WOW! Has that been a fast two months! Technically, it was two days ago but second kid problems, lol. He likes to eat A LOT, he doesn't like tummy time or getting in the car seat but he LOVES his brother and all the funny things he does! He is starting to look like his dad more and more, but still a twin of Liam's. I like to call him Mr.Magoo because he has a little grumpy face but then he just will burst into his gummy smiles 😹😹!! Can't wait to see what this next month brings us 😻😻
The sun peeked out and we were so glad!! We were able to gather and talk dreams and real every day life today right here at the orchard tables. It’s amazing what can happen when we carve time out for deep conversations...ones where we say ‘this is what I’m hoping for and how I can see it coming to life in my every day.’ We feel so honored that our table can be a gathering place and look forward to seeing you here in the orchard and at our table soon! 📸@saleinamariephotography #outdoordining#gardentotable#farmtable
Life has been really, really hard lately. By lately I mean for about a year. (No joke.) It just feels like life is kicking us when we’re already down. I told Jarin about a month ago that I feel like I’m drowning with no hope of being saved. But then it made me think of the story of Peter walking on water. (I talked about this story a couple posts back too. You should check it out. 😉) I remembered how Peter became distracted by the storm and the waves around him. He began sinking in the vast sea, but Jesus didn’t let him drown. All Jesus needed was Peter’s hand and immediately He pulled him out. I don’t know what you’re walking through, nor do I know why it’s happening. I don’t know when it will end or when you’ll see your miracle. But I do know and I have to believe that Jesus sees your hand (and mine) and He wants to pull you out of it. God’s heart is not for us to be beat down, crushed, or defeated. However, we know in life those times will come. But God’s heart is that through all of life’s trials that you will still reach out your hand and trust that He will pull you out of it. God’s still got you. 💛 “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

We are super happy to announce that Alex & Jimmy's full wedding gallery was just delivered. These barefoot stream walking magical human beings were good for our souls and we are super excited to now call them our friends and future winter hiking buddies.⠀ ⠀ Things are in full swing during this busy wedding season/year and we are grinding all the time. As some of you know we have been on the lookout for an assistant. We are super happy that we finally found one in @laureljollie .⠀ ⠀ It was a literal knew at first sight moment, actually, I knew before we even interviewed her. Her photography made me slow down. This is a rare thing for me, to not be in mental motion. ⠀ ⠀ When we interviewed her, we asked "What are some of your strengths?", a super basic interview question. However, her answer was profound...she said "My strengths are also my weaknesses." referring to the fact that she is an empath.⠀ ⠀ This opened a Pandora's Box of thoughts. So So many of our strengths are also our weaknesses. For example, our ability to work work work and constant strive...100% also totally a weakness in that we have a hard time slowing down. ⠀ ⠀ I am so curious to hear your views of yourself regarding this. What are some of your strengths that are also your weaknesses? ⠀ ⠀ Please share below ⬇️ ⠀ Dress : @grace_loves_lace⠀ Hair & Make Up : @indigo.beauty.lounge⠀ Flowers : @whimsy_weddings⠀ ⠀ #theramsdenspresets#empathsunite#bohobride ⠀ #junebugweddings#photobugcommunity#lookslikefilm#portraitcollective#bohowedding#hudsonvalley#hudsonvalleyweddings #hudsonvalleyweddingphotographer #chasinglight#makemoments#finditliveit#flashesofdelight#livethelittlethings#thehappynow#darlingmovement#weddingseason#darlingweekend#letsgosomewhere#ftwotw#liveunscripted#exploremore#postthepeople ⠀
The Kachina Doll I fell in love with and brought home from our recent trip to Santa Fe. It’s a Hemis Kachina which is “believed to bring great happiness along with the harvest. It is thought to be one of the most displayed and loved Kachinas because of its deeply rooted historical significance and representation of happiness, abundance, and continued life.” It’s now displayed next to my son’s desk. サンタフェより連れて帰ってきたカチーナドール。これはへミスカチーナで、トウモロコシの豊作を願う他、幸せも運んでくれるそう。息子も気に入って、机の横の窓枠にいつも置いてた動物たちをどかして、この子を飾ってる。 - #kachinadoll#カチナドール#お土産#interiors#theartofslowliving
Today I’m grateful for... 1. Cooler weather 🍁 2. Feeling baby boy move 👣 3. Starbucks fall blend ☕️ 4. Flair pens 🖊 5. Maternity clothes 👖 my normal clothes don’t fit anymore 🙈 Finding things to be grateful for everyday is my favorite way to choose happiness. How do you choose to be happy?
