Hey.

Rob treated us girls to a surprise! A show at the Fulton.🤗 Ok, I may have guessed what the surprise was a while back.😬 But I was still surprised by the thought behind it all.💕 And Mikayla had no idea what we were going to do, so that was nice. She & I both love surprises. . . . . . #family #lancasterpa #habitandhome #musicaltheatre #visitlancaster #ig_motherhood #lancastermoms #letthembelittle #mom_hub #documentingmotherhood #dailyparenting #ohheymama #our_everyday_moments #inbeautyandchaos #clickinmoms #momtogs #thesnapsociety #uniteinmotherhood #letthekids #childhoodunplugged #thehappynow #momswithcameras #littlestoriesofmylife #thepursuitofjoyproject #mytinytribe #stopdropandmom #honestmom #candidchildhood #momentsofmine #stillswithstories

💙 ad| Oh how I’d love to find a spa day under the tree this year! I feel as though the last few weeks have been an utter whirlwind so the chance to relax and unwind would be perfect! Here’s a little throwback to a fabulous mindful moment at @thermae_bath_spa - we were treated to their Spas Ancient and Modern package which includes a spa session, a visit to the Roman Baths plus lunch or afternoon tea at the Pump Room. A perfect gift for anyone who needs a little pampering in a beautiful city!

The view of a woman as shocked as you by the following... *whispers* Christmas shopping miiiiight almost be done. Almost. Maybe? I know, right? There’s guaranteed to be the last minute rush and the sudden 3am panics (anyone else?!) but i think we’re almost there! It’s been crazy working extra hours and running my biz these past few months in the run up to Christmas, so talking 5 mins for a coffee in the morning by these windows is pure bliss. So, go on then. Finished your shopping in November? Or like me, still frantically snapping up a few bits and pieces? (I won’t tell if you don’t 😉)

Ha ez a csodás karácsonyi dekoráció mesélni tudna... 😄. Elmondaná, mennyi szervezéssel és előkészülettel járt, mire megszületett a varázslat. Bizony, ha két elfoglalt anyuka szeretne valamit közösen megvalósítani, ahhoz sok csillagnak együtt kell állnia. Úgy érzem, megérte, mert örülök, hogy végre személyesen is megismertem @pastellmama Csengét, és látjátok, milyen szépet hoztunk össze együtt, amit végül le is fotózott nekem. Ma tökéletesen illik is az #adventifotonaptar többi képe közé. ✨ . És most meséljetek, nektek mennyire könnyű összeszervezni egy-egy találkát? 😁

I wasn’t going to decorate or set my christmas tree up this year. I haven’t been feeling very festive, and it seemed like a lot of work for nothing since I’m the only one who sees it. some days it takes all of my bandwidth just to get out of bed and go to work, so spending time and energy decorating feels like a waste. it’s just a fake christmas tree. who cares, right? but on sunday as I was cleaning and organizing at home, I saw the artificial tree and decorations in the closet, and I had a change of heart - 15 minutes later, the tree was all set up. honestly... I was surprised how happy I felt once it was done. I thought I’d rather just sit this year out than go through the motions, but every time I come home and plug the lights in, it brightens my mood instantly. maybe it is just a fake christmas tree, but the warm glow makes my home so cozy, my grinch heart grows 3 sizes whenever I see it. also, if you’re in the market for an artificial tree, I highly recommend going with a ridiculously skinny “pencil tree” like mine. guaranteed to garner comments like “your tree looks weird, why is it so skinny?”, it’s perfect for decorating small spaces and easy storage.

It was early morning at the bustling, tiny coffee shop in town. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I was sitting alone at a community table editing away. An older gentleman, probably in his late 70’s, walked up to me and asked if he could sit down. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I said “sure, go ahead”, and he sat down across from me.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ His eyes peered at my computer. “So what are you studying for?”.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I answered, “Oh, actually, I’m not studying. I make wedding videos.”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ “Oh, okay!” He pondered for a moment... “So you can take all the pictures off my phone and make them into a video?”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I chuckled and gently nodded, “Something like that.”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ “So, do you do funerals too?”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ “Funerals?” I asked.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ “Like with the pictures on the screen?”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ “Oh no, I don’t do that.”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ He exclaimed, “You should! A money making opportunity!”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I kindly smiled and went back to my work.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ This man clearly had no idea what I actually do.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ But in that moment, it wasn’t my job to try and convince him that my sitting behind a computer screen in a coffee shop isn’t just making a slideshow.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I think if we’re shouting to the masses, we’re kinda missing the point.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ The point of our art/craft - whether it be wedding videography or really any other art form is not to appeal to everyone.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ You are not everyone’s cup of tea, and that’s okay!⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ The world is full of people who, no matter what you do or say, may not like you. However, the world is ALSO full of people who will love you for exactly who you are.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Find your people and say - “I am here to serve you.” When we think about serving our people well, that’s when true growth can happen.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ 𝐁𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐜𝐮𝐩 𝐨𝐟 𝐜𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞’𝐬 𝐜𝐮𝐩 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐞𝐚.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
