4th of July in North Augusta

On Thursday we had plans to eat dinner at Mike’s sister’s house.  They have the biggest backyard on the block (possibly in Aiken) and always host a great cook-out.  Then at 2:00 that afternoon Mike and I had a crisis of plans and decided to venture to the river in an effort to see some […]

Our Engagement

Visiting Western North Carolina

The engagement edition. I lived in Asheville for a few months while interning at WNC Magazine. On my 22nd birthday, Mike drove up with a little surprise.  You can read that story here. Tomorrow is my 24th birthday and the 2 year anniversary of our engagement. This post is mostly about the hike: Pisgah Trail […]

Married to the Law

*This post has been updated as of September  I might get in trouble for posting some of these pics. OH WELL. I get a lot of questions about Mike’s job.  His schedule.  His duties.  Things like that.  When I tell people, their reaction is usually either awe, curiosity, or pity.  Sometimes a combination of the […]

1 Year with Mike

One year of marriage. One year of tolerance, acceptance, compromise, frustration, laughter, love, and friendship. One year of togetherness. One year of forgiveness. “Love doesn’t just happen to you. It is a choice, and represents a commitment. You must choose to love. Love is not an emotion. It’s something we do that can produce an […]

Valentine’s Day.

Not to be confused with “Valentimes.”  Does it drive you nuts when people say that? Mike and I shared a pretty low-key V-day this year.  We had a quiet dinner at Augsburg Haus in Evan’s, GA, and enjoyed a hefty discount on our dinner because the restaurant owner (aptly named Adolf) is friends with one […]

Hey Valentine’s Day is about to happen

Right? It totally snuck up on me, too. If any of you are planning on getting me a gift, I put together this helpful wish list.  In no particular order, I present, “Things I Want for Valentine’s Day (And Every Other Day of the Year).” 1. Sweeatheart COOKIES. Way better than those stupid sweetheart candies. […]

A Date

On Friday night, Mike and I ventured across the river and went on a date in Augusta. We ate dinner at the Pizza Joint and then walked along the riverfront for a while. This is what I wore. We sat on the back deck of the restaurant. I drank wine out of a plastic cup and […]

A Year Ago Today…

A year ago today, Mike surprised me at my internship, cookie cake in hand, and popped the question. Naturally I was more excited about the cookie cake. LAWL JK. Kind of. (He also had a bouquet of flowers and gorgeous diamond, obvi). I hiked 3 miles up a mountain before I figured out what was […]

Punta Cana Week in Paradise: Part 2

I decided to split the honeymoon recap up into two posts due to the sheer volume of photos I wanted to share. In reality, I probably could have split it up into 23452452 posts and still not have been satisfied… Day 4 was pretty much solid rain all morning, but we escaped the hotel room […]
