the best mornings are spent in the outer banks ☕️🌵💕

My little visitor is hanging out getting a bit of sun after the rain. I will call him Holiday since he is now my roommate at the studio.

✨✨WHAT AN HONOR to be part of the launch team for this new book!!!!!!✨✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For years, I've been SO inspired by @EmilyLey and her heart. I love her entrepreneur work ethic, her heart for motherhood, and her vision for a more SIMPLIFIED life... something we chased and began to live out over five years ago when we packed our life in a Uhaul, took a HUGE leap of faith and started a new chapter on the Outer Banks of North Carolina🌊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have her other two books *Grace, Not Perfection* and *A Simplified Life* and it's probably pretty obvious by now I'm obsessed with her Simplified Planner. I'm a proud affiliate and cheerleader for her company and now I get to READ THIS BEFORE IT RELEASES!!!! I've already started and I was in tears right away, good ones, the kind that inspire you to focus on what matters most. @EmilyLey you have been and continue to be a strong inspiration in my life and I am so grateful to be on this launch team!💕🎉🤩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've got this book pre-ordered from Amazon already and if you want to do the same - there's a link there in my profile!!🤓🤓🤓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #whenlessbecomesmore #WLBM #emilyley #simplified #obx #outerbanks #obxmom #outerbanksmoms
Рай🌴или яд ☠️? 🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴 Прошлым годом я провела 4 месяца в Америке на острове 🏝 из которых 3 я работала.😟 🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴 🔆Перечислим плюсы жизни на острове 🏝 ✅жить на острове 😹 звучит круто, по началу мне нравилась сама идея что я на острове 😻 ✅вокруг только #океан 🌊, бесконечные #волны и нескончаемый прекрасный шум воды😄 ✅ бесконечные #пляжи 🏖 с золотистым песком ✅ нереально чистый воздух ☁️ ✅легко передвигаться так как все относительно не далеко ✅САМЫЕ ПРЕКРАСНЫЕ РАССВЕТЫ 🌅 И ЗАКАТЫ 🌅 я видела там как солнце буквально тонет в волнах океана, это запомнилось мне на всегда😄😄☀️ 🔆Приступим к минусам ❌ты оторван от земли, то есть ты не видишь цивилизации, городов, нет общественного транспорта, ты застрял 🤦🏼♀️ ❌я работала с 9:00 до 23:00 🕚, очевидно у меня практически не было времени ходить и наслаждаться золотистыми пляжами 😢 ❌погода меняется каждый час, час солнечно, ☀️час дождливо ⛈и т.д. Дожди могли идти пару дней подряд ⛈доходило до того что первые этажи домов были на половину под водой. ❌ ураганы 🌪 Это обычно сентябрь месяц. Никто не знает на сколько сильный может быть ураган поэтому обычно предпочитают проводить принудительную эвакуацию. Нас эвакуировали дважды. Было страшновато😱 В целом жизнь на острове не плоха если ты не любишь городскую суету, быстрый ритм жизни, пробки и злых людей. ❗️❗️❗️Единственный совет Приобретите машину🚖 перед тем как ехать жить на #остров 😁 не застряньте там без возможности выехать Вы когда либо жили на острове, пишите ⬇️ 🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴 #usa #америка #американскийстиль #остров #пляж #лето #солнце #жара #работа #america #americalife #americandream #otherlife #newlife #newcountry #enjoylife #liveyourlife
My first home is a total loss.... thankfully everyone got out ok. I had renters staying there if you need a good renter let me know they were the best
This is gonna be a long one! Tomorrow is the very difficult day of October 21st. The day I got the news that I had lost one of the very best friends I have ever had. My battle buddy, my friend, my fellow veteran, but put simply, my brother. He was a kind, giving, joyful, lighthearted, loving man that spread nothing but happiness and laughter. Which he is still doing to this day. The last gift Gary gave me was The Bassi family. It only took a few moments of meeting his sister Christi to realize where not only that love and joy came from, but also his toughness, his drive, and his heart. From the moment I met her I knew she was a very special person, and she has so lovingly welcomed me into their family. Something that I cherish. His nieces call me “Uncle Jake” and hearing Paula and Roxie say that always humbles me and makes me say a silent little thank you to Gary. They’re such amazing girls and it’s easy to see where it comes from. Paula unfortunately isn’t in the picture because she was playing her soccer game, and I was able to watch Roxie play as well, and that girl has spirit, let me tell ya! Also not in this picture is Anthony, Christie’s husband. A man that I respect as much as I respect anyone walking on 2 feet. An absolute meat eater, a truly elite level special operations shooter in the USCG MSRT! The man has a mind of steel, filled with so much knowledge. But he also has a heart of gold and anytime I’ve needed him he’s never even hinted at turning me away. Anthony is truly a good man, a man with high character and integrity. I’m honored to call him my brother and I’ll always be at the ready to have his 6! It’s truly an amazing feeling to know this family and truly feel like a part of it. Gary will always live, through me. Through what he’s taught me and what he’s given me. I was lucky to be his friend and his brother and I’ll never forget the times we had together. The good, bad, struggle, hard times, happy times, and everything in between. If you ever need a good laugh, just ask me to tell you any story involving Gary Lawrence, and I promise you’ll leave better for hearing just a piece of who that man was. I’ll love you forever brother and I miss you

