You Might Be a First Timer Home Builder If....

  • The New House

any new phase of life, we’re getting advice on our home building process. When we got a puppy, everyone told us what to do and what not to do…. and while some of what we learned about being puppy parents was trial and error…. I don’t want to learn that way when it comes to building our house! There is no room for error! So we’re listening closely to those that have been down the road before. After meeting with our site manager, I’m sure he just laughed at how ridiculously excited we are! I mean, at the time, it was just DIRT. We were excited about DIRT….. because it’s OUR dirt!!

  • The Workshop Experience

of people I need to thank in this post is a little overwhelming! SO many people come together to make my workshops happen and every time we host them, I’m reminded that I could never do this on my own! I’m SO thankful for everyone who helped out. Vendors, sponsors, attendees, the caterer, the venue, my mother in law, Rebekah Hoyt, Jessica Beale, Michael, etc. Really, the list just goes on and on. I did a post a month or so ago with some behind the scenes images. Today’s post is showing off the styled shoot side of the Fall Workshop Experience and I couldn’t be more excited!! I honestly LOVE these images so much! Janie Medley from The Bride’s Cafe and Dana Fitzgerald (an incredible stylist!) joined forces once again and made this shoot come to life!! The Virginia Center for Architecture has never looked so BRIGHT!!

The Blog has had a Makover

  • New Year, New Look

definitely a big season for KJP! So many changes are taking place and the most recent change would HAVE to be the blog’s new facelift!! You like?! It’s different but it’s still ME and I love it! Flosites do my blog design work and for those that have been asking about the backend of my blog, it’s wordpress. Basically, I have WordPress with a fancy exterior and a few special features! My FAVORITE feature about this new blog is that viewers have the ability to scan through previews of weddings by clicking “Weddings” on the top menu bar! So thank you for stopping by and if you have a free minute,
