Seniors: it’s your year! It’s time to start scheduling your Senior Session!! Let’s go to the places that you like to go that fit your personality. You’re an individual, so showcase that through your images! If you want to hang by the ocean, I’m always down for that since there’s nothing that a little salty breeze can’t fix!!
Check on your Florida friends. We’re not okay. Okay, okay, maybe it’s just me! Totally feeling the lack of sunshine in my life. All of this rain has me in some kind of way - like more saucy than normal. Anyone else experiencing this as well? If someone wants to bring me like a truckload of Vitamin D vitamins, that may help. Haha!
To the white Superduty that I was behind for at least twenty minutes this afternoon, if you looked in your rear view mirror and saw me flailing around, it’s okay, I was straight up jamming out to “Welcome to the Jungle”, as well as other 80’s favs! This song is one of the first songs I remember loving and singing as a child...hold your judgement, and it just never gets old. What’s one of your go-to songs?!
What is one thing most couples are searching for in this life? I think it’s more time together and more connection. At the end of the day, aren’t we all seeking more connection in each of our meaningful relationships? We want to feel closer to those we value most. In return, we want others to feel the same way about us. What does this look like in your relationship? Is it quiet time together at the end of the day, trips across the world, or raising your family? It’s different for everyone, and that’s what makes us all special and unique. No need to compare and assume that what you have is any less special than someone else, just because it looks different. Everyone’s love/relationship looks different, and that’s one hundred percent okay! Enjoy those moments together. Take it in. Make it count.
Do you know what the number one culprit of stealing joy is? It’s lack of rest. Okay, I may have just made that up, but it’s true for me. The less rest I have, the more emotional (in a not so awesome way) I become. Small things affect me a lot differently than they might otherwise. I get in my head, stress out and get flustered at the drop of a hat. This is where I’m at. I haven’t slept as much as I personally need over the past couple of days, and my mind and spirit is feeling it. Do you feel this way, too? What things help you push through this time until you get the rest your mind and body need and deserve?
It’s one thing for me to capture a beautiful or unique image for you, but it’s another thing for me to see your soul. There are so many images from my time with Bree and Darren that I absolutely love, but this real shot of her bursting into laughter is one of my favs! Okay, and all of the ones that make your eyes wet are my favorite, too. I love the comfort that these two had with not only each other, but with me. They found freedom in being themselves and it made their love for one another shine through even more. Today, Bree and Darren are being featured on the blog, so head on over to see more from our time together!! Link in profile.
Something happened last night. Something that left me sad and now I do not even know what to with myself. Last night, we finished the last episode of Stranger Things. We’ve held off on watching merely for the sake of not wanting it to be over. I’m not sure why nobody warned me and I wasn’t prepared. I cried. [did you expect any less] As soon as it was over, I quickly hit Google to see when to expect the next Season. Undetermined. Ugh. Basically, it looks as though according to their pattern that we could be waiting for like at least a year and a half. I’m grateful to have been late to the party, simply for the fact of not having to wait like this on the previous seasons. Haha. But geeze, what do I do with myself now?!
Did you know that it’s okay to celebrate your love outside of your wedding day? Yes, that day was super special and will always stand apart in your mind, but what about all of the anniversaries to follow? Don’t they deserve to be held in high regards as well? That’s exactly what these two sweet humans did - celebrated their 15 years of marriage with photos!! Let’s start giving ourselves permission to say every year is a milestone to be celebrated, even if by the “world’s standards” it seems inferior. There’s more goodness on the Blog today for your viewing pleasure, so head on over!
Oregon, I’d hate you if I didn’t like you so much! Love, A bitter and hot Floridian Also, if you’re on the West Coast and accepting applications for roommates, let me know! Haha!!
This week I’m working on falling back into routine. After basically over a week and a half with no routine, I’m craving it. Honestly, my days are never the same in the middle and end, but I do like the consistency at the beginning of the day. For me personally, that’s finding myself training my body. I never thought I would be “that person” who enjoys working out, but honestly, it’s more that I enjoy starting my day in the gym because it sets me up mentally for the rest of my day. I’m not making hugely noticeable improvement physically over here, but getting my brain set for the day has become a need, almost second nature. That doesn’t mean that I’m not crazy or have really off days, but I can tell a difference in my spirit most of the time. So, as hard as it may be to kick myself out of bed early and to be set back a little in how much weight I’m using, that’s okay because I’m taking care of me and I’m not sorry about it!! What are your goals for this week?
