AUSTIN, TEXAS! One evening J and I were discussing our vacation days and dreamed aloud about possibly taking a trip together. I love love love traveling, especially to a place I’ve never been before.

My weekend was lovely: I got off of work early and drove three hours listening to an old country music mix. I hugged the other bridesmaids and we went to see the bride’s new home. We practiced walking with our groomsmen then went to a barbecue dinner where we toasted our dear friend on her
Hello dear readers! Happy Friday. :) Is it me or is this the coveted wedding weekend of the year? About five of my coworkers are going to a wedding this weekend, and luckily I am too. One of my very best friends is getting married tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier for her. Being a
