Life lately.

I can't thank you all enough for your encouraging comments, texts, emails, tweets, and all the love on yesterday's post! It truly means the world that Caleb and I have so many people "on our team" to cheer us on through this new and exciting journey!

I never did blog about my weekend, mainly because I haven't had time to sit down and upload all the pictures from my memory card, but I realized I just didn't care. I don't want to forget all the awesomeness that took place!

Last Friday we headed out to Athens, OH (it was actually Nelsonville, but almost no one knows where that is) to photograph our LAST WEDDING OF THE YEAR! I can hardly believe it when I say that out loud; 31 weddings this year?! I get a little exhausted just thinking about it, but it's something I'm really proud that we accomplished!

We photographed inside an old Opera House from the 1800's and it was AWESOME! Caleb and I love shooting in non traditional venues!!

We drove home early Sunday morning in time for our first Christmas celebration with Caleb's side of the family and it was a great time. I got so many wonderful gifts (like I wish I had the photo ready of my face when I opened my brand new 12 cup food processor - eek!!) and Caleb and I left with an entire laundry basket full of new gifts. We're so thankful!

Right after that, we rushed to meet up with our high schoolers to go Christmas caroling that evening! Like I said, I really wish I had the photos uploaded already so I could share the emotion, but with every home we stopped at, we all got more and more emotional. Every elderly member of the church we sang to had tears in their eyes. It was honestly such a moving experience! I hope we can make this an annual tradition!

I'm excited to report Caleb and I HAVE been a lot more festive since I created my December to do list earlier in the month. It feels great to really be celebrating Christmas every day leading up! We basically celebrate it until the new year!

I hope everyone has a fun day! I unfortunately have to work all week, but I took a couple extra days off next week to enjoy with Caleb. Can't wait to unplug and just BE! 


  1. I'm glad that you've been feeling more festive! I hope the rest of the week flies & that you have an amazing Christmas weekend.

  2. Whenever I read "Athens" I get confused because I'm from Athens, GA. Six years with my in laws from Ohio and I'm always like "wait! when were you in GA?!" LOL. And I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday, but YAYYYYYY! So excited for y'all and the website looks great!!

  3. The food processor present sounds like the best!!!! What a great present! And congrats on your last wedding of the year!! Woo hoo for some much needed time off- y'all deserve it!! I hope y'all have the best Christmas!!! :)

  4. Ahhh 12 cup food processor? Girl after my own heart!

  5. I love that so many happy things are happening for you to close out 2016. 2017 is going to be a year of happiness, growth, learning, and success. I just know it. I hope you had a great Christmas and have a very happy New Year friend. Love you!


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
