THANK YOU to all you beautiful couples out there for making me fall deeper in love with what I do.  You all are beyond amazing.  Without you, none of this would be possible.  I live my dream daily, and for the fifth year in a row, you have helped me win this award, and now I'm also apart of the hall of fame (swipe to see the proof). I am so honored and feel so much love.  I owe all of you tacos 🌮
North shore friends- have any of you camped at Split Rock State Park?  We are looking at the cart in sites and want to know which one is your favorite?
As my season slows down, I am eager to create some personal work.  That was my favorite part of going to art school - just creating to create without some sort of end means. The work didn't have to mean anything, it didn't have any financial ties.  It was so liberating.  This piece is still one of my favorites.  My first real roommate, in her perfectly curated space. ⠀

In this day and age, it is extremely challenging to focus inward.  We are constantly inundated with so many external distractions, especially by our phones and social media. ⠀
So often we find ourselves comparing ourselves to others and we start to feel less then.  Like we are not enough and that the person on the other side of the screen has it all.  When the mind starts to wander to this place, that is when we really need to practice pratyahara- aka drawing inward.⠀
I think one of the best ways to practice pratyahara is through yoga, which is why I am theming this months Yoga for Creatives Entrepreneurs around it.⠀
Yoga for Creatives Entrepreneurs is a FREE ALL LEVELS monthly meet up yoga class taught by yours truly.  Class will be held 11/20 7pm in NE Minneapolis, and I'm am encouraging all attendees to bring something to donate to the Simpson Housing Service.⠀
More details about class, pratyahara, and what you can donate are on my blog today, so check out the link in my profile to learn more.  Would LOVE to see you on your mat one week from today!⠀

I met a really cool human yesterday- and I can't stop geeking out. coaches authentic entrepreneurs who are looking unlock their fullest potential.  She uses oracle cards, smudging, singing bowls and (my personal favorite) crystals to help align herself and those she coaches.  She showed me her rituals, routines and shared her stories with me yesterday during her personal branding session, and I was blown away by her kindness, genuine personality, and wisdom.
Teresa and Luke met online. They both were attracted to how each other appeared "matter a fact" and real on their profile's, so they decided to meet. Their first date took place at Punch Pizza in Uptown then they went for a walk around the frozen lake just down the road. They were married last month Enger Park on a chilly fall day, but the spectacular colors made being outside more than worth it. ⠀

Zelda turned 5 this week!  We celebrated with a trip to the Minnnehaha Falls Dog Park then @petsuppliesplus for her favorite treats.  She’s obsessed with the cookies by the counter 🍩  so grateful for this creature.  She bring us so much joy and laughter.
We finally moved upstairs into our newly remodeled bedroom!  Wooho!  If you want to see the before and how far this has come, check out my blog- the link is in my profile.
On Sunday, my family gathered around our table for a long overdue Italian feast.  My mother spooned my grandmother's sauce on spaghetti, gnocchi, meatballs, and sausage, and we reminisced over the good times we have shared. ⠀
🍝⠀ Some families share the same beliefs, but not ours, yet we all were able to sit together and share in the moment. ⠀
💫⠀ Today is our day to cast our vote for the future.  No matter what you believe in, go out there and mark it down, then come back and be kind to one another.
Hey friends- I'm shifting my photo business to start working with creative entrepreneurs & influencers who need photos on an ongoing basis to help them grow their social media & brand.⠀
I'm only taking 12 ongoing clients, and I wanted to see if you knew anyone that might be a good fit for this before I opened it up to the public. 💛
I'm specifically looking for people who consider their brand authentic and genuinely want to help their audience better themselves & the world. ⠀
If you know someone who might be interested, could you introduce us by tagging them below?  Or, if you are interested, please send me a message and I'll get you all the details.  The link in my profile and at the bottom of this post will connect you to my new business page, and I'm offering some special deals to those who reach out.⠀
Thanks much! Can't wait to start doing more of this in my business! I absolutely love it and have a few clients already on the books! ⠀
Here are a few from my very first personal branding session with @kristinadesignz.  She is an awesome graphic designer with a heart of gold. ⠀
Double tap if you are a homebody at heart.  I love traveling and exploring new places, but man, it sure feels good to be back in my husband's arms.  Anytime I'm with him, I feel like all is right with the world and I am home.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN from Chicago!  My aunt and I flew in yesterday to see Hamilton and today are seeing our favorite musician and shared future husband, Bob Wier play Grateful Dead tunes.  We will be dressing up for the show later, but I would love to hear about your costume.  Describe it using emojis below.
