He sent her flowers to her parent’s home and she quietly read the card and started to cry. She looked at them and smiled. Melissa loves wholeheartedly and doesn’t hold back. She gets touched by the small things and treasures the people she loves. And one can’t help but treasure her back. Which Derek does. Although he won’t tear up as easily as Melissa, nor will he lay out his affection so unabashedly. But his love is shown with strength, with protection, and subtle little moments, and it’s no wonder that all the women in his life (that being Melissa, his mother, and his sister) all adore him. Their dynamic when it is just the two of them complements one another completely and they have a special kind of love.

As we arrived in Davenport IA we immediately began scouting locations for the next day. Davenport is a very cool city situated right on the river. A plethora of historical buildings and charm, coupled with modern city architecture and hustle and bustle. Not to mention a BILLION cool spots for photographs. When we met with Ashley & Ben that evening they were so excited for what the weekend would bring. There was a buzz in the air and absolute happiness. With the locations marked on our GPS for the next day, we headed to the hotel for a good night’s sleep.

Only they did it with ease. It wasn’t that the day didn’t mean alot, or that they didn’t have an amazing day planned. The fact of the matter was that Christa wanted to marry Josh, and THAT was the only thing that mattered.
So yeah, we’re sort of spotlighting ourselves this week. I mean, we do write the blog so I’m pretty sure we can toot our own horn if we want to, right? Because blubox is super duper fly and has gone through a little bit of a make over. This redesign is going to have you cheering for sure, and if not – maybe a contest worth $850 will!
As you approach the front door you’ll probably feel the bass from the music and hear the sounds of laughter, “My Lipgloss is Poppin”, and the spray from an aerosol can of hairspray. It’s like stepping into a fun, care-free world of vibrant colors, pumping music, and some glitter to boot. Every single person wears a smile, and upbeat describes more than just the music tempo. It’s the tempo of their business, so you best get on the party bus and not be left behind – because CoCo Bongo will rock your hair – AND your world!
