my life and today we’re celebrating 🥳 his 3rd Birthday!! Happy Birthday Little D, Cranky Frankie, Scooter, Little Bos, Baby Bear, & Dylan. He has a gentle heart, love of Lady Gaga (Poker Face is #1 and Edge of Glory comes in a close second), infatuation with doors & locks, gets giddy over playdates, is pretty good at sharing, is so damn persistent 😝 and his favorite saying is “No, I’m gonna do it” when you offer help. 👪
I took this photo a few weeks back on a day that I thought would be one of the last cooler days before summer. And yet nearly every day since has been averaging on 60 degrees and it’s been a total dream 🍃

(n.) the ritual of enjoying life’s simple pleasures.
THE SPOTLIGHT AFFECT: When your mind magnifies risk to pull away from something it perceives may be a problem. Our minds are designed to protect us.
When you feel stuck there are two reasons.
1. You are waiting for an external force to push and pressure to do what you you REALLY WANT TO DO or to CHANGE for the better
2. You are waiting validation & permission.
Well guess what.
It’s NOT coming.
The only force that can change you is YOU. Your internal force.
This is internal vs external.
No ones coming to push you.
Get up and go do the thing.

What a day! I love Thursdays. I always feel more relaxed knowing Friday is right around the corner. Today was busy. There is still tons of organizing needing to be done at our new home. Each night is an opportunity to get more done. I’m in a good mood this evening as I’m bringing our first bouquet of fresh florals to the house! There’s just something about fresh flowers in a clean kitchen. 💁🏼♀️💐 Happy Thursday, friends!
Cool, calm and collected 🌴
Today I’m going around local businesses in Chicago and asking the managers if they need pictures for their Instagram or website
I’m excited to make new friends doing this and create new pictures to work with :)
This morning I had a piping hot cup o’joe, walked down to the beach, and reflected on the days past. My favorite part of the day back home is having a slow morning with coffee and my journal. It’s not every day on tour I get to take time to make myself breakfast or coffee, but when I do, it’s something I look forward to. I’m especially thankful that I was able to use local options like this delicious seeded wheat bread from @dellafattoria, avocado from the downtown Santa Cruz Farmer’s Market, and farm fresh eggs. Consider me very happy ✨
You could take a boat 🛥, start in the Chicago River and cruise in a giant loop down:
The Mississippi River 🚣♂️
Out the Gulf of Mexico 🏖
Around Florida 🏄♂️
the Atlantic Ocean 🌊
Canadian Canals 🇨🇦
Through the Great Lakes 💦
And arrive where you started🎯. You would be the called a “Looper” for completing the Great Loop. How fun would that be??

Today is my birthday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's been a ton of scary changes since my last.
This one finds me newly divorced, living 600 miles from my little boy, and living alone for the first time ever. The difficulties of moving a business to a brand new market, traveling to the east coast every few weeks to spend time with my son, and working in the wedding industry while your own marriage comes to an end have been especially taxing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's been a challenging year. Some of it has been hell.
Yet, I'm fucking crushing it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Both my art and business have evolved. My clientele is amazing. I'm doing things and a part of projects that were beyond my wildest dreams a year ago. And a significant expansion is in the works.
I'm not a fan of cliches and platitudes, but I read somewhere that life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself -- and in that regard, I'm making one baaaaad bitch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Remember when you overlooked me? Keep that same energy. 🙃
