2023 Wedding Behind the Scenes

One of my favorite posts of the year (and potentially the only one where I’m in front of the camera! – well, most are pictures of me behind the camera; but I think it counts as both 😉 ). It’s so fun for me to share all the parts of a wedding day that you […]

2022 Wedding BTS

2022 felt like a great reading year! Though I didn’t read as many as last year (#newbornlife), I managed to finish 48 books. Here they are, in order of worst to best, but I don’t know if anyone could do that perfectly So- find my approximate ordering below! Books ranked 1-24 were rated 4 or […]

Top Books of 2022

I’ve read the most books this year than I have ever in my life, and I am super proud of that accomplishment. A few years ago, I couldn’t even read 12 books in a year, and now I’m weighing in at 73 for 2021!! It still feels a little surreal. This year I physically read […]

Books I Read in 2020

My close family and friends know my love for Rifle Paper Co. runs deep, so it was no surprise to them that I chose it to be the theme for Anastasia’s second birthday party! I had so much fun watching the theme come to life, and on a budget to boot! There were many little […]

A Rifle Paper Co. Inspired Birthday Party

One of my favorite posts of the year is here: a behind the scenes peek at Christi Elizabeth Photography on a wedding day! I love sharing a *different* look than my usual curated posts.

2019 Behind the Scenes

I don’t normally blog many personal events in my life, but in this case I had my good camera with me and thought why not!! Fall is my favorite season (even if I was a little flat-footed in welcoming it this year since our summer was so long awaited!) and our yearly trip to Basse’s is […]

Anastasia’s Fall Trip to Pumpkin Fest | 2019

It’s finally October! Fall is my favorite season, and it seems like it’s officially here now that it’s October. Though I love most everything about this month, that’s not why October 1st is important to me. The real reason behind the significance of this day? October 1st is St. Therese’s feast day. There are so […]
