Our packed weekend!

Our weekend started out pretty amazing because we got to spend it with our best friends (E & J), eating mexican food...if that's not a perfect combination, I don't know what is. We played mario kart and watched hilarious you tube videos for what felt like hours! It was just what we needed.

Saturday, we had our 24th wedding of the year to photograph and I was determined to have a stress-free wedding day (unlike last weekend due to that silly migraine). From the moment I woke up, I did my best to stay hydrated, packed an entire mini cooler full of food - I'm talking grapes, granola bars, beef jerky, cherry tomatoes, cheese sticks, etc.! You know what? It worked. I felt amazing all day. It helped that our couple, Samantha and Frank, got married in one of the neatest venues in Cincinnati! They had both their ceremony and reception at the American Sign Museum - so it was full of vintage, neon signs!

They were sweet enough to sneak out for about 3 quick minutes for a quick sunset session!

Sunday at church was a blast. We had Mr. Redlegs come out and I took photos all morning of him with the kids/families of our church! Although when football gets here, I'm totally over baseball, it was still a blast!

Sadly, our Bengals lost on Sunday...but the highlight of it all? I got to see my sweet nephew after the game and that made it all better. I stayed home that evening while Caleb went to youth group to finish laundry and catch up on editing and it really set a good tone going into this week. I was able to pack our lunches, and I'm excited for Insanity again tonight!

Hope everyone had a fun weekend, too!
