Ok, so it’s no secret on this here bloggity that I am a sentimental soul who LOVES celebration. And this week in October, for really the rest of my life, will be the week of celebration. While most people in my community are anticipating the week in the fall where the infamous PSL comes out (that’s the Pumpkin Spice Latte for all you out there that don’t lose your mind on PSL day), I will be anticipating this week every year. You see, it’s Fall Celebration Week. Or FCW as I have lovingly decided to call it. They can have their PSLs and I will have my FCWs.
It’s FCW because this is quite the week of celebrations in my life. Let me just break it down for you.
We started this week with October 11…
October 11th= my half-year anniversary of gettin’ HITCHED! Whoo hoo! We are total pros at this point and handing out free marriage advice for anyone interested. (free because there’s no guarantee that it’s any good)
October 15th= Yeah that’s right, my handsome hubby’s BDAY! I get to celebrate this man on Thursday of this week (and every 10/15) because he is the bomb.com….double click.
October 16= MFP and Dallas Anniversary day! This is the day I moved to Dallas 4 years ago and started Mary Fields Photography. A very significant day as it reminds me of the crazy leap of faith I took and all that God has done in it. This Friday I will celebrate 4 years of business and over 75 weddings! Not to mention countless portrait sessions and millions of images. Time flies when you’re having fun!
October 17th = Engagement-aversary Day! Yep, this day 1 year ago, I was just focused on doing a family portrait session when the hubs pulled one over on me and knelt to one knee instead. Talk about a great day and a wonderful surprise.
Oh wait…we aren’t done.
October 18th= I realize it’s getting a little mushy but I don’t know that I care. This is the day, 2 years ago, that I got set up on a blind date with a handsome blonde and my life changed forever. Meet Jimmy-Aversary day!
Now, you might be thinking I’m a crazy over-celebrator and well…you wouldn’t be wrong! I definitely over-celebrate but then…I’m ok with that. Don’t worry, we aren’t going to throw a party for each one of these events. More just take some time on that day to reflect and to thank God for the reminder of His goodness. So very thankful for my life, the way it has unfolded over time, for my business and work in Dallas, for amazing clients that allow me to do what I love, for a wonderful husband and most importantly for the evidence of a God who cares deeply about me.
So, in the name of over celebration and FCW being instated,
I Say, Take Me Back!
