Downtown Staunton Engagement Session

  • Buddy + Jill | Engaged | Part II

full of so many of my close friends right now! Ali and Manny made their debut last week and Jill and Buddy are back on the blog this week! It’s wonderful! I love this time in our lives. Michael and I have SO many friends that are getting married and it’s exciting! We were sad when college ended and we moved on into this new phase of life but now that we’re here… I kinda like it! …. Actually, I LOVE it. Being married has made my life so much easier and I love feeling like I’m where I belong. As we watch our friends enter into marriage, we’re so happy for them because we know how awesome this life change is!! It’s wonderful!

Happy Valentines Day!

  • Love Languages

say that they don’t like Valentines day because they want their special someone to love them 365 days of the year… not just on February 14th! I totally understand this…. but also disagree with it at the same time. Maybe I disagree with it because I am loved 365 days of the year and Valentine’s day is just an extra special version of any normal day! My love language has always been “gifts”. If you have never heard of the ” 5 Love Languages” before, you should read about them HERE!  I used to think that this was such a silly method of characterizing people and the way they like to be loved…. but it’s actually very accurate. I feel most loved when I receive gifts.
