one of those days when I feel like I haven’t gotten anything on “my list” done but yet I got SO MUCH other stuff accomplished! This afternoon was full of light fixture hanging and filling frames with prints….home projects that I have been wanting to get done for weeks! The house had a mini makeover today and I love it! Thank you daddy and Corey for sharing your snow day with us and like always, helping us with our home improvement jobs that we can’t handle on our own! …. or the jobs that we shouldn’t handle on our own….can you imagine me trying to hang light fixtures?! ha! I love you both! The house looks wonderful because of you two! So while the blog
didn’t get updated and editing didn’t happen (this IS my day off….so it’s probably a good thing that I didn’t spend all day at the desk… Michael would have fussed at me)…. I feel accomplished today!
So our living room is ALMOST complete as far as decorating goes! We have one piece of furniture that is taking 15 weeks to come in (Come ON Crate and Barrel, really?! 15 WEEKS?!). Anyway, at the end of January we will have a round, leather ottoman in our tiny living room and that room will be done! I’m trying to be patient and WAIT to show the house on the blog until we are done decorating… but if you know me at all… you know that I’m NEVER completely done decorating! I love it and every time I enter Pier One….something classy catches my eye and I leave with something decorative that I didn’t need. It’s a sickness… it is.
Another thing you may know about me is that I have an almost creepy obsession with teal and peacocks! Soooo…. of course we were going to incorporate both into our Christmas decor! Our Christmas tree is decorated with ribbon, pearls, and peacock balls that were used at our wedding! We filled in the rest of the tree with some classic silver ornaments and teal balls from Pier One and Crate and Barrel. So even though this is only a little peak of our home, it shows that we’re in the Christmas spirit!!!! Enjoy!
Don’t judge… ALL of those frames actually have REAL pictures in them now (Wendy, you’ll be proud!:). I’ll be sure to show the walls later on after the holidays!
Recognize that furniture piece?! Yup! It was at the front of the church for our wedding ceremony!And here’s the exterior all lit up at night!!! Yay Christmas!! If it wasn’t weird, I would leave wreaths and spotlights on the house ALL year!
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!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
