When you choose to make life your own fairytale, you notice the little things that make every day so special. Caitlin and Danielle live for adventure, but they have learned to find comfort in every moment. It’s in these instances that morning coffee turns into a ritual, nights turn into morning and friends turn into family.
We can have just as much fun getting ready with one another than we do going out. The most important thing is that we’re together. Through all the good times and the hard times, we can count on each other to be there. That’s it. That’s the magic. Just be there.
We could laugh on a spontaneous walk around Chicago, feel comfort from a delicious bowl of pho, get a surge of adrenaline from our morning workout. When we think about our perfect day it doesn’t all have to be a grandiose experience. Our perfect day consists of the comforting activities that make us sparkle from the inside out.
One of our favorite activities over the past three years has been our photoshoots! Our minds are constantly flowing with creativity and this is our outlet to make it all come to life. We find comfort behind the camera. We live for the collaboration.
Chicago is the kind of city where you can find magic around any corner. The vibrancy is contagious, the people are the BEST, and the universe introduces you to whomever is supposed to cross your path at a particular moment in time. This photoshoot is a direct reflection of that.
We partnered with Generation Bliss Boutique for this shoot and were styled by the one and only Ela Czupta. All photos were taken by Ritual Yoga Creative Director + photographer Garrett Roth. From the moment we met these two, we started dreaming of ways to work together.

Embrace the comfort might be one of my all time favorite things. Every day I do something for the sake of comfort: a warm blanket, cup of coffee and a book; letters to and from friends; and lunch or dinner out with friends and family top that list. There are so many good things in life!
This is such a wonderful post. I love your three tips to helping us find our inner magic. Paying attention to how circumstances, things, experiences etc make us feel is so important. We need to be more aware of our bodies and emotions, and what triggers what. This is particularly true in regards to what makes us happy, and also what triggers sadness.
Being present and taking the time to notice the small things is also a major one for me.
