A House Update!

  • We're Almost Done!

We get asked the same two questions these days… when is the baby due and when is the house going to be done. The next question is “So you’re moving in BEFORE the baby comes right?!”. Thank goodness yes. Our move-in date has been pushed back from Thanksgiving, but we WILL be moved in before the baby comes! One of the first people we told about the baby was our builder, because we wanted him to know we had a hard deadline!!! We should be moving in after just a few more weeks if we don’t experience a major roadblock of some kind! We are SO excited!

When I got the email I was THRILLED! Sure, I was going to be 10 weeks pregnant and there was no telling how I would feel shooting in the heat of Charleston, SC in July, but I didn’t care! This was such an honor! I emailed Emily (SW’s Editor!) back as soon as possible and shared our news, and we started planning! I absolutely love the SW Team, for so many different reasons, and so being asked to do an editorial shoot was a highlight of our entire summer! I remember telling Michael that Emily had asked us, and his response was “Well you said YES, right?!”. He knew how excited I would be about this!!!

Jazz Nativity 2016

  • Our Annual Jazz Concert!

This was my FIFTH year of being a part of JAZZ NATIVITY! Now before I continue, let me explain… this isn’t a nativity reenactment! We always seem to confuse people with that! This is a CHRISTMAS JAZZ CONCERT! It started ten years ago, and it has grown every year since! We now have FIVE shows, over 2 hours of numbers, professional lighting teams, Starbucks on-site sponsoring the event, and a total attendance of over 2000 people! It is QUITE a production!
