Spent the day doing nothing but reading and swimming. Yep, that'll do.
Before I finally brought the @sty@stylingmat into existence earlier this year, I never even considered buying or making a styling board. I always thought they were far too clunky and cumbersome to use, and I try to be as light on the stuff on a wedding day as possible. I usually have one camera on me and a little pouch for my film, that's it. I've never even attempt to do flat lays at weddings because I just don't have time for that. I'll admit though, my own product is making a convert out of me! I used it at our wedding a couple weeks ago and can't say I hated it 😂I didn't have to spend much time on it because it's so easy to use, so I was willing to try it when I never have been before.
Am I seriously writing a testimonial about my own product? Yep I am. I didn't make it because I wanted to use it, I made it because I saw a need for others and ended up wanting to use it myself.
OH. One more thing. If you'd like to win this ring box, sign up for @stylingmat emails through the website linked over there. You'll see how to win through our next email. And don't tell anyone I told you this, but we're going to have some pretty rad giveaways coming up soon, so if you're into flat lays, you might want to just subscribe already!
I always have so much trouble getting going in the morning. I'm unfortunately one of those people who works better at night, but I don't want to keep those dumb creative brain hours. It's a daily struggle to get things done during daylight.
This for funsies shoot was done in my driveway with @la.childs.pilates@fabfrockscharlotte
I'm obsessed with ferns. I get so excited when I see them anywhere. We were in the poconos recently where ferns abound on the forest floors, the only place I've ever seen that on the east coast, and you can bet I was excited!

It's that sort of extraordinarily hot day when I'm actually craving cool weather, and if you know me you know I hate being cold!
We took some time to be in the Poconos recently, where it was beautiful and cool and a great reprieve from the heat we had here.
I didn't story or post one thing from that week, you know why? Because I think life should be lived, not instagrammed. I tried for awhile to keep up with stories and get better at talking on camera, but I hated it. It's a massive intrusion into my actual life, and I don't really appreciate it. Constant social media posting sucks the life out of me and makes me feel anxious and annoyed. So I'll post whenever and however I want, but I will never let myself feel like I NEED to share my life with social media. I do watch and enjoy other people's stories, and so many people are just so good at being entertaining on there, but it just isn't for me, and I'm ok with that! Same goes for sharing "heart and soul" posts like this one. It's simply crazy that we now feel the pressure to do this on a daily basis with thousands of strangers. It's wonderful to connect on here, but who do you even get that deep with in real life every day?! We need to lower our standards for each other, and just enjoy some photos from time to time.
