The new Sunday mornings #thefrankslife

Had the chance to write a bit during a momma and Oryn nap yesterday, reflecting on the experience of being witness to something so powerful one week ago. Like most men my view was much different, and my feelings of admiration for @krista.franks are on πŸ” β›°πŸ” Check it out in my bio link. #thefrankslife

This past week was one of the most humbling and empowering experiences of my life. @phil_franks and I welcomed this new little soul into the world on Nov. 29 at 12:20 am.  Oryn Allen Franks weighed in at a mighty 8 lb 1 oz and measured just over 20 inches long. Everything about the birth went almost exactly as planned thankfully, and we're all healthy and adjusting to a new normal. We have a lot of reflection, processing and learning to do as a family after such an incredible life alerting experience, and we can't wait to share a lot of that here soon on our blog. Until then, we're going to enjoy all the new vibes and lifestyle that a new baby brings into the home. We are beyond grateful to all of our family and friends for the outpouring of love and support. We bow to the care team that helped us get to this point and continues to see us through the postpartum phase. And to my hubs @phil_franks - I don't have the words....there's not enough gratitude in the world to show you how much I love and honor you as a man, the protector and provider of our family and as my partner. Your strength (physical, mental, emotional) continues to amaze and surprise me. Cheers to this new journey! ❀️😘 #orynallen #thefrankslife

It’s due date week! πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ‘ΆπŸΌ And we’re nothing but grateful for the process that has been pregnancy. We’ve each learned so much about ourselves and each other from 9 months to now. Things seem to be coming into focus as the next chapter of our lives starts. Here’s to kissing bellies and babies 😚 #thefrankslife #herewego #parenthood

Dream big...everyone. This new piece of artwork was designed by my hubs @phil_franks and now hangs on the wall right as you enter baby Franks' bedroom. I adore it. And every time I see it, I feel like it's a reminder to me just as much as it is to our little babe. Dream big, little one. I still feel like a little one sometimes. Who am I to be having a baby and being an adult and starting a business?!?! But we're doing it. And all of it was planned, intentional and in alignment with our life's vision. Every year @phil_franks and I spend time doing our family strategic planning. We just finished up our 2018 planning on Saturday, and let me tell you - we are dreaming big! Because we know that with a shared vision and hard work, we can make anything happen...including a baby and a business in the same year 😊 Life is changing and I can't wait to see what 2018 has in store. ✨ Btw...if you're interested in how we do the planning, Phil blogged about it on #thefrankslife! Link is in my bio. πŸ’• #intentinalliving #goals #2018 #vision #sharelife #grateful

Today marks the start of month 9. πŸ’• My heart is full. For this and for many other reasons. Today, I'm reminiscing on all that @phil_franks and I have done to get today and to prepare for what lies ahead. The good vibes are overflowing as I reflect on our journey and imagine what's in store for us. I'm soaking up the present moment. Because life is changing, friends, in incredible ways, and I couldn't be more grateful. As I said in my #thefrankslife blog post today: "Change is not a destination. It is a journey - always happening whether we are aware of it or not. But intentional change is a beautiful process, accomplished through little, moment-to moment actions that align with a bigger vision." And our vision is coming to life. ✨ Link in bio. #thefrankslife #9monthspregnant #grattitude #intentionalliving

One of my main reasons for getting Phil and I away this past weekend was to reflect on the past and dream for the future...together, before our lives change drastically in the upcoming months. We did an activity where we looked back on the last 10 years and then looked ahead at the next 10. It was super powerful to do together, as a couple, to bless and release the past and to align on the future. Lots of love, emotions and good energy and overall, a deeper connection that the two of us can carry with us into this next phase of our journey. Phil wrote about it today at thefrankslife.com. Sharing the questions we asked and his thoughts on the experience. Definitely check it out if you want a good, healthy pause in life. Can be a solo or partner activity 😊 #thefrankslife #reflection #mindfulness #intentionalliving p.s. This beautiful, cozy cabin brought to you by @markbhenson...cannot thank you enough, Mark, for sharing your space with us. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’•

I finally have a digital home where I'm posting my writing πŸ™ŒπŸΌ. @phil_franks are capturing and sharing our lives and thoughts through our words and photos over at thefrankslife.com. Here's a little snippet of my most recent addition on Giving and Receiving | "...what if we opened up to the idea of giving and receiving more intentionally? What if we asked for what we needed, shared what we are willing and able to give and did all of this without letting our egos keep us from helping and sharing? Wouldn't it be a pretty cool experience if we could do that more often?

