Fall drives are one of my favorite peaceful things. I love taking in the pretty scenery while listening to music. I had the help […]

They offer the prettiest views and peaceful time to myself (needed as a parent!). Time away from busyness and high-traffic interstates. Let’s just say, they’re one of the most refreshing things I know! The drive […]

Time sure flies when you’re having fun! Now that my wedding season is slowing down (it’s getting cold out! brr), I’ve been catching up on all the household chores I’ve been putting off for the last few months. Like finish painting our kitchen that I started in August. Oops! In between baby snuggles and housework, […]

Happy Tuesday, Friends! How crazy is this weather we’ve been having? I’m so ready for the real  October!! It’s high time we had that crisp fall air. I’m ready for that perfect temperature for cozy sweaters, lattes and walks to see the turning colors! Instead we’ve had rain, rain and yet, more rain. I’m so thankful […]
