Double tap if the weekday healthy eating struggle is real! It is for me. But this Lemony Kale, White Bean, & Avocado Salad with Charred Tempeh is my solution. Recipe via the link in profile! 👨🏻‍🍳 I originally called this the Matt Salad because @matthewlud came up when it, but I think maybe it should be called the remix salad because... 🥗 You can replace the kale with any dark leafy green; the white beans with the pulse or legume of your choice (I like chickpeas and lentils!); the charred tempeh with charred tofu or the protein of your choice (I have a thing for "beyond chicken"...); and you can top it with any kind of nut or seed (it uses sunflower seeds & sesame seeds but hazelnuts, hemp seeds, whatever, would be great!), and you can change up the oils and acid in the dressing (I've been doing it with a tahini miso dressing and it's soooo good)! 💡 And as if those aren't enough ideas you can also make a huge batch & eat it throughout the week in different forms: heated in a skillet and topped with an egg for breakfast, a soup, in a wrap. Head over to the blog through the link in profile for the recipe and more ideas! If you make it make sure to snap a pic and tag eatmoremagic and localmilkrecipes! Seeing my recipes in action brings me so much joy! • • • • • eatyourgreens dairyfree glutenfree glutenfreevegan vegansofinstagram iamwellandgood buzzfeedhealth feedfeedvegan cleaneats thekitchn eatmoremagic theartofslowliving plantbased plantpower getfit healthyliving onthetable calmversation veganfoodshare whatveganseat eattheworld theeverygirlcooks lifeandthyme f52grams eatwellbewell eattherainbow nutritiousanddelicious eatgreen

I wanted to call these Immortality Beauty Bliss Balls...but that's a litttttle over the top. Suffice to say , these simple, easy Adaptogen Coconut Cacao Bliss Balls with Reishi & He Shou Wu are anti-aging, calming, longevity promoting bites of pure, well, bliss. And they only take a few minutes to make. Get the recipe via the link in my profile and make these to keep as a snack for between meals, post work out, and on the go. They're excellent for travel! 🤷🏻‍♀️ And if you're like ummm "he shou wu?? he did what?", don't worry. I break down what the adaptogenic herbs are and what their benefits are in the post, and if you don't want to mess with the more esoteric ingredients, they're just as good without them. The adaptogenic herbs (that's what the reishi & he shou wu are) just add the magic & healing. But if you're looking for a no fuss healthy energy bite, if you can get your hands on coconut flakes, almonds, and dates, you're pretty much good to go. 🔮 If you *are* as into adaptogens & tonic herbs as I am, then these are right up your alley. Both herbs used have yin energy—combined they're great for connecting with intuition & spiritual receptiveness, creativity, & inspiration. Ideal for the mystics & creatives among us. 🔬 If that all sounds a little fluffy for you, they're also antioxidant, antihistamine, anticarcinogenic, and antinflammatory. Adaptogens are at their most effective when taken daily as part of your routines or rituals, so eating one of these a day is a great way to get some more in your diet. 🌱 Where are you guys at with adaptogens? Are they new to you? Foreign? Your favorite? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments! Would you be interested in a "magic pantry checklist" that details what I keep on hand? eatmoremagic livemoremagic • • • • • adaptogens refinedsugarfree dairyfree glutenfree wheatfree soyfree glutenfreevegan vegansofinstagram iamwellandgood buzzfeedhealth feedfeedvegan cleanliving cleaneats thekitchn eatmoremagic theartofslowliving plantbased herbalism getfit paleo healthyliving onthetable calmversation veganfoodshare whatveganseat eattheworld theeverygirlcooks lifeandthyme

Happy SelfCareSunday! Today's about why my Slow Morning Routine is such an big part of my success. You can grab the guide to my routine & habits through the link in my profile! ⚡️ Creating habits that leave me primed for a productive, peaceful day is something it took me years to figure out. I'm *not* a morning person. I love to stay up late & sleep late. But the realities of running a business and being a mom have forced me into mornings. ☀️ I'm super relaxed about my routine—the whole thing from waking up to starting work takes about 2 hours, so if I'm going to do it all, I need to get up between 6-8 am on week days. The routine leaves my brain & body primed, my space tidy & self clean, and the family fed. Even if I only make it through one step of the routine, it's a better day than if I didn't. The more boxes I tick, the better the day. There's a direct relationship between having a power morning and a power day. 🌿 I want to emphasize that the secret to success is not being a perfectionist about it. Sometimes I over sleep, and I have to spray my hair with dry shampoo, throw it into a messy bun, put on yesterday's clothes laying next to the bed, and hit the ground running. That totally happens. Sometimes I manage to make breakfast and do a sun salutation or two. Take what works for you and your life, and leave the rest. I have an awesome husband that watches the baby while I meditate, often dresses her, and takes her to the sitter's. You might not have that. Or you might not have kids making this all a loooot easier! 😅 So, more important than making your bed or meditating is giving yourself grace & not seeing days or mornings as failures if you didn't tick every box. I rarely do. It's somewhere to aim. Don't forget to get the guide through the link in my profile! 📷 PS! If you dig the edit on this photo, it's edited with a preset from my classic collection which you can find through the link in my profile too! livemoremagic • • • • • morningslikethese petitejoys darlingweekend gatheringslikethese livethelittlethings thehappynow verilymoment lifeandthyme

