I took a breath as I crossed the threshold of the coffee shop, scanning the room for the face I had only seen in a photograph. When my eyes finally landed on his, it was comical that we were dressed the same. I in my short-sleeved chambray dress, and he in an almost identical denim [...]

Dreams came true this New Year's Eve, people! I got to spend the day helping coordinate and set up for a sweet friend's wedding then ring 2021 at a swanky party! A couple years ago as Peyton & I chatted over breakfast at one of our fave local spots, she mentioned dreams of a New [...]
