Friday No. 11

1.¬† I stepped into a new adventure this week and am so excited to share more about it with y’all soon! I’m praying for continued clarity before I share more details, but it has been such a sweet answer to prayer and God has been filling me with so much vision!

2. This week marked one year since my trip to Chapel Hill for the Making Things Happen Intensive! I shared a snippet of my experience here earlier this week.

3. Southern Weddings revealed the cover for their Tenth Anniversary Issue yesterday! I loved ready that the photographer snapped this sweet moment shared by the couple at the end of the shoot – completely unplanned! It’s so true to the heart of Southern Weddings to share authentic moments and love stories! I preordered my copy yesterday and y’all should too!

4. For the wedding we attended last weekend, I borrowed the dress my dear friend Jenn wore as maid of honor in our wedding and now I want to purchase one of my own! It is such a classic, polished style and can be styled to wear to events year-round (similar). Fun fact: my bridesmaids gowns were inspired by this Southern Weddings editorial.

5. I have found so much joy practicing with my new camera lately. This is one of my absolute favorites from earlier this week. I’m excited to keep learning!


What are y’all up to this weekend? Share in the comments below!

My Sources of Inspiration

Good morning, Y’all! It’s 6:29am and I am sitting at our kitchen table, drinking coffee from my Making Things Happen mug. I wrapped myself in my warm quilt and have a crackling candle beside me. I find so much inspiration in these early morning moments! It has me thinking about what inspires me or, as my friend Lara says, fires me up. While this list could go on forever, here are some of the first ones that came to mind this morning. Enjoy!

How the Making Things Happen Intensive Changed My Life

A year ago today, I had the privilege of attending the Making Things Happen Intensive in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It had been a long-held dream of mine to listen to attend, and I am so much better for it now that I have! While it’s hard to put the experience into words, I am excited to share a snippet of the way MTH changed my life.
