2013 :: First Quarter Wrap-up

Wow what a first quarter of 2013, the good and the bad! But mostly good!


01: Moving

We found out are moving back to Little Rock, Arkansas. We are SO excited but there is SO much about Texas I’m going to miss. Mainly the people from work and church but we are also just going to miss our daily lives here. However, being near family (mine and his) is a priceless gift that we could not be more grateful for. PLUS I can’t wait to get to know and spend more time with our new church family.

02: Website launch

Well y’all already know about this one. This is a biggie! This new site and blog is something I’ve been dreaming of for awhile and I’m so happy it’s finally live. Sometimes I forget it’s already done and I’ll go check my site out just to be sure and I’ll be like “oh yeah! It is true!” Silly, I know!

03: Neenah Award

I was SO thrilled to find out I won bronze for the entire south region in the Neenah Paperworks Contest. Ya’ll I was speechless when I found this out and was literally on cloud 9 for like 3 days straight. WOW. Special thanks to my sweet friend and paper rep from OK Paper, Blakeley Warner, for the nomination.

04: We are going to Europe

You’ve probably already seen this mentioned on here before but it’s a big deal and it’s a really big deal when you start booking and paying for things! We are SO excited but with so many other things going on (graduation, moving, new jobs, etc) I don’t think about it as much as I would expect. My dad always says part of the vacation is the anticipation leading up to the trip! Always so true!

05: Featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper

Being featured on a website you literally visit everyday is a big deal folks. I honestly could not believe my eyes. I absolutely LOVE my business cards and to have them featured on OSBP is a dream come true!

06: Wedding invitations and more

I’ve been busy, busy designing at work and freelance stuff. (I’m so lucky to love my day and night job!) But there’s nothing more exciting than seeing a pretty wedding invitation come together perfectly!

Life is really great right now. Yes, it’s a little stressful mostly with moving, transiting jobs, back problems and being sick. But the good so out ways the bad. I am so grateful!

Also, I think I’ll spare you any kind of April Fools jokes. You’re welcome. Mostly because I haven’t had any luck with them today. I tried to tell Matt his jeans looked like bell bottoms (it drives him crazy) but still it wasn’t a good one.

Happy April ya’ll!

  1. Sounds like you have a lot going on! These are beautiful… and you have a beautiful website!

      Hi Amber! There is a lot going on right now! Hopefully after we move things slow down a bit :) Thank you so much for your kind words!
