You may have noticed there was no blog post last Friday. That's because it was Independence Day and when Erik's home from work, it's a holiday! We actually had the most chill, low-key 4th I've ever had. We met up with my parents and brothers for dinner and made a minor attempt to see the Chesterfield fireworks at a random field on the side of Ironbridge Road. I say that because we had no idea whether we'd be able to actually see the fireworks or not, and it turned out that we really couldn't. It was a bummer, but we watched what we could through the trees and resolved to see better fireworks in Richmond next year at Josh's house.
SPEAKING OF JOSH'S HOUSE.
My brother just bought his first home in Richmond. It's a cute little, 100-year-old, renovated townhouse. So this weekend he had a housewarming party and invited the whole family over to hang out with him and his roommates.
It was a nice, slow weekend of seeing family, watching Netflix movies, and trying new restaurants. It was exactly what I needed after shooting four weddings in a row this past month! Now I can gear up for this weekend's wedding and have a bit of a break before things really pick up again in the Fall. I'm excited for the business, but I'm definitely learning to especially savor the non-wedding weekends.
Prepare for a beautiful wedding on Wednesday!
