Had so much fun shooting the always beautiful @chelseamorgensen and her incredibly sweet boyfriend. Charlie lives out in Texas, so I was really excited to get them both in front of the camera during his latest trip out here. I don't know how you guys do it, but you make long distance relationships look real cute!! So happy for you two! 💕
I was chatting with a friend today and mentioned that I may have been enjoying summer a little too much this year. That I may have spent a little too much time resting, regrouping, actively putting in some much needed time and attention back into my friends and family (and myself) and of course traveling and she sweetly responded with: There is seriously no such thing as enjoying summer too much! That's what it's for. . Did anyone else need to hear that? I have been feeling guilty this summer as I took a pretty significant leave from Social Media. I had the busiest spring/early summer I have ever endured, mentally and physically, and needed to slow things down to be able to rest and regroup. I have yet to master the perfect work/life balance, but I am continuing to chip away at it and this year it took me a little bit to fully reboot. But sometimes that's just what you need and that's okay. Thank you to my sweet friend, Hannah, for reminding me of that. And to any of you that are struggling with the same balance, I encourage you to give yourself some grace and take some time for yourself. It really is so important. And for those of you who have mastered this delicate balance, please do share your wisdom, I am all ears!! . As for now, I am finally feeling on top of the world again and so excited to jump back into the fall wedding season. There is going to be a lot of new content coming your way and I can't wait to reconnect with all of you! I'm so happy to be back.
I had such a blast at this beauty's bridal shower this weekend. It was filled with incredible food, great music, hilarious group games and the sweetest of people. What better way to celebrate your engagement!? So happy for you, Siran! 💕 (Can't wait to share more photos soon!)
Us: Hi, we would like to order ice cream. ALL of the ice cream. Room service: Absolutely, how does 2 or 3 scoops sound? Us: Umm, how about like a bucket? We're gonna need a lot. Room service: ... Am I to understand that the day was too hot for you? Us: Yes, we are dying! Room service: Haha, we can definitely make that happen for you. No problem. And I am happy to report that they did not disappoint, haha! After spending the day exploring Marrakesh, Morocco in what felt like 200° weather, we are now stuffing our faces with more ice cream than any one person ever should. We only made it out and about until 4pm before we had to retreat back to our hotel to cool down. But what an incredibly different world it is out here. It's been fascinating learning about the history of the city and seeing such a different way of life; makes you truly appreciative of what you have back home and how much you take for granted on a day to day basis. Tomorrow we're off to explore a different part of the country; the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert! #stefaniciottitravels
