Music makes the moments of our life mean more. If we like it or not songs become the soundtracks of our lives. As a dancer I love some songs for the single fact that I can really release my feelings through dancing to them. Some are memories intertwined with parts of my childhood. Others bring me back to high school, or Paris, or to people we know. 

What are the songs that have influenced you good or bad? 

 

  • Mat Kearney - Air I Breathe
  • Rend Collective - Free As A Bird
  • Shawn Mendes - Stitches
  • Disclosure Ft. Sam Smith - Omen (Radio Edit)

New Look

AnnouncementsEmily TuckerComment

So I haven't been writing on my blog.. but I have been writing and working on content behind the scenes during the past 6 months. Also hopefully the most obvious thing I have worked on is updating the look & feel of my blog, which hadn't been changed in 5 years. Shoot I've gone through so many changes plus 2 kids since then. It was long overdue to represent the true me. 

Life update

Emily TuckerComment

I stopped writing completely a few months ago.. Somewhere between having two adorable kids 3 & under, moving, birthdays and going back to work I stopped and now I want it back as a regular part of life. I believe that through writing honestly we learn about ourselves and can help grow to be better people. 

I know I'm not the greatest writer but I'm a great reader and the words of so many writers have changed me and how I think about life, love and everything in between. I want their wisdom & influence in me to show and share that with others now. 

Reflecting on My Style

Emily TuckerComment

With moving to our new place in the next week I have been thinking a lot about design and my style. So it was a great fit when One Kings Lane emailed me with their Reflect Your Style project, centering on their beautiful mirror collection right now. I love getting their emails because they always have a mix of everything home but lots of different styles. My personal fave is when they have a shop open of things from France cause I always want to be back there. 

I love keeping a relaxed vibe to our home but mixing in unique pieces & textures that are easy to clean. I might also be obsessed with prints, especially IKAT. Just don't ask how many striped shirts I own cause that robe fits in nicely with my clan of striped & patterned clothing. With more space in our bedroom without Zach's crib in it I might actually have room for a vanity area, I can dream at least. 

Products used: Mirror (similar style), Desk, Stool, 3 Dispensers, & Robe

The past few months have been simply amazing, even with the trials we've faced recently... 

  • We are moving to a bigger place, which is amazing but they keep changing the move in date...
  • Zach is now 1! Waiting to have his party till after we move. He is such a sweet little boy with lots of hair. He's had 4 haircuts already! 
  • Hayden is silly, thoughtful and definitely going through a growth spurt, which seems to make her really grumpy & emotional sometimes. 
  • I turned 27! Started off my birthday weekend with a car accident but finished with great times with my family. I know its not normal but I love getting older.
  • I hosted a bridal shower for my best friend Hannah and it went well & was special to me and with all that is going on right now that was all I could ask for. My mom helped host and she was so happy to do that because she loves Hannah and knows how important she is to me & our family. 
  • The same day of the shower the kiddos were also dedicated at church. Was wonderful, long overdue and we love the meaning of dedicating our family to the Lord. 
  • We've had really fun times of fellowship the past 6 months at our new-old church. Ignited our old friendships back up and they are on fire. I became saved at that church and it has brought me back to being even more centered on Christ. 
  • I'm slowly working on my fitness & health and am seeing really great results and even better I'm feeling so much better with way more energy. Next month is gonna be big since I will be doing a joint PiYo challenge group with Michelle. 
  • Still slowly working on changing the blog to something fresher. It is desperately needed and why I haven't been writing as much.
