We can only thrive when we pursue our uniqueness without hesitancy. Stop caring what others think, get out there and live. Live past your fears, risk loving even though it’s vulnerable, be open to change yet seek the very core of what is true. We were made for living:  just be real.

What do you do when, two years later, you’re facing your own writing. “I’m scared,” I told my older sister in a recent conversation, “I’m scared.” She looked at me and said, “If someone came up to you asking about this, what would you tell them?”

“I would tell them to go for it.” 

Thrive. Pursue. Risk. Fear. Love. Change. Seek Truth. Stay real.

All of our Air BnB hosts were incredible! Every house we stayed in had tea and biscuits when we arrived and a hot breakfast the next morning.

The week prior, we had been talking about knocking comfort zones down with our Air BnB host in London, England.

ooooh, aaah, do you, uhhhh, think we could stop, so, uhhh, I could take some photos of those cows? -me every few miles

yeah, no problem! let me find a place to pull over. -brianna, world’s best travel buddy

“I was swandering if you would look up for a photo!” Brianna loved my dad jokes.

When you don’t have a boyfriend, you call your mom from a phone booth in Ireland.

5 ways to stay fit while traveling

Sweat beads dripped down my face as the sun toasted me from above. I felt like a piece of bread forgotten in the toaster, getting crispier by the second. Music shuffled on my phone and a song by The Script began to play.

With every beat my pace quickened, as if I was racing the song tempo. My lungs burned as I pushed to run one more hill. Well now that I’m at the top of the hill I guess I can run down this road. Might as well finish the loop. By the feeling of death in my lungs and cramps in my core, I was sure I had put in a good eight mile run. Nope, it was barely three miles.

Balancing both travel and a healthy lifestyle can be tough, so I’ve come up with 5 ways to stay fit while traveling that have helped me over the years. I hope you find them helpful too!

5 Ways to Stay Fit While Traveling

ONE. First things first. Always take workout clothes and shoes with you. No matter how long or short your trip. No excuses.

TWO. Most gyms offer a week or month pass. If your home gym isn’t in the area, get a week or month pass to a local gym.5 ways to stay fit while traveling by destination wedding photographer Paige Overturf. Nashville Wedding Photographer.

THREE. Don’t want to spend the money? Run outside: through neighborhoods, up stairs and hills, or find a park with trails to run. There are several workouts you can do without weights that can be done in your room or outside. [Pinterest is your place!] Be safe: read park reviews online if you are unfamiliar with an area, especially if you plan on being alone.

FOUR. Shop at the grocery store. Eating out gets expensive and is not practical for healthy eating. Ok, ok, so grocery stores aren’t practical for those of us with a big sweet tooth, darn you soft chocolate chip cookies. As a photographer and blogger, I spend hours and hours at coffee shops – sometimes I opt for an iced green tea over an iced latte to keep the sugar down.

FIVE. Drink plenty of water. Traveling gets you off your normal routine and sleeping habits. Drink your water. It will effect your sleep, energy, skin, eating habits and mood!

Currently writing this from Local Coffee in San Antonio, Texas while I’m in town for several family sessions.

Yes! You read that correctly! Today I am going to talk about how I purchased a flight for $5.60, got upgraded seats [bonus! have the whole row to myself], and free wifi.

Currently 34,225 feet in the air on my way to San Antonio to do a few photo sessions. So excited to be photographing these two girls again!

Ok, so let’s talk about how I purchased a flight for $5.60 – and how you can too! Hopefully this will create the opportunity for you to visit family + friends, go on a new adventure, and visit somewhere you’ve never been to before!

+ Reward miles. Sign up for the free rewards program. Every time you fly, your account collects miles leading to free tickets [$5.60 security fee]. All you have to do is enter your rewards program number when you book a flight. Easy!

+ Credit card bonus miles. Most airlines offer 30,000 – 50,000 bonus miles when you sign up for their credit card. Some airlines require you to spend $3,000 in the first 3 months. I have only signed up for two, American Airlines and United Airlines – at the time, neither of them required a spending minimum to receive the miles. So, I signed up, made a $20 purchase and paid the $89 annual fee. $109 got me two round trip tickets in the United States with American airlines. Unless you fly often, cancel the credit card before the next annual $89 fee is due. If you cancel via phone, often times they will ofter the next year for free if you stay with them another year.

+ Free Wifi. Navy Federal offers free passes [12, I believe?] if your credit card is approved. There is also a way to hack the system…but I’ll leave that you between you and google.

+ Upgraded seats. When you get to your gate, ask the gate agent if the flight is full. If the flight is not full, wait to board last. Waiting in the airport can have it’s perks. Before boarding, check with the gate agent about moving to a seat with more leg room. Most times they charge, but occasionally, you’ll get a free upgrade.

+ Stay hydrated. When the flight attendant goes through the cabin with drinks, ask for the whole can. Heck, I’ve even asked for extra cookies and crackers. What can I say, girl’s got an appetite.

**Credit cards can be sticky business. The only time I use an airline credit card is when purchasing a flight from that particular airline. It will save you baggage fees, upgrade seats and boarding, and often times get you double miles. Pay it off immediately.

Extra proof the system works, my friend Tarra – a piano teacher in Gig Harbor, Washington – signed up for the United Airlines credit card and put all her bills and spending onto that one credit card. She then used the miles to fly out to Guam with me last fall. We spent the week exploring caves, swimmings with a sea turtle, and running down mud trails to the ocean. And today, Tarra is making the blog look HOTT from her photo session at Sunset Beach in Gig Harbor, Washington last summer.

