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.

Dec 12-15 Weekend Recap

This is probably a new record for me with these weekend recaps. I’ve never actually written it before Monday. I usually wake up Monday morning, make Matt’s lunch, eat breakfast, see Matt off to work, and then sit down with a hot cup of tea and think about my weekend, Instagram photos, and any interesting stories or project happenings. But this weekend the recap is being completed Sunday night! Woot!

This weekend was full of friends, delicious food, and a whole lot of Christmas!

The ladies ministry has a Christmas Tea each year where we sit around lovely decorated tables sharing finger sandwiches, scones, crumpets, cookies, and a whole slew of other sweets. It’s a really fun time and just up my alley since we all know about my love for tea. My favorite was the lovely rose tea. I’ve never tasted a rose, but I would guess it tastes just like this tea. Sweet, but with a slight tang and velvety smooth all the way down. Ooh, how wonderful!

The above collage shows some iPhone photos I took as we were setting the tables. Everything looked so Christmas-y and delightful!

We also spent this weekend adding some finishing touches to our Christmas decor. I’ve got just a few more things to complete (just in time!) but I am loving everything thus far.

I thought I would give you guys a peek into some of the things I’ve been working on this year by, again, snapping some iPhone photos. Since getting a smartphone, I find it so much easier to just take a picture with it instead of pulling out my DSLR, importing the RAWs to Lightroom, editing, and then exporting as jpegs. So please bare with the iPhone pictures! Professional quality images of our condo will come next week just in time for Christmas!

I am so looking forward to this weekend because it is my last wedding of 2014! I know it’s going to be absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to share!

Have a wonderful week, friends. May your days be merry and bright.
