Well yes, I did go an entire week without blogging… Did I probably loose a few followers? Maybe. Was it a time of much needed rest? ABSOLUTELY! Hello friends, despite my sass I am deeply sorry for my absence last week, but man was it needed. I remember sitting at my house in my bed last Monday night and all I could think was, “Shoooottttttt! I forgot to blog!” Whoops! And then I realized I had no idea what to blog about for Tuesday Confessions and it just continued on from there. But no worries I am back and in full swing. The last two weeks have filled my heart with so much needed encouragement and grace! I got the chance to borrow some equipment from the one and only Kaitlyn Phipps and man, it was life changing. I realized that in a lot of ways I still have a ton of stuff to learn but I’ve also learned a lot about photography and the beauty that it is. It lets me know that all the blog stalking, question asking, and random shooting I’ve done is paying off! How exciting is that? So with all that I had an amazing couples session and also one engagement session! Both were amazing and man we were so blessed to have the most incredible light ever! I can’t wait to share those with you this week, well at least one of them. I’ll probably make you wait for the other one till next week, ha!
But besides all that I got to spend a little bit of time with some of my family and it was fun. My nephew and his cute fat self will also be coming to the blog this week. That boy is stealing my heart with every breath he takes. To top it off he’s such a ham! Love him! I also escaped this past weekend to knock off another item on the bucketlist. My best friend and I ventured to the Mile 1 marker of Interstate 81 and it was so much fun! Can’t wait to share that with you next week. Overall I’ve done a lot and it will all be on the blog very soon!
So now for the quirks!
-No matter how much I plan, spontaneity always creeps in and enhances any trip I could ever make. This weekend as I ventured to Tennessee I had made all these plans for Carlie and I to do on our little adventure. Little did we know the town of Dandridge was exploding with life this past Saturday. There was a Scottish music festival happening, along with massive little book sales, and so much more. It definitely ended up being better than anything I expected!
-I have found the beauty of SnapChat stories. Carlie and I documented our entire trip via snap’s story option. It was a blast!
-You know I love my friends and want them to have the most perfect time with their photos when I’m willing to get knee deep in water so that I can capture the image to my best ability. I did this last weekend and had to completely remove my tights, and boots and hold my dress up while taking these pictures. It was crazy, but so good.
-I love it when my friends show me new music! Seriously!! My friends love this band State Champs, and recently they released a new acoustic album. You must give it a listen. Personal favorite is definitely Elevated!
-On the topic of music if I could just listen to my Ben Rector Pandora station all day I’d be very happy. The perfect mix off all my favorites, Ben Rector, NEEDTOBREATHE, Ron Pope, Ray Lamountagne, and so many more! It’s simply perfect!
-I am almost halfway through season 8 of One Tree Hill. For you fellow fans you know that means I only about 30 episodes left. All I can say is, let the tears begin!
-Crying is always a good thing! I mean SERIOUSLY! Always a good thing! If you need to just do it.
