TRUE STORY || I drink a cup of coffee every morning even being pregnant! #ad I chatted with my OBGYN about it and she told me that one cup a day was just fine as long as baby was doing well! She’s doing great, so I still cherish these morning times! And honestly, if my doctor ever asks me do cut out the caffeine, I will gladly switch to decaf to have my sweet morning moments. Because my cup of coffee isn’t just about the energy – it is about the taste, the time, and the momenent! Anyone else like me?! 👇👇 Haha.

i set an alarm for 5:50AM, rolled over and hit snooze just to close my eyes for "one more minute." FAMOUS WORDS, RIGHT? but whether you're waking up late by accident, or dealing with a more significant mistake, don't let the setbacks set YOU back. use them as a learning experience, and stay stoked. that's easier said than done sometimes, I know this from experience. but it's always a choice, and the morning can be a great time to take some slow, deep breaths, say a prayer, stretch, write down goals, brew some coffee or tea, and set the right tone for your day. don't just let life happen to you - get out there and HAPPEN TO LIFE. 👊 . . . . . 3 THINGS THAT ARE INSPIRING ME THIS WEEK: - "I can't" vs. "I won't" aka, Jocko Podcast. @jockowillink (seriously, guys. go listen. do yourself the favor.) . - reading the Psalms (especially Psalm 1, which has been on rotate in my heart) . - GETTING BOOK #3 BACK FROM MY PROOFREADER (why yes i'm excited how can you tell) . . . . . . . . . . . . #getafterit #motivate #motivation #staertyourdaypumped #staystoked #feedthefire #believeinyourself #yougotthis #pumpeduplife #livethelifeyoulove #holdersnotfolders #indielife #indiemotivation  #travel #exploreearth #gypsysoul #youngandfree #restless #longdrives #newspaces #landscapes #theroadishome #traveljunkie #travel #letsgo #getouside #travelgram

Words can’t describe my love for these ladies. My prayer warriors, encouragers, ones who bring pure joy. It was so sweet being showered and loved on by dear friends this morning. Always grateful + too blessed 💕 (📸: the amazing @abideinhimrobyn )

How are there only a few of these left in the studio?? I love knowing these paintings get live on in new homes ❤️. As always you can see available paintings on my website (just click "original paintings" ☺️). Hope you guys are having a great Tuesday... just to prove how out of it I've been I thought we were at the end of the week and I was panicking because of all the things I still needed to finish. Haha good thing we still have a few days left. Anyone else forget what day it really is?? Please tell me I'm not alone! #kendracastilloart

Sometimes you will never know the value of the moment until it becomes a memory. - Dr. Seuss Maybe it's turning 32 today that has me savoring each moment with a little more grace and joy. There is far too much uncertainty in life and I just want to say thank you all for the birthday wishes, it really means a lot!!

Getting outside is more than seeing beautiful views; it is also about letting go of the daily pressures and giving your heart, soul, mind, and body a refresh! #ad... Sound like something you want? Me too! . . . I think one of the biggest things that holds us back is the whole planning/packing/preparing for camping. So often we count ourselves out before we even try. So today I am sharing with you some simple & practical ways to make camping easier and way more doable for you and your family this summer on the blog!! @colemanusa . . . . #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #coloradoblogger #thewest #coloradosprings #iheartcos #coffeeandcrumbs #visitcos #mamalife #themagicofmotherhood

There is hope even on the hardest days. In Matthew 1-2, some crappy stuff happened. But after each painful situation, a prophecy was fulfilled. Hardship made way for hope. It’s a pattern, really. Pain gives way to plenty.

This is how we friendship! When these kids moved away I cried and every time we drive away (or they drive away) I cry. But that's what makes life sweet. LOVED being belly to belly with @meredithinkansas and cannot wait for our kids to play together. Miles may separate us but google hangouts & husbands who work together (and talk all day loooonnngg) keep us together! Also mini vacations. Tag you're it 🤣 ❤️ PS: CLEARLY Kansas gets more rain than us. Look at all the green!! 🌱 Anyone have friendships like this? They are worth fighting for! 😍 How do you keep up with long distance friendships? 👇👇👇 . . . . #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #coloradoblogger #coffeeandcrumbs #visitcos #mamalife #themagicofmotherhood #mamapreneur #kansas

This southern girl apparently missed the Charleston, SC humidity so much I needed a humidifier to deal with my skin/eyes/etc drying out. Isn't this humidifier so dang pretty? I'm kind of in love with it. 😍 . The doctor recently told me I've got eczema (I thought it was ringworm for like 8 months🤦🏻‍♀️ haha) and I'm learning how important moisture is in my day to day life. .

