As the year draws to a close, I've been reflecting on all that I've experienced in 2017 and while there are so many things to be thankful for - I am most grateful for all of the people in my life. For my family and their unconditional and gracious love, for the friends who have walked beside me through thick and thin, for clients who have trusted me with some of their most precious moments and who have become friends I can hardly imagine my life without, for every person who has challenged me and encouraged me in pursuing this passion.
Lauren is one of those people and I treasure her so very much. From our first emails together, to chatting about life over coffee and texting about wedding details, to this AMAZING and fun engagement session, to just getting to know one another... I am so thankful for her joyful and encouraging presence. And I'm chuckling to myself thinking about all of the years that we ran in the same circles and shared mutual friends, I'd never known her personally but had observed her beautiful spirit interacting with others and loved the way she openly shared her heart on social media - it makes me so grateful to call her my friend and to be sharing in this exciting time in her and Andy's life.
Andy + Lauren, I love watching you both build a life together - from the way you've created a warm and welcoming space in your home, to the way you bring out the best qualities in one another, to the way you love each other with humility and selflessness. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it!
