This right here is why I love working to make our house a home.🏡
It’s more than paint choices and furniture arrangements. Making a home is about thoughtfully creating spaces that we can play in, relax in, be our full selves in. It’s about more than those four walls, it’s about a feeling💕. I want to design a home that inspires and fuels our days. A place free from stress and worry. A simplified, carefree, life giving place to call home.🏡
Friends, don’t wait to create the home you love. It’s a process, it doesn’t happen overnight, but it’s so worth it. Don’t wait until you have more money or your kids get older or you have a family or you move into your forever home. Be resourceful, creative, and thoughtful about how you turn your space into an organized, stress-free, beautiful place to call home. .

What colors work well together 🎨
It’s been 8 months since I’ve started my official photography business @mckenziemcneilphoto ‼️Since then I’ve had the opportunity to take people’s graduation photos, senior photos, maternity photos, family photos, couple photos, engagement photos, & I’ve booked 3 weddings! //
I’ve had to remind myself along the way that it’s ok to want more for my business, but that it is also necessary to not beat myself up for not being at the level of other photographers who have been doing this far longer than I have. //
My camera has allowed me so much creative freedom that had been missing from my life for too long; I’m excited to see where it takes me next 🖤 @mckenziemcneilphoto //
And yes, that’s the peanuts gang on my shirt 🤩
Is there anything more calming than being around a body of water 🌊 (I don’t think so!) It isn’t always smooth sailing ...but every life experience brings memorable moments that are part of the journey. ⚓️ Sometimes you just have to stop trying to navigate through it and let the tide take you where you are meant to be.
Here’s a new painting I made with #graphite, #ink, and #aquarelle on watercolor paper. #justletitbe #trusttheprocess #watercolorart #conniesutera
Meemaw 👀 is that you! Damn can't wait for old age when I'm farming my bees and letting my sons in the background take care of the rest.

Them: “yeah it’s casual just come in whatever”
Just a lil’ reminder 👏🏼 I have had to pull the reigns back on collaborations and my blog work — I couldn’t keep up there for a while. It was hard for me to admit, but with the new puppy and law school starting in just a few weeks, I really needed a breather. As a tenacious worker gal, I always feel the need to be doing something; I love blogging truly and continue to work hard at it every single day, but I def needed to ease up on my contractual obligations because I knew I couldn’t meet my standard OR the brands’ standards with my schedule rn. I’ve also been more time/effort into my e-course lately 🙌🏼 so new collaborations are on the back burner for now. Do you also find it hard to admit sometimes when you’re spreading yourself thin

I’m my own damn #wcw YUP! That’s right! How can we celebrate 🎉 others if we don’t allow ourselves to celebrate our own accomplishments and wins 💪🏽Just because you don’t make every gain, or win public doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate them and keep them for yourself! Not everything needs to be shared. Save time for you. The most important relationship you’ll ever have on this planet 🌎 is the one you have with yourself! 💋

Stay close to the people who feel like sunlight 🌞 One of my favorite activities in the summer is piling the kids into the car and exploring our community. Having not been raised here, I realized shortly after moving, that to make myself feel more at home I needed to find spots. My own spots. My favorite park to take a walk, my favorite lake to cast stones, and my favorite bench to sit and eat ice cream. Slowly but surely I started to find these spots. Before I knew it the new town started to feel a lot like home. But my adventures haven't stopped. We stumbled across this little old church and I knew I wanted to take pictures. Developed around 1941, it has not been updated and will likely be torn down at some point. But as I stood there and looked at the quaint church I could imagine what it stood for all those years ago. How farmers came from all around to bend a head, neighbors prayed together, checked in on each other and shared food. And now here it stood, like a spiritual grandparent. Imagine if it could talk, the stories it would tell.
let’s remember that it is not an outfit, career, or amount of passport stamps that embody our humanity at a core level. look in instead of out more. our joy and peace is within us as we are and have nothing to do with possessions or social status. it’s so easy to forget who we all are until we take away veils that make up our identities. you are a human. I am a human. beyond that, we are a radiant souls. currently reminding myself to nurture the shine of my soul just as I do the shine of my teeth or my car (though I could seriously use a car wash if we’re being real)
Maybe I can't wither or wilt⠀
because I'm not a flower⠀
maybe I'm still just a seed⠀
waiting to sprout into something beautiful..⠀
something powerful enough to take over you⠀
or perhaps I'm already⠀
a garden in full bloom⠀
a gem hidden in a perpetual spring..⠀
maybe I've already enraptured you⠀
Tell me world, do I already have you⠀
wrapped around my finger

When the guest room doubles as a @wearekindreds staging area! 😜 Our next Kindreds Night is coming up on the 26th, so Team Aesthetics is in full-on prep mode over here, working to create a beautiful and inspiring space for women to meet with Jesus that night!❤️❤️❤️
Should have the first layers of paint finished up on 44 canvases today. Then the really fun part begins tomorrow....adding some depth and dimension with additional layers of paint. This is when I get to wear both my aspiring artist hat and my event designer hat all on the same day! Grateful that the Lord has allowed me both the ability to serve in this capacity, as well as the health to do so!❤️🙌🏻
In case you missed it in my Stories last night, we got great news that my MRI was clear and everything looked good! And the levels in my lab work were all stable to improving! So we recheck labs again in a month, but otherwise, we’re all clear! Praise the Lord!! So grateful for His faithfulness in seeing us through yet another scary challenge.🙌🏻