This girl. I just love her so much and was so glad to spend the evening with her, her super sweet "grammy" (@farm_grammy01 ) and her adorable baby brother. I hope that when Taylor and I have kids, they are as beautiful, sweet, and smart as she is. She was a little sleepy, but we still had a great afternoon. 😍😍😍💜💜💜 #littleevelyn #nannylife #exploreclt

Her heart tomorrow depends on the things we teach her today. Things like compassion, hope, justice, honesty, and grit. Things like this: “The Messiah has made things up between us so that we’re now together on this, both non-Jewish outsiders and Jewish insiders. He tore down the wall we used to keep each other at a distance. He repealed the law code that had become so clogged with fine print and footnotes that it hindered more than it helped. Then he started over. Instead of continuing with two groups of people separated by centuries of animosity and suspicion, he created a new kind of human being, a fresh start for everybody.” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:14-15‬ ‭MSG‬‬ #magsharestruth

Hello Friday! I thought it would be fun to do some #fridayintroductions today!⠀ -⠀ My name is Stacia. I'm a colored hair lover, wedding planner, paper flower artist, fur mom, wife, + Charleston resident with an itch to explore.⠀ -⠀ In June, Michael (hubs) and I are going to Paris to visit my sister and I am literally counting down the days! (Any suggestions on places to visit/see are welcome!)⠀ -⠀ I've been bullet journaling this year and it has been a life saver. I never thought I'd go back to a paper planner, but here I am. 🤷🏼‍♀️⠀ -⠀ The emojis I've been using the most lately according to my phone are 💜😍😂🤷🏼‍♀️🙈. I think that pretty much sums up my life at the moment. 😂⠀ -⠀ Tell me something fun about you! What are your most used emojis?⠀ -⠀ Photographer - @vestedimage

Officially 30 weeks with our sweet boy 💙 It’s so hard to believe we are counting down the last weeks until our favorite little guy is here. We continually say how ready we are to meet him and just snuggle his little self. We already look forward to all the picnic dates, zoo trips and many walks around our sweet neighborhood. Many moments I stand in awe and praise the Father for gifting us with this little blessing. As much as I think I have to learn or as unprepared I feel, I know He has gone before us, He is THE teacher of all things. In all the anxieties, He is my comfort. When my preparer self tries to control all, my faith is deeply rooted in Him. Constantly praising + forever thankful.

As she said tonight, we all have a story, so “take my hand, we’re in this together. Let’s do this together.” (Catch that clip in my Story!) I’d love to hear who reminds you that we’re not alone. 👇🏼

You asked for more, and I delivered (while avoiding eye contact with the camera 😂). This song is stuck in my head on repeat these days and it's a good one.

Give me bare feet in the sand any day! --- May has been chaotic and just a little overwhelming at times. With so much going on, one of my natural tendencies is to think thoughts like "I can't wait for ____" or "it will get easier after ____." While those thoughts may be very true, I have been thinking more and more lately how I don't want to just wish my days away, or spend so much time focusing on the future that I miss the now. --- Finding the balance between looking ahead towards things that excite me, but also being thankful for the chaos I'm in the midst of right now is not easy. It's pretty dang difficult, really. But I think it's worth it. --- Photographer - @tarawhitphoto

Ministry is not for the faint of heart. It sounds romantic when you read verses like 1 Thessalonians 2:8: “We loved you so much that we shared with you not only the gospel but our own lives as well.” But this takes courage, making the choice every day to put your life on the line for people who might never “get it.” Here’s what I know: Jesus is my portion and he says I am enough.

Eddie told me the other day "I love San Diego Amy". ♥️ Which all boils down to the fact that he loves that I'm thriving. I'm getting out there and exploring all the places; like Cabrillo Tide Pools that I'm sharing on the blog today. . We strolled around the beautiful pathway and my super breathable & 100% organic cotton @prAna outfit & @chacofootwear made the day so comfortable! . #TravelprAna #prAnaSpring18 #alovedlife #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #sandiegoblogger #californiablogger #westcoast

I celebrated my first Mother's Day this weekend and it was really surreal. I had several people wish me a Happy Mother's Day and I went back & forth in my heart with wondering if I was really allowed to celebrate. I know it sounds silly but I haven't had to do any of the "mothering" work yet. I haven't met my daughter - I don't know what she looks like or the things she likes. I don't feel like the mom who deserves a break or round of applause because I don't have any experience. . . I know that's not true. And honestly it is Satan trying to steal my joy. I want to celebrate the life growing inside me! ❤️ . . Also, I want some Mama Life hashtags to start using! Any hashtags you fellow mamas love?!!? In this new season I would love to find new accounts & make new friends!! Leave them in the comments!! And tag your favorite motherhood accounts while you are at it! 👇👇👇 . . #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #coloradoblogger #thewest #coloradosprings #iheartcos #coffeeandcrumbs #visitcos #mamalife #themagicofmotherhood

We've named her! YAY! It is so fun to be able to call our daughter by name! It has helped me connect even deeper with her and makes me so excited to see what she will be like! We also have been telling family and friends - so it is not a secret! We are not the best at secrets! . . . I haven't announced it here... but I will soon. I really want to get one of the @thetrendytimber signs for her room so I guess I am waiting to announce it here once we get that! haha! I just like big reveals too. . . . Naming a human is hard! It will be her name for her whole life! lol. How did you go about naming your kids? Did you wait to tell? Did you wait to meet them until you named them?! Did you pick a boy & a girl name? I want to hear all the name stories! 👇👇👇👇 . . . #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #coloradoblogger #thewest #coloradosprings #iheartcos #coffeeandcrumbs #visitcos #mamalife  #themagicofmotherhood

