last week I blogged about moving…a week ago we closed on our old house. we are moved out and officially moved in with my mom. we are SO very grateful that we have this option of “in the mean time” being able to live with my mom, save up some money, and house hunt for our dream home! “We’re never moving again!” that’s what we’ve both been saying. It is certainly a process and not one we want to have to do a lot in the forseeable future. But it’s an exciting time. I’ve never looked for my very own house. It’s a big step…a new season, with a new house, and new changes and challenges ahead.
During this season I’ll also turn 30. Seems appropriate for all these big adult decisions I’m about to make about a house to turn 30 so my age sounds just as adult as these decisions. Luckily I have sweet friends who are turning 30 along with me. God has blessed me with these 4 friends for the majority of my life and I am grateful for their love, wisdom, patience, and encouragement. We’ve cried together, struggled together, grieved together, lived together, traveled together, danced together, and laughed through it all together. As each one of us turns 30 and we look ahead to all that God has in store for each of us, I’m grateful we are facing the future together.
Speaking of being together…we are going to attempt to let these 2 live together this summer…
they’ve already bonded over being lazy and laying in the sun. I think they are off to a good start!
I am blessed with the cutest clients…no matter the age. And these girls are no different…seriously, you ladies are beautiful. and not only pretty, but SMART. each of these ladies just graduated from Belmont with a nursing degree and on their way to becoming RN’s. Smart AND cute…come on fellas
In the last few years more and more of my friends are nurses so I feel like I have full understanding of what it takes to get this degree. let me just tell you…it takes A LOT. Anatomy being the first hurdle to jump through, then all the memorizing for pharmocology…and so much more. They’ve put in hours of clinicals, numerous patients, tests, exams AND SO MUCH STUDYING. I’ll admit it, my degree did not take near as much work. Through all the stress, studying, and patient charts these four ladies became friends and have stuck together no matter what. As a way to celebrate their graduation they wanted to have a little photo shoot…the 4 of them…AND their Moms! so sweet!
Thinking back on some tough times in my life, I know I couldn’t have made it through without my mom. I’m sure these ladies are just as grateful to each of their moms for giving hugs, encouraging phone calls, home cooked meals to celebrate grades, and everything in between! Such a sweet way to say thanks to their mothers!
I loved seeing each of these girls have fun together AND having fun with their moms…too cute!
I know each of these girls are grateful for the friends and family that helped get them through college and will support them through life. I treasure my dear group of friends and couldn’t do life without them. These 4 were so much fun to be around and I hope their friendships continue to bless them each year forward!
way to go Jonelle, Jennalynn, Emily, and Victoria! I loved capturing you lovely ladies and your sweet friendship! Your mommas deserve to be very proud of each of you!
It’s official. We are moved. WOAH! After having our house on the market for 11 months it seems like this day wouldn’t ever really come, to be honest. We would just always have a clean house and always be ready to grab the dog and leave whenever someone wanted to come look at it. But…we are officially moving on. Last night was our last night in this cute house.
I loved this house…Josh loved it even more. He owned the house before we met and it was one of the things that I loved about him. It is such a cute house…lots of charm, character, and so many stories. It is about 80 years old so it’s know it’s seen some good times.
This past weekend was the official “move.” We rented a PODS and prayed that it would all fit. I had this feeling from the beginning it wouldn’t. Which was fine. We had an order of importance for the the major items (couch, washer, dryer, dresser, etc) and we both knew in the end, some boxes would be stored in a parent’s basement. WE WERE BOTH WRONG! Turns out, you CAN fit everything you own in to a box. strange…but possible.
We are both very excited about what the future holds for us…and where our home will be. stay tuned…it should be a fun summer of house hunting!
I can not believe how much she has grown…and that she continues to get cuter and cuter each time. Remember her adorable face when she was born? and then again at 6 months? can’t get enough. and here she is…all walking and almost 1 YEAR OLD!
I had such a fun morning with Rachel and Virginia! The weather was beautiful and sweet little virginia was just happy and full of cuteness! Her blue and yellow dress was perfect for this field of yellow flowers!
now for a little wardrobe change…nothing says girl like flowery pink dress! LOVED it!
is she not the cutest little baby model with that pose?!
can you tell that I have just a few favorites from this session?!
this one below I think would just look beautiful blow up big on her wall in the nursery. I just love the location and all the green and her sweet face and dress!
wardrobe change again to finish out the session! gotta have some tutu pictures, duh!
hello, this is cuteness calling, with side of baby model fierceness…
