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. ;)


Jetting through June

It is late Sunday evening as I write this (though I’m sure I’ll fall asleep before I publish it), I am editing the last 800 photos from a wedding, and I am sighing as I stare at my very full planner. I miss you, free time. ;) I’m about 5 or 6 shoots away from life slowing down a little bit, and I plan to book almost nothing else for July so I can know what it feels like to nap again. ;) Despite the craziness, we’ve had quite a few adventures in June, and I’m loving the warmer weather!

Here’s a quick update via the life of my iPhone. :)


Baby sister NEEDED to try the Crispy Chicken Costoletta. She’s a believer now.


Summer evening walks are my favorite. I’m so glad we have a cute little walking trail close to our house.


This happy dude helped me on my wedding in Tulsa two weekends ago, and he was pretty excited about the Fuddrucker’s feast we had before we went to work. :)



I bought this rug for $10 and left the tags on just in case I changed my mind, but Jack claimed it in less than 5 minutes.


We finally got to try out Main Event with our Sunday School class last week, and we had a blast!


We definitely want to go back and try the laser tag.


We celebrated our friends Preston & Mikah Friday night and got to catch up with a bunch of our favorites!





Saturday night was another excuse to be around the most handsome baby. ;)


Such a little stud-muffin.




Church was delightful with these cute twinsies. ;)


Andrew and I have grown accustomed to a great rhythm of eating healthy all week and eating delicious food all weekend. Deep Deuce Grill was part of Sunday’s carb fest. ;)


We walked around Myriad Gardens after lunch, because the weather was lovely…and we needed to work off that queso.


We completed the weekend with Coldstone. :) (FYI, we went to the gym this morning.)

Happy Monday! I hope to be back to normal blogging and free time in July. ;) Hope you all are having a wonderful summer! :)
