Friday Phone Dump

“Most people could get angry at a grapefruit when their fists are clinched.  Something about the hardwiring that God gave each of us links the position of our bodies and position of our hearts […] Palms up means you are strong enough to be vulnerable, even with your enemies.  Even when you have been tremendously wronged.  Jesus was palms up, to the end.”

1-4) Snapshots from my Thursday evening yoga class last week!  Look at that first photo, down in the bottom left corner under that tree.  Do you see the guy PROPOSING TO HIS GIRLFRIEND?!  Haha, we were unloading the mats and such from the car when I saw this happening and I whipped out my phone!  I later went up and took a photo for them and they were just so happy :) I love love

06242016 phone dump3

5) We had a yoga practice in the Myriad Gardens as part of Sarah’s wedding weekend on Friday, and it was so so lovely and so SO hot.  I know it’s gross, but I truly haven’t sweat that much since marching band in high school.  This was my view during savasana (final resting pose) though, so that made up for it!  Also, it was all for Sarah, so I’d do it over again in a heartbeat!

6) Confession: I 100% cheated with this photo as it is definitely from a DSLR camera and not my phone….and I have no shame.  I don’t like how I look in the phone version of it, so you get to see this one instead.  Brian and I got to take some photos at Sarah and Charlie’s “pre-ception” on Friday night!  It was in Charlie’s backyard (which is gorgeous) and everyone there was so happy to be celebrating such an amazing couple.  These are the types of events I looooooove attending.

7-8)  Here’s Kourtni and I at Sarah and Charlie’s actual wedding haha–such a beautiful experience!

06242016 phone dump5

9-10) Part of our Father’s Day schedule included enjoying the pool at Colin’s dad and stepmom’s house!  Also, I found some of my favorite beer from New Belgium (which we got to tour a couple of years ago) while in Texas, so that’s been lovely to enjoy.


11) Hahahahaha I love this photo so much!  We got to FaceTime with our lovely friends, Tom and Ro (who we met in England) and they grabbed this screenshot of us during our chat.  Sidenote: Tom and Ro are coming here in September and I can’t even wait I’m so excited!

06242016 phone dump6

12) Easily my favorite little space in our home right now

13) I love this willow tree in our neighborhood park!

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

14) Backyard yoga practice is some of my favorite yoga practice :)


15) *sigh* Junction will be taking a break for July and August and it makes me pretty sad!  I stopped by there for a coffee on Wednesday morning since I knew it may be one of my last chances.  I guess this gives me yet another reason to look forward to September though!

06242016 phone dump7

16) Heyyyyyy I’ll be putting some clothes and other things up for sale on Instagram sometime soon, so stay tuned there!

17) Pizza and beer my way is still pretty hippie–gluten free pizza (yes, I know the beer has gluten…it’s fine) crust with organic olive oil, garlic salt, garden tomatoes, almond “cheese,” broccoli, zucchini, fresh corn, garden jalepeños, uncured pepperoni, ham, and blackberries.  On a related note, I recently tried Kombucha and I’m so hooked.  I’ve slowly been moving down the hippie spectrum for the past 8 years or so and mostly I don’t hate it.  By the end of my life I’ll probably be vegan living in a solar powered self-sustaining hut in the desert somewhere making my own clothing with dreads in my hair….or maybe not.  We’ll see.

18-19) Cuppies (insert heart-eyed emoji here) is just lovely!  I got to listen in on a webinar through Romance and Adventure yesterday that was good for my soul.  It was all about marriage and, well, romance and adventure.  I think they have it available to listen to if you’re interested!

This weekend I’m shooting a wedding and hanging out with my people.  I hope your weekend is life-giving and lovely, friend.

Styled Bridals: Turquoise & Cream

It’s time for the final styled bridal installment from my New Mexico trip last Autumn!  You’ll see more of the little shoots we did throughout the rest of this year, but today I wanted to show you the most “Summer-y” of the bridal looks that we shot.

