Hi there! It's Friday and that means that it's time for (drumroll...) #FridayIntroductions
I'm Demi! Wedding Officiant. Marriage Coach. Minister. I met my husband 21 years ago and he's managed to still be my favorite person after 18 years of marriage.😍😜🥰
Despite struggling with years of infertility, we were blessed with 4 children -- our oldest is a college sophomore and our youngest is the coolest first-grader ever!😎
In a former life, I was an elementary and high school Home EC teacher and certified etiquette instructor. I now serve as a graduate student mentor at one of the best online universities in the nation. To date, I've helped 200+ teachers (mostly women) earn their graduate degrees while balancing work, family, and life.😆🤩
For the past 10 years, my husband and I have served as church planters and most recently as campus pastors. We've helped to launch two satellite church locations that serve communities in GA + FL. I'm a licensed, ordained nondenominational minister with a niche for marriage and women’s ministry.🙏🏽☺️
I'm also currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Psychology with research interests in contributing factors to relationship satisfaction; intimacy and communication in relationships; and self-expansion in marriage.😍😘
As a way to collectively include all that I am and have to offer to others...and out of my love for cooking, baking, shopping, and traveling with my family, I launched @ladyofthehouse.co.💃🏽💄💋(stay tuned)
I absolutely LOVE entertaining family and friends and can often be found knee-deep in the planning phase of any reason to celebrate.🥳🙌🏽
I am a romantic at heart and can confidently say that I'm called to help couples prepare for, celebrate, and cultivate the marriage they most desire. Grace + friendship is a HUGE part of who I am. Inspiring couples to make love last is what I do!👌🏽🥰
I’d love to know more about you. So, let's get this #FridayIntroductions party started! 🎉 Comment below! 💬

I could not let this day end without thanking Felicia @feliciavphoto, Wally @delostudios, and Kimmy @kimmy1908 for their hospitality, graciousness, and service. Today's photoshoot was a blast and I cannot wait to see sneak peeks in the coming days. I'm also excited for the day that we get to collab at the same wedding. How cool would that be?🤩
Calling all Jacksonville brides! If you're in need of a photographer, MUA, or wedding officiant we would love to work with you!☺️

In Can Bordoy, we are proud to think that we have built something eternal and timeless. We are not just talking about the resurgence of this emblematic building that has taken us in, but about our united family who have made it their home. Klementyna, our Lady of the House, and Alessandra, from her butler’s team, in this picture, know this all too well. We invite you to read our last narrative: The Hosts of Hospilaty.

Cheers to the week ahead! May you make the most of it 💛
Lady of the House Rules:
1. Remove those high stools because I'll climb up onto them and onto the bench then into the sink.
2. ALWAYS tuck the dinning chairs all the way in because I will climb them and hop onto the dinning table. Unless you're sitting on a dinning chair in which case youre doomed coz I'll climb it.
3. Remove any boxes or toys that I can move myself whether it be by carrying or pushing towards the tv unit, coz I'll climb that too and go behind the tv And destroy whatever I get my hands on.
4. ALWAYS close the bathroom door, even if it needs air ventilation after a hot shower, just don't, I will enter without permission and ruin the bathroom.
5. Quiiieeetly open the dishwasher so that I can't hear it, then quuuiiieetly pack or unpack the dishes.... careful with the clanking of the untensils..... otherwise I'll come running for it and... well you know what happens when dishwashers are open.
6.when doing the laundry, especially packing, do it quick and don't worry about what goes where, throw it in the same cupboard coz I NEED YOU to hold me when you're doing the laundry. Every.single.time.

I signed up for a meal train the other day. Maybe that’s not a big deal to you, but to this girl it is. I wanted to show up for my precious friend who just had a baby, even if I knew that meant it wouldn’t be with homemade lasagna and a made from scratch dessert. Instead, I made a point to get all the snacks and things mama and big sister can munch on easily because I remember how thankful I was for those when I had a baby. I told myself that showing up to love on mama and be of service to her was more important than where my food came from. So what if I didn’t bring a meat and 3 or a southern casserole made with love in my kitchen? I SHOWED UP WITH FOOD AND LOVE AND ENCOURAGEMENT.
Wouldn’t you know that sweet big sister was SO DANG EXCITED about those $1.50 protein packs I bought for her so she can get lunch by herself while mama recovers. 🎉🎉 That’s right, I kicked that dang fear and shame of my not so great kitchen skills to the curb and showed up anyway. I am the lady of the house and I am happy to embrace that title, even if it looks different than I think it should. With Walmart bags in hand I showed up to support my friends and I am SO GLAD I did!
What’s a lie holding you back that you need to say NOT ANYMORE to? Share it and know I’m cheering you on!
So I had an amazing night last night getting to know two friends better after they offered me some spare tickets for a show at #standrewshall
I'm gonna brag about how cool my friends are and how lucky I am to know such great people. I had a rough week and needed an escape, and they invited me along and treated me like we'd been best friends all our lives. I really needed that, and the night turned out so epic. One of those adventures only possible in Detroit.
We went to a fancy dinner in #corktown at a restaurant called #ladyofthehouse where we enjoyed maybe the most amazing food of my life, and I definitely need to go back for more.
Then we got into the VIP section at the venue for free (saved $100), and enjoyed a kickass show from #thedeadsouth whom I wasn't familiar with but they were so wonderful!
Drinking, dancing, perfect music, cool friends, and exactly the adventure I needed. Always hunt the good stuff and be grateful for the blessed life I live.
Nothing like putting on a killer little black dress and strutting through town to make you feel like a million bucks!
My new record, Rodeo Queen finally comes out in June! ❤️ “COWGIRL IS AN ATTITUDE, REALLY; A PIONEER SPIRIT, A SPECIAL AMERICAN BRAND OF COURAGE. THE COWGIRL FACES LIFE HEAD ON, LIVES BY HER OWN LIGHTS AND MAKES NO EXCUSES. COWGIRLS TAKE STANDS. THEY SPEAK UP. THEY DEFEND THE THINGS THEY HOLD DEAR. A COWGIRL MIGHT BE A RANCHER, OR A BARREL RACER, OR A BULL RIDER, OR AN ACTRESS. BUT SHE’S JUST AS LIKELY TO BE A CHECKER AT THE LOCAL WINN DIXIE, A FULL-TIME MOTHER, A BANKER, AN ATTORNEY, OR AN ASTRONAUT.” – DALE EVANS
I wrote the lyrics to this song in 20 minutes in my pickup. •
I was in the middle of being bullied, while stuck in a dark and abusive environment. •
I learned a lot and found the old cliche to still be true....music is so healing and empowering! •
