  • Showit SHARE Group

me all the time “Who did your website!?” and the answer is always so complicated. If you’re talking about the Blog, Flosites designed it and they did a magnificent job. I loved working with them and I’m STILL working with them! If you’re talking about my Website, I designed it through Showit! The thing about Showit is that it’s not just a web design platform, it’s a community! Now, do I pay $39 a month to have friends? No, the community of Showit is just an added bonus and I really cherish these relationships! We recently had a Share Group meetup in Downtown the other night. It’s hard to get together in the middle of CRAZY season

Britt was so excited… and a little nervous because  everything about

  • Gayton Youth Mission Trip 2012

and all of a sudden it hit me. I was going to be shooting a wedding all day Friday, all day Saturday and then getting up at 9am on Sunday to head to the Eastern Shore for our annual Mission Trip with our youth group! So what did that mean for me on Thursday night? EVERYTHING for the trip needed to be done. Packing, laundry, charging batteries, clearing cards, cleaning out the car, pre blogging for 5 days! YIKES! I have to admit that pre-trip, I was a bit stressed and I wondered “Why do I do this to myself?! This is just CRAZY!”.  No one is going to be in a good mood with 2 hours of sleep and then having to drive 4 hours behind a charter bus!
