Just Like That

Just like that, the year is half over. WHAT are you doing, 2015?! Slow down.

Just like that, I’ve been hanging out with this handsome man for 8 YEARS. Yesterday was 5 years to the day since he asked me to marry him, so yes. We feel so old. ;)


Just like that, Andrew and I have been to Cheesecake Factory 3 times in the past month. Judge away.


Just like that, my dog is turning 3 years old this month and is no longer terrified of the kiddie pool. I love this face so much!


Just like that, I have a new snacking addiction: goldfish. Can’t. Stop. Eating.

Just like that, our big adventure trip is less than 3 months away! It still doesn’t feel quite real yet, and I’m in serious plan mode to get those excursions booked. ;)



Just like that, I’m done with shooting weddings for a while, and I’m really, really excited for a little break. Time to plan some summer fun. :)

Just like that, my nephew is almost 3 months old, and his face is still the cutest thing you’ll ever see.


Aaaand just like that, this week is halfway over. Happy Wednesday! :)



Dear Papa Angelo’s,

Thank you for your pizza and your garlic knots. You bring me such joy.


Dear Husband,

Thank you for the “happy end of shooting weddings and 5 years since our engagement” flowers. You are the cutest, and I like you. :)


Dear CaitPhoto clients,

You guys are the best, and I’m a little obsessed with you.







Dear Netflix,

I’m not crazy about your new look, and I wish you would return to simpler times. But hey, thanks for the entertainment while I edit. You’re a gem.

Dear Bruce Jenner,

I started going by Cait first, and I would consider it a personal favor if you would pick a different name or move somewhere out of the spotlight. You’re messing with my branding, dude.

Dear Kristi Belle & Worm,

Let’s go back to the zoo, please! Thanks for making me laugh until I cried and for not changing your minds mid-order at Sonic. ;)





Dear Wes & Molly,

Thank you for letting us swim in your pool, eat your food, and love-smother your dogs. It feels like summer now. ;)



Dear Inside Out,

You clever little weep fest. You were so emotionally exhausting, but so brilliant. Bravo, Pixar.


Dear Jesus,

Thank you for your love and grace and purpose in everything. It’s good to know you’ve got this. ;)


Thank You Notes

Time for some thank you notes – Jimmy Fallon style.

Thank you, Jurassic World, for fulfilling all my jurassic hopes and dreams in one brilliant movie where Chris Pratt proved he is cooler than anyone else alive and that raptors have souls.


Thank you, Deep Deuce Grill, for supplying the world with a queso so beautiful that I wish to be buried in it.


Thank you, Jack, for not escaping my death grip in order to chase and murder the cute rabbit that found its way into our backyard yesterday. I imagine the rabbit thanks you too. And thanks for the constant support while I work.


Thank you, Sonic Drive-In, for offering large drinks for 99 cents before 10 AM to further feed my diet soda addiction.

Thank you, Andrew, for having great hair, a great work ethic, and a great love and respect for food. We should go on a date. ;) Did you say Cheesecake Factory? Sure!

Thank you, Netflix and particularly The Office, for keeping me entertained while I edit thousands of photos and slowly drift into madness. You keep me from completely losing my mind.





Thank you, Oklahoma weather, for being so unpredictable that I can’t really plan anything 100%. The rain is refreshing and all, but could you bring it on days when I don’t have shoots scheduled?

Thank you, CaitPhoto world, for coming close to wrapping up the busy-ness. It’s been real, but I’m extremely ready to remember what it’s like to be bored.

Thank you, Australia & New Zealand, for being there to look forward to on days when I feel overwhelmed and exhausted. T-minus three months. :D



And thank you, sweet blog readers, for sticking with me during busy days and meaningless posts. High fives all around. ;)