    We’re your biggest fan and so incredibly grateful you came out to Texas!!  We had so much fun making even more memories this evening.  You’ve photographed out girls on the stunning beaches of Guam, in Japanese tempels and even in hidden palace ruins deep in the Hawaii jungle ….you are truly amazing, so incredibly talented and your sense of adventure endless!  Even the possibility of rattlesnakes or coyote didn’t seem to bother you as dusk set in!!ReplyCancel

It was a rainy day on Watts Bar Lake in Knoxville, Tennessee. The backup plan had been set into motion, nothing was going to stop Jeff and Tina’s backyard wedding with Chipotle burritos and cheesecake, followed by a night of bar hopping in Knoxville’s Market Square. The cutest little downtown area!

There were no sparklers or bubbles to be find when it came time for Jeff and Tina’s grand exit. Instead, they ran down the dock and jumped into the lake. “We just want to have fun,” Jeff said, “really enjoy our wedding day with friends and family.” And that is just what they did!

    Making the best of the weather — such a fun wedding!ReplyCancel

“Terrified but ready. Or maybe I’m not even ready. I just know I need to jump. Jump into living again. I’m scared to death of change, of not knowing, of the what if’s. God, give me the strength to let go of the things I white knuckle. Give me the wisdom to know what choices to make and the strength to actively take those steps.” journal entry February 12, 2016 6:32AM.

Five hours later, with a car packed full of clothes, silverware, my computer and houseplants, I left North Carolina and started my new life in Virginia Beach.

10 Ways to Decorate With A Low Budget. East Beach Carriage House, Norfolk Virignia. Destination Wedding Photographer. Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer. Nashville Wedding Photographer. Franklin, Tennessee Wedding Photographer.

It’s been a year and I have absolutely loved living in this 500 square foot carriage house. Initially, I came to Virginia Beach to visit a friend who lived in an East Beach carriage house. She told me about a carriage house for rent two streets over, so I called. The owner said it had already been claimed, but their tenants would not be arriving for two months. Being a stubborn won’t-take-no-for-an-answer kind of girl, I asked if they would rent it to me for the next two months. They even loaned me an air mattress, desk, and desk chair. This allowed me to see if I liked living in Virginia without signing a year lease. Ok, I’ll be honest, commitment is a scary thing. I knew in two months I could move back to North Carolina if I wanted. 

At the end of those two months, I was put in contact with the owner of a carriage house for rent across the neighborhood. This one was fully furnished. Again, my fear of commitment kept me from signing a year lease. If I paid cash up front, they would allow me to sign a three month lease. At the end of those three months, I signed the year lease.

Life is full of roadblocks. If at first you get a no, try again. Be patient, with yourself and with others. Sometimes it isn’t a closed door, but a jammed door waiting to be kicked open.

And now, to the main topic of this blog post…

10 Ways to Decorate On Budget

Invest your money wisely and you can spend it however you want.

ONE. Coupons. If you haven’t downloaded the Hobby Lobby or Michaels app, download it now! I keep the Hobby Lobby app on my phone. Michaels recognizes their coupons, why have two apps when you can have one. Even if my purchase is $0.50, I use a coupon. Pennies add up to dollars.

TWO. Recycle jars. Jars of all shapes and sizes, can’t get enough! Save jars from groceries and use them for flower vases, to keep sea glass in, and for drinking iced hazelnut lattes!

THREE. Sea glass and shells. If you live near a beach, I guarantee you there is sea glass to be found! One piece here and there may not seem like much, but just like pennies, they add up! I have jars and jars from around the world. Don’t have access to a beach? Collect jars of flat stones, colorful rocks, pinecones, dried flowers. Nature has it all!

FOUR. Clearance plants. Lowes and Home Depot always have a clearance section for plants. I joke that my kitchen has more plants than dishes. I purchased a $3 plant with more dried up branches than green branches. But with love and patience, it has bloomed into my favorite plant in the house.

FIVE. Flowers! I’ll go without something else before cutting flowers out of the budget. And the best part, you only have to budget $5 – $10 during the winter months. The rest of the year, I keep scissors in the car to pick wildflowers on the side of the road. Ahh, running through a field wearing a dress, letting the wind blow through your hair, and picking wildflowers. So ready for summer!! Ok, sorry, getting distracted…

SIX. Magazine + newspaper clippings. They make great wall art. Often times a store will offer free magazines. Thrift stores sell old magazines for $0.10 – $1. Browse through and cut out the photos and words you like. Throw away the rest, you will never “need it someday” like your mind will trick you into thinking – think minimalistic.

SEVEN. Rugs. TJ Maxx / Homegoods sell pretty rugs for $15-$30 [and higher, I just prefer to stay below $30]. Colorful rugs make a lonely room feel like home!

EIGHT. Candles. Target clearance, Marshalls and the Dollar Tree. I save my favorite candles for when friends come over or when I’m having a blah day. But, just like flowers, I LOVE having candles in the house every day. The Dollar Tree has candles that crackle for $1. It’s the little things in life. :)

NINE. Recycled frames. Garage sales, thrift stores, or someone simply getting rid of an old photo they don’t want any more. Don’t like the photo or painting? Toss it and replace with your own photo. The frame is still good!

TEN. Baskets + Books. Thrift stores! One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Never devalue something because it has been used.
