Coffee Talk Mondays

I don’t have a lot to share from this past week in this post below, but I’ve been out and about photographing sessions! šŸ™‚ Coronavirus cases are on the rise as Florida is now claimed to be the new epicenter of the pandemic, but I’m taking every precaution to socially distance myself from my couples/families. I’m excited to share some new work with you all as well as some other projects!! šŸ™‚

MOCHA MOMENTS
THE SWEETER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK

1
BEFORE ANOTHER POTENTIAL SHUT DOWN…

Well. Here in Florida, we are experiencing the “surge” we have been warned about for months. Our local hospitals are at a max which makes me wonder how much longer will our beaches remain open… You know what this means? I have to soak it up as much as possible!!!! We have been told that it won’t go backwards, but I’m not sure if they knew this was coming so we will see!!! I’m trying to stay hopeful that things will eventually move in a positive direction!

DRYWALL MESS!

Looking at the 30 drywall holes in our home from when we had new pipes installed was overwhelming. I’m typically the go-getter, but for this project, I’m not allowed to be involved (except the spackling!!) due to pregnancy cautions. So Alex decided to take on this project (before he got sick, poor guy!) and I let him roll with the enthusiasm! I knew it was a hefty task and he managed to get half of them repaired… But I guess it’s time to call in the pros to finish up the work behind the toilets and other tricky spots. Hopefully, we saved ourselves $1,000 by doing half of the holes!

KITCHEN MESSES

Nothing better than kitchen messes… Am I right? HAHA! What you see below is a busted mayo jar! Yikes!!! Ollie sure loved the missed spots I didn’t clean up! Haha! But you know what wasn’t messy? Cutting up a fresh watermelon like this!!! If you aren’t familiar with this strategy, you MUST try it because it makes cutting a watermelon a BREEZE! šŸ™‚

CURRENTLY PRAYING FOR MY 2020 COUPLES! <3

I’m constantly praying and thinking about my 2020 couples!!! So many of them, unfortunately, had to make the challenging decision to postpone to 2021, but I’m trying to stay hopeful that my remaining weddings are still able to celebrate this year!!! <3 <3 <3

Happy Monday, everyone!!
