At the end of 2018 I said that I had a bunch of new partnerships lined up for the blog and for Instagram for 2019… One of them that I started sharing about is how I am taking all of my self care down to the basics and riding my life of things that are actually harmful for myself and my family. (Read all about that here)
A Mini-Moon! A couples adventure
SO, Aaron and I didn’t take a honey moon and we probably won’t end up taking one honestly…. We are putting our wedding money and the gifts that we are given toward other opportunities to travel as a family and to a house! With that said, we took a little trip to Taos right before Christmas to get away just the two of us! We hadn’t ever done a trip that was just the two of us and man was it so fun! We both love to explore and see new things… and if it has to do with the outdoors then he is ALL IN.
Mom Always Knew Best
Growing up I remember my mom being called a hippie. Because she wanted to shop organic and use all natural products in the home people thought she was an oddball. I have always followed here footsteps and wanted to be healthy and find the most natural products that I can. However, now that I have a home of my own and a family to keep safe I have started researching more about the little things that I had never thought twice about.
Christmas is Coming!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. CHRISTMAS TIME!!!! I know that I was told a million times as I got older that Christmas is better when you have kids because you get to relive all the magic of the season and I 100% agree. It is SO. MUCH. FUN. We have been adding and making up new Christmas traditions for our little family. Christmas lights, movie nights, gingerbread villages, and going to Christmas tree lots to name a few!
I LOVE getting and giving gifts! Putting together a super thoughtful gift is the best! Or finding that gift that totally is perfect for someone… such a good feeling. So I am sitting down with Aaron to create the our gift guides for Men, Women, and Kiddos!
We used Amazon for these gift guides because if you are anything like us you are probably a last minute shopper too. Everything in our guide can be ordered via Amazon Prime (two day shipping)!
Almost a Month
Marriage has been a crazy time! I just wanted to come on here and be super real and raw about what is going on and how I am processing it all. (If you didn’t know I got married check out that post here!) I feel like I think best on paper… So grab your cup of coffee and here we go!
We got married
On November 8, 2018, Aaron and I had a very, VERY big day. That morning we went to court to try to gain primary custody of our daughter AND we also got married that night. In the back room of our favorite coffee shop we exchanged vows. We vowed to love and care for each other the rest of our lives. We vowed to be a family. So why did we decide to get married on such a big day already? Well, it is kinda a long story… but I will do my best to explain. Aaron and I already had a date set for our wedding ceremony June 15, 2019. (That day we are still going to be having our ceremony with friends and family.)
