Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

Tampa, Florida. It is a beautiful place to photograph, but is my least favorite place that I’ve lived. As you can tell from the pictures, it is very neat and pristine. I felt that a lot of the people there matched the surroundings, everyone was trying so hard to be flawless. After all, Tampa is…

Hi’s and Goodbye’s

Life for Isaac and I has gotten very routine. I didn’t realize just how robot-like we had gotten until our recent vacation to Seabrook Island. Every week it’s the same exact thing, and we can’t do much about it. Because I have gotten so used to my routine, it was really difficult for me to relax…

Public Service Announcement: Coupons

I love a good deal. Who doesn’t?  I would totally use Groupon and Living Social more if I could remember to actually USE my dang coupons. The last two offers that I claimed sat on my virtual shelf for so long that they expired. What a waste of money! I decided that I am no…

Seabrook Island (A Dream Vacation)

Since Wednesday night Isaac and I have been vacationing in South Carolina on Seabrook island. It’s right near Kiawah and is very similar, but in our opinion is less stuffy and more peaceful. This island is filled with gorgeous trees, unbelievable mansions, and wildlife. We have seen countless deer, alligators, birds, crabs, and turtles. My…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

My fiance, father, and brother-in-law. I don’t remember the conversation they were having but I do know this is one of my favorite family pictures ever. I guess this is what you get when the man to woman ratio in the family is 3 to 5. They are definitely in touch with their feminine sides!…

The Marm Comes to Town

Last week my mom drove from Florida to North Carolina to help me knock out some wedding planning and to help my little sister move into a new apartment. Katy lives about 45 minutes from me so every day mom would bounce back and forth between our houses, helping both of us get our lives…

Some Things Never Change

This past weekend I drove to Northern Virginia to attend the wedding of a family friend. The ceremony was beautiful (albeit very hot, it was an outdoor wedding and the temp was 103 degrees) and the reception was a good time. I always enjoy a wedding, but my favorite part about the weekend trip was…

Happy Birthday, Isaac

Five years ago he was just a fellow intern at the Dolphin Research Center. I wasn’t looking for a relationship, in fact I had just gotten out of a relationship and was ready for some freedom, fun, and relaxation in the Florida Keys. One day at work he came out of the closet (no pun intended) wearing…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

For this weeks photo challenge, I browsed my photo library and came across a “fleeting moment picture” that my sister happened to snap. It makes me laugh every time I see it, so why not post for others to enjoy? I am a pretty clumsy person. My hands are constantly bruised due to the ape-like…
