Just got our 2 year photos back from @monarisasmile (yes, this little one is about to turn TWO!) and I'm completely obsessed with this candid shot. ❤️ You other Mommas may understand, but little miss @petitesouthernchic didn't want to cooperate that day, so it makes me so happy to see all of the great photos @monarisasmile captured amidst the chaos. 😊 #toddlerfashion #trendy_tots

Tried my hand at calligraphy tonight thanks to @afineflourish (& @katieandcohouston hosting the Junior League of Houston) for a beginner class. I have a lot of practicing to do, but it was kinda therapeutic! And, I realized my top coordinated perfectly with my practice pages 😂⬛️⬜️ #houston

Black tie ready for our friends' wedding last night!

#weloveourcuteheads because Esther indulges all of my creative outfit ideas! @cuteheadskids ready-to-wear pieces are super cute & amazing, but if I see something I'd love in a different color or fabric (like this shoulder cutout dress I envisioned in mint), Esther makes it happen! Plus, I'm convinced she gets inside my brain when I dream up a custom piece, like baby girl's 1st birthday outfit, because she completely brings it to life. And, even better! If you follow Esther, you may have seen that her house flooded due to Hurricane Harvey. Without missing a beat after being rescued by boat from her own home, Esther went right to helping others asking for nothing for her own home and family. We want to show Esther how much we love her & have joined in on a giveaway for multiple $75 @cuteheadskids gift cards for families who were impacted by the flooding. Enter for yourself or a friend at the link in my profile [just add email to enter!]. The giveaway ends at midnight on Friday, September 15th. Thank you for supporting my dear friend & one of our favorite companies. 💗
Gotta refocus on sharing our #Peru trip with you all on Southern Chic Style! Harvey certainly threw us for a loop in Houston. But, looking back at this beautiful spot in #Lima brought back the excitement I needed to get a new post on our #adventure on the blog this week 👊🏻 In the meantime, shop this look with a screenshot in the @liketoknow.it app. http://liketk.it/2sGKU #liketkit #ootd #travelblogger #wiw #lifestyleblogger #love

I've struggled with just how to move on with social media, as I did before, while people all around Houston are still literally picking up the pieces, and the Beaumont area is still under water. I struggle with getting back to my normal while so many will be cleaning and repairing and replacing for months, at the least. Sometimes I've escaped this reality by looking at others' travel photos and looking back on my own. This picture is from Phillip Island off the coast of Australia where we went to see the tiny blue penguins. But, what spoke to me is the feeling of hope that resonated as I looked at it. Heading up the path, looking into the sunset, and knowing there's so much life to live ahead. So, this is my hope for all that survived yet flooded. That we know an end to the recovery process will come, and we have the gift of a beautiful life to continue living to it's fullest. Please continue to pray for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. It will be a long road. As I cannot think of a smooth transition back to linking outfits and strayed from linking #liketkit posts to Harvey recovery posts, this outfit will be the first since the storm as we come into fall 👉🏻 http://liketk.it/2sCHa @liketoknow.it #ootd #travelblogger #australia #tx
I can say from the bottom of my heart how very proud I am of our city and the amazing amounts of people giving of their time, money, and belongings to help others! 💙❤️ As #Houston and Southeast TX recovers, there's many opportunities to contribute to the relief effort. Today #ontheblog I have compiled a list of over 15 items you can purchase that give back to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Many are giving 100% of the proceeds to the cause! {link in profile} Plus, find a list of retailers giving a portion of sales/proceeds. Show your support on your tee, necklace, hat, and more as you give monetary support to organizations helping those devastated by Hurricane Harvey. We feel your love here in Texas! 💙 #texasstrong #love #htx
Such a strange feeling when friends are losing everything and your city is underwater and the rest of the world just keeps going on as usual. 🌎
Can't quite put it into words. My family is so very blessed and thankful to make it through Harvey with only a few roof leaks. But, the toll this whole disaster has taken on emotions and perspectives for myself and so many I know is somewhat of a life changing experience. You certainly realize what is really important and appreciate the incredible generosity the whole world is watching take place in and around Houston regardless of race, religion, income level, or political party. 💙
This is most definitely not over as the rain has let up and is moving on. There is so much clean up that will begin & has begun as people attempt to put the pieces back together. Prayers and support are still needed. We will come out of this stronger and more united. Thank you for your continued concern and prayers! ❤️ *Photo from our neighbor's back yard looking at the boat docks underwater at Lake Houston

"Catastrophic" and "unprecedented" are words we keep hearing on the news. And, yes, it is both of those in Houston right now. So many friends are evacuated from their homes that flooded like our friends at @cuteheadskids. Praying Harvey gets out of here!
Here's a little perspective from the Washington Post:
"Just how unprecedented is this? Well, remember the flooding that New Orleans experienced with Hurricane Katrina? Most places saw about 10 to 20 feet of water thanks to levee failure, inundating about 80 percent of the city. Now, if we took the amount of rainfall that Texas has seen and spread it over the city limits of New Orleans, it would tower to 128 feet in height — roughly reaching as high as a 12-story office building." You can donate to the Red Cross to help them continue to help those impacted by disasters like this. ❤️
