Happy Father’s Day to all the Superdads out there! 👊🏻💕💪🏻

This is my mantra for the summer. I’ve always been an OCD perfectionist... that is, until I had kids. And tried to DO IT ALL, ALL THE TIME. And failed. But these days I remind myself that no one really gives a crap if I wear makeup to Harris Teeter, or if my baseboards are clean, or if my kids’ playground snacks are organic, individually wrapped, and marked with a personalized label. So I’m going easy on myself. You can’t be kind to yourself and create beautiful things in the world AND have sparkling baseboards. It just doesn’t work that way for everyone. And that’s okay.

I’m just gonna keep this 🕶 party going, all across the USA. Next stop, LA baby! I spy the Hollywood Bowl, Griffith Observatory, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, Santa Monica Ferris wheel and even glimpses of the downtown skyline. Not geographically to scale, obvi. City series available in my #etsyshop, link in profile! 😂❤️🏄🏼‍♀️

This week’s #homwork was to letter a quote that’s inspired you from one of your role models. Was hard to choose between Tina Fey and Amy Poehler but this gem from Bossypants won out in the end.

I see you, #nationaldonutday. And don’t think I didn’t notice you decided to arrive smack dab in the middle of my pre-summer vacay diet. I had Cheerios for breakfast and pretended they were little donuts so I feel marginally better about all that. Swipe through for #procreate timelapse! 🍩 🎉

Say hello to my newest 🕶 girl, straight outta #AVL. When not hanging out in my #EtsyShop, she enjoys a good IPA, strolling the River Arts District, or driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains during peak leaf season while listening to the Avett Brothers. Oh, and she’s available in 4 different hair/skin colors. Link in profile!✌🏻 ⛰ ❤️
