Last night’s salted caramel tart. I could spend hours swooshing that chocolate topping, something so meditative about silky melted chocolate.
Recipe was good but not great....I can do better. Will make sure to share it when it is ready 😉
TGIF friends, have a great weekend. .
You didn’t think we’d miss the opportunity for a celebratory 1 MILLION FOLLOWERS balloon pic, did you? Our wonderful team surprised us with these and I’m a puddle of rainbow tears. We’d have no followers, and no company, if each and every one of them didn’t work around the clock alongside us. Thank you Jamie, Sumner, Shaina, Susan, Liz, Nick & Nicole!!! 🌈🎈#thehomeedit
A few days ago, someone commented on one of my posts saying, “You are the reason true anorexics are terrified of recovery.”
It was one of the most hurtful things anyone has ever said to me, & while I’m fully recovered, it pierced through me. It made me think of how I used to say similar things to myself when I was sick. It made me feel like my ED history wasn’t valid. I remembered that while I accept my body, there are many people in our thin-obsessed society who don’t. I remembered first starting recovery and saying to myself, “I can recover, but I can’t go over x weight.” I thought of how if I knew I was going to be the size I am now back when I was sick, it would’ve sent me into a tailspin. & that’s bc I had false ideas about bodies & health & worth & happiness.
Another thing that contributed is that ED treatment can be fatphobic. We tell sufferers that recovery won’t make them fat, & we talk about “feeling fat” in recovery spaces w/o breaking down why we shouldn’t fear fat.
Fat isn’t a bad word. It’s a descriptor. Yes, I’m fat, & that’s completely okay.
Much of my young life was filled w/ false messaging that demonized fat & convinced me that you could see someone’s health by looking at them. People are afraid of becoming fat bc they see how fat people are treated. You can’t know someone’s health based on their appearance, & going further, all people deserve respect regardless of their health. You wouldn’t disrespect a thin person bc they have asthma or chronic pain or some other health issue, so why do we do this to fat people? We assume that health issues happen bc of someone’s size, when most of the time, they don’t. This leads to unethical, ineffective medical treatment that keeps people from finding health. All people are worthy regardless of their health status.
I’m proud that while that comment hurt, it didn’t rock my journey. I’m living a multidimensional life, free from ED behaviors & thoughts. I’m appreciating my body for how resilient it is & how much it went through to get me here. Think before you speak, and work to make this world a safe place for people in all bodies bc clearly there’s still so much work to do.
In 2 days will be two months that I had my baby 🤗 My body is doing a great job so far and I am now ready to do the next steps in order to rock it this summer 💪🏼😜 I am going to start a 2 weeks + 2 weeks diet this Monday. I am a little bit nervous about milk supplies; since I am exclusively breast feeding I want to keep them hight, but we’ll see... I will keep you updated! 😉 Wish me good luck! 🍀 ~~~~~~~ In due giorni saranno due mesi precisi che ho partorito 🤗 Il mio corpo ha fatto progressi pazzeschi senza troppo impegno da parte mia, ma adesso sono pronta a fare i prossimi passi per tornare super in forma prima di questa estate! 💪🏼😜 Da lunedì inizierò una dieta di 2 settimane (+2). Sono solo un po’ nervosa per il fatto che sto allattando, ma vediamo... vi terrò aggiornati ! 😉 Nel frattempo auguratemi buona fortuna! 🍀 #gettingreadyforsummer#bikinibodyguide#postpartumbody

We’ll also have games (did somebody say... dodgeball?), partner boulder problems and a sick light display by our main man, @lightingthewaysoutheast . Let’s get this party started! See you guys on Friday!
