WOW. I can’t believe it’s been a YEAR already since we got engaged!!! God bless all those couples who fully plan and execute a wedding all within a year!! I’ve really enjoyed taking my time and soaking up every bit of enjoyment and anticipation for the big day, so let’s get to it! 1. We […]

Hey friends! I’ve decided that we all probably need some light-hearted distraction right now, so I figured now would be better than ever to type up a wedding planning update – with Pinterest inspiration pictures included! Things are really starting to shape up as far as decor and smaller visual decisions go, and I’m sharing […]

Every year I like to take a week and seriously deep clean my house. Since we’re all spending a little extra time at home right now, I thought now would be the perfect time to get a jump start on my cleaning frenzy and share some of my deep cleaning spots that you might have […]

It’s been a week today, and I still can’t believe Dustin and I are ENGAGED! The outpouring of love from everyone has been so immense and we SO appreciate it! I wanted to share a little bit about how it happened, why it was SO sweet and sentimental, AND I’m answering the most popular question […]
