Rest. Pause. Break. Comma. Breathing room. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday was #nationalsocialmediaday and while I’m super grateful for the good parts if it, such as meeting my hubby on MySpace and growing my dream career of being a wedding photographer, it can also be suffocating. Like an ongoing sentence. Almost like dragged out note that goes on forever. Always worrying about how many likes my post’s getting, how much engagement. Which isn’t truly a bad thing in itself but it’s easy to get burned out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Which is why I will be taking a Social Media Sabbatical. One whole month of living in the moment with Alex and the girls without the worry of needing to post on Instagram or Facebook. I’ve been wanting to do one for so long and have always been scared. But now I’m kinda stoked. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I will still be checking my emails so please don’t hesitate to use the email button under my bio to inquire and reach out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See you in August! ❤️ Stay cool and hydrated and most of all remember rest is the new hustle (at least during the off-season). 😎 . . . 📷: @andrearhowey
Today I'm feeling extremely grateful for all my vendor friends or friendors as I like to call them. Ladies who step up when I need encouragement, who openly help one another when going through a tough time. This post is for you. . I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy... Philippians 1:3,4 . Happy Thursday everyone! Your turn, tag someone you're super grateful for, someone who you know needs encouragement and extra love today! :) . . .

Happy #humpday!!! How is it Wednesday already?? TIME PLEASE SLOW DOWN! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I just wanted to hop on here to tell you that wherever you're in life right now, YOU GOT THIS! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know life can be pretty annoyingly hard sometimes, but just know that you got me, on your side, cheering you on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A month from now, a year, even FIVE years from now, you will look back at this time in your life, and you might even be thankful for what you had to go through because it made you stronger, bolder, and it taught you to enjoy life and love harder! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If theres anything in particular that I can help you with or pray for with you, let me know, I'm here for you! If you need someone to motivate you to eat better, or go to the gym, if you need prayer for wisdom, clarity or peace, or if you need help with this photography thing you want to focus on, I'm your gal! :) . . . #weddingwednesday #phoenixweddingphotographer #arizonaweddings #sheislight #cultivatejoy
Ugh sorry guys. I totally slacked the past two weeks on the #tuesdaytipswithveronica, but I'm back! Today's tip has to do with healthy eating. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who loves snacking. This girl! You too??? WOOHOOOO!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But if you're anything like me, you know that snacking on healthy food can be a drag. Who has time to clean AND chop up some celery when there's a chewy granola bar in the pantry? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Something I've been doing for the past 2 weeks is I prep my snacks. I'm not really good at prepping my meals, but I love prepping my snacks. I put them in ziploc baggies and date and write down the nutritional value for the amount thats in the bag. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So when I'm sitting at my desk working and feeling a little bit hungry, I don't have to eat a bunch of sugary snacks that don't really fill me up, because I have prepared some goodness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Personal faves? Cup of blackberries with 2 tbsp of coconut flakes and 1 tsp of honey or half a cup of pistachios! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your favorite snack?
Confession: I’ve pretty exclusively been listening to the Dramatic Piano and Classical music while at the gym. There's just something about it that just pumps me up! I'll blame it on the long years of music school in Romania. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I need a new soundtrack for my morning runs and resistance training. What are you listening to these days that fits that bill? Please hold the techno, though, I know I'm European but that just does absolutely nothing for me.
This is us. Sweaty. Hot. Tired. Overjoyed. What will Abbie remember? HOT!! Andddd so much fun! What will Addison remember? Probably nothing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This past Saturday we spent time as a family at the zoo! I don’t know if we were crazy to go in such heat or smart because it was practically empty! We drank over 3 liters of water, walked over 5000 steps and laughed, a lot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So excited to cultivate more family memories and grow meaningful relationships! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What fun thing did you do this past weekend? Let me know, especially if you’re from Arizona, I need to add more fun activities to our summer bucket list!
