:: happy september ::

colorful leaves, pumpkin spice latte’s, cool fall weather … oh I’m so ready for this. I love summer but lately I’m really loving fall. I think it started happening after I got married and have my own house to decorate. Fall is so fun to decorate for in your house. I just love it. The candles … oh the candles … they smell so good! I love change. And fall is just that … change. I recently read that fall is actually the best time to make new goals and resolutions … not new years like everyone thinks. It totally makes sense doesn’t it?! I don’t know about you, but i just feel so inspired and energized when fall comes. Motivated! Which is good because i’m in full BUSY SEASON right now and need allllll the motivation I can get!

Thank you everyone who is being patient for your previews and discs. I think I’m officially behind my normal schedule as of today so I’m doing my best to stay “a float” … I know I’ve said it a million times but I really appreciate it and everyone being so nice helps me relax and enjoy what I’m doing and enjoy the end of summer beginning of fall. This weekend is the holiday and of course I’ll be working a little bit (bring all my work up north with me) but I actually really enjoy getting caught up! You can’t relax when you know you have piles and piles of work to do! So I’m excited to just get caught up … hopefully I can do that this weekend! 🙂 Also plan to fill the weekend with some time bonding with my wonderful family … horse back riding …. who knows. 😉

Here are my goals for this month. I’m keeping it short and sweet because my main goal is to keep up with all my work I’ve been doing. I’ve been shooting almost every night and weddings on the weekend! Love it! Thanks for all your support and make sure to leave a comment of some goals you guys have this month! I’m a huge list maker and believer and they really do help you stay on top of things!
