christmas card time

In the first two weeks of November, on Facebook, I’ve said my bit about the red cups, the Paris terrorist attacks, and the Syrian refugee situation in the good ol’ US of A.  It’s made for a frustrating, headachy couple of weeks that make my face hurt.  Yes.  My face.  But now it’s time to […]

four years & counting.

Happy four year anniversary to my now-husband Anthony​!  It feels like only yesterday that I had such a giant crush on my cousin’s friend, that I was taking a cold shower one night during the infamous October storm so that I wouldn’t look completely disgusting when I went over to your house to play scrabble, […]

the next step

Hey everyone!  Man, I remember the days when blogging was my number one priority.  Now it has definitely taken up residence on the back burner… in fact, it may have even fallen off the stove entirely… oops!  I don’t know if I have mentioned this on here yet, but Anthony recently got a job working […]

time lapse photos

What does everything think of time lapse photos? I’m kind of cheesy in that I like little “traditions”… Anthony and I have been together going on three years now, and we never had anything that we did each year of our relationship that we could turn into a tradition (except maybe going to the casino […]
