  Yes, I cheated yesterday and posted a personal post instead of the typical Coffee Talk Monday. 😉 But I’m making up for it today!!! This is the week of personal posts. Yesterday was all about how Alex and I met and the rest of the week will entail two other special personal posts involving […]

I just got back to Virginia lateeeeeee Saturday night, and I’m only here until Friday, but it has already been an eventful time!!! 🙂 This past week was a busy one between wedding planning, wood-working projects, business, traveling, and networking in both VA and FL! There’s a lot to do while I’m visiting VA for the […]

I promise I’m not trying to turn my blog into a once a week routine!! 😉 Even though my blog shows differently. Since driving down to Florida on Wednesday, I’ve been busy with album designs, emails, networking … and house projects! 😉 You’ll see what Alex and I have been up to in this post […]

Where did this past week go?!?!!? I didn’t get quite as much business work as I wanted to get done, but I was so fortunate to spend as much quality time with my grandmother as I did while she was in town. <3 As you’ll see, the occasion was special because she wanted to be […]

Okay, I promise that “Coffee Talk Mondays” will not become “Coffee Talk Tuesdays” … 😉 After taking the Holiday yesterday to catch up with meetings, family, and photograph one of my favorite couples, I had to take a day away from my computer. So today will be catch up day with yesterday’s blog post and […]

AH! I’m so excited to go down to Florida on Friday to […]

WOW. It’s December!!! Where has the year gone?! I don’t have ANY editing on my plate, and I’m not sure what I’m going to do with myself!!!! Just kidding… I have a lot of other side work to do like album designs, client Christmas gifts, packaging, and monthly duties. But this workload doesn’t compare to the […]

It’s just about December … WHAT? What happened to the 2018 year?! Now that business is starting to slow down for the winter season, I am looking forward to reflecting on the past months of business and personal life to bring myself back to a state of humility. Don’t get me wrong, I try not […]

This photo above takes me back to Paris almost a year ago… Crazy how time has flown by since that trip! I’ll never forget how dang cold it was! HA! But Krysta and I were brave souls. 😉 I cannot wait to travel back but in warmer temps! Speaking of colder weather, can you believe […]
