:: Date Night: Hubbs+#gucci 💖 Sidenote: These jeans haven’t fit this well in a lonnnnggg time. It’s amazing what happiness and a little #intuitiveeating practice can do for a girl.☺️✌🏾
::💖 I’ll just leave this here for you to marinate on...☺️✌🏾
:: My ❤️ is full. #familydinner
After an amazing visit, tasting and shopping at @lowershannonfarms, we had an epic Alberta beef family dinner with goodies from the farm. Love was all around the table tonight. {swipe to see the epicness}

Shoutout to Acton’s Lower Shannon Farms: The Rosy Relish was perfect on the steak. The bread and butter pickles are the bomb.com. My roasted cauliflower and French potato picnic salad were perfected with the infused lemongrass vinegar. And the greenhouse fresh tomatoes just made my caprese salad! #foodie #knowyourfarmer
:: I never realized how much your family can tell your own story.
•
This is my Grandfather on my mother’s side. He had a grade 8 education, was a WWI vet who fought in France, worked in the steel mill and...was an inventor - and holds a US Patent for his invention.😱 So cool. So amazing. I didn’t have a clue until today. Wow.
•
As my cousin told us stories of our family history, I realized that the Jackson clan ‘make it work’ attitude ran through my grandfather, my great grandmother (swipe to see) and my own mother and got passed down to me. So cool. I’ll take it! 🙋🏾‍♀️ #family #familyhistory #myroots
:: My cousins from the US on the SK/AB Border! #Lloydminster #yll
:: In 1981, my family moved from the USA to Canada - to rural, #Saskatchewan to be specific. Not many of our extended family has come to the prairies to visit. Some came for my wedding 17 years ago but that’s about it.
•
Over the next few days, I have my first cousin staying in my home. She and her husband are exploring Western Canada and made our little city a major stop.
•
I’m so happy to show them this part of our country. They’ve already remarked on the Canadian friendliness in #Edmonton wait until they experience the welcoming of rural folks. #anotherlevel #ProudCanadian
:: As you follow “fashion stylists” online, be careful not to judge them solely by their perfectly curated looks or quick tips to get your style in line.  The way they look in a skirt or amazing accessories doesn’t tell you their full story.  It’s possible to look good but not feel good.  It’s possible to have an impressive closet full of covetable items but feel stressed and overwhelmed on a daily basis with getting dressed.  How a stylist looks is not everything.
•
Conversely, you may be tempted to write off an everyday woman in seemingly simple style because they don’t have a designer label, but what you don’t know is she’s transformed her life by going from ‘crippling insecurity’ to ‘an image confidence work in progress,’ healthy in mindset, strong in self-love and happy. She’s decided to change and invested in mentorship to get there.
That is the real stylish woman.
•
You may think a stylist with the “perfect” fashion blog and easy to follow how-to's has it all figured out, but what you don’t know is that their self-esteem may be very well tied to the whims of each fashion season and their expanding closet (and maybe even their credit card) will tell the heavy story.
•
Now flip that and notice when you see a woman who looks average but somehow striking in her own way. You’ll never know that she to used to have a painfully unhealthy relationship with their body but learned to transform it into confidence and now lives in freedom and joy with herself. She has been taught how to evolve her relationship with herself which changes her relationship with everything she touches. 
That is the #HueAndStyle kind of woman.
•
So just remember - perfect pieces, the “it” bag, a cute outfit, a power suit or a single digit size tag aren’t the only indicators of style and confidence success.
•
Look deeper, think bigger and follow wisely - your image confidence depends on it.

All summer inside my group I’ve been leading ladies to discover the real principles they need to develop a style and an image that reflects them.  It’s not too late to join us. bit.ly/yourbestimage or at the link to Personal Style Pitfalls in my bio.
:: B’s enjoying her new room. I'm ordering groceries for pick up. The sun is streaming in my windows. All’s right with my Sunday. #sunday #theartofslowliving
:: I’ve been taking it slowly all morning.  For the last week-ish, I’ve been in a ridiculously busy frenzy of mom-ing and homemaking getting ready for more summer adventures and houseguests.

Gals. I’m tired.

My back is sore but I look at all our little family team got done over the last 5 days and I’m proud and I’m feeling the lessons of this week: ☝🏾You have a team. It may be small but you have one. Lean on it when you need them. They will help you if you simply ask. ☝🏾You will feel overwhelmed. It will all feel like too much but if you look past what looks like “a mess” there are always manageable tasks. Take those one at a time. 👉🏾Nothing feels as good as finishing. Life will tax you to stay the course but when you finish it notches up your confidence. I say it all the time, ”confidence doesn’t come from doing, it comes from finishing”. Double tap if you’re feelin’ me!

Here’s to you “finishing” something this weekend. For now, I’m off to have some more coffee. #momlife
:: Our #GustafsonTrio took on the project of “growing-up” B’s room.
•
She flexed her artist muscles with a very specific aesthetic in mind and I flexed my color-expert feelers to create this white, black, teal and gold oasis.
•
And as we sat back and reveled in our handy work, the Hubbs says, “She ain’t no baby, no mo.” (Sigh, I know.) ☺️ #growingup #family
:: 💝 YOUNG LADY! How would it feel to OWN your confidence - today? Not when you “get older”.
•
How would it feel to KNOW yourself (really) on the inside - right now? Not when you get “more experience”.
•
How would it feel to SHOWCASE your truest inside strengths on the outside in magnificent style and reputation-building image - at this moment. Not when you “attain a position” in your role as a young employee or “settle in” as a budding entrepreneur.
•
How would it feel to “pose no more,” to not have to try to “prove who you are,” or on the flip side wonder if you even have something important “to say” ...because you do, you know.
•
I will tell you it feels darn AMAZING to OWN, KNOW, and SHOWCASE exactly who you are so that you can ultimately use your voice for change.
•
I will also tell you many women don’t get there until after their mid-30s. What if you could get there NOW? Well, you can... with the power of the right guidance and mentorship.

:: Not an IG-pretty picture but just what I want to see; a hat on the floor, bed unmade, suitcase yet to unpack. She’s home. ☺️💜 #momlife
