Last week at this time, I was on the way home from New York City with my daddy! We had gone up to New Jersey for a banquet where my dad was given an award for his journalism in a magazine, & he surprised me by taking me into the City on Tuesday! He had texted me the week before saying “Don’t forget our trip to NJ next week!” followed by “Pack warm… we’re going to NYC Tuesday!!!” which of cooouuurse I couldn’t be more excited about!
Ohhh, this session! I shared the best part on Facebook last week, but I had to blog their whole session!
We had the honor of shooting Paul & Cheyenne’s wedding last October, & I was so so (so so so!) excited when Cheyenne email me a couple of weeks ago saying she was PREGNANT! What made that email even better was that she hadn’t told Paul yet, & wanted to tell him during a photo session! AH!
It was a baaaaad week apparently! BAH! The week before last, I had a killer weight loss week – mostly due to how sick I was, I’m pretty sure. I lost four pounds, which is a lot for me at one time! Unfortunately, I found two of those pounds this past week!!
When I shared my weigh in on Instagram last night, I wrote that I almost didn’t post about it this week, because I feel like a one pound loss is almost laughable. Not for everyone – but for me! I knew that I didn’t work hard last week, & I knew that I wasn’t going to be thrilled with the number on the scale. But I started this public journey for accountability, & if I’m not transparent in both the good weeks & the bad, there’s no point in doing this! So here I am!
This post is vulnerable & scary, but I feel like it’s necessary, too. I wrote on Instagram last night about my need for public accountability & desire to get healthy. I’m making this a blog series as well so that I never forget how hard I worked to reach my goals, big & small!
This is the second session we’ve done at Fort Monroe together, & I think I like this one even better than the last! If you’ve been around for awhile, you know that Andrew & Kayla are some of our favorite friends. We’ve enjoyed going through life with them, & are thankful to the Lord for bringing them our way!
Jordan & Jessica are having a destination wedding in the Outer Banks in October & we were SO honored when they chose us as their wedding photographers! When they made plans to head to Kitty Hawk to finalize some wedding details, it was conveniently on a weekend that we were free too, so we were able to schedule their engagements!
At 6:30 on Friday morning, my brother, Seth, called me to say that Stacey’s contractions were six minutes apart & they were headed to the hospital. By 7:00, he was calling me again to tell me they thought Bodie was going to be here SOON!
