  • 360 Months old🤪🎉👑
So much has happened this year- the good, the bad, the ugly, but most importantly the GROWTH💛
I am over the moon excited to continue to bloom more fully into the person I know I was created to be. 
They say its only gets better from here...
Cheers to THIRTY, THANKFUL, & THRIVING!

  • MEET KAITLYN!✨
This ray of sunshine & I share the same love for pizza, dance parties, amazon prime, carmex, fun hats, laughing so loud, yellow dresses, sunsets, all things boho, & if that doesn’t tell you what level we are on, I even blotted her sweat with my finger & literally splashed her in the eye - BFF FOR EVER?
Psh. Florida’s million degree heat didn’t stop us! 
💦 
Spammed more of my favs from her session in my stories! Check it out and tell me which is your favorite!
Swipe to see my fav! “What’s the cow say, K?” 🐮😂

  • 30A ☀️ recap:
We got asked if we were movie stars
Ate snow cones from air airstream 
Learned that @chelsea_hannah doesn’t like root beer 
Found the cutest photo spots 
Have a new love affair with cheese dip 
Learned we can’t make grits like @greatsoutherncafe 
Sipped coffee at sunrise 
Ate THE BEST DONUTS
Got catfished trying to find the “rainbow houses” 
And laughed like boo-boo the fool until we cried.
(Swipe to see our IG vs reality snow cone saga)
🌴🌊☀️
WHAT A WEEKEND 💛
My cup has never been fuller and I’m so grateful for @chelsea_hannah planning the sweetest wekeend. These will always be my favorite memories 💛

  • Is there something that stops you from really reaching for your wildest dreams? Fear of judgement? Fear of Failure? Confidence? Risks?
I wasted SO MUCH TIME early in my career worrying about whether I was good enough or smart enough to run my own business. I let the lies of the enemy creep in and I believed them - for a while.
•
Thanks to mentorships + workshops I have attended, and people like YOU who support, believe and encourage me no matter what, I see the blue sky is my limit!
YOU JUST GOTTA DO IT.
Whatever ‘IT’ is for you, just freakin’ do it already.
And know this: you’re gonna fail. You’re gonna fall flat on your face and say, ‘SEE KRISTEN! I TOLD YOU!’ but then I’m gonna tell you to get back up and try again, and again, and again.
•
Just like virtual mentorships - I was TERRIFIED to pitch this idea to you guys. Like, almost didn’t do it at all - but I saw a need and wanted to help, and I TRIED SOMETHING NEW that scared me spit less..and guess what? It was SO WORTH IT. People need what you have to offer.
•
If you need a little boost, I am here to help! Pay what you can virtual mentor sessions are still going strong and no-one is excluded. No matter what your ‘IT’ is, I want to be your best cheerleader. We will spend 1/2 an hour answering all your questions and hone in on what is holding you back from reaching your goals. I am an open book so you can literally ask me anything you want! Shoot me a message and lets get you set up!
I CANT WAIT TO SEE YOUUUUU!!
•
**oooh & all  my loves who have done a virtual mentorship already, I would love it if you dropped some words of encouragement to the love who is on the fence wanting to make the leap!**

  • Hey! 
Are ya smiling?
You should be BC IT’S BABY FRIDAY EVE + because these two spicy babes are the cutest things evaaaa!
💛
Even though they are the cutest little peaches, Lauren + Colin may never shoot with me again because it was for real, over 101° and I was making them drunk walk, smell each others sweat, and snuggle on a blanket like its -29 in Alaska. When we finished their session, my Apple Watch told me I burned 223 calories in just an hour😳I’m telling ya, it was a scorcher.
But they did it, and they did it so dang good that I can’t pick any favorites so I am spamming my stories with more of them! Check em’ out and tell me if you can relate to a photo session on the hottest day on planet earth☀️🥵

  • You know, God has this funny tendency: He chooses messy, broken people to do the extraordinary, God glorifying -things. Think about it..an adulterer to lead his holy nation (David). An accomplice of murder to spread the gospel (Paul). Even Peter, one👏🏻of👏🏻the👏🏻disciples👏🏻deny Jesus THREE  times on the night before he went to the cross. I don’t know how to explain this part of how God works-It’s so different than how we as humans would do it. We would choose the most perfect among us, the steadiest, the least risky. But God scandalously & stubbornly chooses sinners instead. 
Are you feeling unworthy today? Do you wonder how God could even want you when he knows everything about you ? Push aside those lies and doubts, the fears and failures, and take hold again of the one who will never let you go. Tell yourself God, I know I’m not perfect, but I believe you can use me anyway-Then welcome this day with courage, faith, and the belief that nothing you do (or don’t do) can overcome his love for you!

  • HOLY GUACAMOLE!!!
YOU GUYSSSS!! Something amazing happened this morning when I stepped on the scales: I HIT MY FIRST GOAL on this weight loss journey!!! and I HAD TO SHARE IT WITH YOU, not because it’s brag-a-docious, but because we don’t do it enough. 
We don’t give ourself some freakin’ dang credit when we hit goals. We don’t pat ourselves on the back when we accomplish something that is SO important to us. We just don’t - and it’s so sad. In therapy last week, we talked about this exact thing. How every single day, we should be speaking positively over ourselves and EMBRACE OUR WINS no matter how big or small. It legit could be you had a hard conversation today that was over due, or you sent that email you been meaning to, or you signed up for that thing -WHATEVER IT IS, GIVE YA SELF SOME DANG CREDITTTTTT!
 So that’s what I am doing - I am telling you I had a WIN today and I am PATTING/SLAPPING MY BACK! WAHOOO!!!
Tell me a win/accomplishment you have had lately and lets celebrate🎉 !

  • The laundry is sitting 7 ft high on my bed, the to-do list for LAST week is still undone, I have 2058 emails to answer and I already feel defeated telling myself “Kristen! you haven’t been productive AT ALL lately!”
But today my devotion hit me so hard and gave me a new perspective on “productivity”
The title:
Your worth is beyond measure.
Life isn’t about being productive- it’s about being purposeful. I’ve often believed the lie that God‘s first priority is what I can produce. But I am learning that just because something doesn’t have tangible results, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a eternal impact. 
Instead of asking myself, “have I been productive today?“ I’m going to ask, “Kristen,have you been purposeful today?” To me that simply means living in love. Sometimes love looks like laundry and answering emails and checking off my to do list - those are good and worthy things! but often times it looks like the exact opposite, like we’ve done “nothing” at all- & that’s ok too. 
Our work doesn’t determine our worth. Our accomplishments doesn’t earn us God’s acceptance. 
Our value isn’t validated by our hustle. 
We are already and always loved.
WHEW! 
I needed to remember that today. You too?
