HONEYMOON!!! … our dream honeymoon. When deciding on locations, Michael and I knew we didn’t want to go sit on a beach all day. He would get bored and I would get BURNT. Redheads and extended stays at the beach don’t mix well. We cruised to Italy in high school for a leadership trip and LOVED it…. so we decided to go back! Michael planned EVERYTHING. It has been so nice to just sit back and not worry about details. He is so good trip planning…so good that he pulled off a surprise. We stayed one night in Venice before boarding our cruise ship. This was supposed to be a cheap hotel, outside the city….
instead, we pulled up (when I say pulled up, I mean “floated” up….no cars in Venice!) to the Hilton. It was AMAZING. As we walked in, I grabbed Michael’s arm and said “Michael this isn’t our hotel, we’re at the wrong one!”…. and he very calmly assured me that “No, this is right….surprise!”. It was beautiful and this first picture….yea, that was the view from our hotel window….No. Big. Deal. We loved our time there. Venice was everything we thought it would be. From the little men in striped shirts offering $100 Gondola rides, to the crowded streets filled with quaint shops and cafes, Venice was what we expected. It was beautiful! So enjoy some images from our time there! And don’t get too used to seeing a ton of pictures….I can’t promise that we will be blogging every stop…..I AM on my honeymoon afterall and taking a break from the internet has been a huge blessing. However, Michael and I have some mommas back home that really love seeing everywhere we’ve been and so we’ll be posting some more this week!! Enjoy!!
View from our Hotel room in Venice! AH!
I wouldn’t mind being a wedding photographer in Italy…. I would NEVER run out of amazing locations!
Haha… Love this one. Venice can be a bit confusing to navigate through.
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!
