Monday Moments Of Me #225

I had the opportunity to go camping for a couple days recently up at Woods Canyon Lake area in Arizona. I had such a great time disconnecting and and enjoying nature. I now feel more grounded and peaceful :)

I hope to get away more often for camping trips . . .

Monday Moments Of Me #224

I love Dave & Busters. That is no secret and it ain't no lie. hahahaha 

While at the Tucson location recently, I fell in love with the bathroom. I mean, it made this whole have to wear a mask thing worth it! 

Such a fun and unique idea that just adds to the excitement I feel while at Dave & Busters.

Ashlye and Josh's Shenandoah Mill Wedding

Ashlye and Josh had a beautiful day! Yes, it was postponed due to Covid-19 but everything was worth the wait!!!
Shenandoah Mill was the perfect venue choice for these two. 
Check out their rings.....His is inscribed with "I love you" and hers is a statement piece for sure! Love them. 
The favors were thoughtful and I love the tags attached as well :) 
I am in LOVE with the wooden florals and the pop of color they added.
Nothing Bundt Cake never disappoints, it is so yummy no matter which flavor.
The reception was full of dancing and laughter and fun! So glad I was able to be a part of their best day!

Monday Moments Of Me #221

Happy June 1 of 2020!!!!!!!!!

I am feeling a breath of fresh air, An excitement, A burst of energy..... it almost feels like a new beginning! You with me?! Lets focus on the positives and finish 2020 strong :)

I still LOVE my PANDORA jewelry. I know I have not mentioned it in awhile but guaranteed at your wedding/event I will be wearing something PANDORA!!!

I still love the sound of the charms clinking together and how it takes me back into my grandma's home sitting in the rocking chair talking with her as I can see and hear her golden charms dangle and clink from her wrist. Some of my most favorite childhood memories never to be forgotten. Never take for granted your loved ones. Never Ever. Soak in every second :)

Monday Moments Of Me #220

May 2020

This year has been going pretty quickly BUT with everything practically at a halt since mid March due to the Corona/Covid-19 pandemic, quarantine life is sllooowwww. So many businesses have shut down or have had to change to be within the Covid-19 guidelines. Not all businesses will make it through this unfortunately. It has been so crazy witnessing everything going on from the way we have to grocery shop, not seeing family/friends, trying to find toilet paper haha, the sudden pause of income and no weddings to photograph.
I was doing well for about 3 weeks enjoying catching up on home projects, cooking, spending more time outdoors and binge watching tv shows and movies.... and now I am going nuts. No work, told to stay home and no sign of when to see that we are going back to normal. This has been really rough on the economy and everyone I know. Even the ones I know that are fortunate enough to still be working, this has been HARD!!!!!!!!!!

I am however grateful and blessed that I had savings, food storage for me and my fur-babies and have been able to slow down and brush up on cooking skills, learn new exercise routines, spend more time with my fur-babies and have more meaningful conversations via phone with friends/family. It has been a time to reflect and renew but now.....

Let's get back to the normal!
Please and Thank You.


I was impressed with myself for Easter Dinner :)

Smoked stuffed bell peppers. mmmm

A little yard work...hehe

This is how we chill. LOL

Monday Moments Of Me #219

At such a time in our lives that is stressful, disturbing, unknown, scary and all the other emotions and feels that go along with Corona Virus/Covid-19 I look back at one of the last weddings I did prior to the Quarantine.
This was the view! You guys!!! Amazing right?
So I am looking to the future with hope and gratefulness for so many things :)
Family, health, kindness, savings, support, my furbabies, love, a home gym and the supply of food and especially the toilet paper I had so I did not have to be a part of the insane craziness that took over most people. . .

Chelsey and Michael's Shenandoah Mill Wedding

I can not explain how refreshing it was to be in the presence of Michael and Chelsey. They have a love for life and for one another that is so joyful and so exciting that it makes me want to be around them more! Can we be real life friends?!
I am so grateful to have been a part of their special day at Shenandoah Mill.
Extra grateful that the last few weddings I was able to witness before quarantine were so amazing that I can not help but be hopeful, humbled and appreciative  :)
