IMG_5053.jpg

I’ve been drinking a lot of tea lately. Chai tea with almond milk to be exact. Our house is filled with different candles in each room. I’m currently loving the Spiced Cider scent from Bath and Body works. I bought it last week and the large jar is half way done. I love that it’s […]

Exactly two weeks ago, the fiance and I had a fun time frolicking in the wild to take our engagement pictures. You can see the behind-the-scenes look of that day here. We were in our natural surrounding as we both like nature and often go on hikes together on the weekend.   Today, I was […]

I see them being displayed at stores, then next I see the pumpkin patch locations in the neighborhood but the biggest […]
