there is so much i could write about my dear intern emy.

like how my dog oliver literally attempts molestation on her every monday and wednesday because she smells so good.

and how josiah constantly flirts with her and gathers his shoulders up to his chin when she smiles at him.

or how she has the cutest laugh youve ever heard.

and how ive only seen her use the bathroom in my house once.

or most importantly, what an immense help she is to me in my business.

shes my editing guru. my disc’ing goddess. my ordering queen. my comic relief, my adult conversation during the day, and now… bride!!

ms emy became engaged sunday night to dustin…long time love and best friend. he popped the question on the beach at night (full moon! candles! rose petals! lanterns!) and of course, emy said yes.

i dont know if im more excited for the new adventure awaiting her or if im just itching to get to help with some planning and advice…but i couldnt be happier for my helper.

here she is in all her beauty..dont let her fool you…she tries to play shy but she really loves the camera.

    Michaela - whoohoo!! my future sisinlaw.. shes sooo pretty :) loveyouu emy!

and the full post is here. i cannot explain accurately in a blog post how much this lady you see below means to me. julie is one the happiest, most content people on this earth. she is one of the very best moms and wives you will ever come to know. she speaks wisdom into my life, is a constant encouragement to me in my quest to master motherhood, and she is an incredible cook.

she and aram were married 12 years ago, and they have 3 amazing kiddos who you’ve seen grace my blog before. julie has expressed to me a few times over the years that they were never really in love with their wedding pictures, and that there are no great shots of her in her dress. that is simply not acceptable in my world. it devastated me to think about, and i had to take julie out and get this situation taken care of.

special thanks to marie kelley photography for coming along to shoot, melinda todd temple (julie’s amazing mom) for acting as our hairstylist and putting together the beautiful daisy and burlap bouquet, as well as burcin gursel who assisted us by carrying everything and doing the amazing makeup you see featured on julie’s gorgeous face. if you’d like to contact burcin to do your wedding makeup, check out her facebook!

at this point in our shoot, the kiddos and aram showed up to join in. the kids were in their play clothes, and aram dressed up. it was priceless. love these!!

the best way to end all days is with a hot pair of heels on. ahh shoes.
