Our one year wedding anniversary is August 30th and I wanted to celebrate by sharing some wedding photos!

The only time I felt nervous butterflies on our wedding day was right before my Dad and I began walking down the aisle. Admittedly, I think it was because I was walking on grass in heels towards every person I know and love and they would all be staring at me. It could have been a tiny bit of nerves and excitement, though I was unusually calm and serene the entire day. I was a tiny bit shaky once I got to the front and the ceremony officially began, but a nearby goat that decided to join in and cheer us on during our vows broke the tension. Through the goat, some strong wind, bright sun, and the struggle to get the rings on (but really, is it easy for anyone to get each others rings on during the ceremony?), we had some laughs and definitely some tears throughout the very short ceremony. Once the “I do’s” and the kiss came, I could not contain my absolute joy and basically danced down the aisle!

I am the one in the family that is obsessed with taking photos, especially during the holidays. Luckily for me, everyone had to comply and happily take photos with me. I attempted to create a shoot list for the portraits, but left it behind, figuring we could wing it. We took plenty of photos, and I wish I could share them all; our photographer took the most he has ever taken at a wedding! I could have kept going a bit longer, but we were itching to get to our party!

11270179_10152770016042234_6749361598921470572_nOur wedding day was the best day of my life. Every single cliche you hear about wedding days? It’s all true. It goes by in what seems like the blink of an eye, it is the best day of your life, and there is actually such thing as post wedding depression. We planned the wedding without hired help and I have never been so stressed in my life, especially the month leading in. After it was over, I was able to let out a huge sigh of relief, and at the same time, when we left Sacramento to come back to LA, I cried. I was going to miss the experience and the day so much. The most amazing thing was to have all my loved ones in the same place at the same time. I will never forget the happiness I felt seeing faces that are usually scattered across the state, even the country, all with me at one time.

We had a simple wedding, held on a farm in Sacramento, California. We planned it to be fun; It is supposed to be a party! We had a photobooth, games, dancing, of course, and a jumping pillow. That’s right, an adult bounce house built right into the ground. We’ve heard time and time again that it was the most fun wedding people have been to; I am biased, so of course I agree! Looking back, there is absolutely nothing I would change, even the little mishaps here and there. They all led up to and created the most beautiful and loving day I have ever been a part of.

Getting ready, I was surprisingly not nervous. I felt nerves as the months and weeks crept closer, but the morning of, I was the most calm of everyone around me. I was almost worried that I did not feel nervous; on any normal day, I am a complete ball of worry, the mom of the group. My mom told me she was surprised I didn’t have an ulcer by the time I was 12. You’re 20 minutes late and not answering your phone? You must be in a horrific accident. Not this day though. I was calm, collected, serene. Everything was running smoothly, as far as anyone let me know, and I was going to marry my match.

I hope you enjoy this peak into the most perfect day.

We know I love a good jumpsuit! I do have a couple more in my closet and wouldn’t be opposed to add to my growing collection!

Look, I do smile! I tend to not full on smile in blog photos – no reason why. I think I was smiling in theses photos because David was following me down the street, like my own personal paparazzi. This is actually my embarrassed smile; It was a Sunday morning, prime brunch time and the street traffic was heavy.

This is my last day before entering my last year of my twenties. It’s like my own personal New Year’s Eve. I have always thought that the real start of a new year was on your birthday, because, that literally is the end and beginning of a new year for you. I don’t make resolutions, but I do tend to make a mental list of goals and personal priorities to continue to better myself. I am hoping that this year I actually follow through. Maybe I should write it down! Has anyone ever done one of those “30 things before 30” goal lists and been successful with it?

I don’t know how I feel about getting older. I think I am generally okay with it; I’ve always been an old lady at heart anyway!

It’s that time of week again; TGIF! I have not looked forward to weekends as much as I have the last few weeks. Work has been pretty crazy and it is finally starting to wind down, just about the same time as my weekends are picking up! One of my best friends is coming into town and we are planning what we call an old lady weekend; some pilates, some shopping, maybe some baking and cooking. Very low key, very opposite of a party weekend. We couldn’t be more excited!

