The Greenbrier 2019

Well, another year, another Greenbrier blog post! I doubt that I’ll ever get tired of walking the Dorothy Draper designed halls that are so tacky and so wonderful. I love hearing the history from Chris, and I learn something new each time we go! This year, we got there quite a bit earlier than usual […]

DIY Gingerbread Houses

I feel like, by definition, gingerbread houses are pretty DIY in nature anyway 😂 But I feel like I went the extra mile by actually making the gingerbread and cutting out all the pieces for the houses! I didn’t want to spend all the money on a kit, and I figured it couldn’t be that hard. […]

About two weeks ago I had an idea to gift my parents with a fun anniversary photo session. The last time I remember doing a specific photoshoot or my parents was 2011! Which is just not acceptable as a photographer 😄 Also, please do yourself a favor and look at the photos from 2011 and have a […]

It’s so hard to believe that our sweet niece is already a year old! It seems like it wasn’t that long ago we were meeting her for the first time, all tiny and squishy and new. She has grown into an adorable little toddler, and she’s so smart! Her first birthday party was on Saturday, […]

Not only was this the first snow of 2020, but it was also the first snow all winter! The past few years in Virginia, it hasn’t been unusual for most of our big snows to happen January-March. But we typically get at least a small amount of snow in December! But 2019 was just too […]

It is insane to me that this is the end of an entire decade! And I just realized that I’ve been blogging for well over a decade (since 2008!)… How on earth that happened, I have no idea. So much has changed since then! Blogging has seen me as I graduated high school, started working […]

Wow, what a year it’s been! And what a wonderful Christmas we had. I decided to do one post to catch up on all the Christmas photos I have, instead of trying to do a bunch of posts. On the 17th, we took Joelle and some of her friends to Christmas Town! It ended up […]
