Where has this week gone?! It’s finally the weekend and it’s time to be intentional with relationships with friends and taking care of yourself. Happy weekend! So eat something healthy, tell someone you appreciate them, and live it up!

I feel silly for just discovering Humans of New York, but it’s so inspiring to hear stories of people from different stages in their lives. Everyone’s story is different, remember that.

OMG THIS. Pear and Gorgonnzola Crostini (video)

Faucet Face is an amazing organization that aids in the decrease of water-borne illness. And you get a sweet glass water bottle for your tap water at home.

Desiring God–awesome sermons and writings to make you think and want more of Him.

Do you and your family ride bikes, but can barely hear each other because of the wind? Seriously can get so annoying. Support my family’s new invention, Wind-Blox! It reduces wind noise so you can hear much better (and ride safer!).

From the engagement to the wedding, I looked at tons of websites, some of which were very cheesy. However there are those few that really stood out to me. If you’re planning a wedding, check out Ruffled. ┬áCute, on-trend ideas.

Lastly, because I’m going to sew one of these days, Colette Patterns.


Scheduling in the fun.


Life has been pretty busy around these parts, so between classes, new jobs for Drew and I, and the art of fixing up our new apartment, the only free time we have we want to spend together. Making dinner, running errands, even dates. As much as we love spending time with each other, hanging out with friends rarely happens. Soon our life will flow more seamlessly (maybe ;)) but for now, we’ll be scheduling friend time. It works, eh? So tonight, while he’s out with his buddy, I’m writing this post about hanging out with my buddy, Lauren. We went to a great coffee shop in NE Portland the other day and we got chai teas and talked about life. Here’s to lasting friendships after marriage!

P.s. Drew and I will have been married 3 months in just 2 days! Time is flying by! Movies are right about one thing: marrying your best friend the BEST.
