Wedding Kickoff

Girlfriends are a necessity and I’ve been fortunate to have a core group of friends built in since high school, and one of those girls has been my best friend since elementary school.  I also found an equally amazing group of fun-loving girls in college that I’ve continued to be close to even though we’re all scattered across the country.  Since 2017 was a milestone year as most of us turned thirty, I thought it would be fun to reflect on what a great trip around the sun it was and how much I love these girls.

(The picture above is actually from the kick-off party to our wedding weekend!  It was so much fun having my friends, old and “new”, together by my side for all of our wedding events.  This picture was taken almost four an a half years ago and I’m happy to report that each of these women are still dear friends.  I am just so grateful for my squad.)

This past weekend one of my best girlfriends turned thirty and we celebrated her next decade in roaring twenties style.  I’ve been friends with most of these girls since high school (one of them since first grade), so it’s really special to celebrate all of our important milestones together!

A Weekend in NYC

NYC (8)This past weekend, Scott and I spent a long weekend in New York City.  We’re lucky enough to have friends who live in the city and they always show us a good time, taking us to historical bars, hip restaurants and recommending fun tourist activities a little off the beaten path.  For those without friends in NYC, here’s my long-weekend guide to New York City.

When in Rome

fashion, Italy, Rome, travel


Rome has a thing for monuments.  And boy are the beautiful!  We did a self-guided walking tour of Rome’s main attractions and loved getting lost in between.  The Eternal City is sprawling yet walkable, which makes it easy to pack a lot of sightseeing into a short period of time.

I am happy to announce that my blog was nominated for a Liebster Award… twice!  I was originally nominated by Laura of itslalaflutterby and then recently by Rebekah of Moments of a Mermaid!

What is a Liebster Award you may ask?!  I wasn’t entirely sure myself as I’m still pretty new to the world of blogging, so I did my research and found out that The Liebster Award is a way for new bloggers to create connections and empower each other. I’m so grateful to be nominated by both of these amazing bloggers.  Thank you!
