Holiday Gift Guides 

Only one week until Christmas - I can't believe it!! The end of this year has just been flying by and I'm trying so hard to savor every moment. Another year is about to begin and while I love the sense of refresh it brings, I just feel like life is flying by! This year is going to be a strange Christmas for me.

Our Wedding Day

This post has been a long time coming! Patrick and I recently celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary last month and we seriously can't figure out where the time has gone! We weren't able to celebrate it the way we wanted - we were supposed to be in Bermuda for a little celebratory getaway but our pup tore her ACL and had emergency surgery 2 weeks before we were planning to leave! So, instead, we celebrated at home with our recuperating pup looking at all our wedding pictures, watching our wedding video, cooking an amazing meal together and eating the top tier of our wedding cake that had been sitting in our freezer {which was just as delicious as we remember!} ...
