The Come Together Event Hits the Road!

  • We're Heading to Arizona!

The Rising Tide recently did an Instagram challenge week and it went viral!! It was awesome!! I loved seeing everyone get involved. However, my FAVORITE posts were on the day when they encouraged their followers to tag a fellow creative that they loved and were thankful for!! And you want to know what a common thread was on my feed? There were TONS of creatives sharing pictures of their new friends that they met at our first COME TOGETHER EVENT!!!!

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!
