This past weekend, we headed to New Orleans with two of our favorite people. It was a fast but fantastically fun weekend. I love that Tallahassee is centrally located and mostly everything in the south is in a 5 hour radius. It makes for quick weekend trips. This was our... Continue reading

Even though it is almost July, already(?), I wanted to look back at the amazing month that was May. I didn't write much in May, which makes me a little sad. But looking back I realized that I have so many great memories that I can't wait to get down... Continue reading

We had a really great month. April treated us right. Here is what we have been up to... in pictures. - I finally got out anniversary pictures back. I was counting down the hours until I could see them, which makes me incredibly inpatient. I talked (and posted) about them... Continue reading

This week has been a little hectic, busy, and one of the best I have had in a long time. We are slowly but surely making some progress on the house, and in turn my life is feeling a little less cluttered and my winter funk is retreating (thank goodness... Continue reading

Last month we celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary! Woohoo! Hooray! Before this one, we celebrated a first, second and third. And of course, I didn't even think to get pictures taken to celebrate the other years. So we start fresh for our fourth year. And every year after this one... Continue reading

All of the sudden Spring popped out and hit us here in Florida. The weather has been perfect, and the pups have wanted to be outside more and more. It is the best time right now. It isn't too hot yet so we get to spend more time outside on... Continue reading

Today Kyle and I celebrated our fourth anniversary! Four years ago I walked down an aisle trying to calm myself down by singing Old McDonald. I was so nervous, I lost my shoe (flawlessly…NOT) heading down the aisle with my dad. Four years later, and we are just as happy/nervous/loving... Continue reading

We had a really good, really lazy, really family oriented February. It was so nice to do a little relaxing and a little traveling all while enjoying time with our family. We had a very low key Valentine's day filled with a day at home and the guy making souffle.... Continue reading

Here are some fun things that I thought were worth mentioning from around the web. Anthropologie is having a sale on their sale! What a cup of tea looks like around the world. My favorite new show, Peaky Blinders! What 30 feels like. Great post, great attitude, great in general.... Continue reading

I think it is a little overdue that I am sitting down to write. The words, the feelings, and the emotions are all there but the want has not been. And I think that is okay. I am not going to write in this space just to write. That is... Continue reading

It has been a really fun, quick, and relaxing month. With lots of slow weekends and coffee dates. So far so good in our house. Here is what we have been up to. Dreaming about a girl's cruise I am going on in August with 11 of the best girls... Continue reading

The holiday season is over, our family is gone (sadly), (and now that half of January is already over) I am ready to think about the new year. While I don't do resolutions, mostly because they have a bad connotation about them and I don't want to set myself up... Continue reading

Christmas was a warm blur of good times with our families, and it was made even more special by the arrival of Kyle's sister, her husband, and our perfect niece. We spent the first week they were here totally mesmerized by everything our little niece did. To say we are... Continue reading

Now that almost all of our Christmas cards have reached their destination, I feel like it is safe to go ahead and show them. This year, I tried my hand at making our own invitation instead of using a template. It felt more creative, and saved a huge amount of... Continue reading

This past weekend was so wonderful. We tried to make sure that we didn't plan much this weekend so we could spend some much needed time around the house. We wrapped gifts, took night walks to look at the neighborhood lights, and slept in both mornings. We took a break... Continue reading

The tree is up, finally! And it is beautiful. Lights are mostly up on the house, and the rest are to come this weekend. Christmas cards are out (with only one spelling mistake, I call that a win). The 23 days of Christmas is going smoothly, and I just need... Continue reading

I love Christmas. (I also can't think of a single person who doesn't love Christmas, but that's not the point.) It is just such a magical time of the year. It gets colder outside, people seem to be a little more jolly, there are beautiful twinkling lights, and most of... Continue reading

Today is the best of days to be thankful. Not only because it was my goal this year, but because we have so many blessings to be thankful for. Thanksgiving is about being thankful for the harvest you were blessed with over the year, and I can certainly say that... Continue reading

This weekend was one for the history books, folks. It was full of lots of friends, fun, and rain. Rain didn't reallly contribute to the fun, but it did help with some really great sleep and a lazy Saturday. I had a really great late birthday party with some of... Continue reading

We just got back from a small vacation to Mexico. We made it back in one piece (mostly). We are still feeling like we are swaying on a very large boat. But we had a wonderful time, and it was my first time in Mexico. I was pleasantly surprised. The... Continue reading

And we are off. For the next five days, we will be relaxing by pools and sipping cold drinks on the way to Mexico. Island time we will be on. See you on the flip side. Continue reading

Today is my 24th birthday. I love birthdays. I wait for them all year long, and relish in the Happy Birthdays all day long. But this year I am settling into the fact that I am getting older, and it isn't as fun as it used to be. It is... Continue reading

Today, my brother turns 19. How is it possible that he is 19 already? The years are passing by at warpspeed, and I can't catch up. It seems like just yesterday I was his age and he was just starting to drive. Of course, he didn't want any help learning.... Continue reading

(As good as a family photo can be with these two.) October was a month of checking things off of my to do list. Now that a couple things are marked off, my mind is swimming with new things to fill their place. So this month, I am trying to... Continue reading

It didn't register until I looked back at my review of last October, that 2014 is almost over and that I am starting to think about next year. Where did the time go, and how do I get it back? In all reality though, I am trying to slow down... Continue reading
