Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.

We had our engagement photos taken yesterday. I’ll admit I was pretty anxious all day leading up to them. Not that I’m shy, but being the focal point of a camera for a few hours straight is a lot of pressure. What girl isn’t her own worst critic?
All my nerves went away once we got into the groove with our photographer, who will also be shooting our wedding. She made the experience so relaxed and comfortable, and genuinely fun. She shared a few edited pictures with us last night, and they made me smile. Excited to see the rest in the next couple of weeks.
There was a time where I wasn’t sure I wanted engagement photos, especially because our actual engagement was documented. But, I am so glad we did this!
Happy 25th birthday to this full-of-life beauty, my little sister, and lifelong friend.
Nutella Banana Bread is happening!
Let it be known this is THE best tasting batter, period.
Chris picked this up on his own for his new breakfast cereal. I have created a little health nut over here!
This is fascinating and made me feel such emotion.
