I apologize for last week’s absent edition. I unfortunately was sick AGAIN! ūüė° ¬†It’s¬†apparently¬†a never ending battle when you work with small children at a daycare. Let’s hope I’m out of the woods for awhile. I don’t think I can handle getting sick again, not when I have so much to do!

Anywho, lets get on to the good stuff!

So it’s been two weeks since I last updated and several awesome things have happened since then;

I’ve managed to meet with some amazing couples who in turn have booked me for their weddings! I am so excited for this wedding season I could literally get up and start dancing. Every one of my brides are beautiful inside and out! I can’t wait to share their stories with you!

I also had the opportunity to meet a new baby named Gabrielle, I’ll share her story with you very soon!

My gallery show went off with ¬†out a hitch and I was overwhelmed by the comments and conversations I had with people I hadn’t met before. It was beautiful to know that my work moved them. I heard stories of people crying when they saw certain images and how other images reminded them of how precious life is. Wow! God really speaks through everyone and everything! I was truly humbled and grateful for everyones attendance and help!

The cutest little boy in my world turned 1 on the 21st! How time flies away! He’s already walking and talking and shoving cake into his cute little mouth! Ah!

Donna and I are in apartment hunter mode. We’ve got to lock down a place soon or we wont have a place to live come¬†July 1st! Anyone got a sweet 2 or 3 bedroom for cheap located near Donna’s workplace? That’s not much to ask is it? ūüėõ

I have some good bloggage coming your way this week so keep your eyes peeled! Or not…that may hurt a bit….

Marvelous Monday : The Life Update Edition


view the story

If you’ve been keeping up with the Marvelous Mondays then last week you were¬†disappointed. I was too. I neglected to post up the Marvelous Monday that week due to a crazy busy schedule and a wonderfully awful cold. So my Monday was not so Marvelous and was made even worse by the fact that I couldn’t make it marvelous here in blog world!

I guess i’ll just have to make it up this week huh?

I’m no longer sickipoo which is great! I really feel energized and I’m so excited to get back into my work out routine! Yay! The gym is deserted at 7am. It’s a beautiful thing!

I mentioned in the Valentine edition that my best friend and roommate Lillian got engaged and I was there to witness/document the whole event! Here are a couple shots after she said “Yes!”

Finally March is here! The cold is almost over! The great thing about March is you never know what it’s going to bring. Sometimes it’s the coldest month out of the winter and sometimes spring comes early. Last year we were lucky and spring came running back home! I hope it’s like that this year. The past week has been really warm even though we got dumped on with snow. However, I do really enjoy cute sweaters during the winter months so it is a toss up when it comes to fashion:

Etsy is the best online place on earth. I can literally spend hours there and not get bored!

Another good thing about March is that it’s right next to April which means my brithday is right around the corner! So if any one is interested in purchasing a bday gift (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)…just kidding! Here are some things that are going on my wishlist! But, if I don’t get them I’ll buy them regardless!

Bob and Dawn Davis are masters of their craft. Bob explains his lighting techniques so easily! I love listening to them talk! I’m super excited that Bob has his first book coming out soon, it’s going to be a stellar read!

Bob and Dawn are also advocates for Thirst Relief, which is an awesome organization of photographers looking to make clean water accessible to everyone around the world! Check out their website

I don’t think I need to explain my desire for an old fashion camera necklacce….Etsy makes my world go round!

I’m not one to spend money on shoes (though I have a lot). I tend to find them on sale and such. These are the Toppazz by Steve Madden. Yes these are much more money then I’m use to spending BUT They’re possibly the most beautiful shoes I’ve ever seen in my life AND Lillian wants her bridesmaids to wear them in the wedding. Added bonus I got my dress for $17!!!!! So I don’t really mind buying these puppies.

I am very excited to announce my first ever gallery show! It’ll be opening this week and run the whole month of March at The Vineyard Church over by the Fairgrounds. I am also having a reception on March 2oth at 6:30pm I’d be so honored if you came! It’ll feature a bit of everything. I am so¬†relieved¬†that it’s finally here. It’s been my world for the past month or so.

Well that wraps up another Marvelous Monday! I hope your day is full of joy and that your Monday is a little bit brighter than it was before!
