Four Years.

June 2, 2016

Today, Christian and I celebrate four years of marriage. Over six amazing years together and now four of them as Mr. and Mrs. – something we swore we’d never do. (I’m so glad we broke that promise) 😉 Happy 4 years, my love. Here’s to many, many more.

A Love Story, Part Four: Wedding

July 3, 2014

Christian and I had a very small wedding. Small like only 6 other people besides the two of us: our parents, the pastor, and the photographer. Originally, we’d planned on eloping and getting married just the two of us on a beach in San Diego (Fletcher Cove, to be exact), but that was until we found out Fletcher Cove didn’t allow weddings on the beach, not to mention- our mothers guilt-tripped us into inviting them 😉 Then we thought about…

June 19, 2014

Truth be told, Christian and I vowed from day one that we would never get married. It was a pact we made, like a secret handshake or club. We’d even high five each other after we confessed to someone “We’re never getting married!” Weird? Maybe. But we got it. We’d both previously been married and there was no way we were going to do that to each other. Those chapters we’d each had, while separate, they were also so very…

A Love Story, Part One: We met in an alley

June 12, 2014

That bit about the alley is a true story, you know. Actually, it’s not just any story… it’s a story I share with Christian. It’s our story. Well, parts of it anyway. These are the parts I’ve decided to share with you all 🙂 I love when people ask me, “So how did you meet your husband?” because the first part of that answer is, “We met in an alley” which is quickly followed by, “he walked down the outside steps of…
