Our Santa Barbara Wedding

Our wedding day….. Part II. For the most part, I think I was an easy-going bride. There were some details I was very specific about like the table setting and the menu selections. I also knew I wanted an ice luge with purple flowers for tequila drinks.  I am a huge fan of treats and sweets, […]

Pregnancy Announcement Cards on Etsy

We wanted to more formally share our baby news with our long-distance family and friends, so I scoured the Internet and found adorable pregnancy announcements from Minted. Since we do not want to find out what we are having, we had to pick gender neutral colors to keep everyone guessing. The announcement card we selected is […]
