Sooo, let’s talk wedding shall we??

When Kevin proposed, we started the countdown to our wedding day. 11 months seemed like a REALLY long time! Now, we are a couple days shy of 6 months and we both cannot believe how the time is flying by!

In 184 days, we’ll be married!

Right now, I am really enjoying this season of life. It’s such a time of anticipation, preparing to get married. We are busy dreaming up ideas for our day, from what kind of flowers, to what kind of food. We walk around Target and Bed, Bath & Beyond, captured in thoughts of what we are going to fill our home with. We dream of laying on the beach on our honeymoon, after this season is done and a new one is just beginning. When my mind quiets down from all of the busy planning, which rarely happens, I can’t help but feel overwhelmed with thankfulness.

How did this happen to me?? Really, it still feels like it’s not happening… But it is. God placed a wonderful man in my life and am so so grateful!

On another note, I captured this photo of my ring for my photography class, and I really wanted to share it! Have I ever mentioned how much I love my ring? I LOVE it! I stare at it multiple times a day, thinking just how much I love it. Kevin got it from Brilliant Earth. Have you heard of it? They specialize in conflict-free diamonds and are very eco-friendly. Their store is located in San Francisco and someday, I hope to go there. 🙂

Any who, I hope to write more posts about my wedding soon! I’ll leave with a quote I found recently that I like a lot…

“Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, your risk is even greater.”  -Erica Jong



I’ve been on a baking hiatus.

There are lots of reasons for this, but the fact of the matter is… I’m back!

Today, I made chocolate chip cookies. Yep, just normal chocolate chip cookies but let me tell you, I was just so happy. I forgot what baking does to me! I stood in my two foot wide kitchen, stirring and thinking, I hope that I love baking for the rest of my life. I hope that I have more time in the future to bake. I hope I have a family to bake for. Like, little kids. So I can make yummy little treats for them.

Also, on another note.

I have been blasting Christmas music today. Yeah, it may be a little early, I will admit. But hey, it makes me happy and I’m excited so I will not stop.

I’m wearing my Christmas PJ’s to bed these days too.

It’s great.

It won’t be long that this season will be over and we will be starting preparations for next Christmas!!! (Yes, like how they do it in ELF!)

Anyway, this all relates you see. This baking today has got me thinking about all the baking I am going to do!  Christmas is a coming, and it will be a wonderful time to BAKE! I want to bake all sorts of things when I go home for Christmas break. So, I am going to start compiling my baking concoctions and be prepared. 🙂
