Although I have quite a bit of time to plan my wedding (a little less than two years to get it all together) it’s never to early to starting pinning anything and everything on Pinterest! I don’t want to reveal any official plans yet since my fiance and I still have a lot of planning to do but I figure it wouldn’t hurt to share some images I feel inspired by on my secret bridal Pinterest board as a little Valentine’s Day treat.
Yes! I’m excited to be sitting here writing yet another tattoo post! I love tattoos and I find it as such a fun way for me to express who I am as a person. It’s hard to explain…but my tattoos make me feel more like myself.
Last November I get a peony tattoo that my boyfriend drew for me which I’ve been in love with ever since. In fact, that tattoo has inspired me to get a half sleeve of tattoos on my upper left arm of just flowers drawn by Austin. I’ve been waiting all year to add to it and finally I got around to adding a strawberry plant to my collection.Read More »
When I was 18 and leaving the nest I spent a lot of time getting to know myself as a person and thinking about the kind of person I wanted to be in the future. I thought about what I wanted for myself, including my expectations for potential relationships. One thing I never considered was me being in a traditional relationship in any shape or form.
I understand that most things in life are on a spectrum, especially human characteristics. When I was first stepping out into the world I saw myself in a “non-traditional” relationship in the sense that I would be completely dependent on my own personal finances, I would split cleaning and cooking 50/50 with my partner, I’d still rock my little mini skirts and crop tops, and I’d NEVER have a wedding. I didn’t even thinking I’d be in a serious relationship until I was at least 27 (very specific I know but I had a lot of free time to think these things through).
I’ve been in a (very) serious relationship for the past year and I’m finally coming face to face with the end of the Honeymoon Phase. It’s a concept that I’d been warned about back in high school when the shininess of a relationship faded fast. Since then I’ve had very little experience with this phenomenon. Needless to say, I don’t date much and therefore have no idea what to expect from this upcoming new phase in my relationship.

It’s a bit difficult to ask around for advice since relationships grow and evolve in different ways are there is no real way to know how to go about…how do I even describe it?
With Valentine’s still in the air, today I’d like to take a moment to reminisce about how I met my boyfriend, Austin. It’s hard to believe it has already been 7 ½ months since we met! It was June 23, 2015 and I was in the middle of another miserable summer in San Marcos, Texas. I was in a coffee shop downtown and was attempted to not be particularly noticeable to the people around me. The last thing I needed was any potential serial killers attempting to talk to me, right?
I was pretty embarrassed when Austin first approached me because I’m constantly a huge mess that also just so happens to not have a filter. When he first approached me I honestly tried to hide behind a menu! Austin still managed to start a conversation and we chatted for a solid hour and a half. I kid you not at one point I actually pulled out a knife from my purse to show him. WHY?? I dropped a ton of F-bombs and picked my underwear out of my ass multiple times. For whatever reason he still seemed interested in getting to know me so we ended up spending the whole day today.
I am in love with Ariana Grande. Plain and simple.
I talk about her all of the time, play her over the intercom speakers at work (despite my coworker’s protests. Y’all know you love her, too!), set photos of her as my background on all of my electronics, published drawings of her on the blog, and listen to her music pretty much every day since August (I snagged her second album for free on the Google Play Store last summer and I’ve been a changed person ever since).
