Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created. In the Art of Marriage, the little things are the big things… It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon, it should continue through all the years. It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the crowd. It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family. It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways. It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor. It is having the capicity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. It is finding room for the things of the spirit. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner. It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best.
Shoutout to all the girls out there trying to love themselves in a world that’s constantly telling them not to.
Anyone else ready for it to be Friday? 🙋🏻♀️ I woke up sick (thanks kids!) and just can’t bring myself to adult today. Luckily, I have a good man that’s out in the world bringing me home DayQuil and a Booster Juice. That’s love. • • • #ADVENTUROUSSTORYTELLERS #adventourouslovestories #emotionoverperfection #belovedstories #firstandlasts #loveauthentic #theradinlove #RADSTORYTELLERS #radlovestories #goldenlovestories #LoveInThePNW #couplescollective #authenticlovemag #WILDROOTCOLLECTIVE #LOVEANDWILDHEARTS #loversofthelight_ #dirtybootsmessyhair #muchlove_ig #shootandshare #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildheartswander
gen·u·ine⠀ ˈjenyo͞oən⠀ adjective⠀ -truly what something is said to be; authentic.⠀ ⠀ —⠀ ⠀ This topic has been on my mind lately. In this new social media day and age it so easy to share our views and beliefs with just a click of a button. In the past few months it’s been a common theme of people, small shops and influencers preaching kindness, acceptance and supporting each other as women.⠀ ⠀ —⠀ ⠀ Here’s where the problem begins. So many of these woman click that post button or share that story then in the same breath turn and go about their day spewing out hate and negative comments about people. Now don’t get me wrong, I get that sometimes we need to vent or won’t always love something about someone else’s personality, blog, business, artistic styles etc.. I’m human too and found myself guilty of not being in control of my own insecurities and being unkind. But there comes a point that it becomes a habit. An everyday thing. A second nature to be two-faced.⠀ ⠀ —⠀ ⠀ Guys!! You don’t have to like someone to be kind and actually really mean it. You can not like them and still not talk shit! Support one another like it’s your day job cause it doesn’t cost you anything. It does you no harm to spread love. To be excited for that person chasing their dreams, or that mama rocking it. So be genuine in your love and support. Especially to the women around you! Babes supporting babes. People supporting people. Genuinely. ❤️
Taking full advantage of @chilliwacksunflowerfest while it’s here. I have to say, if you are on the fence about going, GO! It’s more beautiful than you are expecting and there is no shortage of things to do. Last night I took my daughter along on a shoot with her friend. We enjoyed the beauty of nature, ate ice cream, played at the park and on tractors and even bought a cute little pumpkin to start our fall decorating! 🌻
Ever look at your baby and find them so flippin’ adorable that you want to squeeeeeeeeeze them as tight as you can while you clench your teeth so hard they hurt?! If so, you might be suffering from "cute aggression". It’s a thing.
Anyone else stay up way too late bing watching Ozarks last night? 🙋🏻♀️ . . . Side note: COUPLE GOALS ⬆️

Sweet little Lauren, you clearly got your mama’s beauty! Daddy better keep his eye on you.
Could I even call myself a photog if I didn’t take a picture like this?! But seriously guys, their eyes are amazing. It was a must have shot.
Baaaaaaaaby shark do-do-do-do-do 🎶 Anyone else’s kid make them listen to this song on repeat? And that other song about that lyin’ ass Johnny?!
Dancing by the river with your best friend at sunset. I loved shooting these two and their big beautiful family. So much love & happiness radiated from all of them.
