During my downtime, I’ve been working on a thoughtfully designed book filled with select shots from our surf trip to Indonesia, and I thought it would be fun to do a holiday giveaway on it 🎄 Check the story for a sneak peak of the spread and stay posted for an official post. Each photo will have details of the specs and lens I shot with, so maybe it could even be a resource to learn something new? I haven’t thought about selling it but feel free to let me know if you’d like a copy and I’d be happy to make it available for sale on my site. It is quite the project as I finesse the printing but I’m so excited to share it with anyone who’s interested :) Photo above: a morning on the porch of our jungle lodge tucked away on the coast of East Java.

Drove all night. Slept in my car for a few hours. Woke up in Wisconsin. Risked frostbite for good photos. Had the best time.
When all is said and done, when I look back over this whole Christmas season, the one day that will stand out above the rest will be our snow day. It was pure magic and I will forever cherish the memory of our first winter back on the east coast!! It’s only been a week and I miss it already ❄️

Heading into this new year with all the sky’s above me, and an openness to let in what is being called in, and let go what is being called to let go.

Знаєте, що найважче у фрілансі? Ізоляція. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Я, звісно, не жаліюся (пожалівся дружині, то вже не треба😂). Роботу свою я дуже люблю. Люблю й “темну” її сторону 😊 Але про неї рідко говорять. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Коли ти працюєш вдома чи в кав’ярні, ти й, ніби, серед людей (вдома, thank goodness, —@katie_nagornyi <3 , у кав’ярні — львів’яни, індуси, британці та інші гості міста. Та бракує професійного спілкування. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Тому якщо ви вирішите перейти на фріланс — я порадив би добре подумати, як ви будете контактувати зі своїми колегами по нещастю фрілансу. Бо я цього не зробив 😂😐 Але вірю, що у вас із цим складеться краще (без іронії). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#randomfact: у 2020 році прогнозують, що в США 43% населення буде працювати на фрілансі. Джерело — за лінком у профілі.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Тому дуже вдячний усім за те, що підтримуєте й пишете! Звісно, я це роблю не заради лайків, але для мене важливо знати, що принаймні мої спроби в інсті мають якийсь сенс. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
А якщо ви працюєте в офісі, у якому разом із кавою й чаєм є ще перешіптування й інтриги, — купіть їм шоколадку й подякуйте. Хоча б за те, що вони поряд.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
А тим, хто також вийшов на цей казковий шлях (і не тільки) — пропоную влаштовувати спільні сесії з каво-терапії))⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Лише зіграю ще спільний виступ із фантастичними @oles_dey_handpan і @yurkomihaylovskiy у суботу — і запрошую в кав’ярню) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have been feeling pretty bummed out that for a variety of reasons, I didn’t get to decorating my own house for Christmas this year. However, with one of my favorite holidays just a week away I thought, it’s really all about how you choose to look at the situation, so instead of feeling upset with myself, I’m choosing to think of it as, hey good for you for slowing down and not putting even more on your plate. We are all our own worst critics and during a time of gift giving, it’s important to give yourself the gift of self care too. 🌿✨ @dunlove11 can attest that this wreath is almost all the holiday vibes we’ve got going on and that’s OK 👌🏼 #dunlovelyholidays
Fun new stuff is coming up in the new year! Finally getting back into making some personal work again and working with some new faces. Stay tuned! For now, here is @cathrinatorres_ wearing goodies from @fieldstudyshop
I have been reading through old journals. This page said that 2013 was going to be my year for “sorting through all our stuff”. It took five years, but I finally made some progress this past year. Remember George Carlin’s stand-up routine on “Stuff”. Now that I have some empty cabinets I can begin to fill them up again. I hope not! I love these Santa figurines. They are material things, but made with love by Debbee Thibault, and they have souls. It’s freeing to have empty drawers and closets, and only the practical things that I go to reach for everyday. I love my 60s where less is more. I need room to spread out, with out anything in my way, except for the things that seem to have a soul and a story to tell. #sketchbook#watercolor#tellon#stuff#sketchbookskool#santa
Reflecting on the memories of this last year through the photos on this little wall✨
This year has been full of adventure and meeting so many amazing people on the road.
I already have a list of dreams for 2019 and can't wait to make them happen🙌🏼
What was your favorite memory from 2018?😍
Mine is in the comments!👇🏼
a year ago today Ash and I were in Prague after surviving the longest and worst bus ride of my life through north Italian backroads, across the border to Austria in the middle of the night with military personnel hopping on rather abruptly to check passports, and up into the Czech Republic. we split up for our second day there — she went on a walking tour, and I took the metro out to Prague 7 to DOX, a contemporary art centre. I walked in to an exhibit focused on Iraqi Kurdistan, mostly the daily effects of Saddam’s rule, images all photographed by an Iraqi man and recovered by his son after the man’s passing. Having spent a few weeks that summer in one part of the vast region that is the Middle East, it felt like going home — with a whole lot still to learn. Images of men smuggling fuel across the Iran-Iraq border; of a boy named Nawaf, who’d lost his family to war, swimming in the pool at an orphanage in Baghdad; hundreds of clippings of news articles depicting a country entangled with war all while hoping, praying, for peace, love, some normalcy. Arguably three of the most commonly shared human desires — peace, understanding, some routine. Today I’m grateful for the gift of travel, for its reminders that the world is so much bigger than my little bubble, and that we’re all just doing our best with what we’ve got, wherever we’re at.

