Ashley’s Bridals


Ashley and Justin were married this weekend at Spirit Ranch, it was a gorgeous ceremony. I have been waiting anxiously to post Ashley’s bridals that turned out beautiful and the wedding images will be up soon. Justin and I have been friends since college and I am very thankful they thought of me to photograph their wedding as well as Ashley’s bridals.

Hire B&J Lawns!

I just wanted to let all of my blog readers know about some awesome guys that are trying to put themselves through college. They own B&J Lawns and do a great job. They are professional, polite and ready to work hard.

If you need someone to mow your lawn, weed eat or anything else, please, call these guys first. I think that we need to help support those that are trying their hardest and working to achieve what they want.

They will come to your house and quite your lawn and have all of the work done in a hurry!

They offer:
Free Estimates
Leaf and trash clean up
Mowing and edging
Year round service

I can’t believe that today marks three years of marriage for us. There are so many things that I did not recognize as gifts until now. The first being all of the friends and family that supported us, loved us, showered us with gifts and parties and help during the wedding time.

I never recognized what a wonderful man I was about to marry. I knew you loved me, I knew that would not change, but I don’t think that I had a handle on how much. You let me quit my job to pursue my business. You were the sole person that supported me and my dreams. You lifted me up when I was ready to quit, pushed me when I was tired, and cheered for me as my dreams grew into a reality. You still do. I know that will never change. I also know I would not be where I am without you and your courage that poured into my soul.

You help me keep my focus of what is important. God, then family, then careers, then possessions. I am so glad that I married a man with these values, and no one could have a stronger set than you.

You provide for me better than I could have ever asked for. You work hard, earn an honest wage and for what? For our family and those family members that we do not have yet.

I don’t know how someone can have an inherent gift of fatherhood, but you know just what to do. Your protection of and love for Georgia is something that I have only seen from my Dad. I can’t wait to spend the next years with you molding her into a person that we will be proud to watch and give to the world.

I don’t know that I say it often enough and I don’t even know what I would convey to let you know how much I love you, admire you, trust in you, and live for you. Thank you for a wonderful three years of marriage. Love is not a strong enough word, but nevertheless, I love you more than you could ever image.

I’m Still Here; Somewhere…

So I have been a little worse than bad at posting lately.  I can’t help it.  I have good intentions; however, the time escapes me.  If I could only phone in my blog post from the car while driving to or from the sitter’s house or while I am in line and the bank, I know I would do alot better.  That is why I love twitter.  It just takes a second, and now that I am out of circa 1998 and actually have data on my phone, it is really easy to do while waiting in one of the many lines that slowly eat away at our lives.  

I try to stay up on things and I count myself as one of the technologically advanced, however, I think that I might also have an old soul.  If you asked Katie, the marketing director at Savant, I am sure that she would agree as she does not have the same taste as I do in “generationally eclectic music.”  Last weekend, my bestie, my husband and my Georgia June went camping.  Roaring Springs is not known for their exceptional cell phone towers, and within a few hours of searching for a signal, my phone was dead.  This death put me in heaven.  Sometimes, don’t you wish that we could stop telling everyone every move we make, letting them see every picture in our lives, our crying our soul out to a keyboard with the twinkle of a hope that someone likes you enough to bookmark your blog, much less read your post?  No calendar, no phone, no problem.  Just me, my favorite people and a cooler full of ice and beverages that put a smile on our face.
Wow, it was nice to be away from technology. 
I just thought that in my one free minute before bed, I would let my feelings escape to my blog.  More tweeting coming soon, facebook pictures to be posted shortly.  Ahhh, technology.  It is a love/hate relationship.
