Recognize those two beautiful women? It's the @shooktwins and they are headed for Winona to headline at Live @ the Levee on June 24! 🎤🎻❤️ Check them out today - they took over the @boatsandbluegrass Instagram page and are having a little fun posting over there. The party at Levee Park Sunday goes from 1-10 p.m., complete with craft beer, food trucks, and loads of music. See you there 😃👍

Today, I did a hard thing. I was anxious, nervous, scared, excited, wanted to back out, kept telling myself I wasn’t qualified, etc. etc. I’m pretty sure every negative thought that could cross my mind did this morning. .
.
But I told myself...You need to do this. You are qualified. You totally got this. I prayed hard and then I did it. And it went WAY better than expected! This is the same with my workout today... I struggle with upper body strength, and dread anything that has to do with arms....it was hard, but I did it! ✅
.
.
The course of life isn’t determined by the things you know you can do. Its determined by whether or not you try the things that are hard. . .
God didn’t create us in his image to be just mediocre. He created you and me to be more than what we were the day before. He created us to be better, to learn, to achieve, to empower, and to overcome. It doesn’t matter if this is about fitness or something else in life. .
You can do it.
You CAN do hard things.
.
.
.
We were MADE to do hard things. Believe in yourself. You are so much stronger than you think. 💪🏼

Happy Summer Solstice! Our signature “pinks” have been replaced with these cheery “yellows” did today only. And, really...what can be better than cupcakes with edible sunglasses and beach balls? 😉☀️

Thirsty Thursday is back! Stop by and grab a Cherry Limeade or ⬅️ an Over-the-Blue-Moon (beer) cupcake. Either one will quench your thirst (or rather, hunger pains) today. 😉

I’ve had the lyrics from the hymn “It is well” in my head lately. I love the line about peace like a river. There’s nothing more peaceful or refreshing that sitting in quiet beside a river. I grew up on the river and it’s like returning home to a simpler time.
So much amazingness has happened in the last two months. Lumos Images has been busier than ever, and I’ve connected with amazing people in the wedding industry and small businesses in the area.
I’m grateful for all of the opportunities I’ve had and that I get to do what I love with awesome people. So grateful. But honestly? I’m exhausted. So tired.
Tony said awhile back that I’d get burnt out if I kept going at this rate and didn’t take care of myself. Don’t you hate when the people you love most are always right? 😉
It’s hard to prioritize taking care of yourself when you want to work all of the tine because you love what you do! But I’ve been eating junk, not working out and not sleeping enough. I want to get better at taking care of my self!
What’s your favorite self care routine and how do you stick to it??? I’d love to hear it and be inspired. Comment below!

Took the title as the “navigator” on our little trek so on my “breaks” I’m getting in a little coach work 🙌🏼 It seems unbelievable how flexible this job can be! & to be honest it never feels like working. 🙏🏼
I’m able to fit this passion into my busy life working a FT job, being a FT cop wife & fur mom! 👍🏼
When you have the heart for something, it just all works out ♥️

Summer in Minnesota is the BEST, but it's usually the busiest season for all of us. (Maybe tied with the holiday season...) For those of us who are introverts, it doesn't take long before we have had enough of the traffic, crowds, hot weather, and sense of obligation to be outside and DO ALL THE THINGS, and our energy buckets are just plain empty.⠀
.⠀
Today, we're sharing our ideas for summer fun for introverts. And we should know what we're talking about since both of us are introverts to our core!⠀
.⠀
Here's to taking care of ourselves, even and especially during this busy summer season, and doing some fun things that refill our energy bucket. Which is your favorite idea? #linkinbio

This is my cup this morning in Minnesota. Up at 4 am to head to airport for my final leg of my trip to get to Indianapolis. • I ❤️ coffee
• I ❤️ to play
• I ❤️ being with friends
• I ❤️ adventures • I ❤️ Life

With this said I am drinking coffee out of an awesome mug, with a friend that has become a huge part of my life (all because of this coaching biz) going to a place where we will be surrounded by more coaches than I can imagine. What an adventure will be had over the next 4 days. Stay tuned..... #minnesotalove #coffeeblackplease #adventureswithfriends #indianapolisindiana #neverbeen #coachliferocks

Don’t mistake our tired eyes for unhappy hearts because even a 3:30am wake up call & an 8.5 hour drive to Indy can not stop the EXCITEMENT WE HAVE! 💕
Indy, we are ready for ya ✨

Do you struggle with trying to be a Mom AND trying to be yourSELF?
.
No matter what kind of Mom you are, we can all agree that we would do anything for our children- but with day in and day out of being a Mom, we can lose who we are as an individual. .
I can remember sitting down trying to fill out my “hobbies” on a questionnaire. I COULDN’T COME UP WITH ANY!
“Mom” was literally all I was. 🙈
.
I was no longer that strong, confident woman I had once been. I was just...Mom. .
But instead of letting that hold me down and hold me back, I forced myself to take care of ME. I chose to make MYSELF a priority. .
I was also blessed with surrounding myself with so many amazing women in this business that remind me who I am OUTSIDE of motherhood. .
If you are craving to find a “hobby” that can open so many other opportunities for you, then it’s time we finally talked!!

