A Reminder

This Is Not My Own

Well

I had a different post on the “blogging calendar” for today. For some, it may have been more exciting than what I’m about to share but I know deep down that this is more important. I mean, if I CHANGE the blogging calendar, you KNOW it’s for a good reason because that doesn’t happen often! :) So Michael and I are in Santa Barbara, CA for the UNITED conference and it’s just amazing. Amazing people, amazing food, amazing views, amazing classes… but what is TRULY amazing to me is how God uses relationships and connections to change people’s lives.

There

are some days when you just need to enjoy life. Last friday was one of those days for us. We have been working hard to prep for the upcoming conferences and still manage everyday business stuff. It’s a lot to keep up with, especially when this is supposed to be the season of rest for us wedding photographers!

Did you know that there are shower GAMES and TRADITIONS and even SUPERSTITIONS?! These were some of the things that I learned as a bride! It’s fun to watch my sister learn all of these things now that she is a bride!

Sometimes

it “snows” and then other times it REALLY snows! Like, flakes the size of quarters! Thats the type of snowfall that requires a mini photo shoot! Yesterday I was sitting at the kitchen table, working on my WPPI presentation when Michael told me to look outside! The flakes were absolutely beautiful!!! And they were coming down hard! It’s the type of snow that you see in the Christmas movies and you think “It never looks like that”. Well yesterday it TOTALLY looked like a movie outside of our house! After a few minutes of watching the snow fall from the kitchen, I realized “Hey! We need family pictures of this!!”.

TIPS-FOR-HOME-BUILDING

As

most of you know, we built a house last year!! This time last year they were breaking ground and we were FREAKING OUT!! So exciting and so overwhelming at the same time. We were such newbies and we learned so much through this process! We’ve received some emails from other couples who are entering into the home building stage and while we aren’t pros, we did learn a few things about the whole process!! We built with Eagle Construction in Goochland, VA and there were a few reasons we decided that we HAD to work with this company. Eagle’s floor plans were unlike anything we had seen in the area.
