Happy Monday, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a Monday Mix-Up post, hasn’t it? Honestly, I wasn’t sure that people read it but I received a lot of feedback asking where these posts went! So thanks for reading and make sure to leave a comment below. 🙂
A quick catch up on the summer, since we haven’t talked in a while! In the middle of July, we had our nieces from Tennessee visit for an entire week. They’re the same age as Brody and they had a blast! We took them on factory tours, made their own ice cream flavors, hit the pool a bunch, and had an epic water battle in our back yard.
We’re expecting! Shortly before Christmas we’ll welcome a little baby girl! We did a little gender reveal and let #GeneralTravisMagoats tell the world. I’m still in disbelief! We snapped a few quick photos, but it was crazy hot that day, so excuse our outfits. 😉
I spent this past weekend in Deep Creek Lake at the AKP Retreat hosted by my friend, Ashton Kelley Photography. It was a great mix of education, vacation, and a sweet 90s themed party. We stayed in a castle and my friends Chesapeake Charm Photography, Enchanting Events and Design, and Kait Bailey Photography came along. I made a bunch of new friends, too! It was sort of like a giant slumber party and a therapy session. It’s nice to be around so many like-minded people struggling with similar things. Being a photographer can be lonely! You spend so many hours stuck behind a computer and sometimes feel like no one around you ‘gets it’. Every so often I realize that I need to get out of my shell and be around other creatives.
What have you been doing this summer? What’s in store for August? Tell me below! I’ve got two weddings this month but I’m hoping to keep things calm before crazy fall weddings pick up again.