Drop into my DM’s or head to the link in my bio. ❤️❤️❤️

Wanna know the secret to meaningful engagement photos??? Don’t look to Pinterest for inspiration- Look at your relationship! How can you make the photos unique so they represent your relationship? The focus of adventure sessions is on making you comfortable in front of the camera and creating photos that tell the story of your relationship. Logan and Nick went to Lake Maria state park with their sweet dog Piper because that’s where he proposed. Some couples go to their favorite bar down the street, others do the photos at their home. They key us to make it your own! 💛 #lumoscouple #adventuresession #brittanyspaniel

When it comes from the heart it means the most ☺️ adult Samantha got little Sammi these today - and YA DAMN RIGHT it feels really really nice 🙏🏻 self love for me today looked like a whole lot of veggies, prepping for new evolution and opportunity in my life, and spending 5 extra bucks at @traderjoes for these beauties - and it feels like great love. Sometimes anxiety is best crushed with small actions.

This past week, I've been phone-less. I repeat. I haven't had my own phone for over a week now. IT'S a millennial's WORST FREAKIN NIGHTMARE in an age of selfies & instastories😃

But I've been surviving. I've actually been lovin the fact that I don't have a phone (weird huh..) It's pushed me to stay completely present in things that I'm doing and it has given me a fresh perspective on life. 🌻
Like how nothing is truly urgent & that we can survive without constantly being connected with the noise! 💫
I never thought I’d say this but I think doing monthly a #socialmediadetox is must for me now.
📱
But don't get it twisted.. I'm really excited to have my fully functioning phone back because I need my must have apps in my life again. In today's newest blog post, I'm sharing with you my top 5 favorite apps and why you should get em too! 😙
Link in bio will bring your sweet self over there!

Went to an amazing little winery in Red Wing. MN. I had this delicious salmon and asparagus wood-fired pizza 🍕. Beautiful weather sampling wine 🍷 and cider 🍺 .
The staff were so friendly and fun! If you look closely you can see the little 🍇.

Leaving on a jet plane!! ✈️ .
I never expected I would be flying today- two years after having a concussion that left me with debilitating pain that wouldn’t let me leave a dark room. .
I also didn’t expect to be flying to an even that I earned a FREE trip to! 🙌🏼 (I just had to do my $h*t and continue doing my job!!)
.
I can’t wait to share so much with you while I’m gone. Be sure to watch my stories for updates and FUN 🔥 the rest of the week!
.
By the way, I MAY or MAY NOT have overpacked my bag and had to repack it 3 times...🙈!

Nature photography is a major part of my anxiety/depression management. It's my mindfulness practice, my meditation on beauty, my North Star, my humility, my joy, and my expression of gratitude. Embracing the value of nature photography, "Photography for Life," came into being.
..
..
"Photography for Life" is a series of workshops that connect basic photographic principles with essential self-care practices. This is not a high-tech professional photo class, but an exploration of how to compose your images and your life with greater intention - using whatever camera you have available. ..
..
These workshops are currently being supported by Oxbow Park in Byron, MN and Eagle Bluff Skills School @eaglebluffmn in Lansboro, MN. I'll begin teaching at Eagle Bluff this late Fall/early Winter and I'd like to get things going at Oxbow late Summer/early Fall. I've also begun convos for 2019 w/ Quarry Hill in Rochester, MN. Though I haven't yet reached out, I've got @silverwoodpark on my radar, too. ..
..
Does anyone else have any suggestions for #minnesota parks or sites that may be interested in holding space for photo-care workshops? Or do you know anyone who may want to organize a private group for a deeper/more personal conversation? Send me a DM. *

I had the pleasure of learning more about @nordicwaffles last night... They're going to be at the @mnstatefair this year, and I couldn't be more excited about it! (See more deets about the event in my stories today.) 😊
.
Nordic Waffles are uniquely tender and fluffy - thinner and more crepe-like than those we typically think of. They use several different batters to pair with the sweet & savory flavors they've created for their Minnesota State Fair menu! (Swipe 👈 to see some of the waffle "sandwiches" that you'll be able to choose from!)
.
We were able to meet Stine Aasland - the delightful force behind Nordic Waffles - and hear her story about coming to America and making her business dreams come true right here in Minnesota. I'm so excited for her!! ❤️
.
And I'm so thankful to the amazing folks at @leebranding for inviting me and some friends to share in the Nordic Waffles celebration. I absolutely can't wait to get in line for more waffles at #thegreatmngettogether this summer!! They've got waffles perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, and they've even got some special beverages on their menu. DO make sure to check them out at the Fair this year... you won't be disappointed!! 🙌
