The Wedding Series.

Over the past couple of weeks (read months), I have talked a lot about our sweet love story. From our not so cute “meet cute,” to our falling in love, to each of us figuring out the other was their one, to the day he got down on one knee. I love our love story, it is my favorite one by far and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with my sweet man. But before I can do that, we have to plan that wedding thing. Lol.

The Best Day Ever. So Far.

The Best Day Ever. So Far.

October 6, 2018. The best day ever, well so far. It was a wonderful and busy and amazing and exciting day. But let’s go back a couple of days before.

The weekend we got engaged my parents were coming into town, so the whole week before I was running around trying to make sure our apartment was perfect for when they arrived. This was the first time my parents were visiting me in Seattle and the first time they were visiting Riley and I in our home together. There were many loads of laundry, vacuuming, mopping and oven cleaning (why did I think my mom would look INSIDE the oven?!). My parents are by no means critical, but I always feel this pressure when they come to visit.

Life Lately

Life Lately

I realize that I have not posted in the past couple of months, but I would like to think it was for good reason. I decided at the beginning of this year that I wanted to make the blog a priority, but I also wanted to give myself the grace to not post when the situation warranted. Well, the situation warranted about three months ago. So lets time travel back to February of 2019 and talk about the past few months.

Falling In Love

Falling In Love

The beginning of our relationship and a light in my life for a while. I talked about this in my 2018 post, but the beginning of 2018 (and really into the middle of the year) was rough for me. I talked about our Not So Meet Cute. Now I am going to tell you about how this new relationship was always something I could count on to be good. It was something that made the hard times just a little better.

A Few of my Favorite Things

A Few of my Favorite Things

Happy Friday friends! This has FLOWN by for me. Work has been crazy, I have been focusing a lot on healthy eating and trying to keep in an exercise rhythm. All in all, it has been a full week of self improvement and it is making me feel so much better about myself. Even though it has been a busy week, I am thankful to be busy. Soooo… I thought today I would share some of the things that having been making my life just a little bit better and a little bit easier recently.

Travel Goals.

Travel Goals.

I talk a lot about the places I have been and the places that I plan to go in a period of time, but I have never talked about what my ultimate travel goals are. I love traveling the United States and seeing all that our country has to offer. I talked more about this in this post (check it out here!). In fact a goal of mine is to visit all 50 states by the time I am 35 (that was originally 30, but life). But, I obviously also want to see countries and cultures outside of my own. I have another goal to visit five new countries in five years!

New Year, New Me?

New Year, New Me?

Hello again, friends. 2019 is set to be a pretty big year for me. I am getting married. It is the first full year in my job. An exciting trip to the east coast (full disclosure its my honeymoon).  And, I am guessing, many fun surprises along the way. Over all, my hope for 2019 is to make small changes that help enhance the things I love in my life and love to do, while decreasing the things that are not good for me and hurting me in the long term. So, lets talk about the goals that will hopefully help make that happen.

GO VOTE FRIENDS!

GO VOTE FRIENDS!

Happy Election Day friends! I just wanted to hop on here and remind everyone to vote! I will admit that I used to be one of those people that would say, “I don’t care about politics.” The reality is that is total BS. Politics effect everyone. Politics effect our daily lives. If you have any other excuses, just listen to President Obama on why those aren’t exactly excuses.
