Levi is already a month old. I can't believe it! He was born on Sunday, January 27, 2019, and we got discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, January 30. Our first night home was a rough one for me with thinking about all that we had to do. If you read my blog post on [...]

This pregnancy has flown by so far! I’m already 22 weeks along, so I wanted to start documenting it before it’s over. My friend Megan took these pictures when Lance and I first found out I was pregnant. I’m so glad she was able to capture this sweet moment for us.

We had our tasting a couple of weeks ago at the Lake Placid Lodge, where our reception will be [...]
I can't believe tomorrow is already June 1st! Where has this year gone?? Seriously it's flying by. We just had snow last month and it's already summer flying by! Since last weekend was Memorial Weekend, the "unofficial start of summer" the wedding count down has begun! In just over 2 months I'll be walking down the aisle!

Last week my friend and I headed to Pure Placid to attend a Flower Arrangement Workshop taught by Linda D'Arco, owner of Little Farmhouse Flowers. I was so excited for this event simply because having fresh flowers on my kitchen table makes me so happy. Flowers add so much life to an environment by creating joy, adding interest and making everyday special. Not to mention, a fresh bouquet of flowers is a great way to re-fresh for spring. Last year I saw Little Farmhouse Flowers at our local Farmers Market in Keene Valley with the most beautiful bouquets, so I was thrilled when I saw Pure Placid was hosting this event for their Wellness Wednesday's series.
