celebrate good times - come on!


this past weekend, my husband and i celebrated December 17, 2012 with our closest of family and friends at Traditions on Parris Island Marine Corps Base in South Carolina. my heart is beyond full...

i am in so much more in love with this man than on the day that i said "i do" to him on a beach on Maui with the Hawaiian sun setting in the background.

i feel so blessed by my family and my close friends who surrounded us with their love for me and Ryan. i could not have asked to know and be loved by so many incredible people.

i am forever grateful to God...for his goodness and grace in my life. i am so undeserving of His love yet He is so good to me.


i could not have asked for a more amazing night of celebration. every single conversation shared, hugs and kisses exchanged, laughter that escaped from the pits of our stomachs, dances on the dance floor, and the taste of red velvet cupcakes...every single detail of that night could not have been more perfect!

more pictures and thoughts to come, so stand by...but until then enjoy this clip from the other night of mine and my dad's not so typical father-daughter dance:




much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}
