I’ve been excited about this post for weeks! Readers, I can now officially introduce you to my new friend who I came across through my blog. Ladies and gentlemen meet the amazing Rachel. (You can read how we met here.) Most people won’t accomplish half of the things she has in their lifetime let alone by the age of 17 (hello, she’s written and had two books published already!). After meeting this lovely lady about a month ago we’ve been dreaming and scheming about this shoot. It’s a miracle that we got to meet and I’m so thankful we did because Rachel has been such a gift to me! In light of that we wanted to make the most of the time and play big girl dress up. You heard me right. Oh yeah and to put it over the top we decided to go matching. If you’re going to play dress up in a public place it might as well look intentional right!? Not to mention that we were inspired by two of our favorite bloggers who regularly travel around the world in decidedly twin like outfits. I hope you like part one. Part two is coming next week and is quite tulle filled and colorful!
Rachel, I’m incredibly grateful to know you. You’re an amazing woman and I’m always forgetting that you’re only 17 because you’re so mature. I love your exuberance and energy. I love that you have exciting goals and that you are willing to learn and grow. I had a grand time laughing with you and I always enjoy our long chats. You’re a beautiful woman inside and out and I look forward seeing your story unfold. I love you.
