My brother is engaged!

On September 5th 2014 my brother Owen asked Kelcie to marry him at the Music Hall at Fair Park with some help from Charlie Worsham.

Kelcie has been a part of our lives since 2009 and I couldn’t be more happy to call her my sissyyyyy!

Kelcie, I’ll never forget the moment sitting waiting on the floor of the bathroom at camp and having one of the best talks we have ever had. That’s when I knew you would probably be in our family for evah evah!!

These photos just make me happy : )

Kamber’s Senior Photos

 

I love this girl. She’s a volunteer at Make Promises Happen with Josh and I. I’ve seen her not only dedicate her time to camp, but also do a lot of really cool things that most kids in high school, or most adults for that matter are not capable of. She is constantly laughing out loud, and I can’t think of a time I haven’t seen her with a smile on her face.

oh and did I mention she’s also stunningly beautiful?

happy senior year Kamber!!!

Rian Nichole Fashion : Cleans out MY closet!!

I am so grateful to know miss Rian, and have been able to work with her on a special project for her wedding rehearsal dinner.
She is crazy sweet, and on Tuesday Rian came ALL the way to my front door in Checotah, Oklahoma and cleaned out all of Josh and I’s old ratty out of style clothes! She also helped us with our addiction to t-shirts. We got rid of about 5 trash bags worth of clothes and 2 bags of shoes.
I FEEL AMAZING!!! The little bottle of champagne she gave us was an oh so perfect way to celebrate tidying up and simplifying our lives…………..it was long long over due. Check out her page http://www.riannichole.org

Happy Birthday Jeline!!

If you have contacted me this year about working with me, more than likely you’ve gotten to talk to my sweet sweet cousin/sister/friend/office manager Jeline.  ( the mommah in these photos below ) Jeline has been in my life since I was about 14 because she fell in love , married and made a baby with my cousin Aaron. I am so blessed to have this woman in my life, and am so fortunate that she is willing to work the email, and some of the phone section of this business!

By the way…. she turns THIRTY today…. and is so so so so so so beautiful and a crazy awesome rock climber, check out her blog Climb on Sister here!!

Happy Birthday Jeline : )

Happy 2 Year Anniversary to us!

I’m typing this on the Saturday before Josh and I have been married two years, our house is literally covered in laundry, camera gear, and bags we are packing for our constant trips to camp and photo shoots. We just had our favortie pizza from the best place in Checotah delivered, and Josh is mowing the lawn.

Everyone always says ” the first year of marriage is the hardest” and I would always laugh at them thinking, yeah… sure.. but Josh and I are different, we are one of the best couples I know!

…. the first year of marriage is the hardest.

Don’t get me wrong I love the crud out of that man, and the first year made me love him even stronger, but this beautiful routine we have now, the ” I’ve figured out your quirks and I know when to say what” and knowing that Josh and I both have a busy season of life when we just are’t 100% our selves ( thank God they are in different parts of the year)  This second year has been magical comapred to the first.

Josh is now a seasoned coach.

My business is growing like crazy.

Josh needs lazy days and I have learned to accept it.

Sometimes I need to cry/hug it out, and Josh has learned to accept that. ( I literally jokingly scheduled a hug session this morning so I could just hug him and breath instead of thinking about the bajillon things I had to do today)

Our most recent photo below, taken on 4th of July.  If you’re interested in hearing how we fell in love click here  http://lenaephotography.wordpress.com/2013/02/01/my-love-story/
