I’m back home now and it feels like everything has changed. I’m taking it slow but wanted to share a spot that has actually changed just recently. This bbq area was the first thing to go when we were building the house and budget was getting squeezed. We waited a couple years and decided now was the time to build it...and then I left town for a month just as it started. Anyways, it’s a little late in the season but I guess luckily we don’t really have seasons here in LA. We built it under the kitchen window so that we can pass food and drinks easily back and forth.
By the way I was really moved by all those of you who gave kind words of support and shared their stories, thank you so much❤️.

This weekend started to feel like fall • layers of clothes and blankets at night • but I'm still very much appreciating the sunshine ☀️

After our diy headboard of 5 years started being unstable, finally got a new one after pondering it for too long. And new art from lovely @jyoungdesignhouse. I’m feeling the need to change these lamps too now. Hmmm.

I love changing out my throw pillows with the seasons, they can easily make your space feel brand new + cozy! @designlovesdetail nailed it with these @laurelandblush pillows.
This pup, I’ve been thinking about how grateful I am for her. 9 years of unconditional love, a sleeping buddy and a running partner. Maggie is spunky, mischievous, a top notch snuggler and a model in basically every photo of my house.
Yesterday, I drove to Simi Valley to take photos of and hangout with my precious niece 💖 This little bundle of joy was very cranky in the beginning of the session but finally passed out in this position...if I barely touched her she would wake up (light little sleeper like my sister) but I did get a smile out of her 😍 This session was such a special one to me and makes me love my job even more! I not only get to capture memories for my clients but I get to do it for my family as well and what a privilege it is! Annabella Joy, you are the sweetest and I can’t wait to see that little personality the Lord has given you! I love you oh so much ❤️ #amandajoyphotography

We have the kind of neighbors who trade apples for cookies. And so we get along well.
This weekend was so special to me! A fun filled workshop last night with amazing ladies and a pop up shop today in my old stomping grounds, which meant seeing friends and family. Thanks for everyone who has supported me!! I have some more Fall goodies for everyone I’ll be posting throughout the week!

Happy First Weekend of Fall!!! My shop is officially back open 🌻 Thank you Lovelies for being patient with my absence. This last month has been SUPER busy, but largely fulfilling! I hope to share with you my big project soon 💕 #fall#sunflower#paperflowers
My mom said she felt “weird” taking pictures in the bathroom because it’s “creepy”. #boutdatglamourlyfe

These white jeans are 50% off! 💕 (I spent today hanging out with my siblings and little nephew.. Family time is just the best and fills my heart) // Shop on www.GypsyTan.com/Instagram or LIKEtoKNOW.it! 💕 #fallfashion#bbdakota#babesinBBD
Once in a while we get invited into special moments for super special people in our lives. They always come asking “do you want to just be a guest or would you consider being our photographer?” and my answer is ALWAYS...let me behind the lens!! There is nothing better than getting to photograph a wedding (or engagement, or any other session!) for people you love. Emily and I lived together for our last two years in college and she is one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I’ve ever met. Seeing her last night with her love, who is the perfect compliment to her, and getting to hear about their lives and wedding plans was wonderful. We can’t wait to celebrate their day in January! #mountaingapphotography#mountaingapweddings

My birthday was 11 days ago, and I’m finally done celebrating!! EVERYONE who KNOWS me know that I’m a very appreciative person, but I’m never too excited about my birthday, but this year was different. This year I had a reason to be excited!! The ones closest to me really came through. Thank you for loving me. This birthday was one to remember💗

Is there a term for un-making the bed??? Taking down the bed? Undoing the bed? Taking the pillows off the bed? Well, it’s extra easy tonight. 😴 Rainy days are long and cozy. Aaron told me the other day how much he loves our room and it made me so so happy. It was the one space we spontaneously decided to include in our renovation and turned out to be my favorite? Ah, they’re all my favorite. Goodnight friends. ✨
My busy design firm (located in Folsom) is still looking to fill our accountant position. This job requires you be proficient in quickbooks online (not desk top) and have serious understanding of business accounting. I cannot stress enough, that you need experience & expertise in this field. We do a very high volume of business and need someone who can manage this area of our business. We have a higher level CPA we work with as well and we are not looking to 'be someone's client'. We need a PT employee that can dedicate 20 hours per week to this position in the office. What we need from this position does not allow 'work from home' but....we can be flexible on schedule. We are mom's ourselves and this environment is extremely family friendly. I've built a company that allows us to be hard working moms who don't have to sacrifice our families over work. 👆 link in bio #teamworkmakesthedreamwork
I highly recommend owning a wardrobe full of jumpsuits💥

Being a mom kicked my butt today. I love it. Obviously. ❤️ I can go from utter frustration to "Oh my goodness, I'm so obsessed with you!" in three seconds flat; but still, some days are harder than others. 🙈 Tonight, it's @santamargheritaus wine and crummy reality tv (both of which I obviously looove.) Cheers, mamas. 🥂 #ad#santamargheritawines#uncorkextraordinary
