HI THERE! AND WELCOME TO MY LITTLE BLOG.

As an artist, photographer, wife, blogger, and cupcake enthusiast, this blog is my attempt at gathering and sharing the bits of pretty I find around me. I started blogging in 2008 (I think) and found that as I have grown and evolved as a human my blog has grown and evolved with me.

I met my husband and favorite human-being (Spencer) in a parking lot in June 2009 and after 2ish years of begging and pleading he finally married me on October 11, 2011 in the Salt Lake City Temple. Since then, we have lived in a tiny apartment, never owned matching bedding, used a blue plastic tub as a kitchen table, and fallen more and more in love with each other every day (gross, I know).

Have a question? I may have the answer!

WHO DESIGNED AND BUILT YOUR WEBSITE?
I did. And it was terrible. Next time, I’m paying someone. (AKA, I am not available for custom graphic design work, so sorry).

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE BLOG WITH SPENCER?
While I still think our his/hers blog was a fantastic idea, it unfortunately didn’t work out (sometimes even the best ideas don’t). Maybe one day we will have the time to have another go at it, I guess we will see. Also, when I sat down and thought about what I wanted to do with my blog with the time that I have to work on it, I realized the content wasn’t necessarily cohesive with our “he said, she said” format.
