He’s a furry

he’s a snuggler and he’s absolutely everything we hoped he would be! I thought about blogging about him on the 5 hour drive home yesterday to show this little ball of cuteness to the WORLD! …. But I was a little preoccupied. When we saw him for the first time, he didn’t even seem real. He really looks like a stuffed animal… only more adorable and wiggly.  BOKEH (pronounced “bo-ca”) is an eight week old Bich-Poo. He’s absolutely beautiful. Michael and I wanted a little apricot colored fluffball that wouldn’t make Michael SNEEZE… and this was the perfect option!! Bich-Poos are a

The Time Has Come!

It's Puppy Time!!!

Since it’s

technically Monday the 16th, I can officially say that TODAY is the DAY!!!! Michael and I are at my parent’s house and we’ll be getting up at the crack of dawn to travel north and pick up our PUPPY!!!!!! To say we are excited would be an understatement!! I’ve been looking forward to this day since CHRISTMAS! Now I’m not going to tell you what kind of dog or even the name…. you’ll just have to wait and be surprised… but I WILL tell you that it’s a “HE” and he is adorable… and quite tiny:).  If you’ve been to our house before, then you know how small it is… a small dog was the only option! We can’t wait to bring this little guy home and have a

It started

in college.  I’m a loud person… most of the time. When I get excited, I squeal.  When I laugh, I don’t hold anything back. When I sing, I like to sound like a soulful black girl… and I mean that will all the respect in the world.  Whitney, Mariah and Beyonce could be the only artists in my itunes library and I would never desire to listen to anything else… well Cece Winans can be added in there too… I gotta have some Jesus music in there somewhere!  I led groups in college and was the leader of the worship team for Intervarsity… I had 4 hour practices every week and then led worship the following night.  I never slept. Once I started this business, I would stay up until

I have been making some changes in my life. I guess you can call them new years resolutions because these lifestyle changes all sound like changes people would make at the beginning of the new year. I didn’t really go into 2012 with a list of hardcore lifestyle adjustments…. I just knew something needed to be different. My time management needed to improve, my “systems” needed to be enhanced and my workout life needed to be resurrected!!! Seriously, just holding a heavy camera up once a week

There are

 

so many options when it comes to EXITS! It used to be that “Birdseed” was what you threw at EVERY wedding for the exit. I’m not hating on Birdseed exits because we had a birdseed exit at OUR wedding! (I will warn you thought… that’s a nasty mess to clean up later… my dress and hair were COVERED with seed!!!).  But Birdseed went along with our “Peacock, birdcage, vintage” theme so we had to use it! These days, there are so many more options out there! I’ve heard of people throwing lavendar, live butterflies, etc! It’s really a fun part of the day to make unique! Most people opt for sparklers and
