Yesterday I had a minute where I didn’t have anything I HAD to be doing so I thought, “Oh! I’ll write a blog post!” Then I wondered, “What do I blog about? What did I used to post about when I was consistent?” Then I remembered this session from a few weeks ago and the lunch hang out that went along with it. In just a few months we will do this all over again; just in another city and a bunch of other people.
This week my DMs have taught me that I am not alone in my fear of being put on the spot with a stranger to know what internet service we have, how fast it is, and how much it costs. Friends I’m so glad we’ve found each other 🤗 Here’s a photo of my Texan husband in his signature boots marveling at how bad of a dancer his wife is. My belt being out of place in this photo annoys me but I really love the framing and foreground @iveygibbphoto created with the foliage so I’m posting it anyway 👍🏼
Don’t know who discovered that military uniforms and gorgeous white dresses look really good next to each other but the royal wedding prompted me to go back and reminisce that this day was PERFECT!
Every other day or so I realize that my birthday is coming up fast. Then I spend the next few minutes trying to remember how old I’m turning. I’m posting this to remind myself I’m turning 27... I think.
I think a lot about the quotes saying, “Don’t compare your behind-the-scenes to someone else’s highlight reel.” And I agree 100%. Kinda... Except I don’t view these squares as my highlight reel. They are little more than my not so subtle way of showing that I know how to work a camera and you show hire me some time. But my highlights are that I was born into a family that always had extra places set for holidays and then I married into a family that does the same without batting a eye. My highlight is that the Texan works five minutes from home and we rarely go five hours without seeing one another. To sum up, for every photo of that one time that I went to Europe, there are ten more poorly lit iPhone photos that I will be printing and flipping through regularly because they are the true highlights that make my heart swell 😊
Nichole’s dress was taking a few minutes to bustle but the light was too good to waste. So we’ve got several close and personal portraits that were actually quite the party of coordination 😂 Wedding days are beautiful on the surface but are still hard work for so many people and loved ones and I don’t think acknowledging the in between moments takes away from the highlights, in some ways it makes it even more satisfying when it works out perfectly!
