    5 Traditions We Have Started Together

    photo: Chesapeake Charm Photography It was a goal of ours to start traditions since we got married last year. We wanted to have little things that we could continue throughout our lives that we could eventually have with our family. Starting traditions is no easy task, especially when you are combining traditions already in place amongst your individual families. We wanted to continue some traditions that we had throughout our lives, but also start new ones that are our own. We had a busy year with some health bumps along the way, but I am really excited about some traditions we have started in the last year. A few of…

  • Year One As The Volpe’s

    I already mentioned it, but this is a sappy week here on the blog. It’s so crazy to me that we have already been married for a year, and I want to take some time to reflect on that. So Monday’s post was all about our marriage itself, today is a monthly reflection, and I have another post for Friday.

I have only been a wife for a little over 4 months, so I…

  • Our First Night Out Together

    I am so excited to be linking up with Sarah and Helene for their first #TotalSocial linkup! The first link up is about “Firsts”! Lucky for me, my birthday falls on Presidents Day or Presidents Day weekend quiet often, which means an extra day of drinking. My 21st birthday was a Saturday, and that meant 3 nights in a row of going out. This was much easier said than done because I am pretty sure the 2 hours we were at the bar after I turned 21 were a mess and I didn’t even want to get out of bed on my birthday. Although I pulled myself up (around 11am)…
