Anniversary Photo Shoot!

When Nate proposed, he had set up a mini engagement photo shoot to happen right afterwards with W + E Photographie, seen here and here (which was so fun!). Through the next 4 short months of wedding planning, we ended up not doing our “official”…

The Very Grand Canyon

Our month of weekend travel has been really really fun and also exhausting. But so worth it : ) The weekend after Vegas, Nate and I went on a short 2 day trip to the Grand Canyon! Our friends, Afton and Gerrit, met us in…

Las Vegas, baybay!

If you know me at all, Las Vegas seems like…sort of the last place on earth I would want to vacation. BUT we live 4 hours from it, I’ve never been, and it’s like an american past time! I had tried once before to road…

Malibu, Sugar, and Not Seeing Monica.

After the madness of the holidays this winter, Nate and I decided to make a little travel itinerary for the spring. Our first weekend destination was Malibu. We left OC at 7 that morning, grabbed some Stumptown pour over at Primo Passo and then headed…

After 365 Days of Marriage.

Today is Nate and I’s one year anniversary. In ways it feels like a life time ago, as if I can’t believe there was a time when I wasn’t married. And then part of me feels like it happened yesterday, and I just want it…

New York, New York

Days of Summer: Middleton Place

Since today is the last day of summer (sobs), I thought it appropriate to post some photos of one of my very favorite summer evenings. When my family was in Charleston, we took a “wine stroll” through Middleton Place. Middleton Place is a historical home…

My people.

Today I am missing my people. My family. So I thought it an appropriate time to finally post our family photos from this year in South Carolina. I took most of them, with the help of Nate and Honey (my sister, Jillian’s, nickname). Oh and…

Boulder, CO…I like you.

Last weekend Nate surprised me with a getaway trip to Colorado with some of our closest friends, Gerrit and Afton! Last year Afton and I planned a surprise weekend for G and Nate, so I’m hoping this becomes a nice little cycle for us four….

Los Angeles

I’m a firm believer in living it up where you are. I know, I know, I live in Southern California. But I have not always lived in the land of beaches and entertainment. And I’ve visited a lot of places that aren’t considered destinations, by…
