Insta-update!

Hiiii my name is Kayla and I blog here. Remember me? I've been kinda sporadic lately with my posts. Life has just been so busy lately with youth outings, photography consults, shoots, and you know, spending time with my husband! :) and while I'm not going to apologize for it, I do realize how much I miss blogging when I don't make the time for it. SO I thought I'd update you on my life this week, via the little squares I keep in my iPhone album;

1. I took the plunge last night and went back to shorter, blonder hair! I'm not cut out for long hair, and I'm finally learning that its okay. Some girls can pull off the long locks and they rock it, but that's just not me. Caleb told me to copy my girl crush (Jen Aniston) and get a shoulder length cut. Cracks me up, but I love it! Making time for me last night felt great. I always forget how good it feels to get a few inches chopped and get your hair washed. Ha!

2. After said hair appointment, I was able to get dinner with two of my best friends and sweet baby Norah!!! It was so spontaneous and I'm so glad it worked out. I miss my friends!

3. This amazing sunset last night. This photo doesn't do it justice, at all...and I even tried to take one with my DSLR but it was so humid my camera fogged up almost like we were in the south. Sometimes, Caleb and I knock on our tiny apartment, but I know we have one of the best views for sunsets...and that makes it all worth it

4. Guys, I'm kinda crazy about this man. He recently picked back up playing the guitar and has taken initiative to play every single night and teach himself new songs. We've been playing and singing EVERY night the past week...add that in with the sunset and I'd say we're having some amazing evenings together!

I have a couple meetings tonight with brides but after that I am hoping to get some blog posts together of some recent weddings we've shot! I love sharing our work and I hope to do it more :) hope you all have a great Thursday!!

  5. Your hair looks gorgeous! I think you're just meant to be a blonde bombshell. ;) I wish I could play guitar! I can play piano and this makes me want to play more often! I miss it when I take these extended breaks. It doesn't help that my piano is in Ohio, so all I have is a small keyboard in our living room. Better than nothing! Gorgeous sunset and I can't wait to see your wedding shots!!

  6. I've recently started coming to terms with the fact that long hair just isn't for me either. Shoulder length is where it's at. That cut and color are just perfect for you!

  7. I love your hair styled this way!! The soft wave is perfect!
    And while Ohio has come killer winters we have some pretty fabulous summer nights, don't we?

  8. Cute new do!! Sometimes I have the urge to just chop mine off but then I quickly remember I have curly hair and that wouldn't be the best thing to do!!

    If you guys ever get road trip antsy, you should trek down to Memphis/Nashville and check out the home of Gibson guitars. You'd love it!

  9. I love having short hair too - long hair is so much work! Your cut and color look amazing! That is a pretty amazing sunset and I'm super jealous your man is playing the guitar. I bought the BF a ukelele forever ago hoping he'd serenade me and it hasn't happened yet! haha.

  16. I'm not a long hair girl either. I've tried and tried and I think I've finally accepted it just does not work for me. Two weeks ago I got it cut to a chin length bob and I've never been happier! :)

    That is some prime sunset viewing! We are looking for houses now and Matt rules houses in/our based on things like the electrical systems and the roof and insulation I pretty much judge the house on how good the view of the sky and sunset is. Obviously Matt is loving this house hunting experience! :)

  17. LOVE your haircut! i wish i had the patience for shorter hair, but i'm a long hair gal through and through. one day i'll learn and stop chopping it all off every couple of years

  18. Your hair looks AMAZING! Long hair definitely isn't for everyone... I've been so happy with my mid-length to short hair for over a year now until my last haircut where she got it way too short. So now I'm in the process of growing it out to try long again, although I'm sure I'll be back to mid-length sooner rather than later :)
