laurel leeI had a WONDERFUL time photographing Kylie & Jarrett with Laurel Lee. She is sooo inspiring :) One of my best friends and we share a similar passion – that is so unique to me! Love you L!

j&k3 j&k2j&k4 j&k1Here are some of my favorite shots from the day… (more to come!) We couldn’t have picked a BETTER weekend. The weather in Mpls was INCREDIBLE on Saturday when we shot this session AND Sunday! :)

Here are a couple fun pics from breakfast on Sunday… It was fun having guests stay with us for the weekend!

Mmm… gotta love it! Josh and I spent 2 hours getting lost on a bike ride, Sunday afternoon. It was glorious and VERY warm! Just a perfect day! We explored the trails surrounding our new home and we are hooked. In fact, we are going to venture out again this evening ((if it doesn’t rain))!!

Some truths from this weekend that are worth recording…

1) Humility, like Jesus is ALL about listening. He knew ALL the answers to EVERYTHING… yet, he chose to listen.

2) Loving Jesus doesn’t have to be boring. It can be NEW and EXCITING!

3) I loveeeeeeeeeee my husband and being adventurous with him is one of my absolute favorite things

4) Note to self: Don’t drive over nails EVER again (apparently I had 4 nails in my back two tires… result = all new tires on my car… how does that even happen to me??) haha

Enjoy your Monday – can’t wait to catch up on blog reading!

Congrats to Christine!

The pictures are gorgeous. No surprise there! I'm so excited to see more!

I love the point that you made about humility. It's so true. Jesus always listens. God always listens. In order to be humble, we too must listen.

I'm so happy that you had such a great weekend, Ria! I hope that your week is just as wonderful:)
