.kimmi. {just a little personal post}

Since the New Year, I have pretty much hit the ground running….  Between trying to catch up on things, new jobs, & being a mom & wife, life has just been full!

I cannot really complain, I feel so blessed, but I definitely have felt the need for a break.

It was such a blessing to have longest, closest friend come visit from Tulsa, Oklahoma this past weekend. Absolutely the best!

I so enjoyed each and every minute spent with her!

We enjoyed Kobe Sushi, Coffee Bar Deliciousness, walks on the River Trails, meeting friends, visiting Bethel’s Healing Rooms,

& one of the highlights, enjoying Anselmo! Thoroughly an awesome weekend!!!!

Kim & I have been friends since I was in the 7th Grade. I’m always in awe that we have remained friends for so long!

She has always been there for me, absolutely loyal & trustworthy, & always such an encouragement! I am so thankful for her!!!

I love you Kimmi!

My Kim!!! AHH! Please keep her in your prayers!

She is going to have back surgery in the next couple of weeks and your prayers would be amazing!

That everything would go incredibly smooth, her recovery would be quick, & that she would  no longer have any back pain!!!!

Believing for a miracle!!!

San Francisco! Who could ask for a cooler place to fall in love?

These two sat across from each other at work…. A few winks here & a few winks there…..

A lot of their time falling in love was on the rooftop of a building!  (Yes, we shot on the rooftop — I was brave)

However,  we started out in their cozy apartment!

They have the cutest dog, Griffin, & had to have a few shots with the pup!

Seriously looks like the softest toy ever! AH! Cuteness!

Congratulations Paul & Brittany! I am so excited for your wedding!!!!!!
