The Day I Married Ember Grey

June 2, 2017

  Hey, Ember Grey readers! Christian here! I asked Emily if it would be ‘ok’  if I could write a post today for our five year wedding anniversary. You should have seen her face. She lit up with excitement and was like “….really?!” It was that same type of “really?!” on Valentines day in grade school when the kid in class you liked dropped you a Spongebob Squarepants Valentine .. and you could literally die. Most of you know her…

Eeek! Our Toy Line is HERE!

November 2, 2016

Oh guys. I have been waiting for what feels like forever to finally introduce “our” toy line, Noodling, from Infantino! Some of you may have caught my Snapchat a few weeks ago, announcing that the toys Christian and I worked on together are here and that I was planning on doing a giveaway with all of them and… today is that day 🙂 It seemed easier to vlog about this than to write about it (#newbornlife) so check out the…

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.

My Favorite Christmas Tradition

December 14, 2015
us at AMMCC 2015

I have always loved traditions. Growing up, my parents passed down and started new traditions with my brother and me year-round, though most of my favorite ones always happened around Christmas time. Lucky for me, Christian is really into traditions too, especially Christmastime traditions, and we’ve already started a few of our own. My all time favorite is our week-before-Christmas dates. Each day or night for a week, we’ll go on special dates: we always see a movie in the theater,…

Dating Fall. (A Grateful Heart)

October 26, 2015

Happy Monday!! Before we get to grateful heart today, I have a few random things that must be mentioned, must be discussed. (And truthfully, my heart is grateful for the randomness too.) For those of you reading EG today from my site and not via email… notice anything different?? 😉 If you’re reading via email, may I ask you to click here & take a look at my blog’s new look?! I love it. Funny how a little refresh can inspire…

Emoji Song Blitz (and some other stuff)

January 16, 2015

Christian is still out of town so I’m keeping myself busy with blogging, more decorating, and hopefully a few trips to a coffee shop to finally start on my novel (nope! Haven’t even started yet, I just have a million emails I’ve sent to myself – full of notes.) Anyway, so with him being away, we text a lot more than we usually do. A few days ago, he came up with a game: Emoji Song Blitz. It’s SO MUCH…

A Grateful Heart (+ week-long linkup!)

September 22, 2014

  Today I am grateful for fall dates with my babe. This past Saturday, I was a guest blogger on The Girl Who Loved to Write and listed five of my most favorite fall dates. The first one I mentioned wasn’t necessarily “fall-ish” (yes, that’s a word) but is to me because Christian and I officially started dating in the fall-time, so we have some annual traditions we still continue – even if it’s just sharing chips and salsa and…

Grateful Heart Monday (+ week-long linkup!)

July 14, 2014

I am starting my week with a grateful heart and here’s why, Travel.  More specifically, travel with my husband. I remember, all too well, the days when Christian was traveling while on tour and more times than not, I stayed in Chicago – counting down the days until he was back. It was an exciting time for both of us, but we also really missed each other. Lots of emails, Skype dates, and postcards were exchanged to make up for…

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…

A Love Story, Part Three: Cross Country Move(s)

June 26, 2014

My husband and I moved twice in a span of 6 months… cross country, no less. It was SO exhausting and emotional and exciting and stressful, and I may or may not have cried when “someone” (hint: it wasn’t me) forgot to tape the bottom of one of the boxes during one of these moves, sending packing peanuts and our stuff everywhere – after having packed for a solid straight 6 hours – meanwhile, Cleo continued to run and slide…
