This weekend me and this handsome guy celebrated five incredible years of marriage and I couldn't even begin to count my lucky stars! And with our new addition finally on the way, this year has been absolute the best yet! I love you, my sweetheart. ๐Ÿ˜Š๏ธ #sofreakinginlove #happyanniversarytous | pc: @brookescheurnphoto

Did you catch our 24 week bumpdate on my blog? I'm sharing an in-depth look at how my pregnancy has been going so far, including my favorite moments and how much weight I've gained. ๐Ÿ™Š #pregnancy #24weekspregnant #bumpdate #ivfsuccess #ontheblog | pc: @katenelle_photography

TWO LETTERS:

Dear beloved readers,
Sorry guys, I've basically forgotten that Instagram exists for the past few weeks, and I'm honestly not mad about it. It's nice to take a little break and enjoy my summer. It's refreshing not to have to constantly think about what's going up next and instead of photographing every moment, just enjoying it. Just being. And let's be honest, half my moments lately include naps. ๐Ÿ˜œ #pregnancylife

But, have no fear, I shall be back to this wonderful little platform. I just needed a little breather (we have a love-hate relationship). But first, a few notes for @instagram:

Dear Instagram, your algorithm sucks and it's killing my vibe. What was once a helpful tool to grow my business and gain new readers to my blog has now become something I have to fight tooth-and-nail just to get my own current followers to see my content. The wonderful people I've already worked so hard to establish an engaged connection with. Me, an authentic user who uses the platform organically, is being essentially punished for NOT buying followers or likes. Meanwhile, those who are essentially "cheating the system" are advantaging from your algorithm. And it's ultimately hurting my business. Not cool Instagram, not cool.

And on that note, I'd really love if you could add something of actual use to your organic users: like, docking accounts who ruin the experience by buying likes or followers. That would be nice. Maybe @fohrcard can get after it.

That's all. ๐Ÿ˜œ I love you all dearly my amazing friends. Stay tuned, engaged and real please. #nobotsallowed #reflections #dearinstagram

Did you know there's a SALE happening every single day of the year over at @nordstromrack?! Whoa nelly, it's true! And I scored this jumpsuit on sale that's soooo perfect for summer and heading into fall! Shop it here, darlings: http://liketk.it/2s0NG #liketkit @liketoknow.it #nordstromrack #nordstromrackfinds #rackpack

I have to admit, I spend a lot of money on beauty products. And some I love and some I don't. But @olay is leading the pack in giving you #ageless skin for only $26.99. Find out more on my blog. #olay #sponsored

Currently looking for Friday because it's when I get to see my ๐Ÿฏ again. I hate being away from him all week but it's so nice escaping that AZ summer heat (especially while preggers) and spending the month in Utah with my fam! #fridaywhereyouat #utahsummers #23weekspregnant

Me and my honey on top o da world! PS, my first time wearing maternity shorts! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป #parkcity #weekendsathome #deervalley

Wait, you don't always jump in the chilly river with your dress on?! ๐Ÿ˜œ It felt so refreshing though and I couldn't wait to get my feet wet! It's what summer is all about! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #jacksonhole #mountaingirl #traveladdict

How fun are these @davidyurman DY Bel Aire Collection necklaces to layer?! I especially love the rose gold mixed with turquoise. Be sure to check out this new free-spirited collection here: http://liketk.it/2rVR3 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #DYBelAire #DavidYurman #jewelry

HEY UTAH: Wanna enjoy an adventurous dinner out in the mountains (cooked right in front of you by three amazing top chefs)?! Cool, thought so. Sign up for @clothandflame's July 8 dinner in Park City (that's this Saturday). And PS, I'll be there! ๐Ÿ˜œ You can view the full menu on their site too. #parkcity #utah #eatoutthere | pc: @brookescheurnphoto

This log right here looked like a nice little seat for this pregnant lady haha ๐Ÿ˜‚! I haven't been getting in my usual daily naps lately while frolicking through the mountains, but who would want to sleep through the adventures that await?! #jacksonhole | pc: @meagtheegg

Me and my Fourth of July family. I can't wait for our little addition to make their debut in next years photo! โ˜บ๏ธ #22weeks #fourthofjuly2017 #parkcity
