Frivolous: playful, lighthearted, trivial; the little things in life that should be savored.

Favorite Outfit of the Week: Sweater: JCrew / Navy pants: JCrew / Yellow flats: LOFT / Necklace: Style by Becca / Bracelet: Lily

Highlight of the week: Spent a blissful day outdoors with friends and dipped my legs in a pool for the first time this year.

Yes, I did this:
1 -- Commented to Sara in the course of conversation in the office one day that, "That sail has shipped."
2 -- Drove on a dirt road for an hour to shoot a personalized engagement shoot. Never have I been so thankful for pavement than when we got back on the freeway afterwards.

We've got five designers in training for Align to prepare for busy wedding season (for most photographers in the US -- Arizona not included). So our team will be doubling soon! Exciting! If you're a photographer and find yourself feeling overwhelmed and longing to get something off your to-do list this season, consider outsourcing your album design to Align. We're here for you and would love to be a part of your team!

Celebrating: Dixie-dog got her bandage removed and her staples taken out a few days later! Yay! Brand new doggie!

We celebrated Dixie's new-found health by having a play date with a new friend. Unfortunately, despite Dixie's repeated encouragement (i.e. barking in his face), Teddy could not be enticed to actually play on the play date.

Feeling Blessed: Got a much-needed reminder once again this week (by my favorite devotional) that "self sufficiency is a myth perpetuated by pride and temporary success." Ouch -- convicting! The truth is, we all desperately need God. We were all made to be in relationship with, and deeply dependent on, our Creator. That's why Christ said things like, "Blessed are the poor." And "blessed are those who mourn." Basically -- blessed are those who have needs; who are aware of their neediness. And who realize those needs can be met by ME. I SO need to hear this EVERY DAY.