Today I want to share some real talk on something I get asked about a lot, something that I have intimate personal experience with: how to deal with being copied. 🙇🏻‍♀️ Whether it's your design, business model, style, or all of the above, far too many creatives know the sting of being ripped off. I have friends whose product designs have been ripped off by corporations. Designers who've been copied without shame with no credit. And I myself have been sent screen shots over the years of a blogger copying me. I've been there. 💆🏻 So here's my advice: first learn to differentiate between inspiration & copying. Don't resent inspiring other people...celebrate it! I myself learned from people I look up to, and I shout them out from the rooftops on the reg. We don't exist in a vacuum and none of us are 100% original. That's not how art works. If you're inspiring people, be happy! 🤦🏻‍♀️ But what about when it's not so friendly? They don't follow you, have never reached out, yet seem to mirror your work or even your every move? Maybe you even hear that your copycat is gossiping about you even if they're a stranger? Simply let it go. Ask why it upsets you? Does it threaten your livelihood or real relationships? My guess is it doesn't because a copy cat can never be you & there's more than enough opportunity to go around. And because character is stronger than reputation—who you are will always prevail over idle gossip. 💃🏻 So if you ever find yourself frustrated, hurt, sad, or angry because someone is taking your hard work and using it without giving you any credit or kindness, remember that community trumps competition. Take a deep breath & wish them well on their way. Evolve...let them have it! That said, don't be afraid to stand up, if it's a violation of copyright, confront. If nothing is done...get a lawyer! But at the end of the day, guard your heart from the poison of anger. Not worth it. Please share your experience and perspective in the comments! 💌 Want more real talk? Join the community via the link in profile for letters from me on business, life, and loving it all! livemoremagic communityovercompetition risingtidesociety

We're going to talk the big taboo in the creative community, the M word: Money. This week & next I'm going to share a 2 part mini series on RealMoneyTalk in partnership with @IntuitTurbo, a new app that shows you were you truly stand financially...for free. My family is what motivated me to wrap my head around financial health & start doing what I should. 💸 Anyone who knows me knows that I love to talk money. I believe it's not a dirty word, and that our most precious non-renewable resource, time, is intimately linked to how we manage our personal finances. Money is the 1 cause of stress in America. If we don't talk about it how can we learn from one another? 📈 Part I: Fact: most Americans are not financially healthy, debt is on the rise and over half couldn't come up with a $400 emergency fund. What can we do? A big lesson I learned: Live below your means. I've struggled with this SO much. A latte here, a sexy ceramic there, a new pair of yoga pants...things we tell ourselves we "need" when they're really wants. We need to not fall into the Instagram & Pinterest trap of wanting all the beautiful things, trips, homes, & clothes that other people post. When I started my business, I had NO money, so I got super excited when it became profitable and shopped WAY too much. When we spend on things we don't need, we get caught on the consumption hamster wheel. We find ourselves unable to save, to pay down debt, to stop working, to pause to breathe. I've been there. 💗 We don't need it all NOW to be happy. Don't let past mistakes keep you down. You can be happy right now, no matter where you are in your financial journey. We need love + to make a meaningful impact in the world with our gifts whether that's mothering beautiful babies, working for or running a business that makes an impact, volunteering, donating, or all of the above. That's happiness. We can't do this alone, and we can't do it in silence. It's time we share our stories, our fears, our dreams, and our lessons around money. I'd love for you to DM or Comment your own stories with RealMoneyTalk. Let’s share our stories + inspire each other. Partner ad communityovercompetition

[Vegan + Gluten Free!] Salted Dark Chocolate Cake with Fluffy Coconut Frosting! This weekend's baking included my dairy free, gluten free super chocolatey cake from the archives for my friend @tifforelie's birthday. 🎂 You can find the recipe on my blog through the link in profile! And if you're like me & thought a great dairy-free, gluten-free cake was a laughable idea...think again! I swear by this cake. Tiff is off sugar, so we even made it sugar free (!!!) by using monkfruit sweetener instead. It was an insane feat of baking science and so good. 🍽 If you're someone that has severe dietary restrictions or you have a loved one with them, then this cake is like a miracle. I know it can be painful to live with restrictions, so I hope this recipe helps! You can flavor it with different things like coffee, lavender, or whatever inspires you, but I like it pretty simple with just a bit of sea salt though the lavender is a nice touch. 💌 If you don't want to miss a recipe (we've got an easy, vegan golden milk inspired soup + all about why I take a turmeric supplement tomorrow!), I would be so honored if you joined the community! Just click the link in my bio and then hit the button that says "join the community" to get tips for elevating the everyday plus allllll the freebies and recipes as well as a monthly letter from me to you all about empowering you to design a life you deeply love, one where you make an income and an impact while maintaining a healthy body, a beautiful home, and deep relationship. Cause that, my friends, is my passion above and beyond even cake science.

