The months leading up to my son Archer’s debut into this world were hard. During my first trimester I struggled with depression quite badly. When I found out I was pregnant I stopped taking anti-depressants that I was on for migraines and fibromyalgia and had the worst withdrawal for about a week. I had no […]

We’ve all heard parents claim they’re raising children. But, the statement itself is not true. Parents are actually raising grownups (more specifically, adults). The distinction between the two is pretty important though, because when you break down the definition of the two, you’ve got this..

Kirsten and Kevin had a beautiful Christmas wedding last month at the BVFRD Banquet Hall, and it did not disappoint!

When I got married in September, I had no idea how trying it was going to be to change my name, and I had no idea where to start. Luckily, before I was too deep into researching it myself, a friend of mine recommended the website Miss Now Mrs., and I never looked back! I […]

I almost forgot to share my favorite wedding day pictures from OUR wedding, you guys! We Tahoe’d the knot in Lake Tahoe, and Chelsea Schaefer Photography did an amazing job capturing it, and there are SO many pictures that I love! I can’t figure out which ones I want to frame. I’m going to need a […]
