George + Eleni | Engaged

  • Classic Church Hill Engagement Pictures in Richmond

It seems like I was just sitting with Eleni and her mom at Urban Farmhouse downtown. We talked about their beautiful greek wedding that’s happening next year and all that it will entail! (It’s going to be amazing, friends! I can’t wait!) We also talked about George and how hard he was working in his Residency. We have friends in a similar season of life and I can’t imagine the amount of work that goes into the final years of establishing yourself as a doctor.

Our Little “Constant”

  • Bokeh Boy

Something I’ve realized recently in my life is how thankful I am for the “constants”. You know, the things that just never change. Most of the time, when I think of the “constants” in my life, I’m referring to PEOPLE…. and one little Bichpoo. Bokeh is definitely one of our constants. When he’s around, it just feels like HOME. Maybe that’s because he follows us around the house like a little shadow or because he lays right up against us at bedtime! I don’t know what it is, but I love it! I love having him to come home to!

I’m Going on Creative Live!

  • Monday, September 21st

I received an email about a month ago from CreativeLive and I didn’t think anything of it because I’m on their email list and I always receive updates and reminders in my inbox! However, this was different. I saw that it was addressed just to me! They were emailing ME!!!! The next few paragraphs seemed like a blur! I couldn’t believe it! I have been asked SO MANY TIMES about when I would be going on CreativeLive and my response would always be “One day when I’m good enough!”. That’s honestly what I believed.