Where the magic happens, my @sixpennyhome linen couch. Fact: I spend an inordinate amount of time right here. One of the realities of working from home...and I love it! 💻 During the day it's my office (its only competition for best office are my bathtub & bed...), and I spend hours in this nook drinking elixirs, matcha, and kombucha (I'm a beverage addict) and writing, editing, and planning. As a matter of fact, I'm sitting on the couch writing this caption! 🏡 There are definitely downsides to working from home, and sometimes I fantasize about a dope studio space (that still has a linen couch!), but the reality is I'm super informal, and I get dressed properly less than 25% of the time. The other 75% I'm sitting here in my linen bathrobe (cause I love linen!) or my workout clothes because I couldn't be bothered to change. And I love being able to roll out of bed, flow through my routine, and then get straight into work without having to move. It's true, I don't get out of the house much since I work here, but my introverted self is perfectly content with that. 🙈 The downsides to working from home & being my own boss are kind of the same as the upsides. I never have a reason to get all snazzy. I rarely leave the house save to go to the gym. But for me the freedom waaaaay outweighs the cost. If I ever start to feel like a troll, I just get made up and dressed up and go out with a friend. Although at this point my idea of dressed up = I have a bra on (and it isn't s sports bra). 🤔 What about you? Do you love leaving the house or dream of working in your pajamas? I'm definitely married to the PJ, messy bun, dry shampoo. and couch office lyfe! • • • • • creativityfound calledtobecreative creativelifehappylife makersgonnamake mycreativebiz thenativecreative doitfortheprocess handsandhustle creativepreneur thehappynow abmhappylife flashesofdelight communityovercompetition mybeautifulmess abmlifeissweet myunicornlife livefullyalive foundforaged darlingmovement livethelittlethings risingtidesociety cylcollective livemoremagic localmilkathome calmversation pocketsofmyhome nestandthrive howyouhome mydomaine seekinspirecreate

This woman. @Tifforelie, one of my best friends through thick & thin, has just released her first Lightroom preset...for freaking FREE! 🌼 From Paris to Stockholm to Nashville to Lexington to Chattanooga, she and I have stayed connected through what feels like multiple lives over the past four years. I'm not someone who has many close friends, and I'm deeply grateful for her magic in my life. ✨ Besides being an amazing friend & otherworldly beautiful inside & out, she's also an incredibly talented photographer & artist that has shared her work and her heart, even in her darkest hour of grief, freely and without hesitation so that others could learn how to find hope & beauty through brokenness & pain too. 🌾 I won't tell you all that she's been through here (it wouldn't fit), but go follow her and read her story if you're ready to be inspired. 📷 And most exciting! She has just decided to make her coveted Lightroom presets available! She has a gorgeous signature editing style, and she's generously decided to share her first preset ever for FREE! I don't know how long it will be available, so hustle over to her feed, follow her, and click the link in her profile to get that preset. It's editing magic, and took her years of experience to develop. livemoremagic whyweadventure • • • • • communityovercompeti risingtidesociety creativepreneur savvybusinessowner makewavesmonday livemoremagic calledtobecreative mycreativebiz ohwowyes creativeentrepreneur theeverygirl gritandvirtue theeverygirl theeverygirltravels makersmovement flashesofdelight thehappynow darlingmovement beingboss flashesofdelight thehappynow calmversation theartofslowliving parisjetaime whywelove passionpassport mytinyatlas inspiremyinstagram

Protein packed, vegan Lemony Kale + White Bean Detox Salad with Charred Tempeh, Avocado, and Quinoa. Brand new, healthy, quick & easy, and SO addictive! Click the link in my profile to get it now! 🙋🏻‍♂️ I actually call this the "Matt Salad" or "Malad" for short because @matthewlud whipped this up for our little team one afternoon, and we were like ummm...this needs to be on the blog! It takes 10 minutes to make, five if you're the kinda person that keeps cooked grains on the ready (you should!) AND I've included five creative ways to use the leftovers so you could whip up a big batch of this salad and get SIX meals out of it from soup to wraps to breakfast hash! Not to mention all of the ingredients are super easy to find and you likely already have some of them on hand (and if you're like us, it's stuff you pretty much always have in the fridge.) Dare I claim his salad brings kale's sexy back? I think I do. ✈️ I'm about to take off from the teeny tiny Waco airport after a mind blowing two days at @jennakutcher's mastermind learning from her and 28 other boss women. I really can't put into words how wonderful it was—I'm gonna need to process before I can really describe it to you. Suffice to say, I'm inspired, wheels are turning, and I'm psyched for 2018! I'm even thinking about starting a podcast. If I did, what would you want to hear me talk about? What type of people would you want me to interview? I'm curious what would get you to tune in!

Home sweet bedroom. I'm currently in the thick of the first day at @jennakutcher's mastermind, and while I'm missing home base (and my homies @matthewlud & EulalieWilla), I've already met so many inspiring women and gotten such clarity on the year ahead. ⚡️ Not only am I getting clarity in my business, I'm getting clarity in my mission. My mission has always been about teaching people how to be present and find sustenance of all kinds—that's where the name "Local Milk" came from. Local is a reference to being where you are when you're there, and Milk is a reference to sustenance of all kinds, not just physical. My mission has always been to help people create, nurture, and see the beauty in their everyday lives. My goal has always been to inspire. 🥀 But I realize that beautiful pictures can have the opposite effect. They can make people think I've got it together, that my life is perfect, or that I have it figured out. And that just couldn't be farther from the truth. I want to share more "behind the curtain" with you guys this year. I'm passionate about these things because I'm in this with you! I struggle everyday. I struggle with anxiety, with organization, with self-discipline, with perfectionism. I can't seem to make a deadline to save my life. I've struggled with food and body image issues my whole life that I'm only just starting to find freedom from, something I want to be more open about because I know that there are SO many of you in the same boat. 🌈 My secret to success (other than good old fashioned hard work + hours logged!) is that I didn't wait until I was perfect to start. Just start. Because spoiler alert: I'm still not perfect and none of us will ever be. Don't give your doubts the time of day. Don't look down. Celebrate every little success. Don't judge your first act by someone else's sixth. And you'll hear me say this a lot but remember: there's ALWAYS room at the top, and NO ONE starts there. livemoremagic• • • • • creativ calledtobecreative creativelifehappylife makersgonnamake mycreativebiz thenativecreative doitfortheprocess handsandhustle creativepreneur thehappynow abmhappylife flashesofdelight

