    February Monthly Recap (And Link-Up!)

    I feel like every month I start my posts by saying how quickly the month went by- and this month isn’t any different. Weren’t we just sailing around the Bahamas to start the new year? Is this something that happens as people continue to get older? Time just goes by faster and faster until all of a sudden you have great grandchildren or something? February was my version of a “slower” month. We weren’t crazy busy during the week, freeing up time for us to just relax. That was SO nice. I sometimes forget what it’s like to not be busy, and it’s a rejuvenating feeling. But then again I enjoy…

    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…

    A Year In Review: 2016 Part One

    WHAT A YEAR! The very last week of 2016 is here, my 1SE will be over in just 4 days and we are just about ready for our last adventure of the year. This year has had it’s ups and downs- but in the end I actually loved 2016. A lot has happened to bring us down, and we prayed over so many countries and people as they experienced tragedies, but it seems as if the spirit of love and kindness was able to see some changes. While you/I may not agree with one side or the other on the groups that have come together to fight for a cause,…

    As 2016 Comes To A Close

    Is it is just me or is everyone sitting there wondering how in the world we are already at December 6th?! Another year is almost fully in the books and I am thisclose to saying it has been the best one yet. But more to that when I fully recap 2016. For now, lets take a look at November. The month started with my favorite husband turning 27. He jokes that I care more about this than he did, which is actually fairly true. Birthdays are my jam, especially when it’s his AND when he is still older than me. We kept it pretty low-key this year since we were…

    Here’s To You October Monthly Recap

    We have made it through another month that went by WAY TOO FAST. For real, I think this was the fastest month of the year. I really enjoy October, but this year it just happened in the blink of an eye. Yet somehow this awful election is DRAGGING. Can we all agree that one week from today there will be a celebration simply because it is over?! Don’t get me wrong, I am getting my vote on, but for real, these options?! seesh. This October was a little different than our normal Octobers. unfortunately my favorite trip of the year didn’t happen, but we were able to fill up our…
