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
It's a cloudy Saturday morning, and we are celebrating with pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes and Netflix. It's a perfect day so far.
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
I've wanted colorful hair my entire life. 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 with (subtle) Sunset Hair
A few weeks ago, the hubs and I had another surprise summer date at my favorite local restaurant. Bistro19 is where my bridal shower was held, and where Russ and I celebrate every special occasion - each anniversary, birthday, even a good day at work because I don't believe in looking very hard for reasons to … Continue reading Summer Lovin: Peach Tasting Surprise Date
Stood in 94 degree heat today to buy two boxes of fresh Georgia peaches from The Peach Truck. I can't wait until they are ripe enough to devour and to can!
Summertime and the living is easy.
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
A few weeks back, my best friend Mallory and her oldest sister, Margeaux, asked if I would take fall family photos for them. I'm lucky in that Mal has been my best friend since we were little kids (she's been on the blog before - check out photos from her bridal shower). We've been through so … Continue reading Mingo Creek County Park Fall Family Photoshoot
I'm currently enjoying the perfect Sunday - curled up on the couch with my feet up, watching football, and relaxing after having one of the most full and fun weekends I've had in awhile. Truth be told, I have not been feeling very well lately (Crohn's decided it was going to flare on me), and … Continue reading Fall Weekend Fun
