Introducing Emily & The Edibles

  • A Home Made for Hosting

Oh man, oh MAN! What a DAY today is!! I can’t tell you how excited I am about this! When I blogged about A Home Made for Hosting several months ago, my heart was to provide inspiration for those who love serving people with their home! So far, we have had such a positive and overwhelming response and we are so thankful!! From the very beginning, the idea of this series wasn’t just something that I wanted to do on my own, I had a secondary vision for it!!

Instagram Editing

  • Ask Anything

I LOVE INSTAGRAM! I honestly don’t think that it’s going to be the social media channel of choice for forever… but for right now, it’s my favorite! It caters to my business more than any other social media platform simply because I know that I can reach people and I know that I can engage with my “tribe” or “community” directly, without worrying about algorithms or paying for sponsored posts to be seen!! I’m sure those days are coming… and when they do, something new will be ready to replace Instagram. I have a few thoughts on that area of the inter webs that I’ll have to share sometime!

Legacy Redefined

  • It Started 30+ Years Ago

When I think of the word “Legacy”, for some reason I think of three things. 1. Grandkids, 2. Funerals and 3. Money. I’m not sure why those three things come to mind, but whenever the word “Legacy” is brought up, those three words linger in my brain. However, after this weekend, my mental response to the word “legacy” is shifting a bit. This weekend… actually the last TWO WEEKS… have been a whirlwind of travel, shoots, hosting, workshops and way too many hours spent on the road.
