That there is my very favorite #KrispyKremeMoment! Or eight dozen of my favorite Krispy Kreme Moments! These tantalized the guests and as soon as dessert time opened up, these were snatched up! It was the biggest hit!! Benjamin and Katerina, you guys nailed it with this one!! And @afloralnote, the florals there on the desert table and on the cake were perfection! . For me, I reach for the basic plain glazed Krispy Kreme every time. Can't go wrong!! What donut would you reach for in a donut tower?!
Oh guys! I was in dire need of a good dress I could wear for my outdoor summer weddings. Living in AZ, summer is no joke. I needed something lightweight that would still hold up, something that would keep all important areas covered when I bend over to take a low angled shot, something cute, and something versatile. Enter @liz.junieblake! I explained what I needed, she helped compare dress lengths (being tall, what comes to some people's knee's hits mid thigh for me), made suggestions, and helped me pick out the perfect @junieblakeinsta dress! . I already have 5 JunieBlake dresses in my closet, but they are all from less fluffy periods in my life...I needed something for here and now and Liz came through for me! The Shalie dress was so comfy for this past backyard wedding, the pockets stored my lens cap nicely, my mom fluff wasn't accentuated, and I never had to worry about flashing anyone while moving around. I LOVE it! So, if you're in need of a cute summer dress (or dress for any time of year!), hit up Liz! She'll help you find just what you need! And, she has this dress on sale right now for 30% off, and has a crazy good 24hr sale on so many more dresses that starts TONIGHT! . So, anyone want a super cute dress?! Head to the link in my profile! You'll love it! Know someone that would love JunieBlake or has been looking for a good versatile dress? Tag them below!
I find that the simple things in life are my favorite. PB&J. Mashed potatoes with melted butter. A simple ring shot. Nosegay bouquets. Vanilla Milkshakes. Snuggles on the couch. Summer evenings running through the sprinkler. Well...Cameron and I ran, the kids cried. What kind of Arizona parents are we that we had to teach our kids how to run through the sprinkler?! Oh well. We had a ball and they wore themselves out and are conked out in bed. . It hasn't been a fancy day, and nothing exciting has happened. But it's been just what the doctor ordered. I think I need to intentionally set social media aside more often! . What is something simple that you love?!
Oh these dry lake beds. They are so mesmerizing and beautiful, yet they can be so fickle, abrupt, and dangerous. My feeds have been full of photos, videos, and news reports of the horrific 25 vehicle crash on I-10 caused by an abrupt dust storm blowing in off these playas. My father and brother-in-law were some of the First Responders for the crash a little after 5pm and didn't get home until 2:30am. My heart hurts for all the families and lives affected by this. While I get to look out at the playas and smile and remember this beautiful evening where we got to go play together, others will now forever look at these same playas and only feel sorrow. . Events like these remind me how important it is to not waste life, and to love on this little family of mine as much as I can. It reminds me to turn off my computer screen and read Bert and Ernie again (and again, and again). It makes me want to snuggle the kids longer, hug Cameron more, and make more memories. . So this morning I'm getting my post in, and then the phone goes on the shelf, and I'm going to try my hardest to let my family know how much I treasure them. . (Photo by @islandmoonphoto)
Moments before the ceremony began, the sun dipped behind the Sedona cliffs and the entire venue was bathed in the most gorgeous and refreshing shade, preparing the perfect setting for Tanika to walk down the aisle to her sweetheart. From the first moments of getting ready, to Mike's tears as Tanika came up the aisle, to the dancing with their loved ones, this entire day was full of sweet moments, gorgeous DIY details, and a super fun wedding party. I loved every minute with Mike and Tanika! . Their wedding is up on the blog and you definitely don't want to miss the emotions as Tanika came up the aisle! Find the link in my bio! .
