Moving.

[button animation=”fadeIn” link_url=”https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxLFD9VZ1SHLpCCWuAhX_DA” title=”SUBSCRIBE TO MY VLOG” color=”#ffffff” background=”#db135c”]   I thought home for us would be a few things – comfort, togetherness, and a place to settle. It hasn’t been that yet. When we moved, we knew that there would be good, and bad that came with it, but we never imagined the first three months […]

Meeting the Dietitian

This week was eventful and extremely helpful for me. Aside from setting an accidental fire at home, my apartment losing a really good package from Sephora, and other things, I did something a little less…exciting, but still good in its own way. I’ve had a few referrals from my doctor on specialists I needed to […]

The scariest, most open VLOG I’ve ever posted.

All weekend I thought about how I wanted to tackle this post and why I was doing it. It was hard, and everything in me says not to post it, but I decided to go against everything I think, because I think this is a healthy process for me. It will be three months in […]

Getting over a hard week.

You know when you feel crappy, but you put it on the back burner? You’re busy, you’re tired, you don’t have time, you’re trying to focus on other things. It’s just not a priority. Well, I did that, and it put me in a really bad place. If you’ve observed my cyptic social posts and […]

All the things no one ever tells you about your wedding.

  Bryan and I got married on the September 18th that’s confusing, right? Well, we’re still going to Paris to exchange vows, but needed a marriage license to make it official and validated in the U.S. We decided to get hitched early, but our families wanted to come along too, so we had a tiny ceremony […]

Alllllllll of the dress I didn’t buy.

I wanted to share this post because despite the incredible sense of dread I felt about dress shopping, now that I’ve given away all of my money for a dress I’ll wear twice (just kidding, but seriously, I wanted to faint on that swipe!) it was actually all very fun. I initially hated the thought […]

When you’re waiting to get married, time moves so SLOWLY.

I’ve come back to blogging every so often. My mind is less crowded with things lately, and for MONTHS I’ve tried to write things that are meaningful to me, but I just couldn’t get the words out. One of my latest thoughts has been about how September 2016 seems SO FAR AWAY, and it is.  Bryan […]

2-2-2: an exercise in dating my fiancé.

Dating my fiancé? Yeah, you read it right! Being in a relationship isn’t as easy is seems. It takes a lot of work, every single day, to give love and to receive love. I work harder at my relationship with Bryan than I do anything else. It’s one of the most important things I’ve got in […]

From long to short.

For as long as I could remember, I’ve been wearing weaves, hair extensions, and whatever else I could to cover up my own crazy locks. When I first wasn’t sure how to control PCOS, or what vitamins to take, my hair would fall out in huge chunks, and hair extensions were a better alternative. Most […]

5 things I learned from meditation.

Meditation means lots of different things to different people. For me, I decided that it was a moment to pause, listen to some calming music, breathe, unplug, and get away from the world and in tune with myself for 20 minutes – no thinking, just being.

Tales from an off-beat bride.

Today I’ve been engaged to Bryan for two full months, and as I’ve been trying to get a handle on what I wanted (Bryan says he’d just show up, with the only request being that WE have fun that day), I realized something – I don’t want the craziness I actually thought I wanted.  Before I got engaged, […]

Wedding dress shopping: the great, the good and the ugly.

Yesterday was my first wedding dress shopping excursion. Initially, my mom, my best friend, and I were going to go, but my mom got sick in the late half of the week and couldn’t join us, so it was up to Katie and I to take sufficient pictures, and laugh extremely loud at bad dresses so […]

Butternut Squash Bisque

It’s been a while since i’ve checked in. I think since my last post, I bought a spin bike (so I could workout at home, every day, NO EXCUSES), and Bryan and I started working out together since the first time in forever! I also started a very fun project that I can’t wait to unveil […]

Cleaning out my Kitchen.

Sometimes you clean out your kitchen cabinets of all of the CRAP you have, and then you write a manifesto about it.
