Marriage Monday: The Story of Us, Part 2 | Our Proposal Story

Mitchel and I have been together for 8 and a half years. That is CRAZY to me. We started dating in October 2010, as freshmen in college. Our relationship was just plain fun. We did fun things on campus together and I thought he was hilarious. Random trips to Krispy Kreme in Greenville at 9pm […]

Marriage Monday: Opening Our Home

Marriage Monday: Who doesn’t love gift giving?!

Christmas time is here! Tomorrow is the big day, when all of us wake up (sometimes early in the morning – sometimes not so early) and we start opening up all the wrapping and bows which took wayyyy too long to fix.

This will be our 4th married Christmas together! In just a few short years of creating our own little traditions, we have found some favorites. Some of them are seemingly small, but are things we look forward to and want to continue when we have kids one day.