I feel like in this life, one of our biggest purposes and greatest challenges is to learn to work together. It's to share, to collaborate, to lean on each other in times of need and to lift others up when we're able to do so. We're going through this journey together, and we need to embrace that mentality. It's a pretty cool experience when the exchange happens so seamlessly." #thefrankslife #givingandreceiving #thoughts

In a world that is currently being hammered with challenges, pain, heartbreak and devastation, I often find myself asking...what can I do to help lift people up and do something good in the wake of everything that's going on around us? And today, I realized that I'm already doing something. I'm putting my time and energy toward something I believe in...something that at its core is meant to create community and to spread positive energy. The work @phil_franks and I are doing on the @assembly_life and #thefrankslife could not be happening at a better time. A time when I need to be working on something that is creating good in this world. We have an opportunity to build something that generates intentional, positive energy and influences the connection of a community. And right now, that's what this world needs. I look at what we're doing with @alvarezguide and @flat51rental at our upcoming pop-up event for @assembly_life and realize that it is not just an event - it is an opportunity to be the change we want to see in the world. It's an opportunity to bring presence and peace to a time when things feel a little overwhelming. It's a moment in time when we bring an incredible group of people together to spread healing and compassion. The event is our moment to create a positive, supportive, intentional ripple effect in this world, and I'm grateful for that opportunity. For the people who are already joining us on October 14, thank you πŸ™πŸ» and I can't wait to create a space of good vibes with you all. And for anyone else who can join, we'd love to have you. We are all about bringing a powerful community of people together, and in these times, that's more important than ever. ❀️ #grateful #spreadlove #bemindful #createpeace #bethechange #theassemblylife #thefrankslife

This weekend, we got away for a special hijacking (aka surprise adventure)...our last big one before babe Franks. We looked back on the past, shared dreams for the future, climbed rocks and squeezed through others, got massages, meditated, did yoga, ate healthy home cooked food and just generally spent time being us. My heart is full. ❀️ I am so grateful to have this adventurous, genuine, deeply passionate partner by my side every day. #thefrankslife #hijackings #travel #hockinghills #grateful #healthypregnancy

Just a reminder today that soooo many things are possible if we just try. If we set an intention, start working and keep moving, it's likely we will get to where we're going. The destination may not always look like we had envisioned, but it's likely better. The beauty is in the journey.  Feeling alive today watching goals become a reality.❀️πŸ’₯ #life #goforit #lifestyle #thefrankslife #latergram

28/100 Permission to live fully | "And so we cannot get lost in the big things. We cannot distract ourselves with the business we're building, the money we're making, the promotion, the weight goal, the things we yearn for but don't yet have. Yes, we need to know what we want in order to move in that direction. But those things should not define our success or our happiness. Instead, we must focus on the things we do daily that make us the humans that we are meant to be. The practices that make up every single day. The things that fill us with energy and love. The things that challenge us in the little ways. Because if we can do those little things day in and day out, we can surely accomplish our big goals. Because life, and therefore progress, does not happen in those big moments. Those are fleeting. Life and progress happen in the little moments, every day, that slowly turn us into the humans we wish to be. And for that reason, we must give ourselves permission to do the things that are of value to us. We must acknowledge the things that fill up our individual buckets. What inspires and ignites me may not be what inspires and ignites you. But if I know what my daily practices are in this season of life and I don't practice them, then shame on me. Then my happiness is no fault of anyone but me. It is my responsibility first to know what's important to me and second to prioritize that action into my day. Doing so is risky. It’s a choice to play the long game. Doing so does not always have an immediate return. But overtime, after years of practice, we see the outcomes. We see our lives become fuller, happier, more meaningful. Not because of one, big fleeting moment. But because of the conscious, purposeful choices we made every single day along the way." #kristafrankswrites #thefrankslife #morningwriting

Sweating is my favorite beauty "secret" πŸ˜‰ I'd rather be makeup free and pushing through a workout than all dolled up every day. #truth The problem is always fitting it in and getting over the initial hump of the first 15 minutes. So weekend workouts are the best. I get to have a competitive, inspiring teammate by my side and plenty of time invest in the body. And we always do something a bit more adventurous bc we have more time. This weekend was biking all over Columbus and then the @grange_audubon obstacle course. Wish all days were more like the weekend ❀️ #latergram #health #thefrankslife #workoutbuds