You ever have one of those days where you get everything done on your to do list, then some? ✔️Today I shipped all my packages, photographed dozens of things, listed a ton on @Poshmark, and managed to clean my apartment. 🍕Treating myself to a pizza party of one tonight, because I can say with 100% certainty that I've earned it #survivigour20s

I prayed for you, for years. I started writing letters to you in the summer of 2006 with absolutely no clue who you were and as the years went on I became more convinced I would never meet you and become your wife. . Singleness was a hard, hard season for me. I went through some pretty hard relationship lessons while giving pieces of my heart away to men who would never be able to fill the shoes you wear. I was bitter and angry and completely numb when you came into my life. . Yet here we stand, on the coast of San Diego, sailing through our second year of marriage, and learning how to love each other fiercely even through the hard seasons of separation with Military life. . I still find myself pouring over the letters I wrote to you wondering who you were, what you were doing, and how Jesus was working in your life. . Thank you for fighting for me @mountain_ed Thank you for showing me the most beautiful picture of resilience, patience, determination, and true devotion in your pursuit of me. . I love you more than I could ever express. You are my abundantly more, my home, my nerd. . #murrayedwithlove #alovedlife #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #sandiegoblogger #californiablogger #westcoast

Bruce and I spend my birthday weekend / my first Mother's day weekend in Canon City at the Royal Gorge! We stayed in the most beautiful cabins (#royalgorgecabins) and had such a blast. . . . Work has been crazy for both of us and vacation planning hasn't been the easiest! We both feel so much better when we get away & leave the house (something that happens when you both work from home!) so planning little weekend adventures renews our spirits! Canon City is only an hour drive but we were able to leave our work & worries behind us and just be together! . . . If you can't always get away for a big trip, plan little getaways. Just one night in a nearby location can do wonders for your heart & spirit! And marriage! #visitcos #royalgorgebridge @visitcos @royalgorgebridge #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #coloradoblogger #thewest #coloradosprings #iheartcos #coffeeandcrumbs #mamalife

OOO Y'all this has been pressing on my mind so much recently. Why am I doing the things I'm doing, what are my motivations for my actions and am I truly being the best version of myself? These are all the questions that roll through my head when I self reflect throughout the day. . I want to make sure that I am always seeking to better myself and be an encouragement and a blessing to those I'm interacting with vs trying to be the most popular. . In this social world it can be hard to set our priorities straight, don't you think? Where are you at in all of this? . #alovedlife #theeverydayproject #thatsdarling #lifestyleblogger #yourinfluence #thehappynow #holdersnotfolders #risingtidesociety #momentsofmine #liveauthentic #adventureisoutthere #thehappynow #cultivatekindness #solovely #forahappymoment #withgracemovement #mylegacyofbeauty #theartofslowliving #wholeheartedliving #lessworkmorelife #theeverygirl #seekthesimplicity #sandiegoblogger #californiablogger #westcoast

I judge my purses by their ability to hold a medium-sized notebook.

The only thing Caleb wanted to see was the sharks. 🦈 And boy, did he enjoy them... After I convinced him they wouldn't be able to eat him, of course. 😂😂 . . . Taking our boys on adventures has become one of our favorite things to do!

Another poppy variation. I did warn you that I was a bit obsessed. *hides face*

I love this man. So godly, so faithful, and so patient. He loves me at my best and at my worst. He humbly admits when he is wrong, while standing up for what he believes in when he knows he is right. I'm so thankful to have him in my life. He's a keeper. 😍💜 #fiercemarriage #godlymarriage #thebeautifultreasures #christianblogger

Interrupting your Mothers Day newsfeed to remind everyone that today is Max's 4th birthday. So far no cards have arrived, but we get it, the postal system is a little slow sometimes. 🐾 Here's my yearly roundup of my favorite Max photos, because I wouldn't be me if I didn't celebrate this 15 pound ball of fur. . ▪️📷 1: just your average Tuesday with your mom taking glamour shots . ▪️2: Max a few weeks after he came home, very bored by my grad homework . ▪️3: Valentines Day 2016, the year of the two heart pizzas. . ▪️4: finally being leash trained, sort of, not really though. . ▪️5: Christmas, aka there's an extra thing in the apartment to cover in fur. . ▪️6: The day he insisted on sleeping like a human, burrito blanket and everything. . ▪️7: One of his least flattering Halloween costumes, the lobster. It was on clearance, okay! . ▪️8: The day I realized my cat was in the top 1% of cute cats, don't fight me on this. . ▪️9: The day Max realized he had a little brother.

Words can’t describe my love for these ladies. My prayer warriors, encouragers, ones who bring pure joy. It was so sweet being showered and loved on by dear friends this morning. Always grateful + too blessed 💕 (📸: the amazing @abideinhimrobyn )
