“Thank you Mommy...this was the best birthday ever!” 🌿 ugh I love this kid and his little magical heart!!! Spent the weekend celebrating year No. 8 🧡 Highlights in my stories!

Hey hey!!! Friday could not have come soon enough this week!! It’s been madness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I came back to my car not starting, full days of shooting, events, meetings, galleries, and of course mom & wife life, while squeezing the mechanics in between! One would think I’d be crashing on the floor...but ain’t nobody got time for that! Lol
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But here’s the blessing 🙌🏽 I have a car (that is now running!)! I have a job! I have THE BEST clients on the planet. (Just peep the little ray of sunshine pictured here ☀️) Plus this weekend I get to celebrate My sweet Alijah’s birthday!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So for today...a massage is in order and then of course pizza! ♥️

Every ring has a beautiful story but this one in particular may very well be one of my favorites.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Exactly one month ago today, this ring made it over 500 miles into the Amazon to become a sweet symbol of promise between two best friends.🍂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just as their proposal was pretty epic it deserved an epic engagement session!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This past weekend in Chattanooga was a beautiful whirlwind with so many stories, tears, laughs and all the love!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Get ready...So many teasers to share!

So excited to see these faces and so many more as we start our sessions today in Tennessee!! ♥️

:: Life is made up of small moments like this :: 🌿

Friends who slay together stay together 🌿
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you ever wondered what should be the bridesmaid prerequisites, this group right here is the definition. These ladies were like sunshine in a bottle!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You felt a warmth immediately as you walked in and they celebrated and took care of her throughout every moment of her day!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the kinda squad you keep. Laugh hard + Love hard 🧡 #collectmoments

This weekend was madness in all the best ways and I got to end it with this sweetness!! They drove down from Ft Myers to dance in the sun with me!! Love this family! 🌿

So random story. My husband doesn’t drink coffee (gasp!)! He actually hates it. I, on the other hand, well I’m holding a mug and talk about it all the time, so yeah!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well anyway! I always used to find the cutest “his and her” mugs and secretly would get a little sad inside. Lol I’ve always had this image of going on the patio at every stage of life. Talking about the kids, laughing about their latest antics and just drinking coffee with my best friend. I mean, yes I know it could be anything else but there’s something about the coffee that just made it all warm and fuzzy and sentimental for me. 🤷🏽‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well finally one day, I gave in & just bought the set for our anniversary. I got us some @krispykreme doughnuts, poured myself a cup and filled his with milk. And voila- cue that smile you see on my face.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lol! Point is...you can always hold on to YOUR image and expectations and be frustrated or sad or even build walls on what you think life or your situation should look like...OR you can choose to change your outlook. Stop focusing on the small things that may be keeping you from being where you want to be, change the things you can and choose joy in and despite your circumstance in the meantime! 🖤
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just a little Friday reminder to grab your cup of whatever fills YOU with JOY today!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Add in someone who makes you laugh until your cheeks hurt and you’ve got a winning combo 🖤 #imwinning #collectmoments #fridayintroductions #risingtidesociety ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
