What was the BEST book you read in 2017? ๐Ÿ“–

This past year I allowed myself to become a book worm again. I had lost that little part of my passion when I started my business and glorified busy... I mean, who had time to read when youโ€™re working around the clock?

Over the last 365 days Iโ€™ve read so many books, itโ€™s become a part of my routine to read every single night and itโ€™s reminded me how good it feels to imagine and dream and be transported through words on a page!

So I wanna know, what was the best book you read this year? Iโ€™m always on the hunt for new page-turners! And let me know below if youโ€™d like a little round up of my 2017 faves!
Maybe we should do a book club next year? ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฅ‚

Our littlest babe Trey is sick with a cold. This means he needs mama and dada to hold him almost constantly. โ€ข
It meant everything to me that Drew and I were together in it, a team even at 3 am ๐Ÿ’™ Without a word exchanged he stayed downstairs with us the whole night and we took turns nodding off and helping the little guy. Today our coffees may need to be stronger :: but, these three guys fill my heart up more than I could've ever imaged. โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Today was an absolute dream. More to come. โœจ

It's SNOWING y'all!!! ๐Ÿ˜โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ Trying to convince Sven to be my sled dog for the day. Turns out the other fur ball is too busy eating all the fluffy white stuff to be interested in anything else ๐Ÿ™ˆ

spent $19.99 to buy home alone 1 + 2 for apple tv so i can watch them at least 26x before the year is over โ˜ƒ๏ธ and itโ€™s legit the best decision i may have ever made #adulting

Am I the only one that feels like Iโ€™m the last to know something? And this one was important. #NationalCookieDay was Monday and I missed it. So we plan to celebrate today, since we didnโ€™t get any snow

From 2 months to 20, these are Papaโ€™s Great-Grandchildren. #hallfamilychristmas

6 months ago you made me a wife, the greatest honor Iโ€™ve ever had. This life with you is sweet and adventurous and exciting and filled with more joy and more food than I could imagine. 6 months ago today, I was walking down the aisle, giddy and filled with the most joy and the most confidence to spend my life with you. And it seriously just keeps getting better ๐Ÿ–ค Best day ever. #wordsformysweetie

โ€œAnd the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.โ€ โ€“ T.S. Eliot
Something to carefully think on as we look back on this past year and prepare for the next. What have you learned this year?

Out of the challenges and trials and hard seasons have come some of the biggest TREASURES. ๐ŸŽ Infertility and loss don't have the final word - no matter how your story unfolds this side of heaven. Because one day it really will all be made right in Jesus' kingdom.
Earlier this year, I decided that the phrase "Life is hard" had to go. Because there's more to the story than that. Life holds many challenges and trials and I want those things to be a constant reminder that the best is yet to come. Life is JOY. Life is full of treasures of joy. And nothing - no trial, no challenge, no setback - can rob us of true joy. Look up, sweet friend. The best is yet to come.
Update on baby girl: contractions growing + intensifying by the day. I had one yesterday that made me like "Oh yeah... I remember why I can't think about anything else during labor." But I'm so grateful for every day that she stays put! This week is all about writing blog posts, continuing to prepare Daniel's heart and doing the same with mine. ๐ŸŽ€ And I bought her some headbands while quiet-crying in Carters. ๐ŸŽ€

merry and bright ๐ŸŽ„

Can I tell you something? I used to live for weekends. Couldnโ€™t wait till the work day ended on a Friday and I was free to get my freedom on! Out to dinner with friends, dance clubs, bars, boys, adventures, vacations, the beach, hikes, road trips, girls nights, etc. Fast forward 10 years and itโ€™s pretty rare Iโ€™m out on a weekend night. Long gone are my days of no responsibilities. Long gone are my weekends just laying in bed till noon. Iโ€™m okay will all that, glad that chapter of my life is over. These days weekends are a constant fest of keeping someone else engaged, fed, clean, quiet, and safe. I feel like all I do is yell out โ€œnoโ€™s, eat this, are you listening, clean up your room, donโ€™t say that, or please close your eyes and take a nap.โ€ It is constant and it is exhausting. My weekends end and I wish I had another day to recover before heading back to work. I love my boy with everything I have, but it would be nice to have a break sometimes. This Momming thing is so freakin hard! #aspoonfulof...

There is nothing quite like a walk on the beach when the tide is out.

