Downtown Mckinney Date Night

One of my favorite spots in the Dallas area for date night is the Historic Downtown in Mckinney. The whole area looks like Stars Hollow come to life - I almost expect to run into Taylor Doose trying to wrangle you into a town hall meeting. The whole...

The Best Summer Skincare

Summer is my favorite time of the year. Growing up, I would live for summers. Night swimming at the pool, long days in the sun - even the smell of coconut makes me feel nostalgic. I wanted to share some of my favorite skincare I've been reaching for...

The Best Disney Scrapbook

It's no secret that we have tons of photos of our travels. What might be a secret is how much I love photo albums. Things I can tangibly hold - chunky and full of memories that I can thumb through whenever the urge arrives. My favorite place to get ...

Seven Lesson’s in Seven Years of Marriage

Tomorrow, David and I have been married for seven years. That's absolutely WILD to me. I know that people talk about how fast time goes, but it's really true. The past seven years have been the happiest marriage of my life. David and I are big belie...
