Not Everyone Needs to Like You

Watch // Arvo

I had some experiences a couple months back that made me feel kinda sad about myself. Comments on social media written like they would never actually be read, and hearing that someone you thought was seriously awesome, just flat out doesn't like you. I feel stupid to admit it, but the words "I don't know... I just don't like her." genuinely hurt and left me feeling confused. Some nights I laid in bed with a guilty feeling thinking: What did I do for this person to not like me? I've come to grips that no matter how nice you are to everyone, there is going to be someone who just doesn't like you. There are so many personalities in the world, and so its inevitable that some will just not jive. It's not realistic to be liked by everyone, so don't get worked up about it. Spread kindness to everyone but quit trying so hard to please them all. Take time to nurture those relationships that really matter, and stand confident with who you are. :)

Piper and Scoot

I am so thrilled to partner with my favorite online boutique Piper and Scoot for this video collaboration! In my opinion, everything on their site is swoon worthy. The outfits in this video just went live today, so hustle over before everything sells out (which they usually do)!

Funny story: Prior to this shoot, I went to Piper and Scoot (I love when I accidentally rhyme hehe) to pick up these outfits. I got out of the car, and started slipping on the ice and caught myself thinking 'Man, that was a close call...' then suddenly, BAM! I was flat on my back seeing stars -- I don't think I've ever landed on my tailbone so hard before! I started to cry hahah and crawled the rest of the way to the doorstep. Kylee, my friend and owner of P&S, was shocked to answer the door to me just laying there! Hahah! Now I'm seriously wondering if I should invest in one of those Life Alert buttons ;) That. Hurt. So. Bad.

New Years Resolutions

My new years resolution is to spend my time where it really counts. I wonder how much more I could have accomplished in 2014 with those wasted hours I spent on social media... I've decided to give my family more of my undivided attention, and only take on projects that are really worth my time. I'm excited to see what 2015 has in store!

Happy New Year!

This Is My Year

Cozying up in my Shine Project shirt thinking about 2015! New goals, more dreams to chase & a little family to watch grow. Go to their Instagram to see the cause these shirts benefit, and use code "devine10" for 10% off on their site.

God Jul

One of the best parts of having a baby is that they get no say in what you dress them in, right!? Ha! Although I hope that when Lucy's older she can appreciate this little bunad and her Norwegian heritage. My grandparents immigrated to the states from Norway, and they have instilled so many awesome traditions in all of us. My whole life we've celebrated Christmas Eve at my grandparents all dressed up for a big Norwegian feast, and I'm so excited to pass on these traditions to my children! They are so magical and special to me. I'm so thankful for family this holiday season and for my savior Jesus Christ! Merry Christmas to you and yours. Hugs!

Dear Santa...

A few things I'm asking Santa for this year.
...hint hint ;)

Are You My Mother?

I think Lucy just hit the stage where she really recognizes me as her mother. I literally can't stop laughing to myself as she follows me around the house jabbering "Mamamamama". Isn't it true that it's the simplest things in life that bring so much happiness?
