Let's be honest... I've had "do a personal journal blog post" on my to-do list for abooouuutt..... 3-4 weeks now?
I know it's long overdue. That's how everything feels in my life right now to be very honest... long overdue.
These days it's all too easy to become overwhelmed with life (is it just me, or does it feel like I'm always saying this?) I'm thankful for every second of it though, because I know that every single part of every day is shaping me and growing me. I'm learning life.
The other day we actually didn't have a Saturday wedding (our wedding was on Sunday that weekend instead) and we took an impromptu trip to the county fair. I had never been to the fair, and it has been on my "bucket list" (believe it or not though, I don't officially have a real "bucket list" even though I do love lists, but you know what I mean) to ride the ferris wheel at the fair. (I had never been to a fair, and I had never been on a ferris wheel!) and so it was nice to check that off my list of things I want to do in life.
What's new these days? Welllll.... we've been working on house stuff here and there, but also recently we brought Miss Kitty inside and we're seeing if she will be happy to live inside with us and with Frederic. After a couple of weeks I think she has finally decided to be friends with our other cat, Frederic (whom we affectionally call "Freddie") and so that is a huge relief. Cats! Can't live with em' can't live without em' :) haha
We also recently participated in the Hickory Bridal Show at Moretz Mills, which was amazing. We had the best time meeting so many awesome people and networking and hanging out with some pretty incredible wedding pros. I have to say that when I look back to when I first started this photography business, and then also when we REALLY took a leap of faith by rebranding our business and going full time with it, and when I look at the person I was, the thoughts that went through my head at the time...the doubts... the "I can'ts".... I look back at a person who was crippled by so many limitations she had placed on herself, from so many lies she believed (about herself, about what God could do if I would just let Him) and in all honesty it still amazes me at how God has used photography to grow me and to encourage me to push through in order to succeed and move past all of those limitations and fears and doubts.
Anyway, I hope to do better about documenting life in these blogs, and also posting more from recent weddings. Thank you guys for being patient with us! It has been somewhat relaxing sitting with my laptop on the front porch, typing this up, and yet still productive (something I can check off my list that I've been meaning to do) but I think I'll get more into the habit again soon as I keep reminding myself to do it.
Until next time!
