If there is a Scrooge for Halloween/Fall that’s me 🙋🏼♀️ I love the cooler weather and cozy food but have minimal desire to decorate or do the “fall” things. It’s all just a place holder for the best time of year, Christmas. So I’ll just sit here with my one fake pumpkin that I took from my mom and scowl because all this orange and brown isn’t green and red.
Every time I open the curtains he’s closed or adjust the shower head to not shoot straight over my head I’m reminded of one of the least shared truths about marriage. It’s spending the rest of your lives undoing things the other does then vise versa until one of you dies 😂 It’s okay though! Better than okay. From the beginning I’ve tried to always make sure when I’m making one of these adjustments to take the .3 seconds to be thankful for him. To be grateful that he’s there and physically able to do these things even when they aren’t how I’d do them. Those same legs and hands that leave fans on high power wherever they are, hike mountains with me and stroll Lowe’s with me. We don’t get to choose the habits and preferences that come with our spouse but we do get to choose to be grateful for them. So I’m super curious we can’t be the only couple who constantly undoing what the other does?! What do y’all do? And then undo?
Sooo are we out of the 90 temps now? 😬 This is just an in between moment from a recent shoot, of a grandma loving on her granddaughter and it’s my absolute favorite ❤️
This week I’ve been hanging out with @happygostuckey @birdsong.design ‘s house and it’s been incredible. We’ve gotten a good rhythm down of shoot, chat, snack, repeat which is pretty much my dream day 💃 We have different talents but a lot of the same passions for community built around your dinner table so I’m excited to see what she does with these photos!
October 1?!? I mean I’m excited but also kinda already want to 😴 October and November only have a few session days left in each so let me know if you want one!
Singing “Circle of Life,” but simultaneously realizing I don’t trust my knees in this moment 😬 Wednesday morning, my Texan causally mentioned he might like to go see the Aggies play in Tuscaloosa. 45 minutes later I had found some Priceline Express deals and swiped around on Google maps for some green areas not far from i20 and we had a weekend road trip planned 👯♀️ This was the first time I’ve done more than just drive through the state and gosh, it was beautiful. This particular hike, Pulpit Rock Trail, was a bit of a quad burner at times but my favorite part of Cheaha State Park was that the Bald Rock Boardwalk was completely handicap accessible and led to an AMAZING view! Good job, Alabama 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
