Well, Rob wins. He surprised me with our dream vacation for our 6 year anniversary! I am still blown away at how hard he worked to make this trip possible, it is unreal and I feel so very spoiled. We traveled to Iceland, Italy & Switzerland. We got to rent a camper van in Iceland […]

If you have ever read ‘5 Love Languages’ you would know that giving & receiving gifts is a love language, and it is definitely mine 🙂 I honestly love spending time trying to think of the perfect gift. We had received this little gift in the mail a few weeks after an engagement session we […]

I can’t tell you how many times I ran back and forth to press the shutter! You would think we would own a remote by now, but we don’t and it is more fun to run and beat the timer! Here is a peek at a few bloopers during the process 🙂
