Anniversary #1 and a Happy New Year

December 30, 2017

Mason, one year ago today, you and I were sealed for time and all eternity. Starting this stage of our lives last year was the by far the best decision that I have ever made. I used to think that marriage would somehow hold me back. Wow, I have never been so happy to be…

If anyone follows me on Instagram, you saw that Mason and I went to Washington D.C. last weekend! It was completely last minute, and it could not have been more fun! On Saturday, I passively told Mason that it would be fun to see the White House during Christmas. I had seen pictures online, and…

1500 Miles Later

August 23, 2017

We spent last weekend with Mason’s family in Arizona! I’d give you an exact location, but we drove ALL OVER  the state! By the end of the weekend, we calculated that we drove about 1500 miles… Yikes!😶 For some reason, that reminds me of the song “I’m Gonna Be (500 miles)” by The Proclaimers. And I would…

There is something so satisfying about eating hot dogs that were roasted in a sand and soot coating. It tastes gross, but it feels so good, so you drench it in ketchup to mask the taste, and everything is right with the world! And then you get home and you still smell like campfire, and…

Our Deepest Fear

August 1, 2017

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.…

Here are 11 things on my mind currently (including questions for people who clearly have life more figured out than I do if you can answer them): My grandma tap dances (how cute is that??), and her group is tapping at the OC Fair today. They did such a good job! I’m a fan😉! I…

City by the Bay

July 14, 2017

Last weekend, we were in San Francisco! I know I say this every time, but it was a blast! I guess it helps that I have such a cute travel buddy😍. We got back on Monday morning, and we were exhausted! Our flight took off at 6 am, so we had to leave our hotel at 4am- not…
