Monday’s Mash-up

Good morning friends, it’s Monday morning and time to rise and grind for the week!  It’s also time for Monday’s Mash-up where I share a quick little recap of all the fun that happened over the weekend, plus a few sneak peeks!  So without further ado, let’s get cracking:

  • Friday night was a pretty low-key evening.  We spent time finishing up some of the things that have been on our to-do list around the house for a bit.  We also finished up Blacklist and are back to watching Alias together!
  • Saturday was James and Kathy’s wedding! These two are just the sweetest and I loved getting to be a part of their big day!!
  • At the wedding on Saturday, a HAWK flew on my head.  Kathy knew that James loves hawks so she had a professional come in and the hope was that the hawk would fly in and give the best man his speech! It was so cool!  What’s not so cool, is the guy who was running the show asked us to try and photograph the hawk while it was flying towards us, and then, just like that it landed on my head! Needless to say, I was a little freaked out!
  • Now I can put Hawk Attack Survivor on my resume… Boom!
  • Yesterday I got to spend some time with friends watching the game (they were playing well while I was there), and then left to meet Abby and Lexi for their senior portraits session! We went exploring down through Fell’s Point and I just loved my time with these girls! They’re the best!

And now for the good stuff, sneak peeks of what’s coming to the blog this week:

    Oh my goodness, that moment you had with the hawk sounds so amazing yet terrifying at the same time! These sneak peeks are gorgeous – I can’t wait to see more, Lauren!

    Ha! The hawk story. I’ve had that nearly happen to me once and I freaked out. Can only imagine what I would have done if it actually landed… Pretty pictures!! Love that first one especially.

    That last sneak peek is SO good! The tones are amazing.

    Please tell me someone got a photo of the Hawk on your head! That’s terrifying but makes for such an awesome story!

  4. What a weekend! I will say, that brides dress is beautiful!!! I can’t wait to see more photos. P.S. I freaked out when a nat flew into my eye at our wedding Saturday, but you have me beat with a hawk landing in your head!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!
