I know, I know. . . we’re all ready for winter to be over! It’s just that the surprise snow we had on Monday reminded me of this snowy engagement session Andy and I shot back in 2013 (time really flies!), and I thought while winter is still clinging on I should get on the ball and share it! So let’s consider this our goodbye wave to winter!
Spontaneity ebbs and flows in my veins. It usually flows more often than it ebbs, and every once in a while it flows so strongly that it can carry Andy, the very logical, methodical, home-loving counterpart of this duo, right along with it. And so it happened last year. In the cold of winter I said, ‘Let’s go to California,’ and just two short months and one giant discovery later we were there. We drove Highway 1 all the way up from Big Sur to the Redwoods in Eureka. It was a dizzying, terrifying, majestically beautiful drive—one I’ll never forget. We saw unending ocean vistas and rocky coastal cliffs. We hiked 8 miles for the best ocean view. We realized sea lions are the coastal California equivalent of deer in Ohio. We went glamping and whale watched from our tent’s porch. We set our sights on trees tall enough to challenge man-made skyscrapers. It was all so spectacularly beautiful! I’m dreaming of those warm, salty ocean breezes right now. . .
Sarah and Jake rocked our socks off! First with their awesome engagement session, and then with their laid-back, super-fun, adventure-filled wedding. There were yard games, card games, pies, gilded dinosaurs, flower crowns, gingham shirts, gladiator sandals, and a bon fire! I could keep going! So much fun stuff! We hiked into the woods. We found a canoe and put it to good use. Everything about this wedding was just so much fun—including Jake and Sarah! Here’s to summertime adventures and comfy love!
He’s here! He’s here! We weren’t quite sure if he was going to come on his own, but closing in on the 42nd week marker, he finally decided to make his debut on January 1! Our lives are happy, crazy, messy, and beautiful all at the same time! We’ll get back soon to this dusty blog and some very happy moments from 2014 and even 2013! XO
