I use way too many exclamation marks, but I'm really just that excited!!!! I want to know what moves your heart. I say "that's so funny" quite a bit, but it can mean a number of things. I am a lover of donuts and tea. I floss every night before bed! I love the idea of being spontaneous, but rarely do things unplanned. I am the youngest of four girls, but I'm taller than all my sisters. I would love to open a cafe someday. I am fascinated by the bridegroom God and his ravished heart for all of humanity

    Did you hear?! Stephen and Julia are ENGAGED! Here’s how it happened…(I love this picture of the happy couple, btw. So…happy! haha).

    Julia was visiting Stephen’s family in Santa Cruz at the time. In a few days they would be flying out to Taiwan to teach English. But because they had talked about it before, Julia thought Stephen would propose there. Little did she know that Stephen had something up his sleeve (literally! ok, more like in his pocket) for their hike that evening : )

    So here they are, far far away. The rest of us were trying hard to catch up so we wouldn’t miss anything, but stopped, bent down, and pretended to be taking pictures of the flowers when Julia looked our way. This was hard work, but I have to say we did pretty well- she had no idea!

    We hiked for about a mile before the path wound down and led us into this beautiful secluded beach. What a perfect place to propose! This moment was so sweet and I am so honored to have been a part of it.

    Finally, Julia sees me (Hi, Julia! : )) and yells, “who is that?!” I lower my camera down and give a huge smile. That was the cue for the rest of us to pop out..SURPRISE!!

    Even though they were in their hiking clothes we wanted to take a few shots they could remember this season of their lives by. Julia, you look gorgeous even in your hiking gear. No seriously, you really do! : )

    Julia and Stephen, I hope you guys are having TONS of fun exploring the streets of Taiwan, ENGAGED! I will be joining you in just a couple of days so I hope I get to see your lovely faces! : ) Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day. Bless you both!

    2. YOUR PICTURES ALWAYS MAKE ME FEEL SO MISERABLE BEING SINGLE. But I love your photography so so much!! Seriously, your pictures convey such emotion. That is something I have a lot of trouble with.
