vacation, photoshoot, & raw food

This is a HUGE 3 part post.

Part one: Vacation  

Charlie and I spent the last week in Florida visiting friends, family, and the beach. We celebrated our one year anniversary in the place that we fell in love and got married.

However, sadly my camera died and I realized that my charger was 7 hours away...not worth it.

but not before I shot this.

We went hiking with mom at Robinsons Preserve. 




We went out to celebrate Schrocks Birthday! Surprise Party Style.

I love that your hair color (kind of) matches the color of the dessert. :)
