Hooray! Kris and our celebrated our first wedding anniversary this past weekend! It was so much fun to reflect back on the last 12 months and relive some of our favorite moments. I don’t think we could have possibly packed more into our first year of marriage. We’ve been busy! From starting new businesses, to moving to new cities, to taking new jobs with new companies – traveling, laughing, learning, and loving all along the way.
To commemorate our special occasion we went for a hike and packed a picnic – just like the one we took when Kris proposed. Although, we were not on a side of a mountain this time, it was so fun to break out the champagne, cheese, and olives and relax in the great outdoors. It was a hot sunny day and our little patch of grass in the shade was so wonderful.
After our hike, we took a fun duck boat ride through the city. The tour was the perfect way to explore the city where we first met and where we now call home! Tons of history, I was truly impressed. We finished the night off with a fancy dinner downtown with gorgeous sunset views of the city.
I don’t want to get too sappy on here, but I am so thankful for this past year. We have had so much fun making every moment count. I can’t imagine life getting much better than this, but I know the best is yet to come! Happy Anniversary babe!
The old saying goes, “friends are family too” could not have been more true than on a Sunday afternoon in Old Worthington. I was asked to do a photo shoot to capture the love and friendship between the 3 families as they all are about to begin big new adventures. New jobs, new cities, new careers, lots of new things. They have all been friends forever so even though it was bittersweet occasion, nothing but sweetness came from this photo session! Here are the photos from our park and play photo shoot! Yes, play = ice cream!
It is no easy task finding what I call “flat tire friends.” You know, the friend who you ACTUALLY call if you got a flat tire at an inconvenient place and at an inconvenient time. Yes, those people. Some say if you have just one of those friends you are among the luckiest people on earth. These friends have it. The history, the future, the we will be great friends no matter time zone, latitude, or longitude coordinates we live in.
So, needless to say, it was an honor to capture some great photos and help make new memories as these friends get ready to make their next big moves. The kids were simply adorable. Full of energy and spunk, and hopes of getting only the most gigantic chocolate chips in their Graeter’s ice cream ever. The simple equation of kids +sticky fingers + sloppy ice cream cones = photo magic in the summertime.
If this doesn’t serve as a reminder to get off the computer and call your bestie I don’t know what will! #FriendsAreFamilyToo
Lesson of the day: Don’t waste your ice cream, your big brother wants you to do it like him!….
