Is this real life?

 You know that exciting feeling when you pin something on Pintrest and it actually comes alive!?! Ya, I didn't know that feeling until the other day when we brought this beauty inside (I am very much a pinner that doesn't do anything I pin :).

 My AMAZING husband build this table which makes it super special, I am excited about all the memories this table will hold. 

This is the before...

And this is the after...I still can't believe it is real...it's just so pretty! :) 

I LOVE it!


Busy, but good.

Life as of lately had been one word. BUSY! It gets this way every time this year, and now with 2 kids adds jut a little more to the busy :) This time of year is when I have a stack of editing and photo shoots piled up, Also working on some video editing for our church. I am finally caught up today as the cooler rainy weather sets in. Next week hopefully the weather is better and I can get in a few more shoots before winter (NOOOOOOOO) sets in.

Even though the busy is crazy sometimes I am learning to love and embrace it, because today is a gift! 

We haven't really had time to do any work on our house, hoping this winter things will settle down a bit and we will find some time...but we most likely will just have to make the time... :)
BUUTTT one thing that I am SUPER excited for is Henry he been busy working on building a kitchen table for us, he is working on the finishing touches aka paint and stain.
I AM SO EXCITED!!!!! :) :) I will make sure to share pictures with you once it is done! 

For now I will leave you with a few photo's from our "hey let's go to the park and set up the tripod for a few quick photo's" photo shoot last Sunday evening :)

A huge storm

Wednesday evening we were watching the weather cause there was a sever thunderstorm watch on. We have had quite a few watches this summer and nothing has come out of them so we were not expecting much this time.
It started to rain, then it started to pour and get extremely windy and as we were watching out the window I saw a huge branch fall towards our house and at that point we ran to the basement.
About 20 mins later we came back up to see the damage, it was a mess. A lot of trees down....we drove around our area and were in awe of how much damage had been done in just a few mins. But we are thankful, yes there was damage, lots of trees and some houses damaged. But those are all things. As we drove around I couldn't help but think about places who have lost people, flattened city's due to a storm, it made me ever grateful for what was all standing in the midst of the storm!

My family had been camping in the area and was so so very kind to come over while Henry was at work to help us clean up out yard.

I put together a little video for our memories that I thought I would share, also at the beginning my brothers Josh and Zach did a little newscast that you don't want to miss! ;)

There was a bunch of uprooted trees in the area.
