Bring it on, April!

Friday night Caleb had planned a hot date for us. To be totally honest, it had been a while since we'd been out on a REAL, planned date! We honestly just love being home on Friday evenings (since we are used to working quite a few Saturdays per month), but this was such a nice change of pace. We had the best meal and then we walked around the town shops before seeing Beauty and the Beast!

The movie was AMAZING. I thought they did such a great job with all the songs, the outfits, and just the overall movie itself. It was comical, dramatic, romantic; everything you could want from a movie! I'm so thankful for this man of mine, we had the best night together!

Saturday we had a wedding to photograph - yes, on April fools day! This couple was hilarious. They were full of jokes and tricks the entire day. Ashley put on a fake beard for their first look, Dustin came INTO their reception in a T-rex costume, and for their cake smash they asked the bridal party to surround them during it, and smashed THEM instead of each other. It was so easy photographing these two because they were all smiles, ALL DAY!! :)

Ashley was a bridesmaid in one of the first weddings we ever photographed, so it was fun to see some familiar faces throughout the day, and at the reception! :)

Sunday Caleb and I went to the early service at church and did some meal prep for the week. We also spent some time walking to/from the park and playing frisbee golf. I'm not very good at it, but it's fun to get outside and be active! We had such beautiful weather yesterday here in Cincinnati, we just had to enjoy it!

Today the office is pretty empty, as it's Opening Day! Cincinnati takes this day VERY seriously. It's crazy how many people will take the day off work and celebrate. Although, I did do the same a few years ago because my brother was playing in the parade! That was such a cool moment that I'll never forget!

Today is ALSO a very special day! It's my Great Grandma Agnes' birthday, as well as my friend Anna's birthday! :) so thankful for both of these amazing ladies in my life.

I hope you have a fantastic week, friends! Make it a great one! I have really high hopes for April and can't wait to get going on all my goals, etc.!


  1. That wedding sounds incredibly fun!!!! Love her dress and that last picture of them!! We love being home on Friday nights's just so relaxing after a long week lol.
