Shout Outs


Well guys.... 

Nashville has flooded.

14 inches of rain in 2 days- the highest amount of water to EVER be recorded. (And if you think I'm talking like a meteorologist, you are right.)

The rain was like a conveyer belt across the state. It just KEPT coming...

It was insane! And still is. Thankfully our place sits up on a hill so we did not have any trouble. But others are looking at extensive damage that could take weeks (months!) to clean up. 


Some of our streets have turned into rivers. 

Homes, Schools, downtown businesses are completely flooded.

Thousands are without power- some with no place to go.


Nashville people: My thoughts and prayers are with those of you whose homes are under water. Thankfully the rain has finally stopped and we can start to pick up the pieces...

Everyone else: Never underestimate the power of water.

Noah: Seriously, where's your ark when we need it?

What a great way to add elegance to a rustic setting. 

Speaking of rustic elegance... Neillie, a very talented event planner in Birmingham (with a wonderful blog- To the Gathering) did a special post about rustic, elegant weddings. She asked if she could use my wedding video in her post and ofcourse I was honored!! I also sent her a few more pictures from our wedding weekend.
