I live for mornings like this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Slow. Quiet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And when my mocha is just the right temperature to drink without burning my tongue. 😜 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you a morning person? Double tap if you are!
We’ve been home from visiting family while on holiday in Canada for not even 72 hours yet, and I miss them terribly already. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I married my husband, I gained a second family. And this trip gave me the time to get to know them better and get closer to them than ever before. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographed here is just a handful of the wildly awesome bunch. My sweet momma in law is on the left, and then my sister in law is in the back and her daughter in the middle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So many good memories made, and feeling so filled up after many great conversations, yummy meals shared together and lots of laughs and warm fuzzy hugs. The kind that make you feel so loved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you go anywhere for the holiday? Tell me what your favorite part of your holiday was in the comments below?
So we’re almost officially 24 hours into 2020 and I’m just a little excited for all that’s in store! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s something so fascinating and exhilarating about a new year, new beginnings, and new days to write our story upon the days ahead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Something beautiful about beginnings is that they always come after something ends, and they give you the opportunity to reflect over past moments and memories. They allow you to grow and to change what you didn’t like from the year before. To take new paths and more chances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Moving into 2020, I’ve been pondering over choosing a word I would like to focus on this year, and I think I’ve finally chosen one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Intentional. That’s my word. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I vow to be intentional with my words, with my time, with my energy. To be intentional with self-love and self care. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be intentional with my work and the way I shoot, which is why I will also be shooting more film this year! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also intend to be more intentional with helping others and giving back to my community. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be intentional about doing my part to take care of Mother Earth and encourage others to do so as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can’t wait to see all the ways I will grow and change in 2020 and I’m so thankful for all of you that love and support me and are in my life! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s to lifting each other up, being there for one another and lots of positive growth and change in 2020! 🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo Credit: @priscilagilleyphotography
2019, it’s been fun! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looking back at our top nine is only but a fraction of all the amazing moments we captured. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are thankful for all of the people who let us into their lives to capture some of their most special and intimate moments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Together, my husband and I have been reflecting over the past year and the growth we’ve had not only in our businesses, but in our marriage as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There have been a lot of tough moments, and a lot of happy moments, but we kept choosing each other, even when it got tough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reflecting on our marriage has also reaffirmed why it is we do what we do and how blessed we are to be able to do it together. Marriage is important. It is sacred. It is to be cherished and fought for, even when the going gets rough. One of God’s greatest blessings is to find your person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope you all have a Happy New Year filled with love, laughter and abundance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happynewyear #2020 #newyear #newbeginnings #nye2020 #bestnine2019