Parisian perfection. Edited in Lightroom with a filter from my Travel Collection inspired by Paris, Morocco, Japan, and Greece. You can get my Lightroom preset collection through the link in my profile! It's for Desktop! 🎨 Prior to developing my presets I spent hours & hours editing and even then my photos weren't as consistent as I wanted them to be, and now it only takes a moment & it's always consistently my style. Talk about reclaiming my time! In the next month I'll be releasing my Food Collection...so excited for it! Food is a special subject, so I'm hoping to create a collection that addresses the color issues we run into when shooting food. ✈️ I'm currently en route not to Paris but rather Waco, TX to get down to business with @jennakutcher + team at the first Mastermind retreat of the year! To say I'm feeling excited is an understatement! So excited in fact, that not even being super sad to leave my baby (for the first time!) & my sweet husband @matthewlud AND having the contents of a water bottle dumped on my laptop in flight can get me down. Just praying they can fix it and that I don't lose data! Here better be a Genius Bar in Waco! Always an adventure. • • • • • feelfreefeed thatauthenticfeeling seekthesimplicity inspiremyinstagram verilymoment theartofslowliving aquietstyle momentsofmine littlestoriesofmylife postitfortheaesthetic momentslikethese livethelittlethings thehappynow pursuepretty darlingmovement abmhappylife simplepleasures morningslikethese still_life_gallery searchwandercollect livecolorfully theeverydayproject todays_simplicity flashesofdelight darlingweekend gatheringslikethese livesimple

My kitchen shelves are all stocked up on @woodenspoonherbs magic to get me through the rest of winter. My favorites are her Super Green Protein Powder which stars in the new Coconut Matcha Latte recipe on my blog which you can find via the link in my profile (and in my post-workout smoothie!!) + her Anxiety Ally tincture (cause I'm a high strung, gal 🙋🏻). What are some of your favorite magical add ins for potions, elixirs, and smoothies? . . I actually met Lauren (the boss lady behind @woodenspoonherbs) in a creative writing class during one of my many ill-starred attempts to get a college degree. Since then she's created this grass roots, holistic, inspiring business and developed herbal products I'm obsessed with...it's been awesome to watch her grow and thrive! You can find her self-care interview over on @golubkakitchen right now, and I highly recommend giving it a read. If herbalism, natural healing, wellness, and food as medicine are your jam or you want to learn more, follow @woodenspoonherbs & check out her shop. You'll love it. . . I know a lot of you are makers and creatives that are bursting at the seams to take that passion and turn it into a living like Lauren has. My advice is to follow as many creative boss lady's as you can, subscribe to heir email lists, read their blogs, look at their shops, and learn from them. Other than Lauren two of my favorite female led businesses are @blockshoptextiles and @elizsuzann. Tag your favorite girl boss (or aspiring girl boss!!) in the comments. Let's make 2018 the year we REALLY support other women because a big yes to communityovercompetition! livemoremagic livemoremagic • • • • • creativityfound creativelifehappylife makersgonnamake mycreativebiz thenativecreative doitfortheprocess handsandhustle creativepreneur thehappynow abmhappylife flashesofdelight mybeautifulmess abmlifeissweet myunicornlife livefullyalive foundforaged darlingmovement livethelittlethings risingtidesocietysomd livemoremagic localmilkathome calmversation pocketsofmyhome nestandthrive howyouhome mydomaine seekinspirecreate

New potion recipe on the blog! A vegan Coconut Matcha Latte, supercharged with Super Green Protein Powder from @woodenspoonherbs. She & I collaborated on this recipe, and it's now an essential part of my morning routine. . . You can make it as sweet or unsweet as you like depending on the liquid you use (I.e. Sweetened coconut milk vs. unsweetened) and whether you add sweetener. I like to make my homemade coconut milk with a bit of monkfruit sweetener in it (a zero cal, natural sweetener) or maple syrup. And I also add monkfruit sweetener and vanilla bean paste to my matcha. I like it sweet but not too sweet! I'd play with it to find what level of sweetness you like! . . It also has MCT oil or coconut butter or oil added to up brain power and satiety for the day. Hooray for healthy fats! And the Super Green Protein Powder is an awesome blend of nettle, oatstraw, and moringa (which you can read more about on the blog if you're unfamiliar!) . . Anyhow, you can find the recipe for how I make it on the blog via the link in my profile! It's an awesome addition to the new year! eatmoremagic localmilkrecipes • • • • • f52grams feedfeed huffposttaste buzzfeast eeeeeats beautifulcuisines thekitchn foodandwine forkyeah yahoofood onthetable buzzfeedfood vscofood foodstyling foodphotography lifeandthyme eater heresmyfood foodblogger gloobyfood eattheworld lifeandthyme tastingtable letscookvegan spoonfeed feedfeedvegan foodblogfeed onmytable

