Hi all. It's been a little while since I've posted, so I thought I should write an "official" post about my absence. When I started this blog a few years ago, I was exploring different outlets of creativity in my free time. I had just started doing more crafts, and my day job was pretty … Continue reading Farewell for Now
Almost heaven, West Virginia...Russ and I are both Mountaineers at heart, and this weekend we spent some time in the good 'ol mountain state, hiking and chasing hot air balloons. When we were in college, one of our favorite fall traditions was the Mountaineer Balloon Festival. Sadly, the festival hasn't been put on for a number … Continue reading Wild & Wonderful Weekend
I told y'all about the surprise summer dates that I had planned for Russell throughout the summer...what I didn't tell you is that they were my cover story! The entire time, I was planning a surprise 30th birthday party for Russ and didn't want him to know. I set up a bunch of other surprise … Continue reading Cheers & Beers to 30 Years Surprise Birthday Party

When I was a little kid, I used to hoard those Halloween colored-hair-spray-in-a-can contraptions that would turn your whole head (and your brush, bathroom, clothes, and lungs) hot pink. Arguably, the best time to experiment with wild hair color would have been high school or college, but I … Continue reading Saying Goodbye to My Roaring 20s

I am a complete sucker for stationery - pretty notebooks, printed paper, greeting cards, fancy pens, scrapbook embellishments - and I am a planner. Oh boy, am I a planner. My favorite Christmas present this past year was the planner Russ bought me. (I got a lot of strange looks from family and friends when … Continue reading Journaling & Planner Fun
These photos were taken in Russell's aunt's yard...can you imagine having your house surrounded by this beauty? What a lucky lady she is (and how much hard work she must put into it!) I was so inspired by her beautiful landscaping.
I've been wanting to make this post for awhile now and since I'm so glad that I finally can, I'm staying up later than I should to put it together. Today, Russell and I went on our first date of the summer (yeah, I know, summer doesn't officially start until next weekend), one of several … Continue reading Summer Lovin: Freedom Farms Brews & BBQ In The Field Surprise Date
