Hey heyyy out there! So Christmas is just around the corner (WAHOO!) and there’s going to be a lot of celebrating going on… and maybe a little mayhem in the mix too. It really does seem to be one of the craziest times of year, we’re just going non-stop! But every now and then I need a good kick in the pants… a reminder to re-prioritize what and who is at the top of my list. I get so consumed with the trivial little things and just being busy that I find myself missing some of the sweetest little moments sprinkled in between. And while Christmas brings a lot of different emotions to the table for different folks, it makes me feel really thankful for the family that I do have, no matter how crazy we all get. And I’m thankful for the family I’ve been adopted into through the body of Christ. And thankful for the little family that God is building right here in my own home. I should be thankful more often… there’s something so freeing in it! Focusing on the overflowing gifts right in front of you instead of the ones you think you’re lacking… man. God is good! All the time.
So here are some sweet little moments between Melinda + Chris – the coolest new couple on the block! Melinda and I were in church youth group together back in late middle school/high school (aka my PRIME! – pfffft!- ). Let’s just say… we were pretty awesome. 😉 She’s always been so laid back and easy to talk to, and she’s only gotten cooler! I’m SO so excited to not only be reunited, but to get to photograph her wedding too?!? WOWZA. We wandered through Piedmont Park on an amazingly pretty fall evening and took in the sights (well, they mostly just took in each other… lovebirds. Typical. 😉 )Melinda + Chris are so sweet on each other… it’s super precious. They’ve got an easy way about them when they’re together, they are each other’s comfort zone… it’s really endearing. And Melinda brought her own hair and make-up squad (her little sis) who ROCKED it! I mean, check this girl out!! (ROWR!) So now, while you’re prepping for the holiday season, take a beat and scroll through these super lovey-dovey photos, grab the one you love the most and get in on snugglefest 2014 – you’re running out of time, so better get to it!! These are the little moments that matter the most anyway, so make them count! Melinda+Chris… take it away!
Can’t wait to celebrate the big day with these two cool cats in 2015! Bring on the wedding magic!!
Merry Christmas to you guys… Until next time!
