Every Day Life | Understanding The Message

Today I just want to simply share messages that we should be living by every day.

*Also, if you would be so kind to say a quick prayer my grandmother will be undergoing surgery today*

Cake Smash | South Jersey Photographer

Happy First Birthday to Madi!! I am SO excited that I got to spend a few hours with these two girls on Saturday! You may remember them from back in October when they had a family session  on an adorable farm : ) This past week Madi turned one so on Saturday we headed out to the lake around the corner from their house and then set a cake in front of Madi to eat as she pleased! Reilly jumped in for a few as well!

Every Day Life | Soaking Up The Sun

I sat on the beach today and closed my eyes. The wind blew recklessly, blowing my hair in all directions. I took a deep breath and held it in… then slowly let it out like a wisher from my lips. I felt the brief moments of sun on my face as it soaked into my skin. I slipped my shoes off and dug my feet into the sand. I could smell the salt water and almost touch summer. I opened my eyes, water glistening in front of me, I found a shell in the sand and moved it in circular motion next to me. I squinted, even through my sunglasses at the scene in front of me, wondering how we get to a point in our lives where we don’t understand ourselves. How can we be so on target and then wake up the next day falling off a cliff?

It was windy, I should have brought a jacket but the fact that I didn’t seemed to fit right in. I got in the car this morning and drove until I got to the beach. Then I sat on the beach today by myself trying to remember how to breath. Trying to focus on something, anything that would make me feel better. Until I remembered that I can make myself feel better. I am the keeper of my own happiness. We all have hard days and we all struggle sometimes but that’s when we need to stop.. and breath… 

and enjoy a few hours on the beach soaking up the sun : )
