WILLIAM OLIVER DANENHAUER
——— it is your birthday. ———
Will, you are my best friend. I love that we can be goofy together, blast t-swizzle with the windows down, take spontaneous trips to target, watch chick flicks together, and celebrate each other!
I like to think back to when we first met we were so awkward around each other and REALLY flirty. Really, our friendship was made up of flirting and super deep conversations. it made no sense but it worked.
and now, being with you is like being home. which sounds so weird but it’s my favorite thing about you. Even when we first met there was a warmth about you that drew me in. I felt safe with you. And now, being with you my normal and being without you SUCKS. Because not only are you caring and sweet and loving you are also an incredibly strong leader in our relationship.
You are always encouraging me to spend time with and put all my trust in Jesus when you know i’m turning to you. that takes a lot of wisdom and strength which you definitely have.
thank you for being brave enough to choose joy when the world is pressuring you to choose darkness.
you are the most joyful and caring person I know. You are always asking me about my day making sure i’m okay and always ready to celebrate the good things that are happening and have happened.
William Oliver you are a beam of sunshine.
God has made you a very bright light in the darkness. thank you for being home—a safe place, for me and I know so many others.
Happy Birthday Babe! you are a gift! 🖤🎉😘😘😘
Do you feel like you’re growing? I’ve been in “seasons” that felt so stagnant, but to get out of those “seasons,” I had to plant seeds. And I say “seasons” because I feel like we can put ourselves in prison of seasons, lies of satan saying it’s our season of setback, our season of doubt, our season of growth. Are you planting seeds with God? More importantly than planting seeds, Are you planting yourself long enough to reap the produce. If we don’t plant seeds with God, we won’t produce with God. We’ve grown custom to immediate gratification. We give relationships 3 months to see if they will work. We give a job 3 months to see if we like it. We volunteer at a church for 3 weeks to see if that’s “where God called us to.” We give prayer 2 prayers to see if it will come true. God, may I plant seeds with you. May I plant myself long enough to see them produce.
morning hunt / hike w/ @gavinbolin23
Came 15 yards from a Tom with a last minute spook.
A good routine break. A good soul igniter. Sharing ideas and dreams with @gavinbolin23 , a buddy who won’t only listen, but also encourage and invest. Find those friends.

some of you know that i’ve recently started up a photography page—and some don’t (for the ones who don’t: I started a photography page, check it out! @clairagreshamphotography)
I wanted to give a little shoutout to my page and also let y’all know that I will be posting ALL of my photography on there and make this one (my “personal” account) more about my life and the things i’m doing & love doing. photography is a big part of that but I just thought it would be a lot easier to keep them separate that way I can post more shoots on my photog account and more day to day & life style things on this one!
anyways I would just love it if y’all would follow my photog account! especially if you want to keep up with my photography! I will be posting lots of special offers, deals, sales, and giveaways and other things that you won’t always know about here!
I hope to post new photos daily on @clairagreshamphotography to show you new & old shoots that you might have missed in the past!
so excited to share new things with all of you! 🖤🥂🎉 thanks for reading my (always) extremely long captions 😬
Happy Earth Day, earthlings. 🌎

Celebrating 4.20 the only way we know how— in our favorite hemp fiber tees🌿🌿
Why go Hemp? For starters, it's amazingly comfortable, breathable, and cool to the touch. But it's also wildly better for the environment that the use of other virgin fibers. Resistant to pests (no pesticides needed), naturally antimicrobial, and resistant to UV, the production of hemp is both quick and efficient, leaving as little an impact on the environment as possible.
Oh, and our hemp tees are Repreve Certified. This means they utilize PET from recycled plastic bottles to build a performance strong, moisture wicking fiber. Recycled PET = less waste in landfills & less air pollution from production of virgin PET.

