Hi there 👋! It’s been a little while since I’ve introduced myself to all of the beautiful souls who have joined me in this dance! I’m Anna, my wonderful husband Brian snapped this photo of me yesterday while we were working in our barn on wedding blooms! When you get your hands on gorgeous mock orange like this you always stop for a picture. I’ve been a horticulture lover for half of my lifetime (so far!) I fell in love with all things flora in the 10th grade and my passion has taken us on a beautiful journey! In the last year it’s moved us from my hometown to a farm/garden property that can best be described as a dream come true. Living out here is an honor and I can see how my path to @jubilee.gardens was paved by long hours of working for landscaping companies (waking up at 5 am everyday) and Brian’s law career which he graciously gave up to help support me in my (now our) life’s work. Everyday that I am here I see how this place is teaching me valuable lessons on life (and death) and life again! It’s so refreshing and expanding to just be here. My wish that I share with you and the universe is that one day this place is open to others to come, replenish their minds, bodies and spirits. We’re not quite sure what that looks like but I can feel that it’s going to be great! If you have any advice for us or words of wisdom to share, we are here to receive. Sending you all so much love!

Happy Memorial Day weekend, friends. Whether you’ll be at the pool, lake, beach, or just in the backyard, make sure to sunscreen up! PS: @beautycounter is running a Mem weekend promotion and you get 2 sunscreen products (worth $35) when you spend $125 on the site. It’s a great time to stock up on favorites and try our safer sunscreen at the same time. Shop through the link in bio or message me with questions!

The garage is filled with boxes, the walls are empty, and we are still sleeping on a mattress on the floor. I also can't find certain things, like my letterboard for Oliver's milestone photos, putting me even more behind than normal (he is already seven months, you guys 😭). BUT, this lovely, light filled corner of the house is set up and it's so nice to have a designated area for the boys to play. Looking forward to creating many memories right here with these two.

I'm on my way out the door to Idaho with my three littlest men while Morg stays behind and finally gets our #tinyhouseonwheels out on our land! Can't wait to come back and actually drive home.

We talk alot about the overwhelm with marketing your small business in todays ever changing marketplace. We chat with lots of small business owners who have amazing ideas but think they lack the time to execute them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
~⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes, we said think because it can be done...you just have to SET A DATE to set aside time and space to devote to your idea.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
~⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is how we make social media work for our clients...during a 1hr discovery meeting with us we pull out 6 months worth of content and ideas from your head (even when you weren't realising it!) and then put it into motion! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
~⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It works because you've made space and time to meet with us, to brainstorm and then, thats when the real work gets done.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

No one warned me that it’s basically impossible NOT to drop your phone on your baby or dog when they’re sleeping on your chest 🤦🏻‍♀️ how to feel like a horrible human in 2 steps! Little Poncho Harris got his you-know-whats removed and it’s been traumatic for one reason only: he hasn’t eaten since last night 😱 basically the end of the world in his mind. Happy it’s the weekend and we can nurse him back to health! #staffordshirebullterrier #theeverygirl #dogmom

THREE DAY WEEKEND: ACTIVATED 💙💙💙

THREE DAY WEEKEND: ACTIVATED 💙💙💙

FRIDAY INTRODUCTIONS 👇🏼
Since it’s Friday and I have some new peeps hanging around here (hey guys) I figured I’d share some fun facts with y’all!
...
Here we go:
1. I am graduating 👩🏼‍🎓 from the University of Delaware in ONE week with my masters in speech-language pathology
2. I love painting my nails 💅🏼 as a form of self care/relaxation... I used to be horrible at it but I’ve been improving
3. I could watch The Office, New Girl, 13 Going On 30, and The Princess Diaries a million times over. My favorite tv shows 📺 and movies 🎥 !
4. I played with Barbies 🎀 until I was in middle school. My neighbor and I would make up super elaborate/intricate storylines like we were writers of a tv drama 😂
5. If we go out to eat I will probably order a cheeseburger...🍔 it’s my fav food. I’m also in a committed relationship to mozzarella sticks
6. I’m a huge planner person. ✍🏼 I’ve used a planner for as long as I can remember. Currently using a @plumpaper planner that I love!!!
7. Purple 💜 is my favorite color
8. The glasses I’m wearing in this pic 🤓are fake. I don’t need glasses but I have had braces!
9. I played the flute in 5th through 8th grade and was seated 2nd chair behind one of my really good friends.
10. I’m a spin class addict 🚲 and there’s no place I’d rather be after a tough day than pushing myself as far as I can go in that dark room
...

This girl. Everything is always a show!

This girl. Everything is always a show!

You can have a successful business and only have a few solid clients.
You can have a successful business and work out of a tiny room in your home.
You can have a successful business and wear leggings every day.
You can have a successful business and not make 6 figures.
You can have a successful business and roll out of bed at 9 am.
You can have a successful business and be self taught at your craft.
You can have a successful business and battle anxiety.
You can have a successful business and only clock a few hours a day.

These are all truths from my own path but at one point I told myself I couldn't have a successful business because of all of these things. Sometimes it's about telling yourself day after day..."actually I can," 💪🏻

Mother's day weekend here in France! I got a fresh mani today and hopefully will get a pretty bouquet this weekend when we head back into Nice. 🤗🤗
I love being a maman to my 4 filles. Raising them under the same roof and seeing the different identities they are blossoming into is the most magnificent thing. ❤️

Despite the forecast saying rain, we knew we couldn’t miss out on seeing this lake for our own eyes. The whole journey it poured down, but once we got out of the car, like some kind of miracle it stopped. We had the place practically to ourselves because of the weather, and it was hard to believe a place this beautiful actually existed. We spent the afternoon here and rented a boat out onto the lake, then as we walked back to the car the rain started again. Rain or shine this place is unmissable if you are visiting Northern Italy, but I am so grateful the weather gods had my back on this day! 🛶🏔 #lagodibraies #pragserwildsee