This month has been insane!! So many things happening in the next three weeks, and Iโ€™ve been busy busy busy trying to plan everything and prepare for it all. (Iโ€™m also low key freaking out because I realized tomorrow is the last day to finish my Christmas shopping basically ๐Ÿ˜ญ please send help) Thank you everyone for all of the patience on emails, and all that good stuff. Iโ€™m planning on getting back to everyone by tomorrow night so check your inbox ๐Ÿ’Œ

โ€œYou must stay drunk on writing so that reality cannot destroy you.โ€ -Ray Bradbury
How true is this statement?
Like anything, if you stay in it, keep your nose in it, you become it and it becomes you. If you take a break, you breath in other things besides what youโ€™re breaking from. You breath in life and that can be distracting from your creative mind.
While you need breaks from that which you love, breaks can also break you from that which you love.
I struggle with this internally. I am a freelance writer and blogger. I do not write to eat. I write to breathe. I write because I adore it. Life gets in my way but without life I have nothing to write about. I think I will always struggle with this.
I wrote hard from August until November and desperately needed a break. I took one. I needed it. I needed to step away.
Since my three week hiatus, Iโ€™m am now trying to write a blog post once a week, in December, but Iโ€™m finding Christmas, and life, are pulling me away from my keyboard.
Do you have this problem? Do you fight within your creative self like I do?
Do you take December off? Or is it a crazy time for you?

The fun thing about Paint Nite is that you can go totally off in your own direction. I love how each of our paintings say something about our individual personalities! Hereโ€™s to the last Natural Healing Veterinary Care Christmas party with @dr.linda.dvm at the helm โ€” itโ€™s been an amazing business you created, mother dear, and Iโ€™m so proud to have been a part of it right from the beginning. Happy retirement! ๐Ÿ˜˜ with @interstellarmermaid .

First snow! I tried to eat all of it! โ„๏ธ #firstsnow #pupsfirstsnow

Weโ€™ve had a lot of โ€œhomesโ€ over the last 7 years, all over the country. But theyโ€™ve all felt like home because of these two.
As we come into the Christmas season, this season of love and thanksgiving, I try to focus on the things I am grateful for most. These two + Luna are always at the top of my list. With the grad school train coming to a close, everyone keeps asking us where we will be living when we are done, and we always say the same thing, โ€œwe have no idea!โ€ Itโ€™s simultaneously scary and exciting not knowing the future. But I find comfort knowing that wherever I am, it will feel like home with these two + luna.
Side note: We really need to get more family pictures, this time with Luna.
Iโ€™d love to know, leave a comment of WHERE feels like home the most to you?

My life is a balance between dresses and stained sweatpants. ๐Ÿ™‹ Froyo and salads. A weekend full of traveling and adventures or laying on my couch watching Friends for the 14th time. Iโ€™m the most competitive person youโ€™ll meet but Iโ€™m described as laid-back by nearly everyone I know. My happiest moments are surrounded by people but I crave my alone time to re-center and re-boot.
When I work out, I work out hard. When I nap, I nap hard. I wasnโ€™t born with many people knowing my name, but I have dreams so big that I know it scares my family. I promote body positivity and self-love but itโ€™s not something Iโ€™ve perfected yet, or likely ever will. My life is as much a contradiction as hating the cold but living in Colorado is, but I wouldnโ€™t have it any other way.
What contradiction are you?! โฌ‡๏ธ Letโ€™s break out of these boxes!

Thatโ€™s a wrap! What a weekend!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ #reedthomasw #littletraveller #sundayscaries #goodnight #keyslife #wrighttothealtar #seaya

We had our first snowfall of the season yesterday, & I havenโ€™t wanted to leave this spot since. I donโ€™t know if it was the snow or the overload of Christmas movies in our home, but the holiday season is definitely in full swing! What holiday event are you looking forward to?

The Sephora Skin Wonderland set is fun for skin care enthusiasts to try a lot of products at a reduced price, but beyond that, only a few of the products are worthy of becoming regulars in your skin care routine. If youโ€™re looking for a set thatโ€™s fun for beauty junkies to try, go right ahead. On the other hand, if youโ€™re looking for a set that gives you the biggest bang for the buck, I would recommend going elsewhere.

I have a super soft spot anyway for seeing children at their parents' weddings, but my heart pretty much dissolved in to a big gooey puddle when I saw this moment. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

walking in a winter wonderland. ๐Ÿ’Ž๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ’Ž #winterwonderland #bohochristmas #boholuxejewelry

marshmallows? who said marshmallows? oh, frank sinatra did, but he was talking about snow. and since Iโ€™ve been waiting ever so patiently over here for some snow, I decided to give @bostongirlbakes recipe a try and make my own... marshmallows that is, not snow.
โ €
and lemme tell ya, these are the most perfectly imperfect little things Iโ€™ve ever created... besides my daughter. ๐Ÿ˜‚ #jkshesperfect โ €
โ €
has it snowed by you yet? If it has, please know my jealousy is at unhealthy levels rn ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ #DCPframeofmind

Got lost in Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.

