My Favorite Things {Lake Wylie Lifestyle Photographer}


July 1, 2013

Hi there! Welcome to the  journal about our lives, travels, fashion, and style. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Amy.


One of my very favorite things to do is travel.  And since we’ve had children our travel has turned mostly into family visitation, which is nice…just not the same.  However, this past April Will (my husband) and I had an opportunity through his work to travel to California WITHOUT our children for 5 days.  It was glorious!  Yes – I did miss my children, but the time that I got to spend with my husband at a 5 star resort was priceless.
As you could imagine, I took so many photos…but these two are my favorite!

    I love to travel too and it is pretty glorious going without the kids. You definitely realize how busy you are when you get away! Like you I always miss them but it does not get in my way of enjoying myself!

    Amy I am sooo jealous! 5 days at a resort sound like heaven! Sure beats a sushi dinner! 🙂 Love the lines and the texture of the first image.
