under the sea

Sunday, April 5

Our favorite Christmas present this year was David's GoPro camera (thanks Mom & Dad). It was amazing to capture the fun moments that we usually don't get to take because our good camera doesn't like salt water. Like snorkeling! Unfortunately, the day we went the waters were really choppy so we didn't get to see a ton of fish but the bright blue water and coral were enough for me. I loved it! Now if I could just get up the nerve to scuba. :)

I made a little video out of some clips we took around the island. It gives you a little glimpse of the beauty of this place, although there is so much missing. Click here for it.

PS: Happy happy Easter! God is so good.

the beautiful few days we spent in paradise...

Monday, March 16

It's no secret that David and I love to travel especially when it's somewhere warm & tropical. So when our friends Kimberly and Kurt suggested a New Years trip to a resort in the Bahamas at the end of December we couldn't pass it up. And it really was the best way to ring in 2015...with friends, a glass of champers in hand and the beach. The pictures don't do the beauty of Nassau justice. I'll never forget as we were flying in and looking out the plane window straight to the bottom of the ocean. The water is crystal clear and the hues of blues & greens were breathtaking. There's just something about the ocean that is good for the soul.

I can't help but share this photo of my amazing Kimberly. She is such a loyal, loving and kind person and I'm so lucky to call her one of my best friends. We spent much of the trip talking about our old stories from college and living in our shoe-box NYC apartment right after graduation. The boys probably got sick of it by the end of the trip (haha, sorry guys). But we loved it! Her birthday last week - so happy birthday my love! Cheers to more couples trips and pink cadillacs :)

Sunset was my favorite time of day. Most nights we would grab a cocktail and find a quiet spot to sit and chat until dinner. 

{I'll be sharing more fun underwater photos from our new favorite toy - the GoPro - soon!}

This was our view for most of the five days. We spent the morning curled up in the sun with our books and a pina colada. How nice it was to have time to start & finish two books this trip! I read the The Husband's Secrets & Wild - both amazing reads. In the afternoons we went snorkeling, jet skiing, kayaking and spent a really lovely few hours at their spa. A deep tissue massage is my kind of bliss. :) 

Our motto is that life's too short not to get out there and explore the world! We always leave our trips feeling rejuvenated, excited about life and inspired. This trip was no exception. 

Life lately

Friday, March 6

It's been so long since I sat down to write a post that I've almost forgotten how to do it. I figured the easiest place to start was a little update of what we've been up to the past few months...according to our iPhones. :) The end of 2014 brought so much heartache but through all of it we have also experienced so many blessings. I'm happy to be back in a spot where I can create and write again. I've missed this blog and all of you. Thanks for sharing in this ride with me, for tuning in and encouraging me to come back to this little place. xoxo

fall is here and I couldn't be happier

Friday, October 17

It just so happens that as I write this my windows are wide open which means a) the humidity has reached more reasonable levels and b) October is in full swing. 

The fall is super weird here in Houston, I've said it here before. I'll say it again too: one day it's 95 degrees and the next day it barely reaches 70 which has you breaking out the wool sweaters and boots. But I still get excited about it because it's my favorite time of year which means....

Pumpkin bread, pumpkin candles, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin beer...you get the picture. Speaking of beer, there's also football. Re-runs of You've Got Mail (which also happens to be my favorite movie of all time, it's official). Soup weather. The return of all our favorite TV shows - like Homeland (have y'all been watching?! omg, omg). Charlotte's halloween costumes. The stuffing at Thanksgiving. Happy hours on patios. And most importantly, candy corn.

I'm starting to get in a groove with this whole weekly blogging thing too. So yeah, things are looking up. And it's friday. Life is good.

Enjoy your weekend!
