Devil’s Lake Session

A major shout out to Avenue 81 Photography for these incredible portraits.  If you are in or around Milwaukee and need a great photographer, check her out.  Her work is fantastic. In July, Dillon and I ended up helping out some photographers at a workshop.  They were in need of a couple to model for their […]

Christmas Table Inspiration

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 […]

We were fortunate enough to celebrate Christmas with both of our families. Without too much planning, it really fell into place perfectly. Dillon’s family had planned […]
