I’ve spent the greater part of the afternoon looking through old pictures stored on our portable hard drive. I’m amazed at how long we have been together, and how we have grown and changed in the past five years. Three houses, our wedding, Piper. When I first graduated and moved to Lakeland in 2010, Will… Continue reading Looking back
I had a funny feeling while recording Will the other evening. We were filming some videos for his new YouTube account, when I began to feel as though we were living out a scene in some imagined indie movie. Will carted all of his equipment out in front of Liberty, his VW bus. The sun… Continue reading Sky Dance
For three years we have fed one another, nurtured one another, and loved one another. This morning I woke up to the deepest chocolate cupcakes with jelly-red hearts swimming in ganache in celebration of our anniversary.

We spread our blanket beside… Continue reading A picnic, a walk, a time together.

Yesterday I celebrated my 26th birthday with my husband, our daughter, and my parents. I am a very fortunate woman to be married to such a hopelessly romantic man! Upon waking, I found banners hanging above the sliding French doors and above our wedding photo. My husband stood before the stove preparing a quick breakfast before… Continue reading Orange infused olive oil cake with chocolate and plenty of raspberries, for me, on my birthday!
