We’re so grateful for this smart, kind, funny, talented, and beautiful human we get to call our daughter. Though we celebrate her every day, it’s nice to officially acknowledge our great fortune today and to shine a light on all the daughters out there! #NationalDaughtersDay
Our world changed forever 20 years ago today. As decades have passed, my memories have softened but not of that day. We owe it to the 2,977 lives lost, and to their loved ones left behind, to remember clearly, to feel that day’s pain deeply, to teach our kids, and to never forget
The silver lining of jet lag is waking significantly before sunrise to witness this Grecian beauty. Always a great reminder that, no matter how many balls I’m juggling, it’s important to stop and consciously bear witness to Mother Nature’s beauty. #Kassiopi #GreekIslands
Our epic East African safari comes to a close. We’re leaving a changed family with a much deeper appreciation for how inextricably linked we all are. And how every species is hyper-critical to our planet’s big picture. So much to learn, so little time! #OutOfAfrica #HomewardBound
First day of school is exactly one week away! Crunch time to get all of those summer reading assignments completed. Our summer has flown by. Feels like they just got out. #SerengetiNationalPark #GrumetiReserve #SingitaFaruFaru #Tanzania
Haven’t missed a sunset since I’ve been in Africa. They’re unbelievably breathtaking and provide daily perspective on what’s important. #SerengetiSunset #SerengetiNationalPark #GrumetiReserve #Singita #Tanzania
My everything. So grateful that we’re on this life adventure together. #FamilyIsEverything #ImALuckyGuy #SerengetiNationalPark #GrumetiReserve #Tanzania
Lean on me. Zebras will often stand this way, partnering to ensure that they’re visually surveying the most territory for potential danger. They instinctually know that they’re better off working together than separately. #LifeLessons #GotYourBack #GrumetiReserve #TanzaniaSafari
After watching a Nat Geo piece on the Great Wildebeest Migration at the age of ten, I’ve dreamt of someday witnessing this incredible occurrence. Today, with my family, I saw about 5,000 of these beautiful animals cross the Mara river. It was humbling. #DreamsDoComeTrue #Grateful
When the front door is too low for your morning’s first visitor. Have a great day everyone! #GiraffeManor #NairobiKenya #BucketListAdventures #FamilyFun
Making loads of very tall friends on this East Africa trip stopover to Giraffe Manor. Built in 1932, this place led conservation efforts for these endangered Rothschild’s giraffes in the 1970s before becoming an epic hotel. Total trip highlight!#BucketListAdventure
Here’s your adorable baby animal post of the day. Our family has had endless debates on which ones are the cutest. It’s an impossible task. Kudos to @lewa_wildlife for providing a safe habitat for these beautiful creatures to live their lives as free from poachers as possible.
The other side of being on safari: Afternoon Tea! Seeing Mother Nature’s magnificent work up-close, as a family, has been a special treat. But slowing down, to discuss our day, has been an equally special change from our normally, hectic lives! #FamilyTime #LewaWilderness #Kenya
First Kenya sunset. So happy to be back in the expansive African wilderness. Home to one of the planet’s largest white and black rhino populations, @lewa_wildlife is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s been critical to the survival of these beautiful creatures. Great cause!
Happy Fourth of July from our family to you and yours! Enjoying the bounties of summer today while recognizing how incredibly lucky we are to live in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave! #IndependenceDay #AmericaTheBeautiful #Happy4thofJuly
NYC has been awash in rainbow colors this past June. It’s been so meaningful to see both the public and private sectors visibly demonstrate support for Pride in so many ultra-creative ways. Thank You for the love Big Apple! Though June may be over, #Pride continues.
Lady Liberty at sunset from our Governor’s Island, NYC camp site. I’m excited to get inspired by international travel again but, sometimes, the most beautiful and inspiring moments are right in your own backyard. #ILoveNewYork #AmericaTheBeautiful #CollectiveRetreats
#PerfectPoolDay on Mackinac Island, MI! As part of the @GrandHotelMI Esther Williams pool update, we’ve added 12 luxe cabanas replete with seating groups, dedicated lounges with canopies (super functional nod to a bygone era) and lake views! #GetYourSwimOn #GrandHotelMichigan
Sharing the new #GrandHotelMichigan Esther Williams Pool House Retail Lobby! This updated space proudly highlights American craftsmanship from Iowa’s Aronson Woodworks to Minnesota-made Marvin Windows and Doors to Stonegate by AFX light fixtures made here in Michigan! #MadeInUSA
The Esther Williams Pool House at @GrandHotelMI is DONE! Referencing her iconic movies (1947’s “This Time for Keeps” was filmed on site) and the hotel’s beloved yellow and white striped awnings, it was an honor to work alongside the team that made this happen! #GrandHotelMichigan
#HappyFathersDay to @Schmoosdaddy and all the other great dads who are working hard to always put their families first! We’re so grateful for this special man whose huge heart consistently overflows with love for us, demonstrating the true meaning of family daily. We Love You!
Picture Perfect Michigan Day: So many ways to catch rays at the brand new #GrandHotelMichigan pool and soon-to-be-completed pool house. I’ve spent over a year of my life working on this project. Hard to believe that we’re now less than one week away till it’s official opening!
