6 years ago I married a saint I tell you! My best friend, the only one who can handle my special blend of crazy, puts up with my constant need to reinvent, to do something more or new.
Kaleb, you make me laugh every day. You often put my own happiness above your own and you’ve got a smile that lights up each and every room you walk into.
Thank you for loving me. Every bit of me. So much so, that I love me. Here’s to 6 years walking side by side in this journey as husband and wife. I’d be lucky to get 100 more. 📸: Katie Vee | Katie Vee Photography ( @katieveephoto )
planning. | wedding no. 5 | 2018 | Final prep underway this AM before I head back to one of my favorite venues for T&P's wedding! And by final prep, I mean printing timelines / floor plans / setup notes, drinking water because I'll forget to do that for the next 10 hours, and gettin' jazzed with my fav pre-wedding music (the Backstreet Boys, obvi).
Trust me, bts for this wedding is something you're not gonna want to miss - keep those eyes on my story! 👀

Just kidding. ☺️ But I am up to something fun! For the next week I’ll be road tripping around British Columbia and hopefully avoiding some wildfires.
If you have any BC tips, hand ‘em over - I would love to know!
What are you up to this weekend?

This week is starting and ending with a filled up soul. Monday: Donner Lake with a new friend. This weekend: Mama + Sissy arrive for some Sacramento fun! My heart could POP. 💛

Blue. I’ve been looking for a way to fill my ginormous (at least it seems that way) white living room wall. Every time I thought I knew how I wanted to decorate that space, I changed my mind suddenly, determined that there had to be a better way to fill the empty
I didn’t know this about me before, but it hit me one day, as my parents were helping me unpack my stuff in my new place. My mom began asking me what I’d like my new place to look like, rug colors, mat textures, wall—fixtures and all. I am no good at decorating. Like, I had no idea how to put a space together. I’ve never been on my own before and the idea of having to decide how my space would be...mine, freaked me out.
But then, little by little I found some pieces that I didn’t hate, and started to put them together. And yesterday, I stumbled upon these little treasures at Marshall’s. I couldn’t resist the ocean hues and beach vibes. I knew it was meant to be.
All that to say, for anyone else struggling to put your place together after either never having to do it before #livingsingle or maybe putting the pieces of your life back together after a breakup or split—take your time. It will all come together eventually and it will look amazing. And before you know it, it will start to look, like you. ttys

Earlier this week my husband asked me what I’m most excited about right now. Before I could start gushing about the new floral product sourcing I’ve got in the works or the geometric dinosaur envelope liners that are currently being printed for L&R’s Fernbank wedding he added, “but it can’t be about work.” Well that stopped me in my tracks. Two things that I did already know but don’t often think about became imminently clear:
1️⃣ I am incredibly lucky to truly love (most of) what I do for a living. As difficult and stressful and scary as it may often be, it is such a gift to be able to support myself through my own small business. I’m a real happy gal in this picture, making sure every detail met my Type A (read: anal retentive) standards before the reception space opened to guests.
2️⃣ I should probably spend more time focusing on the things that make me happy that have nothing to do with my career. It’s been a very difficult Summer for our family and it was hard for me to identify things outside of work that are currently gettin me jazzed. I thought about it for awhile and realized that I really have let other passions fall by the wayside in my pursuit of career growth and family/real life responsibilities. So I’m taking action! IG peeps, hold me accountable - I’m going to start studying French again to facilitate more and more travel and I’m going to increase my physical therapy exercises so that I’m strong enough to put a horse in our barn/paddock and ride again. Big goals, obscenely long post. #sorrynotsorry If you’re still with me, tell me what you’re excited about right now! But it can’t be about work. 😜

I never thought entrepreneurship would be where I end up before 30 years old, but I can’t help but be excited to build a life by design. I always wanted to build a business and hated working for someone else which led me to opening my own social media agency.
I remember a year ago I had to give up something I had a passion for due to a conflict of interest for a job I had just taken. It broke my heart, but in that moment I realized it was my time to build my business.
• I wanted to do things my way. • I wanted be in control.
• I wanted to share my knowledge with someone who needed help.
A year ago was my 💡moment when I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. When was yours?

