  • ⁠Happy anniversary my love. ♥️ @laytonjacobcox ⁠
⁠
I can't believe we've been married 4 years and together for 8 years! ⁠
⁠
Swipe to see photos from the beginning of our relationship till now (including some from our engagement and wedding). ➡️⁠
⁠
Layton, you've been my absolute rock. ⁠I don't know how I got so lucky finding someone who is kind, compassionate, loving, hardworking, encouraging, patient, and understanding. ⁠
⁠
Thank you for ⁠loving me at my worst and best, for always putting our relationship first, for showing me what unconditional love looks like, for going on all our crazy adventures, for loving our family (fur babies included), and for just being you. You're one hell of a man, and truly one of the best people on this Earth. ⁠
⁠
I love you so much and am looking forward to whatever the future holds. ⁠🔮⁠
⁠
⁠

  • ⁠It's been a week since I posted. What did I miss???⁠ ⁠
While a few states in the US are still under the stay-at-home order till the end of July, Texas and many others are slowly opening. ⁠
⁠
Tomorrow, bars in Texas open with 25% occupancy and restaurants will increase to 50% occupancy. I'm excited about this! Can't wait to order some chicken wings and a whiskey-diet from my favorite dive bar. ⁠🍻🍗
⁠
Are things finally opening up where you live???⁠

  • Last night, I had a dream . . . well, really it was a nightmare. ⁠😱
⁠
I was back in high school (ew), and I showed up to my Spanish class totally unprepared for a huge exam (yikes)! ⁠
⁠
I panicked and immediately started sweating. I tried to answer the questions as best as I could, but while the rest of the class was diligently working, I knew no matter how hard I tried, it would end in failure. When I woke up, I felt so much residual shame and anxiety - not exactly a great way to start my morning. ⁠
⁠
I'm sure there's some connection between my dream and what's going on in my life now, but personally I think it's also PTSD from my shitty college prep school. ⁠
⁠
Anyone else having strange or anxious dreams??? If you can remember them, tell me in the comments below!⁠ 👇

  • While I was dreaming of the lavender fields of Provence, the wildflowers of Texas will do just fine. ⁠🌻
⁠
This summer, @laytonjacobcox and I were supposed to go on a month-long road trip from Rome to Paris. Unfortunately, we just had to cancel these plans and won't be able to reschedule any time soon since Layton starts his new job this fall. ⁠
⁠
However, we still have our flights to Grand Cayman booked for August, so fingers crossed we can make that happen!⁠ ✈️
⁠
What travel plans did you have to cancel or reschedule?⁠

  • Say cheese! 😝⁠
⁠
Feeling grateful for everything photography has brought into my life - new friends, exciting travels, business opportunities, personal growth, and so much more. ⁠
⁠
While I've taken a break from photography during quarantine, I can't wait to get back out there and capture the beauty of this world! ⁠
⁠
What's your dream destination???? Mine is French Polynesia! 🏝️⁠ 🇵🇫⁠

  • ⚠️ Texas is no longer under the stay at home order. ⚠️⁠
⁠
Retail stores, malls, restaurants, theaters, libraries, and museums are able to reopen today but only at 25% occupancy. Starting on May 18, businesses will be able to expand their occupancy to 50%. Think of this as a soft opening. ⁠
⁠
There are many differing opinions on whether this is a good or bad idea - and I see both sides of the argument. Regardless, it's happening, so I'm just hoping for a positive outcome. ⁠
⁠
But for those of us in Texas, try to follow the safety guidelines laid out by Governor Abbott in his Report To Open Texas: wear a mask in public, wash your hands often, disinfect surfaces, avoid touching face, and stay home if you can. 🏡😷⁠
⁠
What are your thoughts on slowly reopening at this time?⁠

  • "I am a wildflower⁠
growing freely in the world⁠
simple and unpretentious⁠
seemingly weak⁠
but secretly resilient⁠
able to weather ⁠
and withstand ⁠
the temperature of life." ⁠
⁠
🌻⁠🌼🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻
⁠
These little red flowers surrounding me are called Indian Paintbrushes. They grow in the Southwest United States and were consumed in moderation by various Native American tribes. ⁠
⁠
Many believe the flower inspires enthusiastic artistic activity and energetic creativity - and I believe it's true! After spending the morning amongst these beautiful wildflowers, I definitely feel inspired and more creative than ever. ⁠❤️

  • Little did I know that blue skies, sunshine, and flower fields were exactly what I needed. ☀️⁠
⁠
I finally got out of Dallas for the day to visit the wildflowers in Ennis, Texas. ⁠
⁠
Since it was the end of Bluebonnet season, there weren't nearly as many as last year. Check my stories for a comparison! But luckily they were replaced by beautiful fields of red Indian Paintbrushes. Not exactly what I was expecting but happy with it nevertheless. ⁠
⁠
Have you been able to enjoy Spring this year? Hopefully, it's been more than allergies! ⁠

  • Sharing one of my favorite images from Antigua ♥️⁠
⁠
Even though traveling isn't really an option at the moment, we can still relive past trips through photographs and look forward to future ones. ⁠
⁠
During this unprecedented time, @AntiguaAndBarbuda has launched the 'Message in the Sand' campaign. Every week, they will be sharing a new message written on one of Antigua's 365 beaches to help spread positivity and kindness. You can even submit an inspiring message of your own!⁠
⁠
So if you need to escape from reality and want to embrace the beauty of Antigua, definitely check out their Instagram @antiguaandbarbuda .⁠
⁠
And if you're dreaming about a Caribbean getaway once all this is over, definitely consider visiting the island of Antigua. From the genuinely kind people to the beautiful landscapes, Antigua will easily steal your heart. ⁠

  • Have you experienced any positives from being quarantined?. ⁠
.
I've actually enjoyed this time since it's given me the chance to slow down and appreciate the small stuff - like the warm sunshine on my face during my daily walks or the beautiful wildflowers growing along the bike trails in Dallas.⁠
.
I've also been kinder to myself and gotten more in touch with my emotional needs. ⁠
⁠.
I've started reading for leisure. ⁠
⁠.
I've had time to really think about my future and journey as a blogger and photographer. ⁠
⁠.
I've connected more with the people in my life that matter the most.⁠
⁠.
While I'm excited and anxious for all of this madness to pass, I'm grateful for the clarity and understanding it has brought me during this time. ⁠♥️
