Blessed Weekend!

I am surely not the ONLY one who loves weekends in blog world... They are so sweet and lovely. We had a beautiful and blessed weekend. I found myself being thankful for so many things. I can easily lose thankful-ness when I find myself so busy, but this weekend I reflected on it in-between the busy events. What an AMAZING perspective!

Josh and I had fun cleaning up the house and getting ready for my sweet friend Laurel's Bridal Shower. I also got a LOT of homework done and caught up for the week. :) Anddd, I had a fun Senior Photo shoot in St. Paul on Saturday. I am doing a LOT of Senior Photos these next few weeks. God is a provider!

Enjoy the photos:

Laurel with her mama & 3 sisters!

Some of the HA girls that came!

It was such a LOVELY time! I love parties, friends and marriage! What a perfect combination. In less than 3 weeks (October 2nd) I will be standing next to my Laurel Lee hearing her say "I DO" to Andrew :) Yes! So fun!

Also, here is a sneak peek from my Senior Photo Shoot:

More photos to come! I have LOTS of photo shoots coming up this week and next. I think 8 total, actually. Wow! Fall is crazy!

Happy Monday, Friends :)

I love your blog, you're so positive and uplifting. It's such an encouragement!

I am hosting a bridal shower for my future sister-in-law and I am clueless! Your games sounded like so much fun, could you tell me how you played them? Any other advice you have would be fantastic.

Thanks so much and thanks for blogging!

What Fun! Ria, you always seem to capture the 'spirit’ in your photos. I've decided that is what I like best about your work. Take care.
