Really good. And really hard at times. But, the hard times are what break me down and make me focus on what matters. Grace woke me up at 4am and wanted to be held and played with all morning. She’s sitting in my lap right now as I type this. OK, she wants to tell you all something….

I love her. More than I could possibly explain. I told my life story to 30 new friends yesterday and when I got to the part about having a baby, I was speechless. All I could say was, “everything changed.” I am so grateful to have friends like Gina who capture Grace the way I see her. Oh, this melts my heart! Last night at the Casey-Isaacson house…
Now, you can see why it is going to be sooooo hard to leave this afternoon for the next week for the Making Things Happen Tour. Emily, Gina and I kicked off the 2012 Tour yesterday here in Chapel Hill and are headed to Atlanta, DC, New York and Boston now. I haven’t been away from Grace overnight ever, so y’all give me extra hugs when you see me on the road! But, I have to say that I wouldn’t even dream of leaving her for this long if I didn’t know with all of my heart that the work we do is important. It’s that important. I can’t wait to see everyone and watch your journey’s begin! The 2012 May Tour is completely SOLD OUT, but there are a few seats left for the fall.
And, to kick things off, we launched a NEW Making Things Happen website yesterday!!! Yahoo!!!
Fast forward an hour now and Grace is happily napping while I finish work and pack. She’s so cute when she sleeps! A little peek into what’s been goin’ on around these parts:
Grace is nearing 6 months old and grows faster than kudzu! I write daily letters to her here.
Oh, my heart!
She is my favorite.
My family came to visit last month, too. This is my 94 year old Grandma Bunny!
…and doing branding webinars. We only have 4 client spots left for the year, by the way. Read all about it here and win a seat to our Summer Branding Series!
We’re in the beautiful thick of print prep for our fifth issue of Southern Weddings, aka V5. Emily Ayer and the SW ladies and I are SO excited about the editorial content we have cookin’! Our calendars are packed with exciting shoots this summer. It’s going to be our best issue yet!
I finally buckled down and wrote my first digital book, The Challenge! I took the very popular Challenge series and put it into an active workbook format. I’m just releasing it for clients right now and am so excited to have it complete!
Aaaaaand…. I’m working on my own new site, blog and brand! You can get a behind-the-scenes peek into my inspiration for the brand on my Pinterest. It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait to share the goodness ahead! On my front porch yesterday with Em.
Phew! OK, time to pack. God is good. Really really good, friends. Thank you for all the encouragement you give me to just be me and follow the narrow path. I’m so grateful and can’t wait to hug many of you this week on tour!
