How To Pose For Pictures In Public Without Feeling Self-Conscious

My New Year’s Resolution was to blog three times a week, and we’ve all seen how that’s been going this month! Sorry, friends — life has been so hectic, but I’m trying to prioritize the blog and writing multiple posts a month like I used to! Today’s post is answering a question that I get a ton when I tell people I’ll pose for pictures anywhere. How do you do that without being afraid of making a scene? 

It’s a good question. Before I started blogging, I’d take pictures around other people, but if there were huge crowds or I felt like people were staring at me, I’d immediately stop and try my best to fade into the background. I’m pretty outgoing, but I didn’t want people to think I was self-centered or obsessed with social media or narcissistic. 

Why You Should Say Yes To A Wedding First Look

Happy Wednesday, everyone! (I’ve started feeling like this introduction is a bit of a copout, but I wish everyone Happy *insert day* so often that I can’t do anything else.) I hope you’re having a lovely week — the past few days have been a bit harder than expected for me, but so many of you have reached out to offer your prayers and given words of support. I don’t have the words for how much that means to me and my family, so thank you.

This Is The First Thing To Do When Planning A Wedding

HAPPY WEDNESDAY! I’m normally not excited when we’re still so far from the weekend + I’m exhausted (caffeine for days, y’all) but this is the first post of my #WeddingWednesday series, and I’m pumped. I talk about marriage all the time, but I haven’t spent a ton of time talking about our actual wedding. It was featured on A Practical Wedding, and that’s probably the only time I’ve written about in-depth. But I polled my followers on my Instagram stories, and the verdict was that you guys want to hear more about wedding planning, so here we go!

Why It’s Not A Bad Thing To Just Feel “Okay”

I told a friend recently that it’s a weird time to be online. To be honest, this statement feels evergreen — when is it not a strange time to live your life publicly on the Internet? But recently, there’s been a push to be authentic (something I’ve written about several times) without being too authentic. No one wants to make the people around them uncomfortable, right?
