Real talk: Can someone please explain to me how a dog and cat who weigh a combined total of 22 lbs can take up more space on my bed than me? I find myself waking up on the edge of my bed every morning while the two fur kids are cozy and sprawled out! Never fails.
SXSW is taking over Austin at the moment. You definitely won’t find me downtown…traffic is insane! I covered SXSW while in college and was given a wristband…but I wasn’t 21 yet so I couldn’t get into the bars where the cool shows were happening! Whereas my best friend had just turned 21 but she didn’t have a wristband. We joked about putting on an oversize T-shirt together and pretending to be conjoined twins to get in.
That same best friend got ENGAGED this past week!! I’m so excited for her!! She’s already booked her venue and tried on a few wedding dresses! She gave me the sweetest “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift! It had the most heartfelt card that made me well up with tears, a box of macarons, lipgloss, a ring pop and some fun strawberry mints! So adorable!
I got to hear all about her proposal over brunch (creme brûlée french toast+ pink lemonade mimosas+ sappy love stories= total perfection!) and can’t wait to dive in to finalizing wedding plans! I’ve been shooting weddings for a few years now and I always get teary eyed at the ceremony. Seeing a couple become husband and wife, listening to their heartfelt vows, watching the bride swipe quickly at a tear on her cheek, those are the moments I adore. I am so excited for my best friend! I cannot wait to see her become a wife! <3
