⚡️⚡️⚡️ THUNDERSTORMS ARE HERE!⚡️⚡️⚡️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We were woken up at 3am by some of the loudest thunder ever! And that’s coming from a girl who dealt with Arizona monsoon season. The whole house shook. I look at Alex and say, “scoot over, Abbie will be here soon.” As soon as the next thunder hit, Abbie was by my bed. I cuddled with her as she flinched and squeezed me every time a new one hit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re pretty new here you might not know that in 2017, our house got hit by lightning. God was so good though, and knew how scared 3 year old Abbie would be. As soon as the house got hit, the power in the whole house went out, EXCEPT Abbie’s room! It was such a miracle. Truly. Because as usual, we didn’t charge our phones, as we were getting ready to go to sleep. So both our phones were practically dead, and I was able to let Abbie and Addison stay in their lit room while we gathered our most important things and head out at 11:30pm to go to my in laws. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To say that Abbie is scared of thunder is definitely an understatement, so to make her feel better during this rainstorm, we’re turning this office day into a playtime day! What’s your favorite games to play during power outages?
I've always said I have the best couples ever, but you guys, I'm serious! Katie & Nick are what ideal couple dreams are made of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They love each other, insanely. They love to laugh and have a good time. The way Nick looks at her, and the way Katie feels so safe in his arms. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was so fun photographing them right before I flew to Hawaii with the girls, and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding day in a few months! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to see more of their engagement session, check out the blog post! #linkinbio
This beach right here? It’s in my backyard. Not literally but a very short (2 minutes to be exact) drive from my house! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was so fun getting to know the Patterson family a few days ago, photograph their sweet family, and talk about the island life! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And how cute is their little doggy? 🐶😍
The girls have officially been on more than a dozen flights since our move to the island! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First trip, we packed way too many toys, and not enough snacks. We all have to learn somehow haha! Anyways, I want to put together a blog post and would love to hear what kind of question about traveling with kids and toddlers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me know below or in my direct messages! ❤️
Hey, did you think, I think Veronica forgot about her monthly giveaways. Come on guys, while it’s 100% the norm for me to forget things, I did not forget about this! I just had a few gifts to choose from and wanted to separate them so it’s not always just gift cards. I want to bless you with some of my favorite things. And that can be book, gift cards to my favorite stores, hair products, books, free sessions, Hawaii cookies, etc. Good things are coming friends! If you know me, you know that one of my favorite hobbies and ways to unwind is by cuddling up on the couch and read a great book. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Recently I made the decision that before I go to sleep there won’t be mindless scrolling to get me tired, but instead I would end the night with a book. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That being said, the June giveaway consists of these three books I’ve read and loved so much! @jessaconnolly @johnmarkcomer and @laracasey speak so much truth! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As before, all you have to do to is just like all the photos I posted for the month of June! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy my friends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who’s a little book nerd like me? Or better yet, who’s a mom book nerd that needs to find time in her day to refresh her mind? 🙋🏼♀️ This giveaway is not endorsed by Instagram and the book authors. Winner will be picked on July 2, 2019 at 8pm AZ time! ❤️
Young love. My favorite kind of love! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fun fact about Alex and me. We actually met the summer we both turned 18. Our first conversation was on MySpace! Oooo that seems like forever ago amiright? We dated for 2 years and got married in March 2012, two months short of being 21. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Someone asked me a while ago, if I could go back, would I still get married at 20? My answer? HECK YES! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #marriedyoung
