Why I Got A Tattoo

Hey guys! So I did something this weekend I’ve wanted to do for about 10 years. It took time, courage, and planning…but mostly courage. I got a tattoo; a small one that means the world to me && I want to share with you why! Warning it's a mushy, emotional, personal story… For those of you, who know me, know that I’ve been planning and contemplating this tattoo for about 10 years. The tattoo is my grandparent’s handwriting; my grandma’s “love” and my grandpa drew a heart. My grandparent’s mean the world to me. To make a very long story short...Read More

Happy Love Day!

Happy Valentine's Day loves!  I hope you all enjoy your day and it's filled with lots of love! Outfit Details: Dress (Old Navy) | Jacket (Old Navy) | Boots (Target-similar)  I get a twofer every Feb 14th - not only is it Valentine's Day but it's also my anniversary and this year it marks 5 years! We aren't big "Valentine's Day celebrator" people and we typically tend to stay away from any public scene on the 14th. Instead, we celebrate a few days before or after Feb 14th and it works out just fine! Last year we went to the Lost Pines Resort and...Read More

5 things you might not know about us

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching I thought I would share with you a few little facts about me and Steven! Both of our outfits in the photo above are from Old Navy We went to the same high school but never really knew each other personally - we only knew of each other from a distance. Steven actually told his friend on time, "see that girl, I'm going to marry her one day" (only slightly cute). We went on our first date 8 years ago on Valentine's Day. Steven picked me up in his father's car and we went to...Read More

2018 IS HERE!

Happy New Year everyone!! What are your plans, hopes, and dreams for the new year? Growing up, New Year Resolutions were very important in my family. At dinner we would read through our resolutions from the previous year and discuss the ones for the new year. While I never understood why I had to do this over the years it has become clear. Set goals and strive to achieve them. In other words, finish something you start. At work I have a daily, weekly "to-do" list and goals for performance - why wouldn't I want that in my personal life. So, with not having been held...Read More
