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

Highlight of the week: It felt so good after shooting 22 hours worth of weddings and events in 5 days to spend some quality time with my family this past weekend. My cousins were in town from Minnesota and we played darts, ate out, ate in, and took lots of walks -- basically a whole lot of nothing. And it was wonderful.

Yes, I did this:
1 -- Finished my taxes -- hurray!
2 -- Wallpapered my bathroom mirror with TRUTH.
3 -- Turned on the AC for the first time this year. Yep, even though it's still snowing elsewhere in the US… it's 98 degrees here.

There's a Target literally across the street from my house. It's so dangerous -- it always sucks me in and hours later I finally emerge with more than I went in for. So I try not to go very often. But I had to bite the bullet this week, so I went in prepared with a specific list, and with heels on my feet (so I wouldn't be too comfy). I still ended up spending over $100. EVERY TIME.

Celebrating: Sara found a lost dog in my neighborhood who temporarily lived in my backyard while we searched for his owner. Thanks to Craig's List he was reunited with his family less than 9 hours later! What a relief. I break into cold sweats just thinking about losing Dixie! SO scary!!!

I got to go to lunch with my sweet friend Emily this week. Emily is a wedding planner here in Phoenix who recently came on as Align's newest designer! So she's a colleague, a friend, and now a team member. I'm so blessed because whenever I walk away from time spent with her, I am encouraged in my faith. I am so thankful for her and only hope I can do the same for others!

Feeling Blessed: I got THE SWEETEST email from a bride whose wedding I recently photographed. Not only did it make me so thankful that I've had such amazing clients lately, but it reminded me of how blessed I am to be able to be a part of capturing people's memories and helping them relive some of the happiest events of their lives.
