5 Years...

I started this little blog 5 years ago when I was planning a wedding to the handsome guy pictured above.  I can't believe how quickly the years fly by.  I'm not ready to let go of the old blog just yet but if you'd like to keep up with our various adventures you can find me here and here.

*Thank you to my husband for being a good sport and humoring my request for anniversary photos and thank you to the lovely Jaci Marie for taking them.

Costa Rica, in photos...

I just wanted to share a few photos from our girls' trip to Costa Rica in January.  We rang in 2013 under a sky full of fireworks, ate fish tacos every single day, learned how to surf and spent a beautiful, sunny day sailing on a catamaran.  It was an unbelievable trip, with a group of the most amazing friends a girl could ask for.

*If you find yourself in Costa Rica, I highly recommend checking out the Tico Adventure Lodge in Samara and Sailing Hibiscus in Tamarindo!

Holiday Dress Shopping: Madewell Style

Okay, I know I say this every. single. year. but I feel like I blinked and it was December.  If you are anything like me, I always find myself in a panic trying to find a last minute dress to wear to holiday functions.  This year I decided I would simplify my life and plan my outfits ahead of time.  I spotted this dress at Madewell and had to try it on.  To put it simply, I didn't want to take it off.  Simple, festive and flattering, this dress made me feel like a million bucks.  I liked it so much I bought it in red and black.  I wore the black version to a friend's wedding rehearsal and again at Thanksgiving dinner with tights and boots.  I'm saving the red one for a few Christmas functions and can't wait to wear it with heels and a statement necklace.  Holiday dress shopping, done!
