Nov, Dec, & Jan 2013 - 2014

  • Coaching

have been so many amazing new coaching friends that have come into our life the last two months! I thought that during the down season, I would have more free days for “ask anything” posts and more personal posts but I have YET to have a week like that! Between travels and weekend adventures and off season engagement shoots, the blogging schedule has stayed full! I’m excited to share a beauuutiful wintery engagement session later this week but today I’m showing off some coaching friends!

Big Spring Farm, Lexington VA

  • Couples Retreat 2014

college I learned a lot of great things. I still remember some of my “Communication Theories” and a few of my many presentations from my four years at CNU. However, the most memorable and life changing thing I learned during my college years was the value of beautiful friendships. The friends that Michael and I made during our time at Christopher Newport University are friends that we plan on spending a lifetime with. They’re uplifting, life giving and we always leave our time with them feeling refreshed and joyful. You can’t find friends like that everywhere.

The Morning Room Makeover

  • The New House

said “Making a house a “home” is going to take some time KK”…. and she was right. As much as I wished our home could be furnished immediately, it’s taking some time to piece it together. However, with the newly decorated morning room, I’m feeling like everything downstairs is a little more “complete”!! Up until a few weeks ago, the morning room wasn’t very user friendly. We had a 5×7 Pottery Barn rug and an old settee from our first house that wouldn’t fit in any other room. It was awkward and uncomfortable and NO ONE sat on it.
