Happy fall y’all 🍁🍂 I’m lovinggg this cooler weather we’re having here today!! What fall festivities are you guys most excited about for this year? Mine is going to the corn maze! 🌽
Vegan + paleo friendly + drooling; 🤤
Waiting on autumn temps like 🤷🏼♀️
Today may be the first official day of fall 🍁, but it's still 90 degrees in Atlanta. Strongly considering breaking out the jeans and sweaters anyway in protest. What are you most excited about this fall?!
SURRENDER TO THE FLOW⠀
Mhmm this lesson took a while to get fully and it’s still a constant lesson in integrating. ⠀
One of the biggest reasons I was stressed out of my mind back in the days was because I was trying to CONTROL everything. ⠀
I mean everything.⠀
My career ⠀
You know how depleting and exhausting it is to control everything? ⠀
It’s draining beyond belief. ⠀
When you are operating from a place of control you lose touch with the flow.⠀
Flow is where the magic happens. ⠀
Flow is where alignment is formed.⠀
Flow is where stress + burnout are alienated.⠀
But if your constantly trying to control everything you are creating an undercurrent of stress that eventually will TAKE OVER. ⠀
When we try to control every single aspect of our lives we work against the current. ⠀
Here are three ways to let go of control ASAP.⠀
1️⃣ Take inventory of what you actually need to be in charge of in your life. Do you need to make all the kids lunches? Do you need to go out for all friends birthdays? Do you need to work full time and go to school? ⠀
Often times we take on more then we can handle and we tell ourselves we need to. Take inventory of what you actually need to take on as a responsibility.⠀
2️⃣ Release - Move your body and shake off the stagnate energy. When you are operating from a place of control you tighten. Dance, shake your booty, go on a hike. Move the nervy keeping you stuck!! ⠀
3️⃣ Write a letter to giving yourself the permission to let go of control. Often times when we try to control everything it’s because we lack trust in the world and ourselves. Journal it out and give yourself the permission to let it all go. ⠀
I spent the morning at the lake with Quincy, Weston, and sweet Sebastian. Goodness my friends make perfect babies. 😍
Greens: good for the heart ✅ ⠀
Pumpkin ice cream : good for the soul ✅ ⠀
Don’t forget that while we all need healthy food & clean water to keep our bodies strong, we also need FUN, connection, joy to keep our hearts HAPPY. ⠀
This doesn’t have to look like ice cream (or any food) for you... but try to take time to connect with others this weekend!... and sometimes that’s around the dessert table. 😊 ⠀
I know fall is officially here when the local creamery serves up their homemade pumpkin🍦 🍁🎃 please & thank you. ⠀

Hi, I’m Cathy. I’m a Disney fan; It’s A Small World Is My Favorite Ride! I love to read; 99.9% of the time on my Kindle and audible. My favorite book I read this year; Girl Wash Your Face by @msrachelhollis
🌸 I am a multi-tasker who can’t watch TV without doing something! Usually on my laptop working and designing. I love my space to be organized but most days I have so many plates spinning, I’m lucky to push the button on Wall-E, our Roomba. ❤️ I’m married to my sweetheart Dave of almost 35 years. He is my biggest fan and supporter! We have 2 grown, married children; 1 boy, 1 girl…that grew into 1 man, 1 woman that this mom is SOOOO proud of! 👵 I am a new grandmother….our grandson Parker B was born in June. He truly is the most adorable boy on earth! Most days you can find me at home, working in the studio, with no makeup and my hair in a ponytail. 🙋♀️ #thisisme #nicetomeetyou #theinstagramlab #paradisepaintpartiesgifts #girlwashyourface
Monaco is just as beautiful as you’d expect it to be- we really wanted to see the casino but it was so incredibly busy, so we walked around to the back where we almost had the place to ourselves!
Counting down the days until Lauren & Kevin’s @phoenixvillefoundry
wedding when I’ll officially be back in the game! Until then, there will be a lot of diapers in my future 🙃 Going a little stir crazy over here being stuck in the house!
Who else thinks it's time for some emotional self-care!?
I've covered physical and financial care... and let me tell you: I may not do it perfectly everyday, but I know the "what" and "how" of those tiers. I know what my body needs, I know what @daveramsey
would advise, I know what to read if I get stuck.
Emotional, Relationship, Self, and Personal Growth are going to be a learning experience full of ups and downs for us all. I have zero idea what I'm doing and I'm winging it like Khaleesi's dragons🐉.
