Today, I turn 28, and while that number isn’t extraordinary, I’m celebrating anyway for all the fun times to come this year! And as a person whose love language is split between giving gifts and quality time, I figured I’d give y’all a gift for MY birthday so you can celebrate with me 😊 Because my quality time today is going to Garrett! . 👉Swipe to enjoy a little Starbucks gift from me!
There’s the saying “Wanna make God laugh? Tell him your plans,” and boy are Garrett and I resonating with that right now! As a nor’easter blows through Boston, we’re staying home and planning for a different date. . I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed - I was so looking forward to it! - but I’m happy to have time with Garrett either way. And who knows…we may end up doing something cool anyway 😉
We bought our flights for Hawaii yesterday and we take off for Boston tomorrow!! #allthetravel goodness happening right now 🙌 I’ll be a little MIA the next couple of days, or I’ll post insanely to my stories, I haven’t decided yet! But bottom line is, there will be plenty of eating, walking and gushing over history and a cool city happening for this girl’s birthday! All adventuring with the man I love 😍 #stoked . This picture has nothing to do with Boston but I’m so stoked to travel again I don’t care!
Thankful to start this Monday because it’s only a three day work week! Garrett and I leave for Boston on Thursday, and we’re so stoked 🙌 Now to tackle this crazy to-do list of mine before then!!
Rest. Today that looks a lot like my couch with Garrett and Boy Meets World on repeat. Anyone else? . P.S. Isn’t Lauren & her daughter Natalie precious?? This moment stole my heart yesterday 😭
I'm home at the earliest time I've ever been home from a wedding day, but I'm so gosh darn excited (and yes, I say things like gosh darn), because I get to spend the rest of my evening sifting through the thousands of gorgeous memories I captured today. After some tacos and margaritas, of course 😉 Lauren & Jon, you two are flawless through and through. Thank you for asking me to be there today!
It's wedding day for Lauren & Jon! I'm up before dawn, and happy because today is beautiful!! Can we just talk about this Spring weather in February?? And here we were, prepping for another snow storm!
After a full day of editing and hanging at the lake watching Guinness chase kayakers, I'm back at home prepping my gear for wedding number 2 of 2018. . More than ever before, I'm excited to give my couple a hug and celebrate with them! And it's because I realize, as Garrett and my wedding date moves closer, we're both just so ready for it to get here. We're ready to be in Hawaii with our family, we're ready to be married, but more than anything, I'm ready to see Garrett look drop dead gorgeous in that suit! . Lauren & Jon, let's have a blast tomorrow, shall we??
Staring at this peaceful image because Garrett and I are off flying today! It's always a little scary taking off, but once we're in the air, it's the best feeling in the world!
Engagement session: round two for these lovebirds! Despite some gorgeous weather last weekend, we still got rained out at the end of our session on Sunday. Georgia weather, am I right? But I think Georgia's sorry because the weather today is pretty epic ;)
I began a small Bible study today, and it’s the first one I’ve been a part of in years. After today’s first meet up, I realized just how much of my time is going to things that, in the end, don’t matter. But more than that, I’m realizing the amount of power I give other people to dictate my life choices. No one’s rude about it, no one is forcing me to give up my time. And yet, I load my schedule with so many things that aren’t priorities. Rather, they’re taking me away from living a life that’s full, intentional and worth living. So I’m going to end work a little early today, and do something that I enjoy. Today, that’s cooking. But also maybe some watercolor 😉 #deepthoughts
Who knew that my Tuesday would turn into hunting down a permit to photograph at #RedRockCanyon next month?? Sometimes, days go from ordinary to extraordinary in mere seconds 🙌 #goingwest #destinationengagement . . Also, how gorgeous is @lauren_atl?? If you’re looking for some positivity for your daily life, you should follow this gal!
I have no caption for this...I just really like these flowers 😍 all thanks to @amberreverie
May this week bring you goofy faces and messed up hair 😜
Sundays with these two are pretty epic #lwpcouples
Counting down the days ‘til this guy and a coastal view are in front of me #3monthstogo oh, and maybe a few Mai Tais 😏
I know this sounds cheesy but one of the things I’m looking forward to most from marrying Garrett is creating our own wedding album! You better believe that everyone who visits us will be forced to look at it 😂
A little #throwbackthursday to the cutest ring bearer! He just wanted a cookie, you guys 😂
Forever inspired by wild bouquets 😍 . Planning: @embee.events / Floral design: @amandajewelfloraldesign / Dress: @martinalianabridal @larainesboutique
Heads up: this is not your typical Valentines post ❤️ . I used to get so frustrated when girls would say “I can’t wait to start life with you” after getting engaged. I thought...what were you doing before now? Not living? . Looking back, I can see a blush of bitterness on the lens I was looking through. But what really blinded me was that I just didn’t understand the joy those girls were speaking from. . This year of being engaged has been the most wonderful year I’ve lived. My heart is filled with joy from being loved by a man so special and completely my other half. . But I don’t want this Valentine’s post to be like one of the many. I used to get so down on myself, telling my heart to “stay hopeful, it’s just not my time yet.” When really I was devastated that I hadn’t found him already. . If that’s where you are, if you’re hoping and praying to find your partner in life, I want to encourage you that I believe it will happen. It sucks having to wait, but when it comes, you’ll be so glad that you did. . Wait for someone who inspires you, encourages you, cherishes you for your unique qualities and makes you laugh. But until then, keep living. . Discover new things each day that fill you with joy. Dive into a community. Adventure to new places. Be crazy and spontaneous! . But also know that I’m saying a prayer for you today, and that you are most dearly loved. 😘 . 📷 @4cornersphoto from our engagement session
Made a styling board today... it might become a new obsession! 😅
Arabia Mountain never looked so good!! These two cuties are on the blog!!!
When your groom has Thor hair 🙌
Currently have a cat on my chest and Guinness’ butt in my face #saturdaymorningsnuggles (See my stories for proof 😂) And while I love Saturday weddings, I am enjoying these days when I get to sleep in and snuggle with the pets!
