It’s not the first country you necessarily think of when you think of Honeymoon destinations. To be completely honest, I was more excited about GREECE and VENICE and the all inclusive restaurants on the CRUISE SHIP! I wasn’t excited about Turkey. Sure, it’s fun to say that we’ve been there but I wasn’t expecting to be “wowed”. Well, once again, my expectations were far exceeded! Turkey is GORGEOUS!! Oh my goodness! Think Mediterranean, warm, sunny, mountains, teal water and blue skies. WE LOVE TURKEY! We had an awesome tour guide that showed us around Ancient Ephesus and it blew our minds! The detail …
that is still in the stone of that city is amazing! ….. Like more amazing than Ancient GREECE! Yes, I said it. Michael and I were more impressed with Ephesus than any other stop on our cruise. The coolest part about Ephesus is that it is STILL an active archeological dig. They are still uncovering this ancient city. Only 25% of the city has been exposed. It’s really incredible to walk through the main street of Ephesus and realize that Paul wrote the book of “Ephesians” to the people who lived there! Michael and I read Ephesians before we got off of the ship that day and it really made us realize how awesome this place really was! So enjoy some of the shots and if you’re ever near Turkey… you MUST stop by for a visit! It’s BEAUTIFUL!
We ended the day with a tour of a Turkish rug making tour. It sounds incredibly boring but it wasn’t at all! Turkey is FAMOUS for their rugs and it was so neat to see how much goes into making these things!
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!

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!
