Let's Get Coffee! {highs + lows}

Friend, I'm so glad that you are here. I hope you feel right at home when you stop by. That would make me really happy! Today is one of my favorite days! It's the day that we get to virtually sit across the coffee table with one another and share what's going on in our lives...
 
 
highs + lows
---------------
 
// the past couple of weeks have been adventurous. my husband and I flew to Canada for four days and brought back lots of maple syrup and memories we will keep in our hearts forever. One of my favorites is riding scooters all around Montreal. There is just something awesome about riding around a place that you have no idea where anything is & you can't even read the street signs! I have to be honest, I was pretty fearful of doing it but I was able to ride on the back of my husband's and it was so fun! Facing fears is a good thing.
 
 
 
// Doctors orders, I have been drinking 50+ ounces of water per day and I can't tell you how much just doing that has given me my energy back. It's amazing! Apparently, you are supposed to half your body weight & whatever that number is, is how many ounces of water your body needs per day. It's a challenge but you should try it!
 
// I have been editing wedding photos and preparing for my next weeding next weekend! I absolutely love being able to be a party of a bride and groom's super special day creating memories for them that will last a lifetime. If you or anyone you know is getting married, let me know! My husband and I have a photography business & we love to travel!
 
 
 
// God is good. Although I have been so busy the past two weeks and have neglected to spend quality time with my Father, He still shows me throughout the day that He is still with me and He is for me. Do you believe, sister, that God is for YOU? He loves us so much. I am committing to spending time with Him no matter how busy or exhausted I am. He deserves all of me.
 
 
 // Fall is here, guys. Like, it's finally here! I loved writing out all of my Fall Favorites yesterday; it inspired me to rack up on pumpkin and start whipping up some yummy autumn recipes. This morning, I made my husband and I Pumpkin Spice Pancakes and we even had our authentic, natural, and so yummy maple syrup that we bought from a Maple Syrup Farm in Montreal!

How have you been lately? I would love to know!

  2. I purchased my first cans of pumpkin this week and I'm excited for all the recipes I'll be making. Water is so essential, I'm thankful it's not a struggle for me to consume it. I don't understand people who don't like water!

  3. I try to drink a lot of water throughout the day--it has so many benefits! But, it's hard, especially when you have to go to the bathroom so many times throughout the day! :) I love that you rented a scooter in Montreal-that is so awesome! I can't wait to see more pictures!
