lauranne boyd  sharing beauty in the everyday. a creative, calligrapher, @ijm by day // saved by grace // living life around the table #sharedtabledc 📍washington, dc

// in a world that tells us we need to be everything at all times to all people, how refreshing and freeing it is to remember that we're better when we're together. i used to think i needed to fix myself before I could be with others. i've learned that when we're at home in ourselves, we can be a home for others. so, care for yourself and let your story heal and inspire those around you: both the light and the dark. it will be messy and there will be people who let you down (and surprise! you will likely let others down), but trust this: it's worth it. we need one another. open up your home, your table, your heart because someone needs what you have to offer.

anyone else learning this? what inspires you to keep leaning in?

// let's show up to life. let's prove how beautiful it can really be. let's face the conflict, redeem it, conquer it, and allow it to mold our character. let's participate in what God is doing in the world. -@donmilleris

// a reminder to us all. ✨👌🏻

// today, i'm celebrating the gift of gathering freely with those i love, expressing gratitude for all those who've fought for our freedom and for the many good things we've been given. happy fourth, friends!

// meet philippe. he and his wife anne (you heard it here: she's absolutely the french joanna gaines!) graciously hosted us for week in the south of france. @airbnb for the win! i love this visual reminder of his warm welcome and the laughter that usually followed, like a friend processing our day and jokingly insisting a local mistook her as french, to which he smirked and replied "i think it is not possible..." 😂✨👌🏻

i've been on the receiving end of a lot of love over the last few days. i can barely hold it all in my heart, and for that I'm grateful. thank you, friends. i love this city and the people that bring such life and light to it for me.

// south of france, you sure know how to show off... 👌🏻

// the best adventures are often the most spontaneous, unplanned ones. here's an idea: grab a friend and go on a quick walk outside today during your lunch break, find a new route to drive or walk on your way home. fight every day to see the world with new eyes. #portra400 #filmphotography

// still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled— to cast aside the weight of facts and maybe even to float a little above this difficult world.

// flowers + apple pie = ✨. drooling over these little apple rose pies from last weekend. #frommykitchen

// maybe today you need to hear that you are more powerful than you know. i love this empowering perspective on joy from @hollywagnerla at #therisingdc. here's what I'm learning: every moment, we have the choice to sow joy and possibility into whatever we're facing. and the situation may not change immediately but the posture of our heart will, and that will affect the world around us.

// the gang's all here for a 👌🏻sunday breakfast and a long weekend. 💯🥑🍋
