Christmas Mini Session Templates


Snowflakes and sleigh bells seem to be in the air at LRI… or at least a little Christmas music! Last week we released our all new Holliday Card Template bundle – which we decided to make free!

And today we have just added our newest Holiday Mini Session Campaign Kit. I think this has to be my favorite Mini Session Campaign Kit that we’ve ever designed! I am in love with the simplicity, the gray, the clean lines – all of it! And I’m super excited to be unveiling it for you at a very special intro price of only $12 (will go to $20 soon).

Tis the season for amazing minis so hurry into the shop and pick up our new Holiday Mini Campaign Kit while it’s still at the intro price!

Favorite Decor: We are currently traveling through Japan and Halloween isn’t quite the same as in the states. I have to admit, I’m missing pumpkins! While they like to dress up, they don’t trick or treat or carve pumpkins. So spying this adorable entry has definitely got me swooning!

Favorite Fashion:  All you need is a cozy cardigan, skinny jeans and a great bootie and you can’t help but feel fab! To bad I can’t fit one this long and wonderful in my suitcase right now!

Instagram at a Glance – September


With fall comes new. Normally it’s the new school year with new teachers for the kiddos, switching out the summer clothes for sweaters… And iced drinks for cute mugs of hot chocolate.

For us, there were all kinds of changes too, but we’ve never been very conventional.

The kids officially started homeschool. Which is really more world-school as this year is all about learning as we explore. We surprised everyone (especially ourselves) and after leaving the UK, headed home to Seattle for the first few weeks of September. It was so good to see family and friends, we even made a little trip to Portland to spend a couple days with bosom friends (who made sure to make me my favorite cookie dough). After our surprise Seattle stop, we’ve headed back on the road (or plane in this case!). With our longest flight yet, 14 hours) – we headed for Hong Kong.

For the LRI team, September was spent working on a new brand, new shop, and site revamps along with a special surprise we are excited to share with all of our readers and newsletter subscribers (so make sure you’re signed up for our newsletters!).

Septemer was still a month of new starts in our home and at LRI… And as fun as new starts are, I’m even more excited to turn a few of them into completed projects!

As always, come be part of the adventures! Follow @leahremillet on Instagram and if you want to follow our families world travels this year, follow @abraodernest.

Reading List for Creative-Entrepreneurs

It’s our one year anniversary for book club! Actually we are a month past, but since June was dedicated to fun fictional books… We reached our twelfth business book last month!

So, I thought it would be fun this month to give you a round up of all 12 business books I recommended over the last year! Take a peek… Pick one you’re excited about and jump in! These are all books that have given me incredible insights, taught me how to be a better girl boss, and helped me to be a better leader, business owner, and balanced mama.

girl-boss-book-club-reading-listTo help you find the right book for the areas you want to grow in…. I’ve broken them down by category. And these are all great books on Audible and in Paperback. I personally prefer most of my business books on Audible so I can listen while I’m on the go!