Good morning + HAPPY FREAKING NEW YEAR!!! ✨🥂✨🎉✨ I made a gift for you guys to celebrate the new year, a free guide, The Slow Morning Routine : 8 Simple Habits to Calm the Chaos. You can get it through the link in my profile! I like to describe it as a "Local Milkified" version of @timferriss habits to win the day. . . ☀️ These are the habits that prime me for productivity, mindfulness, and peace. Let this be the year you reclaim your time, your dreams, and your life. These habits are an *awesome* first step towards reclaiming your time & being proactive about self-care, and while it took me years to figure out this stuff needed to be a BIG priority, hopefully you won't be as daft as me and you'll start NOW. I attribute a ton of the success I've had to these habits. . . And while we're reclaiming our time, let's also leave some stuff behind in 2017. Let this be the year you ditch your fear of failure and lack of confidence. Because that lame voice that says a dream life is for other people? Yeah, we're going to leave that behind too. . . And while we're at it? Guilt, obligation, FOMO, comparison, competition, and the scarcity mentality...those are OUT this year! Because I know what's possible when you ditch that noise. You are enough, you are deserving, and you are going to kill it in 2018! Love you guys and thank you SO MUCH for all the support in 2017...I hope I can return the favor!

Holy 2017! The year that saw us rent an apartment in Paris and start spending over half of our year abroad between there and Japan. The year we renovated our house. Traveled the world with our baby Eulalie. The 3rd year of my relationship with @matthewlud. . . The year I realized SO many mistakes that were keeping me down in business and in life. The year I started lifting weights, chose a publisher for my cookbook, and invested in my business by signing up for @jennakutcher's mastermind. The year I learned to negotiate being a mom with owning my own business and working full time. . . It's been a wild ride through over 10 countries, and I feel like I've come out on the other side of this year as a different person. A stronger person. . . This is the year I decided something quite radical: I don't believe in balance. I belief in passion, ambition, love, service, and boundaries. I believe in going all in. And knowing when to back down. I believe in seasons—seasons of crazy work, seasons of relaxation, seasons of self, seasons of others. And I believe in knowing when it's time to make a change. Balance implies that everything always has equal weight. And I don't think anything great was ever made that way be it a great work of art or a great company. So here's to passion, to love, to going all in, and to knowing your boundaries. To giving all you've got but knowing when you need to replenish. If this sounds like something you can get behind, click the link in my profile and hit the button that says "Join the Community" because I have SO much for you next year! Happy New Year! Holed up in TN watching Trolls for the 10th time with Eula, and wishing I was wearing sequins in Paris!🥂 • • • • • communityovercompeti risingtidesociety creativepreneur parisjetaime makewavesmonday livemoremagic calledtobecreative mycreativebiz ohwowyes creativeentrepreneur theeverygirl gritandvirtue creativityfound creativelifehappylife tnchustler pursuepretty theeverydayproject prettycityparis stylemepretty lifeofaphotographer mastinlabs theknot bedeeplyrooted parismaville girlboss makersmovement flashesofdelight thehappynow darlingmovement beingboss

Want to know all about my face palm fails and epiphanies of 2017? Yes? Well, get ready to grab a cup of tea & settle in because tomorrow my end of year newsletter goes out packed with everything I learned from my mistakes (oh yes, so many!) in 2017! Get it via the link in profile and clicking the button that says "Join the Community!" . 🥂 I'll be talking about what worked for my life and business, what didn't, and what that taught me. Because 2017 was a BIG year for learning lessons both in my business and in my personal life. I learned how I should *actually* be using social media (yep, I was doing it wrong and you might be too! 😱), a new way of keeping healthy that works for me, who I really want to work for (hint: it's YOU!), and more. . . If you don't want to miss the newsletter—it goes out tomorrow!— or any future newsletters, then click the link in my profile and click the big button that says "Join the Community!" Once you're all signed up and ready to go, you'll get my welcome letter! It's a goodie too. My subscribers don't just get new blog posts delivered to them—they get all the freebies I create, access to a secret library where said free stuff lives, exclusive content, and my realest real talk about all things life and business. You know I LOVE creative writing, but my e-mails are just straight me, Beth, talking to you, my friend. No fancy verbal footwork. As ANY of my close friends and family (or husband! 👋🏻🙈 @matthewlud) could tell you, the way I speak in person is pretty direct, often goofy, and peppered with a generous amount of slang and 💥. 😬Click the link in profile to join the tribe now & start getting my letters! • • • • • creativityfound calledtobecreative creativelifehappylife makersgonnamake mycreativebiz thenativecreative doitfortheprocess handsandhustle creativepreneur thehappynow abmhappylife flashesofdelight communityovercompetition mybeautifulmess abmlifeissweet myunicornlife livefullyalive foundforaged darlingmovement livethelittlethings risingtidesociety cylcollective livemoremagic localmilkathome calmversation pocketsofmyhome nestandthrive howyouhome mydomaine seekinspirecreate