I'm afraid to share my joy.
Yup you read that right.
Sometimes I feel like if I share my joy it will make others feel bad.
2018 is all about Expansion for me and sharing my joy is high up on that list.
Often times in the self development world I see people go in two ways. Spiritual bypass with positivity and law of attraction BS. Or correlating vulnerability and growth with only sharing the darkness.
We need a middle ground.
Today I want to share my joy.
Share the celebration of me and how far I've come.
I wake up some days and am stop in my tracks but how much growth I've done in the past 5 years.
5 years ago if you told me that I would be starting my own business, host a podcast, going to school to become a Ayurvedic doctor, and have women of all ages from 6- 69 reach out and tell me that I've inspired them. I would say you got the wrong girl.
I share pieces of my journey with you, my friends, family, people, but I am the only one that knows the whole story.
Damn it's a good story.
Today I want to reach down to my 4 year old self take her cheeks in my hands and say this.
You are one hell of a women. You are the strongest person I know. You've got more fire in you then you'll ever know and you have an amazing life ahead.
95% of the time I end the day with taking in how much I love my life.
Deep friendships, medicine communities, I found my purpose in life, I serve others, I have a fulfilling relationships, in healing more everyday, and the kittens are icing on the cake.
Tell me in the comments what you want to celebrate about yourself? Feel proud of yourself babes xo worship your journey. ๐Ÿ’ฅ

And one more snow picture to end our weekend, because she's just the cutest little person I've ever seen ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ ( totally not biased or anything ๐Ÿ™ˆ ) Happy Sunday, friends!!

Y'all Breckenridge is a winter wonderland! We explored the town today with our favorite @gennean and just look at how crazy talented of a photographer she is! So thankful for this darling friend ๐Ÿ˜˜ Also, today is Leon's 3rd birthday and that's just adorable.

Can someone please explain this to my 7 month old daughter? ๐Ÿ˜ด

What if I told you that I fell in a ditch and continued laying there to get the shot. Would you believe me? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Well--yeah--that happened. It also wasn't the first time I fell while shooting. Ask Samantha (my second shooter) how many times she has to babysit me by just watching my back. Literally. Thankful for friends who watch my 6, and couples that laugh along with me.

Daydreaming of warm spring days. But my reality is putting on my 67th layer, fuzzy socks, and warm blankets to not freeze too much. ๐Ÿ˜ณโ„๏ธ And cuddling with Michael as much as possible to stay warm. Haha I think itโ€™s safe to say winter is here!!โ €

Itโ€™s so cold, so a trip to the jacuzzi, steam room and saunas were a must to get the heat back into my bones! This lovely selection of @moltonbrown goodies in the @bristolgeneva were the perfect post-spa treat ๐Ÿง–๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #VisitGeneva #BristolGeneva

Only 15 days until Christmas yaโ€™ll๐ŸŽ„ weโ€™re making some new Pinterested Holiday treats and watching my all time favorite, Arthur Christmas tonight โค๏ธ itโ€™s so good it makes my full heart come out my eyes ๐Ÿ˜ญ what festive activities are filling up your Sunday night?

So far, Iโ€™ve loved being pregnant (other then that darn nausea) while prepping for motherhood Iโ€™m savoring every restful hour of sleep I can get thanks to this little bottle of woody goodness.
Iโ€™m so thankful for essential oils, babies and husbands that bend over backwards for their hormonal wives.

Monday morning got me like ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ (p.s. that is zombie Kate incase you canโ€™t tell!) Donโ€™t worry, Iโ€™ve since had my coffee, packed everything I need for my full day of shooting at the studio, and am about to have another coffee ๐Ÿ™โ˜•๏ธ I tend to do a lot of โ€œworkโ€ on our dining table instead of my actual work desk! This is whatโ€™s on the table this morning while I work, until I go to work! My laptop, iphone, coffee, memory cards, retouching tablet pen from Wacom and some discount Photoshoot vouchers to remind me that I have to GIVE THEM AWAY! Comment below if you want one!!!!!!!!!
P.s. How awesome is my personalised iPhone cover from @missmonogram_official it matches a clutch I had made for our wedding ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

You guyss...I LOVE FRIED CHICKEN!๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ So much that I even cried because of it when I was pregnant. ๐Ÿ˜‚ My husband bought me some today, so happy dance! ๐Ÿ’ƒ It's also my first time trying KFC in Canada!