This location just North of Santa Fe is so stunning, and as you can see, so is Kourtni!

“The wound is where the light shines through

The wound is where the light shines through
The wound is where the light finds you
Your scars shine like dark stars
Yeah, the wound is where the light shines through
It’s where the light shines through”

1) That’s my friend, Sarah, up there–she’s cooler than me and she’s super good at yoga.  You should definitely go to one of her classes!  She came to my outdoor Holy Yoga class at Lake Hefner last week, and it was awesome!  I’m so excited to start that back up for the Summer.

2-4) *sigh* I’ve had a serious case of California dreaming lately..and going to In-N-Out in Dallas DID NOT HELP.  They even have palm trees in front of the restaurant.  Whatever.  Anyway, as you can see I resided to closing my eyes and pretending I was in CA :)

This is how we began our trip to Austin last weekend!  I went with 6 girls from my lifegroup, and we had a blast!  You know what, though?  I am really thankful for air conditioning.  God bless air conditioning, man.

06172016 phone dump2

5-7) Snapshots from our first dinner there, at the always-delicious La Condesa!  It’s such a lovely little space, I wish I could live there.  Also, when you eat dinner outside in Austin, you’re going to want a cold sangria or a watermelon martini…Haylee and I would know.

06172016 phone dump3

8) I was so glad Kourtni and I got to see our friend, Holly while we were there!  I met Holly (through Kourt) last year when I went to Austin, so it was lovely to see her again this time around.  Come to OKC, Holly!

9) Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so Colin sent me this photo to tell me that my women’s lifegroup ladies sent me these gorgeous flowers and a NEW CAMERA BAG. WHAT  E V E N?!  I’m sorry, I just don’t understand where all of these kind and wonderful people around me came from.  I did a photo shoot for them, and they overheard me say I needed a new camera bag since mine was too small.  So they called Brian and conspired amongst themselves to find this beauty.  I’m speechless, just #blessed haha

06172016 phone dump4

10) A detail of our lovely AirBnb because #AirBnbForTheWin

11) My friend, Steph, and I found the grocery store we would shop at if we lived in Austin.  They had great food options, but let’s be real, I’m here for the succulents + cacti.

06172016 phone dump5

12-14) I don’t know if you really went to Austin if you didn’t stop at Jo’s Coffee.  Really.  In other news, this was my 3rd trip to Austin and my 1st time to take a photo by this graffiti, so maybe it was actually my first real trip??

06172016 phone dump6

15-17)  We loved walking around all the shops on South Congress–especially since we found pizza blankets, Anime figurines, chocolate frogs, and A STUFFED BB-8!  Haha, we all have a little nerd in us.

06172016 phone dump7

18-20) Kerbey Lane has some of my favorite breakfast food ever.  You’re basically in the running if you have bottomless coffee and potatoes on the menu :)

06172016 phone dump8

21-23) More walking around SoCo!  Haylee got new sunglasses and I got some new rings (which you can’t see in the photo) at a little open market.  We were supposed to be going SUPing during this point in our trip, but the river (and Barton Springs) was closed due to flooding.  We were pretty sad, but we still managed to have a great time.  Plus we stayed right by a public pool, so it was ok :)

24) Home Slice = y u m m y

25) Chi’Lantro = e v e n  b e t t e r

06172016 phone dump10

26-27) I’m so glad Kourtni introduced us to this sweet shop, 7th Flag Coffee!  It was such a lovely space, and I really appreciated their emphasis on community and the way coffee can bring people together :) How cute are their “coffee?” cards?

06172016 phone dump11

28-29)  We went up to Mt Bonnell to get a great view of the sunset–more pics to come, but here are some selfies we took at the top!

