Last weekend I flew out to Nashville to shoot the wedding of Mary and Ben. Such a great and amazing couple. Their wedding happened to fall on a rather cold and stormy weekend but that didn't interfere with the day filled of nothing but romance. The day of the wedding had no rain and we were blessed with that because the night before was a torrential down pour. Mary looked gorgeous in her dress and was so relaxed. She was probably the most laid back bride I've ever had to shoot. It makes things so easy when the bride says, "just do your thing." Love it!! Ben wasn't looking so bad himself and the smile on his face as she walked down the isle..priceless. It's why I love what I do, getting to capture the moments in life that truly matter. Congrats to both of you Mary and Ben and may the Lord bless you in the years ahead.

This past week my mom and I took the kids to Florida for a few days. We all needed it. So much has been going on and I feel like I was going crazy. The mental break was a huge relief in my hectic world. We did two water parks and a day at the Magic Kingdom. Florida is beginning to feel like a second home in all honesty. That's fine with me though, I love it there. The sun, sand and water are perfect. The kids enjoyed their time away from the house. Swimming is their favorite past time anyway so what's not to love, right? It's a long drive down there but so worth it. I was definitely not ready to come back. I could have spent another day at Typhoon Lagoon swimming with sharks and surfing in the 6ft waves.... so nice! But, here we are, back in our home and getting into the daily grind of everyday life. Life just isn't the same anymore. So much has changed and my view of it will never be what it was before... however, I'm grateful for all that I have.
