I am NOT happy about this weather we are having. It is December … in Washington, DC … it is NOT supposed to be 60+ degrees! How can I really get into the “let it snow”, “have a holly jolly Christmas” season when it feels like May?
We’re kicking off the week with a Maryland engagement session from my fav, Michelle VanTine Photography [submitted via Two Bright Lights]. Vanessa & Adam took to a GORGEOUS sunflower field for their engagement session and the result was beautiful. Michelle called the shoot her “Golden Hour” shoot because of the way the sun danced all over the couple and the field. She was so, so right in naming it this. Check it out:
How they met:
After living in DC for six months, my sister (twin sister, that is) and friends decides that we needed expand our circle and meet some new people. What could possibly be a better place to meet a bunch of fun 20-somethings, who don’t take themselves seriously than by playing a little game of kickball?! The fact that is was also right in front of the Capitol was the cherry on top!
I still remember first seeing Adam, and thinking “WHOA,” but it wasn’t until halfway through the season that our teams finally played each other. It turned out that Adam’s team only had about four people show up, but that didn’t stop them from pummeling my team. After the game, all the of the teams meet at the bar- where Adam stood next to me while we played some drinking games. The poor guy was so bad, that I finally jokingly yelling at him for first portion of the night. Thankfully, he’s a good trooper.
As the night was dying down, my sister whispered to me, “he’s going to ask for your number.” I was completely surprised, because as far as I could tell, I had been yelling at the guy for a good chunk of time, but he did! The sweet gentleman that he is called me the very next day and asked me out to dinner. The rest is history.
When looking back to why I originally joined the kickball league, was to meet people- no one in particular, but just make new friends. Little did I know, that I would meet and find my best friend and love of my life in the most unexpected places. Thanks Kickball!
