best gift ever.

I had a really long day yesterday. However, I came home to a belated one year anniversary gift from my parents -- my day {week, month, YEAR!} was made :) My parents had Inslee {my very favorite illustrator} do an illustration {watercolor original} of us from our wedding day. I'm … [Read more...]

one year.

Yesterday marked one year with my love! Hard to believe it's been a year but looking back it has been quite a ride. From our wedding in Cincy to our honeymoon in France to living in Grenada this Fall to moving to Hoboken... It was a crazy first year but I wouldn't choose to do it with anyone … [Read more...]

We wanted them to be cute but didn't want to spend TOO much time figuring out the components. We knew right off the bat we were going to do 2 water … [Read more...]

Wedding Wednesday

Let's talk about white & white. That is the bride AND groom wearing white. And as a side note, when I say white I really mean ivory. Amanda at Hyde Park Bridal {where I got my dress} told me that pretty much all brides wear ivory -- not WHITE white. While going through old wedding photos, … [Read more...]

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! I woke up to a special treat being mentioned on the Enchanted Home's blog. The Enchanted Home's post mentions my bridesmaids luncheon and some of my wedding photos. I don't think I will ever get sick of going through our wedding photos. Some more … [Read more...]
