This is my guy. He keeps me grounded, makes sure I have a good laugh at least once a day, and tells me I’m beautiful in the moments I least believe it’s true. I’ve always dreamed of a love like this. A steady hand and adventurous spirit. He’s the reason I’m here, going for my dreams despite my fears and insecurities. Understanding this kind of love makes my job a million times more important. I get to watch people who love each other, commit to a lifetime of adventure, laughter, sometimes tears, but a life full of love. And that...that’s the greatest thing to witness.
Mullanphy St. Louis Hospital, showing damage following the 1927 tornado. Montgomery and Bacon, Jeff Vander Lou (Yeatman--long story that). This is the last collage until Friday. Instagram will be littered with old buildings/barns and such as I make my way to Pennsylvania Dutch Country to visit JVL Inc co-founder, Rev. Hubert Schwartzentruber. Will try and Instagram some of our conversations. This trip is setting the groundwork for a documentary on the Mennonite mission (Bethesda, not Fellowship) in St. Louis. #stl#stlgram#stlhistory#tornado#hospital#architecture#northcity
I'm engaged and I'm on Bumble. I met up with someone for a coffee from it. Oops.
This is him. Alex. 😂
If you haven't seen my Instagram Story highlight, I messed with Bumble Bizz. My friend uses the date version of it and told me that I could meet business contacts through it, is naturally I had to try it.
HAVE YOU USED BUMBLE BIZZ BEFORE? WHAT'S YOUR EXPERIENCE?
As a result of trying it out, I met a fellow content creator, Alex. The dude has a crazy good outlook on life and a lot of hustle. He always tries to do better with his content. He's a creative to know, for sure. Check out his page! 👉 @schwartzenegga

Are you as excited as I am?! It’s going to be the best National Embroidery Month Ever, folks. I can feel it in my bones.
Did I ever tell you my secret to making my healthy lifestyle sustainable? It’s Donuts.
Say what? Yep, Donuts. And Chick-fil-a, and Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey D/F Ice cream.
All of these are some of my favorite “Leg Day Treats.” Today is Leg Day and treats are definitely involved! Being able to live without restriction has been the single most important factor for me in sticking with whole food nutrition and fueling my body intentionally. I’ve tried programs that don’t allow treats and, well, that didn’t last long.
I intentionally plan my favorite treats once per week on the days that I work out my largest muscle group and I don’t think twice about it because I know I’m not throwing in the towel. I practice very beneficial health strategies daily and with intention throughout the week and I know that those practices support me enough that I can still have the occasional fun treat when I want to!
This, my friend, is wellness with intention and without restriction, and there is incredible freedom here!
If you feel like you have to give up everything you love to get the health results you desire, then you are doing it wrong! Join us in the FASTer Way To Fat Loss® community! Donuts welcome!
Fantasy vs. Reality ->
(swipe to see my current mess of a studio)
Just wanted to remind you guys that everything you see on social media has been heavily curated to seem perfect and put together - like a wonderful fantasy that is always too far away to reach.
In reality? It’s actually a hot mess (honestly, we’re all really a hot mess in some way), so please don’t spend your days trying to reach for something else, live your own something - whatever it may be - and know that somewhere out there, there are those who quietly dream about your something.
Tag a friend who could use this reminder while I get back to work preparing for #nationalembroiderymonth - aka, one of my something’s that I love so very much. Are you excited?! I can hardly wait. // 📸: @ambergreenphoto