Starting tomorrow, I'm going to begin exploring emotional self-care by focusing on sensory connection, grounding myself in my environment, and experiencing things that bring me pleasure.
I've also decided that I need to start blogging again, because my captions get hella long.
Ok! I want to hear from you! What have you been doing that's self-care? Really think about it. Mindfulness, eating foods that are life giving, napping when your body says it's tired, giving back to a community, saying no. These are all examples of self-care. Lastly, what is something you want to do that you're either scared to try or keep talking yourself out of it? TELL ME (please 💁)
Hello fall!! You have been deeply anticipated for many months!! What’s your favorite part about fall??
Hello fall, my favorite season. Nice to see you again. 💕🍂
Classy & a lil' bit sassy.
These past couple months as I've worked with more and more brands I've realized the importance of understanding and truly knowing each brand on a personal level. The style they exude, the clientele they actually attract, and the clientele they hope to attract through their content. In order to create imagery that speaks for the brand while also speaking to those interested in it, my job is to get to know the babes behind the brand, the vision for the brand, the brand itself, and of course the consumers. Through truly getting to know each of these aspects I'm then able to create content in a creative, unique, on-brand way that speaks both on behalf and to those who love it most!
Love creating for one of our most beloved Boss Babes, @catherinecaninojewelry
, the epitome of classy & sassy!
It’s delivery day for these two lovebirds!!!
If you’ve ever wondered what I dream about, it looks something like this.
It’s easy to keep your eye on the prize when you know what you’re working towards (in my case, better health), but gosh darn, do I miss @five_daughters_bakery.
And pizza. Sweet pizza.
Another day out on the trails! 🏔🤙🏻
We had a chill day rock climbing, eating good food, and drinking lots of coffee yesterday.
Ready for a full day up at Glacier!
Leaning into this first day of F A L L 🍁🍃 and very much wishing the weather would catch up so I could bust out my cashmere collection already. #sweaterweather
Luckily I am freezing at all degrees below 70 so I shouldn’t have to wait too long. Anyone else feel like this year is flying by? 🙋🏻♀️ #girlgetwell #FallinLA #pebblebeach
Fall Equinox will be today Sept 22 at: 6:54 pm here on the west coast 3 hrs later of course on the East coast.
Equinox is when both the Northern and Southern hemispheres will experience an equal amount of daylight. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of fall, with daylight hours continuing to shorten until the winter solstice in December. For those south of the equator, it’s the beginning of spring.
My favorite time of year is officially here!
We are celebrating True’s 4th Birthday today which is planned to be a pool party because here in Memphis it’s still hot till the end of October.
However this year Fall decided to show up on time and it’s rainy and a cool 70 degrees. It’s a good thing I love you.
Double Tap if you ❤️ Fall! Or are you one of my “Summer 4Eva” friends? I love ya anyway 😉

Yesterday was amazing!
Janine and Greg got married and had the most beautiful September day ever! Finally got a chance to photograph a gorgeous church I’ve always admired in Southold, and then before heading to @thevineyards_li
we made it back to @treiberfarms
as a little throw back to Janine and Greg’s engagement photos! Serious magic was made and I’m feeling so grateful to have been the one to capture it all!
Welcome to fall loves! One of my favorite parts of this time of year is that, despite the flurry of activity, I always feel a compelling urge to just slow down ... enjoy the present, take a walk, sip a hot drink, read a book. Now, being the busy working mama I am, it rarely actually happens as much as I’d like ... but I try ... so here’s to slow, quiet moments ... like watching my beautiful babe sleep on a Saturday morning 💛 ... you can screenshot this image and shop it via the LIKEtoKNOW.it app ... this wreath is the Smith & Hawken one ... though I snipped all the green leaves off of it ... I wanted uniform pink (shocker, I know) 🤪 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
Culture will tell us that hope is just wishful thinking. But when our expectation is rooted in His promises, hope is the joyful anticipation of good! •
Hope rejoices before there is anything to rejoice for. •
Hope is joy before you get what you are praying for. •
Hope is built on the foundation that NOTHING I am facing caught God off guard (even if it caught me off guard). *Romans 8:28*
THE DAY HAS FINALLY COME. Happy first day of fall, y’all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s with a heavy heart, and a hung head that I bid summer farewell….SIKEEEEEE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bring on fall and all the basicness that this glorious season encapsulates.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But seriously, BYE BYE SUMMER. 👋🏻
