I’m not a cold weather girl, but I love a winter wedding. I know that’s a contradiction, but there’s something about a bride in sleeves and (faux!) fur that I love as well as the rich jewel tones that are often found in winter weddings. Winter weddings tend to be all about burgundy, deep blues […]

No, not that “thang.” The other “thang.” The unthinkable happened yesterday. I lost my phone! I’m not someone who is tied to their phone and I enjoy unplugging, however, losing it wasn’t part of the plan. I have insurance on my phone, so while it would be a pain to replace it, it’s something I […]
