I'm a lover of love who is addicted to Starbucks and goes through weekly phases of favorite foods. I'm a wifey to a firefighter and a dogmom to a grumpy Whippet. I love having lunch dates and dream of traveling the world.

Have Camera, Will Travel- Personal

Something I’ve wanted to do for awhile now is travel for photography. I talk about destination weddings quite a bit on the blog. I have an advantage to knowing the ins and outs of destination weddings because I had one myself. I know the challenges, the benefits, and where it counts to spend a little […]

Is This It?- Personal

Falling in love and getting married? Check. Buying a home? Check.   So what’s next? I used to think it was having kids, but that’s not going to […]

Keeping it Balanced- Personal

I’ve always had a hard time keeping my life balanced. I’m pretty much an “all or nothing” person. And I really don’t mean to be that way! It’s just a flaw in my personality that I’ve dealt with my whole life. I’ve always been good at prioritizing. I know what things are absolutely necessary to […]
