Today would have been my dear Me-Maw’s 91st Birthday💜 She has been gone for 3 years and she is dearly missed. I think about her often and I miss her more and more every time a memory surfaces. I wonder what her sweetheart, my Paw-Paw, is doing for her today in heaven to help her celebrate 🙂 I think he probably surprised her somehow. And no doubt they have already had a brief moment of their adorable bickering followed by a sweet kiss 💏 #happybirthdaymemaw #iloveyou!

When I first started my business almost 9 years ago, I thought that part of what was so great about working for myself was that I could work any time of day and not be stuck to a 9-5 structure. I could work at midnight or on Sundays... whenever I wanted! ⏰ And while that’s true, it is pretty great to have that flexibility, that mindset can lead to anxiety, stress, overwhelm, and it can exacerbate workaholic tendencies, which I tend to have. 🙋♀️ I started to convince myself that I had to be available to my clients 24/7 if I wanted to grow and serve them well. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. I would venture to say that I WASN’T able to serve them well BECAUSE I was always available... 💜 When I finally started implementing business hours, I got my life back. And surprisingly, I was still able to get all my work done in those set hours. I was actually even more productive! I couldn’t believe it! When I allowed myself to not be on the clock 24/7, I experienced such freedom. I started enjoying the evenings again. I started hanging out with friends and didn’t check my email and it was okay. I started connecting with my husband again. And because I wasn’t as stressed anymore, I was able to now serve my clients better! Hallelujah! 🎉 I'd love to chat with you! Have you ever struggled with the I have to be on the clock 24/7 mindset? Comment below with your thoughts, questions, comments, concerns, etc. and let's have a conversation! 🙌🏻 #businesshours #entrepreneurlife #smallbusinessowner #girlboss
We photographed our first wedding of 2018 on Saturday and despite the cold, rainy, windy weather, we had a blast! Charlie and Katie were SO wonderful and easy to work with! They were the epitome of chill and trusting. They were such good sports and wanted to brave the weather in order to get Katie's dream outdoor photos! I love having clients like them! Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Farquhar! ❤️ - Venue: @theledgesclub Florals: In Bloom Floral Design Studio Hair and Makeup: @thetransformation Dress: Modern Brides

I am such a believer in the power of your mindset. The things we tell ourselves can shape us and the outcome of our circumstances more than we even realize. • Now please hear me...I'm not saying that if we believe something good will happen, it WILL happen. But I do think that if we believe something good WON'T happen, then there is a good chance it won't. • What is that one thing that you are on the fence about? You're just not sure if you can make it happen. You may be feeling discouraged or unmotivated for one reason or another. But I encourage you to believe that you can and to do the work. Give it your all. Keep a positive attitude, even if you encounter bumps in the road... Believe you can and you're halfway there!💞
