Off to South Africa...


I have wanted to go to Africa as long as I can remember. My parents went early in their marriage which instilled a huge push in me to go. They went on safari, slept in tree houses and had some not so pleasant encounters with monkeys. When Aaron and I were presented with the opportunity to go this month we leapt at it. I am so excited to share our journey with you. Stay tuned! 

Much Love,


one year with a.

Wow. Just wow. I can't believe I've been married for a year, actually more than a year now!  This wasn't the plan. Aaron wasn't the plan. In my mind, I wasn't supposed to get married until I was at least 29 and the CEO of my own company! Things change for the better, I believe. 

I wasn't looking for love when I met my husband, or even a serious relationship. This just happened (I believe God had a hand in it). I fell in love. 

Aaron and I  were friends. Slowly, we started dating. He made me laugh and laugh and laugh some more. Life together was good. Life together is still good. 

Aaron is one of the most compassionate men I know. He has great patience with me in my "hangry" moments (when hunger leads to anger!). I'm wondering if any of you have ever been hangry? Haha, let me tell you, this can be a problem!  

I am so blessed to have a friend who is kind and understanding. We compliment each other. I can't wait to see what future years have to offer us. I'd be happy to travel every moment with Aaron or even stay home and work on all our projects. Either way, we'll be making memories.

I love you, Babe. I don't deserve you, but thanks for picking me all the same. Kisses and infinite hugs.

Fall Wardrobe Staples with Lexington Company

Sweater Dress // Tuxedo Shirt // Wrap Coat // Sweater // Skirt // Poncho

Layering is one of my favorite parts of fall fashion. There's something special about bundling up and walking around my neighborhood. All the fall colors and smells make me so happy. I just love being all wrapped up and cozy! 

Lexington Company has some of my favorite layering pieces in their new collection. I'm wearing some of my favorites above, including the Daisy Checked Coat and the Alice Poncho. I love how these pieces can be styled up or down for the cold months ahead. They're perfect for work, a coffee shop stop, a trip to the grocery store or a date night. 

I love classic pieces I don't have to think about. I can just throw them on and walk out the door. Lexington Company makes so many pieces like this. 

Before a morning workout, I throw my Daisy Checked Coat on top of my workout gear. Fall look: complete!  

These great clothes make my life easier. With Lexington Company, everything just seems to come together!