“I say the things that they say are better left unsaid, but I think I’m better off for it”...Wrote a new one today...one of those cathartic, maybe only I can relate to songs?? Here’s Misfit. Pre-edit/rewrite. Swipe right for chorus (My fave part) love days like this💜
People look at your success but don’t know what you’ve gone through to get there. •
Through many failures, trials, name calling, and loss; I would fall. Sometimes I fell harder than I would have liked to. But one thing I knew was I had a Heavenly Father that gave me a calling and I had to dust myself off and keep running the race. I am thankful to where it has led me. There is still much more to do and I am excited about new ventures. •
I came across this picture that was taken in 2004. It was me staying in an abandoned dorm room. No longer an intern or student at this moment. But, I slept in this room every chance I could because I had not much money. LOL. But I knew I wanted a certain position and I had to be present in order to get this position. 2 months later, I was hired for that exact position. I was DETERMINED. •
I pray this encourages someone. When you know you’re called to something, don’t let circumstances define you. There is much more for you. Never forget where you came from but always be looking forward to where you’re going. HE NEVER FAILS AND ALWAYS IS FAITHFUL!
Happy to announce I’ve signed a new management deal with @hummelmusic! Kathryn is not only one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met but is also one of the kindest, most genuine and down to earth person I’ve ever had a chance to work with! The success lately has a lot to do with her kicking my ass and getting the best out of me and being true to myself! To the next chapter 🙌🏻
You walked into my life a year ago today & it was as though we had known each other our whole lives. Everything felt so natural. You were the one who looked out for me that night outside of Belcourt Taps when no one else was there for me. In just 2 weeks we did the craziest thing & spent an entire weekend away & not one moment felt out of place. It was as though God placed you so perfectly in my life & told me everything would be fine from then on. We’ve lived through so much together already, from the very highs to the very lows. I know I can always count on you, & for that I am forever thankful. You made my heart skip then, and it still does whenever I see you. I love you so much. When we have each other, we have everything. Let’s keep living our crazy lives & doing the unimaginable side by side -CiCi🖤
This was one of the most memorable Valentine’s Days I have ever had. I learned so much. Thank you to everyone who came out; thank you for your patience and thank you for letting me and our crew experience this with you. I only wish I could have hung out with each of y’all longer. We saw friends, lovers, even a couple of haters (it’s ok, I actually love and appreciate y’all too), and I cherish every single one of you and can’t believe how lucky I am that I got to meet and have that time with you. You’re all some seriously beautiful people, and I’m gonna remember those two days of hearts and love forever. Thank you guys so SO much. I wish I could tag every one of y’all to say thank you, but it all happened so fast! Luv tats 2019 ❤️
my first show ever was here. i saw weezer and ben folds. last night i got to play my music from that same stage...it’s beautiful when life comes full circle. feeling so grateful now not only for the good stuff, but also my problems. life is a trip and i love you
Everyday runway ready hair! Full & wavy thanks to @tresemme’s compressed micro mist. Not to mention, the compressed micro-mist gives long lasting hold, coverage, humidity and frizz resistance. 🙌🏼🙌🏼#trespartner#tresnyfw •
I surprised Leslie with a private tour of the Nashville Zoo and we had the absolute best time ever. It’s weird for me to be on this side of the lens, but when we are surrounded by amazing animals it’s hard to not have this big of a smile.
It's taken 20-freakin-7 years but I can finally say... IDC about the scale✌🏻.
@cornettfitness32 used to joke that he knew if it was gonna be a 'Good Sasha Day' or 'Bad Sasha Day' purely off what the scale produced each morning.
Seriously thankful it's not controlling my life these day! Bc Friends... It's no way to live!! I'm more concered now with how clothes fit/feel than that number. And right now I'm v happy! I've been leaner, I've been thicker, and like I always preach: we gotta love & value ourselves at all sizes.
