It's time again for this months 10 on 10 lifestyle blog circle. I am so thankful for this circle of crazy talented women. Every month I am reminded to share some of my favorite image and here lately this has been the only way I've shared personal images on my blog so I'm so grateful to be a part of this circle. Plus these ladies are crazy talented. Follow your way around the circle after viewing my images by starting with my friend Charlotte's gorgeous Autumn post.  

This month was busy for us because of my business ramping up for the fall season but we managed to steal away several times as a family and enjoy each other and friends and family. So thankful for these days with my family. Hope you guys are having a great Autumn and season of Thanksgiving!

It has been way too long since I've blogged and I'm excited to share a new project I'm involved. This year has been such an incredible year for me so far. I've had the opportunity to develop some incredible relationships with other photographers. I've been able to mentor with 3 of the most amazing and talented women in the industry and gotten to know so many incredibly talented artists along the way. One of those ladies is my friend Sara of Sara Garcia Photo Art. We met at Joy Prouty's Wildflower's workshop a couple of months ago and she recently invited me to join a monthly blog circle with some other seriously talented women. So every month on the 10th of the month we'll share 10 of our favorite lifestyle images and at the end of the post you'll see a link to go to the next post and see that artist's images until you make the full circle. I can't wait to get to know these ladies through their images over the next few months and I hope you'll join us as well! So grab a comfy seat and enjoy so beautiful imagery! I haven't shared many personal images on my blog in a while so I decided to share a few favorites from 366 and a few that I haven't shared. Enjoy!

When my heart is overwhelmed >>> Mamarazzi

"From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I." Psalm 61.2 This is totally my verse right now. I feel like I cry out this verse to God all day long. Motherhood is beautiful and it's wonderful but it is also tiring and overwhelming. I feel overwhelmed on a daily basis but I am reminded through God's word that He is so much more than I am and can carry this heavy load for me. "Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved." Psalm 55:22. Today as I was snuggling my littlest one before his nap, my heart felt overwhelmed but in the best way possible. Not in the 50,000-disasters-happening-all-at-once kind of way but in the I-can't-believe-I-get-to-be-your-mom-I-love-you-more-than-anything-ever kind of way. And in that moment, my mind when right to that verse that I cry out all the day long and I said "Lord, My heart is overwhelmed right now, with your goodness." and I praised the Rock who is higher than I. I am so thankful for this gift of motherhood. And thankfully God gives us these little moments to realize what a blessing it truly is. Now to some photos that really have nothing to do with what I was talking about before. Ha! I just had that on my heart and wanted to share with the mamas. :) Yesterday we went on a little day trip to Cades Cove and had the best time as a family. My kids LOVE to be outside and enjoying God's creation so this really hit the spot for us. It was so nice to leave the to-do list at home and just unplug for the day together wandering, exploring and getting our feet wet. I hope you have a great weekend with your family!
