{a lemon orchard shoot}

I don't know that I've said it before, but I'm so incredibly lucky to have some of the people that I do in my life. I always struggled making friends before college, but now my heart is overwhelmed with how many people I have in my life. A few of these people I met because of my blog or because of weddings, but I like to think that even if we didn't have these things in common, we would still be friends. 

One of those friends, whom I met last year because of my blog, just so happens to be an amazing photographer. But beyond that, I've found an incredibly close friend in Emily. We just get each other, you know? Not to mention, she is seriously one of the kindest, most generous women I've ever gotten to know. I'm so freaking thankful that she found my little blog and we connected, and now here we are. 

Emily is good friends with my husband as well, and just adores little Olive Duff. It only felt natural that I ask her to take our Christmas card photos for us! I am so excited to send out our cards this year, and I'll definitely share them with you all when I get them. In the meantime, here are a few of the other pictures we took while at the lemon orchards last week. 
Thank you for the beautiful photos Emily! And thank you for being one of my sweetest friends!

Well. You made me cry. For real. My mom saw this post before I did, read it out loud to me, and I totally started crying. Way to go! But seriously, lady, the feeling is mutual. I am also so thankful we met, and it feels like it was so random that I stumbled upon your blog and, of course, the rest is history. But now it feels like we've known each other for years, and that our friendship was always meant to be. I love you! It's always awesome to take photos of you and your family. xoxoxo.

Love your shoes, and Olive! Oh my goodness she is such a cute little puppy. That picture of her running towards the camera is the best.
