    Local Love // Another Awesome Opening in Modesto

    I live in the city where I was born. And if you’ve been reading Lovely Indeed for a while, you know that I left Modesto for a few years, came back (on purpose), and am doing everything I can to spread local love in this town my family calls home. So when a local business comes to me to collaborate, I am always over the moon. Seeing other people invest in our community in a way that makes it better for others is truly one of my favorite things. Which is why I am SO PUMPED to help spread the word about the newest incredible local venture, the Save Mart…

    The Productivity Tool Kit launches tomorrow

    Tomorrow is the day! Toward the end of last year, I realized that I was feeling pulled to help people in a very specific way. On the Lovely Indeed blog and social channels, we do our very best to provide super useful content that can elevate your everyday. But I’ve been feeling for some time like I wanted to go deeper and provide more. I have been wanting to create things that can not only brighten a day, but transform a life. So I started thinking. What are my true strengths? What questions do people come to me with over and over? What am I passionate about? Where do people…

    Happy Friday + Some Big Feels

    Happy Friday! It’s been a while since I’ve done a Friday post but I’m having some big feels today and my fingers made their way to the keyboard. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you probably know that we’re launching our new online course, The Productivity Tool Kit, next week! And this weekend feels like the home stretch on my end, because we’re putting the finishing touches on the whole shebang before we push GO on Tuesday.

    What to Expect from The Productivity Tool Kit

    Hey friends! We’re just under a week away from launching our new course The Productivity Tool Kit, and I have butterflies in my stomach! I have taken my fair share of online courses. Courses on parenting, courses on marketing, courses on blogging, and so much more. And after having those experiences, there were a few things I knew down deep in my heart that I wanted as I was creating The Productivity Tool Kit. First, it’s imperative to me that it brings about a transformation in your life. I want you to take this course and then see it facilitate a positive change in your everyday.

    What to Do in Carmel-By-The-Sea

    The last couple of times I was in Carmel, we were toting along two adorable toddlers, so we really just scratched the surface. But a few weeks ago I got the chance for a weekend getaway in Carmel-By-The-Sea on a girls’ trip with my sister, and I had forgotten how fun it is for a grownups-only trip! We had such a lovely time, and Carmel is truly one of the most special places in California. (We included it on our list here!) Where to Stay in Carmel, California We were lucky to connect with Hofsas House in Carmel, who hosted us for the weekend. Hofsas House started as a small…

    DIY Paint Pen Pattern No-Carve Pumpkins

    Little white pumpkins have become my favorite canvas around this time of year, in case you haven’t noticed. I go to the store and buy a bag of ’em and sit and stare at them until I decide what my plan is. This year, I just kept thinking of these patterns and how much fun I had making them, so I decided to give the pumpkins the same treatment. Good decision, me. And hey, you can do this to any size or color pumpkin you want! The best part? You don’t have to do that thing where you hollow out the pumpkin guts and get your hands all sticky. You’re…

    How I Stay Motivated + Inspired to Blog

    Welcome to the new Pick My Brain series! I truly love being a resource for people, and feel grateful for the opportunity to share the things that I’ve learned and that I love. I wish I could sit down for a cup of tea with every person that asks to pick my brain, but there just aren’t enough hours in the week! So every so often, I’ll ask for your “pick my brain” questions over on Instagram and answer them here. It’s a great way for me to serve you as a resource, and hopefully help more people at the same time! Here’s one of our recent questions: How do…

    Pumpkin Donut Holes Two Ways

    It’s a red letter day, gang! Today is the day that I finally get to introduce you to our new food contributors, Goodie2Spoons! The girls behind Goodie2Spoons are Katie and Allie. We met through mom stuff (Katie’s little girl is one of Hank’s BFFs) and I quickly discovered that these two gals might be the best cooks I know in real life. Every once in a while they’ll be trying out a new recipe and a magical plate of something delicious will show up on our doorstep for us to “taste test.” So it hit me like a ton of bricks one day that DUH we should collaborate so they can…