Being behind isn’t always bad... sometimes it just means you have time to reflect and take a breath. It’s been a crazy few months, and now that I’m back in the swing of things, it’s nice to slowly go through the photos of my trip to Oman. #girlsthatwander

Happy 8th anniversary to the love of my life, the one who never ceases to make me laugh. You know the saying, “time flies when you’re having fun,” well it has been 100% accurate over the last eight years from graduating college together as a married couple, having two babies and one on the way, and everything in between..we haven’t always been thrown the best cards, but going through those times has made us stronger. There’s nobody else I would rather call my person and do life with. Can’t wait to celebrate tonight with our two kiddos in tow..no other place I would rather be. I love you @jdowen7 ❤️ #happyanniversary
At The Campbell Home: It's no secret... we LOVE collecting beautiful pieces of fine china. And we LOVE using and sharing each piece when we gather together as a family or with our friends. Personally, I love researching each piece. When were they made? Who made them? Who bought this piece? How many laughs were shared over this dinner plate? How many tears were cried over this tea cup? How many dreams were dreamt and put into motion over dinner with these pieces? For me, it's not so much about collecting the china, it's about collecting the stories. It's about me saying, "Your story matters to me". It's about keeping someone's story alive and hopefully adding to it.
We are absolutely weak in the knees over this beautiful set (for 6!) that we acquired yesterday. Our hearts our forever grateful for friends who remember our love for things like this. What a gift. What a treasure.
Can you believe Christmas is ONE WEEK AWAY?!🎄🎄I just started wrapping my gifts this morning (talk about waiting til the last minute) and was really disappointed with my current wrapping paper options...so I did something a little different! Check out my live video to see how I started wrapping a gift with red paper and ended up with a gift wrapped in white paper using what I already had around the house. ✨ #diychristmas#scandanavianstyle@papersushishop
Well, my toddler found his one Santa present i got for him, my Christmas cards are half done and ‘baby it’s cold outside’ has been stuck in my head for two weeks straight. I keep having to remind myself to slow down and let go of those ambivalent holiday expectations. I hope you all do the same.
This is one very proud big sister, who has been super helpful and relatively patient about waiting to hold her baby sister until her chest cold resolves. Having a house full of coughs in the first week of having a newborn has been nerve wracking to say the least. We seem to be reaching somewhat of a new normal, but it’s going to be a long adjustment period for our family, I can tell. My body is tired and the pace is fast and behind the lens of these pretty photos I’m sharing is a vulnerable and uncertain woman who has shed a lot of tears this week. There have been nights (because that’s always when it creeps in the most) when I have just frankly felt scared: scared for how this all will impact my older kids’ lives, my marriage, my health, and scared that the baby will become sick. We had a slow start with breastfeeding that was scary for a bit too... but then the sun came out from behind the clouds (the way it always tends to) and we sit in its light and recover. I’ve been nursing nonstop and rest as much as I can and things are evening out. We’ve held off from having visitors to gain our footing and my hope is that I’ll have the energy to do the Christmas things next week... Anyway, I thought it would be good to share that side of this experience, as I’d never want anyone to assume I’m any stronger or more brave or more graceful than you are if you’ve been struggling in the postpartum time. We all do. I said fuck to my kids last night, I’ve wondered from room to room sobbing this past week because my kids were fighting over underwear and the amount of clutter that is abound is driving me nuts, I miss being physically close with Maribell, and I’m terrified my baby will get RSV... It’ll all work out, I know. And we have so much to look on the brighter side about- we are all here, we are all essentially healthy, we love, we forgive, and we move on...

Printed and hung our wedding photos! I was really nervous because I've never hung anything that needed this much measurement and precision, but I'm happy with how it came out!