One of the things I love about going to creative workshops with independent artists is just spending the day listening to them talk about their passion. I have spent today alongside @nigelsutherlandart being taught the art of woodcut by Kevin (@kapicko) at Green Door Printmaking Studios in Derby. Kevin is so enthusiastic when he talks about printmaking... he got completely carried away telling me all sorts about all the different printing techniques that he uses, not just woodcut, and I really enjoyed listening to him share his experiences. It’s also inspiring spending time in studios like this, surrounded by all the used tools and the abundance of art that adorns the walls.
I hope whatever you're doing today is fun & a bit refreshing. 🍓
it's good to be checking things off the list and to be busy "doing" but don't forget the human side of life. The part where you are enjoying each and every moment.
Because those are the moments that matter. Out of everything that I've "accomplished", I've always been disappointed because I felt like I was going to transform or change in that EXACT moment. But you don't change in any one situation or moment (I mean there's some exceptions). You grow and evolve in the most subtle ways. ⛅️
Those long hours at your desk working on your dreams, those late nights at the j o b, that run you did at the gym early in the morning? These moments are the ones that create and fuel the bigger picture.
So I hope you make the small moments count today because those might be the moments that actually make up your story :)
E quella faccia che ho
Come dici tu
Che esprime il meglio di te
Infinita schiena per me è
L'immagine di te
Sulla tua pancia io

Happy Saturday! Gosh I shot this wedding back in 2010 in Brazil! Can't believe how time flies but I came upon this photo and felt it was a good fit for this beautiful sunny day in Phoenix AZ. I know some photographers don't like weddings and I respect it but I LOVE IT. Love the happiness and exciting and all the love we get to witness. It makes me smile from beginning to end... Love people in love :)
It’s the weekend so time to celebrate like Gracie & Robbies wedding in Islay.

This weekend begins the task of putting herbs, hydrangea, and wildflowers away to dry for winter cooking and fall floral arranging. || @parkerfitzhenry’s images from a vintage issue of Kinfolk always bring such inspiration during this process.
I believe when you love someone, their happiness is your happiness... but also their sadness is your sadness. This week, my best friend and I are both rejoicing and mourning her precious father leaving us to go be with Jesus. There is SO much joy in that, but it is met with very heavy hearts.
Through witnessing @thecourtneyanne’s faith this week, I have been reaffirmed that God really does provide peace that surpasses all understanding to the broken-hearted... I am in awe of you Court, and I love you infinitely.
To your dad: Thank you for raising your daughter into the woman she is. I will make sure she never loses her zest for life you taught her. I’ll be with her through it all cheering her on, just like you’ve always done. But really, she can’t get rid of me – I’m taking her to the rocking chair 👵🏻👵🏻
Hug your loved ones a little extra tight & tell them you love them today, will ya? 🙏🏼 #GodIsGood
After every storm there is a rainbow of hope... 🌈 .
Maddox, I hope you know how much you are loved, how much you were prayed for and how big of a blessing you are to your family. Our community has prayed for you and your Mom and Dad since day one and we are so excited to watch you grow. .
You are so loved little one 🌈 .

The most accurate representation of my Saturday mornings. I am only paranoid about one thing in life- being late to a wedding, especially if it’s more than 30 minutes away. On almost every summer Saturday morning, you can find me camped out for an hour or two at the Starbucks closest to the wedding venue; emailing, list writing, listening to podcasts, pre-hydrating, and knitting today.

Yes, it’s been literally forever since I have posted. No, I didn’t die in the first few months of newborn hood. I’ve just been enjoying that #nosleep life is all. He’s the most gorgeous, silly, talkative, farty baby around, but Jesus knows I could use a two day nap. I am so behind on posting and need to get on that, but right now I am just going to show you this moment from my so cute couple yesterday. They’ve been together for what seems like forever and yet you can still feel that just fell in love vibe. They had me awing and ooing the entire time. I can not wait for wedding day!
Playing assistant with @jescatebrown for a wedding at Atwater Brewery in Detroit today ✨