Tune into @LiveKellyRyan tomorrow for out-of-the-box outdoor living ideas and the latest in outdoor dining trends! #LiveWithKellyAndRyan #HomeSweetHome #GoodToBeBack #OutdoorLiving #OutdoorDining #VacationAtHome
Exactly 7 years ago, I shot my first scripted series scene for HBO’s #TheComeback with the uber-gifted @LisaKudrow. As a mega-fan of the series and of her, I was nervous (she’s WON an Emmy for comedy and I’m in my first scene EVER) but Lisa was the kindest! #ClassAct #Throwback
Toasting the end of the most unusual school year ever. Thank You to the heroic teachers and administrators who worked to normalize virtual schooling, social distancing, and a whole host of other safety protocols while also ensuring that kids continued to learn. #TeachersAreHeroes
This is Lars, one of our home’s five adopted canine faces that can instantly turn around your worst day. Though we rescued him, he really rescued us. Please consider adopting the next time you’re contemplating a furry family addition! #NationalDogRescueDay #AdoptDontShop
Today’s ride to the airport from the #GrandHotelMichigan. This is what you get when hailing a taxi or ride sharing. Motorized vehicles aren’t allowed on Mackinac Island so getting around in style means using OG horse power. It requires more time management but is 100% worth it!
#MadeInTheUSA: Sneak peek at some of the design elements for the @GrandHotelMI Pool House opening Memorial Day! From fabrics made in the Carolinas to furniture crafted in Iowa and lights fabricated in Michigan, it’s an honor to celebrate America’s artisans! #GrandHotelMichigan
Honored to share that I’m on the team that’s refreshing one of America’s most beloved hotels: #GrandHotelMichigan. Opened in 1887 and treasured by countless many, it’s a true privilege to help preserve, restore, and expand this iconic property. Excited to share more soon!
Perfect ending to the perfect start to this week. #BeachLife #PicturePerfect #RosemaryBeachFL
Ready for #OutdoorLiving season? Plentiful daylight, alfresco dining, and pool time make me grin ear-to-ear as do these #BlueAndWhite fabrics (the ultimate fresh and timeless color combo!) from my InsideOut Performance collection for Trend Fabrics. #SoReady #VernYipForTrend
Magically, the peonies in my Atlanta garden bloom on April 8th, my Mom’s birthday, each year. They were her favorites so we commemorate each birthday by adding another peony plant to the garden. Though she passed 16 years ago, her effusive love still fills our home. Miss you Mom!
#HappyEaster from our family to you and yours! Our family traditions include making our own chocolate bunny, oversized, hare-y dogs. and freshly showered kiddos! However you’re recognizing today, we hope you’re having a great one! #Easter2021
Happy 10th Vera! We’re unbelievably proud of the kind-hearted, smart, talented, funny, and generous young woman she’s become. It feels like I was just changing her diapers and now her cake is overrun with candles. No matter how old she is, though, she’ll always be #OurLittleGirl
To commemorate the upcoming launch of my latest fabric and trim collection, my partners at @Fabricut had custom beach towels printed with one of my new, signature patterns. Grateful to collaborate with such nice people. It’s the perfect way to spend #SpringBreak in style!
So fortunate to call this stupendous man my Valentine. I’ve never met anyone more kind, generous, and capable of love. Happy Valentine’s Day @Schmoosdaddy! My love for you grows every day. #HappyValentinesDay #ImALuckyGuy
#GongXiFaCai and Happy #LunarNewYear! We’re celebrating by wearing red, eating noodles for a long life and dumplings for fiscal health, and doling out red envelopes, with money inside, for good luck in the new year! Wishing all an incredibly positive 2021! #CNY2021 #YearOfTheOx
Have you heard that the @pantone #ColorsOfTheYear are Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, a bright, sunny yellow? Clearly, I’m on board! It’s a combination meant to convey a balance of strength and hopefulness. For me, it puts me in that perfect #VacationAtHome mindset! #Pantone2021
Weekend work view. Any guesses where I am? #WorkingWeekend #TopSecret #OnTheRoadAgain
Happy 11th Birthday to a son we’re so proud of. He’s hard working, smart, talented, and funny. But, more importantly, he’s kind, generous, polite, and respectful of others. Though I’m out of town for work, my chest couldn’t be bursting more with pride. Love You Son! #ProudPapa
#HappyNewYears! Wishing you a tremendous 2021 full of Love, Joy, Health, Laughter, Prosperity, and Positivity! Our traditions have us dining on noodles and dumplings today for a long, prosperous life. However you’re observing today, I hope it’s been a great start to 2021! #LetsGo
#GoodBye2020. It’s been a year for silver linings, valuable lessons, and needed perspective. We’re so grateful to those who made this year doable. From health care workers to delivery folks to teachers and essential workers, we’re grateful to all of you and so many more. #NYE2020
Merry Christmas from our family to you and yours! There’s so much to be grateful for, including the incredible love and support of family, friends, and all of you. Wishing you a day surrounded by immense love, joy, peace, and laughter! #Grateful #PeaceOnEarth #MerryChristmas2020
Gifts are wrapped and stockings are hung. Even the dogs’ treat jars have been fully replenished. I’m so ready. Just two more nights! #ReadyForSanta #ImSoExcited #TwoMoreSleeps #TisTheSeason
The kids gave their 2020 uniform of casual, comfy clothes a much needed break and got spiffed up for a Christmas concert performed solely for their two Dads. Frosty the Snowman never sounded so good. Best Christmas gift ever. #MusicToMyEars #ProudPapas #ChristmasConcert2020
Winter beach sunset to kick off the weekend. It just doesn’t get better. #RosemaryBeachFL #WinterSunset #HappyWeekend
Could not love this man more. Through all of the craziness of 2020, my incredible husband and his business WAG-A-LOT, continued to support the @atlantahumane financially and through hosting adoption days like the one that found these three pups homes! #GivingBack #AdoptDontShop
Best seat in the house, during the holiday season, is under the tree! #OhChristmasTree #CountingDownTheDays #MostWonderfulTimeOfTheYear
Christmas takes a minute to put up at our house but I’m beginning to see the (twinkly white) light at the end of the tunnel. How’s the holiday decorating coming along at your place? #TisTheSeason #ChristmasDecor #ChristmasTree
