Falling for the weekend.

We had a really great weekend. Friday we had a Fall hangout with our church (aka everyone brings their best pot of chili and we all indulge), hangout with friends, then end the night with s'mores! Caleb and I mostly hung out with the youth group teenagers for whatever reason, and they kept us crazy active. Running all over the camp site, tossing football and just walking around while chatting. We've been so blessed by volunteering to help lead this group for the last (almost) 4 years, and its been fun watching these kids grow up!

So excited to finally have a photo of us that's not a close-up selfie! ;) you'd think the photographer would always have updated photos - but whats the old saying? The plumbers sink is always the last to get fixed? You get what I'm saying!


Saturday was a wedding I had really been looking forward to. The bride, Christina, felt like an old friend when we initially met for coffee over a year ago. She's a local vendor as well, and does wedding planning in the area! I just knew their day would be insanely beautiful, since she has that creative eye!
Who knew a random alley way (that smelled so terrible) could be so beautiful?!



Their ceremony was one of the most emotional we'd ever seen, and it was short and sweet! Their vows were tear-filled, and from the heart. There wasn't a dry eye in the park. Outdoor ceremonies kind of make my heart sing :)

Although our day was pretty long, it was great. The entire day was really easy, and we really had a great time. Bonus points for grabbing a selfie with this cutie!

Before we say goodbye, we always put our cameras away for a few minutes and hit the dance floor. Somehow, we always manage to slow dance when Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" comes on, then really get the dancing shoes out for some faster paced music. The bride must've liked Caleb's moves because she immediately starting imitating him and I happened to pick my camera up from the table to snag this in time - and I'm so happy I did, ha!

Sunday was pretty busy - with cleaning the house, experiencing another Bengals loss (insert all the sad faces here) - but getting to see my nephew!! Then going back home so Caleb could prep the youth group lesson for that night. He killed it! He is so great with the teens and is such a natural teacher/leader, it was fun watching him bring the Word to them!

I hope everyone has a great week. Mine is definitely JAM-PACKED, but after Saturday's short wedding day we leave for vacation and I could NOT be more excited!!! :) I'm so ready to unplug and just spend time with some of my favorite people.

  2. So the Bengals were going to lose ever before they stepped foot on the field. They hadn't won in New England since 1986. This fact made yesterday's lost easier for me to handle.
