Heading

home is such a mix of emotions…. and that’s a good thing. Michael and I have spent the last 4 days in Rome, GA for the CONNECT Marriage retreat. I’m thankful that I wasn’t ready to leave . I’m thankful that I wish we had more time there because that means that we had an AMAZING week. Incredible couples, hilarious relationship building exercises and time to re-connect with our spouses an old friends… what could be better?! I’ll tell you what could be better…. having all of this amazingness in one place and have Chickfila food!! :)

going to think I’m so strange but I actually find joy in creating new systems for organizing our life. Some of you think we’re uber organized and we’re not… you just see the parts of our lives that are “put together”.

I haven’t completely mastered this area of organization yet but I’m getting closer to really having a system that works. I obviously love photography… which means that I love having pictures of my family and our life.

This time last year we were in a MASSIVE transition period in both our business and personal lives. It’s funny when you look back at certain seasons of your life and you realize just how CRAZY you were.

What I Wish We Had Learned

This

is a post that really has absolutely nothing to do with photography…. but I’ve been thinking about this for A WHILE. Really every since I got married!! The more I learn and experience in my “adult” life the more I realize just how STRONGLY I feel about this subject!! Since getting marred and starting a business and living in the “real world”… I have realized that there was actually VERY LITTLE that I learned in High School and even college about the BASIC life realities. Now don’t get me wrong, I was SO BLESSED growing up with

Ok

I’m changing my mind. Earlier this week I blogged and mentioned that I was ok with more snow! I’m sure a ton of people disagreed with me. I enjoyed a slow day on Monday but today, Michael informed me that there is a chance of snow AGAIN next week!! WHAT?! Ok this is where I draw the line! I love winter. I love snow. I love snow days and all that come with them…. but I think I’m ready to say LETS MOVE ON!! Spring is welcome. I’m ready for it. Bring it on!! I’m pulling out my flip flops!! There are a few things I REALLY looking forward to! :
