Today’s post is a special one!! I can’t believe that I’ve never shared the story of how Dylan & I met, but since today is the 7 year anniversary of that day, I figured it was the PERFECT time to share our story!! As I tell my couples all the time, God’s timing is perfect […]
Last week, we hosted the second gather | Jackson, an event for creative small business owners in Jackson, Mississippi! Hallie Brand, Emily Moore, & I hosted this event together, & it was such a joy getting to lead & serve alongside two of my dearest friends. We had so much fun putting together gather | Jackson 2020!
I had SO much fun getting to be an educator at the Amy-Cole Workshop a couple of weeks ago!! Amy is one of my dear friends who I met at our friend Callie’s workshop in Charleston, so it was such an honor to get to help her at her first workshop in her home in Atlanta! From the amazing education to the incredible “swag bags” to the late night Jeni’s Ice Cream run in our pjs, these few days were full of so many fun moments. But my favorite part was…
I had SO much fun getting to spend another afternoon with my friend Miriam of Miriam Shufelt Art! You may remember the spring photoshoot we did earlier this year, & I was so excited when she asked me to do a fall photoshoot for her!! She is beyond talented & serves her clients so well through her gorgeous work & sweet spirit!!
I am SO excited to share more about the first ever Summer Refresh event that my friend Hallie Brand of Dot & I hosted for creatives & entrepreneurs at LifeHouse in Jackson, Mississippi last week! A couple of years ago, Hallie & I started talking about the need for a workshop/retreat for small business owners in our area, & after months of planning, our dream finally came to life! It was such a blessing to see the Lord’s faithfulness in every detail of this event coming together. Hallie & I both felt that having 10 attendees would create the perfect sized group, & we had exactly 10 ladies register!! They are SUCH a talented group, & we had the best day getting to encourage & share with them.
A couple of weeks ago, my family left on an 8 day adventure to CHINA!! My family adopted my little sister from China 20 years ago, & it’s always been a dream for us to get to go back & see the country she calls home! You can imagine how many pictures I took during our trip, so of course I had the hardest time narrowing down my favorite moments. God was so faithful to allow us to get to take this trip as a family, & I am so excited to share some of our favorite memories!!
I am SO excited to announce a brand new event hosted by myself & my dear friend, Hallie Brand of Dot! For the past few months (and if we’re being completely honest, the past couple of years), Hallie & I have been brainstorming & talking about hosting some sort of workshop/event for small business owners & creative entrepreneurs in the Jackson, Mississippi area. We are so incredibly excited to say that our dream is finally becoming reality as we host the first ever Summer Refresh on July 11 at Lifehouse in Jackson, Mississippi!
I have known Miriam for years, (we were in the same youth group for awhile!), so it’s been so fun getting to reconnect with her over the past year! Y’all, she is an INCREDIBLY talented artist!! She does live painting at weddings as well as the most beautiful fine art commissions. I seriously think that every bride & groom should have Miriam at their wedding!! I’ve loved getting to do weddings with her & was SO excited when she asked me to do a photoshoot for her in her home studio! We had the most fun afternoon last Tuesday getting to catch up & capture some images for her to use on social media & her website. You can find out more about her & her business HERE, & be sure to follow her on Instagram (@miriam_shufelt _art) & on Facebook to see more of her amazing work!!
