I’ve never been afraid to stop 🛑 and start over. This time of the year I often reflect on the choices I’ve made and if Im any closer to living out the dreams I had for myself. Thankfully 2018 has been a year filled with opportunities & hard work resulting in a very fulfilling journey! 
My dreams for 2019 got a little bigger, so I plan on doing things a little differently next year! I can’t do any of it without your support of course! Thanks for always being there ❤️

Hey girl heyyyy! 👋🏼💕 I see you, fellow #bosslady. Just wanted to pop in and say you are a rock star and I have a feeling 2019 will be your best year yet.
.
I'm taking a break from the holiday busyness to wrap up a few projects and do some doodling. What's on your to-do list this week?!

A few random facts about me:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I’m an only child
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I’ve been hot air ballooning 3 times
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• One of my long time dreams is to publish a children’s book
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I was a nanny for over 6 yrs
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• My dream job is to be an in-house copywriter for an amazing company (if you know of anybody hiring, hit me up!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I don’t have a shy bone in my body, but I need time alone to recharge or I can be a real b*tch. 🤷🏾‍♀️ (Extroverted introvert?)

So excited to reveal one of my latest commissions of a great local Downtown Phoenix hot spot, @welcomediner. I had the privilege of drawing this as a wedding gift from @mm_curtin to her husband justin_t_graham. I am so excited for these two and wish them nothing but the best on their new journey together!

@johnnykeethon ‘s  cinematic photographs are the embodiment of #GregoryCrewdson school’s Enfants Terribles. Intriguing and seductive, they attract you into a world of dramatic electricity where the plot seems to be just about to twist⚡️

twenty-eighteen was a hard year for me...i was extremely hard on myself for seemingly everything. instead of being gentle and patient with myself, i pushed too hard, beat myself up for the simple things, felt a ton of self guilt and engaged in a lot more self loathing than i'd like to admit. i felt myself retreating into the depths of my own mind and crying waterfalls over things i now can't even remember. i found myself not participating in the things i truly enjoyed, not creating and doing what i loved because nothing felt worth it, and instead i spent a lot of my spare time sleeping and hiding from people. so going into twenty-ninteteen i'm promising myself one thing: MORE SELF LOVE ♥︎ i will make more time to do the things i love—read more books, take more photos, write more, do more yoga. i will not beat myself up over the small things and instead look at my faults as learning experiences within this human experience. i will practice contentment, and mindfulness; appreciating each moment for what it is, trusting that it's all a step in the right direction. twenty-ninteteen, you WiLL BE MY YEAR. #livebangs #bangsblitz
