Happy June! It’s Summer y’all!
I’m really excited for this month. The other day Jamie and I realized that this is the year that we’re learning to work together. If you’ve followed along with my half marathon journey, you’ll know that before we started training for this, Jamie and I could not work out together. We butt heads too much, both of us wanting to always be in control and not to be told what to do. When people find out I’m a wedding photographer, they always ask if Jamie second shoots with me, and almost every time we respond by looking at each other, laughing and saying no. But this month…
This month we’re running a half marathon together (!!!), and not just running in the same race, but running side by side. And we’re building a chicken coop in our backyard (I’m Jamie’s assistant) and I feel like we’ve finally figured out how to work with each other with kindness and grace! We’ve chosen not to take things so seriously and learned a lot about each other. I’m truly excited to continue to do things together!
