2016 In Review

Thinking back on all these amazing memories makes me feel SO blessed. It is so fun to reflect on these moments, remember how I was feeling and the excitement surrounding each big moment that helped shape my year. It's pretty crazy to think that there will be even more adventure & fun in the year to come.

Bring on 2017!


Got Our First Place

January 2016

We moved into the cutest little apartment in Bothell, WA right after we got back from our honeymoon. My favorite place in the apartment is in the kitchen and dining room area; we spend so much time together and with people we love here. The hutch my dad and grandpa made for our wedding cake & donuts now holds our dishes and pretty glasses. Our first "home" might be small, but its full of love, sunshine, Jesus, and some pretty darn amazing memories.

 

Our Wedding - Best Day Ever

February 20, 2016

How was it possible that the one day of sunshine this last February happened to be our wedding day? To say this day was perfection would be a huge understatement. Being surrounded by all our family and best friends, cheering us on as we started this new chapter of life; it was beautiful, perfect, sweet, and special. God had his hands all over that day. Everything fell into places just as it should, we got to work with some amazing people who helped make the day flawless, and at the end of it we walked (well, we danced and ran out under the shimmer of sparklers) away married. Ahh. BEST DAY EVER.

 

Sinclair & Moore Workshop

April 13, 2016

I got the CRAZIEST, most amazing, surreal chance to work with the best in the wedding industry last April. I've blogged about it a few times, but can't seem to share enough photos and thought about this day, The Sinclair & Moore Workshops are put on by Steve and Jamie Moore, an amazing power couple who has dominated the wedding world these last few years. They have created mini workshops to help teach their skills, mainly focusing on the art of floral arrangements, among other things. They are highly talented, the kindest people you will meet, and a pleasure to work with. I go to be a part of the workshop, get my makeup done, and model the ladies bouquets who attended the workshop. It was a dream.

 

Celebrated Two Years Of Blogging

July 2016

It's crazy to think that tow years ago I started this whole thing, with just a spark of passion for writing, people, and fashion. The connections I have made, the friendships that have blossomed, companies I've been given the opportunity to work with.. none of it comes without hard work and a lot of time & love poured out. I am so excited looking back on what these last two years have held, and I have high hopes and dreams for what my blog will look like in the years to come. Cheers to this wonderful opportunity and for being able to pursue something that brings me so much joy. Thanks for joining me in this journey!

 

My Best Friends Wedding

October 1, 2016

The day you dream of as bestfriends for many years! What a beautiful day. It was an honor to sand beside my very best friend Amy as she married her high school sweetheart, Justin. The love they have for each other is from God; his light and love and grace shine right through them. And their day reflected that! It was a sunny, blue sky day in Cle Elum, Wa. It was the perfect blend of country and chic, with pumpkins, bright red and orange flowers, leaves all around, and sunflowers bursting with bright color. Of course I bawled my whole speech, but how could I not when I was so full of happiness and peace. It was an amazing end to 2016, and what a funny thing that we both happened to get married within the same year?! Life is crazy awesome.

What a year it's been!
