About the Lifestyle Blog

My day job is a wedding photographer, but my life consists of so much more than weddings. Here on my lifestyle blog, you’ll learn a lot more about me personally away from the camera. I love Jesus, being a wife, crafting, cooking, growing things, and so much more. I’ll document my heart here and I’m glad you’re along for the ride.

With less than 2 weeks until our due date, this last post of our journey to parenthood series couldn’t be more fitting. Pregnancy for me has looked a little different than a lot of women. In Part 1, I talked about how motherhood just wasn’t something I wanted for a long, long time. And because…

August 20, 2008 – That First Day

Her Heart is Glad is my personal blog that stems from my college days. I updated that blog pretty regularly for 4 years and even a little post college and in my early newlywed days. I love putting my fingers to the keys and just typing about personal topics. I’m not able to do that as…

Journey to Parenthood – Part 2

Part 1 of this series of our journey to parenthood was all about my heart and lack of desire for motherhood, but also how that changed after a whole lot of prayer and petition to the Lord. This second part is completely different! As the Lord changed my heart to desire to be a mom…

Journey to Parenthood – Part 1

It’s been a few months since we made our big life update announcement about Baby Johnson’s arrival. It seems like 2018 has been flying by, but also slowing down as September approaches (and as my belly grows). I mentioned in that previous post that I wanted to blog a little bit about our “journey to…

My 28th Birthday

Today I turn 28. !!?!??! Twenty-eight has always seemed so old to me. You are officially closer to 30 than 25 when rounding and you’ve been out of high school for 10 YEARS. Say what?! That blows my mind. I still feel 17 on the inside, and I am always wondering how in the world…

Life Update: House Progress 2

It’s been a few months since I last updated everyone on our house progress. In my last post in September, we had just completed a week of renovation camp with Matt’s parents and uncle. They helped us do so many things; the majority of which was removing walls and installing two beams. Needless to say,…
