| 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 :)
| Staying On Time With JORD + Giveaway!!! |
Sometimes I wish that time could just stand still.
If you know me, then you know that I am constantly running late. It’s not a quality that I am particularly proud of, so it has been a continuous “work in progress”. I feel like I have tried everything from waking up earlier in the morning to being more organized about my time, but for some reason nothing seems to work. I always find myself asking “what time is it now?” and “when do we HAVE to leave?” or “I just need 5 more minutes!” I’m sure my husband knows these lines all too well haha.
After many trials and tribulations of trying to find new ways to be on time, I think I found a simple solution – wearing a watch. If I can carry time around with me, it is easier for me to stay present in the moment. I am easily distracted (which usually leads to me being late) so having a constant reminder of if i’m staying on schedule at my fingertips is so helpful! I know that this all should’ve hit me long before, but I never thought that I could be a “watch person”. I have skinny little wrists, so nothing ever fits correctly and I am easily annoyed by bulky jewelry. I knew that if I was going to try out a watch, it couldn’t just be any watch.
And that’s when JORD Wood Watches came in to my life.
| Weekends with Tobi |
Weekends have always been my favorite (shocker, I know) but I have fallen even more in love with them since moving to NYC. This city is always buzzing with a million things to do but it is really hard to make time and enjoy all of those things during the work week. The weekends are my time to explore New York to the fullest and I am always excited to see what adventures it has in store. I like to take on my weekends by only making about 50% of my plans…because this city has a funny way of showing you what you really wanted to do all along without actually knowing it! Since my adventures seem to be a little unpredictable, I never really know the right thing to wear. All I know is that I want to be comfortable (because NYC involves a lot of walking) and I also want to look as fabulous as possible (because every corner seems to be the perfect photo opportunity). And the real kicker is if my outfit can accomplish both of those things without breaking the bank!
That’s where Tobi comes in.

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.
