Memorial Weekend

Memorial Weekend has officially become my favorite holiday. What I most love about this "holiday" is the opportunity to bring so many friends together for a party...and reuniting with my college friends for a weekend of sunshine, bbqs, games, and laughter.

All of my picture are posted at - check out the fun!

Celebrating TODAY!

Five years ago today, Chris and I were married at the Ocean Cliff in Newport. Despite all the excitement we've shared over these years together, this day - our wedding day - remains the happiest, most beautiful day of my life. I feel so blessed to have married such an amazing man, a caring and thoughtful father, an attentive husband, my best friend. This Fall we will celebrate 10 years of togetherness...which blows my mind. Here's to MANY more years of celebrating with the greatest love in my life.
Ode to my love
i love waking every morning
my true partner by my side
no matter how i'm feeling
in you i can confide
i love taking evening walks
playing ping pong too
i love hiking in the woods
with daddy, dean, and drew
i love that we are explorers
even without travel far
i love sitting in the living room
listening to you play guitar
i love nights out with our friends
or nights spent on our own
i love the family we created
and our beautiful home
i love that you are my partner
in the true sense of the word
i love that you can love me
even when i am absurd
i couldn't be more proud,
more happy or more blessed
and when we met 15 years ago
i never would've guessed
a friend i met in college
would be the love of my life
i want you to know
i'm so proud to be your wife