We're hiring! For video! Calling all local Chattanooga & surrounding area videographers. . 🎥 We are looking for someone to join our team to do video (including sound) and editing for some upcoming projects. It doesn't have to be the same person doing both, so if you happen to be ace at one and the other isn't as much your thing, don't hesitate to apply! . 🙋🏻If you're a video editor and work remotely, that could work too, but we are looking for someone near by to do the shooting as it's a crazy schedule that likely will move around! If you're interested please email me at beth @localmilkblog.com with your availability, experience, equipment, and (most importantly!) examples of your work. Bonus if you have experience with live streaming, lighting, and overhead filming! The videos we will be shooting will (mostly) NOT be cinematic style but rather instructional videos, overhead recipe videos, and YouTube style talking down the barrel of the camera videos. Know someone who might be interested? Tag them in the comments! . 🌾 And yes, I'm leaving the wreaths we made up all winter! If you want to make winter wreaths you can find the tutorial on my blog!

I hope you all had a magical Christmas & are finding some rest today! I know I am. I'm taking this day off to reflect on how I can best serve you guys in the new year. . . For me that means focusing on writing my book and ecourses so that anyone can have access to all my secrets, recipes, and everything I've learned over the years about cooking beautiful, simple food at home as well as branding, marketing, and all the things it takes to turn a creative passion a profitable business. It means taking the week off of social media, and being quiet so I can focus. It's so important to give yourself permission to step back and take the time you need, I promise the world can wait. . . A lot of what I had planned on the blog didn't happen this month due to life happening instead (read: sick baby, twice), and at first I wasn't okay with it because I felt I'd let you guys down. But after spending a wonderful day with my family and watching Eula enjoy Christmas, I have a lot of peace with letting it go. And I promise you'll be able to find all of my favorite holiday recipes in my book *and* all of my favorite goodies that would normally be in the gift guide will appear in the shop section of my site next week! . . So, I'll see you back on here after the new year. I might still post on stories if the spirit strikes me & my monthly newsletter, The Art of Slow Living, goes out next Sunday, so you can find me there! You can sign up for it by visiting my blog and subscribing or just by getting my free guide, Instagram Secret Weapons, my top 10 favorite apps & tools for insta! You can find both via the link in profile! livemoremagic • • • • • moment seekthesimplicity thatauthenticfeeling inspiremyinstagram liveunscripted feelfreefeed aquietstyle theartofslowliving littlestoriesofmylife verilymoment postitfortheaesthetic folklife momentsofmine darlingmovement holdthemoments simplepleasures thehappynow pursuepretty petitejoys livethelittlethings livelittlethings flashesofdelight lovelysquares darlingweekend morningslikethese simplejoys livebeautifully forahappymoment subjectlight

We're getting super festive here at chez Local Milk—mulled cider, eggnog, cheese plate, wrapping presents, a fire in the hearth, and Christmas music. Pie and cookies too, of course. I hope you're all cozy! Merry Christmas Eve! What are you favorite Christmas traditions? For me it's all about the nog, tunes, fire, and cookies!

Currently cooking up a vegetarian mushroom bourguignon and yet another cherry bourbon pie as I perfect the recipes. I'm not even starting to get tired of it either. Trying to decide on a lattice design for this one, feeling very inspired as per usual by @judy.kim and @thekitchenmccabe when it comes to pie design. Know of any other pie art ninjas I should check? . . While I don't really have the monk like patience I find necessary for pie art, I'm in it for the grammmzzz. That final photo is soooo worth the tedious cutting and braiding and fiddling. But truth be told if IG wasn't a thing I'd probably just slap a flaky, sugary top crust on, cut a vent, and be done. As a matter of fact that's exactly what I did at my Christmas party and we all ate our slices standing around the kitchen island. Truth time. 🙈🤷🏻‍♀️eatmoremagic piegram piestagram • • • • • lifeandthyme tastemade rslove mycommontable eattheworld heresmyfood foodandwine foodblogfeed huffposttaste beautifulcuisines tastingtable yahoofood thekitchn piesofinstagram onthetable f52grams buzzfeedtasty feedfeed onmytable gatheringslikethese foodstyling still_life_gallery gloobyfood theartofslowliving buzzfeast hautecuisines vscofood

Some holiday table inspiration for you guys as Christmas fast approaches! We had a small Christmas dinner party this week with all of the people who have helped us out this year, and it was magical. It really does take a village and without the people who help us with the house, the business, and Eula, I would not be able to do what I do. . So if you ever get a case of the comparisons on Instagram, I want to be the one over here shouting: none of us is perfect, even if our brands feed is curated, that isn't real life! It's merely a sliver of a moment, 1/125 of a second frozen in post-processed time. . Real life is messes, sick days, missed deadlines, and Netflix. It's ordering pizza and knowing when to fold 'em. It's carving out beauty whenever and wherever we can, and making sure we don't miss the beauty in the journey, in the process. If you live for the finish line you won't be living at all. And you'll be sorely disappointed to find there is no finish line. So don't wait for tomorrow to be happy. Don't wait for perfect. And know that no one is perfect, least of all me. I am someone who knows how to ask for help when I can't be all things (which is basically all of the time!) So a big thanks to @danjnel & @linensandgrains, @alistickers & @jordansticker, @nataciar81 & @johnnycate for letting us borrow her! Without those homies, I'd be a mess and so would everything else! Tag the people that made your world go around this year in the comments to say a big thanks! livemoremagic localmilkgathering theartofslowliving • • • • • pursuepretty flashesofdelight thehappynow livethelittlethings darlingmovement petitejoys livecolorfully abmlifeiscolorful darlingweekend postitfortheaesthetic seekthesimplicity myunicornlife calledtobecreative abmhappylife dscolor morningslikethese finditliveit lovelysquares creativityfound verilymoment risingtidesociety acolorstory chasinglight abmlifeissweet communityovercompetition theeverydayproject feelfreefeed

