• Our One Year Anniversary | A Letter To My Husband

    This is going to be one sappy week here on the blog, all because TODAY is our 1st Anniversary. Dear Husband, Can you believe today is our one year anniversary of our wedding day? One year ago I was giddy with excitement getting ready with the girls and wondering how the day would go. I wanted to know how you were feeling, if you were more excited than nervous, and if you were surprised by the tequila sign that was your wedding gift. I was counting down the minutes until our first look because all I wanted to do was see you. The day flew by so quickly, I remember…

  • Our Married Christmas Card & Link-Up!

    I am so excited to be hosting the Christmas Card Link-Up today with Mary from Eat Drink & Be Mary! If you sent out Christmas or holiday cards this year, we would love to see them! link-up below and hop around to some others to see the beauty everyone else sent out!

I mean yeah, things actually do feel kind of different, but then many things also feel the same. I do know one thing, I love being Dave’s wife. I have only been a wife for a little over 4 months, so I…

But since today is our 3rd anniversary, I have a letter to my Husband (ah- I love saying that!).   Dear Husband, I can’t believe we have been officially together for 3 entire years now.

  • Happy 4th of July & One Year Later…

    I am so excited that the 4th of July has arrived (well tomorrow it will have arrived). This is my absolute favorite holiday, and now we have even more reason to celebrate. One year ago I woke up full of excitement to begin the cookout at my grandparents, like we do every year. Dave and I gathered all 200 jello shots, put on our American gear and headed out the door. It happened to be very windy so the normal waterfront activities didn’t take place, we all hung out in the backyard, played some games, and enjoyed each others company. Little did I know the day was quickly about to…
