It’s Stephen’s golden birthday today! He’s 27 and for the last 10 years that we’ve been together, I have learned a lot of amazing things about him and his family! He totally won me over by his charm and caring heart. It doesn’t take long for you to realize how incredibly talented and truly creative Stephen is. There are people in the world who are naturally good at certain things. Those people embody what it really means to be an entrepreneur always dreaming of what’s next. Stephen totally exemplifies that and so much more.

Stephen and I had been looking forward to our Charleston trip from the moment Shawn&Lauren told us they would be flying us out for their East Coast destination wedding. So many of our photographer and videographer friends have raved about the beautiful sites, delicious food and amazing Southern hospitality. Our trip to Charleston was that and so much more!
Breakfast has become our favorite meal of the day. It all started when we were first married. Three months after our wedding, I jumped in full time with Stephen to join forces. I had just graduated from college and quit my part time job. We had this routine that we would wake up at 6am and go to the gym before starting work. When Wednesday rolled around, we were both exhausted and wanted a day to sleep in past our 5:30am alarm. We quickly dubbed Wednesdays as our “date day” and we would go to a favorite breakfast place in our hometown of Chico or be adventurous and try someplace new. This weekly tradition lasted nearly a year. From then on, breakfast has always been our favorite time of day to go on a date when we get a chance.
The majority of last week was spent out of the office for an ongoing commercial video project we have in Napa, then a wedding following that in San Francisco. In between, we celebrated with a little destination aniversary trip!
Yesterday was a big milestone for us. We celebrated our four year wedding anniversary! With each year, it seems as though it passes by even faster.
Fear can paralyze you. Making you feel small. Making you want to turn and run away. Fear will always be there, it’s how you react to the fear that matters!
San Francisco is such a dear place in our hearts. Last week, we gathered with over 100 leaders who are a part of The Rising Tide Society for a week of brainstorming and encouraging one another!
Let’s be real this morning. Spoiler alert: we’re not perfect people and sometimes we fight! Hurting each other’s feelings, being misunderstood, not communicating well, those are all parts of any relationship and especially true in marriage! For Stephen and I, sometimes this comes up more than we’d like to admit, because unlike most couples, we’re together every minute of every day (almost)!
This post happens once a year for us! It’s what we like to call our Annual TréCreative BTS (behind the scenes) post!
Panama holds a very special place in our hearts and it was such a fun adventure to travel back again for the second time together!
