I am so thankful for late date nights with my hubby! Thankful for family that tucked our babies into bed so that we could have a night off. But my goodness... mornings are always a real reality after a late night! 3 kids at 6am, good morning!!!! 😃 #kristareynoldsphotography
Thinking about the fact that from certain angles wearing these glasses I strongly resemble Napoleon Dynamite. It's okay though he's pretty awesome, in fact I'm kinda proud because I've learned life lessons from that guy- like for example- it's okay to save your tots for later and to be confident in your dance moves man. Also vote for Pedro.
I wore this Victoria Beckham for Target dress this weekend to a wedding. It's perfect for a chillier spring day AND it's on sale for $28!!! Screenshot or 'like' this pic to shop the product details with the @liketoknow.it app!! Like it's a steal. http://liketk.it/2rs58 #liketkit#LTKunder100#LTKunder50#LTKsalealert
After my daughter turned her daddy down more than once when he offered to take her outside (because she wanted to be by mommy), I figured it was a good indicator that she needed some one-on-one time with me. So I took that sweet girl on a walk and we had a grand time. (She also never let go of my hand the entire time!) 💕😍 #qualitytime#mommyanddaughter#springnights#shessosweet
Hiii!!! It's been a long time since I've updated this little space on the internet. To be honest with you, social media was consuming my life and I found that when I was going out to dinner with friends and family my first thoughts were "let's scope out the best spot for a photo" or " you can't eat that yet, I have to try to get a picture".... basically, I was tired of not living in the moment. I decided to walk away for a while and just enjoy my life without social media and that included blogging. It was REFRESHING. However, I did find myself missing the community I had built. So, I started brainstorming a way to ease myself back into blogging, however, every time I tried I just didn't feel connected to my site anymore... that's when the re-branding began! Tomorrow at 8 am Eastern Time the new site will be up and launched. I'm so excited to start this new journey with you!! #viewfromabove#coffeetable#lovelysquares#mplsblogger
"This isn't forever, you are constantly changing and so are the people around you. Let yourself grow and blossom; let others do the same. Embrace the now, but always look forward to tomorrow."
Life has been heavy lately. The past few days have been a lot of hurt and tears and emptiness. So tonight means pampering and giving myself some little moments of peace. And maybe tomorrow will be easier. ☁️☁️
Taking on this Monday with my camera in hand and a cup o' joe. What a lovely surprise this weather was after a long week of cold, cold, rain- on the agenda today: a few appointments, a mother daughter date and maybe a few more cups of coffee along the way. What's your favorite way to spend a Monday?
Monday morning playtime- we're both exhausted from the 4 month sleep regression that just started (excuse me while I cry), but the sun is shining, it's supposed to be WARM again today, AND the bachelorette starts up again tonight. Lots to be thankful for 😉 #madeformondays#thankfulforthislife#sleepregression
Was my most ultra productive self yesterday at the counter of @almampls - today I'm on the struggle bus just to organize my room because I've been sucked into @thecwriverdale, seriously so obsessed! 😱 (and in case you were wondering, the title of this newspaper article was "Sauvignon Blanc for the savvy". 😂)
It might still be chilly out today but I'm dreaming of last weekend's weather! Come on sunshine, we're ready for summer! That's why I'm sharing my favorite summer pieces - like this flamingo skirt - on the blog! Check them all out at www.rachelslookbook.com! And the link is in my profile. Happy Sunday friends! #flamingoprint#whatiwore#summerstyle
It's my hubby's birthday!! Someday I'd like to have the time to make our birthday cakes from scratch- for now we'll just use boxed mixes with some personal touches- like the chocolate ganache (+ a few secret ingredients), that I used to glue this double layer triple (quadruple if you count the ganache) chocolate cake together. Is it time to sing happy birthday yet? #getinmybelly#happybirthday#birthdaycake#triplechocolate
Fresh white kicks to start your weekend off right! You guys, literally within the day I've received three more boudoir inquiries. What is life. Who wants to do an in-home session for an anniversary? I have a feeling this summer is about trying new things!
Such a fun time shooting with the lovely @lindsayamarcus last night! •
Can I just say how much I love minneapolis, no matter where I travel and who I meet, I always find myself back in this city. Maybe because its home or maybe it's because of the atmosphere that is only found here. I might leave but my heart will always stay.
Be on the look out for a new blog post all about it soon :)!
The way @victoriabeckham intended it 🌸 Today's #ootd for my baby sister's graduation, still mesmeriezed by this little dress from the Victoria Beckham x @target collection because 🐰 will always be a statement! 💖 #VBxTarget 📷: @badresident

This month!!!! My goodness this month has been hard. It has been busy, and overwhelming and I am finding myself feeling like at times that I am just keeping my head above water. June will bring so much change for us. For today though, it's Georgia's last day of Preschool and over on the blog I'm talking about what it's like to let Jesus guide our empty nets. Link in profile
Lately, I've been taking risks, learning what it means to overcome, to refrain from holding back and let go of fears that were tolling on my future.
For the first time I've stopped caring what others wanted for my life, and what others think. Instead I'm focusing on something new.... not being sorry for who I am, celebrating each wall I tear down, and learning that even the tiniest of steps should be celebrated because it only brings me closer to exactly who and what I want to be.
