I'm so glad you are here. I'm Elizabeth and this is the blog. This is the space I tend to. The place I share my heart and our stories. I pack these pages full of tips, stories, adventures, travels, outfits, and recipes. It's a little bit of everything and a whole lot of me. My hope is that these words & photos would encourage & inspire you. That being here will brighten things at least a little bit. Please stick around & explore. There is something here for everyone!

An Instagram Challenge || Water

Welcome to the weekend brave ones and our instagram challenge! Holders Not Folders is a community that Megs & 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.

Last week the challenge was “WATER” and there was too much summer time goodness filling up the feed. As each week goes on, it is so exciting to watch this community grow and share! I am constantly inspired by your creative eyes and capturing the joy & life of the everyday! As always, this week was terribly hard to choose but without further adieu, here are the top nine from the week! Make sure to stop by all their feeds and say hello! 

For the next six weeks, Megs & I will be sharing our top favorite #holdersnotfolders instagrams every Saturday. We also will have a new prompt each week to help you look for the community and friendship in your world! This hashtag is about the little things and the big things! We don’t want to miss out on life because we were afraid to reach out!

Catch up on past’s week’s challenges & join us in this week’s!!!
THREE || LINES
SUMMER || LOCAL
JOY || MAGICAL

This week’s prompt is “COLOR” We encourage you to creatively think and try to capture those moments in your life! Think inside, outside, and all around the box. We pray you are challenged, encouraged, inspired, and find new friends to follow on Instagram! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #holdersnotfolders so that we can see your moments and pick our top nine (we also will be picking our top 9 separately so make sure to check both our blogs out each week!)

WE HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
now go find those lines, instagram, and make new friends!
  • I loved the theme last week! Thanks for including my little Cinque Terre coast shot! I'm excited for Color too! Italy is soooo colorful, it will be fun to go searching for some more 🙂

  • I did better about remembering the theme this week but couldn't come up with a creative and appropriate photo. Maybe this week! haha. 😉

  • I think this is such a fun idea, but I'm so nervous to join in! My pictures never come out super cool looking! Haha but, I'll try to step outside the box and join the party this week!

  • What fun! I'll try to remember this week!
