OCD probs: I think I need to fire my camera man 📸 I made the collage with the original pictures and I just could NOT post them! 🙈 You see that picture frame? It was at a different angle in every single photo 😨 So I fixed it, but now the base board does not match 😥 • Anyways, here are my Before photos for the program you will see me completing over the next 8 weeks! I’m beyond excited for it, and cannot wait to see where I am at once it is complete ☺️ • I’ve had a lot of ups and downs over the last couple of years, but I am super thankful for everyone’s support! 💕 Remember, we all start somewhere! Don’t compare your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 74! You may look at this photo and think that you would love to be where I am! Trust me, you totally can be! 🙌🏻 You just have to be willing to take the first step. From there, every before photo gets you a tiny bit closer to your end goal! ☺️
So if you’re tuning in for the first time in a while, I’ve recently moved to Richmond, Virginia - or #rva as the locals call it. 😎 We’re not settled in yet (we were in limbo for two months in San Diego, so what’s another couple of weeks? 🤷🏻♀️ …Lol), but this week we’ll find out if we get our lease. Praying to God we get it because it’s a pretty sweet spot and embodies everything I’m looking for in a new home. 🏠 Similar to my last two months in San Diego, it’s easy to feel like my life is put on hold, …but I’m getting by. 🙂 I know that God has a plan for everything. So lately, I’ve taken this opportunity to be hyperaware of my feelings and reactiveness to on-going spontaneity (… because how can you plan for the unexpected???). . . Even though I’ve lived an entrepreneur-ish life for most of my 20s, moving from the west coast for the first time in my adult life has unlocked a completely indescribable, new experience well outside of my comfort zone. I admit that I feel like a stretched rubber band just dying to be released. 😖 I know I won’t be the same once I relax, but I just want to relax now… you know? Anyway, of all the pictures I’ve taken on our trip so far (which you can still see under my Instagram Highlights), I’ve decided to pick these two for today’s post. 📸 Why? Because when I can grab onto something familiar, I’ll grab it. In this case, it’s @officialpandaexpress and @stuggithedog. 🥤🐶 . . Now, I’m not asking to go back to my old life. I’m just… asking for some slack I guess. 😕 Well, DM me if you’re bored. Even the feeling of familiarity helps me stay grounded. 🌲
How did I not know about this place before?! 🤪 Stopped at @modpizza with the fam today to grab some dinner. They have the yummiest thin crust and it’s #fired. Artisan-style pizzas and salads are individually sized, made on demand, and ready in just minutes. Pick as many toppings and the price stays the same. Very wallet friendly. And ooh, we finished ours off with some pesto drizzle. YUM! They have a Gluten free crust too.
