We Got to Play Dress-Up!!! Personal

This week included a whole lot of things that were NOT on my to-do list. Like a high fever, unplanned doctor’s appointments, an emergency appointment at a specialist and way more time in bed than I wanted. It always seems to be the busiest weeks when my body decides it needs to demand a break…but I’ve learned that, if my body wants a break, I need to listen. Or else things can get worse and I’m forced to take even MORE time off. So, this week has been spent working a lot from bed…but this blog post it making my week so much brighter 🙂

A few months ago, my sweet friend Morgan asked Drew and I to model for a styled shoot for her. After weeks of planning and moving schedules around…we were finally able to make it happen! So, needless to say, Drew and I DIDN’T actually get married 🙂  BUT, we had so much fun playing dress up for the day an I am SO grateful for Morgan and Joey for allowing us to be a part of this!!! We LOVE the images so much!!! Morgan and Joey have a very different style from my own…and I LOVED getting to work with them and have images that are so different than my typical bright and airy shots!! And, thank you to Drew for being such a blessing in my life and for taking such good care of me this week. Bringing me ice cream and watching endless Fixer Upper with me kind of makes him the best human ever.

And one last huge thank you to all of these incredible vendors who made it happen:
