Aug. 27//Part Three, Oahu, Hawaii//Vacation

August 27, 2018

There is nothing quite like the warm welcome of Hawaii’s ‘aloha spirit,’ especially the ‘gathering place’ of Oahu. From visitors enjoying the classic beach vibes of Waikiki Beach, to the leis that visitors receive, the vivid colors of the sunset, and the beautiful sounds of traditional Hawaiian music, it is hard to imagine this place […]

One week ago Wilson and I were on a plane leaving one of the most beautiful islands on the planet! This vacation was absolutely amazing, and I am sad that it has come and gone. However, I have so many new pictures left to share! A couple of days ago, I shared Part One from […]

Aug. 21//Part One, Oahu, Hawaii//Vacation

August 21, 2018

The first time I really learned about Hawaii was the first time I saw Lilo & Stitch. I was young, and, Hawaii looked like a magical island in the middle of the ocean where people wear hula skirts, volcanos erupt with lava, and luaus happen every single night. A Hawaii adventure has always been near […]

A few weeks ago, Wilson and I hit the road to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for a fun-filled vacation with my side of the family. My family goes to Hilton Head Island every summer, so I have been plenty of times before, but I was super excited because we had planned a full week […]

Wow, I cannot believe our second year of marriage has come and gone. Two years ago, I stood in the back of a church, waiting for the doors to open, waiting for forever. We had nothing but each other, no money, no time, and my college degree still in the making. I read this week […]

Apr. 23//Spring Date Night Ideas

April 23, 2018

Wilson and I do not get to have date nights that often, especially during spring wedding season, so we take full advantage of them when we can. I think dating your spouse is so important, because, it is important to carve out time with little distraction, in order to take your relationship to a deeper […]

My favorite blog post ever is finally up! Santorini friends! This is the place where Wilson and I indulged during our trip to Greece, because, we stayed at the coolest AirBnb ever! It was a beautiful studio apartment inside a cave that boasted a beautiful hot tub with an even better sunset view of the […]

Feb. 28//It’s All Greek To Me//Day Three, Athens, Greece//Vacation

February 28, 2018

We woke up early on our last day in Athens, in order to see all the city had to offer-we did not get much done the day before between sleeping in, photos, and a long lunch with new friends.  TRAVEL TIP: Be prepared to allow at least two hours for both lunch and dinner when […]

Our first full day in Athens, Greece. So exciting! We started the morning by sleeping in, because the jet lag was starting to get to us, then we made our way to our Athens’ photoshoot with Greece Wedding Photographers, Aaron and Tamim Delaney. Wilson and I love getting photos taken when we travel-it is like our […]
