Y’ALL!! The secret is finally out, I’m getting married! . Almost exactly one month ago, 10.17.18, my best friend got down on one knee and I said YES! . He had been traveling to San Diego for about two weeks each month for work and for his October trip, I was able to tag along for a few days! We spent the week seeing all the things, beaches, seals on beaches, scootin’ through the city, the zoo (where they use labs to befriend some of the young animals and help train them - MELT MY HEART! That was probably my favorite part of the zoo), roof top bars, lots of bars, and seeing some of the most beautiful views! . On our last night there together, he had plans that we couldn’t be late to! I thought we were going to Coronado just to sight see and ride around base, but I was wrong! Our night started at the Officers Club, which was such an awesome experience! The ceiling was covered in mugs because as the officers get home, they just go to the bar, grab their mug and fill it up! Next we walked the beach and that’s when I saw Hotel del Coronado, the hotel his Mom told me we HAD to check out! We wandered around and found the perfect ornament for our tree to remember the trip. Then we walked into this beautiful ocean front restaurant where we happened to have reservations! At the hotel, WHAAAA?! . Still, I had NO CLUE what was about to happen! After our amazing dinner we walked the beach, it was getting pretty chilly and silly me, I didn’t bring a jacket! So I was stuck to him just to stay warm! Since I was ready to go, freezing, we decided to walk up this dune to get a better view. Then SURPRISE he got down on one knee with the most beautiful ring I’d ever seen! Of course, I said YES! And ugly cried, but we don’t need to talk about that! . Dinner was amazing. The sunset was amazing. San Diego was amazing. And I couldn’t be more excited to spend the rest of my life with my best friend! Let the wedding planning begin! 💕
I missed the first official snow day in the DMV, so I figured I should share some of Tyson’s favorite snow memories! Look at that sweet faceeee!! 😍
Back home and back to work after attending @creativeatheart #creativeatheartround8 , one of the most powerful conferences I’ve ever experienced! So many laughs, so many tears and so many new amazing friends! Incredibly thankful for this creative community that I can call home! 💕
All the heart eyes when I saw this rose gold ring! . . Taken while second shooting for @verleebishop
Photos like these make braving the cold so worth it! Loved spending time with these two this morning! Next time they’ll be in front of my camera, we’ll be in Charleston, celebrating their wedding day! ✨
