Well Why Not?

One of my all-time favorite questions to ask someone is this— if money weren’t in the equation, what would be your dream job? Or your dream scenario? And every single time someone answers, I always leave the conversation feeling two ways… feeling inspired, and then always wondering, “well why not?” Maybe you can place blame on my positivity or over-zealousness for life and all that it has to offer, but seriously, why not? What’s holding us back from taking at least one step in that direction? Why do we immediately label the things that make us come alive as dormant dreams that’ll probably never see the ground we walk on? Who knows, I could totally be listening to way too much Rachel Hollis or Lewis Howes…. but again, why not?

The most recent answers I’ve received when asking this question are as follows: open an interior design shop with a little bakery + coffee shop attached, start a non-profit on a ranch where people that have been labeled by society as criminals or addicts could come and learn life-skills as well as grow in knowledge of the one who loves them most: Jesus, and become a writer that has the task of documenting powerful stories, and even the job of crafting beautiful movies through authoring scripts and plot lines and all that jazz.

As I re-read the words above, my eyes dance over so much hope and creativity and I’m flat-out inspired. So much possibility lies in just a paragraph. I can almost smell the fresh crescents and feel the calloused hands of the recovering-hopeful-addict after a long day’s work on the ranch. They feel real to me— like a distant relative that I’ve heard of, just never met.

The Rossi Wedding

Sarah and Bobby had the most beautiful wedding day at the sweetest little venue— Vinewood Stables, located in Newnan, GA. It was everything sunny and golden, with stunningly quaint details laced inside + outside the house. Well… I will say, it was sunny and golden up until the very last second of the reception. There’s nothing like a fresh rain shower on a wedding day to bless a marriage!

I think one of my favorite things about this wedding day was how intimate it was. Every person was seen, known, and loved so much by both the bride and the groom. Sometimes it can seem that wedding days fly by in a whirl of time, but this wedding was different. Every second of the day was savored and covered in a heavenly peace. You can imagine that that alone made it an enjoyable day not only for the couple and their bridal party, but also everyone that attended as a guest. It really just felt like home. Sarah and Bobby, I pray that feeling of “home” follows the both of y’all everywhere you turn. May God bless your marriage in ways unimaginable. xx

The Carroll Family

There's nothing like a family photo session to ring in the fall season! Especially with the Carroll family-- long-time friends of mine. It’s always a gift to see Kady and Drew, and especially their new little addition to the family… Harper Grace! We decided that one of my favorite field areas at Kennesaw Mountain would be the perfect spot for their fall photo session. And what do yah know, it totally was! I love you Carroll clan, and love that I get to keep takin’ your picture!
