Not too long after I began my career as an agent I had the incredible opportunity of sitting down with some very important film folks to pitch a few projects. One of the best compliments I’ve ever received regarding my career and how I approach sharing my client’s work came as a result of this meeting. It was said that I, “lit up immediately at even the mention of my client’s work; that I came to life talking about their work. And if anyone I ever worked with knew or could see me in action they would hold on tight and never let me go because I was a rare thing indeed.” This compliment has stayed with me ever since, but over the years I’m worried my spark has fizzled a bit. Perhaps too much of a creative soul for my line of work, I take everything to heart and have allowed a few hard hits to sink deeply into my well-spring of passion and drive for what I truly love about my job. I’m in love with my work and I feel so so fortunate to have found agenting when I did. This year though, in 2018, I reclaim what is mine. I’m taking my heart back from the soul crushing experiences, from those whose passion and desires weren’t in line with my own, from the paths that weren’t the right ones and the right time, and again deeply feel that passion and love burn within me for the work I am a part of.
This year’s word, 2018, I thought was going to be reclaim but after a great deal of pondering what I feel is best is, PASSION. As it says in good old Merriam-Webster, passion is defined as “an intense desire or enthusiasm for something.” I will have that about each and every project going out into the world, each client, each conversation, every interaction and more. I’m putting everything into this this year, and I can’t wait to see the results! #wordoftheyear #passion #reclaim #2018goals #agentlife #lupinegrovecreative

Because lifting 300 lb. #deadlifts followed by a classic @billgrundler @crossfitinferno workout of chest-to-bar pull-ups and overhead squats wasn’t enough...
I then spent the better part of my #mlkjrday raking the largest leaf pile I’ve ever seen in my life. Wish there was a before picture honestly, it was such a huge mess and on a hill! All of this to begin Eden’s first ever vegetable garden, which is adorable!
As a reward...One of @apsmith227’s amazing cookies. I think I really earned it today, right @kassiheidemann?

Seems like a pretty fitting motto for 2018. Reposting from my fabulous client, @britjanee. #2018goals #dream #believe #reclaim

This guy. Already killing it in 2018. Alan made a #60lbPR to hit a #415lbs back squat! Not a bad way to start off the new year!
Tested mine and got a new PR as well to put me at #210lbs on my back squat, which wasn’t bad considering I had food poisoning last week. Trying to start 2018 off in a big way with all the PRs! 💪🏼

Funny, when I look at these pictures it’s hard to believe they were all this past year. So much happened this year and yet it also feels like such an interesting mixed bag of a year. Some really good good things and some low lows, but what this best-of shows me is that I’m living a pretty good well-rounded life. All the things I love are represented here: my family, good friends, work and books, Crossfit, my health and fitness, the inspiration I get from my children and of kitties. What a life I have! So much there to be grateful for and so much more to come! Thank you to everyone who has made 2017 what it was! #love #2017bestnine #crossfit #crossfitgirls #agentlife #snappsy #dreamworks #catsofinstagram #crossfitkids #creativekids #healthfitness #bookdeals

Almost a new year, and I was finally feeling more like a human than I have in weeks, so I figured it was a good time to get my hair done by the fabulous @amanda_nichole_duckett and @twigandarrowsalon. I never thought I’d love having my hair so dark again, but I’ve seriously been head over heels for it the last couple of times Amanda’s done it. Plus she’s just amazing! If you live near SLO I highly highly recommend her!
Now time to get thinking about all of those goals and ideas I’ve got percolating for 2018. It’s going to be a great year, I can already tell. From things with my fitness and getting the chance to work with @kassiheidemann on my nutrition/fitness and of course continuing to work with the awesome @billgrundler at @crossfitinferno on my Crossfit to everything I’m doing with my business. This year I have big plans for @lupinegrove, including the expansion of the agency by bringing on another agent and looking to make the agency even more diverse than it already is in who we are working with. I’m grateful to be able to keep working with @bri_dummar and my incredible list of talented clients, we have so many books coming out this year and many sales to be announced! It’s going to be a fantastic 2018!!! #killingit #agentlife #2018goals #crossfitgoals #nutritiongoals #powerliftinggoals #powerlifting #crossfitgirls #powerliftingwomen