Double tap if you're no stranger to frustration! I think so much of our success in life is determined by how we handle set backs. And while they're inevitable, they don't have to knock you down. . . 🙇🏻‍♀️ I'm resting at the moment, not ideal in the middle of a work day. Halfway through a shoot my eyes went all blind spots and rainbow squiggles. It's happened enough I knew exactly what it was: a migraine coming on. I popped some medicine and kept working, but the nausea & headache came all the same, albeit without the ferocity they would have. But there I was, totally flowing in the middle of my work day stopped in my tracks. And the light is so perfect right now! . . 💆🏻 But over the years I've learned to lean into set backs, to not fight them or try to wish them away. Whether it's a migraine, a tech failure, a red light when I'm late, or something bigger, I choose to believe everything—big & small—happens for a good reason. Easier said than done when it comes to the really big stuff in life, but it's a really simple way to reframe the mild to moderate inconveniences and struggles in life and stay positive. . . 🛁 So I'm taking this cue from the universe to lay back, breath, take a hot bath, and wait patiently for it to pass. Because frustration doesn't cure anything, and it may be a bit Pollyanna, but I believe not only is this migraine not a bad thing (even though I feel 🤕 ), but that in ways I may know or may never know, my day and life will be better for it. How do you handle life's curve balls? . . 💐 And a shout out to @hollyswafford for making this pretty arrangement at our workshop, it exemplifies the zen I'm channeling right now! livemoremagic • • • • • pursuepretty flashesofdelight thehappynow livethelittlethings darlingmovement petitejoys abmlifeiscolorful darlingweekend postitfortheaesthetic seekthesimplicity myunicornlife calledtobecreative abmhappylife theartofslowliving dscolor morningslikethese finditliveit lovelysquares creativityfound verilymoment risingtidesociety livemoremagic acolorstory chasinglight abmlifeissweet communityovercompetition theeverydayproject feelfreefeed thatauthenticfeeling

Old school Local Milk moody pie vibes from one of our workshops this weekend. My pie game stands totally leveled up thanks to @bravetart's old fashioned flaky pie crust method (you can find it on @seriouseats) Forever grateful. Now I can braid and stamp and lattice like an Instagram pie ninja, no special equipment other than my paws required. 💁🏻 . 🍒 This is a Vanilla Bean + Bourbon Cherry Pie recipe I've been working on. The recipe will likely be in my book! For now, suffice to say toss some cherries with some bourbon, sugar, vanilla bean paste, and cornstarch. Basically. . . 📷 My food photography e-course is all sold out, but in 2018 we will be launching a series of e-courses that will teach all the things I've been teaching at these retreats and workshops for years: photography, styling, slow living, branding, digital marketing, and building a life & career you love. I firmly believe a dream life and job is something anyone can achieve. You'll be able to get each module individually to suit your needs or all together in bundles if you're ready to go all in. I'm so excited to finally be able to help more people with everything I teach! There will be video, workbooks, and every ounce of information I have packed into them. Let me know in the comments what *you* want to know, so I can make sure my courses cover it! And subscribe on my blog via the link in profile to make sure you don't miss a single launch! 2018 is the year to manifest & embrace those dreams! • • • • • lifeandthyme tastemade rslove mycommontable eattheworld heresmyfood eatmoremagic foodblogfeed huffposttaste beautifulcuisines tastingtable yahoofood thekitchn onthetable f52grams buzzfeedtasty forkyeah feedfeed onmytable gatheringslikethese foodstyling still_life_gallery theartofslowliving buzzfeast foodblogger vscofood foodstyling pieart piecrust

One of the questions we discussed at this weekend's workshops: When you're passionate about so many things, how on earth can you ever focus and figure out where to commit your precious time, energy, and money? How do you choose when you love so much? Food, art, travel, style, design, wellness, family, alllllllthethings! Well, I challenge you to ask yourself a few questions. . What does your dream day look like? Where are you, who are you with, what are you doing? Break it down minute by minute. What does luxury mean to you? Grinding your coffee in the morning, feeding your chickens, and then tending a luscious garden? A Birkin bag & a private yacht?Backpacking around the world? Define luxury for yourself. . And what does security look like for you? Paying off debt? A roof over your head? Saving for your kids? Buying a home? Saving up an emergency fund? Define that too. . And lastly, what do you do when you're procrastinating? What is so easy to do that you don't need self discipline to do it? What do you love that much? . Answer those questions and you are well on your way to knowing where to start, where to focus. Brainstorm all the ways you can to turn that thing you just can't help but do into luxury and security as you define it. Hint: think of ways you can lessen pain and/or simplify or beautify life for other people. How can your gift and passion make their lives better? Define the life you want, the thing you love, and how you can serve. . There's the path. As for me, brekkie in this bed is definitely my idea of luxury! If these ideas resonate with you, you would enjoy my monthly newsletters!

