• A YEAR IN REVIEW | 2017, PART TWO

    2017 was such a great year that I needed to split the recap up into two posts. While the second half of this year seems like it went by fairly slow, looking back we still did so much! If you missed the first round of recaps for January-June, check them out here. JULY – We started the month with a 5 day work vacation to celebrate the 4th of July. We had our family party on July 1st, which I can happily say we won’t be doing again. It was weird not having everyone over on the 4th and celebrating at the neighbors party instead. In the end, we still…

  • August Is Over Monthly Link-Up

    Does anyone else think of the We The Kings song, August Is Over, at the end of every August? It makes me sad throughout the year when it comes on and I remember the rush of emotions that the end of summer brings. I always LOVE summer, but this year was especially great. We had so much fun, made sure to take weekends off to see what last minute plans came up, and enjoyed every moment. This August really flew by, and we tried to do something water related and spent time with friends, new and old, every weekend. The month started off with the AKP Retreat. I met 25…

  • 26 Things About Me For My 26th Birthday

    Here I am writing my first post as a 26 year old! I celebrated my birthday (which was Saturday) by winery hopping in Virginia with some friends. We had so much fun enjoying the amazing weather we have been experiencing and it was the perfect day to explore. We went to four wineries and I will be sharing about our weekend in a later post. For now, here is a quick video to document our fun time. One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to know other bloggers by reading facts they share. It’s getting harder to think of things I haven’t shared with you all before, but…

    January Monthly Recap: Hello 2017!

    The first month of 2017 is already over and I’m still thrown off by seeing “2017” on emails and blog posts, etc. Anybody else feel like this is the f u t u r e?! It is so weird to me. January was a slower month in the world of Volpe life. I’ve been doing the contentment challenge (you can read my update on the EE blog!), smoothie cleanse, and trying to just be for an entire month…I think it worked! With this extra time I have been engrossed in getting Enchanting Events and Designs ready for 2017 and I finally think we are ready to go! Somehow our URL…

    My 26th Birthday Wish List

    I’m going to start celebrating just for the heck of it rather than celebrating my birthday. I was a little freaked out about 25, but for some reason 26 seems crazy. Me? 26? Like a real adult? I just don’t understand. I am about to officially be passed my “mid-twenties” and I can’t exactly handle that. But what I can handle…a birthday wish list. Instead of focussing on the negative, I am going to focus on the positives and all of the pretty things I think every twenty-something deserves. As I was thinking about some beauties I wanted to add to my collection this year, I started to realize travel…
