Fall Scent DIY_Twine And Braids

I think the best part of fall, besides everything, are the delicious scents that come along with the season.  That mixture of cinnamon and nutmeg, cloves and ginger are so homey and comforting – it’s a shame we limit them to just a few months.  Before the first leaf turns from green to red we […]

A few years ago, Erick and I gifted each other a camera to photograph our life; sunrises, hikes, beach walks.  This spurred into my love of taking photos and styling projects for this blog.  We both enjoy being behind the camera, but having photos taken of us?  Not so much.  When we got engaged I […]
