"Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path." -Psalm 119:105
Whenever I forget God is lighting my path, and there’s no need for me to get out the flashlight app on my phone-everything starts to fall apart. Lately “let go and let God” has been easier said than done and it’s my goal to make that second nature!
I bought this dress for prom my senior year with Philip and never got any photos in it because I waited till the DAY OF to sew all my alterations. Thank goodness I was able to take these photos with Leah…better late then never!
When I saw this hat in H&M with my mom I knew I needed it. I wore it around the store to see if I could realistically handle a hat that required this level of commitment. (not usually a hat person) The hat’s diameter was so big my personal space bubble doubled and people had to dodge the hat as they passed me…BUT after they passed I noticed them walk strait to the hat section to try on the same giant sombrero-sized-sun-hat I was wearing. Thank you, mom for buying me this beauty. I think I finally found my hat-sosulmate.

My girl Julia curated this art show with the Museum of Modern Art. Just a year ago we were marveling at the idea of an Instagram Art Show-it was amazing to see it actually happen!
Always wanted to be a girl scout…never happened. Thankfully I can still live out my dream by buying the uniforms every time I see them at thrift stores!

The Fourth of July is full of sparklers, barbecues, patriotic cupcakes and lying on the beach watching fireworks (with the love of your life;) …speaking of him-Philip and I have been eating one of these cupcakes every morning for breakfast this week. Team Maxwell has been reunited! Less than a week till he moves to Brooklyn with me!! Counting down the days…

Nothing! It was just one of the many beautiful places I fell in love with while exploring Detroit.
It’s been exactly one year since Philip and I got married! We’ve learned a lot in this year- one thing being that it takes me forever to edit my wedding photos (still going through them) and two being that a long distance first year being married sucks. By God’s grace we made it through the year and today marks our first day living together for good…FINALLY!
Here is my incredible 3-way-convertible-wedding-dress that Liza Nay designed for me. When I originally came to her and told her my ideas for the dress they were all over the place. She created this timeless piece that I couldn’t have been happier with!
This look is what I wore for the reception. The train from the dress comes off and turns into a cape! Thank you Liza for including as many of my crazy ideas into this dress-if anyone needs a custom wedding dress this gal is definitely the one to go to… I didn’t get to try the dress on till the morning of my wedding. Praise the Lord, it fit perfectly. Check back soon to see the other two looks from my transformer dress!
After a break from bloggin and pondering what it means to be a “blogger,” I’m back! God’s been doing a lot of crazy things in my life over this last year so we’ve got a lot to catch up on… but for now I’ll give you a snippet of a snippet from my shoot with Hana Haley- San Francisco Babe/Photographer…
