Not too long after Luke and I first got married, he was texting a friend of his. “How’s married life?” his friend asked. “It’s great!” Luke responded. His friend followed up with, “Do you take a lot of walks now?” 😂 Luke and I got a good laugh out of that one. We definitely sent that friend videos of ourselves walking every time we went out for the next few weeks, just to further his idea that once you get married, all you ever do is enjoy walks together. P.s. new blog about how Luke proposed is up now – link in bio! .

When was the last time you did something to challenge yourself? Was it in your profession or just everyday life? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you think of one thing right now that you can do this week that requires you to step outside your comfort zone? The more we challenge ourselves the more we grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to encourage each and every one of you reading this to try something new this week. Challenge yourself to push for more, to learn, to grow and become the best version of yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am stepping outside of my comfort zone this weekend and am nervous, eager and excited to see what will come of it! Watch my insta story Saturday to see what’s happening! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you all up to this weekend? Love hearing from you 🙂 #motivated
