The Giveaway Winner, Stationary, and Life Lately

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you had a fabulous Easter and that you got to spend time with some of the people who matter most to you! We went to an amazing church service and then had Easter lunch with my family.  After that Ryan, Lexie and I spent several hours just laying in the hammock in our backyard talking and napping and enjoying the glorious spring weather. That’s becoming one of our favorite things to do lately. I love doing things that make time slow down for just a little bit…it’s something so simple, but I like how it lets me press pause and just take in the beauty of a day and focus in on some precious moments spent with my little family.

This work week is already in full swing and I am working on a lot of different projects at once…editing and emailing and meetings and behind the scenes business things that always demand my attention, but then I’m also working with a designer to put the finishing touches on my new stationary and print materials! I’m working with Lauren of Elle and Company Design on these and ooh I am in love! It’s such an exciting thing to see your brand come to life in the form of pretty stationary! It’s also been exciting to work on materials for my new niche offering, Anniversary Celebration Sessions. I am so excited about these! I can’t wait to share more once it all comes together! (And to hold you over here is another little peek at the anniversary session that I did on St. Simon Island that I’ll be sharing soon!)

For now, I just wanted to announce the winner of my website launch giveaway! I’m so thankful for everyone who entered the giveaway..to all of you who commented, messaged me, or shared it I’m sending you a HUGE hug and thank you from the bottom of my heart! Guys it feels so good to be able to call this little place on the internet mine! I love how it shows off my feminine side and that it’s sophisticated but also approachable. Sure I love Jackie O’s style, and pink peonies, and I feel inspired by Europe and traveling to new places which you might know if you’ve visited my About Me page…but I’m also just a girl (with a goofy and fun-loving side) who cares deeply about what I do and the people that I get to work with. So I hope that it shows my genuine side too and love that it shares the deeper message I believe in too! I just feel so grateful for all of you and I wish I could give something to every single person who reads my blog or supports my business!

But now without further ado..the giveaway winner is Shannon Shaughnessy! Yayy! I’ll be in touch soon!
