I saw this yesterday and I thought it was too good not to share...
Whatever we are facing in this moment we can choose to grab on to the truth. Let everything else go. Let go of the anxiety, fear, uncertainty, and frustration. Park our mind with what is true. "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free"
-John 8:32

One thing I know to be true is that I will be doing a lot of this....

And a little of this*...

on this fabulous 3-day holiday** weekend!

*This picture is for you, A! Thinking about you and baby Carson! Can't wait to meet him and I'm sure you can't wait to enjoy a nice frosty drink this summer!

**Remember the real reason for the 3-day weekend!

"I thank God for my life
For the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
Salute the ones who died
And the ones that gave their lives
So we don’t have to sacrifice
All the things we love"

-Zac Brown Band

Summer Lovin'

This past weekend kicked off a summer full of weddings!
First up....Ashley & Zack
The wedding was held in one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen...
These pictures don't even do it justice!

Introducing Mr & Mrs!!!

Time for cake...
My evening consisted of a few of these,
a drink appropriately called "Blushing Bride."
All the single ladies...
No worries M, I'm saving my jumping skills for 6.12.10!!!
By the end of the night the party was in full force on the dance floor...
especially after some props were handed out! Ha!!
It was such a fun weekend with some old friends!
Congrats again to the Bride & Groom!

Flashback Friday

I haven't done a "Flashback Friday" in a while,
but this Friday it seemed appropriate!
You see, one of my sweet, dear friends from college is getting married this weekend! It's been over a year since I last saw her and I can't wait to celebrate!
She is such a sweet, kind-hearted and fun girl and what makes her even cooler is the fact that we share the same first name!
Congrats Ashley!
I hope tomorrow is everything you dreamed of. You are going to be one gorgeous bride...of that I'm sure! I'm also pretty sure that if the reception is anything like I know it will be, the night may end with us taking a picture on a car!

-noun; the clear and sharply defined condition of an image

Hands down, my favorite thing to do when playing in the maunal setting on my camera is to have a focused subject and a blurry background.

I think it looks so cool!

What do you think?

Do you see the butterfly on the right?

One more month!

In just 30 short days, these feet will be walking down the aisle... He'll be taking her hand...
And tying her down for good!
I'm filled with love for these two and
can't wait to be part of their BIG day!

My New Favorite Song!

Here's a clue...
Yes, that is honey...and yes I took a picture of it! Don't judge! :)
I know this song isn't brand new but i L.O.V.E. it!
The lyrics are perfect!

She grew up on a side of the road
Where the church bells ring and strong love grows
She grew up good
She grew up slow
Like American honey

Steady as a preacher
Free as a weed
Couldn't wait to get goin'
But wasn't quite ready to leave
So innocent, pure and sweet
American honey

There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowin' in the wind
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing's sweeter than summertime
And American honey

Get caught in the race
Of this crazy life
Tryin' to be everything can make you lose your mind
I just wanna go back in time
To American honey, yea

There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowin' in the wind
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing's sweeter than summertime
And American honey

Gone for so long now
I gotta get back to her somehow
To American honey

Ooh There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowin' in the wind
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothin's sweeter than summertime
And American honey
And American honey
