7 years of celebrating him.

August 2, 2016

It’s one of my favorite days today. Today is my sweet husband’s birthday. We have celebrated 7 of his birthdays together now and every year I feel more grateful that he has chosen to spend them with me. I got to thinking about it last night and realized that often times, the longer you’re with someone and the closer you get and the more you go through together, the more it means when you celebrate each other. It’s not like…

Is This the Real Life?

December 28, 2015

Well whoa. First up- how ’bout some air fives for the last Monday of this year! Second of all, let’s just cut to the chase here: anyone else hurting a bit today? Anyone else almost forget what a normal day feels like? Anyone else feel like sleeping for a few weeks? Anyone else never want to drive a car again? Anyone else’s body in need of a serious detox? Anyone else ready to take down all of the Christmas decor…

(His) Style: JORD Wood Watches

December 8, 2015
His Style Jord

You may remember the first time I confessed my love for JORD wood watches and I’m here to tell you that the obsession only grew from there. I have always had an affinity for watches, particularly ones that stand out from all the rest… and clearly JORD does just that. (Because yes- each watch is made out of 100% natural wood, for real.) Most of the compliments I’ve gotten on the watch I wear daily have been from the men in my life; my dad,…

EG Interviews: Mr. Cullen (4)

June 2, 2015

If you caught yesterday’s post, you’ll know that today Christian and I celebrate three years of marriage. I thought, what better way to celebrate my hilarious human being of a husband on this space than to interview him, once again, #fortheblog .  What is your favorite family tradition? X: Selecting Fred with you every year.  (When we were engaged, we started the tradition of naming our Christmas tree the same name every year: Fred. This year it will be Fred…

Us. (A Grateful Heart)

June 1, 2015

Tomorrow I celebrate 3 years of marriage with him. My husband, best friend, partner in crime, silly song co-writer, super talented, handsomely tall, musically inclined, rocker of the keys, scruffy beard wearer, most hilarious person I know, and so many more things I’ll save for his ears; my babe. Today I am grateful for us. Nearing six years of friendship, I fall more and more in love with the person he is. Nearing 3 years of husband and wife, I…

EG Interviews: Mr. Cullen (A Grateful Heart)

April 27, 2015

Um, anyone else wondering how it’s the start of yet another week ALREADY?! You may have noticed from both of my Instagram and Twitter confessions that I had a totally productive completely unproductive weekend. Christian was out of town so naturally this meant I stayed in my pjs, ate toast for dinner, and watched Nicholas Sparks movies… something I’m not proud of but will tell you it was one slippery slope. You watch one Nicholas Sparks movie, you just gotta keep…

Italy 3/3: Rock It.

April 23, 2015

I mentioned in detail our reason for this trip in Part One but in short: it was a business trip 😉 I mean, not for me but the Italy portion involved some “work” on Christian’s part. Of course he wouldn’t necessarily call ‘headlining a rock show’ rough work, but you know… a lot of practice and energy still goes into it. Christian’s main job is producing (records, sound design for commercials, and even baby toys) but being able to watch…

EG Interviews: Mr. Cullen (2)

March 5, 2015

I’m back with another edition of The Guy Behind the Blog, aka: my husband 😉 I must warn you all… when I asked him these questions last night, he was in rare form. (Aka: He was totally normal = crazy like always.) He was somewhat joking while answering some questions and completely serious while answering others. To those of you who know him in real life, let’s see if you can figure out which ones he was serious about. Thanks…

February 5, 2015

I did it! Last week, I convinced my husband to take part in Betsy’s The Guys Behind the Blog Linkup, what a sport he is! (I told him, “Babe. Just do it. DO IT #FORTHEBLOG!” and then shook my hands dramatically in the air, so I mean how can you say no to that, right ladies?!) For all of you newer readers, please note that Christian’s nickname (given to him by friends) is X and will be used in this…

X: The Twitter Whisperer (+ Wednesday Wishes)

August 27, 2014

My husband has done a lot of really cool things in his life thus far. He’s toured with national touring bands, his face has been printed on t-shirts (that I wear ever so proudly, I might add), he’s produced awesome records and sound design for commercials and baby toys, and really- the list goes on and on. One thing he has NOT done though is take part in Twitter. Well guys, that all changed this past week when he randomly…
