Weekend Recap 40 – Easter 2018

Weekend Recap 40 – Easter 2018

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 […]

Neutral Style (and a must-have wooden watch)

Neutral Style (and a must-have wooden watch)

My mom always taught me two lessons with style: you CANNOT go wrong with basics, and that watches, while practical, can be a beautiful addition to your look (she’s so chic and so stylish and so right). And I was so excited when I came across JORD and their incredible wooden watches. They’re minimal, neutral, […]

DIY Salt Dough Ornaments

DIY Salt Dough Ornaments

Easy craft projects are totally my jam. I love DIY’s but am very impatient.  So this is another quick and easy holiday project. You probably made these way back in preschool or kindergarten, but they are the perfect little neutral touch to a Christmas tree. Here’s what you’ll need: 1 cup of flour 1 cup […]

Weekend Recap 09- Kell’s Quarter Century

Weekend Recap 09- Kell’s Quarter Century

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 […]

At Home

At Home

 “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 […]

Easter 2017

Easter 2017

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 […]

LiveSideMedia FTW

LiveSideMedia FTW

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 […]

Dirty Dresses and Day Old Hair

Dirty Dresses and Day Old Hair

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!) […]

Reading Lately

Reading Lately

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 […]

Embrace the Gap

Embrace the Gap

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 […]
