Grateful. This mommy gig stops me in my tracks to take in all the little things....and stress about the big things. But above all I pray we can raise our little man to love Jesus, serve others and have a heart of thanksgiving for all that we have. I’m thankful we have this day to reflect. My prayer is we weave thanksgiving into the very fabric of who we are. To give praise without ceasing. Thank you for being here, friends. I’m grateful for you. Happy Thanksgiving 💙

We didn’t know what to expect when we went to Mexico in September. Neither of us had been for pleasure. I went for a few mission trips in high school, but never saw the tourist side. This little slice of heaven on earth has captured our hearts and we are constantly talking about when we can go back. Friends trip!! Tulum is an absolute dream. The clock stops and you just relax. My favorite part was seeing this handsome hard working man of mine getting some much needed down time to just be. To be still. To bask in the sunshine. To swim in the waves. Tulum, you’re okay I guess 😎👌🏻 What is on your travel bucket list?
So.many.galleries. Fall is a little crazy in the photo world. Looking forward to unplugging for Thanksgiving weekend and spending some much needed time with family and friends. And this cute guy?! He’s at such a fun age right now. I honestly can’t get enough of him!
About one more month full of family sessions then Christmas around the corner! Loving that it’s finally feeling like fall. I’m almost giddy for the rain tomorrow. The smell of crockpot soup filling the house and making our Thanksgiving grocery list. ‘Tis the season, friends! How do you celebrate Thanksgiving?
Simplicity. I crave it. It’s like a yearning in my soul. I don’t want to be like this world. I don’t want to chase after worthless things. Stuff. Fluff. Filler. I want simple. I want pure love and sweet sunshine. I want dirt under my nails from camping too many nights or digging in the garden with my son. I want snow cones on hot summer days. I want curled up in our sweats in a dog pile on the couch watching movies listening to the rain. I want the sweet sweet love of our Maker. And I don’t want to miss the moments. Because the simple in-between is the good stuff.
Totally wishing l took little bits of all the Arizona cacti goodness home to transplant in my patio garden. Not that that’s illegal or weird in any way! Ha! Have you started your winter veggie garden? I’m tempted to try it again, but l feel like I’m just feeding all the little cotton tails. 🐰🌵🌱 #countryproblems
Today is World Adoption Day. l truly believe l was given this platform to not only share pretty pictures, but to advocate for the fatherless. Adoption is just ONE way we can care for orphans. I’m honored to have met so many families who said yes. Who said yes to the hard, the scary, the unknown, the broken, the old, the new. They say yes because they rather face a ounce of pain for a lifetime of sweet redemption. The families I’ve met through @citywithoutorphans have changed my life and I’m honored share in their adoption day. To stand in a courtroom and document the very moment they become a forever family. A moment more precious than gold. To learn more about orphan care please follow these organizations doing mighty work! #worldadoptionday @citywithoutorphans @thearchibaldproject @selamtaproject @adopttogether @togetherwerise @fostervillageaustin @worldadoptionday
I’ve been trying to put into words my experience the last few days. It was a total whirlwind of goodness. There is nothing quite like being surrounded by a community of creatives who welcome every.single.person. with open arms. Digging deep into the “why” of my business and getting to know these friends of mine better. Going to conferences year after year you find your people. And this crew...man they inspire me. They are real. They love their clients and serve well. They love people and genuinely care. So thankful for the sweet conversations and the time we had together! Cheers to you #showitunited2017 thank you for allllll the hard work to put on such a wonderful event! So one word? Grateful.
