I genuinely love what I do, and feel so passionate to share the enthusiasm and joy of these celebrations with you!

Coffee Talk Mondays

I’m running around this morning after I tried to take Ollie into his neuter appointment. More about that in the “Espresso Moments.” :/ I have a lot to catch up with today (including my emails from Friday and over the weekend), so I’m going to enjoy playing catch up in my favorite coffee shop later. πŸ™‚ So for those who emailed me over my long weekend away, don’t fret! I’ll be in touch with you today. πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to restructuring my routine now that I’m back in VA, although, a part of me wants to plan the next adventure! πŸ˜‰ Anyways, I have to run off to my dentist appointment! Here’s what I’ve been up to this past week!!!

BARN DOOR

Did a little project in Alex’s Florida home last week!! Bought this door from Restore and installed trim and hardware to make it a sliding barn door in the master bedroom to the bathroom. LOVE THE RESULTS!!!!

HELLO, FORT LAUDERDALE!

Just days after returning from Alex’s Florida home, I took off in a plane to Fort Lauderdale to photograph one SWEET couple!!!! Even though it was only one night, it felt as thoughΒ I had been there for four days because of how relaxing it was!!!

THE BITTER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK

CHANGE OF PLANS…

Welp! I tried taking Ollie in this morning to be neutered and I was turned away after they couldn’t find one of his mangoods. So he’s rescheduled to go into surgery next Tuesday where they have to do a little exploring… POOR GUY!!!!!!! πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ What was supposed to be an easy procedure is now going to be something a little tedious and costly. I’m glad I’m scheduled to be home for the month so I can take care of him and play nurse for at least a week after the surgery is done.