If you don't want to hear how much I love this man, stop here. This was taken on our wedding day in Iceland as @matthewlud & I drove up the wild coast towards hot springs & waterfalls. . . : We'd met five months prior to this photo of him picking me flowers on the side of the road being taken, and I was pregnant with our daughter Eulalie four months after that. To call it a whirlwind would be an understatement. He was a tsunami. 🌊 . . My life changed in one day. My whole world expanded. Sometimes I try to wrap my mind around what I would do without him. And I just can't. My greatest fear in a relationship is my love fading. It always has faded. I've never been able to make it more than a year or so without feeling like my relationship was more roommate than romance. Until him. I'm 34 and this is the first time I've ever still had butterflies years later. Or pterodactyls. Yeah, you give me pterodactyls, babe. Apropos of nothing, I love you. . . When I think about all of my mistakes in life, of all the suffering, I know it was all necessary to lead me to this place, this family, this life. It's all a journey, the good and bad. We never "arrive". We keep walking. If you're somewhere less flower fields and more scorched earth in your life right now, know I was there too. There's always a corner to turn. Keep an eye out for it. livemoremagic milklovescoffee marriage • • • • • feelfreefee thatauthenticfeeling seekthesimplicity inspiremyinstagram verilymoment theartofslowliving aquietstyle momentsofmine littlestoriesofmylife postitfortheaesthetic momentslikethese livethelittlethings thehappynow pursuepretty darlingmovement abmhappylife simplepleasures morningslikethese still_life_gallery searchwandercollect livecolorfully theeverydayproject todays_simplicity flashesofdelight darlingweekend gatheringslikethese livesimple

Last year's Christmas table. I'm busy planning this next weekend's workshops here as well as our annual Christmas dinner with a few friends the week after. . . We've had a few last minute cancellations for the workshop due to illness, so we have an opening on each day, this Friday and Saturday! The tickets are first come first serve and go fast, so grab your spot via the link in profile! . . We'll be diving deep into The Art of Food Photography from styling, to cameras, to editing, to sharing it all on social media. I'm so excited to welcome you into my home, serve my food, gather around this very table, and share everything I've learned about food photography over the years, including how I plan to shoot my book. This is probably the LAST workshop I will be teaching in the flesh for a long time to come as I focus on my book, my family, and growing other aspects of the business in 2018, so don't miss it!

The streets of Montmartre. I'm missing Paris this week, so I spontaneously booked tickets to head back to our apartment in the Marais in February for a quick visit to catch up with friends, eat all the things, take walks, and cook every beautiful thing I can find. • • I'm very happy in Tennessee—I'm loving my routine—and this next trip will be an experiment to see if I can maintain my routine (namely workout, morning routine, and a clean house) while elsewhere. My whole life I've struggled with routine. I'm the sort of person that likes to do whatever I feel like doing in a moment regardless of what I had resolved to do (or what anyone else expects me to do! 😬) Not a temperament conducive to habit making. • • But I'm in love with my morning routine now. It sets the stage for the rest of my day. It's basically a localmilkified version of @timferriss habits to win the day. It's 100% true that when I have a good morning, the chances of a productive day are much higher and even if I only tick a few of my boxes, I feel like it's a win. What is your morning routine? I'd love to see if there are some helpful habits that I haven't thought of yet? Would you guys be interested in learning more about the routine that's worked for me? livemoremagic • • • • • france parisjetaime igersparis topparisphoto parismonamour parismaville loves_paris igersfrance super_france pariscartepostale eiffeltower 파리 パリ pariscityvision parigi parisphoto Париж visitparis hello_france loves_france_ toureiffel topfrancephoto unlimitedparis 巴黎 french instaparis iloveparis paris_focus_on parisian

I'm about to go full on Christmas elf up in here. We're wrapping up our annual gift guide for 2017, but in the mean time I've still got a TON of awesome gift choices in guides from past years—go get your elf on via the link in profile! I've also got the link for a gorgeous organic wreath tutorial there. And of course my early Christmas gift to you beautiful people: my Instagram Secret Weapons Guide! Get it allllll! ✨✨✨ . . Other than finishing the gift guide today is JAM packed—I'm about to hit the gym (hahahaha I just said "hit the gym" who the eff am I?!), then it's three power hours of work before the dentist (big thumbs down), and THEN the fun part of my day: I'm having a chat with the force of nature that is @jennakutcher for her podcast goaldiggerpodcast. She's been a huge inspiration to me, *and* I took the plunge and invested in my business big time by joining her 2018 Mastermind. I don't think I've ever had so much hope and excitement for a year ahead. 2018, you gonna be good. Anyhow, I'll let you guys know how the interview goes + when the podcast airs! localmilkchristmas livemoremagic • • • • • flashesofdelight thehappynow pursuepretty livethelittlethings darlingmovement livecolorfully abmlifeiscolorful petitejoys darlingweekend forahappymoment planetdiscovery myunicornlife abmhappylife acolorstory dscolor calledtobecreative seekthesimplicity visualoflife exploringtheglobe finditliveit morningslikethese creativityfound theartofslowliving theglobewanderer chasinglight