Well, as they say...things are gettin real around these parts. 2018 is going to be the year of knocking out some pretty hefty goals I’ve got lined up and my Christmas gifts this year kicked it off in a big way. I’ve been planning on and wanting to compete more this coming year, not only in #Crossfit competitions but in powerlifting and one big thing I needed was a belt. So, Alan got me a professional @inzer_official lifting belt for when I finally sign up for my first competitions! 💪🏼 He also got me this awesome @doughnutsanddeadlifts hoodie that I thought was completely sold out! He’s too good!!! ❤️❤️ It totally made up for being down with the worst case of food poisoning ever over Christmas, and all I can say is that I’ve gotten all my sickness out for the foreseeable future (*knocks on all the wood*). We had a great Christmas and I’m honestly so grateful we were home together sharing a quiet relaxing time with each other. Now here’s to 2018 and all that is to come!!! #merrychristmas #merrychristmas2017 #inzerbelt #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #crossfitgirls #crossfit #powerlifter #crossfitter

It’s not Christmas around these parts until we’ve watched Home Alone 1&2. “That was the sound of a tool chest rolling down the stairs.” There are so many great hilarious lines and moments! And of course these aren’t the only Christmas movies we’re watching. What are your favorites?

What can I say? I’m a #starwars girl at heart. I cried buckets the day Carrie Fisher died and this bracelet felt like the most fitting way for me to honor her and also serve as a continual reminder to stand-up and #resist, because in the end love will always win. These were my two big purchases from our #DisneyWorld trip and I couldn’t be happier. #bb8 #iloveyouiknow #jediatheart #love #resistance @alexandani

So good to be home and hangin with my two favorite kitties. They’ve both been purring non-stop and Ash even took a nap next to me, which he never does. That said these guys, especially Ash, are mischievous as all get out! We had the best help and @maryweberauthor’s daughter Rilian took awesome care of these guys, but they gave her a run for her money and even got into the Christmas presents!!!! Turkeys. Even after they destroyed two of their own Christmas presents I can’t help but be happy to see them. They make being SICK AS ALL GET OUT so much easier to handle. ❤️ 😻 #cat #catsofinstagram

By far one of my favorite pictures from the week. Eden has been collecting signatures and meeting characters all week, but this one was an absolute highlight today! We LOVE Baymax and she was so excited to give him a hug in person! So adorable!!! ❤️ #bighero6 #disney #disneyworld #epcot #baymax

What do you do while on vacation at #DisneyWorld and you and the girl come down with the flu of death? Well, you stay in bed and watch Mickey cartoons of course!! ❤️ Thank goodness we have a few more days! We should be feeling better after a day of rest, I think we may have just done too much and hung out in the petri-dish more than we normally do. 😉😂😊 Also, did I mention that we happened to pick the Animation Resort to stay in? Because of course we did! I ❤️ Illustration!!! #happiestplaceonearth #happiestplaceonearthtobesick? #disney #artofanimationresort

“Well, they’re Eden’s favorite chips so why can’t I like them too?!” - Ash, the cat who thinks he’s a human.
Earlier today I came home to discover his head buried in an almost empty bag of @plentils Margherita Pizza flavored lentil chips. He begs for them every time Eden chows down on them and it totally cracks us up. They don’t really have anything bad in them, so I’m not sure they’re terrible for him, but not exactly cat food...🙄😂 #catsofinstagram #finnandash

Too much. This is likely one of my favorites of this girlie from this past summer. A girl whose heart is so much like my own, whose energy and drive to do more and be more is equally if not more driven. She is both a source of frustration and inspiration, but always one of immense love. •••
This week has been a rough week. In many ways I’ve felt like this sweet girl here, an island alone on the shore trying to figure things out feeling misunderstood and unheard. •••
So often in my life I have the repeated the theme of friendship and how to balance or even attain it, which for me is not at all. I can’t seem or simply don’t seem to handle friendships well at all. More often than not I mess up. I seem to open my big mouth and say something sarcastic or truthful that shouldn’t be said for social reasons and I’ve suddenly become the pariah of the group — if I wasn’t already. I discover again why it’s best for me to keep my head down, focus on what I’m good at (my work) and move forward.
Love deeply. My problem. Just this, I love and care too deeply. In every interaction I’ve always strived and longed for deeply connected relationships, shared stories and understanding of how the world works for the other. It takes time, investment, concern and love. And I long for it in return. Which is why I am so very grateful for this delightful girl and her incredible heart, passion and soul. She meets me and pushes me to try harder and love deeper, to not be afraid of my hearts desires. To live with a whole heart, out-loud. #friendship #love

Daddy-Daughter dance tonight means date night for Jace and I! He asked, “Mom, why are you getting all fancy and I’m just in shorts and a t-shirt?” Dude, I’ll take any excuse to dress up that I can at this point. 😉😂 #gymclothesfordays #datenight
