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

Highlight of the week: So I know not many people would say church was the highlight of their week, but I LOVE MY CHURCH. We started a new sermon series this week on miracles included in the book of John and what they each say about who Jesus is, and it was amazing -- world class preaching and delivery of truth. If you're interested, you can watch the sermons online any time here. Oh, and my friend Sara came with me for the second week in a row, so that made it even more awesome.

Yes, I did this:
1 -- Finished my first box of Samoa Girl Scout cookies for the season. On to the next!
2 -- Decided to have a Saturday garage sale … on Friday night. Thank goodness for family reinforcements and Thai take-out!
3 -- Got sucked into the vortex that is online shopping for a full day while on a mission to redecorate my guest bedroom.

Celebrating: This week I launched a video series and eBook that has been in the works in my brain for literally YEARS. This is something I should have done a long time ago. It was a huge project and I feel such a sense of accomplishment for finally checking this one off the list! I hope these resources can be super-helpful for photographers who are seeking to improve their wedding reception images.

In my mission to redecorate my guest room, I had a particular queen-sized iron bed frame in mind. Have you ever done this? I found a photo on Pinterest, fell in love with this one particular bed (that is likely an antique and nowhere to be found) and all of a sudden all other beds seemed worthless. Nothing measured up. I did find a similar bed that was made by Ikea, but no longer in production. So I searched Craig's List to see if anyone was selling it used. I found one! (Hopes rise.) I texted the seller only to find out it's already sold. (Hopes dashed.) Next I did what I always do when all hope seems lost -- I posted it on Facebook. Ahhh, the power of modern community networking. I got a plethora of suggestions for where to look to find similar beds -- all super-helpful -- but again, nothing was measuring up. Then, when all hope seemed lost, my friend Emily who lives less than a mile from my house, texted me saying she has the exact bed from IKEA that I was interested in -- a queen no less! -- and would I want to arrange a trade? CRAZY! Seriously, social media slays me. It connects you to the world, and to your neighbor just down the street who -- unbeknownst to you -- has the easiest and best solution that you couldn't have imagined possible.

Feeling Blessed: It's been a full week and my taxes are DONE.
