…”Wedding Wednesday” has become a “Wedding Thursday”. Ugh. I JUST looked at the clock as it struck 12:02am….its’ officially Thursday. I missed the mark. I guess that’s what happens when you try to blog 4 days before your wedding…. you get a little side tracked and distracted by the number of lanterns you ordered and which table the extra program baskets are going to sit on.. etc,etc. I’m kinda getting to the point where I just want it to happen! I want my family to get to relax, I want my daddy to stop fixing things 24-7 and I’m ready to be married and CELEBRATE! Woohoo! 10-10-10 is almost here!!!! I can’t believe it!!!!!
So, as most of you faithful blog stalkers know, Michael and I have dated for 8 years (it’s 8 years EXACTLY on our wedding day!). We have not only dated for almost a decade, we have known each other since we were toddlers…. if you even count that as “knowing” each other! So Michael’s family has become my family and my family is very much his family. We have vacationed together since before we can remember and these trips mostly consisted of camping with my family and traveling to “Aunt Susan’s House” with his family. Aunt Susan and Uncle Ed will officially become my family on Sunday but gosh, …. I’ve felt like part of the family since I was a little girl! I love Michael’s family and I’m so thankful to have new aunts, uncles, cousins and grandma’s that are so loving and welcoming!
A couple of weekends ago, Aunt Susan surprised me with an amazing handmade gift that I LOVE! It was such a unique and creative idea, it definitely deserves a Wedding Wednesday blog post! Susan MADE me a custom monogrammed hanger for my wedding dress. Not only is the monogram the perfect shade of TEAL… she made sure to use our EXACT font from our wedding stationary! AMAZING! (You know I LOVE that “A”!) I was so excited when I opened it because I actually needed a pretty hanger for my dress! (Note to future brides….find a NICE hanger for your gown…you paid too much $$$ for it to be photographed while hanging on plastic!:) So even though this Wedding Wednesday is late and somewhat rushed, I hope you enjoyed seeing the last little peak from our wedding! I cannot WAIT to show you all of the details after the honeymoon….lets just say, I have my Wedding Wednesday’s covered for a WHILE!
Aunt Susan, I absolutely LOVE my gift! Thank you so much for thinking of me!! It’s beautiful!!
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
Another month. I had forgotten just how fast it goes when they are this tiny. One minute they are in 0-3 month clothes and the next you’re unpacking 6month options!
How is it MARCH already in 2021?! This year is flying by and we’re getting closer and closer to the beginning of wedding season! At least we are here in Virginia! It’s my honor to get to introduce you to some of our KJ Students who are doing the hard work of educating themselves and growing their businesses! My hope is that their stories and advice will be an encouragement to anyone wanting to grow and feel confident before wedding season picks up!
Welcome to a brand new installment of KJ Student Spotlight!! It’s always a good day on the blog when we get to introduce you to some of our students and share their wins and advice!!! These three students have taken courses, watched Youtube episodes, are KJ All Access members, use our templates and have invested in themselves time and time again in order to grow their businesses! They deserve this recognition!!!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