𝙄’𝙑𝙀 𝙁𝙄𝙉𝘼𝙇𝙇𝙔 𝘿𝙀𝘾𝙄𝘿𝙀𝘿 𝙏𝙊 𝙂𝙊 𝙋𝙍𝙊 💄💋 Congratulations to the new happy couple, A.J. and Gwenita 💕🏳️🌈 This was such a beautiful ceremony with so much heart and love all around you and thank you for letting me be a small part of it. Doing makeup for myself and others has been a secret/not-so-secret of mine since high school and I’ve definitely made some questionable decisions in my earlier stages (as we all did), i’ve finally found my wings to fly out and pursue my dream, so i’m learning and getting ready to be licensed to further perfect my craft and that means that I will be booking more events for an affordable rate and if you want to see more of what i do, i’ll be uploading videos of my makeup on this page, on my facebook and also on my youtube channel coming soon 😊 I wouldn’t have had the courage to do this if it weren’t for the encouragement of sooo many friends and family and without the inspiring motivation i’ve recently received from my pastor. I love doing this, it’s something i know i’m talented at and i’m not going to be afraid to reach a dream anymore. If you’d like to inquire about an event please DM me wherever you know to contact me, we can even set up a facetime and do a consultation that way, just let me know. I appreciate the support and the love from all of you, keep an eye out for future looks from me 😊😘 . . . . #makeupartist #amateur #wedding #weddingmakeup #blackmakeup #757mua #757makeupartist #chesapeakemua #norfolkmua #makeup #blackradiance #smashbox #beauty #africanbeauty #bridallooks #bridalmakeup #vabeachmua #glam #naturalglam #naturalglow

Already reminiscing of our special day yesterday. This time yesterday we were standing here with our closest loved ones by our side and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. We are both incredibly grateful for the amount of love, support and understanding we have received during this special time in our life. Super excited to spend this lifetime with my best friend 🍯 🥰
I am SO THANKFUL to @wendyzookphotography for these images! Addie, Zach and their parents know that everyone's story matters. I LOVE that the entire family gets to WEAR this message! Thank you @allshewrotenotes for the handwritten logo and thank you @Bonfire for allowing nonprofits to raise funds this way. What a gift! We have RELAUNCHED our last campaign and these are available again for 12 more days at the link in profile!!!!!!! :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #homelesslookslike

Was going to wait for the professional photos to post anything to Instagram but this picture of my beautiful wife Zoe and my beautiful niece Adelyn might be my favorite I've seen. I'm a very, very lucky man.

Wedding weekend with the boys🔥
Today it’s windy and rainy, as bands from #tropicalstormnestor hit the #obx . I’m missing the warm, sunny days of summer! ☀️ . . I’m finishing so many bags, starting on others, drinking all the coffee, listening to #TheTestaments by @therealmargaretatwood (SOO GOOD!)...and attempting to make #tomyum soup for dinner. 👌☕️☔️ #sewingsunday #momentswithsunday
Probably by unpopular opinion but I’m going to say it anyway. Winter OBX is better than Summer OBX.
Love this picture! 💕
View from the roof.
Girls weekend success! @perfectyear experienced her first festival (so glad I could be there), hung out with my awesome in-laws and spread some love through knitted flowers. @mustangmusicfest @mustangrockroast you guys made the day great! Everyone needs to see @thejudychops live, you will not be disappointed! Dancing so much I forgot to get a picture of @galaxydynamite #mustangfest #girlsweekendplusnick #knittedfordays #lovetheNCmusicvibe #cantwaittoseemyhusbandthough
A couple of pics from my day trip to the #OBX , was great to be near the ocean for a few hours. Next stop was @obxbrewingstation for some lemongrass ale and #oktoberfest celebrations (they make their pretzels in house 🥨🍺). #northcarolina #outerbanks #saltlife #beachbum #surf
