I love my daddy. So much. He is the most selfless, considerate man I know and he probably hates that I’m announcing that so boldly to so many people because he’s also quite humble. My whole entire family has been preparing for 10-10-10 but a lot of the huge tasks fell into Daddy’s lap…. and he never complained. Ever. You see, I decided that I wanted to get married at our home church where daddy has been the pastor since Michael and I were toddlers. It just makes sense for us! We love our home church and so when the ceremony location was decided, we also decided to have a tent reception in the field behind our home.
This sounded so easy and wonderful at first… and then the projects started adding up. Projects like…. “Lets build a patio”… “Lets extend the deck!”…. “Lets get rid of the pool and re-landscape the whole backyard”…. “Lets remodel the upstairs bathroom” …. “Lets repaint 75% of the house!”…..”Lets grow new, pretty grass!”…….. and all of these things have been done. I’m serious. The house has been made-over and it looks amazing. Everything looks amazing Daddy. I don’t understand how you can be so patient, so willing to work and so slow to get frustrated some days. I love you so much and I just want you to know that the tile in the newly-remodeled bathroon upstairs is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! (Daddy re-tiled the WHOLE bathroom by himself… and it’s beautiful!!!)Thank you so much daddy… I Love you!
** Ps. Emy and I get the credit for that CRAZY awesome mirror on the wall!!! **
Look at that awesome floor!!! And the bathroom is actually CLEAN right now!!! Amazing!
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!
