Congratulations Kristen!


Hello hello all you Ten on Teners and happy July! Speaking of, how in the heck is it July already?? phew seems like time is flying by this Summer and I am getting excited for next weeks installment!

It has been quite awhile since my last post in this space. I have so been enjoying the contributions of my dear Sister in law and friend Kristen the past few months. I know you guys have too. She is one A-mazing photographer and has such a passion for this project! I love all of her ideas and especially the great interview series she has been hosting.

But I could not resist popping in here this evening and gushing a bit more about Kristen. This past weekend she completed her very first Marathon here in Seattle and I am so over the moon proud of her! This woman trained tirelessly for the past six months rain or shine with her two very young boys in tow for most of her training runs. I honestly am in total awe and admiration for all of her hard work.

Kristen and her husband Kyle post race, looking radiant!

I am so continually inspired by you Kristen, by your dedication and courage. Congratulations on your accomplishment! I am deeply grateful for the ways that you bless me including with this project. I love you so much and am looking forward to the next big adventure in you life!!

Thanks everyone for letting me brag a bit, I knew you would all be so proud of her too! I hope you all have a wonderful Fourth of July weekend. Enjoy your loved ones and take lots of fun pictures!

xo,
Rebekah
