1 year & 11 month’s


In exactly one month we will be celebrating two years of marriage. Holy freaking smokes! I wish I had something more to say but I’m kind of still realing with emotion. A theme lately. 

So here’s to the last month of our second year of marriage. 




Only because I make him take a selfie with me whenever we are in the same state. He does enjoy he’s just mastered the annoyed look. 

**Happy Saturday**

And then there was a wedding

  Welp. The wedding has come and gone but I’m still living in the happy emotions of that day. Honestly, thinking back to last Saturday is the only thing keeping me moving forward this week. #reallytired

It was like a mini family reunion. Those lovely ladies on the left (in each photo) live a 4.5 hour drive away from Portland. It took a wedding in California for us to see eachother. Planning a drive east this July. 

 And I got to spend an evening dressed up with this guy. It’s so incredibly “basic” of me but I left this wedding with a very full and happy heart. 

I am not ready to fully express my full emotions from that day. I couldn’t even get through my speech without turning into a blubbering mess. But I’m am so happy I got to stand up there and whole heartedly support people I love.

Story’s in love

I’m feeling especially emotional this week before my best friend gets married Saturday. (See you soon)

Love is funny thing. Love can be a many things. Loving a other person, pet, or object. We say that we love a lot of stuff (and people). But do we ever truly love, unconditionally love? 

I believe we can and do, the road getting there is just not always easy. I know our road hasn’t been and will not always be. What fun would that be anyways? 

I love love. I love experiencing love and I love watching other people experience love. To watch two people in love is amazing and reminds me there is some faith in humanity. With everything going on in the world today I’m so happy to escape it (even just for the weekend) to watch my bestie get married. 

Sometimes I need to revert into my bubble. This world is a crazy scary place. 

My brain is fried…


It’s only Wednesday…. I’m so ready for the weekend. Do you ever have those weeks where they just feel never ending and everything just feels mentally exhausting? Yea, that’s me this week. 

My job isn’t really that stressful but some recent issues have raised (can’t talk about publically) that has just made it hard. Hard as in I don’t even want to walk into the office. Maybe even just drive past the office. 

Even just dealing with people has become daunting. I’m usually pretty good at not letting things get to me. But man, this week is different. Getting yelled at or being told I’m not smart enough (all by customers) has just pushed me over the edge. 

I finally just accepted it this morning that my brain is mentally fried. I’m not doing enough of the small things that make me happy. I’m letting too much work come home with me. I just need to turn off and I honestly haven’t been doing it enough. 

Next week I have a three day week for my cousins wedding. Holler! Then another three day weekend after because of Memorial Day. Hopefully the two long weekends help rejuvenate this funk I seem to have sunken in….

I donated. 

 I didn’t take any photo’s during but the other day I donated blood. The American Red Cross is always in need and satistically one pint of blood (the amount you donate) saves three lives. THREE! How awesome is that?! 
I was terrified but knew deep down all would be fine. If you are able to donate please consider contacting the Red Cross to give.
