How I Approach Snail Mail Greetings

How I Approach Snail Mail Greetings

I wasn’t sure what to call this blog post, hence the awkward title above BUT I had a few thoughts about snail mail greetings that felt like they’d go well with the photos Samantha James Photography took for me recently. In this post I alluded to a possibly surprising confession that sending out holiday cards […]

What Worked and What Didn’t in 2019

What Worked and What Didn’t in 2019

My friend Lara has always done a kick you-know-what goal planning series at the end of each calendar year, and ONE of my favorite parts is where she shares the things that worked and did not work for her over the previous 12 months. It’s easy to be motivated by other people’s successes but I […]

Five Things My Life Coach Helped Me With

Five Things My Life Coach Helped Me With

At the beginning of 2019 I hired a life coach. For years I had been torn between hiring a life coach or a business coach. I knew they’d both bring respective benefits to my life but I wasn’t sure what coach would be best. My intention was to start 2019 with the coach by my […]

November 2019 Goals

November 2019 Goals

It only took me until the 11th month of the year but I feel like I’m hitting a groove now where the facets of my life feel like they’re consistent and in alignment. I think the holiday season and uncharacteristically colder and snowier than usual November is helping create a more joyous atmosphere in our […]

Renee Austin Wedding’s 10 Year Anniversary

Some great friendships have been the result of my time in the wedding industry, a perk I don’t take for granted. One of the friendships I’m especially grateful for is the one with Maggie Feil of Renee Austin Wedding. Maggie and I met close to eight years ago when we were both a mere couple […]

October 2019 Goals

My top priority for October is to keep momentum and as such, I’ve been moving along so nicely that I haven’t had a chance to pop in and share my monthly goals with you! Hello, friends! Between celebrations for a new one year old in our home (more photos to come!), hosting five people in […]

Intentionally Simple Styled Shoots

Intentionally Simple Styled Shoots

In my decade of wedding planning and floral design, I’ve planned and executed more than 50 creative editorials. That sounds like a lot of shoots, doesn’t it? Ten years in though, I still get giddy just thinking about the creative freedom and possibilities when it comes to conceptualizing a new styled shoot direction. Call them […]

September 2019 Goals

September 2019 Goals

Did anyone miss my August goals? Ha! No worries, I did too folks. It turns out four weddings, a road trip to North Carolina with two kids under four, three-day conference, and a trip to Canada while nursing a 9 month old, all in the span of six weeks amounts to a shortage of spare […]

How to Add Intentionality to Your Wedding Timeline

How to Add Intentionality to Your Wedding Timeline

Without a doubt, the wedding day timeline we build for each and every couple we serve is the blueprint of their wedding day. Chaos would unfold without it and many people would be lost and confused on expectations, let alone basic directions would be null. While I feel strongly that there’s not a right or […]

July 2019 Goals

July 2019 Goals

Well here we are! Halfway through 2019. In some ways January feels so very long ago and in others, it feels like yesterday we were thick in the bitterness of winter, still figuring out a groove with a then newborn Ev and nearly no sleep. I held off on sharing my July goals until tonight […]

June 2019 Goals

June 2019 Goals

Did anyone else feel like May was a big fast blur? Since the first four (cold and sick–ridden) months of the year felt like they would never end, I was surprised that May flew by the way it did. And while I didn’t get all of my monthly goals checked off, I did make some […]

How I Use My PowerSheets

How I Use My PowerSheets

I like to consider myself one of the original recipients and users of PowerSheets when my friend Lara first released them into the world so many years ago. What a gracious gift to have received, a gift that now has become such a valuable tool in which I use to live out my very best […]
