Finding Beauty Friday, The one where I host!

Y'all, the sweet Aimee from This Darling Day has graciously invited me to host the Finding Beauty Friday! I'm so thrilled to do this! And it's all on my own, this could be good or bad, so let's see how this bad mama jama turns out today!

Today, I want to share with you my Finding Beauty photo from our fishing trip last week. This one has made an appearance on my blog already, but it's sooo good! I almost want to get it blown up on a canvas and hang it over my mantle!

Now, on to choosing my favs from last week's Finding Beauty link-up. It's almost impossible and took hours for me to decide because they were all so great!

I loved the simplicity of Meg's photo. A hot air balloon ride is on my bucket list!

And the yellows and oranges in this photo from A Short Blonde are to die for!

This photo, it just takes my breath away! I would love to put my future home right smack dab in the middle of this amazingness! Thanks to Lauren from Little Alpenglow for sharing this treasure!

On behalf of Aimee, thank you again to everyone who participated! We are both looking forward to seeing what you share this week. Please only link to photos you have personally taken or have permission to use. Posts do not have to be from today to be linked and you can link as many recent posts as you like (within reason). We won’t check up and see if you’ve visited other blogs, but please play nice and do so!

Havvvvveee you met Elizabeth?

Please meet Elizabeth! She blogs over at Oak & Oats! Her blog is so inspiring, in many ways. I read it daily & just love her heart!  Check her out & don't forget to leave some love for her! ~Jessy


Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I blog over at Oak + Oats! I’m a twenty something who pretends to be a grown up. I love people, Jesus, adventures, dress up, creating,exploring, and being married to my best friend! Oak + Oats is a lifestyle blog about being rooted and nourished in Truth! Join me in my journey of living a simple, natural, and healthy life. If that wasn't enough, you can learn a bit more about me here!


I love instagram. It is hands down my favorite social media. I love that you can create a folder of snapshots and memories. Filled with places you go, people you love, and things you do. Enough space for a caption but not enough space for too many crazy rants or buzzfeed articles. It is a pile of pictures that you can carry in your pocket – like those plastic inserts you can put into your wallet - but better!

I also love the community that can happen in instagram when we share pieces of our everyday and use our phones to create a mini blog - they do say a picture is worth 1000 words! A couple weekends ago, Megs & I introduced our instagram challenge and our hashtag #holdersnotfolders. The heart behind #holdersnotfolders is community.


Holders Not Folders is a community that Megs of Rivers and Roads & I started of instagramers who grow, stretch, learn, live, share, experience, comfort, and love. The idea behind the name is that we HOLD onto each other and do not FOLD into ourselves. It is choosing community over isolation.

We want you to be a part of the community. Get involved in the current instagram challenges we have going on, find new instagramers and bloggers to follower, stretch & grow your phone photography, and reach out.


We would love for you to join the #holdersnotfolders community! You can start by following us on instagram (Megs of Rivers & Roads || Elizabeth of Oak + Oats ) and checking our blogs to see the current challenge! After that, it is all up to you! Get creative with your photography and look for beauty in the everyday! Use the hastag #holdersnotfolders and check out the rest of the community! Comment on pictures, say hello, and find new people to follow!
