Fun to find a book on my TBR list at this campsite's Free Little Library! Also fun to add a signed copy of my book. ❤️📚 #athomeintheworld #oxfall2017
This wasn't terrible. And by that I mean, it was divine. 🍨#oxfall2017
It's early fall, it's our first school break, and our backpacks were sad from unuse. So, we're roadtripping to NC for #thenestfest. 🍁 It's good to be out and about! As our youngest said yesterday, "It feels good to be traveling again. It makes me feel like ourselves." 🏕#oxfall2017

Backyard still life. #itssimplytuesday I spoke at a conference this past weekend, and I also opened enrollment for one of my courses, which meant work was busy. A good busy, but still busy. But when it stops, I ALWAYS find my body and soul shaking with the need to do ordinary, quotidian things. It's where our lives are made to live most, after all. After being on stage, I absolutely HAVE to dust the bookshelves, putter in the backyard, and hang laundry to dry in the afternoon sun (yep - I love doing it old school). My friend @emilypfreeman has a new podcast that's like weekly spiritual direction for my soul (really), and her new episode today was on more-or-less just this thing. We're not made to be noticed. It's not what our souls want, even if our social media feeds tell us otherwise. Click on the link in my profile if you'd like to check out Emily's podcast, at 👚👖

Fall is a time, oddly enough, new beginnings - we often treat it as a second New Year. It's a time for walks, journals, music, plans. It's a good time for asking questions about who you are, what you're about, and if your life is lining up with those things. 🍂 That's what we do in Like Your Life, and it's open through tomorrow (Mon, Sept. 18). A self-paced course that leads you through the same blueprint I use to help me zero in on what I'm personally about. Plus, right now I've also got an optional 6-week accountability group, if you'd like to check in with me + others regularly to ask questions and stay on track. Thousands have walked through the blueprint... Join us? Click the link in profile to learn more, at And? Happy almost fall, y'all. 🙌🏻🍁

Finally reading this. 📕 Have you read it? Thoughts?
Cool mornings, warm afternoon breeze as I walk to the library to work, the last push of mosquitos, green pecans prepping for their ambush on innocent passersby in a few weeks... it must be the earliest of fall. And I couldn't be happier about it. 🍃🍂 #itssimplytuesday
Evening snuggles. (#GinnyOx has been a needed addition to our family.) 🐾❤️#wheatensofinstagram
A lovely start to my 4th decade. 🍩☕️🌸

So there was this time on our travels that we drove the coastline of Croatia from north to south. Out of nowhere, we passed a "Welcome to Bosnia" sign, and then less than a minute later, we passed a "You are now leaving Bosnia" sign. Kyle said, "Whoa whoa whoa," and pulled over. "We can't drive through Bosnia without at least getting out." So he turned around, and we parked in front of a Bosnian cafe. We walked into the smoke-filled room, ordered two coffees to go (they had to dig up styrofoam cups), I took this photo from the building, and then we hopped back in the car and headed back into Croatia. If you look at a map, you'll see a tiny spot where Bosnia cuts into the Croat coastline, which I'm sure has a storied history as to why. But it meant getting to add Bosnia to our list of countries visited, for a total of 15 minutes and a complete unplanned surprise to us. #athomeintheworld #tbt #bosnia 🏠🌍

17 years ago today, Kyle and I met on a village road in Kosovo. Which means this morning, we're having coffee on the front porch, waving at neighbors as they walk by, and taking about kids, work, and guesstimating how many cups of coffee we've had together. ❤️

Well, my online break has officially ended. And every time I come back from my traditional summer break, I say things will be changing. But this time? They really are. Read on if you're curious.

Looooved talking with @ianmorgancron, a fellow enneagram 4, about the intricacies of being a 4. (I'm actually a countertype 4, so I'm extra weird...) Plus, we're both married to 9s, so basically what I'm saying is, we have a lot in common. Listen to our chat - link in my profile, at 🎤
