If you follow me on social media, you may have seen me talk about an upcoming trip to Arizona I have coming up! Well, I leave tomorrow, and cannot wait! About twice a year, some of my closest industry friends and myself plan a little getaway to catch up, explore, and work on some new projects! This time around we chose Scottsdale, Arizona and I couldn’t be more excited!! Ever since I got to go to Arizona last year for an engagement session, I have been SO in love with everything it has to offer. The warm weather, the stunning landscape, and all the hiking trails just make my heart skip a beat! I will be doing a recap of the trip when I return, but for now I am going to share a few things we will be doing on our Arizona getaway!!

Our plans for our Arizona getaway!


  1. Explore Scottsdale! We are excited to explore old Scottsdale, and take in everything it has to offer! Our air bnb is just a trolly ride away so we plan to take advantage of this!
  2. Sedona for a day! I shot Rachel + Eli’s engagement session there back in November, and immediately fell in love! I cannot wait to go back and soak up those amazing views once again!
  3. Spring Training Game! We are excited for some baseball, sunshine, and probably hotdogs! 😉
  4. Kelly + Andra are launching their Template Collection!! Ya’ll, follow the link ad check this out!!
  5. I will be creating content for my new blog launch! Follow Bloom and Wander on social media for all the upcoming launch fun!!

Happy Monday, friends! It’s the beginning of the week and you know the drill! It’s time for the 52 Lists Project week 12! Today’s prompt was to list my best qualities! I’ve never been good at writing things about myself, but I jotted a few down to hopefully inspire you to do the same!!

My Best Qualities


  1. I’m Creative. I’ve always been creative as long as I can remember, but what is SO special is that my career is based off of creativity! I get to wake up and do what I love everyday!
  2. I’m Kind. I’ve always believed in being kind to everyone, and while I am obviously not perfect, I do try my best to always make everyone feel welcome and included.
  3. I’m Motivated. I wasn’t ever motivated in school when it came to homework, and who really was? However, when I transferred to study business and marketing I really excelled, and realized it was because I was so passionate and motivated about the subject! This carries over into my business as well!
  4. I’m Loving. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and am the kind of person that tries to please everyone. This is both a blessing and a curse, but I am loving towards everyone I meet.
  5. I’m Hard Working. This goes along with number 3, but because I love my business and what I do so much, it makes me work so hard. I love waking up in the morning and being excited about what I get to do that day!

    I hope this inspires you to make your own list of some of your favorite qualities!
