wedding season and the opposite of things

It’s officially wedding season! Both my husband’s and my cousins all decided to get married this year, and we’re pretty excited about it (one is in Croatia). If you’ve ever planned a wedding, you know just how stressful the time leading up to it, and the day itself, can be. But if all we have […]

our wedding: the party – part one

I’ve finally made it to the PARTY. I have a lot of photos of our friends and family dining and dancing at the reception, so I’ll be splitting these into two blog posts. They came from the northeast, the west coast, and all over Texas to be there for us, and we couldn’t be more […]

things that make me happy

Here are some things from this past week that have made me happy. πŸ™‚ Root beer floats. We ate entirely too much ice cream this week (and chocolate chip cookies). But hey, the wedding is over, right? Just kidding! Kipling being her usual adorable self cozied up on the couch. Did I tell you we […]
