He Calls Me Pumpkin


Last week I crawled out of bed at my usual 5AM and scrambled to dress. Zip Dan off to work- then off to the coffee shop with one of the most-respected men I know.

Yes sirree. I’m married and still go on dates with my Dad. Granted, it’s often at strange hours – 6:30 AM for instance,  but nonetheless, married or no, nothing could replace them.

One thing I love about my Dad (Papa to those in the know) is he always makes time. If you say you want a coffee date- boom- it will happen. Through years of business, family has always been first. I have not a single doubt that dad would drop everything for a chat even after I’ve moved out and have a wonderful husband of my own.

In recent years I’ve pestered Dad with many questions – from economics, faith, politics, ethics, and business management. He speaks from many years of successful entrepreneurship and when he talks, people listen. This morning we talked of nothing and everything. Debt, Investments, Politics and happiness.

I love you Papa.

    This is such a sweet tribute to your dad, Christa! And the obvious honor and respect you have for him is a wonderful example of the fifth commandment–and the fact that it does not come with a time table or expiration date!

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
