Toggle Commented 2 days ago on Marriage & travel at the homesteady
Thanks Jenni!! :)
Woo hoo, arm tattoos FTW!! I loved trying this one out because I'm worried sometimes I change my mind too often. This seemed like the best way to really *visualize* the outcome :) Good luck with your new ink!!
Yes!! Taylor, you totally get it. It sounds like your honeymoon was absolutely amazing!! And if compromise and working together can lead to more gelatos, I'm all for it :))

My brother sold some of his belongings before moving in with us this past summer, including an old, '70s-bronze bicycle -- to me! Luckily, he cut me a deal and I kept it for $40, but hated the color. I had read online about spray-painting bicycles, and figured I'd give... Continue reading

Did you know you can write and draw on French macarons?! I used these markers for the first time to draw gemstone designs on a batch of macarons I made over the weekend. I could barely fall asleep last night, I was so full of macaron decorating ideas! And feeling... Continue reading

More on Instagram There's something of a hair rennaisance happening in these parts. When I was in high school, I dyed my hair near constantly -- red, black, dark dark brown, blonde highlights -- you name it, I did it in a friend's kitchen. That pattern halted in college, and... Continue reading
