seeing double.

There are currently 5 days of April remaining but I never want it to end! I have loved this month SO much! But, before it leaves us for another year, I wanted to share the rest of the photos and the other two outfits from mine and Elexis's "friendship shoot"!

Still, this is my favourite thing that happened this entire month and I am looking forward to doing more (maybe even some for other people?!? - Hi, I take photos!). It was such a fun and hilarious experience - and a pretty exhausting one to photograph myself (but totally worth it!). I felt like I was back in middle school with one of my best friends, acting goofy and trying to match. Those were the days!

Shoot me a message if you are wanting a friendship shoot of your own -  I am looking at you 2018 grads!

Tank tops and Mom jeans: American Eagle.

Floral Jumpsuit: American Eagle (are you noticing a trend?)

young (ish), (sorta) wild, and free (like a bird).

Friendship sessions are ALL I can think about now!

My bestie here, Elexis, suggested that we do a 'friend shoot' and wear matching outfits! She supplied one (as a super sweet birthday gift!), we each picked the same jumpsuit, and I said to bring just an extra outfit. Surprisingly, we both brought a similar 'feel' look. They each showcased our free, wild, and weird spirits! 

Though I don't have a remote for my camera - which means I had to run back and forth to focus and set the timer - this was one of the funnest days I have had in a long time! It was such an awesome idea by Elexis and I want to do more like yesterday!

So, if you're in the area and interested in a friend session, shoot me a message and we can chat about it!!

Outfits:

Elexis: Top and Bottoms from American Eagle

Charlotte: Top - Urban Outfitters | Bottoms - Top Shop

27 - i'm in heaven.

Rhyming is also my jam.

I just wanted to pop on here quickly and thank EVERYONE who made my 27th birthday the best one yet! I have never felt more loved and appreciated by friends than I did this past week. Making friends as an adult has been a journey, but I have finally found the perfect group of friends who are extremely selfless and there for you when you need help. 

I love you all so much (people reading, family,  and my amazing, beautiful, strong, hilarious friends)!

And special thank you to Elexis for the most beautiful cake that I have even been given! :D

let me tell you 'bout my best friend.

I hope you sang that. I definitely did when I wrote it. 

Another post about my incredible, outstanding, extremely attractive husband, Mark. 

Yes, he is pretty. Yes, I am jealous. But I digress.

The thing that I love most about being his wife (other than the fact that I am his freakin' wife!) is the fact that I see a side of him that no one else does. 

Everyone is different around certain people. Most of us act accordingly to our surroundings. For me, that entails sitting still, holding my pee for as long as possible, and doing minimal talking. It is around Mark that I can be myself. 

I have witnessed Mark with his friends, trying to act cool, calm, and collected, but he is really just a weirdo - like me! And I do not use the words 'weirdo' or 'weird' lightly. We are so strange sometimes... and I love it! I love that I have found a person that I can make crazy voices around, have the most stupid inside jokes with, have the oddest and most hilarious dance-offs with, and watch The Lord of the Rings (and Family Guy) with over and over and over (I cry every time - at LOTR, not Family Guy!). It makes me so happy that I am able to be my very strange self with someone who is equally (if not more) as strange as I! 

Mark is my greatest treasure in life and I will never be able to thank God enough for him. Everyone needs a Mark! But you may not have mine. I am not willing to share.

Mark is also the one who takes a lot of the photos of me - which he hates doing but is great at! This time, I wanted to get him in front of the camera - which he hates even more. Also, I am too cheap to hire a photographer and took the photo taking into my own hands. :)

Who is the one person you feel most yourself around? What is the weirdest thing you have done together (if you feel comfortable sharing)?

the greatest month of all!

Ah, April. I have been waiting you.

I am absolutely biased when it comes to my favourite month. April is by far the greatest month of the whole year. No, it may not be the "beautiful month" like May - you are welcome for the compliment, May - but it is beautiful in other ways. 

The month of April is like that first stretch you take in the morning - you sit up, stretch your arms as far up as you can, take a deep breath, and feel/ listen to your body waking up. That is what April is to me. The sound of bones cracking! *sarcasm, sarcasm* But I just love it! Everything is coming to life - the buds begin their process of bursting new life, the grass slowly turns from brown to green, the birds are busy preparing homes for their growing families, and people begin to wake-up from their winter hibernation. It's just so beautiful!

And the very best part of April is ... it's my birthday month!! Yes, this chick in her Sunday best (see photo below to get that reference) is turning a day older! I am sad for this part because I would prefer not to turn 27, but I am excited for the planned and unplanned changes that come with a new age!

I want to know if you are: A. an April baby,  B. an Aries, and C. a person who celebrates the entire month they are born!
