Well it was yet another midwest Easter that was all too cold for my liking. But we bundled up and ventured all around the burbs to see the people we love. We drove in Friday, had a relaxing dinner in Logan Square (Reno, you so good), and then packed our weekend full of family and […]

Among a number of different things that made this weekend so great, I made another trip around the sun!  Twenty-five, a quarter century.  Here’s our weekend review, birthday style! Bel Air Cantina–  The heavens opened and graced Madison with my all time, favorite Milwaukee restaurant.  Some of the best tacos around.  And, you cannot beat […]

 “Oh darling, let’s be homebodies.” – Jenna Kutcher. While I love adventures around our city, there is just something I love about staying at home.  Most Friday nights, you’ll catch us chatting about our week over margs, eating tacos on the back patio, and catching some early z’s.  For a while, I felt bad about […]

Reese’s Eggs are exponentially better than the originals…and dare I say even the Valentines and Christmas shapes, too? –> Pretty sure Dill had two and I had about nine. After months of back and forth to Chicago, D and I decided to spend our first Easter together here in Wisconsin. We love our families to […]

I cannot, for a second, believe that these beautiful photos are ours for the keeping. Our photographer, Mike Williams, executed one the most important aspects of our wedding…the images speak for themselves. As I’ve said before, photos were a top priority; they’re one of our love languages.  For the best day of our lives, we wanted […]

By far, one of our best decisions was taking day after pictures.  We knew with a December wedding, we would be racing the sun to capture outdoor pictures in the daylight, especially without the luxury of a first look (I went old school with this one!  Didn’t see Dill until I walked down the aisle!) […]

Nothing says “I love you” like some good reads right?! No, seriously.  I think books are the gifts that keep on giving.  This year I decided to gift Dillon (and myself) some new reading material for Valentine’s Day! Since we’ve been working on a journal for our marriage, I’ve been wanting to find some books […]

Before the wedding, I read so many wedding articles and blogs about the dreaded gap.  That time between the ceremony and reception. Today, most people advise against having a long gap.  I totally get it.  As a guest, it is tough to have down time in between.  Do I wear the same outfit? Do I […]
