My grandparents have been members at this tennis club for 50 years. My mom spent every afternoon of her youth here. I learned how to swim in this pool, and spent countless afternoons running around, swimming, and watching tennis matches with my brothers... time seems to stand still in this magical place. Of all the things that inevitably change in life, this place seems to stay the same, and I love it!

Mama is heading back to work, y'all!
It's been so difficult to keep this quiet. I interviewed for this position back in January. I turned down other job offers in hopes that I would get this position. I was offered the job in February. I have undergone background checks, drug tests, health assessments at the hospital, mask fittings, lots of paperwork, and I had to track down all of my vaccination records from every county I've ever lived in. They have conducted previous employer interviews and personal reference interviews.
Now that everything is completed, I'm officially an employee at JHAC in the oncology department.
The past few years have been a complete whirlwind for me. From having a baby to being a single mom with absolutely no help (financially or otherwise) from the ex abuser to moving from Alaska back to Florida to going through a two year long divorce to now rejoining the work force, Harper starting preschool, and my divorce being final.
I have learned so much about myself throughout everything I've been through and I'm finally happy. Just genuinely, for real, happy. 💚

Making progress on day #2
with my window installation at @louandgrey
👌🏼This project has flipped everything I know about painting on it's head because I'm applying the paint to the inside of the glass to be seen from the outside. To achieve the look I want, I have to start with all the tiny details that I usually add in last, and gradually work my way up to the bigger background strokes that usually come first. Grateful for new projects that keep me challenged...and also hook me up with stretchy overalls 🤸🏻♂️ #louandgrey #allthefeels

Watching our clients use their design roadmap - and run with it - is by far our favorite part!
Like this Park Slope bedroom...a perfect NYC sanctuary. 😍🙌🏻 #allthefeels
It might sound kinda weird and it might feel kinda weird when you do it. But I promise it works.
When I was talking to my counselor about having moments of anxiety or shame or just feeling totally overwhelmed, she stopped me and said, “What do you feel? What are you doing right now?” So I told her that I was sitting in her office sharing my feelings. And she was like, “Right. But what exactly do you feel right now? Describe it without judgment.” I told her I felt a couch and it felt “good.” (Wow great adjective Kaitlin.) But “good” is a judgment. I went on to tell her I felt a soft couch, a warm cup of coffee, and a fuzzy sweater. I heard the air conditioning and sirens outside.
She smiled and said, “You’re in this very moment. Nothing past for future. Just present.” As “duh” as it sounds, when I think about exactly what I feel, it brings me back to the present moment, which is the only moment I can actually hold right now. I can’t go back and change things and I can’t fast forward to prepare for anything. I can only be me in this exact moment. And that relieves a lot of pressure and a lot of anxiety.
I embarrassingly told my husband about the exercise and said, “It sounds stupid, but I guess it works.” He said, “I love that.” And now every single time he noticed me getting anxious, he says, “What do you feel?” And I want to ask you, in the middle of your day at work or with your kids or rushing from here to there or answering all the emails or trying to do all the things, what do you feel? Think about it. Rest in it. Breathe it in. Just be and feel and know that this moment is the only moment you have right now. Don’t wish it away with worry.
Spring has sprung! 🌷Here’s some cuteness to get you through the day.
Don’t forget I’ll be in the RGV April 12-16th available for your family shoots. Thank you to everyone who’s booked a session! Still have some slots available.

Happy Peak Week AND Anniversary to me... and @deni_bodybuilding
All the feels today guys.. not only is my show on Saturday but exactly one year ago I got to marry my soulmate and best friend 🙏💜 it’s been a wild ride but there’s no one else I’d have wanted next to me for each and every moment.
In terms of this prep.. it wasn’t easy.. nor should it be in my opinion.. if it’s easy then I feel you didn’t push yourself to the limits needed to be your best. With that being said if someone asked if I’m 100% happy with this physique I’d be lying.. but that’s only because I’m already looking at ways to improve for my next show. That’s what being hungry for success is all about. Some people make look at this negatively but I don’t.. I take pride in my desire to improve continually.. it keeps me from remaining complacent and I apply that drive in all areas of life!
Am I proud of this physique? HELL YAH! Did I give 200% everyday.. YOU KNOW IT!! So don’t get me wrong I’m not tearing myself down.. I’m beyond excited to get on stage and showcase the work I put in but don’t be fooled I’m just getting started 😈!
Also thank you SO much for all the love you’ve sent me this week and continue to send me leading into show day! I appreciate and love each and every one of you!!
Also also 🤣 can we just laugh at how I’m barely awake for these progress photos 😴

I feel like people give up so easily on each other nowadays. It's like the first serious problem or any problems that happen during a relationships, people fear that their relationship may be in jeopardy. People shouldn't be so afraid to lose someone after relationship issues. What has happened to hard work and communication? No relationship is ever perfect, and it's sad to see people just throw relationships away. Every couple needs to learn how to keep the love alive, and Neil Patrick Harris has said it the best. Love is hard, love work, it isn't always going to be roses, but love is the best feeling in the world, and people go there whole lives searching for it! -A ❤️
Okay Ladies let's try this again!!! It is TST tonight! Last week we asked for your questions so that I could give quick laser strategies to move through the emotions that are holding you back from taking your business to the next level. I want to make this the most useful and inspiring TST yet so post your questions below.
We will also be exploring negative thoughts and how you DON’T have to just live with them but train your brain to move quickly through into the thoughts you want to have.
Make sure to invite your friends to the group so that they can be inspired too!
