Hello friends – and those newcomers to my blog who may stumble upon this post. I have a very specific request for a very special and heart-wrenching reason. This post centers on a family many in the blogosphere know about or have heard of. Some (like me!) may have followed the Mom, April, and her […]

I feel terrible that I forgot to do this post here on the blog! I shared this exciting news on Instagram and Twitter basically a month ago and I know some of you read here more so than follow me on social media. D’oh! So yes! The hubby and I are super excited to share […]

A great man

Hello to all of you who are maybe still following me on Bloglovin’, Twitter, and the like! I know I have not written in a long time, but I have had quite the busy late Winter and early Spring. Some of it good, most of it crummy. I’ve had a hard time having my head […]

One of the low points

Let’s stop talking about clothing and wedding stuff for a hot second. I want to share a life experience not a lot of people will have in their life, but they need to respect and understand friends and family that go through this kind of situation. One of the lowest points in my life was […]

Wedding Wednesday: Beach Wedding

Alyssa + Chris // Destination Wedding | Outer Banks, NC from Josh Gooden on Vimeo. Is this video not incredible? I just love everything about it. The music for the video, the genuine expressions on everyone’s faces that are being filmed, the scenery which I grew up spending so much time at (the big orange […]

Muted Monday

My Gaga is a lovely lady – she is on the far right here (with my Mom and her sister N on Easter in 1979). A great lady in my life is my Grandmama. She is a lovely person, too. (you know I had to throw in the picture of me as a bebe! ha!) […]
