Meet Tesoro Collective.

“This new online boutique features edited collections that are accessible to every budget, easy to shop, and infused with the most wanted looks of the moment. The second you get on to the site, you will instantly realized that it is a shopping experience you’ll want to come back to over and over again.” This project has been in the works for some time now and our team has worked extremely hard on it. It has been so inspiring to see the creativity, commitment, and passion that surfaces when you start to work on something you truly believe in. I have loved seeing this dream being made in to reality and I am so blessed to be a part of it all. I truly believe that someday Tesoro Collective will turn in to something bigger than any of us could ever imagine. I can’t wait to look back on this post in a few years and think about how fun it was to be there in the beginning of it all :)

| One Year Anniversary |

| All giddy during our first look |

This past Sunday, Zach and I celebrated our  O N E  year wedding anniversary. Not only have we made it through a year of marriage, but we have also made it through a year of living in NYC as newly weds. They say that if you make it through either of those things separately, you can make it through anything. I guess that means we are extra prepared to conquer whatever life throws at us (but I already knew that as long as I have my loving husband by my side). To be honest, instead of this year being the hardest, I actually thought it was the most fun. This year was about focusing on our relationship and growing as one. It was about savoring the simple things – our Sunday night walks, adding new broadway playbills to our growing collection, and watching old school Batman cartoons on the couch while eating popsicles. It’s been fun to see both of us take on this new role as husband and wife. We have grown so much in the last year and continue to teach each other how to love fearlessly and support one another through good times and bad. I could never repay Zach for how much joy and light that he brings in to my life…but I look forward to trying for many more years to come! I thought it would be fun to share a small glimpse into our first year of marriage with a few questions we both answered separately. Enjoy :)

Happy Fourth of July, guys!

I hope you are all enjoying your barbecues, parades, and sparklers today. This weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the year (especially since this one was EXTRA long). It is always full of fun and bursting at the seams with joy. I mean, how could you not be happy when celebrating America!? Our family spent all morning at our local parade and will be cheering on the Rockies at Coors Field tonight. I am so excited because we even get to see a firework show after the game (I have heard it is pretty spectacular). I don’t need much to make me happy on a day like today – all I ask for is a yummy hot dog and nice firework show, and that’s exactly what I’m going to get.

The Sweetest Summer Yet

Can you believe it’s already the first day of SUMMER!?

This year has seriously been going by way too fast. I need time to slow down a bit so I can have a moment to take it all in. So far, 2017 has been incredibly be good to me, and I have a feeling what’s yet to come will be no different. This is going to be the sweetest summer yet! How do I know this? Because I was lucky enough to kick off this perfectly sunny day with a few sweet (and heathy) treats at Chloe’s Fruit.

| 26 (and a half) |

Does anyone else out there celebrate their half birthday? Because I do!

Today is officially my half birthday and I am now 26 (and a half) years old. I know it sounds crazy, but I have always wanted a summer birthday. I have had this wish ever since I was a kid for many reasons. The first reason was the fact that in the summer there were always a bunch of fun birthday party ideas – like going to the waterpark, riding on rollercoaster rides, or even having a camp fire. When your birthday is during the cold winter months in Minnesota, it usually involves no one being able to make it to your party because the roads are covered in ice. And if anyone were able to make it, you were forced to stay inside so your faces wouldn’t freeze off. The second reason is the December birthday curse. For all of the December babies out there, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about! If your birthday happens to fall anywhere around Christmas time, you may or may not have experienced this said curse. It’s when either your birthday gift and Christmas gift are somehow combined in to being just one gift OR you want to celebrate and nobody is available because it is around the Holidays and everyone has prior commitments. I mean, it isn’t ALWAYS that way, but trust me, it definitely happens. That kind of curse is something a summer birthday will never have to experience.
