Our First Holiday in the New House!

  • Thanksgiving 2013

around out kitchen table that was fully extended… all 13 of us! We sat and ate way too much home cooked food and it was delicious. The table was a little toasty because I had way to many decorative candles on display but it was beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Thanksgiving. This was our first Thanksgiving in our new home and both of our families came to us this year!! What a treat!! Not only did they come for dinner but my whole family spent the night last night! It was a James family sleepover and I loved it. We did Thanksgiving a day early so that Emily and Joe could drive to PA to see his family for their big celebration today.

  • Joe + Emy | Proposal

I’m going to go out on a limb today and say that today’s post is probably one of my FAVORITE blog posts of all time!! Besides my own wedding post, this is one of the most exciting posts to write!! You all saw a couple of weeks ago that my little sister got engaged!! She called me to tell me the news and I cried. Then, Michael and I drove to State College, PA a few days later to spend the day with the newly engaged couple! That was a surprise in and of itself!! Well…. Emy thought that was it. She got engaged, it was wonderful and perfect, we surprised her with a visit and that was it.

A Howard County Conservancy Engagement Shoot

  • Justin + Brooke | Engaged

at the Howard County Conservancy and it was 70 degrees in November. How did we get so lucky? I have no idea! As I’m writing this, I’m listening to school closures and winter weather warnings and I’m so thankful that we had such a beautiful day for Justin and Brooke’s engagement shoot! We met at the Conservancy and the location options were limitless. I should have known that this would be a fabulous location because Brooke is not only an English professor, she’s a photographer as well!