“you are most yourself when you’re wrapped up in your purpose, not your position.” - Steffany Gretzinger
Our purpose is worship. each and everyone of us was created to give God glory. that doesn’t mean falling on your knees every sunday, or passionately raising your hands at every worship night. Choosing to live like jesus doesn’t require radical interactions with him. Choosing to live like Jesus is understanding that his presence however big or small is radical always.
I think when we worship, however we worship, wether it’s by singing, praying, or just rejoicing in God’s goodness we are fulfilling our purpose. worship is a remembrance of how small we are and just how big God is. it’s so easy to live life for us. to forget that we were put here to love like he loves, serve how he served, honor what he did and share that sacrifice with the world.
Worship is a remembrance of our purpose, a celebration of God’s goodness, and the inspiration to live and love like Him.
I am so honored to know people who work so hard to represent all of these things. Who lead worship and created an atmosphere for the spirit to move and impact greatly. I am so proud of the Farmington FCA worship team and admire their faith in Jesus.
The #ranchrubyretreat has officially begun! I cannot wait for the rest of the gang get here. We kicked it off with the best breakfast in town @arsagasdepot 🍳 looking forward to a weekend fun and friendship!! #fayettechill
Finding awesome lumber is relatively easy when you have a great supply chain, but finding awesome lumber with an even more awesome story, now that’s the good stuff! This white oak spent a century submerged in the White River serving dutifully as a fish trap for a small settlement of folks here in Arkansas. The 1960’s saw watercraft such as canoes becoming very popular with local adventurers and the White River was a popular spot. Having grown tired of having to free people and their boats from his fish trap, the third generation farmer decided to remove the trap and put the lumber in his barn. Years later I bought this lumber and much more from the farmer’s son. This special material has patiently waited for the right client and now it’s go time! We can’t think of a better client for this special story than @fayettechill! #reclaimed#woodworking#arkansashistory#whiteoak#arkansasmade#reclaimedwood#fayettechill#maker#build#design#shelving#wood#madeintheozarks

The past four weeks have been a rollercoaster. With the exception of a much needed day at Pinnacle Mtn, I haven't had the chance to really get outside and enjoy this spring weather. Transitioning between jobs has kept me busy, and while I'm still not set on a spot yet, I'd rather feel out some options early than realize four months down the road I chose the wrong establishment and wasted my time. After all, I left my previous job because I wasn't happy there anymore. Happiness is priority! With that being said, yesterday was awesome and so was this sunset at Flatside Pinnacle in the beautiful Ouachita Mountains. My first time here and it was everything I had hoped for. One of those places you look forward to and then realize it is better than you imagined. Took this shot just as the sun was dipping over the horizon. No better therapy than nature.
While this photo might not be the best it comes with a story. Walking along the trail I was flooded with so many memories, this trail will always be special for many reasons. As I kept hiking and shooting I was walking on the trail which is pretty narrow, stopped to shot a couple frames of trees and lost my footing, falling about 5 feet. I landed on my right side knocking the wind out of me for about a minute. After catching my breath I looked at my camera, thankfully it was perfectly fine due to me instinctually protecting it with my body as I fell. 🤦🏻♀️ I stood up and wiped off the mud and took this shot. I ended up with a sore back, bruised ribs, a sprained finger, and bruises all over the right side of my body. While the falling sucked I was able see this beautiful creek from a different perspective. I’ve been in a pretty rough season but I’m realizing that it has been a lot like this day. You fall, get a bit banged up, but rather than staying there get a new perspective, the outcome might be even better than the easy route of trying to ignore and avoid the struggle. #kodakgold200

I trekked out to the Buffalo River yesterday morning to capture the early season Milky Way, taking advantage of clear skies and a new moon. Only after I got back home did I realize this is International Dark Sky Week, and this is a great reminder that dark skies can be closer to home than you might think!
If you come out to Meteor Guitar Gallery tonight for the ORSA Showcase, I’ll play you a quirky love-song I wrote in front of this fireplace. ...And if you bring me coffee, I’ll even stare into your eyes while singing dramatically like I’m a punk rock singer in a 2007 music video and you’re the cutest girl on the cheerleading team. K, thanks. Bye.
