Happily Ever After Is Just the Beginning
In Our Love Story: Part 2, I told you how Brighton and I fell in love and everything appeared picture perfect. But then we hit a wall where we each saw our future together playing out in different ways. They were so different, in fact, that part two of our story ended with my driving away thinking our relationship might have reached a tragic end. So here's part three. The part in a movie where the guy and the girl must overcome the odds in order to find their happily ever after.
Falling in Love with The Love of My Life
The first two times we met not much came out of them, as you read in Our Love Story: Part 1. But the third time--the third time proves the old saying "third time's the charm". Brighton and I got our third chance, and this time around, we didn't let the moment pass us by...
How I Met My Husband
It was November 30, 2012. I met up with a group of girls for a night of country swing dancing. It was here I met the tall, handsome man with piercing blue eyes dressed in the black cowboy hat, plaid blue shirt, and faded blue jeans. It was love at first sight. Or was it?
While, yes, this was the first time my husband and I actually acted like we noticed each other, this wasn't technically when we first met. Even though that's what we tend to tell people. So here's the real story...
That Time I fell Off the Face Of the Earth
Last week I went on a social media fast. Meaning, no Facebook, no Twitter, and no Instagram. Nada. I pretty much fell off the face of the earth for a week. (Except I did Pinterest a little because technically speaking that's a search engine not social media and I can look at gorgeous horses and cute puppy pictures...) "How did it go?" you ask. Well I'm writing a blog post about it so obviously I survived. But was it hard? Was it life-changing? Was it the best thing ever???
Why I never Get Around to Posting Holiday Pictures
Easter Sunday was yesterday and, as you can see, an image does not exist to highlight our day. Well, it does exist but it's on my mother-in-law's phone. This seems to happen to us every holiday. I either manage to snap a low quality family photo and share it a day late, or I fail to take any pictures at all. And here's why...
The Laundry Room & Mud Room
The mud rooms (or entry ways) to our homes bring in the most dirt and grime, especially this time of year during the rainy season. So in week seven of our Home Organization Series, we're focusing on the mud room. And also the laundry room, because in my house the mud room is also home to my washer and dryer. If you have a separate laundry room, no problem! The same tips will apply!
The Living Room and Family ROom
After a busy day, I think we all can agree that nothing feels better than snuggling up on the couch with a blanket, your favorite beverage, and a good show or book. This week on the Home Organization Series it's all about the living room and/or family room and how to make it tidy and organized but cozy and inviting at the same time.
This week on the Home Organization Series, we are tackling the kitchen. This is by far the most trafficked area in your home. And, the kitchen is also the place where guests can begin to feel like part of the family. Sitting around the table drinking coffee or sharing a meal tears down the polite businesslike exchanges and cultivates friendships. Having a neat and tidy kitchen only makes the feel of your home that much more inviting.
The Office Space
Week Four of the Home Organization Series has arrived and it's all about the office space. If you don't have an actual room to call an office, this is the time to go through the area you hoard away the important papers, bills, and business related items. Ready to get started? Let's go!
It's week three of the home organization series! Hopefully you're making great headway on your home after going through the bedrooms of your home. Now it's time to take control of the bathrooms! Whether you have one or four of these rooms in your home, follow these steps to make it clean, functional, and inviting (cause everyone's gotta use them!).
This is like the coffee talk corner. Sometimes I give organization tips or relationship advice, but a lot of times I'm just sharing about the everyday moments that make up my life.
