Hey friends! Can’t believe we are in 2020! This year has flown by. It almost feels like a blur. This year has been a year of growth, and development. With our recent miscarriage, to purchasing our new home, to being featured on several Houston TV shows, magazines, and even being a guest on Sunny 99.1 it’s been one heck of a year. My husband and I recently went over our goals for the next year, and we are so excited for what is in store. We have been truly blessed this year and can’t wait for what 2020 will bring. Check out our 2019 highlights below and goals for the new year!
We are less than two days till Christmas and a week away from NYE! Today is also my hubby’s birthday so I thought I would share one of my favorite NYE look with this gold metallic dress for under $100 I took with my handsome hubby. I love taking photos with him even though he is not a big fan of getting in front of the camera, because I love looking back at these memories. Plus I think my husband gets more handsome with age like a fine wine. Check out more of our look below!
Hope you are doing well! Today I am finally sharing our 2019 Christmas card pictures. We took them later than normal and only just mailed out our Christmas cards this past Friday. This year we decided to take our pictures in our home since this is the first Christmas we will be celebrating in our new home! Plus we wanted a picture with the whole family including our pets. Lol it definitely took a lot of patience to get one good picture, but we finally got it. And we got tons of priceless funny photos of our family and our pets. Check out our 2019 Christmas card pictures and our funny bloopers below!

Hope you are doing well! I am loving all the colder weather we have been getting down here in Houston. We love spending our time outside more now that the weather has been so much nicer. Jayden has been asking me to go camping, and since we didn’t have any upcoming trips planned I decided to take the experience to our backyard. I got a little creative and created this camping experience complete with a tent in our Springfree Trampoline! Check out more of our camping under the stars DIY with Springfree Trampoline below!

Hope ya’ll are doing well! Today I’m finally sharing one of our travel guides from our recent trip to Italy. I’m starting off with the first leg of our trip and sharing our adventures in Rome by Vespa. If you are going on a couples trip I highly recommend touring the city in a Vespa. It was the best experience ever, we covered so much ground, saved our feet from a lot of walking, and saved so much money from not having to take a Taxi. Plus it really does feel like it is straight from a romantic movie when you are riding a vespa around Rome with your significant other. Check out more of what we did, where we stayed in our travel guide below.
Hope y’all are having a great week! Today I am getting personal with ya’ll and sharing an update on our pregnancy. A month ago we announced early knowing there was a possibility it wasn’t a viable pregnancy. After weeks of many doctor visits, waiting it out, and trying all options we ended up having to get a D&C last week to end the pregnancy. I ended up having a last minute surgery the day before me and my mom’s trip to New York with Bio Oil. It was a whirlwind, and honestly I feel like I haven’t had a chance to finally stop and really process everything until these past couple of days since my husband has been home. Today am finally sharing our miscarriage story plus five things that have helped me cope with my first miscarriage. October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month, and hopefully sharing my story can help someone out there who is going through the same thing or has gone through the same thing feel like they are not alone, and also help them in the process.
Surprise! We are pregnant! We have been keeping a secret from ya’ll for over a month now and it has been one of the hardest secrets to keep. Some of ya’ll might have noticed do to my longer than usual absence on my blog, or my less frequent post on social media. These past couple weeks have been a blur. We’ve been so overjoyed by the news I wanted to shout it out from the rooftops. But it wasn’t till recently when we went for our first midwife appointment a week ago, and receiving some uncertain news that we decided we would share the news now even though we are not past our first trimester. Today on the blog I am sharing these beautiful photos our photographer took, more details of our pregnancy, and why we are choosing faith over fear. Read more below.
