I am so glad you're here! This is my little corner where I get to share some of my most favorite images from engagements, weddings, births, my travels and my own little family from time to time. Hang out, look around, and please reach out to say hello!
Growing up and towards the end of college, I had jobs that mostly needed me on nights and weekends. It was fine for what it was, but I was really looking forward to getting my nights and weekends back once I graduated and got a real job! Even after college and moving back from Belgium, I worked at a restaurant for a little while and when I made the transition to working at Upward Sports, I was SO excited to have my nights and weekends back! And I tell you all of this to show you that God really does have a sense of humor… I LOVE photography. Every aspect of it (ok, maybe not taxes, but you know what I mean). And I even love that I get to work on weekends :-)
I used to spend a lot of time in the evenings and over the weekends on the computer editing away, but when Ben and I met, I wanted to spend that time with him. And now that we’re married, I try really hard to protect the time that he’s at home! My first priority is God, my second is Ben and (before we have children) then comes everything else. It doesn’t always work out to not work some evenings, but because I have the best husband in the world, he is so understanding when I need to be on the computer some nights. I just love that man!
Because of the more hectic schedule this year during wedding season and still working at the church, I haven’t had a lot of down time. So, today, I’m taking an actual day off. And I’m SOOOO excited. When you read this post I’ll either be at the gym, in the yard pulling a few (thousand) weeds, at a little guy’s 4th birthday party, getting a pedicure, or at the park with a book and bubble tea in hand. And I’m SOOOO excited! I get jealous of people who have time to read and I decided that today was going to be the day I sat down with a book. I used to read all the time! Granted, some of that was because of traveling with work, but still. I loved it!
So, in honor of taking some time off to relax and enjoy life, I’m having a little contest. It’s SUPER easy! Just leave a comment about what you like to do on your day off and I’ll pick a winner (via random.org) and announce them on Tuesday morning’s blog. What’s the prize you ask? Well, I thought a $15 gift card to Barnes & Noble would be quite fitting.
And because every post is better with a picture, here’s where I’ll be hanging out later this afternoon :-)
