Ahh, Valentine's Day. Well before even finding myself in a serious relationship, I had an inexplicable soft spot for this holiday. Growing up, Valentine's Day meant elementary school parties where you'd exchange cards, stickers, and candy with your classmates. As we inch toward adulthood, however, the holiday naturally takes on a new meaning. And for … Continue reading When Every Day is Valentine’s Day
Happy (slightly belated) October, everyone! We are well into my most favorite time of the year - the weather is getting cooler (thank goodness), all things pumpkin and apple are in full effect, and the holidays are quickly approaching! It's been a minute - okay, several thousand - since my last post, but as it … Continue reading 24 Things I’ve Loved About Our 24 Months as Mr. and Mrs.
Love is the most diversely communicable sentiment I think we have. It is interpreted and exchanged differently between people, and each individual's standards or perception of such varies greatly.

You could call … Continue reading What is Love?
Happy Wednesday/Hump Day, everybody! Halfway through another week - I just started back at work today and am somehow already ready for the weekend to be here! This past week has truly been a unique kind of chaos, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love every single moment of it. And due … Continue reading Successful Surprises, Going Away Parties, and the Photo Shoot after the Storm

After my sister's birthday in March, the subsequent months all typically run together for me until mine and Tim's birthdays in early July. This year, however, was different. This year, the month of April was probably one … Continue reading April Wrap Up
I realize the average person/couple stops celebrating monthiversaries after high school or hitting the one year milestone (when the transition from the "cupcake phase" to the dull roar and daily routine of normalcy is typically complete), but it's no secret that I am a bit overzealous when it comes to my relationship.
