“I don’t have time to rest.” “I need to maximize my time here.” “I’m wasting time that could be spent getting things done.” . Those thoughts ruled my mind for years, but I eventually started to view time differently. My time here in Cambodia is indeed short, but the women I am here to support deserve my absolute best. If I neglect to take care of myself and rest when needed, then I am wasting EVERYONE’S time. . Is it difficult for you to rest, or do you prioritize self-care? I’d love to hear how y’all practice restfulness!
All you need is some red lipstick to feel fabulous 💋 Thankful for gal pal @harrisonjen and for all her help on this trip so far! Disclaimer: I don’t typically look like this in Cambodia, but our friend got married today 🥰
Day 1 in Phnom Penh was a success! We stopped by several markets and are so excited about the possibilities for future Rapha collections. Follow @rhfreedomboutique to keep up with my journey in SE Asia! . 📷 @harrisonjen
The @raphahouse Christmas Gala was a major success! What an incredible night to celebrate 15 years ✨ Rapha has impacted thousands of lives across the globe, including mine. Thank you to all who came, all who served, and all who dressed to impress! Let’s do it again next year!
Who else is participating in @dressember this year? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏾♀️🙋🏻♀️ I’ve committed to wearing a dress every day in December to raise awareness and funds to combat human trafficking. You can donate to my campaign through the link in bio! 👗
Always dreaming and looking toward the future ✨ My job requires me to plan several seasons in advance (side note - every @rhfreedomboutique collection in 2019 is going to be amazing), but that also makes it difficult to live in the moment and be content. I have a fun project up my sleeve that I’m not quite ready to share, but stay tuned! . . . 📷 @jkhader88
Two years ago today, @jkhader88 asked me to be his wife 💍 He proposed at the courthouse where my great grandparents eloped. I always wanted a marriage like theirs - one filled with passion and laughter and generosity. I will forever be thankful for this man and his heart for the world and for me. I love you, Mr. Khader! 😘
My cousins took me around downtown Dayton, and I stumbled upon the most magical vintage shop ✨ I’m very passionate about supporting local, secondhand, and ethical businesses, and I was in VINTAGE HEAVEN. 🙌🏼 I’ll be honest... I was totally feeling myself in this ensemble that I wore out of the shop. What do you wear to feel like your best self? I’m all about those hats! 🎩 . . . 📷 @_hillaryjean_
There’s a pretty neat art scene in Dayton, OH 🎨 My family took me to a friend’s art studio, and we got to check out a bunch of other artists’ work as well. It’s so inspiring to watch that creative process unfold.
For the first time EVER, @jkhader88 and I are on the same schedule! He recently got a new job, which means dinners together, 11pm bedtimes, and coffee in the mornings. Feeling thankful for this new chapter of life for our little family 🖤☕️ . . . 📷 @ryleehopebeck

It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle. Personally, I don’t think my life will slow down until mid February. I’m trying to take a few moments each day to disconnect and just focus on breathing. How do you practice self-care when life gets busy? 🙏🏼 Please give me all the tips!
I walked into Rapha this morning to Christmas music 🎶 and I am TOTALLY FEELING IT. I’ve always been opposed to Christmas before Thanksgiving, but this year I’m embracing the holiday spirit early ☃️ At what point do you get excited for Christmas - after Halloween or Thanksgiving? . . . 📷 @jkhader88
Oh, how I love fall 🍂 The weather, the food, the fashion... I always look forward to pulling out my favorite pieces, including my @nisoloshoes Chelsea boots and my @tonledesign handwoven scarf 😍 What do you love most about fall?
This guy. My desert island person. You make me laugh when I want to cry, you keep me balanced when I start to fall (emotionally and physically), and you turn normal activities into an adventure. I love you @jkhader88 🖤 . . . 📷 @nat.herrod
