I have this thing with tablescapes. I think it’s because they involve all of my favorites: style, food, wine and good conversation with family and close friends. So today on the blog, I have 3 set ups that are simple and not particularly fancy. I find that a more casual table makes me a better host. A super formal vibe just makes me anxious - who needs the pressure to make everything perfect? I hope one (or all) of these tables inspire some ideas for your own feasts next week. How do you and your family dress the table for Thanksgiving? I’d love to hear in the comments below! 🦃🍁🍽
For me, the pursuit of work / life balance can feel like an impossible goal. I struggle with running a business, managing family responsibilities, and keeping up with social media. In our rush to “get it all done” at work and at home, it’s easy to forget that as our stress levels spike, we can easily beat ourselves up for not being able to "do it all." Stress can zap our concentration, make us irritable or depressed, and harm our self-esteem. Since it's Monday, let's all be a little more kind to ourselves. Who else is feeling similar stress? How do you attempt work / life balance?
Anyone else hate bra shopping? 🙋🏻‍♀️ I think my cup size has traveled up and down the alphabet a couple times since my first pregnancy. My body has definitely evolved since having three kids. And while there’s so much about motherhood I’m grateful for, embracing the changes to my body hasn’t always been easy—especially in a culture that puts so much pressure on moms to get their pre-baby body back. Thank you @ThirdLove for creating a campaign that celebrates the beauty in EVERY body—and for creating real products that fit real women. They have over 70 sizes (including half sizes!!), a range of skin tones and their online quiz matches you with your perfect fit in just 60 seconds. Use my promo code GEN15 to get 15% off your first purchase of a bra! I'm wearing the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra in Naked 4. #Ad #ToEachHerOwn #MyThirdLove #BodyPositivity

After an emotional 24 hours, I’m looking toward the future with this one in mind. Today’s a new day. Full speed ahead. ❤️
TOMORROW WE VOTE! ✌️🇺🇸 The last presidential election was decided by only 79,646 votes in three states (to demonstrate how tiny that number is, Austin’s population is around 950,000 people). And only about 58 percent of eligible voters cast their ballots. These stats shocked me, and propelled me to TAKE ACTION. THE MIDTERMS MATTER! It’s easy to feel disillusioned by the political climate, to underestimate the power of your vote— the midterm elections affect each and every one of us. Check out my new blog post with resources to empower you to rock your vote - link in bio ☝🏼 Raise a hand below if you’ll be heading to the polls tomorrow!
One of my favorite little things about this time of year: sweater weather. Growing up in Montana and Idaho, I learned to embrace the chill and love an excuse to curl up in some cozy knits. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites today on the blog - link in bio! 🍂🍁
And 2 years later ❤️🎃👻 #HappyHalloween
Throwback to Halloween when I was pregnant with Odette 👻💀 #DayoftheDead
Went to put the kids to bed but walked into this scenario. I let them stay up an extra 30 min. 🙌
It’s time to elect the first transportation engineer in the city, and the first trans person in the state. It’s time for @danielleforall in #ATX... Let’s transform Texas, y’all!
I love the idea of DIY Halloween party, but the sad truth is: I’m kinda terrible at it. So I rounded up some seemingly easy Halloween Recipes for kids that even a craftily challenged mom like myself could pull off. The snacks still made my kids’ day, which is all that matters. For these scary easy treats, head to my link in bio! What’s cooking at your house this Halloween? 🎃👻
