Gingerbread Pancakes_Twine And Braids

Have I mentioned that I love holiday traditions? JK, I know I have (here, here, here…I’ll stop).  Since living with Erick we’ve made it a point to create our own traditions while carrying with us those that we each experienced while growing up. Our first Christmas morning together, three years ago, we decided to make […]

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 […]

Wedding Planning

It feels like our wedding plans have been slowly but surely falling into place.  We’re still over nine months away so we’ve been focused on nailing down the big items; venue, church, photographer, music, etc.  So far those things have been going well and it feels like we’re in a good spot.  You know; we’re […]