I will be slowly tightening up these coming months for summer, but I'm on that tortoise game. Slow and steady. Little changes each week. Mental state and metabolism on point. Still enjoying balance and weekly free meals. Slow and steady 🙏🏻
@hunterpremo & I stalked each other on #ig for a while until we finally met last year at a blogger event! 💕✨😂😘. We ran straight into each other’s arms like we’d known each other for YEARS! I hear people say all the time how hard it is to find friends the older you get! I’m here to tell you your Galentine is out there and willing to share and learn with you! 👯♀️ 🔥 @hunterpremo, @cookie_kendall , and I did a whole boudoir shoot 👙 with my girl and photog @brasspennyphotography and makeup by @rcobridalbeauty ! We stood around in undergarments gassing ⛽️⬆️👯♀️each other up as we talked about marriage, our careers x equal opportunities, friendships, diversity, and so much more! The energy in the room was sweet and magical to say the least! ✨ And when it comes to friendship, GOOD ENERGY IS GOOD ENERGY.
We’re mixing things up over here and trying something new. Every Friday (starting today!) will be #1767freestylefriday. Each week, one of our artists in the shop will create a unique piece of wall art to share. This design will only be available for 24 hours, so if you see something you like, DM us to purchase!
Show love to all people every day
Yesterday I had the opportunity to help out with delivering food, hygiene items, and valentines to various homeless people around Nashville. Sometimes I think we forget that no matter what situation people find themselves in, they are still people, and they deserve to be loved. So, even the smallest acts of kindness towards any people can make someone’s day, and I encourage you to show love to all people whether it be your family, friend, or even somebody you don’t know. Sometimes a simple smile can do more than you realize.
This A&F Drum Co. Nickel Over Brass 6.5x14 w/Walnut Hoops($2200) also just landed at @forksdrumcloset in NASHVILLE, if you’re in the area go HIT IT!!!
We cut, roll, weld and sand this from our brass sheets. We found a nickel plater in Texas who’s family has been plating nickel since 1930’s. The grandson (46) now runs it, and worked with us to nickel plate our brass the way it was done on those old beautiful 1920’s-1930’s of old.
PRE-ORDER NOW AVAILABLE FOR "SUNDAY NEVER COMES/ TAKE OFF YOUR BANDAGES" DOUBLE A-SIDE 7 INCH VINYL
After carefully scanning wider Tennessee for local Beatles freaks, I found Buddy Hughen, Patrick Sansone and Ryan Brewer to back me on these new tracks, which we recorded in Nashville in December 2018. "Sunday Never Comes" was written for the feature film 'Juliet Naked' and has previously only been heard as a demo. "Take Off Your Bandages" is a psychedelic manifesto for the current era, inspired by the activism of the students at Stoneman Douglas High School. Although the official release date for these singles is April 19, all mail order singles have early bird privileges and will be shipped on March 20. Order link in bio. Love on ye, RHx

cour·age. /ˈkərij/ noun:
The ability to #do something that #frightens one.
How IRONIC for this #smalladult to share his birthday with #childhoodcancerawarenessday
11 years ago this #boy came into this world completely unaware of what he was in for.
Three and a half years ago we joined the ranks of the most courageous #kids and #families we've ever met.
We're courageous because we have to be. Pushing through, despite being frightened, because there are NO alternatives.
Sadly along this journey we have seen way too many kids suffer and die.
These are babies, little kids, young adults suffering for an unknown cause.
SUFFERING spending days, weeks, years even in hospital beds. Repeatedly poked with needles, being poisoned with chemo and radiation. Losing years of their lives, and being FRIGHTENED on a REGULAR BASIS.
As parents we would do anything to avoid letting our children be scared. Imagine having to watch them remain in a constant state of fear, unable to comfort them because you're scared yourself and you cannot promise them it will be ok.
As we approach the "end" of Coben's cancer treatments, we begin to appreciate THIS DAY like never before. We are beyond grateful and appreciative to have a #survivor ... to have a light at the end of the tunnel. And yet our hearts are still heavy because we know too many who never had the chance to make it this far.
I hope in sharing Coben's story that we spread #hope as well as #reminders for those #gonetoosoon and #awareness for those yet to come.
