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.

August 21-25 Weekend Recap

This weekend was a whirlwind, but it was so much fun! Our weekend recap:

Even though last Thursday isn’t technically the weekend, I had to include it in my post because WE BOUGHT A CAR!! FINALLY!!! This is our new Volkswagen Golf! We are loving the blue color, the gas mileage, and smooth ride. Such a step-up from our Toyota Corolla! Yay!

The process was very stressful, but I am so thankful to have such a wonderful, intelligent, patient husband who was able to handle everything so well. This is the first car either of us has purchased and he did such a great job of researching and understanding not only the car-buying process, but also car information from the basic car specs to more technical and mechanical aspects of how the car works. Seriously, my husband is awesome and I’m so thankful to be doing life with him.

Saturday was a wonderful day for me because I was honored to throw a bridal shower for one of my closest friends! Being a wedding photographer and a woman in her mid-20s, I’ve seen a lot of weddings and bridal showers, so I was able to pull from all of those experiences and plan this shower in about 3 weeks! I wanted everything to be perfect for Michele because this was her only bridal shower and I wanted it to be a ton of fun for her and her girl friends! I had so much fun planning everything and I can’t wait to share more pictures later this week!

The rest of our weekend was spent with friends and family! We had a cookout Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and also grilled out with Matt’s parents Sunday while we were visiting to return their car.

This weekend was a ton of fun, but I can hardly wait for this coming weekend! Michele is getting married and I’m double dutying matron of honor and photographer! This is also my first “double-header” wedding weekend where I will also be second shooting on Sunday! It should be interesting, but I’ll tell you all about it in my next weekend recap!

Have a wonderful week!
