Explore Self Portraits, Sunday, and more!

Self Portrait 15/52: Soulful Sundays. Soulful Sundays are the heartbeat of the week. A day full of rest creating replenishment brunching and quiet. Slow and calm. Time to recalibrate and recenter. A time I cherish and yearn for. It seems that the world has taken a nap on soul filled Sundays. No busy no noise no plans. Let's all take a breathe and fill our souls on Sunday. #laurens52portraits #52portraitsclass #hoopersathome #selfportrait

Hands down one of the best trips we've taken and of course I documented it with my favorite instaxs! I love it when a scrapbook page just builds itself... #instax #polaroid #ktx #acolorstory

Scrap booking is a gateway to the past. Sat down with the lovely @iti7 last night and made a scrapbook of our time in Taiwan and we got to relive our fun again. And then again and again every time we look at them. It may seem outdated and lame but memories never are. So print your pictures out and do something with them. You will never regret it. You can see our books in my stories! #laurenlikesstreetart #abmlovesmurals #walltraveled #acolorstory #travel #streetart

As a bit of a Friday introduction I thought I would share the things I am likely to win a gold medal in. 1. Awkward conversations. 2. Sleeping 14 hours straight every night. 3. Making giant messes. 4. Not cleaning giant messes for weeks. 5. Watching the office parks and rec and friends more times than anyone else.  6. Inability to say no to social situations. 7. Spilling things. 8. Talking fast and mumbling at the same time. (Awarded by my husband) 9. Shopping @poppyanddot (wearing in medal…

In an effort to bring more self care and joy to my last year here I began a pottery class. Learning a new skill going somewhere new meeting new people and working with my hands was exactly what I needed and reminded me that you can find anything you need and desire in this city. This experience taught me a lot of things about making expectations and myself. Investing in myself this last year has been one of the greatest joys and challenges and I am so glad I have these pieces to take with me…

She's done! And she's beautiful! Meet The Naturalist. By far my favorite weaving yet. Ps is anyone interested in owning one like her?

If you ever mailed us anything while we were here it's currently on our fridge. We went from a giant kitchen and dining room to this tiny 3 foot counter and yet we have never loved cooking at home and together more. Except that we hate the actual act of cooking after an exhausting day of work. Here are a few things we have tried that have made it so much better for us. 1. A monthly meal plan. We choose 6 meals and eat those all month long. 2. The Skinny Taste cookbook. So good. 3. Taking…

The Scooter Squadron goes to North Korea. #again I love this reunification bridge. It is all ready for the wall to fall and the Koreas to be reunited. South Korean prayers for the north rest here until they are answered. #southkorea #northkorea #reunification #dmz #scootersquad #wereagang

13/52 Self Portraits: #Squad. The greatest treasure I have ever known is the gift of friendship spanned over a decade. These girls diverse and rich make up my being. My person is not whole without them. Their thoughts their struggles their joys and their love are the magic that can only pass between humans in the deepest bonds of relationship. They ground me and propel me and humor me and ruin me. They make me better and worse and perfect. Their souls intertwine with mine and together our…

I long for green and blue for as far as the eye can see. The pollution here has taken such a terrible toll on my health and it has snuck up on me all at once. I'm doing my best to get healthy again but there are mere DAYS left for us here and I am trying so hard to not let it ruin the last precious time we have. But my current status is: extreme fear of the outside. Like John Goodman in 10 Cloverfield Lane. That's me. Crazy shut in wearing a mask and yelling about how you'll die if you go…
