One of my favorite combinations. Food, fun and photos. Capturing a lil' cookin' and camaraderie at Sur la Table with Chef J.D for the February Uncork Networking Event. Each guest received jar of finishing salt from J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works and The Tasting Room CityCentre paired three different wines for each course.
life + style photo experience with Christi | a love story
A cowboy meets a dancing angel in Houston, Texas! From the shooting range to dates walking on the beach, these two found something special in each other and have decided to walk a lifelong journey together. No matter how high the tide or rough the waves, they plan to lift each other up and grow together. A love story just washed up to the shore . . . Meet Mindi & Jeremy
"I didn't know if it was a real date." He asked if I wanted to go to a shooting range. It was a good choice because I was excited yet a little nervous, but it gave him the opportunity to teach and encourage me! After the shooting range, we went to dinner and I remember thinking, "Ok, so if he pays for dinner then that means its a real date." But he paid with a gift card! I was thankful we didn't start "dating" right away because we were able to really get to know each other and establish a friendship first. *It all happened quite perfectly. Friendship, excitement, faith, love, forgiveness, and prayer are just some out of many ingredients that hold us together.
On our first date, I was just surprised she said yes since she doesn't really like guns and I took her to the shooting range! Every time a gun fired she jumped and I thought she was going pull a neck muscle! What has ended up being a joke between us is that because I used a gift card at dinner, Mindi wasn't sure if it was really a date cause even though I paid, I used a gift card and she didn't think that counted as me paying...
The thing I love most about Jeremy is his loving spirit. He loves and protects me like it's his life purpose. I also love his teachable spirit. He is constantly growing and desires to be the great man God has called him to be. Jeremy brings my goofy and playful side out of me. From the very beginning of our relationship I was %100 myself. He is a natural encourager. When I am down he lifts me up and always makes me feel better! The miracle of a relationship is getting to know yourself better and what needs to be healed or cut out.
I love Mind's easy going nature and worldly innocence. She brings out my leadership and playful sides! I live to lead, support, and encourage her in everything!