06172016 phone dump12

30-31)  Elizabeth St Cafe is a place I was really excited to return to on this trip!  They have both French and Vietnamese food and it is all delicious.  It’s all so pretty that each of us had our phones out to take photos (#millennials , right?) Also, this is neither French nor Vietnamese, but when I took a bite of my chocolate croissant and sipped my espresso I was instantly transported back to Italy.  And now I wish I was in Italy…

06172016 phone dump13

32-33) Our last moments walking around downtown Austin–so much love for the details!

06172016 phone dump14

34) Yoga studio vibes forever :)

35) “When your mom is boring and works at a computer all day and you just can’t take it anymore so you fall asleep in the living room”–Bozeman

06172016 phone dump15

36) Colin and I took the kayaks out to the Lake for date night and saw this lovely sunset!

37) I really couldn’t be happier that it’s blueberry and peach season–everyone should go to Urban Agrarian (or your local farmers market) and snatch some up!  I see some blueberry crisp in my future.

This weekend we are slammed with wedding festivities for friends and Father’s Day plans.  I hope the weekend finds you enjoying something that’s your favorite :)

Friday Phone Dump

“This body’s not my own
This world is not my own
But I still can hear the sound
Of my heart beating out
So let’s go boys, play it loud

On the final day I die
I want to hold my head up high
I want to tell You that I tried
To live it like a song

And when I reach the other side
I want to look You in the eye
And know that I’ve arrived
In a world where I belong”

1-3) We had a quiet Friday last week that featured a lovely walk with Bozeman.  He loves when we go places like a park or the lake where we can let him off his leash haha

06102016 phone dump2

4) Poolside time with my friends is something I’m looking forward to enjoying a lot this Summer :)

5) Haha, we had a glow party at church this week for our 5th and 6th graders at it was messy and so fun!


6) Colin and I went to KatieBugs for their last day at their Midtown location (which we are super sad about), and it was delicious as always!  Blackberry lime is just grand :)

06102016 phone dump3

7) While we were in Midtown, we got to watch the bicycle race that went on all weekend!  So fun.

8)  I wish I could scratch and sniff this photo…all the peach yummy things will be filling our kitchen this summer, that’s for sure :)  Also, thanks Urban Agrarian for being so awesome!

06102016 phone dump4

9) Uhhh, that middle bracelet is my new favorite thing.  Know why?  It has a volcanic rock in it, which I can put essential oils on then enjoy them throughout the day as they diffuse.  so. awesome.  It’s from 7th & West–you should check out their shop!

10)  More park walks with Bozeman :)


11) Lake Hefner is the best

06102016 phone dump5

12) Mornings can be hard when you’re a sleepy pup

13) I’m itching for a summer road trip (good thing I’m going on one…sort of…this weekend)

06102016 phone dump6

14-15)  My friend, Danielle, is the sweetest!  She’s been putting together this adorable coffee/tea cabinet in her house and I got to enjoy it with her this week.  She made me some English strawberry-mint tea and it was lovely.

06102016 phone dump7

16) When sweet potato fries are for dinner and I get to use rosemary from our garden, it’s a happy day :)

06102016 phone dump8

17-19)  I got to visit the new French wine bar in Yukon, Derailleur, with Beth and Chelsea this week–it was delicious!  Maybe a little pricey, but really cute and high quality.  Also, I love Beth and Chelsea alooooot

20) Could there be more things I love in one photo without fitting my people in it?  Probably not.  I loved getting a surprising moment to read HP at Cuppies this week–it was a much needed break!

Sorry I’m not very wordy this week, I’ve been rushing around preparing for a girls’ trip to Austin this weekend!  I can’t wait–feel free to follow along on Instagram if you’d like :)  I hope your weekend is the loveliest!

Engagements: Josh & Madison

These two just have a way of being that makes you feel like they’re falling in love over and over with every moment.  Josh and Madison were a little shy (and super hilarious–we laughed so much) throughout their engagement shoot, and I loved every minute of it!  I think you can really see what I mean in these photos–they are so sweet and gentle and shy, but they really just love each other deeply.




I can’t wait to shoot their wedding in July!

Happy Wednesday, friends.
