Looking at the pretty medieval town of San Gimignano from the Rocca - an original fortification that would protect the locals when the city was under attack - they were typically fighting with Florence or Volterra - once an important trading town where the Via francigena strategically arrived. From here we can see the Church of Sant Agostino the second largest church in San Gimignano
Emerson’s delivery was physically & emotionally one of the most challenging things I’ve experienced... I could NOT have gotten through it without this man right here. It is no accident that marriage and parenthood are both designed as journeys meant to be lived through as a partnership. Feeling blessed to not only have my beautiful daughters, but a man who stands by me through all of my challenges. #blessedbeyondmeasure

As we drove to dinner after their session, Eli asked me how we met. I laughed and said "I slid into her DMs." 😜 While that phrase wasn't a thing three years ago, it doesn't change the fact that it's true! I had admired Sarah's photography and calligraphy and had finally reached out to see if she would be willing to collaborate on a styled shoot with me. It was probably one of the most nerve racking things and I remember being hesitant before hitting the send button. Luckily she didn't think I was crazy and said yes! We met at Starbucks to talk about the shoot and we hit it off. And the rest is history! It's been so nice having a friend like her to create and dream with! 📷🖋 I am so glad I finally got her in front of my camera! Sarah and her husband celebrated 6 years of marriage this summer and this was the first time since their wedding that they had their photos taken together and it was such an honor to capture this time for them 🙌🏻
Time is the most valuable commodity we all have. You cannot recreate or get back the time you spend we only get one life. So I look at it like I do money. I can spend it or I can invest it. Time spent is nearly always wasted. When you do, you need to know that it is like nay purchase you make, a dinner, a beer its a temporary fix. You will never get that time back. Sometimes its worth it, sometimes its not. Investing it might seem like the wisest option but this too can be an incredible gamble. Just like the stock market it can crash at any minute. There are bad and good investments. Distinguishing the two is of vital importance to our overall happiness. Some investments you continue to pour time into hoping you will get a return but never do. Your funnelling the most valuable thing you own into others who dont deserve it, its like flushing money down the toilet.
I wasnt sure I knew how to distinguish between a good and bad investment so I decided to hold onto my time and energy. But then again time never stops, you can loose just sitting and watching it race on by. Then I realised that time invested in yourself is never wasted. The returns start off small but grow and grow over time like lump sum in your long term bank account. Every little bit you save will one day give you a tidy sum. Why invest your time anywhere else? There are some people in life who you give a little to and they give you a lot in return. Just as there are people you give a lot to and little or nothing in return. I blocked everyone out, I vowed to focus on myself until I knew how to spot a good investment or avoid a bad one. I didnt have the energy or emotional capacity to withstand another loss. I was about to file for bankrupcy which would be ending your life. NO longer was it going to be an all or nothing gamble. Wisely I assessed the situation and took my time. Problems popped up and I dealt with them, still convinced overall they would be good investments. Any gamble has a certain amount of risk, its about weighing up the odds and becoming a master at your own personal stock exchange.

Best Day EVER!!! Not everyone loves cats but this girl does and today I got to snuggle 7 of the sweetest babies thanks to my girl Kelli from @lollyjaneblog. I could have snuggled them all day. Now, the hard part is deciding which one to pick if I get one. ☺️🐱 I love the white one and the one I’m looking at with the white spot on its back.
