Have a little faith,

It’s crazy to think about how totally my different my life was three Christmas’ ago.

I had just finished the most demanding and stressful academic year of my life, and was finally a dental professional. I was healing from a nasty break up, working three jobs, and was 6 months into running my business.

My mom had her house on the market, and little did I know that it would be our very last Christmas in my childhood home. After Christmas I took off from working in a dental office after all of that hard work to finish out a few classes using the rest of my scholarship money ( I am still one class away from getting my associates in business administration) I wanted to spend the semester focusing on going through things, getting rid of stuff, organizing stuff, getting prepared to sell the house ( little did I know that we really needed me to take a full semester to do it, who knew you could accumulate so much stuff!!)

 

Three years later… I am married and have two kids (and a dog and two cats!) We own a house in Fredericksburg, I am still loving running a successful business, and have yet to go back to work. We have been through some extremely challenging times that I never thought I would personally experience, but my marriage is stronger than ever and I am a totally different person for it.

It’s never what I would have expected. If you would have told me my life would look like this three years ago, I would not have believed you, but I’ve had faith through it all that there was a bigger plan for me, that I just didn’t know about. It’s what got me through the times that getting out of bed and making it to the couch was a huge achievement because I was just that sick and broken.

I can’t wait to see what the next three years have to hold, but I have faith that it will be amazing!

Lifestyle Newborn: The Gordon Family

The Gordon Family was so much fun to shoot! They were so welcoming, playful and flexible while shooting, but that’s just what you have to be when dealing with a newborn and 2 1/2 year old little girls.

Visit to Alewerks in Williamsburg, VA

Such a good little spot for a sunday funday drink or a night out on the town with live music on Sundays. Trivia on Wednesdays and Brewery Tours on Saturdays. I loved the games that they had and the food truck was fabulous. It was perfectly fine having little miss Kinsley and Madison with us. We loved that they do 1/2 off Growler fills on Monday, and $1 off pints for teacher appreciation. Plus a Womens Defense Class on Saturdays.
