#randomweddingfacts round 2! The idea of wearing a wedding ring stems from ancient Egypt! They believed there was a vein that ran from the 4th finger of the left hand all the way to the heart! It’s not actually true, but aww!
Had a blast yesterday! 🤗 One of those days that you don’t forget! Won The Knot best of weddings 2018, received some great sweet emails from my couples, and booked 2 more clients in a day! I mean Saturn must have been aligned right 😁 Naaa, joke on the side I feel blessed and today I’m getting ready for the last wedding of the season! It has been such a great year! I couldn’t be happier! 🦄
I’m a big believer in not overlooking the little moments. Life doesn’t have to be all fancy and grand to overwhelm you with joy! Sure those big grand moments are what everyone dreams of, I sure do 🙋🏼 But if you pay attention to all the little stuff you’ll realIze just how lucky and blessed you actually are. Here I see a girl holding his hand and leading him to a place to share a few sweet moments together. I see him trusting and willing to follow with no hesitation just because he adores her that much. Sweet and simple ✨💛
*In the end, we all just want someone that chooses us…over everyone else, under any circumstances…*
✖️This morning I opened my phone and this quote popped up and oh how true it is. You see, these 5 people in this photo with me, they mean the world to me. Every day, I choose them, over everyone else and under any circumstance, I choose these 5 people. Those 4 kids means the world to me, they are my heart, living, breathing, walking & talking next to me every day. I worry that I have made or will make decisions that will mess up their future but that’s all beyond me. I can do everything I think is right but in the end, it’s not my decision what happens to them and where their future takes them. All I can do is pray that they continue to love Jesus and that their hearts are happy and healthy. My only hope is that they know their momma chose them-every minute of everyday. ✖️Do you see that guy in the middle-the one with the biggest grin on his face-I choose him everyday too. He came into my life and made an impact. When I met him, I wasn’t looking for him, my life was falling apart around me and yet somehow he found his way in and he has made my days so much brighter. He chooses me, on the days when I’m at my best and on the nights when even the smallest tasks seem overwhelming. When I feel like I can’t do anymore, he steps in and encourages me to keep doing it for those kids. He won’t admit it but y’all this guy is hands down the best man I’ve ever met in my whole entire life. He’s resilient, honest and loyal. ✖️This is my family-the reason I wake up everyday-it may not be the picture I thought it would be a few years ago, it’s better than anything I ever could have imagined. Sometimes good things happen overnight. Redemption.
