are families that go to the same place for vacation year after year. It could be the beach, or a lakehouse or even a cabin in the mountains. Well the James family has never been one of those families and I love that about us! We grew up traveling for vacations in our RV… whatever that was at the time. We’ve camped in just about EVERY type of camper there is. At one time or another, Daddy has owned a tent, a pop-up camper, a few Class C campers, a few Class A campers, a converted charter bus and a travel trailer or two. The only thing we haven’t camped in is a 5th wheel! Have I lost any of you with all of this RV talk? It’s really a different world of vacationing!
We weren’t a “Hotel” family growing up and even though Michael and I LOVE a nice resort, I still appreciate our trips in the family motorhome! This vacation was a little different than most vacations. Instead of camping in a campground, we just used the motorhome for traveling purposes and then stayed in a condo that belongs to our cousin’s family! They were so sweet to let us stay there for the week!! We loved it!!
So Michael and I, Momma and Daddy, Emily and Joe, Corey and Madison and the two dogs, Lucky and Bokeh ALL fit into the motorhome and DROVE to Florida! That’s right, 17 hours on the road together and we still love each other!! That’s a miracle!! For those of you that have never experienced what traveling is like in a motorhome, I took some pictures to show you! So this is the whole gang… minus me of course!
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!
