Given the number of photo shoots I’ve done recently, it’s been lovely to have a small taste of Spring. I hear winter’s coming back to join us for a little while though, so I’m getting pretty excited about that (especially if snow will be involved). I’m not quite finished wearing my sweaters yet–though I must admit I’m ready for some kayaking and hammocking! Such is life, I’d like to have my cake and eat it too :)
1-2) This lovely bride-to-be came and stayed with me last week, and we got to enjoy a breakfast before she left town. I’m so excited for her wedding festivities coming up this Spring!
3) Colin and I went to Dallas this weekend to do a photo shoot for my mom and her besties! They’ve been friends since 3rd grade or so, and it’s not very often they’re all in the same place at the same time. This duck-faced selfie was taken at the end of our shoot!
6-8) We did a sort of whirlwind tour of the Bishop Arts District per the recommendation of several people! We ate a delicious dinner (those are fried balls of risotto…do I need to say more?) at Bocce, grabbed delicious coffee at Oddfellows (where we will definitely brunch next time), and finished the evening with a slice of Merry Berry pie from Emporium Pies which was pretty delicious and I wish I had a slice to eat right now. Mostly we drove around listening to Uptown Funk and looking at lovely downtown Dallas.
9) Sunday morning we were really excited to get to visit The Village Church in Flower Mound! We recently listened to this sermon series by Matt Chandler, and we’ve been recommending it to everyone we know. It was awesome to get to see him preach live and to witness the awesome things God is doing through their church!
10) This quote was in one of my yoga textbooks last week, and I thought it was pretty perfect. It says “You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life.” –J. Krishnamurti
11-12) We got our 2014 yearbook in! We started a tradition last year of making a “yearbook” for every year of our marriage. That way we can print all the photos we want, even if they aren’t the highest quality, and I don’t have to mess with scrapbooking things. Shutterfly has a really easy-to-use process of designing books, and it’s so nice to have a quick way to look back on all our favorite memories from the year!
This weekend Colin and his best friends are going camping while I get to watch my cousin in his high school’s musical! I can’t wait! Oh yeah…and I guess it’s superbowl weekend too haha