I’ve been desperate to go shopping; my wardrobe is in dire need of an overhaul as my style is maturing and changing. I’ve been window shopping online quite a bit to figure out the type of items I might be looking for. Here are a couple looks I found via SheIn.com! I am very into simple, monochromatic, classic, and clean.

Weekend Wear
Perfect Picnic

Also, what is a Friday without some of my favorite Internet finds of the week? Oh, a Friday that I am being totally lazy, perhaps, like the last couple I suppose. I am trying to find a balance between real work life, blog life, and how I want it to look. It might take me a while but I really do want to keep my little corner of the Internet alive and spend more time here.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Alright, I know I am not actually jumping for joy in these photos, but I am in love with a good jumpsuit and this is one of the good ones. I spied this baby on the Crossroads Instagram a couple months back as a part of their new merchandise stock and did not wait to run to my local store to pick it up. It’s so perfect. I think I wore it three days in a row last week. This might be why I only post once a week or so; I get obsessed with a certain outfit and I basically wear it out.

p.s. I want to wear this flower crown every day.

It has already been a super long week for me, although it’s only Wednesday. I am planning a super quiet weekend with a lot of sleep! I am beginning to realize just how much sleep I get and deprive myself of and it’s definitely catching up to me.

I was so deliriously happy with the rain in So Cal this weekend! While everyone else was complaining, I was running to my windows every time I saw the lightening flash and heard the thunder shake our windows. This weekend was spent running errands and giving our apartment a good deep cleaning. We spent Saturday night indulging in a Top Chef catch up marathon, listening to the rain, and ordering in food. So simple, and so perfect.

We may have had ourselves a little rain storm, but it was still super warm out! I love this denim mini skirt I picked up from Crossroads and have so many things to pair it with, but started with this flowy blouse from SheIn for the perfect casual weekend outfit.

Towards the end of our photo session, we got caught in some more wind and the beginning of some more rain. I wasn’t complaining!

I hope you are enjoying your week! I can’t believe it’s almost August! Why does the time go by so much faster the older you get? I am trying to find a way to slow down and enjoy the moment, instead of thinking what’s coming ahead and missing the present.

Happy Friday on this hot hot hot holiday weekend! The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays and I am so happy to be home spending it with my family, while being able to celebrate both, my brother and my sister’s brithdays as well. It’s a short trip, so I am packing it all in and will probably hate Monday morning just a tiny bit more next week.

I hope you have a fantastic holiday!

How cute is this photobooth set up we had at work!

  • Well, you can’t say that Shia LaBeouf isn’t passionate about life and he certainly isn’t wrong!
  • Beauty is more than skin deep and YouTube vlogger, My Pale Skin, shut down the haters completely. She is beautiful. Also, grab a tissue.
  • This Mother-Daughter dance duo is everything! #Goals
  • I am a bit old school and prefer books, newspapers, and magazines over reading online, and Ikea’s Apple mockery is kind of the best.
  • In defense of “fat” trainers. Fitness is measured in strength and ability, not necessarily how thin or cut you are.
  • Speaking of fit,  Aly Raisman’s body is amazing. Fit goals, for sure.
  • Do you want to turn into a Victoria’s Secret model? All you need to do is undergo hell.
  • Or, you can love and accept your beautiful, strong, amazing body be your own Victoria’s Secret model!
  • NSFW: I am officially scared and in love with Rihanna.
  • Remember when Taylor Swift got her panties in a wad over Apple’s new streaming service and it only took them 5 minuts to bow down and change their mind for her? Do you secretly wonder if they were in cahoots?
  • We need more women like Amy Schumer. Until then, let’s just watch her new show.
  • I am so glad I don’t have to be in the dating scene these days, I could not image. I’d be terrible. Just watching this “First Textual Experience” gives me anxiety.
