A few weeks ago I had the privilege of being used, yet again, as a prop for the lovely and talented Ashley Noelle Photography.

A few weekends ago, I had the privilege of being used as a prop by the talented Ashley Noelle Photography.

Two weeks ago my husband took me to New Mexico, our beloved wedding state, to celebrate my twenty-fourth birthday. As we drove into Santa Fe a wave of sweet memories flooded my mind. Every year, for the last several years, we have made it a priority to spend at least a weekend in the cool, dry city of Santa Fe. And then of course it is also the place we exchanged vows and our lives were forever changed just a short two and a half years ago. After checking into the hotel we go

Joy in the Season Always on the search for understanding, I began pondering WHY exactly I love the Christmas season so much. Yes I know there are hundreds of songs written, movies produced, and memories shared, but I encourage you to search out your OWN personal reason for finding joy