I’ve been noticing a lot of cat and dog friendships recently and it really warms my heart. As a cat rescuer in my spare time, I have adopted out single kittens into homes with feline friendly dogs and I love to see how they interact and bond. And don’t even get me started on the joy that is following @henrythecoloradodog and @boochaces. Anywho, Augustus here is a #bookstorecat at a used bookstore in Nashville, TN that is named after dogs and even has a #bookstoredog mascot named Winston. I don’t think Augustus minds though. Perhaps they are even friends? Stop by @blackdogbookco to find out! 📷 by Black Dog Book Co.
Thank you to @upi for such a great review! ” ’The Voice’ alum and Nashville newcomer Kristen Merlin certainly may be Country Music’s brightest new star. On the first single from her forthcoming “Humans Being” disc, Merlin brings a sound that is simultaneously old-school and current. Her vocals are top notch and evocative. Her delivery is inviting and infectious. If this debut is indicative of things to come, Kristen Merlin will be a musical force to be reckoned with for years to come. ” - United Press International
FrIYaY!!!! It’s good to see you again!! I’m headed down to Dallas 🙌🏻 Checking emails and messages while I’m there but It might be a little delayed!

I often feel like I don’t really have a place in this health and wellness community. I have felt so much pressure to label my diet or cater to a certain type of wellness but that’s just not me. I love vegan meals but could never give up eggs and sometimes (especially recently) I just crave chicken. I love Paleo meals but also need chickpea pasta and hummus and Greek yogurt. I don’t belong with the IIFYM crowd because I’m a big believer in nutrients and real food > processed food or eating a food purely for how few grams of carbs it contains. .
A label can easily become restrictive for some and I’ve noticed myself slipping into that recently for comfort. I’ve been pushing myself for the last few weeks to ignore labels and simply eat in a way that feels best for me- and this week it was this lemon tahini grilled chicken with cauliflower tahini dip and nutritional yeast roasted veggies. I’ll be posting the recipes in my comments ♥️ .
My only goal or label now is happy
...and 5 months later, they moved out of their Airbnb.
pumped to collect alllllll the memories + moments with you in this little piece of land bricks wood marble that we can call our very own. 🏡 love you long time, my light, my sun + stars*
shout out to @jlpetty1104 for photo cred + also for being the dopest realtor in the game
*game of thrones catch-up marathon’s got me comin in real hot rn
Finally made it to NASHVEGAS🤩 for the turkey convention!! Looking forward to seeing everyone!! I’ll be at the @prettyhunterusa’s booth most of the day!! So swing by and say hey, and let’s talk hunting!!
It is the final hour of the tenth year and I find that words are insufficient tools. There is no perfect string of them that cold exactly describe the fortune I so ignorantly and undeservedly gained today a decade ago. She is without doubt the one I fear above all others. She is the one that knows me and guards me and holds me and thrusts me far out beyond the edges of my wildest dreams. A look from her any though of that foolish thing is quite disappeared! That other look that’s none of y’all’s business. She is soft and tender and strong beyond words and she loves me and our boys and The Boys with a ferocious guarding love that keeps us and commands us. I know her very well and she is riveting and mysterious and kind and fierce and I haven’t begun to fully understand her. She is my love. My Valentine. My BabyLove.
Before Love day is over, I wanted to wish my husband @myworldmyway86 a Happy Valentine's day. Life has been crazy busy and things have been happening at warp speed, but I am loving the ride and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for loving me in spite of my flaws and pushing me to be the woman you know I can be. Happy Love day yall! Enjoy these wedding photos! Paid all that money for a photographer and JUST now got some pictures printed 😫😂
If you told me a couple of years ago that I’d be hand picked to attend a @laurenjames event + meet and chat with Lauren herself... I’d say you were crazy! But somehow, last night happened, and I can’t express how grateful I am. 🎀 This year, I’ve pushed myself completely out of my comfort zone + grown so much as a person. I’ve met some amazing people + worked with some of my favorite brands. I’ll never get use to this crazy lifestyle or even feel deserving of some of the perks... but I’ll forever be grateful for every opportunity! ❤️ •
