Give Thanks

We’ve had a rough couple of weeks. From sickness to overworking ourselves to being way too busy…it’s been fairly chaotic. Today though – we’re pushing the pause button and feeling super thankful for how the Lord has been blessing our little family. Today the pace is slower, the food is everywhere, and the blessings are overwhelming. There is such comfort in dwelling on the happy thoughts God gives us. He is so good. :)


Happy Thanksgiving, loves! I’m so grateful for your sweet friendships and encouragement. I hope you all are having the most wonderful holiday!


Happy Thoughts – November

This month is pure crazy and full of stress, but it’s also full of happy, happy thoughts! I am counting my blessings to keep the stress at bay. ;)

-Fall leaves on the way to work.


-Christmas shopping. (Cannot. Stop.)


-Laugh-out-loud dates with sweet friends.


-This nephew of mine, sculpted by God himself. Yes, he’s a real baby – not a perfect doll. ;)


-This verse.


-The coming of turkey and mashed potatoes in one week. :D


-This beautifully bound, finished planner that is just under 3 pounds (full post coming soon). ;)


-This forever snuggler.


-This handsome man who decided to see how we feel about goatees for No Shave November. :)


What are your happy thoughts? Here’s one if you’re lacking some – tomorrow is Friday. ;)


Random Monday

Long time no blog! I promise my life should be slowly returning to normal soon, and I will be less spastic in posts (and life in general). For now, how about a list of completely random updates?

-The CaitPhoto world has been mildly exhausting lately, but I’ve been working with some serious cuties. ;)











-I got to catch up with this babe at the zoo Saturday in between my shoots. I love me some Gabby!


We witnessed the chillest of meerkats. Haha.


She’s the cutest.


-My parents treated us to Cheesecake Factory for lunch yesterday, and it suddenly became the best. day. ever.


-The quickest way to convince myself to deep clean my bathroom is by giving Jack a bath in there first.


-The man at Staples this morning told me my 2016 homemade planner was too thick to bind. *sigh* After I trim it down a bit and get the Staples man to work with me, it’s going to be one lovely, laborious work of art. ;) I’m not selling the planner on Etsy this year because things have been too busy, but I hope to give you guys some free printables in the next couple of weeks!


-Last week I started to crumble under the seemingly overwhelming amount of things I had to check off my to do list. I may have let some stress-induced tears escape my eyes, and I definitely had a few pitiful conversations with the Lord. And then I saw what happened in Paris. It’s funny how selfish and wrapped up in our own little worlds we can become without even realizing it. My busy little schedule and stresses seem meaningless now. Sweet people in Paris, we are praying for you!


“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.” -2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

Love you all! Hope your Mondays are lightning fast. ;)
