Rest: to cease work or movement in order to relax, refresh oneself, or recover strength. // These past few weeks without shooting weddings has become a small season of much needed rest. Which has not been the easiest for me at all. The type A in me thrives on lists, tasks & overwhelming busy. Submerging in rest & stillness was the last thing I wanted but the greatest thing I needed. Ceasing the day to day work. Relaxing in truth. Refreshing my mind & soul in the word & prayer & fellowship with my favorite people. Recovering strength of my (what was getting weary) heart. It is OK TO REST YOU GUYS. I had it set in my mind that if I'm not doing anything, I'm failing. And I began to grow tired to the standard that this world has set for busy. I missed opportunities because of my busy. I wasn't able to process life because of my busy. I wasn't pouring into people/being poured into because of my busy. Does anybody else feel like every time we choose to take a chill pill, the lord sighs of relief and praises that we let him take the reigns a bit? So if you're in a season of hustle, hustle & thrive. But also know it's ok to step back & enjoy the peace that comes from being still.
Hallelujah it's finally Friday!! Anyone else feel the same?? After almost all week of being sick, I finally feel like a normal human again AND it's a beautiful day (thank you Jesus for some sun). Cheers to the weekend y'all! ☀️🥂I think it's going to be a good one
The moments I get to spend with the bride on a wedding day are some of my favs. It is usually filled with me yelling how beautiful/stunning/crazy pretty they are lol. I really do have the most radiant brides!
If you need a little pep in your Monday, go check out Michael + Laura's wedding at @tuscancourtyard on the blog! Probably one of the sweetest couples there is, no joke! (Link in bio)
All I want for lunch is cake, cake and more cake. Especially when it looks this good!
Your love has ravished my heart. And taken me over. And all I want is to be with You forever.
These dreamy-licious people are on the blog today! Fun fact: we only had about 5 minutes of sun before the clouds rolled in (typical Texas weather) and they still completely rocked it. Go check them out!! I can't wait for their wedding this year at @chandeliergrove ✨
Can it be sunny and 70 degrees again? This cold weather is killing my productivity. Anybody else riding the struggle bus? I might be glued to my couch all day, buried in blankets, watching movies. But hey, my pups sure are loving all the cuddles.
I usually don't do the whole New Years resolution thing but I love the idea of choosing a word to encompass the hopes for the year to come. 2017 was the most challenging year I have ever faced. But the Lord comforted and guided in each trial no matter how tough and for that I am so so thankful. In those crazy valleys, He reminded me that immense joy can be found in him and only him. And what a peace that brings. For 2018 I decided my word would be JOY. I want to challenge myself to daily choose to be joyful in any circumstances. To wake up every morning knowing I can kick each day in the butt because I have an unsurpassable and abundant joy. To seek Christ as my joy and not the world. To live intentionally in joy and share that joy with others. I have a feeling 2018 will be filled with a whole lot of cherished moments with the people I love, amazing adventures & much more laughter. Happy new year! 📸: @nicberrettphoto
