Hands Free Life, Rhi Reads Review

Hands Free Life, Rhi Reads Review

February was a short and very full month so I’m happy to report I picked an enjoyable book to enjoy! A recap for anyone just joining: #rhireads2018 is my book list for the year, made up of 11 books I’ve intentionally selected to read over the next 11 months (one month is a ‘free’ month). […]

Arden + Jeremiah

Arden + Jeremiah

If you can believe it this wedding is from the 2016 wedding season. Yet it still remains one of the sweetest we’ve ever had a pleasure being a part of. Arden and Jeremiah came to me very early in the planning process in January of 2015 looking for a planning and design team to help […]

The Best Pico De Gallo

The Best Pico De Gallo

I promised I would share my pico de gallo recipe months ago on Instagram and wanted to deliver on my promise here with you today! I started making my own homemade pico last summer when I radically changed my diet and was in search for guilt free and delicious food. My go to breakfast dish […]

The Fuss Free Dinner Party

What’s one thing you most looked forward to when you moved into your first place? For me, I remember very clearly what that one thing was.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Andrew and I started the morning out nice and early with sweet surprise gifts for another and shared coffee before Lachlan got out of bed.

Food is an incredibly emotional thing for most people and to all of […]

I’ve always anticipated Valentine’s Day with fierce eagerness and sense of excitement. Whether it’s the nostalgia of a flirty red and pink color palette, the sweet gestures centered around love, or the way the holiday often makes the dead of winter feel a little bit more warm, I stand behind February 14th as an official […]

Sarah + Phil

Sarah + Phil

It’s been nearly six months since Sarah and Phil’s wedding celebration but I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a quintessential Michigan fall day. An early crisp morning, beautifully warm afternoon, and chilly evening complete with the kind of sunset the west side of the state is best know for. Everyone who lives […]

What You Love Matters

What You Love Matters

In pursuit of a beautiful and refined 2018, I’ve been learning a lot about myself and truths about this one precious life as a whole. I’m sure that sounds pretty philosophical and fluffy but it’s been a resounding theme as we get deep into February. One of the reasons I picked ‘disciplined’ as my word […]

2018 Blog Reader Survey Results

First things first. I am SO grateful for you guys! I knew that before last Monday but I know this even more so after reading your feedback from the blog reader survey last week. At first I was very nervous to hear what you all think (especially since the survey was anonymous, a decision I made […]
