Healing & Finding Peace


Woo, this week has been a tough one. A close family friend passed away unexpectedly & it broke our hearts. Other sad things have happened, too! All within a few days of each other & it has been hard. I ended up losing my vision & getting a migraine at the end of the week. I think it was emotionally induced. 

My head is feeling better now, but we are still praying and trying to find peace with the different things that have happened. One thing is for sure- that God is in control. The most we can do, is to keep doing our best, Trust in the Lord, and to focus on loving & helping others. 

My mom, sister, & I had a girl’s trip planned this weekend, and it couldn’t have been better timed. We healed this weekend through laughing together, praying together, sitting on the beach watching the ocean, loving each other, and just being together. We know we will continue to heal and find peace!

How do you heal & find peace?

Black Tap


So…if we are being completely honest, Black Tap is the reason was dreamt this whole trip up. If you haven’t checked out their IG, go now. ?????? They have the biggest, yummiest burger… But their shakes are on a whole nother planet, design-wise. 

I got the cookie shake and Linnea got the sweet & salty shake. They are the most photogenic shakes out there. We really should have gotten the cotton candy one, too, because that one is stunning. We got there an hour before it opened on a Monday morning and there was a line. So if you go, go early to get seated right away. Also, these puppies were $15 a pop, but so worth it for the gram. ?

Also, for those who care- I got my maxi at Forever 21 and Linnea got hers at H&M. We were comfortable walking around in them all day because they weren’t too hot.

Oh, & in the last pic, we are at my friend, Chelsea’s office which overlooks Time Square. She is kind of a boss. ? I hope you like our pics!

Texas Hair

Here in Texas, everything is bigger… including our hair. So I had a little fun doing some big hair. I hope you like my silly tutorial, too. ??? (Apparently you can’t view it on mobile, so here’s the link!)

When I think of Texas, I think bling, boots, country music, horses, rodeo, southern hospitality & summer nights. And while it is much more than this, this is what I love about Texas.

Anyways, try out the extra hair volume & you, too, can be rodeo ready. ?????

XOXO,
