Anisha and Amar had a warmth about them that was evident and endearing from the time we met on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. As they told me about their love story I couldn’t help but take special note of how they had to do long distance for a period of time. Like other couples who wade the storms of long distance, they came through triumphantly. One thing I have observed in couples who have weathered the hardship of long distance is a deeper level of gratitude for each other. They know the true value of quality time and even the smallest brush of physical touch seems so rewarding. Anisha was at home in Amar’s arms. There was an ease and effortlessness to their relationship that was present during our time together.
When I was pregnant with our first son, Asher, I spent hours pouring over the internet for the best diaper bag. When it was all said and done I didn’t even buy a bag. We ended up making an emergency trip to Nashville when Asher was two months and think, for some reason, that I had to have a diaper bag, I dashed out to Target. I ended up buying this hideous gray monstrosity of a thing that I hated it then and I hate it to this day. It’s very large and I filled it with pointless items that have never been used once, yet, I carried it around for months. CHOOSING LESS OVER MORE One of my goals in 2017 is to live more simply.

How do I plan on doing this? By removing extra decisions in my life on what clothes to wear, getting rid of items that are […]
COLORADO INTIMATE WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS One of the things I have come to love is small intimate weddings and elopements. I recently read about someone griping on stylized shoots and how they give the impression that you can trape into the woods and have a wedding when that’s just not possible. In the state of Colorado, it is possible! You don’t even need an officiant in the state of Colorado to get married. Finding a quiet spot that has special meaning to you and your beloved is literally all you need. The amount of detail that you wish to incorporate with special meaning truly is up to you. IS IT THE WEDDING OR YOUR MARRIAGE THAT’S THE FOCUS? I personally struggled with losing site of what Jerry and my wedding was about. Not wanting to go into debt with our wedding we had to let go of a lot of the things that I viewed as important to keep our guest list of 300+. It’s amazing in hindsight how much I would have changed about our day. Don’t get me wrong, it was beautiful and it portrayed who we were but I know for a fact that I went a little too […]
