Our Engagement Story

Oh My Goodness! I can’t believe I’m writing this post! This is by far my favorite post so far. I’ll start by saying that I’m not a very patient person. I always like to know what’s going on, so the fact that Jon was able to surprise me amazes me! I had been asking him…

After walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, Jon and I explored the area underneath the bridge referred to as Dumbo. This was a really cute little area along the water.

Ed Sheeran Concert at MetLife

On Saturday Jon and I went to our first concert together. We saw Ed Sheeran play at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and it was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend that you see one of his shows if you like his songs, he’s so talented! I wasn’t always a huge fan of Ed…

25 Life Lessons For My 25th Birthday

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that I’m 25! It always seemed like such an old age to me, yet here I am, ready to embrace it. Maybe now I’ll start saying you’re only as old as you feel, and age is just a number. I had such an amazing 24th year and I know my…
