Be it National Donut Day (a personal fav!), Best Friends Day, Dog Day, or my husband’s birthday (Aug 11th!) – there is ALWAYS something to celebrate in this world. And how lovely and wonderful to make a habit of celebrating life! So today, I’m celebrating my 2-MONTH ownership of Dishie!
WHAT. A. WHIRLWIND.
In the past TWO months, Dishie has:
booked 11 events (11, y’all!!!)
met with 9 amazing brides, planners, and hostesses
hosted a summer book club with 7 other women, challenging each other to exercise our vulnerability and creativity
hosted 4 themed tables at the My Dream Wedding Expo at the Hilton Altamonte
participated in 3 styled shoots (with another 4 on the calendar!)
hosted 2 glamorous baby shower tea parties
and filled this incredibly blessed gal with ONE GRATEFUL HEART.
Earlier this year, I decided to live in the faithful pursuit of that which brings great love, life and joy into my life. And then God brought Dishie along! And I have loved EVERY MINUTE so far; what a dream!
Brene Brown writes, “To love someone fiercely, to believe in something with your whole heart, to celebrate a fleeting moment in time, to fully engage in a life that doesn’t come with guarantees – these are risks that involve vulnerability and often pain. But, I’m learning that recognizing and leaning into the discomfort of vulnerability teaches us how to live with joy, gratitude and grace.”
― Brene Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are
So here I am, with my vulnerable heart, daring greatly and dreaming big dreams for Dishie’s future while filled with incredible joy, gratitude, and grace. There’s no place I’d rather be. And I’m just getting going – so hold on tight! I can’t wait for what’s ahead and rejoice greatly in all the beauty, life, and fun that has surrounded me so far.
ON BEAUTY // Last month my sweet college galpal Katie Manero, the talented genius behind KT Crabb Photography, invited me to participate in an Ethereal Styled Shoot at her grandparents’ lake house in Umatilla. We had the most fun creating this GORGEOUS shoot together, and I’ve got a couple exclusive pics straight off the press, just for you! Enjoy!
