First of all, can I just move to Fairhope? I’m in love with it. Also, why is it that hotel beds are the most comfortable beds ever? Still dreaming of the good sleep I got in this room.
I’ve had the opportunity to visit the Mobile Bay Area several times, and I’ve stayed in Fairhope twice. Both times I fell just a little bit deeper in love with the city. This work/vacation (aka- workcation) definitely brought my love for the area up several notches. From the resurrection ferns peeking out in between brick structures to the quaint-yet-trendy cafes every mile or so, it was the perfect place to spend a few days with my family relaxing before heading back to our busy school & work schedule.
This wasn’t just a trip for relaxing though…in fact, the main reason we decided to go was so I could visit with a new friend & client, Abigail. Abigail owns Abigail Wellinghurst Photography & is SO GOOD at what she does! She creates a luxury bridal photography experience for her clients with a best friend next door attitude. I mean, literally after just meeting we were already chatting like we had known each other for a long time! We are hoping to team up soon to create a promotional film for her upcoming workshop (which is in Fairhope!!) the AWP Workshop. This workshop is for those adventurous souls who are in the first few years of their journey into the world of professional photography. We can’t wait to show y’all all that is in store with the workshop! For more info & to snag an early bird registration go here!
All in all, the trip was exactly what the doctor ordered. A time to relax, recharge, reconnect, & re-focus on everything that is coming in the next few months. I am so thankful we got to do it!

Today my baby turns one. I can’t believe it. It feels like just yesterday we were bringing this tiny baby home from the hospital & I was freaking out about her carseat—praying the whole way home & making my husband drop us off at the house then meet the nice fireman that I called from the car..in a panic.. to inspect it..
Oh, first time Mom problems!!
Miss B, you are the missing puzzle piece we never knew we needed to make our family whole.
You’re vibrant, loving, and the most GIVING child I’ve ever met. Every time you play, you stick your sweet, tiny hand out, offering whatever you're playing with to Momma, or whoever is near. You've never snatched things or held things like they were yours alone. You have such a giving heart.
You have auburn colored hair, just like me, even though your Daddy is convinced it’ll turn blond soon. I love seeing that hair all over the place in the mornings, like a little sprite has come in during the night and brushed it all akimbo.
Your smile and laugh can make any day brighter and has brought so much joy to our home. Plus, those 8 teeth you’ve got are just precious to look at, though I remember they weren’t so fun to get. You are such a trooper for smiling through getting those teeth.
You’re the best reason for under-eye circles that I’ve ever had, although I sure am glad you’re starting to sleep a little better lately.
Watching you wake up, that little booty in the air..then immediately going to snuggle up on Daddy is the equivalent of a dose of sunshine to me. Immediate happiness.
Things haven’t always been easy. Our first three months together, we were just figuring out this parenting thing, and you were figuring out this whole “being a human person” thing..Throw in Colic & a small bout of PPD for Mom and you’ve got some rough days. But we snuggled often, cried together once or twice, and made it through to today’s daily fun.
Little girl, we love watching you explore your world. You teach us so much every day. We have so much more to learn & are so excited to continue doing so with you.
We love you a bushel and a peck..Happy Birthday sweet Bennie!

Hey! I'm Megan. I'm a Pioneer Woman wannabe who runs a videography & photography business along with a household of a rescue pup, turkey hunting husband, and one year old little ball of energy who we call "Miss B." My home is rarely clean, meals most often cooked on the grill or in a crockpot, but the memories we're making are worth it. So glad you could come over for a while.
